There’s a new interview with Barbara Walters. There’s a double Barbara tonight – the Mighty and also the Most Fascinating People of the Year. While talking with Barbara, Opes addresses the lesbian rumours:

"I'm not a lesbian. I'm not even kind of a lesbian."

The Mighty Opesey goes on to say that it’s annoying to have people think that because it suggests that she’s dishonest:

"The reason why it irritates me is because it means that somebody must think I'm lying. That's number one. Number two ... why would you want to hide it? That is not the way I run my life."

So ... why do you enable John Travolta?

No, no... we don’t want to push people out the closet, of course not. But do we have to help them lie about it to support a public image in service of a movie career dependent on people like YOU buying movie tickets because you believe in the conventional family man? Just curious.

Anyway, back to the lesbian issue and Gayle – she started to cry when talking about Gayle. Something about being overwhelmed by what a good person Gayle is and that she’s never told Gayle that before...

Really? She’s a seasoned television professional and she talks about her BFF and then come the tears?

Maybe I’m just heartless. Where is my Christmas spirit?
