Why do I even listen? Urgh, did I really need another reason to dislike Marini? Nope! Yet, he provides me with one, once again. I read some comment on AfterElton (Yes, I know, it has another name now) and went searching for it because I know that AE has it's own way of interpreting things, but I found the supposed comment Marini made on www.bethenny.com
The first question asked of him was: "Would you ever lie to the press to help a famous gay friend stay in the closet?
I appreciate his attempt to be modern in stating that it's 'uncool' to be the closet (was it ever 'cool' to be in the closet? It's been called a lot of things, but 'cool/uncool'????), and good fo him, that he was a witness during a same-sex wedding and I agree that it's most likely better to be who you need to be, however I still think it's not HIS
decision to out anyone and/or discuss their sexual orientation with others, especially members of the press.
Now I'm even more happy that he only started
acting in B&S since season 4, so Luke Macfarlane could come out on his own terms and not because Marini couldn't keep his trap shut.
I recently watched Wentworth Miller's speech for the Human Rights Campaign
about how much trouble he had had to accept himself and how he struggled about coming out, (I wonder in how far it cost him his supposed relationship with Luke Macfarlane.) and I'm glad that he didn't have someone like Marini thinking his internal fight is 'uncool' and go yanking him out of the closet by discussing with the press what another actor is not ready to discuss with anyone just yet.
Nope, again he didn't score many points with me.
Just my opinion, though.
