Did Bill Maher Out Kelsey Grammer on The Tonight Show?
Bill Maher’s recent stop on The Tonight Show is making gay blog news today for Maher’s scathing critique of Rick Santorum – “He thinks life begins at erection.” But it’s Maher’s sly dig at Kelsey Grammer that made our ears perk up.
“Thing have changed. It’s not 2004. Americans are a lot more comfortable with gay because of TV. Because of Glee and Will & Grace and Frasier – all of these gay shows.”
Rumors of Kelsey Grammer’s sexuality have long dogged the actor. A frequent target of blind item gossip sites, Grammer is known almost as well for a fondness for wearing women’s clothing as he is for his contributions to primetime. Ex-wife Camille and the other gals have cackled at Grammer’s erectile dysfunction and penchant for wearing women’s underwear and high heels on multiple episodes of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
So what do you think? Is Maher taking a jab at Kelsey here or alluding to some other gay Frasier subtext?
