straight guy selling Queer Eye furniture.
One of the Queer Eye straight guys is unloading some of the stuff he got free from the show. As Gawker noticed, he’s selling “a West Elm square block coffee table” on eBay, but only to people in New York City who can pick it up. With five days remaining, the current bid is $20.50. Why is he unloading it? He writes, “…unfortunately its just too big for my space and I have to give it up.” Apparently, apostrophes also take up too much space. So who’s coffee table is this? He remains anonymous, but teases that he’ll “throw in a paint pen if you can guess which one of the Straight Guys I am.” Ooh, a paint pen. Get out your tapes of past episodes.
+ also: A New York Times reporter has to pay for the stuff he got when Thom made over his apartment for an episode of Oprah.
