AfterEllen.com's Best Lesbian Week Ever: Sept. 22-28

Posted: Updated:

AfterEllen.com is Logo's site for lesbians and bisexual women in entertainment and media, which means we pride ourselves on knowing all kinds of Sapphic pop-culture facts. Each week we share some of the best tidbits on The Huffington Post in our series "Best Lesbian Week Ever."

Here's who and what was on our raging gay radar this week.

Keeping a leg up: Well, Grey's Anatomy didn't lose a lesbian after last season's plane crash. Not a whole one, anyway.

Oh Go On!: NBC's series about a support group has one of the best lesbian characters on TV, played by Julie White. This week, she took Matthew Perry's character to a lesbian wedding, and everyone thought he was Rachel Maddow. OK, now I can understand if any straight women find him attractive, I guess.

More like heartbreak: Tegan and Sara have announced their new album will be called Hearthrob. Millions of lesbians are expecting the album cover to be just as sexy as what they're picturing in the heads, but our collective minds are probably a lot dirtier than theirs.

Come on, Ilene: Ilene Chaiken has a new show coming to CBS about computer crimes. At what point will one of the most beloved characters die while another's murder goes unsolveld? We'll never know, because we just won't watch it to find out.

Father of the Bride: A lesbian in Hong Kong has a dad willing to give millions of dollars to a man who can woo her into marrying him. Meahwhile, his daughter is LOLing at all the penis pictures she's recieving and says she loves her wife, serving as further proof she's gayer than the day is long.

Meet the Parents: Teri Polo and Sherri Saum have been cast as the lesbian couple who become instamoms in Jennifer Lopez's ABC Family pilot The Fosters. We think that's a definite upgrade from Teri's former film beau, Ben Stiller.

That's just not Wright: Country singer Chely Wright and comedian Margaret Cho went on The Jeff Probst show this week to discuss what people can and can't say about minority groups. No one said the word "dyke," though. You can't say that on daytime television.
