10 Things You Need To Know About Ming-Na

October 6th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

1) Ming-Na stars in the Syfy network’s new show Stargate Universe, the third TV series in the Stargate franchise.

2) According to our pal Joz at 8 Asians, Ming-Na will play the first lesbian Asian American TV series regular EVAR on the show.

3) Her character is Camille Wray, a “strategically savy (sic) member of the International Oversight Committee (IOA) and the highest ranking one stranded aboard the Destiny.” This is code for “hot lesbian not to be fucked with.”

4) Ming-Na will be engaging in some serious girl-on-girl action with 24‘s Reiko Aylesworth, who plays Wray’s Earthbound life-partner.

5) IRL, Ming-Na is a Steelers fan. Which means Diana would like to make out with her, too.

6) She has been professionally credited as “Ming-Na Wen,” “Ming Wen” and “Ming-Na.”

7) Ming-Na is 45 years old.

8) She has the skin of cherubs after a diamond facial.

9) She may have been the real-life inspiration for Benjamin Button.

10) We would hate on her for looking so damn good, but we’d really like to get the name of her derm.

BABEWATCH: City Council Member Jennifer Kim

February 26th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen


Name: Jennifer Kim

Hails from: Austin, Texas, bitches

Occupation: Austin City Council Member

Why She’s a Babe: Cuz Council Members aren’t supposed to look like that. Because Kim is half-Korean and half-Chinese, reprzent!, and the first Asian-American elected to that position. And because when Jen saw her on CNN at the Texas Democratic Debate last week, she was, like, “Damn, how did Ming-Na get time away from managing a boy band to talk politics?!?”

Kim is up for a tough re-election in May. She is not well-liked in Austin, and several critics have called her “arrogant.” We don’t doubt it, and, oh, who the fuck cares?

Wesley Snipes Some Prayer Hands

January 16th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Dear Wesley Snipes,

Dude. We get it.

You famously lobbied for an Asian actress (Ming-Na) to play your wife in One Night Stand, then life imitated art and you married Korean painter Nikki Park, and you’ve earned a million colored belts in multiple martial-arts disciplines.

Alright already. You love us. You really love us. Apparently you spend so much time in your wife’s native Korea that you consider it your second home (we just hope you’re paying your taxes there unlike, uh, nevermind). But please don’t take your outsized love for our peeps and cultures to this level, it’s really beneath you:

You do understand that you’re going to trial for fraud, right Wesley?

that bracelet gives me hives,
Jen
