EXCLUSIVE: LeAnn Rhimes Responds To Anger Over Playing At GOP Dinner After Saying She Supports Gay Rights

This morning I posted about singer LeeAnn Rhimes who in December appeared on stage with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles for their annual holiday concert and at one point in the faced the crowd, in tears, and spoke about “the very tragic year for young gay men and women who’ve been taking their own lives and her support for the LGBT Community and then just yesterday performed at an exclusive fundraiser in Washington D.C. for the incoming freshman class of Republicans who are as anti-gay as it gets and support hate groups and anti-gay measures that push LGBT teens to suicide and victimize the LGBT Community by denying us our equal rights.

So doing what any good cyberhomo would do I headed over to Twitter and sent Miss Two Faced Rhimes the link to my post and asked for a response.  And I got one!

You see her performance last night had nothing to do with politics.  It was because she’s an entertainer. Or in real speak the paycheck was BIG. After a few tweets back to Ms. Rhimes congratulating her for the fact that she’d probably play at a KKK rally for the right amount of money because she’s an entertainer she blocked me from Retweeting her tweets and hastily started deleting the.  But thanks to my handy dandy snipping tool I was able to capture them.

Turns out that Leanne Rhimes supports gay rights and LGBT equality so much that she will do special performances for those who are responsible for harming us for a nice fat paycheck.  I mean wouldn’t any performer who supported the LGBT community?  Bette Midler?  Kathy Griffin?, Cher?, Cyndy Lauper?, Margeret Cho?, shall I keep going on?  Well maybe I shouldn’t the people I mentioned actually have talent.

So Leanne here I am calling you out because if it wasn’t for politics thank you are nothing more than a two faced greedy money grubbing fame whore.  If it was politics you are still a greedy money grubbing fame whore and a two faced bitch on top of it.  Because if you did care about us and all those poor LGBT teenagers who have tragically lost their lives and gay rights and equality you wouldn;t be entertaining the ones who are killing us.

The Two Faces Of LeAnn – Rimes Performs For Anti-Gay GOP’s After Singing With Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles

LeAnn Rimes who recently appeared on stage with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles for their annual holiday concert  who at one point in the evening faced the crowd, in tears, and spoke about “the very tragic year for young gay men and women who’ve been taking their own lives because they can’t be themselves.  Well it seems Ms. Rhimes cares more about money than LGBT teen lives or adults for that matter and performed last night in Washington D.C. for the incoming freshman class of Republicans who are anti-gay rights. And vote against things like Anti- Bully laws, Hate Crime Laws, DADT, ENDA, and anything else that furthers gay rights.

The party was  hosted by California’s incoming Rep. Jeff Denham, who, while a state senator, did things like repeatedly vote against the recognition of gay marriages from other states

Way to go there LeAnne.  Unless you donate every cent of that GOP gay blood money fee to a pro-gay your words at the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles fall flat and prove that you are nothing more than a greedy fame whore and that your convictions to the LGBT Community and gay at risk teens are as weak as your vocals.

Video – BEST American Pyscho Inspired Music Video EVER! – "This Must Be The Place" cover by Miles Fisher

I posted this music video awhile ago and its so insanely awesome (and Miles Fisher is so in sanely cute) that it certainly demands a repost for those who missed it. 

Miles Fisher’s cover of the Talking Heads’ “This Must Be The Place” has practically redefined the word catchy with two of my favorite things:  A spot on imitation of Christian Bale and a homage to the cult classic American Pyscho.

It’s totally awesome, even better than a reservation at Dorsia 

Rupert Everett Stop Your Whining! – The Gays Playing Straight In Hollywood Debate

Over the past week we’ve not only had to put up with Richard Chamberlain telling gay actors to stay in the closet, Kevin Spacey calling people who want him to come out “bullies”, Rupert Everett’s incessant whining about why no one will hire him because he’s gay. (Not that his rumoured drug problem, boorish behavior, and the fact that he’s burned more bridges than the Allied forces in WWII has anything to do with it.) and the return of hack writer  Ramin Setoodeh — who famously declared that openly gay actors are not convincing in straight roles.  All of it is BULLSHIT and all of it just feeds the fire of intolerance and does not expose it.

There are many reasons why openly gay actors aren’t cast in gay roles.  One being that there aren’t many of them who are actually “out” and the second being that many don’t want to be cast in gay roles because they are afraid they’ll be pigeonholed and will only be cast in gay roles.  Except for Rupert of course who will take any work that he can get. 

Then we have the Sean Hayes argument that gay men can’t play straight.  Well I am sorry to say this but some can’t.  Not because they are gay but because they are  lousy actors and anyone who saw “Promises, Promises” or any clips from it has to admit that in Hayes case it was definitely the later.  He couldn’t convincingly play straight.  Christen Chenowirth was butcher than he was.  And there have been plenty of gay men in the past who have played straight roles it’s just that nobody knew it because they were hiding in the closet due to fear. And there are openly gay men playing straight.  Let us not forget that Neil Patrick Harris playing straight horndog Barney on How I met Your Mother and no one is gayer than NPH!  So it can be done…..if you actually have talent that is.

And as for Richard Chamberlain and his “Gay actors stay in the closet like I did until your career is dead and you can’t get any roles like I did” advice/  Here’s some news for you Dick.  It was a much different time when you were BIG in Hollywood, and yes then there probably would have been a problem if you walked the red carpet with another man but guess what?  Everyone knew you were a HOMO anyway!  Just like people knew Rock Hudson, Liberace, Jim Nabors, James Whale, Colin Clive, and Randolph Scott among many others back in the day were gay,  People did know they just didn’t talk about it.  But it is a different time, a different CENTURY and as long as this fear is perpetuated in Hollywood not by the casting directors, producers the studios but by the closeted and in one case, a bitter out gay actor it will never get any better.

"Southland" Featuring Gay Police Officer Returns January 4, 2011 On TNT

The gritty realistic Los Angeles-based crime drama Southland returns for a third season on TNT January 4th, which will include the return of Michael Cudlitz as gay, but closeted ass kicking badass with a heart Police Officer John Cooper who thankfully is one of if not the ONLY strongest stereotype breakers and “butchest” as in “just a regular guy who happens to be gay” portrayals on television right now which which is sorely needed. 

Southland had its the first season, where The series coyfully played with Cudlitz’s character of coopers homosexuality dragging it out until almost the end of its short first season.  NBC renewed the show for a second season but then canceled the show before any episodes were aired, because of the Jay Leno fiasco which would have pushed Southland to a 9pm timeslot which they thought it was too dark for.  TNT then rescued the show with Season 2 ending with Cooper’s sexual orientation being questioned by one of his colleagues.

Southland’s Officer John Copper is the type of gay character representation that we need.  He not a vapid queen, nor does he wear a wig, sing, an adopted Asian child, or wear a cardigan.  It’s high time that the gay swish stereotype on television was broken.

Kudos to Southlamd and Cudlitz for expanding the perceptions of gay men and breaking the television stereotype barrier.

Mickey Rourke To Play Gay UK Rugby Icon Gareth Thomas – Noooooooooooooooo!

Today in our Beauty and the Beast file……

There had been whispers that Mickey Rourke (Beast) was interested in starring in a biopic of openly gay Rugby Icon (Beauty) Gareth Thomas’ life story,  Last night Rourke confirmed it as he discussed the project on Alan Carr’s UK talk show Chatty Man.

Carr: Is it true you’re about to play a gay rugby player?

Rourke: You’re not supposed to say that, okay? Here’s the deal. When I met the rugby player, Gareth Thomas, this is one thing that he and I talked about. This is something that’s really important. We’re doing a movie about a man who plays rugby who is gay.

Carr: Oh, I see. Sorry, I shouldn’t be so homophobic.

Rourke: That’s the point though.

Carr: Labels.

Rourke: Abso-fucking-lutely. I read the story. it’s one of the tougest, hardest sports in the world to play. They play with no pads. They play… it’s a really brutal sport. To be a man who plays rugby who is gay and to live with that secret for the amount of years that Gareth had, to perform at the high level that he performed at, it takes a lot of courage.

Carr: Are you going to learn the Welsh?

Rourke: I have no choice.

Now I admire Gareth Thomas and the courage it took him to come out and truly be himself.  Also he’s a frakin STUD.  But Rourke playing Thomas has to be THE WORST CASTING EVER.

 Other than the fact that Mickey Rourke was born in 1952. and Gareth Thomas was born in 1974. And yes, I know the next statement is very superficial of me but one of the ugliest creatures walking the planet will be playing one of the most beautiful creatures walking the planet. 

WTF?  Is Jason Statham, Vinnie Jones or Arnold Vosloo too busy?

If they actually find a backer insane enough to fund Rourke playing Gareth and this movie gets made it will drop down a few thousand notches on my must-see list right behind the Johnny Weir Story starring Johnny Weir.

The staff arrive early in the morning to discuss various ideas on how to boost sales. However once Mr.Rumbold arrives, he informs them that Mr.Grace has already decided that the staff should dress up in novelty costumes in an attempt to attract customers.

Nothing says “Gay” and  “Christmas” quite like Mr. Humpfries and Mrs. Slocum and her pussy!
