Mayer played the role a closeted man who’s married to lesbian Playboy Bunny Alice (Leah Renee Cudmore) and is involved with launching the Chicago chapter of the Mattachine Society, the underground gay-rights group from the ’50s and ’60s.
NBC has decided to cancel the show after after only 3 episodes due to low rating. But thats not stoping rightwing nut Dan Issett, and his Parents Television Council, for jumping on and trying to get some free publicity by lying and claiming credit for “boiling the bunny”
The show would still be on the air if people hadn’t stood up and spoken out to the sponsors of the show and the advertisers on the show,” Issett suggests. “So there’s a lot of credit that needs to be given to people around the country who made the simple step of just letting their opinion be known about this.” He says that was the bottom line to NBC’s decision to end the show that was designed “to promote the Playboy brand”. So Issett says that is what it will take in the future to get the point across to the entertainment industry. And he hopes that those making programming decisions in the future will more carefully consider whether the content of a show or movie violates public trust.
Blah, blah, blah. blah, blah. Stick a bunny tail in it wingnutter.
Best of luck to the courageous, hot, and handsome Sean Maher and lets hope he gets another role very soon. (One that’s shirtless….a lot)
I’m 22, I move to L.A., and it’s such a cliché, but the day I arrive, publicists from the show took me out to The Ivy for lunch…They’re telling me, ‘You know, gosh, we’d really appreciate it if you could keep your girlfriend on the side because we want to appeal to the female demographic of the show.’ …At that moment, I didn’t think to say, ‘Oh, I’m gay,’ because right before I left New York [where he went to college at NYU], I had my manager tell me: ‘You need to get a girl on your arm or people will start talking.’ I remember telling him: ‘I’m gay.’ He had no idea. And he said: ‘All the more reason to get a girl on your arm.’ My agent was also like, ‘It’s best if you keep your options open. Maybe bisexual?’”
It was so exhausting, and I was so miserable. I didn’t really have any life other than work and this façade I was putting on. So I kept my friends from college [where he was out] separate from my work friends, and that was very confusing. I just kept going on and on painting this picture of somebody I wasn’t. I didn’t have time for a personal relationship anyway. And you just don’t realize that it’s eating away at your soul.”
