“Kathy and I have built such a great chemistry in and out of the photo studio,” explained Mike Ruiz, currently filming his own reality show for the LOGO network, The A-List. “We had so much fun filming this latest episode. It’s always raucous pandemonium with Kathy – and that’s why I love her. It’s been some time since we filmed so I’m excited to re-live our hilarious hijinks when the show airs next week.”
