Everything Old is New

RuPaul’s Drag Race kicked off the new season and the New Year on SIX different networks simultaneously.  Of course, they were all kinda the same network, and despite a few changes, the show was kinda the same ol’ show.  As you know, this year features the first openly trans male competitor.  Because of that, Ru has tweaked one of her catchphrases.  Ru used to say, “Gentlemen, start your engines, and may the best woman win,” when it was time to “lip sync for your life”.  She’ll now say, “Racers, start your engines, and may the best drag queen win”.  It’s the little things that mean so much – an adage I’ve never found to be true.

In a related story, Eddie Izzard is now formally using the pronouns “She/Her”.  As luck would have it, I’ve always called Eddie “Girl”.  Or was it “Gurl”?


Three of HBO’s most popular series are headed down the path to reboot.  The network has announced that new versions of True Blood and In Treatment are in the works.  However, the return of Sex and the City got the most attention.  Not surprisingly, only three of the original co-stars have signed on – with Kim Cattrall once again demurring.  “I’m lucky enough to have the choice.”  Well, the gay fans are not having it.  No quartet, no viewers.

Meanwhile, ABC is looking at resuming All My Children…as a nighttime soap!  The plans are to follow a younger generation of characters with mostly new actors.  However, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos have indicated that they’d be interested in returning.  Meanwhile, La Lucci is sitting by the phone.
