Washington state’s House of Representatives voted yesterday to legalize same-sex marriage, which will make Washington the seventh state in the country to allow lesbians and gays to marry their partners.  Gay marriage is already legal in New York, Washington, D.C., Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, Iowa, and New Hampshire. Both Starbucks and Microsoft, which are based out of Washington, supported the bill and Starbucks even sent a letter to their 150,000 employees asking them to support gay marriage. Governor Chris Gregoire has vowed to sign the legislation into law next week and it will go into effect 90 days later, which will be in June.

Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady photo
  • New York Giants player Brandon Jacobs stuck his cleat in his mouth Tuesday, when he told reporters, “She just needs to be cute and shut up,” in reference to Gisele Bundchen. The Victoria’s Secret model famously stood by her man Tom Brady — and dropped an f-bomb — after his team lost the Super Bowl on Sunday night, blaming his team for the loss. But what’s a supermodel doing opening her mouth? Everyone knows they’re just here to look at! [Houston Chronicle]
  • Kylie Jenner tweeted a pic of Khloe Kardashian with Alex Roldan, the hairdresser who’s been fingered as her biological father, with the caption “First official photo of my sister and her dad! Like father like daughter!” Later in the day Kylie tweeted, “It was a joke everyone! LOL!” C’mon, you really think the Kardashians would drop a bomb like that through their teenage daughter’s Twitter?  [Buzzfeed]
  • Snooki and J-Woww’s “Jersey Shore” spinoff has been cleared to film in my old stomping grounds of Jersey City, New Jersey, off the Grove Street PATH stop. Never have I been so grateful not to live in New Jersey anymore. [Fox News]

  • Alana “Honey Boo Boo Child” Thompson’s pageant mom appeared on “GMA” this morning to defend feeding her daughter “go go juice,” which is two parts Mountain Dew and one part Red Bull. Her insurmountable defense? “There are far worse things. I could be giving her alcohol.” [Styleite]
  • I’m sorry, Kristen Stewart, but scribbling your initials on a pair of Vans with a black Sharpie is the laziness celeb style ambassadorship ever. [NYMag.com]

Today’s Lady News: Judge Orders Abusive Husband To Take Wife To Red Lobster

  • Oh, Florida. A judge in the WTF-is-going-on-here state sentenced a man accused of shoving his wife against a sofa and grabbing her neck to take her on a date to Red Lobster and a bowling alley. No jail time! Cheddar biscuits instead! The judge called this incident “very, very minor” without any serious violence. I call this a warning sign to the wife that her husband is abusive and she should hightail it out of there. I also call this another example of this country not taking violence against women seriously. Domestic violence doesn’t have to be life-threatening for it to be troubling and if this guy gets off with a slap on the wrist (if you could call it that) this time, what’s to stop him from escalating next time?  Today it’s shoving her against a couch and grabbing her neck. What about tomorrow? Hopefully when this couple visits a marriage counselor — also a part of the man’s sentencing — the therapist can persuade the wife that no amount of lobster tails in the world excuses a partner using force against their loved one.

Reason #3,091 that Michelle Obama is awesome: she kicks ass in a potato sack race! The First Lady invited Jimmy Fallon to the White House to film a “Late Night” segment about her Let’s Move campaign, which in addition to inspiring kids to exercise also gets celebs doing cute things while breaking a sweat. Jimmy needs some help in the push-up department, but at least Bo still gave him some congratulatory licks on the face. [Hulu]

  • A “friend” told Life & Style that Kourtney Kardashian is expecting a girl.  [Life & Style]
  • Well this has to be the most boring extortion attempt ever: those “scandalous” photos of a “19 Kids and Counting” cast member that some woman is threatening to reveal unless Discovery Communications pays her $10,000 hush money? They’re just of some random cousin on the show named Amy Duggar. The woman claims she has sexy pics of Amy Duggar in “intimate situations” with a 56-year-old dude. Uh, sorry, no one cares.  [Starpulse]
