welcome to my fantasies
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.

I am just going to ignore the whole Marini thing - okay no, I need to say something about that too.
My take is, that his words are a mix of using the wrong words and a too big ego. (I know, I use the wrong words a lot too...)

What I really wanted to comment on was Wentworth Miller's speech. I did not know about it, therefor I hadn't seen it before. But, Wow, was I moved. It happens rarely, but kudos to Mr Miller and his bravery to talk about his innermost fears. That was really intense... so, thank you for sharing that link and I hope, that he can find happiness and someone who loves him, the way he needs to be loved.

Have a nice day

Well, because Miller was linked to Macfarlane for a while, I followed his Imdb board for a while after he came out a few weeks ago (oh the bags of popcorn I ate during the 'cat-fights' between 'fans'!)

When I saw the video I was moved by him as well. His pain felt so real. Seeing him talk about his struggle to come out and then hearing Marini flippantly say that he would out someone who's gay, but still in the closet, just ticked me off.

I read that Dominic Purcell, Wentworth's co-star in "Prison Break" got quite some negative remarks from fans because he kept the secret, but I think it was a wise decision, just like Matthew didn't talk about Luke either. (Though I wonder what he would have answered if someone had asked him the question.)
