The CW Marketed Trashy Socialite Show High Society With ‘Tranny’ Soundbites. And Now It’s Sorry

[flv:http://www.queerty.com/wp/docs/2010/03/highsocietytrailer1.mp4 http://www.queerty.com/wp/docs/2010/03/devorahhsboard.jpg 650 400]

This is not the “Real Look” trailer for The CW’s High Society, but it includes much of the same footage, which you’ll care about because you probably won’t be able to find the original trailer for the trashy “socialite” show online. Because The CW pulled it. Because GLAAD complained. Because in it, sad NYC nightlife social climber Jules Kirby (more on her sad life here) admitted to using the “N-word” (not in the above clip), and Social Life editor Devorah Rose calls a party-goer a “tranny” (as seen in the above clip) after being told she “looks like a man” during this party.

With GLAAD (and the blogs!) on its back, The CW promised to yank the trailer; it’s already gone from YouTube, but taking it out of television circulation could take longer. (The show premires March 10.) Kirby, meanwhile, is in hiding, as people like she should be. Kirby, in the first episode, touts that she’s not friends with blacks, Jews, or gays, which is amusing, because the show features at least two homos, including Paper magazine scribe Paul Johnson-Calderon, who is a brat, and knows it, and might also be a trust fund thief.

The same way that Jersey Shore asked us to care about the program by tantalizing us with domestic violence, High Society wants viewers to tune in because of its controversial, anti-politically correct dialogue. This counts as skilled marketing, until activist groups start screaming.

      Oh please we all know how it is to be used to get to the top. This is not much of a top. Some people will use their friends. I doubt Jules Kirby says she hates gays as she works with many of them. Devorah Rose cannot insult the transvestites as he is one. Tinsley Mortimer and Dabney Mercer are the disturbed ones of the bunch: boring, lying, and old. I have no interest in those. I do not know who any of the other cast are but am content that they are homosexuals.

      Major Blaze at 21 Downing

      New York, New York (March 1, 2010) – Manhattan’s famed West Village experienced its first major fire of the year when a trailer truck carrying parting gifts for the game show “Jeopardy” plowed into a ground floor office at 21 Downing Street, setting the building fiercely ablaze.

      According to bystanders, the truck “swerved suddenly” to avoid a man walking a dog.

      Three workers were killed in the conflagration, and a fourth was seen fleeing with a toaster oven and three Home Editions of the game show “Jeopardy.”

      According to authorities, some of the parting gifts had also been destined for Drew Carey’s “The Price is Right.” Mr. Carey could not be reached for comment.

      Actor Robert Pattison, dining at a nearby fish restaurant, said the building went up like “napalm” and that plumes of foul-smelling smoke from the blaze blew through local streets.

      “It smelled like a mixture of tuna helper and bad decisions,” said the star of the Twilight Sage vampire series.

      Neighbors watching the blaze said the building had been the source of numerous harassment and stalking complaints over the years.

      But records discovered in a fireproof file cabinet after the blaze indicate the building was the headquarters of a citywide shoplifting ring that utilized dozens of Haitian orphans.

      The building was briefly famous in the late 1990s as the backdrop for a scene in Martin Scorsese’s “Analzye This,” starring Robert De Niro and Billy Crystal.
