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!
