Cuff Complex Sordid Lives Viewing Tonight

Hey all you Seatle area fans. The Cuff Complex has their weekly Sordid Lives: The Series viewing tonight.

This is from Seattle Gay Scene Blog:

'Sordid Lives' - It's time for another episode
Posted by Bill W. on 9/17/2008 07:08:00 AM

It's that time again for another Sordid Hump Day!

This week on Sordid Lives it's "An Audacious Affair" - Bitsy and the bar gang decide to storm the church to confront the jury that wrongly convicted her. Brother Boy negotiates with Dr. Eve to continue therapy if he can perform as Tammy. Noleta is convinced G.W. is having an affair and Juanita shows up saying she has evidence of it in pictures.

Go to Cuff between 9pm and 9:30pm for Sordid Music and video trivia then at 10pm they will air the new episode of this week's Sordid Lives with a prize giveaway pack at the end of the show.

If you haven't had the chance yet to go to the Cuff for this event you are missing out on a lot of fun...

Margaret Cho's New Blog is Fucking Brilliant

Margaret Cho - honorary Sordid Lives team member - has posted a blog today that is worthy of a million reads. Here IS THE LINK.

But I've also copy and pasted it below:
Wednesday, September 17, 2008

I’m a Christian, you Fuckers

All kinds of Christians are getting mad about my Sarah Palin comments, and it is pissing me off.

First of all – you fucking fake Christians - don't fucking question my Christianity. I grew up in the church. My grandfather was a minister, who is with God now and talks to me in my dreams from God's corner office. I am a former Sunday school teacher. I taught the Bible to children and showed them how to love God and invite him into their hearts. I believe in God – but I don't fear him. God is my best friend. God is my ally. God is my boyfriend. God is my best fag. I am God's fag hag cuz didn't you know, God is a big fag. Serious bottom too. Butch in the streets, femme in the sheets. That is my God. God is my biggest fan. God gets me, dude.

God wants us all to just get along. He doesn't give a shit about the profanity. The bitch fucking invented profanity. He thinks it is hilarious. He just wants you to talk to him, and he doesn't care what you have to say. He just wants to keep the conversation going. Like Jay-Z, he just wants to love you. He just wants you to be able to make your own decisions. God is all about you and what you need. God is happy that you are gay. God made you fucking gay cuz he thinks it is awesome. God understands if you need to have an abortion. That is why he created abortion, on the 8th day. God accepts. God forgives. God loves all of us, even though some of us might have a problem with each other.

Don't fucking question my Christianity you fucking idiot assholes. If you continue to have a problem, then talk to God about it, not me, you fucking racist homophobic misogynist fake Christian shitheads. God thinks it is funny that I swear so much. He said I could use his name in vain or whatever. He just wants me to use it. He loves me. So fuck you. And I guess he loves you too. Even though you are fake Christian assholes. If you were truly Christians, you would let gays get married, and send them fucking presents from Bed Bath and Beyond!

If you truly believed in Jesus, you would try to be like him and love us, fags and dykes and feminists all. God bless you, even you. You fucking fuckers.

Calpernia Vlogs About Drinks with Jason Dottley

from Calpernia.com:
Busy day! There is a nice two page spread on my in the October 2008 edition of “Psychology Today” magazine! Yay, thank you! I also received a special gift from Syntaur and got photographed by the paparazzi with Jason Dottley of “Sordid Lives” in West Hollywood.

Sordid Lives in the New York Times

From the New York Times:

10 P.M. (Logo) SORDID LIVES: THE SERIES Bitsy (Olivia Newton-John) and her gang decide to storm the church; Brother Boy (Leslie Jordan) makes a deal with Dr. Eve (Rosemary Alexander); and Noleta (Caroline Rhea) thinks G. W. (David Steen) is cheating. Meanwhile in Los Angeles, Ty (Jason Dottley) begins sessions with Dr. Ray O’Light (Candis Cayne), his 19th therapist in two years.

Not from the NY Times (but should be, okay!)

Rue McClanahan and Sordid Lives on Perez Hilton

This is not a new posting but I somehow NEVER saw it until I was searching for Sordid Lives tidbits for the blog! What a great plug for the show!

I can't wait for the sex scenes with Rue!

Read about Perez's lunch with Rue HERE:

Call Waiting Leaves Fans Waiting for More Sordid Lives!

Episode 6 last night was the best episode of the series so far. What brilliant writing on Mr. Shores part and we must all stand back in roaring appreciation and awe of the tour-de-force performance that was had by Ms. Ann Walker. She killed it! Every beep, every call, every F*ck was flawless. And all with her hair in a wrap!

My favorite line was when the hair stylist said, "You want me to grab you a Coke?", "Sure," Lavonda responds. "What kind?". Lavonda answers, "Dr. Pepper." only in the South!!!

New Newsletter from Del Shores Posted!

I'm on Del Shores mailing list for Sordid news and stuff and we just received the newest. I figured I'd just post it. If you want to join, just go to his official website.

I'll include a screenshot so you can appreciate the colors and pictures.

September 8th Carrie Shores (15 years old) Speaks on Prop 8
Sordid Lives Marathon & New Episode - Wed
Sunset Strips with Sordid Lives Cast in LA

I'm so proud of my daughter Caroline. She made a video expressing her view on Proposition 8 (the anti-gay marriage proposition in California). It's only 2:19 minutes. I would love it if you would watch a 15-year-old making a difference. (in picture: Jason, daughter Rebecca, me & Carrie). Click: CARRIE'S YOUTUBE to view.


The reruns are over and tomorrow you get the first five plus the new episodes featuring the amazing work of Ann Walker (LaVonda) who finds out about Mama and G.W. and tries desperately to stop the affair and all rumors with the most elaborate cover-up I've certainly ever written. The marathon begins at 7:30 (EST) and the new episode airs at 10PM.


Mr. Jordan takes a break from his tour to star in Sunset Strips, benefiting Aids Project Los Angeles and The Actors Fund. The show will feature some of the Sordid Lives & Southern Baptist Sissies Cast -- Newell Alexander, Rosemary Alexander, Anthony Cherry, David Cowgill, Ted Detwiler, Dale Dickey, Sarah Hunley and Scott Presley. Only VIP ($160) and Premiumseats ($100) are left. For tixs, Click: SUNSET STRIPS TIX. This promises to be one hot show for two great causes.

AND, don't miss Jason Dottley talk everything "Sordid"
with Shaun Daily Wednesday the 10th at 4PM (ET) -- BLOGTALKRADIO.

Inside Del Shores and Jason Dottley's Marriage: Daughter Carrie Vlogs on Gay Marriage and Her Family

OMG! I cried. I can't imagine having grown up in a gay family, in a world (or a city) that is so open and understanding of homosexuality that I were as free and brave as Del Shores' daughter Carrie. 15 years old, she vlogged today (and it was added to Jason Dottley's youtube channel, posted to his myspace blog and facebook pages earlier) about Proposition 8 in California which is a bill that aims to repeal the May Supreme court ruling to allow gay marriage. According to Carrie's Vlog, Del Shores and Jason Dottley will be legally renewing their vows on Oct. 26, their 5 year wedding anniversary. In her Vlog, you can see pictures and the invitation to their ceremony on the beach.

We must pass this on as Carrie and her message is so inspiring. We also can't let California law revert because we need their progress in order to help propel the rest of us in this country into a more gay-understanding society.

The Video is available in BEST QUALITY on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pv7m0NF90d8

The Sordid Lives Petition Passes 1000!!!

We are so excited to announce that the We Want More Sordid Lives petition has just surpassed 1000 signatures! We will be publishing and passing on all these notes Monday!

Here's a look at the statistics report for the petition.

The most exciting data to me is that 66% of all polled said they watched each episode over 2 times!!! 27% said they watched each episode 4 or more times! That's incredible!

Also, over 20% of the people watching Logo had to change cable providers in order to get Logo to watch Sordid Lives. DirecTV has a huge coup on this series because in small town and more conservative markets where the local cable provider will not add Logo, DirecTV is the only nation-wide way to access the show. And it doesn't appear that an itunes release is imminent as there hasn't been any word of it at all. DirecTV owes alot to Sordid Lives: The Series and Logo, apparently from this information.

click image for FULL SIZED view

You can view the signatures and read the comments provided at this link, but you start at the end of the list and have to page back until you get to #1.

Jason Dottey and T. Ashanti Mozelle Denied Gold Medals

Jason Dottley's youtube.com channel (youtube.com/jason1dottley) has exploded with original wacky content. He obviously takes a good dose of laughing at himself regularly and seems to have a great sense of humor. But it's T. Ashanti Mozelle who steals the scene in this bit of You Tube Gold.

Watch the video in HIGH QUALITY on youtube.com for a better quality shot.

If you can't wait:

Calpernia Addams Take the Win

Calpernia Addams has won the season two guest star poll. And she has won by a landslide. Don't mess with her fans!

Calpernia posted this lovely note on one of the posts that sums it all up:
Callie said...
Aww thanks, kids! We'd all LOVE to see Dolly, Delta and the others on the show, but I'm sure the superstars wouldn't have too hard a time convincing Del to bring them in, if they're available. On the other hand, a fresh-faced young actress like me needs every bit of help she can get! ;)

Thanks for the votes so far!

Calpernia Addams Adds Um! (and it's NOT Rigged)

Some moron has blogged that this new poll is rigged. Actually there is NO way to rig a Blogger.com poll. The simple fact is that Calpernia's fans have swooped in to give her the lead. She has videos on youtube with nearly a million views. I don't think that 200 hundred votes is that suspicious.

This is NOT a blog for negativity but I will be a big ole hypocrit and blast your ass if you get mean on this blog! So whomever wasn't big enough to sign his/her name to that comment on Calpernia's blog post, know that you are as wrong as George W. Bush these past 7 years!!!!!!

Now, if you'll excuse me... I've got a Labor Day party to throw!

Calpernia Addams 1 Millon Views

Calpernia Addams has posted a video on youtube.com that has received nearly 1 million views! That's phenomenal. It's a quick video about questions NOT to answer a transsexual. I found it very informative and if she may be making a Sordid Lives appearance next season, we should all familiarize ourselves with some good ol' fashioned transsexual guidelines.

From CalperniaAddams youtube.com description: After years of teeth-grindingly ignorant and insulting questions, Calpernia Addams finally snaps and shares her list of Bad Questions which you should never ask a transsexual. These are all real questions from real life!

Director's Cut: I edited this so that it gets to the point more quickly, cuts out some extraneous chatter and repeated information, and illustrates the "Do you date gay or straight guys?" question more simply with graphics. =)

Calpernia Addams Takes a Trans-sending Jump to the Top

I couldn't be happier to see one of my favorite celebs Calpernia Addams topping the new poll... as of today. This is proving to be the most voted on poll so far, so I'm not calling this one till it's over!

Look at how hot Calpernia looks.... MEOW!

Rue McClanahan in NY Times Today!

From the New York Times article about "An Urban Oasis", finding a place in the city that is more than just a city apartment. Rue talks about having a backyard!

from the NY Times:
“This makes New York possible for me,” said the hammock-rocking actress, Rue McClanahan, the Oklahoma-born “Golden Girls” co-star now in the new Texas gothic cable series “Sordid Lives.” After migrating from sunny California, Ms. McClanahan scored the seemingly impossible — a large backyard with hibiscus trees at an East Side doorman building.

Here is Rue with another Hollywood legend, Dustin Hoffman. Yummy!

The New Guest Star Poll: Dolly Parton Takes the Lead

Del Shores' provided us with a list of potential guest stars for next season's show. As of now, Dolly Parton has the lead, followed by a neck-and-neck Delta Burke and Whoopi Goldberg!

Keep Voting! This ones going to be big!

Beefcake Detwiler!

Ty's boyfriend "Jacob" who is played by the super hot Ted Detwiler, just made someone's Beefcake list... he sure tops mine!


When Is Caroline Rhea Gonna Pop!

Hasn't Caroline Rhea been pregnant for a long time? She glows with joy when I've seen her on TV or in pictures since she's been pregnant. Maybe she just really likes being pregnant?

I think she should name the child -- regardless of gender, it's the new milinium -- Noleta Lavonda Rhea. LOL

Levi Kreis Does Sordid Lives at Gay Mens Chorus LA with Sordid Cast in Attendance

from Youtube.com:

Google Gold: Craig Steven Snow at Karaoke!

Craig Steven Snow, Ty's very queeny play director, who's real name is Craig Taggart, who also was Sordid Lives the Series' costume designer, can be seen here in our newest Google Gold feature singing karoake at some place called Kenny's Karaoke.

Google Gold: Sordid Lives Press Junket!

Thanks to some random Flikr user, I found hundreds of pictures frmo the Sordid Lives NYC Press Junket. I think the pics were taken on a camera phone as their quality is shoddy. They are cool none-the-less. Rue looks like a GODDESS! And I love Olivia Newton-John and Caroline's shoes!

Google Gold: Sordid Newbies Are So Cute Together

I am starting a new section titled Google Gold and it's where I will be posting jewels I find on Google Image searches about Sordid Lives and the cast.

Here is a great picture of Jason Dottley and Caroline Rhea at the NNN Awards on Logo. Not only are they adorable together, they are quickly becomming breakouts for their new takes on Ty and Noleta. When Noleta brushed GW's hair with that hammer, I nearly peed myself. And I still can't watch Ty and Latrelle's phone call in episode five without tearing-up.

Episode Five: Everyone's Favorite So Far

Episode 5 won our last poll for "Favorite Episode So Far". Tune back in to Logo on September the 10th for a marathon of the first 5 episodes followed by the premiere of Episode 6!

Sordid Shows

I have decided to add yet another section, Sordid Shows. Here is where I will feature any promo material for local productions of Sordid Lives (the play).

I always find it funny to see their artwork, and if there's cast in the shot, I love to see who looks like what!

Here are 2 I've found online:

The first from Unhinged Productions.

The last one is too small for me to see the playhouse or production company info, sorry.

Sexy Sexy Sexy Sordid Stars

Hurry Vote! Caroline Rhea in Relly Awards on Regis and Kelly

OMG! I just watched Regis and Kelly and they had what I thought was a rerun on because it featured Caroline Rhea promoting Sordid Lives: The Series when I flipped past the channel. Turns out they are doing their Relly Awards!

Vote until MIDNIGHT TONIGHT for Caroline Rhea to be the Funniest Guest and get to come back on Regis and Kelly!

Click Here To Vote!

Damn Tivo!

I have tried, unsuccessfully, multiple times to Tivo Episode 4 of Sordid Lives the Series. I accidentally deleted the premiere episode and so I've only seen it once :( i usually watch an episode at least twice the first two days, sometimes twice the same night (episode 5 we watched three times, although I did pass out during #3). Anyway, my Tivo was set to record it last night, and I watched episode 3, again :), which played before 4, then decided to run out for Sushi to bring home and eat while I watched 4 on Tivo. I got home, skimmed my Tivo, and NO Sordid Lives Episode 4!!!! :(

I need these to come out on iTunes immediately!

I can't believe that Del Shores reads my blog. I knew he'd seen it because of his first email, but now that I know he reads often enough to suggest A NEW POLL!!!, he's gone and made me cyber-blush.

Sordid Lives is "Funniest Sitcom with Edge and Wit"


Logo’s Sordid Lives – The Series - takes that crazy white trash, small town , dysfunctional, hypocritical, bible waving, husband shooting, bar drinking, homophobic, gay loving, Tammy Wynette -Drag worshipping movie made in 2000 and brings it to the small screen.
Now I loved the movie! It was so out there funny, exaggerated humor that came so close to the truth that it made you laughed so hard you wanted to pee in your pants. It was that good. Maybe I just have a twisted sense of humor.

The premise of the movie was that it followed the lives of three sisters Sissy, LaVonda and Latrelle and their Drag Queen brother Earl “Brother Boy.” Brother Boy was institutionalized at the local mental institution since his younger years by his mother because of his homosexuality. However, sparked on by his idol, Tammy Wynette, he puts on shows for his fellow patients in her honor. Their mother died accidently when she tripped over the wooden foot of a younger married man she was having an affair with in a cheap motel.

This married man was the husband of the lady that lived next door in the trailer court next to one of the chain smoking sisters, who keeps snapping a rubber band on her wrist every time she has a nicotine craving. But wait there’s more. Olivia Newton John plays a tough talking guitar country singer at the local bar who had befriended the mother of the women. She even has a southern accent. She is no Sandra Dee! Oh and the most conservative of the sisters has a gay actor son who lives in New York who recently starred in an all nude (non-porn) off, off, off Broadway play. That was just a small snippet of the movie.

Back to the series… I have watched three episodes now. To tell you the truth, I was a bit disappointed at first that it started the movie plot over again with a few changes. We get to know the mother now. In the movie we never know her since she already died. She is played by Rue McClanahan (Golden Girls). Most of the original cast members have returned from the movie. New cast members have joined such as Caroline Rhea, Jason Dottley and David Steen.

My disappointment did not last for long. I love these characters and the writing is sharp and funny. Television allows for deeper story arcs and even better comedy. It seems like all the good shows are turning up on cable these days and not on the networks. The only thing sordid about Sordid Lives is you not watching it!

Sordid Lives in Repeats For 2 Weeks

thank you to the livejournal page "Noted from the Teacher's Desk" for this information about the next two weeks on LOGO concerning Sordid Lives: The Series.

Del Shores posted this on myspace:

Dear Sordid Friends:

LOGO has just informed us that due to Labor day and people generally being on vacation the last 2 weeks of August, there will be no new episodes of "Sordid Lives: The Series" for the next two weeks - September 3rd & 10th.
They are however re-running the first five, so just go to:


for all episode schedules.

There is a marathon of first five episodes on September 10th starting at 7:30 (EST) for anyone who really wants to play catch-up. I smell some viewing parties! Then new episodes resume (starting with 106 "Call Waiting" with a tour de force performance by Ann Walker!) on the 17th at 10PM.

Dumb Ass Reviews

I've decided to include a new section that highlights some really stupid reviews I've come across about Sordid Lives, whether it be the film, play or TV series. I realize that I probably shouldn't shine a light on such trash, but I think it's ironic:

First up from the Valdosta Daily Times (it is from the Editorial Column in reference to the papers article/review of the play):
"I found the article regarding ‘Sordid Lives’ to be very offensive. There is enough sordidness in everyday life without bringing it to the stage. If this is culture, God forbid that I ever become cultured."

Youtube Gold: Sordid's Chris Pudlo Gives Us 10 Minutes of Hysteria

Not only is Chris Pudlo, who plays a crazy mental patient in Sordid Lives the Series, a natural hottie, he's apparently got some mad character skills. Check out this 10 minute short film he just posted to youtube.com.
From Youtube:

Olivia Newton-John's Uncut "Dick"

It's no lie... she's written a hyterically funny song titled "You Look Like A Dick" for Sordid Lives: the Series and Del Shores has posted the full length version on his youtube.com page.
I'm loving this show more and more everyday!

Poll Winners!

The last two polls showed that "Listen to me you little pill poppin bitch" (said by Rue McClanahan's Peggy to Bonnie Bedealia's Latrelle) was everyone's favorite line so far and the original version of "Sordid Lives" is still your favorite Olivia Newton-John track from Sordid Lives: The Series!

A new poll is coming soon!

Sordid Lives Ep 5 The Best Yet

God, dead goats, waxed vajajays, and a scene with Ty and his mother than would make a straight man cry all were icing on the Sordid Lives cake in last nighths premiere of Episode 5. I really must commend Logo for having found such a ground-breaking show. My mom and her her straight friends watch it weekly and even my dad, who likes nothing with a ball or an umpire in it, loves the show.
Sissy is quickly becomming my favorite character, followed by Noleta, Brother Boy, Ty and Lavonda. It's so hard to even love any one more than the others they are all so wonderful.
I want to know what YOU thought of last nights episode!

David Steen Beats Up Beth Grant

The new G.W. David Steen is a part of the Del Shores' acting troupe for sure. He starred in Del Shores' most recent play which I've copied a synopsis of below.

I love him as G.W. With all due respect to Beau Bridges, this new incarnation is perfect. He's sexy in a trashy way, he's mean, he's funny and he stays chop for chop with Caroline Rhea which is no easy task considering how brilliant she is as Noleta. The new Nethercott's are fabulous. Well, that could never be the right word for a Nethercott.

Here's David Steen in a production still from Del's play "The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife" with Beth Grant (Sissy) who won every award in theatre in Los Angeles for her leading tour-de-force performance.

The Trials and Tribulations
of a Trailer Trash Housewife

Del Shores’ 2003 play explores the hidden emotions, shame, and secrecy of battered women, while also offering hope, healing, and truth. A delicate blend of frightened humor and pain, the three act play delves right into the heart of abuse. From hysterical highs, to the depths of tragic lows, the play sweeps the emotional spectrum. Shores draws the audience into the fire, allowing them to experience the emotion from all sides… the abuser, the abused, and the powerless bystander.

Beth Grant stars as "Willadean Winkler" a mother of two children (a deceased daughter, and an adult gay son) who is trapped in a loveless marriage with "J.D. Winkler" (David Steen), a struggling truck driver who is lost in unrealistic adolescent athletic dreams. Set in Mesquite Texas, they live in a trailer park next to Willi’s best and only friend, "La Sonia" (Octavia Spencer), a lively character filled with much needed comic relief and hope. Across the way the park’s newest resident, "Rayleen Hobbs" (Dale Dickey), storms into their lives, and sadly she too has her own tragic story to tell.

The character’s are brilliantly strung together, with the help of a sultry intuitive blues singer (Debby Holiday), giving a mere two hour journey into their world that could fill a lifetime. Explosive one-sided arguments erupt and build over time, until one disastrous night it goes too far and the lives of those in the trailer park will never the same.

Sordid Lives The Series is the Best New Show on TV

If you agree that Sordid Lives: the Series is the best new show on TV, have a shot! Not since Will & Grace and the Cosby Show, or Soap and All In The Family, has a TV show been so massively loved right off the bat. The entire cast is terrific. Understood that the existing cast is brilliant the newbies, Caroline Rhea, Jason Dottley, David Steen and David Cowgill are all great. I have a huge crush on Jason Dottley. He's a fantastic actor and a big improvement over Kirk Geiger as Ty. Also the Sharron Alexis, the crazy ex, is hotter and better than ever. Rosemary Alexander looks 10 years younger than in the film and is just captivatingly hateful! Katherine Bailess is a gem, an absolute gem. And Del Shores is a god for creating such a masterpiece. enjoy

Celebrate the Best New Show on TV

Ode To a Bar Goddess: Juanita

Some call her a bar fly, some call her crazy, I call her a bar goddess. Sarah Hunley's portrayal of Juanita in Sordid Lives: The Series leaves me literally aching from laughter. She's got alot on her alcohol soaked brain and she's never afraid of letting you know it. Although, she no good with names, "I forget."

Craziest thing of all is how un-like Juanita Sarah Hunley looks in real life. Compare below for yourself!

We love you Juanita!!

Amber Alert!!! Where are Noleta's Kids

It happened from season one to season two in Family Matters and it seems that now Sordid Lives: the Series has lost children. In the film Noleta mentions having to get home to explain about GW to her kids, but in the series, unless they're the tiniest midgets ever to leave the Wizard of Oz, they are no where to be found!

Whatever happened to the kids??? Will they appear later? Did Del Shores kick them out, LOL?

Spotted in Fiji

Jason Dottley and Del Shores have been spotted in Fiji..more information hopefully forthcoming!

Another String Trick, Stupid

Whatever happened to Earl Bullock? He not only originated the role of string-trick idiot "Odell" in the play, but also in the movie. He's not dead. So why is he not here?

Don't get me wrong. I prefer the new guy, David Cowgill. First of all, he's very funny, but secondly, he's superbly cute. He's straight, too, so ladies! Do you remember him from Young and the Restless?

Let's do a side by side comparison of the new and old Odells. I bet David Cowgil's got a string he can do some mean tricks with in his Wranglers! Yum!

Katherine Bailess Finds Herself a Sordid Home

Okay, so it's in the nut house, but how happy am I that Kat Bailess is in Sordid Lives: The Series!!!!

You may remember her from the now cult-like film from the American Idol franchise From Justin to Kelly which was a (brokendown) vehicle for then -new-artist-now-massive-pop star Kelly Clarkson and Tony Award Winner and Dreamgirl Anika Noni Rose.
Kat Bailess now joins the prestigious ranks that make up Sordid Lives: The Series. I wonder what mister Shores has in store for us with this one. God, I hope she's a lesbian!

Kat was Collen, the tumbling newscaster in Bring it On Again!, she was Erica Marsh on One Tree Hill, Wendy in The Loop, and Stephanie in the Gilmore Girls.

Now that Sharron Alexis has the hot starlett covered for the West Coast of Sordid Lives, Kat Bailess has the sexy sweet Southern belle covered in the Texas World. They compliment each other perfectly.

A Shaved and Sordid Stroll on Robertson

Sordid Lives: The Series star Jason Dottley was seen out today with an incredibly sexy buzz cut. His super sexy(and straight, so eat your heart out ladies!) Sordid Lives co-star Ted Detwiler who plays his blooming love interest and a very pretty younger girl who isn't named on the photo server were with him. I'm assuming she must be one of Jason' step daughters... if you know, write in and let us know!

Ann, Del, Jason and Calpernia Addams in Weho

Some Sordid Lives spies spotted Ann Walker, Del Shores and Jason Dottley at bar Eleven in West Hollywood last night. They were seen with Calpernia Addams who must be very good friends with the crew. Look here at a youtube.com video Calpernia posted about her time with the Sordid crew in Atlanta for gay pride.

Sordid Lives' Jason Dottley Steams in Episode 4 Teaser!

Sordid! Sordid! Sordid! 1st 3 EPS Tonight On LOGO!

Okay, no excuse for missing any episodes. TONIGHT there is a triple Sordid Lives: The Series night on LOGO of the first three episodes at 7:30, 8:00 & 8:30PM (EST).

Sharron Wins By a Sordid Land Slide

With an amazing 422 votes (46%) Sharron Alexis easily won our last poll. Coming in a close, relative, second is the fabulous Ann Walker with over 350 votes!

She may have only had a few pops in the movie, but her role is so identifiable with all gay men and hags around the globe. Nagging her closeted boyfriend Ty to be honest with her as to why they broke up acts as a catalyst for Ty to come out. In the series, we see her role is greatly enlarged. She's in nearly episode according to imdb.com (the industry bible) and it appears that she has blossomed into a totally sexy starlett.

With the key to Ty's apartment still lingering around her neck, bedazzled no less, Sara Kaufman is bound and determined to get her man back! Will she have any luck? We doubt it. Maybe she'll find straight love on Sordid, maybe she'll go lezzi (hey that lezzie at the theatre in Ty's world would make a fun option0 or she'll continue to evolve into one of Ty's best friends, as most hags become.

Regardless, congratulations Sharron Alexis! You are the winner of our "Which Returning Lady Looks Best" poll!

For those of you wanting a good laugh, check out this youtube video some fan made to the song "Sara Kaufman" had on the soundtrack to Sordid Lives the movie, "Please Don't Be Gay". It's been viewed over 10,000 times on youtube.com. Let's get that number up!

Sordid Lives Jason Dottley Gets Naked on YouTube!

This is hysterically hot and an instant classic:

I found this video and the below article at Quirky San Francisco:
What a surprise when some of the cast went on stage at the Castro Theater, here in San Francisco, and Jason Dottley stole the show by pulling his pants down in front of 1000 or so, mostly male audience at the premier of the new TV version of Sordid Lives. It was totally unexpected and you can tell, I nearly missed it.

I hope he doesn't regret it? And, I'm sure it won't hurt the ratings one bit. It's a very funny show and well worth watching.

Check the link (below), there's a shot of him with his shirt off. That boy just loves to get naked, I guess?

D-Day Updates

It appears that Sharron Alexis has taken an very strong lead in our poll.  

I never thought such a face-off would happen and I surely hope that all the ladies involved know that this was a competition of LOVE and that they all are winners.  It's as if they are competing to place from 9.5 to 10.0 on a scale of 1 - 10.  They all are gorgeous.

In that, Sarah Hunley (Juanita) was put in the poll as a joke, she's not supposed to be "purty",  and to answer one of your blog questions, Sissy was not included because we didn't feel like her look evolved any.  She's a bit of classic. Sissy will look exactly the same in 10 more years, so we left her out.

Ann Walker left a beautiful comment on the last post about Sharron Alexis.  You can tell that the cast really loves one another and that the fun in this was understood by all.

Our next poll -- coming up tonight after the show airs! -- will not be an actor vs actor poll.   But it's a firecracker, so come back.

Also today expect a lot of posting as tonight is THE night for our 3rd new episode of Sordid Lives: The Series.
