Model Behavior: Ryan Bertroche

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!

With all the awesome feedback I’ve been getting for all my Model Behavior picks lately, we should really start referring to Tuesdays as the new hump day. Admit it. All you horny boys and girls really want to do, is just hump my male model picks. This week’s selection is going to carry on that hot tradition I’ve started here at

What is about those corn fed boys that make them so appealing? Ryan Bertroche was born and bred in Iowa and grew up in a farming community. Think of the hoedowns he must’ve gone to. And how cute is this… his hobbies and interests include riding horses and helping other farmers in his home town. Sooooo sweet. He’s not all country though, he also enjoys wakeboarding, dirt bike riding and skateboarding.

Bertroche started modeling shortly after graduation and his career quickly took off. He’s worked with respected photographers including Bruce Weber, Mariano Vivanco, Alasdir Mclellan and Carlotta Manaigo. Ryan has also appeared in high gloss fashion mags such as V magazine, Arena Homme Plus, Vogue Homme Japan, Out Magazine, and Sports and Style. His most recent works include appearing in Dolce & Gabbana’s Uomini book where top male models posed buck naked. Bertroche was also a featured model in Calvin Klein’s 2010 underwear holiday campaign. When you take a look at his pics below, you’ll see why he’s highly in demand.

I completely admit, me being über excited about this breaking news is a tad bit lame, but whatevs. “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is reality television heaven. The mixture of the opulence, superfluous plastic surgery, ridiculous catfights, family alcoholic drama and psychological mind games is what all the other ladies in the Housewives franchise only strive to be. You need not look any further than the series debut of the shows airing before and after Beverly Hills’ season. Both the first seasons of D.C. and Miami (which is currently airing) lack that extra oomph and water cooler buzz that made BH extremely addictive. Even Atlanta’s third season paled when compared to the middle-aged 90210’ers.

While Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne Maloof, Kyle Richards and Taylor Armstrong were all locks to return, the remaining two housewives weren’t sure things. For weeks leading up to the reunion show, Camille Grammer teased she wouldn’t commit to a second season til the rest of the season played out. Let’s face it, she was the one who came off the worst during the freshman series. Kim Richards, on the other hand, seemed even more less likely to return. She got a severe emotional beatdown courtesy of her younger sister, Kyle, for calling her out on her alcoholism. As the reunion played out, it looked like Kim wasn’t emotionally capable to return- or even finish the reunion.

A while back, Donovan wrote about a robot nurse named Actroid-F that had been created to take care of patients. Now, a different model called Geminoid DK has been created and it looks even more life like. Japanese entertainment company Kokoro has been working with Danish academic Henrik Scharfe to create a robot clone of himself.

Geminoids are remote-controled robots powered by a air servo system. They mimic everything that humans do through motion-tracking gear and an internet link. They are extremely life-like, and if you watched the Battlestar Galactica series, you’ll understand my Cylon reference in the title. In the series, man created robots…which ended up evolving to look like humans. Eventually, they became the enemy. In Donovan’s Nurse Robot post, he mentioned that he believes that robots are what will ultimately rule the earth and be the end of us. Who knows what will happen, but I definitely can’t say that it can’t be ruled out as a possibility. If this robot is where we are now, imagine what I’d be writing about in 20 years…

On February 28th, I had the pleasure of attending The Vancouver Men’s Chorus (VMC) video launch party for their contribution to the It Gets Better Project. The media release was held at CBC headquarters in Vancouver and kicked off with a few words from organizer Yogi Omar and then when into a quick speech from Jen Sung, Youth Outreach Coordinator for Out In Schools. Jen told a personal story of a time when she was leaving a club, walking hand in had with her girlfriend and was called a dyke. She recalled the feeling of anxiety attached to that word and all those fears came rushing back, all from one simple word. The story continued, tying in the importance of projects like “It Gets Better” and continual educational programs like Out In Schools that help prevent homophobia and bullying.

I commend the The Vancouver Men’s Chorus for contributing to the “It Gets Better” project and deciding to have a voice (and quite a nice musical one at that). With persistence we can one day put at stop to homophobia and bullying and I look forward to that day.

Charlie Sheen, You’re Fired!!!

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

It’s official. Warner Bros., the studio that produces “Two and a Half Men” said sayonara to television’s highest paid actor in a press release today. It was bound to happen after all of Charlie Sheen’s string of bizarre interviews, where he progressively became unhinged. At this point, it just became a guessing game as to when the axe would eventually fall.

“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on Two and a Half Men effective immediately,” – Warner Bros.

As expected, Sheen put his two cents in on the situation, by calling it “very good news” and released a statement of his own.

Every week should start off with an underwear clad Rafael Nadal glistening from head to toe. YUMMY is all I have to say. The superstar tennis champion sizzles in every frame of his new Emporio Armani Underwear video clip. A few weeks ago, we got a look at Megan Fox and Nadal’s first promotional pics from Emporio’s new ad campaign. Then last week the fashion label released Fox’s latest video clip for them and today we get to see what Rafa is made off.

The 24-year-old Spanish stud struts around shirtless wearing a pair of Armani jeans and his snugly fit Armani underwear– now that’s what I call support. The clip displays his very appealing assets while he’s doused with buckets of water. He’s so smoking hot, both David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo are but a distant memory. Both of them used to be pitchmen for the brand. Watch Nadal’s sexy new video below for Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans’s Spring/Summer 2011 and see how he stacks up to those two other studs.

Alexis Jordan Asks “How You Like Me Now?”

In: Music, Tyrell

Her album may be already released across the pond, but us here in North America are still dying for some more Alexis Jordan in our lives. Girl must be popular overseas however because when I went to Amazon to try and snag a copy of the import, I was informed they are temporarily out of stock.

You may remember Alexis from her infectious summer hit Happiness which quickly became a gay anthem around pride when Dave Aude took to the studio to give her a killer remix. Her second single Good Girl fit the same style and genre and showed us that she can be queen of the dance floor.

But now a third song titled How You Like Me Now has surfaced and I must say, I am a fan. Its not anything close to her two previous singles. This jam has a bit more of an urban edge and really shows why she’s signed to Roc Nation with her R&B vocals shining through.

Check out the track after the jump.
