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.

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.

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
|by Anonymous||reply 28||08/27/2012|
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.

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.

But, yes, congratulations and best wishes for many happy years together. Good for Brent for finally taking some initiative with the relationship.

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 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.

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 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?
