A-List: NY Reflections // A-List: Dallas Update
Over the past week, I've written a couple different times about A-List: Dallas personality Taylor Garrett and the alleged act of vandalism that occurred at his home. He tweeted that someone had thrown a rock through his window -- presumably angered by his involvement with anti-gay conservative GOProud Advisory Board honorary chair Ann Coulter. Pretty quickly, there were criticisms that he hadn't reported the incident to the police. Instead of responding directly to those concerns, he and several people associated with The A-List: Dallas clammed up and yanked their rock-oriented tweets.
Taylor Garrett finally broke his silence a couple days ago and spoke with the Huffington Post about the vandalism. He reports that the police were indeed contacted last Friday. However, it was reported by his building manager. Since he hadn't made that report, his name wasn't associated with the report. He eventually filed his own police report on Monday. Garrett could've deflated this mess nearly a week ago if he'd explained about the building manager's police report. Then again, he and Logo couldn't have milked this controversy for 5-6 days if he had.
Moving on, I finally watched the last episode of The A-List: New York's second season. This is what got under my skin this season:
*I don't get Nyasha's role on the show. I mean, I guess I do. She's a loud, self-centered diva who heats up without any provocation. And she added lots of drama to the show. But surely Logo could find a lesbian (or at least a bi-girl) to fit that role.
*The guys all pulled dick moves for skipping out on Austin's and Jake's bachelor party weekend. They were all in Atlantic City for two competing events (the bachelor party and Nyasha's singing gig). They all felt morally opposed to Austin's marriage because of cheating rumors being spread by Derek and Rodiney. Reichen and Ryan eventually "confronted" Austin the night of his party. They had been gossiping and fretting over this flawed relationship for days, but couldn't actually ask him about it until the night of the event when he's already two sheets to the wind? Total. Dick. Move.
*I don't get Mike's roll in this show. His involvement usually involves one of three things: 1. Photo-shoots of celebrities; 2. Hanging out with his hot boyfriend and cool dad; or 3. Telling the boys to mind their own business. He hardly ever appears with any of the other A-Listers anymore. Fortunately, for his integrity, he's leaving the show after this season.
*Lastly, I'm am sick of hearing about Austin being fat. He is not fat. He is no where close to being fat. Enough with the "Austin is fat" meme.
Thus ends my venting about The A-List; New York... at least until next season.
