RoadJason Momoa is his own special kind of furry.

RoadCourtney Love is joining Sons of Anarchy. "In what marks her dramatic TV acting debut, Love will play Ms. Harrison, the straight-shooting preschool teacher of Jax’s eldest son, Abel."

RoadAthletes get nude for ESPN's The Body Issue.

RoadSean Hayes to join The Millers as series regular: "The Will and Grace alum will play Kip Withers, Carol Miller's (Margo Martindale) new best friend and a source of friction for her son Nathan (Will Arnett)."

RoadLawyers request summary judgment in challenge to Arizona gay marriage ban: "The attorneys told U.S. District Court Judge John W. Sedwick they believe he can instead rule based on arguments each side will file in the coming months. The lawyers are split on whether oral arguments are needed, with lawyers for Arizona saying none are necessary. Lawyers for the couples want oral arguments to be set for later this year."

RoadJustin Bieber charged with misdemeanor in egging case.

PlaneRoadCutest plane ever made?

RoadLaverne Cox to star in Bravo's first original scripted series: "Cox will play Adele Northrop, a 'Pulitzer Prize-winning war journalist and LGBT advocate who presents an award at a marriage equality gala.' The series follows recently divorced self-help writer Abby (Lisa Edelstein, House) as she navigates being a newly single woman in her early 40s."

RoadBrian Sims fundraising during Provincetown Bear Week: "As a State Representative, Brian has fought hard for LGBT rights and equality for all. He is an author and prime sponsor of the Pennsylvania Marriage Equality Act and the Pennsylvania Equal Pay Act.

Brian has worked hard to bring equality for all to the Commonwealth and will continue that battle if re-elected."

MorrisseyRoadMorrissey releases World Peace is None of Your Business. "In its stompy art song streaked with slick noise and nuevo-flamenco guitar, its clumsy lyrics, its condemnation of so much human endeavor, all its stolid idiosyncrasy, “World Peace” (Harvest/Capitol) constitutes its own weird kind of pedantic success."

RoadToronto Mayor was reportedly disruptive in rehab: "Mayor Rob Ford pushed and scuffled with fellow rehab residents and was so verbally abusive that he was kicked out of his group therapy program, according to people who have knowledge of his two month stay at GreeneStone."

RoadAFA: People who couldn't 'pray away the gay' weren't trying hard enough. "Ed Vitagliano of the American Family Association writes in this month’s edition of the AFA Journal that while he knows many people have 'prayed endlessly for God to remove their same-sex attractions — to no avail,' that is because they simply haven’t called upon the power of God 'to gain mastery over [their] impulses.'"

  4. The worst thing Sean Hayes ever did was come out. His career was fine until then. Not sure why it's the new fad for celebrities to come out but some need to realize that it will destroy their careers if they do so. Just keep it to yourself. The American public isn't ready for open and flaming gay men on TV (and may never be) and that's fine. You have to respect your viewers first if you want their respect in return.

  5. Now Bravo is hopping on the Tranny bandwagon. This country and the LGB community is headed towards the gutter.

  8. Rick,

    why did you post the exact same comment as MaryM. Don't steal her material...or, don't steal your own material.

    I'm so proud of Laverne Cox. To see an OPENLY Transwoman become a celebrity and serious actress.

    Well, Candy Darling did it 40 years ago, but she couldn't survive.

  9. I had the pleasure of seeing Laverne Cox speak in Tornoto during world pride. She's a class act, and truly lives up to being a "possibility model"

    i love you laverne, and can't wait to see you on this new show!

  10. Rick says: "The American public isn't ready for open and flaming gay men on TV"...yes, and 8 seasons of the very popular "Will & Grace" proved you wrong. Idiot. Just because you are afraid to come out of the closet doesn't mean you have to throw crap at others. We get it, you only like closeted, athletic, white, straight acting men. Now go back to trolling on "sports message boards" and shut the hell up already you know-nothing blowhard.

  11. Rick, Sean Hayes actually came out to revive his career. After Will & Grace his onscreen presence was pretty much non-existent.

    I don't even know why I'm bothering to address you; your prejudices make you blind to everything that is reasonable.

  12. So RICK says the American public isn't ready for open and flaming gay men on TV in regards to an actor who played an open and flaming gay man on a succesful TV show. This same TV show that was highly rated, award-winning and has been cited as a show that helped influence and change perceptions and attitudes toward gay people in this country! Way to contradict yourself in one sentence Orville! You got to shake your head at the pure stupidity of some people.

  13. Rupaul is the reason Laverne gets to do this..

    He is very nice.

    I love you, Angelo !

  15. Ya RICK, you're dead wrong on that one. Have a better day.

  16. I hate myself so very very much.

    Please pity me because it's clear each post I make is a cry for help.
