Reichen Lehmkuhl, the square-jawed former U.S. Air Force recruit who found a measure of fame winning Amazing Race and later as Lance Bass's boyfriend, may at first glance seem to have it all: the calendars, the flight-themed, gay-man's jewelry collections, the underwear- model- search- winning boyfriend...Oops, not so fast, as a recent update to his MySpace page (the first place fans go to be informed of any major changes in his seemingly doomed personal life) suggests that yet again, all is not what it appears in a perfect universe filled with depilated abs and seam-compromised Speedo baskets.

Reichen has just updated his My Space profile so that his headline reads, "You Shady Lying Sack of Shit. You're BEYOND Gross. What an Idiot I Have Been!"
Reichen also posted a new blog to his My Space profile entitled Dating Tips for Hollywood:
"Tuesday, April 29, 2008 — Dating Tips for Hollywood
Never believe them when they say they're in love with you.
Never believe them when they tell you where their heart is.
Never believe them when they say they're only going to sleep with you, especially when there is a social climbing opportunity in front of them.
Never underestimate their need for celebrity, money, and fame.
Never believe you can fix it by being true or nice.
Never EVER believe love is more important to them than anything Hollywood.
Don't date in Hollywood. Realize that for them, it's all BUSINESS."
Words to live by, though we got a little bit tripped up on dating tip #3, "Never believe them when they say they're only going to sleep with you, especially when there is a social climbing opportunity in front of them." We find this confusing on so many levels. If your companion is honest enough to admit that their only intention is to bone you—whether for social-climbing reasons or simply because they "heard from a friend of a friend of Neil Patrick Harris that you fuck like a feisty piranha"—isn't that level of forthrightness something that should be celebrated? After all, successful relationships, regardless of how short-lived, are really all about keeping avenues of communication wide open.
