‘Glamorama’ arrives — finally — in style
Back in 2002, we reported on the “in devel-
opment” status of “Glamorama,” the fourth
movie to be made from a novel by Bret Easton
Ellis (the author who’s either gay, bi, straight or
none of the above, depending on which news
source you happen to be reading).
Three years later, that film is a reality, direct-
ed by Roger Avary (“The Rules of Attraction”)
and scheduled for release sometime in 2005 or
Since all of Ellis’ fiction features overlapping
characters, Kip Pardue is reprising his “Rules”
role as Victor, a pretty male model in 1990s
Manhattan. In this film, Victor falls in with a
group of terrorist supermodels bent on wreaking
havoc in their Kevlar-lined Armani suits.
The movie also stars Robert Sean Leonard
and Estella Warren (“Kangaroo Jack"), but what
really has us excited is a glimpse at those retro
Mizrahi tries on new network
He’s in Bergdorf Goodman. He’s in Target.
And soon Isaac Mizrahi will be on your TV five
days a week.
“Isaac,” the fashion/home furnishings/dog
accessories designer’s new talk show, will debut
later this fall on the Style Network.
Earlier this year, we reported a similar ven-
ture from Mizrahi, tentatively scheduled for
NBC. but Style stepped in and gave him a
Monday-to-Friday slot. Unlike “The Isaac
Mizrahi Show,” his former weekly series on
Oxygen, “Isaac" will be shot before a live audi-
ence. And don’t expect strict adherence to the
subject of fashion.
The charming host and his visiting guests will
share their obses-
sions about pop

that is the stom-
ach. And it’s that
wise old secret
that these partners
in business and
life used to get a
lock on the view-
of the Food
- competition, “The
Next Food Network Star.”
The culinary couple’s jackpot will be hosting
their own cooking show on the cable channel.
They’ll be the first openly gay co-hosts of a
food series — as yet unnamed — and they’ll be
making their debut this fall, joining other Food
Network celeb chefs like Jamie Oliver, Rachael
Ray and Emeril Lagasse
We’re certain the new cooking kids on the
block will be able to stand the heat.
Beginning of the end
TV watchers’ favorite set of gay boys and
their girlfriends — Will, Grace, Jack and Karen
of NBC’s phenomenally successful sitcom “Will
& Grace,” get ready to kick off their eighth and
final season with a live broadcast on both
coasts. The first episode of the show’s last sea-
son airs Sept. 29, and it will be the first live
broadcast of a sitcom since television’s early
days in the 1950s, according to 365gay.com.
Max Mutchnick. the series’ openly-gay cre-
ator, promised not to pull any punches in tire
script just because the show is ailing live. He
said writers will be reworking it right up
until an' time and that is will be filled with

Flight 93 Kip Pardue
Of the countless stories of personal heroism
that followed the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11,
2001, the still somewhat mysterious events
aboard United Airlines Flight 93 remain intrigu-
ing and open to speculation.
This Sept. 11, the Discovery Channel will air
“The Flight That Fought Back,” a two-hour spe-
cial exploring the details of the hijacked Boeing
757 that crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pa.
One of the 41 people aboard, gay business-
man and amateur rugby player Mark Bingham,
is assumed to have taken part in the midair pas-
senger rebellion that led to the plane missing its
intended target in the nation’s capital. He was
posthumously recognized as a “Person of the
Year" by The Advocate, and now his courage,
along with that of his fellow passengers, w ill be
remembered in the special.
