William “Willie” Garson kept his sexuality secret to avoid the controversy of a heterosexual playing a ghey man on TV.

Garson died Tuesday after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 57.

Willie Garson played openly ghey Stanford Blatch, a beloved talent agent who was referred to as the “Fifth Lady” in HBO’s Sex and the City.

Garson played his role so well that fans of the show assumed he was homosexual in real life.

Blatch was besties with Sarah Jessica Parker‘s character Carrie Bradshow on the HBO series.

In the last two seasons of the show, his character, Blatch, was romantically linked with Broadway dancer Marcus Adente (Sean Palmer).

In real life, Garson was involved in a longterm relationship with a woman who didn’t want children. So he adopted a boy, Nathen, as a single father.

“He’s an adult and soon to be taking care of me which is really why I got him to be honest,” Garson said about Nathen, now 20. “He’s lovely and a really special guy. He’s wonderful and he’s in college in Ohio.”

In an interview with Page Six last year Willie explained how he kept his sexuality a secret “for years” over fears his heterosexuality would be “offensive to gay people”.

“For years I didn’t talk about it because I found it to be offensive to gay people. People playing gay characters jumping up and down screaming that they’re not gay, like that would somehow be a bad thing if they were.”

He added:

“When the question would come up during the show I would say, ‘When I was on White Collar no one ever asked me if I was a conman, and when I was on NYPD Blue, nobody ever asked me if I was a murderer.

“This is what we do for a living, portray people.”

Paris Hilton Rocks A Dress Made Out Of Toilet Paper For Backyard Bridal Brunch — Photo

The pre-wedding celebrations continued for Paris Hilton on Oct. 23. The socialite had a bridal brunch at her home where her friends dressed her up in an outfit that was designed strictly from toilet paper!

Paris Hilton can make just about anything fashionable — even toilet paper. The bride-to-be was honored with a bridal brunch, hosted by Revolve, which was held in her backyard on Oct. 23. The event consisted of a game where guests had to split into two teams and dress Paris and her sister-in-law, Tessa Hilton, up using only toilet paper. The results were pretty epic!

Paris’s team went all-out to put together her look. They wrapped her entire body up in toilet paper and were able to make thick shoulder pads to add to the look. The ensemble was complete with a crown, which was also made out of the toilet tissue. Paris was all smiles as she posed in the bizarre outfit. Meanwhile, Tessa’s look was a longer, straight gown, which had gloves and a more Bohemian-style headpiece.

The tissue paper outfits didn’t last long, as Paris’s dogs eventually rushed in and began destroying the outfits. Underneath, Paris rocked a white mini dress with a cutout at the center of her chest. The long-sleeved mini had a ruffled pattern in the front, and Paris rocked white heels with the outfit. She pulled her hair up into a high ponytail with bangs flipped to one side, as well, and wore bejeweled gloves.

The last few weeks have been filled with pre-wedding fun for Paris. She and her fiance, Carter Reum, had a joint bachelor and bachelorette party in Las Vegas at the beginning of October. Then, she was celebrated with an Alice in Wonderland-themed bridal shower just one week later. The star-studded event was quite an affair, and Paris was the woman of the hour.

Paris and Carter got engaged in Feb. 2021, after just over a year of dating. Their wedding date has not been confirmed, but based on all of the wedding-themed activities and events that Paris has attended in recent weeks, all signs point to the big day quickly approaching!

RHOSLC Recap: Mary Calls Out Lisa for “Belittling” Her, Jennie Yells at Mary, Plus Angie and Lisa Make Amends

RHOSLC Recap: Mary Calls Out Lisa for Belittling Her as Jennie Yells at Mary, Plus Angie and Lisa Make Amends After Caterer Drama

On this episode of The Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City, Whitney is organizing a snow tubing trip, which simply translates to everyone fighting, and Jennie continues to deal with pressure regarding a growing family.

Henry and I share a love of fast food.” Lisa explains that since she is an adult now, she believes she can demonstrate her leadership by carting her child around to drive-thrus and stuffing him with cake pops right after school pickup. She listens intently to Henry talk about his fractured friendships and offers up advice/a meetup for them to heal their friendship. Well, watching Lisa shell out help about a situation so close to home for her is incredibly ironic.

Jennie and her husband, Duy, are out on a date, but they haven’t really talked much since the sister-wife conversation. Luckily, it was oyster night, so despite being mad at Duy, Jennie accepted the chance to talk to him about his desire to have more children… and possibly a sister wife. Duy explains that HE felt hurt when Jennie walked away from him. He further goes on about how common polygamy is in their culture, but Jennie thinks it is so weird that he is even entertaining this. Duy states an example of a patient of his that has five wives and 40 (yes, 40) kids. Jennie stands firm and reminds Duy of their religion, but she tears up thinking about sharing her gem of a husband with someone else (even though she really wasn’t sure about him from the neck up…).

Duy, stone-faced, tells Jennie she is his best friend and decides he doesn’t wanna lose her. TOOK YOU THIS LONG to figure that out?! Imagine being the waiter in this scenario? Watching these two having their waterworks, discussing these heavy-duty topics… Jennie suggests that for Duy to heal over the loss of their daughter, he should seek some professional help. Jennie tells Duy it’s not fair that he may not get help, but she understands that he may not want to admit he is weak or vulnerable and then look like a failure.

One question: Is Seth high? What kind of greeting is that when he meets up with Meredith for a date, and what is with the horny schtick? He’s all fun and games, talking about loosening Meredith up, if ya know what I mean… but Meredith steers the convo back to business. They discuss the new place they are looking to build, and all Seth wants is to “motorboat mother nature…” He just cares about the cleavage, er, the view.

Seth asks Meredith what her expectations are, and she explains that since going to therapy, things have been good, but she has hopes of Seth taking on some of the responsibility of the children as well. She claims that she is exhausted and stressed, and he offers to “jump on stress grenades all day” for Meredith… “naked.” Cringe.

It’s the first anniversary of the new location of Heather’s Beauty Lab… and it’s the first birthday for ALL of the Beauty Lab babies. All of Heather’s employees had kids at the exact same time, so why not hold a party? Whitney and Angie arrive to celebrate for a “mom’s night out” (WHY would they *choose* to spend their free time with other peoples’ children?!), and when Jen gets there, Whitney begins to spill the tea.

She tells the women about her odd interaction at the restaurant with Lisa. Whitney believes that Lisa set up a trap at the dinner, hoping to exonerate Lisa of any wrongdoing regarding the catering scandal. As Jen listens, she feels like that’s not even Lisa’s style to do something like that. You know it’s bad when JEN is the voice of reason. Whitney explains that Lisa is still blaming the whole thing on Angie, and Angie is having a hard time believing her long-time friend Lisa would let something like this get in the way. And then Angie falls over drunk and pukes, so there’s that.

It’s the snow tubing day, and Mary rolls up to the lot in a party bus. She needed to be comfortable, so she provided the transportation for the group. Lisa feels as though it’s kind of annoying that Whitney invited Angie, but Lisa has decided to be SUPER mature about it and just pretend like Angie is invisible.

Somehow, a scuffle breaks out between Mary and Lisa on the ride to tubing. Mary is annoyed that Lisa questioned her knowledge of information and blurts out, “Everything you say I have to Google it? If I say something, it’s fact.” Oh, and now the Lisa and Mary beef begins. Kind of out of left field that Mary becomes so hot and bothered.

After they arrive at the destination, Lisa attempts to smooth things over, but Mary is not having it. She is offended that Lisa questioned her intelligence and even goes as far as yelling, “Why, cuz I’m Black?” Lisa apologizes profusely, and Jennie jumps in, fired up, screaming about moving on and dropping it with some curse words sprinkled in there too. Mary tells Jennie to get her language right, but Jennie chooses to bite back at Mary. “Don’t tell me what to say or do. You ain’t my mom.” Jennie is misdirecting her anger — she is frustrated with her dumba*s husband and is just taking it out on Mary.

While everyone (sans Mary) appears to be having a good time, Whitney and Angie attempt to scare the women in Sasquatch costumes, but it’s really just a lame effort of spicing up the boring outing. A competition is called to tube down the hill in teams and the losers have to wear wigs at lunch. I feel like Jen should maybe go orange… Her wig doesn’t look half bad.

During lunch, Mary stews and Jen asks if things are now good between Lisa and Mary. Mary calls it a misunderstanding, and Lisa is tired of everyone thinking the worst of her and her intentions. When the Mary/Lisa issue gets squashed, Angie feels like it’s her turn to jump in the ring.

Lisa states that unless Angie says she is sorry, there is nothing more to be said. Despite their history, Lisa is annoyed by the accusation her friend of 20 years made. Lisa calls it painful and explains that her feelings were hurt, but it may be time for Lisa to own her sh*t. When Whitney gets involved, Lisa loses it. She wants to be herself and asks everyone to get off her “f*cking back.”

Lisa is borderline out of breath after her rant, but she notices that her two “friends” (Jen and Meredith) are silent as she fights this battle alone. Lisa explains that her grandfather was gay and states that she fully supports the LGBTQ community, so the event was near and dear to her heart and she would have never done anything to sabotage it. She cries and Angie comes over for a hug. Things are settled.

But now… it’s Jennie’s turn. She asks Mary if THEY are good, and it’s almost like everyone is just taking turns “fighting” for screen time. Jennie explains that she is Asian and she got triggered by Mary telling her what to do since she grew up that way. Mary is told not to attack her if she doesn’t know her and Jennie gets emotional.  She tells the women that today is her daughter’s death anniversary, and she decides to share because she doesn’t want to go through crap with the ladies. In her confessional, Lisa states that she doesn’t know why Jennie shared that with the group since they are all “selfish b*tches” (where’s the lie thooo), but having Jennie open up like that certainly explains her behavior. Shots are called for, and it seems like all is well in SLC for now.

Yiiikes! ‘Black Ink’ Star Sky Reportedly Got Into Mortifying Scuffle Outside Of Drake’s Birthday Party

What is happening here???

Drake celebrated his 35th birthday over the weekend with a “Cocaine Cowboys” themed soiree that reportedly had its share of scuffles. According to an alleged witness from outside of the party, “Black Ink” star Sky Days seemingly got into a physical altercation with a woman on the street outside the venue.

The clip uploaded to Twitter is captioned ‘not them beating up Sky outside Drake’s party.’ The video shows Sky being scooped off the concrete by an unknown man as a woman turns towards Sky and says, “I literally went behind her and she pushed me.” Sky, surprisingly was pretty quiet in response, dusting herself off and walking away. The majority of the video is inaudible thereafter, but its pretty CLEAR some kind of intense altercation went on right before Sky was helped up from the pavement.

 

Maybe Drake had the ladies really excited to get inside his party??? Supposedly, the men were too according to witnesses. The viral clip of Sky being scooped off the floor was later uploaded to The Neighborhood Talk blog where reality star Meghan James also shared her experience in the comments, saying,

“I almost got in to 3 fights, and one was with a n*gga who pushed me. Don’t f*ckin push me bc I push back. Period.”

Welp! In related news, Sky seems to still be sharing her big personality on TikTok despite being off of reality TV, for now.
