The cat is outta the bag. Redheaded '80s mall-touring pop queen Tiffany publicly outed New Kids on the Block member Jonathan Knight late last week, but she then backtracked and claimed that she "really didn't know that was the wrong thing to say." Tiff, really?
Tiff was a guest on Bravo's What What Happens Live late Thursday night to promote her upcoming Syfy movie with fellow '80s teen pop queen Debbie Gibson, the so-bad-it-has-to-be-good Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. Host Andy Cohen asked, "Did you have anything [romantic] with any of the New Kids on the Block?" Tiff and NKOTB toured together when each of their stars were rising and it was rumored that Tiff and Jonathan Knight were an item.
She casually mentioned that she dated Jonathan Knight, "the quiet one, the shy one," adding that "he became gay later." Commenting on her role in "turning him," Tiffany continued, "I had issues with that! I was thinking maybe I did [turn him]. But no, now looking back when we were dating, he was so much fun -- we used to do facials together, he was so easy to talk to."
Knight addressed the outing via his Twitter account, posting: "I'm so devastated. How can I not remember getting facials???????" FACIALS? I am not going there. If you thought it, your mind is in the gutter. Facials, yeah. Facials. Tiffany expressed remorse via Twitter, to which the cordial Knight responded: "Tiff, please don't lose any sleep over it! I know you weren't being mean and I found it to be funny!"
Seriously, Twitter makes everything public in the '11.
Are you shocked over this revelation that Jonathan Knight is gay?
