‘Ellen’s Design Challenge’ Winner Disqualified in Dramatic Finale Twist

1 hour ago

Spoilers exist below. If you have yet to watch the series finale of Hgtv’s “Ellen’s Design Challenge,” stop reading now. Well, that was a short-lived victory for furniture designer Tim McLellan. Hopefully he didn’t already spend that $100,000 prize money. The cowboy with a masculine sense of furniture design won Hgtv’s inaugural “Ellen’s Design Challenge” on Monday evening — until he didn’t. Shortly after the confetti dropped on McLellan, fellow finalist Katie Stout and executive producer Ellen DeGeneres, the last man standing was disqualified for presenting what was deemed an unoriginal piece in the grand finale. »

‘The Mystery of Love & Sex’ Theater Review: Diane Lane, Tony Shalhoub Hook Up With ‘Masters of Sex’ Writer

2 hours ago

Having written two biographies of gay men, I must confess that I don’t find coming-out-of-the-closet tales very interesting. There’s such a strict formula to the genre: The “I’m bisexual”ruse, the eventful First Time followed by lots of anonymous sex, the admission to family, that family’s rejection followed by some of the family’s acceptance, etc. In recent years, at least on stage, the “out” story line appears to have eclipsed the hetero “how I lost my virginity” version, which peaked with “The Summer of ’42” and has never recovered from the “American Pie” franchise.
