Uncle Poodle Is HIV Positive
In her NON-coming out/coming out speech the other night, Jodie Foster moaned that she's not Honey Boo Boo and therefore didn't need to reveal everything to the world her whole life.
But I felt (A) That diminished all the dignified stars who've felt it important to come out and are hardly reality show attractions
(b) Honey Boo Boo has been gay positive, especially with the inclusion of Uncle Poodle--Lee Thompson--who led to the show's message that everyone's a little bit gay and there ain't nothing wrong with that.
Well, Uncle Poodle has a new revelation.
In keeping with the tone of the show, he's revealed that publicly.
And even if certain Oscar winners might not agree, I have to say "Congrats on the honesty. It could actually make a difference."
