It was revealed here that Lance Bass was gay and dating Reichen before any "mainstream" media outlet reported that fact\
I read in one of the theater threads here that NPH was gay and dating a guy named David Burtka. This was a long time before he came out.\
I read in one of the country music threads that Chely Wright was gay. This was at least a couple years ago.
I don''t think it was exclusively Datalounge (though I doubt your examples were either) but Ricky Martin has been gay here since day one.
A lot of stuff I posted that no one cared about / believed.
Too much stuff to repeat. You all hate real gossip.
DL was the first place I heard about the John Edwards affair!
Pretty much everything about Michael Jackson, including his having to wear a fake nose.
I met Cheryl once at the Piggly Wiggly. Suffice to say the rumors of her odiferousness are quite true.
Melissa Etheridge''s split had a long run up (of several months) on DL before it was finally announced last month.
Someone posted an item about Meredith Baxter being involved with a woman a good three years before Meredith came out.\
Not gossip, per se, but I remember someone posting way back at the end of 2008 or beginning of 2009 that Monique was going to win the Oscar for Precious. It seemed ludicrous at the time. Precious was a small film that didn''t even have a distributor at the time and Oscar-predictions-a-year-in-advance are a dime a dozen. Besides: who could imagine Monique winning an Oscar?
Although Jim McGreevey''s homosexuality was well known, I believe someone on DL had posted that he was going to come out due to some scandal weeks before he actually did.
My favorite ''insider gossip that was scorned but turned out to be true'' is about Marlon Brando''s impending death. Instead of updating their death pools at work, everyone upbraided the person (friend of a private nurse? something like that?) for passing on the information.
That Kirker''s retail space would fail.
"Although Jim McGreevey''s homosexuality was well known, I believe someone on DL had posted that he was going to come out due to some scandal weeks before he actually did."\
I know someone here posted that he was having an affair with Golan Cipel - this was at least a year before he came out
And despite all her efforts to the contrary, I still think DL was right in outing Marcia Cross as a lesbian.\
I remember McGreevey being outed here at least 2 years before he did it on TV; around the time he had that "accident" while "Hiking" at the Jersey shore.
[quote]I still think DL was right in outing Marcia Cross as a lesbian.\
I agree and I think it was the mention of the DL gossip in a major gossip column that sent her to a marriage/mommy factory.
If I recall correctly, the McGreevey post was something like "Two Words: Golan Cipel"
I can only hope all the stories about Texas Gov. Rick Perry are true and will come out before he can run for president.
Only one from the thousands you people label as gay, that cant be good news
[quote]I can only hope all the stories about Texas Gov. Rick Perry are true and will come out before he can run for president.\
Hey, let''s hope the stories come out before the general gubernatorial election so that we can get a Democrat in the governor''s mansion for the first time since Ann Richards.
r16, so are you Ross Perot or Don Imus?
Some of my best friends are gays.
[quote]And despite all her efforts to the contrary, I still think DL was right in outing Marcia Cross as a lesbian.\
I completely disagree. We did not successfully out her as a lesbian; we merely bought the single biggest elaborate scenario con in DL history, from a fictitious "ABC Insider" whose information proved to be 100% false. Said false info included Marcia being on the next cover of "The Advocate" and Andrew coming out as gay on DH in some swim team-related storyline.\
After the news entered the MSM, with DL getting prominent mentions, it subsequently destroyed our credibility with many in the outside world, and only added to the "oh, you gays think everyone is gay" mentality so many straights have.
NATO did it
So did we EVER identify Mariska Hargitay''s gf??
[quote] I don''t think it was exclusively Datalounge (though I doubt your examples were either) but Ricky Martin has been gay here since day one.\
Half of the hot men in hollywood have been "gay here since day one"
Um, but people actually knew who guys like NPH and Lance Bass were dating, it wasn''t like someone just said "they''re gay!" and it coincidentally happened to be true. Same with McGreevey. People actually knew details. \
I also recall lots of stories about Mark Foley being a chickenhawk before the page scandal.
I recall that someone posted here about three days before it happened that Ronnie Reagan was on his way out.
I remember that, too, r25. When someone like an ex-President is about to kick off, there are a lot of people who get notice to be prepared because it involves Secret Service and all the branches of military, other former Presidents, foreign heads of state, etc.
I also remember the Ronald Reagan post.
Somebody posted that Lisa Marie Presley and Nick Cage had just married in Hawaii before it made the news.
And someone posted news of Alice Ghostley''s death many hours before any news outlet announced it.\
DL used to be great for getting breaking news that way. Not so much now.
Quentin Tarantino''s foot fetish?\
[quote] You are either getting this e-mail because I''ve promised I would tell you this story and haven''t yet, you''re besties with someone I used to hook up with, or because my need for attention and adulation has reached such an all time high that I decided to pick 15 of you at random to listen to this story (most likely explanation), but all the same, below is the (in)famous but true story of how I met Quentin Tarantino..
[quote] fter a lengthy film discussion, Quentin suggests we head to bed, which is the point where I really start panicking. I have stalled for a good long time but the makeouts were really losing their appeal because you can only be sweated on so much, and we were getting closer to the moment of truth on whether I'd have to put out or not. The makeout continues for a while longer, and I'm really getting nervous about where the night may lead, kicking myself over not pretending to be more drunk and "passing out", and wishing he'd turn the damn lights off so that he won't notice that I'm wearing Hanes Her Way underwear the size of Canada that I bought at CVS that morning because my life is really just that sad and pathetic.
[quote] We make out some more, there's a little below the belt action that I try to avoid, as QT has the most unattractive penis I have ever seen (short. fat. nub-like. The chode of all chodes. Boys, those junior high pamphlets are lying when they say that all shapes and sizes are normal. Lying.) Just as I'm about to hyperventilate over the fact that he may try to put that horrific bodily implement anywhere near my Britney, he leans over and goes "Hey..."
[quote] I know this "Hey." This is the "Hey, should I get a condom?" hey that accompanies 20 minutes of ungratifying sex. As I'm trying to rapidly think of ways I can agent myself out of this deal, I hear what is without a doubt, the strangest question in the history of my life. Quentin Tarantino asks, "Can I suck on your toes while I jerk off?" What. The. Fuck.
arnold & Maria splitting was predicted about a year before it happened...
The book bio that was published when Lena Horne was still alive mentions two affairs/relationships she was ''thought to have'' with other women. That''s pretty substantial stuff to write about a still alive celeb w/o confirmation from the other women.
Someone posted about a LiLo traffic accident in L.A. right after it happened and was ridiculed for making stuff up. Then it turned out to be true.
So much good DL gossip in the 10+ years that I''ve been posting here. I have broken some myself .. closeted Sean Peen tweeking beater/cheater, Tracy Morgan boozing with white twinks (hence, homophobia), Rick Springfield fucking mtf chicks with dicks, Gavin Newsom in fake marriage, Dennis Hof confirming that Hugh Hefner is bi...
Pee Wee Poundstone
I remember that a poster broke the news that his aunt was in Hawaii and stumbled upon Nic Cage and Lisa Marie getting married. The story broke in the MSM much later that day.
If that is true, I hope the rumour about Gale Harold being bi, and fucking Randy Harrison turns out to be true too :)
Well, since you label everyone a tweaker, you have to be right at least once in awhile PWP.%0D\
90% of what is considered original gossip here is not. %0D\
The McGreevy thing might have been one of the few scoops.%0D\
The Marcia Cross thing was a publicity stunt for this place.%0D\
R35, that was me!
I remember it well
I remember someone saying he was an insider posting Johnny Carson was on his way out about three weeks before he died.
Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Gossip on DL that turns out to be true is dumb luck. No one on here has any inside information to anything.
R42 = another reason we get no real gossip anymore.
I read about NPH being gay and dating Butka here and then I went to see NPH in a play in London and Burtka was the usher. I thought hmmmmmmmm DL must be correct.
Why post real gossip when five people will chime in with clever (they think) ways of saying it''s an elaborate scenario? Who wants to go to the trouble of posting some great info, only to be dumped on by a bunch of jackasses?
I cannot stop laughing at the Tarentino story. He is such a dork.
When Gale Harold had a very serious motorcycle accident in 2008 it was on datalounge before anywhere. A long time before...
However if a certain washed up, alcoholic rocker ends up on Celebrity Rehab and comes out as gay or bi, I will shit myself and say "I remember that thread!!"
@43 you are right. \
@42 is one of those sad souls, doesn''t even know a Retail Queen to give him small town Peyton Place dish! I live in San Fran- celebs tripping around all of the time-my friends act with them, do their hair & makeup, serve them drinks & food and sell them cars clothes and houses. Only reason I''d love to live in LA would be for the dish!\
Gaga=human growth hormones. Armani HATES San Francisco its too low-brow gay and nasty for him, he never attends any events here at his Post Street branch.
Pee Wee Poundstone
Anyone who sees his movies knows that QT has a major foot fetish.
r45 there are some people who will post the opposite: ignore the trolls and thanks for the info.\
Whenever I do disagree with an item, I don''t go after the person. \
The EST screamers have gotten louder & increased lately, but there are still people here who appreciate decent gossip. \
When we do get any really good gossip, WM will delete it. \
I''ve been saving threads/items lately.
Does anyone here believe Gale Harold from queer as folk is bisexual, it was rumoured here that he was and that he had an affair with his blonde co-star.
What is with the Gale Harold/QAF obsessives bumping up old threads the last few days? %0D\
The Gale motorcycle accident was on IMDB among other places like EW, at the same time as it was here.
"Who wants to go to the trouble of posting some great info, only to be dumped on by a bunch of jackasses?"\
If you''ve been here longer than 36 hours, you know the drill. OP posts something--anything--& it gets shit on. If that''s your reason, maybe you''re too short for this ride.\
Besides, if you know it''s true, wouldn''t you enjoy watching a bunch of anonymous strangers spend hours dissecting it in an attempt to outdo each other? Be secure in your knowledge & fuck with them right back. (& I''m not talking about posting that "so & so eats old people''s excrement''. )
[quote]The EST screamers have gotten louder & increased lately %0D\
That''s an understatement. And the nastiness has reached new levels. %0D\
[quote]there are still people here who appreciate decent gossip. %0D\
Fewer and fewer. It doesn''t make sense to post gossip that only a handfull will appreciate when you have to put up with all kinds of bullcrap.
I read that Angelina Jolie was pregnant by Brad Pitt here a full week before it was announced. \
Ditto Cynthia Nixon being in a relationship with a woman.\
A few weeks before it happened someone here said that Mariska Hargitay would be bearding up soon, and would be announcing the relationship on a major television show. They said that the "boyfriend" is a gay man who would date and eventually marry her in exchange for her helping him with his career. He had to sign a contract, get her pregnant and bring all potential boyfriends home for her approval. When I later saw her on The View weeping about how in love she was with her new beau, I knew for sure that she is a lesbian. \
I also read about Eddie Murphy and Johnny Gill here first, which Tracy Edmonds later confirmed. . .
Maybe if people didn''t post so much bullshit here, both in gossip and elsewhere for so long, people might be more inclined to believe. But many state they enjoy all the EST threads around here. So the people have spoken. %0D\
I heard about the Mark Foley scandal on DL...weeks before it broke in the mainstream media.
Insiders, please share your gossip and ignore the naysayers. How I miss the days of Blue Agave!
another old timer
[quote]closeted Sean Peen tweeking beater/cheater, \
Wait, what? I know Sean Penn is a beater and a cheater but closeted? Details?
How many good gossip threads do you think we have here now out of over 600? Please link them.
when i wrote that i''d met a girl/young woman, when i was singing in LA in the early ''70s and was myself a girl/young woman, and she told me she''d been offered a job as an assistant to Karen Carpenter but it was understood that KC was gay and wanted a companion - so she declined. A DL''er wrote back "Prove it" right. i''ll just jump in my trusty time machine ...\
growing up in LA, i heard many many things long before the rest of the country - and those of you in LA know what I''m saying, you go to parties, you know someone in malibu ....\
so i''ll keep the clint eastwood stuff to myself - it''s too complicated anyway, suffice it tosay bi bi bi bye.
r62 probably not one outright because the last two we had were deleted.\
You have to find good gossip buried in other threads like ''summer move flops'' or something like that. There, you''ll get maybe 5-20 decent gossipy replies depending on the thread.\
There are a few tidbits here, and in the Daniel Craig Marries Rachel Weisz thread.
A lot of things said here (or copied here from other sources) about Owen Wilson and the former federal air marshal who he supposedly fathered a child with in January have turned out to be true. The search feature actually works, click on find a thread, type in his name, and then click on the word Search.
@61 I mean to write that TRACY MORGAN is closeted. Sean Penn is just a str8 misogynist tweeking cheater/beater.
Pee Wee Poundstone
John Palermo and Hugh Jackman brokeup...check out the date 05/15/2010 ...they announce their business split in August...Their was another thread as well something about them taking off their rings but I couldn''t find it.
[quote]Besides, if you know it''s true, wouldn''t you enjoy watching a bunch of anonymous strangers spend hours dissecting it in an attempt to outdo each other? Be secure in your knowledge & fuck with them right back. (& I''m not talking about posting that "so & so eats old people''s excrement''. )\
If I ever had any good gossip that I thought would eventually blow up, I''d be so smug sitting here watching all of you try to take me down. I''d say, "Take it or leave it." I''d be sure to return with a link to my original thread when the dirt finally broke.\
I don''t get the people who boo-hoo about no one believing them. It makes them look insecure, if not lying.
Is this the thread you meant R65?%0D\
I don''t think you had to be too savvy to know that relationship wasn''t going to work out.
There was a thread in 2005 speculating about gay politicians, and someone posted that Larry Craig had propositioned him in a DC bathroom once (eww!). Two years later, Larry''s toe tapping bathroom fun made headlines. \
Someone tipped us off in advance that Reagan was about to die. It seemed so out of the blue at the time.\
In one of the political threads in 2007, two days before McCain announced it, someone posted that John McCain was going to pick the "unknown governor of Alaska," as his running mate. I ignored it as did everyone else who read the thread - no one commented on that post at all. The thread was gone a few days later.\
Given that Ssrah Palin had never met John McCain until two days before he announced her as his running mate, I''ve wondered about the who, what, and why''s of that post and the subsequent disappearance of the thread since.\
There are some spooky DLers out there.
That conservative talking head and former military guy who turned out to be an old porn actor. That broke here, I think.
The call WAS coming from inside the house.
That Liam/Neeson fling Keram Sanchez mentioned in May 2010. It appeared to be true later when the movie opened.
You''re an isolated, bitter buffoon, R42.\
I have plenty of good dirt, but now only post a fraction of it here, sparingly, because it''s wearying and tedious to be attacked by the likes of you.
Aww ignore that imbecile, r76. It is first and foremost a GAY GOSSIP site, not some school ma''am''s soiree. If they need to be here they are as interested in looking for and at gossip as the next guy/gal.%0D\
Just carry on, a lot of people appreciate it and can make up their own minds. Theose people that shout too loud are just scared of the gossip being true imo.
Blowhards like R76 never have gossip, unless they''re telling you about what the lamesters in their neighborhood are doing. What a ridiculous blowhard.
I was born on Jone Fanda''s bote.
More about Karen Carpenter as a lesbian please!!
We knew that Peter Jennings had little time left and that Marlon Brando was dead here way before the AP had it. %0D\
[quote]Fewer and fewer. It doesn''t make sense to post gossip that only a handfull will appreciate when you have to put up with all kinds of bullcrap.\
Awwwwwww. What a little princess you are.
[quote]I don''t get the people who boo-hoo about no one believing them. It makes them look insecure, if not lying.\
Exactly. If you''re right your gossip will be proven. These, "well I''m leaving and I''m taking my toys with me -- SO THERE!!" types give themselves away everytime.
[quote] I read in one of the country music threads that Chely Wright was gay%0D\
"One of the country music threads"?%0D\
Since when have we had country music threads on datalounge?
The person who kept posting that ABC soaps would be gone by the end of the year was spot on.
Well one ABC soap is left still -- General Hospital -- but yeah the others are gone.
[quote]But many state they enjoy all the EST threads around here. So the people have spoken. %0D\
Exactly. And the webmaster has spoken when he says there are to be no more EST accusations and Noodles accusations. Webmaster was correct in calling DL collaborative fiction. It''s how we arrived at many threads that turned into DL all-star classics. There''s room here for fiction. There''s room here for gossip. Too many nasty people don''t want that. If some New Yorker wants to talk about getting it on with his building manager, why can''t we just laugh at it without aiming a hate-induced rant at the guy?%0D\
Countdown to a stupid accusation that I''m a New Yorker, 5 - 4 - 3 -
A lot of the EST threads are repetitive and stupid. How many times do we need to read about some "entitled frau" in a restaurant? Or what horrifying food was served to an outraged OP at an imaginary dinner/cocktail party? It may have been funny the first time, but when repetitive threads clutter the front page every day, it''s aggravating.
[quote]Blowhards like [R76] never have gossip, unless they''re telling you about what the lamesters in their neighborhood are doing. What a ridiculous blowhard.%0D\
But again, WHY are you condescending sluts HERE if it''s all beneath you?
Hugh Hefner used to hire teenage hustlers back in the 1970s when he was in his "bisexual phase" as he called it. He hired very young African American males.
I tend to believe that some of the people who scream "EST" or shriek in disbelief whenever some gossip is posted here are agents/reps in Hollywood who want to keep the lid on their clients.%0D\
Either that or just the typical basement-dwelling DL nitwit who has nothing better to do with his time.%0D\
I''ve also posted a tidbit of gossip about George Clooney that I heard through a friend and was shouted down with a typical "prove it" response. %0D\
I don''t give a shit. I''ve been on DL for years and I know how it rolls.
[quote]I don''t get the people who boo-hoo about no one believing them.%0D\
That''s not it. The point is that you don''t want to share anything with a bunch of nasty creeps. Let them wallow in their hate and miss out on good stories and interesting gossip. Take the gossip and stories elsewhere.
[r84] there were quite a few. Mentioned often were Ty Herndon, Chely Wright, Tim McGraw, Aaron Tippin, Kenny Chesney and Randy Travis among others
Yes, Tim McGraw!
[That''s not it. The point is that you don''t want to share anything with a bunch of nasty creeps. Let them wallow in their hate and miss out on good stories and interesting gossip. Take the gossip and stories elsewhere.%0D\
Where should we take out gossip?
R2, not all of us. There is a cynical (probably quite young and stupid, too) set here that wants to trash anything legitimate. \
I''d love to have you refresh my memory on your gossip.
Mchael Jackson was reported dead here before any of the news channels realised anything was wrong...
What they write:\
"I have plenty of good dirt, but now only post a fraction of it here, sparingly, because it''s wearying and tedious to be attacked by the likes of you."\
What they mean:\
"I like to make shit up but it pisses me off when posters with a lick of common sense rain on my sad little parade."
R42, you are just the kind of dickwad who should skip these threads.
WE DON''T NEED YOU HERE
"Datalounge gossip that turned out to be true"\
Reminds one of the old adage that a stopped clock is right twice a day.
Now, R63, calm down. So what if some idiot tells you to "prove it". I''m your age and know enough about background of that time to have a good idea when someone is telling the truth. I think I remember reading that comment and believed it. A lot of us enjoy the old and the new gossip (and understand that gossip is not fanfic or fantasy).\
Please come back and share. I love the good stuff.
Well, R97, why don''t you save your precious time and just skip these threads?
When the guy who brought the term "noodles" to DL, started posting his stories, there was some really funny stuff - and it didn't matter that it wasn't Hollywood gossip. To those of us who have never lived in a building with a superintendant or doorman, it was amusing to see the stories, no matter if true or not. They continued for awhile with no problem. Then the haters invaded. Who are they? Could it be:%0D
1. Fraus who can't deal with the thought their hubby may be getting some good blow jobs from a gay man?%0D
2. Fugly guys who are so ugly that they can't even gather enough money for a rentboy who won't run when they open the door to greet them?%0D
3. People who are jealous that their posts never get a response.%0D
Yes, I already know DL is not the Nifty Archives. But DL was a forum where a N.A-type story used to get some very funny, innovative, and clever additions to what was set down by the original poster. That's precisely what made it fun compared to N.A. stories. But too many nasty, hate-filled jackasses can't just skip a thread like that. Instead they go back again and again dumping their venom. %0D
When it comes to real gossip, we can look back to the great input from Blue Agave and remember the jealousy of David Urinestain who kept dissing him and trying to push him away. Urinestain wanted to be the DL gossip stah!
[quote][[R84]] there were quite a few. Mentioned often were Ty Herndon, Chely Wright, Tim McGraw, Aaron Tippin, Kenny Chesney and Randy Travis among others\
Aaron Tippin? He''s hot and he looks like an ''80s gay porn star, but I''ve never heard any gossip about him.
[r103] a lot of talk about AT back in the 90s. I think it centered mostly around making himself available when he needed to.
[r63] There is an Olivia-N-J and Karen Carpenter connection that I always found interesting.
Birds of a feather
@ reply 38: We all know Gale is big on privacy but remember his words: \
Interviewer: Peter Paige told me of the cast''s "no fucking" rule. However, he did admit that extras have been getting busy during backroom scenes. Have you witnessed love and drama on the set?\
GH: "I''ve seen it, just be assured that any time there''s a hot sexual environment; where there''s smoke there''s fire." \
In my opinion there were moments of fire between Gale & Randy off-screen...but of course evidence is circumstantial only coz that''s something personal and private.
[quote]The point is that you don''t want to share anything with a bunch of nasty creeps. Let them wallow in their hate and miss out on good stories and interesting gossip. Take the gossip and stories elsewhere.\
Fine. But if you do post here, you better take the good with the bad. DLers don''t exactly line up to kiss ass, you know?
Thank you r63, and the others who provide dishy gossip. I always thought Karen Carpenter pinged off the charts, and many of her problems came from being a lesbian child of crazy, dysfunctional, ultra-conservative parents. This situation certainly explains her ultimate fate.
lesbian who was also an anorexic teenager
The Deidre Hall is gay and divorcing her husband rumor was around for a bit, back when we were allowed to talk about soaps. \
I also remember the rumor that the abc soaps would be gone in 3 years, and Guiding light would be gone soon as well. And look what happened.\
DL used to be a source of all sorts of dish.
Not to talk Soaps, but IS Deidre Hall now a lesbian?
Someone posted the death of actress Sada Thompson before it hit the airwaves.
You heard it here first, Don Imus is near the end of his rope.
please r63, MORE details!!!!!!!
Oh please... that''s like saying Louis Anderson will eat something fried in the next few days!
"Reminds one of the old adage that a stopped clock is right twice a day."%0D\
Kind of hard to get SPECIFIC gossip right just by guessing. %0D\
We''re supposed to believe someone just happened to guess that NPH was gay, and also guessed that he had a boyfriend named David Burtka? I''d say that''s a sign that someone actually knew something.%0D\
What is the Rick Springfield fucking chicks with dicks gossip? More, please!
 I dont know if Dee has Fully come out, but many believe she has been off and on with Jane Elliot (Tracy Quartermaine- GH) for years. She even went on TV talking about how she does Jane''s "Hair" They sleep over, BFF ect.
R106, You''re right and Gale gives lots of ''hints'' like that in almost every interview he''s done. Ampo
oops "ampo" means nothing -- only that I didn''t finish using the ''delete'' key!
Thanks, R12, if he goes in the next few months, we''ll remember you.
Don''t forget the John Nettles revelations.
[quote]I have plenty of good dirt, but now only post a fraction of it here, sparingly, because it''s wearying and tedious to be attacked by the likes of you.\
R76, why are you even here if it makes you so unhappy? You''re just a stupid liar.
There''s nothing I love more on DL than the John Nettles troll - but so far John Nettles has defied the John Nettles troll and shown absolutely no sign of admitting to being gay/coming out. %0D\
He did talk about leaving Midsomer to spend more time with his ''family''. %0D\
If this place were such a hot source of breaking news and gossip, it would be noted by other gossip sites and media outlets. But this place is totally off the radar, especially in the last few years.%0D\
Most of what is considered original gossip is brought here by someone who read it somewhere else. A lot of people don''t realize it because they don''t get off this board.%0D\
There''s nothing wrong with that, it''s just the truth.
R122. You''re clinically insane. As in batshit.\
Where did I write that coming here made me "unhappy"? I merely said I rarely posted gossip I knew first or second hand here any longer.\
If you want to know the reason why, look in the mirror, you fucking freak.
[quote]Where did I write that coming here made me "unhappy"?\
Your posts seem very unhappy. Perhaps complaining is just happiness to you.
[quote]this place were such a hot source of breaking news and gossip, it would be noted by other gossip sites and media outlets. %0D\
When DL was named in the media as a gossip source, the fraus invaded. People even sent nasty e-mail to one gossip columnist because of her mention of DL.
r128 is right.\
Also, a lot of the good gossip, even relatively recently (Fincher gay claims, Bale sub stuff, various outings) wouldn''t be touched by gossip outlets because it is too incendiary. \
Most outlets now are just PR vehicles for various Hollywood interests. The fact that anything salacious comes out at all has more to do with desperate celebs trying for publicity (Blake Lively pics) or warring celebs throwing enemies overboard (Michael Bay & Megan Fox douchebag/skank war) than someone leaking real unsanctioned gossip.\
I think that''s borne out by the fact that the last 2 good threads were deleted by the WM.
Not sure about DL but on one of the other boards people knew years before who Swoopes was dating (before her reintroduction to het life) and knew way before who Rosie was dating. I can''t remember if reported on DL though.
what other boards, R130?
[quote]Rick Springfield fucking chicks with dicks
We need more info on this one.
An eldergay told me this once (I'm a DOOL fan), so make of it what you will:
Deidre Hall is a lesbian, and she once had a year-long affair with Gloria Loring. She and Alan Thicke are both bi, but actually did care for each other during the marriage.
The DL told me Nate Silver was gay in 2008, I think. O the glamour!
I've been reading the DL off and on for at least a dozen years. I don't have a lot of dirt but I get some once in a while and I post it here if it's interesting. (I spare you the "I just saw Drew Barrymore at Three Pickles shit.)
It doesn't matter when the "Liar Liar!" posters do their thing. They don't know me and I don't take it personally.
It's always been this way here, it's not as if it's anything recent.
R133, I believe it about Robin.
R24, " Mark Foley being a chickenhawk"
Now that's a word I have not heard in a long time, a long time, since oh before you were born.
I heard about Clive Davis liking cock here first. Years ago.
He just came out this week.
Well, he came out as bisexual and was pretty specific about that.
A lot of the political goosip turns out to be true. When will Aaron Schock be outed with a photo, video, or arrest in an airport mens room?
‘Heloise and Abelard’ is one of history’s most passionate and romantic true love stories. The nine hundred year old love affair of the 12th century philosopher and theologian and his student Heloise continues to inspire and move us. Their passionate relationship scandalized the community in which they lived.
In twelfth century Paris, the intellectually gifted young Heloise, the niece of Notre Dame’s Canon Fulbert, strives for knowledge, truth and the answer to the question of human existence. It soon becomes apparent that only one teacher in Paris can provide the education that she seeks. Though twenty years her senior, Abelard quickly becomes intrigued by Heloise’s uncommon wit and intelligence, for Heloise is on par intellectually with Abelard.
They soon find themselves so entwined that neither can resist the spiritual and physical desires of their bodies, yet they both know that the laws of the time forbid such a relationship. But their physical love and the strength of their passion proved to be a power impossible to resist.
When Heloise becomes pregnant, they realize it is not safe for her to remain in Paris. They flee for Brittany, Abelard’s place of birth. In a scheme to protect the dignity of his fallen niece, and return Heloise to his home, Canon Fulbert arranges a secret marriage between Heloise and Abelard. But shortly after the two lovers are wed, they discover Fulbert’s true plot is to ruin Abelard and keep Heloise for himself. For her safety, Heloise escapes to the convent at Argenteuil, but it is too late for Abelard and he is brutally attacked in Paris.
As a result of his humiliating punishment, Abelard no longer considers himself capable of continuing as a teacher at Notre Dame, and he and Heloise understand what they must do. Canon Bedell pleads with Abelard to not force such a fate upon Heloise, but both Heloise and Abelard agree that they must take Holy Orders as Monk and Nun. In a heartbreaking moment, Heloise must give up her child, knowing that she will never see him again.
Through their famous correspondence of twenty years, their love continues to flourish, in spite of their separation. After many years pass, in a chance meeting, Heloise and Abelard are briefly reunited at a ceremony in Paris. Though they have been physically apart all these years, at last in the sight of the other, the former lovers realize that the love they share is the reason for human existence. As the glorious ceremony begins, they triumphantly promise to remain “Forever One”.
They never met again, yet through their famous letters, their love endures.
Six hundred years later, it was Josephine Bonaparte, so moved by their story, the she ordered that the remains of Abelard and Heloise be entombed together at Pére Lachaise cemetery in Paris. To this day, lovers from all over the world visit the tomb where the remains of Heloise and Abelard rest eternally together.
The Maria Bello rumors turned out to be true
The Tom Daley rumours turned out to be true.
Richard Armitage and Lee Pace are a couple. Someone leaked three pics of them with Lee's family.
I've been here more than a dozen years. I seem to recall posters here (this was years ago) who claimed to have finished working on the Mr and Mrs Smith set and said there were heavy rumors amongst the crew that Pitt and Jolie were an item. It was of course heavily pooh-poohed here at the time.
It's too bad the DL archive got destroyed with the various software updates. It only goes back to mid-2010 now I think.
Michelle Rodriguez finally admitted she's dating a girl.
Matt Bomer is a needy bottom turned out to be true.
r133 Diedre Hall being a lesbian is as old as the hills. She used to have a personal assistant who ended up doing gay porn too, his porn name was Mark Saber. (this was 1994ish)
R149, I remember that. When people did believe the story it was only in the context of so many actors hooking up on sets while filming. Wasn't there something about Jennifer Aniston being suspicious and visiting the set? Maybe not.
Someday all the jackoff speculation here about Timberlake and his amazing, insatiable ass will be revealed as truth!
For years I readbout Jim McGreevey being gay on Datalounge. The stories were so outrageous -- parking tickets outside of gay bars, a broken leg while he and a bf were cavorting on a dock...I didn't believe them. Who could be so gay and the press keep it secret? Well, I found out it was all true and the only reason he was outed was because he appointed his Is.rae.li bf, a Mossad plant, as a security director with control over NJ's shipping port and airports
What is the Kate Mara gossip?
R133 Dee Dee Hall supposedly was part of a sex club includling Mary Frann and Mary Hart!? Dee must be bi at least I can't see her sticking to cock.
Years ago, a lot of DL gossip turned out to be true. That's no longer the case with all the good gossipers being chased away by EST and this.did.not.happen trolls. Most people no longer share their gossip here.
The issue is the amount of gossip that has failed to hold up. Look if you shout enough prediction sheer probability will make them true.
I bet I could think of a thousand actors and then search DL and I'd find, at least, one thread about each of the thousand actors, that he claims to be gay or whatever prediction.
It's not anything special, it's just good odds is all.
She tried to enter me.
[R76] Agreed, and my gossip turned out to be true though it was dismissed at the time. I have a subscription so I'll stay until it expires.
R161, there is a difference between saying so-and-so is gay and knowing unique details that are too specific to have been proven true just by coincidence
Anderson Cooper was going to be forced out because of a big scandal. He was smart and "came out" via Milky Loads then fled the country and avoided a lot of embarrassment about his main lover seeing other men.
The gossip about David Burtka dating Simon Halls before NPH.
People said that the dates didn't match up and that NPH wouldn't have gotten Halls as his publicist if it were true. But that gossip turned out to be. It was confirmed on NPH's book.
Scientology blackmailing John Travolta
More importantly, Mariska Hargitay is Jayne Mansfield's daughter! Didn't know that.
Somebody here told us about the Mad Men lawnmower episode before it happened. It was so shocking I thought he was joking.
The Osama raid was also predicted here right before it happened, though it may have been a bit cryptic. Does anyone remember the details better?
The original gossip that David Messerschmitt was trolling for cock. I think we all went there pretty quickly after the murder, but it was confirmed very early on right here at Datalounge.
And the email address provided to the police by one of DM's past lovers could very have broken the case and led to MurderButch's arrest.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
