The day is here to celebrate the man! Happiest of Birthdays, Dear Peter Paige!!! It’s an honor and blessing to be your friend and to witness your impact on the world. You rocket past the norm in every way: your immense kindness, soaring intellect, razor-sharp wit, talent, humor, empathy, passion, playfulness, this list could go on and on. You’re beloved and with every great reason. You touch the lives of others profoundly, as you have mine. And I know I’m joined by the multitudes when I say, “Thank God you were born!!!” Love you, Peter! And Happy Fifty, my friend! SO much more to come!!!

Gay donors still keeping options open when it comes to endorsing gay presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg

Widely-respected political and entertainment industry reporter Ted Johnson has begun contributing to Politico with this column: Hollywood’s Top Gay Donors Have Mixed Feelings About Pete Buttigieg Politico

Ted interviewed Dustin Lance Black and others for the piece. Here his an excerpt:

This year, LGBTQ donors have helped seed the early stages of Buttigieg’s campaign, and the narrative has been one of nearly all-in support from the LGBTQ community. “As Buttigieg Builds His Campaign, Gay Donors Provide the Foundation,” ran one story in the Times. This week, the Victory Fund, which supports and promotes LGBTQ candidates, is expected to give Buttigieg its endorsement, its first in a presidential primary. But some well-known LGBTQ donors in Hollywood offer a picture that that’s more nuanced: Many in showbiz are still keeping their options open.

Presenting … “The Greatest Gyllenhaal of All”

This is just all kinds of fun!

During a special #LateLateLondon edition of Dogs in Sunglasses, host James Corden becomes distracted thinking of Jake Gyllenhaal, who had to cancel his appearance on the show. When James slides into an ode to the talented, kind and handsome actor, in the style of Whitney Houston’s Greatest Love of All, the greatest Gyllenhaal of all makes a very special appearance.

Thursday Morning Man: Jed Wyatt!

I think the whole The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise on ABC is a joke.

But I cannot deny the eye candy can be rather delicious.

This hunky dude is Jed Wyatt and I saw some scandalous stories saying he went on The Bachelorette even though he was four months into a new relationship!


Big deal. I’m far more interested in his Instagram account and his shirtless pics.

Happy 89th birthday to the legendary Gena Rowlands. Did a film with her a few years back and at every opportunity in between scenes I picked her brain about classic Hollywood. She is irreplaceable and I’m so happy to know her. One. Of. A. Kind.

Days of Our Lives: Will Horton hovers towards death

I’ve been trying to catch up on Days of Our Lives since it has been having some Will-centric episodes. Love seeing Chandler Massey in a meaty storyline and what could be better than a brain tumor, being close to death, a hospital bed marriage, your parents rushing in from foreign lands to say tearful goodbyes?

Here are some of the clips that I could find on social media. Start watching from the bottom up if you want to see it all unfold sequentially. Sorry, I posted them backwards.

Peter Paige’s birthday week with fellow “Queer as Folk” alums Robert Gant, Michelle Clunie and Gale Harold

I’m loving the photos popping up on social media the past few days of Peter Paige, the executive producer of the TV series Good Trouble and The Fosters.

Peter turns 50 this week and has been celebrating in recent days with his fellow cast members from the late, great Showtime series Queer as Folk on which he played Emmett for five season.

Robert Gant (Ben) posted the top photo of himself with Paige and Gale Harold (Brian): Tres amigos celebrating Pietro’s birthday week. All on the fifty train with me leading the pack, Peter Paige pulling into the birthday station TOMORROW, and Gale just three weeks out. Donning a little gold to honor the golden b-day. (Catch the amazing oxfords on Mr. Paige!) Picture proof that smoldering looks aren’t perfected until Five Oh. #SexyPeter #OneDayMore #HappyBirthdayWeek It’s that time of year!

Yesterday, Grant posted a photo of him and Paige with Michelle Clunie (Melanie): It’s Peter Paige birthday week! And not just any birthday but the big, beautiful Five Oh this Thursday. As you can see, he, Michelle Clunie, and I hit the photo booth this weekend to kick things off. Please join me in ramping up the celebration! We love you, P!!!

Anderson Cooper’s tribute to mom Gloria Vanderbilt: “My mom believed in love more than anyone”

View this post on Instagram

In the end, after all else is stripped away, there is only love. My mom believed in love more than anyone. It was her guide, her solace, it’s what drove her, and in her final moments, it is what surrounded her. “i love you, you know that,” she would say to me, and i did, i knew it from the moment i was born, and i will know it till the moment i die. It was her greatest gift to me.
