Just who does that good ol’ gay Southern boy Leslie Jordan think he is? Apparently, he thinks he’s Betty White. Hence the push from the Emmy Award-winning Will & Grace star, Sordid Lives cover boy and frequent Dallas visitor (we last profiled him here) to be one of the contestants on the next season of ABC’s reality competition series Dancing with the Stars. Jordan first began his campaign about two years ago, but with the rise of Facebook — which led to the surprisingly successful bid to get Betty White as host of Saturday Night Live (making her the oldest host in the 35-year history of the show) — Jordan is trying for viral enthusiasm. So far, Jordan’s Facebook page has a respectable 2,400 “likers,” but you know we can do more. So, if you’re on Facebook, click here to become a fan and let all your friends know. Jordan might not be the first openly gay dancer, but he’ll no doubt he the most fun.
