Lance Bass told Extra that it was a Page Six item that his mother read that eventually forced him out of the closet, but the decision has turned out to be a winning one for his career.
“A little announcement and you’re everywhere. What do you know? I’m totally happy, I’m a completely different person, I think. It just sucks with all the lies you have to tell…It’s been crazy, cause everyone’s kind of been paying attention to what I’m doing now. Everyone’s been very supportive.
Bass tells the show that he’s working on a sitcom pilot with former bandmate Joey Fatone and a radio countdown show in Las Vegas.
