Blake Lewis and Chris Richardson, Together Forever

B1 C1

I know that more than a few people were unhappy to see the break-up of American Idol‘s dynamic duo Chris Richardson and Blake Lewis last night. Thanks to our wizards in the Towleroad labs, however, the two will never have to be apart again.

I now present to you – Cake!

Cake

And lest we forget, the sad good-bye:

Chris to Entertainment Weekly on the BFF-moment:

EW: So let’s talk about the Chris-Blake BFF moment last night: I didn’t realize you two were such buds.

RICHARDSON: We developed a friendship back in Hollywood and clicked since then. We’ve been roommates forever now. He’s become like a brother to me. It’s just been one of those things. Me and him are both very big on loyalty and friendship, you know. We have a lot in common. We might not sing exactly alike, but our styles of music and our style in general is very similar. You can’t be anything but excited when your boy makes it through to another round.

    why don’t they get married already? LOL

    oh, that’s right, it is not legal in land of the “free”.

    well, they can always come to my Canada. LOL

    I am overly obsessed with these two (well, Chris really). The way he eye-fucks you onstage. While we’ll never know what happened at the “Idol Mansion” or wherever they house these guys, we can always hope..

    Open comment to MTV: Please consider Chris for honorary membership into the Real World / Road Rules circuit. He’ll give those boys a run for their money.

    Oh my god, how cute were they last night? When they were standing up, waiting for one of their names to be called, you could see Chris stretching out his hand to hold Blake’s and then thinking better of it. And then after Chris sang, Blake could NOT keep his shit together.

    How the hell do people become BEST friends in 2 months?

    Best friends are the ones there when the shit hits the fan. Time and being there during traumatic situations like a car breaking down at 4 in the morning in some out of the way bum hick town and needing a ride from your friend is what makes best friends. A best friend is someone that gives you a kidney. How does singing on stage together for 2 months = best friends?

    Nothing happens by chance in hollywood. The Best friends schtick had to have been cooked up by one of idol’s PR people.

    Of course they are best friends. Who else is going to be able to relate what they are going through. This is the biggest SHOW ever! I think you are are mean for putting a homosexual slant a friendship. Gay people can be so bitter and hateful. Leave the boys alone.

  7. adamblast says

    Nice morph. I don’t follow AI, but that looks like a real person exactly halfway between the other two.

    I wonder how long it is until we have movies featuring characters morphed between the performances of two actors?

    they were sooooo cute together last night !
    when chris said of blake when they were the last two standing, “i’d go home for him” my heart melted. i’ll miss their hugging and playful poking and staring into each other’s eyes. it’s a shame that the producers didn’t play up their friendship sooner. a little homo-eroticism would have perked up this otherwise rather dreary season.

  9. pacificoceanboy says

    Mike then your best friend should be leary of being your best friend when you hold such a title/ designation with such little regard.

    BEST friend is a one person and one person only title that is earned by being there when the chips are down and the shit hits the fan. 2 months of idol stress is not enough to be a best friend. At best a fair weather friend. With all the interns taking care of all their needs and people screaming out their names and practicaly throwing their underware at them = NOT real life stress….till lets say chris ends up in a hospital needing a kidney and Blake is making more money and does or does not have the time or will to help out. Sorry, 2 months of idol stress is not Best friend making material.

    It is Idol PR illusion, they were probably told back stage to ham it up for the camera. It is hollywood the capitol of smoke, mirrors, and illusions.

    I bet you are the type that considers themselves married to a boyfriend on the 2nd date. OY VEY

    pacificoeanboy and mike, let it go. whetever your opinion is about when two people can be considered best friends is just that. an opinion. there is no science there. measuring the degree of friendship is a personal matter. to each his own.

  11. Silverskreen says

    Whoa!! Easy there, “pacificoceanboy”. First the threatening voicemail messages to the daughter and now bashing poor mike for his bff ideals. Tisk, Tisk. 30Rock not keeping you busy enough?

  12. Billy says

    Seriously, get a grip, people. And pacificoceanboy, they weren’t just friends during “two months of stress.” The audition process went all the way back almost a year. You don’t know how long they’ve known eachother.

  13. pacificoceanboy says

    I guess a sucker is truly born every minute. You guys do know that idol is HOLLYWOOD. Everything is a PR stunt. I have some bridges to sell the lot of you.

    I wonder how many of you let the word love drop from your lips just as easily as Best Friend. I bet by the 3rd date max for a bunch of you.

    When you can say after years of knowing someone you know they will be there for you no matter what and that you will be there for them no matter what and when they are all alone and dieing of aids that you are the only one visiting them and taking care of them due to their family disowning them. Taking care of them because everytime you needed help they were there for you no matter what. THEN come to me and talk about the meaning of the words BEST FRIEND. A Best Friend is a rare thing. Very few actualy get one in their lifetime let alone have more than 1 over a lifetime. I had 1, and a true best friend is such a treasure that you don’t allow the word to drop so freely from your lips just because someone makes you smile a few times during fair weather.

    Hell the word “Friend” gets thrown around way too much by people. You are lucky if you can number true frineds on more than 1 finger. All others are just acquintances.

    When the rain comes in then you will realize what a Best friend is and what acquintances are.

    Can you honestly name 1 person not a family member that you know without doubt would give you a kidney? Is there someone not family that without doubt or hesitation you would give a kidney to?

    Be honest with yourself and you might just understand the true meaning of “Best friend” via your lack there of

  15. pacificoceanboy says

    Better yet, do this simple mental exercise.

    Take everyone you call a friend or say they are your friend and picture truthfuly which ones really will show up at your funeral. Narrows it down doesn’t it. Family members do not count. You just widdled out all of the acquintances of varying degree. Now out of those that actualy would show up at your funeral, which one without a moment hesitation would take your place so you could live again and they would be buried in the ground. your mother doesn’t count. IF!!!! You can name 1 then that is your best friend and count yourself lucky.

    POB:

    if you are right then the entire show from top to bottom is fake. These are just a bunch of actors hired to play the role of contestants and pretend to go through the motions of a competition. Heck, when you call to vote the number is probably just disconnected.

  17. Bobby says

    I’d give my eye teeth to watch Chris, Blake and Ryan go at it. I think they’re all adorable. I wasn’t surprised to see Chris make his exit, though. I have a feeling the final showdown will be between Melinda and Jordan……we shall see….

  18. sean says

    i’m just not feelin’ the vibe looks-wise on either of these dudes. chris evans the actor, now there’s a hot guy. paul walker ain’t so bad either. ok, enough fantasy talk for tonight.

    pretty close

    An overglorified game show mated with a scripted reality show = American idol. Heck haven’t you seen the youtube videos of Lakisha in state wide contests? The producers found her and had her go through the motions for the camera.

  20. strepsi says

    POB, remember how very young they are.

    Remember when you did your first high-school play and the adrenaline and the nervousness makes everyone hyper emotional, and they are all “OMG, we’re Best Friends Forever! We’ll call each otehr every DAY!!!” And then it doesn’t happen.

    Or they’re lovers.

    I just saw Chris saying he has broken up with his girlfriend of 3 years back home. Moving to a new crowd, or inching out of the closet? More than Blake, he makes my gaydar ping. The almost-hand-holding was adorable.

  21. Joy says

    What is wrong with you ppl…they are just friends its not like they are more then that….whats wrong with having a best friend….I hate it when ppl say stuff like “Ewwww thats creepy” or “They should get married!” :/
    I’m sure most of you have a best friend and no one tells you those things so dont say stuff bout them like that!!! I think its really cute that they got to be best friends!!! :]

  22. Not a happy Camper says

    I think you guys are immature and stupid!!! Who ever made up the Cake stuff, is ridiculous! Dont hate cause you’re ugly and have no friends!!!

    I believe in friendships and bonds, and that is great they have one! Not to mention i love them both! Love ya guys see ya on tour!
