Tom Daley wasn’t the only one joining the LGBT ranks recently. Maria Bello sorta did as well. In an essay titled “Coming Out as a Modern Family,” the 46-year-old actress discusses coming out to her 12-year-old son Jackson about her best friend and partner, Clare Munn. Jackson is the result of a previous relationship with TV producer Dan McDermott. Here’s a brief excerpt from the New York Times piece.
So back to Jackson’s question, with me sitting on the edge of his bed: Was I romantic with anyone right now?
I exhaled and finally said it: “Clare.”
He looked at me for what seemed like an eternity and then broke into a huge, warm smile. “Mom, love is love, whatever you are,” he said with wisdom beyond his years. (Yes, he obviously attends one of those progressive schools in Los Angeles!)
I loved him so much for saying that. “But Jack, I’m a little scared,” I said. “When I was younger, people judged you if you were in a romantic relationship with a person of the same sex, and some still do. So I’m not sure how to deal with this. But we’ll figure it out together.”
Ellen DeGeneres must have male strippers on speed dial. It seems every time I tune in to her talk show, a new crop of shirtless studs are congratulating a guest for a recent engagement, wedding, pregnancy, birthday or some other random reason. I wouldn’t be surprised if Ellen congratulated someone for getting their period. Right?
On Monday’s episode, Allison Janney was the latest recipient of Ellen’s “generosity.” I have to say, out of all the ones I’ve seen, Allison appeared to have the most fun with it. She wasn’t at all embarrassed, and if anything, reveled in all the male eye candy. Girlfriend’s eyes were bugging out and her hands were touching the merchandise (extensively). Check out the clip below.
Chemical drain openers and sexy don’t typically go hand in hand for most people. Although, I’m sure there are some freaks out there who have a fetish for smelly clogged pipes. GROSS. You know who you are ;)
Liquid Plumr is making their 2014 calendar available to download for free. While it’s relatively subdued with regards to some of the other 2014 calendars I’ve shared, it’s still pretty sexy. The likelihood of anyone as hot as these guys showing up at your front door is virtually nil, but one can fantasize, right?
Even though the company tapped Rusty Joiner to grace the cover, along with bookending it as their January and December cover boy, I’m all about March and November’s Alejandro. Dude can plunge me anytime. Check out the pics below and see if you agree with me. If not, comment on which dude you’d want to clean your pipes.
British diver Tom Daley came out of the closet today via his YouTube page to tell the world he’s been dating a guy. I can already hear all the gay men squealing with joy over this news. We’ve definitely done our fair share of oogaling and drooling over this young stud muffin and now those fantasies have come true. In the video Tom discusses that he read an article where he was misquoted and it made him feel really angry and lists that as one of the reasons he decided to make the video.
“I’ve been dating girls and I’ve never really had a serious relationship to talk about and now I feel ready to talk about my relationships.
Come spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe, and everything just feels great. And, well, that someone is a guy. And it did take me by surprise a little bit. It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen but it wasn’t until spring this year that something just clicked…”
Tom states that he still fancies girls for now but we’ll see how that one goes. A lot of people will say “Bi now, gay later,” but I’m finding with the younger generation that it’s not so black and white anymore these days and a lot of younger people are landing more in the middle with bisexuality. In any case, I want to commend Tom for stepping out like this. We all have to remember that he’s been in the public eye since he was 16 and he’s now only 19 years old. I didn’t even come out until I was 20 and I lived in a very accepting household with no one watching so I can only imagine what it’s like for these young stars. I wish Tom all the best in his relationship and I’m glad to see he’s really happy with whoever this lucky young lad is. I’m sure we’ll soon be seeing him gracing the covers of Attitude and GT Magazine because of this news.
The Gay Man Project is the brainchild of photographer Kevin Troung. It’s an ambitious attempt to catalog the stories of gay men around the world. Spanning from Brazil to Vietnam and numerous locations in between, Troung photographs and interviews self-identified homosexuals in their own environment.
I’ve checked out a few of the featured subjects, and absolutely love the project. Reading the experiences of the diverse group of individuals, along with the accompanying intimate portraits was truly fascinating. If you want to get involved with the project, head over to the official website for more info. Check out a video below.
“This project is simple. Basically I’m trying to photograph as many gay men as I can. My goal is to create a platform, a visibility on some level, and a resource for others who may not be as openly gay. A visual catalog of gay men and their stories. When I think of my own experience, and all the time I spent in the closet and hiding the fact that I was gay–to be at a place now where I feel completely comfortable being on the blog and telling the world “Hey, I’m a gay man,” I think there’s a power in that, for me and for a lot of the men on the blog. So it’s kind of a numbers game, I think the more men I photograph, the more impact the project has.
My dream is to take the project to as many different cities as I can across the world.” – Kevin Troung
I’m in love. I am so in love I can’t even stand it. I want to introduce you all to Craig Ramsay.
I first got a glimpsed of this blonde god on an episode of 2 Broke Girls during the Grindr episode and nearly fell off my couch. In a 5 second cameo he became one of my most favourite characters. It wasn’t until today that I realized how absolutely madly in internet love I was with this soon to be viral internet sensation. (Trust me, it’s going to happen).
Craig Ramsay has something called the 5 Minute Workout Anywhere, and when he says anywhere he MEANS it. Fitting rooms, the copy machine and even in church! Craig is not accepting your excuse for not finding 5 minutes to work out. Craig is a gem, I WISH he had a class here in town it would be the most popular thing in the city. The funny thing is these actually work! I do really really feel the burn. I am really making copies AND making progress. I am praying away those sinful calories!
You need to watch these clips and tell me what you think in the comments below!
I thought I’d do something I haven’t done for this week’s Sport Stud post and that is featuring a motorcycle racer. This week’s sports stud is the handsome motorcycle racer Randy de Puniet. The 32-year-old is a French Grand Prix motorcycle road racer. He is currently racing for the Power Electronics Aspar team in MotoGP (having raced in this class regularly since 2006). Previously, he took five wins in the 250cc class before he moved to the main class.
With his chiseled body and handsome good looks, he’s made his way into many magazines and has some sexy shirtless photos as a result. I never would of thought I’d be able to find shirtless photos of a motorcycle racer given how much clothing they wear, but alas I was wrong!
Check out some great photos of Randy de Puniet below!
Did you catch Lady Gaga’s holiday special on ABC? I didn’t, but stumbled upon the videos of the duets from the extravaganza. After checking them out, I’m half tempted to watch the entire thing. Perhaps, I’ll do it later this weekend as I’m nursing one of my hangovers ;)
During Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular, the 27-year-old pop star enlisted some expected and some not so expected duet partners. While Elton John and RuPaul are a given, seeing Joseph Gordon-Levitt join Mother Monster on “Baby It’s Cold Outside” was a pleasant surprise. Random, but appreciated. My favorite of the duets though has to be the one with RuPaul. They’re like two peas in a pod those two. The Drag Race host was serving fierceness from every pore of her body. Hunty definitely WEEEERKED it.
Clearly, Gaga enjoyed her time with the furry bunch. She’s set to join them on their eight film feature, Muppets Most Wanted, opening March 21. In the meantime, check out the vids below.
