RuPaul Gets Married
Hot off his engagement to Beverly Hills florist Jeff Leatham, Colton Haynes has changed his online bio: “Uncle. Soon to be father. Traveler. Actor. Goof.” Soon to be father? How soon? In an Instagram photo of him swimming, he wrote, “Covering that layer of pregnancy while I can.”
Soccer star Robbie Rogers says he’ll soon marry television producer Greg Berlanti. The two had a child via surrogate a year ago, and got engaged last New Year’s Eve. Specifics are sketchy. “Sometime in December. We’re not quite sure yet. We don’t have a venue yet.” But do they have a florist?
RuPaul recently announced that he married his longtime companion Georges LeBar in January. It was the 23rd anniversary of when they met – on the dance floor at Limelight in New York in 1994 (ah, Limelight). Why did they finally tie the knot? “We were looking into it really for tax breaks and financial reasons.” How romantic! If you didn’t know Ru had a partner, you’re not alone. “He doesn’t care about show business – he couldn’t care less. Most of the time, he’s on the ranch in Wyoming. But he doesn’t want me to come there. God bless you, Wyoming, but it’s very boring, and it’s the most isolated place on Earth.” With the RuPaul renaissance, there’s another project in the works. J.J. Abrams is producing a half-hour dramedy based on Ru’s early years in NYC. The show will focus on the tyke’s rise from club kid to global icon. Many of you still believe that I wanted Proof, starring Katherine Heigl and Laverne Cox, to fail. Not true – I simply knew it WOULD fail. Happily, Cox has bounced back with a new TV series. Interesting enough, her role in The Trustee was not written for a transgender person. The show is a female police buddy drama and someone thought, “Hmm, why couldn’t one of those cops be transgender?” Why not indeed. The show is being produced by Elizabeth Banks and hopes to get on ABC‘s schedule next season.
