Carson Kressley & Ted Allen Say Queer Eye Forced Them to Come Out

Originally posted 10/18/2013 03:00PM

Ten years ago, a handsome and gabby group of five gay lifestyle experts blazed onto the TV scene as makeover savants, opening doors to their worlds of culture, beauty, food and style – and in the process, exposing for many hopeless heteros what it's like to live and thrive as a gay men.

On Sunday, the much-loved Queer Eye for the Straight Guy cast will return with a reunion show on Bravo, talking to Andy Cohen about their pioneering entry into reality television and how it's changed their lives thus far, turning nearly all of the Fab 5, as they were known, into household names.

Among the show's biggest revelations? Fashion and style guru Carson Kressley and recently engaged celeb chef Ted Allen were not out to their families when the show was about to air.

So Russell Crowe walks into a bar ... No, really. While in Toronto filming The Cinderella Man, Crowe took in a performance by singer-songwriter Slaid Cleaves at nightspot Hugh's Room. Slimmed down for his role (as Depression-era fighter Jim Braddock) and unassuming, Crowe, who arrived right before the second set, surprisingly attracted little notice.

Though Jamie Foxx's character in the upcoming romantic comedy Breakin' All the Rules (due May 14) pens a book about leaving a significant other, in real life, costar Gabrielle Union has her own sage advice on the subject. "My first tip is not to use random excuses like, 'It's not you – it's me' or 'We're going in opposite directions.' You leave people wondering for years and it carries over into their next relationship," Union, 31, tells Daily Insider. "If you were just honest and said, 'I started hating the way you dressed' or 'I can't stand the fact that your mother calls every morning and you actually take the calls,' then they can go into the next relationship with a clear conscience. The second thing? Change your numbers. Cut off all contact. You have to go cold turkey and allow the other person to not be able to linger. That desire to just have one little roll in the sack, (it) won't hurt – yes, it will. Finally, out of kindness, don't debut your new date in areas where you run the risk of running into your ex. It's just evil." Well, okay. Did you get all that?
