Gossip So Good, It's Got To Be Gay

Gina Gershon, Anderson Cooper
Even though AC Slater couldn’t save Broadway’s A Chorus Line – and even though I’m not typically attracted to male dancers – even I have to admit Chorus Line star Nick Adams is a hot piece of ass.
Though Mario Lopez was allegedly pissed he had to stand next to someone with better body definition than him on stage, the boys made it work and gave gays two for the price of one when they stripped down to their tights and danced their asses all across the stage. Too bad Nick walked away with the “best biceps on Broadway” title. Mario probably put a pipe bomb in his locker.
Nick’s been quite the Broadway player for the last several years, doing time in everything from Chicago to The Pirate Queen. And when he’s not on stage, the gay undies industry has taken notice, casting him as the face/bod of their latest brief.
Cuz you know when underwear wants you, you’ve officially made it.
Though Chorus Line is officially closing this summer, Nick’s assured a long run in something else. Get a load of these good looks if you don’t believe me.
What a week – while one Lesbian icon is accused of banging a former president, another is busted for trying to score crack.
And shockingly, neither story involves Amy Winehouse.
Just days after Vanity Fair hit shelves with a story suggesting former President Bill Clinton had become more than just friends with actress Gina Gershon, the Bound star hit back with a letter from her lawyer calling the accusation a pack of lies and saying she’d only ever been in the same room as the president three times – and other people were present.
And unless Gina’s channeling her inner Cristal Connors a la Showgirls – in which case, she’d probably enjoy giving Bill a bit of lap action while Hill looks on – I’d have to wager Vanity Fair went out on a limb with their claim. Sure, it was all very passive-aggressive speculation that Bill’s spending too much time in the company of women on the road – but implying that you’ve taken another girl’s hubby to bed is a pretty bold statement, one Gina obviously wasn’t willing to take lying down.
In the two page letter drafted to Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, Gina’s lawyers say the actress is deeply “offended” by the accusations, has the utmost respect for the president and Senator Clinton and demands a retraction.
That’s a long winded way of sayin, ‘I’m gonna mess you the fuck up if you don’t take it all back.’
Frankly, she could have summed the whole thing up with a one word letter: ‘Ewwww.’
Here’s a pic of Gina at the Out 100 party before presenting Annie Lennox with an award. Does that mean she’s fucking Annie too?
At least she’s doing better than Tatum O’Neal. Look, if she’s telling the truth – which crack heads aren’t known for – I’m thrilled the cops busted Tatum before she fell off the wagon. But did she really have to use the whole I’m at a low point because my dog died’ excuse?
I mean, I get that pets are our friends and sometimes family members, but sending you into a dark alley for crack, pipe in tow? That’s a bit much.
And seriously, where does one get a crack pipe on a Sunday night? If she’s been sober all these years, does she really still have one just lying around?
Despite whether or not this was really her first time falling off the wagon, a chipper looking Tatum was an open book with the paps Wednesday, even going all Mother Hen on them and making sure they didn’t fall off the curb while they filmed her.
And just to let us know she’s still in touch with her former, fucked up self, in her saunter through the lower east side, she even stops off to get the opinion of some junkies on taking things one day at a time.
Really stopping a crack head for his two cents with TMZ filming? That’s so Courtney Love.
Hell – maybe I do like Tatum O’Neal after all.
In other recovery news, a sober Lindsay Lohan is getting all sorts of domestic with SaMANtha Sandwich Ronson, hitting up Gelsons for groceries and holding hands in public. And when the paparazzi get all up in her face, Lindsay lets out a whopping big holla, tells ‘em to fall back and chill out.
Then big burly Sam gets all protective and forces the paps out of their way so they can get to the car.
I love that Lindsay totally dyked out. I mean, I don’t know that she’s the best representation of the gay community, but she totally supports the idea that you can’t control who you fall in love with. I mean, there she was, one of the hottest pieces of ass in Hollywood – sexy men from far and wide would have paid out the nose to be with her and she picks this miss. Shit, it must be good!
Meanwhile, career wise, Lindsay is stepping away from films for a while – after seeing I Know Who Killed Me, her agents probably changed their numbers – and focusing on her music career. Wait, she still has a record deal? First single “Bossy”, written with Ne-Yo, hit radio this week. It sucks ass.
So does not being invited to your former co-star’s big gay wedding. When George Takei announced he was the third celeb who was going to take advantage of California’s Gay Marriage ruling – Ellen Degeneres was the first and if Channing Tatum ever returns my calls / texts / emails / IM’s / telegrams, he’s the second – like any good gay man should, he and partner Brad Altman went right to work at planning the ceremony. But at 200 seats, not everyone can come – including Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner.
"We have only 200 seats,” George told AP Radio. “Our contact list has, like, 3,500 names, so we have to whittle it down and I don't know if William Shatner is going to make the cut."
Such a popular homo. Does William even want to go to the wedding? He’s probably still pissed about that roast when George said something about fucking him up the ass.
The most disgusting image to enter my head since Lisa Lampinelli called out Bea Arthur at Pamela Anderson’s roast as “the only person in the room with a bigger dick than Tommy Lee.”
In slightly less vomit inducing news, while recapping the ever-exciting developments of Barack vs. Hillary, Vol. 3,245, Anderson Cooper got political analyst Donna Brazile all hot n’ bothered when he told her he wanted to be her boo.
In the video clip, Anderson wants to know something Barack might have told her that no one else knows. “Anderson, you’re not my boo,” Donna answers. “I wanna be your boo,” he counters.
Please – Anderson doesn’t wanna be her boo. He wants to be her bitch… take her out to the clubs and parade her hot momma ass around.
And you know Donna feels the same about silver fox. Just look at her stumble over her words at the 30 second mark – ‘Are we still on TV?’ – cuz’ you know she’s itchin’ to cut to commercial and bed down his ass.
And finally, nearly three years after she told the world she and Stuart Townsend would not get married until gays and lesbians had the right to do so, Charlize Theron is sticking by her words, telling Glamour Magazine she’s appalled by the way our relationships are treated in this country.
"Even when I was a little girl I never dreamed of the white dress and all of that. I want to be clear: I am not judgmental about marriage. I am judgmental about how our government doesn't want to see the reality of gay and lesbian marriages."
Hey now, Charlize – now that’s a true blue friend. But, in true gay form, if you ain’t gonna marry Stuart, pass the buck, girl.
Alrighty, folks – the time has come to say goodbye. Until next we meet – take time to stop and smell the gossip. – Issued by Gay Link Content
