AfterElton Briefs: A Must See “Nate Berkus Show,” Reichen is Pissed, A Big “Coronation Street” Announcement, and More!


Today was “Good Riddance Day” in Times Square, and cast members Andrew Call (L) and Omar Lopez-Cepero of Green Day’s Broadway musical American Idiot prepare to discard a worthless relic.

  • Last week we mentioned that gay character Marcus would be returning to the UK soap Coronation Street, and now comes word that he and former boyfriend Sean will tie the knot this spring in the show’s first civil partnership ceremony.
  • I’m sorry for the hurt and pain that this Forbes writer went through when her fiance of 10 years told her he was gay, but I admit I had to suppress a chortle when I read this line: “This wasn’t a guy that was giving off signals. He wasn’t out ‘til 3 a.m. There weren’t any strange phone calls. I didn’t smell Axe body spray on him when he came home from work.”
  • Below you can see MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer interview Jim and Dylan, the two NYC men who received those hundreds of letters to Santa.

  • Tomorrow Jane Lynch will help Charmin crown its “King or Queen of the Throne” at its public Charmin Restrooms in New York City. Now there’s a sentence I never thought I’d type.
  • Below you can see Rachel Maddow with a review of the many service members she interviewed in 2010, before and after the repeal of DADT.

  • Below you can see a preview of tomorrow’s Nate Berkus Show. He’ll sit down with Wendy Walsh, the mother of 13-year-old Seth, who killed himself after being bullied for being gay. Out country music star Chely Wright will also make an appearance.

  • Finally, I have a special treat for you. Starting today, and every day this week, i’ll post a sneak peek of the upcoming SyFy classic Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid. Today it’s “Gatoroid Rage, as Tiffany and her mega-breasts try to … do stuff, while Deborah Gibson observes from a cave … or something.
