Does Melissa Etheridge have it all over Ellen? Does Doogie put Lance to shame? Bravo's OUTzoneTV.com broadband channel is launching a poll on Friday, Dec. 8, seeking to crown the "Sexiest Gay Celebrity of 2007." In addition to the aforementioned foursome, nominees include Project Runway's Tim Gunn, filmmaker Pedro Almodovar, Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears, Shortbus driver John Cameron Mitchell, decorator-to-Oprah Nate Berkus, former Bassmaster Reichen Lehmkuhl, Portia de Rossi, and singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright. Apparently, T.R. Knight will have to rely on the write-in vote.
Scrubs cutie Sarah Chalke got engaged to longtime boyfriend Jamie Afifi last week during a Hawaiian getaway, reports People.... The O.C.'s Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson, who have been dating since 2004, have called it quits, says Life & Style.... Lance Bass and Reichen Lehmkuhl have ended their (same-sex, shhh!) relationship, says People.... Dancing with the Stars' Willa Ford is engaged to NHL star Mike Modano, says Us, and plans to tie the knot once hockey season ends and the groom gets a final count on his teeth.
Think fast: Which reality-TV star's sexy poster was rejected by a self-described "right-wing conservative, God-fearing Christian" printer?
That'd be Reichen Lehmkuhl Burke
, who won The Amazing Race 4
with his ex-boyfriend, Chip Arndt
. After signing a contract, Reichen alleges that Mark Jones
of Vacaville, Calif. — who did not object to the poster photo itself — visited his website
, where he learned that Reichen is gay. (We guess the guy doesn't watch much TV.) He says that's when Jones opted not to honor their agreement.
On March 16, Reichen tells TVGuide.com, he and his attorney will hold a press conference in West Hollywood, Calif., to make an announcement. No, he's not planning to sue Jones, he says, but he does aim to bring public attention to the injustice of his situation.
Meanwhile, life goes on for the 31-year-old aspiring actor, who recently drank worm juice on Realit
