Isaac Mizrahi and the Golden Globes.

by grimgraphix / January 21, 2006 11:52 AM PST

I didn't watch the Golden Globes let alone the pre game show (red carpet coverage) but there has been a lot of press about Isaac Mizrahi and his conduct in interviewing celebs. I personally think the guy was over the line and rude in his conduct.

What confuses me though is how his conduct can be viewed as different from the appalling conduct of some paparazzi? Should he get away with his behavior since he is a minor celebrity himself? Being a gay fashion designer who is used to fitting clothes on models does not justify groping female celebs in public let alone in front of the camera. What I really can't get is that his boss seems to be pleased by the nights coverage. Is this Howard Stern meets the red carpet reporting really wanted by the average viewer?

I seriously doubt

a straight man would have gotten away with the same antics, whether he was a fashion designer or not. Another regrettable double standard... Isaac gets to fondle Scarlet Johannson's chest while I do not... sigh.

I think whether you're gay or straight

You have a responsibility to be a respectful and decent person. Just because he's gay doesn't excuse loutish behavior.

If I were Miss Johansson, I would sue for assault. And if I were Ms. Hatcher or Ms. Longoria, I'd be consulting with my attorneys to see what they might come up with.

Totally disgusting. I'll not watch again.

I didn't watch ...

... but after reading the reviews of the show (one commentator described it as ''one long awkward moment'') and Mizrahi's behavior, I doubt I'll start watching in '07 or anytime soon!

Nail on head Cindi! There's something called personal space and simple respect for another individual. Gay, straight, man or woman, nobody has the right to invade that.

He forgot he was in front of the camera? Puh-leeze! The man has been out in public before. If he can't distinguish between behind stage at one of his fashion shows and a public event, he should stick to the former (if that!).
