New York(er) State of Mind

We don't know if they are in a New York, or Michigan, or visitors to the Vineyard.

We don't where either are for that matter. But it does look that Austin is not in NC, and Jake is not in LA. What do you want to bet they are somewhere together.

Now both Jake and Austin have said that New York is one of their favorite places.

But what's the New Yorker's take on them?


Well from these it looks a whole lot like Surf and Turf.

Question: You've said that T.T. knows he's T.T....Is it readily acknowledged (to his face) in Hollywood, and just kept a secret from the public?

Dear Glass Closet:
T2 is much more closeted than Clay, even within T-town. Sure, a lot of his coworkers and the corporate big-wigs know what's up, but it's not as acknowledged or discussed openly as it was with Clay.


Ted leaves some wiggle room, but I suspect he's intimating that, unlike Aiken, it is pretty clear that Jake is in the closet as part of his career strategy and, for now, wants his private life to officially remain that way. T-towners, therefore, know not to cross that unspoken, pink social compact by openly acknowledging or discussing his sexuality or personal life. It’s simply not an acceptable topic of polite or casual conversation. This fact, however, does not mean Austin never attends events where Jake is present or avoids meeting him for dinner in a well-coordinated, rendezvous. Just that Austin is not to be openly acknowledged as anything other than another guest or friend.

This really shouldn’t be surprising to anyone when you consider that Jake was in an official showmance from late October 2007-December 2009, and now Austin has been in one since, at least, August 2009. I think it’s fairly obvious, that you don’t go through all these torturous, deceptive “straight” machinations just to be openly recognized as a couple at a post-Oscar party or an exclusive PoP premier insider gathering. I’ve participated in several social situations where half the guests know someone who is sleeping with so-and-so’s wife/husband, or that “Fill in the blank” is really gay, but is on the down-low. Yet, no one will dare discuss the elephant in the room by voluntarily acknowledging the truth. And most, certainly, no one will walk up to a closeted co-worker and say, “How’s your boyfriend, Kyle doing?” even though Kyle is at the same party and we all know why he’s there. Behind close doors is another thing, of course.

Note Ted made sure to add that, “a lot of his coworkers and the corporate big-wigs know what's up,…” so it’s pretty clear, people know. Which means they also know to be discreet. Hollywood is a small town, after all, and the tacit understanding is that Jake’s career plan, at least for now, is to be packaged as Mr. "Bottoms Up"--"It's important for every man to find the right woman." No cherry picking is necessary when Ted is simply reinforcing the inconvenient truth of what it’s like to live a lie.

Well from these it looks a whole lot like Surf and Turf.

And both have to deal with sand in small dark places. Not unlike Maggie and Peter who do tick checks, I wonder if Jake and Austin do sand swiping for each other. Hmm? Yep me too. ;)

LOL maybe it's just a California thing but whenever we hear "surf and turf" the first thing almost everyone thinks of is horses.

surf and turf said...

LOL the perfect pastime for Austin and Jake!

Old pictures of Jake from last summer getting coffee over on IHJ. Looks so similar to this year, even down to the outfit, it's clean shaven Jake that tells you it's last year.

What struck me was the black family truckster he was driving last summer. Even then he was driving family wagons.

Surf and Turf...how is Austin going to explain that injury to OTH?

Well I was waveboarding and the horse that towing me stopped short and I flew off the board did a face plant.

Why a horse and not a boat? Hey I'm all about going green. The hay is a biofuel and the horse makes his own compost.

Austin said...

Well I was waveboarding and everything was going fine but then all of a sudden I got jerked off when my ride started getting bucked really hard by a big strong stallion.

Jakes closeted life has evolved over time. He was a lot more out within Hollywood in the early Toothy days and until he started the bearding with Reese, prompted no doubt by his signing for POP. We all know how that worked out. Plus he and Austin have a bigger secret to hide now - baby tile. HW is like any company though. Management changes, people who wield the power rise and fall and are replaced by others.

Took it easy today to give my sore finger a rest but just dropped by to see what's up. The drawing of Austin surfing is really cool.

I wonder what Ted's next bombshell will be. He has swatted away the trolls with one stoke of his keyboard. The PR trolls have been quiet lately. Ted must have tightened up security after all those leaks.

the real m said...

The impostor is not very smart commenting just below me. I guess he does not bother to read the comments.

Methodical Muser said...

LOL! If trolly can read at all, that is.

what's a stoke? said...

I think the troll imposter is reading the comments, but thinks they're clever by being sarcastic.
