By now you've all heard about the 'Catfishing' incident involving me and Kris Jenner's alleged boyfriend, music industry exec. Corey Gamble.
Yesterday, I received an email from TMZ asking me to call news director Mike Walters (a close friend of Jenner's).
When I called Walters, he told me someone was impersonating Corey and talking to the media. He said he wanted to give me a "heads up" on their "big story" that was about to go live. I wondered why TMZ would deign to give me a courtesy call, considering they've been stealing my scoops for years without crediting me.
In hindsight, I should have known it was all a hoax. The guy claiming to be Corey Gamble was very obviously gay. I knew he was a flaming queen from the moment he opened his mouth. The longer we talked, the more flamboyant he became.
Red flags were fluttering everywhere, but I believed I was speaking to the real Corey, and that the whole thing was being orchestrated by Kris Jenner to make Corey's homosexuality a plot line on their reality TV show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
I did not want to out the man on my blog. I knew if I mentioned that I thought Corey was gay, my readers would go HAM on him, and I didn't want that.
Please be clear that I don't know if the real Corey is gay or not. All I know is, the person who claimed to be him was flaming.
Now I do believe Kris and Corey's relationship is a sham -- especially since TMZ claims they are not even having sex. What Cougar dates a 32-year-old man if not for sex?
If Corey isn't in on this -- and that's a big IF -- I predict Kris will eventually kick him to the curb the same way Kim Kardashian divorced Kris Humprhies after using him to boost TV ratings.
Coincidentally, season 10 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is currently filming.
