Design Star - BREAKING NEWS!


They are talking shit about me on the message boards at HGTV.com!!!! Apparently, a fan of my recaps posted a link to my latest Design Star writeup. And then the shit hit the fan - people started calling me mean, racist, HOMOPHOBIC (happy Gay Pride, you stank bitches!), and WORST OF ALL - UNFUNNY!!! Hey, I can handle homophobic and mean - but UNFUNNY?!? How dare you!!! I put a good 20 minutes into that last recap. It was practically a masterpiece!

Check out the message boards here. You have to be registered to comment - and apparently if you use certain tagged words, your comment must be approved by a moderator. When I commented, I got tagged and have yet to be approved.

UPDATE: The comment police over at HGTV have taken down the entire thread. What a bunch of uptight bitches!

But, Darling Dust Bunnies, I have EVEN BIGGER NEWS. Yes my dears, it's a Gay Pride Miracle! As a result of my notoriety on the message boards, someone sent me some pretty good inside information....

Sexy Daddy MIKEY V. IS GAY!!!!!!



Now I don't know if the person who sent me this information was trying to smear Mikey's name, but they should know that around here, being gay is GOOD THING. This, my friend, is most welcome news indeed.

Check out this article about some trouble that Mikey V. got into. My tipster also said Mikey and his man are registered as domestic partners in Broward County, Florida. I couldn't dig up any kind of confirmation of this, however.

So to Mikey V. I say - HAPPY GAY PRIDE, DADDY. And have I got a "project" for you...

Look for my Design Star mini-recap tomorrow afternoon.

Hey David -- Happy Pride Day to you. I sent you the info re: Mikey V, but not to smear him. We're proud of Mikey. Mikey's proud of Mikey. He supports the S. Florida GLBT community, has stood up for gay cops, and is a real role model. He's already out -- so I'm not outing him. But those other two gay designers on DESIGN STAR are so incredibly irritating -- AND not nearly as "fantastic" as they think they are. (Especially the INCREDIBLY irritating Michael Stribling, who is NOT fantastic.) I just think America -- i.e. middle America -- should see that gay designers can ALSO be tough, macho, talented, work to protect their communities (as in risk their lives as a policeman), and be incredible all-around guys like Mikey V. SO GO MIKEY V!!

That's great. You are really making a name for yourself and just think, I can say I was here when it all went down. I'm so happy to hear the news about Mikey V. I hope it is true so I can leave my guy and spend the rest of my life with him.

I hope someone good doesn't go home tonight.

Some interesting Mikey V news:

Mikey V's significant other, David Bowles.

http://www.elitestagers.com/home_staging_bio.html

Although HGTV lists him as "single" on the MySpace page the created for him. I guess HGTV only wants their "out" designers to be screaming queens like Michael Stribling or Sparkle.

And while you are on the MySpace page, check out the video interviews, and how most of the S. Fla male anchors call Mikey a "very old friend" -- lipsmacking included. :-)

Mikey is so hot.

Jennie said...

Wow, did you get some panties in knots! Way to go, gorgeous! They need some lightening up over at HGTV anyway.

Curt said...

Good for you, girl. Any publicity is good publicity.

Your blog is to the HGTV message boards as Cristal Connors is to Nomi Malone.

OK, Mr. Dust. More Mikey news to come. In the meantime, just think of me as your own "Deep Throat." (You know, from Watergate Days. Oh, look where your mind went first!)

Howard said...

Unfunny? Really? Unfunny? Those people obviously have their heads up their asses, next the their sense of humor. Say what you want about the content, but dude, you are funny! For the record, I love what you write, and find you neither homophobic nor racist.

So happy to hear your latest Papi crush is a member of the family. Although I was kinda hoping your announcement would have been about hearing from Dancetestant Michael.

Happy Gay Day to you, my friend!

Sorry you had to see that, David. I told you about it earlier but didn't know what I was doing so posted as anonymous. Hopefully I'm posting as myself now, but I don't know. Many on HGTV board are VERY uptight, to put it mildly. Also HGTV message boards are censored. For instance, if I wanted to say to someone "You just don't like Michael S. because he is gay" I would have to type g a y because hgtv has filters that catch "trigger words". I didn't know "gay" was a bad word before I joined hgtv's message board. If I get past the filters, someone still could report me and my post would be deleted. It IS possible to have a little fun on those boards, but you can bet some will scream their heads off if you do :) This blog is a nice change of pace from that and it IS funny, so keep it up.

David Dust said...

To Mike, Jennie, Curt, and Howard - thank you darlings - as long as they spell my name right, it's ok with me.

And to "Deep Throat" - anyone named Deep Throat is MORE than ok in my book. "Dust Bunny Deep Throat" DOES have a certain ring to it. Keep us up-to-date on the Hot Daddy Mikey V dish!

And to darling Vicki - first of all, thanks for giving me the heads up. And secondly - WOW, there are some uptight biatches up in the HGTV.com. My first post was flagged and never published.

I was wondering why my haters were typing: "h*o*m*o*p*h*o*b*i*c". But on second thought, I'd be angry too if I had to type a "*" between every friggin letter! No wonder they're so bitter!!!

XOXOXOXO

I was just filled in on all the ruckus!The hubby is enjoying a glass of jack and told me of the uptight bitches on the HGTV boards and I just laughed me ass off!You go girl!You really do have a wonderful community here.And to say you are unfunny! The nerve!

mikeinbama said...

This show is full of shit! How is it possible to be in the bottom two or three every week you have been on the show and still don't go home. The fix is in. They are going to keep Tracee on the show to keep up viewership.

VickiD said...

OK now I am DYING to see what you say about tonight's episode. You sir, are addictive. It's like you're the crack of the blogging world. Hmmmm oh wait...that sounded sooooo wrong... :X

Renee said...

WOW, there are some uptight biatches up in the HGTV.com.

That's the understatement of the century. What a bunch of freaks.

Joy said...

Well, WE know you're funny, entertaining, and adorable. So what else matters?

Hi David. I am a fan of your site. I wrote a really dishy thread tonight on the HGTV boards about Daddy Mikey's big breaking news, and also an homage to your own extraordinary blogging talents. It got something like 500 reads, and THEN the HGTV Nazi's deleted the whole thread, and suspended my account. So, I am wondering, just WHO is h*o*m*o*p*h*o*b*i*c now, anyway?? :-) I want my mom!

Keep it up -- love your blog. And your friend VickiD is really nice! She was a fellow Mikey V admirer, before my show was canceled tonight. I bet she wouldn't have suspended my account!

oh. no. they. di-int.!!!

oh, IT IS ON NOW!!!!!

People!!! He's being FUNNY!! I can see by reading the comments on that site that the poeple there have NO IDEA what funny is...B.o.r.i.n.g. While I DO like HGTV, that site has got to go.

Tranny, You're the best and you KNOW it! Don't you ever let stupid people stop you from being YOU and from your hilarious re-caps!

and he's GAY??!!! WHY??? I tell ya, all the good ones are gay! You lucky boy, you....

xoxoxoxox

PS> Will I be reading about you in US magazine soon? You are really getting a name for yourself! Perez Hilton better WATCH OUT!!!

Joy said...

It goes with the territory. When you're famous, not everyone is going to praise you. So man up and have jokes ready for retorts or just ignore 'em.

VickiD said...

I think David is taking this with humor so don't worry. I doubt he's at home crying for his mom.
The person calling him mean cracks me up because there's hardly a person on the HGTV board that hasn't said some very mean things on there. They just think it's ok because in their opinion, the person they are making nasty remarks about deserves it. They also complained alot about what a mean biatch Michael S. is.
Sorry you got banned from the board, Justin.

JustinVsf said...

Thanks Vicki. The morning after, I consider it a Badge of Honor to have been kicked off the HGTV boards for discussing Mikey V's sexy, macho fabulousness, and his newly-revealed gayness. The show is so awful this season, half the viewers are undoubtedly only sticking with it in the hopes he will finally take off his shirt in some future episode. I know I am!

As a Republican (I know you are shocked) and a white woman (no major prejudices my way) I just want you know that I find you highly amusing and I love reading your blog daily. I read the stuff at HGTV and it almost makes me want to boycott (almost but I won't because its summer and what else am I going to watch). Once I got over the boycott thing I laughed my ass off (OK I am a liberal Republican) at the tight asses that exist in this world. So many are so worried about making others mad that they forget to try to find humor in any situation. My opinion is, if you put yourself on reality television than you open yourself up to comments galore. So continue with your biting humor and please know that not all conservative people have a stick up their ass.

As always, love you and love your work. Tivo Mom

David Dust said...

Dearest Tivo Mom - I have always appreciated your support. It's nice to know that people OTHER than liberal hippie gay commie freaks enjoy my blog!! :)

Both of my parents happen to be Republicans, and they too are just as fabulous as can be - and aren't uptight at all. And frankly, I didn't even equate the stick-in-their-asses HGTV commenters as conservative or liberal - just EXTREMELY uptight and hyper-politically correct. One gal posted how "hysterical" my blog post was, but when others started complaining, she completely changed her mind and said I was being "hurtful". Ummm, wasn't I "hysterical" 20 minutes ago, lady?!? What happened??? Grow some balls!!!

Seriously, if you're going to be on a TV "reality" show, you're fair game for commentary. I TRY not to be overtly mean, and I realize the producers portray certain people a certain way, but that's the way it goes. If you have thin skin - don't go on a reality show, and don't read blogs.

Tivo Mom - as always - thanks for reading!!!!

XOXOXOXO

John said...

You're homophobic?!?!? How the hell did they come up with that one?

theminx said...

Judging by the thread names, many of the HGTV forum posters are about as mature as those on the IMDB forum.

We over 12-year-olds think you are fab, and funny as hell. mwah!

SailorAlphaCentauri said...

So this is what happens on parts of the 'net I fail to visit? Wow. The level of maturity there has to be so high that nobody gets it. Not even the posters. What do they know from funny, anyway?

Timmy said...

I don't read your blog for a couple of days and I come home to this!?!? LOVE IT! You've made an even bigger name for yourself. And like I say, when they stop talking about you and looking at you, it's time to worry.

Mark in DE said...

WTF??? Not funny... now THAT'S a low blow.

Trust me darling David, because I know, you are VERY funny AND clever. Anyone who doesn't understand that either hasn't read your blog or is stupid.

Keep doin' what you do!

And that is awesome news about Mikey V.

Mark :-)
