It’s not a tumor rumor. It’s not a rumor at all. After 25 years of marriage, the former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have separated. The LA Times had speculated that this was the case, and as a result, the couple released the following statement:

“This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us. After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship.

We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and the center of both of our lives. We consider this a private matter and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment. We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public.”

And then… there were five. We are in to the eighth week of competition so now, more than ever is the time to lay all your cards on the table and push all the way to the end to prove you have wait it takes to win the coveted mirror ball trophy. Kirstie, Ralph, Chelsea, Hines and Romeo have made it this far but with tonight’s tough challenge, who will come out on top?

Tonight, the pros and their stars will perform not only one but TWO dances. The first will be a dance of their choice but added to the difficulty is the option to finally use a lift. The tougher part of the night comes in round two where the pros and stars must perform an instant dance. The couples have already been given their style and have choreographed a routine but will only be given their music after their first dance.

They then must quickly go into rehearsal and practice their routine to the new music they’ve been given to make it look as though that was their music the entire time and also, to keep glued together and not fall apart. Who will thrive and who may dive? We find out, tonight.

Often times when one refers to gay-targeted accommodations, one thinks of those clothing optional types of establishment. You know the type. The ones that seem like outdoor bathhouses instead of a nice comfortable places to stay. No disrespect to those places, but it’s nice to see a gay-owned hotel try to appeal to the discerning gay traveler. When we were invited to attend a hotel opening in Fort Lauderdale, I decided to extend my trip and hit Miami before hitting Los Angeles. One of the reasons being, I read about a brand new gay boutique hotel which just opened in the heart of South Beach. I definitely wanted to check it out after reading the awesome reviews for both their successful grand opening party in addition to their accommodations.

Having never been to South Beach or Miami prior, I had no idea what to expect. The only references I had in my head were “The Birdcage“, Gianni Versace and The Golden Girls. Here’s the funny thing. A combination of those three things is exactly what I would use to describe the Lords South Beach. It’s great campy fun and doesn’t take itself too seriously. Not to say the staff and service isn’t super fantastic, because it is. They were always there to help whenever I had an inquiry.

Watch Luciana’s “I’m Still Hot” Music Video

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

Several days ago, Luciana‘s video for “I’m Still Hot” was released and for some reason, I didn’t come across it until now…but guess what, it’s still hot. After having danced to her singing the song live in LA a few weeks ago with a few other Homorazzi cast, I was really excited to check out this video. One of the first things I noticed is that she wore won of the outfits from the video for her performance when we saw her.

The video perfectly matches the lyrics and vibe of the song. Whether she’s just waking up in the working or a hot mess hitchhiking on the side of the road, 33 year old Luciana literally is “still hot.” The video was produced and directed by The Burgoyne Brothers. I love how they incorporated the comic book visuals and random shots of her spotted lips – maybe because her label is Violent Lip Records? Anyway, the video is sick – love it! Keep ’em coming, Luciana! Sidenote: A while back, Homorazzi interviewed her and she commented on how she loves our name so much that she felt she should incorporate “Homorazzi” into a song. Check out Nic’s chat with her if you haven’t yet as well.

Watch the video below and let me know what you think!

There are a few reasons why you should party in the prairies this pride season. The first reason is that Winnipeg is probably the funnest place to party in the summer. On a sunny day, the temperatures are hot and there are plenty of beaches in the area to go around to catch some of the rays. The second reason is that Winnipegers or Manitobans in general are ALWAYS down to party. All you need is a two-four and you have anyone convinced. And third, this year’s Winnipeg Pride line up is “Gonna Make You Sweat” all week long.

Winnipeg Pride isn’t just a weekend of fun in the sun and parties to attend. There are events all week long to fulfill your pride wants and needs. The fun begins with the official Flag Raising Ceremony, Friday, May 27th. The Pride Flag is raised on a mast at City Hall and flies until the end of Pride, June 5th. To kick it all off, head to the “Karnival” Pride Kick-Off Party at Club Fame. This circus-like theme party is sure to shock your senses and get you ready to celebrate who you are.

If the sounds of a circus don’t entice you, then there is the OutWords Magazine Masquerade Ball at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Winnipeg. Dress your best and wear a great mask to enjoy some great entertainment and a chance to win some amazing prizes. You can also head out to Club 200 or Gio’s for their pride kick-off parties.

Listen To Lady Gaga’s “The Edge Of Glory”

In: Music, Patrick

As promised, Lady Gaga‘s new track “The Edge Of Glory” was released on iTunes today as her third single from the “Born This Way” album. Gaga sings her heart out on the upbeat track and I’m certain it’s definitely going to be a hit this summer. There’s no big surprises in the song in terms of the sound, but there is a saxophone, played by Clarence Clemons of the E Street Band, and it’s fantastic.

It’s the type of song I could picture friends singing full voice at the bar. Or better yet, two tipsy lovebirds getting down to it on the dancefloor, gazing into each others eyes and singing the lyrics to each other as they dance the last song of the night before heading home hand & hand. Well, after grabbing a delicious donair on the way home first of course.

Research company, Millward Brown has named Apple the number one most powerful brand in the world in their annual BrandZ 100 Global Top 100 power list. The spot was previously held by Google for the past four years. Apple is valued at $153 billion which is in 84% increase over last near. On the flip side, Google decreased by 2% in comparison to last year, valued at $111.5 billion.

Some of the names in the Top 100 were surprising to me, as I had know idea just how valuable these brands were in the whole scheme of things. A few of these are: Redbull, H&M, Zara, and Hermes. Also, Facebook is on the list for the first time, ranked at 35th with a value of $70 billion. That isn’t surprising to me, nor is the fact that BP (which is also on the list) had a 27% decrease over last year because of the terrible oil spill.

According to TMZ, ten days ago Whitney Houston checked into outpatient rehab for drug and alcohol addiction. She’s apparently cleaning herself up for an upcoming movie she’ll be in. Houston has struggled with addiction for a long time, so it’s great to see her getting help as she needs it.

So what’s the movie she’s going to be working on? Well, take a deep breath…it’s the sequel to “Waiting To Exhale.” The film is called “Getting Happy” (no, it’s not about Whitney’s drug problem) and all the original cast from the first film will star in the second. One of the stars, Angela Bassett, spoke on “The Talk” about the film and that everyone from the original cast (Whitney Houston, Lela Rochon, and Loretta Devine), would be in the sequel. Forest Whitaker is directed the film and currently working on the script.
