I am a loyal Bravo watcher. I am a reality television connoisseur and devour my shows in bulk whenever my schedule permits. I am one of your people, which is why I am sad to write this letter to you.
I know, too well, the criticism of the unscripted genre, having been a small part of it.

Today, I write on behalf of LGBTQ allyship.
I’m getting tired of the blatant homophobia being masked as silly gossip or a humorous crutch in some of the franchises, most recently, 'Vanderpump Rules' and the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta.'
Here’s the deal: I’m getting tired (really tired) of the blatant homophobia being masked as silly gossip or a Continue reading "An Open Letter To Andy Cohen"

Jaden, who is from Portland, Oregon (and whose last name was withheld by his mother), was interviewed on Feb. 3 by KGW reporter Drew Carney alongside his cousin at Portland International Airport to talk about the winter storm that hit the city ahead of their trip to Disney World. Jaden was immediately put off that Carney wasn’t the anchor he was accustomed to watching regularly on TV with his grandmother, and promptly walked away from the interview.
