Leia and Laverne Are a Couple? Huh. I'd Ship It.

In “grain of salt” news, the Enquirer is reporting that there’s a new hot, young couple in town: Carrie Fisher and Penny Marshall.

According to that bastion of journalistic integrity, Marshall “made the decision to reveal her sexuality when she got the news that she’d beaten cancer after a courageous life-or-death battle that lasted four years.”

The Enquirer gets a bad rap, often deservedly so. But sometimes they get it right—righter and long before anyone else. So maybe this is legit, and maybe they played middle-aged-believable-lesbian Mad Libs. The story is accompanied by a photo of the two at a basketball game, so it’s entirely plausible that the Enquirer writing staff just went “SPORTS + SUNGLASSES = LESBIANS.” Who knows.

That said, if Penny Marshall got herself cancer-free and decided to turn her best friend into her breast friend, that’s fantastic. She got her health and a piece of this?

I’d call it a win. Schli-mazel tov, ladies!
