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?
Despite gay rumors, he appears to be happily married to a woman, with whom he’s raising one child.

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.
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.
