The most charming celebrity, Neil Patrick Harris, was on CBS’s Early Show this morning to speak briskly about his Tony-hosting gig and about getting advice from Whoopi Goldberg and Hugh Jackman. The funniest part was when they showed a picture of a makeup-and-tattoo-covered, very serious-looking NPH In Cabaret (“I had to dye my underarm hair blue-black for six months”), but the weirdest part was when they showed him a picture of how he would look with Kate from Jon And Kate Plus 8‘s terrible haircut.
Why did they think NPH would care? And it’s sort of paparazzi-like that they’re asking unrelated celebrities to comment on the Jon And Kate scandal. Also, I totally think they asked him about that show because they think because he’s gay he must watch TLC all the time, which is a harmful stereotype. It was great how he basically completely dismissed the show, though. Fight the Jon And Kate Plus 8 power, Doogie.
