We Want Kirstie Alley on GCB, Y'all!

Kirstie Alley GCB MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy



This week sees the airing of ABC's Desperate replacement, GCB, where Real Housewives meets Dallas in this over-the-top, campy dramedy. It's good. It's not great. I like it. I don't love it. It shows great potential with good talent, acting, writing, and concept. I do feel a little duped, as I was initially just filling the void left by Pan Am's emergency landing. But, I'm not made out of gold lamé. I was willing to give these Southern Drag Queens a chance.


It is just lacking a slight je ne sais quoi. The good news is that I know what that "I don't know what" is: Kirstie Alley. That's right, ladies and gentlemen. She's at the top of her game, dying for a comeback, and has entertained us for years from a Vulcan to a barmaid to a fat actress and a dancing queen; who doesn't love Ms. Alley? She could give GCB a much needed shot if sass in the a$$ is needs. The idea came from Alley herself going nuts about the show on Twitter. My boyfriend is so committed to the cause, he's initiated a Facebook campaign; check it out!

Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the '70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael's first published book, Homo-Hero's Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the "Divas and Lassoes" panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his "underground" status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).
