    Maybe they should get rid of Tyra to boost ratings.

    Oh Tyra, my fav drag queen…Miss J is wonderful.

    Saw 2012 last night. It might have been an alright movie if it were half as long. Entirely too much filler, most of which only served to highlight the horrid performances by the cast. Woody Harrelson was amusing, at least, for the five or so minutes of screen time he got.

    Saw 2012 last night. Way too long and way too many Hallmark moments. Really corny. Special effects were terrific, of course, but I wish Hollywood would go back to spending a few bucks on GOOD
    writers. Even spectacular special effects need a little story, not to mention an edge. Did stay to listen to Adam do the theme song over the closing credits, though. LOL

    If they do, it is purely for a ratings boost because Tyra and Miss Jay are like BFF’s.

    Why do people spell it “Miss J?” His real name is Jay.

    I liked the story that Tyra told about Miss Jay’s coming out to his mother — or her outing him by just acknowledging he was gay before he got around to telling her. That’s how my coming out was and I wish it were that easy for everyone.

    The show should have been canceled a long time ago – it’s an embarassment to Gays and real talented designers of which Jay is obviously not. Tyra is short for Tyrant as everyone can testify to this Monster we are creating to knock Oprah off-air.
