Without further ado, here’s our Top Ten list of the things that made us go WOW this week:
10) The View: 2o Years and Counting
Tom reflects on his time working on the juggernaut chatfest – The View – during it’s infancy when he worked for ABC Daytime. Did you hear about the feud between Joy Behar and RuPaul? See it in the video below (2:15), and check out the full ABC special The View: 20 Years in the Making.
9) Domonique Echeverria: The Girl Whose Ass Saved Her From a Suicide Attempt
James St. James recently sat down with designer and beloved NYC nightlife icon Domonique Echeverria who came to the WOW studio to tell the harrowing story of her suicide attempt last November when, after being over-prescribed the mood-stabilizer Lamictal, she leapt in front of a subway train. She miraculously survived (thanks to being hit ass first, which actually cushioned the blow), but later lost both an arm and a leg. Now she’s here to talk about to detail the events leading up to that day, her subsequent healing process, and where she goes from here.
8) Dr. Harold Bornstein: Trump’s Quacky Doctor
The latest to emerge from Donald Trump‘s clown car of characters is Dr. Harold Bornstein. He’s the man behind Donald’s bizzaro doctor’s note.
7) I Love Dick
6) Red River
Is the 1948 western Red River starring John Wayne and Montgomery Clift the gayest movie of all time? James thinks so. Check out the scene he says is practically gay porn above and peep the movie on Amazon.
5) The Ballad of Big Freedia
Big Freedia has had a big year with season 5 of her show Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce, her being featured on Beyonce’s hit “Formation,” her recent probation for 3 years for theft of government funds, and now her new single “Marie Antoinette” with Boyfriend. Check out the brilliant piece Pitchfork did on Big Freedia.
4) Scandinavia’s Slow TV
Netflix has recently added eleven “Slow TV” titles which are HUGE in Scandinavia. Slow TV, according to Wikipedia, “is a term used for a genre of live ‘marathon’ television coverage of an ordinary event in its complete length. Its name is derived both from the long endurance of the broadcast as well as from the natural slow pace of the television program‘s progress.” Think like the old yule log video people watch at Christmastime.
3) Spa Night
2) Making His Marc: Marc Jacobs & Tabboo!
What could top all of these? You’ll have to FIND OUT at 4:00PM EST and again at 4:00 PST (7 PM EST) on SiriusXM!
