Tara Says Her Lesbian Love On “True Blood” Is The Real Thing

“When I first got the script, I thought [Tara's new direction] was great … I think [Tara] needed a new lease on life. She totally comes back more zen, and she’s a feisty season one Tara who we all loved … I don’t think [Tara] was expecting [a lesbian relationship]. I think it just happened. I think it was one of those things where you just fall in love with who you fall in love with. I don’t think she labels herself as one thing or the next. She just started hanging out and the next thing you know, she was in love. I don’t think she was in love with Eggs. Every time she was with him she was either stoned or under a spell. I don’t think that was real. I think it’s going to take her some time to realize that, but I think what she has now is a little more significant.”

—Rutina Wesley, who plays Tara on “True Blood,” talks to Entertainment Weekly about her character’s plot twists in season four. In last night’s episode, we discovered that Tara had run way from Bon Temps, is now going by the name Toni, and has a girlfriend. Woo-hoo! I’m thrilled Rutina thinks that she and her new love have staying power. Here’s hoping no one offs this new lady. [EW]
