What Has Ted Haggard Been Up to in the 7 Years Since His Gay Sex Scandal? - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-09-09 at 9.10.15 AM

Ted Haggard, the evangelical superstar turned tabloid fodder, has been exceptionally busy in his efforts to rebrand his image after a highly-publicized 2006 gay sex scandal. In the seven years since that time, Haggard has started a new 'inclusive' church (albeit one where gay marriages are prohibited), shed his 'heterosexual with issues' label (he identifies as bisexual now), and even swapped wives with Gary Busey.

Now, in a video sent to "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" Haggard gives an update into his family, his marriage, and how he remains 'grateful' despite the struggles and scandals of the past.

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. his wife went on to state that her life hasn't changed at all because she's never had an orgasm, anyway.

  8. Sorry. Can't even look at that face. There's nothing behind those eyes. Nothing. It's like looking at empty space. I get sleepy.

  9. He is a sick and twisted individual that is involved in a sad state of affairs. He needs to be who he is on his own and not involve gullible straight women with low self esteem

  10. I am repulsed by Ted Haggard and saddened by his wife.

  11. When they have sex, they both close their eyes, so it works out fine.

  12. Without the burden of "traditional" Christianity, this man could have recognized himself as bi-, been open about it, married his wife, and had a happy life as a bi- man married to a woman.

    Biggest plus, we wouldn't have had to watch it all...

  13. Being Christian is a choice ...

  15. He said, "Within me, I have some wiggle room." Yes, Ted, we heard.

  16. In other news, Jim McGreevey is slithering back into politics. He couldn't turn down a $100K per year no-show gig on a machine controlled state commission.

  17. Did he marry Maggie Gallagher's younger sister?

  18. I didn't hear him say anything about having given up sex with men. So why are you all so bitter in your comments? Because you cannot bear the idea that a man can be a bisexual and a Christian (a real Christian, not a phoney one) and remain married to his wife and enjoy his children....and perhaps still have sex with men on the side, occassionally, without feeling bad about it?

    Maybe I am missing something, but I did not hear anything in their "update" that sounded either homophobic or as though he pretends to be anything other than bisexual, at this point.

  19. 2 of his 5 kids are throwing gayface in those photos - if it's true, i hope they're more comfortable in their orientation than their father.

  20. @Rick

    well... I can't entirely disagree with you on that. If he has chaged, then he has. But if he starts devolving philosophical, we must be ready. It's a possibility, but not the only one. We'll know him by his deeds. Wait and see.

    Can you spell or say "adultery? I suppose it is okay to not feel bad about that.
