FOX News Anchor Shepard Smith's Boyfriend is Reportedly Strapping and Affectionate

Gawker called FOX News anchor Shepard Smith out in a post yesterday for a gin-fueled tantrum at a bar in NYC's Chelsea neighborhood last March, further shattering Smith's glass closet with a nugget dropped in the middle of its item:

S_smithSmith had arrived earlier that night with a straight couple and his own regular date, a muscular 6-foot-2 30-something white male, whom Bathtub Gin employees refer to as “his boyfriend.” Like most other nights—Smith frequents the bar, located behind a coffee shop on 9th Avenue, about once a week—the anchor’s attention fell on his date. According to Minskova and one other source, who have seen Smith and his date drink there on multiple occasions, the couple frequently holds hands and rests them in each others’ laps under the table. Nobody we spoke with, including several Fox insiders, knew the name of Smith's date.

Smith, who has been listed in OUT magazine's 'Power 50', inspiring calls by anti-gay conservatives for him to come out of the closet, is not out.

  4. He has called out FOX news a few times, Ive been wondering when they would try to out the guy and then fire him. The fun part being when he sues them for it.

  6. I'm not a FOX News watcher by any means but whenever I have caught a snippet of him on TV he actually seems pretty entertaining. And I've heard he's pretty liberal by FOX/conservative standards.

  7. @Jack M - Shepard is a conservative Republican closet case. OF COURSE he has a boy toy: it is part of the job description.

  8. ok, i'm sure there were still a few that didn't know shep is gay. and there are bound to be one or two others that don't know wealthy, older, gay men sometimes have younger, strapping boyfriends. still more might never have seen affectionate gay couples in public when one is a closeted public figure.

    other than that, is there a point to this breaking news story?

  9. He's been out to anyone with a brain for several years. He's gone off-copy to express pro-gay rights editorials on stories too, though very elliptically. How he got his job who can say.

  10. I don't understand this "outing". Yes, he works on Fox news, but he is not the hipocrital type who spreads homophobia only to hide his own shame.

    I think people must come out in his own terms, and outing is only justified when the guy (or woman) works actively against gay rights.
    Not even having a beard and lying justifie outing, at least not for me

  11. I don't know, it's 2013 now. There used to be "outing" etiquette, but what's the point now? What's the excuse? I'm not going to keep your secret for you, sorry.

  12. Who cares if he is gay or straight. Who cares who he is dating.

  13. Shep has been a consistent voice on Fox (Megyn Kelly, runner up) standing up for gay issues like marriage. He challenged Rick Santorum here:

    Don't knock him. He's one of the good guys (in hostile territory).

  14. He's one of the "good guys," you write? "In hostile territory?" He willingly accepts a paycheck from that "hostile territory." Sounds like a whorish hypocrite to me.

  15. Hooray for Mr. Smith and friend.

  16. Do you believe the story at Gawker? That after one drink he would become a sloppy spitting drunk? After all the source is so reliable: an ex-waitress. I believe he's gay. And probably a mannered one.

  24. Ok, Sean, your solution is what? Take him off Fox News? Pillory him? Explain HOW he's being a whorish hypocrite defending gay marriage.
