If Lifetime Is Television For Women and Gay Men, Is Bravo Bi?

andycohenpool

I always saying we’re bi, but I think it’s kind of how I view myself being gay—it’s just one of things that I am. So Bravo may or may not be gay, but I think there’s a lot of other things going on. I think for the gay people on Bravo, it’s one of the things that they are—they’re not on Bravo because they’re gay. The people that are gay on Bravo, like Brad on Rachel Zoe or Jeff on Flipping Out, they’re gay but they’re also great at what they do and that’s why they’re on Bravo and that’s important.

      They gave Jackie Warner another show. The woman who mocked a breast cancer survivor for having implants, then refused to admit it, blamed her staff, etc… This was after she slept with her employees and was basically an allaround nightmare. So nice to see that Bravo is finding the Gay Equivilants of the Real Housewives of New Jersey to put out there. siiigh.

      It’s ‘buy-sexual’ bravo (as in, buy me something nice and I’ll sleep with you), not bi-sexual bravo. Lifetime is television for women. Bravo is television for gay men. Andy is making serious cash money on the tears of the rich and fabulous. Just like Jerry Springer did on the poor.

      Andy Cohen, that statement is as contorted as the facial expressions you are always pulling on your talk show.

      I’m not sure how airing like 50 different shows about “housewives” with bad attitudes and worse plastic surgery is gay. Didn’t Bravo start out as a highbrow network? Now it’s just a bunch of trash.

      His statement is all over the place. How did he get to be so high on the Bravo totem pole?

      Meh, I’m bi and I wouldn’t watch Bravo, Lifetime, or very much at all for that matter. I do, however, look rather more than slightly pastey compared to his tan.

      I literally watch every show on Bravo and I have absolutely no shame.

      I quit watching Lifetime when The Golden Girls came out on DVD. I also remember when Bravo was a pretty good performing arts channel. It was also not available on my cable service at the time. God how I hate Time Warner Cable. I’ll never forgive them for taking off HDNet Movies.

      But Bravo is gayer than an interior decorator skipping down Castro Street humming showtunes. About 10 times gayer. And I mean in a stereotypical way. Other than Real Housewives of Wherever We Could Afford to Send A Non-Union Crew We Assembled From A Craigslist Ad, it makes LOGO redundant.

      Geez, Queerty, I’m looking for evidence to support my moniker, but you’re not exactly giving me a lot to work with.

      BRAVO is not the gay channel. it never actually pushes any GAY AGENDA or talks about GAY ISSUES or even equality, support, or acceptance.

      It does have programming gay men can enjoy as it is the ARTS Channel but it does nothing for the gay community.

      I’m tired of Queens who call Bravo the gay channel and Details a gay magazine.
