Rumors that Queer Eye co-hosts Antoni Porowski and Jonathan Van Ness are boyfriends have been swirling for a while. Then yesterday, Karamo Brown confirmed them to be true. Or so everyone thought.

Earlier this week, the Fab Five appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, during which Porowski and Van Ness could be seen holding hands throughout. Later, Van Ness posted a backstage photo of himself and Porowski to Instagram. In the comments, Brown wrote: “I love you both! And for all who are asking. It’s real. They are a couple and in love. First Fab 5 couple.”
We said yesterday that there was a good chance the whole thing was an elaborate joke, and that the guys were just having fun drumming up publicity for the latest season of Queer Eye.
Turns out, that might be the case.
Or maybe not?
We’re still not sure.
The whole thing has our heads spinning.
Van Ness took to Twitter to clear things up. Sort of. Yesterday, he tweeted: “Also for clarification, @antoni & I are a couple…. of very close friends who run a satirical couple account and may fall in love someday, but that day is not necessarily today. Love yew hauxs.”

They’re having a bit of fun, promoting the show and themselves, and aren’t really a couple. It’s not so hard to figure out.
My comment suggesting this seemed like P.R. for the show was removed???
I have a hot take on this: WHO CARES?
If they are a couple then it will be the death of the show when they break up. I like the show okay but sometimes Jonathan’s flirting with the non-gay men is too over the top. And how about giving back to the Queer community sometime?
Van Ness is a HOT mess. Always. Period.
There is a certain gut reaction that comes over me every time I see their photo. I don’t know why, I just go “Ick!” and want to hurl.
Please they both make me hurl too kinda like looking at diarrhea in the shitter.
