Leisha Hailey Of “The L Word” Kicked Off Flight For Kissing Girlfriend

Leisha Hailey of "The L Word"

Celebrities seem to get into trouble on airplanes way too often. Usually, they did something kind of wack—like when Gerard Depardieu emptied his bladder or when Josh Duhamel refused to get off his BlackBerry. But when Leisha Hailey of “The L-Word” got booted off a Southwest Airlines flight yesterday, she says it was for a very different reason. She says she was kicked off the flight for kissing her girlfriend.

“I have been discriminated against by @SouthwestAir. Flt. attendant said that it was a ‘family’ airline and kissing was not ok,” she tweeted yesterday after the incident. “This is an outrage. I demand a public apology by @SouthwestAir and a refund. Hate is not a family value. I will never fly this airline.”

She claims to audio and video of the entire incident, and is now calling for a boycott.

Kiss “The L Word” Goodbye

The final season of “The L Word” is almost over, tear! This Sunday, the last episode of the groundbreaking show will air. Ilene Chaiken, the creator of the Showtime hit, lamented that she thought there would be more gayelle hours of TV power on the air before hers came to an end. While LOGO has done a great job of identifying what we girls want to see — like the prison drama, “Bad Girls,” and”Curl Girls,” about lesbian surfers — what about the primetime networks?! We’ve taken it upon ourselves to pitch some shows we’d totally watch. Network execs, call us!

The 10 Best Lesbian Kisses On The Boob Tube

Yesterday, on “All My Children,” Reese and Bianca got married, creating a milestone in matrimony. The first lesbian wedding on daytime TV was a real Kleenex-fest! With enough tears of joy to float everyone’s boat, the whole affair was a beautiful spectacle and a timely push for equal rights, in light of the struggle to stop Prop 8. But dang girls, you just got hitched — we could have used some more hot action to go with those warm fuzzies! And the same sex lovin’ is headed from daytime to primetime — supposedly Eva Longoria and Teri Hatcher are slated to suck face on this season of “Desperate Housewives.” It’s hard to imagine that this peck on “L.A. Law” caused such a scandal back in 1991! I’ve put a thermometer in my mouth with more passion.

MUSIC

  • Pink Funhouse
    Pink’s post-divorce record drops today, but we’ve already be bopping our head to her single “So What,” which can pretty much been found on the radio at all times on one station or another. Of all of Pink’s albums, this one feels the most personal, she’s exercising the demons from her divorce. The album shares the title with one of Iggy Pop and The Stooges’ opuses, but the party fun house they were talking about isn’t anything like the empty remains of the domicile she shared with her ex-husband. Yet, somehow Pink’s pain makes for great, fun pop songs. Take notes Alanis Morrissette.
