    First of all, who really gives two shits? Like there aren’t persons here in Queertyland who are battling health crises???

    Second, I am certaily glad that Miss Hayes’ BF is feeling fine now and has “beat it… he’s been cancer-free for more than a year”. Stage four cancer means it has metastasized and is spreading throughout the body. Unfortunatley five year survival is very difficult once it has reached this stage and to be “cancer free” almost a miracle. Seems more like a “happily ever after script” written by a publicist…………

    Would have thought celebrities and their extended families deal with cancer like all the rest of us minions……..

    Tila Tequila is not a celebrity. She’s also not gay or bisexual.

    She’s just a wannabe who never will be.
