Meet More of the 'Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys' Nashville Cast
Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys has a new season premiering Friday, November 18. This time the focus is on gay men and their favorite gal pals living in Nashville, TN and the preview trailer looks pretty great. Yesterday we introduced you to Tenisha and Jared as well as Kristin & Peter —two of the couples featured on the show. Below are the remaining couples, and they're just as interesting and complex as any we've seen on TV in recent years. Check it!
Sherrié & Shane
From the Sundance Channel page: "Australian-born Sherrié is a former actress who appeared on series such as The Facts of Life and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air."
HOLD UP! We needed to investigate that business. Turns out, Sherrie Veronica Krenn is an Australian actress and singer, known professionally as Sherrié Austin. She played exchange student Pippa McKenna on The Facts of Life in the late 1980s, and appeared as "Lady Penelope" on episode #20 of Fresh Prince. We dug up a photo from Facts. See below. You're welcome.
Anyway, Shane and Sherrié met while Sherrié was doing a Broadway show and both are singer-songwriters looking for their big break (though Sherríe's solo album, Circus Girl, came out this month). Gay boy Shane is a self-proclaimed “Jesus Freak in a red state” who spends at least two hours each morning praying and has been in a relationship with his partner Matt for six years. According to the website, "Although they’re colleagues, Shane and Sherrié consider themselves extreme opposites who attract, but that helps to fuel their creative processes. Through their professional and personal struggles, Sherrié and Shane are always there for one another with unconditional love and support."
Olivia & Brent
Brent was named one of Nashville's "25 Most Beautiful People" by Nashville Lifestyles magazine and is just starting his event planning business. Olivia was born to an influential family, raised in Nashville, has two young daughters, is a business owner— and is still a true southern belle. The two met at a philanthropic event and have been inseparable ever since.
On the surface this seems pretty simplistic, but their newly-formed friendship has some serious substance. When Brent leaves an abusive relationship, which we rarely hear about or discuss in the gay community, it's Olivia who's there for him. In turn, she leans on Brent for support. While their dramatic personalities can sometimes clash, there is a passion in their friendship that always brings them back together.
