    Sad. Who's the Boss was a popular show when I was a kid. I remember when he came out it was considered very brave but also career suicide.

    He was actually being outed by a tabloid like many others so he came out for damage control, but it's not like anyone was surprised as he was very fem acting. It's sad but in the same respect he chose drugs and fudge as his gay lifestyle.

    Your commentary on Danny Pintauro goes against my agenda of standing up to homophobia. If you're a republican homophobic racist anti drag queen supporting some misogynistic religion then yeah I'm offensive.icon_rolleyes.gif

    I didn't even know he was gay. Seems like he's doing pretty well now:

    I remember when Advocate did an article about him for their October celebrity issue in...'02 I think it was. He looked kinda rough back then. In the interview he said he was OUTED in '97 and that he became Poz in 2003 while under the influence of Meth at the time.

    He's actually cuter and more interesting as a grown man with a checkered past. I think it's great if he wants to speak out against meth, with his personal cautionary tale. But I don't see him as sad. I think you're pathetic. I totally agree with Radd and MMTM that you're a prime example of someone with internalized homophobia.

    Now leave Danny alone!!icon_mad.gif

    He seems really happy and healthy -- both physically and emotionally.
    I never watched that show, but I say: Good for him!
    Plus, I think he's cute.
