'QUEER EYE' CHARGES INTO SEASON THREE WITH EMPHASIS ON STRAIGHT GUYS' UNIQUE STORIES PLUS A NEW UMBRELLA TITLE

NBC Universal/Bravo News Release

SEASON THREE PREMIERES WITH SPECIAL RED SOX EPISODE TUESDAY, JUNE 7 @ 10 PM ET/PT ON BRAVO

NEW YORK In its third season, the Emmy Award-winning Bravo favorite, "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy", kicks off with a shortened title and an emphasis on more emotionally driven storytelling pegged to the straight guys' unique situations. Now titled simply "Queer Eye", the new season is set to premiere Tuesday, June 7 @ 10 PM ET/PT.

"The new abbreviated title for the series is a nod to the show's status in the world of pop culture," said Lauren Zalaznick, President, Bravo. 'Queer Eye' has become part of our everyday vernacular."

Season three kicks off as the Fab 5 (Carson Kressley, Jai Rodriguez, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia and Ted Allen) take on five of the world famous Red Sox (Kevin Millar, Johnny Damon, Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield and Doug Mirabelli) and try to reverse their curse of bad style. The Queer Eye guys descend on Red Sox spring training and turn the stadium's press room into a spa, complete with scented candles, a pedicure station, and a separate fashion area. Each player is outfitted with a new look and treated to an assortment of services including massages, pedicures, hair highlights and even a little back waxing! The Fab 5 also teams with the players' wives - Jeanna Millar, Michelle Damon, Karen Varitek, Stacy Wakefield and Kristin Mirabelli - to help the community raise money for some Florida little leaguers to re-build their baseball fields that were severely damaged by Hurricane Charley. These future all-stars are given the surprise of their lives when they are invited to play a couple of innings at the stadium with the Red Sox and the Fab 5! The Fab 5 continue to work their make-better magic on straight men throughout the season, with new installments that will make viewers laugh and cry in the same breath.

"We've put the spotlight on some intriguing subjects this season, ordinary people who've done extraordinary deeds as well as people who have an amazing outlook on life, but a challengingly poor sense of style." This season we've stepped things up a notch by focusing on compelling personal stories that will make this appointment television at its best."

Highlights include:

* Lee, a stay-at-home super dad to his eight foster children.

* Hector, a war veteran injured in Iraq, who returns home and adjusts to life in a wheelchair.

* Paulo, a new father of two-year-old quintuplets.

* Gary, a cystic fibrosis survivor who, against the medical odds, is about to celebrate his 40th birthday with the help of good friend, Boomer Esiason.

A "Queer Eye" for the Boomer guy?

Former Bengals quarterback Boomer Esiason will appear this summer in "Queer Eye," back for a third season Tuesday (10 p.m., Bravo) with an abbreviated title.

To broaden their appeal, the Fab 5 make over sports stars such as Boston Red Sox players Kevin Millar, Johnny Damon, Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield and Doug Mirabelli in Tuesday's premiere and people with "compelling stories," the network says.

Esiason, a CBS sportscaster, helps the guys assist a 40-year-old cystic fibrosis survivor. Other episodes feature an injured Iraq war veteran and a stay-at-home dad to eight foster children.

On the July 12 show, the "Queer Eye" guys scheme with Christian Hurst, 33, a 1990 Moeller High School graduate from Montgomery, to throw a surprise wedding for his fianc

I'm torn. Yes, the "Straight Guy" formula wore out its welcome. I mean, I live with a man who still thinks Brylcreem is the best hair product for his money and who looks hurt when I tell him no, he can't wear the same pants to work five days in a row. And for the first season the two of us really bonded while watching the Fab Five teach those hetero slobs what their long-suffering wives and girlfriends gave up on long ago. (Insert bad Carson joke here...) Then, well, we got the point and forgot to tune in for a season. So I guess it's a good thing that they dropped the "Straight Guy" from the show's title and are turning to gimmicky episodes like tonight's "make better" of the Boston Red Sox.

Caveman Johnny Damon and his equally scruffy teammates Kevin Millar, Doug Mirabelli, Tim Wakefield and Jason Varitek could all really use a makeover. But the focus is on a charity game to raise money for the Port Charlotte Little League, whose baseball field was destroyed by the hurricanes last year. Oh, and on Dunkin' Donuts. Instead of those exciting/humiliating shopping and salon trips the Queer Eyes usually take, they simply set up a spa in the Sox' Fort Myers, Fla., spring-training facility and make their victims wax their backs and deep condition their hair. Of course, that doesn't mean Carson makes any fewer one-liners. My favorite: When Wakefield shows off his right hand, which he keeps well manicured for his pitching, Carson shoots back: "In my line of work, they get mad when I hold the ball with my fingernails." Kyan, Jai, Thom and Ted hardly get a word in, except for some cringeworthy promotional statements about Dunkin' Donuts and BJ's Wholesale. Rather, we hear a lot from Millar

Last week's Red Sox episode was gimmicky sap, but this week's twist on the makeover day was sweet and funny: Five kids, five gays and a straight guy go to the mall. It's no wonder adorable Italian couple Paolo and Silvia haven't had a date in three years. How the heck do you get the neighbor's teenage daughter to baby-sit 2-year-old quintuplets? No matter how fab they are, these five guys have their hands full. First, during the ritual sweep through their style-troubled home, the guys got quite a whiff of parenthood, and we were pretty close to seeing Jai's culture-ific breakfast. We also saw Carson almost drop a kid after getting a swift kick in the crotch. As for the clothing Paolo's getting to replace his wardrobe of sweatpants
