  2016 Goodbye. What a year. Some good. Some bad. Some unpredicted election results and deaths of some of our most treasured icons. It was a year that forced all of us out of our respective “Closets” as it were. Liberals, bigots, racists really we got to see each others true feelings. Everyone had an opinion about everything and social media became the main venting place for all to let each other have it. Facebook had a record number of unfriending and blocking situations that I’m sure mark Zuckerberg didn’t see coming. SO 2017. Let’s turn the page and take…

As your Cyber Main Gay and  self professed beauty junkie, you know that I sometimes have a penchant for expensive beauty products. I received a text yesterday from a woman who said “Harvey! $900 for a throat cream? That’s more than my mortgage! Have you lost your big gay mind?” Well she didn’t say “big gay mind” but I think that sounds more dramatic when I share it at cocktail parties, don’t you? Anyway, you get the point.  So I’m interrupting my 2011 Emmy Countdown to plant my feet firmly on the ground where many Americans are having a tough…

Yes my pretties! We are moments closer to the 2011 Emmy’s to be aired on FOX September 18th! You already know that your Cyber Main Gay get’s incredibly excited before any major star award events. It’s sort of like Christmas but with better wardrobe and lighting!  My next big gay fab pick is for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series.  Who could it be? Think of  the fabulous dressed up 1960’s. Think Sex and Cigarettes.   Since some of you weren’t alive then, here’s a link to Banana Republic’s new limited Edition Clothing line created by the show’s designer! http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/category.do?cid=69572…

As your Cyber Main Gay I’ve loved many fabulous actresses in my life.  My love affair with Barbara Streisand started the first time I saw “Funny Girl!”  Bette Davis?  “All About Eve. ” Joan Crawford?  “Mildred Pierce. ” Judy Garland?  “The Wizard of Oz.”  Rosalind Russell?  “Auntie Mame.” And finally as we say goodbye to the most beautiful violet eyes ever created-Elizabeth Taylor in “Giant.” I wanted to wait a respectful few days to say farewell to Elizabeth. Gay men take their screen love affairs with actresses very seriously. Now of course I’ve seen all of her films.   When I…

Girls,  I’ve been crazy getting my book ready for publication!  The book, which is the first in 3, chronicles my journey to the top of the lipstick pyramid and all the life drama that accompanied me on the way up!  I’m 19 on page one,  ending with me at age 39.   If you ever want intensive therapy, writing a book about yourself should be a definite option.  The number of Beauty Witches trying to keep me down and the incredible number of “Mr. Rights” I sent packing caused some major reflection last night, while I was using my Clarisonic cleansing…

As your Cyber Main Gay, it may come as no surprise to you that I love fantasy.  Love it!  After seeing the Wizard of Oz for the first time at 4 years old, I’ve always wanted to go “Over the Rainbow.”  I know that’s over the top, even for me, but I can’t help it!  Unlike Dorothy, I’ve worked in the beauty industry for 30 years, and I’m not afraid of witches,  good or bad.  I’m accustomed to those wicked  girls!  I can totally understand having a cat fight over Ruby Slippers!  There are a few witches that I’d like…
