Queer Eye’s New Star Has The Internet's Love, But He's Already Divided The Fab 5

He came into our lives, and the world never looked so bright.

Queer Eye season 3 has dropped on Netflix and the whole internet is crying.

We’re crying over Jodie’s hair, Rob’s picture book, Isaac’s oar, Karamo‘s alarmingly literal metaphors, Antoni‘s constant posing to showcase his guns, Tan’s self-awareness over his French tuck obsession…

And Bruley, the French bulldog.

Yes, the new Fab Five loft in Kansas City, Missouri, has a dog. Bruley belongs to a neighbour in the building, and in the great Queer Eye tradition of working with what they have, the team adopted him to amp up the adorable.

How did we survive two seasons of this show without a canine addition?

(Side note: how did we survive without Antoni speaking French and constantly putting on adorable costumes?)

(By the way, he just says “Hi everyone, my name is Bruley and I am a little French bulldog.”)

However, there’s a side controversy over him by the end of the first episode.

Eating their zucchini salads inspired by Jodie’s home-grown veg, Bobby feeds a whining Bruley a forkful of greens. From his fork.

Cue Tan, king of the horrified expression:

“I’m just gonna reiterate how disgusted I am when we feed him with a fork.”

“You want him to eat with his hands?” retorts Bobby.

And the internet seems to be largely Team Tan.

However, Bobby, as usual, works five times as hard as the rest of the team, and so Bobby can do what he wants – and Bruley can too.

After all, who could resist this face?

And it’s not that much grosser than letting him lick your face:

The bigger worry, surely, is Antoni’s appetite – horses and squirrels are a no, but apparently French bulldog isn’t off the menu.

You can follow Bruley on Instagram @bruleybru – you know, just to keep an eye on him.

A Christmas Prince 3 Is Really Happening, And Yes, The Plot Is Exactly What You Think It Is

First comes love, then comes marriage, then...

The best thing about Christmas used to be presents, time off work, seeing family, eating yourself into a coma.

That was before.

Now, the best thing about Christmas is Netflix’s endless stream of festive-themed budget romcoms.

And the best of these – fight me, Princess Switch fans – is the A Christmas Prince series, which has gone from a cult hit to a full-blown franchise.


The story of Amber, the quintessential Romcom Journalist who gets assigned to profile the prince of a tiny European country and (MASSIVE SPOILER, YOU’VE BEEN WARNED, DON’T READ ON IF YOU’VE LITERALLY NEVER SEEN ANY ROMCOM EVER) falls in love with him, is the kind of formulaic brain-Cheezel fodder that may actually have been written by accident in one of those million-typing-monkeys situations.

It’s Peak Trash, and it’s incredible. (And star Rose McIver, a totally chill Kiwi, knows it.)

Anyway, it got a sequel in time for Christmas last year, where Amber and Prince Whoever Von WhereAreHis-ActualEyebrows got married even though it meant Amber would have to give up her blog – coincidentally, just a few months after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got married IRL and Meghan had to give up her blog.

And now Netflix has just announced that A Christmas Prince 3: The Royal Baby is coming in, oh, maybe eight and a half months or so?

Now, this might seem a little premature, but in a shocking coincidence, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have an actual royal baby due next month.

So weird, right?

Also weird: the baby is wearing a crown in this ultrasound? Is it actually growing a crown inside Amber’s uterus? Is the crown made of its bones? Is this series going to take a turn into full-on Twilight: Breaking Dawn level childbirth-themed body horror?

We’ll bring you all the news on the most anticipated royal baby of 2019 – the fictional heir to Aldovia – as details come to hand throughout the year.

Because like Amber, we are Extremely Good And Dedicated Journalists.

Jonathan Van Ness From Queer Eye Is Going Solo In The Netflix Ice-Skating Drama He Truly Deserves

Ice, queen.

From the very first episode of Netflix’s Queer Eye reboot last year, one of the Fab Five stood out.

Sure, Antoni has those bedroom eyes, and Bobby does all the actual work – but Jonathan Van Ness’ incredibly extra energy and GIF-able positivity was the most instantly iconic.

Can you believe this was from the first episode?

Now, the Gay of Thrones host, former political science major and king of unconditional self-love finally has his own show.

“She is euphoric to announce she has joined the cast of @spinningoutnetflix,” Van Ness posted on Instagram, tagging the account for Netflix’s upcoming ice-skating drama Spinning Out.

The caption accompanied the adorable latest installment in #jvnskates, his series of deeply inspirational videos where he learns to ice skate and serve totes ferosh spin realness.

I mean, technically it actually stars Kaya Scodelario (AKA Effie from Skins) as a skater who reluctantly pairs up with the bad boy of ice skating to try and save her career.

Jonathan will play Bruce, “a former skater turned big-time choreographer from Michigan”.

And yes, technically it’s a guest role, but that doesn’t mean it’s not his show.

After all, we all know JVN is a chronic scene-stealer – and no doubt Bruce will be good for so, so many iconic GIFs.

Which is, of course, how you measure who the real star of a show is.
