Interviewing Jeremy Fontanet Cullens

To see Jeremy walk in a room one can’t help but notice him. His stats you’ll find below but to me and I bet anyone who witness his stature strut by would be in awe at the very sight of him. He looks like an great adonis walking amongst us simple mortals. He is undeniably shy and humble, something hard to believe considering his beauty but it’s very true. I’ve known his husband Scott Cullens for a good few years now and once we finished our third interview together for the blog I knew I wanted interview his husband. In all honesty Jeremy had some worry that he wouldn’t be interesting enough for others to want to know about. But as you will read ahead, he absolutely is! The man is accomplished, intelligent, well-thought and has already achieved more than many ever will. I introduce to you, Jeremy Fontanet Cullens.

Planning Summertime in Las Vegas

Am I really talking about summer already? OMG, as the kids say! Wonky-face emoji. Sunshine emoji. Swimmer emoji. You get the point. I’ve just realized a spring/summer trip is sneaking up on us next month and here I am thinking about sliding into the tanning booth beforehand for some Sin City glow. I don’t want to scare the aqua revelers at the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas when we descend upon the resort for culinary money shots and a blended cocktail or mixed spirit. The planning continues here…

Benefitting Well in the Desert Charity

During the Christmas holidays I stopped by local non-profit Well in the Desert to drop off a bag full of clean clothes and was quickly humbled by what I walked into. It was busy day here at home when I felt inclined to tear through my drawers and closets to fill up a rolling bag that was sitting sadly alone in the garage. I’ve always loved a minimalist way of living. If I’m not wearing or using it, tell me again why I have it? This was one of those days. I zipped it up and placed it in my trunk for a delivery a few days later.

An Interviewer’s Trilogy – Scott Cullens

This is the third part of what has become a trilogy of interviews with reality star, fitness model recently awarded for his disciplined physique, and all around down to earth caring gentle man Scott Cullens who I’m glad I can say I know well. He has always been a major supporter of Team Steven and we always find something to ki-ki or giggle about via text when the moment moves us. I see him daily at the gym putting himself through the rigors of someone dedicated to not only looking good and staying healthy but appreciating every moment he humbly receives. He spoke to us twice before, here in 2013 and in ’14, as well. I love his honesty and believe he truly enjoys stopping his crazy pace to become reflective on memories past and hopes for our future in such turbulent times and climate.

In Awe of Aria Las Vegas

Maybe I should contact Las Vegas Tourism about making the new slogan for Sin City #CantStayAway! Because quite frankly I can not. I just got back last Monday from a whirlwind excursion to Vegas for the night but am just now catching up by telling my tale. I always get busy at the beginning of the year and this one is no exception. I booked a one night stay at Aria Resort & Casino and grabbed up tickets to Michael Jackson ONE before getting on the road for a 24-hour heyday of escapism, inspiration and a needed round of shopping for upcoming gigs. Here’s the Tea…

Christmas Magic in Sin City

Another Vegas trip for the record books! Man, we love that town. I just sat down from being away with my husband for 3 days during our annual Xmas excursion to Sin City. It’s not only our escape but our gift to each other for Christmas because it’s something we both enjoy. I even took a strand of holiday lights and draped them over a tall lamp in our suite. We brought our few gifts we wrapped up for one another, as well. Yahass, Queen! I make sure we do it the way I see best. (cue laugh track.) Grab the leftover eggnog and let me share the majority of what happened in Vegas since it clearly won’t be staying in Vegas.

Ultimate Southern Christmas Magic

I just got back from Nashville for my annual trip home to see mom, visit with good friends and spend time in a city I know very well. Born and raised in the Bible Belt of Tennessee, I felt its tight grip as I maneuvered bullies, hate while trying to figure out who the hell I was. It didn’t come easy. But when I decided that if people were going to stare and talk about me paying me more attention than perhaps I deserved I made damn sure I gave them something worth noticing. It helps that I’m a natural born performer, eh?! When I go back and drive the same streets remembering how it and I once was, it grounds me more than any other thing I can ever do. I appreciate what I’ve gone through because I have lived a full life. Seeing my girlfriends who I grew up with and knew me before I became who people (believe they) know now, I realize I’ve gone out and lived the dreams many others haven’t been able to do nor chose to do. And again, I’m humbled.

Best Thanksgiving Dinner Ever

Poinsettia ChristmasHappy Thanksgiving! I just walked into the house and the smell is amazing. My wonderful husband deboned a turkey, stuffed it with cornbread dressing gig, bound her back up and into the oven to cook. It’s primarily for me. It’s not something he would do normally but he knows that I absolutely love turkey and dressing with all the trimmings. Always have! I truly do have the best husband in the world. I agree with your thoughts. We planned on having a few people over today who sadly couldn’t make it for various reasons so we’ve delivered plates to them and enjoyed a nice quiet dinner together and a bottle of the new Beaujolais Nouveau. And dinner is served…

A Gay Man’s Opinion of Election ’16

Emjoi Explanation - Steven MichaelThis story has a different ending than what I had hoped and planned for originally. It’s been hard not to comment and curse at the chaos happening in our country, the United States of America. To be quite honest it’s been difficult to focus on because it’s all so ludicrous. I’m a true democrat and I voted for Hillary Clinton. She is and was my choice for POTUS. Hillary has the most job experience of anyone who has ever ran for the office before and was/is more prepared than any of her opponents. If Bernie Sanders had become our party’s nominee I would fully support him and what he wanted to do. I didn’t know him going in but after time realized he was a wonderful representative of our democracy. However, the people spoke (and a few others got involved) and Clinton was our party’s nominee. I was thrilled. History was made! Our dream was clear and reachable. Victory should have been ours. But sadly it wasn’t to be.
