It was back in February that Logo, the MTV sister channel that had been dedicated to LGBT content since its launch in 2005, announced that it would be going more mainstream.
A sure sign of that new direction came this week when it was learned that the channel is canceling The A-List, the Real Housewives-style reality show that was marketed with the slogan ‘housewives with balls.’
Logo has not made an official announcement but cast member Reichen Lehmkuhl has tweeted about the cancellation: ‘The A-List New York will NOT be back. Official word. So long boys. What a long, strange, trip that was.’
Lehmkuhl, who first achieved reality show fame by winning CBS’s The Amazing Race with then-partner Chip Arndt, later dated Lance Bass and appeared on A-List with current boyfriend, model Rodiney Santiago.
He explained in a separate Facebook post: ‘Logo said, ‘[they] are changing directions. A-List isn’t a match for that direction.’
