Because it’s so gratifying watching this fabulous chick get her due. … I’m not really that into Broadway musicals, but I am going to make a special trip to go see Kristin Chenoweth and Sean Hayes in Promises, Promises. I don’t even remember which one of them is gay anymore and I don’t care.”

Did Gregory Michael help fuel the ‘Bachelor’ break-up?

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: Kinda hate to give any more publicity to the sham of a couple that was Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi but I don’t mind giving some space to Gregory Michael who has always been a sweetheart to me.
Gregory is straight in real life but had a steamy starring role in the gay soap Dante’s Cove and currently has a more toned-down role as a gay college student in the ABC Family series Greek.
So what is he doing involved in this Jake-Vienna mess?
Amid reports that Vienna was possibly involved with him after they were seen at a charity event over the weekend Gregory said to RadarOnline: “I’m not a homewrecker. Vienna and I met on Saturday night at the Children’s Oncology Prom, a charity that I am very passionate about.”
He told Ok! that he and Vienna “hit it off and hung out and danced the night away” adding, “She made it very clear that it was over with Jake.”
If a relationship does develop, it sounds like it won’t be tough for it to be less exciting than whatever was going on – or not going on – between Jake and Vienna.
