The interwebs, known for its love of an unsubstantiated rumor, set its speculative sights on the bromance between former hockey stud and current LGBT ally Sean Avery and Bravo HBIC/mustache aficionado Andy Cohen.
reader of spy for the gossip site The Fame Driven wrote in to break the non-news of a secret relationship between Avery and Cohen:
I’m not sure if you are aware or not but Andy Cohen has been dating former NHL star Sean Avery for almost a year and a half now, it will be two years in March. And get this, they are secretly ENGAGED! There have been rumors for years in the NHL league about Sean Avery’s sexuality, but he has always vehemently denied it, Sean even went as far as to “date” a beard girlfriend (Elisha Cuthbert), who he was never even remotely into, to cover up him receiving backlash from his NHL teammates and internally in the NHL for being gay.
The spy goes on to claim that Avery is gay/bi to his friends and family while Cohen just wants to take their relationship public so he can rub it in BFF Anderson Cooper‘s face. More or less. Oh, and Sean and Andy are expected to “finally come out” publicly with their relationship “sometime end of this year or next year.”
When confronted with the rumor, Andy chose to let his significant other handle it:

— Sean Avery (@imseanavery) September 4, 2013
The attached screenshot of The Fame Driven’s article has since been deleted, but Bravo Andy — showing the kind of teamwork upon which every good secret gay relationship is built — posted it to his Facebook with the caption: “How did they find out!?!”
Crafty. Very crafty. Meanwhile, of all the fake fiancés to nab, good werq scoring Sean Avery, Ms. Cohen.
