I Think She's Alone Now...
So did you hear about how everyone's favorite 1980s pop princess, Tiffany, accidentally outed her old boyfriend, New Kids on the Block's Jonathan Knight, on television?
Tiffany and fellow 80s pop icon Debbie Gibson stopped by Bravo's Watch What Happens Live to promote their new super-campy TV movie, Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. (I kid you not. And just to prove how campy the movie is, A Martinez and former Monkee Mickey Dolenz are in it. Seriously.)
After dishing about the movie, Tiffany also shared some memories about her relationship with Jonathan Knight. She said, "He became gay later. I didn't do it! But he's fabulous." she said. And then she added, "Now looking back, when we were dating he was so much fun. We used to do facials together. He was so easy to talk to and he was fabulous."
Knight's sexuality is fairly known in the music world, but like a number of other celebrities, he has chosen not to publicly acknowledge that he is gay. Knight took to his Twitter status to playfully refute Tiffany's story, tweeting "I'm so devastated...How can I not remember getting facials???????"
A horrified Tiffany tweeted, "Really didn't know that was the wrong thing to say...Never meant to hurt Jon."
Knight showed true grace and class in his reaction, and he closed the story by tweeting, "Tiff, please don't lose any sleep over it! I know you weren't being mean and I found it to be funny. Wishing nothing but the best for you always!"
Happy endings all around. Plus, Debbie Gibson has stopped calling herself Deborah! Everyone wins...
