People reported today that Octo-Mom, Nadya Suleman, has signed with the British production company Eyeworks to film a “quasi-reality” TV show. Her attorney Jeff Czech says instead of having film crews around her house all the time, they will only showcase special events, like birthdays.

Photo of Octo-Mom, Nadya Suleman, comparing her to Angelina Jolie. So, what's wrong with wanting to look like a first class movie star?
So far, only Britain has signed on to broadcast the as yet untitled program. Suleman also just inked a deal with Wendy Lee, who “ghost wrote” Life with My Sister Madonna by Christopher Ciccone, to pen her autobiography. I wish her the best, because with fourteen kids and being the victim of a lot of hateful hysteria, I’m sure Nadya needs the money. Read the whole story here.
Remember when you could watch videos on MTV and current affairs on CNN? The news thing particularly grates on me, as the last thing I need is Clark Howard telling me how to ask for bargains when all I want are the latest headlines. At least he’s not as obnoxious as his predecessor, Glen Beck, who now (appropriately) resides at Fox News, where he rants and raves against Democrats and the decline of our country to his heart’s content.

BBC News reports Prince Harry is returning to Britain having finished what they called his “first official overseas engagement.”

Harry said his trip to New York had been "fantastic."

Asked if he thought it had changed his public image, he replied: "I do not know what the public image is of me, there's always the image that has been given to me, but you know, it is the media that stamp an image on me that really isn't me." Say what? Cute, but not so articulate!

We found several more photos of him shirtless, but decline to post most of them, as the royal celebrity isn't in that good of shape, I'm sorry to say.

He really should pump some iron and do some stomach crunches.
Word on the street has Chris Brown bragging that his upcoming album, Graffiti, will be his biggest yet. Brown, who had been keeping a low profile for about three months, recently
broke his silence in a YouTube.com video, in which he declared, "I ain't a monster." Yeah. Just like Senator Larry Craig is “not gay.” If you care, here’s a link to the video.

May 30, 2009
Todd Sanfield is an up and coming star to watch out for.

There are lots of good things on the horizon for this young man.

I’m straying from my usual profiles of established actors, to report on one of the most beautiful men on the planet today.

Sizzling photo of Todd Sanfield in DNA Magazine shoot
Formerly a med student, he is currently an IMG model, having graced the covers of Tetu, DNA, and OUT Magazine. Obviously, he doesn't mind gay admirers.

He claims his mother as his biggest fan, saying she’s the one who pushed him into pursuing a modeling career.

Admitting he’s outgoing and narcissistic, he hopes to return to school and earn his medical degree.

All I have to say, is why go back to college when you can make a fortune modeling?

Rush Limbaugh’s comparison of US Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor to KKK leader David Duke is just plain ridiculous! That man is full of concentrated crap, as usual. Thank God Obama is standing by her side.

I couldn't believe it when I heard Susan Boyle lost to some dance troupe on Britain's Got Talent, but then it seems lately runnerups turn out to be the real long-term winners in these contests! Can you say Adam Lambert? Or Jennifer Hudson?
Funniest Line Ever: Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) on 30 Rock (still the funniest show on TV) to Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski): “We’re the most important people here, right?” to which Jenna replied, “Of course. We’re actors! If we didn’t exist, how would people know who to vote for?”

Another Funniest Line Ever, same show: Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) to nellie guy at reunion: I only said you were gay in high school to make it easier for you to come out,” to which the guy retorted, “Come out to what? This here is my wife and I’ll have you know we’ve raised three beautiful dogs together. I’m so mad, I’ll have to dance it off!”
Rod 2.0 reports that radical Iraqi Shiite Cleric Moqtada Sadr has softened his hate rhetoric slightly. He now says people should still revile gays and the "depravity" of homosexuality but not kill them. Read the whole article here.

The first of the last three episodes of the long-dead Pushing Daisies airs tonight on ABC. Though the show was a bit preposterous, it did showcase the talents of gay faves Swoosie Kurtz and Kristin Chenoweth. No word if there are any remaining installments of ABC’s other cancelled shows, Dirty Sexy Money and Eli Stone hiding in limbo.

Kathy Griffin will start the new season of her over-the-top-gay My Life on the D List 5 on Bravo Monday June 8, 2009 10 E/P with living legend Bette Midler guesting. Here’s the official blurb of the “PLACE YOUR BETTE” episode: “Season five begins with Kathy wondering if this is the year she gets off the D-List. After all, she is a two-time Emmy winner now. But a Grammy nod for her new comedy album may just be the catalyst Kathy needs to finally get her on the A-List. So Kathy, her assistant Tiffany and her tour manager Tom drop by the Grammy headquarters to see if she might be able to bribe the Grammy people into giving her the award.

Later Kathy heads to Vegas to rub A-List elbows with the divine Miss M – that would be Bette Midler. Bette makes Kathy an offer she can’t refuse -- a cameo in her lavish stage show at Caesar’s Palace! Against the clock, Kathy has to quickly learn the choreography, improvise a costume and come up with a hilarious zinger for her part in the show.” Don’t miss it if you can! Oh, well, don’t worry. You can see it in reruns over and over again!

Jonathon Waud showing off his assets in underwear for Make Me a Supermodel shoot photo

May 29, 2009
Make Me a Supermodel on Bravo is shocking even to me! So much nudity! This show has some pretty hot stuff going on, especially with 26 year-old contestant Jonathon Waud. With a name like that, how could you go wrong?

Born in England, but having lived in LA for three years now, he just made it to the Final Three!

All the contenders have their own blogs, plus there are photos to die for, and a lot of other fun stuff.

Funniest Line Ever, from Jimmy Fallon Wednesday evening: “Rush Limbaugh called Sonia Sotomayor a reverse racist. Well, I think Limbaugh’s a reverse genius!”

American Idol winner Kris Allen was a guest on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show the same night and did a killer version of “Heartless.” He also defended his former “roommate,” Adam Lambert, when Jimmy said he thought Adam lost because of the Geyeliner. “What if I were wearing it?” Kris asked. Flustered, Jimmy said he guessed it would be okay. Kris is so cute. The more we get to know him, the more he grows on us.

American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi and runnerup Adam Lambert

Speaking of American Idol, judge Kara DioGuardi, was asked by Barbara Walters on The View today if questions about Adam being gay cost him the crown. "I hope not," DioGuardi answered. "Because we should be judging on talent and viability in the music industry, and they both had that. (Anyway,) I don't think that Adam was ever in the closet. I think he was always openly out. I mean, from what I've seen... I never thought he wasn't."

In an earlier interview with PEOPLE.com, Lambert said people who worried about whether he preferred men or women romantically needed to "calm down," and that the most important thing was that he was being true to himself. "You should own who you are and what you're about, and never make apologies for it," he said.

American Idol runnerup Adam Lambert in high school and now photos

BREAKING NEWS: The New York Post reported today, “Adam Lambert is not only openly gay, he is planning to be on next week’s Rolling Stone cover to confirm it after months of speculation.” No further information was available at posting time.

A courageous Russian lesbian couple, Irina Fedotova, and Irina Shipitko have been denied a marriage license in what they describe as the country's first attempt by two women to marry. The move was particularly gutsy in light of ongoing violence against Russia’s GLBT population and its tolerance by government officials on the local as well as federal level.

Brave Moscow Couple Irina Fedotova and Irina Shipitko denied a Russian marriage license 5-12-09

A flustered official quickly denied their application May 12, 2009, a move that gay rights activists say symbolizes Russian officials’ refusal to recognize the civil rights of the country's gay community. Registry office director Svetlana Potamoshneva handed the couple a written rejection saying Russian law only recognizes marriages between men and women.

The lesbians said they would not give up. "We won't stop in midstream," Fedotova told journalists later, saying she and her partner will marry in Canada, because “Russia recognizes marriages registered abroad,” thus allowing the couple to formalize their relationship. Read the whole story

Bare-chested Blair Underwood in fencing gear photo

May 28, 2009
No man is better looking than actor Blair Underwood, fully clothed or bare-chested. Whether playing Christine’s love interest on The New Adventures of Old Christine, millionaire Simon Elder in Dirty Sexy Money, or troubled Alex in HBO’s In Treatment, he always causes the hearts of straight women and gay men to start racing.

Blair Underwood in a pensive mood (top) photo and at the 41st Emmy Awards (bottom) photo
Here’s a link to his official website, although it’s a bit out of date. A more recent and thorough bio can be found on Wikipedia.

Jay Leno on the Tonight show: “Playboy is for sale. They’re asking $300 million. It comes complete with three blondes who pretend they love you.”

Speaking of Jay Leno, lesbian icon Wanda Sykes made an appearance on the Tonight show yesterdat. Hilarious, as usual, she made jokes about the twins her wife recently gave birth to, with special emphasis on all the work they entail. “I told Alex, if you ever catch me in bed with another woman, you know I’m just there for a nap, catching some shuteye.”

Another funny “lady,” Australia’s premier drag queen, Dame Edna, a.k.a. Barry Humphries, showed up on the Tonight show as well, to publicize her gig, “Dame Edna’s First Last Tour,” at the Ahmanson Theatre in LA June 9-21, 2009, plus a few other times and places. Find the complete schedule on her official website.

Photo of Dame Edna on stage at the Booth Theater

“The widely-loved international homemaker, talk show host, gigastar, fashion icon, swami and most sought-after friend to the rich, famous and royal, is making a return to the theater. For more than four decades, Dame Edna has dazzled audiences the world over with her one-of-a-kind banter, infinite wisdom and fabulous beauty tips. Treat yourself to an evening with the most popular and gifted woman on the globe today!” Those are her words! She warns this may be her last appearance, as she’s older than God. The comedian had a lot of funny lines last night, including this one: “The Queen of England has a wonderful sense of humor, although it doesn’t come across on the coins.”
Lady Gaga on the Ellen Degeneres Show photo

Super pop star Lady Gaga appeared on the Ellen show May 12, 2009. After performing her new hit “Poker Face,” she told Ellen, “It means more to me to be on this show than anywhere. I look up to you so much. You’re just such an inspiration for women and for the gay community.” Ellen responded with, “I already liked you. Now I like you even more!” Buy her latest album, The Fame, for $9.99, here. Also, check out the superstar singer’s official website. Watch an encore performance of "Poker Face" on Ellens official website.

Although gay money maven Suze Orman launched her new book, Suze Orman's 2009 Action Plan, in January on Oprah, you’ll still find a free chapter excerpt on Oprah’s website. It’s filled with great tips, mostly common sense, which is something a lot of Americans seem to have lost lately. You can by the book here on Amazon.com for only $9.99.

Orman has been called "a force in the world of personal finance" and a "one-woman financial advice powerhouse" by USA Today and was named one of the Time 100, the most influential people in the world, by Time magazine in 2008.

A two-time Emmy-winning television host, New York Times mega best-selling author, magazine and online columnist, writer/producer and one of the top motivational speakers in the world today, Suze is undeniably America's most recognized expert on personal finance.

On October 9, 2008, Orman received the HRC (Human Rights Campaign) National Equality Award. She has been fighting for GLBT equality throughout her career, as far back as 1980 when she got Merrill Lynch to change their awards invitations from "spouse" to "significant other." Most recently, she was instrumental in prompting the FDIC to change its insurance policies so that all individuals are treated equally. In her award acceptance speech, Suze said that until all relationships are treated equally at the federal level, "we have nothing." She also received a standing ovation when she declared, "I don’t want to be a lesbian who is tolerated."

Life partners Kathy K.T. Travis and Suze Orman HRC photo

After accepting the award, she brought out the "most vital person in (her) life," partner, Kathy "K.T." Travis, about whom she said, “We're going on seven years. We’d like to get married and it's killing me that upon my death, Kathy is going to lose 50 percent of everything I have to estate taxes. Or vice versa." Orman and Travis have rarely made public appearances together. Check out Suze’s two TV programs: CNBC’s The Suze Orman Show and Suze Orman's Financial Freedom on QVC.

Madonna and Jesus Luz in nude photo shoot for W Magazine. Oh, to have been a fly on the wall!

May 27, 2009
50 year-old Madonna and Brazilian model boy-toy Jesus Luz, 22, who loves to pose naked, are rumored to be getting “married,” despite the 28 year gap in their ages.

Jesus Luz accompanied Madonna to the 2009 Academy Awards photo

The Brazilian model's father, Luis Heitor Pinto da Luz, told Brazil's Quem magazine on May 12, 2009, that the couple are planning a Kabbalah ceremony to have their union recognized by the mystical Jewish faith. However, it won’t be legally binding.

Another photo of clothed Madonna and nude Jesus Luz from W Magazine

Jesus has denied that marriage of any kind is eminent, saying he and Madonna are just friends, even though he’s shacked up with her in her Central Park West apartment.

He gets my gaydar revved up (as well as a few other things) and we all know Madonna loves her gay guys! Personally, I think it’s all a publicity stunt to get his career jump-started. More power to them, I say! I couldn't find a fan club for Jesus, but here's a link to Madonna's official website: http://www.madonna.com/

Grieving Gays clog San Francisco intersection to protest Supreme Court Gay Marriage ruling photo

Mercury News.com reported San Francisco police arrested 175 protesters who blocked the intersection of Van Ness and Grove for several hours yesterday in reaction to California Supreme Court's ruling that confirmed Proposition 8’s legality, the voter-approved ban on gay marriage. More rallies were planned for later in the evening. Read the whole story here.

Maybe federal involvement is what’s needed. The Associated Press reports “Two of the nation's top litigators who opposed each other in the Bush v. Gore election challenge in 2000 have joined forces in Los Angeles to seek federal court intervention in California's gay marriage controversy. Theodore B. Olson and David Boies have filed a U.S. District Court lawsuit on behalf of two gay men and two gay women, arguing that the California constitutional amendment eliminating the right of gay couples to marry violates the U.S. constitutional guarantee of equal protection and due process. Olson said yesterday he hopes the case will wind up before the U.S. Supreme Court. The lawsuit also seeks a preliminary injunction against California's Proposition 8 until the case is resolved.” All I have to say, is what took them so long? Here’s a more detailed story about it by CNN.
The View hosts Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters, Sherri Shepherd photo

I take back what I said yesterday about Elisabeth Hasselbeck supporting President Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court. Apparently, she’s had a change of heart. Today, on The View, she said she’s worried Sonia Sotomayor will make decisions based simply on “empathy and emotion.” Excuse me, Elisabeth, but that sounds like a sexist thing to say. How old-school Republican of you!

After their cola was banned from Germany and several other European countries, Red Bull admitted today that it uses coca leaves as flavoring for its popular energy drink. A press release, stated its cola is "harmless and marketable in both the U.S. and Europe and similar coca leaf extracts are used worldwide as flavoring.” They said a test it commissioned itself found no cocaine traces. What? Now that it’s probably too late to buy it, they divulge they’ve been spiking the stuff, but not really? Huh?

California Supeme Court Justices Joyce Kennard, Ronald George, Marvin Baxter, Ming Chin photo

May 26, 2009
The California Supreme Court blew it today by allowing the majority to dictate the civil rights of a minority. I predict riots in the streets over this travesty. The only good thing was the justices’ unanimous decision to allow the state’s 18,000 gay marriages already performed to remain on the books.

Photo of two guys outside San Francisco court where the notorious anti-gay decision was delivered today

Justice Carlos Moreno wrote the sole dissenting opinion, saying denying same-sex couples the right to wed "strikes at the core of the promise of equality that underlies our California Constitution. It represents a drastic and far-reaching change. Promising equal treatment to some is fundamentally different from promising equal treatment for all." Read more about Moreno’s opinion on the always informative Rod 2.0 website.

California gays are planning to take the issue back to the ballot box next year, so all is not lost. Recent polls show public opinion has been slowly changing on this subject.

Here’s are links to an Associated Press article and a New York Times story on this verdict. I’m so disappointed I can barely write this blog—but life must go on.

Congratulations to President Barack Obama for choosing
Sonia Sotomayor, 54, as the first Hispanic nominee to serve on the United States Supreme Court. He praised her as "an inspiring woman with both the intellect and compassion to interpret the Constitution wisely.” He always seems to know the right thing to do! Even conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View lauded his choice. Here’s a link to a New York Times’ profile of the revered judge.

The new Star Trek movie is not only garnering great box office, it is making superstars out of Zachary Quinto (left) and Chris Pine (right). Although sultry Quinto is already well-known for the TV show Heroes, I remember him from when he "played" Tori Spelling’s gay best friend on her MTV show, So noTORIous, a short-lived but hilarious reality comedy series.

. . Good-looking Pine starred in the 2004 The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement and a 2006 TV film Surrender Dorothy. Here's a link to a Zachary Quinto bio and one to Chris Pine or simply click on their shirtless, bare chested photos.
