Sisters and Queers Reunite

Last week, The View celebrated the 30th anniversary of Sister Act 2.  Most of the cast reunited with Whoopi Goldberg for great stories and great music.  Some cast members – like Jenifer Lewis and Jennifer Love Hewitt – were unable to be there in person, so they sent in video messages.  But one notable person was conspicuously absent – and virtually unmentioned.  On the show’s podcast, Brian Teta (executive producer of The View) said, “Lauryn Hill…we made every effort to get her here, but unfortunately it just didn’t work out.  We would have loved to have had her, she’s very important to the movie, but it didn’t work out.”  Maybe she was just late…again.


Inching closer to Boston, another reunion is taking place – and this one should be complete.  Queer Eye is a global phenomenon, but it all started over 20 years ago.  In July 2003, Bravo broadcast the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, and it ran for five seasons.  The boys are reuniting for a special evening at the Foxwoods Casino on June 22nd.  Cleverly titled An Evening with the Original Fab Five: 20 Years Later, Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley and Jai Rodriguez all plan to attend.  They did another reunion a few months ago, and it was so successful they are adding dates.  The show will include behind-the-scenes stories, design tips, Q&A, and a live makeover – God help us.  You can grab your tix at
