That looks like some part out of the motor of a '55 Chevy.
The Beekman Eldergays aren't exactly known for understanding the concept of "good taste." I'm not surprised about the tackiness of the ring, but I still wish them the best of luck!
Hmmm. Did we know they got engaged last *year*? I'm happy to hear that, and I also think OP's a conformist asshole who hates any wedding band that isn't gold and perfectly shaped.
But...but...it's not HEIRLOOM!!!
I like the ring
Isn't it going to snag on everything?
[quote]Isn't it going to snag on everything?
Hopefully only once. Like a moving bus on "The Amazing Race."
Josh better make sure to remove it when he's fisting tricks.
Their friend Garth is a hot daddy.
The first picture made it look kinda interesting, primitive looking. But the pic with him wearing it, the rough detail isn't nearly as noticeable, it looks shiny and too thick. So yes major fail. But a good rough-finished, irregular ring would've been cool.
Looks like something left over from the holocaust, it's absolutely horrid looking.
Hey, I have a man who is going to be my spouse, while you haters are roaming around New York lonely, going into peep shows to try to find Latino cock to suck. Who's pitiful?
The limits of their self-promotion know no bounds; plus the rings are cheap and ugly.
One of them will probably die of tetanus from the ring.
To me the ring looks like the trigger you pull from a grenade. But maybe I am just projecting while running for the hills thanks to my commitment phobia.
I've been to Sharon Springs a few times (we are friends with the owners of that hotel from way back) and those two bitches are treated like Princess Fucking Diana in that town. Like no one can look at them, talk to them or acknowledge that they're in the same room with a MAJOR CELEBRITY.
I mean they did a reality show for two seasons. They aren't, you know, famous.
I like it.
Are you friends with Doug and Garth, r16? They look like a lot of fun.
I like it too. You all are such priss pots.
It looks cheap. Apparently, the only thing they value is attention.
Married? On their show they seemed to detest each other and spoke mostly with sarcasm and almost contempt for each other- but, congrats!
I don't know who these two numb skulls are but congrats!
i think it's beautiful.
op, why so bitter?
It's old news but good for them. There's at least some thought put into it.
I really liked Josh Kilmer-Purcell's book "I'm not Myself These Days: A Memoir" about when he was living in New York and was a Drag Queen with live goldfish in his breast and living with the S&M prostitute. I was kind of rooting for them as a couple. But it looks like he found happiness with his Dr. Brent.
R25: I liked the book too, but I didn't like the part where Josh and his hooker BF left the client who had ODed in their apartment to die on a park bench.
If that doesnt make them murderers, it makes them something morally close.
Why is everyone on DL so bitter about a successful, reasonably attractive gay couple?
Yes they have a successful company
Yes, they may not be super celebrities but are more famous than you or I will ever be
Yes, they have done more to make their community a success along with them than any of you every would or could
...and, yes, the ring is cool. They'll probably turn it into a product for their company and sell lots of them
I didn't even know that Josh wrote that book about being Aquadisiac until after I saw the show! It was like watching a hooker and a drag queen jump into a black pit. Then Josh resurfaced with baby goats and heirloom tomatoes. I love the incongruity of it all.
Can you imagine the man you love looking into your eyes, bending down on one knee, taking your hand and slipping THAT on?
I'd be like Dawn Davenport on Christmas morning.
How has no one yet posted that the video of Brent's proposal was filmed for "The Real Housewives of New York City"? (Josh and Brent live next door to Sonja, it seems) Sonja helped Brent stage a phony party, ostensibly to promote a new Beekman soap or something, that was actually a surprise engagement party for Josh. It didn't make the final cut for the show itself, but the proposal clip is on Bravo's Web site - link below.
And if you guys weren't all such cunts Josh would probably still be posting here and we'd get the behind the scenes scoop on Amazing Race
I hate you all
Here's hoping they keep the eldergay innkeepers on speed dial. They're going to need all the help they can get.
But, yes, congratulations and best wishes for many happy years together. Good for Brent for finally taking some initiative with the relationship.
R31 For some reason I do not have trouble picturing Josh telling Brent, "Get off me, you little witch!" during the, um, dismount.
The pic of the ring has a knuckle hair on it.
[quote]And if you guys weren't all such cunts Josh would probably still be posting here and we'd get the behind the scenes scoop on Amazing Race
What, seriously? Even if Josh was still here, there is no fucking way we'd get any scoop on TAR. Hell, they haven't even yet been formally announced as castmates! It's also SPECIFICALLY in every participant's contract that revealing ANY details about the show before they air is grounds for either a lawsuit or revocation of any prize money received. Also, I assume participants are also required to generally keep quiet about the mechanics of the show in general, given that virtually nothing is known about what goes on behind the scenes. (Example: contestants used to depart for their next destination exactly 12 hours after arriving at the previous one. That element was slowly eliminated over a couple of seasons before disappearing entirely for the past two or three. Now we have no real idea how long they get to rest before departing again. I have yet to hear ANYONE reveal how long they're now getting as a rest period.)
I like it. It's very butch.
Felicitations to the guys. Much happiness and long lives.
Sorry, it is ugly. You know it will end up for sale in their store. A simple gold band has always been a good choice. Platinum is nice. Classic styling will never look outdated.
That Bravo clip was embarrassing all around.
At what point will they look at themselves in the mirror in disgust for whoring out every real moment in their lives and celebrating them awkwardly on air with the fucking RHONY.
And then it gets cut out...
That clip made me cry.
Me to, R42! Getting engaged in front of the real housewibes' B-team was pretty tragic. Where were Miss Martha? James Frey? Oprah?
Those uneven edges are going to cut his hand wide open someday.
Marry me R26.
Wow, webbie let that comment be W&W'ed? He usually defends Josh and deletes negative posts about him.
Guess he's turned against him, too.
While I love r7, I actually like the rings. I wish Josh and Brent a wonderful life together.
Bengali in Platforms
Many bottoms might not like that ring very much. To be memorialized in steel for the all to see, might be considered a put down.
Did Josh have to retract his "biography" as he embellished a considerable amount of the story?
It looks like it would get caught on sweaters and things...ugly. Talk about a staged proposal. Not romantic in the least. I'd be pissed if I were Josh. Brent is a media whore.
It looks like an exagerated blown piston ring.
I like Josh a lot. Met him in Santa Monica on his book tour several years ago. I think he deserves what ever makes him happy. Brent makes him happy, so I'll knock off the criticism.
Wishing Josh and Brent continuing happiness
Will they do one of those "morning after" photo shoots to capture the afterglow from their wedding night? Will Josh be photographed tastefully naked with a baby bump on the porch of the American Hotel?
Happy birthday, Josh!
You are missed at Datalounge.
Very considerate of Brent to line the ring with sterling so Josh's finger doesn't turn green and fall off.
Why does josh always look like he wants to find a hole to crawl into and die whenever Brent is within 5 feet of him?
Josh has never been the same since he killed that tiny turkey (the size of a kitten!) to prove he was a Manimal.
You guys are such cunts. I'm not exactly Chris Crocker but I enjoyed Josh's posts here. You bitches run everyone off just so you can do your 'boys in the band' routine.
Who exactly do you like?
Eh..............it's their own thing. I don't love it but it's obviously special to Josh and Brent. Anyway I saw the BRAVO clip and I'm sorry, but Sonja is just too annoying for me to have enjoyed it, and the whole thing came off fake.
Aw, Josh knows we're just joshing.
But, back to that ring.
Somehow I feel Josh would want a diamond. Four carats. Cushion setting.
I think Josh is still on datalounge he just declines to post.
Uhm, who cares?
What was really sad about that clip was they trashed a very special, person moment for a few seconds of TV time, only to (a) be used as a gimmick to draw reaction shots from the nobodies in the cast [the camera gets the back of Josh's head for a part of a second]; and (b) the clip wasn't even used.
Oh, what a sweet memory.
I also love how Brent can't even propose without criticizing! Oy.
I just realized why the little one is such a cunt!
He's a psychopath!
He has the eyes!
I would have picked Josh as the one who would propose- he seemed to be the more "masculine" of the two. Then I remembered that I always thought that Brent seemed to dominate Josh in their relationship, so Brent being the one to propose actually makes sense. Have they married yet?
By the way I always thought that Brent is much more in love with Josh than Josh is with Brent. I wonder if Josh would dump Brent if he had other options?
