Tough Decisions

Is Future MSNBC Host And Hollywood Royalty Ronan Farrow Bi?


Ronan Farrow, future MSNBC host and son of Mia Farrow and either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra, apparently likes both guys and gals.

Gossip guy Richard Johnson over at Page Six is reporting that the Rhodes Scholar, writer, and Yale Law grad has “come under pressure” by some gays to come out of the closet in advance of his MSNBC debut.

MSNBC had been in development talks with Farrow for months, and though he’s short on on-camera experience, he’s served as an advisor in multiple capacities in the Obama administration, has written for The Wall Street Journal and will publish his first book Pandora’s Box: How American Military Aid Creates America’s Enemies via Penguin Press in 2015.

Since coming to prominence early last year, Farrow has been linked with everyone from fashion designer Tory Burch to Selena Gomez, but a friend of his told Johnson that his interests go beyond women. “He’s not in the closet,” the friend says. “He’s been with guys, but he’s also been with girls. He’s open about both.” Farrow is reportedly close to Jon Lovett, the out former speech writer for President Obama.

MSNBC is, of course, home to prominent gays Rachel Maddow, Thomas Roberts, and Steve Kornacki, and Farrow would seem to be a good fit for their brand of wonky political journalism shows. Though another friend maintained that Farrow “doesn’t want to be labeled as gay or straight or bisexual,” an openly bi male media personality would certainly be something different on the airwaves, even on MSNBC.

Perhaps Ronan’s show won’t be the only thing coming out in January.
