Mr. Minelli must have had tons of shit he was hiding, enuff for Liza to get her hands on his FBI files too huh Mr. X?

MISCH FTW!

Kno Won Uno said...

I love it because everyone on the planet knew (assumed) Vincente Minelli was gay or bi. Nowhere was it a secret. Nowhere. It's like insisting no one mention that the sky is *up*.

Merlin D. Bear said...

Someone needs to let Liza know that ship sailed a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG time ago.

Judy catching Vincente in bed with a man was what prompted her 1st suicide I believe?

EastCoaster said...

Liza and her mother both married several men who were gay or bi.

Kno Won Uno said...

@Sandybrook - I was thinking the same thing about that FBI blind. J Edgar would have loved Minelli. Personally and professionally.

and it was a secret?

perhaps she just didn't want to discuss it-her right

Kno Won Uno said...

Valid point, Rajah.

califblondy said...

Who didn't know that?

Shelly Shell said...

It's in most bios of Judy that he was gay.

MISCH said...

But everyone knew it wasn't a secret..

Seven of Eleven said...

Yeah, this makes about as much sense as paying off the FBI to keep mom's drug habit a secret.

When the clue says EGOT winner the field narrows significantly.

Cheryl said...

I'm guessing she just doesn't like discussing it. As others have said, it was never a secret. She was also married to the second gayest man of all time, Peter Allen! And I am a Peter Allen fan. I saw him in Legs Diamond on Broadway. She should be more upset about her portrayal in Boy from Oz because her part was very poorly written.

Liza, get a clue. My grandmother knew your father was "a gay," as she said. (I don't think grandma quite understood the nuances of gay vs bisexual, ha)

Alexa Rose said...

Everyone already knows, but it must be a painful subject for her. I can't really blame her.

Dexamyl said...

Why ever would she care? It's no blemish on his memory if he was bi, which has discussed since before I was born. Given her many gay friends (not to mention husbands), and her own rumored bisexuality, this shocks me.

She just doesn't want to talk about it..Her right to privacy. Big difference between us knowing and her not wanting to reopen old wounds.
