Bunky too? Who knew!

Bunky too? Who knew... that Bunky Miller, the bald gay guy from “Big Brother 2” in 2001, was from here? He was Bill Miller at New Richmond High School, where he was 1983 senior class president, on the tennis team, school chorus, and the newspaper and yearbook staff. Then he earned degrees in marketing and computer information systems from UC in 1989.
Bunky and Diane Henry, a former NKU student from “Big Brother 5” in 2004, are among the 20 candidates for “Big Brothers All Stars.” You can vote for your favorite cast member at
Deadline is 11:59 p.m. June 28.
Five years ago, Bunky was identified on “BB2” as a technical writer from Charlotte, N.C., where he was working at the time. He was nicknamed Bunky by coworkers in Charlotte, after making fun of the name a U-Haul manager had embroidered on his U-Haul shirt. He used it on his “BB2” application to catch producers’ eyes. It worked.
In 2003, he moved to Burbank, where he has taken improv and acting lessons. Earlier this year he started doing stand-up comedy as “Bill The Bald Eegle.” His goal is to get on “MAD TV” or a sitcom. (He was the King in his high school production of “The King & I.” Now he’s a member of the Gay Mens Chorus of LA.)
Bunky asked for WEBN, Q102 and WLW phone numbers, hoping to get some time on morning shows to promote his candidacy for "BB2." He says he wants to win the $500,000 so he can be financially stable and donate to his favorite charity – The Trevor Project, a 24/7 suicide hotline for teen-age gays and lesbians ( He volunteers there 10 hours a month.

Bless this mess
It’s not surprising that TLC’s new “Home Made Simple” show would shoot episodes here, since P&G products and its sponsor the show. At 1 p.m. Sunday, the first of four consecutive weekly episodes will feature Cincinnati area families whose lives are organized by the “Home Made Simple” team. First up: Cheri LaEace from Green Township, a mother of three and her messy basement and laundry area.
