The Ten Things I Learned From Watching The A-List
Oct 05, 2010 - by Daily Mister
First and foremost thanks to everyone who put up with my live tweeting of the premiere of The A-List New York. Instead of a regular recap I decided to make a top ten list of lessons that I learned.
1. Sleeping with someone famous makes automatically you famous.
Not only is reality show whore Reichen Lehmkuhl who's biggest claim to fame was basically kicking Lance Bass out of the closet but apparently Marc Jacobs ex Austin considers herself a celebrity worthy of being a main character in a reality show.
2. When in doubt, take your shirt off.
Last night's premiere was not short on gratuitous nudity. I'm pretty sure that every 3-4 minutes I was looking at someone's naked torso. (Not that anyone minded.)
3. You don't need to sing to be a lead in a musical.
Reichen shows every young performer that you don't need to be good at singing, dancing or even acting to star in an Off Broadway production.
4. If you six pack isn't ripped you must be fat.
Austin is a "model" who's looking forward to make it big again. (Wait did he make it big before?) Everyone on the show thinks he's giving Precious a run for her money every though you can definitely see what appears to be a decent six pack on him.
5. Mike Ruiz doesn't think we're important.
Mike Ruiz takes Reichen's boy toy Rodiney to the Particia Field after party for Sex And The City 2 screening and iit just so happens the the Fashion Indie crew and I were also at the party. Unfortunately we were not "A-List" enough to grab any screen time. (Bastards!)
6. If you're gay in NYC then you must work in fashion.
Well let's just say that I didn't need to watch the show to know this but this show makes it seems as if all homos do in the city revolves around the fashion world. This isn't true at all we are also cops, soldiers, construction workers, cowboys, Native Americans, and bikers. (Wait what?)
7. Minorities are not allowed on the A-List
Besides mini-characters such as the agent, personal trainer, and a sugar daddy this show is lacking some serious color. I thought gays came in all colors of the rainbow.
8. Every gay man is a Jack Jill of all trades
Gays are very complex individuals which means that the roles they play are plentiful. Every good mo should have at least 5 slashes in his title to make him important. For example I am a Editor/Stylist/Actor/Dancer/Socialite/On Air Personality.
9. "Delicious" is the code word.
Ryan & T.J e nlightened all our world by adding another word into gay lexicon. Delicious (Adj.) - Used to describe something that is awful but concealing your true mean. EX: Reichen's singing is delicious.
10. Logo finally has a hit on it's hands.
Logo has been around for longer than most people think and it's most popular show to date has been RuPaul's Drag Race besides the Buffy the Vampire Slayer reruns. Gays are rejoicing because they have something salacious to watch after viewing Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta
