Posted on 01/13/2005 1:32:24 AM PST by kattracks
Perhaps "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" should be renamed "Queer Eye for the Scorned Gal."
Dawn Steele, a New Jerseyan whose ex-husband was featured on this season's premiere episode, says the furniture the Fab Five unceremoniously dumped belonged to her a gift from her late grandparents.
On top of that, she claims the renewal of marriage vows which the style mavens arranged for Army Spec. Ray Steele and his new wife Maria sidestepped the fact that the original wedding happened before Ray divorced her, making him a bigamist.
And the show made Ray, 38, look like a hero about to be sent off to war, when he really is a womanizer who left behind out-of-wedlock children, his ex-wife claims.
"Issues were raised," said Bravo, the cable network which produces the show. "We've looked into the matter and have determined the claims are not true."
The problem is that Steele and his ex-wife did not finalize their divorce until late September, leaving a precariously narrow window between that and the "renewal" of vows for another wedding to take place.
It's not a problem, said Ray Steele's lawyer, José Bastarrika; the Colombian marriage never happened.
"There was a ceremony with her family and friends for him to commit himself to her and profess his love," Bastarrika said. "But there was no marriage."
Dawn still maintains that Ray cheated on her and had two children with other women while they were married, and does little now to help take care of their 6-year-old daughter.
While the show stated that Ray Steele was supposed to be sent to Iraq late last year, he has yet to ship out, said Carolee Nesbit, a spokeswoman for Fort Dix, where he is stationed.

If her "grandparents" furniture was so sacred, why did he have it after the divorce?
Yes, my question too.
Lady, if they haven't shut down the queers, just how concerned will they be over a bigamist? At least he knows AC from DC...It's not as if they're operating in an arena of morality here.
Slippery slope BUMP!
They're about to start a "Queer eye for the straight gal" spinoff.
The men have been femmed down.
It's time to butch up the babes.
Being gay is soooooooo last year. Actually wanting to have sex with women is whats happening in 2005!
Bravo is nothing but a leftist-gay propaganda network. You got all the Queer Eye garbage, Manhunt, Runway and West Wing. If it wasn't for them showing old Columbo episodes I would have deleted it from my channel list a long time ago. The commercials they run during Columbo for there other programming is so bad I am thinking of deleting it anyway.
Third in the series will be "Queers who need to be turned into actual men".
Right? Hello? Is that in the lineup?
That he would rather face roadside bombs in Iraq says a lot about life with her.
"Actually wanting to have sex with women is whats happening in 2005!"
Then count me completely out.....:-P
Hey big fella....wanna see me in camo and work boots?
I saw the fa...uh...*fab* 5 take a perfectly good looking, mustachioed rock n' rollin', Levis-fillin' dude and turn him into a baby-faced wuss with a cashmere sweater and Chinos.
[And I didn't even mention the "feathered" hairdo]
I nearly lost my will to live when his blithering idjit wife applauded.
He might have formerly been "good-looking" but, if he allowed himself to be controlled like that, he was already a wuss.
Odds being what they are, you have a 50-50 chance of being right, anyway.
I told my fiance if that van shows up in our driveway Bravo would get some great footage of a shotgun being operated. New show? "OO Buck for Some Sick F***s" :)
Same deal here except it's a .12 gauge and AR-15.
[*after* the dogs have a little fun first!]....;))
I saw them interviewing the lesbian who is going to be doing the make overs on FNC yesterday. Since when did lesbians have a reputation for fashionable dressing??? LOL
The flannel shirt manufacturers of the world would argue that point....LOL!
No worries, you don't qualify for the show - gotta live in NYC to be on QE.
I told my fiance "I don't mind watching all the cooking shows (some of them helped my culinary skills) and the Lifetime/WE channel crap, but FGS turn that garbage off!" LOL She got bored with it anyway. Shampoo/Soap/Comb/Deodorant and a shaving kit. And maybe a little "Eu de Stink" once in a while. Anything else is bordering on faggotry, IMHO.
A gal at work talks about this show all the time. I'm guessing that their audience is made up entirely of women.
...I'd be a good candidate for their "style upgrade" and I should think about going on their show.
Gals, do you really want a pretty boy in chinos and cashmere, or a guy who knows how to handle a Sawzall?
So as politely and diplomatically as I could manage, I replied "what, and be turned into a castrated metrosexual wuss?!?"
Unless he's wearing a jacket and tie to go to church. ;-)
Every time I've switched on "Lifetime" it's a movie about some chick who "murdered her man and got away with it because he deserved it".
[we call it the Black Widow Channel]
The only cooking show I can sit through is "The Iron Chef".
I don't even know why.
[Possibly because I'm waiting for a full-blown kick-fighting brawl to break out]....LOL!
I do love the Food Channel shows on nostalgia foods and "How Do They Do That"? food factory tours.
You haven't Lurkedenough because you must've missed the "men and perfume" thread of 2 days ago.
It got pretty weird....;))
And no matter what, they better not have razor-edge creases in 'em!....LOL!
I once had a "pretty boy" husband.
His hands were softer than mine.
His idea of "house repairs" was a festival of half-@ssed jury-rigging.
Hubby #2 snags my stockings just by lovingly patting my leg.
He's a welder/metal fabricator and trike kit builder.
There's nothing he can't fix, including a broken heart.
Guess which one I'd cheerfully walk naked through the fires of Hell for.....;)
Food Channels cool. I actually dig "Iron Chef", don't care much for the American version.My fiance is totally hooked on "30 Minute Meals" It's not too bad,she's gotten some good recipes from it. I was on my days off, missed the Men and Perfume thread. I'm sure it was a funny one. "The Black Widow Channel" LMAO! No kidding!
"but for some reason these office chicks like guys in silk shirts and/or sweater vests."
Maybe because they're perceived as "non-threatening"?
You're my kind of gal 8-) But you should have asked a guy first. We know...
Yep. I can't believe this kind of garbage is so popular. We don't watch a single network sitcom and rarely any other shows on a regular basis. Catch some American Chopper now and then, Battlestar Galactica is coming on SciFi as a series but the previews show a nude woman from the back, so that disqualifies what would likely be a suitable show for the family. What Not To Wear is great!! If it wasn't for FoxNews, the History Channel, and sports we'd probably cancel cable!
I just want 30 minutes with Rachel Ray.
There's an American version?!?
Wouldn't be the same without that crazy-eyed grinning host...:))
I used to watch the one with the scroungy British kid who basically cooked gourmet meals from unidentifiable crud he got from the bottom of his fridge and vendors on the streets.
[the unoffical mascot of Lifetime is a female praying mantis....*snip!*...chomp chomp chomp...]
I call it the Stalker Channel. We is the We Hate Men Channel. 8-)
Some women wish their men would be more "feminine".
That's the -last- damn thing I'd want!.....LOL!
Hush up! You're being too logical.
I don't get "We".
[and I'm not missing much, right?]
I vaguely remember that show. LMAO "Praying Mantis" is the Kung-fu style I train. That's pretty funny.
I watch Monster Garage, Biker Build-off and all those shows with Himself.
Can't recall the name of the show where the guy in the garage is constantly ripping out and replacing stuff on stock trucks with Super-mega-Ultra Performance parts.
[I'm not even allowed to breathe in a distracting manner, much less talk during the "instructions" segment]...LOL!
Never heard of her.
I couldn't live without VH1 Classics.
I'm joyously reliving the 80s!....:))
Rachel is the chef on "30 Minute Meals". I find myself attracted to her for some strange unexplained reason.
"Wax on; wax off"
That exhausts my entire knowledge base of martial arts...:)
[but do I know a couple of nasty punches my dad taught me when they made all the prison guards take Karate lessons]
