Carrie Fisher Didn’t “Out” Travolta

travolta220px-John_T_color_01Andy Cohen, the Bravo executive who foisted Real Housewives on the world, went on Joy Behar‘s chat show to chide Carrie Fisher for “outing” John Travolta. Fisher had given an interview to The Advocate in which she was asked about reports that Travolta’s had sex with men and she said, “My feeling about John has always been that we know and we don’t care. Look, I’m sorry that he’s uncomfortable with it, and that’s all I can say.” Fisher — and most of the rest of the civilized world — do not criticize Travolta for being married to a woman and being a father. We are thrilled for him however he finds his domestic bliss. But the fact remains that he most definitely has a history of sex with men, one that’s been reported on for years by tabloids like The National Enquirer. And people who think that the Enquirer never gets it right should Bart Simpsonically write the following two words on the blackboard a hundred times: “John Edwards.” Behar and Cohen should take a chill pill and examine why they thing there’s something wrong with talking about the sexuality of queer celebrities. Carrie didn’t say something new or shocking about Travolta. Next thing you know Behar and Cohen will profess shock if someone “outs” Anderson Cooper or Jodie Foster.
