Meet the Cast of (Gay) 'Finding Prince Charming'

Even with all that eye candy, I can't bring myself to sit through "The Bachelorette" -- even when my gay friend was on it pretending to be straight! And "Boy Meets Boy" was pretty excruciating. But nonetheless, the 13 men vying for the attention of TV's latest gay bachelor have been revealed ... and TMZ reports that there's a LOT of scruff on those faces. The site obtained pics of the guys Robert Sepulveda Jr. will have to choose from ... and they have very varied backgrounds. Their day gigs include real estate agents, stylists, publicists and even a spiritual practitioner. (At least one of them wasn't stereotypical!) Lance Bass will host "Finding Prince Charming," which premieres next month on Logo.

UPDATE: TMZ has pulled its link with bios on all the guys. Has the drama already begun?

My eye's on Chad ...

Chad (New York, NY) has worn many hats in his career, but now is focused on real estate making him a really interesting guy. He currently lives in NYC so he can be close to Mom since he is an only child. His interests include geography, culture & animals.

UPDATE 2: They have moved it to their Too Fab outlet HERE.

My First 'Cock a Doodle Doo'

I just found a photo of the toy dishes I got for Christmas in the early '70s when we lived on Tawas in Madison Heights. (I had the matching toaster, too.) It's hard to fathom how I could possibly remember what they looked like as I'm nearly certain it was the first Christmas after Dad left, which would make it nearly 44 years ago, 1972. I love that my mom placed no boundaries or gender stereotypes on me when I was a little boy -- I had as many GI Joes and Big Jims as I did Tuesday Taylor and Jody dolls -- and that the Internet was invented so I could relive moments like this. (I've been pretty much reduced to tears thinking about that time.)

Howard Johnson's Maine Restaurant to Close, Leaving Just One More

With my siblings Terence and Jennifer in 2001

Wow, this hurts. The closing of one of the last two Howard Johnson restaurants in a couple of weeks will mark the end of its fried clam strips, macaroni and cheese, ice cream and other menu staples that were one of my favorite memories of childhood road trips. (The blue and orange color scheme was the coolest thing we'd ever seen, so we stole trays, ice buckets, soaps and everything else we could get our hands on because we loved the place so much!) Once the Bangor, Maine, location closes Sept. 6, the one in Lake George, N.Y., will be the last one standing. (Time for a road trip?) We lost the Times Square locale in the early aughts, but not before I was famously told by a waiter there that I was a dead ringer for that Hollywood star ... Denis Leary.

Our parents bought us these cool little suitcases, which we used for change purses ...

Terence had one of the trucks ...

After my first day of work in New York City in 1998, my colleagues took me for drinks at the Paramount Hotel and then a sober-up meal at the Howard Johnson's down the corner. The macaroni and cheese burned the roof of my mouth, but it felt like a kiss.

"Mad Men" filmed a rather pivotal episode about stopping at the Plattsburgh, N.Y., location..

Does it get any better than this? Debbie Harry even loved it ...

Song of the Day: 'How About Hero' by the Kelley Deal 6000

This one's not for everyone. But for all you alt-rock fans, especially those who liked the Pixies and the Breeders, I wanted to mention that I was revisiting Kelley Deal's post-rehab project and was thoroughly enjoying it. I actually saw the Kelley Deal 6000 perform back in the day with my friend Kandy at the Black Cat in Washington, D.C., but don't remember a lot about the music. What I vividly remember is that Kandy and I got there early to get a drink and noticed Kelley and some guys hanging out -- and that there were only about 10 other people in the joint. Eventually show time came and Kelley and the band came over and hung out with everybody. We asked them about their tour bus out front -- "the Shasta" -- before we all finally agreed that the show must go on, despite the rather huge concert space being virtually empty! KD6000 had just released "Go to the Sugar Altar," which is where this comes from, but the "Boom Boom Boom" follow-up has its charms too, so I recommend them both.

Kandy's take:
