Check Out Joe Manganiello's Speech Accepting the HRC Ally for Equality Award: VIDEO

Manganiello

True Blood hunk and longtime LGBT ally Joe Manganiello attended the Human Rights Campaign Seattle Dinner last weekend to accept the Ally for Equality Award.

Said Manganiello during his acceptance speech:

You know I never set out to be an advocate, I'm simply a person who believes in equality for everyone. And I'm a person who believes in standing up for his friends. And if I'm being completely honest, there's a small part of me that felt weird about accepting an award just because I think that everyone should be treated the same - that each individual be allowed the basic human right to love whomever their heart wants to love without fear or hatred or prejudice. 

Check out the full speech, which includes a highlight reel of some of Manganiello's greatest shirtless moments in cinema AFTER THE JUMP...

Joe Manganiello Offers Some Stripper Lessons to Conan: VIDEO

Joe Manganiello and Conan O'Brien Stripper Moves

Everyone's favorite hunky werewolf Joe Manganiello appeared on Conan O'Brien Tuesday night to talk about, among other things, stripping. First thing's first: the name. The name can make or break a career, and the one that would set Conan down the path of stardom is "Big Red", because he's "here to pillage your village."

Then, of course, there are the dance moves which Manganiello was only too happy to share. You can watch the lesson and take notes of your own AFTER THE JUMP...

'True Blood' RECAP - 'Fire In the Hole' [Spoilers]

Tb_manganiello

This week's installment of True Blood featured a lot of the things that viewers hate about the series (a bunch of random new characters, overcomplicating plot lines with Vampire politics, a stupid Civil War-era flashback), and yet it was still a great episode. 

We'll dish on tonight's most shocking death in a bit, but suffice to say the final season's ongoing thinning of the ensemble has successfully upped the stakes. It really feels like no character is safe. Plus, we got the return of Anna Camp's Sarah Newlin. Sure, she's a bit more subdued than we last saw her, but she was absolutely the best thing about last season, and I could not be happier she's back. Hide your stillettos, because I'd wager it shan't be long before we see Newlin at her most unhinged.

There were enough deaths tonight to warrant this episode's own In Memoriam montage. So, get ready to pour one (or two or three) out for those that didn't make it to the end credits, AFTER THE JUMP ...

The Men Of 'La Bare' Reveal What's Behind the 'Magic Mike' Fantasy

_DSC7996

With a sequel and a stage musical in development, we haven’t seen the last of Magic Mike. If you need another fix of rippling abs and gyrating hips in the meantime, look no further than La Bare, a new documentary directed and produced by Magic Mike star Joe Manganiello.

The film, which hit theaters this weekend, follows the dancers at a Dallas, Texas strip club. For those who have watched Magic Mike nearly as many times as I have, some elements of La Bare will feel very familiar. The costumes, the dance routines, even some of the characters of La Bare feel as if they were ripped from scenes of Magic Mike. [There’s a number with the guys (temporarily) in black raincoats with umbrellas, and La Bare’s elder statesman, Randy “Master Blaster” Ricks, bears more than a passing resemblance to Matthew McConaughey’s character, Dallas.]

In a case of life imitating art imitating life (Magic Mike was loosely based on Channing Tatum’s own stripper past), one dancer was inspired to audition to work at La Bare after seeing Tatum stripping on screen. He now goes by the stage name “Channing.”

“Watching how insane all the women went whenever Channing Tatum came up on stage, seeing how crazy they all got watching him was really inspiring,” La Bare’s Channing said.

We spoke to Channing and fellow dancer Axl about what they love about the job, what customers do that drives them crazy and how they interact with male customers. See what they had to say, AFTER THE JUMP…

'True Blood' RECAP - 'I Found You' [Spoilers]

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 7.06.31 AM

I want to begin this week by thanking the man or woman responsible for somehow sneaking in my Eric (Alexander Skarsgård)-Jason (Ryan Kwanten) slash-fiction into the True Blood writers’ room. It made no sense and was completely unnecessary (just a dream sequence), but I certainly wasn’t complaining.

In addition to that scene, there were enough holes in tonight’s episode (plotholes! get your mind out of the gutter!) to remind viewers that this is True Blood, after all, and it’s best not to think too hard about it. 

Let's relive some of this week's insanity, AFTER THE JUMP ...
