petitioners want Bravo to stop airing Queer Eye ep with comedian Alan.
“A group of die-hard-from-day-one fans of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” want Bravo “to halt ALL re-runs of” episode 111, which features Alan Corey. Their problem: While Bravo IDs him as a “real estate speculator” (which he apparently is, according to a Sunday profile in the New York Post; he owns and rents out an apartment), he’s also a comedian with his own web site who’s they’ve spotted on both NBC’s The Restaurant and NBC’s Meet My Folks. The petitioners tell Bravo, “your website clearly states that no actors should apply as straight guys for the show” and say “this episode is bad for your show, bad for the Fab 5 to be hoodwinked by a media whore who misrepresented who he was and bad for the network when he’s on twice in two shows pretending to be two different things.”
