I have a straight friend who talks just like this guy. So cute. Both of them.
Is he cut or uncut? I can't enlarge the pics in R5's post.
I wonder what the folks at HSN think of his nude pics? You just know those gay HSN execs are all over that.
I'm curious to know if Brett is married. Since he started at HSN, he's worn what I think is a wedding band on his right hand ring finger.
Who is the lucky man?
The guy only married him for his employee discount.
[quote]He's played gay in many of his roles, but hasn't come out
That's because he's not gay. He's married to a woman.
When a guy wears a band of the right does that mean he is gay and has a partner? I have seen gay guys wear a band on their right hands and I thought maybe that is what it means.
BTW, there are other guys on QVC and HSN who seem gay. That young handsome British guy on QVC? HSN? late at night seems gay.
Yeah r11. I think you mean Adam Freeman on HSN. He comes across as gay, so he immediately married one of the girls that models clothes on HSN.
Also see (recently released) QVC host Jonathan Redford for a similar trick.
Bill Green is a long time HSN host and he's gay. And Aaron Berger isn't a host, but he's one of their product experts (the people that often do more talking than the hosts during segments) and I'm certain that he's gay.
And another product expert whose name I can't think of - he's a short guy and he does a lot of segments with Chukerman - maybe because they are the same height. I think he's gay as well. When Chukerman joined the channel those 2 would have onscreen chatter about him welcoming Brett to Florida and showing him around, or something along those lines.
As for the ring question, I have the same suspicion that you do about the significance of the ring worn on the right hand, but I've never had that confirmed by any reliable source.
Chukerman might be married to a woman but he is clearly gay. His only acting roles have been gay roles, he was an entertainment reporter, now is a shopping channel host and pings like crazy. Taking a billboard out saying I'm Gay is basically what he has done with his career. Maybe Brett just hasn't read his billboard yet. When he comes out it will surprise no one.
Chukerman is gay as a goose. The idea of him marrying a woman is comical.
I feel badly for the lady he married. Does she really have no idea or was she in on it?
More importantly, will his wife play Gooch in the Mame revival?
Just to clear up this misconception, Brett Chukerman is NOT married to a female.
Are we positive? There are plenty of interviews he's given where he says he's straight. If he's married, wouldn't that mean he married a woman?
I only know of one interview with him when Eating Out first came out and he refused to answer if he was gay or straight saying he didn't want to disappoint his fans.
I'm guessing this is a promotion for him. Brett has a regular schedule now on HSN. He used to appear on random days and mostly during the late night hours.
Now he gets the regular morning segment that the gayish British dude used to have. Mon - Thurs from 6 - 9 Eastern.
He must be sucking all the right dick.
He loves to do drag.
I always feel so manly when I watch Brett on HSN.
he sure talks a lot! his breath probably stinks, even though I found him cute in eating out...
Brett is gay but remains very private. The other hosts and experts that present merchandise on HSN often refer to their spouses on air when selling products. Brett never references a wife or husband, just his parents, grandma, and dogs & cats.
Some of the female HSN hosts post pics of themselves with their husbands or kids on their fB pages, but when Brett posts personal pics, they are either with his costars, coworkers, or of him alone. He has posted pics when he goes on vacation but they are scenic shots or of him alone.
Only recently has he started saying "we" on air (he and his husband got a house together in Florida) but he does not mention with whom he lives.
Many of us in "alternative lifestyles" wear a commitment or wedding band on the opposite hand (right) and Brett wears his wedding band on his right hand.
He obviously wants to keep his personal life private and I can respect that. I've chatted with him on the HSN chat and he is always gracious and thankful his customers shop with HIM. I think he is very talented as a host on HSN and I appreciate the gay movies he was in. I'm just upset he didn't marry me :(
I wish Peter Kilcullen was gay!
Brett's actually "gayed up" quite a bit since starting at HSN. I think he saw that the key reason Bill Green is still at HSN and all of the other male hosts they had on air for decades are long gone is that he successfully became the viewers'(who are 98% female) gay BFF. Like Bill he hosts jewelry and fashion hours and "flirts" with the viewers that call in.
Nobody get's the prime spots on these networks (early morning, and late primetime etc) because of their skills on the casting couch. It all boils down to who generates the bucks. Speaking of gay shopping channel hosts, that's why the likes of that strapping, lisping farmgirl Shannon(you could literally DIE if you don't get this)Smith has been a fixture in the 9 pm - 1 am Eastern slot for at least a decade. As annoying and melodramatic as she is, she rakes in the bucks.

None of those gay shopping network hosts talk about their boyfriends/husbands - Brett doesn't, Bill doesn't, David on QVC doesn't. I guess they don't want to "offend" their viewers, which are mostly fraus and old ladies from the Midwest and the south.
Hot daddy Peter Kilcullen is on this hour!
i've heard some of the hsn hosts talk about their husbands many times before. Even if it's just in passing. Don't know about the guys though. Maybe hsn tells the gay hosts not to mention their partners for fear that the bigots out there won't buy from them. Whatever he is - Brett is fine!
I used to have such a crush on him. I'm glad he's doing what he loves and getting all the prime spots on HSN. Suck that dick girl and make your money!
lot of posts saying he slept or sucked his way to the top. HSN's CEO is a woman, don't think he slept with her! why can't he be successful because he worked hard and is a good host?
Are they selling cars on HSN now? I just saw Brett in some driveway showing off a Toyota Rav4. But I didn't leave the channel on long enough to figure out what exactly they are selling.
Yes, I've seen ... briefly ... that they sell cars ... Toyotas ... on the air before.
R7 Brett is Jewish. That must answer your question. Also, on my TV when I watched Eating Out, it was clear he was cut.
I've lusted for Brett since I saw him, all of him, in Eating Out. I don't like his new hair do though. All that hair, brushed straight up in the front, makes him look like he drove to work without a windshield.
On his "Brett Chukerman of QVC" Facebook page, he posted a photo of his "grammy" and him to sadly announce her death. That was in mid-August of this year. In that photo, he is wearing a narrow, gold wedding band set with diamonds on his left ring finger. His right hand does not show. Because of his very short wavy/curly hair it looks like an older photo. What are we to make of that?
I guess he announced he is going to be a father today on hsn.
With his wife or husband or by himself
He announced it via his Facebook and Twitter as well, but I really would have liked to see what carefully selected words he used to announce it live to his HSN audience.
On Facebook he says...
[quote]Today was a special day for me, it was such a treat to share with our viewers that I'm going to be a dad! Our little baby boy is due December 4th, and I couldn't be more excited!
OUR little baby boy. So there is a partner (at least) and quite possibly a husband...which would explain the wedding ring.
I actually think he tries to pass off being straight
About an hour ago I had HSN on for a few minutes because I was channel surfing and found Brett was hosting a show. At the end he signed off saying this was his last show until after Christmas because he was taking a paternity leave. Are there any insiders around here who know the story behind him becoming a daddy? It's pretty difficult in Florida isn't it? Is it by surrogate because isn't adoption illegal for gays in Florida? IIRC Rosie O'Donnell was funding two lesbians who were trying to fight the law.
Have seen him for a long time on HSN (when I am channel surfing..so have never known his name) and always instantly thought he was gay, gay, gay. It's a stereotype to assume but, with him, never thought for an instant anything other than that he was gay, gay, gay and out, out, out. I mean. C'mon. Please.
NOT "Out. Out. Out" even though he played convincingly gay in the Indie film Eating Out 2. Great kisser & full frontal nude in that film. I fell in love/lust with his cock&ass in that film. It's worth buying the DVD IMO just to see ALL of him.
Just happened to surf past HSN yesterday. Brett was still there. Surprise! He was saying good bye again until after Christmas with the same line, that he was going on paternity leave. He did add something he didn't say before, that he would be posting pictures on his Facebook page to keep in touch.
I'm sure the Facebook photos will be only of the new baby solo, or possible Brett with the baby. But I would be shocked if he posted a 'my two dads' type photo.
I'll be watching!
I wonder if Aaron Berger is the other daddy.
Or maybe the other short guy that demos products all the time. Can't remember his name, but when Brett started with HSN I seem to remember those 2 joking about the other guy picking Brett up from the airport when he moved to FL to start with HSN.
It's disgusting how many people on this site start talking about the "casting couch" when speculating as to anyone's success. Pretty sure he's independently wealthy which allowed him time to secure a career in LA.
Late last night Brett posted the first picture of his new son, Jack, on his Facebook page. As everyone expected, the baby is the only one in the picture ... plus the elbow of someone in a powder blue sweater.
