You're not?!?! I think you must be doing something terribly wrong!quote:Originally posted by grace0418:
[qb]The straight people represented on t.v. are rarely like me or anyone I know either. I don't have a perfect body, great hair, fabulous clothes and either A. a huge Victorian house or B. a quirky but huge Manhattan apartment...despite the fact that I'm supposedly a broke single mom or a poor suburban girl who just moved to the big city. I don't have breakfast every morning with my 5 equally fabulous friends before heading off to work (only to rejoin them 2 hours later to spend the rest of the day hanging out in a coffee shop). I don't hang out in hot tubs, throw drinks in anyone's face, or cast spells. I'm not the wacky fat neighbor, or a vampire slayer, or a tough but beautiful lady cop.[/qb]
Ha ha! A side note to that, I read that Bravo's advertising for the show was actually aimed at Women 18-49...I think that a lot of straight men could really benefit from a few of these tips, though I would not want to date a man that dressed better than me and had more styling products!quote:It shows straight men that they can open themselves up to things that many seem girly. It also shows them that those girly things, might actually help that get laid.
Are you talking about the proposal episode? Because I thought the same thing about her, he was so awesome in every way and she was... I dunno... kinda cold. But I decided to cut her some slack because she was probably nervous in front of the cameras (he was quieter when the cameras were first on him, then he got more comfortable), and she probably suspected what was going to happen so she was probably freaking out with anticipation (but trying to act casual and unaware).quote:Originally posted by awamutu:
[qb] i just saw this show for the first time last night and honestly, it's the first reality show i've thoroughly enjoyed all the way through!!! had me on the edge of my seat the whole time! wailed when a commercial came on! only prob i had with the show is that it moves a little fast speedy scene changes are hard to keep up with when exhausted, lol.
i LOVE how they literally run into each place they go into, like superheros, with the suits and glasses, lol!
about last night's episode...i'll try not to give anything away, for those who may not have seen it yet... i think the writer's or whoever got the initial summarization's of the guy being transformed and his girlfriend backwards. if anything, the girlfriend would be brought up to the "changing guy's" level of sophistication. i wasn't fond of her at all and think the new and improved guy could do better that is all~~
how many more shows are left before repeats?? [/qb]
Touche` indeed, my dear Kill Eye. Has she ever proclaimed her sexuality or is she remaining elusive? I'd say "not that it matters" but clearly it does to the GLBT community.quote:Originally posted by Kill Eye:
[qb] The Celluloid Closet
The Celluloid Closet was itself controversial among gays & lesbians because it was hosted by the closeted Lilly Tomlin. [/qb]
That little Miss Kyan is smarter than she looks.quote:"If gay people decide that they can't be flamboyant and funny because straight people aren't going to like it, then what's the point? I want to be gay on my own terms."
In NYC? Probably not. The bartender will probably just think you're a poser who watches too much QEFTSG.quote:Originally posted by jane:
