SELF LOVE

WATCH: The Jeffery Self Juggernaut Hits Wisteria Lane, Oprah Winfrey Network


It’s never a dull moment in the world of actor-comedian Jeffery Self, is it? Besides co-starring in Jeffery and Cole Casserole on Logo, we’ve caught him calling Bernadette Peters, acting in a virtual gay charm school and explaining “Sh*t Gay Guys Say.”

A busy bee, that JS!

Self has popped up in the gay zeitgeist yet again, this time, in what may be the most ideal platform to date: a pilot for the Oprah Winfrey Network.

Couldn’t you just die?

For now, Thank Goodness OWN Friday is just a test run, but it’s got moxie, by gum. The premise is plain enough: Jeffery and his too-cute-for-words boyf Patrick McDonald sit around gabbing about OWN programming (leaving their shirts unbuttoned just a tad further than most people have the nerve for).

Of course, it’s the witty banter and adorable chemistry that makes it worth a watch. OWN wants feedback, so give it a gander and then let loose.

And lest you think that his media empire is confined to gay ghettos, Self—who’s already popped up on 30 Rock and Hot in Cleveland—just made an appearance on Desperate Housewives. He pops up at around 26:40, swathed in a scarf and various wrist bangles.

Self’s character is—how to put this without sounding judgmental—rather effete, if you will.

We love our queeny boys just as much as we love our burly men. It’s just that if this character was any lighter in the loafers, he’d be selling you Mio.
