10Good Things: California Overturns Ban on Gay Marriage

Hooray for my former home state of California, which today overturned its ban on gay marriage, clearing the way for same-sex marriages in that state.

“In contrast to earlier times, our state now recognizes that an individual’s capacity to establish a loving and long-term committed relationship with another person and responsibly to care for and raise children does not depend upon the individual’s sexual orientation,” the court said in the 120-page ruling, “and, more generally, that an individual’s sexual orientation — like a person’s race or gender — does not constitute a legitimate basis upon which to deny or withhold legal rights.

“We therefore conclude that in view of the substance and significance of the fundamental constitutional right to form a family relationship, the California Constitution properly must be interpreted to guarantee this basic civil right to all Californians, whether gay or heterosexual, and to same-sex couples as well as to opposite-sex couples.”

Although this tragically means that my future gay husband Reichen Lehmkuhl can be taken officially off the market, all in all, it’s a very good thing. I’m willing to sacrifice my fantasy life with Reichen for the good of the entire gay community. That’s just the kind of selflessness I’m made of.

7Britney’s Romantic Getaway with Mel Gibson!

Okay, okay.

So it’s not exactly romantic. But it is a getaway. Mel and his wife are heading to their vacation home in Costa Rica, and Britney Spears and her papa are coming along.

I can’t even imagine what they’re all going to talk about.

The topic of Jesus will come up at some point, I’m sure.

27What Is This Fabulous Creature?

And where did Jack Hanna get it and when is mine coming?

Can you imagine the fun that Leo would have with this little guy? Fuck that, can you imagine the fun that I would have with this little guy? There’s room enough in my huge-ass purse for both of them. Leo can have the middle pocket and Little Guy can have the side pocket and they’d both come to work with me and pee on my boss’s desk together.

OMG I need one stat.

At the David Letterman show.

2Ugly Betty Dumps Los Angeles

Ugly Betty is leaving LA for New York.

Following the trend of productions leaving Hell-Ay, Ugly Betty‘s producers decided to move the show because of new tax legislation passed in New York state and NYC that makes it cheaper to produce the show there.

150 LA-based employees will lose their jobs.

The high-profile move puts additional pressure Gov. Schwarzenegger to increase incentives for production in California.

2Angelina Confirms Twinsies: The Transcript

Much to the chagrin of The Today Show, the folks over at Access Hollywood have already posted the transcript of the convo Angie and Jack Black had with Natalie Morales in Cannes.

“You’re gonna have as many as (the) ‘Brady Bunch’ when you have these,” Jack joked.

“It’s confirmed? Is it two?”, Natalie asked.

“Yeah, yeah, we’ve confirmed that already,” Angelina responded. “Well, Jack’s just confirmed it actually.”

“Is that true?”, Jack said jokingly.

“Yeah, you did,” Angelina replied.

“Sorry,” Jack concluded.

“So you’re having twins?”, Natalie asked, as Angelina nodded with a ‘yes.’

“Do you know the sexes of the babies”, Natalie asked. “Or, are you keeping that private?”

“We would like to keep that private,” Angelina said.

“Are you going to stay here in France to deliver?”, Natalie also asked at one point.

“Possibly,” Angelina responded.

The interview footage runs Thursday morning on the Today Show.
