RuPaul Presents The CoverGurlz

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!, TV Shows
rupaul-the-covergurlz

“It’s like the Beyoncé album/video drop… but on a LeToya Luckett budget.” With a pitch like that from RuPaul herself, how can one not be intrigued. The RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 premiere is still a month away. This little gem should satisfy fans’ cravings for all things Drag Race until then.

RuPaul Presents: The CoverGurlz is a new album which features covers sung by Season 6 contestants. Even the superhunks of the Pit Crew get in on the action and sing one of RuPaul’s greatest hits. The album is available on iTunes for $9.99. World of Wonder uploaded preview videos of each queen performing her cover song, along with footage from their audition clips and other exclusive footage.

I have to say some of the ladies really pull off their covers and dare I say, sound even better than RuPaul. Not surprisingly, Adore Delano sounds great belting “Superstar.” After all, he did make it to the semifinals during the seventh season of American Idol. Check out all the videos below.

miley-cyrus-mtv-unplugged

Madonna is passing the torch once again to a pop princess. The “Like A Virgin” singer infamously swapped spit with both Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera years ago at the MTV VMAs. This time it’s Miley Cyrus’ turn. However, don’t expect any lip-on-lip action. Early reports say nothing like that happened, although, plenty of bumpin’ and grindin’ occurred. Cyrus even slapped Madge’s butt several times.

“That was pretty f–king cool, you guys,” Miley told E! Online. “It sounds super-lame, but as a pop star it’s pretty cool performing with Madonna…Today was one of those days that it was really easy to get out of bed.”

Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged taped Tuesday night at Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood in front of an audience of about 220 people, including Scandal stars Guillermo Diaz (Huck) and Darby Stanchfield (Abby) who sat in the front row. MTV will air the special tonight, Wednesday, January 29.

NBC Shuts Down Production For Sean Saves The World

Not only did Sean Hayes not save the world, but he did squat for Thursday nights on NBC. The peacock network has yanked the sitcom from its schedule and halted production. Definitely not a surprise given its anemic ratings and the fact none of the comedy’s cast members were present at the Television Critics Tour earlier this month.

While Sean Saves The World sucked majorly, I’m a little bummed NBC canceled it now. Though it makes perfect sense given the upcoming Winter Olympics are coming and why use that valuable opportunity to promote a dead show walking. NBC requested 18 episodes but have only aired 13 and have a 14th unaired finished one in the wings.

melissa-mccarthy-snl-promos

Melissa McCarthy hosts Saturday Night Live for the third time this weekend. She’ll be joined by recent Grammy winners, Imagine Dragons, as the episode’s musical guest. Lorne Michaels was wise to enlist McCarthy once again. She’s proven she can deliver huge laughs and fits in quite well with the cast.

As amusing as the sight of McCarthy sucker punching Thompson is, the funniest parts of the clips are the creative ways the two hype the show without using the words ‘Super Bowl‘ or ‘Olympics.’ Since the big game is airing on FOX this year, the peacock network can’t actually say the phrase. For legal reasons, the IOC is equality stringent in how the term Olympics is used. That’s why McCarthy talks about buying an ‘official torch’ as opposed to saying the ‘o’ word. Check out the series of promos below.

NBC Picks Up Gay-Themed Sitcom From Ellen DeGeneres

Hopefully for Ellen DeGeneres, NBC sticks with her new gay-themed show longer than Ryan Murphy’s The New Normal. Who else misses that show?

The peacock network just picked up a pilot from the talk show host. Tentatively titled, One Big Happy, the comedy is being developed by Warner Bros. TV and DeGeneres. Liz Feldman whose credits included Hot In Cleveland and 2 Broke Girls is writing the script. The premise of the potential sitcom sounds an awful lot like one of NBC’s past hits, Will & Grace.

Here’s the official logline for the show: “When gay and straight best friends decide to have a baby together, things get complicated when one of them finds the love of their life.”

Are you looking forward to this LGBT-themed show? Do you think Ellen and NBC have a potential winner on their hands? Weigh in below.

Disney Channel Features Its First Same-Sex Couple

While Macklemore & Ryan Lewis serenaded 33 couples as they tied the knot at the Grammys, Disney Channel was making its own statement on Sunday night. For the first time ever, one of their programs featured a same-sex couple. The network first announced its plan to include a lesbian couple back in June 2013. Naturally, groups like One Million Moms protested their decision.

“This particular storyline was developed under the consultancy of child development experts and community advisors,” a Disney Channel spokesperson told TV Guide. “Like all Disney Channel programming, it was developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness.”

Near the beginning of last week’s episode of Good Luck Charlie, parents Bob and Amy Duncan argue about the mother’s name of their daughter’s playdate. When the doorbell rings, the mystery is solved… the kid has two moms. What’s great about Disney’s inclusion is that the introduction of the same-sex couple wasn’t a big deal. The episode didn’t revolve around it and in fact, the playdate wasn’t even a plotline. It was all pretty casual and matter of a fact. Check out the clip below.

Rosie O’Donnell Returns To The View

Hell must’ve frozen over. I never thought I’d see the day, but Rosie O’Donnell returns to her former stomping grounds on February 7. Albeit as a guest, but still. I thought she’d never step foot on the daytime show again. I suppose with Elisabeth Hasselbeck no longer on The View panel, it was easier for producers to reach a détente with the former co-host. It’ll mark her first appearance since she moderated The View during its 2006-2007 season.

“I have great affection for Rosie and we have remained in contact throughout the years. I am happy to welcome her back to the program. She is always a lively and engaging guest and a part of the show’s successful history,” – Barbara Walters

After leaving the show, O’Donnell expressed she experienced something like post-traumatic stress disorder. A source tells People magazine that “She wanted to go back and visit The View to celebrate Barbara’s last season and talk about her ABC show The Fosters and her one woman show.” To relive the infamous fight between Hasselbeck and O’Donnell, watch the video below.

amazing-race-24-all-star-teams

For it’s 24th race around the world, The Amazing Race is going the All-Stars route once again. The CBS show first did one in Season 11 and then Season 18- the latter being dubbed Unfinished Business. Back in December, I spoiled the rumored teams competing. With exception to one returning team, the spoilers were true. However, I still have a feeling something happens that will fulfill my original post.

Teams will be put to the test as they travel through four continents and nine countries, spanning more than 35,000 miles. The Race will take them on a mission high above the city in Guangzhou, China, rappelling down the roaring rapids of the Kiansom Waterfall in Malaysia, fighting with Gladiators in Rome, Italy and fueling up vehicles in Sri Lanka. In a dramatic twist, one team will not make it to the starting line.

As I mentioned previously, I have a problem with teams coming back for a third time. Producers need to spread the wealth. I’m fine with a shot at redemption, but how many chances does one need? Check out the official team photos below. The Amazing Race returns on Sunday, February 23.
