Long before Housewives were synonymous with Bravo, the network relied on five stylish gay guys to bring in the viewers. The second Queer Eye for the Straight Guy premiered, it became a phenomenon, making Ted Allen, Jai Rodriguez, Thom Felicia, Kyan Douglas and Carson Kressley instant celebrities.
The Emmy award-winning show’s premise played with stereotypes that gay men are superior in matters of fashion, style, personal grooming, interior design and culture. Eventually, the show shortened its name to just Queer Eye to include women and gay guys as the subject of their makeovers.
This October, Bravo is reuniting the Fab Five for a special titled Queer Eye Reunion: 10 Years Later. My silver fox crush Andy Cohen will host the special where the cast reflects on the ground-breaking series, reveal behind-the-scenes tidbits and give updates on their lives now. My personal favorites were Douglas and Rodriguez. Who were yours? Are you looking forward to the reunion? Sound off below.
Lance Bass has himself a new man. People.com is reporting that the former ‘N Syncer is dating the hunky Lorenzo Martone, who was the onetime fiance of designer Marc Jacobs. Guess you won’t be seeing Bass seating in the front row of Jacob’s next fashion show.
“They’re dating each other regularly, really like each other and enjoy each other’s company,” a friend of the couple tells the magazine. “They’re going to take it one day at a time and see how it goes.”
The happy new couple have been reportedly dating for two months now. Considering Martone and Jacobs just parted ways in April, this could reek of REBOUND city, but Bass is coming of a failed relationship himself. Lance was recently shacking up with Kyan Douglas of “Queer Eye For The Straight Guy” fame.
In another photoshoot with photographer Mike Ruiz, Lance Bass puts the cake on the face hard core, revealing a fierce, edgy, and more feminine side of himself – or of Adam Lambert. Bass (who used to date Reichen a long time ago) had apparently been dating Queen Eye for the Straight Guy star Kyan Douglas, but the latest from the NY post is that he’s now dating Sebastien Leal, a trainer and aspiring actor. Wonder if these shots turn them on?
“No Strings Attached…”
