Besides Reichen Lehmkuhl, LOGO’s Reality Show Features a Gay Republican and an Interracial Couple

The new LOGO reality show Reichen Lehmkuhl is going to be on? The one he is defending as an authentic representation of gay life? It finally has a name and a cast.

It is not Kept. It is not The Real Househusbands of New York or even The Real Socialites of New York. It is to be called A-List New York, says Musto, and castmates include Big City Video’s Mike Cruz (a-who?) photographer Mike Ruiz, up-and-comer Jack Hazzan (last Facebook update: “I really miss president Bush. :-(“), and an interracial couple (how do I even Google that?).

These folks are about to get really famous! Or, you know, at least gay famous. Or, probably more accurately, “LOGO famous.” (Quick: Name the cast of Bear Run!)

FINE. At the very least, Hazzan (pictured) will probably pick up a few dozen more Twitter followers — to add to his, eek, 164 current ones.

Nevermind that calling the show A-List New York is about as inaccurate as a show title can get, but rest assured, this blogger will remain in full support of exploitative reality shows that manage to make Fire Island look glam.

      Isn’t everything in the gay media just an incestuous circle-jerk of vain, vapid assholes that think of themselves as “A” list? Meanwhile the rest of gay American (99.999%) couldn’t care less. And LOGO wonders why barely anyone watches them…

      How can you have a show called “A-List New York” that does not include Jonny McGovern, Linda James, Erickatoure Aviance, Adam Joseph, Martin Beauchamp, Kevin Aviance, Daniel Nardicio, shall I continue?

      Oh no, not this travesty. I already see it: cat fights, bitch fights, frivolity, vapid queens, muscle boys go go dancing, blah blah blah. In other words, every stereotypical situation that we are accused of will be here parading. Straights can be become asses out of themselves on reality tv. I guess we┬┤re no different. But geez, should not we aspire to something better? Something about the REAL lives of gay men in America?

      Umm, like maybe it would be a good idea to actually watch the show first before criticizing it?

      I have lived in NYC for over 15 years and from reading all the gay mags in this time and going out none of these people POP as “A listers”. The biggest name is Reichen and he isn’t even a New Yorker or an “A lister”! They had to import him from LA to be on this show. So being on a reality show is all it takes to be considered an “A lister”? How real is it going to be when they aren’t even New Yorkers or true “A listers”?

      NYC is a big city and this is the best that Logo could come up with for their cast? I have a feeling true “A listers” wouldn’t be caught dead on this show so they had to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

      If it’s on Logo they aren’t going to become famous. Most gays I know don’t even watch that channel.

      I have to go with the comment above. Are any of these guys New Yorkers? What makes them “A-List” as apposed to ordinary? If you’re in a biracial couple, or workout, does that make you television “A-list” worthy? I don’t get it.

      Didn’t Logo learn anything from Howard Bragman stating an A List Celeb was coming out? If you are going to title something the A-LIST NEW YORK shouldn’t the people truly be A listers? Are any of these guy gay Wall Streeters? Doctors? Lawyers? Broadway Actors? The real money professions that drive Fire Island, the Hamptons, etc? Sounds like the guys that are cast are only A-List because they were cast on this show. Sounds like WANNABE A-LISTERS or Z-LIST NEW YORK are better titles. If Kathi Griffin is the D-List these guys don’t even rank that high in the alphabet.

      I think I’m going to pass on this show. Reichen was more fun to look at on Dante’s Cove.

      How can you possibly have an “accurate depiction of gay life” and have it set in New York City. Gays and Lesbians in NYC are nothing like gays and lesbians in the rest of the country. If you want an accurate depiction of what gay life is for most Americans then set it in some small town in Alabama.

      Maybe “A List” means A/M/A/T/E/U/R?!
      Or “Almost unknown”?!

      Reichen & LOGO should be wrackin’ their brains to keep this reality show from being a trainwreck.

      Is there anything more tedious than someone who calls himself “an A-lister”? If your highest priority in life is to get on the select invite list of your local bar, then you need to rethink your life.

      LOGO is just full of ill-conceived concepts. What a waste of valuable cable bandwidth. Did ANYONE ever watch that Robert Verdi show? It seemed equally inane when it was announced but I have to admit I never bothered to watch.

      @AxelDC: Agreed! There’s a big wide world out there, and they don’t give a damn if you’re a fixture on the nightclub scene, or a club promoter or a soft-core porn star. Which, let’s face it, is what most of these supposed gay celebs really are.

      Oh I know they could have those “A-listers” Marc Jabocs and his ex hubby and the trashy porn star Jacobs was dating. That’s a true reflection of gay life in America, no?

      The problem is that Reichen is handsome with a good body, and the editor of this rag has a face made for anonymous internet blogs (or radio).

      Not sure what you mean by this. From photos I have seen Queerty’s editor is a handsome guy. At least he has a job that involves using his brain and not simply a career based on who he has dated like Reichen.

      @OrchidIslander: And Sordid Lives. You have to wonder if Logo actually wants an audience. It sure doesn’t seem that way. And, seriously, “A-List”?? Who uses that terms except vapid, shallow homos that think the world revolves around their egos. So-called A-listers are always self-appointed. How about a show about real gay people. Something someone would actually watch?

      @petrov: Reichen’s face is all plastic surgery. Just do a little digging and look at an old photo of him in the air force and you will see what I mean.
