Carson Kressley walks back his dig at the Queer Eye reboot
The original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy star has clarified his dig at the Netflix reboot that he made to Variety earlier this week. “I loved being a part of the original Queer Eye, and I love the reboot," Kressley tells People. "When I said the original was more groundbreaking it only meant that the original aired in an era when there was far less representation of gay people on television. We have come a long way and I am very proud to have passed the torch to the wonderful and talented new cast."

Netflix’s Queer Eye seems like an awkward fit in these "woke" times

Looking back at the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, the five stars had — with the exception of Carson Kressley — personalities that “were all pretty muted and down-to-earth,” says Kevin Fallon. “I had prepared myself for a cacophony of men in a**less chaps snapping their fingers and shouting ‘fierce’ every three seconds; in reality, they were certainly quippy, but also just normal, competent guys.” In the Netflix Queer Eye, “the men in the reboot are appealingly well-intentioned, but hardly as calibrated,” he says. The problem, he adds, is that the new Fab Five “subscribe to the modern reality-TV idea that LOUDER! IS! BETTER! At some point, this grating big-ness became the default for anyone looking to make an impression on reality TV, but it generally has the effect of seeming artificial and hollow. It’s a shame, because the encounters the hosts have with the men whose lifestyles they’re meant to rehab are, once the hysteria settles, quite genuine. Beautiful, even.”
