BREAKING and SHOCKING*** Sam Champion *IS* Gay and engaged...

The whole world is speechless at this shocking development

by Anonymousreply 6010/12/2012

All these 'one foot in the grave' gay marriages are really funny. I guess old age activates the romance gene for our fey-geriatric set. I hope they find a vaccination for it before it strikes me. I'd have to pull one out the grave.

I'm dying to hear Robin Roberts' comment. She can't be silent about her coworker coming out and getting married.

Sorry for the double post at r1 & r2. I thought I had done something wrong while posting and it didn't post. I guess I'm just too eager to see myself published.

Considering she is fighting for her life right now, Sam's marriage is the last thing on her mind.

Robin is spending time with her husband,

by Anonymousreply 610/05/2012

She'd have some comment if a het coworker was getting married. Now she'll use the health crisis as an excuse not to say anything. That woman is going to die closeted if it kills her.

It's so brave of him to come out just now. He must have just figured out the truth.

Wonder if Anderson Cooper will skip this wedding like he did Thomas Roberts wedding.

by Anonymousreply 1010/05/2012

She's in the closet therefore a "no count" so let's not give the bitch free publicity on DL.

by Anonymousreply 1110/05/2012

Robin's parents are both now dead, her mother just this summer.

Her sister and brother probably already know so she should go ahead.

Maybe she 'n' Oprah can make it a two-fer.

Sam's husband-to-be is Brazilian!

Atta girl!

On the contrary, R5 - Robin's recovering nicely and her two gay co-stars visited her in the hospital just yesterday - see their photo at the link....

Give it time

I'm such a closet racist, and I apologize to that unneeded and unwarranted comment. I hope my deceased friend Grace will forgive my horribly eveil comment.

you are never happening. ever.

by Anonymousreply 1810/05/2012

Sam's husband is more than Brazilian. He's a hung black Husbear or hbh for short.

by Anonymousreply 1910/05/2012

I am very happy for them. Sam seems like a really nice person and he deserves all the happiness he can get.

Would love to hear what Josh and George had to say.

by Anonymousreply 2010/05/2012

r20, you know Josh and Geo can't post in those awkward positions.

by Anonymousreply 2110/05/2012

The only think shocking would be if Sam announced his engagement to a white woman. Everyone knows he likes black cock.

by Anonymousreply 2210/05/2012

Sam was partnered with Sean Bell for a few years. Someone here (WABC Insider?) said Sam didn't come out because TBTP felt being paired with a black guy wouldn't sit well with viewers in the South.

by Anonymousreply 2310/05/2012

You must read the gma comments. I guess I shouldn't be, but I was surprised at how many people had no idea he was gay.

I wonder if Chris Cuomo is sitting somewhere saying, "Damn, that could have been MINE..."

by Anonymousreply 2510/05/2012

Josh isn't gay. He has womanizing history going back to ESPN days, which is why his wife dumped him. He's now dating Liz Cho (WABC-NY anchor) who's separated from her husband.

by Anonymousreply 2610/05/2012

That Champion guy is one super eldergay. He looks like his well into his 60's in that picture. Oh well, the bloom period is always short lived and Champion has never claimed to be young.

by Anonymousreply 2710/05/2012

When Sam made his debut at WABC in 1990-something, he was young, blonde, a real disco queen.

This video made when he left WABC for GMA shows him from young twink to old queer....

[quote]Josh isn't gay.

Right, his Father was. Very cool video, watch it.

by Anonymousreply 2910/05/2012

Am I thinking of someone else... or didn't he go on and on that he wasn't gay, and was pissed off at all of the internet gossip saying he was?

by Anonymousreply 3010/05/2012

R30, that was Anderson Cooper.

by Anonymousreply 3110/05/2012

I *knew* that was makeup.

I think Ruben is marrying Sam to become a citizen. Oh yeah.

by Anonymousreply 3310/05/2012

You're welcome.

by Anonymousreply 3410/05/2012

No. No. NOOOOOOOOOOO! This CANNOT be true.

by Anonymousreply 3510/05/2012

I bet Sam's betrothed is tired of having to correct all the people who call him RubeN instead of his real name which is RubeM.

Get is straight, everyone...the name is RubeM!

Congrats, guys.

Husband looks a little like Tom Hardy.

Sam Champion is starting to look embalmed--easy on the Botox, girl!

by Anonymousreply 3810/06/2012

Sam's marrying late in life, 51.

by Anonymousreply 3910/06/2012

Good for Sam. He's a complete cheeseball, but it will be much easier to respect him now.

by Anonymousreply 4010/06/2012

Robin Roberts tweeted to congratulate and said she hopes to be well enough to attend.

by Anonymousreply 4110/08/2012

Today GMA staff interviewed Sam with husband-to-be just smiling. When Sam said it's Rubem, not Ruben, Josh commented "he waited about eight months to tell us it's not Ruben." Sam said "He'll take it either way."

Looks like Shawn's been out of the picture since his Bond Street clothing shop closed more than a year ago.

by Anonymousreply 4210/08/2012

Rubem will be called Ruben and fucking like it. He's nothing more than a hot piece of Brazilian trade who's only accomplishment in life is becoming the future Mrs. Sam Champion.

What is it with trash thinking they can put on airs, acting indignant when others treat them with what little respect they deserve? It's actually pretty audacious...

by Anonymousreply 4310/08/2012

What will Ann Romney say when she co-hosts?

by Anonymousreply 4410/08/2012

Presumably she'll attend alone r41, right, because it's not like she has a significant other that she would attend weddings with. At least none that she cares to acknowledge.

by Anonymousreply 4510/08/2012

I always thought Sam and Robin would get married.

by Anonymousreply 4610/08/2012

What r42 described is here. All of the regulars (minus Robin) congratulating Sam and Rubem (seen offstage) during the broadcast this morning.

by Anonymousreply 4710/09/2012

two fugly gays!

by Anonymousreply 4810/09/2012

r43, Rubem had a life before Sam. Unlike our weatherman's last beau, Rubem doesn't need anyone to fund his business ventures.

by Anonymousreply 4910/09/2012

I thought Sam was already out years agin just didn't make a big deal about it? I remember Andy Cohen Outing him years ago when he said Sam was with his boyfriend at some party.

by Anonymousreply 5010/11/2012

Are we sure Sam is gay? Could this be a GMA ratings ploy?

by Anonymousreply 5110/11/2012

Thomas Roberts didn't have many A gays at his wedding. I wonder who will be at Sam's?

[quote]When Sam made his debut at WABC in 1990-something, he was young, blonde, a real disco queen.

Literally! I moved to NYC in the early '90s and developed a massive crush on Sam as soon as I turned on the evening news. Imagine my surprise a few weeks later to see him dancing shirtless on top of a table at the Limelight! I think he may be the first "confirmed-gay" celebrity I ever encountered. I saw him a few more times at clubs (before leaving NYC) but never mustered up the nerve to approach him -- plus it became clear very quickly, observing him at the clubs, that he had a thing for muscular black guys and dark-skinned Latinos, and I'm none of the above.

It's a little sad to see, via R28's video, just how artificial his looks have gotten since his WABC debut. He *was* a natural, hunky blond with great teeth at one point, but now it's clearly all highlights and blindingly white veneers, along with an obvious eye job and copious facial fillers (and possibly cheek implants). He looked particularly bad with his hair grown out a few years back.

Sam said Anderson coming out influenced him.

by Anonymousreply 5410/11/2012

Wow, R54, I seriously had no idea Sam was still closeted!

by Anonymousreply 5510/11/2012

On GMA today it was mentioned that Josh Elliott is living with Sam. Whassup with that?

by Anonymousreply 5610/11/2012

Anderson and Sam have influenced me too, to burrow even deeper into my closet!

by Anonymousreply 5710/11/2012

Maybe nearly dying might convince Robin Roberts to come out.

by Anonymousreply 5810/11/2012

Josh is the next one to come out on GMA, R56, before Robin returns from her sick leave.

It'll be Josh coming out for February sweeps, Robin for the big May sweeps.

They'll save David Muir's coming out for the less-important mid-summer sweeps, and then in September 2013 Diane Sawyer will return to GMA for a "special" announcement.

by Anonymousreply 5910/12/2012

Josh is dating Liz Cho of WABC!

Unfortunately, Josh is a douche and womanizer. He is so full of himself!
