Wheezy old queen ALEC BALDWIN made headlines when he called me a “wheezy old queen” a while back (to my wife’s endless amusement)!
Although The Bloviator and I eventually kissed and made up, so to speak, he’s suddenly desperate to make amends for homophobic slurs fired at me and many other journalists, like ANDERSON COOPER, by financing a kiss-ass (sorry, make that “kickass”) documentary about gay Boston Congressman BARNEY FRANK!
Easier said than done, says my good friend/“New York Post” columnist RICHARD JOHNSON, who reported: “Some prominent gays say they still can’t forgive Baldwin!”
Gay rights activist ALLEN ROSKOFF scoffed at the star’s declaration that “Barney Frank is a personal hero of mine,” and snapped: “All of a sudden Alec Baldwin has a gay hero? Where was his gay hero when he was screaming homophobic slurs?”
And STEVEN GAINES, the openly gay author of “Philistines at the Hedgerow,” charged: “Alec is inherently homophobic. He’s not going to free himself of that anytime soon. If he is executive-producing this to make amends to the gay community, it’s a wrong move.”
