Bill Hemmer, 45, bachelor

Gay?

by Anonymousreply 14004/14/2014

Back about ten years ago, his name was mentioned nearly every day on this board. It was generally agreed he was gay. The fact that he's almost never discussed on the DL these days shows how far his star has fallen.

by Anonymousreply 510/07/2010

Does he own a Hummer?

I grew up near him. I always thought he looked like a cross between and Osmond and a cow.

There used to be some Yahoo fan group that would endlessly debate his sexuality and whether or not he had a toupee.

That was back in the days when you'd get an e-mail every time someone would post. I had to leave the group because my mailbox would fill up so fast.

I used to LOVE Bill Hemmer! I tuned into him one day shortly after 9/11, and fell in love. I thought he was gorgeous! And then he went to Fox News. But I don't hate him at all. I felt sorry for the way CNN treated him and I wish him well. I do think he's gay. He lights up around men (especially Jack Cafferty), and I've never seen him light up that way around any female. NEVER. I get the feeling he goes for older men.

by Anonymousreply 1610/07/2010

Cafferty was horrible in his daily commentary about Hillary Clinton during the primaries in 2008, R17. The things he said were sexist and misogynistic.

I think Jack was married once before too, R20. I wouldn't be surprised if he has trouble getting along with women considering the way he views Hillary as the devil incarnate.

Here's a piece Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post did on Hemmer earlier this summer:

"Bill Hemmer, a middle-of-the-road guy from the middle of the country, sees himself as the straightest of straight arrows when it comes to news."

by Anonymousreply 2510/07/2010

R19 and R22, it is possible for a man to love women, respect them, treat them well--and still dislike and distrust Hillary Clinton, and express that distaste freely.

by Anonymousreply 2610/07/2010

Buried in that article are two interesting tidbits - one about a weekend home in Sag Harbor and that his life's next goal has "to include children".

No mention of including a wife.

He always seemed gay, but at the same time, he's a high profile media personality (yes, Fox is still considered high profile) and not one one person knows anyone who's ever hooked up with him, been cruised by him (and not just wishful thinking), etc. How can you be in that NYC fishbowl with no one ever having a story on you?

This is my favorite part from R25's link:

"At times his Midwestern upbringing is all too evident. During the recent airing of a much-bleeped audiotape from the trial of former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, Hemmer visibly blanched and looked embarrassed about the excised expletives".

That's what I was going to say, R32.

If he were straight, it would be apparent that he's straight. %0D %0D Of course, we can't be certain, but usually when someone's sexual orientation is a big question mark, then it's usually because he or she is hiding something.%0D %0D This is a especially the case when that person is of a "certain age," and people are still wonderiong if he or she is attracted to members of the opposite sex.

He's VERY Catholic.%0D %0D And, on a separate note, I did see him playing the role of "perfect uncle" one Sunday in Manhattan. It was Easter Sunday, but that is only coincidental to my comment about him being VERY CATHOLIC.

by Anonymousreply 3910/07/2010

I met him late this summer in a casual, laid back environment, with his girlfriend, who's a dark-haired model, whose name I've forgotten. Others in the group/event knew her.

I watched them together over the course of 2-3 days. They seemed naturally affectionate.

My friend all insist I see gay men where no one else does-- I've been out for 40 years-- but I got NO gay vibe from him.

Not that that will stop the endless speculation on DL.

R34, unless a guy is an actor, model or athlete, there aren't usually shirtless pics just haning around.

by Anonymousreply 4110/08/2010

r41, in an age where everyone carries a camera (cell phone) with them at all times, a celeb can be caught shirtless at the beach, at the pool, in the locker-room, sunning on his lawn.

I had a shirtless beach picture of him on my old computer. It was from six or seven years ago.

True, R42, but actors and athletes are far more likely to have shirtless photos of them out there than a news anchor

Jack Cafferty hit a bicyclist and kept driving a few years ago. Guess there was no sobriety test.

by Anonymousreply 4510/08/2010

He's a Scorpio which explains a lot. My ex was a Scorpio. Boyscout on the outside ...secretive bastard on the inside.

I read the Sextrology on Scorpios and Hemmer is probably gay. Gay Scorpios are extremely secretive, top until they meet the right older man which takes them a while, and then become bottoms. They are not ashamed of being gay, however are extraordinarily private and don't feel their private life is anyone's business. BUT once they meet the right guy, everyone will know. But Hemmer being in the spotlight, may not let everyone know.

R40 is so transparent. You can always tell when they justify what they're saying by explaining how unusual it is for them to protect whoever it is they're defending.

by Anonymousreply 4610/08/2010

I wasn't aware that astrology could tell us so many things about someone's sexuality, R46, including whether or not a guy is a top or a bottom.

"[R40] is so transparent. You can always tell when they justify what they're saying by explaining how unusual it is for them to protect whoever it is they're defending."

This was not at all an "unusual" situation, but simply one where few or no cameras were on-- and there were other well-known celebs present-- so there was no reason for him and the chick to "put on a show."

I'm a longtime celeb journalist and have fairly reliable or eyewitness evidence of those who actually are gay. Meanwhile, you can continue to fetishize those whom you WISH were gay.

Didn't Hemmer briefly date Kim Guilfoyle, the ex-wife of Gavin Newsome, the Mayor of San Francisco? And then she quickly married someone else. Didn't want to beard, eh?

r60, so if someone isn't married or have kids by the age of 45 they are automatically gay? You can't be serious, not in this day and age when being single and childless is fully acceptable. This is the 21st century is it not?

by Anonymousreply 6510/09/2010

That's not what I said. Pay attention. All I said was that the large majority of straight guys today are still married or have kids by age 45.

I didn't say it guarantees he is gay. I'm just saying it is a possibility.

There is an equal possibility he is straight, too. Marriage and/or having children prove nothing one way or the other these days. Being single is perfectly acceptable these days.

A wholesome, family oriented Roman Catholic, whose mother groomed him for the priesthood, Hemmer would be married by now if he were straight. End of story.

The reason he covers his ass is because it is rather larger than it should be.

Bill used to be weekend sports anchor at our station WCPO in Cincinnati. He was then made a features reporter and his last assignment was a round the world trip - with his male best friend - where he did reports for the station. He and the male best friend were shown huddling together in the cold atop the Himmalayas, tenting together in the South American rain forests, etc. He was gone A YEAR to do this thing and away from civilization for the most part, so.... it's nice to have your best friend around you in those situations.

[quote]There is an equal possibility he is straight, too. Marriage and/or having children prove nothing one way or the other these days. Being single is perfectly acceptable these days.

It is not a question of it being accepted or "acceptable." It is more a matter that most guys have found a spouse by the time they reach 45. Not that staying single isn't a valid option -- it is. But, the chances are that most males who are 45 and have never been married are probably gay. There are exceptions, without a doubt, but it doesn't seem accurate to say that it is an "equal possibility" that he is straight. At the age of 25 his unmarried status would be insignificant. But, by the age of 45, his lack of a spouse is far more significant.

I'm not saying that he's gay or that it proves that he is gay, but it is not fair to simply dismiss out of hand his marital status as having no predictive value. In many cases it does, and it might in his also.

He comes from a conservative Catholic family. They would have a hard time accepting he is gay. He may be so deeply closeted that he may think he is straight even though he enjoys gay sex. Not an uncommon form of denial Doubt he would ever come to terms with being gay. Unfortunate that being honest with himself and his family is so hard.
