court papers reveal Carson is straight.

court papers reveal Carson is straight.
The Smoking Gun has unearthed court documents that include Carson Kressley’s sworn statements that he’s actually straight. After grabbing the straight guy’s crotch during taping of a Queer Eye for the Straight Guy episode, the show and Carson were quietly sued in January for damages related to sexual assault. Bravo quickly settled for an undisclosed amount. The settlement papers reveal Carson’s defense: He is merely affecting a “super-flaming-gay persona” that he crafted for years in community theatre and bath houses. Carson says being straight made the crotch-grabbing and fondling in question the same sort of mere non-sexual horseplay that occurs regularly in locker rooms among straight male athletes. As evidence of his heterosexuality, Carson cites his subscription to Men’s Health, and says his sense of fashion clearly proves he’s straight: “What self-respecting gay man would mix colors like these or have hair like mine?”
