'Entourage' star says Lynch's lesbian joke wasn't fair

Jane Lynch delivered one of her funniest lines during the Emmys last night when she introduced the stars of "Entourage" to the stage.

"A lot people are very curious as to why I'm a lesbian — ladies and gentleman, the cast of Entourage," she cracked.

But was the "Glee" star off the mark about the testosterone-fueled series? Kevin Dillon, aka Johnny Drama, thinks so...

"It was funny, but I think it's not fair at the same time," Dillon told me at the HBO party at the Pacific Design Center. "We all have good senses of humor but I think the men of 'Entourage' treat women well for the most part.

"Maybe she was going on season one when everyone in the world was like, 'That show is so male chauvinistic,' and everybody was down on us," he continued. "But since then, E has had a longtime relationship. Vince has always treated women politely and even Turtle lately. I didn't take offense but that's not what the show is about."

Perhaps they could find a part for Lynch in the upcoming "Entourage" movie? "I know Mark Wahlberg wants to do it right away," Dillon said of the much-talked about flick. "They have to write it first, but we should do it soon while we still have the heat from the show. You don't want people to forget about it too much."

The HBO party was the place to be. Guests included "Glee" stars Dianna Agron, Amber Riley, Jenna Ushkowitz, Darren Criss and Harry Shum Jr., Emmy winners like Julie Bowen, Melissa McCarthy and Guy Pearce, a newly single Joe Manganiello, Jeremy Piven, Chris Noth, William H. Macy, Aziz Asari, Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Seth McFarlane, Jon Voight, Jon Hamm, Sofia Vergara, Olivia Munn, Julia Stiles, Alan Cumming, Kathy Griffin and Denis O'Hare, among so many others.

The pink and orange-decorated party included touchup stations from Stila cosmetics and hair stylist Oscar Blandi, plus desserts like chocolate covered Pop Rocks on a stick.
