Watch: Gay Vet Alex Nicholson and Hate Group Leader Peter Sprigg Discuss ‘DADT’ Repeal

If CNN is going to keep inviting hate group leaders like Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council on their shows, I hope they’ll continue to apply tougher questioning regarding the falsehoods that they are peddling.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP

Nene Leakes At Last Meets Her Boo Anderson Cooper, And Of Course They Discuss Lady Gaga

As Andy Cohen waved in (with his entire upper body, as he's known to do) a fight-night test run of a nightly version of Watch What Happens Live, he brought together Anderson Cooper and The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Nene Leakes — BFFs who've never met! Until last night, where the flirting (between Anderson and Nene, Andy and Anderson, Andy and Nene) was outrageous.

Cher And David Letterman Discuss Her Son Chaz Bono’s Transition

They both stumbled repeatedly over their pronouns, but last night Cher and David Letterman had a frank discussion about Chaz’s transition and what the difference is between being gay and being transgender. Cher’s loving support is amply evident and Letterman’s questions and comments show that perhaps he learned something after being widely criticized for an anti-trans skit early this year. Let’s hope the language police aren’t too hard on either of them for their his/her missteps. Context, and all that. The bit about Chaz begins at 12:30 in the first clip and continues through the second. (Note that these clips are not from CBS and may disappear from YouTube.)

AC360: Rep. Jared Polis & LCR’s Clarke Cooper Discuss Chambliss Scandal

Tonight CNN’s Anderson Cooper discussed the “all faggots must die” comment left by a Sen. Saxby Chambliss staffer here on JMG, bringing on Rep. Jared Polis and Log Cabin head R. Clarke Cooper. (The same pair discussed the issue on MSNBC’s Hardball yesterday.) Tonight’s conversation focused more on the delay in identifying the culprit, although LCR’s Cooper once again attempted to derail the issue by launching into an attack on Obama over DADT.

UNRELATED: CNN really has a problem with my name, this is the third mention in as many weeks in which they get it wrong. Whatevs.

90210 Producer, Trevor Donovan, Discuss Gay Character Coming Out

EW spoke to 90210 executive producer Rebecca Sinclair about the show's gay character, Teddy (played by Trevor Donovan), whose coming out was supposed to be kept secret but leaked and has now been reported widely.

Sinclair talks partly about how the story will unfold and who he gets involved with:

Donovan "As a top-tier athlete and the son of a famous—and famously womanizing—actor, Teddy has always felt the need to keep up appearances. He’s had trouble reconciling the image that the world has of him with his own true sense of self. And he’s worked hard to repress whatever homosexual feelings he’s had. But early on in this season, something shakes up the structure of his life. With stability and routine out the window, he has trouble repressing who he really is. He acts impulsively and ends up hooking up with a guy. So it’s less of an epiphany than an impulsive act that sets things in motion…Kyle (Riabko, who plays Teddy's object of affection) is absolutely terrific, charming and talented. He plays Ian, a self-confident, funny guy who is very much out and comfortable with his gayness…I think there is an immediate attraction. But Teddy is very uncomfortable with the feelings he has and is certainly not up for the kind of mature normal relationship that Ian has had in the past and would expect from a boyfriend…Hopefully he will be around for a long time. Certainly for season 3."

Donovan tweeted about it early in the week:

"I read all your tweets and know you are all curious about the 'gay' character this season. Let me say, gay or straight, relationships are relationships. Everyone goes through the same kind of troubles and joys. A gay storyline will have an added issue of dealing with judgment from others. Acceptance, by family, friends, society and self is just one of the concerns the character will be going through. It is a part of life, and it should be portrayed. I was told, and am confident the storyline will be written very well and the change in the character will be organic, NOT overnight. It's going to be a great season 3. I look forward to chatting with you all as we progress."
