Wow...I am completely blown away. Not by this "startling" revelation (because, seriously, who DIDN'T see this coming)...but by one "Claymates" reaction to this news (as reported by the Associated Press):
"This is really shocking news as I had no idea he was gay," read a comment posted by "Sheridansq." "And now I have to deal with this. I am not sure what to say to people who know I was a fan. ... I didn't go to work today and am not answering the telephone."
Seriously? Seriously?!? Who does that? Who lets themselves get so consumed by pop culture that they can't function in society?! Yes, I enjoy reading about pop culture and celebrity gossip every now and then, but never to the extent that the people around me would feel compelled to host an intervention!
