Are SJP and other celeb women covering for their “gay” husbands?
By: Nicole Christie
As the hubbub around the May 30 release of Sex and the City: The Movie gallops toward a crescendo, Sarah Jessica Parker recently told Conan that she’s – somewhat surprisingly – very uncomfortable talking about sex at all, noting that even the word “sex” makes her squeamish.
When I mentioned this to a friend, she replied – without hesitation – “Well of course. She has no sex life to talk about because her husband is gay!”
What?!!! WHAT?! I don’t want to believe this but my friend is a hairstylist in NYC who worked on Broadway and claims “proof” of Sir Ferris’s sexual preferences. But how can that be?! Living in Manhattan, I hear nothing but good stories about people who run into the Parker-Brodericks around town and say they are kind, genuine folks who seem happy together. I’m a pretty decent read of people and sense that about both of them as well – they just have a “good air” going on. So why would a woman – especially one as amazing as SJP – sign on to a life with a gay man? Is it because she so gets the willies even talking about sex that she’s simply not into it? Perhaps they have such a deep friendship that the relationship works and, as a result, he doesn’t have to be “out?”
This makes my head spin! It just CAN’T BE!
But then there are photos like this of Mr. Saturday Night Fever. Does that look innocent and hetero to you? What did Kelly Preston get into? Is he truly gay? If so, did she know this upfront? Once again, a friend who works in “the industry” tells me that he’s totally gay and that Kelly also dates other people.
OMG – what?! Who does this stuff? It can’t be real!
Or can it?
I know a woman who has a best male friend she calls her “gay husband.” When we discussed the SJP/Matthew/John/Kelly debacle (not to mention the constant weirdness that surrounds Tom Cruise and his wives), she said this:
“Look, if I was approaching 40 and wanted a baby but couldn’t find a decent straight guy to marry, I would consider marrying Gavin and being artificially inseminated. Honestly – he has more integrity than any guy I’ve dated. We’d have a happy, harmonious home and could see other people without any drama.”
