…would you have picked to come out of the closet?…like yesterday on national television?
Okay, most eyes would go automatically to Kristy McNichol, who has been the subject of “is she a lesbian?” rumors for years a la Jodie Foster…she has always perpetuated the tomboy image…well, after a diagnosis of bi-polar disorder, McNichol has pretty much disappeared from the limelight…And good for her, she’s taught some acting classes and is a devout animal rights and environmental activist…yeah, not gay at all, but I digress.
Nope, instead the National Enquirer broke a story last/this? week, complete with pictures, that Meredith Baxter was spotted on a lesbian cruise and she seemed very comfortable…then pictures surfaced Tuesday of Baxter and her “girlfriend”, who seems comfortable wearing Birkenstocks…so yesterday, Baxter went on The Today Show to tell the world she’s a lesbian…and really?…I’m not surprised…of course, it’s always better to tell the truth and do damage control now…Baxter said she’s a “later in life lesbian”…That’s so perfect!…and all the stories mention, Baxter has been married three times and she has five children…they are all grown…she also said in her sit-down with Matt Lauer, that she could never connect to the men she was married to or in a relationship with…that’s the first sign!…it’s a connection I try to explain to myself to the many who ask why I’m gay…but I’ll leave that discussion for another time…this blog is about getting to the point without all the heavy stuff…Baxter has been in a relationship with building contractor (LOL!) Nancy Locke for the past four years…
And I find it ironic the day after I got my haircut, this announcement/interview took place…hmmmm?…I’m just sayin’!
