!! OMG, Here Comes the Judge: Andre Léon Talley !!


Fashion week is just beginning here in New York, and already we’re starting to hear geat news from the land of bulimic string beans and $25k t-shirts. Well, actually it’s just Top Model news, and we all know that has nothing to do with “fashion” unless you count in-store appearances at Target, but whatever.
Tyra Banks has sent word down from her heavenly throne that Miss Jay is ceding his ANTM Judgeship to an even more flamboyant (and way more important) black man: Vogue’s Andre Léon Talley. In fashion, one week you’re in and the next week… oh, wait, that’s a different show. But still applicable!
And yay, cause Miss Jay never quite lived up to his judgey potential if you ask me. He will go back to coaching the girls on the runway, where he always seemed better off anyway. Now if only we could get Janice Dickinson back and replace Tyra with Grace Jones, maybe this would be a show worth watching again.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the fantastic Mr. Talley, above is his (too-brief!) star turn from The September Issue.

!! OMG, legendary catfight: Doreen and Maya !!


The soap opera Generations is a little before my time, but we need more shows like this on television now. Imagine how great the new Melrose Place could be if the actors committed like this!
From YouTube:

The famous catfight between Doreen Jackson (Jonelle Allen) and Maya Reubens (Vivica A. Fox) on the soap opera Generations. This clip also features Kristoff St. John as Adam Marshall.

(Thanks to veg for the tip!)

!! OMG, Turn Around and Bend Over: The gayest sitcom you forgot all about !!


Remember Small Wonder, the embarrassingly low-budge syndicated sitcom from your childhood about a girl robot named VICI?? WELL, several of my prayers have been answered, because it’s finally out on DVD! Not just that, but (the almost annoyingly brilliant) Rich of FourFour has compiled the above reel of its gayest moments.
Rich also reviews the first season over at his blog. (Guess what: it’s terrible!) But go ahead– you know you want to buy it anyway.

!! OMG, RuPaul meets LL Cool J !!


I was trawling YouTube for a clip of RuPaul on the Today Show this morning– during which he explained drag to Kathie Lee Gifford– and instead I found this gem. Which I guess is Ru on LL Cool J’s sitcom? Which I don’t even remember existed?
Watch the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race tonight on the Logo network!
