I heard Sean on Andy's show on SiriusXM Stars not too long ago. They have great chemistry. Sean is a bit darker in outlook and humor than Andy... And, as I was reaching for my phone to see what hockey player just came out, Sean started talking about his girlfriend. Noooooooo!

Andy Cohen is a walking minstrel show and an embarrassment to the gay community. Or at least he should be.

Marcus, just curious why you think that?

Andy always comes off so smug and holier-than-thou. I can't stand him.
These comments are typical of why so many straight men are wary of forming friendships with gay men. They will be assumed to be gay, themselves, by many, just for having a gay male friend--which is still a stigma with much of the population, like it or not, and that acts as a disincentive to them.
So you, yourselves, are just as responsible for the reluctance of many straight men to be friends with gay men as homophobia, itself, is.

Two guys go out and have pizza. One is straight, the other is gay.

Correction, Johnny. A FAMOUS straight guy and a FAMOUS gay guy go out and have pizza. Therefore, blogworthy.

Sorry, but I find most straight men a bore, Rick. We have nothing in common, most of the time. It's rare that I meet one who isn't all about either sports, big boobs, hunting, fishing, beer or all five at the same time. Bore/snore. We just have nothing in common.
As for Andy Cohen I would LOVE to slap him like crazy. If for no other eggregious offenses than subjecting the world to those hideous "housewives".

"It's rare that I meet one who isn't all about either sports, big boobs, hunting, fishing, beer or all five at the same time"
Talk about stereotypes. The fact that you think most straight guys are into hunting and fishing is either a commentary on where you live or just ignorance. Maybe in Wyoming or Arkansas or rural Wisconsin, but in New York or Chicago or LA?
Sports? Yes. It is how men bond. Including many gay men. And many more would if we managed to eradicate the culture of effeminacy and allow gay men to re-claim their masculinity.
Big boobs? Yeah. They are straight. No common interest there, but it is just one thing.
Beer? Yeah. Do no gay men like beer? I sure see a helluva lot of it being drunk in bars.
All that said, there is SOME validity to your point. And here is why. A homophobic male culture has always insisted that straight men remain distant from each other emotionally and for that reason, they have always stayed away from topics that were too "personal" and might result in emotional closeness between two men. if discussed. Being honest about one's feelings also can lead to a notion that you are vulnerable (i.e. weak)--which is a no-no in traditional straight male culture.
So that is why they usually stick with "safe" topics that are impersonal in nature.....or they talk about women, which is a way of reinforcing heterosexuality (and more leeway is allowed in these discussions because by their very nature they are "non-homosexual")
That was the OLD straight male culture, but it is changing. What is disconcerting is that as it is changing--and becoming non-homophobic--many gay men seem to be digging their heels in and resisting change, almost as thought they are scared of meeting straight men halfway.
I think that fear is the result of the built-in fear of masculinity that so many gay men have.....and that is what we need to overcome.....and if and when we do, the barriers between straight and gay men will disappear.....in fact, the terms straight and gay will no longer have much meaning.

I used to loathe Andy Cohen. I used to think he was despicable. I thought he was a self-promoting peacock with nothing to offer to this world but the lowest level trash tv. Then I actually watched his show and now I have become quite fond of him. The day he had Jerry Seinfeld on his show and I could see how Jerry squirmed and rolled his eyes and evaded questions, I became a big Andy fan. He brings all his guests to a simple human level where we all poop and have sex and eat bad things and we finally get to see these "stars" in a human way.

I hate to stereotype but Andy hun, wine with pizza?

There's also evidence of two former salads. Do straight men devour salads? Gay.
When Sean had his... issues in the NHL, I thought his best course of action, gay or not, was to come out of the closet and blame all his reprehensible behavior off the ice (on the ice is a whole other story and just depended if he was on the team you were rooting for or against) on the pressures of the closet.

Pepperoni pizza, salami dessert !
Andy is a loose bottom

Not afraid of masculinity, just find sports incredibly boring. As do most of my straight friends. Do whatever you please but don't think that you are more of a man cause you enjoy watching others play games for money.

Rick, yet again, trots out his man drag. Boring.
Sean Avery is effing hot though.
