THE SECRET’S OUT: A decade after the success of Bravo’s “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos have come up with a fresh take for the 2014 audience. The couple’s production company is behind “Secret Guide to Fabulous” which features four gay men who dish out advice on everything from entertaining, exercise and fashion, only this time hoping to lure a wider audience in need of some fabulosity.
Following in the footsteps of fellow Parsons professor and mentor Tim Gunn, the fashion component will be delivered by Rob Younkers, who appeared on the MTV show “Made” in which he mentored an aspiring fashion designer, as well as “All on the Line,” Sundance Channel’s design show. Younkers said the show will be “like hanging out with your besties, who give great advice and have an opinion on just about everything.” The show makes its debut Wednesday on the Logo TV network, which also is responsible for “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
