    Bitch-Back! Not-So-Sexy Glee Sound Off!

    Glee, GQ Cover Terry Richardson/GQ

    Dear Ted:
    Regarding the Glee shoot. The issue is not the right of the actors to pose provocatively, the issue is displaying actors who are pretending to be children in provocative poses. I'm not a fan of censorship, but I'm even less in favor of art that portrays, glamorizes or endorses the sexual exploitation of children.
    —Deborah

    Dear Principal Buzz Kill:
    They're not in a sandbox playing with dolls, Deb. Sure, it's risqué, but it's more of the barely legal babe vibe and not a pedophile goldmine. These pics are no worse than glorifying Miley Cyrus or Taylor Lautner, who ya know really are underage. Actually, the Glee spread is better. Much.

    Dear Ted:
    Might be a bit of a weird question, but is Cory Monteith not as toned as his castmembers? Most of them have done raunchy shoots, and while he was in the GQ shoot he had like a minimum of three layers of clothing on all the time. I haven't seen any hot pictures of Cory. He should really show us some abs if he has them!
    —Bastiaan

    Dear Ab-B-Gone:
    I can understand that the dude may be a bit self-conscious about his body. I mean, he is cozying up to two gals whose looks made even my jaw drop (damn, Lea Michele where've you been hiding that figure?!). But—at least this time—it's more of a "need to know the audience" thing. GQ is for "gentlemen," after all. If you want shirtless Cory, tune into Glee Tuesday night. Or maybe the next issue of Playgirl?

    Dear Ted:
    I have been out and proud for 20 years now and with all of the recent suicides and assaults in the news I have been batting around an idea in my head. Here goes: What if 10-20 major news outlets got together and outed all gay and bisexual public figures (celebs, athletes, politicians etc) at the same time during a huge news conference? The number of people outed would be so stunningly large that the effects could be positive for all involved. The celebrities would be free to live their lives, suicidal gay children and adults everywhere would have this group to identify with and the rest of the population who have idolized these public figures their entire lives might just gain a new perspective on the issue. Litigation would be tricky, if not impossible. I realize that this is a radical idea but this could be just what the world needs to finally wake up and starting treating each other with compassion and understanding. My pup and I thank you for all that you do.
    —Seattle Fan

    Dear Good Luck:
    It's so extreme and against everything I stand for, I say...go for it!

    Dear Ted:
    All these Ryan Gosling sightings are making me happy! What's going on with him these days other than "dating Blake Lively" (which will never happen)? He and Carey Mulligan are doing a movie together, so if the rumors about the end of Carey and Shia LaBeouf's relationship are true, any chance of Ryan and Carey hooking up?
    —Ailish

    Dear Drive Thru:
    There's always a chance, but wouldn't you hate for sweet, innocent, gorgeous Ry to be her rebound guy? The two would definitely make a cute couple though—and make way more sense than Carey and Shia.

    Dear Ted:
    Are Maribeth Bush and Cruella St. Shackles good friends? My 15-pound rescue cat wants to know!
    —Leslie

    Dear Blind BFFs:
    Uh, no, Leslie. What a bizarro pairing. These two would be pulling each other's hair out. Way too much diva ‘tude for one room. Hell, maybe even for all of Hollywood.

    Dear Ted:
    When do you think the news will get out that Drew Brees is Pepper Harthman?
    —Bill

    Dear Poor Sport:
    Probably never...because he's not. Pretty good guess though, Bill.

    Dear Ted:
    Call me cynical, but I have problems really believing Taylor Swift is being entirely genuine with her veiled hints about which songs are about Taylor Lautner. I still get the feeling that these two weren't serious at all, if they were actually really dating that is. What do you think? Genuine emotion on her part? Or a way to cash in with the Twi-hards by pretending there was something real there?
    —Lily

    Dear Speak Now...or Never:
    Let's just say I wouldn't call you cynical.

    Dear Ted:
    Your column makes the day so much more interesting. With the cast of Lord of the Rings recently featured on EW, I just have to ask, how many of those nine yummy actors have been Blind Vices?
    —Nikki

    Dear Frodophile:
    No more than half.

    Dear Ted:
    I've recently become a bit obsessed with rapper Drake. Anything on him?
    —Fashion

    Dear Thank Me Later:
    He's got a bit of an ego—sure that doesn't surprise you though, most rappers do—but he's more or less chill. Aren't you far more interested in his oft-rumored beau Nicki Minaj though? Such a fab gal!

    Dear Ted:
    If I'm correct in guessing who JJO's and DDD's beards are, it would seem as though they have more work to brag about than their men. Why would two actresses with more credits on their résumés than their men be bearding anyone less than A-list?  What would they get out of this arrangement?  Wouldn't they want to trade up?
    —Janele

    Dear A-List Lessons:
    They would want to trade up. Which means you're not correct, doll. Sorry!

    Dear Ted:
    I have some Hollywood fashion questions: (1) Why does Katie Holmes wear ballet flats when alone and six-inch heals whenever she is with her already shorter hubby, and (2) since the Olsen twins looks like homeless people who live in cardboard boxes, why are they launching a line of clothing?
    —SeaBee

    Dear Fairly Good Questions:
    First, Isn't it obvious? Second, because the people who will buy it have cardboard brains.

    Dear Ted:
    Have you heard rumors of any of your closeted Blind Vicers contemplating coming out in support against bullying? Kisses and licks from all my shelter dogs!
    —Heather

    Dear Spirit Day Hooray:
    Nope. Hollywood is just one big bully in itself. Nobody thinks about that when trying to out the DL guys here.

    Dear Ted:
    You know I love you, Ted, but I guess I'll keep asking until you answer since I'm pretty stubborn. Are Brangelina lying low these days, or are people afraid to discuss them since their lawsuit? I can't believe they suddenly turned over a new leaf. What's up, Ted?
    —Muah

    Dear Project Jolie-Pitt:
    Ha! They can sue all they want, but that won't stop people from writing about them. Honestly, think—like Team Awful—most places are just kind of bored with ‘em.
