They’re only up there for a limited time, so watch ‘em while you can.
Growing up, I was an easy target for bullies. I was a chubby, gay kid who preferred watching musicals to playing football. I was an outsider who never really fit in.
A few years ago, Willie Nelson released an iTunes single called “Cowboys are Frequently Secretly Fond of Each Other.” As a novelty tune prompted by the popularity of BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, it hardly represented a serious attempt to introduce gay subject matter into country music. But, in its own jocular way, it did break through a verboten barrier for the genre and cause some folks in Nashville to look around at each other and think: Just how many music-industry “cowboys” are we talking about here? And just how necessary is the secrecy?
If you’re ever in Nashville and looking to party, you should probably connect with these two. Tenisha and Jared were made for each other so there is no doubt that our revolutionary dating site GIRLS SEEKING BOYS SEEKING BOYS would’ve matched them up in a heartbeat. We’re guessing their first date would involve a little bit of tequila, and a lot of drama. So, check out how these two would present each other.
Life has seemed rather dull lately, hasn’t it? Well, Joe Zee is here to save us. ALL ON THE LINE returns on November 25, but you don’t have to wait to get your fill of fashion rehab. Joe Zee and SUNDANCE CHANNEL are teaming up with YouTube to make sure you’ve got enough AOTL to get you through Thanksgiving.
Our Girls Seeking Boys Seeking Boys dating site is a hit. Up next we’ve got Sherrié and Shane to contend with. These two are a perfect example of why meeting your best friend through an internet profile is probably the way to go. You need a best friend who knows what you’ll need after a Saturday night out, whether it’s a Bloody Mary or a ride to church. So, read on for Sherrié and Shane’s profiles…of each other.
Surprise! It looks like we’ve got a Drama Queen on our hands this season.
From eHarmony to Grindr there are plenty of ways to find a mate, a date or, um, whatever the polite term is for what guys use Grindr for. But, what about finding the perfect best friend? SUNFILTERED dreamt up a
Nobody provides water cooler fodder than the hottest hot messes in Hollywood. We love ‘em to little bits and crushed-up, little, prescription medication pieces simply because they can’t seem to stop…screwing up. Lindsay posing in Playboy? Like Marilyn? Again? Courtney Stodden is getting her breasts examined on national television? I don’t get it–does bleach leak into your brain? Of course, instead of dipping into the schadenfreude we could be real pals and get these ladies and gents some help…in the form of a gay man, of course. Nothing says intervention quite like one of our beloved gay boyfriends telling us to wake up and smell the vodka all over our clothes!!
What, our Twitter premiere wasn’t enough? You want more GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS? Well, try this one on for size, you can watch the premiere online right now or any episode whenever you want (after its premiere, of course). Better yet, you can watch it with friends, lovers, frenemies or total strangers whose snark makes you snarf.
Here is a GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS first! Peter and Kristin met on a dating website. And then they went on a date. Obviously, it didn’t work out. While they failed at romance, they succeeded in becoming instant BFFs.
What do you get when you mix two frustrated, country music singer-songwriters, a Broadway show and a little bit of love for the Lord? The Nashville stylings of Sherrié and Shane! These two thought they’d reached the end of the line on their singing careers when fate intervened to bring them together and show them the way back to Tennessee–where they’re set for a season of making beautiful music together. Don’t believe us? Both have projects coming out this month, so you can listen for yourselves.
What do you get when you combine a certified southern belle and one of Nashville’s most out-there event planners? The dynamic duo of Olivia and Brent, obviously! And you can be sure that wherever these two Southern socialites show up the GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS drama is sure to follow (are those sirens we hear?).
If we’ve learned one thing over here at Sundance Channel, it’s that true friendships flourish at casual dining establishments. In high school there were late nights at the IHOP or Waffle House. In college we brunched at local diners and The Cheesecake Factory (don’t judge). Tenisha and Jared are two GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS Nashville besties who met waiting tables at Red Lobster.
BGBF–Your Best Gay Boy Friend. Sort of a cute little nickname, right?
I always thought my constant relationships with gay men were completely normal. Growing up in a liberal section of Westchester, New York, I did a lot of theater (I played a prostitute twice in high school, which I’m sure pleased my parents endlessly). I watched my guy friends become my gay friends as they started to slowly come out of closets and admit to their worlds that they were homosexual. It was simply what happened, and I didn’t pay much attention to it. Why? Because I was worried about my own sexuality, specifically my own lack of sexuality while I tried to get any guy to want to kiss my slobbery, brace-filled face.
Put down that Pumpkin Spice Latte and step away from the glitter shadow, because the new season of GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS is coming out! Get a first look at the Nashville cast as they prepare to unleash their unique brand of southern-fried FIERCE on Sundance Channel.
Sundance Channel is set to loosen up the buckle on the Bible Belt with the explosive second season premiere of the critically-acclaimed hit series GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS on Friday, November 18th at 9 PM et/pt. The groundbreaking unscripted series that celebrates and explores the special relationship between women and their gay best friends moves to Nashville, Tennessee and the all new cast provides more drama and higher stakes than ever before. Each of these dynamic women is eschewing the traditions of their conservative Southern home-town with a rebel yell and a proud partnership with their GBFs. The women stand by their men and share laughter, love and unwavering support while experiencing life’s biggest milestones and challenges, even when the drama is overwhelming.
Sundance Channel announced today that the second
season of the hit series “Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys” will be set in
Nashville, Tennessee. New episodes of GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS are slated to premiere in late 2011.
These dynamic and dramatic southern women are eschewing tradition with a rebel
yell and partnering up with their gay BFFs – sharing laughter, love and support
with one another as they experience life’s big milestones.
I will admit that I am feeling extra sentimental lately. Yes, because ALL ON THE LINE wrapped its first season but it’s also most likely because I spoke at the commencement ceremonies of the Fashion Institute of Technology, my alma mater, recently. At the graduation festivities I concluded with the turning of the tassels and my parting words of inspiration, motivation and passion. Or at least I hope I did. I told the class of 2011, this was not the end of school. No, in fact, the learning will continue — for the rest of their lives. And I’m speaking from experience. Life education doesn’t end when the instructors have packed their papers and gone home. No, instead, their methods and reasoning will hopefully live on in everything you do. I wasn’t inspired by every instructor I ever had, but the ones that did affect me, stayed with me.
And in some ways, my personal success is a testament to them.
Cut to the AOTL designers.
BEGINNING NOVEMBER 2011
Original Series Starring Creative Director of Elle Joe Zee
Will Conclude its First Season on May 24th
New York, May 24, 2011 – Sundance Channel announced the renewal of ALL ON THE LINE, the fashion-rescue series starring Creative Director of ELLE Joe Zee. The series wraps its first run on Tuesday, May 24th at 10:00PM ET/PT.
Since the series premiered in March, Sundance Channel has exposed viewers to the always intense and not so glamorous, behind-the-scenes world of fashion designing. Behind the glamour of the red carpet are tears, hard work and passionate designers struggling to shine in a world of hopefuls. In the second season, Zee will be faced with the daunting task of working with a new group of designers with the same problem; a glitch in their design or business that is putting them at risk of losing it all. He hopes to encourage designers to stay true to their vision, while recognizing when their design or business plan is standing in the way of their commercial success. Feeling like experts in their own right, not all of the designers will be up for the challenge of accepting Zee’s constructive criticism, causing tension and sparking emotion.
Sundance Channel EVP and GM Sarah Barnett commented, “ALL ON THE LINE stands out among fashion programs because it’s based in the real world, with real stakes and real results. Viewers have embraced this authenticity, are enamored with the unpretentious fashion genius Joe Zee and look forward to seeing him back in action.”
