'True Blood' actress Rutina Wesley comes out, engaged to girlfriend

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Rutina Wesley, who played human-turned-vampire Tara Thornton on the HBO series 'True Blood,' officially came out last week to colleagues and fans on Instagram by announcing her engagement to her girlfriend on November 18. Posting a quote that read: 'Overthinking is the biggest cause of our unhappiness. Keep yourself occupied. Keep your mind off things that don't help you.' And posting a series of photos of herself and girlfriend Shonda, a chef in New Orleans, the Las Vegas-born actress revealed a piece of her personal life that she had kept secret up until then. Immediately, followers began posting congratulatory notes, some with rainbow, heart and ring emojis.

Wesley shared the good news with the world just two days before she received good news herself, an Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series nomination for this year's NAACP Image Awards for her work on the TV drama 'Queen Sugar,' a show created by Oscar-nominated writer-director Ava DuVernay (Selma) and produced by Oprah Winfrey. Since the completion of 'True Blood,' which lasted 7 seasons and featured the character of Tara having a bisexual relationship with a female vampire bar owner, Wesley has guest starred in the TV shows 'Arrow' and 'Hannibal.'

In 2013, Wesley won an NAACP Image Award for Best Supporting Actress, for her work on 'True Blood,' which also netted her a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Ensemble in a Drama Series in 2010. 'Queen Sugar,' based on the book of the same title, that follows the lives of three siblings in Louisiana who are left with an 800-acre farm as an inheritance when their father dies, has been renewed for a third season.
