Livelihood 'On The Line,' Anchor Reveals He's Gay


CNN weekend anchor Don Lemon is many things: A 45-year-old African-American native of Baton Rouge, La., he was raised Southern Baptist, attended Catholic schools and graduated from Brooklyn College in New York, and subsequently prospered in the competitive world of television news.


One more facet of his life that he reveals publicly for the first time today: He is gay.


"Do I want to be 'the gay anchor'?" Lemon said.


He said his mentors and agents challenged him to consider whether he was willing to wear that label throughout his career.

Yeah, I learned from "30 Rock" that most blacks looks ageless, ex. Samuel Jackson, he's in his 60's :eek:

Don lost weight presumably for all the press he's currently getting about the new book. I really admire him. Anyway, he used to be chunkier and Wannabeknowitall said If I'm looking for some ass, Don Lemon.

If I'm looking for some dick, TJ.

If I'm looking for both, well you get the gist...

I would say this is probably the last thing I wanted quoted from me but then I forgot that I wrote "I voted for McCain because I thought Obama would be too soft on terrorist". :tape:

So this is likely the second least thing I want to be quoted on...

Were all the men in that CNN video clip gay? Just wondering. Also, I believe Don is 45 because black doesn't crack.

He looks kind of fruity, is this like when Rosie came out, I mean, who didn't know?

Good for him I guess.

Something about Anderson Cooper is yucky, you guys can have him.

You have never heard that "black don't crack?". See any black person over 40. However, as Chris rock explained, there rich ages and poor ages. This guy is not 45 he is RICH 45.
