Katya Minskova, a 30-year-old waitress at New York’s Bathtub Gin did an exclusive interview with Gawker where she claimed that, among other things, Fox News TV host and new breaking news director Shepard Smith is a foul-mouthed, gin-swilling hand-smacker who is possibly dating a younger muscle god.
According to Minskova, Smith got impatient and then got loud about the speed, or lack thereof, to refill his and his party’s drinks: “He got up from his table, grabbed my elbow, and started yelling: ‘Where the fuck is my drink! Where is my fucking drink! Get my fucking drink!’ He started smacking his hands, like the back of his right hand into the palm of his left. He was spitting. His veins were popping out.”
When the 49-year-old anchor wasn’t lavishing all that charm on the waitstaff, he was apparently saving the rest for his date, described as a “muscular 6-foot-2 30-something white male” the Bathtub Gin staff referred to as “his boyfriend.” Again, according to Minskova and one other source, the couple likes to hold hands and rest them in each others’ laps under the table. The staff has apparently seen them there on many occasions, but Gawker was unable to attain the name of the secretive stud.
Smith has never publicly addressed his sexuality, but that hasn’t stopped Out magazine from including him on their annual power gays list, nor did it stop conservative wingnut Cliff Kincaid from saying what we’re all thinking anyway. But, if Minskova’s interview is anything to go by, people in glass closets shouldn’t throw (alleged) public tantrums.
