Andy Cohen Turns Down Hosting Miss Universe In Moscow, Cites Russia's Anti-Gay Policies


Coming on the heels of the recent anti-gay atrocities in Russia, Andy Cohen announced he will not be returning to his gig as co-host of the Miss Universe pageant in 2013 as the pageant is being held in Moscow for the first time ever.

E! News reports that Cohen, the popular host of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live and the glory that is every Bravo reunion, told two-time co-host Giuliana Rancic, that "he turned [the job] down because '[Russia's] discriminatory policies make it unsafe for the gays who live there and gays coming to work or visit...The law is that anyone under suspicion of homosexuality can be arrested'...adding that he 'didn't feel right as a gay man stepping foot into Russia.'"

Cohen has previously co-hosted the pageant in 2011 and 2012. The pageant is put on by the Miss Universe Organization which is co-owned by NBC Universal and Donald Trump.

Five Summer TV Series Everyone's Talking About



Just because many consider summer to be television's "off-season," doesn’t mean there aren’t still plenty of new shows making their debut. Sure, some (much) of it is junk, as many networks burn off series that failed to inspire enough confidence to bow in the fall. Some shows manage to build a following despite the odds -- Seinfeld, Sex & the City and The O.C., to name a few -- but it's too early to tell which of the 2013 summer slate will become the next big hit.

Take a break from catching up on last season and binge-watching established shows on Netflix to check out these new series heating up the summer small screen.

The Wanted's Max George Thinks He Knows Which Member of One Direction is Gay: VIDEO


Earlier this month in Australia, UK boyband The Wanted was asked about recent remarks by Lance Bass that "in every boyband there is at least one gay one."

Jay McGuinness (top left) answered both the interviewer's and Bass's question, responding, "I think most of us would probably have a dabble."

Andy Cohen took that concept a bit further on his show Watch What Happens Live, asking The Wanted which member of rival boy band One Direction might fit that bill. The answer came fast and furious.

Jason Collins, Michelle Obama Attend LGBT DNC Fundraiser in NYC: PHOTO

Out basketball player Jason Collins, who headlined a DNC LGBT fundraiser last night in New York City, tweeted this photo from the event.

ABC News reports:

Speaking at the DNC’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Leadership gala in New York City, Collins, who publicly revealed he was gay for the first time last month, called the first lady “a steadfast champion for LGBT families,” who with her husband is working to convey that “the most important thing that defines a family is love.”

Collins said he hopes his announcement provides “courage to those still unsure about coming out and I hope it shows them the overwhelming amount of support that is waiting for them.”

“Jason, we are so proud of you. We are proud of your talent, your character, your courage, and we are so proud,” the first lady said. “He has just made the difference in the lives of so many of our young people. So let’s give one more round of applause to our friend, Jason Collins. We love you so much, Jason.”

It's not clear how much was raised at the event ( $1,250 and up to $32,400 per person), hosted by Bravo's Andy Cohen, although one powerful donor spoke out yesterday, announcing he was cutting off funds to the DNC over frustration about the lack of movement on immigration and ENDA from the party and the President.
