  1. i don't think it's ever been a particularly deep, dark secret that david ogden stiers was gay. i had the opportunity to meet him once when i was an apprentice player at the san diego shakespeare festival (he was riding a skateboard around the lawn!) and even then he set off my 19 year old gaydar. he was perfectly charming to chat with.

  2. Yeah, Ogden Stiers played a very prissy character on MASH. Can't say this is a surprise, but I'm glad he felt comfortable revealing it and didn't take it to his grave.

    As for James Frey: hack.

    As for Gauguin and Van Gogh, I believe that Van Gogh was obsessed with Gauguin. The wording above suggests the opposite. Though it seems like a tempestuous relationship in both directions.

  3. What are folks' thoughts on whether or not Dom DeLuise (R.I.P.) was gay? I'm not sure myself.

  4. @Joel - I think DeLuise was outed by The Globe or some other tabloid back in the early 90's.

    Poor Oprah...she has very questionable judgement when it comes to people she promotes on her program -- James Frey, of course, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Dr. Phil, Barack Obama, Rhonda Byrne - author of The Secret...and giving a talk show to Rachel Ray. Wow. Not a great track record.

  5. Gay or not, it should be known that DeLuise has three adult sons, all of whom are TV and film actors in Hollywood. Did he come out as gay or was The Globe blowing smoke?

  6. An African American running for Congress in the conservative "soccer mom" environs of Contra Costa County? And he's gay too?

    If he actually manages to pull this off, then change really has come to America.

  7. Regarding the gay supreme court justice -- I thought it was a link to a story on David Souter.

    @Julius - I would imagine we'll be hearing more about Deluise's life soon. I tend to believe the story because he was part of that whole Burt Reynolds group with Jim Nabors, Dinah Shore and Charles Nelson Riley. There seemed to be a pattern among Reynold's friends.

  8. Sometimes madness is just,well, insanity or if you prefer, twisted genius. Must everything be about unrequited homoerotic longing? Judging by his art, and his sojourn in the South Seas, Gauguin showed zero sexual interest in men. As for Van Gogh, I don't think we will ever know.

    Now on that actor from "MASH", the real question is why Hollywood then and now feels a need to make WASP males prissy martinets,(Frasier, anyone?). Stereotyping other ethnic groups is a big no-no, and should be. On this and until recently, on LGBT issues,the Hollywood crowd had a double standard.
