Anthony Clark from "Yes, Dear"

Why didn't he ever come out?

by Anonymousreply 5503/18/2015

If he had come out, it would have ended his prolific TV and movie career.

by Anonymousreply 106/22/2010

Don't forget all the commercial sponsorships, R1.

by Anonymousreply 206/23/2010

And he wouldn't even be able to get booked at The Chuckle Hut in Bumfuck, Iowa.

Rosie accidentally outed him on her radio show a few months ago. They were talking about Mike O'Malley from Glee and trying to recall the sitcom he was on, then tried to recall Anthony's name because he was on the same sitcom. "You know, he was a stand-up, the gay guy from the other show about Boston... you know, the gay guy!"

Once they named Anthony, someone piped up that he wasn't out, so they spit out some "allegedly"s. Whoops.

It's funny that Rosie couldn't remember his name because I remember her interviewing him on her 90's/early 00's show.

Anyway, how can this queen not be out? It was always VERY obvious in both interviews and on his shitty sitcom that he's gay.

Come out? Yech, put him in and nail the door shut.

He's legendary for being one of the meanest drunks in entertainment, and when I met him about ten years ago I found that reputation was well earned.

The title of his recent Showtime special hints at this topic. Did anyone see it?

by Anonymousreply 1103/31/2013

I remember a dozen or more years ago, a National Enquirer story outed him, and at the same time, said he was living like a hoarder.

by Anonymousreply 1303/31/2013

I read it on Datalounge years ago that during Yes, Dear he was moping around, because his military boyfriend was shipped off to Afghanistan or some other military operation that took place at that time.

R12, you're only slightly less tedious than someone who "doesn't even own a TV."

by Anonymousreply 1503/31/2013

R9 Tell us more. Is that why he doesn't get much work now?

by Anonymousreply 1603/31/2013

I always thought he was cute. But then again I like tall and nerdy.

by Anonymousreply 1703/31/2013

So no one's had sex with this guy?

by Anonymousreply 1803/31/2013

He's not gay, just deal.

by Anonymousreply 1903/31/2013

He has a really big schlong.

by Anonymousreply 2003/31/2013

Lol r15.

by Anonymousreply 2103/31/2013

Wasnt there a blind item on here over a decade ago about him lashing out at a co star on his show for outing him in front of her friends

by Anonymousreply 2203/31/2013

Yes R22, and reportedly he used a racial slur.

by Anonymousreply 2303/31/2013

r23: If it was Boston Common, then the actress may be Tasha Smith

by Anonymousreply 2403/31/2013

It was before Yes, Dear if I remember correctly, which would mean Boston Common. And I do believe it was an actress and not an actor that he hurled the N-word at.

by Anonymousreply 2503/31/2013

I also remember reading a BI about a sitcom actor claiming that if his series ever hit #1 in the ratings (or just the top 10, I'm fuzzy on that detail), he'd come out of the closet. This was during the early years of Yes, Dear; it never made it into the top 10.

by Anonymousreply 2803/31/2013

That's why he's not currently a star.

by Anonymousreply 2903/31/2013

I think I caught an episode of that show once and I didn't laugh at all. It was stupid and if he was the husband he seemed wimpy.

by Anonymousreply 3103/17/2015

What moved the black lady to out him?

by Anonymousreply 3203/17/2015

[quote]if he was the husband he seemed wimpy

In a show called "Yes, Dear" -- go figure!

by Anonymousreply 3303/17/2015

I saw him doing his stand up on tv very early in his career and he was hysterical. He pinged then, too.

by Anonymousreply 3403/17/2015

I saw him live at Caroline's in NYC back during the time he was doing Yes Dear. I never laughed so hard in my life. I was also lucky enough to have Jim Gaffigan on the bill too. Both absolutely hysterical.

Anthony Clark cruised me at the bar/lounge at Caroline's after the show----really heavily. But I was there with cousins that night and couldn't break away for a quickie. : - (

I thought he was the guy behind the blind item about a comedy lead bringing a "date" to the set who was an underage boy.

by Anonymousreply 3603/17/2015

I thought it was Grant Shaud, R36.

by Anonymousreply 3703/17/2015

I could have participated in his gangbang.

by Anonymousreply 3803/17/2015

It was Grant Shaud. You're right.

by Anonymousreply 3903/17/2015

I always wondered why he didn't come out. Did he die? I never see him anymore.

by Anonymousreply 4003/17/2015

He's the asshole in the movie theater in "Dogfight", the River Phoenix/Lily Taylor movie right?

by Anonymousreply 4103/17/2015

I always thought he was out. He said something along the lines of why he didnt win Last Comic Standing was because he was too gay. He was being cheeky of course.

by Anonymousreply 4203/17/2015

What is this about Grant Shaud and the underage boyfriend? I never knew he was gay. Didn't he used to date Jane Leeves?

by Anonymousreply 4303/17/2015

I met him in a gay bar in WeHo years ago. After hours, tweaker bar. He kept insisting he wasn't Anthony Clark and he wasn't on Boston Common. (Yeah, that's how long ago it was.)

by Anonymousreply 4403/17/2015

I thought he was adorkable as the dim-witted cowboy in Ellen's '90s sitcom. He guest-starred in four separated episodes during Season 3 as a member of Ellen's book club.

by Anonymousreply 4503/18/2015

R43 Think Leeves dated Jonathan Prince, also tiny. They worked on.."Throb?"

by Anonymousreply 4603/18/2015

Prince and Leeves

by Anonymousreply 4703/18/2015

"Boston Common" was fucking hilarious. Didn't last long though.

And anyone who couldn't tell he was gay from seeing THAT sit-com was blind and deaf.

by Anonymousreply 4803/18/2015

The Landsdowne Street dancing on the roof in Boston Common.

I remember they cancelled it out of the blue, and the series ended with a cliffhanger (about the black lady actress' character getting fired.)

by Anonymousreply 4903/18/2015

R20 is VERY wrong. He sucked me off in the steam at Equinox and his cock was hard as a rock, not large.

I came in his mouth.

by Anonymousreply 5003/18/2015

He was in that terribly awful Peter Paige movie, "Say Uncle", and played Paige's gay best friend. I think there was a kiss in there as well.

"Say Uncle" is a great "hate watching" movie.

by Anonymousreply 5103/18/2015

my friend went to high school with him. said he was horrible even back then. nasty piece of work.

by Anonymousreply 5203/18/2015

Notorious pussyhound and a big Bush supporter.

by Anonymousreply 5303/18/2015

He sounds like Aaron Rodgers which is kind of hot

by Anonymousreply 5403/18/2015

He sucked me off in Nashville back when I was a teenager (he was filming Dogfight). I just wanted to meet River Phoenix.
