After Elton’s Michael Jensen tried to interview Brian Boitano about his new Food Network show, “What Would Brian Boitano Make?” It’s described as this:
With a lifelong passion for food and cooking, Brian hosts unpredictable get-togethers at his San Francisco home and creates amazing menus focusing on innovative but accessible dishes. He feeds an all-girl roller derby squad, plays matchmaker for a friend, wins over his handyman’s supper club, and plans a surprise party celebrating new motherhood.
Sounds sweet, doesn’t it? Thing is that when Jensen explained that he was from the gay site After Elton and, since Boitano’s show was so personal, wanted to ask Boitano a few personal questions, Jensen was physically guided away from Boitano and toward another journalist. The publicist explained that the show was strictly about cooking and would not focus on Boitano’s personal life.
Except when it’s in his home. Or about his friend. Or about his handyman. Sounds to me like Brian Boitano suffers from Michael Urie Disease . . . .
The other thing is this — Brian Boitano is gay. I know. He hit on me at the JFK airport. And that’s the entire reason I’m writing about this — I am so tiiiiiired of gay celebrities telling the world every little detail about themselves except their homosexuality, as though their sexuality is somehow more personal than, say, who their best friends are.
