Logo’s new reality show, The A-List, is TV’s first all-gay cast that follows six gay men in New York City that are obviously “A-Listers”.
Throughout the show, which airs October 4, 2010 on the Logo Channel, we get a good glimpse of what it’s like for these modern day Gays living in NYC as they take us through their days filled with insecurities, love, sex and every-day drama they perceive and create in their own lives life.
Follow along as we see a 7-month old relation blossom between Reichen Lehmkuhl, 36 and his Brazilian Beau, Rodiney Santiago, 28. There was something so convincing during the show that this gay romance had spark, until they introduced another member of the cast, Austin; looks like trouble for the romantic duo–and I can’t wait.
We’re also introduced to Modeling Agent, Derek Lloyd Saathoff, 27 , who admitted to me during an exclusive interview, he loves to stir the pot and create drama for his other cast mates. He’s one to really keep your eye on. And don’t think about getting on his bad side, I think he carries a knife and isn’t afraid to “cut a bitch!”
Now, Austin Armacost, 22 is a Model turned fashion connoisseur–what that means exactly, I don’t know–I think he credits his time sleeping with Marc Jacobs on his resume–child, you know I would. But he ends up creating tension for Reichen Lehmkuhl and Rodiney Santiago. He and Reichen used to play a game of penis kisses a while back and old feeling have surfaced. While I interviewed Austin, he was very vocal about Rodiney and stated several times that he doesn’t trust him and he thinks he’s a better fit for Reichen. I love his claws, he had them sharpened for the show!
Mike Ruiz, celebrity photographer wasn’t able to make the premier screening, but I can’t wait for the opportunity to meet and interview him. He’s a hottie–and according to Rodiney, he’s like a brother, a “hot”older brother. Oh la la, I think I’ve seen that porn before!
And lastly but not least, we have Ryan Nickulas, 30, Salon owner in New York City who was just amazing. He and his best friend TJ Kelly, his assistant, were the two cast members I related to mostly and wanted to see more of. The duos dynamic was fun, catty, and educational. Who knew you could say “delicious” when you mean to really hate something in life? Thanks, boys!
