Sesame Street Should Have Let Bert and Ernie Be Gay, and Here’s Why

Sesame Street Should Have Let Bert and Ernie Be Gay, and Here’s Why
Why, Sesame Street? Why? After longtime staffer Mark Saltzman told Queerty that he’d always written Bert and Ernie as gay, the venerable educational show for kids didn’t respond, “Of course they’re a couple — who else would quarrel like that?” or even, “Viewers can ascribe to the roomies whatever qualities they feel best fit them.”

Instead, it pointed out in a statement that the beloved characters “are identified as male… and possess many human traits,” then discounted them as puppets who, as such, “do not have a sexual orientation.” (Which must have come as quite a shock to Kermit the Frog.

Buddy Valastro, better known as the Cake Boss, is the type of self-made man that a lot of people look up to, and yet there’s another side of him that we don’t always get to see since it doesn’t make it to the camera. He’s pretty demanding as a boss, but that’s understandable since he charges so much for his cake and has a very high-end clientele that demands perfection. Buddy’s already pretty hard on himself since he doesn’t enjoy sending out low-quality cakes and has even had to deal with one or two people that have dared to come

Reviews for the actual 70th Primetime Emmys telecast on Monday night aren’t great, but people are still talking about the weekend. Give the TV industry an extra day to celebrate the Emmys, and things get weird.

Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Key Art Puts a Big Smile on Meredith's Face — Plus, Jo Forms an 'Unexpected Alliance'

Grey’s Anatomy loves to fake us out. So, although we think we know what’s put that smile on Meredith’s face in the Season 15 key art dropped Tuesday by ABC, we can’t be entirely sure.

As you’d expect, the network’s breakdowns of the episodes that make up the series’ two-hour premiere (Thursday, Sept. 27, at 8/7c) offer little in the way of clues. The first hour, “With a Wonder and a Wild Desire” — written by showrunner Krista Vernoff and directed by Debbie Allen (Catherine) — features Grey Sloan’s doctors competing to win a new position, Mer being distracted,

Looking at Bailey Chase you might get the impression that he’s big, he’s tough, and therefore doesn’t do a lot other than stand there and, well, look big and tough while saying only a few words. While the former is true he does in fact speak and he does it very well. In fact if you ever watch him on anything he does he’s not always the most eloquent person but he doesn’t have to be since his looks speak for him at times when his words don’t, or aren’t meant to, do the trick.
