TV: I’m Married To A…

That old adage “love has no boundaries” gets a workout in the reality-based series I’m Married To A…, especially in this week’s episode which looks at the unconventional relationship between Lolly and her husband Josh, a Mormon who’s decided to come out as gay. Will the Bachmanns be watching when the episode airs Tuesday night on VH-1? Watch a preview below.


MUSIC: Daft Punk, Random Access Memories

The French duo’s first studio album in eight years isn’t the balls-out party record some fans hoped for — so don’t expect another “Around the World” or “One More Time” here. It is, however, a hypnotic musical love letter to late’70s-early ’80s electropop that inspired them and features dazzling collaborations with Julian Casablancas, Pharrell Williams and Paul Williams (!), plus there’s the track “Giorgio By Moroder,” which offers an ode to the great electronic music pioneer.


EVENT: Matinee Las Vegas

Look out Sin City! 8,000 men are expected to descend on the desert metropolis for the summer’s most sizzling dance festival today through Monday. Don’t miss Saturday’s concert by Pussycat Dolls’ Jessica Sutta.

TV: Behind the Candelabra

The tempestuous May-December love affair between flamboyant entertainer Liberace and Scott Thorson — from their first meeting backstage to their bitter public breakup — provides Michael Douglas  and Matt Damon with savory roles and their performances rank among their best ever. There’re also juicy turns from out actor Cheyenne Jackson, Debbie Reynolds, Rob Lowe and Scott Bakula. All in all, the year’s most-anticipated gay film (which won’t be be seen in theaters because studios deemed it too gay —their loss!) completely lives up to the anticipation and director Steven Soderbergh doesn’t skimp on depicting the sexual relationship between the two men. Catch the premiere on HBO May 26. A soundtrack of the film and reissue of Thorson’s book on which the film is based are also both now available.
