    This has been a really, really revolting experience. I recorded the series and must admit that I did it mostly because Rodiney is hot as hell and Reichen sort of is except when he’s crying like some teenage girl that just learned that Justin Bieber is really a lesbian into butch lesbians rather than girly girls. Most weeks, I can only watch it in five or ten minute increments so that it can take an entire week to finally work through an episode. A couple of times, I start and two minutes in, I deleted the episode and take a bath to scrub off the top two layers of skin. I don’t think I have ever seen a quantum of queens quite as unlikable as these. I actually hate Derek even though I have never and probably will never meet the whatever he is. TJ is like a remora that sucks onto the underside of Derek and the bleached blond (Ryan is it) eating the stray morsels floating off their latest kills. Reichen has to be one of the most narcissistic people around. I hope Chip and Lance realize how fortunate they are to be rid of that drama queen. Rodiney needs to remove himself from this group of shallow water mud puppies although I cannot say I really care. If he is dumb enough to come back for Reichen then he just might be as dumb as your friend says. It is my hope that Derek throws another of his “fabulous” parties then wakes up a day or two later in some remote hut in the middle of Arizona or Nevada.

    If there is a second season, I won’t record it and I won’t watch it. Oh, and I hope Austen’s cute ‘fiancé’ watches this series before he actually enters into a civil union with that midwestern steer. Could you imagine what a nightmare that would turn into.

    So the soul crushing minstrel adventures of Mike Ruiz and the six mental dwarves is finally over. I feel like Dante after he crawled to freedom from Hell’s ninth circle after bearing witness to the most depraved and sickening displays of human suffering ever conceived. It’s over, I think I lost a solid third of my brain cells, and I hate myself a for watching.

    Now quick, someone send a Hazmat team out to Reichen’s lake house to purge that place with a nice, cleansing fire. God only knows what sort of samples they left behind.

    All the gossip I’ve heard about Rodiney is that he is totally a top, which would be my first cause to doubt your friend’s knowledge. A second thing would be that he doesn’t come across as stupid to me, just foreign, emotional and out of place. Thirdly, I don’t believe that a mean diva could have restrained himself for the four months of filming with all that provocation from bitchy castmates or that the A-list producers would have left out diva behavior with all its drama or that his castmates wouldn’t have mentioned such stuff in interviews if it legitimately existed. Fourthly, I don’t believe for a second he’s a good enough actor to have produced a “performance” like this, and he sure wouldn’t be capable of it if he was as dumb as your friend claimed.

    @Rob Moore: I kind of agree with you about Rodiney and Austen’s cute “fiance”.

    I only watch this show for Rodiney. And I hope he doesn’t have to do this show again and be with “these people (as he said on this show and I was like, hell, yeah)” again. But, I think he really does love Reichen and that is over-ruling his common sense about leaving Reichen, etc. Rodiney has true heart and is of course, beautiful.

    I read an interesting interview with Reichen and afterElton. At one point he stated that he and Rodiney never said bad things about others. And that is true. Reichen does seem very self-absorbed, he’s never asking about other people’s lives, etc. So, maybe that’s why he comes off as boring. There seems to be on facet to him only. Him and himself. Maybe we just don’t see that other side of him.

    Austen’s cute “fiance” seemed like a good bloke as well, like Rodiney. So, I agree, that I hope he sees this horror show and wises up. Because I guess, Austin is a good actor and is able to fool people. I know I liked him in the beginning of this show. And then saw him as the crazy, mofo, asswipe he truly is.

    I was right about Ryan, TJ, Dereck tho. First time I saw them, I saw them as bitchy queens and they are (they are so mean girls). By this last episode, I couldn’t care what happens to them, good or bad, because they are so despicable. I was like, oh, baby for Ryan, oh fly on the wall, whatever. Conversely, if the baby thing fell through, I would feel the same. The mean girls are repugnant. As is Austin.

    BTW, this latest recap was so much better that the real show. And great quote, “…and then TJ starts tearing up, because he’s an emotional chameleon that can only display whatever emotion the next person next to him is feeling, which explains why he attacked Rodiney on behalf of Austin several episodes back. Poor shaved TJ lives in Brooklyn… it’s not his fault! They’re all emotional scavengers out in Bushwick.” You are so on about TJ being an emotional chameleon. Sad, poor, TJ. No emotion chip in his body. Even ST:TNG’s Data got one finally.

    @rob moore.
    Thankyou for your selfless act of public service – watching crap so I don’t have to.
    You do realise you don’t get those brain cells back, right? Oh, and loved the marine biology theme. Snark AND education win/win!

  • tofer david

    dont forget that there is a reunion special next monday!

    @Rob Moore: Oh god. It’s not that bad. If you guys hate the show so much then change the channel. You’re just a bitchy and queeny as the boys on the A-List honey. No one wants to read some 50 year old queen bitching.

  • Matthew

    P.S. Rodiney is NOT HOT. What is wrong with you people? He looks and talks like a leper. He’s completely retarded.
    Guess I just prefer some brains with some hot body. Rather than some mindless Brazilian bisexual trash whore.
    “Oh look! Im a cliche! Im a gay guy that likes ‘hot’ foreign guys to fuck! mmmm!”

    Honestly. Makes me sad for all of you.

    P.s.s.

    When did gay guys start hating on femm gay guys? Seriously. Im noticing this everywhere.

  • ewe

    @Matthew: Not everyone is interested in wasting time watching 20 something self absorbed gay men. We already lived it ourselves. You may be right about changing the channel as i have never once watched the show myself but someone should slap you upside the head for disrespecting older gay people.

  • ewe

    @Matthew: many gay men want straight acting macho types to screw around with too. What they do not realize is those same people will be no where around when you are fighting for equality because they tend to be too frightened. Fem bashing is not a recent thing and neither is putting down older gay people like you just did.

    Previously I thought of Reichen as a fairly brave guy who came out publically and won the Amazing Race as an openly gay man, as well as encouraging his ex to come out.

    Now, I think of him as a whiny manipulative soul sucking black hole of narcisism and need who constantly plays the “Come Here, now GO AWAY” game with his boyfriends.

    Ugh, I thought that the other bitches on the show were going to be the evil ones, but at least their issues were up front. He is the worst kind of nasty evil manipulitive bitch….the kind that actually sits there with a straight face and tries to pretend that they aren’t.

  • NYC SOCIALITE

    CAM I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU!

    REICHEN APPEARS TO BE TOTALLY MANIPULATIVE AND NARCISSISTIC.
    TOTALLY SICKENING. SO DESPERATE FOR FAME OF ANY KIND.

    THE WHOLE SHOW WAS A BIG MESS! NOT IN A GOOD WAY.

    I UNDERSTAND WHAT THE PRODUCERS WERE TRYING TO DO TO GET RATINGS.
    IT WAS LIKE PUTTING A BUNCH OF ALLEY CATS TOGETHER IN A BOX AND WATCHING THEM ALL FIGHT.

    SUCH A POOR PORTRAYAL OF GAYS TODAY.

    SHAME ON LOGO TV.

    AFTER THE THE A-LIST NEW YORK. ITS GOING TO TAKE US EVEN LONGER TO EVER GET GAY MARRIAGE TO BE ACCEPTED IN NY.

    @Matthew: Child, I am 56, which gives me approximately 42 years more life experience than your typical twink. I earned every line and wrinkle, you little twat.

    As for my description of the characters, please, tell me where I once criticised anyone for being effeminate? A man with whom I was close friends until he returned to Akron, Ohio, god knows why, was one of the most effeminate men one could ever know, but he knew more about cars, their engines, and how to repair them than any butch Mary I ever met. The bravest boy I knew in high school was every effeminate stereotype you ever knew. He was also sweet, kind, and generous. I got over that prejudice long before you were around to soil your nappie.

  • Rob Moore

    P.S. Perhaps, the fact that you think it was not that bad says more about your tastes in entertainment than about the show itself.

  • Rob Moore

    @divkid: You’re quite welcome; however, if for some mysterious reason there is a 2nd season, you will be on your own since as I stated, I shall not be in the audience. I cannot afford further loss of brain cells.
