'Real' Talk with 'New Orleans' Alum Danny Roberts

18 September 2013 11:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

In this age of Kurt Hummel, Emily Fields and the dozens of other gay characters prominently featured on some of the most popular teen-skewing shows, it might strike twenty-somethings as crazy to hear there was a time when gay men and women were tougher to find on TV than a speck of glitter in a haystack.

Reality TV was one of the first mediums to actively capture the gay experience and share it with the world, particularly The Real World. From Pedro Zamora of The Real World: San Francisco to Genesis Moss of The Real World: Boston, MTV was breaking Lgbtq ground and educating America by putting a face to this long-overlooked portion of society long before their network counterparts.

Danny Roberts became one of the most beloved members of said community when he starred on The Real World: New Orleans in 2000. The adorable, then-22-year-old basically became the insta-crush of every gay (and »

The 11 Hottest Men of "The Real World"

21 March 2013 7:50 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

The Real World is donning flannel and boots for its upcoming Portland season, but to gear up for that premiere on March 27, I thought we'd take a look back at the show's cast members who were damn good at wearing not-so-many clothes. Here they are, the 11 hottest male cast members in Real World history. (You'll be happy to know the gays took over the list; I wasn't even forcing it!)

11. Eric Nies (New York)


Eric Nies introduced us to Real World hotness on the first season of the show, and he'd continue his hot streak with The Grind, where Queen Latifah once asked him how much he was paid to show off his nipples. The answer? Never enough, Dana.

10. Davis Mallory (Denver)


Denver! That was a caustic cast. Oh, Brooke! You have almost certainly killed someone before. Tyrie! You're diagnosable. And Davis! You are gay and good-looking and »

"The Real World" Super Cast: Let's Pick the 7 Best Cast Members to Live Under One Roof

19 March 2013 7:27 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

MTV is doing a blessed thing. With "RetroMTV," the network will be replaying three of the finest seasons of The Real World starting this Friday and continuing throughout Sunday, including the first New York season, the San Francisco season with Pedro Zamora, and the first Las Vegas season with Trishelle Cannatella. I hope that sentence filled you with the adrenaline of a thousand jars of stolen peanut butter, because I'm tweaking over here.

It's all in anticipation for The Real World: Portland, which begins March 27.

This happy occasion proves the opportunity for another: Let's create a Real World supergroup, an ideal cast composed of seven of the best housemates in the show's history. I'm basing my picks on the cast archetypes that are most important to me, but if you come up with your own casts in the comments, feel free to change the categories to your liking. »

Darryl Stephens' 'Pants Drop'-ing New Stage Role In "A Family Thing"

15 February 2013 6:07 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Darryl Stephens finds himself in bed with Sean Wing in A Family Thing.

Darryl Stephens isn't resting on his laurels as we collectively wait to see if his series Dtla returns to Logo. Instead, he dove headfirst into a juicy part on the Los Angeles stage in the new play A Family Thing.

Presented by the Echo Theater Company, the play, by out playwright Gary Lennon (who also has extensive credits in film and TV) looks at a family of three estranged brothers – one a felon, one an addict and the other a writer (who happens to be gay) and what happens when they come back together. With much humor to balance out some of the play’s heavier moments, the focus is on the idea that family is the thing that brings us together as well as what tears us apart. Hopefully the production will also convince people that »

(L to r) Tippi Hedren, Darryl Stephens, Julie Newmar, Ray Ford

I couldn't resist an invitation to the Gay & Lesbian Elder Housing (Gleh) Golden Globes viewing party thanks to the presence of its Lifetime Achievement Award honoree Julie Newmar, the Tony-winner and original Catwoman on TV's Batman, and "Black and Gold" dance artist Sam Sparro, who performed at the event's venue, The Jim Henson Theatre in Hollywood. We caught up with a few attendees on the red carpet, including the purrrrrfect Newmar, the stunning Tippi Hedren, Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23's out gay star Ray Ford, and Noah's Arc alum and Dtla star Darryl Stephens

Julie Newmar

What are you looking forward to this evening?

I'm going to let the show surprise me! Are there any Brits here tonight? 

I just watched you as a mystery guest on What's My Line? You were sensational, and you created a funny character voice. »
