A Broadway Star Gay? That Would Be Shocking!
It's been almost a week since the Tony awards and Broadway queens are still nattering on about whether South Pacific's dreamy Paulo Szot is gay (and whether I have a szot with him). Here are the clues: On the telecast, he was sitting next to a fairly good looking guy. When he was introduced by the ultra sibilant Liza Minnelli, he gushed, "Liza Minnelli! Wow!" And though he did acknowledge his dad, he made a special point of mentioning his mom and her birthday. Others swear Szot thanked his lover (the guy sitting with him) in the laundry list of names he read off, but there's no real proof of that. Quick—someone ask him if he likes Gossip Girl!
