HERE COME THE BRIDES Jenkins, Latifah

The National Enquirer is reporting that Queen Latifah has finally decided to make things official with Jeannette Jenkins, her girlfriend of five years, who, incidentally, also happens to be her trainer. (Insert caveat here about how this is from the Enquirer). This is somehow a big deal since Queen Latifah is not technically out of the closet, despite the fact that America has known she’s lesbian ever since she played one in that dopey heist flick Set it Off back in 1996. It’s also seemingly a big deal because Latifah has endorsement deals with Cover Girl, Pizza Hut, and Jenny Craig, among others, and it’s unclear how those companies would react to having an openly gay spokesperson. (Never mind that gay marriage is now legal in California.)
