Who knew we could get it up for a straight chick? But when we get a call from frequent guest Lisa Lampanelli (a.k.a. the Lovable Queen of Mean), we’re immediately at attention.
Never one to hold anything back, the insult comic may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but we dare you not to LOL at least once or twice at her quips on pop culture and her own crazy life.
Not only is she a favorite of the gays (whom she regularly and lovingly refers to as “dirty faggots”) but she’s a LGBT-rights champion, too—taking on the Westboro Baptist Church (as we reported earlier this summer) and anyone who has a problem with same-sex lovin’.
The big news now is that Lisa in the process of filming a new reality show pilot for Logo. “You know Logo,” she deadpans, “the one channel that doesn’t have HD so I can look shittier. Thanks Logo!” The show will incorporate her move from stand-up to a a one-woman show on Broadway next fall, her bitchy lunches with her gay friends in New York, and how she’s ignoring her husband Jimmy Big Balls in the process.
On the gays who are after her husband: “Every time he walks by, they say it’s bear-hunting season,” she confesses. “Cornholers, keep your hands off of him. He’s not gay yet!”
On gay marriage: “The night New York passed gay marriage, one gay got engaged in my bathroom,” Lisa tells us. “Isn’t that cute?”
On Eddie Murphy hosting the 2012 Oscars: “That would be so exciting in 1973.”
Hear more funny stuff—on this our !—including her thoughts about Chaz on DTWS, the new Dirty Dancing remake and the major Hollywood actor/director that she outs. (Jokingly, of course. Sorta.) And the cease-and-desist letter she got from Liza’s people, in the 57th minute of our 50th episode!
We’ve also got a chat with the Gay Pimp himself, Jonny McGovern, who tells us all about his upcoming music video, which follow up his steaming-hot hit “Sexy Nerd.”
