Boys 2 Men

Looks like another Chiller thriller out in Jersey. Read HERE.

Bottom Gun

In what can only be described as an eye-raising decision, Tim Tebow went as Tom Cruise's most famous character -- Maverick from "Top Gun" -- for Halloween this year. I got you, boo.

Like father, like son. Mr. Roper never could get it straight, either.

Congrats to my pal Jason Scarlatti, whose 2(x)ist shop opened today at Macy's in Herald Square!

Song of the Day: '50 Ways to Leave Your Lover' by Paul Simon

Had such a fun time at John Cameron Mitchell's Mattachine party at Julius' last night. John and Fred Schneider of the B-52s co-DJ-ed -- to great effect with Paul Simon ("50 Ways"), Andy Gibb ("I Just Want to Be Your Everything"), Melissa Manchester ("You Should Hear How She Talks About You"), INXS ("Don't Change") and every other song you wish a bar would play but they don't -- but it was the delightful crowd that made it so great, like Jorge Clar (above), who divides his time between being an editor, BLOGGER and make-it-up-as-you-go-along nutritionist to clients such as Scooter LaForge. What a night!

BREAKING: Eric Decker Still Incredibly Sexy

 'You think he really cares what y’all think haters?, He’s laughing his ass alllll the way home ... Life is pretty good here, can’t complain,' the country singer tweeted. 

 ... wife still annoying as hell.


Exiting the Ramada Inn in West Hollywood on Halloween in 1991 with my ex-boyfriend Derek, who had come to "visit" me and got us a room. That's about all of my M.D. costume I could bring myself to wear, although we did play doctor all weekend. Get the full story HERE.

Fun Couple: Kristy McNichol and Terry Richardson

If Buddy wasn't a lesbian before, she definitely is now. More HERE.

Thursday Ad Watch

There's not really much I can say about THIS.

WATCH: Madonna Tries Her Hand at Standup

And encounters a role-rearching Winona Ryder and coffee-drinking Cher along the way.

Apple CEO Tim Cook: 'I'm Proud to Be Gay'

Good for him -- and better late than never. Read HERE.

And as great as this is, don't forget that in 32 states your boss can still legally fire YOU for being gay or transgender.

From HERE.

Too Dumb

   Although I appreciate what they've done with the title here, something tells me 90 percent of Americans wouldn't even get it.

And speaking of which, what is going on with Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis?

I Like It 'Well Done'

Two more hilarious sketch comedy bits from Clyde McFly, aka Matt Noonan and Mike Trehy.

Song of the Day: 'I Was Made for Lovin' You' by Kiss

Gene Simmons is so repugnant that I often forget that Kiss recorded a few really good songs, like this "disco rock" classic from 1979.
