This show takes electrifying flight When Anthony Wayne is singing, channeling “The Queen of Disco” Sylvester. And since there is more singing than talking in this show, Mighty Real spends most of its time soaring through disco heaven.
The View returned to ABC on Monday for the 18th Season with a new group of co-hosts, a new studio and new look. Whoopi Goldberg, who first joined The View in 2007, was the only returning co-host from last season. Rosie O’Donnell re-joined the show after leaving the moderator’s seat just before Whoopi stepped in. The View also has two new faces as actress Rosie Perez and Republican political advisor Nicolle Wallace join the team.
The first episode of season 18 was a bit more subdued that the media had predicted it would be. Most of the show was spent introducing the new co-hosts as veterans Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg seemed to spend time feeling out the chemistry around the new table.
The headline will probably be “The View Season 18 begins without a bang,” but as someone who has always loved The View… I’m going to dissect the first episode a little with my thoughts on what we saw on day one.
September 11th is a day of remembrance, not just in New York City but around the world. As our Throwback Thursday, GaySocialites.com wants to share this beautiful picture of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and the Lower Manhattan skyline prior to 9/11/01.
For her first long cabaret run in two years, Christine Ebersole returns to 54 Below with a glorious new show. What really distinguishes this show from her previous cabaret turns (they’ve all been glorious) is the touch of Musical Director Bette Sussman, who brings with her a big, rock-ish band and a jazz-pop polish reminiscent of arranger William S. Fischer’s work on the classic Bette Midler album The Divine Miss M (Sussman has collaborated with Midler herself on more than one occasion). In any event, and in case you didn’t know, I am here to tell you that Christine Ebersole is faaaaaabulous!
