Joe Gregorio is not one of the new MILFs on Bravo's The Real Housewives of Orange County, and his wife Danielle Gregorio does not make her debut as a Real Housewife until the new season premieres on April 24. And yet, the Villa Park husband and father of three felt compelled to announce he's not gay.
Apparently, rumors began swirling about Joe Gregorio's sexual preference before the premiere, supposedly growing so loudly he felt the need to come out … and let everyone know he's not a homosexual.
(I add "apparently" and "supposedly" because I fear this is just another of the several manufactured controversies we hear and read about in the weeks leading up to new seasons of RHOC.)
Well, Joe Gregorio apparently (there I do again) has a "PR team" that banged out the following:
Rumors regarding Joe's sexuality and that he is gay are false and untrue. Joe is a loving husband and father to his three children and has never been unfaithful to Danielle during their time together. Joe takes these defamatory statements against him, his wife, and his family very seriously and is exploring any and all legal options to eradicate them.
No-homo Joe's married to a party planner who was one of only two new cast members Bravo could scrape up because, speaking of rumor-mongering, "nobody wanted to join the show" and "Orange County is one of the lowest paying in the franchise and people with real money aren't interested in the show's antics and drama." That's from one of those never-named sources whose bombshells drop ever more frequently in the weeks leading up to new seasons of RHOC.
As for Danny's hubby, has anyone considered he just might be another "Lyle, The Effeminate Heterosexual," played so brilliantly by Dana Carvey on Saturday Night Live?
