Dutch TV’s Out of the Closet Beats Howard Bragman To Coming Out TV Show

Howard Bragman, the Hollywood publicist who only speaks kindly of celebrity gays when they pay him, has been talking up his A&E reality show Coming Out for months. "It is a difficult series to cast and produce, but celebrities have been approaching me," he said in November. But while we wait for his premiere, the Dutch program Uit de Kast (or Out of the Closet) is already on air, and broadcasting real-life coming out stories. Yea!

Ramin Setoodeh + Howard Bragman Both Need To STFU About Gays In Hollywood

Tonight Joy Behar welcomed two of the most disingenuous homosexual "experts" (who happen to be homosexuals themselves) on her program to debate, or whatever, Hollywood's homophobia. There's Ramin Setoodeh, the Newsweek scribe who, seven months after making terrible arguments about gay actors made more terrible arguments about gay actors. And publicist Howard Bragman, who only says nice things about other gays when they pay him. My god these men are awful. And between Setoodeh trying to reinvent himself as a defender of gay actors (after trampling all over them), and Bragman attacking and laughing at (ahem, non-paying client) Rupert Everett for the way plastic surgery has changed his appearance (aren't you the same bully who's about to help people come out, you fucking jerk?), I'm not sure who's worse. But I do know that when it comes to a conversation about what's good for gays in Hollywood, neither of these men are it.

Who’s Going to Dole Out Pieces of Steven Slater? Quisling Flack Howard Bragman

Internet fame. A reality TV show offer. And surely countless offers to get laid via Facebook. Clearly flight attendant Steven Slater needs a handler, and he's found one in Howard Bragman, Hollywood's most self-aggrandizing gay rep — and Slater doesn't even need to come out! Bragman already hooked Slater up with Barry Manilow, so you know he's earning his retainer. May Slater's inevitable press junket take place at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. Well, Slater, nothing is going to unravel your folk hero status more than working with this guy.
