Lone Star Gays Saddle Up for The A-List: Dallas Premiere Party

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Next »

 

When we first heard that Logo’s next original series was The A-List: Dallas, coming to the network October 10, we had mixed emotions.  

A-List: New York is certainly an embarrassing mess but the shenanigans of the desperate characters have grown on us like a fungus. Could some Dallas queen side-eye like Derek? Or mangle the English language like Rodiney? Or rescue hors d’oeuvres like TJ?

So it was with some trepidation we braved the premiere party for The A-List: Dallas Wednesday night in Chelsea.

Believe it or not, we enjoyed the show.

A-List: The Cowboy Way is stupid in the best, most entertaining way. Sure there are catfights, gossip sessions and cringe-worthy drunken moments. But there are also rodeos, Republicans, real jobs and Bible-study sessions. And it’s actually funny. Whereas the cast of New York all exude a sort of cynical/miserable aura, the Dallas cast seem to be enjoying themselves. (Something people in the Big Apple often forget to do.)  On the red carpet they all seemed to get along in a way that the New York cast most definitely does not.

That doesn’t mean these hellcats don’t have claws: When asked what set Dallas apart from the original series, cast member Taylor said, “We’re younger, we’re hotter, we have less wrinkles, and we’re actually interesting!” Fellow castmate Phillip agreed and added,  “I think we’re funnier!”

We aren’t going to take sides on the hotness debate, but the Dallas cast is definitely younger and funnier (purposefully or not).

 

NEXT: Meet the cast !

      The one who brags about being a fundraiser for conservative republicans makes me ill. I won’t be watching this program.

      It’s interesting that Logo has determined that they can’t have a show about gays without a straight woman taking center stage in it.

      “Taylor said, “We’re younger, we’re hotter, we have less wrinkles, and we’re actually interesting!”

      LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

      Yes, they are younger. No getting around that. And, they may have “fewer” wrinkles, not “less” wrinkles.

      But, HOTTER ????? You can’t prove that from the photos shown here. But, it doesn’t seem to me that any of them are nearly as hot as Rodiney. And, certainly none of them appear to have the bodies of either Reichen or Mike Ruiz. And, interesting? How interesting could a bunch of kids all age 27 or younger actually be?

      Television has really gotten awful in the past several years. These stupid reality shows are horrible, with horrible publicity-starved people. From the Real Housewives to this A-list of Wherever, to the MTV or VH-1 shows, it’s just despicable that we have to pay $70 a month to watch crap!

      I think it is awesome that Logo decided to include Dallas. There is a reason these folks were selected. They all want to be “the” breakout star. As Taylor is the most mousey and wimpish looking one of the bunch, he really needs to be controversial to get his share of the press. The sad thing is that bible thumping right wing conservative gay men really do exist in Dallas so while I don’t buy this it is really his schtick, I know it exist.

      Why is that some of these 22 and 25 year olds look like they’re 35? I expect twinks to look twinky and not all used up.

      It think they’ll show Dallas for what it is. A bunch of uppity Queens white knuckling it until 2 AM when the bars close. Everyone in Dallas tries to pretend to be all high class but the truth is they are just as cracked out as Atlanta and as down and dirty as New Orleans. They just wait until after the bars closes to do their meth and they won’t walk out with their tricks they have to meet them down the road.

      ____________________________________

      They couldn’t be less interesting than the ones in NYC. Rodiney with his phony bisexuality and inability to express a thought. Reichen with his mousy fear of everything and overreliance on tired pop psychology. Ryan with his frightening amounts of botox and scary wicked stepmother mentality, Derek….well it’s hard to criticize an empty space. Nyasha, a sad insecure slug who can only brag about fake accomplisments.

      Seriously, you can find people like that at any happy hour.

      I thought this FB page was interesting based on an interaction with cast-member Phillip Willis. Obviously, you can’t believe everything you read, but I’m not sure why someone would go out of their way to make up a story like this:

      http://www.facebook.com/pages/Boycott-LOGOs-A-List-Dallas/207693559267288?sk=info

      If it’s true, it’s pretty sad. And, yes, I think it’s worth not watching the show. Every “group” of people has their share of the ignorant, but, as a gay man, this is not an ignorance that I can tolerate or support. Why have some young men become so blase about AIDS? And, not even just blase, but altogether insensitive, rude and clueless. Is there a way to emphasize taking responsibility for your life and having respect for it while not stigmatizing those who do have AIDS? Does it take instilling the fear of GOD to educate people?

      @ Pierre:

      You don’t HAVE to pay $70/month to watch that crap. You have to decide if $70/month is worth the shows you do enjoy out of your cable package. And, if it’s not, then vote with your dollars.

      I’d love to see “NeNe vs Kim” drama here. The biggest sin of the New York series is that it’s dead boring, and too much time is spent talking about who Reichen is dating. I also don’t understand the constant whining about how bad these shows are. There are tons of TV channels with quality programming. It isn’t as if you don’t have the option. The only thing I expect from trash tv is that it is entertaining.

      The term “A-list” is moronic.

      Atlanta’s gay community is much larger, much more attractive, and much more interesting than Dallas.

      Austin’s gay community is much larger, much more attractive, and much more interesting than Dallas. And 100% more real.

      Ditto with Houston. What’s your point?

      The only reason they picked Dallas is because they know it is going to be a train wreck, and train wrecks make good TV. (Sarah Palin, anyone?)

      What you call “Pretentious Meth Queens who think they are high class” we call “Dallatude”.

      It’s sad that this is what the rest of you are going to think being gay in Tx is like. Austin is practically San Francisco, for Christ’s sake.

      The Dallas sun has done some damage on these guys. They all might be “younger” than the NYC cast based on their birth dates, but they certainly don’t look it. Most of these guys look like they are in their mid-30s. What’s up with that? Did anyone bother to check their dirver’s licenses? Levi is 25? He looks 35. The 22 year old pudgy faced guy looks 30. They better start moisturizing fast!

      You nailed it. A buddy of mine had a relative who did work in public relations. On average they would have their clients who were celebs knock 3 to 6 years off their ages. It’s gotten tougher now because the internet makes it easier to look up things like that but they still try it.

      @Hephaestion: True that. I’ve spent more time than I care to remember in Dallas. Atlanta has a much larger and more diverse gay community but, alas, one can still find the vapid, vain, and somewhat useless twats present in every corner of the world.

      Perhaps, the photo did not do him justice, but when I read that everyone is swooning over Levi, I was puzzled as to why. Perhaps, he is an uncommonly talented lover with a cock like a horse? I might watch some episodes just to answer that question alone.

      Personally, I cannot watch the New York series. I tried, but all I could think is that it would be a service to humanity if all of them fell into a crack in the earth. Maybe not Rodiney, who is about as bisexual as I am (not very), but is sort of sweet in his lost little boy way. Halfway through season 1, I quit and have not attempted season 2.

      Levi Looks like Steve Carell and that’s not a good thing!
      He’d better lock down a man if there’s still time! He’s 25! He seriously looks like he’s 35!

      I have to admit to losing interest in The Alist New York. So I’m conflicted about the Dallas version. If it’s a bunch of back stabbing drama Ya’ll style that won’t hold my attn for long.

      The show that’s going to Ann Coulter on it, and promotes the “gay republican” who actually LIKES her is NOT one that anyone with a brain will be watching. These “GOProud” quislings who cozy up next to pundits and politicians who compare us to pedophiles and murderers are PATHETIC and so is LOGO for promoting one of them, just for the sake of ratings. We’re actually FIGHTING FOR OUR CIVIL RIGHTS and LOGO thinks it’s just fodder for ratings. FUCK YOU LOGO. I’ll also be organizing a writing campaign to RuPaul to get him to take his shows elsewhere, along with WOW in general. Such bullshit.

      I realize what the Housewives shows are and what the A-List shows are: pure escapist entertainment. I, for one, thoroughly enjoy them all for the pure silly camp that they are – no more, no less. At the very least, A-List Dallas is much more interesting than Most Eligible Dallas with its alcoholic, tortured leading queen, straight out of a revival of Boys in the Band! And, A-List’s Levi is so damn hot that he has awakened a yearning for cowboys in me that I never knew existed. Yee-Haw!
