Queer Eye captured the hearts in Gay, Georgia, and now the Fab Five is taking over Yass, Australia!  (Yes, that’s a real town!)

After two seasons of “Yass” jokes, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France, Antoni Porowski and Jonathan Van Ness descended on the rural town earlier this month to “make better” not one, but two men, including 54-year-old George, a single father and rancher who focuses more on his work commitments than his family.

“I do not think George has ever had four American gay men with one gorgeous Pakistani Brit ever come at him so aggressively for cuddles,” expert groomer Van Ness jokes about the hero, who was nominated by his son Levi.

While Karamo, Tan and Jonathan turn their attention to mentally and physically transforming George, Antoni and Bobby rebrand a local restaurant and pub with a completely new interior design and menu. (No avocadoes for Antoni this time!)

And the Fab Five even become Australian royalty!

The guys were surprised with a special ceremony by the Mayor of Yass, Rowena Abbey, who crowned them all Yass queens.

Recently, Bobby, Karamo, Tan, Antoni and Jonathan spoke about the cultural and social impact the Netflix reboot has had on viewers around the world, and how they continue to tackle newfound fame together.

“On a personal note, I’m so incredibly proud of the way that I think each of my brothers and cast mates have tackled the electricity and how grand this whole thing is. I feel like it’s just exploding so quickly, especially with Season 2 dropping,” Antoni said at the 2018 Changemakers Award ceremony in New York City on Tuesday.

“Not only on social media but when we get together we don’t see each other. The fact that we all get to experience this as a unit, and I think it’s been unifying for all of us,” he said.

The tragic news of celebrity chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain’s suicide started a ripple effect Friday, prompting friends, fans and colleagues to acknowledge how they would remember and honor him. One such mourner was “Everybody Loves Raymond” creator, Phil Rosenthal, who announced during a screening at the Austin ATX Television Festival he would be dedicating his Netflix food/travel series “Somebody Feed Phil” to Bourdain.

“I’m exactly like Anthony Bourdain if he was afraid of everything,” Rosenthal said, while promoting the show’s upcoming second season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “And so my show, of course, is a take on his type of show. Just to say that means that he invented an entire genre, so I want to dedicate not just this episode to him but my entire series.”

“Life is about travel, the beauty in life, the love we find, the joy we have, the laughs we have together, so that’s what I’m dedicating the rest of my life to,” he added.

Bourdain died Friday at age 61 as a result of suicide, CNN reported. According to the BBC, his body was found in a hotel room in a Strasbourg, France, where he was shooting an episode for CNN’s “Parts Unknown,” now in its 11th season.

Rosenthal said before screening a new episode of “Somebody Feed Phil” that he was “shocked and saddened this morning” by the news of Bourdain’s suicide.

“I still am very sad, but I want you to know what an inspiration he was to me and probably all of you — anyone who travels, anyone who eats,” Rosenthal added. “He evolved from a chef and a food traveler to a world-class journalist.”

Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all North American and Latin American rights to “The Happpy Prince,” an Oscar Wilde movie written and directed by, and starring Rupert Everett, the company announced Friday.

The film, which premiered last month in Sundance, also stars Colin Morgan, Edwin Thomas, Colin Firth, Emily Watson and Tom Wilkinson. “The Happy Prince” screens Saturday as a special gala at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Everett plays the great Irish writer Oscar Wilde during his last days, with his body ailing and heavy, his mind spinning — but his flamboyant irony and brilliant wit very much intact. The film follows Wilde’s last travels through England, France and Italy.
