Is he gay?\
Sent from my iPhone.
Yes, he''s gay. He''s also out, initially as a result of appearing at a different NLGJA conference%0D\
He was totally closeted and bearded until he worked his way from local news up to HLN. When he was at HLN he appeared on a National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association panel when he was glass closeted expecting it wouldn''t get out (plenty of NLGJA members aren''t publicly out) but was outed over it by a newspaper. He put out a brief statement acknowledging his sexuality at the time.
Thomas Roberts to the rescue.
Is he married? He''s wearing a wedding band in the picture.\
Bill Ritter from WABC is gay??
Is Jeffery Kofman from ABC News attending?
Yay! Rick Folbaum''s OUT!
too bad he''s fat now
Unfortunately, Thomas Roberts is a whole lotta CRAZY.
While TR was closeted to the world at large before he appeared at the NLGJA conference in Miami a few years back, he:%0D\
a) never bearded - he and his partner Patrick have been a couple for over 10 years%0D\
b) was not closeted at work among his peers. It was only when he started getting a national profile (from his HLN work - when People wanted to name him one of America''s most eligible bachelors) that he came out, with his partner.
Bill Ritter is not gay, just gay-friendly.%0D\
VERY gay friendly - his first wife (with whom he had two daughters, now teenagers) left him for another woman.%0D\
Maybe it''s more gay-adjacent than gay-friendly.
Sade Baderinwa is gay friendly or maybe more? She''s the only WABC staffer Charles Perez liked.
Rick Folbaum has the best CSL I''ve ever seen.\
I wonder if I buy him a drink and corner him at the reception, if he would make good use of them...
Interesting that Bill Ritter is a guest, I had heard that his wife left him for another woman. I''d take him in a heartbeat.
Sade is gay-friendly, not gay.%0D\
Interestingly, everyone here at the station is pretty gay-friendly (or just gay - Sam Champion, Steve Bartelstein, Dave Evans, etc.)%0D\
So Charles Perez''s digs about nobody liking him here have NOTHING to do with his being gay - he was just a bitchy human being.
[quote] he never bearded%0D
False. He himself has said in interview he bearded on his way up in the news business and he even described how he went about it.%0D
[quote] was not closeted at work among his peers. %0D
Also false. In interview he's said he was closeted to his peers and actively deceived them until he got to the national level with HLN and finally decided to come out to co-workers.%0D
[quote] It was only when he started getting a national profile (from his HLN work - when People wanted to name him one of America's most eligible bachelors) that he came out, with his partner.%0D
He worked at HLN for some time before he came out. He came out with a very brief statement after being outed against his wishes when he appeared on the NLGJA panel. He did not discuss his sexuality on air ever on HLN and he did not consent to interviews regarding his sexuality until he'd left HLN, went through the Manhunt pick up profile with naked pics scandal, been let go from the Insider, and hadn't been able to land any other TV jobs.%0D
All the same it's good that he's out now and it's nice that he decided to open up about sexuality with interviews and on air even if he did it with the interviews when he would have felt he had nothing to lose and maybe something to gain from it and did it on air when he landed on an actively pro-gay liberal network.
He is not crazy. And he''s smart.
Wait! All these responses and no one has yet mentioned those Manhunt naked pictures?
Don''t know if Rick is gay or not, but I do know that he is married with 4 kids
Folbaum, half nose.\
Rick had a very bad nose job. The tip was cut off, instead of being filed down.
Park Avenue Plastic Surgeon
He may have kids, R31 (and I think it''s only two, not four), but his lips have sucked my cock more than once, and quite well, too.
Formerly Fox News
Glad Rick Folbaum''s nose was cut, so it could not interfere with the blow job.
He has a bad case of gay tard face.
Rick as 4 kids according to his own words. He tweets about them on occation
He clearly also sucks cock on occasion...
Thanks for posting those pictures. I''d seen the frontal shot before, but never laid eyes on the reverse. I''ve had a bit of a crush on Thomas Roberts since before he came out publicly, but I had no idea that his ass and legs were so great. Even his ballsack (not usually something I admire on a guy) is pretty. What a treat. Thanks again.
Thomas has a great ass - I hope he''s a bottom!
Today was Thomas'' first day in his new time slot. It was nice to see him at 8 a.m. here on the West Coast. A live speech from President Obama took up most of the hour though so Thomas wasn''t on screen as much as I would have liked. %0D\
His hour was followed up by Richard Lui (also formerly of Headline News). Does anybody know if Richard is gay?
Earlier this week Thomas had Jeff Corwin on during his hour. Jeff was listed as an environmental expert (or something) and Thomas asked him about the radiactivity coming off the failing Japanese nuclear plant and how the weather will affect dispersal. %0D\
A few observations.%0D\
1. I don''t think Jeff could really answer the questions that were being asked. I wasn''t surprised by that since his expertise seems to be more in the realm of animal behavior in nature. %0D\
2. Jeff was looking much more chunky then when he was jumping out of rafts to chase aligators (or whatever he used to do). Perhaps his new job as MSNBC ''environmental expert'' is too much of a desk job. He''s still cute, but looking thick.%0D\
3. I wondered if either Thomas or Jeff wanted to nail each other as badly as I wanted to see them both do exactly that. %0D\
And today Thomas had a great looking green tie on. Happy St. Patrick''s Day! I could go for a Shamrock Shake.%0D\
Jeff Corwin''s cock still belongs to Anderson Cooper.\
Thomas is also looking chunkier than he did on HLN, and when those nude photos were taken.
However, I still would not throw either one of them out of bed for eating crackers.
Amen R42 and R43!
Does anyone have the rest of Thomas Roberts'' naked photos?
I''ve spent the past 2 nights watching Thomas Roberts'' late night coverage of the hurricane. He''s been very comforting in a time of stress.
Why did MSNBC put the queers (Thomas and Jeff Ranieri) on in the middle of the night?
Not very progressive, bitches!
Ranieri is a gay? Cool. I suppose since he''s a weatherman I should have figured.\
Normally you''d be right R47. Overnight on the weekend has got to be the crappiest shift. But this was the lead anchor for a live breaking news event. Normally MSNBC doesn''t even run news in the evening and overnight on the weekend. They actually bumped reruns of "Lockup" and "To Catch a Predator" for the coverage.\
I wonder if Thomas spent the night at 30 Rock. He said he lives on the 25th floor of his apartment building while one of the forecasters was explaining how much more intense the wind speed is at higher elevations.
On his FB page, Thomas said his shift was 11 pm - 5 am EDT, and that he''d have to walk up the 25 flights since his building posted a notice (which he put on his FB page) that the power might be shut off for elevators. \
So he didn''t sleep at 30 Rock.\
No one did - all the NBC crowd were put up at the nearby hotels, or worked shifts and then went home (I know Alex Witt went home and came back).
Has anyone ever met Thomas Roberts? I''d imagine he''s more flammy off T.V.
[quote] Ranieri is a gay? Cool. I suppose since he''s a weatherman I should have figured.\
What, are you headless?\
You can see Ranieri flaming from space!
