And while I so appreciate all of Kathy's passion and efforts on civil rights, and get that it is her stand up schtick with the whole "where are my gays?!", I think Kathy needs to evolve a little herself. It is a small but significant thing for me in this current socio-political atmosphere of rancor towards anything not wealthy, white established and straight male, for Kathy to still lump all homosexuals into a homogenous lump. For an ally to our cause to continue to do so seems so old and even, completely unintentional I know, narrow minded. I'm not a gay person. I'm a person who happens to be gay. If we can't get people on our side to stop, even in fun and comedy, to think we act and react as a single mass, how the hell are we going to push back the likes of the Mitt Romneys and Rick Santorums in the world? And on a more superficial note, I am humorously insulted to think that I am automatically assumed to have watched a single episode of The A-List. Sorry Kathy. I missed the orders from the Grand Fabulous Leader on high. That and I loathe that Reichen creature and refuse to watch anything he appears on.'
Oh, I'm right there with you. I am so tired of Kathy's mentality that gays should be funny and cute and there for her enjoyment. As much as I enjoy Kathy I hate the fact that she marginalizes gays. This shit has got to stop. It seems to be the current version of Stepin Fetchit/Amos and Andy. The truth is we are fun and boring, cute and ugly, enjoyable and repulsive, smart and stupid, witty and inane. Just like straight people. Imagine that.
Reichen who? I have banished him from my memory bank. And Rodiney too. But sadly, I cannot get Rodiney's phrasing of "Bitch, please" out of my head. That will never be not funny to me.
(I so want to treat Heebie
to a cocktail and toast to his wonderful posts.)
Again, wonk-eyed donkey grin Cohen and his useless ADHD horror is there to fulfill that role. Maybe if I hear she and the show actually try to be a talk show and not just another thinly disguised infomercial for BRAVO's crap I'll check back in.
Now that's just fucking funny. You described Andy to a T. I'm not usually a fan of gender-fucking, but your reference to Andy as a "she" was so spot on. She's such a self-entitled sanctimonious little bitch, who doesn't give a shit about quality as long as it brings in the bucks.
But I love this show. It's the show I've been dreaming of. Someone who tears apart pop culture. It is the show that I thought Rosie should have done. I can't think of two celebs who have their pulse on reality TV more that Kathy and Rosie. I wish they had teamed up.
I love the opening monologue, the theme song, the set and the remotes. I can't remember the last show that gave me such pleasure. And I'm a hard nut to crack. There are only a few things that I would change: 1. The audience. I don't like Maggie and Tiffany in the front row; 2. I would change the seating so that it was more like a comedy club with round tables; 3. I would mix up the audience, why are the same people seated next to Maggie and Tiffany?, 4. Her guests. I like the idea that she's using unknowns, but they've got to offer something. Ryan was as dull as dishwater. And last week's male guest barely said two words. This could be a place where Kathy could use "her gays". I'm available. Call me.
