Okay, Gays, I have a hard thing to discuss: How bad is The A-list, which premiered last night on Logo? Imagine Dish, more than excited. Finally, a real housewives show with real divas from her town. Now, 24 hours later, I shudder to think of how my eyes were violated by this offensive cliché of gay New York. First of all, the term "A-List" is so embarrassingly passé, someone should be fired. Also, 90% of the gay world is A-list so just using the term is redundant. And how dare you--producers--put this dull, tired poster of hunk-masters playing in a pool to advertise this travesty. I know some men who'd fit into this poster, but many gays aren't all about being gay. Or at least, they have jobs, carry on real conversations, do menial tasks outside of the facials, massages and celeb-air-kissing. Not every mo is swishy! This show makes New York and gays looks terrible!
We've seen the gay stereotypes (assistant, bff, stylist, confidant, wedding planner) on all the other reality TV shows related to fashion and celebrity. This show repeats the same boring sh*t! The guys featured are barely likeable (except Ryan and Derek who are 100% wretched)--just not original, except for maybe the photographer who might sport complexity and 1/2 a brain. Show us something different, Logo, and relevant--something with pride.
