Katherine Brooks is a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry. Chances are if you haven't heard her name, you've still heard of her projects. Her television credits alone sport several Emmy award winning shows that every teen and twenty-something loved to watch in the late 90's and early 2000's. The Osbournes, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, Meet the Barkers, The Simple Life, and of course, The Real World. Shortly after her successful stint in reality television, Brooks moved on to short and feature films, with projects touting cast members such as Erin Kelly (LA Cafe Plays, Ruskin Theatre Group), Taryn Manning (8 Mile, Orange is the New Black), Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under, American Horror Story), and Elizabeth Shue (Blunt Talk, CSI). Brooks' work has been the recipient of several awards, including an Audience Award at Outfest and Best Feature Film at the Melbourne Film Festival. Brooks' feature film credits include Loving Annabelle, Waking Madison, and Lost In Time, which is currently in post production and should be available to audiences this fall.
The ladies at The Laughing Lesbian were lucky enough to receive a great little blurb from Rachel Paulson, discussing the movie Heartland! Rachel sent this blurb involving a movie that focuses on Lauren, and artist in Oklahoma, who falls in love with her brother's girlfriend. This was perfect timing, as the Supreme Court announced over the weekend that same-sex marriage is constitutional and all states must grant a proper marriage license to all same-sex couples wishing to acquire one. Along with this treat, Rachel sent us some photos from the set!
