The ‘Net is ablaze with a Digital Spy infused Robert Buckley gay rumor that suggests the Lipstick Jungle star may be liking the boys more than the girls. Of course, a quick visit to the site reveals that it is nothing more than a few chest photos of Robert Buckley sans shirt. Yeah, its desperation and the birth of another gay rumor.
Of course, there is nary an actor who – at one point or another – has not fallen victim to the Hollywood gay rumor mill. It makes little difference if they are blessed with a gaggle of kids or feature a different bit of nubile eye candy on their arms every night. Then again, sometimes the gay rumors are right.
Thus, in short progression, there were the rumors including Dolly Parton, John Travolta, Leonardo DiCaprio, Oprah Winfrey, Richard Gere, and Tom Cruise – all courtesies of links listed on the RS Levinson website. I told you the list was laughable.
On the other side of the equation is Sylvia Browne. The 72-year-young self proclaimed psychic, medium, television darling, and church founder (and indicted securities fraudster and grand larcenist) appears to be losing her touch. A YouTube video shows her predicting a rebound of the auto industry, a strengthening housing market, an upswing in the job market, and a high season for medical stocks.
With all due respect to all things psychic, either Sylvia Browne is losing her touch or she was never really in touch. The recounting of the missed predictions involving the Montel Williams Show and families of missing children – as outlined in the Guardian – is more than one can stomach. Montel’s comment when confronted with the oft cruelly wrong Sylvia Browne? “She’s great! She’s a funny character! She’s hysterical!”
Maybe the Robert Buckley gay rumor is not the bottom of the barrel.
