Letter of Apology to Reichen from Dan Avery at Next Magazine
You tell me if the tone of this email is slightly different from the actual article in Next Magazine calling people on the A-List “vapid queens”. Which tone is the real tone?
Thanks for your email. I’m sorry you found my write-up in the TV column offensive. We’ve followed The A List from before its debut, with a cover story on people’s perceptions about the show, and have continually covered appearances and events with you, Rodiney and other cast members in our blog, the Nexus.
I have been writing about LGBT television for over a decade, and I understand that what we see on reality TV are “characters,” not fully fleshed-out representations of private individuals. My comments about the show were meant to be cheeky, not hurtful, and they are of course entirely subjective.
