Be careful what you ask for, Andy Cohen. SNL‘s Aidy Bryant and Zachary Quinto, star of the new NBC miniseries The Slap, dropped by the Watch What Happens Live! Clubhouse and Andy, inspired by Zachary’s show, asked the openly gay actor to slap him. Big mistake.
As Aidy looked — and I like to feel, secretly cheered — on, Cohen learned first-hand why Quinto landed the role in the first place.
“That’s where this night is going, baby!” Bryant chimed in.
Later, all was forgiven (but never forgotten) when Andy asked about the much-discussed three-way in Quinto’s new movie with James Franco, I Am Michael. Quinto demurred during Cohen’s hard line of questioning, leading the host to throw some post-slap shade.
“Way to sell your movie,” Cohen half-joked. “Guess that’s one less movie I need to see!”
Because a slap between queens is never forgotten.

Les Fabian Brathwaite, slapped by Naomi and loved it.

As if being the world’s most famous gay newlyweds wasn’t enough, Lance Bass and Michael Turchin want you to watch their wedding. On television.
And we’ve got to be honest and say that we can’t wait.
The adorable couple, whose wedding extravaganza Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding will be the first-ever network special featuring same-sex nuptials, sat down with GLAAD’s Claire Pires to discuss what it what it was like growing up gay in the south, why they were afraid to invite Lisa Vanderpump to one of their dinner parties, and the importance of having put a ring on it.
“Once you’re able to say husband, it just means so much more,” Lance told GLAAD. “You feel like a whole human being … no longer a second class citizen.”
Michael agreed. “You’re just looked upon as a full person that can live a life just like anyone else, and that’s so important.”
See the full interview below.
Watch Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding tonight (and probably every night for the next six months) on E!
“Intolerance. Hatred. Bigotry. Oppression. Violation of human rights. Religious extremism. Evil,” Matt Moore, the ex-gay blogger with a Grindr profile, writes in a new op-ed published by The Christian Post. “These are words that I see used by Americans, both gay and straight, to describe the Church’s stance on sexuality.”
“But I’d like you to step back for a second and consider what is happening across the pond in a land far, far away, to people like you,” Moore writes.
The “land far, far away” he’s referring to is Mosul, Iraq. And the incident he’s alluding to happened late last month when members from the Islamic State terrorist group, also known as ISIS, released disturbing images showing a man suspected of being gay being thrown from a seven floor building, surviving the fall, then being stoned to death as he lay helpless on the ground.
“This…..” Moore writes, “this is intolerance. This is hatred. This is bigotry. This is oppression. This is violation of human rights. This is religious extremism. This is evil.”
Moore is right about one thing. It certainly is evil. Unfortunately, this is the one and only coherent point he makes in his entire blog post before descending into complete and utter madness:
“The message of the gospel, the message that saturates this blog and the words of so many people out there that you might think are being hateful toward you, is not a message of ‘adhere to our belief system or we are going to throw you off of a roof,'” Moore explains. “If that’s what we were saying, you would have every right to be disgusted with us. You would have every right to slam us. You would have every right to try to shut us down. But thankfully, that’s not what we’re saying. Not even close.”
Matt, if you’re reading, no one is afraid you’re going to throw them off a roof. And, honestly, we don’t care if you hate us or not either. Just don’t impede upon our civil rights or force your Christian fundamentalist beliefs down our throats. That’s all we’re asking.
“Disagree with us if you wish — that’s your prerogative,” Moore writes. “We’re not going to throw you off a roof for it. Step back and look at the world and re-evaluate your definitions of love and hate. What ISIS is doing is what real hatred looks like.”
Again, Matt, if you’re reading, if you want to see what real hatred looks like, take a glimpse in a mirror. And leave the innocent man who was murdered by ISIS terrorists out of this.
Boy Is A Bottom
He might have played one of TV’s most dependable (and dreamiest) big brothers on the classic sitcom The Brady Bunch, but actor Barry Williams is probably due for a session of sensitivity training after sticking his foot all the way down his throat by suggesting he’d “go transgender” to generate publicity for his new reality series.
Williams spoke on camera with Huffington Post’s Ricky Camilleri to promote A Very Barry Branson, a series for the Great American Country network which documents his efforts to stage a ’70s-themed musical revue in nostalgia-loving Branson, Missouri. The 60-year-old actor became visibly uncomfortable when asked about rumors of a bitter custody battle with an ex-girlfriend, yet Camilleri continued to push for answers.
“We don’t have time for all of that rigamarole and sorting it out. I want to find out if Bruce Jenner is going to become a woman or not,” Williams stated, to steer the conversation in another direction with what was presumably an attempt to combine humor and gossip surrounding another icon from the ’70s.
“That guy is committed. He is committed to promoting himself. And I’m thinking, maybe, I don’t know, I could say — I’m just saying, if this thing doesn’t work, and the series isn’t doing as well as I want, I’m going transgender,” Williams suggested.
To his credit, Camilleri informed the entertainer that transitioning is a “difficult emotional process.”
Still, Williams was undaunted and unapologetic. “I’m an actor, I can handle it,” he said.
For the record, despite countless articles in magazines, newspapers and other outlets that usually quote anonymous sources close to him, former Olympics champ Jenner has yet to make his own public announcement that he identifies as transgender so anything you read is purely speculation.
Also, it’s unlikely that Williams is transphobic. Many celebs, even one with the manageable fame of the erstwhile Greg Brady, tend to breathe rarefied air and can be completely oblivious to the delicate sensitivity that should greet such a personal journey as the one Jenner might be on. We’re pretty sure that Williams’ TV siblings Cindy (Susan Olsen) and Peter (Christopher Knight) would be on the right side of this discussion, though.
Watch the interview with Williams below.
Feeling the new look? Just like me, it still needs work, but this is the reason posting has been sparse, plus the whole mental health stuff, PLUS the financial stuff...Yeah, a lot of stuff has been going on. Not here for excuses, though, I'm here to say "FOLLOW A DUDE!!!" LOL!
You can find BamaBoiBlues on your fave social networks, like Facebook, Twitter, and now, Instagram! You can find these links right below my new Banner, where you'll see my semi-official icon staring you in the face, with the words "Follow Me" right beside it. How can you not follow, though?
Thank you, thank you, thank you to all those who continue to support me and my journey! I love you all very much! I still plan on doing more with this blog, and as you can see, I'm doing much much more.
Much love to you, my friends!
Me and this guy! We have been drifting back and forth towards and away from being a couple for four and a half years. In October everything fell into place. I’ve never been happier than I am now. I’m Rylan (beard), he’s Johnny (no beard), and we’re very much in love.
Madonna's Living for Love video (directed by J.A.C.K.) is s definite to return to form, a “Human Nature”-like interpretive dance piece with a bullfighting theme. She even pre-empts any animal-rights brouhaha by ending it with a Nietzche quote that agrees that people are brutes.
The video was wisely released via Snapchat, a smart way to get older people to try Snapchat and to present young Snapchatters with a top-notch Madonna video.
The anti-female feminists at Jezebel think that—regardless of the content of the video—Madonna is “desperately clinging to the youth” by using Snapchat. (Maybe because the person who wrote the piece is a guy?)
Snapchat is a mode of delivery, nothing more. Would Jezebel have been more comfortable if the video were made available via pony express?
Jesus, I can't wait to see what the sourpusses of Jezebel say when someone points out that Madonna sings about her pussy juice on Rebel Heart.
