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.

Ashley Judd's Other Talent

Perhaps you never outgrow being raised in a family full of talented people. After growing up in the shadow of her singing duo mother, Naomi, and sister Wynonna, Ashley Judd became a huge star in her own right, of course. But when we asked her recently whether she identified with Linda Lee Porter, wife of composer Cole Porter, whom she plays in De-Lovely (opening in limited release July 2), she said, "I think I relate to her a lot. If I know how to do something, it's be in a room with a talented person." Director Irwin Winkler added of Judd: "If I said to Ashley, 'I want you to jump off that building,' she would say to me, 'Where do you want me to land?' But when I said to her, 'I want you to sing a couple of songs,' she said, 'Wait a minute.

But I thought she did a wonderful job, and once I explained to her how important it was, she was great."
