And so begins the publicity cycle for a new show about supposedly fabulous white people with means: LOGO’s The A-List: New York premieres in October and it’s time to brush up on who you’re going to hate the most! Will it be Reichen Lehmkuhl, the 36-year-old pilot reality star-cum-model? Or maybe (his boyfriend) Rodiney Santiago, the 28-year-old Miami model searching for NYC representation? So many similar candidates, so little time!
As has become standard fare in the world Real Housewives created, the show will attempt to convince viewers these six men — which include recovering drug addict fashionista Austin Armacost, 22; married daddy hopeful Ryan Nickulas, 30; single man about town Derek Lloyd Saathoff, 27; and juicehead photographer Mike Ruiz, 44 — lead the glamorous lives New Yorkers are supposed to. Particularly the homosexual ones.
All that remains to be seen, then, is which one of these men is going to trick himself into thinking he can have a singing career.
