Question: Does Money Buy Happiness…? Our Take: “Most people will instantly think no but it’s a much harder question than that. We believe it really depends on who you really are. For example, let’s say happiness for you is paying money to not watch someone suffer through hard times. Now you can make a lot of money and hate all […] via What’s Your Take?

  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 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…

  Hi Ladies! So your Cyber Main Gay has been very busy with the NEW “ASK HARVEY” advice column for Betty. Look for the first video installment next week! Thanks for all the facebook messages and twitter drama! So many questions to choose from. I’ll try to get to them all. In the mean time, I’ve come across a new idea about losing weight. Like many of you, I’ve tried every diet on the market. I’ve decided that beauty is not a number. Not your age or dress size. It’s about finding a healthy weight and a radiant complexion!  …

Okay girls! Put on your big girl panties for this one! I’m just like you in the mornings  looking at Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ while sipping a delicious cup of coffee sweetened with International Delights French Vanilla. Sugar-Free of course!  Recently though, as I open up Facebook, I’ve been seeing  20 posts in a row that say “Please Help! I only need one more pig to be the King of Farmvile.” Really? 20 posts? Now I’m not against gaming and I will be publishing a column about women and gaming soon! I personally like the game Cat Shot! But…

Girls life is so short! Last night I’m reminded of this in a big sad way. As I am preparing  my Betty column to launch my new book “blush: the unbelievably absurd diary of a gay beauty junkie”,  http://www.amazon.com/blush-unbelievably-absurd-beautyjunkie/dp/1477508813 the universe decided that our fabulous Nora Ephron is needed elsewhere in the universe. I’m sad to say that the person who inspired me to actually become a writer and publish this book died yesterday. When I read the first post about her death I couldn’t believe it! A world without Nora?  I sat, just starting forward into space, thinking how…
