Yes, according to a Dlisted item from 2005: [quote]A very reliable source was at Showtime's Tribeca Film Festival party at Nobu this past Friday. My source noticed none other than Rocco DiSpirito of The Restaurant fame chatting with openly gay actor Mario Cantone and an unidentified man. My source says Rocco looked gross and was wearing a plaid blazer with a polka-dot shirt. Rocco spent a lot of time chatting it up with Mario near the dancefloor. [quote]Then after a few minutes, Rocco grabbed the unidentified man's hand and they held hands across the dancefloor. They then canoodled in a very low-key way the rest of the evening. [quote]My source also tells me that Rocco has had several threesomes involving men.

He had an affair with Jai "Queer Eye" Rodriguez.

Why drag this hoary celebrity name back from the past? Besides all I remember was criticism that he got fat or got facial surgery. Good riddance.

Doesn't he have a new show on Bravo soon or am I making that up?

It would be dispiriting to me to know he has a new show.

He does have a new show starting on Bravo June 15, I believe, and he is tres gay in the commercials for it.

I was at a restaurant once when he and a few friends came in. It was surprising, because it wasn't what I'd call a fancy restaurant. Just a mid-level sushi joint. He kept taking calls on his phone, talking loudly and then walking outside then coming back in. He barely looked at his friends, he was so rapt with his five million phone calls. He struck me as being a total douche.
(Can you call someone a "douche" here or will someone tell me it's hateful towards female hygiene?)

Let the straights have him. I'm probably one of 10 people who watched both seasons of "The Restaurant" and he came off really badly, especially season 2 where he basically walked off the show. I can totally believe he's a douchebag asshole.
On the show he flirted with the gay employees as well as the pretty female waitstaff, but it came off more as a teasing power-trip than actual sexual interest.

There's also no real evidence that he could possibly be totally gay. That said, getting fat in one's 40s is *far* more prevalent among straight men than gay men.

I saw him at mastros in Beverly Hills with two of the skankiest women that I have ever seen in my life. Seriously, they looked like hookers. He also looked high as a kite. I think he is straight, and really gross.

I don't know if he's strictly gay now, but I know he's an asshole. He had an affair with a (female) friend of mine while he was married, she knew he was married but he pulled that old bullshit 'I'd leave her right now but our finances are too complicated and entwined' and 'Be patient, I'll be divorced soon and then we can be together for good'. Their affair lasted about 18 months. From what she said at the beginning it was pretty good and he treated her really well, but by the end she said she couldn't believe anything he said. He's apparently a very bad liar. She also said he had a temper problem which was why she finally ended it. During that time (when their affair was just about over) she heard that he had another on the side thing going on with a guy. When she brought it up to him he said it wasn't true, she said she didn't believe him because he denied the whole thing with what she called his 'liar face'.

This guy was on The View this morning.
He is at least as gay as the current King of the Closet Graham Moore, the screenwriter of Imitation Game.
They had him show guest host Stacy London how to whisk eggs by moving in close behind her and taking each of her hands in his.
It was the stiffest, most uncomfortable display since the Clooney nuptials.

There were lots of rumors back when the NBC show was on that he was hooking up with pre-op trannies. That seems to be a common method for so-called straight guts to start exploring new horizons. I'm guessing he does male-identified guys by now.

A good friend did a lot of work for him over an extended period of time and Rocco stiffed him on a decent amount of what was owed. My friend worked with tons of celebs and restauranteurs. He absolutely hates Rocco.
However he says he's totally straight.

He is a "FIRST-CLASS,GRADE-A ,ALL STAR DOUCHE-BAG" Even before he had his "douche-bag show", he thought his shit didn't stink. I had an argument with Rocco in NYC at a restaurant about 8 yrs ago,total fucking asshole,All about a chair he wanted for his table of friends,because my 1 friend was late and he wanted the chair for his stuff. I told the MOFO to back off but he got him my face. I told him "don't let the custom suit fool you, my central Florida,lower middle class white trash Philly Faggot ass will fucking kick the shit outta you" The owner told Rocco"he will hurt you,he has no qualms about hurting people".
