Blind Item #6

This A+ list television producer who is known for one monster iconic hit network show all of you know refuses to hire anyone on camera he knows is openly gay. He was ticked when he found out after the fact about one person.

Oh Derek don’t get your panties in a bunch... it was an April Fools! You know-the kinda day you must have everyday... and I’m going on an EasterEgg hunt... starts at 3 on our island- thanks for concern mate!!!
Lost your job again?

Kendrick Schroder said...

Lorne Michaels. There was an interview with a certain out gay comic who does impressions about it. I think it was during SWSX. Can't remember where but it could've been the Daily Beast.

Tricia13 said...

I agree with that or Larry David-a known douche/Seinfeld

DonnaMarie said...

Hahaha...You are such a genius at pranks. I would stick with your day job...oh wait...

John Doe78359022 said...

Except for Chris colfer does Ryan Murphy hire any openly gay male actors? Darren Criss and Matthew Morrison are both closet cases.

Donna woke up on the wrong side of the bed in some sassy pants today. Happy Easter to you too.

Tricia13 said...

Yeah-living in Paradise is awful.
I would rather be tagging luggage in the tundra like you ,son... oh wait...*when you’re actually employed/before you get fired

Tricia13 said...

Donna-or Derek Harvey as we all who have been here for a while-know unfortunately that he was born on the wrong side of the bed... nasty nasty piece of work...he’s been masquerading as an alias (or more a long time) because he shamed himself off the site with his behavior and abuse..... this is nothing. Wait till he really gets goingπŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™πŸ»

DonnaMarie said...

Yeah you really come across as a happy and productive member of society. Anyone that makes-up as many assumptions as you do and BRAGS about wonderful they are has serious issues. And is a complete asshole.

April Fool blinds today

I’ve got my popcorn ready 😏

Producer - Rob Greenberg
Show - How I met your mother
Gay actor - NPH

DiscoD said...

Also had a hand in Frasier (David Hyde Pierce came out after show ended)

Tricia13 said...

Not from my end- That kind of crazy is not worth anyone’s time....feel bad for his houseplants,actually.

rosie riveter said...

Actually, she DOES come off as a happy and productive member of society. I think you're the only one who says otherwise. Speaking of functioning member of society, did you find a job yet derek?

sandybrook said...

Anyhow back to the bi I think it's Larry David. +1

Sara, Making It Work said...

+1 Lorne Michaels
Pissed about Kate McKinnon.

There haven't been any out cast members on SNL since the 80s. In a recent interview, Alec Baldwin talked about how there's been many closeted cast members.

Tricia13 said...

Thanks RosieπŸ™πŸ»can’t expect he’d know what it is to be one... or what it looks like-so we should kinda take pity-AGAIN.(till his next verbal nuclear attack followed by his drunken apologetic ramblingsπŸ˜πŸ™„

Farmgirl said...

Larry David works with Wanda Sykes all the time...

DDonna Tarttty said...

Not sure anybody's got it yet. I laughed at Tricia's David Crane guess--of course it was absurdist on 1April!

Sd Auntie said...

Ugh. Derek just leave your comments and get a move on.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Then in a Twitter war w/ A-Bald

Yoni Yum said...

“Monster” hit = The Walking Dead?
Producer would be Scott Gimple. Actor could be Daniel Newman?

just sayin' said...

This is 100% Lorne Michaels. Not even a blind.
SNL Has A Problem With Casting Gay Men

Tierney said...

Is there gonna be a dance-battle?! *tries to start a slow clap*

Joe said...

It is absolutely not Scott Gimple. Among other things he does a live show with the openly gay Dave Holmes.

Large Marge said...

Def Lorne Michaels. Pissed about Kate McKinnon. He likes pretty young things.

Irwin Smigel did my grandmother's teeth. Watch it before it gets scrubbed again.

Kate K said...

I think the best approach is to ignore and maybe he will go away. He ruined CDaN back in the day. Don't let him do it again.

T. W. said...

Producer - Peter Cottontail

Show - Ishtar

Bigbro411 said...

Whomever this is, they are disgusting. Someone's sexual orientation has nothing to do with their work ethic. What a monster.

DonnaMarie said...

Not from "your" end, Tricia? Then stop commenting nonsense on my posts, idiot. I thought you had a family-fun day or whatever-and yet you still can't resist. Sad and strange. My e-mail alerts keep popping up with YOUR stupid unwarranted replies. She can't ignore me, if she is the one antagonizing me-she's a crazy woman with no life. Boo Hearne was right about you! There is something seriously off and dark-sided about your "life".

Joe said...

It makes no sense for it to be Kate McKinnon. Her major credit before SNL was The Big Gay Sketch Show. She's been out from the start of her career so for Lorne not to have known would have been pretty strange.

Tricia13 said...

I pray other long term posters see this... of course he did: he’s toxic.

By the way- news flash-I have no notifications on my my phone nor do I know when someone responds, unless it’s a thread I’m interested in...you might want to attempt the same. How long did it take you to get out of an anger management?
And another thing sweet cheeks—
Low hanging , inbred fruit is nothing I would attack... that’s your -deal πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Ann R. Key said...

WOW! Tricia took the gloves off. Good for you, sweetie. I lambasted him here once and everybody jumped on me. I guess you're the only one we're allowed to rag on? Glad to see you standing up to that disgusting prick.

Kate K said...

Don't let him provoke you, Tricia. It's been so nice on here without him.

More Cowbell said...

I'm enjoying the conflict between @DonnaMarie and @Tricia13 much more than the blinds today! :)

One can only endure idiocy and arrogance (unjustified,the worst kind)... for so long.
The kit gloves have been on because I grew with something called class -despite what he put me through on this site-I maintained it.
That’s how I sleep at night.

Tricia13 said...

Archive what what you need(I won’t go back there) but people here know what’s up.
Let’s see Dereck put his balls back on and admit who he is /what he’s done here-
Or has it transitioned???

Tricia13 said...

πŸ‘

Tricia13 said...

He’s a toxic fuck.
He’s also probably stable -or so it’s been demonstrated over years here....

Tricia13 said...

UNstable*

Do Tell said...

Lorne Michaels doesn't make sense for this because Terry Sweeney was on the show for a number of seasons and he was so openly gay you could tell from a mile out.

Eric said...

He was originally hired as a writer on SNL during the non-Lorne Years.

iknowpeople said...

I tend to just lurk, but the proportionality and aggressiveness of the attacks seems to be leaning towards Tricia 13.

The two of you were why I stopped reading CDAN years ago. But at that time, didn’t Tricia have a crush on Hiddleston and was going to stalk him when he was filming in Canada? Either I have the name wrong or Tricia has a new backstory.

Frankly, I don’t give a rat’s ass, I simply wish they’d both go at it privately.

BTW, @Geeljire, Robert Smigel is a great, humble guy.

Remie Ross said...

Do you get equally outraged over people in Hollywood blacklisting anyone who espouses conservative viewpoints? Or are you one of those with only selective outrage?

Wendy said...

I see it, Tricia. He clearly has mental problems, how he comes and goes under different aliases just to trash you is a clear sign. I actually hope he gets help, and you protect yourself, seriously.

Wendy said...

It really has been great here without him. He seriously brings the discussion down.

Han Niam said...

@John He hired Matt Bomer as well and NPH guested on Glee’s first season. Also... ugh, brain is not giving me the name right now. The guy who played Jesse on Glee. Lea Michele’s old Broadway friend. Also started in Frozen. Dated Zachary Quinto for a while.

I HATE brain fog.

Anyway, him too.

jvanchicago said...

I kind of wish both Donna/Derek and Tricia could stop it. If one eggs the other on, IGNORE them. This constant back and forth doesn’t look good on either one of you. Guess what? You’re both good at the blinds. It’s not a competition, and you don’t both need to go out of your way to prove each other wrong and be catty. We’re all adults here, right?

Hugo Pedersen said...

If this was Larry David wouldn't he be described as a writer and actor?

Geeljire said...

If plot and I can largely coexist in CDAN comments
Then it probably isn't worth your time to attack Tricia

@iknowpeople Robert Smigel was very influential on my sense of humor, giving me a place in time to point to and claim when "SNL was funny." Every generation has their own.

Tricia13 said...

Well that’s sounds nice(I’d not waaay oversimplified)- but being that I ignored so much for so long and could enjoy the sight again(apparently many others feel the same way if you take the time to read the comments); you can imagine I was less than thrilled to wake up and see someone posting as”DonnaMarie” calling me Trash-a and worse etc for no reason then deleting their comment the next dayblike a coward.... of you think it’s so easy to keep turning the cheek than why don’t you guess first or say something to piss it off and see how you like the attacks. It would also be nice if you for once would put accountability and blame where it belongs... do not include me with him in any way,respectfully....

Tricia13 said...

*if not

Tricia13 said...

Thanks Wendy:)
All good here....πŸ™πŸ»

Tim said...

The Larry David guesses are bad. He did a great episode of Curb with Rosie O'Donnell.

Jimmy said...

Can't be Lorne, McKinnon was on Logo before SNL, he knew she was gay when he hired her. Also, Paul Brittain I'm not sure if he came out before or after SNL. Def lack of openly gay representation on that show though.

+1 NPH on How I Met Your Mother

Tricia13 said...

No Malibuboooorbee. That was TTM -you know the nice poster you used to harass as well as me?

Tricia13 said...

*slow golf clap* for the ol “I tend to just lurk “ intro you use with Your 30 alias’πŸ™„

Copperbunny said...

@Tricia I'm a LONG LONG time reader/lurker.....work 9 to 5 so tend to catch up on this site in the evenings. I just wanted to add my voice to the chorus in support of you. Derek Harvey was/is a mess and he treated you appallingly. I'm embarrassed to admit I'm also from Toronto but please don't judge us all by his antics...most Canadians are just as polite as we are rumoured to be :)

Amy Hurley said...

Is dude salty because Tricia beats him to the punch all the time? Just because someone gets there 1st doesn't mean that you don't know the answer also. I'm new, but I'm always pleased when I guess and look down to see my guess alligns with Tricia, Sandybrook, couple of others. It's like, I kick ass at Jeopardy, but I'm not always able to scream my answer at the TV before the contestants are. Please don't pick on Sensei Tricia. She is a valuable resource.

Tricia13 said...

Copper bunny and Amy I appreciate that very muchπŸ™πŸ»I’m still here kickin years later (and after his abuse) because the people /commentators on this site(no withstanding the obvious and his alias’), are amazing. I love being here and sharing stories ,hearing tales:)πŸ₯‚

Tricia13 said...

And Copperbunny-I know! I have several good friends over years (even here in the Caribbean)that are Canadian. Can’t blame a vast lovely country for that train wreck 🀷‍♀️To judge is to prove ones own ignorance.... ya know ... what he does consistently .
Shout out to NA!

bianca said...

Yeah, that's Jonathan Groff. He has also worked with Cheyenne Jackson and Colton Haynes on multiple shows.

bianca said...

Oh and I forgot Ricky Martin, too.

bianca said...

They advertised Kate being gay before she even debuted. He might not have known when he hired her, but he never tried to push her in the closet. She was clearly considered a breakout performer early in her tenure.

bianca said...

OMG, I forgot about that! Even without that, I totally agree. He has always seemed fair and generous about promoting Kate, despite his reputation for occasionally bedding his talent. Promoting a lesbian actually helps both of their reputations.

Doug said...

Wikipedia says that Terry Sweeney was in the cast for one season.
