    My Weird Experiences with Famous People Lately

    Just when you think you've seen and heard it all, it gets curiouser and curiouser, folks. First, I wrote up Hardcore Pawn as perhaps the worst, fakest reality show in all of Christendom. The publicist (whom I know and like) then emailed me that the stars are her clients. I prepared for a telling o ... More >>

    Joey, Sherry, And Flotilla Rocked It At Indochine

    Bar d'O was a gay-drenched downtown restaurant which lit up the '90s with a live, intimate cabaret show that was racy, soulful, and right up on your plate. The place closed, but fortunately it never really went away. For eight years, Indochine has been hosting Bar d'O reunion shows, and the one las ... More >>

    "You're The Top" Composer Was The World's Biggest Bottom

    It's no surprise that Cole Porter was the king of oral receiving. Anyone who pens "You're The Top" is obviously screaming out the fact that he's gonna be on his knees real soon. But I had no idea just how de-lovely and de-voted the classic songwriter's passion for oral was.

    Cary Grant Wasn't Gay, Says His Daughter

    ​In her new book, Good Stuff, Jennifer Grant says dad Cary Grant was about as gay as Cole Porter. (I mean the Cole Porter he played in Night and Day). "Of course, Dad somewhat enjoyed being called gay," she adds. "He said it made women want to prove the assertion wrong. "When asked if Dad w ... More >>

    Anything Goes On Broadway: How Goes It?

    ​Anything Goes has one of the best scores in musical history, along with one of the silliest books. Classic Cole Porter tunes like "You're The Top" and "I Get a Kick Out Of You" are dropped into a screwball shipboard plot involving people hiding, others chasing, and a dog missing, all leading ...

    In Praise of Ovaltine

    ​"You're Keats, you're Shelley, you're Ovaltine," goes the Cole Porter song You're the Top. Although you can buy your own tub of the malted milk powder at the supermarket, it's more fun to grab a warming cup of it at any Hong Kong-style cafe or bakery, where, among the buttered toast sandwiche ...
