Amber Tamblyn makes debut as Charlie's daughter on Two and A Half Men tonight: "I think maybe I would say that I think we’re describing Jenny as a gay character, and I actually think she’s queer. That would be my thought. I haven’t said that yet, but that’s my thought...Well, that’s specifically for the gay community to understand, in the sense that it’s very complicated for Jenny. I’ve given a lot of thought to that, and I think the queer community is less about definition. It’s more about a community of culture. That would be my thought about it, because a lot of people are like, 'I’ve heard some say she’s bi, and I’ve heard other writers say she’s gay. Which is it?'"

I am very happy. Before I was scared, sometimes I would cry. I was waiting, but now I am different and I am happy.”

Foot cream kills HIV. "In a study performed at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, not only does the drug Ciclopirox completely eradicate infectious HIV from cell cultures, but unlike today's most cutting-edge antiviral treatments, the virus doesn't bounce back when the drug is withheld. This means it may not require a lifetime of use to keep HIV at bay."

Jeff Probst on Survivor's gay Republican Colton Cumbie: "Truthfully, I could have done the season without him but that’s often the case when it comes to casting. We don’t all always agree on who should be on the show. But as his personality began to emerge in these early days it did feel very familiar to the last time he played and began to confirm for me what I felt the first time he played — which is he engineered his own quit. It’s just my personal observation and Colton would certainly tell a different story. But I think there is a consistency to Colton that is hard to deny."
