OUT magazine just revealed their annual Power 50 list. Who doesn’t love a good list, right? For seven years, the publication has ranked powerful and prestigious gay men and women who have tremendous influence. The list is compiled of Hollywood power players, publishing magnates, political figures, web entrepreneurs and everything in between.
Once again, Apple CEO Tim Cook ranked No. 1 on the list. Along with increasing the company’s bottom line, he gets the hottest seats in town. Cook sat next to Michelle Obama at the State of the Union address.
If you read Homorazzi regularly, you know I have the biggest hard-on for Andy Cohen and his army of Housewives. Guess what? My silver fox crush made the list. See where he placed along with a few of my favorites below. It’s kinda funny how Clive Davis made the list now that he’s newly out. Side note: Aren’t the photo illustrations great. They were all created by Mario Wagner.
This is exactly why I just adore this man. If you read my recent post about the beef between Adrienne Maloof and him, you know that the reunion specials are my favorite part of any Real Housewives season. After watching this promo vid featuring my silver fox Man Crush, I’m even more excited for the three-part RHOA reunion special starting on April 7. Coming off moderating back-to-back reunion specials for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Andy Cohen probably needs some downtime. I know I would after listening to women yell at each other for countless hours over petty topics ;)
In the clip, the 44-year-old Bravo exec parodies Justin Timberlake’s “I’m Ready.” If you recall, the “Suit & Tie” singer announced his comeback in the black and white video. In Cohen’s version, he drops multiple Housewives references while declaring his love for his stable of arguing women. “Housewives mean more to me more than anybody else in the world,” says Cohen in the clip. Duh!!! No question without them, Andy wouldn’t a Bravo-lebrity himself.
The promo below features some of the most memorable lines from RHOA this season including “Gone with the Wind fabulous,’ “Donkey booties,” and Porscha Stewart’s infamous blond moment about 265 days in a year. Other shows from the Housewives franchise are also represented in the clip like Ana’s mysterious folder of incriminating evidence she waved around during the Miami Season 2 reunion. My favorite part, though, is when Kenya Moore whips out her fan as Andy walks by. So draglicious. Check it out below.
My favorite part of any Real Housewives season is the reunion show. After reliving all the drama and watching all the “private” confessionals, the ladies are ready to battle and call each other out for all the trash-talking done behind the backs. When I heard that Adrienne Maloof skipped out on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 3 reunion taping, I was livid.
Maloof knew fully well that she would be the target and have to defend her actions, respond to all the lies and talk about her divorce. Speaking of the latter, she claimed a contract signed with her ex-husband, Paul Nassif, prevented her from showing up. Funny enough, Nassif taped a segment for the reunion and talked about the divorce. Another piece of BS from Miss Adrienne.
“She is also not allowed to talk about her divorce; there is a gag order in place, and she was concerned she is going to be pushed into a corner and repeatedly asked about it, and that will compromise the divorce agreement. It is too dangerous and the repercussions too severe for her to put herself in that situation.” – Maloof source
Her playing hooky just proved how much of a coward she is. Teresa Giudice (RHONJ), Danielle Staub (RHONJ), NeNe Lekes (RHOA), Michaele Salahi (RHODC) and Jill Zarin (RHONJ) all attended their respective reunions despite knowing they were going to be attacked. After Maloof’s stunt, I have more respect for all those ladies. If you dish it, be prepared to take it. Words I live by.
The reunion shows bring in huge ratings for Bravo. Naturally, Andy Cohen was pissed that she breached her contract. Like fans, he’s been chomping at the bits to question her all season long. I was wondering how the Bravo exec was going to address it. Thankfully, the network gave a sneak peek and boy, does Cohen take her to task. I love him even more for being a bit snippy. After accommodating her all season long, she pulls a stunt like this. Check out his words below, along with why she thinks his actions are unprofessional.
No wonder some of her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costars hate her. Brandi Glanville is the shizz. Her celebrity profile has risen as of late. She’s probably the second most popular RHOBH next to Lisa Vanderpump. To boot, it appears she’s Andy Cohen’s current pet. The Bravo exec, to date, has booked her four times on his Watch What Happens Live! show this season. The most recent being during his live SXSW shows where she appeared solo. He doesn’t do that unless he really, really, really likes you. If that wasn’t enough, the statuesque blond hooks up with some pretty hot men.
When she first appeared on WWHL with Cohen, she admitted she slept with Gerard Butler during a round of Plead The Fifth. Days following that, TMZ caught up with Butler and asked him how he felt about Brandi rating their sexual experience an 11 out of 10. Gerard responded “Brandi who?”. Brandi haters took this as an instance of Glanville fudging the truth. Months later, Gerard is now finally copping to his tryst with her. Brandi may be a lot of things, but one this is for sure… she always tells the truth. Just ask Adrienne Maloof ;)
During an interview with Howard Stern, he reveals the two met at a beach party. One thing lead to another and before you knew it, they were knocking boots. The reason why he responded the way he did to TMZ was because he had no idea she was a “celebrity” and didn’t know her last name. LOL. Love that he’s such a man whore. Check out his admission below.
If you’re a regular reader of Homorazzi, you know I have a serious Man Crush for Andy Cohen. He’s not the typical guy I fall for, but I find him so adorably geeky. By the time 2014 rolls around, I’m making it a goal to meet him and watch a taping of his Watch What Happens Live talk show. Drinks, Housewives, silly games and shirtless bartenders (hopefully)… sounds like the perfect night to me.
The 44-year-old Bravo exec appears in the latest issue of GQ magazine. Photographed by Eric Ray Davidson, the silver fox looks especially sexy in his photo spread. Given that I’m a little biased due to my crush, one might think I’m exaggerating, but I’m not. Andy looks mighty fine.
Along with modeling an array of stylish suits, Cohen talks about his relationships with his army of Bravolebrities, straight men viewers and which Hollywood actress could turn him straight. Check out his responses to these topics along with a couple of photos (including a urinal pic *wink*) from his GQ feature below. God, I just adore him ;)
“I feel a weird kinship with them, ’cause I actually feel responsible,” he says. On-air, Andy is skilled at maintaining a legit allegiance to his Housewives—and all guests, more generally—while simultaneously winking at the audience. “I think on my show or at the reunions, I can sense if the camera’s on me, and if they’re getting my response. And I feel like through my expressions, it’s fairly clear what I’m thinking. But at the end of the day, first and foremost, I’m always an enthusiast.”
As you probably know by now, actor Eddie Cibrian and Brandi Glanville (from The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills) used to be married, but Cibrian ended up having an affair with singer actress LeAnn Rimes while filming Northern Lights back in 2009.
With Rimes and Cibrian now married, Glanville has more recently started saying more in the media, as has Rimes. In fact, not too long ago, Rimes sat down with Giuliana Rancic for E! in a one-on-one interview about why and how the infedelity happened. Since then, the women have been back & forth talking smack with each other. This week on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Glanville called Rimes “insane“. Meanwhile, last night Rimes went on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her new album, Spitfire (coming out in April) and when asked about why she engages in the feud with Glanville, she said that sometimes she just wants to tell her, “Screw You!”
Watch both interviews below and share your thoughts on who you think is in the right or if you think they’re both crazy. Meanwhile, Eddie Cibrian is…doing what?
I don’t know what the world Donald Trump was thinking when he decided to hold the Miss Universe pageant one week before Christmas. The whole holiday theme and set just felt a bit odd. For me, the pageant belongs in the spring or summer. Trump’s people seriously need to knock some sense into him. I swear he’s getting a bit more senile in his old age. In his defense, he probably thought airing it at this time might benefit the show’s ratings. Last year’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show scored boffo ratings. They’re practically the same show but with more clothing ;)
The Christmas trees and snowflakes were the least of his worries, the beauty pageant was probably the worst produced Miss Universe I can recall. From the audio glitches in the beginning and the awful pre-recorded segments, it was one big snooze fest. Thankfully, I taped it and watched the entire 2 hour pageant in just 30 minutes.
Once again Andy Cohen (my silver fox crush) and Giuliana Rancic hosted the event, with Jeannie Mai serving as fashion correspondent. A few of the notable celebrity judges included Nigel Barker (glad to see he’s been busy since ANTM), Lisa Vanderpump (my fave RHOBH), Scott Disick, Brad Goreski, Diego Boneta and Kerri Walsh Jennings to name a few. On deck to perform were Train and Nigerian-born Aussie singer Timomatic.
Overall, this year’s Top 5 were a decent bunch. That said, I was a little bummed, my early favorite, Miss South Africa, only made the Top 10. Speaking of Africa, this was the first time since 2002 that no black candidates made the semifinals. They didn’t even win one of the special awards. Best National Costume went to Miss China and Miss Congeniality and Miss Photogenic went to Miss Guatemala and Miss Kosovo respectively. Check out this year’s Top 5 below.
Let’s call a spade a spade. The boys of One Direction are twinks. There, I said it. Personally, I don’t think the term is offensive at all. Mind you, I don’t take offense too easily to certain words that others might find derogatory. Too many people are way too sensitive these days. My rule of thumb is, if it’s not coming from a malicious place, to quote Joy Behar’s signature line “so what? who cares?“.
This openly-gay celebrity appeared on the Today Show a few days ago and bumped into One Direction after the boy band’s performance. Afterwards, he went on to tweet the following.
“This morning, I went into the normal green room that we typically go into. I barged in, there are all these people in front of us. Oh, it’s all the leftover One Direction fans. I barged right into a room of twinks: One Direction! Security was not exactly too tight, with all due respect. I barged right in. It was crazy!”
Have any ideas on who it could be? To be perfectly honest, the only person above I CAN’T see saying it is Matt Bomer. All the others, are definite contenders if you ask me. Especially that Elton John ;) Find out who it is below.
