Oh man, it must be late. My brain combined the first couple posts into something about Chely''s book being banned.
She has usurped Mariska''s crown. I guess Mariska is just going to have to dump Sharon Stone and hook up with Chely.
A good venue for her. All of her celeb friends will show, I''m sure.
Lauren''s been out of the country until very recently. They know each other through their volunteer work. Don''t think they''re dating.
I thought she was taking some kid to the show.
I doubt it, r4.
Some guy uploaded a documentary about Chely on Youtube. Quality isn''t great, but it was interesting. She has really changed over the years.
That little bio was great to see how she''s changed but the parts about her mom and the end of Part 2 was kinda heartbreaking. She''s now estranged from her mom who she calls her hero in the beginning and then the part about not having love or a "person" but having music...Sounded lonely. The gambling was endearing
She doesn''t really need a Part 4 since most of the threads before are filled with bumps and non-conversations (by 3 lesbians over and over).
I keep trying to post url''s herein but the server rejects them.\
Just go to youtube and search for\
Chely Wright ''Path To Stardom'' documentary part 1\
Chely Wright ''Path To Stardom'' documentary part 2\
Chely Wright ''Path To Stardom'' documentary part 3
Same happens to me R17
Thanks R12, because I really was wondering how this nobody, lesbian come lately merited 4 threads. Meanwhile in the real world, I haven''t seen her discussed in the media since the big outing.
I like thinking that it''s bitter C-list celesbians ignored by DL who post on these threads wondering why people post on these threads.
R11 How much do you wanna bet her mom is really gay too?
Interesting tweets between Lauren, Kristin and Chely...is it possible Chely is dating Lauren?
Chely Wright is a D list celesbian. Most C listers wouldn''t care or more likely don''t know this place exists.
So, who else has watched the biography? What are your thoughts?
Think someone was looking for confirmation that Sarah Paulson and Cherry Jones were back together. Here you go...
Interesting r27 plus I noticed Rosie didn''t have a 1.
LOL That guest list is weird. Can''t they list them as individuals and not in pairs by their romantic relationships? It''s like these people are attached by the hip. I''m waiting for the morphing names by next year.
Married straight couples are listed that way, why do you think it''s weird? My friends and I always refer to couples as Chris and Jen or Debbie and Joan.
These are celebrities and most are celebrities in their own right. They could have listed them individually.
The whole idea of the party is to fight for marriage rights. Thus, the coupling.
R22, Chely tweeted just "hi" to Lauren a short while ago. She either reads DL and is totally teasing us, or they are SO doing it. I can''t tell with Chely, especially after the whole Sarah Paulson flirtation even though SP''s with Cherry and the Cheno lovefest even though she''s straight ("allegedly").
well r35, they went to see Promises, Promises together, and KC mentioned how much she enjoyed meeting LB that evening. I''m beginning to think there''s something going on between Chely and LB...
Hey, if she wants to date a 29 y/o, more power to her. I remember her from her AE vlogs. Dreadful.\
Who''s the brave soul who will tweet Chely re: her DL thread?
It''s interesting that Chely, as a country music singer, has come out of the closet. But that''s it. She''s not all that interesting herself.
Well...Chely and Lauren tweeted within an hour of each other about what a beautiful morning it was.....I bet it was.
Chely seems so busy that I don''t think she is dating anyone now. She probably has made some great friends and that is all there is to it.
Right, R38? What can we do on DL to make her more interesting--since I"m sure she read our thread?
OK, so has anyone else figured out that the last woman (Brenda), who we haven''t yet identified, in Chely''s book is probably Susan Bennett (see twitter @SusanBennett220)
Interesting, r43! :)\
If she really is "Brenda"...then she seems awfully proud of her history with Chely, given how she was depicted in the book. But then, maybe she''s just thrilled to finally be able to admit their sexual history.
OK and here is a funny thing (because I''m bored on a Sunday morning)....all the names of the women in C''s book start with the same letter as their real life last name: Julia = CAM who''s maiden name is Jarosinsky (or something like that), Kristin = Kampa, and Brenda = Bennett. Man, I really must be bored!
R43, don''t think Susan is Brenda. Her Facebook profile lists her college as Lenoir%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%93Rhyne University in North Carolina. Didn''t "Brenda" go to Middle Tennessee State like Chely? Susan''s also married... to a man.
So was "Brenda" the sports dept employee that was Chely''s first? Brenda also had a boyfriend at the same time she was dating Chely, didn''t she?\
@SusanBennett220 "@chelywright read your after hours.I''m trying to sit beside you at some point and heal an old wound..I knew you then, let me know you now.??"
I agree, r47, I don''t think SB is "Brenda". \
And r48, according to the book "Brenda" never had a boyfriend. She''d had a girlfriend before Chely, and she dated another girl after Chely. She seems to be the one most OK with being a lesbian in the entire book (but of course she brought the crazy dyke drama instead).
Nah, I think it is her....lots of small details
They wouldn''t be working this out via Twitter.\
*about to play "what is this pill on the bottom of my make-up bag"
I read all threads but I must of missed the one dealing with Kampa? Which one is she and whats her first name?
[quote]Right, [R38]? What can we do on DL to make her more interesting--since I"m sure she read our thread?\
That''s really fucking sad...
Awww...sorry, LB...I mean, R53. Are we talking smack about your girl?
Lauren somebody, I believe it''s on part 3 thread towards the end. She''s in her late 20''s and people think that she might be Chely''s gf.
Looks like Chely and LB might be hooking up in Queens today.
Funny how sure some of you were three weeks ago that Chely and Sarah MUST BE hooking up and flirting like crazy. %0D\
Or two months ago you were SO SURE that Chely would go back to CAM. %0D\
So forgive me for not believing the Lauren Blitzer thing for one second and for finding your "twitter logic" highly amusing
I know it is kind of funny how Chely can''t just be friends with any of these women, she must be hooking up with them. \
She''s newly out, she''s meeting people and getting to know the community. I know most of you don''t understand the closet and how isolating it is so you don''t quite understand how all new this is to Chely. Being able to talk to people openly about things you''ve kept inside. I know how that closet feels so I understand the sense of freedom she has, once the newness wears off then she''ll settle down and that''s when she''ll be ready for a relationship.
Well, obviously hooking up means something different to you. When I wrote "hooking up" I was not implying that they were dating, just meeting one another.
Well I don''t know how old you are but hooking up usually means sexual, so perhaps you are of a different generation.
R59, I only threw Lauren''s name out there as a potential. But curious that LB recently friended Chely''s brother-in-law on Facebook and Chely has also friended LB''s sister Julie. Could be the same Julie she was playing scrabble with the other day...
[quote]Well...Chely and Lauren tweeted within an hour of each other about what a beautiful morning it was.....I bet it was.%0D\
who is LB?
"@chelywright writing u now my sweet girl. I love u."\
Just to clarify, KC is straight, right? Thought so. Damn.
R66, LB is Lauren Blitzer (aka @lulublitzer on Twitter). Seems like her and Chely have been spending a lot of time together lately, including what sounds like dinner last night with LB''s sister.
Here''s an idea: maybe they''re friends!
Two lesbians? Just "friends"? No such thing exist..
since when does a born and breed new yorker start using the word "gals"
R72 could you be a little bit more specific? Who, What, Where, and When?
oh sorry, "lulu" had tweeted about wishing she was having sushi with her "gals"
So Chely posted the following on FB today: \
"Headed home to New York City. Couch, football, dog, snuggling and cole slaw. Yes, that'' what I said, cole slaw. Yummy! Have a good one, everybody! xo c\
Who is she seeing (unless you think she meant she was snuggling with her dog)?
Maybe LB but somehow I don''t think she''d be splashing that all over Twitter if it was real. They are sickeningly cutesie, tho. \
Would be nice if Chely got back to tweeting w/her fans on a somewhat regular basis...and not just 2 people.
Maybe she''s snuggling with the cole slaw?
LB looks like her twin. Maybe they''ll start wearing matching sweatsuits!
Oh lord, I hope not, R78! Sweatsuits do not belong in public!
Well, I think if she''s snuggling with anyone it''s certainly LB.\
I guess she''s giddy like a seventh grader dating for the first time.\
So yes, the twitters seems juvenille but ... you know, guess she has that coming.\
They do look alike.\
I always pictured her with an older, professorly woman.\
She''s probably having fun right now.
Did you see the other day how she twittered to the head of Glsen something about being excited to have lunch with her "friend?"\
Wonder what that woman thinks. She''s probably happy for C but realizes it could all go south fast and get messy, maybe.
Or just uninterested. There''s a big wide-open space btw. 29 & 40.
Heh--Chely''s tweeting up a storm. Wonder why, DLers?
is this true?
Apparently LB is "feeling very happy right now!" I wonder why?
This love affair is boring me already.
I''m guessing Chely is getting her cooter licked pretty good.
If Chely and Lauren are an item, I''d personally love to see a home video of them in action.
How old are you, R87/R88? My god--like I''m in a room full of horny 14 yr old boys. "Cooter"?\
Mamaseeta''s gonna kick your ass!\
Thread 4 = never should have happened.
It seems that Ms. Blitzer has quite a dating history. Numerous hook ups and one night stands. She wrote a book about her adventures. Same Sex In The City. I''d be surprised if Chely is anything more than friends with her.
Chely Wright deserves to be happy. She is a hero. She has saved thousands of lives, including mine. I hope she and Lauren are girlfriends and I wish them well.
You saved your own life. She just helped call it out in you.
I think anyone who is starting a new relationship, and isn''t quite sure where they stand with the other person-- or what is happening, because it''s all new... isn''t really ready to make an big "announcement," whether they are straight or gay, public persona, or private etc.\
Will be interesting to see over time if/how this "comes out" in one way or another. \
I guess for people who seem to care, she''s given enough clues on Twitter.\
I''m sure there is plenty left with can "detective" out
Maybe she''ll take her on the lesbian love boat cruise...\
I still don''t buy that they''re together.
Chely and Lauren were keeping quiet on Twitter for a few days but they''re back at it again.\
@lulublitzer Thank for asking, Lulu. The Indigo Girls'' Holiday record will be released on October 12th, 2010. I''m SUPER thrilled! xo c\
@Tweeterboro @lulublitzer -That''s why the Indigo Girls are releasing their record on that date. To celebrate YOUR day of birth! All for you\
Surprise! They love the Indigo Girls!\
They''re a couple. Mark my word.
Nah. And that reply was to Tweeterboro.\
And if so, how long will it last? Place your bets.
I do believe Chely and Sarah were flirting and something happened that Sarah got cold feet. All of the sudden she''s leaving twitter and suddenly she''s back with Cherry. They had names for each other Chely is DL and Sarah is SC and suddenly they don''t twit each other anymore. Makes you go hmmm, what happened there?
"The Indigo Girls'' Holiday record"%0D\
Haven''t they just released a double livealbum? How many IG records can the market absorb?
Let''s check the photos from the Clinton event last night. If Chely took Lauren, they''re a couple! \
Someone start digging.\
We''ve got to know if Chely had a date last night.
isn''t that christmas song the one she wrote with Mindy Smith, that Mindy Smith recorded?
It seems Chely deleated all her favorite "tweets" under the favorite tab on Twitter, except one from "Lulu"
I read the twits and the difference is that with Sarah Chley seemed giddy, flusterd, and excited. With Lulu is more of a hi you are nice. Something happened that all of a sudden Chely and Sarah don''t twit anymore they both seemed like they could not wait for the other to twit. If I was Lauren I would be questioning that, of course, that''s if Chely and Lauren are dating.
I am still wondering who Chely twitted the following: Do I have a CHANGE? Did not show who she was twitting that to, but it was the time when she was twitting Sarah almost everyday.
I like her interviews better than I like her music.
R105, I totally agree.
She''d do very well as a GLBT speaker--it could be her new career.
Change or Chance? I''m assuming you meant chance? That would be interesting to know.
CHANCE. But she put quotation marks around the whole thing too... wonder who she was quoting.\
if you saw the replies after, if i recall, it was a quote from some movie "dumb and dumber". she was happy that one person "got" it.
It seemed with SP she was flaunty in the way she talks with Linda Perry and Kristen Chenoweth. Like that whole "celesbian" public thing: strength in numbers, or whatever. Entertaining for sure, but ... real?\
Think the biggest clues that she is with LB is that when LB came back from italy C tweeted a big ":)" then started quoting the lyrics to "unknown" then the next day she said she left her umbrella somewhere and LB said "one woman''s lost umbrella is another woman''s found one"\
yeah, it''s sounds chit-chatty with LB but i''m sure C must be a dork at heart, in the best possibly way, so probably the more comfortable she feels with someone, the more this side would come out
Didn''t she just break up w/Ash?
Hmm... "love is a good thing. just sayin''"? Sounds like someone is in love to me.
Maybe so...maybe not. Maybe. Doesn''t LB look like she''s wearing a wedding ring in her Twit photo? Maybe LB''s gotta girl--and Chely''s w/an unnamed woman.\
Seriously--do you really think LB & C are going to talk thru Twitter rather than just email/IM/call if they''re dating? Not that they say anything interesting, anyway...but why bother?\
I wish she''d date crazy Sarah (if she wasn''t w/the Queen of the stage)--at least it would give us something to write about!
I agree if she was dating LB they would email/call instead of twitting each other. I think this rumor that Sarah is back with Cherry is false. Wasn''t Sarah mad at some thing in the NY York times last week that was false. Maybe I am wrong but I think Chely and Sarah are together that''s why they stop twitting each other they could still be communicating, but through Phone or email instead. We will find out soon who is with whom, hope all of them are happy. :)
R115, see R27 regarding Sarah and Cherry.
Can''t find it now, but didn''t someone post about Sarah calling Chely DB. If my memory is correct that stands for Dillybar, which Kristin also calls her. So, it seems to be a affectionate nickname for Chely between her friends.
I''m surprised no one has posted this gem from LB:\
@chelywright - next time - mozzarella, tomato, olives, crackers and your smile. That''s a picnic.
Read it--just didn''t post it. Whoever is going to the Joe''s Pub show, you''ll see who''s in her entourage. Report back.
Did anyone else notice that Chely wrote:\
Love is a good thing\
on her Twitter last night? \
Hello? Then she wrote xoxo to Kristin Chenoweth. Is she converting the Broadway Diva to the other team? \
Chely is still Tweeting with Lauren pretty regularly though and their Tweets are flirty. Stay tuned. Our Chely is in love, but who is it?
Yes, we all saw this Tweet from @lulublitzer. \
"@chelywright - next time - mozzarella, tomato, olives, crackers and your smile. That''s a picnic."\
They''re girlfriends, Chely and Lauren. I have an inside source. \
They''re a HOTTTTT couple.
They look like twins. And I''m sorry, but LB seems a girl compared to C''s woman.\
But hey, hot is as hot does.
i bet you LB gave CW the scarf she''s wearing in those gulf fotos.\
it''s kind of warm for a scarf even if you have been sick, and scarves seem to be a favorite topic of Ms. Blitzer.\
LB does seem young for sure, though i suppose CW feels young.
Agree with R122 that they look like twins! And yes, LB seems young for her, but wasn''t "Kristin" also much younger than Chely, bordering on immature? So she has a history of going for younger...\
R121, "inside source," huh? Sorry, not sure I''m gonna be able to take your word for it.
Well, Chely should have some fun...what the hell. It''s like she''s in dyke junior high!\
R121 is prob. LB.
listening to mary gauthier "mercy now" while drinking is way better than any therapy i''ve ever paid for. god bless fucked up songwriters
She doesn''t seem to be twitting much with anyone in particular. She''s probably taking a cue from Sarah and twitting less about your life. I just don''t buy that Lauren and Chely are together or the Chely and Sarah pairing. I think they are all just friends. The only thing I question is how suddenly the twitting between Chely and Sarah stopped. What''s going on there.
People just assumed that C & SP were together b/c they didn''t know Cherry--or their relationship. SP is totally crazy over Cherry--even tho they broke up (see earlier DL thread).\
C is prob. reading the DL thread & not writing much! Too bad--I liked reading her tweets. And it''s not that hard to tweet your fans, rather than just LB.
This doesn''t make any sense. Why would Chely date someone so young? Lauren is not even out of her 20''s. Chely is a mature woman, she wouldn''t be messing around with a 20-something girl. They''re just friends, believe me. Lauren is pretty, but not Chely''s type. Chely will end up with someone more her age.
There''s only a 11 year difference which isn''t much.
I know she''s posting as Snowflake, her dog, but her last tweet to Lulu "I wish you would hurry up and finish your day" sure sounds like someone wants her girlfriend to come home.
They''re totally dating. Lulu even has a nickname for the dog. \
"@chelywright happy birthday little snow shoe. You look 4."
what''s exciting to me tonight is washing a 35 year old handmade quilt for the first time. and the food network. i''m nervous of outcome \
if that quilt could talk.... there''d be lots of therapy needed and maybe a lawsuit. thank god for gain. it''s a fresh start.
what WOULD the quilt say?
So happy to see that Chely is finding love. She deserves it! \
And it is true that she and Lauren sort of look alike. LOL
"Chely is a mature woman"\
All these tweets, etc. don''t seem to be showing much maturity!
Hey, much love to Chely--but 11 yrs & a Saturn return? No thanks.\
She better be good to my future wife.
Trouble in paradise. @lulublitzer is feeling less than. \
Maybe Chely and Lauren are having a lover''s quarrell?\
According to 132 Chely and Lauren are dating because Lauren has a nickname for Chely''s dog. If that''s the case then Chley is dating KChenoweth because K also has a nickname for snowflake. I love how people read a lot into Chely''s twits. To me they seemed innocent. If and when Chely gets a girlfriend believe she will be private about it.
How can two people twit like crazy for about 4 weeks and suddenly stop? Something happened. If it''s true that Cherry and Sarah are back maybe Cherry told Sarah to end it. If I was Cherry and Sarah was flirt twitting with someone hotter, I would not be happy about it. Funny how Chely would not answer Lauren twits while twitting with Sarah. It seems that Chely realized that Sarah was still hung up on Cherry and realized that for now there was no future there. My take.
[quote] How can two people twit like crazy for about 4 weeks and suddenly stop? Something happened.\
The Afterellen article happened. And that creeped them out. Nothing else.
r137, it''s probably a response to DADT.
Why would they get creeped out? Obviously \
Twitter is a public forum. Ridiculous. \
Celebrities want press, go on Twitter & then \
bitch about it!
FIrst Chely and Stephanie Miller. Then Chely and Kristin Chenoweth. Then Chely and Sarah Paulson. Then Chely and Lauren Blitzer. Chely gets more action than the slots in vegas! \
Go Chely! Get it. Just please tell us about it.
1 out of 4, R143. She wasn''t with the rest--and I still don''t believe she''s with LB.
I love how the folks on this thread are putting their own spin on what Chely''s life is like based on her Tweets. Sometime a Tweet is just a Tweet. It makes me remember the times when I''ve had my own projections about things and been so certain I knew wtf I was talking about - only to be proven WRONGWRONGWRONG in the end. It''s only fun, I realize - but a lesson none the less. \
I wonder if it is really true that SP cheated on Cherry with JM. Then Cherry says she is so happy not to be in a relationship - and then gets back into one. That relationship is so curious to me. I have been on the fringe of their circle in New York and I''m not the only person who shakes their head at them - I just hope CJ is happy.
I like you 145. You''ve got a good head on your shoulders. You''re right. Sometimes a Tweet is just a Tweet. \
We should all stay out of it. \
BUT: my best friend works at Starbuck''s in Brooklyn and she says that Chely and Lauren are there together almost every day. And they''re very affectionate. Holding hands, kisses, etc. \
But still, whose business is it anyway?\
I wouldn''t know Chely Wright if she bit me and don''t care to. Nothing personal - I just don''t care. When she came out Dlisted quoted the Color Purple "Harpo - who dis woman?" - and that holds for me to this day.\
Cherry is another matter. She is none of my business, but I am inspired by her and love her as someone whose development I have followed over the years. Any contact I have had with her has always been lovely and she is very sexy to me.
That''s funny - having the inside scoop at Starbucks. They could be having sex on my doorstep and I wouldn''t know who they are....
I''m calling BULLSHIT on R147. You wouldn''t know who Chely Wright was if she bit you? BULLSHIT! You''re on a Chely Wright thread on DataLounge. She''s been on Oprah Winfrey, Ellen Degeneres, CNN, MSNBC, People Magazine, The Advocate, this list goes on and on. You''re clearly a follower of some things LGBT and Chely''s story was the biggest LGBT story of 2010 and you''re claiming that you wouldn''t know her if she bit you? She''s breaking stereotypes left and right in the gay community and she certainly doesn''t just blend in with every other out lesbian. You know who she is. Don''t be coy, r147. LOL! Okay. Just had to get that out of the way. But I''ll have to agree with you. Cherry Jones is a fascinating woman and sexy in her way as well. Brilliant actor and pioneer!
I do not own a tv - and I do not read The Advocate. I am aware of her - but I have not read her story. Right now, she does not interest me. Perhaps I''ll hear a song of hers at some point and become interested. She could walk past me and I would have no idea. Honest to God.\
I came to this thread because of SP Tweeting with her.
I''m with r147 on this one. I too wouldn''t have any idea who this woman is, if she was standing right before me. \
Honestly, the only place I have seen her mentioned is here on DL. Its great that she came out but she isn''t a major celebrity overall or even in the gay community. The major (gay) celebs are Ellen, Jodie, Rosie, Melissa, Cherry, Portia etc. Can you really put her in with them?\
I, for one, come to this thread, not because I really care about Chely but because I find some of you fascinating/hysterical, especially posters like r143. So silly, talk about living through someone.
Just being honest
Chely lives on the UES, R146. WTF would she be doing in Brooklyn?
I was considering reading her book because K. Chenoweth likes her so much. KC is not gay to my knowledge - but I have worked with her and respect her as a talent and someone who has made some mistakes and learned from them.
LB moved to DUMBO in August. \
Looks like someone is having sleepovers.
Okay r151, the only place you''ve seen Chely mentioned is on DL? That''s freaking hilarious. You, too, are on a Chely Wright thread! LOL!\
She was on the cover of Curve magazine, she''s all over AfterEllen, was ON Ellen''s show, Rosie''s show, Oprah, the biggest gay story of the year and DataLounge is the only place you''ve seen her mentioned. Okay, right! Ha ha! \
And yes, you CAN put her in with the major gay celebs. She was, at least at one time, one of the biggest stars in country music. And SHE CAME OUT! She was named one of People Magazine''s 50 Most Beautiful People in the world, at one point. (I think) Look, I am not a country fan at all, but I''m just saying, I think it''s funny when people pretend like, "oh, who is Chely Wright". She just happens to be one of the most important public gays of our time, it seems to me. She''s sure is doing a lot to bring awareness and seems to be pretty freaking smart. I like her representing us better than Lindsay Lohan.
I''ll read KC Twambian tweets anytime--way more entertaining than C tweets.\
So, Chely''s getting some. Wonder how long it''s been since she broke up w/Ash? Didn''t Ash just delete her dogs pics/FB info?\
Won''t be long before they''re wearing matching sweatshirts. God. Lesbian twins irritate me.
R152, what is the UES?
Just in case anyone is wondering what DUMBO is, it''s an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, which = Brooklyn. It''s LB that lives in Brooklyn, not CW.
Wonder if Chely will bring her to OutFest & the gay cruise...\
How long do we think this love affair is going to last, girls?
All those apprentices came on the heels of her coming out. We are not talking about someone as famous as Jodie, Ellen, Rosie, Portia etc. Please, these women are way way more famous then Chely. Serious, come on now! \
As a country music star, maybe she was super famous ala Faith Hill or whatever (I never heard of her). To the gay community she''s the ''famous out country music star''. To the rest of the public (non-country), I''m pretty sure they don''t know her by name. Clearly your a big fan of her and I don''t mean to belittle your current favorite celebrity but as I said, on a regular basis, DL is the ONLY place I''ve seen her mention regularly.\
Also, I''ve already explained to you why I''m on this thread. Mostly, because I find people like you hilarious to read.
Have to agree w/you, R161. No one I know has ever heard of Chely, nor is she in the press very often. Hell, I never heard of her before May! She not a name-brand dyke. That may change if she becomes more outspoken re: issues like DADT. I''ve said it before, but she''d make a fabulous GLBT speaker--rather than trying to string together a tour.\
The only way you''ll really hear of Chely is on Twit/FB--and that''s if you look for her.
Anyone who listened to Country music pre-Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift/Carrie Underwood knows who Chely is. She''s not Faith/Shania but she has always been well known and respected in the country industry with her super fame being between ''97-''02. She''s a red state celebrity which is why many in the gay community have never heard of her. This is why her coming out matters. Not for the West Coast/NE crowd where being gay is more acceptable. It matters for the people in the mid west/south who think country music is their conservative/christian/hetero island.
good point, r 163. i had never heard of her until dlisted ran the spoiler that she was the "celeb" coming out on may 5th that everyone speculated was Queen Latifah. i was like - "WHO?!" seriously - not a clue.
You know what''s funny, the I don''t know who Chley is I just came here because I find some of you fascinating/hysterical. Yeah,whatever! My friend who works at Barneys says that Chely and Lauren are there together almost every day. And they''re very affectionate. Holding hands, kisses, etc. :)
I guess Afterellen''s article really annoyed Sarah. Who is Ash?
How old are you r165? Just curious.
Amazes me that there are two people that have best friends that work at Starbucks or Barneys that post on here. I don''t know if she is dating anyone or not. I will agree with some of the posters that I had never heard of her before the great reveal of May 5. I would also say that if she were standing next to me I would not recognize her. If you think she is the poster child of the gay movement you need to do a lot of homework. She can claim all she wants that it will affect her singing career, but the fact of the matter is that her career was dead many years ago. Fawn all over her if you want, but she is not nor ever will be the voice of the gay movement to me.
Okay, now I call bullshit on R165 and the Starbucks poster (same person, same lines). Yeah, I''m sure they shop at Barney''s every day. \
They''re prob. not even dating, unless R165 is LB.\
I''m glad Chely is another voice in the gay movement and yes, R163, you make a very good point. The more gay, the better. The hotter, the better.
[quote]My friend who works at Barneys says that Chely and Lauren are there together almost every day. And they''re very affectionate. Holding hands, kisses, etc. :)\
First Starbucks, now Barneys? And at R129 you said that you don''t believe that they are dating.\
Plus you''re going off at anyone who doesn''t "love" Chely as much as you do. You''re a troll, and not a good one.
Ok so now all ya need is this starbucks employee to get the survelliance video. then things will really be good.
What are Scorpio and Taurus like, any of your horoscope sages?
Water & Earth. Lots of sex. Lots of $$. Not the greatest compatibility. Taurus too stubborn, Scorpio too deep & irritating for Taurus''s practical nature. Both possessive. Scorpio is a drama queen. Not much air/space.\
I''d say this pairing is a hot, quick, passionate love affair based on the signs.
Thanks for the horoscope slant\
Sounds like at least they are having fun right now.\
Hopefully it won''t get too messy.\
Though from what you wrote , sounds intense
Depends on how much 2 people are evolved / evolving. The signs are just one aspect--plus, you''d need to look at their rising & moon for a fuller pic.\
My guess is that Chely''s gonna have her fun and then end up w/a mature woman she''ll marry. Prob. another Scorpio or Water sign. If she wanted to really stretch, date an Air sign. Fire would just be battle after battle, and Earth are just boring (j/k).\
And there are your stars for today. Next time, you''re gonna pay me.
[quote]Thanks for the horoscope slant\
Sounds like at least they are having fun right now. Hopefully it won''t get too messy. Though from what you wrote , sounds intense\
So we think Chely and Lauren are having alot of sex right now. They''re both pretty femme. Who''s the top and who''s the bottom in this relationship? Who wears the strap on? \
I''m not the only one who wants to know, come on!
What''s your sign, R176?
Hi. We don''t know anything about those two people. Hitler was a Taurus. I doubt he had a lot of hot sex, or he wouldn''t have been so insanely pissed off.
Doesn''t surprise me. Taurus men are strong leaders but can be corrupted by their power.\
It''s not so one-dimensional. And no shit that we don''t know anything, Sherlock. That''s why we''re on DL!
165 here, I was making fun of the poster who said LB and CW were seen at Starbucks being very affectionate. Holding hands, kisses, etc. Come on, I don''t think Chely and Lauren would be that affectionate in public. Anyone can make up stories on the net, don''t believe them. 169, hell I wished I was LB. It would mean I would be with Chely right now. :)
I think is great that Chely is enjoying herself with Lauren, good for her. Saying that I do believe if Sarah was avaliable, Lauren would not stand a chance. My opinion
All of this speculation is nuts.
This is nuts? Were you ever on a chalupa thread? This thread is sober by comparison.
What makes it nuts are some of the posts by a few. They sound like a teenager wrote them.
This is DL, R185. Were you expecting philosophical musings? What exactly are you adding to the pot, other than saying, "nuts"?
Interesting Twitter exchange today:\
LB @chelywright you''re a good lady.\
CW @lulublitzer takes one to know one. I miss you. Xo\
Cute. But if they ARE dating, begs the question why isn''t LB with Chely at her event? Instead, LB tweets "Saturday just turned from quiet to busy! In a good way. Fairway, ikea, cooking and cleaning."
R187, I thought the same thing.
who was Kristen in her book? I missed the post where it was mentioned. \
I know that Julie is CAM.
R189, Check thread #3--around the midpoint.
I can''t seem to figure out how to access part 3.\
Does anyone know the link or how to get to it?
Kristen is Lori Kampa. Radio promotion person at Dualtone Records.\
She was at the baseball game with Chely where religious material was given to them.\
Also, Lori worked for Ricky Skaggs, which Chely mentions in her book.
All her girlfriends look alike.
Is it my imagination, or had Lulu tweeted something to KChenoweth about being excited to see her tomorrow (on Friday). I forget what it was but i got the impression they''d all be doing something together on Saturday, but I don''t see it now. \
Is anyone with me?
OK don''t be mad I know who CAM is but just wondering if mamaseeta1 had ever written anything that could remotely have been interpreted to be about Chely? aside from the squirrel and gun thing which i''m assuming was not ;)
I remember reading something mamaseeta wrote that could be construed as a dig to Chely.
Do you remember specifically what it was?
I liked the thing she wrote about getting the stench of cigarettes and bitterness out of her hair, back around when Chely came out.
Sorry R198, I don''t remember.
Ha--we have R196 well-trained.
And since you summoned Mama:\
how come when we get to where we always wanted to be all we can think about is where we were when we wanted it?\
today i struggled with my dream of a simple safe life and the stark reality of a gay man forcing me to be the designer label whore that i am
Since the Afterellen article, not much twitting from Chely or Sarah. I think Lauren seems like a nice young lady, but I think she will end up gettting hurt.
Lauren is not going to be hurt. Chely spent a few years on her coming out so she knows a lot of people in the gay community in New York. If she was going to be involved with Lauren it would have happened years ago. I think they are just really good friends and they share a lot with one another. BTW, is Chelsea in Manhattan? I ask this because someone said Chely lives in Manhattan and everything I have read is that she lives in Chelsea.
[quote]BTW, is Chelsea in Manhattan? I ask this because someone said Chely lives in Manhattan and everything I have read is that she lives in Chelsea.\
Chelsea is in Manhattan. The gay district. Everyone who is anyone lives in Manhattan. NYC is where the cool kids live.
Thank you R205.
Oh, that''s such bullshit, r205. Brooklyn has its share of interesting personalities.
She used to live in Chelsea. She lives on the UES now.
i''m sorry, anyone who can''t see that Chely clearly has something for or with Lauren is not very perceptive. it seems plain as day. as we''ve all seen, Chely is an emotionally open person. not that she is going to be writing "i am dating so and so" on her facebook wall, but she''s made it pretty clear she has love and is writing love songs and is snuggling with someone, and seems to have an intimacy, even in her short tweets, with Lauren. can we all accept that and just move on with the finer points...
What did the Afterellen article say that stopped the twitting?
Go to afterellen.com look under music and then under chely wright and its the when celesbians flirt er talk on twitter. Its nothing really. Sarah paulson is possibly just super duper sensitive
Apparently this interview goes into more detail they her book.
Saw some photos of Chely on her FB page that a fan posted from this weekend''s Braking The Cycle event in NYC. Damn, she is getting way too skinny! I know she''s always been thin, but she appears to have lost more weight, and I think it ages her. Just hope that Chely is taking care of herself.
[quote]Should have been ''then''.\
Ha, try again.
Thanks r211 for the info and r212 for the link to another interview.
I know Chely lives in NYC and that''s all I need to know. Wanting to know where exactly she lives seems too stalkery. Some don''t want to believe she''s dating Lauren, there''s nothing wrong with that. Why get so offended?
Yes R215, it should have been ''than.'' Glad to see you have nothing better to do than be the grammar queen. Next time why don''t you post something constructive to the thread.
Sounds like Lulu broke Chely''s dryer? Has someone been playing house?
Agreed, R214. I wonder if she has an illness like Crohn''s? Gf needs to put on some pounds.
Sarah tweeted Chely today, well she just wrote DL! no response from Chley.
Don''t know the twitter lingo, but I am sure that DL does not mean datalounge.
Chely just referred to LB as a "good lady" on twitter. Doesn''t sound very much like they''re in a romantic relationship
Yes but she writes "I miss you" to her, and Lulu writes C''s friends saying she''s sorry she can''t meet them. And Lulu wants to have a picnic with Chely''s smile.
Well, sources say that Chely arrived SOLO at the GLAAD Awards in NYC last night. Walked the red carpet alone, mingled backstage alone left in a black town car alone. Doesn''t sound like a woman with a girlfriend to me. I think we have our answer. Chely and Lauren are just Twitter friends. I knew it!
Just because she arrived solo doesn''t mean she is not dating someone.
Chely would not put her love life on twitter. That''s why I don''t think she''s dating Lauren. It would be great if they were, but it does feel more like a friendship than love. 224, Chely also twits to Kristin Chenoweth, I miss you and we know they are not dating.
Chely is going to be on Larry King on Monday.
Thanks r228 for posting that, I''ll set up my DVR for it.
Larry King better ask her whose muff she''s munching.
R230, how old are you? Get a life. She is going to be talking about the recent suicides of 5 gay people within the last 3 weeks. Watch it, maybe you will get an education of the struggles and prejudices that we have endured for many years.
r231 chill out, have you been reading this thread? Thread killer.
I agree with 231, grow up!
I was listening to podcasts of Stephanie Miller and I just caught something one of the others said about Stephanie moving to NY, I wonder if she and Chely are an item and we are ignoring that possibility?\
This whole thread is about wondering who Stephanie is dating and you came on here specifically to tell us to grow up, how about you leave.
R234, I think you are on the wrong thread. This is about Chely Wright. It is not necessarily about who she is dating. I think because of the recent events of young kids committing suicide that it would be obvious why she would be on Larry King. Stephanie Miller, as of yet, is not scheduled to be on Kings show. It will be Chely and Kathy Griffin. I am very grown up thank you. I think the topic of young kids committing suicide is a lot more important than who Chely is sleeping with. Thanks for your insightful post.
Other threads are talking about the suicides or start your own, don''t hijack some one else''s thread. It''s so important to you get off this thread and join a suicide hot line and help the troubled youth.
R236, I think you need to seek help for your anger problems and lack of reading comprehension.
[R234], Stephanie Miller just move to LA from NY this past summer. Now you''re saying that she''s moving back to NY?
The above post was meant as a reply to 234 not to 236.
R238, I thought the same thing.
[quote]She is going to be talking about the recent suicides of 5 gay people\
Oh, I can just imagine the blubber fest. Watch she''ll probably say she thought about suicide as well. Waaa. She''s such a publicity hound.
"In the car with the fun girls. Lulu is a sub par driver today. But her hair looks pretty."
Thanks 238 for getting the thread back on track, I know she just moved back because the show was being taped from both coasts and I believe they stopped doing that and that''s why she moved back to LA. \
What I''m wondering is if she''s decided to, but probably not, to move back to NY to be with Chely or maybe Chely might decide to move here?
241,why so mad? I don''t think Chely will be moving to LA. I think she said she likes LA, but prefers NY. I don''t think Chely is really dating anyone right now. She''s just having fun.
Started listening to the Stephanie Miller show that is one funny show. Stephanie is really funny.
I like the Stephanie Miller show too r245, started listening to it again, I stopped for a while, can''t even remember why. \
I agree r244 on all counts.
Attitudes like 241 is the reason people stay in the closet. 241, is probably one of those homophobes who goes on gay sites just to spew hate.%0D\
Back to what this thread is about! I agree, it seems likes Chely is just enjoying herself, nothing serious with anyone. Sayng that, I still believe that if Sarah was interested it would be a different story.
I wondered why Sarah was photographed with her best friend Amanda Peet at the premiere of Cherry''s new play, but not with Cherry?
They are probably trying to keep it quiet, but if you go to Sarah''s twitter you can tell Cherry and Sarah are together. Sarah and Chely would have been hot together:)
Well now that Larry King show is over she(her team) just posted on her twitter page a link to her new website: likeme.org.%0D
Agree with r241. As a casual observer and not a fanatic, it seems that she only comes out around the time where she can get some publicity, even if it has nothing to do with her.
Chely s the national spokesperson for GLSEN - the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. \
Their purpose stated from their website is "GLSEN is the leading national education organization focused on ensuring safe schools for all students. Established in 1990, GLSEN envisions a world in which every child learns to respect and accept all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. GLSEN seeks to develop school climates where difference is valued for the positive contribution it makes to creating a more vibrant and diverse community."\
Kind of makes sense she would talk about bullying and the recent suicides of five teens bullied for being gay. As national spokesperson, it is her job to seek publicity about her organization, even though it is not all about her. \
Get a life and grow up.
R252, thank you. I tried to say what you said, but you said it a hell of a lot better.
I''ve always said that she''d make a fabulous GLBT speaker--rather than trying to resurrect her career.
I heard from my friend in new york that Chely is one hundred percent dating LB and it''s very serious. They spend all their free time together, and it is the main reason why C''s sister came to visit was to meet LB in person. I wonder why they don''t go to events together maybe because LB works for the organization that Chely works for too
There was a remark on I believe Ted Casablanca''s page once about Lesbian beards, meaning a Lesbian relationship that was actually hiding another Lesbian relationship, he said yes it happens and I remember wondering then who it might be. I think it''s Sarah and Amanda Peet and Cherry was there to beard for them.
Wonder who''s bringing the U-Haul, R255?\
I give it 6 months. Anyone care to toss in their bet? (and please don''t chastise me w/dyke guilt--)
I give it longer than 6 mo''s. Simply because C''s not a flake. I''d say this will last at least a year, until C meets someone closer to her age/sophistication. Just think of her 2007-2009 video blogs when she was so heavy-hearted and looked like she could barely stand up. Our Fabulous Spokesperson deserves a little affection...%0D\
She was w/Mindy Smith during those blogs...and possibly Ash.
Just left NBC studios. In car, headed to Brooklyn to have dinner with my gals. Xo c\
R260, this stumped me, but I think I know what it''s about. Her friend Shelly Fairchild is in town and is singing with Trace Adkins on Jimmy Fallon''s show tonight. Chely must''ve gone with her to the taping at NBC Studios. "My gals" is probably in reference to Shelly and some other friends she''s with. I think Lulu is traveling (tweets today "at Newark" / "wheels down") - probably LA since the GLSEN awards are there Friday.
Yes, 261, that''s what I thought about when I read that tweet. I give this relationship till February. Lauren will end up getting hurt. It seems like she''s more into the relationship than Chely. I still think Chely is way into Sarah, but Cherry is in the picture.
She''s doing a shity job at being spokesperson, if people don''t know about it.
anybody know what Blitzer''s back story is?
Does your friend work at Starbucks?%0D\
You''re full of shit and you know it. Even if they are dating, I don''t believe any word you are posting.%0D\
C''s time is spent with LB. Sarah is nowhere. Proximity. Some pictures from the GLSEN event this week will give us a coy peek of the couple maybe?
r263 I never heard of it until Chely started as spokesperson.
I still have no clue what LikeMe is about. Is like it GLSEN? The "It Gets Better" campaign? Green t-shirts?\
Chely''s headed to LA. Betcha she brings LB to the awards. The twins are about to go public. And if not, I call bullshit on them dating.
The LikeMe campaign is... ambiguous at best. Maybe they could affiliate with the ''It Gets Better'' project? I guess anything that brings attention and help to struggling LGBT youth is a good thing...
it''s funny i was watching the LB episodes of "she said what" on youtube (there are about six) and in one episode there is a director being interviewed and she said the phrase in french for "love at first sight" literally translates to "hit by lightning". guess we know now where C''s "hit by lightning" tweet came from.
LB makes a brief background cameo in this LA local news piece on Chely and GLSEN. Just before the 2 minute mark.
i bet they won''t walk the red carpet together b/c it would be a "conflict of interest" with GLSEN.\
LB looks like she could have been a popular girl in high school who i would have been intimidated by (or wouldn''t want to get on the wrong side of)
They sure like their scarfs don''t they? They''re a cute couple, but it makes C look kinda Cougar-ish. That''s the only thing that doesn''t fit. Oh well, she''s happy....
i was totally going to comment on the scarf thing.\
this will be chely''s "Scarf Period."
I''m not seeing it, girls. Sorry.
Chely is going with Linda Perry.
Why the down-low stuff? Just go w/your girl, if she''s your girl.
R276, isn''t Linda Perry still with Clementine? Stephanie Miller also said on her show that she was going with Chely and Chely was even inviting Hal Sparks saying she had an extra ticket.\
I think this is a working event for LB anyway so she probably won''t be seen much with Chely.
I''m sure Chely and Linda are going as friends (though Linda certainly was heavier with the Twitter flirtations). If we see LB with C (besides the scarf cameo) it will most likely be if they go out elsewhere, like out with the real L word women. not at the glsen event.
Linda has been with Clementine Ford for a while now.
Some might have thought I meant Chely was going with Linda as a date. I know they are just going as friends.
Yeah--we knew that. I just don''t understand why Chely doesn''t go w/her supposed gf. How is it a conflict of interest?
Well, I guess that''s what we are all wondering.\
Maybe because she is GLSEN''s national spokesperson it doesn''t look professional to be dating someone within the organization (sure it''s not that big) either to the people who work there, or to the public. Because maybe people would think that if they break up or have issues, is it realistic to think she will push forward with all the work for them. \
Or maybe she is just getting used to this being out and dating someone and she''s not quite ready to submit herself or LB to public scrutiny.
linda perry put a pic up of the two of them. the first time i''ve seen chely''s hair straight for an event, and first time she looks more LA/NYC than southern. she looks pretty
I think it''s the latter, R283. She''s used to being hidden.
LP and C look great together. Now there''s a yin/yang power couple (I know, I know--LP is w/Clem).\
LB is just her pretty lil'' thang. Chely is in dyke school right now--j.h. level.
I always think Chely looks better with her hair straighter rather than all done up and teased or curled or whatever it is she often does to it.%0D\
Perhaps her and LB aren''t really an item. How is it that with all the publicity Chely''s had there isn''t even one photo of them together walking in NY or Brooklyn or at Starbucks where a few people have claimed to see them. It''s hard to tell from the tweets because Chely says "I love you" and "I miss you" to several celebs that she tweets. She seems to overuse those words a little.%0D
LB and CW are on Twitter all the time, so why doesn''t someone ask them if they are together and see if they respond?
They are together. Why do they have to annouce it to everyone? Lauren was in charge of the guest at last night''s GLSEN awards, so she was to busy to walk the red carpet. If you guys want pictures of them so badly than become a stalker and follow them. :)
They don''t have to announce it, but they seem like they''re hiding it.
Agreed, no need to announce. (I read also that her friends have told her to "keep a little for yourself") Or I can also see her blurting it out at an upcoming concert in a rowdy I-don''t-give-a-shit moment. Like maybe one of her NYC shows....
No pic, R289. They''re not that interesting.\
Besides, do we really think that this one''s a keeper? Chely''s just doing her thing, (so says my friend at Starfucks.)
What does your other friend at Coffee Bean say? That''s the only way people can really know!
Friend sent me a message from Chely''s in store in San Diego. C was asked if she is seeing someone and she said that she is. If not LuLu, who?
"She''s not ready to submit herself or LB to public scrutiny"\
In that case, should she have remained closeted until she was "ready"?
of course it''s lulu.\
would y''all care to expand at all -- why does your starbucks friend have that impression, and did C say anything else at the in store about her relationship?\
and most importantly: was she wearing a scarf?
Was Lauren there at San Diego with her? Why do they have to be so public about it maybe they want to see how things go first. I still think Chely was way into Sarah you could tell by the tweets, but Sarah still is with Cherry. Have Linda Perry and Clemantine Ford broken up? It seems that Linda is attending functions alone.
Chely''s birthday on Tuesday, maybe Lauren will give her a surprise party.
Lauren better get used to the following:%0D\
-Chely can do better%0D\
-Lauren is to young for Chely%0D\
-Is that why Chely was chosen as spoke person for Glsen?%0D\
-I give this relationship 3,4,5 months%0D\
-Lauren is not pretty%0D\
-Chely would be better with Sarah Paulson %0D\
-Chely is Lauren''s sugar mama (and yes Chely is rich)
If it is true they are dating, then YAY! I like Lauren. I''ve liked her since she appeared on AE''s She Said What. Smart, funny and great personality.\
r300, I think Lauren comes from money, but I do agree that Chely is quite wealthy (owed more to her frugality than anything).
I don''t think is frugality, I think she just knew how to invest her money. Both tweeted about an hour ago about heading home to NYC. I agree its good Chely is dating Lauren, you can tell Lauren makes her happy.
R297, yes she was wearing a scarf, no LB spotted, and she didn''t say much more about it.
There''s a video on Youtube of Chely at Borders at San Diego and her scarf. Type chely wright san diego borders. Tried to put a link was not beaccepted.
303, They always say celebrities look more beautiful in person. Is this true for Miss Wright?
"Dating" is not found in the vocab of a Scorpio.\
Should be interesting to see how this plays out.
Judging from LB''s spots on that AE show, seems she was ready for a healthy relationship, as is Chely I would guess. So, unless C meets someone more mature she''s into, or they have some sort of scorpio/taurus power struggle, it could be something that''s long term. LB doesn''t seem like the kind of person (from those shows) who would shy away from any spotlight
Wow. I didn''t get that *at all* when I watched those AE shows a few yrs back. Completely the opposite, in fact.\
This thread is hilarious b/c we don''t have a clue. My guess is quick, fun, short-term w/LB. Passionate, no hard feelings. My $$ is on a water sign for C long-term in a couple of yrs, but hope she has lots in fun in the middle.
I hope it does last, but I think it is too soon for Chely to call this relationship the one. She does seem very happy. If it ends, I hope they remaine friends.
I have a question for you gals. Chely, Lauren, and Sarah make it seem like NYC is the best place to live in the US. Is NYC that great or is it only great if you have money to be able to do things and live there?
R311 NYC is amazing and the best place to live IMO. It''s better if you have money (just as every place on earth is) and if not, still fabulous. Best city in the USA if you ask me, and I''ve lived in many major cities in the US.
It''s a fun city -- I lived there for a decade--but most leave by the time they''re 40. $$ is def. a factor. Also, peace & quiet.\
I suspect Chely will move out of NYC eventually.
I live in Texas and love living here. If anything happen and I had to move somewhere else NYC would be my first choice. Back to Chely. After her closeted life in Tennessee, I don''t see her moving out of NYC at all. Did you all see This Just Out with Liz on Afterellen, did Kate Moenning just come out?
Now that Chely has gotton a girlfriend, She''s not twitting as often. I wonder what''s keeping her so busy? :)
Did Moenning just come out? If you have to ask, then I guess she didn''t. I mean if someone just came out, why would you ask if she just came out? I must be missing something.
watch the clip of the video. It is confusing about Kate.
KM is another cowardly celebrity who plays at coming out--\
And C not tweeting as much--once a Scorpio starts dating, that''s their focus. Completely absorbed. She''ll need her tweeps once she starts pushing her new campaign.
Does anyone know if Chely is dating Linda Perry? I heard that they attended a red carpet event together in Los Angeles over the weekend and looked pretty cute together. Now that''s a hot couple. Go Linda!
Clementine Ford was at those awards as well. Saw some pics of her on the red carpet with a guy. Maybe she was someone else''s guest and Chely invited LP so that they would all be there.
I don''t get it. Not knocking Chely, but how is it that she has 4 datalounge threads and yet an artist like Brandi Carlile doesn''t have even one?
bitter BC fan
Start one, R321.\
Sometimes I wonder myself--god knows we don''t have much to talk about.
She has many thread lists b/c she is cool and she is fascinating. Maybe if she came out and plainly said who she was seeing it would give us less to talk about.\
I''m suddenly in the mood for a chopped-salad.
I so would,  but I''m a cheapo and don''t have a paid account. Haha. I guess I shouldn''t complain.
You guys, honestly. C is dating Lauren Blitzer. Read through her tweets. Wondering what Pirates is a code word for. Nosey people asking too personal questions?
Who''s asking her questions, R325?\
It''s prob. a football reference. God, they''re boring me already. Next!
After her SD book signing, fans asking her questions is what I meant. She must be starting to tire of it. Now her Dad & Stepmom will meet LB.
When you''re a celebrity, it''s par for the course.\
Maybe they''ll get married in 2 months like good lesbians. It''s funny how Chely said she wanted to get used to dating--has she dated anyone else since coming out?\
I still want to know what happened btw. her and Ash. Weren''t they together for awhile?
everyone is flying in to meet LB.\
every traveler receives one complimentary scarf
i''m curious about the ash thing too. of course we don''t know anything but it would kind of appear that ash was there for C maybe as more than a friend, then as a friend during the writing of her book and her album, then when C got all the attention something happened. but again, we know nothing. maybe they are still friends but ash doesn''t want all the attention of being connected.\
LB seems attractive and confident and if she grew up in new york she probably is introducing C to alot of people there, but she does seem young and not quite as deep as C. at least from her blogs and twitter
R329--awesome. From toasters to scarfs!
By the tweets tonight, it seems that they are no longer hiding their relationship. Good for both of them hopefully this will last, unlike the three celebrity divorces this week. Christina Aguilera getting a divorce that was surprising. So, who is destroying the sanctity of marriage?
Those tweets are nothing more than friendly. Hell, she flirted more w/SP!
She doesn''t deserve so many threads r321 but the same 3 people keep going on and on about every little detail that keeps this thread going. No one else talks about her, that''s why its odd that it keeps going. \
(you can tell its the same people by their style)\
Amazing, considering she''s not all that interesting.
So, you clicked on this thread because she''s not interesting,ok ;)
[quote]So, you clicked on this thread because she''s not interesting,ok ;)%0D\
She is not that interesting, but you three people are. It''s like Gerard Butler and his straight female fans all over again. That is the fascinating part of it.
We live to entertain you.
Chely is sexy hot! Honestly, can you name a hotter OUT female celebrity femme? I can''t. She is seriously making people take notice of the gay community and she is a very good spokesperson for the community. IMO. I agree, she doesn''t represent all of us, but she said in an interview recently that she''s not trying to. She''s just trying to be a voice. Chely, call me.
Sorry, R338. She''s taken. At least for the next few months.\
I''m hotter than Chely.
Anbody still following mamaseeta1''s(Julie/cam) tweets? What do you think of this one:%0D\
hey @notfakecelebrity- congrats, your tweets are in a dismally boring redundant cycle and the real people are now actually more interesting %0D\
4:06 PM Oct 5th via web %0D\
There is no twitter account for notfake celebrity. At first I thought it was nothing, then I started thinking maybe she means Chely, since it was the day after her appearance on Larry King. Then again maybe it''s just a general comment about celebs.%0D
The funny thing is....I think it is mostly the few people posting that Chely is not interesting that are really keeping the thread going.
mamaseeta1 is CAM? how did you figure that out?%0D\
her tweets are kind of crude.
I am new to Chely but I am a big fan of K. Cheno and I LOVE Cherry Jones so I am willing to find out about her based on her connection to them (don''t care for Sarah Paulson but she is a character in this little play and there''s always someone you don''t care for.)%0D\
I am going to give Chely''s book a shot. I just want to mention that Twitter and social media are another form of publicity and people in the spotlight are creating and controlling what they want you to see.
r342 you have to go find part 2 or 3 threads to find out, I can''t remember how they others came to believe that she''s CAM.
[quote]Chely is sexy hot! Honestly, can you name a hotter OUT female celebrity femme? I can''t. ...%0D\
Actress Amber Heard.
This thread keeps going because:%0D\
Chely is the most interesting gay celebrity to come out in a long time because she is 1)actually talking about being gay and is 2)very articulate in doing so. 3)she''s gorgeous.%0D\
Unlike a lot of the gay community from the bible belt, she also didn''t flee to the west and ne coasts as a young woman and spent 20 years in Tennessee living a paradox between christinaity, country music and being gay%0D\
Yes she is wealthy with two major label record deals, over a million albums sold plus tour profits - and her book deal. Not to mention her real estate and other investments. Her home in Nashville is listed at 1 million (don''t know if it was a past or current one).
I don''t understand how this thread keeps going.
mamaseeta1 is Carole. Her personality matches what Chely describes in her book. Through her tweets you know she is a music exec, loves yoga, has a little dog she loves and has fish, has an 80+ year old mother, is Catholic, doesn''t like schmoozing or small talk much as with her comment about saying hi to everyone once at a cocktail party and then leaving. Has a smart ass sense of humour, loves hiking and the the woods etc. It''s all there
RE; the scarves, Chely has been wearing scarves since her 2005 promo tours for Metropolitan Hotel. Her vlogs in 2007 onward have her in scarves. Its a popular fashion accessory.
R349, popular with whom?
R347, you keep the thread going every time you wonder how this thread keeps going.\
It''s like a 4 thread marathon. If you''ve been in it for the long haul you can''t stop until it''s over.\
And I love how the DL police are aghast that someone has *4* threads! My god! Consider all the stupid shit that''s discussed on DL threads...and this doesn''t seem so bad.
Anyone notice in the Youtube videos of Chely at Borders in San Diego that she is wearing a ring on her ring finger of her right hand (I know - not her left hand)? I''ve never seen any rings on her until then. I wonder if LB is wearing one.%0D\
In general, I like mamaseeta1''s tweets. %0D\
I think it''s cute that she calls going into the woods with her deer and hawks "morning church".%0D\
Let''s keep this thread going and annoy the hell out of the people who can''t understand how it keeps going (R347). %0D
The way R348 described Carol/CAM/mamaseeta1/Julia, I think I want to date her...oh that''s right, she''s not gay.
Ya I like her(mamaseeta1''s) tweets, but I find it funny that she has tweeted she''s not gay(I believe it was back in June in reply to someone else''s tweet). I wonder what she thinks to herself about what her relationship with Chely was for 12 or so years.
R354 hasn''t heard of bisexuals.
I think the question of Chely''s popularity here, is put into perspective when you consider her lack of popularity elsewhere. Specifically the two most popular lesbian sites, AE, and L Chat. In the past week this thread has had 55 posts. In the same time period, the L Chat Chely thread has had 1 post, and the AE thread has had the same 1 post. So a question would be why is she so much more popular HERE than anywhere else?
Because we all want to do her, R356.
Aw, how cute - Chely and Lulu are having the best Saturday ever! It must be love.
Gosh, I just can''t imagine what they''ve been doing...
Well they''re definitely tweeting
Ha! It would be awesome if Starbucks twice in one day was code for something else....
If so, then it should be 10x this early in the relationship. Esp. w/a Scorpio/Taurus brew.
LOL yes, perhaps biscuit is a euphemism for something: "Can I have the rest of that biscuit?"
R355 Yes I''ve heard of bisexuals before smartass but mamaseeta1 doesn''t admit to that either. She''s straight, according to her tweets.%0D\
I don''t get why Chely and LB tweet each other if they''re together in the same house/room etc.%0D\
It seems ridiculous to me. What is the point?
Wow, Chely''s overtaken Mariska''s record for threads so full of lesbian they can''t move anymore.
So, I can''t read all this shit. Can someone summarize what your club has uncovered re: the lovely Chely?\
LC doesn''t have that many people posting there r356 and I''m the only lezzie I know who semi-regularly goes to AE.
Give me mamaseeta *any day*. Ugh. Why does CW even bother to tweet? Once she got some puss-puss, bye-bye fans.
Whose mamaseeta? %0D\
She will start tweeting more frequently once this relationship gets tiresome. I still believe she was more into Sarah, but Sarah is committed to Cherry. :)
R368. Actually AE gets several times more visitors than DL. And as for L Chat not having that many people?Are you serious? What is that comment based on? They are the largest lesbian forum by far, and growing. That''s why it''s odd to find so little interest in Chely. Perhaps the other two boards have a younger demo?
r237 what are you smoking? Lchat the largest lesbian forum? No. On average there''s only 200 visitors per day. Because it''s anonymous, there are a lot of "same" posters posting as different people or using proxies to hide who they are. It''s a dinky forum that thinks it''s all that. Filled with tweeners, teens and those in their 20s who refuse to grow up. It is the most popular forum on zetaboard, but compared to others? Nothing. It''s nothing.
Lchat is a cesspool of homophobic tweens. Who the fuck would go on a board with those shitstains? It''s an embarassment that it''s labeled a lesbian board. The head admin hasn''t shown up in months, she let the plac ego downhill and doesn''t give a shit.
A Datalounger runs it right? Wonder why she''d let it go to shit. AE is a better board than LChat.
You can go to L Chat months later and they are still talking about the same thing. I agree that most of the posters are immature.
@chelywright tweet: Headed to New Jersey to play golf with Aunt Char, @lulublitzer and Julie\
Anyone think that maybe, just maybe, Chely is dating the ''other'' older Blitzer sister, and not LB. Seems like the 3 of them hang out a lot.
I think it''s Lauren or Julie. How do you know Julies the older sister?
R377 JB is 31 I think. Not much older then her sister but still older.
Me thinks LB and CW are one very different working schedules. And they are not (yet) living together. So the twittering seems okay\
hope for pics of the golf tournament.
they are on .... I wanted to say. sorry
You can go to L Chat months later and they are still talking about the same thing.\
Sort of like how we''re still talking about Chely "months later." But why not? Why would you stop talking about any subject that you continue to have an interest in? Is there a time limit on how long a subject can be discussed? At any rate, new topics are intro''d all the time which you know since you are one of the many regular visitors. Because of people like you, they''ve gone from averaging 100 to 600 in the past year. And again, they are by far the largest lesbian message board.
r371, there''s little interest on Chely because a lot of people never heard of her before, and to be truthful, the only thing that''s interesting about her is that she was in Country music and came out. She''s kinda boring on every other front. She will always be the "who? person who came out on May 5th" disappointment.I''m sure its not fair of course, but it''s how it is.
[quote]averaging 100 to 600 in the past year.\
No it doesn''t.\
[quote]And again, they are by far the largest lesbian message board.\
No it isn''t.
It''s ironic that it''s the gay community on the coasts that didn''t know who she was and were dissapointed. Do you think Anderson or Queen Latifah saying I''m gay but talking about it would would mean more than red state personalities coming out and actually talking about being gay? It''s the people who live and work in the red states that we need to come out and be more visible in order for things to really change. It was a big deal.
R381, I use to go there, but don''t now. I find their post to be immature. We have talked about Chely for months, but there have been a lot more other post that have been interesting.
Exactly R384. It''s the people in the red states (where I live) that need to hear Chely''s story. Unless you live, or have lived, in a red state you probably really don''t understand her impact. \
What''s great is Chely is very vocal about the fact that many people can''t come out because they can be fired from their jobs without threat of being sued for discrimination. She has mentioned on National TV about "the middle school math teacher that can''t come out." I definitely see Chely being a voice for those people who can''t speak out.
Well lulublitzer has a link on her twitter page to a new recipe blog and in the blog she says fall is the time for new love etc.%0D\
I guess her and Chely haven''t actually been dating as long as people think. It seems recent. Chely has only recently admitted to having a girlfriend at the San Diego book signing.
I like food blogs but whew, girlfriend needs a serious editor.\
Looks like they''ve been dating since late summer.\
Her coming out was and is important (hello, Kate Walsh) but Chely really doesn''t do much to stoke her new fan base outside of a few marathon signings.
I think they started dating when LB tweeted she was back from Italy. And CW was tweeting the words to her song Unknown. And then the whole "one woman''s lost umbrella is another woman''s found umbrella" a couple days later. August. Remember, CW is in lesbian junior high and admits it.\
LB blogs about her love of scarves. I think it''s funny/cute that CW wore a scarf to some signing down south when it was pretty hot out.\
How do straight celebrities announce they are dating, Star magazine?
LChat mods are rumored to be 15. It''s not a lesbian board. Don''t know what it is. %0D\
A classic post example: "Sigh, I was having sex with a guy last night and I couldn''t even enjoy it a bit, I asked him to put on some porn so I could watch while we''re doing it and somehow could help, but nothing. I keep thinking maybe I would enjoy this if I''m with a girl" They appear to be teens or younger, and mostly straight wanting to be bi for the trend factor. I can''t believe an actual datalounge member created this board. But alas it is what it is. You won''t find Chely gossip there. Tho, the KStew lez gossiper here is the same chick who lives over at LChat. We have a tween amongst us people! She tries to get the goss. to crossover and fails repeatedly.
I think it exemplifies LChat's popularity that it's being discussed in a Chely thread. Lol. Also the fact that you know so much about it indicates how much time you spend there. It's nothing you should be ashamed to admit. It's popular for a reason: People like you who enjoy it, keep coming back for more. No need to be ashamed. You're far from the only one. In fact yesterday they set a new record for most visitors online at once-783. This on a board that averaged 100 a year ago.
The reason for the growth and why it will continue is that there have now been so many threads about different lesbian/bi celebs that if you're doing a google search you inevitably get directed there. Which kind of contradicts the "not a lesbian board" claim doesn't it? As for the "non lesbians" currently being discussed: Kristen Stewart, Tegan & Sarah, Lindsay Lohan, Kate Moennig, Amber Heard, Cathy DeBuono, Christina Aguilera, Gro Hammerseng & Katja Nyberg, Catherine McNeil, Jill Bennet, Holly Miranda, Ellen Page, Freja Erichsen, Sara Gilbert, Portia De Rossi, Cynthia Nixon, Kiara Mia, Clementine Ford, Piper Perabo, Ayiiia Elizarraras, Kaki King, Missy Higgins, Jillian Michaels, Mercedes de Acosta (teens want to discuss her?), and of course Chely. And that's just on the first 2 pages. That's an awful lot of lesbians for a non-lesbian board isn't it?
In addition to persons discussed, there are also currently discussions of tv shows and web series that have lesbian content; A thread on lesbian athletes-I first read about Angela Hucles being engaged to a woman there, and a thread devoted to lesbians in the WNBA. Also butch lesbians versus FTMs is a current thread. Oh, and an excellent thread on lesbian/bi stars of the classic Hollywood era. Those "teens" again!
See you there!
Seriously--can we STFU about the LChat thread now? This is a thread about Chely--boring or not. Keep it on track, bitches (said w/love, of course).
Seriously. I want Chely scoop. She is by far the hottest celesbian going and I want to know more. She is so smart and sexy. Have you seen her with her glasses on? I have an idea that if she and Rachel Maddow were to meet that sparks would fly. Anyone? Anyone?
Did you guys see the video where Chely says she is dating someone right now?
Is that your heart breaking when the camera shakes, R394?
what ever happened to that ARTHAIRDESIGNER on twitter that was harrassing chely?\
seems like LB is asserting herself more on twitter--\
"chili tastes good" (not just sounds good)\
and saying they were at the dar williams show together\
that they both smelled some fire at 3am in brooklyn
Yes it does seem like LB''s asserting herself more on twitter. She''s probably more confidant about their relationship, or trying to be. Also, I get the feeling she likes Chely more than Chely likes her. %0D\
Chely tweeted a lot the last 2 days. There she goes again with the I love you''s to Kristen. %0D\
How many of you would say "I love you" to a friend you met about 5 months ago? I''m really curious. Maybe it''s just me but I think she overdoes it. Has she ever even tweeted "I love you" to lulublitzer, her girlfriend?%0D
Blah--Chely should take a cue from KC and tweet with more people than the L Word crew and Lulu. \
CW and LB both seem very young from their tweets. \
Somehow I don''t see CW saying that to her on Twitter--w/KC, it''s just friendly b.s.
there''s a picture of LB and CW on LB''s FB page.\
Can you link to the picture? Thanks.
Lesbian Detectives Club: Chely Wright Part 5 has been started.
seems like someone in her inner circle wants us to know something.
Ha--I knew they checked out this board. \
Cute--they''re definitely lesbian twins. Don''t think I''d want to bang a 29 y/o at 40--but I''m glad she''s happy after all that suffering.
The one in the blue shirt is cuuute!
well, cuter than brad paisley
Okay so do all the people that called this from the start get a prize?
Yep-- you get a toaster and a cup of bitter Starfucks coffee. Congrats!\
C''s def. got a type--young, long hair and face, skinny. Even Brad fits!
Ok thanks. I''d like a scarf too
Ask Lulu. I''m sure she can hook you up----once she comes up for air.
Speak for yourself R416! :)
Getting Close to 40
 At 38 I entered into a LTR with a 28 yr-old, an age difference kinda like Chely and Lulu''s ... I had absolutely no qualms, but I know I would have at 28/18. But age differences seem to matter less as older one gets -- and I''m sure our two daughters, now 7 and 8, don''t mind our getting together either, despite our 10 yrs apart :-)
I am speaking for myself, R423--and I am 40.
I wonder which one of Chely''s 17 friends sold her out to DL w/that photo?\
Take a gander.\
Talk to me in 10 years, R424.
Guess SB for Brenda wasn''t right. According to the book they were both 19 when they meet. \
"@chelywright do u realize u were 22 when we met. I was 24... Glad u finally made it to 40. Hope u had a great bday! Have a great day!"
So I guess Brenda doesn''t have Chely''s email or phone number if her sole way of communicating is via Twitter then.\
Now her tweeting Chely with her every New York City visit whereabout makes a little more sense.
oh wait i misread that -- "wasn''t" Brenda.\
okay, now i''m confused. good point though
Can someone summize from this thread, if Chely is dating someone?
Lauren Blitzer (Chely''s new fling) gets around, if you know what I mean. She has a pattern of dating older women in the industry. She is a starfucker if there ever was one. She hops from one bed to another. She''s young and playing around. This is surprising that Chely''s with her.
Wow, R433. Bitter ex-lover?\
Do tell, of course.
Lulu''s most recent dumpee, Alison Rou from Los Angeles.\
Lauren dumped Alison the minute Chely gave her a second look. Alison was just about to relocate her life and career from LA to New York to be with Lauren, but was completely blindsided. \
They had been together for a while and were about to move in together and were discussing marriage. Poor Alison. \
This will not last long with Lulu and Chely. Be warned, Chely.
This thread just got interesting again...
It did, didn''t.
No kidding 436. I looked up Alison Rou. She is not pretty.\
Are we sure that our source is accurate?\
She''s 38, from Los Angeles but not a beauty by any stretch.\
I''d trade up from Alison Rou to Chely Wright any day of the week too.\
How do you know what she''s like as a person, R438? Is it just about the pretty? She''s not as "glammy" as Chely done up, but she''s far from ugly.\
And what does it say about Chely and LB if this rumor is true? There''s your hint.
r439 sorry but this Alison Rou IS ugly. She looks like a man wearing a wig. She looks very mannish in the pic with her and the dog.
What do you mean R439 about (what does this say about Chely and LB)? \
Chely isn''t always glammy either. She''s drop dead gorgeous in a ponytail and no make up too. I''m not saying she''s a better pick than Alison, I''m just saying that maybe this LB is not a good choice.\
She dumped her serious girlfriend (who she almost moved in with) to be with Chely at the drop of a hat. That doesn''t say much about Lulu.\
And, IMO, Alison is not as pretty as Chely.
r441 you don''t know anything about their relationship so don''t judge. Just b/c one person is ready to uproot themselves does not mean the other partner want such permanency. If any of the gossip is true, maybe Lauren wasn''t in love with this woman. \
Lauren is young. Why should she stay with someone she''s not in love with?
I happen to know the inside track on Alison and Lauren''s relationship and Lauren gave no indication to Alison that she wasn''t happy. \
Strung her along and broke her heart. \
r443 = Alison Rou\
Get over it. People fall out of love and they move on. You should move on.
Chely is probably the warmest/talented person who''s ever happened to Lulu and Lulu the most experienced Chely has ever had.\
Lulu says "something''s gotta give" is her favorite movie. isn''t that movie about a playboy (jack nicholson) who doesn''t fall in love and just uses women and then... bam... realizes true love and finds the love of his life after thinking he was cold and didn''t need anyone.\
Chely''s smart. She''ll figure it out, if there''s something to figure out. It would be a shame though if she got her heart broken so soon after coming out. Who knows, she might break Lulu''s heart. Maybe Chely''s just playing around too. Anybody think of that?
R444, remind me not to date you. Talk about cold.\
This is why I''d never date a 29 y/o. Too much drama.
look at that picture of them, guys, they seem totally pussywhipped. or at least, totally into each other (well LB seems smitten, CW seems relatively into her and psyched to have an attractive girlfriend).
R444 = Lulu. Or Chely with a "bad mommy" voice.
I guess look at it this way, LuLu at least dropped her ex BEFORE she left LA and moved to NY. \
If they are happy, its all good. But, Karma''s a bitch so watch out LuLu or Chely.
You guys are way too harsh. I loves me some gorgeous women but she''s got a kind face. Plus, she''s a muckamuck at ABC.\
Let''s see how beautiful you are, bitches.
I don''t know what people are talking, that girl is cute. I know I wouldn''t want to be a gf of some of you, talk about not being able to trust you, there are classy ways to end a relationship and that isn''t one of them.
How long ago did Lauren Blitzer break up with this Alison Rou(who I think is cute in that facebook picture)?%0D\
Also have any of you read L''s book "Same Sex In The City?" If so, what''s it about exactly? Is that where you are getting your info that she''s a starfucker?%0D\
Does anyone have a link to that more magazine article about CAM(Julia)? The link from a previous thread no longer works.
Seriously R453? Alison''s a cutie? Not! \
Compared to Chely, she''s not a cutie. Chely is gorgeous to most men, women (straight/gay) alike. It''s just how it is. I''m sure some might think that Alison has a kind face and that she''s not unattractive, but c''mon people. If you were Lulu and you could trade up to a beautiful woman with a beautiful mind and soul, wouldn''t you?\
R456. Yes, Chely is gorgeous. Alison is cute. Your attitude makes you ugly.\
LuLu ain''t all that...but I would say she''s cute, too. She looks like she needs a bath in that pic with Chely.
I find Lulu''s face a bit on the masculine side. Just saying
So how is Chely''s career going?
In videos and stuff she''s written (I think an exerpt from her book is on Amazon online) Lulu keeps talking about how femme she is and how no one could tell she''s gay.\
In photos on the surface she does dress/look femme but in the video interviews she carries herself totally butch. so not sure what she''s talking about i would know she''s gay in a second by that. i think she''s kind of butch
i agree 460, i could tell she was gay when i saw her
I can tell as well, she''s got that sporty femme look that is a give away.
With all due respect, you can''t tell if someone is gay. Maybe Lauren carries herself a little butch, but she''s pretty, for sure. She and Chely are a good match. This Alison is not very pretty, I don''t mean to be rude, but she''s a little dykey. Lauren has hit the jackpot if she was looking for a femme girlfriend. Let''s just hope she''s not star fucking like some have suggested. I''m guessing it''s her exes who are saying that anyway. \
Good luck to Chely and Lauren. Hope it works out. They''re cute.
Eh, I hope Chely works it out with CAM, she''s funnier than everyone else on this thread combined.\
"Hiking with friends is fun. As long as I can stay a mile ahead them and have some solitude."
Not trying to be an asshole, but I dont think Lauren has a feminine enough face to be classed at pretty. She''s more sporty -cute
Ugh, Chely''s playing Dinah Shore.
r466 just shut up.
R467 What do you mean Ugh? I''m thrilled to hear that Chely is playing Dinah Shore! The lesbian community is starved for high quality OUT entertainers. I don''t mean to be nasty, but we are full up with dykey singer songwriter/ lezbo bands that could never make it on a national level (in or out of the closet) who perform in our gay circles. Now we have someone who proved that she was just THAT talented, talented and good enough to have success on a national level. We get to claim her now as one of our own. Really? How dare you say UGH. You must be a jealous musician who never made it.
What is wrong with you people? %0D\
One thing that is readily obvious is that the "out" Chely is having immensely more fun than "in the closet" Chely every thought having, and that should be a lesson to all closeted "celebrities", and it''s ultimately the most important thing to take away from all this.
for a minute i thought you meant chely was "playing" dinah shore as in the tournament. yikes.
[quote]The lesbian community is starved for high quality OUT entertainers.\
I wouldn''t call Shelly Wright high quality.
nice job, r472 trying to pretend that Chely Wright isn''t high quality. By mis spelling her name (on a chely wright thread, where it''s clear and obvious how to spell her name) you''re trying hard to show how you really don''t "know her". Hilarious. She''s a big deal and you know it. You''re probably a disgruntled old girlfriend of hers or a musician who never made it and you''re jealous of her fame. Poor you. Face it, Chely Wright is a big deal. She may not be Faith Hill or Shania Twain, but she had more success than most and has released a bunch of CDs and toured around the world. That''s not a big deal. You''re green with envy.
R473? Shely ain''t going to fuck ya!
but carry on, you''re pretty funny!
I haven''t been following this thread all that much. I''m not a big country music fan and don''t know much about Chely (haven''t read this thread in it''s entirety either) . But I''m going to see Chely perform on Thursday. Maybe I''ll get some gossip to share. To be honest, I don''t know any of her songs, but I''m sure it will be a good show. Joes pub always has good performers come to their venue. I''ll report back if I see anything DL worthy.
I hope we won''t have line dancing at Dinah. That would be wrong on so many levels.
Chely seems all JCrew''d / Abercrombie''d out these days
R477 What do you mean by that?%0D\
Since meeting her girlfriend she seems to have a new style, like she''s adopted her gf''s style. That''s all.
That is possibly a good thing. As someone who has always followed country music, including Chely''s career, "image" was always an issue for her. Every album she released she looked different. When the Single White Female Album came out it took me a moment to realize it was the same artist that did shut up and drive and then when her next album came out with her blond hair and popier sounding songs it took a moment again to connect Chely to the songs. She should have been marketed as the female Alan Jackson from the start. She has never stated she was a fashion plate and said outright she never wanted to be a video babe. You can see her fashion choices in old photos. Very country girl. If lulu is dressing her - so be it. What does it matter? She looks more comfortable than she ever has.
Judging by the last few tweets, they are in love and they don''t care if everyone knows it. But it is kind of lame to put it on display like that if they''re tweeting to each other in the same room. Is that a Scorpio thing? What''s Lulu again? Libra?
Obsessed much 482? Give it a rest.
It''s strange and slightly immature, imo -- mixing personal w/music & activist tweets but not really connecting w/her fans, either.\
To each her own.
I dont get a ''in-love '' vibe. I get a ''getting to know you better'' vibe. Lulu seems more into her than vice versa
[quote]I dont get a ''in-love '' vibe. I get a ''getting to know you better'' vibe. Lulu seems more into her than vice versa\
Lesbians are the silliest people in the world. You don''t know either of them. Stalking them and reading their tweets does not make you an expert on their relationship.
I agree with R482. I don''t get why two people in the same room would tweet each other. This is not the first time they have done that.%0D\
Where are they? In Nashville for the CMA''s on Wednesday? Lulu said "down there" so I thought maybe in Nashville. Although now that I think about it, no it probably isn''t the place they would be going.%0D
As "down there" has a special meaning for lesbians, thinking of a city might be a bit out.
"Down there" is refering to Dallas. Chely received some kind of Media Award and lulu must''ve attended. Their same room tweets are clearly a coy-cutesy thing they think is a throw-off to Chely''s worshiping fans. DLer''s know better..
Did any one here go to her performance at Joe''s pub in NYC? If so, did you see Lulu?%0D\
Any interaction between them?
I did R490. Chely gave a great performance. You know I haven''t really followed most of this thread, I''ve only ever skimmed it lightly, so I don''t know who Lulu is. I wouldn''t know if I even saw her. Sorry, I should have read up more on this thread before going. She may have interacted but we did have to leave early as I had somewhere else I needed to be, so I wasn''t able to see if she interacted with anyone after the show, like a lot of performers do at Joes. \
All in all though, as someone who isn''t a country music fan, and not knowing any of Chely''s songs (I only went because well, she''s a new out lesbian and I wanted to support her by going to the show AND I love Joes Pub) I was very impressed. I really liked her music. Wish I could have stayed for the whole thing.
R491 Lulu (lulublitzer is her name on twitter)is Lauren Blitzer, her girlfriend. %0D\
Sounds like you had a good time. I would like to see her perform live.%0D
I''ve noticed that mamaseeta1 (Julia/CAM) has protected tweets.%0D\
Why do people do that? I don''t know all that much about twitter but why would people tweet if they don''t want their tweets read by anyone who finds them.%0D\
So who can read her tweets now? Just people she follows or who follow her, or anyone who has a twitter account?%0D\
I have to say I liked some of her tweets.
I''ve got the same J. Crew boyshirt "Lulu" is wearing in a previous pic.%0D\
Apparently it has a lesbian vibe, but then about 90% of what J. Crew, Gap, Banana Republic, A&F, American Eagle, and even Victoria''s Secret sells nowadays does.%0D\
Those retailers have quite thoroughly displaced LL Bean and Eddie Bauer among the younger lesbian crowd.
If you watch Chely preform IT WAS at Joe''s Pub, you can see her gazing at Lauren. It''s on youtube
I attended the Black Tie Dinner in Dallas over the weekend. It is a fancy affair. Chely was given the final award of the evening. She mentioned her girlfriend Lauren in her acceptance speech. Chely and Lauren were seen all weekend holding hands and looking really happy and in love. It was nice to see a beautiful lesbian couple, happy and representing our community so well. Good for them.
So their an item?
So the same weekend that Chely announces publicly that she has a girlfriend, Carole-Ann goes and privatizes her Twitter account. Interesting! Jealous much???
When and where did she announce she had a gf and who is her gf?
She was receiving an award at a black tie dinner in Dallas. At the end of her speech she was acknowledging her family who was in attendance and she also acknowledged that the person she loved was there, Lauren (Blitzer).
Does anyone know if the speech and/or award ceremony is available on you tube?
It''s there but it won''t alow me to save my post if I put a link here.%0D\
Chely is in it around 2:45 but she doesn''t thank her family or Lauren in this video.
I''ve always thought Lauren was cute, so good for Chely. I''m not convinced she is LTR-material, and I think that is what Chely is looking for - but if she only has lots of great sex in the interim, it''s all good. %0D\
Being single myself at the moment, and having dated a few duds lately that I didn''t even want to have a one-night-stand with, it sounds like a good deal to me.%0D\
The fact that they are an item however kind of freaks me out because it makes it so obvious that the "celebrity" lesbian community is this small incestuous little clique.
if mamaseeta was going to block her tweets i really wish she''d have waited til after the CMAs - we are missing out!
Lookswise Chely could do better than Lauren. Would love to see her paired up with Clementine Ford. That would be a hot twosome
I agree that Chely could do better. Just sayin''. LB must be a nice girl though if C is with her. As far as my fantasy Les pairing? Chely & Portia. Damn.
r496 - I was there too. It would have been cool to meet another DLer.
Wouldn''t it have been nice if Chely was allowed to perform or at least give a video message during the CMA''s promoting the "GLSEN "Safe Place Kit" and "It Gets Better" campaign? Ever since Chely came out, the industry has claimed to be so accepting and not homophobic....but will they ever prove it?
Where did she meet Lauren , at GLSEN? And how long ago, does anybody know? Ha she known her (not dated her) since she moved to NY in 2008?%0D\
I miss mamaseeta''s tweets too.
mamaseeta probably made her tweets private because someone here kept posting them.
I see a new video on youtube of Chely''s speech. In this one it''s the full speech and she does mention Lauren and her family towards the end.%0D\
Search on youtube:%0D\
"Chely Wright Speech at Dallas Black Tie Dinner 2010"%0D\
She''s a very good speaker. Although she has repeated this story so often in her many interviews that I guess it''s second nature now.
Oh my, butching it up Lauren? I... kinda like it, actually.
They look like sisters.
Which one is Chely?
Lauren''s too butch
How butch can she possibly be? She''s wearing nail polish, a necklace and carrying a purse in her arms. Doesn''t seem all that butch to me. Her jacket looks nice. Just because she might not be wearing a dress hardly makes her butch.
She looks butch to me too. Just the way she''s holding herself, smug smirk. Not what''s she wearing -- the vibe she has in the pic. She also looks a little full/ proud of herself
Agree with 518, its not just about clothing, it''s about aura. And her Aura is masculine. Ive seen her interviewed and she did come across nice.
why shouldn''t Lauren be full/proud of herself? She just landed the hottest, most sought after new lesbian on the scene. I''d look smug too. Congratulations are in order for her, I''d say.
You guys describing Lauren as "too butch" or butch in general as if its a bad thing sound like bullies. People are who they are and everyone needs to start being more accepting of that.
Ummmm, a satin jacket over a man-looking shirt for an awards dinner?* Really? Makes them look even more mismatched there. %0D\
*not usually a mean girl, sorry.
...I saw Chely last week @ Joe''s Pub. She was amazing live and so engaging with her audience which is so refreshing. She would have played longer had she been able to, they have a right venue. She dedicated a song to her "dear friend" and focused on her the entire time she sang it, my friend and I looked at one another and both said "that''s no friend." I would bet the farm in was Lauren. I wish them both the best, opposites attract as they say....
I concur with post 503, I too am not convinced it''s an LTR match. Following along this thread from the start, you detectives were spot on regarding the back and forth LB tweets. I too followed them all along and knew there was innuendos in there, leading one to think there was more to it than simply friendly tweets. I thought SP was trying to get her flirt on back when. I think I was completely shocked that it''s LB that Chely is with. I could think of many others suited. I recall back when her book came out, it was said she was a playa, like a Shane. It''s all heresy and hopefully it''s not the case. I wonder if their religious viewpoints will be a factor or not. Chely strikes me as very religious. Any of my ex gf''s (like the last one) we just didn''t go "there" when it came to religion, it would have polarized us. In any event, good for them, I too have dated some serious duds of late and if they have the chemistry, go for it.
Sweeties, if indeed it''s a Taurus/Scorpio match, religion is far from their minds.\
Sex, sex, sex, baby. And maybe gasoline.
thanks for the pic, r512.
I am a virgo and ALL my exes are scorpios. No idea why. Off topic i know
Recently, as has been said above, mamaseeta1 (Julia/ Carole) protected her tweets. Well now it seems her twitter account no longer exists. Where did she go? I wonder if she has changed names yet again.
Oh mamaseeta1 can run, but she can''t hide. We will find her....muuuuhhhhaaaahhhaaa.
Someone brought up religion. Miss Heartland Christian is going kosher.
Someone just outed CAM on Chely''s fb. Be interesting to see if they let the post stay up there.
...I just looked at CW''s fb page and didn''t see it, I would imagine that would be removed immediately.
What did it say?
Someone asked if Julia in the book was Carole Ann Jarusinsky. They''d spelled Jarusinsky wrong, too. Then someone accused the poster of not being "positive and hopeful" and then the post was gone.
what reason did CAM give for closing out mamaseeta?
Her friend Chuck recently blocked his Twitter account.
...ah now it makes sense when that person posted "what is wrong with that idiot..." I suspected that is where the post may have been and was deleted.
LuLu''s FB wall is blocked now too. It wasn''t a few weeks ago.
R536 At first her tweets were protected then a week or so later the mamaseeta1 account no longer existed. Who knows what happened. %0D\
Funny that Chuck''s tweets are now protected too. What''s all that about? Are they getting harassed through twitter somehow?
Who is cam?
R541...refer to R1.
No recent tweets between lulublitzer (Lauren) and Chely.
CAM is Carole Ann Mobley AKA Julia in Chely''s book.
I am sure anyone close in CW''s circle will be more discreet going forward and super private since people have been able to draw conclusions and publicly post ie who "Julia" maybe or actually is...who knows, "Julia" I am sure is super pissed at what is being put out there and could even be resentful...and I know what it is like, I have always played a horrible juggling act with my personal life. It is no fun. I hate it. I am not out at work but get harassed all the time about my sexuality. Co-workers (men especially) I work with a bunch of homophobic sob''s, but will bring it up to me in when business is being discussed "how hot 2 sexy women 2gether are..." It''s no picnic having others be intrusive when you are trying not to call attention to yourself.
"discreet and super private"\
You mean like being closeted?
@ 546 no, that is not what I meant....the context in which I wrote it was referring to her circle of friends. I see posts here that this person, that person etc., protected their tweets, made their facebook private all of a sudden etc...that''s not being closeted, they are keeping their conversations private is what I meant so that the world doesn''t see what they are up to, like meeting for a movie, being at the Cubbyhole Hole etc etc.
Now that Chely has publicly mentioned her gf, Lauren, and they''re toning down the tweets between them, we''ll need more inside dish. Step up insiders out there, you can trust us. Seriously.
r545, why don''t you come out? why don''t you look those sob''s right in the eye and tell them you''re a lesbian? do you think you might lose your job?
@549 Why don''t you use your real name when posting on a stupid message board?
lol @ 549, ty...
@ 549, sorry to get off topic on this thread, but since you asked...because I work for a private company right out of NYC (albeit it some odd 1500 employees) who happen to be republican hypocrites in management, the good ole boyz club. My boss today started his crap with me. I was working with my production team and pulled my back painting my place when he said in front of everyone (to test me as always) "why are you bent over...do you need me to straighten you out? Don't you get it, I will make you straight..." I am femme & it confuses them I am certain... but they know not much about my personal life, I keep it private because they are scumbags. They rip employees & our accounts apart all day long, create a hostile environment. There is one female manager that they gossip about to be gay and they transferred her alleged gf to my facility and I watch them rub this poor girl out to the breaking point. They forced her out. This same homophobic asshole boss of mine talks how he would love his wife to be with his next door neighbor (female) so he could watch, had a gay brother who dies of AIDS no less and gay bashes all day long. I swear, I think the pofs is gay and this is how he masks it by bullying and harassing others. I have huge responsibilities and try to get through the day with as little stress as can be...when I do resign, they will all get an email blast from me cc'ing everyone at corporate for the record.
R545 People have been posting who Julia really is for quite some time now - the last several months. Honestly, what did Chely expect? She wrote a memoir with info about Carole's type of job, property, some personal info, etc. %0D
Many people in the music biz in Nashville know who she is and we do too. I assume there is some harassment going on with tweets otherwise why did CAM get off twitter for what is now the second time and why did Chuck protect his tweets? The gossip may eventually fade for a while but when that documentary about Chely comes out in the New Year it will start all over again. %0D
I feel badly for CAM. She must feel somewhat trapped. No matter how it went between her and Chely, I don't think she deserved this.You shouldn't have to have your private life put in a book if you don't want it to be. I really would love to hear her side of the story, although I guess that will never happen.%0D
In coming out Chely has perhaps set herself free, but in revealing details about her former girlfriends she may have put them in very bad/awkward positions - and not just Julia/Carole but also "Kristin".%0D
totally agree with you @ 552. I wonder if CW let any of the ex''s know she would be writing a memoir and details about them even though they are anonymous. CW at one of her live shows said that "Like Me" was written anonymously about an ex of hers that she now longer has any communication with and had no idea how she was managing these days but hoped she was well...maybe she didn''t tell her ex''s they would be mentioned in her book.
R553 I''m guessing she didn''t tell them beforehand.%0D\
As for the song "Like Me", someone posted here on this thread that at one of Chely''s CD signings and performances (I think in San Diego), during the Q&A part, someone asked Chely who "Like Me" was about and she said "Kristin". I was surprised to read that as I had previously thought it was about Julia/Carole.
we should take bets on how long before CW and LB "uhaul." Now we know CW is not the cook and with lulu''s cooking blogs, CW will be set in that department. CW is such a cute dork.
Rumor has it, CAM is posting on here.
I haven''t heard that rumor.
I haven''t either and cannot imagine she would bother to post, although reading the posts is another story IMHO...happy holidays to all!
@552, I understand your concerns. It''s no fun being outed when you''re not ready. However, "Kristin" is responsible for outing herself by her own behaviour, not to mention her psychotic ex-boyfriend. DADT is alive and well in Nashville so nothing significant has changed for CAM. She will continue denying it and she will continue making racist homophobic slurs so she''ll be just fine. She had to delete her twitter account. It''s a mere nuisance. Chely''s book has not only changed lives, she has saved lives. And she will continue to do so.
R559 True enough about Kristin, but what racist slurs has CAM made? Do you know her? You sound like someone who knows her more than just from her twitter account.
R559 Chely has saved lives? Not mine. She''s made mine miserable. I would love to know her personally, but I know I never will!
Yes, I''ve had the pleasure of meeting CAM and we have mutual friends. She''s a smart and clever business woman. She''ll make deragatory comments about gays only to protect herself. Just like most homosexuals who are in the closet. I''m not condoning it, it''s just reality. That tactic seems to work well in Nashville. Chely has ABSOLUTELY saved lives. I don''t think the average person realizes the magnitude and impact she''s making by telling her story and living her truth. She also does so much behind the scenes. I honestly don''t know where she finds the time. She somehow manages because she genuinely cares about people.
I''d bet CAM deleted her twitter again because of the recent twitter threats made to Lulu and "Mama" by someone called "chelyslover". They were directed to someone called Mamaleece but maybe CAM freaked out thinking it was her, Mamaseeta1. Anybody know what the hell went down with that situation?%0D
who is the juvenille asshole who created a twitter account titled "drunken chely" as EVERYONE know CW doesn''t touch the stuff....what pathetic saps exist in this world!!!! \
oh and at post 561 "made mine miserable" you sound a tad obsessed...work on that!
@ 564...there were public threats made to lulu & "mama?" I don''t have twitter nor do I want to...if that is the case with alleged threats, I would imagine now the unstable freaks will come out like cock roaches. Sad & disturbing.
None on this thread!
R562 So since you kind of know CAM perhaps you can help. Through her tweets she made herself sound like she is really into men and totally straight. I read Chely''s book so this left me thinking she''s one of three things:%0D\
1) She really is mostly straight but she just happened to fall in love with Chely. There have never been any other relationships with women and there probably won''t be any as she does not think about women that way.(Except Chely, of course).%0D\
2)She is bisexual but she can only publicly go on about men as she must appear straight. %0D\
3)She is totally gay but in the closet and by tweeting that she liked this man or that man she was just trying to convince others (and maybe herself) that she is straight. %0D\
I hope I wrote this properly. Ok so is she really gay, straight or bisexual? What say you?
R562 So is Chely happy with Lauren? Seems like it from the tweets.
@R568, What say I? I can honestly say I have no idea how CAM identifies these days. I''ve never known her to be with a woman other than Chely. But I do know how much in love she was with Chely. As Chely was with her. Circumstances prevented them from being together. Sad, but true. And I also know Chely would never intentionally hurt CAM. Sorry to be so boring.
@R569...yes, very much so.
I read this page but not the previous 500 posts on this thread, so I don''t know if this was established before...%0D\
Is this Lauren Blitzer that horrible New York based writer who just bathes in the world of celebrity day and night and then writes pointless screeds about it? If so, this relationship won''t be going on for long.
so in other words you''d say CAM is not a "damn liar?"
@R573...haha! No, I wouldn''t call CAM a "damn liar". In denial perhaps but she''s on her own journey and more power to her.%0D\
@R572...harsh! Seems to me Lauren has something going on. Chely keeps a sparkle in her eyes these days and a grin from ear to ear.%0D\
And I bet she doesn''t cry afterwards. *wink*
I happen to know CAM (not good friends, but we run in the same circles in Nashville) and I can tell you that she's been "outing" Chely for the past few years and talking down on her in public places. (mostly when she's had too much to drink, as she likes to do) Her drinking buddies talk trash on Chely too and CAM has been letting them do that for quite some time now. So, it's really out of line for anyone to accuse Chely of betraying a trust by writing the details of her life. If people in Nashville might wonder if CAM was Chely's partner, well that's because CAM has not been very discreet with the people she's told and those people have been running their mouths for some time now. CAM is no victim, believe me. And yes, she says hateful things about gays and other racist comments. She's not known as a nice person. At least Chely, in telling the truth, has done it in a respectful and productive way that is helping people. And in case you're wondering, no, Chely and I are not friends. I am just someone on the inside who knows more than most and this is how I see it. I am a gay person though, so I've been paying close attention to this situation for years. IMO, Chely was victimized by this town, by her former partner and now by her town again. Peace out.
@R575...very true. Chely is such a talented artist but more importantly, so kind and genuine. It''s hard for me to hear people say "who cares that she came out...no one even knows who she is". She had several hits a few years back and everyone in the Nashville music industry knew who she was. Had she stayed with Brad Paisley, there is no doubt they would have been another "Faith Hill and Tim McGraw". Chely could have been huge. But she couldn''t lie. And Nashville didn''t "take kindly to that". Personally, I know NO ONE who works as hard as Chely. Yet the doors kept shutting because of the rumors. And she stopped denying it. I don''t want to judge CAM because it''s not my place. But I wholeheartedly agree with R575, CAM is no victim.
Well said at R575 and R576. The way Nashville has treated Chely is why I want to see her do so well. She took the high road and will be happier because of that.
I hope Chely and Lauren are really together and won''t let all of this lez drama from the past, present, or future mess with a potentially good relationship. Both have had relationships that didn''t work for whatever reasons(like everyone of us)and who knows how long it will last but...I like Lauren. She''s softly butchy but fem. too. Chely is incredebly beautiful and could have possibly any lesbian out there but maybe NY/LA society, high maintenance drama queens can''t compete with the soft butch from Brooklyn in the bedroom and out. I''m rooting for them! Hope to find out more if they are serious.
The first time I met Chely was in 2001. I interviewed her after she walked the red carpet at an event in Nashville. I remember thinking how different she was from the other celebrities. She made eye contact with me the entire time and was so engaging. She was real.%0D\
I went home and told my boyfriend (i was in the closet too at the time) about everyone I interviewed but I specifically said, Chely Wright stands out. Although I have to admit, there was something very sad in her eyes. Yep, these days that sadness is replaced with a twinkle!! HA! Good for her! And Lauren seems like a very nice person.
(572) Chely has said that Damn Liar was about "kristen".%0D\
(573) yes, it''s that Lauren Blitzer.
R572 Where does Lauren Blitzer write these "pointless screeds"? Any links to any of her writing besides the recipe blog and twitter?%0D\
Am I glad I asked about CAM, as all of a sudden there''s people replying with some real info. Where were all of you in the previous threads?%0D\
R575 I have to say, though, if CAM is so terrible what was Chely doing with her for 12 friggin'' years? There must be something good about her.%0D\
If not, then Chely must have had very low self esteem to be with someone who is like that.%0D\
It''s a good thing then that Chely got out of Nashville.%0D\
R570 No you aren''t boring.%0D
@R581 My best friend who happens to be a gay guy introduced me to DL recently. He showed me the Chely Wright thread. I couldn''t help but to defend her when I saw the comment about Chely betraying CAM. @R575 was spot on. I''ve asked myself that same question "why was Chely with CAM for so long"? But when you''re in the closet, sometimes you simply take whatever you can get. I speak from experience. With that said, I''ve had one on one conversations with CAM and she can actually be very charming. I''m sure she has many redeeming qualities. I''m also pretty certain she misses Chely which contributes to her miserable attitude. I just wish she''d take the high road like Chely does.
Hi CAM! (Waving at R582)
@R583 Hahaha!! Nope. Sorry to disappoint. Try again Lesbian Detective.
How does Lauren Blitzer make a living? And how and when did they meet?
I love that someone called Lauren "soft butch" on here. I think that''s a really good description though she seems to really identify as femme from those interviews and the bit of her book on amazon online. I guess she likes to see herself as femme and standing out that way
Good point, R582. "Why did Chely stay with CAM for so long?" Right. It''s not like she had a lot of choices. Many closeted gay people settle for relationships with people that they''d otherwise break up with immediately, but when you''re in the closet%E2%80%93 you''re stuck. You take what you can get. I don''t mean that negatively toward CAM, I''m just answering the question again to clarify.
585, Lauren works for GLSEN. So Chely probably knew her for months before they became a couple. I have no idea how much you''d make at a non-prof. Insights anybody?
Wow! What a year Chely has had - headline news around the world; sell out writers tour; best selling book, CD and concerts; achieved status as the most courageous, talented and beautiful lesbian ever; and meets the love of her live.
i can''t imagine LB would make more than 60k. Probably more like 50k
Lauren Blitzer doesn''t have to make alot of $ at her position at GLSEN because she is from a very wealthy family (whole private school education, best NY upperclass Jewish background,investments ...etc.) and her book still is selling so I don''t think $ is a big worry for Ms. Blitzer at all. She''s got it all...plus HOT, HOT, HOT Chely (icing on the cake!!!) We should all be soooo blessed!!!!
...don''t be surprised, LB could easily be making 6 figures. Non profit organizations take care of their staffing salaries, especially their executive positions. It''s actually a hypocrisy. Primary example, The Red Cross, 500 grand for hire ups.
So again, why do people think badly about Lauren? People say she''s a celebrity whore or whatever but then never back it up except the story of her dating some abc exec that she dumped for Chely that was discussed a few pages ago. Whate else? She sounds ok on twitter and the few AfterEllen vlogs that I watched.
Is Chuck who recently protected his tweets the same Chuck that Chely fired back in 2004 for getting fan club members to pretend they were family members of military and call radio stations and ask for Chely''s Bumper of My SUV to be played? If so, how come she did not write about this in her memoir? You would think this would have been a very difficult thing for her to do - fire her best friend and fan club president. Also when did she rehire him? He intoduces himself on the LIKeME forums as her best friend and co-founder of the forum.

Summary of the abc exec that was dumped by Lauren?
R595 - See pages 22 and 23 of this thread.
R444? You can not be serious!
Re: The Bumper Of My SUV Scandal and Chely''s "firing" of her best friend Chuck: I my boyfriend works for Chely''s law firm and as it turned out, Chely had legal ground to sue the newspaper who published all of those false allegations. It was a bunch of BS and Chely''s firing of her best friend happened within the first 48 hours of the whole drama, before any facts were really revealed. And, Chuck and Chely came to the mutual decision that it was best to do that. It was a very confusing situation and we who are "in the know" about it have always respected Chely for taking the high road and not raising hell about how her name (and her best friend''s name) were dragged through the mud. They did nothing they were accused of.
And I''d add too that it''s not so hard to imagine who goes on these message boards to trash Chely. Some of us are Nashville, Music Row types and if you read her book you can clearly tell who might have a reason to go on to message boards and do their best to trash her. \
And no, I''m not talking about exes. I''m talking about people (whom she had enough class not to name in her book), but she told it how it was. She went into detail about what it''s like to be closeted; what it''s like to have people in your inner circle know your secret and have the ability to use it against you. Chely wrote it as it is in her book and I''m suspecting that most of this trash talk on here and a lot of other boards is from the few people she took to task in her book. Many of us on Music Row are cheering her on.
Alison Rou is fug the pics linked to are flattering.
