A Very Furry Queer Eye Special: Philadelphia Mascot Gritty Gets A Makeover | Netflix

Netflix's Queer Eye headed to Philadelphia for its fifth season, so naturally the Fab Five had to work their magic on Gritty, the Philadelphia Flyers beloved mascot.


The Philadelphia Flyers reported that Netflix reached out last summer while Queer Eye was filming. Flyers senior communications director Sarah Schwab said:

"We knew this crossover would be a humorous and feel-good addition. We also jointly agreed that in the end, Gritty wouldn't need much 'making better' and should embrace his quirks and look with confidence."

Orange Fluffy Mess To Game Day Best

In the video released yesterday, the Fab Five meet Gritty on the ice rink and learn that he was nominated by fellow sports mascot Phillie Phanatic. The Phanatic wrote in:

"I don't think gritty needs to change a ton. Maybe you guys could convince him that he doesn't need to eat a cheesesteak for every meal."

Jonathan Van Ness said the Fab Five's goal was to "take this orange fluffy mess to game-day best."

If you're a fan of Queer Eye and Philadelphia sports like I am, be sure to watch this hilarious crossover!

Teddi Mellencamp will reportedly not be appearing on upcoming seasons of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Beginning with season 8, Mellencamp has been a regular member of the RHOBH cast. The finale of season 10 recently aired, leaving fans waiting for filming to begin again. According to an exclusive source with Dailymail.com, Mellencamp will not be returning.

The anonymous source, who was listed as a "production insider," told Daily Mail that the RHOBH producers found Teddi Mellencamp to be "boring and stale." They also noted that the other cast members do not particularly like her.

The insider said:

"She is boring and stale and does not offer anything to the franchise with her robotic and staged delivery when interacting with the other cast members."

Mellencamp was reportedly almost cut last season but the producers decided to give her a second chance. At this point in time, the decision seems final.

Bravo has yet to comment about the casting decision.
