Howard Bragman’s gay publicity machine has set up the talk show circuit for a mysterious big coming out.But who will it be?
Zap2It says the celeb is booked for People, the View and several other talk shows. Guesses have been everyone from Anderson Cooper to Ryan Seacrest to Queen Latifah.
“In the past Bragman has helped NFL defensive lineman Esera Tuaolo, LPGA star Rosie Jones, WNBA star Sheryl Swoops and retired NBA center John Amaechi come out. He also orchestrated the plans for former “Party of Five” Mitchell Anderson, “Married with Children” co-star Amanda Bearse and aided Dick Sargent of “Bewitched” fame to come out on Entertainment Tonight. Most recently, he planned Chaz Bono’s announcement of a transition from woman to man and got the news about Meredith Baxter being a lesbian out before tabloids reported her taking a lesbian cruise. ”
Whether it matters, of course, depends on who it is. Queen Latifah or Anderson Cooper would be huge. Some C-list celebrity trying to make a comeback? Not so much.
