Tila Tequila Takes Credit for California Gay Marriage Decision


Why did the California Supreme Court overturn the state's ban on same-sex marriage?

The reality TV actress told Us magazine: "It is because of me — I definitely think [my show] has helped the movement. Before it came out, everyone was still a little apprehensive about [same sex relationships]. Then they realized, 'Wow, everyone is really into this stuff, and it is fine.' The next thing you know, [gay marriage] is legal."

You're kidding! And all this time I thought it was Lindsay Lohan's doing!

  1. I personally would have placed the California Supreme Court more as VH1 fans.

  2. David and Bran, thanks for making the comments worth reading.

    i had no idea who this woman was, so i'm glad she spoke out about her role in shaping my state.

  5. What a dolt. I don't watch the show, but I heard on the radio yesterday that Tia went to visit the four finalists' families. The brother of one of the finalists, 11 years old I think, asked what "bi" was. When asked to explain what it was, he said something like, "Bi is when a woman dates two guys and two girls."

  6. If reality TV has taught us anything, it's that you can't keep people with no shame down.

  7. Never heard of this dumbass!! Let's give credit where it's due and that's to the thousands of gays and lesbians who have fought for the right to marry our partners for decades. Ms. Tequila can evaporate now.

  8. I wasn't surprise she said that. Her show proves she's willing to do anything to get famous. To paraphrase Margaret Cho, I don't think she's lesbian or bi, she's just slutty. She's pretending to be queer to advanced her career.

  9. Tila Tequila is an attention whore who trivializes same-sex relations more than anything. Her show on MTV is a form of phony acceptance based on titillation of straight guys.

    And MTV is clearly not inclusive in how it approaches bisexuality, especially when you consider how it won't allow bisexual males on its show. Thumbs down to Tila and MTV.

  10. The true barometer of MTV's approach to same-sex relations is in how it excludes bisexual males from its dating show featuring Tila. MTV thus practises a gender-specific double standard which panders to the sleazy straight guy fantasy.

    Message to MTV and Tila from this gay man: fuck off.

  11. Gay people have fought for gay rights for decades. They did it ensure that gay people and bisexual people could be who they are. They didn't do it so that skanks like Tila could exploit girl-girl action for the purpose of appealing to the fetish of straight guys.

    Tila, you're an insult to the gay community. And so is MTV.

  12. Wow, who knew this talentless, opportunistic phony had such a massive impact on the political landscape? Do the G/L/B/T community the single most beneficial thing you can and crawl out of the public eye immediately. Repulsive.

  13. OMG -- I LOVE bisexual Asian midgets!

  14. MTV is still broadcasting in this day of iTunes and instant gratification? I'll be damned!

    So....uhhhh....since MTV is/was Music Television - does this......Bourbon/Scotch/Gin/Tequila person.....sing? What's his/her/it's claim to fame?

  15. "What's his/her/it's claim to fame?"

    Knowledge of how to work a casting couch, and that's about it.

  16. PDQ, MTV has had little to nothing to to do with music for about the past ten years or so. I think the prime factor in landing oneself on MTV nowadays involves the mouth, sure, but it ain't for singing.
