Oh, no, not him again.

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 ruining 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.

LOL! That's so funny :D Only Marini could say it's "uncool" something like this :)

I used to search for Marini's interviews because I loved to hate him, he always said the wrong thing! lol! Long time without reading anything from him but this is funny.

Awww, about Luke, but don't worry Marini is also a patological liar, I'm sure that being in the business he has lied many times about closeted actors, he sure know a lot of them :) On this case, I was really more mad with Richard Chamberlain when he said that it was silly for a young actor to come out. He said that when he was in B&S and I'm sure that Luke didn't appreciate that putting in risk his career by doing something so brave and being so honest and compasionate could be defined as silly for someone who waited to come out until he was 70 years old. I wonder if there was a lot of tension in set after Chamberlain said something so stupid and painful.

I think Chamberlain is indeed very bitter, but he HAS wasted too many years of his life being in the closet. I think that Luke most likely didn't care much. A lot of others, like Ron Rifkin, Sally Field, Rachel Griffiths, Dave Annable and Matthew of course, were so proud of him.
