Hal Sparks accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and he challenged his Queer as Folk costar to do it also. While that is all good and fine, it was how he described Gale Harold that I have a huge problem with. He chyroned him as “Great Actor/Bad motorcyclist”. What is wrong with that? Back on October 14, 2008, he was in really bad motorcycle accident. So even though it is has been almost six years since the accident, a joke like that is never funny. It might be an inside joke between them; but the rest of us aren’t in on it, so people like me don’t find it funny at all.
Kind of how I feel about Hal’s humor. In ways, I think he is jealous of Gale. First, Harold is so much sexier than him and he has to know that is how most people feel. In addition, I’ve seen him to do his standup, I’ve seen Gale answer questions from the press, and the latter is so much funnier. Hal’s probably jealous because he says he describes himself as a comedian, but Harold is naturally funny.
I mean I can be reading too much into those four words on the screen, but how can you not?
But then again, I might be biased. I’ll admit I am fan of Gale Harold’s work and I make sure to see the TV shows he is on and the movies he is in. I can’t remember the last time I tuned in to see anything of Hal’s.
So I ask you again, was that joke funny or in bad taste?

A few weeks ago, a petition popped up online to bring Queer as Folk back as a reunion movie and today Showtime’s Entertainment President, David Nevins, answered whether or not he would consider doing it at the Showtime TCA Summer Press Day.
The timing is perfect for the reunion because back in May, it became legal for sex-same marriages to happen in Pennsylvania. So that means Ben and Michael could legally get married in the US. Back when the show was on the air, they had to go to Canada to become Mr & Mr.
It would be a great thing to bring back our Pittsburg gang now, after all the advancements that have happened for LGBT rights since QAF ended in 2005. So is this something we could see back on TV in the future? He said, “No one ever pitched it to me.” Then he added, “But if it was a great idea, a compelling reason to do it. It is always possible.” Therefore, the ball is in CowLip’s corner, especially since almost everyone in the cast including Gale Harold, Sharon Gless and Scott Lowell would love to see it become a reality.
Nevins added that he heard that Russell T Davies, the creator of the British version, is working on a show called, Cucumber, for BBC and it’s being described as QAF 20 years later. He says that sounds interesting. Since the American version of QAF was remade from the British version, you never know what could happen?
At this point, all I want is to see Brian, Justin, Ted, Emmett, Ben, Michael, Deb, Melanie, Linz and Hunter together again. Who else is with me on that? If you are then, make sure to sign the petition now now now.
Although, if they wanted to do an updated QAF series, they could base it on Brian and Linz’s son, Gus. They would just have to age him they like age soap opera spawn.
Scott Lowell aka Ted Tweeted this photo of himself with Brian, Emmett and Ben aka Gale Harold, Peter Paige and Robert Gant having a boys night out yesterday and this girl is all giddy seeing them together.
Even though Queer As Folk ended in 2005, these four guys look as close as ever. Who knows maybe they were talking about doing a reunion episode? So much has happened for Gay Rights in the last 9 years, I think we need to see what they have been up to. And who they have been up to? Right?
BTW I have to add how much I love Gale’s longer curly hair. It really suits him, but then again what doesn’t? Actually, you know what, all of them look great! So great, they look just like they did on the series finale of the show that ended way too soon. Yeah, I am still bitter that Showtime cancelled the show and I don’t think I will ever get over it. Will you?
So there is a new video out and it is showing Gale Harold working as a waiter. So is the Queer As Folk hottie now serving people food for living? Nope he was just showing off his comedic side in the very funny bit Cafe Attitude on Funny Or Die.
Back when he was on The Secret Circle, I attended a press event with him and I couldn’t get over how naturally funny he was. So I asked him why he hasn’t done a comedy yet and he asked me if I had a script for him. I didn’t, but I am glad whoever wrote this bit did. I am happy that people can finally see this side of his sense of humor, like I did that day.
I want more comedy from him because who doesn’t love hearing him say in a NY accent (that turned me so on), “That’s funny, that’s what I said to my girlfriend last night in bed” when the Vegan said, “I won’t eat anything with a face!” It is our way of us hearing him talk dirty, something we don’t normally hear come out of his mouth. Let’s be real ladies, how many of us would take him any way we can in bed even if he didn’t do that thing he says he doesn’t do.
Now when it comes to where I would rather eat, Cafe Attitude or Cafe Graditude; the first one of course. Not because he would be waiting on every one of my needs, but that is so much more my style. Where would you prefer to eat?
Scott Lowell, Peter Paige and Robert Grant came out for a Gay & Lesbian Elder Housing event and Ted, Emmett and Ben look as close as they did when we got to know them on Queer as Folk. Can you believe that show ended in 2005 because they haven’t aged a day in 7 years!
I still miss that show, it was so groundbreaking and fun to watch.
Sharon Gless is 69 years young and I think the Queer as Folk mom gets younger looking ever year. Now I have to admit that I haven’t watched Burn Notice in a few years, so I can’t get over how fantastic she looks. I know she has been losing weight for a while, but wow just wow. Keep it up Cagney because you look just as great as when you worked with Lacey!
Queer as Folk’s Gale Harold, Peter Paige and Michelle Clunie all came out for the 9th Annual GLEH Garden Party and they looked great. Sadly no one photographed Brian Kinney, Emmett Honeycutt and Melanie Marcus together…:-( I would have loved to have seen that.
BTW am I the only one who can’t stop looking at Gale’s crotch? Nice bulge down there, maybe he is more like Brian than we thought…
Hal Sparks Tweeted this picture and said, “Allie got rescued today… and so did I ;)” Although I made fun of the Queer As Folk star because that picture made it so easy, he actually did a good thing. Sparks, his friend Richard Hunter and Operation Kindness rescued that homeless dog from a freeway in North Texas. According to DFW she has been a stray there for years, that was until she was rescued by them and now she is living in Operation Kindness’ no-kill shelter with Michael Novotny. If anyone knows someone that wants to adopt the pair, they can contact Operation Kindness. I wonder if Brian Kinney, Ben Bruckner and his mom Debbie gets dibs!
Before Sharon Gless was the mother of Michaels on Queer As Folk and Burn Notice, she was just a woman going on a date on The Bob Newhart Show. Wow how amazing does the 30 year old actress look with long hair in that 1975 episode?
