    "Doing the Dirty Work"

    Gay Porn Star Serves Conservatives


    What’s creepier, the fact that there are a bunch of high-powered conservative men camped out in the woods in California, possibly making offerings to a giant owl statue, or that one of the men waiting on them is a former porn star who happens to be gay? The two-week retreat at Bohemian Grove, an all-male gathering in Monte Rio, Calif., has attracted such guests as GEORGE H.W. BUSH, DICK CHENEY, NEWT GINGRICH, COLIN POWELL and every Republican president since CALVIN COOLIDGE, whose presidency ended in 1929.

    Never one to mince words, former President RICHARD NIXON described the faux-Druid rituals common at the camp as “the most faggy goddamned thing you could ever imagine.”

    That was until former gay porn star CHAD SAVAGE, star of “How the West Was Hung” and eight other movies, became one of the Grove’s valets.

    The New York Post’s Page Six reports that the former porn star is waiting on the conservatives gathered at the retreat this year, bringing them food, making their beds and catering to every whim.

    Sam Singer, a spokesperson for the Grove, said Savage needn’t worry about losing his job.

    “All that matters is that the valets do good service,” he told the Post.

    Savage hasn’t been “servicing” anyone in the porn industry since 2002.

    Homo For The Holidays

    Here! TV, which you may know as ‘the nation’s first gay and lesbian premium cable network,” recently started production on what they describe as “the FIRST EVER gay-themed family holiday special.” This is not true! My friend and fellow gay television pioneer Douglas Lee Long had at least one fabulous “holiday special” of is public access series The Fresca Vinyl Show. But I digress.

    Hear, hear for here! I’m proud of the network and what they’re accomplishing. Too Cool For Christmas, now in production, stars George Hamilton (Love at First Bite, The Godfather: Part III), Donna Mills (Knot’s Landing), Brooke Nevin (The 4400), Adam Harrington (Queer As Folk) and Barclay Hope. In what they call “a ground-breaking move,” here! TV is also filming a second version of the movie called A Very Cool Christmas with a straight-themed storyline. The gay version hits the U.S. premium network and the straight version is set for international distribution.

    According to my sources, Too Cool For Christmas is the story of a fashion-conscious teen (Nevin) who would rather spend the holidays with her boyfriend than with her two dads (Harrington and Hope). While at the mall, Brooke encounters the local Santa (Hamilton) who imparts to her the meaning of family, generosity and the true spirit of Christmas.”

    “Never before has there been a gay family-themed holiday special,” states Paul Colichman, president of here! TV. “This film marks yet another attempt in our mission to take mainstream genres that have traditionally lacked a gay presence and to fill in the gaps with entertaining and innovative programming.”

    “When I first read Michael Gelbart’s script, the parents were straight. We asked him if he could adapt a second story in which the parents are two dads. We thought it would be terrific to shoot both versions of the film to reach the widest possible audience,” added Colichman.

    So, I guess they’ll experience here over there! Ho, Ho, Homo and a Happy New Queer! For more information, visit
    here TV.

    That’s a wrap.

    Will & Grace, Buffy Beat Obscenity Charges

    Will & Grace, Buffy Beat Obscenity Charges
    (Washington) An investigation, prompted by complaints to the Federal Communications Commission that scenes from Will & Grace and Buffy the Vampire Slayer were obscene, has found neither series violated standards of decency.

    The complaints were brought by the conservative Parents Television Council, based in Phoenix.

    The group argued that in the Will & Grace episode that aired last year Grace (Debra Messing) kissed a female photographer (Glenn Close) followed by Close's character rubbing against Messing in a sexually suggestive manner.

    In the "Buffy," episode, on the now defunct series, the PTC complained about a scene that had Spike (James Marsters) and Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) having what appeared to be sex against a wall.

    The FCC, in the midst of a decency campaign, ordered NBC and UPN to submit tapes of the shows.

    In a ruling this week the commissioners said that there was no intent to "pander, titillate or shock." The ruling went on to say that "there is no evidence that the activity depicted was dwelled upon."

    Had the networks been found guilty they could each have been fined up to a maximum of $27,000. As the FCC moves to "clean up" television in the wake of Janet Jackson's breast being revealed during the Super Bowl half time show fines are going up. Congress has approved legislation to increase them but it has not yet become law.

    The Buffy and Will & Grace ruling is not sitting well with the PTC. Spokesperson Lara Mahaney said she is concerned about the episodes now playing in syndication are running during the so-called family hour of 7 p.m. in many markets.

    "Eight o'clock is when the largest number of children is watching television," said Mahaney. "Between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., knock yourself out. This was graphic sex and we think there are compelling reasons why children shouldn't see that kind of graphic sex."

    Cynthia Nixon Has Girlfriend
    [​IMG]

    (From People Mag)
    Talk about Sex and the City: Cynthia Nixon's love life got major play in New York's tabloids Friday morning, with screaming front-page headlines about her current "romance with a woman," as the Daily News declared.

    Both the Daily News and New York Post reported that Nixon has been dating an unnamed girlfriend following her June 2003 split with Danny Mozes, the father of her two children.

    (From CNN Online)
    http://www.cnn.com/2004/SHOWBIZ/09/24/showbuzz/

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Perhaps in a sign that nobody -- or at least some of the New York media -- has anything else to do, both the New York Daily News and the New York Post trumpeted the news that Cynthia Nixon is in a relationship with another woman.

    A source who works with Nixon told The Associated Press the same thing on Friday.

    "We will not confirm or deny anything," Nixon's publicist, Carrie Ross, told AP about the rumors.

    Nixon just won an Emmy for her role as Miranda Hobbes in the hit HBO comedy "Sex and the City."

    "My private life is private," Nixon told the Daily News. "But at the same time, I have nothing to hide. So what I will say is that I am very happy."

    The actress split in June 2003 with photographer and high school sweetheart Danny Mozes, whom she'd been with for 15 years (but never married). They now share custody of their two children.

    If "Sex and the City" were to be believed, the revelation would have been more expected from Kim Cattrall's character, Samantha, whose many, many TV conquests included one woman.

    Nixon's lawyer character was the cool professional of the bunch, although her boss mistook her for a lesbian in the first season and set her up with a woman, resulting in a single kiss. But Miranda never dallied further and ended up married to her bartender boyfriend.

    After two previous nominations, Nixon, 38, won an Emmy this year for her performance on the HBO show. She is working on "Tanner on Tanner," a Robert Altman and Gary Trudeau miniseries for the Sundance Channel.

    You'd think that these dumbasses would just pay attention to what thier children watch instead of suing everyone. I guess suing is easier then pushing the off button?

    They lost, :rofl:

    Matt LeBlanc denies gay rumors

    [font=verdana,helvetica,arial]Matt LeBlanc Denies Gay Rumors[/font]

    [font=verdana,helvetica,arial]October 8, 2004[/font]
    [font=verdana,helvetica,arial][​IMG]

    He may be riding high with his new TV show "Joey," but in private Matt LeBlanc is being faced with rumors about his sexuality.

    The "Friends" star is being hit by claims from a former chauffeur driver, who accuses the married actor of not only sleeping with men but also using him to recruit them for sex in the back of his limousine.

    Damian Plumleigh has sat through an interview with The National Enquirer, as well as a lie detector test to bolster his claims, but he has been dismissed by the actor.

    "I have never asked to be set up with gay hustlers," FemaleFirst reports the star as saying.

    "It's absolutely not true. I am not bisexual. I am not gay. I have never had sex with men."

    He said it was important for him to make his point in public, so as to ensure these rumors do not continue to circulate.

    "Setting the record straight is not only important because of me and my life, but also because of my family," he said.

    LeBlanc is not the only star to face recent rumors about his sexuality and react angrily.

    Former pop singer Jason Donovan incurred the wrath of the gay community when he took The Face to court for implying he was gay, while Robbie Williams is apparently planning legal action against a recent kiss-and-tell story from a gay man.

    Some stars have been rewarded for their positive reaction to such gossip, however. Australian swimmer Ian Thorpe faced up to rumors about his sexuality by saying he was flattered to be thought of as gay, but is happily heterosexual.

    "They respect and admire what I do, and I think it is a very big compliment," he said of the support he received from gay sports fans. The Olympic medal winner is now considered a gay icon.

    [​IMG]"Rent"

    If you've been feeling a little nostalgic for the '90s lately -- and who hasn't, really? -- then your retro yearning is about to be satisfied.

    After a few false starts, the film version of that decade's hit Broadway musical, "Rent," will finally be going before the cameras. "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" director Chris Columbus has taken the reins, and the movie is in the casting stage.

    The coolest development of all, however, is that the original cast members have been approached to take on the roles they created when the show was in its off-Broadway days. Taye Diggs ("Kevin Hill," "Chicago") and out gay actor Anthony Rapp are in talks to reprise their characters, as are fellow cast members Idina Menzel ("Wicked"), Jesse L. Martin and Adam Pascal. No word on production schedules yet, so be ready to wait a little longer than 525,600 minutes for it to arrive at a theater near you.

    It’s a sad day for music fans everywhere. I’m sorry to report that Paris Hilton has decided to give up her music career. She was devastated by the reaction to her first song “Screwed”... I'm sure she didn't like her cartoon debut on Southpark either :mamoru: . And it probably didn’t help that she was pelted with things and run off stage in Miami when she tried to perform. She says everybody thinks she’s just (at worst) another 'Stupid Spoiled Whore' or (at best) another actress trying to be a singer.... Oh come on now, who really thinks she’s an actress :)o wait, do the sex tapes count...?).


    [​IMG]

    And have you heard what she's giving herself for Christmas?? It’s a tiger cub! Oh yeah, this is a great idea...:rolleyes: She wants to name it “Tiggie” and take it everywhere, like she did with Tinkerbell. I feel so sorry for Tinkerbell-- who may not be around long when Tiggie starts getting playful :noes:. Does Paris not know that they don’t stay cubs for long? I’m guessing she’ll give it up right around the time it starts marking its territory, as they cannot be housebroken.

    -EDIT-
    And speaking of the 'Stupid Spoiled Whore' who 'sings' “Screwed”, the Star is reporting that Paris Hilton recently crashed a Hollywood producer's bash to try to schmooze a future role--nothing new there. But this time, she discovered she was already the star attraction. Hilton found party guests gathered around a big-screen TV watching her XXX-rated One Night in Paris sex video!!! :mamoru: It gets worse…they were all slamming her performance! Needless to say, she came...and soon left. :o

    It’s usually a problem when a TV show starts “stunting” with exotic location shoots and guest stars. Lucy Liu is set to make a rare TV show appearance - in Joey. The Ally McBeal actress will guest star on at least two upcoming episodes, reuniting her with Charlie's Angels love interest Matt LeBlanc. Liu will play a tough-talking TV executive producer for the night-time soap Joey is on.

    Pamela Anderson took the walk of shame the other day…and The NY Post was there! She spent the night at Stephen Dorff's home - fuelling speculation the couple are secretly dating. She was spotted leaving his apartment wearing the same clothes she wore the day before, according to Pagesix. Their reporter saw Pam stroll out of Stephen's house at around 10:30am, her hair was a bird's nest and it was obvious she had just gotten out of bed.

    There was no information on exactly how sensitive her nipples were. :o

    Power couple Naomi Campbell and Usher were recently shocked when they accepted an invitation to Campbell's ex-boyfriends restaurant in France 2 weeks ago. They both assumed that the meal would be compedyou know, because they are both rich and therefore shouldn't spend their own money. Well, can you imagine the hissy fit the diva (Naomi, not Usher) had when they were presented with a bill that was over $3,000 :eek3:. After making one of those scenes that she is known for, Campbell's ex did indeed comp the bill. Sucks for the waiter though; :sadwavey: to your tip...

    And it looks like Naomi Campbell's diva behavior is rubbing off on her new beau, Usher. When the R&B star arrived at the GQ Men of the Year awards party last week at Lucques in L.A., he "insisted everyone and their mother clear the red carpet or he would refuse to walk it," said a gossip spy. The carpet was cleared, and Dustin Hoffman had to enter the awards dinner through the restaurant's back door!!!

    You remember a few weeks ago, when Tara Reid's mammary escaped in front of the paparazzi? We’ll, this time it happened to teen queen Lindsay Lohan. Lindsay was dancing at Club Marquee in NYC when one of her breasts popped out. Lindsay played it cool and just tucked the offending breast back in, making the maneuver look like some hip new dance move. Curiously, the 18-year-old actress seemed to prefer to do her drinking not in the bar, but the ladies' room. A gossip spy says friends handed her an iced drink before she returned to get her groove on outside. This was also fueling the rumors that she was sniffing a lot while in the loo. Hmmm... :x: Still waiting for pics to pop-up on OT like her Thanksgiving shots where she’s chilling with a bunch of friends, smoking blunts.

    Oh, and speaking of the new Britney, it looks like Michael Jackson isn’t the only celeb who bleaches his skin… Lindsay hates her freckles so much, she uses very expensive vanishing cream to try to bleach them away. According to “In Touch” Magazine, Lindsay applies the special prescription cream every night at the cost of $100 a jar.

    I bet she wishes she could bleach away other flaws... It was just a matter of time, but Lohan has been accused of lip-syncing during her supposedly live performance on Good Morning America last Monday. Reportedly, phone lines at GMA lit up like a menorah with viewers calling to complain she'd mimed the words and blatantly missed her cues. One said she did "a bad job of lip-syncing her way through two mind-numbingly generic Britney Spears/Ashlee cast-offs", adding, "She looked like she hadn't even bothered to learn the songs". Ouch. But representatives for Lohan insist she sung every word of the tunes "Rumors" and "Over" with the aid of a "backing track". Oh, the backing track... I wonder if Ashlee gave her the idea, because it worked so well on Saturday Night Live.

    There’s new evidence of frostiness between "Newlyweds" stars Nick Lachey and his wife, Jessica Simpson. Despite a cover story in Us Weekly in which Simpson insists she and Lachey are "blissfully in love," witnesses who saw the couple at the Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony say they arrived and left in separate cars. Oops, and it looks like they didn't speak to each other except when they were on camera.

    To cap it all, Lachey then sounded off about Simpson in front of a production assistant and her boss. The aide then wrote up a detailed account of the exchange that somehow found its way onto the media gossip Web site Gawker.com. The online posting reads (in part): "My boss and I were talking to Nick about extending his intro for Jessica by 30 secs. We asked him what he wanted to say about her. .... These are [Nick's] exact words, 'Let's see, what could I say... Do you really want me to tell you? Not too many nice things to say about her. How about she was the best stocking I ever stuffed? She was the best chimney I've ever come down on?' " The anonymous tipster continued, "What scared me about those comments, besides the obvious, is that he was dead serious."

    Another producer working on the show responded, "Nick was just saying really mean, mean stuff about her." Meanwhile, the company which hired the assistants said someone’s out of a job today... Damn. Do confidentiality agreements mean nothing today??

    Ashanti has long scoffed at rumors of romance between her and Nelly. She told Vibe Magazine it's "just people making up their own sitcom." If so, it seems that they keep generating new episodes! Ashanti is shooting her film debut “Coach Carter” with Samuel L. Jackson. Apparently he was unaware of their desire to keep it on the down low... He said in an interview, “Nelly would bring her organic vegetarian meals all the time because she didn't like the commissary food. Let's just say, I ate generic because Nelly wasn't bringing food to ME every day.” Stage hands on the set also say the pair talked endlessly by phone when Nelly was taping Tim McGraw's recent TV special. So why all the sneakin' around? Speculation is that it's because Ashanti has also been juggling Irv Gotti, who signed her to his label, The Inc. For now, her rep insists, "She's friends with Nelly. She has a professional working relationship with Irv Gotti. That's it."

    Sure... :wavey: GET IT GURL!!!!

    Well, if Oprah Winfrey and Rosie O’Donnell can take their talk show success and use it to start magazines, then Ellen DeGeneres can do it too! In 2005 Ellen will have her own magazine called “One in Ten.” Clearly, it’s a play on the estimate that 10% of the population is gay or lesbian, and yes, the mag will target gays and lesbians.

    But, she says that unlike Oprah, she won't be featured on the cover every month. She knows that although we like her, we wanna see hot people.
