It’s not like I ever had a chance, but…


Growing up in Puerto Rico, we swooned to the cuteness of the Menudo boys. We would fight over our favorites and would “assign” each other the group members. We made plans to find them, make them fall in love with our wonderfulness, marry them and be the envy of all the girls of the WORLD!

I can tell you that yesterday, a lot of worlds were crushed and a lot of worlds were jubilant. When Ricky Martin announced that he was gay, I am pretty sure that not a lot of people were surprised. Actually, I don’t think anyone really was. We were all in the know without him saying anything. Still, the announcement cemented that knowledge and all the girls’ hearts died a little. I am sure that there are a lot of men out there that gave each other high-fives yesterday: the ones that will say every day to their in-denial-wives/girlfriends “I told you so!” and the ones that have been dreaming all this time about finding him, make him fall in love and marry him and be the envy of all the girls/homosexual men in the WORLD!

Still, at least we can all enjoy the eye candy… Right?

I wasn't shocked in the least. I guess it was assumed for so long that it was old news when he fessed up. Kinda like with Clay Aiken. I mean didn't we all know?!

No one really was... it's just that Clay didn't look THAT good. Now it just doesn't feel right to ogle...

I felt the same way when I found out George Michael was gay. I know the shorts he wore when he was in Wham! should've been a dead giveaway, but I was really young, I didn't know!!
