Chely Wright Is Engaged To Lauren Blitzer, August Wedding Planned


Country singer Chely Wright, star of the Internet’s favorite 2010 guessing game, is engaged to girlfriend Lauren Blitzer, the development director of Faith in America in New York City. (She is also, apparently the “corporate giving manager” at GLSEN.) She’s also the co-author of Same Sex in the City: So Your Prince Charming Is Really a Cinderella, which landed her a flashy “lesbian friendship” piece in the Times in 2005. Chely and Lauren met doing their LGBT activism work, we’re told, and they will marry in Connecticut on August 20.

      Congratulations! Incidentally,I have seen Chely Wright on television as a representive for GLSEN, and she appears to be an excellent advocate for LGBT students.

      Oh, please, in 2 years they’ll have split up. Neither of them look genuine to me. I could be wrong but that’s my impression.

      They look more like fake lesbians with long flowing hair designed to titillate sleazy straight guys.

      Wright and Blitzer first met through GLSEN – an organization in which Chely serves as a national spokesperson and her partner Lauren formerly served as Manager of Special Events. Our cameras caught up with Wright at the GLSEN event that night where an emotional Chely talked about how coming out changed her life and career.

      Wow, Jason and you live alone with 3 cats, have a steroid problem, work as an interior decorator and then bake cookies all evening right? I can tell that just by your internet persona, I can judge you right here and now. I can also say you have a fly by night existance with men and will never settle down. See, how great is it to be judged by a total stranger?
