Blind Item #10

This former NBC A lister from a hit show that is no longer in the air was considered a ladies man on the show. This month he is finally planning on coming out. Good for him.

The main guy from Friday Night Lights...

LeBlanc. Stupid phone

Matt LeBlanc

Time will tell, I guess.

sandybrook said...

I agree with Charlie Matt LeBlanc.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Helms

Karen said...

Lady H, I like your guess. Matt LeBlanc doesn't ping my gaydar. Not that my gaydar has ever worked properly.

MontanaMarriott said...

I have "friends" from all walks of life and a trannie escort friend of mine told me MLB was her best customer.

TalksTooMuch said...

Ohhhhhjj!!! I read this as NBA A lister and I got all excited! Charlie prolly got it, woot Charlie!

Freya said...

Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
I know. I know.

Renoblondee said...

Wow. Agree LeBlanc.

NomNom83 said...

Hmm, Lady H... now I'm rethinking my guess. I'm torn. Rumors for both... Although it does beg the question why LeBlanc would make an announcement since he's been in the game for so long and I think he just prefers a low-key lifestyle.

One could argue that with The Office and The Hangover behind him, there's less pressure for Helms to keep it quiet?

I guess we just need to wait and see.

Simon said...

Oh, wow! Never would have guessed Leblanc!

Dena said...

Ooooh...the Nard Dog is an excellent guess!

derek harvey said...

Am I the only one that is gonna mock enty for saying the show is no longer "in the air"?

Shelly Shell said...

I thought LeBlanc was still with the woman from Joey that he left his wife for.

Virginia Squatch said...

Could have been Ted Danson if him and his wife weren't so perfect. Maybe we aren't thinking back far enough.... Frasier? Seinfeld?

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

I'm on the NOTLABLANC train and it's pretty lonely on board.

How bouts Kelsey Grammer? (But he's married so it would not make sense to come out, if he needed to)

O o Ohhhh! How bouts woody harrelson?

Oh never mind.

Just not la blanc. No offense to his TS friend.

FlirtyChick74 said...

Me too Simon.

WritergirlinLa said...

I could be wrong but I don't think it's LeBlanc. He's so low key and practically under the radar that this would draw a lot of unneeded attention upon himself. This sounds more like Helms maybe.

Gossip-Monster said...

I guess you could make the argument that Kelsey came off as a womanizer on Frasier even though the same character was a joke on Cheers. He does ping the gaydar quite strongly.

Simon said...

I just googled helms and he weighed in on the whole chick fillet thing saying they lost a customer. Bet it's him, just can't believe Leblanc is gay.

Dena said...

Not much of a ladies man, though.

Violet said...

I heard vague rumours about John Mahoney. But find it hard to imagine he'd come out now. He was a bit of a ladies man on Frasier.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Ed Helms = ladies man?

Simon said...

@dena, yea that's true.
@violet, I think it's already been widely discussed John Mahoney was gay. All he would say is he doesn't discuss his personal life.

Ed Helms' character on The Office was about as far from a ladies man as you can possibly get. LeBlanc makes a lot more sense given the clues.

Virginia Squatch said...

Doesn't have to be a sitcom though, right? What about someone from ER or one of those other shows that went on forever with a huge cast (LA Law?).

Count Jerkula said...

Stanley?

Dan Fielding?

Theo Huxtable?

Steve Keaton?

My final answer is Kramer.

TalksTooMuch said...

I'm going back to NBA reading and saying Jason Collins

teresa crane said...

Andy definitely was not a ladies man on The Office

I'm convinced it's Matt LaBlanc too

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Damn. I forgot to.

Sicilysclover said...

I think it would be weird for MLB to leave his first wife for his Joey co-star if he is actually gay. Too much opportunity for scandal for a guy so private. Trying to think of who else it could be though...

figgy said...

John Mahoney (the dad from Frasier) has been out forever. He's back in Chicago, doing regional theater. I don't think he's ever even been IN the closet, just quiet about it.

HRHKMiddz said...

Kirk Cameron. Wouldn't that be a dream?

Essie said...

Don't think it's Lablanc. He's too low key. Why would he open himself up like that?

tara17 said...

Agree, MLB's marriage ended over a woman and he's stated he has problems with staying faithful. I'd totally go with Kelsey if he wasn't married. Then again, either situation doesn't mean someone isn't gay. Eric McCormack?

Zach said...

Eriq la Salle. No freaking clue, but I don't like the Le Blanc guesses. John Mahoney is probably gay, but was he really a ladies' man on Frasier?

figgy said...

Then again, Enty keeps claiming this one or that one is going to come out, and they never do so, take it with a grain of salt.

@tara, eric McCormick a good guess...

lulu said...

Clooney was on ER too. Just sayin.

I'll go with Helms tho.

Sherry said...

Me three!

Sherry said...

Violet John Mahoney is out I believe.

Jerry Seinfeld said...

So obvious.
Dr. Kildare.

evie2345 said...

Andrea Anders, who was so great on the gone too soon Better Off Ted.
I don't think it's Matt.

G said...

The other friend Matthew Perry

Feed Watcher said...

Friends in "in the air" every nights, with several showings.

But whatever.

When Matt was married years ago one of the gossips (Ted C, maybe?) implied that he and his wife lived in separate wings of the house and that he was actually involved with her brother.

I don't know why we all care about news like this, but we do, I guess. In another 10 years or so what will the gossip columns talk about?

Drug use? Murder?

PotPourri said...

LeBlanc has a show on right now!!!!! It's not LeBlanc!!! EPISODES!

I don't think Ross (David Schwimmer was ever a Ladie's Man)

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

I have a soft spot for Matt LeBlanc. He had an interesting secret which stayed quiet through the entire run of "Friends."

The secret was: Premature gray hair!

Lady Heisenberg said...

HOW YOU DOIIIIIN
Niiiiiiiice Montana!!! Great story, yo!

Jessie said...

I read it that way too! So confused.

dav725 said...

We'll see....we read these blinds about someone coming out, or someone's sex tape coming out...and hardly any of them ever happen.

Mama Ray said...

Not sure I'm convinced it's LeBlanc, just wanted to say that Episodes is pretty great!

Agita said...

Kramer!

How about Zachary Levi?

smn1985 said...

Obviously Neil Patrick Harris. :-P

Shawn said...

"In the air" - perhaps a "Wings" reference?

Brenda L said...

Is there any kind of upcoming gay event this month that someone would come out at?

Malibu Borebee said...

John Mahoney has been out to family and friends for years, maybe he's going to go public. Kelsey Grammer is the only man on Frasier who isn't gay.

Matt LeBlanc's sexual orientation is well known. Whether or not he's ready to come out is another matter. It would be nice if he did.

FlirtyChick74 said...

@Brenda: this month (as far as I know, is Pride month. LGBTQ).

EvieShackles said...

Please be CLOONEY!!! That's one way to get out of a sham marriage with a 20 million pre-nup. Damn Lawyers.

Sprink said...

Kind of a segue/off-topic, but why is there often a furore when heterosexuals portray homosexuals (Tom Hanks in Philadelphia, Sean Penn as Harvey Milk, for example) but there's no correlating outcry when homosexuals portray heterosexuals (Neil Patrick Harris in HIMYM, Cynthia Nixon in SATC)?

Is it a question of Out v In? Is it a question of Star v Supporting?

It's just a question; no agenda.

Obviously it's about the money, but still...

Sprink said...

By the way, I don't think this is LeBlanc.

demandah said...

World Pride in Toronto?

cat said...

I rather wish people would stop making a production about coming out, in Hollywood. Why not just live their life, then it would just be obvious? I find it curious such a big production needs to be made.

Tricia Shaw said...

Eric mcormacksiconic character Will..was GAY..hardly a ladykiller...

LeBlanc is at best a middle aged bi/ex escort type who ain't coming out over that...trust.

MAhoney been out since the revolutionary war and Kelsey a PT drag queen in his private life...

So the mystery man is likely a person adjoined too often with gay rumors, or someone would quess correct...

Tricia Shaw said...

Ted danson

Tricia Shaw said...

Cheers

Tricia Shaw said...

Meant to say..not TOO often adjoined with rumors.
Plus that whole whooping Goldberg relationship was whack

ecua said...

John Stamos!
(Just kidding...but it WOULD be fucking awesome!)

Tricia Shaw said...

Whoopis has bearded a bit indeed..frank labella, perhaps mr danson

Stamos...never...darlin....he liiiikes the laaadues:))

Tricia Shaw said...

Frank langella lol aka/Dracula

Tricia Shaw said...

Used to see them out a lot in NYC functions "as a couple".. bFFs maybe at best...sweet but not hot...and not a couple....oh whooping come out as well already!!!

Ramone Love said...

Michael Richards

sparklynan said...

If we're going WAY back, I'm gonna say Tom Selleck-Magnum P.I.

Gabi said...

Matt LeBlanc on Graham Norton....strange behaviour thank goodness for Seth or that particular episode would have been a real flop!

Lula Surber said...

I'll hop in the Way Back Machine and guess Tim Daly from WINGS! That dude does not seem to age either.

califblondy said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one! I thought how dumb is it to try and figure out an NBA ladies' man??

SBMB said...

Tim Daley? (One can wish!)

April Walsh said...

Why has no one guessed Stephen Weber from Wings? Brian was more the Ladie's man than Daly's character, Joe (BTW, I was a huge Wings fan).

I doubt this is Danson. He's still married to Mary Steenburgen and I just don't think a man would make a decision like this while still married.

Pamela Christian said...

Steven Weber - Wings

tojo said...

Maybe Tim Meadows, the ultimate Ladies' Man?
