We Get On The A-List: New York!

Reality blogs are a buzz about the new phenomenon about to hit TV screens in the USA, and its been the talk of TV land since it was announced, but how can you get more than the cast list and whats going on for "The A-LIST: New York"???

Well in our case, it was to film an episode of it!

We were honoured to be asked to participate in the filming of an episode of the hot new reality show - produced by the same folks that did Real Housewives of Atlanta!

Our episode is with our good mate, and A-List photographer, Mike Ruiz and stylist to the stars Roberto Morelli.

Check out Rob and JP as we set up a very special photoshoot in New York City for our friend's charitable projects.

We are keeping quiet on the finer details - cos you will just have to watch to vend out whats goes on on the ALIST :)

Rumour has it that it will be coming to LOGO in the USA in early October.

Vampire Diaries Going Gay?

The Vampire Diaries producer and creator Kevin Williamson has expressed fervent interest in getting a gay character on the show. He knows he wants to do it. He knows he is going to do it. He just has no idea when, where and more importantly, who it is going to be. While on the press circuit this week for the show, he explained:

"I'm sitting in the wings waiting. I'm waiting. Which character can be gay? Which character won't? Where will it fit in? How can I get the gay character in? I don't want to sound like I'm a militant about it, like THERE MUST BE A GAY CHARACTER, even though I am. It's not just that, it's also diversity. I always feel like I don't have enough diversity on my show, and that is one of the things I'm very conscientious of, and not just gay characters. Any diversity. In anything, I want everyone represented. I want everybody on the show."

However, as much as he wants to include a gay character in his vampy world, he also doesn't want the character to have a whole "coming out" arc. As he puts it, the story would be to reminiscent of what he did on Dawson's Creek:

"I don't want to do a coming-out story. I did it on Dawson's Creek. As much as I'd like to do [a gay story], I want it to be fresh, and I'd want to do it in a new way. I don't know what that way is. We've seen it. We've seen it on countless shows. I've done my coming-out story, and I was very proud of it, and I don't know what it would be."

Who could the resident gay turn out to be? Can't be the Elena or her vampire brother beaus. He could always bring in a whole new character to fill the void. Lets hope so!

MTV Gets Tranny-tastic

Its one of MTV's best and brightest shows - that does not bastardise the reality genre -- it's America's Best Dance Crew (presented/produced by Idol judge Randy Jackson)... and this season - currently screening on MTV Australia, has one crew thats not your typical street gang or cheer wannabes!

And thanks the lord that this show exists... if i see one more episode of The Hills or Jersey shore i think i will jump off a ledge! MTV is music and entertainment - not tragedy and sad reality!!!  BRING BACK THE FUNK MTV!!!!

But i digress...  ABDC is a very cool show and the crew we are keen on is totally gay-riffic!

Take a swag of gay voguers, add in a firece and FABULOUS lass who was a bloke and you have some beyonce ripping, tiger tripping dance brilliance!

The crew - titled "Vogue Evolotion" is currently battling it out on our screens to take home the crown. (Unfortunately its an old season, but hey... its still well worth the watch)

Vogue Evolution consists of dancers,

Dashaun Williams
Devon Webster
Malechi Williams
Leiomy Maldonado
Jorel Rios

From the underground ballrooms of New York City the members of Vogue Evolution have set out to spread their unique dancing style into the mainstream. The crew comprises of some of the most respected dancers in New York's "Vogue" house/ballroom scene, which has been around since the Harlem Renaissance.

The guys, who were once competitors in the underground "ball" scene, decided to take ABDC by storm and create a performing group under the direction of Devon and Dashaun. What they came up with was the best of the best in their scene. But dancing isn't the only thing these guys do. They have a hand in educating their community on HIV/AIDS and the importance of getting tested.

The crew is a dance power house group. Each member has surpassed incredible feats at young ages, from numerous awards to appearances on television. More notably, Pony choreographed for Mariah Carey and Dashaun is even the creator of the "5,000" dance move.

Why does Vogue Evolution think they'll take the ABDC crown? "Our style has been replicated by so many people that do not execute the specific steps correctly," Dashuan says. "We as a crew selected the best from the scene to show the mainstream where it's from."

Make sure you check them out - they are absolutely AMMMMAZZZING!

We may only be just getting the first season of RuPaul's first reality competition - but its been glamming up television in the USA for two seasons now… even before the show was know in Oz, gays have been downloading it and chatting about the fabulous contestants, with even one of the ladies, Ongina, rocking up as the special guest to the Homesexual circuit Party in Sydney recently…

Foxtel to Introduce 3D TV in 2011

Foxtel CEO Kim Williams said that the company’s existing high definition set top boxes were 3D ready and test broadcasts had been conducted in Australia.

“Foxtel’s HD set top units have already carried 3D signals in our premises with terrific picture clarity”, Mr Williams said.

Foxtel would continue to run trials on 3D transmissions over the next year, he said.

“I expect Foxtel will bring its first test broadcasts in 2011.”

NYE TV Highlights

This New Years Eve on Aussie TV may be a little confusing for the average punter, so we thought we would give you the low down of what is for real and what to watch and when...

For the past few years, Channel 10 has done the live broadcast of the fireworks in Sydney bookmarked by live entertainment like Natalie Bassingthwaighte, TV Rock Jessica Mauboy etc… but don't tune in thinking you will be getting the fireworks this year. The network has said it will be playing fireworks, but they will be highlights of LAST YEARS, with comedy from Shaun Micallef… in my opinion this is a tad reckless from the network to even show any fireworks, as it could make people miss the real ones… will these be on at 9 and 12 or other times? Was this also on purpose to confuse people or just try and steal marketshare? Or a jab and a quick laugh?

If your looking for the real fireworks, then tune in to Channel 9 - but don't expect anything great from the coverage… in between the actual fireworks displays, Richard Wilkins and MTV USA cast off - turned local weather girl, Lynsday Rodrigues will be hosting an "ARIA Chart
Show" special - which is just plain ass video clips for hours on end…. yawn!

If you want to avoid the fireworks entirely, then tune in to Channel 7, where they will be showing Lord Of The Rings or the ABC showing a Human Nature concert with the Sydney symphony orchestra.

Either way - whatever your New Years Eve viewing - have fun and we wish you a fantastic New Year!

Glee

Like anyone who has stumbled across the GLEE phenomenon, I am consistently surprised episode after episode of just how brilliant this show is. Stereotypes, check… kick ass sense of humour, check… it all makes for a show that on one hand can be watched in a light hearted throw away sense, or if you pay attention there is another whole level of humour, innuendo and brilliance - so the thing i love about it is that its like you get two shows for the price of one - and considering its only paid for by having to put up with god awful Australian TV advertising (who care if the dog ordered foxtel??? If my dog was spoken too like that it would rip my head off and eat it like a schmako.)

But I digress. Glee is not just a teen or gay show - it crosses all boundaries, and exudes a style of fabulous that even the most knuckledheaded boo bogan can love.

I for one am tempted to break several international laws and download the whole lot… or better still, I will petition channel 10 and get them to play marathons of the show every weekend, so after a night out n the town, you have a reason to laugh.

If you have not jumped on the bandwagon yet - then do so immediately, it is THE hit of the decade!
