Even though I follow all this on social media, I haven't seen many reality TV shows...and I don't plan to in the future. However, I do know who Honey Boo Boo is. How could you not know? She's kind of like the modern day Shirley Temple, loosely speaking, who can't sing, dance, or yodel.
In any event, Honey Boo Boo's mom, Mama June, and her sister, Pumpkin, recently came out as bisexual.
June 'Mama June' Shannon chimed in to correct her daughter: 'Bisexual.'
'I'm not going to lie, I played in the minors but never went pro,' she added.
By not going pro, she means that while she has been with women physically, she has never had a relationship with one.
Of potential backlash from the revelations, June says: 'I look at it this way, haters are going to hate.'
You can read the rest here. I see a lot of people complaining about reality TV. Frankly, I'm not a huge fan myself. But someone is. And it has become a huge part of pop culture. These shows are evidently attracting a huge following and a lot of people are making a lot of money.
Bruce Jenner's Roller Coaster
I see a lot about Bruce Jenner, too, on social media and some of the things I see surprise me a little. I think by now everyone knows I've always supported trans people. All my life, in my real life, because I've known many trans people who lived and worked right here in New Hope. There was "Sheva" who was a male to female transgender who worked in Princeton for an attorney. There was "Mother Cavalucci" who not only lived as a transgender but also did regular drag shows at local gay bars. Then there was "Mary Margaret" who took her little dog with her everywhere. And those are just a few transgender people I've known. But some of this press about Jenner is often a little strange...and not because he's transgender. I blame it more on the press and the way it's handled.
'It’s going to be an emotional roller coaster but somehow I’m going to get through it,' Jenner says in the latest in a series of promos. 'I want to know how this story ends…you know… how does my story end?'
The most redeeming feature about this whole thing is that maybe Jenner will help other people who are trans come to terms with themselves. I just hope he gets a few highlights in his hair. That dark brown needs to go. The older you get the lighter you go.
The rest is here.
Frank Ocean Changed His Name
Of course I've posted about the good looking openly gay rapper, Frank Ocean, a few times. I would be sleeping at the proverbial wheel if I hadn't. I love rap music; I love good looking men like Frank Ocean. There's not much more to say.
For most of his life Frank Ocean has been known in private circles as Edwin Breaux. Not a bad name, but he recently made the Frank Ocean name legal.
According to TMZ, the Pyramids singer filed for the name change back in March.
But due to some outstanding legal issues, mainly to do with his drivers license, the court put the brakes on the process.
It's now gone through, so he can be addressed both on and off stage by Frank Ocean.
Here's the rest, with a photo.
