Me Likey: Andy Cohen

August 8, 2009

cohen_6-24So the first I laid eyes on this gorgeous specimen known as Andy Cohen was on an after-show special for Bravo’s Flipping Out.   I was smitten right away.  Not only did I find him sexy, smart, and funny but I thought I recognized a bit of camp there too.  I thought to myself: self, he isn’t gay, is he?  Have the gay gods aligned! Have I found my Jewish prince?  Will I have to convert?

He and Jeff Lewis (star of Flipping Out) just seemed like old girlfriends to me but I didn’t want to speculate.  I wanted to hear it from the horse’s mouth — notably, say post coitus, as we lay romantically intertwined in our ridiculously high thread-count sheets.  Sorry, total tangent there!!! Anyhoo, of course, it wouldn’t be until an after-show for The Real Housewives of New Jersey that I would get confirmation that Cohen is in fact gay!  All I have to write is ME LIKEY, ME LIKEY A LOT!  

Cohen has a 30 minute late-night talk show out on Bravo called Watch What Happens Live and even his celebrity guests seem smitten with him. This week a gentleman caller on the show said what I have been wanting to say to Cohen for quite sometime: I want to have your Jewish babies!  Well, I don’t know if I would have said it quite like that but that’s the gist of it!   

True, he seems to be getting campier each episode but I see him more pushing an agenda to change America’s fusty notion of what gay is.  You can be camp and masculine, yes.  Wendy Williams does it everyday!  LOVE YOU, Wendy!  

No, but I think Cohen is a great addition to the late night festivities… and I am not just writing that because he’s my future Baby Daddy either!!!

Gratuitous: Lace Wigs

Lace_Front_Wig.160190638_stdYet another installment… 

Tyra does it, Beyonce does it, Wendy Williams does it, so why not you?  Because your ass is not on TV!!!  I am so tired of seeing ordinary women on the street sporting lace wigs.  Yes, if you have a condition that causes hair loss, then wigs seem a plausible thing, but if you are an un-afflicted girl and want an alternative to a weave, then just keep your hair short!

Regardless of what people may say about the natural hairline this wig supposedly gives, it seems only so under bright camera lights because I can see these frauds a mile away on average-Jane walking the streets.

Actually some of the hairlines on these wigs are downright alien-esque!  At least get it done by a professional!

Magic Dragon pt. 2

January 25, 2009

dragon3So this recent movie that came out chronicling the life and times of one of Brooklyn’s most prolific rappers had me thinking not about my love and admiration for my hometown boy (yeah, I got love for him; I am so gangsta, like totally) but got me thinking about my gays and the hip-hop industry.

For years, there has been gossip, exposés  planned, articles written and even a book or two penned discussing the clandestine gay happenings in the misogynistic — and many times openly homophobic — world of hip-hop.

I think it would be silly of us all to think there aren’t well-known hip-hop artists and/or executives who are in fact gay.  I have known for years now that there are said gays who exist.

So let’s call said gay Magic Dragon.  MD is a major major force to be reckoned with and his influence hasn’t just been that of hip-hop glory so he has a mass appeal that’s undeniable.  Trust me, even if you do not follow this type of music, you know him!

I know MD through varying degrees of separation throughout the years. Actually, he is one person in the industry I could never seem to get away from no matter what new project or  job I take.  One or more of those degrees we share make him gayer than a Capri cigarette hanging from a burly set of lips.

So story goes that back in the day he use to be really adamant about not just promoting his up-and-coming artists but promoting what he would dub “male bonding sessions” with certain artists on the roster and members of his recording team and record label.  See “bonding” for MD wasn’t your normal fare of going to a bar, a sportsman-ly game of basketball, or something uninteresting like that.  In fact, he was into what my gays would call circle jerks.  Nope it ain’t a circle of really influential soda jerks either (can soda jerks even be influential?)  CJs are where a group of men get together and squeeze the cannoli, if you know what I mean.  I won’t get anymore graphic because I am a lady… I mean a gentleman.  MD wouldn’t be silly and just ask anyone to join these parties but one or two of the people he did ask weren’t too happy about it and let it spill.

This brings me to yet again to the fact that Wendy Williams isn’t as dumb as she looks.  I am not sure if she ever mentioned MD was gay but I know she doesn’t like him too many and says she has hardcore evidence that one of MD’s former protégés was.  And she would be right as MD and he both use to be the ringleaders and organizers of these circle jerks of fire.  (Wendy, girl, we need to compare notes.  I have been holding a lot of this stuff in for years.)

MD will probably profess to everyone around him that he is secure with his manhood.  And to the untrained eye he is.  He is a “straight man” with beautiful women always in his sights, even public records of infidelity that make him a lady’s man to the media and you, yet all around him are his gays from his fashion designers to his publicists to his assistants.   Actually, I know his personal stylist (who goes with him EVERYWHERE) who is gay, gay, and gayer!  Though I haven’t gotten to know him well enough to see if he could re-confirm the things I know, I get the sense that something is in the air when I converse with him anyway.

I think guys like MD are a new form of DL gay men (especially in the entertainment world) emerging: the closeted man who by all accounts lives a straight life in public but also proclaims to everyone he is so comfortable with his sexuality that he can have hoards of gay men around him.

I think I may be stalked, bruised and then battered  for this entry so I am going to stop here.  If the entries end abruptly after this point please inform the police of this particular entry  and… and… TELL MY MOM I LOVE HER!!! Hahaha…
