Gay country star Chely Wright wanted to "come out" to her family after watching Ellen do the same back in 2007 but her fathers reaction stopped her. Rotten man!
Appearing on DeGeneres' daytime talk show, Wright says when Ellen told the world on National Television her father reached for the remote control and flipped the TV off and he said, 'That's disgusting!' It sends me into a spiral."
That family moment set Wright back years, she told Ellen that she made that promise again recommitting herself to never again tell anyone she was Gay.
I wonder if he's ever had fantasies about two women gettin' it on, as many hetro men do!
Wright revealed her lesbianism last in April while promoting her memoir Like Me, though Wright's father, being told the news of her sexuality just hugged her and assured her everything would be OK.
A finger lickin' good end to a long life of lies.
Chely admits it was a book written by Ellen's mother Betty, entitled Love, Ellen: A Mother/Daughter Journey, which helped her find the courage to finally "come out".
