Queer Eye for the Straight Girl cast, the Gal Pals, which includes one woman.
The group of people that will begin making over women on Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Girl have been announced. Collectively known as The Gal Pals, they’re three gay men and one woman. The woman, Honey Labrador (Is that really her name and not her porn star name? Damn.), fills the role of “The Lady,” reminding her male colleagues that they’re working with females and “touching on all categories as they relate to women.” The other three are Damon Pease, “The Locale” expert; Robbie Laughlin, “The Look” expert; and Danny Teeson, “The Life” expert. Who knows what they’ll actually do besides make bitchy comments. The one-hour series debuts in January.
