    The one who brags about being a fundraiser for conservative republicans makes me ill. I won’t be watching this program.

  • Cam

    It’s interesting that Logo has determined that they can’t have a show about gays without a straight woman taking center stage in it.

    “Taylor said, “We’re younger, we’re hotter, we have less wrinkles, and we’re actually interesting!”

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    Yes, they are younger. No getting around that. And, they may have “fewer” wrinkles, not “less” wrinkles.

    But, HOTTER ????? You can’t prove that from the photos shown here. But, it doesn’t seem to me that any of them are nearly as hot as Rodiney. And, certainly none of them appear to have the bodies of either Reichen or Mike Ruiz. And, interesting? How interesting could a bunch of kids all age 27 or younger actually be?

  • Stephen

    Kill it with fire.

    Television has really gotten awful in the past several years. These stupid reality shows are horrible, with horrible publicity-starved people. From the Real Housewives to this A-list of Wherever, to the MTV or VH-1 shows, it’s just despicable that we have to pay $70 a month to watch crap!

  • Jack E. Jett

    I think it is awesome that Logo decided to include Dallas. There is a reason these folks were selected. They all want to be “the” breakout star. As Taylor is the most mousey and wimpish looking one of the bunch, he really needs to be controversial to get his share of the press. The sad thing is that bible thumping right wing conservative gay men really do exist in Dallas so while I don’t buy this it is really his schtick, I know it exist.

  • Schwarzestiefel

    Why is that some of these 22 and 25 year olds look like they’re 35? I expect twinks to look twinky and not all used up.

  • Ray

    It think they’ll show Dallas for what it is. A bunch of uppity Queens white knuckling it until 2 AM when the bars close. Everyone in Dallas tries to pretend to be all high class but the truth is they are just as cracked out as Atlanta and as down and dirty as New Orleans. They just wait until after the bars closes to do their meth and they won’t walk out with their tricks they have to meet them down the road.

    They couldn’t be less interesting than the ones in NYC. Rodiney with his phony bisexuality and inability to express a thought. Reichen with his mousy fear of everything and overreliance on tired pop psychology. Ryan with his frightening amounts of botox and scary wicked stepmother mentality, Derek….well it’s hard to criticize an empty space. Nyasha, a sad insecure slug who can only brag about fake accomplisments.

    Seriously, you can find people like that at any happy hour.

  • Vinny

    All this proves is that there are pretentious, annoying gays in every major city.

  • Cinesnatch

    I thought this FB page was interesting based on an interaction with cast-member Phillip Willis. Obviously, you can’t believe everything you read, but I’m not sure why someone would go out of their way to make up a story like this:

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Boycott-LOGOs-A-List-Dallas/207693559267288?sk=info

    If it’s true, it’s pretty sad. And, yes, I think it’s worth not watching the show. Every “group” of people has their share of the ignorant, but, as a gay man, this is not an ignorance that I can tolerate or support. Why have some young men become so blase about AIDS? And, not even just blase, but altogether insensitive, rude and clueless. Is there a way to emphasize taking responsibility for your life and having respect for it while not stigmatizing those who do have AIDS? Does it take instilling the fear of GOD to educate people?

    @ Pierre:

    You don’t HAVE to pay $70/month to watch that crap. You have to decide if $70/month is worth the shows you do enjoy out of your cable package. And, if it’s not, then vote with your dollars.

  • Daine

    I’d love to see “NeNe vs Kim” drama here. The biggest sin of the New York series is that it’s dead boring, and too much time is spent talking about who Reichen is dating. I also don’t understand the constant whining about how bad these shows are. There are tons of TV channels with quality programming. It isn’t as if you don’t have the option. The only thing I expect from trash tv is that it is entertaining.

  • doublestandard

    Show me some black/latino dramatic queens anytime…these guys are all for the birds, I dont care how “hot” you may find them.

  • Hephaestion

    The term “A-list” is moronic.

    Atlanta’s gay community is much larger, much more attractive, and much more interesting than Dallas.

    WTF?

  • UWSguy

    This is the best a gay cable network can come up with? A sad state of affairs

  • Justin

    So, a bunch of self-involved, superficial queens, and one quisling? I think I’ll skip it.

  • ChrisC

    I’m sorry, but I think James is REALLY hot.

  • Stephen

    @Hephaestion

    Austin’s gay community is much larger, much more attractive, and much more interesting than Dallas. And 100% more real.

    Ditto with Houston. What’s your point?

    The only reason they picked Dallas is because they know it is going to be a train wreck, and train wrecks make good TV. (Sarah Palin, anyone?)

    What you call “Pretentious Meth Queens who think they are high class” we call “Dallatude”.

    It’s sad that this is what the rest of you are going to think being gay in Tx is like. Austin is practically San Francisco, for Christ’s sake.

  • Ronbo

    If pretentiousness could be bottled LOGO has worked magic.

  • No Homo

    It’s wouldn’t be have as bad if they didn’t call it “the A list”. These people are nobody’s.

    @Vinny: This is the most intelligent reply I have read yet!

  • 4Rest

    @Vinny: This is the most intelligent reply I have read yet! @Jack E. Jett: As insane as it sounds I know a few like that. I dont get it but there it is.

  • 4Rest

    @Stephen: Really, every city is going to we have the best community. Subjective

  • George412

    The Dallas sun has done some damage on these guys. They all might be “younger” than the NYC cast based on their birth dates, but they certainly don’t look it. Most of these guys look like they are in their mid-30s. What’s up with that? Did anyone bother to check their dirver’s licenses? Levi is 25? He looks 35. The 22 year old pudgy faced guy looks 30. They better start moisturizing fast!

  • Jacob Flores

    Ughhhhh….why does my home state get picked on so much? Wait….don’t answer that! Someone get me the heck outta this red state!!!!!

    You nailed it. A buddy of mine had a relative who did work in public relations. On average they would have their clients who were celebs knock 3 to 6 years off their ages. It’s gotten tougher now because the internet makes it easier to look up things like that but they still try it.

  • Rob Moore

    @Hephaestion: True that. I’ve spent more time than I care to remember in Dallas. Atlanta has a much larger and more diverse gay community but, alas, one can still find the vapid, vain, and somewhat useless twats present in every corner of the world.

    Perhaps, the photo did not do him justice, but when I read that everyone is swooning over Levi, I was puzzled as to why. Perhaps, he is an uncommonly talented lover with a cock like a horse? I might watch some episodes just to answer that question alone.

    Personally, I cannot watch the New York series. I tried, but all I could think is that it would be a service to humanity if all of them fell into a crack in the earth. Maybe not Rodiney, who is about as bisexual as I am (not very), but is sort of sweet in his lost little boy way. Halfway through season 1, I quit and have not attempted season 2.

  • Jake

    Levi Looks like Steve Carell and that’s not a good thing!
    He’d better lock down a man if there’s still time! He’s 25! He seriously looks like he’s 35!

  • Ogre Magi

    Bible-study sessions????
    Oh, BARF

  • wtf

    The show that’s going to Ann Coulter on it, and promotes the “gay republican” who actually LIKES her is NOT one that anyone with a brain will be watching. These “GOProud” quislings who cozy up next to pundits and politicians who compare us to pedophiles and murderers are PATHETIC and so is LOGO for promoting one of them, just for the sake of ratings. We’re actually FIGHTING FOR OUR CIVIL RIGHTS and LOGO thinks it’s just fodder for ratings. FUCK YOU LOGO. I’ll also be organizing a writing campaign to RuPaul to get him to take his shows elsewhere, along with WOW in general. Such bullshit.

  • Ted Ross

    I realize what the Housewives shows are and what the A-List shows are: pure escapist entertainment. I, for one, thoroughly enjoy them all for the pure silly camp that they are – no more, no less. At the very least, A-List Dallas is much more interesting than Most Eligible Dallas with its alcoholic, tortured leading queen, straight out of a revival of Boys in the Band! And, A-List’s Levi is so damn hot that he has awakened a yearning for cowboys in me that I never knew existed. Yee-Haw!
