WTF, I MARRIED A GAY MAN: Michele and Marcus Bachmann and 10 other Women Who Married in/Famous Gay Men

In case you’ve been living under a rock or thought Liberace was straight, don’t start feeling bad for Michele Bachmann because she married a self loathing closeted homosexual. Yes, she married a man who goes around talking about suppressing your sexual impulses and “experimentation” while taking hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money to fund the clinic he owns with Michele  where he offers his services as a  reputable Doctor of Clinical Psychology– which he isn’t because he  got his PhD in clinical psychology on the internet.

Yes, he makes Carson Kresley look like John Wayne. Yes, their clinic was just busted for engaging in “reparative” therapy–counseling gay people that they can “become” straight (how does he know, you might ask?)– which is discredited and prohibited  by the American Psychological Association.

Yes, she’s a vehement opponent of gay marriage. How else are delusional straight women going to find husbands if gay men  can legally marry other gay men?  It should be in the Constitution, for God’s sake!

Their sordid little story is just a Mormon and  a Roy Cohn shy of “A Gay Fantasia on National Themes.” And by Fantasia, I don’t mean Barrino, Marcus.

Yes, Michele and Marcus are in denial but don’t feel  too sorry for them.  And, no, having children with a woman does not prove you’re straight.

Look at this list of couples who went on a cruise down denial.

Ariana Huffington and Michael Huffington. 1986-1997.

The heir to a family fortune, Michael Huffington, announced publicly that he was bisexual in 1998, though rumors were rampant that he was gay during his Republican Senatorial bid against Diane Feinstein in 1994.

In 1992, Huffington was elected to the House of Representatives from California’s 22nd District (Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties). He spent $5.4 million dollars on his campaign.

After one term in the House, Huffington spent $28 million dollars in a bid for a seat in the United States Senate in 1994. In the Republican primary, he defeated William E. Dannemeyer. At the time, Huffington’s was the most expensive campaign in a non-presidential election in American history. Huffington lost in the general election by 1.9 percent of the vote to Dianne Feinstein.


Fran Drescher and Peter Jacobson. 1978- 1999, separated in 1996.

“I saw three psychologists through our marriage that said to me, ‘You’re straight. You’re not gay. You may have thoughts about it. You’re not acting on it. Other men have these thoughts.'”

The one place Fran and Peter say there were never problems, however, was in the bedroom. “We had great sex,” Peter says.

“We always used to think that we must be having better sex than our friends because he was a very sexual man,” Fran says.

Diane von Furstenberg and Barry Diller. 2001-present.

Why did the fashion designer marry longtime friend and gay media mogul Barry Diller?

Why would any woman knowingly marry a rich gay man? Because they’ll both always have Paris, Prada and another man’s Penis?

 Dina Matos McGreevey and Governor Jim McGreevey.  2000- 2008, separated since 2005.

Then  the Democrat Governor of New Jersey, on August 12, 2004,

McGreevey coupled the announcement of his decision to resign with a public declaration of his homosexuality and an admission to having had an extramarital affair with a man, Golan Cipel, an Israeli citizen and veteran of the Israeli Defense Forces, whom McGreevey appointed New Jersey homeland security adviser.

In her memoirs, Matos wrote that she would never have married McGreevey if she had known he was gay, nor would she have chosen to have a gay man to father her child. On March 17, 2008, Theodore Pedersen, a former aide to McGreevey, claimed that from 1999 to 2001 he participated in numerous threesomes with McGreevey and Matos, a statement later affirmed by McGreevey. In a statement to ABC News, Matos denied that a threesome ever took place.

Suzanne Craig and Senator Larry Craig. 1983-present.

On August 27, 2007, the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call revealed that Craig had been arrested for lewd conduct in the men’s restroom at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on June 11, 2007, and entered a guilty plea to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct on August 8, 2007. Despite firmly stating that he was not gay and never has been gay, Craig announced his intention to resign from the Senate at a news conference on September 1, 2007, but later decided to finish the remainder of his term.



Phyllis Gates and Rock Hudson. 1955-1958.

Soon after his near-outing in 1955, Hudson married Willson’s secretary Phyllis Gates. In Gates’ 1987 autobiography, My Husband, Rock Hudson, the book she wrote with veteran Hollywood chronicler Bob Thomas, Gates states that she dated Hudson for several months and lived with him for two months before his surprise marriage proposal. She claims to have married Hudson out of love and not, as it was later purported, to stave off a major exposé of Hudson’s sexual orientation.

The news of the wedding was made known by all the major gossip magazines. One story, headlined “When Day Is Done, Heaven Is Waiting”, quoted Hudson as saying, “When I count my blessings, my marriage tops the list.” The union lasted three years; Gates filed for divorce in April 1958, charging mental cruelty. Hudson did not contest the divorce, and Gates received an alimony of US$250 a week for 10 years.[9] After her death from lung cancer in January 2006, some informants reportedly stated that she was actually a lesbian who married Hudson for his money, knowing from the beginning of their relationship that he was gay.[10] She never remarried.

Jayne Centre and Kelly Klein and Calvin Klein. 1964-1974, 1986-2006.

After ten years of separation, leading fashion designer Calvin Klein is divorcing his wife, the social-queen and photographer Kelly Klein.

Although the couple has been staying separate since quite some time, they both went great lengths to keep the news secret after Kelly first filed for divorce on 17 March.

The divorce was sealed in secret by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Harold Beeler two weeks ago.

The pair convinced the judge to allow the case to be filed as Anonymous vs Anonymous.

Kelly Preston and  John Travolta. 1991- present.

Carrie Fisher Outs John Travolta in ‘Advocate’ Interview:

“Wow! I mean, my feeling about John has always been that we know and we don’t care. Look, I’m sorry that he’s uncomfortable with it, and that’s all I can say. It only draws more attention to it when you make that kind of legal fuss. Just leave it be.”

Travolta has been haunted by gay rumors since the 1980’s when gay porn star Paul Barresi claimed he had a relationship with the Grease star. There have been many other accounts of him approaching men for sex throughout the years. He’s also known to kiss his gay male staff on the lips. Gawker even alleges that his male lover/nanny was the one that found Travolta’s son Jett dead in the bathroom last year.


So you mean Oprah Winfrey knows her good friend John Travolta is GAY, but never thought to mention it to America? Really? I wonder why? Ever wonder why Oprah never met a  closeted gay Scientologist she didn’t love to death? Oprah would never intentionally lie, would she?

At this point, it’s hard to believe that Oprah is black and fat.

5 women(!) and Cary Grant. He had a daughter with Dyan Cannon.

Grant allegedly was involved with costume designer Orry-Kelly when he first moved to Manhattan, and lived with Randolph Scott off and on for twelve years. Richard Blackwell wrote that Grant and Scott were “deeply, madly in love”, and alleged eyewitness accounts of their physical affection have been published. Hedda Hopper and screenwriter Arthur Laurents also have alleged that Grant was bisexual, the latter writing that Grant “told me he threw pebbles at my window one night but was luckless”.

Alexander D’Arcy, who appeared with Grant in The Awful Truth, said he knew that he and Scott “lived together as a gay couple”, adding: “I think Cary knew that people were saying things about him. I don’t think he tried to hide it.” The two men frequently accompanied each other to parties and premieres and were unconcerned when photographs of them cozily preparing dinner together at home were published in fan magazines.

Renate Blauel and Elton John. 1984-1988.

He also almost married a girl named Linda Woodrow in 1967, which would have ruined his future and career, but canceled at last moment by advice from his close friend Long John Baldry after a suicide attempt, which resulted in the song “Someone Saved My Life Tonight”.

Jane Wenner and Jann Wenner.

Jann Wenner is the founder of Rolling Stone and Men’s Health and owner of US Weekly.

Wenner and his wife separated in 1995, though Jane Wenner still remains a vice president of Wenner Media. She and Wenner have three sons, Alexander Jann, Theodore Simon, and Edward Augustus.

Since 1995, Wenner’s partner has been Matt Nye, a fashion designer. Together, Wenner and Nye have three children, Noah and twins Jude & India Rose.

Cher and David Geffen.

OK, They never married but were together for 2 years. Later, Cher dated Tom Cruise.

    You left out Diane von Furstenburg’s previous husband, the one who gave her nobility and alast name. We rented his house in Fire Island a few times – there were still pictures on the wall.
