Neil Patrick Harris is gay

Neil Patrick Harris says he’s gay and tells People magazine:

“The public eye has always been kind to me, and until recently I have been able to live a pretty normal life. Now it seems there is speculation and interest in my private life and relationships. So, rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love.”

What is this “speculation and interest” in his private life that he speaks of? I don’t think anybody has thought about Doogie Howser for the past 10 years. This would be like Gary Coleman crawling out of the backseat of the car he’s been living in to announce he’s gay. Only less interesting, because at least Coleman is funny to look at.
