Bitch Slap Video Sister Batril and Mother Superior

Bitch Slap Video of Mother Superior and Sister Batril talk about their roles on Bitch Slap. This video was released quite some time ago but it has now been added to the Bitch Slap Movie Facebook page. Click on the image to watch two very gifted actors trying to outdo each other. In this instance I think Renee wins this round if only for the rosary beads and praying advice. The look on Lucy's face is just priceless.

Renee Painting on Ebay...

Renee's portait ROC in Rio was recently auctioned on ebay (and a portion of that money was to go to charity). Unfortunately some nasty person (I could use another word but I'll be nice and just leave it at nasty) put in a fraudulent bid.

Renee posted the following on her official forum:

The painting by Lauren that we released on eBay last week, ROC in Rio, had a fraudulent buyer. Anyway, at some point in the future we will put it up for sale. I just wanted you all to know it is an original and one of a kind.

Hopefully the painting will be put back up for auction without someone making a fool of themselves. Ebay is notorious for having fraudulent bids which is very unfortunate because it's such a great service. I guess there will always be someone who will want to be a total boofhead and ruin it for others.

Gabrielle: Top 11 Lesbian/Bi Sidekicks on AfterEllen


afterellen.com made a top lesbian/bi sidekicks ranking and our Gabrielle is [insert drumroll] #1

1. Gabrielle (Renée O'Connor), Xena: Warrior Princess

 

While there were plenty of questions surrounding Gabrielle's relationship with Xena - Are they or aren't they? Will they or won't they? Do they already, and it's just not on-screen? - the one thing everyone agreed on was this: Without Gabrielle, Xena the Warrior Princess would never have survived.

The Battling Bard of Potidaea could talk her way out of (or into) anything; her flair for dramatic storytelling saved them numerous times. She also learned stellar warrior skills, arming herself with an Amazon staff, and agreeing to fight for the greater good.

Together, she and Xena traveled the world, forging literally to hell and back again.

Their subtext was eclipsed only by the number of times Gabrielle saved Xena's life, and in the end Lucy Lawless said it best: "They're married, man."

Because when you find a sidekick like Gabrielle, you want to make it permanent.
