The Ladies of The Talk Debate Whether Country Music Will Ever Embrace an Openly Gay Star: VIDEO

Talk

With country music star Ty Herndon making headlines yesterday after coming out as gay, the ladies of The Talk devoted a segment of Friday's show to the news and whether they think the country music industry will ever warm to an openly gay star. 

Sarah Gilbert, who is gay herself, brought up Chely Wright and how Nashville largely ignored her following her 2010 coming out. Aisha Tyler said she was happy Herndon came out because it forces his fans to confront their own anti-gay prejudices while Sheryl Underwood brought up the point that country music listeners shouldn't be lumped into one big homophobic pot and that the stars should give their fans a chance to love them for who they are.

Austin Police Department Welcomes First Openly Transgender Officer: VIDEO

Picture 3Austin Police Department's Senior Officer Greg Abbink introduced himself as the first openly transgender man on the Austin police force during his Transgender Day of Remembrance speech outside of Austin's city hall on Thursday reports KXAN News. Officer Abbink, who joined the force a decade ago as Emily, officially changed his name this past spring. This year also marks the first time a transgender officer was chosen from APD's Lesbian and Gay Police Officers Association to deliver the speech.

Said Abbink:

“I was honored when I was asked to speak,” said Abbink. “I can’t imagine the city of Austin or the Austin Police Department, for that matter, being any more supportive than they are. I consider APD my family. They are truly my brothers and sisters.”

Officer Abbink says coming out as transgender comes with its own challenges, but recognizes there are certain rewards that come with it as well.

Added Abbink:

“I didn’t do this for anyone other than me, and I don’t mean to sound selfish, but I had to do this to be the best person that I can be, so that I can serve the public — the city of Austin — to the best of my ability.

"I'd like to be a role model if I can."

Jimmy Kimmel Takes #CutestSelfieEver With One Direction: VIDEO

Kimmel

The boys of One Direction stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live the other night to help Kimmel take the "Cutest Selfie Ever." Kimmel enlisted the help of the teenage heartthrobs, but the host felt the boys alone weren't cute enough; cue the reinforcements of puppies, teacup kittens, tiny ballerinas, stuffed animals, a unicorn and even Guillermo himself to capture the most sickeningly sweet selfie ever. 

Even Louis Tomlinson appeared in good spirits on the show considering he angrily tweeted a UK reporter last week for insinuating the singer is gay in a tweet the reporter posted. However, it was Niall Horan who decided to go diva this week, donning a tiara from Kimmel's prop box;
