The Down Low Files: Columbus Short

Rumors about dancer-turned-actor Columbus Short being a member of the tooty booty club have been running rampant for some time now. Over the weekend, Short was spotted arriving at Dulles International Airport outside of D.C. As you know, D.C. rivals only Atlanta as the destination for urban batty boys.

The caption under the photo on identified the man walking two steps behind Columbus as Cory Bold, a producer of sorts who has produced remixes for Marques Houston among others.

Here’s a close up of Cory Bold. Need I say more?

This pic was taken by the same pap at Dulles International airport on the same day. The kid in the photo is Chosen Wilkins, aka Dustin Wilkins. But isn’t that the same Cory Bold walking two steps behind Chosen? The sharp eyed among you will recognize Chosen as the con artist who was accused of impersonating Missy Elliott (among others) in radio interviews back in the day [LINK].

Chosen was also spotted recently at a basketball game with Big Tigger, who personally emailed to vehemently deny knowing who Chosen was. LOL.

Anyway, what are the odds that Columbus and Chosen would arrive at the same airport on the same day accompanied by the same flaming producer? Of course the simple explanation could be that Cory Bold picked the guys up from the airport for a recording session. But we know better.

    yes we know better. If you dont want people to know you are gay that is fine. not everyone wants to come out the closet. its tough out there. BUT if you are going to stay in the closet, DO NOT start messing with women and having men on the side. do not bring innocent women into your sordid mess of a life!

    @Kym …

    Yeah … I wasn’t aware of that culture really. And I personally liked a few of the songs that were on RuPaul’s upcoming album …

    Some of those men would put alot of fashionista females to shame. I was really taken back.

    RTB – I can always count on you for a good 1.

    When people are “suspect” it’s not breaking news if they are seen with somebody who is flaming per say. I want to know who the REAL DL brothers are that are NOT suspect and who also may be “thugged” out in the industry that would be breaking news.

    I do not think everybody in the industry is gay though.

    @ Daisy he probably isn’t. Its me. I’m so out of the loop on certain things. Let me go Google him. I see Kym said he was in this xmas. I saw that movie & I hope this isn’t the guy who played on the with Boris & Nicole. (Which most ppl probably don’t remember bc upn snatched it off so fast. Thought it was a good show.)

    & what’s up with The Game. It hasn’t been as good as it usually is. I did feel bad for Tarsha letting her own insurities ruin a good relationship.

    as a former resident of the urreah and a current resident of Atlanta, Lovely Lady I hate to say it but you’re in denial. DC has a ridiculous amount of gay & suspect (or as Russ Parr says it “gay-friendly”) males running around that little city. The only reason DC isn’t beating Atlanta hands down is because it’s a smaller metro area.

    @daisy – good point on people who are suspect — I totally bypassed the topic, cause this is not BREAKING NEWS IMO …
    Now … if we could get some exposure on some of these rappers or athletes, we would be in BUSINESS … SMH — no seriously, I kind of don’t even wrap myself in the who is strsight & who is NOT … as long as I am not in bed with you, doesn’t matter. Also if you speak out against homosexuality and you partake in the same problem – then its that person who I have something against.
    In terms of last Friday — umm I had a busy long weekend, can’t remember what I wore on Friday. Refresher???

    and i must admit that columbo DOES look hella homo in that pic. i know i know…you cain’t tell by a pic or what does homo look like…idk what it looks like. but he DOES in that pic. and this lil tid bit here i found for those who did not know he busted up his own marriage by grinding up on brit spears…. maybe that was a cover?

    Britney Spears’ former dancer Columbus Short last year revealed his relationship with the singer helped break up his marriage. “It’s true I slept with Britney, [but] we never had sex because another person was in the room at the time,” he tells Star magazine. “We shared a bed and were really close, kissing and hugging. The chemistry was magical … our feelings were so strong.” Meanwhile, his wife was at home, pregnant with their first child. “It would be fair to say Britney caused major problems in our marriage,” says Short, obviously forgetting it would be fair to say he caused the majority of the problem. “Sadly, we’re now getting divorced.”

    @Isc I saw the Game. I am tired of everybody right now on that darn show. I heard Tom Joyner said they would be back for another season but I will wait on CW to confirm that. Boris and Nicole hosted love n relationships last night on the radio. I remember their TV show it was wack. Brian White is a little suspect but cute to me as well.

    @Iyonah you gave me a hand clap cause I said I refused to label Chris after ONE incident. I agree I could care less who is gay/bi but I am nosey…lol I guess I do not care in the sense I will still support your art or talent if it’s good.

    All I want to know is can ya boy Rocko afford the airfare because I am certain he would have been in full attendance at the DL Party, dookie stains and all(LOL). Also, say it ain’t so. Word on the street is ya girl Monica is rocking faked out designer bags. Please squash this rumor with a quickness. Mo always looks really cute, but her bags do look a bit – how shall we say – OFF. Please get a denial with the quickness (LOL).

    Lol @ Mizz Dallas I think I saw a pic of him where he was apart of the iddy bitty dyck committee.

    True story.

    I knew a guy who thang was so small when he got up the condom fell off.

    @ Daisy a lot of people thought the show was corny. I liked it. Every episode (all 5 of them) was funny 2 me. & I loved the girl who played Brian’s wife.

    The Game better step their game up.

    my two cents on the game….at this point i wish melanie would go back to crying. YES i know i said once i was tired of her crying…but now she is too fruity. gonna need for them to make up their MIND on what they want her character to be.

    kelly pitts might fight tasha (ala toni slapping the hail outta joan that time) when she find out tasha mack set jason up with ole girl. glad they finally gave malik some depth with this “who my daddy is story line”

    Nina says:

    My friends were just talking about how crazy it is to really date in the ATL because its sooooo many men on the DL. It would be nice if someone like Sandra just posted a list of all the industry DL Men to shed some light on this…hint, hint.

    Daisy says:

    @Isc I watched the show as long as it was on but it was wack and corny to

    @the game I am still holding out hope that the baby isnt I want them to CALM Tasha down she is just the sterotypical black woman and I want them to tone all that down. She is a fool and I laugh at her but enough already.

    @Shania I saw Cover as well recently and was not It was very predictable.

    Bird says:

    Oh I see. This is a guilt by association thing. Columbus must be gay if he is near a gay guy at the airport. Or if he has a gay friend he is gay. Or if he works with gay people he is gay. Ok, I got it now.

    Yall leave Brian alone, lmao. I try to ignor the gay rumors about him. Small penis & all he has a nice body & face. Some men are good to just look at… even if they would never look at you.

    @ Kwallace lmao… I remember you saying Mel cried too much. I forgot all about the hook up date Tarsha did. Trying to remember who the celeb date was with. (Damn, I need to leave that stuff alone)

    @ Daisy I understand where u r coming from with them toning Tarsha down… but I think she balances out the show with medschool Mel & I wanna be black (no offense) Kelly.

  43. 43
    Daisy says:

    @The game if they do indeed manage to come back for one more season they need to add some new characters/football players. I like Jason and Stacy but I bet they put him back with Kelly. I am ready for them to add Hill Harper and Mels real life hubby to the show.

    yes they do need new actors/actress, I wont new plots..

    Im still holding to i know that is not derwin baby…

    donnia says:

    Don’t blame Sandra for putting folks on front street who are dipping and diving. Sorry folks, the majority of industry folks are gay/bi/tri or whatever. The reason so many people know who’s who is the DL crew is because they have lots of “secret events” where they really get their “freaky deaky” on much like the alledged event above. Please don’t be naive or star struck folks once you get through the smoke and mirrors, you will probably find, although you can rock the same CLs, LVs and be neighbors, industry folks are not like “regular” folks.

    Sandra, I am wondering if you will ever do a story on how Kim and Sarah met Sean when they were working as call girls for Marvelette in the ATL. If not true, please dispute (LOL).

    ReadTheBlog says:

    The Game needs a tragedy written into the story line…like Jane can get killed in a car wreck and Mel and Derwin can be stuck raising the baby together… or Mel can catch HIV with all the sleeping around she’s doing. Or she can get pregnant and not know who the father is, ir Tasha can get pregnant with her old ass.

  53. 53
    iscream says:

    Mizz that’s Puffy and his baby mamma’s.

    @ Donnia I’m glad you said it about these industry people. That has nothing to do with Sandra. Most of the people holding the almighty pen (big bosses) are gay and you gotta lay to pay.

    Even if that baby isn’t Derwin’s is he going to want Mel after Mcdreamy? She cheated regardless of that baby’s DNA.

    & I still think Janea told Derwin about the doctor.

  54. 54
    Anti-believer says:

    Donnia…what is “regular folks”?

    People who are in the industry are regular folks who have a job, eat and sleep, pull their pants up the same way as you and I, party here and there, pay rent/mortgage and other bills.

    As far as Chris… well, he was a dancer but not all are gay but since you caught him flying with suspect it is likely true. I think I know who the bottom is. Cute couple btw.

    I guess i better make my move the next i see him at the gym.

    To Sandra & my family posters:

    I just wanted to let you know after all of my time BS’ing on SR blog, I got a good raise and a bonus NO im not AIG employee…lol! I was really surprised being that I’m always blogging, on the cell & company phone,texting while blogging, taking an extensive executive lunch to neimans marcus, saks, to BS with some of my co-workers gossiping, and listening to my Aunt Wendy on-line while blogging on SR, shopping on-line, catching up on my face book, basically NOT being productive at work, some-days I feel like I work for my paycheck which really its that bad, compared to me NOT working at all 60% of the time. So I just want to take this time to thank you all for the laughter you’re the reason why I breathe…

    Yes, it is true about the stolen royalties. It wasn’t much– about $5000 apiece. It’s also true that one of the group members copyrighted the group’s name without the other members’ knowledge or their permission. That is why there will never be a Xscape reunion.

But its some crazy thing that happen when people tour together.
