The Best or Worst News of the Day

Depending on which side of the sexuality spectrum you fall on, the following piece of news will either be the best or worst thing you’ll hear on Valentine’s Day.

America’s and arguably the world’s most handsome television actor, Matt Bomer, is gay. Straight ladies, I’ll give you a moment to get some tissues to dry your eyes with. Gay men, you can just settle down, we don’t need you rubbing this one in our faces. I’m having a lame enough week as it is!

On Saturday when Bomer was accepting a Steve Chase Humanitarian Award for the Desert AIDs Project he thanked Simon and his three children from the stage.

Obviously he wasn’t that in the closet considering he has three kids with his partner Simon. This is just one less celebrity that I stand a chance with you guys. I mean, I’m becoming more practical in my old age when it comes to celebrity crushes; I barely have the energy to get emotionally involved if i know they are dating someone or married. But gay? Pining after a gay guy just makes me look delusional! And that’s no good.

I’m this close to pulling a “Just One of the Guys.” Well, if he breaks up with his man. I don’t want to be a beef thief.

So, gay men, you win this round! But we still have Ryan Gosling. And you are sorely mistaken if you think I’m going to let that happen. You will have to pry him from my cold, dead, hands.

Vintage Al Pacino

That’s right, everyone’s favorite part about Sunday is back! It’s Vintage Crush time! For those of you just joining us, I suggest you take a look here, here, and here to get a feel for what this is all about. This is where I take the time to talk about some older guys that I feel are deserving of a little bit of crushitude.

This week, I gift you all with Vintage Al Pacino.

A while back I went on a bender of old Al Pacino films. Can we just talk about how good Dog Day Afternoon and Serpico are? Those are some quality films. His a little man, but packs a lot of punch and has the kind of charismatic energy that I love in a person. I have to say that my Vintage Crush on Pacino is fairly recent, it developed in the past handful of years (unlike my crush on Van Damme which has followed me from childhood). Now that I’m a mature, adult woman, a self-assured man like Pacino is very attractive. Back in the day he had it going on. Style, personality, talent, everything. These are the kind of qualities that I think actors of this generation are slightly lacking in. There’s the odd few, but it definitely existed more in the 70s.

Men, take note: This is how wear sunglasses.

Some basics according to IMDB:

Full Name: Alfredo James Pacino

Born: April 25, 1940 in New York, New York

Height: 5’7″ (Him’s just a little guy!)

Films/Television: He’s acted in 49 titles, produced and directed 3, and written 2.

Awards: He’s one 35 awards and been nominated for 41. He had six, six Oscar nominations before he finally won for Scent of a Woman. He’s also been nominated for three Razzie awards. The man is nothing if not diverse.

…and if I had a time machine, you can bet I would be all over Pacino. But I did have the misfortune of seeing Righteous Kill (they can’t all be winners, I know). He’s also sort of taken a turn for the troll. He might also be indulging a little too freely in the self-tanner. Also, he looks slightly crazy. But! Set that time machine to 1974 and I’ll in line with the all the other groupies.

Here’s a few more pictures for the road. These are from Serpico. When he looked super hot. Hipster-looking guys in the 70’s were definitely not as gross as they are now.

I Owe You One, Whitney.

The Associated Press just broke the news a little while ago that the star of the Preacher’s Wife, Whitney Houston has passed away.

This is pretty sad news. We all knew she was troubled and had some pretty big problems with substance abuse, but everyone loves a comeback and that’s what we were hoping for. Unfortunately, that dream ended this evening.

As sad as this news is, it broke at just the right time. I know that sounds like, really, really bad, buuuuuttttttt, I was one a date that was sort of circling the drain (I paid for our drinks and he didn’t even say thank you!) and when he went to the bathroom, I checked Facebook and BAM! I had my out. Those three words “RIP Whitney Houston” were like a shining beacon of hope.

He came back and I said, “Whitney Houston DIED!” I acted deeply saddened and said I should probably get going.

Whitney Houston basically provided me with the perfect escape plan. And for that, I owe her everything.

You will be missed and I hope you’ve finally found someone to dance with, girl.
