Will A List Return?

Hello All!

I know its been a while please forgive me for not updating. I am back in NY and loving every minute!

The last time I was in New York was November 17th for an appearance in New Jersey so that doesn’t even really count.

After we finished season 2 of the show I needed a break. As everyone knows that watched the show it was very intense and behind the scenes wasn’t any better. For 10 years of living in NY I have only seen my family for weekends and at holidays. So I spent a lot of the winter when I wasn’t traveling at my place in Louisville, Ky.

I feel recharged and I see the city with virgin eyes again. The day I got back I walked around for hours just taking it all in. I have had some great meetings and I am putting positive energy out into the world.


For everyone asking me if the A List NY will return. This is the time of year when we hear if the show will be returning for another season. We had heard last year in January and then start the whole process of preproduction. Unfortunately we have no idea at this moment if the show will be returning. I feel rude not responding to your tweets or facebook messages on my wall but I have no more information. This obviously is difficult for everyone involved as we need to plan out what we will be doing for the rest of the year. In my heart I feel the show should come back for another season. I would like for everyone to see where Austin and I am today. My relationships with the other guys is pretty good. Reichen and I caught up a few days ago and had drinks with the old executive producer of the show. From what I see on facebook Rodiney is back from Rio and safe in Miami. I love him and I think we will always stay in contact regardless if the show continues. I haven’t seen or talked to Ryan or TJ in months. I have no hard feelings towards either of them but I think there is some negative energy between us and I am not sure why. I feel the show was made because of the people I have named. Anyone else was there for the wrong reasons and is not worth mentioning. I truly believe it is a wonderful show and I hope that we all get a chance to film together again.

I had been hearing rumors that Logo was going in a different direction this year. We will all have to wait to see what happens. This article was put out a few days ago so I don’t know what will happen.

Regardless of what happens my life is not dependent on this show. I am thankful for everything I have learned from this experience and I will always be grateful for what has happened since its premiere. When you met me I was consumed in the NY rat race and needed to see myself on TV to be humbled. I was after what everyone else had and would have never stopped. Nothing was ever enough and I based my happiness on the salary I was making. Today I am the opposite. I would gladly go work at Starbucks before I ever accepted my old position. My life is mine now. The phone rings and it is someone calling for me not asking me to get someone else. I decide my future and for the first time ever I am content with where I am in the present. Of course I miss the pay checks but what I gave up to accept it was never worth it. Tansxl would have never been as successful if it wasn’t for the show and I will be forever grateful to Logo for following the beginning steps of my company. I am thankful for all of you who have stuck with me. You watched the show and supported me when I needed it most.

When I hear news I will keep you updated. Wishing you all a wonderful work week! I hope you are doing what makes you happy!

All my love.

xoxo
