women, though lesbians weren't feeling the bisexual thing. Now I'm
in love with a woman I think I can be with forever.”

“I love the gays,” she said. “The
gay community is the most loyal fan base. Whenever the opportunity
presents itself, I jump at it.”

followers, Davis messaged: “well I guess the cat's out of the bag …
or should I say closet? ...”
