    A slow HSS news day, so I thought I'd post this from BlindGossip.com:
    Which d*ceased TV icon hid his gay lifestyle so well from fans and industry associates that not a single person approached his longtime lover at his f*neral to offer condolences? But now the secret’s getting out – and one of his famous former co-stars from the classic sitcom they starred on intends to reveal all the juicy details in a tell-all book.

    I guessed John Ritter.....:dontknow:

    Is John Ritter considered an icon.

    I wouldn't have thought so but considering the shit pumped out by the networks these days I guess the bar has been lowered

    I think Three's Company is considered a 'classic'. Other guesses were Sherman Hemsley and Andy Griffith. I cannot believe that Weezy would have married a gay.

    Really? I always got the gay vibe from him (and John Ritter too) but didn't Tony Randall have a bunch of wives and kids?

    But who would he "famous co-star" be? I think most from The Jeffersons are dead or none really famous

    Andy Griffith would be a good guess as certainly Ron Howard or even Jim Nabors could qualify as "famous co-star"

    Why would that be so terrible. I think it's ironic, considering his tv character persona, but hey! no biggie, right?

    None of the Jeffersons stars are super-famous, but what about All in the Family? The Jeffersons was a spin-off, so maybe Sally Struthers is taking time away from helping starving Africans to write a tell all, or Rob Reiner? Or Stretch Cunningham:c
