WATCH: Stephen Colbert to Trump: “If someone is leaving this country, it should be you!”

On Trump’s racist rant. “Everything in your life has been handed to you on a silver platter, and yet, you––every other word out of your mouth is a tantrum that would get a toddler dragged out of a ball pit! You complain about everything! You don’t like Bette Midler! Who doesn’t like Bette Midler?!… If someone is leaving this country, it should be you! And if you’re looking for a new home, might I suggest that you go to hell!”

Wednesday Morning Man: Oliver Jackson-Cohen!

I present to you an especially handsome man named Oliver Jackson-Cohen.

Oliver is a 32-year-old English actor and model who played Jonathan Harker, a journalist, in NBC’s television series Dracula and also starred in the TV series Emerald City for NBC.

His first big break was landing a role in the television series Hollyoaks when he was 15, and he later appeared in the ITV series The Time of Your Life in 2007.

He has since appeared in the films Life and Death at 17 starring Jennifer Lawrence and Richard Gere, Going the Distance starring Drew Barrymore and Justin Long, and Faster opposite Dwayne Johnson.

In 2011, he starred as Prince William in a series of Funny or Die shorts with Allison Williams as newlywed Kate Middleton.

RuPaul, Randy Rainbow, “Pose” and all else that’s queer about this year’s Emmy nominations

For 14 years now, I’ve been singling out what’s LGBT about whatever award nominations have just been announced.

Some years it’s been meager. But not this year with the Emmys!

Just a quick glance down the list and I see out performers Billy Porter, Randy Rainbow, RuPaul, Ellen DeGeneres, Kate McKinnon, Laverne Cox, Jane Lynch, Billy Eichner, Cherry Jones, Sophie Turner, and Ryan O’Connell all getting nods.

RuPaul’s Drag Race got an astonishing 9 nominations and there are several LGBT portrayals but since I’m on vacation and the beach beckons, I’ll send you to a full list over at

Valerie Harper’s husband launches GoFundMe account to help with cancer-related expenses

Back in 2013, television icon Valerie Harper was given as little as three months to live.

But thankfully, the woman who played Rhoda Morgenstern on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda and Valerie Hogan on Valerie is still with us.

But we have discovered that as she approaches her 80th birthday, she needs our help.

A GoFundMe page states:

In 2009, she was diagnosed with lung cancer and in March 2013, revealed she was diagnosed with leptomeningeal carcinomatosis — a condition that occurs when cancer cells spread into the fluid-filled membrane surrounding the brain, known as the meninges. Valerie has defied all odds and continued working and enjoying each day years beyond what doctors had expected. Her husband, Tony Cacciotti, has been by her side giving her support and hope every step of the way.

Valerie has been grateful over the years for the medical breakthroughs along this difficult journey but insurance doesn’t cover everything. There are unrelenting medical costs on a continuous basis. Valerie is currently taking a multitude of medications and chemotherapy drugs as well as going through extreme physical and painful challenges now with around the clock, 24/7 care immediately needed which is not covered by insurance. This is just part of the daily cost that is without a doubt a financial burden that could never be met alone. This GoFundMe initiative from Tony, is to ensure she receives the best care possible.

I checked the page yesterday and it had just over $6,000 raised. Today, it’s jumped to more than $18,000.

Novak Djokovic edges Roger Federer in a thrilling – and heartbreaking – five-set Wimbledon final

We Roger Federer fans are greedy. He may have a record 8 Wimbledon titles but we desperately wanted him to have nine.

Today he came within one point.

I cannot explain the roller coaster of emotions today while watching his five-set final against Novak Djokovic which ended with a win for the Serbian star 7–6(7–5), 1–6, 7–6(7–4), 4–6, 13–12(7–3).

I was watching with five guys in Provincetown and three women walking by heard us screaming and asked the score. We invited them to watch with us and they did!

As the fifth set wore on, I got so tense that I started drinking the only booze we had in the house: beer. It had been left by the people who rented the house the previous week. I never drink beer but by the end of the match, I’d had three!

As a rabid Fed fan, I’m devastated for him but I have so much respect for how hard Novak competed. These were two warriors and only one could come out the winner.

Federer turns 38 next month and already speaks of next year. Meanwhile, Djokovic now has 16 grand slam titles – four behind Federer and two behind Rafael Nadal.

Who will end up the greatest of them all?


Morning Man Classic: Bjorn Borg!

Since the men’s Wimbledon final is this morning, it’s as good a time as any to again feature Bjorn Borg, the gorgeous guy who played in six of those finals in his career and won five of them – including an all-time classic in 1980 against John McEnroe.

Borg, now 63, has become quite the Swedish silver fox!

The tennis legend, once ranked number one in the world over archrivals McEnroe and Jimmy Connors, burst onto the scene in 1973 when he made the quarterfinals of Wimbledon and became a major teen idol.

He went on to win a record five consecutive Wimbledon singles titles (an all-time record he holds with Roger Federer and six overall French Open singles titles. Borg is considered to be one of the greatest tennis players of all time.

He is the only player in the open era to win both Wimbledon and the French Open in the same year more than twice, winning both for three consecutive years.

Bjorn broke a lot of hearts when he walked away from the game in 1981. He was just 25. But he’s stayed busy playing seniors events and with various business interests including a line of men’s underwear several years back. It featured an ad campaign for his new underwear line “Love For All” with an amazing new ad featuring two male priests getting married.

Happy 51st birthday to Robert Gant!

This is my favorite picture of Robert Gant – for obvious reasons – so I’ve decided to feature it again today on his birthday.

I’ve loved him ever since he appeared as one of Pheobe’s boyfriend’s on Friends then he was the high school principal on Popular. But best of all, there was his wonderful run on Queer as Folk as professor Ben Bruckner.

He turns 51 today and is proof that the notion that openly gay actors can convincingly play straight roles or romantic leads.

He has managed to continue to be cast in both gay (Save Me) and straight roles (Special Delivery) and in comedies (Mike & Molly, Hot in Cleveland) and dramas (Personal Affairs, Bones, Nip/Tuck).

His most recent credits include recurring roles on 13 Reasons Why, The Fosters, and Supergirl. Last year he also made the Hallmark movie Wedding of Dreams opposite Debbie Gibson.

Happy birthday to this wonderfully appealing – and hunky – actor!
