This week the hype-surrounding the "down low" phenom refuses to die. Terry Mcmillan outs her man, Luther dies and is outed from the grave, R Kelly is outing brothaz on the radio and this morning's Oprah jumps on the bandwagon. Like many other shows, hers is on summer hiatus ... but that didn't stop execs from re-running JL King's interview. If you never saw A Secret Sex World: Living on the "Down Low, here was yet another opportunity to watch JL's "how you doin'?" routine. "
JL: I don't go to gay bars to look for a man. Not my style.
Oprah: Where do you go?
JL: I'll go wherever you go!
Memo to JL King: Oprah really hasn't been anywhere looking for a man. But we get your drift.
We feared that the Terry McMillan-Jonathan Plummer debacle would compel many people to re-visit the supposed down low phenomenon. Perhaps it's already started; Star Jones' marriage to Al Reynolds is being re-examined. More rumors are flying about Al's supposed club-hopping after the BET awards. Not the best of news. We don't fault a brotha for clubbing. But the Santa Monica strip? What, no flava for Al?
