good news, New Yorkers!

You have the chance to see the first two episodes of "Exes & Ohs" before they air!!!

Cattyshack (249 4th Ave. in Brooklyn) will be hosting a screening on Thursday, October 4. The event is from 6-9pm and it'll be a blast! For more info, click here.

Stay tuned to the blog for more updates and info on the show...

And as for the update on me, well, it's just as busy as ever. In the past 24 hours, I've done interviews, had meetings, helped put some super cool promotional plans into motion, finished a new project - and I've done it all on just one cup of coffee!

Wow. Hold on a moment. Does that mean what I think it does? Could it be? Could it be true that everything I am, everything I do, I really owe to: Vanilla Coffee Creamer?

Whew. That's a mind-boggling thought. Excuse me while I go ponder that over a second cup of coffee.

cool things last week

This is a bit of a delayed post, but I did a couple of really cool things last week that I wanted to make sure I shared on the blog...

On Tuesday, I went to the Advocate's 40th anniversary party - which was amazing. If you're not familiar with the Advocate, here's a link to their site. They've covered some incredible stories over the years and have been consistently at the forefront of reporting on and bringing to light LGBT news and issues. It was a privilege for me to be invited and to get to walk the red carpet with the likes of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, T.R. Knight, Katherine Heigl, John Amaechi and XO's very own Heather Matarrazzo. And I'd be lying if I didn't also mention that I had a great time. :-)

Then, bright and early the next day (well, not too early), I had my photo shoot! It was fantastic... and I'd like to give a huge shout out to the incredibly talented photographer, hair stylist, and makeup guru. I hope you'll take time to visit their respective sites. Their work is gorgeous.

The shoot wasn't just great because of the photography team or because I had such a good time doing it. It was also great because it was a "first" for me. If you've been reading this blog for a while, then you've been able to follow along with some of my other firsts... first series of my own (that's an obvious one), first red carpet event, etc. And last week's photo shoot was a first because it was the first one I've done for a specific magazine!

"But wait," you say. "I've seen photos of you and the cast in magazines before. What about those?"

Allow me to explain... Logo has a bunch of great photos that were taken during the huge gallery shoot we did while filming season 1 (if you're new to my blog, you can read all about it in the December 2006 archive; the posting date was Dec. 2). Logo provides them to journalists and online/print publications who are doing pieces on or about the show... so those are the photos you've seen thus far. But sometimes, a publication will want to do its own photo shoot to accompany a feature or cover article, and that's what I got to do last week. So, very soon, my brand-new-never-before-seen-and-unlike-anything-else-I've-ever-done-before photos will go to print, as will the article. Yay!

Thanks for sharing this new "first" with me - and I'll definitely let you know when that article will be available on a newsstand near you...

2 weeks to go!

Don't forget! Exes & Ohs premieres on Logo TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY!!! Hopefully Logo will have our web site up soon... so stay tuned.

And we premiere on Showcase TWO WEEKS FROM THURSDAY!!! Check us out on the Showcase site by clicking here.

It's so exciting!!!! :-)


new XO ad

In case you haven't seen it yet, here's one of the new ads for Exes & Ohs!


"Exes & Ohs" gets an official home page on Showcase!

Showcase has just put up its official "Exes & Ohs" home page! To check it out, click here.

As you'll see when you visit the link, Showcase already has several episode synopses posted (for those of you who can't wait to know what the first few episodes are about!) and - very soon - they'll also post some great video content. What that "content" is, I can't tell you... so you'll just have to keep checking back! :-)

They were also kind enough to post a link to this blog, so going between there and here will be easy!

As a reminder, we premiere in Canada on Showcase on October 11. Woo hoo!!!


greetings, Canada!

Hello Canadian readers! Just a quick post to let you all know that "Exes & Ohs" is now on the Showcase web site. To check out the series overview, click here. To read the first episode summary, click here.

As a reminder, we premiere on Showcase on October 11 at 10pm. Woo hoo!


3 weeks to go!

Thanks, Nico, for being my official counter while I've been away from the blog... but I'm back! And there are only 3 weeks to go until the U.S. premiere of Exes & Ohs!!!!!

Mark your calendars, set your watches, and get ready for the show that's been over two years in the making... and almost two years in the blogging. As a reminder, it premieres October 8 on Logo; October 11 on Showcase; and it will be available on iTunes somewhere around one of those times.

Logo has just started running ads for the show on the Logo home page. They'll also be putting up an official Exes & Ohs home page toward the end of this week. And soon, there will be myspace pages for the show and all the characters. I'll keep you posted on all of that.

In the meantime, the promotional stuff that I'm doing is also heating up!

-- Last week, I filmed a promo piece for an upcoming AfterEllen thing (sadly, I have to say "thing" because I can't tell you what it is yet - but I'll let you know when I can). It was a blast and you'll get to check it out online very soon.

-- Over the weekend I had a great interview for an upcoming article. Hopefully, the writer finds me more fascinating than I find myself. ;-)

-- Last night, I attended the "Out at the Emmys" viewing party at East/West Lounge where I did the red carpet, got pictures taken, did some interviews, and had a lot of fun feeling very fancy.

-- And this coming week, I've got a few more interviews, a photo shoot, some industry meetings, the Advocate 40th anniversary party (and its red carpet), and then I'm going to top it all off with a hot bath and a long nap...

On a related note, I've been confirmed for a couple of appearances... none of which have been officially announced yet so I can't tell you where/when. But suffice it to say that in a few weeks I will be somewhere, doing something, with some people, to help promote the show. How's that for vague?

So stay tuned for more info! It's coming fast and furious these days...
