John Amaechi kicks things off for us this week, and let me just say it’s nice to see we’re not the only one’s addicted to Matt Alber’s “End of the World” video:

Moving a little closer to home, it looks like Jai Rodriguez had some fun during a recent production of Rent:

And speaking of the theatre, how many of you will just die when Michael Urie and company actually hit the stage with this?

Meanwhile, Chris Colfer and the rest of the Glee kids are already prepping for spring’s new episodes, and it looks like Kurt is going to be just as fabulous as ever:

7 Sneak Peeks – Ugly Betty 4.09 "Be-Shure"

7 December 2009 6:45 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

December 11th marks the final Ugly Betty episode before its holiday hiatus and the Suarez familiy are celebrating Christmas.  This will be the last Ugly Betty to air on Friday nights, as it will be moving to Wednesday nights starting in January.  Check out the seven sneak peeks released by ABC below and view the photos I previously posted.

"Be-Shure" – Against the backdrop of Ignacio's multi-culti holiday dinner that he prepares for his new flame Jean (Faith Prince), who is Jewish, Betty and Hilda have pregnancy scares. Worse, they purchase their Be-Shure instant pregnancy tests from the local pharmacy — where Jean works and Ignacio is shopping. Meanwhile, Hartley installs Willie's replacement, a clueless Hollywood mogul, Denise Ludwig (Nadia Dajani), whose claim to fame is a tacky movie, but Marc has a plan to get Willie back — if only Daniel will agree. And Claire gets Amanda's help and tracks down Tyler »

In other important news, Madison Hildebrand had a big announcement on this week’s Million Dollar Listing:

And of course the good folks over at the NOH8 campaign were right there behind him:

But not all of the tweets this week were so serious. Alec Mapa continues to send out lol-worthy tweets:

Chris Colfer also had me lol’ing, (followed by feverishly googling the lyrics to make sure I wasn’t laughing at myself!):

And Jay Brannan sent out a very “duh” tweet:

Speaking of Jays, Jay Manuel (perhaps better known as Mr. Jay from America’s Next Top Model) updated us on the newest season of Antm:

30 November 2009 11:01 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I'll admit right now that I am not caught up on season 4 of Ugly Betty, so I'm not sure whether this synopsis will be spoilery or not, but some of you may want to just skip to the photos instead.  Or, if you choose not to read this, then at least check out the photos for the December 4th episode of Ugly Betty.  If you don't mind some spoilers, then check out the synopsis and promo photos below for the December 11th episode.

Ask the Flying Monkey! (October 5, 2009)

4 October 2009 7:44 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Have a question about gay male entertainment? Send it to aftereltonflyingmonkey@yahoo.com! (Please include your city and state and/or country.)

Q: I´ve been reading the Kathy Griffin book and while it was much less fun than I was hoping for, there was something that really annoyed me -- besides the fact that in her world "the gays" is a synonym for hair dresser or shopping buddy. Kinda makes me wish she´d actually let me at her hair to change that attitude. Anyway, in the book she says that Andy Dick got punched in the face by Wesley Snipes for using (and I quote) "the n-word" in a club. Later there is another Dick story about one of his stand-up appearances where he called the audience repeatedly (and I quote again) "faggots.” So why isn´t it "the n-word" and "the f-word" Or "nigger" and "faggot"? -- Thomas, »

Ugly Betty 3.21- Born Identity

Guest starring  Rasche as Calvin Hartley, Derek Riddell as Stuart, Ralph Macchio as Archie Rodriguez and Alec Mapa as Suzuki St. Pierre.

Well, okay so it wasn’t too hard to guess what this episode would be about. The title was rather forthright on that score…

And indeed. Meade Publications is ready to party with Cal Hartley making time in his busy schedule to give Mead Publications its bailout.  Betty is at the bar where Stuart and Christine are… »
