Ellen DeGeneres Cancel’s Talk Show and Rosemarie Terenzio’s Fairy Tale Interrupted about JFK Jr.
I read the memoir, Fairy Tale Interrupted by Rosemarie Terenzio, when it was first released. I still have the digital book on my Kindle app. Terenzio was the personal assistant to John Kennedy Jr. and many years after he passed away she wrote a book about her time spent with him. It was a wonderful book, it was respectful and loyal to Kennedy, and I even left a good review for it. One of the things I remember reading in the book was when Kennedy was scheduled to go on the Oprah Winfrey show to promote something he was working hard on. I won’t go into detail about it, but it didn’t sound as if Oprah was a sweet and pleasant woman. She sounded like a vicious control freak, eager to have her own way with everything and everyone. And that’s not the only time I’ve read these things about Winfrey…and her best friend, Gayle.
So with that said, I can’t help wondering why people keep harping about Ellen DeGeneres and the claims made against her. Ellen made an announcement this week that she’s ending her 19-year talk show and people are still going after her for incidents that may or may not have even happened. Ellen is also talking about all these allegations now.
“I really didn’t understand it. I still don’t understand it. It was too orchestrated. It was too coordinated,” she told Today host Savannah Guthrie in a pretaped interview that aired Thursday.
Here’s more. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. What Ellen DeGeneres represents to me is simple. And I think a lot of you either don’t know about this or you don’t remember. In the 90s NO ONE was giving gay people TV shows. They weren’t even hiring openly gay actors. The few TV shows with gay content like Will and his Grace had a star who played a gay character and he wasn’t even gay. He was straight playing gayface. So when Ellen DeGeneres came along and she came out on national TV I will never forget the magnitude of that. That was big. Tony and I were still a young couple and we watched it together. Tony was still almost completely in the closet and I was only halfway out. Ellen gave us hope that night, and I will never forget that. And neither should you.
Colton Underwood Came Out Because He was Blackmailed
The coming-out story of Colton Underwood continues to evolve and here’s the latest news. But what I want to get out there is that I am sick and tired of reading straight people comment about gay people coming out. You don’t get to do that. You are straight and you have that never-ending straight privilege. You are supposed to listen and not speak…or splain. Coming out for gay people is always different, too. And it’s always a difficult move to make no matter who the person is. So if Colton Underwood didn’t come out as gay fast enough for you, straight person, that’s just too damn bad.
Apparently, before Underwood came out in public as gay he visited some sort of gay spa and he was blackmailed afterward. According to him, this was part of the reason for coming out.
“By the time I realized that I was gay, I didn’t want to be gay,” he said.
He also revealed that he had hooked up with men, but not had sex with a man, prior to first appearing on The Bachelorette in 2018.
Here’s more. I believe him totally. I’ve seen it too many times before.
