Today In TV Scandals: A 'Big Brother' Contestant's Homophobic 'Harry Potter' Rant, Tattoos & a '16 and Pregnant' Arrest

by Jean Bentley, posted Jul 13th 2011 2:45PM
Jeff, Big BrotherJ.K. Rowling's revelation wizened wizard/Harry Potter mentor Albus Dumbledore was actually gay rocked the 'Harry Potter' fandom when she announced the news ... four years ago.

So when 'Big Brother' contestant Jeff found out yesterday that the Hogwarts headmaster was gay, his shocked, homophobic reaction was surprising. Entertainment Weekly reports that the houseguest noted Dumbledore "doesn't have any gay tendencies" before exclaiming, "He's in school with little kids; you don't want to make that guy gay."

Jeff further dug himself into that giant crater of his by clarifying, "I don't think it's the right thing to have a kids' book, and to have the headmaster that's locked away in this magical land, to be gay. That isn't the right kind of writing to do." Oy.

According to Reality Blurred, this isn't Jeff's first time exhibiting homophobic behavior. During his first 'Big Brother' season, he used gay slurs when talking about some of his housemates.

Kissing a Girl on 'Rizzoli & Isles' - Is Angie Harmon's Character a Secret Lesbian? (VIDEO)

Kissing a Girl on 'Rizzoli & Isles' - Is Angie Harmon's Character a Secret Lesbian?There have already been some rumors that 'Rizzoli & Isles' is secretly a slightly, well, "lesbian" kind of show. ... And frankly, we're all in favor of that. But the cop drama seems to want to tease us with the question of whether its main characters are gay or not. Maybe the latest episode will give us some answers?

[Spoiler alert.]

On tonight's show (Mon., 10PM ET on TNT), Jane Rizzoli has to go undercover to solve a murder. Well, that's pretty standard stuff for this series. But Jane (played by Angie Harmon) has to infiltrate a lesbian bar in order to catch the killer. And -- as if that wasn't enough already -- then she starts seducing the sexy female barmaid.

At this point, the soundtrack to the show becomes sort of "porn-y," for lack of a better word. "You know," Jane says to the bartender, "you said if I was ever feeling ... adventurous." Next, the barmaid leans in for a kiss. Is this the big 'Rizzoli & Isles' reveal that we've been waiting for?

'Chelsea Lately' Panel Discusses Ricky Martin Coming Out (VIDEO)

Chelsea Lately, Ricky Martin Comes OutIs it news that Ricky Martin is gay? Guess so, since he just officially announced it, but let's face it: Is there anyone who thought he wasn't gay?

Chelsea Handler and her panel on 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!) had some fun with the news. Handler's actually a big proponent of gays; she's got her staff homosexual extraordinaire Guy Branum, after all.

But she does have a point about Martin having to change the name of his hit song to "He Bangs."

Mike's Boyfriend Comes Out to His Family on 'The Real World' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 25th 2010 3:12AM
The Real World, Mike's Boyfriend Comes Out'The Real World' (10PM ET on MTV) lived up to its name on last night's episode, when Mike's boyfriend came out to his family. They weren't happy, and his mom even talked about having to "sell the ranch'" (what century is this again?).

But Mike had just the right words: "What you need to show her is that you're still the same person that you've always been, but the person that you choose to be with and to love is the person that makes you happy, not the person that society is telling you to be with."

That's probably too long for a bumper sticker, but can somebody please put that on a poster or coffee mug or something?

Adam Lambert's Not-So-Racy Performance on 'The Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 3rd 2010 4:56AM
Adam Lambert on The Tonight ShowNever let it be said that all of Adam Lambert's performances are sex-filled romps. While not exactly tame, his performance on 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) was noticeably less provocative than some previous performances.

Still, sporting dark eye shadow and a frou-frou 'do, he still managed to be the quintessential Adam Lambert. Does he seem tired out, though?

'Big Bang' Bazinga! Could Sheldon Be Gay?

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 10th 2010 9:00AM
big_bang_theory_jim_parsonsAs his 'Star Trek' hero Mr. Spock might say, this is 'fascinating.' When Chuck Lorre was asked to define Sheldon Cooper's sexual orientation on 'The Big Bang Theory,' his answer wasn't gay. It wasn't straight. Not even asexual or nonsexual or unsexual. Lorre settled on the term 'other,' for Sheldon.

Lorre told Michael Ausiello in Entertainment Weekly that Sheldon's focus is not on the physical; it's on physics. And when Ausiello asked 'Big Bang Theory' star Jim Parsons what he thought, Parsons said that the object of Sheldon's affection would be the Nobel Prize, not another human being. Hearing the word that Dr. Sheldon Cooper has been awarded the Nobel Prize in theoretical physics would be Sheldon's turn on. "That's the warm embrace that he longs for," said Jim.

5 Clues From 'Family Ties' That Meredith Baxter Birney Was Gay All Along

by Ryan McKee, posted Dec 2nd 2009 6:51PM
Sitcom mother Meredith Baxter is enjoying the most attention she's had in two decades. After reports emerged that Alex P. Keaton's mom enjoys gay cruises, Baxter decided to pull a 'DeGeneres' this morning on 'Today.'

While some '80s TV fans were shocked, vigilant 80-philes already saw it coming. Just like there were hints towards Ellen's sexuality in her sitcom before she came out in 'The Puppy Episode,' there were plenty of signals in 'Family Ties' about Baxter through her character Elyse Keaton. We present five of them -- with tongues planted firmly in cheek, of course.

Kelsey Grammer's going Broadway in La Cage Aux Folles

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 30th 2009 7:02PM
kelsey_grammer_headWell, what do you do when your last two TV series flamed out, leaving you scratching your head and wondering why the public isn't getting you like they did before? If you're Kelsey Grammer, you head to Broadway. With the ABC sitcom Hank firmly in his rear-view mirror, Grammer will star on Broadway in a revival of La Cage aux Folles.

Could Kelsey be taking advice from David Hyde Pierce, his brother Niles on Frasier? Since that series ended, David's had two hit shows on the Gay White Way, Spamalot and Curtains. The latter resulted in David winning a Tony award.

I'd like to think that Grammer's taking somebody's sage advice. La Cage is a no-brainer.

Chazz Palminteri to play golf... on Modern Family

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 26th 2009 3:03PM
chazz_palminteri_head_shouldersOne of my favorite character actors will be guesting on an upcoming episode of Modern Family, Chazz Palminteri. And for a change of pace, Chazz will not be toting a gun. Instead he'll be swinging a golf club, and unless the sitcom takes a radically wicked turn, I don't think Chazz will be taking swings at Ed O'Neill's head.

On the other hand, things can get pretty intense on the links. In the episode, Chazz is golfing with Ed's character, Jay, and somehow the relationship between Cameron and Mitchell comes into play and there's a big gay understanding... or is that a misunderstanding?

Mr. Sub dad has a big surprise for his family

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 24th 2009 3:25PM
I'm not familiar with the Canadian sub shop chain Mr. Sub, but their new commercial is rather interesting. It features a husband and wife who have several children, and one night at dinner the husband has a big announcement to make.

Sure, it's a shocking announcement, but this guy is all about family values. I mean, the entire family is at the dinner table at the same time. You don't see that much nowadays.

Glee: Preggers

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 23rd 2009 10:02PM
Fox_Glee_Kurt_Hummel(S01E04) Lies, lies and damn lies. There are plenty of them on Glee in between the musical numbers, but in a truly fine episode like this one, at least one major truth emerges and that's what you take away from the show. Still, it's that darn song I'm humming and one more reason Glee keeps me coming back.

By the way, before we go on, how great is it that Glee has been renewed for a full season? Way to go, Fox! Yes, maybe it was a given that this show would be given a chance, but there are no sure things, and I think the network deserves a thumbs up when they take a chance. Anyway, more on tonight's show and all the plot developments after the jump.

The Newlywed Game to host its first ever gay couple

by Brad Trechak, posted Sep 17th 2009 10:01AM
Brad Altman and George TakeiNot only is The Newlywed Game hosting its first ever gay couple. It's hosting its first ever gay celebrity couple. At least, one of them is a pretty well-known celebrity. George "Mr. Sulu" Takei and his partner Brad Altman will be appearing on the program. Although they've been together for over 20 years, they were only legally married last year (before all that Proposition 8 hoopla nullified gay marriage in California).

In case nobody remembers the rules to game: each partner is given a question about the relationship without the other partner present. If each member of the couple give the same answer, they win points. Considering that they've been together for 20 years, somebody is going to be pretty pissed off if one or the other gives a different answer to the same question. Hopefully it won't lead to a divorce. The most interesting answers in the game will come from any question about "making whoopee".

'The Newlywed Game' Goes Gay

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Sep 17th 2009 9:23AM
Even as states and jurisdictions made gay and lesbian marriages legal, 'The Newlywed Game' has played it straight - until now.

The long-running game show, now on the GSN cable network, said Wednesday it will feature its first gay couple this season on a celebrity edition. George Takei, who played Mr. Sulu on 'Star Trek,' will appear with his partner, Brad Altman.

They just celebrated their first anniversary after being married in Los Angeles last September, but they're nothing like the giggly young couples the game is known for. Takei and Altman have been together for 22 years.

Can Katherine Moennig ever shake Shane?

by Annie Wu, posted Aug 13th 2009 11:32AM
Katherine MoennigThrough all of The L Word's ridiculous six seasons, Kate Moennig played Shane, the character that put butterflies in the tummies of men and women alike, gay, straight or otherwise. Hey. No use in deny it. We all felt it.

And watching this behind-the-scenes video of Three Rivers, it just seems like Shane decided to clean up her womanizing act and throw on some scrubs. There was a similar effect when Moennig played a small part in Art School Confidential. Is Moennig going to be able to convince viewers that Shane is in her past?

The Closer: Walking Back the Cat

After an intense, heavy-duty The Closer last week, it was probably a wise move to roll out a lighter episode. That's what this show was, a change of pace with some insight into the delicate dance that makes Fritz and Brenda's relationship work.

The decision to not work together since they're not married was news to me. But Fritz had an ulterior motive in getting Major Crimes into the case of missing person Austin Blair. The motive was not just to distract Brenda Leigh from her grief of losing Kitty, but at first that seemed to be his intent.
