When A Sistah Misses The Signs: Famous Women Who Married Down-Low Men And Didn’t Know It (And A Few Who Did)
And why would someone think Liza Minelli’s stepfather, Mark Herron, was gay? According to reports, back in the day while Herron was married to Garland, he had an affair with Minelli’s husband at the time, Peter Allen. Yikes! Where is Jerry Springer when you need him? In an interview with Newsweek, Minnelli opened up about being too young to realize he wasn’t who she thought he was, but making an effort to stay close to him:
“Honey, I was 17 when I met him. But I was the last one to see him before he died because we stayed friends, and that was tough.”
It is also rumored that her last husband, David Gest, might be gay as well, but he has said that it’s just not true. Whatever he is, all we know is their wedding was an uncomfortable mess and the divorce was even messier.
