Hope you’re thirsty, hunty, ‘coz queen Jonathan Van Ness has some tasty tea for us about his early Queer Eye days.
During his appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, JVN was asked about the audition process for the Netflix incarnation of the makeover series.
“It was a three day, very intense ballroom Glendale hotel room situation,” he said. “It took, like a week and it basically felt like cheerleader try-outs from hell.”
“It was a lot of Miss Universe, a lot of heartburn. Being around so many talented people who all wanted the same thing, I just ate so many cookie pizzas at night from the stress.”
Professional shit-stirrer Andy Cohen then said, “I think the idea of all these gay guys in a hotel together auditioning for Queer Eye, they had to all be banging at night.”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. I was a single father,” a coy JVN responded. “I don’t know, I was very busy raising my cats and eating pizza.”
“There was maybe one boy,” he then admitted. “The [Fab Five] boys know. But they’ll never tell you, it’s very horrific…horrific in embarrassing terms. It culminated in the most embarrassing end to a first date you could ever…”
“There was, and it’s not me… it was the other person, honey,” Van Ness said. “There was a Prince Albert that was ripped out, before anything happened… So I lovingly refer to the whole experience as ‘bloodgate.’ It was very traumatic.”
For those of you who are a little rusty on your piercing terminology, a Prince Albert is basically a dick piercing.
So, yeah… thanks for that visual JVN.
