‘The A List’ Recap: I Need a Mainetervention

'The A List' Recap: I Need a Mainetervention

The A List isn’t on Thanksgiving vacation after all. So, consequently, that means I’m not either. On the bright side, it’s probably meant to be, because there’s real-time breaking news to report about Reichen. His autobiography, a 350-plus page-turner called Here’s What We’ll Say: Growing Up, Coming Out and the US Air Force has been adapted into a screenplay.

So, that got me thinking. Victims of Time Warner or other such crappy cable providers that have access to the A-List and actually watch it probably claim to hate it on the outside. But on the inside, the story is quite the opposite. In short, I’ve learned there’s a shred of fake in all of us – only more so if you’re an A-lister. More »
