Don’t Quit Hollywood, Neil. At Least Not All Of It

There are rumors going around Neil Patrick Harris wants to quit the biz and become a full-time dad and leave LA and move to NYC and get out of the industry he’s known since he was a kid. And while such gossip should always be taken with a truckload of salt, if the rumors do pan out, please, Neil, give up your sitcom and your movie roles, just don’t say goodbye to award show hosting gigs forever.

    or read his twitter: “Rumor Watch 2010: I’m absolutely not leaving LA or the business. Errant reporting, Popeater. Total bunk. Oh, and good morning everyone!

    NPH appears to be a pretty intelligent grounded person. He spent a long time in celebrity siberia after his Doogie Houser gig scraping by. He is making over $200,000.00 per episode for his current TV gig. He has seen what happens when that very bountifull well runs dry, doubt he would ditch it especially with two kids on the way…………..

    More publicity stuff…

    @PlaysWell: It’s not just the money or the attention, it’s the thrill of doing the thing you were meant to do—or at least one of them.

    But yeah, the money sure comes in handy!


    @Jeffree: Glad I can cancel the St.Bernard search party for u……. NPH definatley is talented, funny no one questions that a Gay man is playin such a straight horn dog……..

    I could live quite happily with that kind of coin for a 3 episode per year series! :p


    ps: Is anyone else noticing that your post appears, then disappears, then appears again?? Is Queerts goin the moderate and review route??

    Mr. Queerts…….little help here?

    @Plays Well: LOL.
    I’ve been working lots of hours, animating some videos and keeping “Alpine Lace” very happy.

    This site loads very slowly lately, and comments go unpublished — even the ones that don’t pass through the autoflag system.

    At first I thought it was just a problem with my browser, but I’m not having the same issues with any other sites.

    I hope Queerty fixes the issues.

    Who really gives a fuck?

    I mean seriously.. Was anybody paying attention to NPH before we knew about his love for the Cock? He certainly wasn’t getting any press, so why now? He’ll always be little Doogie Houser to me and little else..

    @Black Pegasus: Amen! I don’t get the furor over NPH. He’s not an exceptional actor, or particularly funny, or more than average looking. It seems like the only reason he’s so prominent at this point is because of savvy marketing of the fact that he’s gay.

    Nothing against the guy, I just don’t get it.
