All these 'one foot in the grave' gay marriages are really funny. I guess old age activates the romance gene for our fey-geriatric set. I hope they find a vaccination for it before it strikes me. I'd have to pull one out the grave.
These 'one foot in the grave' marriages are too funny. I guess the affect of advancing age on us old fey mo's is triggering our romance gene. I hope they develop a vaccination quickly before it strikes me, I'd have to dig someone out of a grave to be my betrothed.
I'm dying to hear Robin Roberts' comment. She can't be silent about her coworker coming out and getting married.
Sorry for the double post at r1 & r2. I thought I had done something wrong while posting and it didn't post. I guess I'm just too eager to see myself published.

Considering she is fighting for her life right now, Sam's marriage is the last thing on her mind.
Robin is spending time with her husband,
She'd have some comment if a het coworker was getting married. Now she'll use the health crisis as an excuse not to say anything. That woman is going to die closeted if it kills her.
It's so brave of him to come out just now. He must have just figured out the truth.
Wonder if Anderson Cooper will skip this wedding like he did Thomas Roberts wedding.
She's in the closet therefore a "no count" so let's not give the bitch free publicity on DL.
Robin's parents are both now dead, her mother just this summer.
Her sister and brother probably already know so she should go ahead.
Maybe she 'n' Oprah can make it a two-fer.
Sam's husband-to-be is Brazilian!
I've never cared for Robin. I don't think she would have her position except the black competition is so weak. She possesses less warmth than Don Rickles.
On the contrary, R5 - Robin's recovering nicely and her two gay co-stars visited her in the hospital just yesterday - see their photo at the link....
Am I thinking of someone else... or didn't he go on and on that he wasn't gay, and was pissed off at all of the internet gossip saying he was?
R30, that was Anderson Cooper.
I *knew* that was makeup.
I think Ruben is marrying Sam to become a citizen. Oh yeah.
Thomas Roberts leading the gay, I mean, way.
No. No. NOOOOOOOOOOO! This CANNOT be true.
I bet Sam's betrothed is tired of having to correct all the people who call him RubeN instead of his real name which is RubeM.
Get is straight, everyone...the name is RubeM!
Husband looks a little like Tom Hardy.
Sam Champion is starting to look embalmed--easy on the Botox, girl!
Sam's marrying late in life, 51.
Good for Sam. He's a complete cheeseball, but it will be much easier to respect him now.
Robin Roberts tweeted to congratulate and said she hopes to be well enough to attend.
Today GMA staff interviewed Sam with husband-to-be just smiling. When Sam said it's Rubem, not Ruben, Josh commented "he waited about eight months to tell us it's not Ruben." Sam said "He'll take it either way."
Looks like Shawn's been out of the picture since his Bond Street clothing shop closed more than a year ago.
Rubem will be called Ruben and fucking like it. He's nothing more than a hot piece of Brazilian trade who's only accomplishment in life is becoming the future Mrs. Sam Champion.
What is it with trash thinking they can put on airs, acting indignant when others treat them with what little respect they deserve? It's actually pretty audacious...
What will Ann Romney say when she co-hosts?
Presumably she'll attend alone r41, right, because it's not like she has a significant other that she would attend weddings with. At least none that she cares to acknowledge.
I always thought Sam and Robin would get married.
What r42 described is here. All of the regulars (minus Robin) congratulating Sam and Rubem (seen offstage) during the broadcast this morning.
I thought Sam was already out years agin just didn't make a big deal about it? I remember Andy Cohen Outing him years ago when he said Sam was with his boyfriend at some party.
Are we sure Sam is gay? Could this be a GMA ratings ploy?
Thomas Roberts didn't have many A gays at his wedding. I wonder who will be at Sam's?
[quote]When Sam made his debut at WABC in 1990-something, he was young, blonde, a real disco queen.
Literally! I moved to NYC in the early '90s and developed a massive crush on Sam as soon as I turned on the evening news. Imagine my surprise a few weeks later to see him dancing shirtless on top of a table at the Limelight! I think he may be the first "confirmed-gay" celebrity I ever encountered. I saw him a few more times at clubs (before leaving NYC) but never mustered up the nerve to approach him -- plus it became clear very quickly, observing him at the clubs, that he had a thing for muscular black guys and dark-skinned Latinos, and I'm none of the above.
It's a little sad to see, via R28's video, just how artificial his looks have gotten since his WABC debut. He *was* a natural, hunky blond with great teeth at one point, but now it's clearly all highlights and blindingly white veneers, along with an obvious eye job and copious facial fillers (and possibly cheek implants). He looked particularly bad with his hair grown out a few years back.
Wow, R54, I seriously had no idea Sam was still closeted!
On GMA today it was mentioned that Josh Elliott is living with Sam. Whassup with that?
Anderson and Sam have influenced me too, to burrow even deeper into my closet!
Maybe nearly dying might convince Robin Roberts to come out.
Josh is the next one to come out on GMA, R56, before Robin returns from her sick leave.
It'll be Josh coming out for February sweeps, Robin for the big May sweeps.
They'll save David Muir's coming out for the less-important mid-summer sweeps, and then in September 2013 Diane Sawyer will return to GMA for a "special" announcement.
