Atlanta At Night

Happy SUNDAY everyone! It was a GR-EAT day here in Atlanta and I hope it was pleasant wherever you are.

The photo above is of Atlanta (at night, of course). Both the building I live in now and the building I used to live in are included in this photo (that I had to shrink to fit on the blog). (I am running out of "HOT Guys" so I thought I would post a photo of Atlanta...)

Here is an almost 20 year old Tracy Chapman song that takes me back to the time and place I first heard it (songs have a way of doing that, don't they?). The place was Chicago, specifically Belmont and Halsted ("Boys Town"), driving around on a summer night in the convertible of the person I was dating. I had hair, he was hot, Tracy's first CD, which included this song AND the song "Fast Car" played on the car stereo. It was perfect. I heard this song again last week for the first time in years and thought I would post it here. I hope YOU like this song as much as "we" do. Tracy has one of those "haunting" voices (like Stevie's) that I like a lot. (The violin in this song is nice too.)

Have a GR-EAT week everyone!

Come Clean

It's, of course, SATURDAY! (The BEST day of the week, I think.)

Wut up bitches? Nothin' new here to report. It's a super nice day in the A-T-L. The skies are blue and the current temperature is 83 degrees (farenheit) with the winds coming from the east at 8 mph.

"We" came across these pictures and thought we would post them.

Hillary Duff turned 20 yesterday! (I don't care if she has a horse head (and teeth), I think she's cute.) Please enjoy my FAVORITE Hillary Duff video (and song), "Come Clean." (It's in my iPod).

That's it for today. Have GR-EAR Saturday night everyone!

Friday's HOT Guy...

Today's HOT Guy is A&F model and current "Dancing With The Stars" contestant, Albert Reed. "We" meant to feature him here previously (seriously) but never got around to it. Albert is also known for having dated Paris Hilton.

"We" don't know what is going on in Hollywood today and really don't care. (Check out or Perez's blog - he seems to have the scoop on everything, right?)

Does anyone know anything about HTML programming? "We" want a new banner for the blog but do not know how to create it. If you do, let us know! (Frankly, we're tired of the current format and want to "shake it up.") Also, we're ready to change the links here on the blog (you know, the ones you see to the right). If you have a cause you want to feature here, let "us" know that too.

That's IT for today. I hope you all (even you strangers) have a GR-EAT weekend.

Please enjoy this video. "Kev" likes Pink a lot, don't you?

Welcome back to the hood! What's up everyone? "We" hope you are doing f-i-n-e, fine.

First we want to say, "WELCOME BACK" to our "sistah" who was cruising in the Caribbean Sea.

Our friend June is now in Croatia (and we, as well as her cat, miss her tons). (Boy does she get a lot of mail, BTW.) (Oh, her next door neighbor, whom we'll call "Shady," because it rhymes with her real name, is the President of the Georgia Chapter of the Christian Coalition, or something like that... She has been interviewed on the news and written about in the local papers for her opposition to gay marriage. She is also a staunch Republican, doesn't think you (we) should be able to buy alcohol on Sunday, so she comes in and takes June's (a real hypocrite if you ask me), so I am doing my best to leave copies of The Advocate, David, Unzipped and Blue Boy around, and more importantly, under the wine bottles, in hopes that she will see them. I also have an "I LOVE Hillary" sticker ready to be placed on Shady's bumper.) I see her in passing each day and I wave (gayly) and say, "Mornin' Shady! Chardonnay?"

Deborah has a new BF. "We" trust she will keep us posted as "things" progress.

"Kev" is counting the days (literally) until he, "Princess" and "Dave" will be in Row A for Stevie Nicks' show in Rosemont, Illinois on October 19th (not to forget Kathy Griffin at the Chicago Theater on October 20th). Next to Jason, it's about all I think about.

What else, what else? I can't think of nothin'.

Here is a YouTube clip my Grandmother sent that I enjoyed (and hope you enjoy as well).

Okay, we'll call it a day. Come back soon!

A Note From Leo...

Hey bitches - "Kev" doesn't feel like writing anything tonight. Please enjoy this essay from Leonardo DiCaprio.

Growing up as a young boy in the 70's and early 80's in Los Angeles, I often had to stay inside during the infamous and frequent summer 'smog alerts'. I also vividly remember the news of the energy crisis on TV. While our air is cleaner in LA now, asthma rates are still on the rise, and our dependence on oil - in LA, and across the United States -- has grown dramatically, as has the impact of global warming from human-generated greenhouse gas-emissions.

The alarm bells are ringing across the globe (e.g., the melting Arctic, parts of Antarctica breaking off, the disappearing glacier on top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, etc.). To the 50% of us that are urban dwellers, cities may seem immune from these far away calamities, but we are not.

As the damages from severe storms are on the rise, we often see the image of valuable waterfront property being lost to beach erosion and rising sea levels. However, the most severe impact from flooding and elevated threats to public health from global climate change will be to our cities - in particular our cities' poorest residents.

Slum dwellers in Mexico City have to resort to putting all their furniture on stilts whenever floodwaters cascade down the streets. In London, up to a million tons of raw sewage was pumped into the Thames recently, as the aged sewer system was overcome by torrential rain. Outbreaks of West Nile Virus are occurring across the United States. Most dramatically of all, cities like New Orleans and Miami, or even parts of NY and LA, could end up routinely flooded if rising temperatures lead to increased melting ice and substantial sea-level rise.

The sprawling growth of cities and our insatiable consumption drives an increase in energy use to power all our 'stuff', more cars for longer commutes, and, sadly, an ever growing level of greenhouse gas emissions.

There are signs of hope, and cities are leading the way. Mexico City, New York, Berlin, London, Toronto, Melbourne, Portland, and many others are instituting action plans to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Los Angeles, my hometown, recently passed a policy to increase production of renewable energy - from sources like solar and wind - to 20% of total production. Local agencies in LA made commitments to over $11 billion in new, green construction, dramatically reducing the energy needs of new and retrofitted buildings.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is not just about protecting the environment: smart growth slows sprawl and keeps people closer to work; improved public transportation reduces the daily commute; energy efficient housing means lower bills to pay for low-income families; low emission vehicles cut pollution on the streets; passing green building and energy policies creates high wage, clean jobs; and purchasing solar power is often cheaper than buying candles or kerosene for the "energy-poor" in cities and towns in the developing world.

While the US federal government fails to act to curb global warming, cities and states are leading the way. However, mayors and city councils around the globe must go further, forging new alliances with nonprofits, businesses, and ordinary citizens to steadily reduce our energy use and our greenhouse gas emissions. I urge individuals around the world to stand up, and ask local leaders, if they haven't already, to pledge to purchase cleaner cars, build green facilities, and buy green power like wind or solar energy. Our actions may determine if we become a casualty in the war for a habitable planet for generations to come.

Hey ho's! (I have run out of greetings people...)

Sometimes I get an email that "touches" me. This one, received yesterday, made me smile...

Hi Kevin,

This morning I was cleaning the kitchen and Amanda was in the other room playing. Just then, Stevie Nicks' "Silver Springs" came on the radio... Amanda got very quiet. I peaked in, and she was slow-dancing with her doll. I thought that was pretty cute, and went back to my work. A minute later, I peaked in again, and she was STILL dancing!! By the end of the song, she was "rocking out" to the music... It looked like she was trying to head bang.

I thought you would appreciate a good story like that on a Monday morning. We may have a budding fan here.. If so, perhaps you can take her to her first concert when she's of "concert-going age." ;)

Have a great day! And a great week!


(Amanda is the CUTEST too, so I loved this email.)

Carrie, whom we call "Princess I" (you may recall) was "Kev's" piano teacher in San Francisco. I adore her. Carrie recorded this very song so "Kev" could learn it. (It is very difficult to play, at least for me, BUT Carrie plays it beautifully).

TODAY is Heather Locklear's 46th birthday! (Scha-wing!) I know this is a "gay" blog and I am a big 'mo, but I l-o-v-e, luv her. She's hot.

"We" are also HAPPY to report that "Kev" and BFF "Princess II" WILL be in the FRONT ROW for Stevie's show in October (right next to "Dave"). (It was 7 years ago THIS WEEK that "Kev" MET Stevie (talked with/touched, was photographed with or got something signed, etc.) for the FIRST time (I don't count hand shakes from the stage as meetings). She was super nice. She met me FIRST (and reported the bastards behind me (who were pushing/shoving) to security. I still have (and use) the gold marker Stevie used to sign her photograph.

I hope you ALL had a GR-EAT Tuesday. Come back later in the week to learn all about friend Deborah's trip to the emergency room (it has a pretty good ending - it's the stuff romantic comedies are made of).

Hugs and love -

Crazy Iranian Bastard

In today's news, filed under "crazy."

(Don't forget to catch the season premiere of "How I Met Your Mother," TONIGHT.)

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Columbia University President Lee Bollinger excoriated Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday, going through a long list of documented actions and remarks by the firebrand Iranian leader and his government.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaks Monday at Columbia University in New York.

"Mr. President, you exhibit all the signs of a petty and cruel dictator," Bollinger said to applause from many of the 600 people in the room for a speech from the Iranian leader.

Bollinger cited the Iranian government's "brutal crackdown" on dissidents, public executions, executions of minors and other actions.

And he assailed Ahmadinejad's "denying" of the Holocaust as "ridiculous" and "dangerous propaganda." He called the Iranian leader either brazenly provocative "or astonishingly uneducated."

"The truth is that the Holocaust is the most documented event in human history," he said.

He said he doubted Ahmadinejad would show the intellectual courage to answer the questions before him.

Ahmadinejad responded quickly.

"We don't think it's necessary before the speech is given to come in with some series of claims," the Iranian leader said.

He said Bollinger's comments included "insults" and false claims, and flew in the face of an environment that's supposed to let people speak their minds.

On the Holocaust, Ahmadinejad asked why history can't be questioned and further researched.

"If the Holocaust is a reality of our time, a history that occurred, why is there not sufficient research that can approach the topic from different perspectives?" he asked.

The Iranian leader has made statements in the past suggesting that Israel be politically "wiped off the map," though he insists that can be accomplished without violence. See some of Ahmadinejad's controversial remarks »

While he would not respond with a "yes" or "no" when asked Monday if he sought the destruction of Israel, he said the status of Israel should be determined by a free election.

"Let the people of Palestine freely choose what they want for their future," he said.

Asked about widely documented government abuse of women and homosexuals in his country, Ahmadinejad said, "We don't have homosexuals" in Iran. "I don't know who told you we had it," he said.

Ahmadinejad said Iran questions "the way the world is being run and managed today."

But he said Iran would hold talks with the U.S. government "under fair and just circumstances."

As he ended his talk at Columbia, he invited faculty and students to visit any university they liked in Iran.

Earlier Monday, in a question-and-answer video conference with the National Press Club, Ahmadinejad said the Middle East can govern itself without interference from the United States and other Western nations.

Speaking from New York to the luncheon in Washington, Ahmadinejad said Iran wanted to see "an independent powerful Iraq ... which will benefit the entire region."

"We are two nations interconnected," he said of Iran and Iraq. "We are brothers and friends."

But he said the region didn't need U.S. help.

"We oppose the way the U.S. government tries to manage the world. ... We propose more humane methods of establishing peace," he said.

He also said all the world's religions have the same common ground, "justice and friendship."

The views of all religions must be respected and "we must all move hand in hand," Ahmadinejad said.

Earlier in an interview with The Associated Press, Ahmadinejad said he didn't think the United States was preparing for war against Iran.

"I believe that some of the talk in this regard arises first of all from anger. Secondly, it serves the electoral purposes domestically in this country. Third, it serves as a cover for policy failures over Iraq," he told the AP.

The Iranian president said his country would not attack Israel.

"Iran will not attack any country," the AP quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.

Despite an outcry against Ahmadinejad that included New York tabloid headlines such as "The Evil Has Landed," John Coatsworth, acting dean of Columbia's School of International and Public Affairs, said it is important for Americans to hear from the Iranian leader.

"Iran is going to ... hold the key to peace in the Middle East. We have to deal with and negotiate with leaders like this however much we may disagree with their views," Coatsworth said on CNN's "American Morning."

Christine C. Quinn, speaker of the New York City Council, said Columbia should not be giving Ahmadinejad a platform. "All he will do on that stage ... is spew more hatred and more venom out there to the world," Quinn said.

Hamid Dabasi, a professor of Iranian studies at Columbia, called the whole forum "misguided."

Ahmadinejad also has drawn fire for his insistence that Iran will defy international demands that it halt production of enriched uranium. Iran insists it is producing nuclear fuel for civilian power plants, but Washington accuses Tehran of trying to create a nuclear weapons program.

Also, the United States says Iranian explosives and weapons are making their way to Shiite Muslim militias in Iraq's sectarian conflict and have been used against U.S. troops in the 4-year-old war. U.S. commanders say they have captured Iranian agents involved in supplying those weapons to the militias, some of which have longstanding ties to the Islamic republic.

In an interview broadcast Sunday on CBS' "60 Minutes," Ahmadinejad denied U.S. accusations that Iranian weapons are being used against American troops in Iraq, saying, "Insecurity in Iraq is detrimental to our interests."

He said U.S. officials are blaming his country for problems unleashed by the American-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

"American officials, wherever around the world that they encounter a problem which they fail to resolve, instead of accepting that, they prefer to accuse others," he said. "I'm very sorry that because of the wrong decisions taken by American officials, Iraqi people are being killed and also American soldiers."

He added, "If they accuse us 1,000 times, the truth will not change."

Ahmadinejad landed in New York on Sunday to attend the U.N. General Assembly session, which opens Monday. He is set to speak Tuesday at the United Nations

Saturday's HOT Guy

You're BACK! (And so am I.) Just a very quick post today.

Today's "special edition" "Saturday HOT Guy" is one of "Kev's" favorites. No, this isn't David Beckham (but you can see the likeness, right?). This is 30-year-old, Irish lad and singer, Ronan Keating. I will admit, the only reason I bought two of his CD's is because I think he is c-u-t-e. (What I do not like is that he does not write his own songs and predominantly sings songs other people have already recorded.)

Anyway, please enjoy these pictures of Ronan.

Visit Ronan's official site for more pics and samplings of his songs by clicking RONAN.

Finally, a Ronan song "Kev" enjoys (the guitar and piano are nice in this song).

Greetings! "Kev" is back a little earlier than anticipated (from yet another visit to Florida).

"We" will bring you a "HOT Guy" tomorrow, but today "we" are celebrating Sheena's 1st birthday. You might recall Sheena from a previous post. (She's cute, isn't she?) Sheena is my Aunt Edith's (A.E.'s) Puggle. From what "we" hear, Sheena has had quite a year, chewing her way through just about everything at A.E.'s home. Anyhoo, let's raise our glass to Sheena! (I can't wait to "meet" you in October!) THANKS to A.E. for sending the pictures (they made me smile).

Here's the latest from Hollywood...

Britney (you know, Spears) has been charged with "hit and run" AND driving without a valid license. Apparently, Britney has never had a valid driver's license in the State of California. (They are just realizing this now? That crazy bitch is photographed driving everywhere.) I will tell you that when "Kev" lived in California, he had to take the written part of the test more than once. He was not happy. Which also reminds me... In California, washing your car is just about an all day event. Good luck Britney. You're good people - I am sure everything will work out.

George Clooney (and girlfriend) were hit whilst on his motorcycle in New Jersey. I don't know anything more about this (I JUST got home people) but hear they are both okay now.

Okay, that's IT for today. I hope you ALL have a GR-EAT weekend!


Thursday, September 20, 2007



Today marks our 1,215th post! (I am, of course, kidding... This is #338!)

"Kev," believe it or not, is traveling again (for work) but will be back at the "Corner" on Saturday. As always, if YOU would like to take over the "Corner" for a while, we would love YOUR contributions. You see, the next few weeks are going to be very busy and "Kev" will not be around much. A few of you are reading Perez Hilton's blog (that's okay...) and others of you are reading "London Calling Luv" (that guy has GR-EAT pictures, doesn't he?) but we HOPE you will be patient with us.

Nobody really "good" was born today (in Hollywood, that is) BUT if you see Nicole Richie, Faith Hill, Bill Murray or Ricki Lake, say "HAPPY BIRTHDAY, bitches!" (Each celebrate their birthday on Friday.)

Jennifer Lopez is reportedly pregnant. Who cares, right?

Britney is still crazy. (I believe Perez calls her children, "Spud" and "Tater-Tot," which I think is hysterical, although we do not condone, support or approve of Perez, or tater-tots, although they do make a delicious treat).

"We" haven't featured any pictures of David Beckham recently, so please indulge "us" and enjoy this picture. "We" think he is perfect.

That's IT. Be back on Saturday!

Hugs -

Ola bitches!

Where do we start?

O.J.'s in jail (yay!). The stock market soared today (yay!). Some dumb ass got tased at a John Kerry speaking event in Florida (yay!). What else (yay!)? The Bee Gee's (remember them) released another "Greatest Hits" CD (including remixed versions of your favorite hits) today (yay!). "Kev's" Stevie Nicks tickets arrived today (yay!). "Kev" has a Starbucks card from London (courtesy of Jean) (yay!) (I can't stop saying "yay!")

"We" want to say "safe travels," or "sicheres Reisen" (that's German) to our dear friend "Kitten II" (the Atlanta cat) and her "HOT Guy," Eric, whom we'll call "Tom Cat." (Everyone gets a name here, usually of feline variety, and "Tiger" is taken.") "Kitten" is heading to Vienna, Croatia AND Bosnia. ("We" could not find the Croatian translation for "safe travels" so we went with German...) "We" (especially ME) will miss you. (The "HOT Guy" above is Croatian. Bring him back for me, would ya?) I PROMISE... I will NOT forget to feed Chas-C cat. ALSO, this month marks the 5th anniversary of my friendship with June (I mean, "Kitten II"). HAPPY FRIENNIVERSARY! "Kev" originally moved to Atlanta 5 years ago this month and June was the first person I met! June welcomed me on the 2nd day in the office (she was out of the office on my first day). She said, "Welcome to Atlanta," and hugged me. On my 3rd day, she said, "You're such a blonde," to which I replied, "Oh alright, it's a toupe!" (she's very intuitive). On my 4th day I told her all about this "cute guy," Jimmy, as in "FUN," and the rest is history. Love, hugs and kisses to June and Eric.

That's IT for today. I hope you ALL are having a GR-EAT week.



This YouTube video is for "Kitten II"...

This YouTube video is for the rest of you... (It reminds me of Phoenix...)

I actually have a sort of funny story about THIS Janet Jackson song (and I LOVE her hair in this one)...

Do you want to hear the story? Okay. Come back tomorrow!

Sunday's HOT Guy...


Okay, first, let me say "sorry" to anyone who may have been offended by the title of yesterday's post, "Suck It Jesus." "We" (okay, "me") were quoting the clip of our favorite comedienne, Kathy Griffin. Kathy tells everyone to "suck it" (that's funny, right?) and was simply commenting on how Jesus had nothing to do with her Emmy win. (Am I making matters worse here?) Apparently, Kathy is getting a lot of heat for her acceptance speech. (I still love her.)

Today's HOT Guy, nominated by Mr. P., is Cristiano Ronaldo. Cristiano was born in 1985 (which makes him awfully young) and plays "football" (soccer). I am too tired to research anything more about him, but hope you enjoy the pics!

Have a good week everybody! OH, CONGRATULATIONS to "Dave" who will be sitting in the FRONT ROW for Stevie Nicks' concert at the Rosemont Theatre in October. ("We" are GREEN with envy...)

Suck It Jesus

"Can you believe this shit? Hell has frozen over. Suck it, Jesus, this award is my god now." (Kathy Griffin, on her Emmy Award for "My Life On The D-List.")

Watch this...

And this...

And this...

This cracked me up too... (leave Britney alone...)

Bye y'all!

Is He Gay Or Straight? (Or Simply A Freak)

We interrupt the regularly scheduled "Friday HOT Guy" to bring you this special report (from "Kitten")...

("Kev" will be back tomorrow!)

Is he gay or straight (or simply a freak)? At a glance, the key to telling might be in the way he walks.

A swing of the hips or a swaggered shoulder is enough for many casual observers to identify a man’s sexual orientation, according to a study published in the September issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. (The use of the words "gurl" and "mary" are also tell-tale signs.)

Observers were only able to accurately guess the sexual orientation of men; with women, their guesses didn’t exceed chance. But what’s most interesting to researchers is understanding how that snap judgment can unleash a series of stereotypes — even from the most liberal-minded.

“This is important for the understanding of perception and feelings of assumptions and bias,” says lead author Kerri Johnson, an assistant professor of communications at the University of California, Los Angeles. “Once you know an individual’s sexual orientation, every else that happens is seen through that lens.”

Johnson and her colleagues attached motion sensors, like those used in the movie industry, to the hips and shoulders of eight volunteers – four men and four women, half of whom were gay. The motion sensors captured the only movements of the walkers, masking details such as clothing or hairstyles.

The researchers videotaped the volunteers walking on a treadmill at various speeds, and then played the video for 150 undergraduate observers, who were asked to determine the sexual orientation of each person.

Observers' accuracy -

As the gay men walked, they slightly swayed their hips. The observers were accurate in assessing the men's sexual orientation a little more than 60 percent of the time.

“There’s reason to think that gay people can’t conceal their homosexuality,” says Michael Bailey, a professor of psychology at Northwestern University. “I don’t think it’s a performance that gay people enact. I think it’s something that either is inborn, or it’s acquired very early, perhaps by watching members of the other sex.”

Research such as Johnson's may give scientific credence to "gaydar," suggesting that people really can tell whether someone is gay or straight from visual clues.

As the lesbians walked, they slightly moved their shoulders back and forth — Johnson calls it a less exaggerated version of an Arnold Schwarzenegger-type swagger.

But when it came to identifying the sexual orientation of the women, it was all up to chance.

“Women in our society are permitted a greater latitude of behaviors,” Johnson says. “They’re able to act in masculine ways , and adopt traditional masculine roles. That’s been happening since the ’60s.

“We’re a society that permits women to do this, in fact, celebrates women who do this,” she continues. “But we punish men for [adopting feminine traits]."

Johnson jokes that she’s often been called a “men’s libber,” but she hopes her research will provide a foundation to explore those types of gender biases.

The findings aren’t meant to be used as a diagnostic test, Johnson says. In other words, don’t use her research to out someone. But although the research is getting attention for its results about a distinction in how gay men walk, Johnson and her colleagues were more focused on studying the observers.

“If we know how people use these cues to categorize one another, it can help us understand what happens in how they react with other people,” Johnson says.

That quick assessment can mean that the observer is associating that person with stereotypes they've heard — for example, that a gay man isn't as masculine as a straight man. Next, Johnson plans to study the implications of judging someones sexuality by those visual clues.

Even if we’ve unconsciously identified a person’s sexual orientation, it can affect how we treat that person, says Gerulf Rieger, a lecturer of psychology at Northwestern University. Rieger has worked on similar research projects that deal with people identifying someone’s sexual orientation when given very little information.

“We can pick these signals up; we can tell who’s gay and who’s not,” Rieger says. “Understanding how people differ, and accepting those [genetic] differences, can only help tolerance.”

Watch THIS. (It makes me laugh... I am waiting for the gay to kick up his heel and shout, "Look at me!" Otherwise, I can't tell much of a difference.)

Brewster Place

Hello! WELCOME (bitches)!

What is UP?

Last night we "teased" you with a "teaser" (we like to "tease" - we're silly) telling you about red carpets and champagne. Tonight, we're back to tell you all about last night. Ready? (It's exciting...) First, "Kev" has a friend who is the "head" concierge (no hidden "gay" meaning here) at a high-end boutique hotel here in Atlanta. Let's just say this friend is connected. He's a rock star. He knows everyone. Everyone knows him. It's fun. It's exciting. Anyhoo, this friend invited "Kev" to the WORLD PREMIERE of the musical version of "The Women of Brewster Place" at the Alliance Theatre. (Does everyone remember the movie starring Oprah, Jackee Harry and Robin Givens? If not, you can Google it - it's really not that important or central to what this post is about, although it was riveting, spell-binding, moving, two thumbs up, etc. and tells the tale about strong black women and their lives at Brewster Place). Let me back up a couple of weeks... When "Kev" was invited, he was asked if he had a tux (as in edo). To this I replied, "hell to the no." Typically, if an establishment or event is not "cap friendly," I won't go (you understand, right?). I didn't really GET the magnitude of the event, even though I was told it was a "WORLD PREMIERE," but agreed to wear my best suit (which is a new black Kenneth Cole - my favorite. Affordable. Simple). (Is this paragraph too long?) We arrived at the Alliance and I'll be damned if there wasn't a red carpet (television cameras, photographers and journalists interviewing folks as they walked in). I looked for a back entrance and asked the security guard, "Are you sure we're supposed to walk in this way?" The original cast of "The Women of Brewster Place" (as well as Atlanta's Mayor Shirley Franklin) were in attendance (so I suppose the carpet was mainly for them)! I have to tell you...the red carpet was intense! Very intimidating. Especially because when we arrived, we were two (of four) people walking it. I held my hand/arm over my face (the lights were bright) and shouted, "Please, no pictures!" (Okay, I am making that up...) A journalist at the end of the carpet starting asking questions (she stuck a microphone in my face). I didn't hear the question but responded "Kenneth Cole" and "I miss my cap!" (I thought she was asking me what I was wearing). We get inside and the place is filled with muckety mucks, gays and African-Americans. A perfect theatre crowd. Once in our seats, I started chatting with the nice African-American woman in the seat to my left, who happened to be a reporter for "Urban Madness" (or something like that), which is a paper distributed here in Atlanta. For some reason unknown to me, the first thing I stated to her was, "I met Oprah!" The second was "I have a picture with Mo'Nique!" I don't know why I felt compelled to rattle off every famous African-American (can I just say "black?") I ever met. I wondered if I should throw in a white person I had met to throw her off? I wanted her to know I was "with it" but didn't want to seem too eager to fit in. (I feel like I should start a new paragraph.) The show started. There was a lot of singing (which I guess is inherent and essential in a musical). Here comes the best part... The intermission came and "Kev" made a dash to the lobby to hunt out and speak to Jackee Harry (everyone remember her) AND Robin Givens (former Mrs. Mike Tyson, who you know "Kev" met in Phoenix). I regretted that I didn't have a cell phone because my FIRST thought was "I gotta get one of them to call "Princess!" Okay, so I find Jackee and I say to her, "Can I just say I love you?" (I don't know why I said that. Just excited. I don't really love her. That would be non-sense, right?) She said "Yes, you can tell me you love me." (So told her I loved her and squeezed her arm. She smiled and I skirted away). Mission accomplished. Met another celebrity. The intermission ended and still no Robin Givens in sight. Back at my seat, I asked the kind African-American (black) urban paper journalist reporter woman (to my left) if she had seen Robin Givens and she pointed to where she was sitting (which was to my right not too far). I thought "SA-WEET!" Robin looked GR-EAT. Really stunning. I spent the rest of the remainder of the show watching Robin watching the show, wondering if she was enjoying it. You know she hasn't spent a DAY at Brewster Place (i.e., housing project). (Oh, I should tell you, my friend has met/talked with Robin, as well as countless many other celebrities who stay at his hotel, so none of this phased him. He also KNOWS the B52's!) As we were leaving the theatre, I waited for Robin to pass. I waved and smiled at her and as she passed, I may have said something about meeting her ex-husband. Anyway, the event was high-end, bar-none. THANKS to Brent for taking me.

Finally, Bon Voyage to my "sistah," who is embarking on a 10-day cruise! Have f-u-n. ("We" miss you already!)

That's IT for tonight! Please come back soon!

Fo Shizzle


How is EVERYONE? I hope you are all having a GR-EAT week!

First, let me say "THANKS" for your patience. "We" haven't written a thing since Saturday, (the whole staff split) and frankly, some of you are worried (which is super nice, but not necessary). "Kev" has just had a very busy week (and is still quite delirious right now).

Second, "Kev" had a night tonight that was "off the chain," however, he is far too tired and delirious to share it with you. (I know... I complain a lot.) BUT, "he" hopes you will come back tomorrow when he is well rested and ready to write. (It is VERY exciting and I want to share the details with you, but I really just need to go to bed right now). I will tell you that the night included a red carpet, champagne AND "Kev" MET another celebrity (in a social setting, not even at a stupid book signing). I live for this 'fo shizzle...

Did everyone watch "Flipping Out" last night? I l-o-v-e, love the show and the entire "cast." "Let's go lunch." (Zoila, Housekeeper.)

If you see actor/model, HOT Guy, PAUL WALKER, wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY (and spank him). He turns 34 TODAY! (I don't know what he has been in, but his pictures are featured here today!)

I hope you ALL have a GR-EAT Thursday. I WILL be back tomorrow!

Hugs & Love -

Something Nasty Something Nice

Okay, "we" said we would not be back for several days but, as usual, "we" lied. "We" really are heading out of town, but "we" didn't want to leave without sharing the following news with you...

"Kev" is still reeling from the fact that he will see Stevie Nicks, Kathy Griffin, "Princess," Scottie, "Dave," and everyone else in Chicago (but mostly just Stevie Nicks) in the SAME weekend! I am happy to report that "Kev" and "Princess" will be in Row 10 for Stevie's performance! I have to tell you, I made a rookie mistake this time. I did EXACTLY what I told all of you NOT to do... I let my "I gotta get these tickets NOW" instinct get the best of me. I am certain I could have secured better than Row 10, had I just "played out the game," (which is also a Stevie Nicks lyric). While we won't be able to touch her, we should be able to see her pretty well and I am certain she will hear us screaming her name (she likes that). I have already reserved my own personal "Queer Eye" shopper, Jason, who will help coordinate something to wear for the evening. (Although, Jason, sweetheart, I am too old for the Justin Timberlake jeans. Think "fun," yet age appropriate. My age, not yours.)

Atlanta's Midtown neighborhood is a buzz today. Tonight is the Dave Matthews (Band) concert in Piedmont Park, which has also been dubbed "Straight Pride 2007." Yesterday I "joked" that the show benefited "the children" (because I had NO idea what the show was for). Low and behold, I found out today that the show actually WILL benefit the children. Proceeds from the show will be used to build a "handicapable" park for disabled children. That's nice, right?

Rapper Foxy Brown was sentenced to one year in jail. I might care if I knew who she was or what she did. Good luck Foxy. It's probably for the best.

Something nasty...

Something nice...

Have a GR-EAT week everybody.

Much l-u-v,

Friday's HOT Guy...

It's FRIDAY! Welcome back you sonsofbitches (I don't know how to spell that...). What's up with your bad self?

On Wednesday, "we" reported that Stevie Nicks will be performing on October 19th at "Chicago's" Rosemont Theatre (Chicago is in quotes because while near Chicago, it is not technically in Chicago. It's in Rosemont). Tickets went on sale this morning and "Kev" is happy to report that he and "Princess" will be attending the show! Everyone knows the obsession "Kev" has with Stevie Nicks (it's crazy - I am the first to admit that) but this time, I am as equally excited about seeing Stevie as I am with the fact that "Princess" will be joining me! You see, "Princess" is crazy cool (yes, I am 40 and I wrote that) and even a trip to the grocery store with her is f-u-n, fun! To "Dave," THANKS for the heads up about the show! "We" ("Princess" and I) will see you there (of course we will pretend we don't know you). To "Princess," I am super excited! Glad you can make it!

"Kev" is also seeing Kathy Griffin in Nashville later this month (YAY)! (2007 has really turned out to be a GR-EAT year.)

Okay, I am really out of touch with the rest of the world, politics and celebrity gossip. (I admit, this isn't a very good blog.)

Everyone has heard about that dirty bastard Republican Senator trying to get lucky in a bathroom stall, right? That's gross. Use the internet like the rest of us.

Dave Matthews will be performing in Atlanta's Piedmont Park (just around the corner from "Kev's" place) TOMORROW. The show benefits the earth or the park or "the children" (I don't know) and is SOLD OUT. "Kev" will not be attending the show (since it is sold out) and because he will be in Florida.

Today's HOT Guy is actor Tim Daly. Doesn't Tim look GR-EAT? He's on a new show that I can't remember the name of and am certain I will not watch, but check your local listings - you won't want to miss it. I could not find super hot (half nekked, which is how they say "naked" here in the south) pictures of Tim, but hope these will do.

That's IT for today my friends. "Kev" will be out of town and very, very busy the next week SO we will not be back here for several days. Be good.
