You know I love the Page Six prose, hooked on the stuff. So when I see a headline on my favorite page in the world reading: “Are Evan Rachel Wood and Katherine Moennig an item?” I can’t help it, I have to look.
First, we have to clear the Jewish connection for this story. Because we all know Katherine Moennig, of The L Word, is decidedly not Jewish, and, let’s face it, white bread, Raleigh, North Carolina Evan Rachel Wood, who we loved as the nasty Queen Sophie-Anne in True Blood, is also not Jewish.
Except that, on Ray Donovan, one of our most favorite shows this decade, Moennig plays Lena, one of Donovan’s two devoted helpers, and the other one is Avi, and he’s an Israeli thug living in LA, so I believe we’ve completed that circle.
But in the ever-expanding database of huzaju, we pull you into the tribe on some interesting, some would even say questionable grounds. In Evan Rachel Wood’s case, we happened to find out that her mom, actress Sara Lynn Moore, converted to Judaism, and her daughter, in 2003, described herself as Jewish. Ask Wikipedia. And then, in 2012, same daughter stated: “I believe in God but I am not religious. I am spiritual. My definition of God isn’t in any religion. It’s very personal.”
So you just know she’s Jewish, right? Good, we move on to the lesbian part.
Page Six cites a “spy at the Hammer Museum’s annual Gala in the Garden in LA, ” who reported: “Evan Rachel Wood arrived with Kate Moennig. They were holding hands and looked very much like a couple.”
Also: “The source added that the attractive pair headed to a secluded table and ‘kept close all night.’”
Wood has tweeted that she’s bisexual (that’s what we would do if we experienced any intimate change in our psyche – tweet it to the world!), and about Moennig she reported online: “Just saw @katemoennig at a flea market. I turned to mush and ran. Love her!!”
Moennig tweeted back, “you should have said hi.”
Wood also tweeted, “I had a dream @katemoennig and I were stuck in a cab together for hours during pride in NY. We just fell asleep though.”
