Boy Meets Boy star: “I felt betrayed”; Queer Eye for the Straight Guy debuts tonight.
The star of Boy Meets Boy, James, says he “felt betrayed” when he learned that some of his final three suitors might be straight, Newsweek reports. He says, “They told me they put the twist in there because they wanted straight people to watch. I said to them, ‘Well, you’ve played gay people as entertainment for straight people. Of course they’re going to watch.” The openly gay producer of the show, Douglas Ross, asks, “Why do gay people need to be protected from participating in reality shows with twists? I don’t see us as a victimized minority. We’re capable of handling this.” Newsweek also talks to one of the straight suitors, who says he found himself “crotch to crotch with this 6-foot-4 guy—who also turned out to be straight. I’m thinking, ‘Is my mother gonna see this?'” The show debuts July 29 on Bravo.
+ plus: Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy debuts tonight at 10 p.m.
