Gentlemen, start your engines!

…but only if you swing that way. . . – Lance Bass of *NSYNC Reveals He’s Gay

Lance Bass, band member of *NSYNC, says he’s gay and in a “very stable” relationship with a reality show star. Bass, who formed *NSYNC with Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick, tells People magazine that he didn’t earlier disclose his sexuality because he didn’t want to affect the group’s popularity. [...] The singer says he’s in a “very stable” relationship with 32-year-old actor Reichen Lehmkuhl, winner of season four of CBS’ “Amazing Race.” Bass and Fatone, 29, are developing a sitcom pilot inspired by the screwball comedy “The Odd Couple,” in which his character will be gay.

    Isn’t this the same guy who was trying to buy a ticket to the moon a couple of years back?

    The other guy is so embarrassed to be with Lance (excellent name for a gay guy, btw), he won’t even give his real name. Still working on unscrambling Reichen Lehmkuhl, but haven’t come up with anything yet.

    Hey Augie, you’re not going to do anything on what Ken Jennings said about Alex Trebek? Or did I miss something here?

    Ah yes, good old Reichen from Amazing Race, season 4. You know, I have to say that this was one of the least surprising announcements to me. I always thought he swung that way.

    Juan – I probably should. I saw that post on his blog before I left for vacation last week and didn’t think much of it. Today, it’s on the front page of Drudge. It’s starting to get big, I suppose. Maybe I will do so tomorrow. Thanks!
