Andy Cohen, the openly gay vice
president of original programming and development of bisexual
cabler Bravo, has chided Carrie Fisher for outing John Travolta
Cohen made his remarks during an
appearance on HLN's The Joy Behar Show.
In a December 10 interview with gay
glossy The Advocate, Fisher was bluntly asked about Travolta's
alleged gay dalliances.
The interview made reference to
Travolta's lawyer threatening to sue Gawker.com for publishing claims
made by Robert Randolph in his self-published memoir You'll Never
Spa In This Town Again. The
allegations that Randolph has witnessed Travolta with other men in
various Los Angeles spas have also appeared in tabloids the National
Enquirer and the Star.
“I know you and Travolta go way back,
so let's get really blunt here: Does his legal team have any business
demanding Gawker remove a recent post suggesting that he's given blow
jobs?” Brandon Voss asked.
“Wow!” Fisher replied. “I mean,
my feeling about John has always been that we know and we don't care.
Look, I'm sorry that he's uncomfortable with it, and that's all I
can say. It only draws more attention to it when you make that kind
of legal fuss. Just leave it be.”
“I love Carrie Fisher,” Cohen said
on the show. “I think she's great. She's so smart and funny, but
I thought that was kinda uncool.”
Behar agreed, saying, “It's outing
someone – if it's true or not true.” (The video is embedded in
