Watching this preview clip of next week’s A-List: New York brought back memories of seeing Nick Adams in La Cage Aux Folles: hot body, but makes a terrible woman. [via]
Silly frivolous queens!…..Meanwhile, did anyone watch that wreck of a show Project Runway last night?! Gretchen wins?!
@pete: Yeah, what the fuck was that? Her clothes looked post-apocolyptic! She’s done to fashion what Restoration Hardware has done to interior design. Ghastly! Fuck Lifetime and Nina Garcia and Michael Kors.
They were ALWAYS going to have Gretchen win. I told that to somebody as soon as they gave her the win for that hideous JUMPSUIT! A Jumpsuit…really?! Where are they going to sell it? a 1984 Esprit catalogue?
And then the last few weeks have been all about “Gretchen Redemption” her teary eyed talking about how her relationship fell apart…um yeah, because you’re a bitch.
@pete: I watched it. And they all suck IMO so I didn’t care that she won. Plus, the 2 judges who really have more knowledge of the industry dug her clothes for some reason, so I stand behind them. Heidi really doesn’t know as much as they do.
I felt most of the clothes that came down the runway this season was not very good. Mondo is one note to me. Gretchen too granola. Andy = one note. Michael C = blech. The others not very good.
Oh and I couldn’t help myself but be shocked. SHOCKED. NO, REALLY SHOCKED!!! At Jessica Simpson who looked pregnant. It’s sad that as a celeb you must be skinny but really, she and Kelly Clarkson would look must better if they lost weight. I know, it’s a terrible thing to say but it’s sadly true. I sound like Derreck or TJ now.
I just thought Mondo should win. After the judges aufed Michael C. for being one-note Charlie in the color choice, down the runway comes Gretchen’s models in the same damn fabric, one after the other. Same with Andy’s collection. Grey! At least Mondo’s outfits had some pop to them. Granted, some of his stuff was awful…..Was Jessica Simpson almost unrecognizeable? Of course her dress was Michael Kors…..
@scott ny’er: Tue, it’s a shame, but….remember, her only job is to be hot. That is it. You don’t even have to work 8 hours a day to do that. She could work 2 hours a day, and work six hours less than most people and be hot. So I don’t have a lot of sympathy.
Reichen – dress – gag – bad stereotypes reinforced…
Oh for crying out loud it’s a costume party, he’s supposed to look like a wreck.
also because the preschool make up look is less threatening to Reichen’s ego and masculinity and sadly the audience. He’s got the bone structure, a good drag makeup artist could have turned him out really pretty.
Reichen looks like Marlene Deitrich after being on steroids for five years. And Derek looks and sounds like…..well, who she really is.
Why does Reichen hang out with those empty-headed people? He had a great husband with a brain and he left him. Sad.
@hephaestion: He’s hanging out with them because they are all in the same reality TV show cast. Reichen didn’t even live in the same city as these people before the show. The only one he was previously closely associated with is his cute sweet sensible seeming boyfriend who he treats like shit. Chip was probably lucky to escape.
@rrr: I think Chip on Amazing Race, was the one with anger problems. BUT, he’s probably laughing so hard at Reichen now and ur probably right, he was lucky to escape as was Lance.
I wonder if any of the “A” listers really knew each other before this made up show.
I mean, Reichen, doesn’t look like he’d hang with any of these people. Rodiney, I think finds the lot of them tiresome and needs the money and possibly the connections. I have no idea why Mike Ruiz did this show.
These people are so RIDICULOUSLY not A-Listers. NYC A-listers are the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Mariah Carey, Michael Bloomberg, and The Donald. These wrecks are barely in the category of “A Gays”. Mike Ruiz is an A Gay, but the rest? I almost feel sad for them.
@scott ny’er: Mike did the show hoping it would raise his profile enough that he could get a reality show of his own going. I’ve seen some interviews with these guys around, including one with Mike where he explained his motives. He makes guest appearances on reality shows like Kathy Griffin’s Life on the D-list and a postive response from people that makes him think a reality show for him could work but his ideas for projects haven’t been able to get off the ground because he isn’t well known enough to reassure executives that he’d have an audience. I think he was also hoping the show would be more positive and uplifting than it turned out to be.
Reichen has said in interview he hadn’t known any of the cast except for Rodiney his boyfriend and Austin who he’d met briefly before. Rodiney didn’t know anyone but Reichen and has compared the experience to being at school because you don’t get to pick the people who are around you and some of them are being mean.
The three queens trying to butch it up? What a mess they all are, but those bitter three are the worst.
@rrr: Hey. Thanks for the background info. It explains a lot. I catch these looks (mostly from Rodiney) that seem to say, “man, i can’t believe I’m stuck with these a-holes.” And that whole Derreck saying he won’t have anything to do with Austin and yet CONTINUES to be near Austin. And Austin saying he didn’t want to bring his “fiance” around to meet TJ and TJ’s boss. And then they sit there thru lunch being interrogated by TJ. I know if that was me, I’d be like, that’s it. We’re not answering any more of your Enquirer questions.
It’s like a weird form of Big Brother except NYC is the Big Brother house. And they are all stuck with each other. LOL.
Poor Mike. I think this show and that DragRace crap was not the best shows to promote himself but what do I know, I’m writing on this crappy board and he’s on TV.
Unlike RuPaul, Reichen looks better as a man.
If LOGO re-news a second season of “The A LIst”, I will never watch anything on that network, again. That god awful show has set the cause of gay rights back 30 years.
