    Default Lance Bass of `N Sync reveals he's gay

    NEW YORK - Lance Bass, band member of 'N Sync, says he's gay and in a "very stable" relationship with a reality show star. Bass, who formed 'N Sync 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.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    "I knew that I was in this popular band and I had four other guys' careers in my hand, and I knew that if I ever acted on it or even said (that I was gay), it would overpower everything," he tells the magazine.

    'N Sync is known for a string of hits including "Bye Bye Bye" and "It's Gonna Be Me." The band went on hiatus in 2002. Bass has also found headlines for undertaking astronaut training and failing to raise money for a trip into space.

    Bass says he wondered if his coming out could prompt "the end of 'N Sync." He explains, "So I had that weight on me of like, `Wow, if I ever let anyone know, it's bad.' So I just never did."

    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.

    "The thing is, I'm not ashamed that's the one thing I went to say," Bass says. "I don't think it's wrong, I'm not devastated going through this. I'm more liberated and happy than I've been my whole life. I'm just happy."

    This is what the media is producing as news??????????????????
    Why was this even posted do you think anyone actually cares about Lance's
    sexual prefrence?
    Maybe the guys debating the legality of Playboy in the firehouse might have an interest.

    1. Because I can
    2. This is a news forum...it was on the news
    3. Why do you care that I posted this?
    4. Whether there are respones to the article or not does not bother me one bit.
    5. Would you be happier if I would have posted how Andrea Yates was found not guilty reason of insanity?

    Who or What is N'Sync?

    A boy band from the late 90's I'm guessing and seemed to have faded out.

    But who in the heck cares?

    "celebrity" twits come out (no pun intended) with this crap jsut because it gets their name back in the news and it makes business sense for them.

    Most people couldn't care less.

    Reconfirming the obvious I guess.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Default Since we are on the subject....

    'Survivor' Richard Hatch sent to prison

    Associated Press
    Jul. 24, 2006 10:39 AM


    PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Richard Hatch has been sent to a federal prison in Oklahoma as he serves a 51-month sentence for failing to pay taxes on the $1 million he won on the debut season of "Survivor."

    Hatch, 45, of Newport, arrived last week at the Federal Transfer Center in Oklahoma City. It wasn't immediately clear why Hatch was moved or whether he will serve out his prison sentence at the facility, which is a hub for prisoners transferring through the federal system.

    A federal jury convicted Hatch in January of failing to pay taxes on the "Survivor" prize and other income. He was sentenced in May to 51 months in prison by a judge who said the reality TV star had lied repeatedly on the witness stand.

    Hatch had previously been held at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility in Massachusetts.

    He would prefer to serve his sentence near family in Rhode Island or in Florida, said his lawyer, Michael Minns.

    "He should be in a camp," Minns said. "The camps are the most comfortable of the uncomfortable. They are still jails, but they get to see the sky and be outside. It's bad for Richard, who is an outdoor person."

    Hatch became known on the CBS show as the "fat naked guy" for refusing to wear clothes.

    Wondering if the other 4 members of the band will show the intestinal fortitude and come out like Lance did. (I ain't buying all those hotties that Justin Timberlake supposedly dated. I'm absolutely positive that they were all beards like NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon's former wife and current girlfriend were/are.) And BTW, with a name like LANCE, what else could he be but a faggaluh. DUH, ya think???? Sheesh......entertainers, it's almost a requirement nowadays.

    To end all speculation, we just need to get Tom Cruise to come out.

    Again, not that I care. I just want to see everyone stop complaining about it.
