Gay But Broke - Lainey 2/20/08

From Laineygossip - 2/20/08 -
Heterosexually attached for a long, long time, he recently faced his inner gay and admitted the truth. His partner apparently took it well. As well as any woman can under the circumstances. She felt much better when she found out how much of the bank account she was entitled to. And given that he was the one walking, and he is the one who’s famous, he’s also the one who has to pay. A lot.

So now he’s broke – relatively speaking. In Hollywood terms, I mean. Lost his job, no work on the horizon, he seriously considered coming out as a way of “reinventing his image”, not for gay rights but because he needs the money. Only problem is, he was told over and over again that “no one will care if you’re gay”.

On the flipside, a fake Hollywood romance with a famewhore like Denise Richards for example won’t fly either since the ex will flip her sh*t and out her himself, preferring to be passed over for a mo over another woman. Me too!

He was encouraged to do Dancing with the Stars but pride got in the way. If things don’t turn around, it’ll be a last resort next season.
Update 5/1/08 - it's NOT The Rock, Brendan Fraser, Matt LeBlanc, David Hasselhoff, Sean Penn, Babyface Edmonds, Eddie Murphy, Tate Donovan, Antonio Sabato Jr, John Travolta, Don Johnson, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, James Van Der Beek, Scott Wolfe, Robert Downey Jr, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jerry O'Connell, Johnny Knoxville.
See our guesses in comments!

* This BI is suspected to be Dylan McDermott.

I have to think about this some more. Someone recently divirced. Ex-wife not famous. Now he's out of work. Wait, not necessarily married/wife. Need to brainstorm this one.

Brendan Fraser.

Long rumored to be gay and in a marriage of convenience and recently split. Don't know about the "Lost his job, no work on the horizon..." thing, though, as he seems to have another Mummy movie and two two other things coming out soon. Hmmm.

Melly said...

Oh yeah, and THE ROCK was in one of the Mummy movies...

Brendan Fraser was just ruled out today, along with Matt LeBlanc and David Hasselhoff. Dylan McDermott has been a popular guess on the facebook page, but I really have no clue!

What about Sean Hayes? He was never really open about his sexuality but he was rumored to be joining Dancing with the Stars and then backed out. And people won't exactly care if he came out.

blurry vice said...

Thanks for all the insight and guesses. I am mostly on my own here these days and having a hard time keeping up!
Yeah, I didn't think Brendan Fraser cause he has a few movies coming out. He could have been Corny Beefy though.
Anyway, I have been brainstorming this one and have come up with:
LUKE PERRY. I know, I have suggested him for a different BI last week but he keeps popping back into my head. He is one of my faves (I had the huge poster in the 90's) and also was nice to me in real life!
Anyway - He and his wife split back in 2003 so this isn't news. But his wife was some random model. He hasn't been doing much lately. And I think the "Dancing with the stars" might have been a hint to 90210. His costars Jennie Garth and Ian Ziering have been on that show.
Anyone with me?

what about vin diesel?

I just had a "eureka" moment. what about Wayne brady? just saw him in a promo for that game show. It could be him - divorced fairly recently.

blurry vice said...

Yeah he would fit. Except I think this person is broke and the career is going nowhere. Someone who was considering Dancing with the Stars. Wayne Brady is hosting Don't Forget the Lyrics so that is a pretty good gig for him right now.

Dylan McDermott, recently separated and with Big Shots just cancelled?

blurry vice said...

Dylan McDermott is a good guess. Looks like Lainey has stopped eliminating people for this one.

Nikki said...

DEFINITELY Luke Perry

blurry vice said...

I really like Luke Perry for this too. I wrote to Lainey asking about him for this and she never eliminated him. Plus the clues about Dancing with the Stars, that I mentioned in my comment above, really point that it is him.

What about Jude Law - Lainey just posted an item today (Wednesday, October 1st) and she mentions that he's broke from his divorce, and hasn't had too many successful films lately...

It's Charlie Freakin' Sheen... No big surprise there; yes, he LOVES women and I buy it(and so has he), but it is what it is...
