Blind Item #9

For the first time that I can remember, this A list daytime star showed off her girlfriend in public. At the Daytime Emmy's no less. Our actress has been so deep in the closet for decades.

Kelly Monaco

WareCat said...

Queen?
I dn't think she came out yet.

sandybrook said...

Not Dr. Marlena

WareCat said...

Or is daytime just soaps?

MontanaMarriott said...

I always forget Latifah has a show but she is like the worst kept secret in Hollywood.

sandybrook said...

This shouldn't be hard there are only 3 left and very few ppm on for decades :(

rosie riveter said...

Yay!! Its tough to come out of hiding- Good for her

Dexamyl said...

Dee Hall. It's the soap world's worst kept secret.

sandybrook said...

I dont think Queen would be considered in the closet she just doesn't say anything.

Freya said...

Queen Latifah is a lesbian?!
What?! I'm just kidding. Is she back with the fitness instructor or someone else?

And if she was so deep in the closet, it must be a glass closet because we can see right through it.

Good for them !!!
Not sure who it is.

sandybrook said...

Judith Light came out years ago Tricia

Tricia Shaw said...

Judith was a presenter.
This is her

Tricia Shaw said...

I never heard of that..and never been papped with a female companion...or discussed it, and she's on talk shows still quite a lot..

sandybrook said...

Shes not in the closet its not her

Tricia Shaw said...

If she came out..she whispered it

Tricia Shaw said...

K
Robin strasser FTW

Zach said...

Judith Light is married to a man. Not that it means she isn't gay. But she's an LGBT rights supporter, so I doubt she's a closeted lesbian as well.

sandybrook said...

Google it she came out in 2008 or 9 and helped the little kid from Who's The Boss when he came out after she did. Her son on the show.

Sugar said...

I wonder if she found that slipper I lost in my closet so long ago.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Aren't Deidra Hall and Jane Elliot (Tracy Quartermaine from GH) a couple in real life?

Dexamyl said...

Deidre's gf is Jane Elliot (Tracy Quartermaine). Read that Hall is throwing a party soon for Elliot and former co - star Chandler Massey.

Dexamyl said...

Little Miss, you owe me some coke....er, I mean a Coke.

auntliddy said...

I never thought about her sexuality. Huh.

jimmyPx said...

Judith Light has been married to a guy for a long time. That doesn't mean that he isn't bearding for her, but she is a very active LGBT activist, so probably would have come out by now if she was gay. Deidre Hall has been married 4 times to men and the marriages lasted for multiple yearsm so unless she is like Meridith Baxter and says he's gay now, I doubt it's her.

Tricia Shaw said...

So if Deirdre hall is out throwing a party for Jane elliot(nice looking couple.), there not closeted either....

WareCat said...

Whoopi!
final answer.

Anna Katherine Nonymous said...

La Lucci ftw

rajahcat said...

Susan Flannery

Deirdre Hall

Michelle Stafford

Jane Elliott

Basil said...

I have never heard a whisper of Judith Light coming out. But anyway, she doesn't fit, unless she back doing daytime. Whose the Boss and Ugly Betty were her most recent thing, non?

Tricia Shaw said...

@warecat...funny..always thought whooping was a lesbian, but she's sooo open and candid, can't see her concealing it

Plus..she talks about dudes a lot, in a gg good way..like she a supafreak

Renoblondee said...

Did not know Deidra is gay. Huh

The Chick said...

Deidra Hall has been married four times. I doubt she's gay.

Jane Elliot has been married once and has a son.

I'm guessing these two might actually really be "just friends".

Seven of Eleven said...

Judith Light has been married almost 30 years and is a huge gay rights supporter. I doubt she'd be worried about being closeted.

Tricia Shaw said...

Alrighty so my original guess of hours ago
Strasser

Tricia Shaw said...

I deleted it but had said ms. Strasser is a former instructor of mine, and while lovely and super cool, was a it...dunno.
Pinged my radar and that was...20 years ago
So..if her, which I think...good news and happy for her
Also she exiting show or hphas fro health reasons, so maybe it was just time to come out

Gayeld said...

I suspect that people are getting Meredith Baxter (God, I still want to add Birney at the end) mixed up with Judith Light. I even found a "humorous" article with Judith supposedly snapping at the reporter for mixing her up with Meredith. It went on to add that the mother from "Who's The Boss?", Joanna Kearns, had come out as well.

rajahcat said...

being married does not rule you out.......or having children

ala Meredith Baxter formerly Birney

Iknowpeople said...

Years ago Judith Light and I were the only women in first class. When I was struggling to get my briefcase in an overhead bin (I'm short), she jumped up to help me. The men watched...

Lila said...

Michelle Stafford

PJ said...

I wish. I'm straight but there are a few exceptions I'd TOTALLY make with a few select unbelievably hot/sexy female celebrities. (The all around incredible Connie Britton tops my small list but Kelly is absolutely on there too!)

Rose Lizenberg said...

Really? My aunt has been in the soap industry for decades and she says she's never heard this. Source? (Not insisting you're wrong, I'm just curious)

Rose Lizenberg said...

No.

Rose Lizenberg said...

I gotta say...I'm kinda dumbfounded right now. Where did you hear this?

Rose Lizenberg said...

I can totes see Susan Flannery. She pinged my gaydar when B&B first started back in the 80s

Kat said...

Michelle Stafford, never married, she was on Y&R for forever until last year when she took a year off before joining GH, and she presented at the show with Jason Thompson and a most likely drunk Kelly Monaco.

Honestly anyone else I can think of this being weren't at the ceremony or have left daytime behind. The smart ones though skipped the Red Carpet.

Dexamyl said...

@Rose No one is trying to slander Dee. The stories about her and Elliot have been out there for a long time. I think Hall is gay and, given how conservative some soap viewers are, I can't slam her for being closeted. Eliot's bff Tony Geary isn't out either, but everyone knows.

As far as marriage and children, I don't think it proves much. Travolta, Cruise, Marcia Cross et cetera ad infinitum.

Tricia Shaw said...

Never heard if michelle stafford but checked her out..it's a remote possibility....but she's still quite young compared to other vets if daytime and decades to me is..20-30 years....
This is why why Robyn strasser compels.
And I'd dee hall and Elliot have been so sloppy to be sorta an open secret..I think this not them either

Tricia Shaw said...

OT because truly has nothing to do with this answer
Kelly Monaco is a ---- vacuum

sugarbread maker said...

Diedre hall??? Or was it Tracey Bergman? ?
Better check the photos for accuracy before outing someone enty..You don't have a good track record. .
Michelle Stafford is gay??? Who was it that said she was way deep in co $$
Isn't scio $$ soooo anti gaygay??
Can whoever told me about her and Tony Ortega clarify all the deets on ms please? ?

M. Brown said...

Michelle Stafford is COS as is Sharon on Y&R. Interesting story. The older actor that played Katherine Chandler's husband Murphy was long time COS. Then he called bullshit and left. Supposedly Michelle and Sharon harassed and threatened him on the set and refused to be in scenes with him.

Tricia Shaw said...

Tricia Shaw said...

Evidently ms strasser has been veeeery vocal in the LGBT community for many years, and partook in the ABC event when a bunch of same sex couples were married...as an "officiating member"

Diedre Hall is gay and everyone's known since before the flood.

sugarbread maker said...

m brown..ooohhhh i didnt know sharon was scio too!!
give me all the deets you have on her too.. i love good y/r gossip..
thanks

M. Brown said...

@sugarbread I don't know anything else. She's often listed as a scientologist and shows up at their events. I read the Murphy stuff on Ortega's site. But everytime the character is dealing with her bipolar story line I wonder what she's thinking and if she's getting any pressure from anyone.

Unknown said...

Liz your aunt is a soap insider and she has NEVER heard rumors Dee Hall is a lesbian?? Really? I worked in Soaps in the 90's and think I heard that my first month..and I didn't work on NBC soaps!. I remember when Eileen Davidson was cast on Days everyone was joking Dee has sent her flowers the day she got cast..

Rose Lizenberg said...

Thanks for the reply! I didn't think you were slandering her at all :) I was just kinda floored at the idea of her being a closeted lesbian. But...stranger things have happened!

Rose Lizenberg said...

Yeah when I texted her yesterday she said that was the first time she'd heard that rumor. Apparently my aunt needs to either pay closer attention or find better gossipers! LOL
