The A-List: Dallas Recap: “I’ve Already Been Sweated On By A 400-lb. Man”

In the penultimate episode of Logo’s The A-List: Dallas, the Levi-Chase-Taylor roundelay continues with dizzying speed. At one point, Ashley complains that she can’t keep pace with their make-ups and break-ups and passive-aggressive bitchery. We feel your pain, girl.

Side note: castmate Chase Hutchinson joined the panel for a recent installment of Logo’s hit Canadian chat show 1 Girl, 5 Gays. The full episode should be viewable on their website shortly, if it isn’t already.

Although Ashley’s behavior can be infuriating, particularly as she tends to view gay men as flouncing fashion accessories, she once again spends most of her screen time calling her friends out for their bad behavior and encouraging them to treat each other with more respect. Give the girl some credit; even Mike Ruiz on The A-List: New York, by far the most grounded and relatively sane member of that motley crew, elects to stay out of their internecine warfare and doesn’t try to mend fences.

ALD was filmed over the summer when Texas was suffering from massive wildfires. Ashley reveals she will be traveling to San Antonio for a few days to volunteer her time with Brighter Days, an animal-rescue nonprofit that needed help managing horses injured or displaced by the conflagration. For assistance, she ropes Levi, who readily agrees, as well as Phillip, Taylor and James. The latter complains in a confessional interview that Ashley considers him a “project” rather than a friend because she keeps trying to expose him to sunlight, fresh air and at least three consecutive hours of sobriety. As usual, he’s unappreciative and scornful of her efforts.

Nobody is particularly thrilled by the idea of that particular mix of personalities in close proximity shoveling horse patties. But Ashley remains chipper. Taylor the Terrible is unhappy with having to watch Chase get drunk on Levi’s intoxicating cowboy pheromones—that is, until he learns that Chase will be out of town attending a wedding. How convenient! I still believe that if ALD returns for a second season Taylor deserves his own melodramatic telenovela flourish on the soundtrack for moments just like this one. You can see the wheels turning towards deviousness in his brain. Praise Jeebus!

      Wow, what a ride! I laughed, I cried, it became a part of me. I’m talking about your fab recap, not the show. Hilarious, yet touching – pure gold.

      Yeah – well, I’ve really enjoyed this show, I hope they renew it. Damn, I’ve felt sorry for Taylor for awhile now and now those feelings are growing for Chase. I mean, HOW many times has Levi told him that he doesn’t see him as a boyfriend, 4? Maybe 20? He even told him that he wasn’t his type – twice. Levi likes twinks (Taylor) or muscled strippers – and hairless. Guess Chase didn’t get any of those memos.

      I’m making “Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker” my cell phone greeting. Poetry, baby!

      That show was offensive. MTV has really screwed their credit with our community in the eyes of a great many gay people with this trash.

      you can tell how unpopular this show is by how few comments the recaps generate each week.

      I guess this is pretty typical for A-List Dallas.
