Derek Hough has hissy fit in gay bar

For better or worse, Derek Hough is a pretty fantastic dancer with an amazingly ripped body. That much is obvious, but there’s always been something quite ambiguous about Derek, which is that he has acquired the reputation for wooing the ladies, but there might be something else there, you know? First there was the contrived romance between he and Shannon Elizabeth (which she later admitted was entirely fake for purposes of “DWTS” votes), and then he supposedly hooked up for awhile with Cheryl Cole, but then she dumped him for a fame upgrade. All along, Derek has gotten along quite famously with his possible future brother-in-law, Ryan Seacrest, which has provided plenty of fodder for beard-related jokes. I guess what I’m saying is that there have been persistent rumors that Derek might actually be gay. Who knows if these rumors are true or not? Regardless of his sexuality, I guess all the talk may have gotten under Derek’s skin. According to a story in this week’s Enquirer, Derek threw a little diva fit when some dude tried to take a photo of him at a Salt Lake City gay bar:

"Sexy pro dancer Derek Hough donned some shiny silver pants and shook his fanny at a popular Salt Lake City gay club — but then freaked out when a fan tried to take his picture!

The talented 27-year-old has been dogged by gay rumors for years despite having a string of girlfriends. And although it’s been reported that he is dating “DWTS” contestant and opera singer Katherine Jenkins, she was nowhere in sight when Derek showed up at Jam, a gay club in his hometown, on July 21, a source confided.

“I’m a big fan of Derek’s, and I always thought or HOPED he was gay,” Jam regular Ken lee told The Enquirer. “Seeing him shimmying with his buddies at the gay club wearing skintight, shiny silver pants just made my mind scream!”

But Ken says when he approached Derek for a photo, the dancer “got all nervous and fidgety and stammered, ‘No, no, no — not here!’”

“I was really careful about approaching him respectfully,” Ken explained. “I went up to Derek and said, ‘excuse me’ and asked very nicely if I could have a photo taken with him. Well, he couldn’t have been more rude or a bigger diva!

“I was like, OK, he’s clearly not comfortable about having his picture taken in a gay bar. If you’re not gay, then what’s the problem? Derek’s behavior was very suspect.”

“Derek very well may not be gay,” added Ken. “But he sure was dressed pretty and threw an impressive hissy fit when I asked for a photo!”

They have gay bars in Salt Lake City and are the Houghs Mormon?

[quote]Why was he so rude about it? What an asshole.

The exact quote is ‘No, no, no — not here!’. Sounds like a reasonable answer to me. He didn't slap the guy, the queen was clearly offended that Hough didn't wrap his arm around him for an instant picture. That's what's hilarious and sad sometimes about people and celebrities. Derek Hough could visit children's hospitals every day but if a fan is rebuffed in a 20 second encounter he is instantly labeled an asshole.

Hilton's "rescue" is pretty pathetic. He may have had a reason other than being in a gay bar to freak out over having his photo taken? Shimmying isn't illegal? Bitch, please.

Interestingly enough, I have an acquaintance (not quite a friend but someone I'm friendly with) who works as a rentboy, he's pretty cute, sort of has a muscle twink thing going on, and I have had conversations with him in the past about who he's fucked with. No lie, he has talked to me about this guy, and I didn't really even know who he was outside of recognizing his face, but he said specifically Derek Hough who works on DWTS, has been with men in his association or whatever it is, but that he's never slept with him personally. He didn't tell me if he was a top or bottom or anything like that, so I don't have much to add to this outside of the fact that he's at the very least occasionally bisexual. I don't think he's gay, though, personally. And if he is, his Mormonism and the fact he's clearly insecure about being called gay for so long highlights he won't be coming out anytime soon.

My friend also told me to never release details about his contacts, so luckily this website is mostly anonymous.

I agree, R19. It seems as though today celebrities have to agree to every request, reasonable or not, lest they be labeled "rude".

What is rude is walking up to a total stranger and asking them for this and that, thinking they owe you something.

He's probably like that other Mormon dancer, Benji Schwimmer. They tie themselves up in knots trying to not be gay. They're told if they have opposite sex marriage they can stay in the church. He's a product of a fucked up religion so I don't see him coming out. I feel sorry for the future Mrs.

Derek and his sister want to be very famous. So she will play beard for the very famous and wealthy Seacrest as his "Eva Gabor" and Derek will hide in the closet.

Derek is under a lot of pressure. His entire twitter following is female. If the gay stuff gains legs, he's lost his entire fan base. Derek won't be coming out anytime soon.

Derek decided to go with the heartthrob image (for the potential mainstream TV or movie career). THAT's why he would lose his mostly female fanbase. If he had gone for a campy gay best friend image he wouldn't be in that situation.

I wouldn't call ken dolls body "ripped", definitly a nice dancers body though.

by Anonymousreply 3608/11/2012

Why would he say "No no no. Not here?" Because, gay or not, he didn't want to be photographed in a gay bar. Because his fan base is female. Which means he is willing to either lie about who he is (FAME WHORE) or deflect more rumors about being gay so the MONEY TRAIN keeps coming in. Again, a whore for money. If this was just about a rude photographer getting rightfully rebuffed, that is one thing. If this is about someone not wanting to be thought of as gay, that is another thing. And fucked up. Being IN a gay bar doesn't make anyone gay. But this guy sounds like he is trying to do some "image control" that, by fiat, is insulting to gay people in my opinion. If you really care that much about your image, maybe don't GO to gay bars, douchebag.

R11, Damnit Silver Slippers - Quit being such a slut! You stay in Colton's closet until he is ready for you to shine again. Come on, it's so bad...remember the golden shower curtain is in there with you. And, who knows, maybe Derek will let the silver pants out of his closet to come visit you in Colton's. That would be great! I bet the two of you would look so good together. Derek and Colton can take turns sharing both of you...sounds pretty hot, right? *fingers crossed*

Ok if Derek wants to hide the fact that he's gay why does he go to a gay bar? People could take pics without even asking him. I'm trying to understand the celebrities (D list) mind.

There's this blind item:

BLIND GOSSIP 08/06 **#1**

There’s been an interesting development in the relationship of this TV girl. Her boyfriend – who is neither famous nor wealthy – isn’t too happy about her fake-dating a TV Guy with whom she appeared on one season of popular show. So he got hold of some very compromising photos of the TV Guy with his Boyfriend (who has also appeared on the same show), and told TV Guy that he was going to send them to the tabloids. TV Guy totally panicked. He turned to a good pal of his, Rich Guy, for advice and help. Rich Guy – who is more high profile, on more television shows, and has more money than everyone else in this blind combined – said that the best way to keep TV Girl’s real boyfriend quiet was to offer him some hush money. He even generously gave the TV Guy the money for the payoff. Why would Rich Guy do that? Well, it’s in his best interest, too. He is fake-dating the TV Guy’s sister. He knows that if one of these fake relationships was disclosed, they could all come tumbling down like dominoes.

TV Girl: Maria Menounos

TV Guy: Derek Hough

TV Guy’s Boyfriend: Mark Ballas

Rich Guy: Ryan Seacrest

TV Guy’s Sister: Julianne Hough

I know Derek's boyfriend is not Mark Ballas. I believe it could be Brian Fortuna, who lives in Los Angeles now - at, one of the commenters said he figured out it was Brian by the clue "dominoes" but I'm not sure I get that.

It could also be Apolo Ohno, who was helped by Derek on a dance with Julianne, even before Derek was a regular dancer on the show.

Katherine Jenkins had a long term "engagement" with very gay (closeted mainly due to his asshole disapproving father) tv host Gethin Jones in England. They very publically "broke up" just before her season of Dancing with the Stars and the show tried to use that to summon up sympathy for her. Pathetic.

I remember meeting Tony O'Dell from Head of the Class on the patio of a gay bar. He didn't stay long as people started recognizing him..he got very nervous.

It has been proven the last part of the brain to develop is the pre frontal lob which is the decision making part of the brain. What this means is that many young males in their 20's are bisexual until about 28 when the choose one direction or the other. All those frat boys who get drunk or those guys who are experimenting are just normal as all get out. It is a phase for most of them.
