That Lived-In Look Comments (0)

James-Franco-Scott-HazeNo idea if Franco hits that, but if I were rich, I would not have any roommates.

The New York Times apparently soft-outed James Franco in a piece that pointed out he lives with longtime buddy Scott Haze. It's all very Cary Grant/Randolph Scott, so I'm sure in 50 years an adult daughter of Franco's will be laughing off the rumors.

Name Redacted Blanked My Blank: Travolta Can Be Sued Over Confidentiality Of MSM Affair Comments (0)

John-Travolta-gay-Douglas-Gotterba

A court has ruled that Douglas Gotterba, who worked for John Travolta for years and allegedly had a torrid affair with him (talk about overtime), has the right to sue over a confidentiality agreement that Travolta's team says should restrain him from speaking (or writing) publicly about any private dealings between Gotterba and Travolta.

He hasn't won...yet.

I hate confidentiality agreements, and I hate when people—especially gay people—reflexively protect powerful closet cases. Yes, yes, there are plenty of people, adults, who are gay and aren't ready to actually be gay, yadda yadda. But by making gayness so special among all other secrets so that we get more upset when it is discussed than anything else, we're just marginalizing ourselves and agreeing with anti-gay people that gayness is some kind of extremely awful piece of information.

I hope he wins and I hope he gets to write the same exact kind of dishy tome countless heterosexuals have written about their heterosexual lovers. It's his life and his story, too—that should not belong exclusively to Travolta forever and a day, and I don't think the contract I saw—regarding Gotterba's old employer, not even Travolta himself—should make that be the case.

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.”
