EXCLUSIVE: Homeland Security Agent on BRAVO Reality Show: “Look @ My Fruity Gay Marriage,” Whines About “Sex Drive Gap” – Violates DHS Policy

By Debbie Schlussel has learned that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) policy (and that of each of its sub-agencies) prohibits its federal agents from identifying themselves as DHS employees on television reality shows. Apparently, Jeff Pedersen didn’t get the memo. Or, more likely, an exception was made by the gay cabal that “runs” much of Homeland Security under lesbian Janet Napolitano’s, um, “leadership,” because Pedersen is putting his gay marriage in your face, and that’s part of “The Lesbionic Woman’s” agenda. (As I’ve noted on this site, there is a “gay mafia” at the higher echelons of DHS and its largest agency, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and they get special treatment ad absurdum while fostering a hostile work environment for straight agents, per Napolitano Rules.) Pedersen of the Los Angeles area identifies himself on the vapid new BRAVO show, “Newlyweds: The First Year,” as a “federal agent” and a “federal investigator” for Homeland Security.


Straight agents would be subject to termination or, at the very least, significant disciplinary penalties for identifying themselves as DHS employees on a reality show. And it’s embarrassing that agents of any persuasion would appear on any reality show putting their private “marital” relationships on display. It makes Homeland Security more of a laughing stock than it already is. I mean, do we really need Homeland Security agents whining on national TV about the gap in their sex drive with their much younger partners? (See quote from Jeff Pedersen’s bio, posted above.) And, then, there is the question of how much of “Newlyweds” is shot while “Agent” Jeff Pedersen is supposed to be on duty, paid courtesy of you, the American taxpayer? Pedersen is shown on the show with his “husband” Blair Late, a “former European pop star” (whatever that means–reminds me of Matt Dillon’s character in the movie, “Singles,” claiming, “We were big in Japan!”).

So, for which agency does Jeff Pedersen work? Officials from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA)–Homeland Security’s three biggest sub-agencies–have all denied having any agent by that name working for them, in response to inquiries from Each told me that Pedersen probably worked for one of the other two. However, after my inquiries, all references to Pedersen working for Homeland Security suddenly “disappeared” from BRAVO’s website page on Jeff Pedersen. Too late, though, because plenty of press puff pieces on the show already note he’s a DHS agent and so does the show. Check out this from the Wall Street Journal:

The Los Angeles couple, Blair and Jeff—a former pop star and a Homeland Security investigator—are separated by 16 years and a temperamental abyss. The 90-minute opener is a four-pronged prelude to “I do,” which in the gay Blair and Jeff’s case means a California-approved civil union. . . . Cast with people with little connection to “normal” life who will recite what’s expected of them because they want to be on TV. There is always the promise that something excitingly candid is about to occur, but it almost never does.

[Emphasis added.]

Sounds like like a real winner of a show. And if I were the new generation of Al-Qaeda, I’d add the above footage of Homeland Security agent Jeff Pedersen to my recruitment video. It’s embarrassing . . . even if his “husband” were a real chick instead of assuming the role.

Representatives from BRAVO declined to respond after several inquiries (and then quickly complied with someone at Homeland Security’s demand that they scrub their website of all mention of their agency).

If you know Jeff Pedersen and know for which Homeland Security agency he works, please e-mail me with details. Is he even still working there?

I really don’t care who Jeff Pedersen sleeps with. That’s none of my business. And its not really his business to give TMI to the public about his private life.

I understand being gay these days is considered “cool.” But there are limits to the celebration of gay rights. How about respect for others?

But does it make for a great Al Qaeda recruiting tool, showing degenerate America is. Never mind that the Muslim World is even far more degenerate.

I thought reality shows would be just a passing fad and we would be done with them. That was 12 years ago and it seems to never end. We can never go back to the good old days of Sanford and son and All in the Family Twilight Zone and Columbo. Think of any despicable behavior and before long there will be a reality show about it. More and more Americans are becoming numb to it and watch anyway no matter how boring and dumb this idiotic genre turn out. We are truly becoming the lost society.

A whirlwind courtship of a week? You really get to know your ‘spouse’ well, in a week. This type of careful consideration, keeping in mind the necessities of national security, is a reflection of the emotional maturity of this participant in gay marriage. But all the psychologists’ admonitions about emotional maturity when taking the big step of marriage fall by the wayside when they are talking about gays. The psycho (logists) forget everything they teach when it comes to their advocacy of gay marriage.

Little Al on May 16, 2013 at 7:29 pm

In the olden days, marriages were between family and close friends.

Now its a circus; its not so much a commentary on gay marriage as in the decline of respect for a vulnerable institution and we’re paying the price.

On the Bravo Channel and in our popular culture.

I have always been annoyed that homosexuals have co-opted the word “gay” (as well as the rainbow flag.)

I see nothing special, or particularly “gay” about men who are stimulated by the practice of copulating in each others’ rectums and mouths. In fact, it seems like a pretty somber task to say the least.

DS_ROCKS! on May 16, 2013 at 9:02 pm

I’m so sick of FAGGOTS throwing their sexuality in people’s faces. I’m not sure what form G-d’s judgement will take, but, something is going to happen, and they aren’t going to be diggin it.

RT on May 16, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    I suspect part of God’s mysterious plan against FAGGOTS involves striking down Touchdown Jesus in Ohio with lightning and causing $700K in damage to the monuments and structures built in honor of Our Father.

    Robert on May 17, 2013 at 3:53 am

As some women I know would say about this guy: “Such a hunk. Gay? ummmm, Such a waste”.

Not Ovenready on May 17, 2013 at 12:04 am

I suspect that this individual will be terminated shortly.

Worry01 on May 17, 2013 at 3:28 am

    Nah, in the federal government, everyone knows that the more incompetent, corrupt, lazy, non-working and stupid you are, the more you will advance and eventually cash out with a huge government pension.

    I am not sure who says being a sodomite is cool, thanks to indoctrination by way of the public school system, the media, Hollywood and the government, but it is simply nothing more than a chosen lifestyle. No one ever mentions that the ones that engage in that activity are the most hateful, rude, conniving, disrespectful self-serving group that always has an agenda to systematically destroy anyone or anything that does not support the massive destruction of a bond between a man and woman. This is especially true in the workplace. They go out of their way to cause trouble and if you do anything, which is usually nothing at all, they say it is “offensive” an they know that is a ploy that results in investigations, media and then termination.

    They will stop at nothing and as time goes on, they will just get more perverse.

    It is interesting to note that they embrace the practitioners of the religion of peace. Would they go to any Middle East county and publically espouse their homosexual tendencies?

I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

When Bravo first started, it was a great channel. I saw many, many foreign movies I might not have seen otherwise. Now it’s just another stupid POS channel with little or no redeeming value. I mean, you know, except for the faux horny housewives shows.

Pray Hard on May 17, 2013 at 1:01 pm

Awwwwww, the inclusiveness almost makes me weepy.

Pray Hard on May 17, 2013 at 1:05 pm

Go ahead. Pick up the soap. I dare you.

Jack on May 17, 2013 at 5:58 pm

Pedersen’s “wife” (as Late describes himself) is a former boy band member and is now trying to manufacture a reality show spin off career. No surprise that Pedersen likes them very young, most gay men do. I’m guessing Border Patrol for Pedersen (it has everything a gay man loves: butch uniforms, boots, and leather gear). Yuck.

King David on May 17, 2013 at 6:38 pm

Who could possibly look at those two flaming faggots and think that’s normal? Those people clearly lost their minds a long time ago.

Bomb on May 17, 2013 at 8:43 pm

Imagine if a heterosexual man went on a reality show, identified himself as a Federal Agent then rambled on about chasing pussy? That wouldn’t be tolerated, for that would be “inappropriate” and/or construed as ‘sexual harassment’…this is embarrassing. I honestly don’t CARE what consenting adults do, I just don’t want to hear about it!

#1 Vato on May 17, 2013 at 9:37 pm

He’s not an agent or even a government employee. A simple Google search reveals Pedersen is an investigator with a contract company called USIS. This company conducts background investigations on G employees.

PiLA: There are plenty of Jeff Pedersens in this world. I saw that LinkedIn result and had no way of verifying if it was the same person. Also, since BRAVO said he is a “Homeland Security federal agent,” that’s what I was looking for, not an employee of a company outside of government, since there are many Jeff Pedersens that came up in a google search. DS

Prada in LA on May 18, 2013 at 1:49 am

    Good work. So this guy is doing background investigations and determining suitability for the ‘real’ agents? I feel safer already.

    #1 Vato on May 18, 2013 at 9:53 am

    That is what the guy said..on the show. When he said it I knew exactly what he did. I think anything involving government get folks to exclude what they don’t want to be part of how they perceive what is government. You were spot on..

    Credo on May 18, 2013 at 3:42 pm

“Prada in LA” is correct. Based on the “” profiles for Pederson, it states that he has been employed since November of 2009 with USIS as an investigator and since 2007 he has worked as an “Ergonomic Evaluator/Return to Work Coordinator” with a company called Chavez-Dickerson Consulting. So it seems the DHS reference was scrubbed from the BRAVO web page not to cover anything up but because it was inaccurate.

Also at “” the profile for Husband/Wife? Blair Late, states that from September 2002 to January 2007, Blair Late was a member of the “European Hit Band, B3 and a solo artist with Columbia Records. Late also co-founded and runs a “Luxury knitted sweater line for men and women” called Crest & Letters.

He can do more tricks on an 8- inch p…k than a monkey can on a 20 foot flagpole!

chewinmule on May 18, 2013 at 9:14 am

Any updates Debbie? I’ve been reading your site for years and generally love the info you put out, but this is poorly done. Did you even do any research before you wrote this story?

PiLA: Huh? I did a ton of research for this. Here’s a tip: your browsing on google and jumping to conclusions is NOT research. I called BRAVO, DHS, ICE, CBP, and TSA. I also searched google as you did and had no way of knowing or verifying that one of the many Jeff Pedersens who came up as working for one of various companies in the U.S. is the guy on this show. And you don’t either. You just jumped to a conclusion without a shred of proof. That’s your idea of “research” and “well done”? That’s why you are only a reader/commenter, and I’m the journalist. Everything I wrote is factual and accurate. And where is your proof that this is the same guy? You have none. Just assumptions. DS

Prada in LA on May 18, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    Prada…I suspected something like this honestly, but I am more interested in knowing why/how a seemingly respectable television network said what they said and let this one slip. CIS/ICE/CBP all passed the buck when asked by the author about the purported claim of DHS employment status (re-read). Not too terribly worried about Debbie’s reporting skills honestly. I knew an FBI secretary years ago who always made it a point to say “I am employed by the FBI but I am NOT an agent”. As she was trained to respond. This guy knew better…

    #1 Vato on May 18, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    Debbie – no proof that its the same guy. I was only going off his LinkedIn profile that has his name and PICTURE on it…and said he worked at USIS. I suppose somebody could have just created a fake profile. Sorry to strike a nerve with my “poorly done” comment. Tried to soften it with telling you how much I love the info you put out. I’m still a DS fan even though i just got smacked!

    Please post any updates you get…thanks!

    PiLA: Must be a newly-posted pic, b/c when I went on the LinkedIn page, there was no photo, and, thus, no way of knowing if it was him. DS

    Prada in LA on May 19, 2013 at 6:44 pm

Maybe the government will charge Pedersen with impersonating a federal agent-NOT.

King David on May 18, 2013 at 7:25 pm

Lots of people in ICE call themselves “agents” but the distinguishing factor is that only HSI has “special agent/criminal investigator” 1811’s. However, even the current status of 1811’s has been deteriorated by the merger.

Now many still are “special agents” but are confined by management to their desks doing mundane, bullshit immigration clerk-work, such as processing, and filling binders with computer printouts, calling it an investigation. Now “processing” is what most of the former ins did, even the clerks; and “investigations” was just a word that in ins meant “to process” an illegal alien (for deportation, not criminally). That being said, this….person, Pedersen, could become the poster child for the new HSI special agent recruitment efforts (granted, the sequester must end), but can’t you see it, this is what “they” have created by destroying Customs, and reinventing ins into this laughing stock mess called HSI that is full of Clowns (Laughingstock-mess-that-is-full-of-clowns, a good Native American name)

In the old days the former ins kept their “agents” busy by assigning them to adjudicate residency petitions, and stamping them in at the airports, the ins “agents” would stamp them in one day, and in a couple of months would be out looking for them as visa overstays, great system!

So, this…person, Pedersen, could be an HSI manager one day, he certainly fits the profile that HSI management is looking for. Look for him a your nearest HSI office!

I would recommend to the vast majority of people commenting:

1. Getting a job. Smart small, find a hobby!
2. Sending this commentary string to the Arabs for a good chuckle at Americans at war with themselves and having too much time on their hands.
3.Seems odd to be commenting on a show that you are supposedly too disgusted to watch…hmmmm.

No, on the other hand, keep commenting! You make Jeff and Blair look normal!!
