NATIONAL ENQUIRER Okay With Outing Jeremy Renner Comments (0)

I'm never clear on why the media (even the tabloid media) feels secure in outing some actors while ignoring obvious closet cases galore around them, but National Enquirer has decided that Jeremy Renner is fair game—they're reporting that he was arrested for trespassing in a gay cruising area back in 2000.

Talk of the town has been that he's gay, so this is not a gasp-inducing revelation, but it does make you wonder why they go to such lengths as to get married 'n' stuff. His marriage is coming to an end amidst allegations of fraud. Guess she hadn't heard.

And for anyone about to pipe up that being gay shouldn't matter, it does matter when it's something people are not supposed to talk or write about, so there goes that argument.

Look Who's Talking!: John Travolta's Ex Spills On Their Affair Comments (0)

John-Travolta-gay-sex-National-Enquirer


Doug Gotterba, who sued for the right to write about his long relationship with John Travolta, is teasing his story in National Enquirer (August 18, 2014).

He tells NE that they met in February of 1981 when Gotterba was interviewed to be Travolta's pilot, then offered a massage (gee, that sounds familiar) that turned into more.

According to Gotterba, Travolta was into threesomes and porn and wanted to make a sex tape, which Gotterba refused. (As hot as I was for Travolta in the '80s, I wouldn't have wanted to be seen naked next to that stud at his peak either!)

Remember the iconic photo of Travolta dancing with Princess Diana? Yeah, Gotterba had sex with him that night, too.

Gotterba eventually left John when the sexual demands became incessant (a good problem to have, sounds very Divorce Court). When the two ran into each other in 1991, Gotterba recalls asking Travolta point-blank if he still liked men or if his marriage to Kelly Preston had sealed the deal for heterosexuality. Travolta allegedly replied:

“Well, Doug, I still prefer men!”

And P.S.: Before anyone moans about digging into Travolta's private life, the same issue of NE contains personal details of the lives of: Drew Barrymore, Richard Belzer, Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux, Courteney Cox & Johnny McDaid, Bruce Jenner, Paul McCartney, Bill Clinton, Adam Levine, Ted Danson, Justin Timberlake, Kathie Lee Gifford, Sam Ronson, Ben Affleck, Lindsay Lohan, Bar Refaeli, Sean Connery, Paris Hilton, Donald Trump, Rosie O'Donnell, Justin Bieber, Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr, Selena Gomez, Tori Spelling, Robert Wagner, a slew of dead celebs from Marilyn Monroe to David Carradine, Nicole Murphy & Michael Strahan, Amanda Knox, Eileen Davidson, Burt Reynolds, Loni Anderson, Clint Eastwood, Pamela Anderson, Rick Salomon, Kendra Wilkinson & Hank Baskett, Warren Beatty, Madonna, Joan Collins, Britt Ekland, Goldie Hawn, Michelle Phillips, Leslie Caron, Diane Keaton, Diane Sawyer, Diana Ross, Kate Jackson, Carly Simon, Mamie Van Doren, Elle Macpherson, Raquel Welch, Julie Christie, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta Jones, Shirley MacLaine, Cate Blanchett, Anna Camp, Vera Farmiga, Thandie Newton and more.

Tom Cruise Will Probably Cancel His ENQUIRER Subscription...Happy? Comments (0)

Tom-Cruise-National-Enquirer-gay

Via National Enquirer (July 28, 2014): The great thing about Tom Cruise is that he totally doesn't mind speculation that he's a closet case, so National Enquirer should get away with this week's cover scot-free.

Paul-Lynde-RogerBut more seriously, this is all based on a NOVEL! Not a work of non-fiction. Although the book is a roman a clef (a term the tabloid puts in quotes and defines for its readers, BTW), The Actress by Amy Sohn is a work of fiction by a woman who never met Cruise.

Great publicity for Ms. Sohn, and probably dumb luck at that.

NE's piece has a dated feel regarding gay matters, including saying these are “nightmare rumors” and “sex slurs” and detailing his anguish at being portrayed as someone “leading a closeted homosexual life.”

As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.
