Every now and then, I like to pull a comment that ruffled some feathers and respond to it. Normally, I let things roll off my back because I am such a calm and easy-going kind of person. My post about Reichen Lekmkuhl really upset one Anonymous person and it was just crying out for a response.
Ouch, Anonymous. That really hurts my feelings. I have to say Reichen is not more famous for his military service and gay rights advocacy, neither of which I intend to diminish. But let’s be honest. We had never heard of him before he won the fucking reality show, so in truth that is what he is famous for. I called him a famewhore, this is true. Then you tried to insult me by calling me one too. Guess, what. I already admitted that about myself in that same post, so I’m rubber you’re glue. Whatever you say bounces off me and sticks right up your ass. But he is kind of a famewhore, right? Doesn’t he have another reality show just about to start and in all the ads he’s in a bathing suit? If you do a Google image search of Reichen (here, I’ll do it for you), you see a lot of him with his clothes off. I don’t really see him in his military uniform and doing book signings that often. Not that I blame him for posing in his underwear all the time. If I looked like that, I’d be naked all the time too. Hell, I would never buy clothes again. And about his play? Sorry. I didn’t like it. It aimed for the lowest common denominator to get laughs and relied on heavy stereotypes. I read several other reviews that agreed with me. His acting was a bit wooden but I commended the way he looked in his underwear as did almost every other review that was written. And as for you feeling sorry that such a good guy had to be so close to my miserable bitter queen company? Don’t feel bad for Reichen for being in the same restaurant as me. He doesn’t know me. He didn’t know I was there, and I am sure that his evening was not spoiled by the fact that he was in close proximity to me. In fact, I am fairly certain that he was not affected at all. He’ll be fine.
Thanks for the comment, though. I always love when I am able to push a button in someone and make them want to write out a sentence or two to share their thoughts. Thank you for exercising your first amendment right by saying whatever the hell you feel like saying. That’s what I do too. On my blog: The Bitchy Waiter.
