Transcript 20 AUGUST 27, 2004 www houstonvoice.com HOUSTON VOICE dish There's a Fine Line Between Telling the Truth and Talking Trash That's old news It's August and there's nothing much going on, so time to catch up on news you missed YOU KNOW DISH IS HARD UP FOR some dirt when she has to run a lead item about ROSIE O'DONNELL two weeks in a row. What do you want, people? It's August. Everyone, including celebrities, is too busy trying to go on vacation and hang out by the pool. This week, Dish is going to relax and get rid of all the old news that has been clogging up her inbox for months. That is, after she tells you about O'Donnell, who is headlining a HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN voter registration rally on Aug. 27 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Is this the same HRC that "uninvited" comedian MARGARET CHO from a party it held at the Democratic National Convention in July? HRC told Cho that her past comments against PRESIDENT BUSH were too "incendiary" and that her act would distract from the event's "message." And is this the same O'Donnell who made incendiary remarks about President Bush and the war in Iraq at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation Awards in April? Dish is wondering whether it's HRC that changed its "message" or O'Donnell. Yesterday's headlines Now, back to the orgy of old news. For those who don't watch British television — and that's all of you on this side of the Atlantic — NADIA ALMA- DA won the fifth season of the U.K.'s "Big Brother," a reality show that is similar to the "Big Brother" that airs on CBS. Across the pond, viewers phone in votes for which housemate they think should win, much a^tt^L like America's ^T ^fc "American Idol." jm ^B In early August, ^l^^R Almada received 74 P"*T(K percent of the vote to ____ yt win the final prize, ^k ^ about $117,000. ^^k ■ What many of —amm HLrfflL Almada's fellow con- Nadia Almada testants didn't know is that she is a transsexual. She did share the fact later in the series, and it didn't faze either the contestants or the voters at home. How's that for acceptance? In other reality TV news, remember the Fox show "Playing It Straight?" Well, Dish barely does either. Anyway, it was a dating show where a young woman. Jackie, had to find a potential mate from a field of 14 men, some Rosie O'Donnell is headlining a voter registration rally in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla, for the Human Rights Campaign. (Photo by Mary Altaffer/AP) were gay and some were straight. If she picked a straight guy, they split $1 million. If she picked a gay guy, he got all the money and she got to cry in her pillow. The show got canned after three episodes back in March because of low ratings. In July, Fox was nice enough to fill us in on who was gay and who was straight and what happened on the show. There were nine gay men and five straight ones, tough odds for Jackie. However, in the final episode she chose a straight guy, Banks. Even more stir prising, a year after the show was filmed, the two are still together. All the info on the conclusion is up on www.Fox.com. If you want even more zip in your programming, check out www.NakedNewsDailyMale.com. The all- male gay news version of Naked News, a Toronto-based Internet service that offers daily coverage from anchors with no coverage at all. The service was launched back in April. It's hard for Dish to keep cool when thoughts of naked newscaster JACK LANGE are getting her all hot again. With all the old trash out of the way, Dish will return next week with some fresh material.
