is there someone who can do a brief timeline. why do so many think all the songs are about "julia" when they are apparently all about "kristen"? who came when/point in her writing or song writing

by Anonymousreply 812/04/2010

She and Julia broke up in early 2005, and she started dating Kristin shortly thereafter. She and Kristin broke up around New Years 2005/06, and after that she started writing the songs for this current album.

I think a lot of people think the songs are about Julia, because all she ever talks about is Julia.

by Anonymousreply 912/04/2010

Call me a romantic but I am going to suggest Heavenly Days and Shadow of Doubt are about Julia and everything else refers to Kristen or Chely herself.

Can someone tell us why CAM is so upset with Chely if she is indeed prone to spill when she is drinking? It would seem that Chely has been very careful to be respectful, almost protective, of CAM.

Chely did date Mindy Smith for a minute, but Mindy has substance abuse problems and was emotionally unstable. Many on the inner circle in Nashville know that Chely (even after they stopped dating) tried to be a stable force in Mindy's life when Mindy was attempting to become clean and sober. Chely even had Mindy doing healthy things and exercising. But Mindy Smith is Mindy Smith. She fell off the wagon and snapped emotionally. Everyone in Nashville knows that Mindy is crazy. No one can help her. As far as the Ashly girl goes, I know that she and Chely spent time together, but they were NEVER girlfriends. ALthough Ashly wanted to be.

So who is Terri's "sweetheart"? Interesting, because I've never really thought she was gay. Just a straight girl who pinged, but I'm beginning to wonder.%0D %0D I thought it was interesting she declared herself a Joan Jett fan on Facebook. COnsidering I'm seeming to remember she also likes the Indigo Girls and Shelby Lynne, it's almost like she's doing her best to peg herself as a lez without actually coming out.%0D %0D We'll see, considering her Mom has recently died, maybe she'll decide to go the Chely route. I know coming out to my Mom was always the thing I most dreaded.

by Anonymousreply 3112/08/2010

Looking at their astrological charts, it seems that Chely Wright and Lauren Blitzer are a much better match than "Chely-Julia" or "Chely-Kristen". (I looked at astrological charts for all 4 ladies including synastry charts and composite charts) Based on their astrological charts, I see a mutually supportive, long term relationship between Chely and Lauren. Projected transits and progressions do show some challenges ahead over the next two years, but both women share a very deep sense of responsibility toward each other. Both ladies share Sun-Moon and Moon-Sun compatibility in Water-Earth. Niether has any personal planets in fire signs. Both ladies have powerful stelliums in opposing signs Scorpio-Taurus. Benefic planets are involved in this opposition and it is a very stimulating relationship. There are a number of very close to exact aspects between the two charts. In the composite chart there are no negative aspects. There is a notable difference in how the ladies process in a mental sense. Chely's mind is sharp, deep and focused. Lauren's mind might not be as deep, but she is very intelligent and she is certain to know at least something about nearly everything and everyone. Lauren is also more attractive than either "Julia" or "Kristen", but of course none of the ladies are as attractive as Chely. Chely and Lauren look like a good match from my perspective, and I do wish them well.

by Anonymousreply 3412/09/2010

It's not about agreeing or disagreeing.

Well-rounded astro charts have birth times--and unless you are the personal astrologer to Kristen, Julia, Chely & Lauren, you prob. don't have the times.

by Anonymousreply 3512/09/2010

@RT35, Are you an experienced astrologer?

by Anonymousreply 3612/09/2010

@RT33, I am going to cut to the chase and point out that it seems you might be trying to figure out if I am someone's personal astrologer who has spilled the beans on their clients. The answer is no and no. I have also not personally met any of these people but I have seen some very clear photos of all them, so my assessment of who is "best-looking" does have an objective basis. of course they were all beautiful to Chely, after all she was/is in love with them. I did some serious public records digging and I really do have birth charts for all four ladies, so I have everything I need to make a decent astrological analysis. In my next post I will include some very basic planet-sign astrological data on all four ladies. It will be enough for even an amateur astrologer to determine that of the three ladies, Lauren is probably the best match for Chely. Hopefully this will not be so much occult information as to make the (appreciated and respected) subjects of this thread feel too uncomfortable, but still enough for readers to enjoy.

by Anonymousreply 3712/09/2010

%0D %0D I personally adhere to Ptolemy's view of astrology: "Useful information can be obtained from the art" but astrology's synchronous parallel correlation does not have the same power as linear causality or the observable objective facts. (my paraphrase) Ptolemy used astrology as an adjunct to all known observable facts in his analysis. I completely agree with Ptolemy on this and I strongly suggest that anyone who reads this post do the same. %0D %0D There is much more to an astrological analysis than just basic planet-sign data like that presented below and there is much, much more to an intimate relationship than an astrological chart.%0D %0D I did not include everything I have here, but hopefully I have provided enough so that most people with at least some astrology skills will have sufficient information to make some general assessments. %0D %0D What is immediately apparent from the data below is the mutual interchange of Moon-Sun and Sun-Moon, Earth-Water elements between Chely and Lauren. This indicates a mutual support between the two ladies. The same sense of mutual support is not present when Chely's Moon-Sun elements are compared to the Moon-Sun elements of either "Kristin" or "Julia". %0D %0D There is quite a bit more to be gleaned from the very basic information below, and I invite the astrologically inclined readers of this post to do so. %0D %0D %0D Chely Wright, 40: Moon-Virgo, Sun-Scorpio, Mercury-Scorpio, Venus-Scorpio, Mars-Libra, Jupiter-Scorpio, Saturn-Taurus, Uranus-Libra, Neptune-Scorpio, Pluto-Virgo, North Node-Pisces%0D %0D Lauren Blitzer, 29: Moon-Cancer, Sun-Taurus, Mercury-Gemini, Venus-Taurus, Mars-Taurus, Jupiter-Libra, Saturn-Libra, Uranus-Scorpio, Neptune-Saggitarius, Pluto-Libra, North Node- Leo%0D %0D "Kiristin", 34: Moon-Taurus, Sun-Gemini, Mercury-Taurus, Venus-Gemini, Mars-Leo, Jupiter-Taurus, Saturn-Cancer, Uranus-Scorpio, Neptune-Saggitarius, Pluto-Libra, North Node-Scorpio%0D %0D "Julia", 44: Moon-Leo, Sun-Capricorn, Mercury-Capricorn, Venus-Aquarius, Mars-Aquarius, Jupiter-Gemini, Saturn-Pisces, Uranus-Virgo, Neptune-Virgo, Pluto-Virgo, North Node-Gemini

by Anonymousreply 5012/13/2010

Terri Clark is the biggest lesbian around and she's gotten married at least twice to cover it up. She's a phony and she's extremely jealous of the attention that Chely got for coming out. But you can't have it both ways, Ms. Clark. You can't try so hard to hide then on the other hand be jealous of someone who actually had the courage to tell the WHOLE truth. I think Chely decided in 2007 to come out and she's worked really hard to do it WRIGHT. I doubt that if Terri Clark comes out, she'll tell the WHOLE truth like Chely so painstakingly did in her book. She admitted the damage she did to others, she admitted her lies and her (as she says) crimes against others and herself. Terri won't do that. Mark my word. She's got too many skeletons in her closet and if she comes out, all of the skeletons will come out and start talking too.

I call it an LTR. This is an important relationship for both of them. Lauren has matured and Chely is a very high quality person. They both have something to learn from each other. In the last paragraph of the Dec. 01 posting of "I Advocate" at Advocate dot com Chely talks about the program "The Good Wife". The last sentence states that "My household never misses an episode". A "household" is never just one person.

How do I know any of it is the truth? You mean in Chely's book? She didn't actually paint a perfect portrait of herself. She admitted lies and infidelity and other harm she did to people. Have you read the book. It all makes sense to me. She doesn't trash talk anyone, really. Except for a couple of people and she doesn't even spend alot of time on them and you can't tell who she's talking about anyway. Honestly, she tells on herself alot. I don't know Chely well, I met her a few times on Music Row, but alot of people like her and respect her for telling the whole truth. Could YOU do it?

I don't think you ever know a celebrity. At all. I've met plenty in "normal life" and they are very different from their outer persona. Usually guarded and often pretty boring. There's always the occasional asshole but Chely strikes me as someone who doesn't take the celebrity thing too seriously. A little on the melodramatic side--

Still wondering what happened between Chely and Ashen Keilyn. Read somewhere on DL that they never dated but that Ashen wanted to. If they were just "friends" then why would they remove all trace of each other from their twitter and facebook accounts.

Ashen performed in NYC on Dec 1st. Wonder if Chely and crew went to watch? Where's the insiders when we need them?????

by Anonymousreply 6712/15/2010

R67 , until your insider feels inspired to post I offer the following for you to ruminate upon:%0D %0D While in-person, objective observation is the last word on this, an astrological analysis does show a close and meaningful connection between Chely and Ashen but there is a also a certain basic elemental incompatibility. Ashen has no personal planets in water signs and Chely has a powerful water sign stellium in Scorpio. Chely is very sensitive and powerfully tuned into even the most subtle emotional vibes but Ashen with her Air-Earth personal planets is less tuned into emotional subtleties. Both have Mercury in fixed, stubborn signs Scorpio-Taurus and of course two stubborn minds together can hit a thick wall when disagreements arise. The Venus-Venus opposition is in orb and is a classic indication of a social or romantic attraction. The close Mars-Mars trine is also a classic indication of sexual attraction, but in friendships it is expressed as harmonious activity like working together or appreciating each other's goals. In this case Ashen's Mars is also in orb to an opposition to Chely's Venus and this is a classic indication of sexual-romantic attraction as well as hurt feelings. The two Suns oppose within a degree and Ashen's Jupiter closely conjuncts Chely's Sun-Mercury. Based upon this, it seems Ashen and Chely really do like each other and there appears to be a certain warm, expansive encouraging feeling here. However Ashen's Libra Moon does not closely link up degree-wise with any of Chely's personal planets. For harmonious living together relationships, basic elemental and mutual Moon-Sun compatiblity or Moon-Sun interchanges are very important. %0D %0D While keeping in mind what I said earlier at R38 , here are just the basics:%0D %0D Ashen Keilyn, 40: Moon-Libra, Sun-Taurus, Mercury-Taurus, Venus-Taurus, Mars-Gemini, Jupiter-Scorpio, Saturn-Taurus, Uranus-Libra, Neptune-Saggitarius, Pluto-Virgo, North Node-Pisces%0D %0D Chely Wright, 40: Moon-Virgo, Sun-Scorpio, Mercury-Scorpio, Venus-Scorpio, Mars-Libra, Jupiter-Scorpio, Saturn-Taurus, Uranus-Libra, Neptune-Scorpio, Pluto-Virgo, North Node-Pisces

R69 , I am not sure if your request for info is directed at me or not. Are you asking for more detailed astrological analysis of Chely and Lauren? I am not an insider and that is all I can offer. If so, what information do you want me to include?%0D %0D By the way, it really is possible to have a Lesbian relationship without drama, trauma and bullshit. This depends more upon the personal, psychological and spiritual development of the people involved. Nevertheless, astrological analysis can still offer some useful, interesting information about the potential quality of a relationship.

by Anonymousreply 7112/16/2010

R69 , While I am not entirely certain you were referring to more Astrological info on Chely and Lauren, I do offer some below:%0D %0D If you want to avoid dysfunctional relationships it is important to avoid dating dysfunctional people. Lauren's chart has no squares or oppositions between her personal planets and this indicates good genetics and a certain self-confidence as well as a notable lack of internal conflict. Chely's chart shows a similar pattern. With regard to the elements, between them they both share a harmonious Water-Earth-Air configuration. Also, as I stated earlier at R32 , their composite chart shows no negative aspects. A challenge they both share is Venus opposed by outer planets. This indicates a challenging experience that forces people to raise their consciousness about the meaning of relationships. Lauren has Venus opposition Uranus, and this can indicate someone who has had shocking and upsetting relationships that ended in an abrupt and impersonal way. It indicates Lauren faced a challenge to reconcile her personal relationship needs with a need for willful independence. Lauren's Venus-Uranus opposition overlays Chely's Venus-conjunction-Neptune-opposition-Saturn configuration. With Venus conjunct Neptune Chely is very idealistic about relationships and with Saturn-opposition-Venus, relationships are very important to her. This configuration also indicates that she has been disillusioned (Neptune) and frustrated (Saturn) in relationships(Venus). Some say that Saturn-opposition-Venus is a Karmic configuration indicating too much attachment to other people. When the charts are put together, and when the trine and sextile aspects to this configuration are considered, there is a sense of tolerance(Jupiter), responsibility(Saturn), love(Venus) and support(Moon) present that alleviates the otherwise negative expectations normally associated with Venus-opposition outer planets. %0D %0D I am perfectly capable of going into more detail about other areas like romantic styles and interaction, mental processes and communication, and more, but I will only do so if others here indicate that they actually want to read this sort of thing. %0D %0D Not everyone has an interest in Astrology and some here only seem interested in first hand, objective information. %0D %0D Whatever the case, when reading the above, please keep in mind what I said earlier at R38 .

Someone in one of the earlier Chely Wright DL threads asked for astrological information on CW and LB and the only reply I saw stated something to the effect that it was "sex, sex, sex" and would blow over. I don't agree with that and I think Lauren is a good choice. It might not be an obvious choice to most people, but from my perspective this match up looks much better than match ups with any of Chely's previous girlfriends that I charted. I probably should have inserted "neither Chely or Lauren are fundamentally dysfunctional" as the third sentence in my post at R73 . It seems that some here might have read that post incorrectly. What I was trying to point out is that there are some other aspects in the chart comparison that mitigate what would otherwise be considered negative factors. This can make what looks like an unlikely match-up run much smoother that you might expect. These two people are comfortable with each other and share some archetypical similarities in their life experience. Both of them have had a rough time in the romance department and both of them have had early but ironically blunted success in their public careers. People learn similar things from these kinds of experiences and it can put them on the same wavelength. In my very first DL post at R32 my objective was counter the naysayers who saw Lauren as a step on the road to better things. I see Chely and Lauren as a good combination and also as a long term item.

R79 , I so totally understand your view of Astrology as "Mumbo Jumbo". 33 years ago I said exactly the same thing and with great confidence, I set out to prove that it was all not only just "Mumbo Jumbo" but was in fact "total and absolute bullshit". My conclusion: I was wrong and so are you.

eally R80, a sex tape!! Of course I cannot produce that, but I am quite capable of expanding on even the most erotically secretive couple's "romantic styles and interaction" with enough insight and detail to make them feel very exposed and very uncomfortable. No "eye in the keyhole" is needed. I do not agree with the simplistic Scorpio-Taurus interpretation I saw earlier. This particular case is rather more complicated than that. I can write on such matters very politely, and at least some here would find it interesting reading. However, it has been made clear to me that taking this discussion in that direction is not appreciated, so I agreed to stop at that point.

"So if you are obsessed, or even mildly fascinated, essentially you have been seduced. This is strictly business however, and the objective is more sales."

I understand what you are saying, but I disagree to a certain extent. I realize this is the goal in making fans and money, especially if you work in PR management where all it's about is sales, but she seems to be (seems, because I do not know her, never met her and will never meet her), as though she IS genuine. Have you ever written about yourself in a book - in a way that is going to be scoffed at by anti-gay conservatives? The person I read about in that book was not "seducing" me. That person made me reflect upon my own experience and feel a stronger connection to humanity. Is she trying to push sales now? WHY NOT? If you wrote a book, wouldn't you?

I don't write much around here and yes, there are obsessed fans on all the boards, but posters who seem to think that Chely is just pushing for the sake of greed, I hope you will lose some of the bitterness.

by Anonymousreply 11912/20/2010

R119 , The person you read about in that book did in fact seduce you in a broader sense of the term. %0D %0D Chely's book is a beautifully and artfully written act of seduction in the sense that it draws people in and affects people on a very deep level. It skillfully touches a wide range of emotions page after page. %0D %0D There is nothing wrong with this and I have no doubt she is genuine. It is apparent to me that part of her reason for coming out in such a public and carefully managed way stems from her own sense of injustice at an ignorant and uninformed society that forces nice Christian gay ladies to hide. If the world were a better place, she might not have suffered such a dysfunctional romantic life, and she would have never put that gun in her mouth.%0D %0D If more of the obsessed fans were conscious of the mechanics of the artful seduction I described above, they could have processed Chely in a more rational way. %0D %0D It is not healthy to become obsessed with a celebrity at the expense of your own self-interests. Chely herself is almost one-pointedly focused on her own affairs, and this is what a person must do in order to be successful.

R111 Thanks for explaining Fanscape. I can now see why Cam / Julia didn't like Chely's career. Chely really seems into all the bullshit publicity. %0D I think it's pretty sad if LB's and CW's twitter posts are all for fan consumption. Chely actually planned this? What did she do, ask LB to agree to tweet with her to keep the fans interested? Sounds pathetic. Why would Lauren agree to that unless she loves publicity like Chely.%0D It's too bad. I like certain things about Chely, but there is a side to her that seems quite unlikable - she's melodramatic and self-obsessed.%0D I keep thinking of the video o youtube of her performing on the Olivia Cruise and Chely says near the end "I'm not as sweet as you think I am." No, I guess she's not.%0D

by Anonymousreply 12112/20/2010

Honestly R121, Chely and Lauren hardly Tweet one another at all. You sound unbalanced and unreasonably angry with Chely and quite jealous. Chely's comment on the Olivia Cruise was refreshing. I was there. She was basically being worshiped by thousands of lesbians and it was cute how she said that about not being as sweet as everyone thought she was. It was very human and real of her. Chely is cool and real and you can't stand it. You need to get off of her message boards and go get a life, IMO.

R122 It was R111 who said Lb's and CW's tweets were all for fan consumption. If true, then that's pathetic. At one point they were tweeting each other while in the same house. I am not the only one here who thought that was weird.%0D It's not that I can't stand Chely, as I said I like her but there is a publicity loving side to her that is unlikeable. The hiring of that Hollywood publicist, was that really necessary? She's done a ton of interviews, gay pride parades (as grand marshall - which one website said she paid to be grand marshal - or perhaps it was that publicist she hired who paid), a memoir (did she warn her ex that she was publiching it?), a cd, a documentary (why the need for a documentary?), twitter, Facebook, website, Likeme t-shirts , forums, etc. I understand she wants/needs to sell her book and cd's but I think she goes a little overboard at times. %0D Actually, I have only gone to Chely's facebook a few times since June, and usually when someone here at DL comments on something said over there. I do read her twitter page, though.%0D You sound a little overly defensive of Chely - perhaps it is you who is obsessed with her and maybe you should stay off her message boards.

That would be "Julia"/CAM. Julia was married to a man who didn't seem to mind that she and Chely were more than friends. Years later they divorced and she and Chely got back together.

In the book, Chely called Julia the love of her life. There is another chapter near the end of the book where Chely ambiguously expresses desire to get back together with Julia but she knows that there are so much roadblocks to get past.

When she wrote the book, Lauren was not on her radar, of course.

Reba McEntire Blake Shelton Brad Paisley Miranda Lambert Pink Lady Antebellum Martina McBride Christina Aguliera Rosanne Cash Kristin Chenoweth

Hmmm, Someone's awfully hard on Chely. (sarcasm) R124, It's also widely know that Chely has given a lot of her money, made from these Grand Marshall/LGBT events, directly to PFLAG, GLSEN and GLAAD. Your argument is not holding water. And no, I don't work for her and am not in any way in her camp. I've never even met her.

They're ALL stars and they ALL have charisma. And a celebrity can't be blamed for the way that fans attach themselves to them. i.e. Hinkley/Jodie Foster. She didn't "do" anything to pull him in... she was just being who she is and Hinkley got lost in it like R133 is lost in Chely. That's my take.

I'm a virgin here on DL. In fact, this is my first post. I'm still trying to understand how to reply to a particular post. Anyway, I just wanted to post my two cents. I saw Chely at Joe's Pub in NYC, whereas I got a chance to meet and talk with her and Lauren (and Chuck, the best friend) after the show. They were all just hanging out in the lobby. All three very approachable and very nice. It was obvious Chely and Lauren were a couple, they are very affectionate with one another. %0D %0D Actually, it was quite funny, I kept staring at Chuck knowing that I recoginzed his face from somewhere, but couldn't think how I could possible know him, when I apporached him to ask if I looked familiar we began chatting. Turned out we grew up in the same state/neighborhood. LOL, I didn't realize that when I was reading the book. Too funny. Anyway, there most definately is an age difference with CW and LB. - you have to wonder if and when that could become an issue. As for me, I wish them the best, they really did seem sweet together.

We talked about her living in NYC and how different it was for her compared to Nashville, but how she really liked it. At that time I believe she was living somewhere in the Village, I belive now, she has moved, not sure where, probably upper east or west side. Much nicer areas. We talked about restaurants we like in the city, we talked a little bit about her show, I told her how much I enjoyed it, she said how much she likes doing the smaller type shows, where she can connect to the audience better. The pub was small, and we had great seats, right in front of her. She really was very personnable during the show. What surprised me is that she was very funny as well. She sang some, told stories, realted back to her book, and joked with the audience. She really was very entertaining considering the ticket was so reasonable. I think under $20.00. This was the first time I had met her, I had purchased her CD and read her book. Seeing her in person and getting to talk with her seemed like just chatting with a friend. No body guards or crew or groupies around... very comfortable. Not to mention, in person she truly is striking. Bearutiful features.%0D %0D I hope her future tours include NYC again, I would for certain see her again. Very talented, her voice sounded great. Not a lot of "band" to back her up, so her voice really stood out.

R153 If you are referring to the blogspot site, it looks like she has not been to it since Oct. She's only posted 4 blogs total anyway, not sure what all the lunch with lulu blog hype is about. Never read LB's book, really liked Chely's though. I met Chely on a whim, she happened to be doing a signing in the next town over from mine, so I figured why not meet the new hot lesbian on the block and see what she had to say? Hadn't read the book yet, bought the CD to support the LGBT artist when she came out but hadn't listened to it (though I am a fan of country music). I went as a Chely Wright virgin. I'm not usually into celebrities, had always found it funny that people get so excited about meeting someone "famous". Anyway, Miss Wright was amazing. I agree with R119 , Chely had this charisma unmatched by anyone I've ever met in my life while maintaining that girl next door appeal. When meeting her I felt like she was just one of my friends that I could shoot the breeze with, she seemed genuine. The whole hocking the merch, promoting the CD, T-shirts, etc. I think it's just part of the beast of the industry. If she wants to continue to make changes in society, she has to some way remain "relevant". If you go to her Likeme website, it seems like there are many people who live in the bumbles who have been helped by her story, I guess it is all worth it if she makes life easier for some people.

Thanks R155 . I feel like Chely's book/story, coming out and her drive inspired me to do more for the community. I have been comfortable with my sexuality for more than half of my life now, my wife and I have been together for close to a decade and we have the time and financial means to try and do some good in this world. I feel Chely's message lit a fire under my butt because I feel I grew up in a gay lala land. I spent most of my life near NYC and Philly, and didn't come from a religious upbringing. I had always been under the impression, there was always a place nearby to escape to, and for me there was. I always knew if my family didn't accept me, I could go to plan B and move into the city (20 min away) and keep on going. I know it was very naive of me to just assume every other gay person had just as many options. I used to think, why the heck don't people who are gay in the Midwest just move to a more accepting area? I tend to forget, finding jobs, leaving family, and lack of financial means all come into play. I understand why Chely had to move to NYC to fully do what she had to do, IMO there is no better place than NYC to just "be". It's a place where no one gives a crap who you are or what you are doing, (as long as you don't get in their way). Since seeing Chely at her book signing, I started an online QSA for my former HS, went to the school to make sure they had GLSEN's safe space program started (they had). I signed up to volunteer at the local LGBT center in my town and my wife and I plan to donate more to LGBT charities this year. More people with the ability to help should take a page out of Chley's book and try to give back in some way to our LGBT brothers and sisters who don't have it as good as some of us already do. OK, now, back to the important stuff...anyone else have any good gossip?

So is being closeted, isn't it? Or living in Nashville's environs. If Chely just accepted everything that the industry requires, she never would have come out. She has shown she can choose.

Thank you R130 and R165, I agree, though I am inspired by Chely and found her likable in person, the more I follow Twitter and Facebook the more I too am torn on my feelings. I did roll my eyes and scoff a little when the second "goal" for the indy film came out. At some point it just feels like you are being milked for gay dollars. I think I chock the over the top fund raising up to over zealousness and excitement in making change. Think about it, Chely is 40 yrs old. She has only fully admitted she is gay like 7 months ago. I bet a lot of repressed guilt is behind the fervor she is now exhibiting. Also, even though she was out to some people a few years ago, this year is really her coming out year. Who of us in our early gay years didn't shout it from the roof tops, slap on a rainbow belt, and practically throw ourselves a parade thankful to be free of the pressure of staying in the closet? I am thankful Chely came out, she gave a new public face to the lesbian community. She has made a difference, but overall, I doubt I will be making a big contribution to her Likeme org at this time. For me, it's just too new and I have more ties with organizations that relate to me on a more personal level. Don't get me wrong, I still think she is doing great things for people. Stand up as a "gay American" who looks like the girl next door in my opinion makes gay a lot more acceptable in Middle America. That alone makes her a winner in my book. She's basically telling thousands of people in the bible belt who have liked her for years, this is who I am, you liked me then, I too am a Christian, why not still like me and while you're at it, like others like me too.

I understand what you are saying R170.%0D %0D I think Chely sincerely wants to be a good person, but it seems that she has failed to recognize that lying with her emotional nature is just as wrong as lying with words. %0D %0D Many people are unable to put their finger on exactly what it is that gives them those "mixed feelings" but when they become conscious of it some of them can get really offended.%0D %0D I am fully aware of the issue here, and I do not feel overly offended. I do recognize Chely as a basically decent human being. %0D %0D However, in my personal life I do not associate with people who manipulate me either emotionally or socially in an attempt to get me to do what they want.%0D %0D Chely is not a part of my personal life. She is simply a somewhat distant celebrity that I do appreciate. %0D %0D Yes, Chely I will buy your next record,%0D So there is absolutely no need for Fanscape people to run me (or others) off the board. %0D %0D

ok, is it me or do others think it is in poor taste to be asking for money to help finance Chely's documentary? First it was a goal of $20,000, now it's another $50,000. Seems a bit in poor taste if you ask me.%0D %0D CD's / Books / Films / Interviews / TV appearances / Merchandise / etc. Chely "fever" will not last forever... at some point this too shall fade. I'm sure Chely and her camp realize this, and are trying to stretch these 15 minutes as best they can.

Where are you getting your info from R111? I looked on Fanscape's site and they seem to only work with big brands. Could Chely really afford them? It seems her label has given up on any kind of marketing to spend any money and I doubt they're working for free.%C2%A0

R175 R177, why should we expect celebrities and the people who date them to not try to promote themselves? Isn't that how you maintain "celebrity" or acquire it? It seems like it just goes along with the job. Why get annoyed about it? Asking for donations for an indie film, I'm not sure how those things typically work when it comes to funding so I have no comment either way. Anyone in the biz able to fill us in? The way I look at it, even if Chely looses her major fan base in the country community, she already seems to have built up quite a regular following in the previously established LGBT community, not to mention all her newbie out gays who gained courage from her to start the coming out process. I'm sure she will do just fine if she continues to play small venues around the country or if she teams up with other groups like she did recently with the Indigo Girls. Also, I think this promotion of her relationship in a cutesy type way by slowly promoting the girlfriend and by incorporating her in her tweets to Kristen Chenoweth makes the whole thing less threatening to those who follow her who are straight or new to the whole gay thing. I'm waiting for the day when she becomes a bit less sweet and tells us what she really feels. It seems like she is still holding back.

R176 , I know nothing of the financial side of this . I am however, 100% certain Chely is a client of Fanscape.

R179 are there really fans out there who think celebs get a following by just being themselves? I'm sure it does happen but I'd assume it's pretty rare. Plus, after people such as, for example, youtube celebs are discovered, I bet they team up right quick. Of course it takes a team of people to survey the market to promote someone or some group. I guess the animosity that has been voiced on this site stems from the fact that though most of us post anonymously, we feel our openly public discussion should in no way be manipulated, read, surveyed or discussed as part of a study of fans wants or needs. How dare they take advantage of public posts and forums like that? The nerve!

LOL R185 . If you go back over the threads you can see where a poster who was having trouble expressing their "Mixed feelings" about Chely was run off the board. Unfortunately this person was a fan whose only real problem was that they could not put their finger on what it was about Chely that made them uneasy. If you read from my post at R111 you can get a better idea. Also, an apparently well-meaning astrologer was run off the board. Some posters from a earlier closed thread were curious about astrological info and apparently it hit too close to home. The attack made the phrase "she protests too much, methinks" come to mind. If you have time, the whole thread might be worth reading from the beginning and in order.

I'm new to DL. I googled Chely Wright and Lauren Blitzer because I'm a stalker. Bygones. Lesbian Detective appears. Heres my story. I'm a 19 yr old college student. I've always struggled with my sexuality and hated myself for being gay. Out of nowhere, my dad and stepmother asked me if I was a lesbian because if I was, I would not be allowed in their house. My stepmother was all to eager in packing my belongings. I've not talked to them in over 10 months. I'm renting a room and barely making ends meet. A lady from church gave me Chely's book and told me not to tell anyone. I started reading it that afternoon and couldn't put it down. It was unreal how I related to Chely's words. Figuratively speaking, Chely saved my life. I had no gay friends, no family, I just felt like I had no one. But Chely gave me hope and seriously, for the first time I felt peace. I went to an event of Chely's and she signed my book. She looked at me and talked to me like she's known me forever. I told her a little about myself and she teared up. I didn't want her pity but that's not how she made me feel. She simply cared. Period. Why? I'm a nobody to her. I don't have any money to buy her cd's, books, whatever. She knows that but she still cared about me. Months later I go to another event. I swear to God, she remembered my name!!! I'm just your ordinary looking, nothing special type person and she remembered me! And yes, while we were talking she addressed me by name several times AND I LOVED IT!! I'm very shy and it was hard to look at her when she talked to me. She took my hand and gave me some encouraging words. Everytime I would look down she would squeeze my hand so I'd look back at her. She was so kind and so warm. I needed that. She gave me a hug and I almost broke down in tears. I made it to my car and had a meltown. I sobbed uncontrollably. I haven't felt that much love since my mother passed away 8 years ago. I'm telling this because while reading some of these posts, I didn't understand some of the negativity. I'm sure Chely's not perfect but I know without a doubt she is genuine. I'm not fanscape or part of Chely's team. I'm simply telling my truth.%0D %0D %0D %0D %0D %0D %0D %0D %0D %0D

What is wrong with you people? How genuine has Reba McEntire been toward you? Would you question her sincerity? Chely isn't your best friend, she's a celebrity with a fan base and I'd say she serves them very well. You all are a bunch of weirdos. The Fanscape people are saying that they don't work for her and so what if they did? Levis advertises their jeans, Chevy advertises their cars... why wouldn't a celebrity advertise her brand? I met Chely 5 years ago at a Wal-Mart instore and she spent so much time with me, my girlfriend and our two kids. She was very nice and stayed nearly 2 hours longer than she was scheduled. Never took a break and treated the last person like they were the first in line. No, I don't work for her. No, I'm not in her fan club. Any my nephew is an indie film maker and he told me this morning and it's the usual to raise money on-line to finish indie films. That's why sites like that exists. You all don't know what you're talking about. I'm leaving this site. It was fun for a while, but you're just looking to rip someone apart and that's not fair.

I have a friend, Megan, who always made fun of me for listening to country music. I was so disappointed when Chely was in town for a booksigning and I was unable to attend. So Megan went to get a book signed by Chely and she was going to surprise me with it. OMG!! Megan is now a Chely Wright fanatic!!! She swears that Chely was in the gay parade the very next day and as Chely passed by Megan, she waved and mouthed "hi Megan." I told her she was full of shit but she swears to it. After reading R191, maybe so. Btw, I'm not with Fanscape. Not so sure about Megan though.

I understand what Chely means to you. There's a lot of negativity on this board, but there are also some really caring, positive posters. A bit of advice, though you didn't ask?

I was in NYC to attend Chely's book signing some months back. Before going to the book store, my friend and I went to a favorite restaurant to get some dinner. I was wearing my "Like Me T-Shirt". Well, you could of blown me over when I looked over, and 2 tables from where we were siting was Chely and her best buddy Chuck. She saw me, and noticed my T-Shirt. Within 10 seconds she jumped up and came right over to our table and sat and chatted with us. I thought I was on candid camera. %0D %0D What a nice, gracious lady she was, of course we told her we were on our way to see her at Borders, she was so excited. Chuck is a sweetheart as well. Nice, nice man. Loved him.%0D %0D So before leaving I head to the rest room and who is in the restaurant restroom putting on her make up for the show, but Chely... She truly is stunning, with or without the makeup. So there we were in the bathroom chatting again. %0D %0D So we eventually get to the signing and Chely makes it a point to spot us in the crown and go a shot out. Tells the crowd about our meeting... Said I was now considered a close friend because I "heard" her pee !!!!!%0D %0D While I see there are folks on here that seem to want to trash her, I can only tell you my experience was amazing.

R241 I would venture to say that Chely and Lauren are visiting family for the holidays. The children are nieces and nephews.

Chely can't please all the people all the time but it's so obvious that there's a negative poster on here and their story is a personal one with Chely. Stop insulting our intelligence. I can accept someone for saying they don't like her music or they couldn't relate to her book. But to criticize her fans on here and claim they have to be her "peeps" is ludicrous. I admit I've gotten a little defensive regarding my admiration for Chely but after reading posts like R191, don't dismiss me as Fanscape or whatever. Chely is making a difference in people's lives. What are you doing?

by Anonymousreply 24412/25/2010

Exactly, well said R241.

What you fail to realize R243 is that everyone has different experiences and reactions. I happen to to be a big Chely fan and have been for about 15 years now. I have looked at her as deeply as you and I believe that Chely is a good person with a passionate heart. I have never met her personally, but there are a lot of stories out there that proves this.

I in no way think she is perfect. In fact, reading her book made me realize that she is human and has done some things she is probably not proud of...but haven't we all. I'm glad she shared those stories. I live near Nashville and have heard the rumors for many years and knew she was probably hiding....and I can relate.

If you have had a bad experience then you have a right to question her. But, don't get obsessive about saying everyone who "praises" her must be one of her peeps or Fanscape. It's not true. And, you know that.

R248 you wrote

"The continual promotion of Chely as the 1st major country music artist to come out has always grated with me - seeming again to be an overstating of the situation."

Who then, was the first major, hit-making commercial artist known as a country music star came out before her?

You're really harsh about Chely. Sounds like you have a personal problem with her. Her book is actually lauded as a very good book by critics and many people in the literary word. She actually IS making a difference. And you say that you were a member of her fan site and got tired of the "me, me me" on it so you unsubscribed. ?? That's weird. That's what fan sites are about. Did you want her to talk about "you, you, you"?

One more thing, I don't think Chely's use of social media is unlike any other artist in entertainment. They ALL use it to the degree Chely uses it. You are very critical of her. Make me think you have a vendetta or ulterior motive. She made no secret about it in her book that she's made changes in her friendship/work circles once she decided to come out and that probably pisssed a few people off. Maybe you're one of those people? Or one of those people's friends? Hmmm. Do the math, people. Chely has been known to be one of the most giving artists in country music since her first CD came out in 1995. She's been known to be nice and generous and giving and kind. Why would we let someone make us question that now?

I know what I know.

Merry Christmas to all.

by Anonymousreply 25712/25/2010

I've lived in Nashville for over 20 years. I remember when Chely had her first hit. Nashville thought she was "the latest and greatest." After a while people started noticing something very peculiar about Chely in that she didn't like to talk about her personal life. That doesn't fly here. This is down home family oriented territory. I heard her giving an interview on a local radio statio and she refused to even play the pronoun game. I knew her career would be stunted if she didn't play the game. Hell, you don't even have to play the game well. You can get married for 4 months and have the marriage annulled and still squelch the rumors. If Chely stayed with Brad Paisley they'd be considered another Garth and Tricia, Tim and Faith, etc.. Chely could have been huge if only she played the game. There's nothing wrong with using and abusing people for your own personal gain, is there? Why couldn't she lie to her fans and pretend to be someone she wasn't? Because if she had, she'd be filthy rich today. She wouldn't have to ask for donations for a little indie film.

by Anonymousreply 25812/26/2010

I have to agree with R258. Chely is well aware of closeted homosexuals in Nashville who are very successful in the country music industry. They lie and maybe throw out some homophobic slurs every now and then. What's the big deal?Why couldn't Chely do that? She would've been laughing all the way to the bank.

by Anonymousreply 26312/26/2010

R263 I'm not so sure because look at the bullshit she has to tolerate now. She came out, committing herself philanthropically and people (at least a few on this thread)are accusing her of being fake and swindling their money. She should have lied to her fans, pretended to be a whore (being a whore in Nashville is acceptable but being gay is taboo) and taken the money. She could be a very wealthy woman.

by Anonymousreply 26412/26/2010

R263, I'm not sure I agree. Anyone in the public spotlight will have to deal with bullshit closeted or not. Celebrities always have someone to answer to and no matter what, will never make everyone happy, especially us bitchy homos on datalounge. From reading her book and from seeing her at a reading, the overall feeling I got is she is grateful to just be where she is now in life. I obviously have no inside information to that effect, but I bet Chely is still happy she came out. She finally had the opportunity to branch out and find a girlfriend who isn't entirely toxic and repressed. Also, R264 the definition of "wealth" does not only relate to monetary terms. I hope Chely now has a wealth of support, happiness, and love in her life, and I wish that for you too. Start the Kumbaya crunchy granola jokes now.

Isn't that all we should expect of a celebrity? It seems that she gives that. I agree, she could have married a couple of male stars or a professional athlete or her record label head or her producer or her manager like other female country singers do. She didn't. She came out. Class act, if you ask me. Peace.

Thanks R270! Also thanks to R272 for the sighting info. They sound like a cute couple. Not to try and pick sides but I agree with your girlfriend when it comes to leaving them alone. I look at it in the way of on call and off call for work. Fans rarely afford their celebrities off time, could you imagine working 24/7 without a break? That's why Chely has meet and greets prior to concerts and after signings. Allows the time with the fans she seems to so much enjoy, while trying to maintain some sort of "private" life. Of course that again is all speculation, I maintain I am not fanscape nor am I in Chely's camp.

I highly doubt she's not "financially secure". I'm sure she makes more than a comfortable living just doing what she is currently doing. She also doesn't seem to be an obsessively big spender like some celebs. Maybe that stems from her humble beginnings. She may not be making Lady Gaga cash, but I'm pretty sure she probably qualifies as one of the currently lamented top 1% earners of this lovely country on a yearly basis. I'd be shocked if she made less than that.

by Anonymousreply 28012/26/2010

I'm sure she's financially comfortable but there's no way she's in the top 1%. Contrary to how it sounds, I'm actually very supportive of Chely. I was in Nashville when the industry shunned her for being gay and NOW it appears the gay people are berating her. So what's the point? I say she should've gone for the money.

You have a funny way of showing your support R281. Read post R191. There are many other posts similar to R191. I'm so relieved she didn't go for the money or play the game. Chely has a purpose and it's not to pretend she's someone she isn't.

by Anonymousreply 28212/26/2010

R281, You really think she doesn't make close to, if not more than $500,000 yr? I'm pretty sure that would put her in the top 1% of earners. They of course don't take into account your expenditures during the calculation. I'd be shocked if she didn't get at least that amount of royalties from her previously released music and new book combined, not to mention speaking engagements. Yes R281, you are right, some gay people are berating her on this site, but as I said earlier, in R265...that seems to be the downfall of "celebrity". Even the people you think will accept you, end up being bitter little bitches. Clarification, I do not hold myself above this distinction of bitter little bitch at times, though I side with Chely when it comes to many of the bitter posts on this site.

I was an intern for a popular radio station in Nashville many years ago. Chely came in for a an interiew and I remember thinking what a refreshing change she was opposed to other country music celebrities. She was beautiful, articulate, poised and so charming. She brought her little yorkie in the studio with her and Chely treated her like a baby. It was really cute. The dj interviewing her was a popular radio personality and the interview was one of the best I'd heard. But then he starts making these innuendos about her personal life. He knew exactly what he was doing and it was brutal. No one in the studio knew I was gay and after witnessing that, there was no way I was coming out. Sorry people, I played the game because I wasn't as strong as Chely.

R300, wow, Friendster...that's a throwback to 2002. I didn't know it still existed. Did anyone get to see Chely on the Nate Berkus show yesterday? The interview didn't seem as scripted as ones in the past. I did pick up on her constantly repeating the name of the interviewer like someone posted on here previously, that made me chuckle. I was surprised Nate didn't have Chely read the part of her book related to teen bullying and suicide and how she equates gay teen suicide with hate crimes. Also, does anyone else find it off putting when she is announced as "country music 'super star'"? It seems forced and corny. I guess I personally just don't see her as a "super star", star yes, super star, no. Maybe it's just because I never lived in the mid west or heard about her until she came out. She is definitely a celebrity, but she just doesn't have the "super star" following like Alan Jackson, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney etc. Doesn't matter to me if she is a super star or not, she definitely gained me as a new fan, it just seems like false advertising when I hear it.

For some reason R311, I did not notice Chely repeating the interviewer's name. However, I cringed when she was announced as a "Super Star". It is not an absolute lie, but it is hyperbole and sort of tarishes her image as "Nice Christian Gay Lady Who Does Not Lie". That hyperbole was one of the first things that made my antenna go up when she came out. But I must point out, on the show, she did not actually say this about herself, Nate said it.%0D %0D Before her interview, she said something to Nate about "not getting the support from everyone she expected" or something to that effect. I personally feel that this situation has something to do with the hyperbole I mentioned above. %0D %0D She seemed a bit rattled during the interview for some reason and she did not seem to radiate the confidence I expected to see. When she started reading she seemed to regain her composure and it showed that she is indeed a very fine speaker.%0D %0D She sang "Like Me", and while it is not my favorite song from her album, her voice was good and her performance seemed to convey the sensitivity of the person.%0D %0D She did not directly beg for money for her foundation or film. Instead she awarded a scholarship to bullying victim Seth's brother, and Nate chipped in. %0D %0D In a bad economy you have to be careful about directly asking ordinary folks for money for something they know little about. There are more sophisticated ways to motivate people to give. %0D %0D I still think Chely is genuine and sincere, but maybe her publicity people need to make sure she always looks absolutely honest in the eyes of the public.

Both are very much into the relationship being long term/monogamous and who knows maybe it will. They are great together and have lots of fun. They like the same people and have been seen all over around being the "cutest couple". CW has been ready for a "forever" relationship for a long time coming and LB has been around the bar scenes/party groups/dating all thru her 20's so she's a great choice for CW now that she's heading quickly for 30 come May. I'm pulling for them!!! They both are very smart, educated, beautiful, caring (even LB cooks to suit CW's veggie desires even if she herself is a carnivore), and deserving of a little privacy so I hope that all this hype into Chely doesn't ruin their chances of a normal, peaceful life together.

There was a previous comment from a Nashvillian saying how Chely Wright was considered the "latest and greatest" when she had her first hit. It's true. Every man in Nashville was drooling over her (and lots of women). Her music was played on the radio constantly. She was indeed a superstar. Nashville fans are extremely loyal to their country music stars with one stipulation. You can't be gay. Chely had gotten to the point where she wasn't confirming the rumors but she wasn't denying them either. So the rumors escalated and that was pretty much the demise of her career. She is much more talented than some of the current superstars but Chely's career was cut short simply because she's gay. So in my eyes, she's still a superstar. In more ways than one. No I'm not one of her peeps. Just a native Nashvillian who remembers how unjustly she was treated.

I'm a country music fan since teens back in the 90's so I saw Chely when she first came on the scene and she was awesome and very good. Pure Country at it's my opinion...better than Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, and Taylor Swift...Chely has a great voice and down-earth-music and that makes her soooo missed by country fans today because country isn't country anymore, it is more "pop with a slight twang" now an' again. Chely old music was great. I hate to see that she was forced to leave her true style of singing...but her new music is good too. I think on the Nate B. show she is embarrassed by being called a superstar and most likely it still hurts her because she knows who she was and what she could have been, as far as popular in Nashville up against the best female vocalists (or so called). She seems very sensitive and it sucks! It truely sucks because she shouldn't have had to choose country music or her personal happiness. Her personal life was and is her business. I hope that she will make a new Country music album and that some smart producers/management would pick her up because I think alot of true country fans would support her! Give Nashville a REAL female singer again with talent and not just hair, boobs, and a mixing booth to cover their true voices!!! Come back to your true heart, Chely!!! True Country fans need you!!! We're not all a bunch of crazy, lesbians. Some of us believe that you're a good advocate for GLBT's but....come on, that's not all this life has for you!!!! Stand up and SING! Sing true and ignore all of the bs....'nuff said....

Just wanted to share that Chely spoke to me at a book signing she did in San Diego. She didn't say anything specifically profound, but she did look me in the eye and give me about 5 minutes of her time and seemed genuinely interested in me. I told her that I am gay and that I'm not out to anyone, even in college. She was nice and asked me what I was studying. She also said to be easy on myself and not to judge my coming out process to hers or anyone elses. She said to just be good to myself and do it in my own time. She was really thoughtful and nice. What I didn't tell Chely is that I had been contemplating suicide. After I met her and saw how normal she was, I became hopeful about my future. I know I won't be coming out tomorrow, but I might this year. Anyway, I just read a lot of negative things on here and I wanted to share with you all that I am a young gay Christian college student and Chely coming out and being as kind as she is in person really made a difference in my life.

by Anonymousreply 34401/01/2011

(344), I understand your pain. I went to a Christian college as well and it was terribly difficult. I wanted so badly to not be gay and be able to date people I was attracted to, but I couldn't change. I'm in my 30's now I want to say to you, hang in there. I didn't even come out until recently and I had a 6 year relationship with my 'roommate' and I hid it from my family all of that time, which was extremely difficult emotionally.

I think Christian college was especially difficult and looking back, we were very young - and too young to think we knew everything, so I was holding myself to the strict rules my peers were preaching. Don't give up. Love your self. Remember the waitress in Chely's book? When Chely was young, she was attracted to her waitress and the waitress was wearing a shirt that said "God doesn't make mistakes." (don't hold me to exact wording, look it up!)? You'll know when you're ready to come out. There is nothing wrong with you and no, I hold-heartedly believe you are NOT going to hell over homosexuality. Try to keep your chin up. We all go through this. There are also plenty of resources for you if you need and I am sure that you can find plenty of info from others on this board.

Thank you for sharing your experience with Chely!

OMG!! Lesbian Alyssa Quicksand's "out"-raged comment about Chely's film/activism over on Chely's FB.%0D %0D I'm not about to say this over there on Chely's FB, but Alyssa is not thinking ahead too well. %0D %0D Aside from the fact that it appears Chely is not satisfied with the status quo on LGBT rights, I suspect Chely is contemplating a career in politics at some point in the distant future, say after age 50 or so. Didn't Chely major in Political Science in college? Activism can certainly lead to a career in politics or lobbying. %0D %0D Even if she isn't interested in a future political career, Chely does seem to be kind of person who is willing to go out on a limb to stir things up. %0D

R346 I read that as well and the first thing I thought of was that it's bad enough that we (LGBT) get bullied by the hetero population and now we have to endure it from people in our own community. Sad, truly sad!

It's because of advocates (like Chely) that laws get changed. If this FB person doesn't want to do that with her life then that's her choice but she should be thankful that some of the rights she gets to enjoy as a lesbian today are due to advocates like Chely who have (and are still are) fighting for equal rights.

That's my two cents on this topic.

Allyssa Quicksand's comments are beyond ridiculous. Unless she's a celebrity whose boss is essentially the public, she needs to keep quiet. I'd like to know what SHE'S done for the movement. For her to say that it's no big deal to come out anymore is just stupid.

In this interview Chely discusses how her record sales were cut in half after she came out, and how increased public awareness of her, as reflected in such as her Facebook page, does not result in more people buying her records or coming to her shows. This is interesting because I think it has been widely thought that the loss of country fans was offset by an increase in popularity among those who hadn't previously known of her.

by Anonymousreply 36001/12/2011

I think her record sales (at least from her most album) were probably down because its a hugely downer album.

Not one catchy tune it in, like Single White Female. Even her own record label begged her to write something positive and hopeful.

Which she sort of did....

Next album will be a big seller if she can amp up the catchy quotient of her songs.

by Anonymousreply 42301/20/2011

I am going to be charitable and say that it appears Chely simply assumed LB had not been to the Dinah when she answered those questions. I suspect that LB simply did not mention to Chely that she went to the 2007 Dinah on a working trip with the Afterellen crew. I understand Sarah Warn canned LB so maybe LB doesn't want to even think about, much less mention, anything associated with Sarah warn and Afterellen. %0D

by Anonymousreply 42401/20/2011

Here's your proof ladies....%0D LB was indeed at the Dinah in 2007. filmed 4 episodes of the "She Said What?" online talk show series at the Dinah. In the beginning of this video Sarah Warn says "we are here coming to you from Dinah..." and there is LB on the left.

by Anonymousreply 42501/21/2011

Unlike the SheWired and Dinah interviews mentioned earlier on this thread, in the Jan 10, 2011 interview on AfterEllen Chely was, of course, "interestingly" not asked if her girlfriend had ever been to the Dinah.%0D %0D Surely the "senior writer" at AfterEllen knows Chely is seeing LB and she almost certainly knows LB used to contribute to AfterEllen on "She Said What?". %0D %0D On page 3 of the interview (link below), "senior writer" Dara Nai and Chely discuss the "girlfriend":%0D %0D AE: Who's your girlfriend? %0D CW: Well, she's not a celebrity. She's a businesswoman, here in New York. %0D %0D AE: Good thinking. %0D CW: [laughs] ....%0D %0D No, LB is not an of-the-moment "celebrity", but she did write a book and she did say "We Are At The Dinah" at the beginning of Episode 13 of "She Said What?". There also used to be a fansite for LB.%0D %0D It is apparent that LB does not want too much Chely-related public attention these days. This could reflect concerns about a potential conflict of interest issue with her current "businesswoman" fundraiser job. It could also reflect a desire to avoid hate-mail and negative attention from homophobic ex-Chely fans.

by Anonymousreply 42601/21/2011

Regardless of the rumors (or facts) of her youthful "wild past", I personally really like LB. She is intelligent and she is a very nice person. I still say Chely made a good choice, even if she did not want to mention in 2 separate interviews that LB went to the 2007 Dinah on a "working trip" with the AfterEllen crew.

Who is AR?

by Anonymousreply 42901/21/2011

AR is Alison Rou, Lauren's last ex. She's been discussed on the DataLounge before. Her level of attractiveness was the topic of discussion and let's just say that she got an overwhelming thumbs down by our panel. Not pretty, very butch, slightly overweight an no Chely Wright for sure. The fact though, is that in 2007, Miss Blitzer was dating another woman from New York. LeeLee Groome. Miss Groome and Lauren had a lengthy relationship which seemed to be rocky, that lasted several years. LeeLee has a child and they still reside in NYC. That's the scoop.

by Anonymousreply 43001/22/2011

This relationship between Chely and Lauren should be coming to an end soon. Mark my word, this won't last. Lauren's been too reckless in her past and those skeletons always find a way of crawling out of the closet. I'm not saying Chely's an angel, I don't know, but I am saying that Lauren is not. Who do we think Chely should date next? Any ideas?

by Anonymousreply 43101/29/2011

That LB-CW relationship looks really nice to me and I remain convinced that it is a positive, deep, long-term thing. There is an obvious chemistry and a sense of profound attachment between those two. When I say "profound attachment" I also mean that it appears to be an important and perhaps even "fated" relationship for both of them. The people involved in such a relationship can sense this aspect of their attachment and it will differ from other relationship experiences.

by Anonymousreply 43201/29/2011

Let's say you are right R431, and CW-LB break up soon, and Chely is single again. Who would she date?%0D %0D None of her past girlfriends were major celebrities, and neither is LB. So her next girlfriend probably would not be a major celebrity either. Chely seemed to be the socially and economically dominant person in her past relationships, so her next girlfriend would probably live more quietly than Chely and earn less than she does.%0D %0D Personally, I would have absolutely no interest in dating Chely (or anyone like her) if I were available. I say this even though I like her. Chely, like most celebrities, is someone I prefer to appreciate at a distance. I am sure a lot of other people feel the same way. %0D %0D So R431, unless you are a major celebrity, and unless you earn more than she does, you might have a shot. Would you date Chely?

I already mentioned that I prefer to appreciate someone like Chely from a distance. I would not date a celebrity because everything and everyone revolves around them. There appears to be a certain lack of equal give and take in such relationships. I would prefer to be on equal footing with my partner.

Saw Chely and Lauren at Vinegar Hill House having dinner (Brooklyn) tonight. They were more then happy to say hello and chat for a while. Both very attractive, do question there, also, very engaging to speak with. Oh, and there rings... BEAUTIFUL !!

Can someone start a Kenny Chesney thread? Now there's some good gossip!

by Anonymousreply 47909/14/2011

did someone post here that Terri Clark was Jealous of the attention Chely got for coming out ? How would anyone know that ?...I didn't hear Terri say one negative thing about it and someone here is assuming too much i think. Frankly, lot's of Lesbians have slept with men, I don't think thats the reason Terri isn't coming out....perhaps it is because she still has an active career in Canada, tours the US, and is a Grand Old Opry member, and she is protecting all of it ? Chely had nothing much going on .

What else is new on Chely?

by Anonymousreply 48510/26/2011

Chely's busy defining what gay is to the world according to her own definition. She's no Harvey Milk.

by Anonymousreply 48610/28/2011

I agree with you, r486.

Has anyone noticed that the Chely Wright thread on L Chat is gone? There were some pretty nasty photoshopped pics that got posted and I wonder if that is the reason the thread got deleted. Actually, this tread looks pretty dead also.

by Anonymousreply 48812/15/2011

488 this thread is a farce. Filled with one PR poster who writes all kinds of fake stories. Trolldar this thread you'll see. It's proven a fake.

LChat got some problems at the momento. Doubt they can pull it together with new threads. The legendary ones are gone. I think it's dunzo now.

I still want to know which one is the top, Chely or Lauren? Come on, one of them is the "boy"...

Oh please 492, what are you, a baptist?

by Anonymousreply 49301/07/2012

Ha R493, I thought the same thing. I'm an extremely feminine girly girl and so is my wife. Yes, we take turns. There is no "boy" in our relationship.

Btw, I think Chely and Lauren are adorable. And I appreciate the work they do for our community. They're perfect role mdels.

Chely is a class act. I'm thrilled for her. It's about time she finds happiness.

by Anonymousreply 49501/07/2012

I don't like her as much as I used to. She and Lauren are great, good looking and lovely role models but Chely is IMO getting a bit presumptuous in her "role" as gay activist.

Don't go slagging other people off for coming out late (or not the "right" way), especially not if it took you 40 years yourself to come out. Not everyone is like you, Chely.

by Anonymousreply 49601/07/2012

I totally agree with 495. Chely is classy, struggled a LONG time with her sexuality thanks to our f***ed up society and it's wonderful to see her so happy. She deserves every bit of happiness she has found. Rock on girls! BTW Chely is very clear that everyone is on their own journey; she does not point the finger at anyone for how they're coming out - or not. I was fortunate enough to spend a good amount of time with her last year, and this message came through loud and clear.

by Anonymousreply 49701/07/2012

You're certainly entitled to your opinion R496 but I disagree with you. Chely is very clear to "come out when it's your time." And I'm appreciative of her gay activism. She represents us well. But again R496, I respect your opinion.

by Anonymousreply 49801/07/2012

I suspect one will come back pregnant from their honeymoon. But which one...Chely or Lauren?

by Anonymousreply 49901/07/2012

@R499 Hmmmm, Chely is 41 so she may not want to waste time. However, Chely travels a lot. Lauren works from home so it would make sense for her to have the baby.

My list of lesbian crushes:

1) Chely Wright 2) Jessica Clark 3) Portia 4) Amber Heard

by Anonymousreply 50101/07/2012

They're all beautiful women. But you're still straight R501. Because I even have crushes on these women.

Who is Jessica Clark?

by Anonymousreply 50301/07/2012

Jessica Clark is a model.

by Anonymousreply 50401/07/2012

Wow! I just googled Jessica Clark. She looks like Matthew McConaughey's girlfried but Jessica's prettier.

by Anonymousreply 50501/07/2012

Someone needs to start a thread about Jessica!

Jessica Clark and her wife:

They also did a vlog together (I think on AE)

R496 That couldn't be further from the truth about Chely.

Chely Wright is hot. More gossip.

Chely is enjoying motherhood right now.

It is too bad that Chely Wright's career didn't get a boost for coming out of the closet. Oh well.
