Ray Richmond: Merv Griffin Aftermath

rrich.jpg

Ray Richmond, bloody but unbowed, sets the record straight about his Merv Griffin column and the subsequent chaos. Richmond also adds:

I have to wonder if the response in defense of keeping Griffin’s secret life a secret post-mortem would have been as acute had he died penniless and forgotten. It would seem there is a direct relationship between the size of one’s estate and the level of security guarding his or her heretofore undisclosed sexual orientation. And it appears that $1.6 billion will buy an awful lot of closet space.

Told ya–Hollywood is a tough town.
