    Interesting- I never heard this. Nice of her to apologize, stupid of her to slip up like that.

    Oh, right. I should've remembered that, because of Wahlberg doing Blue Bloods and that simultaneously. (He does a good job on Blue Bloods -- sometimes I look at him being the no-nonsense cop and think, "I can't believe you're one of the New Kids!" :lol: )

    It's my understanding that Knight isn't really too upset about it. He's been out for a few years now - it's not news.

    I thought it was gonna be Joey McIntyre for sure. I saw him on TV in an interview and thought he'd be the gay one. Guess I was wrong.

    Er, both methinks. Though the only one who read gay to me during their heyday was Jordan Knight.

    But, yeh, no big whoop. Jon Knight has been open for a long while.

    Oh, okay. I knew there was a reason I was on the fence with Joe. FWIW, I think his singing is bad and he looks like the younger version of the actor who plays Steve on Sex and the City. Jordan was so kind, giving sea critters to many of his adoring female fans :saint:.

    When did he have time to fish???

    Is there a one gay per group rule?:p

    ETA: I hope your second post doesn't mean what I think it does and if it does how on earth do you know?

    I completely agree. He's decent in some other movies, as well. My brother really admired his work, and would hate it when I'd say "Oh, the New Kid?" to bug him. :p

    We use to call Jordan "crab boy" because rumor had it he always had a case of them. Fans always knew Jon was gay because he was the only one not bed hopping with the groupies at the hotels.

    BTW, someone should really educate Tiffany that people don't turn gay due to a bad relationship. Really hope she wasn't serious when she said that.

    I thought Joey McIntyre was like 12yo back then? Was he sleeping with the groupies too?

    Didn't they get really successful with their 2nd album? He must have been 14-15 by then I think. I don't know about Joey specifically, but if not it wasn't because he was too young.

    I am confused by all of this because I thought Knight was "out" but just never made a media spectacle about it. He never wanted to appear on a show or out himself in a book like some other pseudo celebrities we know. ;) So I don't think Tiffany did him any harm and she wouldn't have said what she said if she knew he was still in the closet.

    Same here. Joey was a boy "in their day," so I never gave him much thought. But, then, years later, I saw him on DWTS. beep beep! :lol:

    And crabs, although they can be transmitted sexually, are also about bad hygiene as well. Jon always was so polite in his interviews too.

    I know that sounded a bit :eek: to me as well.

    :lol: now, you stop that....

    :rofl: Twelve-year olds get bonahs up theah in Bahhhston too, wicked bonahs they do!

    Jonathan Knight looks a lot like Brian Orser in the pic used in that article.

    I opened this thread because I had no idea who Tiffany or Jonathan Knight is. Still don't really.

    I'm more disturbed that they are 39 and 42 and having this conversation over Twitter.

    Maybe these two D-listers thought they were alone, as there didn't seem to be anyone around.

    From the article link (post #1):

    My guess is that when she jokingly said this, she meant it as a joke. But I'm just guessing... :)

    Two of the most on-point posts on this thread - and funniest :rofl:.
    The E! Channel showed scenes from that execrable TV movie they'll be starring in about some swamp monster. They engage in a Dynasty-style catfight. :rolleyes:

    Jon was actually always my favourite NK.

    As for Joey, he tried his hand in acting for a while - I think he was on broadway, and he was also in that Boston Public TV show. And I think it was recently announced that he and his wife are expecting another baby.

    If it weren't for the inclusion of the Backstreet Douches, I'd definitely go see NKOTB's show.

    Jon was also my favorite, when I finally got to a New Kids concert, he had already left the group. I saw Joey on Broadway in Wicked, he wasn't bad.
