High School Confidential

Austin going back to school as a teacher for LOL, makes you wonder what high school was like for him at his alma mater McCallum High in Austin.



We've seen the pictures




And recently the website Everything Austin got a chance to ask Austin some questions and one was about high school.

In Season 7 of One Tree Hill there was a lot of talk about high school Julian, how would you describe your high school years?
High School – I don’t know where I fit it. I ran in many different crowds. I wasn’t a jock, although I was an athlete. I wasn’t a nerd, but I graduated in the top ten from my class. I wasn’t a popular kid, but I was friends with them. I wanted to be friends with everyone. I didn’t belong to one group. I was just Austin.



Doesn't mention show choir, well having the tape of him singing the solo for Yankee Doodle Dandy on network TV might have been enough.



BTW: Did you know that Austin took piano lesson while at USC?
(thank you to our special friend of OMG for that Austin trivia)


Wonder what other hidden talents he's got and not telling.
; )

Guess Jake has a new Apple Iphone. Maggie as talking about it in her interview on CBS The Early Show.

Wanna make a bet Austin has one too. Nice feature that you can talk and see each other at the same time.

Maggie was also on Regis and Kelly and Regis asked about the cat story with Maggie making Jake drinking out of a bowl. Check it out: Live with Regis & Kelly

^^ I kept trying to watch that on People.com yesterday, I think it was, and I could never get that thing to load. Poor Jake. Everyone's seen his grade school picture; and now the world knows his older sister made him drink out of a bowl like a cat. Geez. lol.

Methodical Muser said...

This is too funny. Looks like Reeseypoo has figured out that the only way she can get good press is to follow Jake around. "Charitable Reunion"? How about "Mother and Child Reunion"? And, yes, that's a dig about her age. I think this is what is called "unintended consequences," or "collateral damage." Jake has moved on, but his Mini-Five O'Clock Shadow can't seem to "quit" him. LOL!

Oh Austie-boy, careful with preaching those prophetic quotes of wisdom; they have a way of painting a big ol' bulls-eye right on your back. And unless you can walk the walk and talk the talk....

I've decided I'm not going to expend alot of wasted typing. At this point, these are the same ol' people who keep coming on here arguing, shaking fingers, calling names and slandering.

They know the score. They know what is believed by a few of us. There is nothing new to go over.

I'd rather watch my laundry spin in the dryer than reiterate, explain, and argue things that have been discussed 1000 times on here, you know? It's just stupid.

destiny said...

PG, I was hoping Jake would look at what has gone on the past few years and do some changing. But with Austin bearding and hopping all over the world this summer I just do not see any evidence of change.

And maybe it is just me and all the people I know whp have kids, but I just do not think it is good for a choild to be basically under house arrest, even if kids enjoy just running around the yard. A child needs new experiences to grow, and other kids to get sopcialized. Doubt a few weeks a year with Ramona cuts it.

destiny said...

Sorry for the typos, lousy at texting.

prairiegirl said...

Man, she's like a bad case of shingles, isn't she?

Reese Witherspoon is like a recurring case of shingles.

I bet Jake rues the day his people set him up with her.

You're right, M&M, it's her that can't let him go. She's getting minimal coverage with Dark Socks, Dark Shorts Jim. LOL. I'm beginning to think his revenge over having to put up with her now is to keep dressing like Cousin Eddie.

Truth Lies and Ted
Grab your passport and get ready for all this dish (and a side of Jake Gyllenhaal deliciousness) in this week's whirl-wind episode of Truth, Lies & Ted.

Blind Vice

How interesting how low our Toothy-Tile-era, wildly talked about bisexual Blind boy Harland Fuss chose to lay for several years. So much so, he decided to go and get married! Gosh, do you think Harland really isn't into the boys, anymore?

Well, you know, certain habits die hard:

See, Harland just decided—based on his continued ho-hum career performance—that he needed to amp things up a bit. And if he couldn't haul out any more blockbuster projects, he'd simply try the get-married-and-procreate path. After all, that sometimes works for fading, closeted gay stars who are looking for a tabloid leg-up with their popularity, right?

Uh, not always, as poor Fey Oiled-Tush has discovered. But, we digress.

Harland just hasn't been able to quash his man-on-man desires (hard as he's tried, poor thing). And what with his career hitting the back-burner 'n' all, he decided not that long ago that he'd do the domestic dance, find a chick to fake-tango with and see if he could muster back up that ol' bedroom eyes thing. Onscreen, mind you.

Because the deal is (and, trust, there is a deal here, folks) that Harland's beard was promised a career-boost herself, in the arrangement. And she, like a lot of desperate wannabes in this business, bit. In fact, she chomped on the behind-the-scenes opportunity so fast, Mr. Fuss, always a more thoughtful dude than Tinseltown's used to, wondered what the hell he'd gotten himself into.

But it was far too late to go back on his devil-dealing scenario.

And It Ain't: John Krasinski, Ryan Reynolds, Jerry O'Connell

prairiegirl said...

I don't think it is good for a child to be under "house arrest". I wish Jake could have walked out of, crud, what was the name of that place now, I forget. Lulu, Lollipop, L-something with his own kid.

The thing is, I don't know what he has planned for the next 12 months. Him & Austin cannot hide on Martha's Vineyard for the next 21 entire summers. They can't continue to use other people's kids as shields and camouflage. Jake can't keep filming in pap-free cities and far-away countries to try and maintain a private life. If he wants that movie star status, a private life just doesn't always go hand in hand with that.

And every scowl at the paps and every vehicle musical chairs game isn't going to make those paps go away.

I am willing to wait and see. It doesn't mean I have to always like what I see. I'm not a rollover.

But I sincerely believe there have been very valid reasons for the way it has mostly gone thus far.

Until we have kids ourselves, there's no way to fully understand the protective nature and the extent of a parent's love. A parent will do anything for their child.

You could easily spend 3-4 hrs discussing the entire situation. And Jake & Austin have both shown some lack of good judgment, but man, so have I in my life.

I believe Jake is a good person. I think Austin is too. I think they're both pretty intelligent individuals. Their situation is unique and it has had a boatload of obstacles to overcome. If you were to write on a chalkboard all of the obstacles they have had to overcome to get to this point today, it would be a pretty long list.

I'm not saying I have agreed with some of the routes taken nor do I like Austin's over the top bearding. But for right now, I'm still throwing in my support.

prairiegirl said...

Gosh dang, blogger wasn't kidding. That comment was too long. lol.

Huh. So is Harland Fuss Orlando Bloom? That whole deal is pathetic, you know that? Never in any of their pictures does Orlando Bloom look like he has any life in him. I don't at all get the big deal about him. Now, he just looks whipped. Done. Desperate.

At least Austin & Jake's family has come from real love. I won't say honest love only because it's my personal belief that when they beard, they are being dishonest not only to the public but themselves and to each other.

But regardless, their kids came from real love. Anyone who would go through 2 1/2 years of Ice Maiden willingly has got to be doing it for a huge reason.

Well said PG. Really well said.

I might not always fully agree with the choices they've made, but they are their choices and it's their lives.

They've made them based on their own experiences and feelings and circumstances, many of which we're not privy to and never will be. So it's impossible for us with absolute certainty to say why they have made those choices.

And I agree that their family came from true love. It doesn't matter what we personally think of their choices, those children came from love and will always be loved and that is what will stick with them.

wastrel said...

I guess Austi must have two phones then - the special twin iPhone to Jake's and then the one he uses all the time to post to Twitter - his Blackberry. Doesn't it seem like such a waste, especially if you're trying to be so green, to keep one phone for just video chats? Someone needs to ask him about that on Twitter.

Special K said...

It's call a personal phone and a business phone. You know a lot of regular people have that too.

prairiegirl said...

lol.

Man......We are getting a downpour right now. I had to run from Long John Silver's to my car - well, I didn't run. I walked fast as I could, lol. I could've run but my back would hurt the next day. That was the hardest rain I have ever walked in. And I have gotten caught in some real drenchers in my old park walking days. To the point when my shoes were squishing, lol.

I mean, as soon as I opened that door? It was just pelting me. Luckily I had taken my hoodie because I knew that LJ's was going to be freezing. And it was, of course. Criminetley's, that chair was so cold, it wasn't funny.

I've even seen it rain horizontally before, but this was just unreal. It was beyond horizontal, lol. You couldn't even see.

I can't get over that. That was just the hardest rain I've ever been in. LOL. My shorts were soaked. And then you walk into the air conditioned apartment and it's just frozen.

Jersey Tom said...

I can't consider anything Jake and Austin have done to be groundbreaking. When they come out and they are taking their kid to the flea market then I will call it groundbreaking. Lots of people have sorrogate kids. Nothing groundbreaking about that. I guess SK means that the risk J and A took to have their own kids in the secrecy of the HW closet was groundbreaking. I can understand that but the route NPH and his patner have taking in having a family is truly historic and groundbreaking and some people dare to call them famewhores. No I call them role models.

Not to be a downer because I like the way Jake and Austin are admired by many on OMG. I can't say I admire them right now but am holding out hope that if indeed they are still a couple and they have a chid we will get to see them together soon. It would indeed be so sweet.

Harland Fuss is Orlando Bloom.

Harland Fuss is from an old blind item with Gus (forget the rest of the name) which was supposed to be Viggo.

August 20, 2010 11:37 PM

just saying said...

yes Ted told long time ago Orlando and viggo were lovers during lord of the ring era! LOL
there is even a blog devoted to their love , a bit like this one.



"Kathryn Kaycoff-Manos, president co-director of Agency For Surrogacy Solutions, Inc. in Los Angeles, says that pretty much never happens with her. Gay couples have increasingly turned to surrogates for starting their own families, and maybe there are a few who aren't quite all the way out.

But in Hollywood, not so much. Casablanca says that isn't surprising.

"Most are much more interested in covering up their homosexuality, not procreating," Ted tells me in a rare cameo appearance in this column. "Most gay couples don't make it long enough to even want to do this. That's why what Neil Patrick Harris is doing is a watershed moment"


this article was very interesting , just surprise nobody commented it!

Question said...

"Until we have kids ourselves, there's no way to fully understand the protective nature and the extent of a parent's love. A parent will do anything for their child."


really ? even ignoring you have kid?


Jake talks about fatherhood in a german mag:

'It's a huge responsibility because you have to be so selfless. But I'm really looking forward to becoming a father one day."

loose lips said...

LOL what's he supposed to say in an interview? "I have a secret child with my lover and we're keeping it private" ??!!

wake up said...

"LOL what's he supposed to say in an interview?"

hum hum !!

He talks about Ramona, still in the same mag : "Three years ago, Maggie's daughter Ramona was born. Since then, I've been an uncle and I love that girl above everything."

prairiegirl said...

^^Well, I'm not exactly sure about the exact translation on that one. Of course since Ramona was born, he's been an uncle. When she was born, Jake wasn't an uncle for one year, then he took a sabbatical for three months. Then, Oh hey, I think I'll be an uncle again. Then he's an uncle again. That's not something he could have been before her birth. When she was born, he became an uncle because that's what you call it! When one's sister or brother has a child, that person automatically becomes an uncle or an aunt, whether one wants to or not, lol.

lol. It's because of that phrase that I'm just kind of wondering about that entire translation.


I don't think some people are getting the point here. One quote by Jake about him "looking forward to being a father someday" or "looking for the right woman" in a magazine or sitting on a couch with a TV journalist is not phasing me the way some people want it to phase me, okay? I'm not going to run out of the room crying. I'm not going to wring my hands with the dishtowel, moaning "woe is me; what a world, what a world." And I'm not going to drink glasses of warm milk to settle the stomach.

Nope, sorry. You're going to have to come up with something a lot more serious than that. That's nothing. You know why?

prairiegirl said...

Because I used to live in that very same kind of snowglobe where I believed everything People magazine put out in print. I believed if a celebrity or athlete said something, then it had to be true.

Then I had that bucket of cold water thrown on me along with a slap of 'Snap out of it'. I'm sorry but that's just not the way it always is.

All one has to do is watch that HBO documentary "Outrage" and you will see at least two former federal govt employees admit that they lied about their homosexuality in order to preserve their careers, one of which is a very emotional & touching interview with former NJ governor, James McGreevey.

And the infuriating part about this is that I believe more people would come out and not be afraid to live their lives as they have a right to if it were not for the repressed, needlessly frightened & uninformed, bullying people in the upper ranks of Hollywood and our government.

Some people don't come out because it has been proven that they don't usually get to climb that professional ladder. They don't get that promotion. They don't get that Oscar. They don't get those plum roles. They won't get accepted in the locker room.

And that's why some lie when under earlier circumstances, they never would have. They may not have grown up doing that kind of thing. But they're only human.

It's only human nature sometimes to conform. To give in. To just accept things as they are. To let others talk you into just going with the flow. Don't rock the boat. This is the way it's always been and it's never going to change. And unfortunately, sometimes it's "You better or else."

How can anyone ever fault someone else for being put into a position of Fight or Flight and making a decision that only they themselves can deal with or emotionally handle?

Dear Ted:
It's getting harder and harder to take anything you say on your B.V.s seriously, since you contradict yourself so many times—it's like you can't even keep track of the stuff you make up. Crotch Uh-Lastic, for that matter. In his second B.V. you said Crotch was doing just like Toothy and selling his fauxmance to the media. Now, you say Crotch doesn't play the beard game. So, which one is it? Maybe you're saying that he used to have a beard but decided not to do that anymore? So can we assume Crotch doesn't have a (fake or not) GF right now? I hope you can explain that. Otherwise, I'll just take that you are full of BS, after all, and I've been naive all this time.
—Losing Faith

Dear Jump The Gun:
Calm down, babe. Don't you know everything is more complicated when it comes to these homo-lovin' hunks (especially Crotchy for that matter). See, if you're getting technical, then Crotch does indeed play the bearding game, but not like Toothy—at least not anymore. Gone are the days of CUL pimping out his pretty other half. Instead, he's more than happy for everyone to think he is completely single, which a lot of people actually do. I don't consider that "playing the beard game." At least, not well.

Dear Ted:
I know Toothy Tile won't come out any time soon but I just want him and Grey Goose to come out and live their actual life. I was wondering who do you think has the possibility of coming out sooner: Toothy Tile or Grey Goose?
—Sandy

Dear Come Out Come Out:
You're telling me, Sandy. Believe it or not I've grown quite attached to Toothy over the years and would love it if he would come out and live his life the way that I know he's dying to. As for who'd come out first, it actually would be T2 these days. How about that?

Bitch Back

prairiegirl said...

But here's the good news. Times are changing. And it's people like the trolls on here who have been revealing their fears, just like the HW and government types do, through their ridicule, their personal insults and agenda to scare off and intimidate regulars from sites such as OMG because they see it. And it frightens them.

The good news is that we have been witnessing a movement that's really picked up steam within, I don't know, I would say within just the past 5 years? Huge strides have been made just within the last five years. And brick by brick, the walls are tumbling.

Not everyone is a born leader. But we all can do just a little something in our own way that shows the world these times are changing and they're not going back. Thank heavens our little ones are being born into a world where sexual orientation discrimination in the U.S. is in the midst of a drop-kick movement. But it's a collective movement - it has to be.

And that's why it shouldn't need to fall on Jake & Austin's shoulders to pave the way. We rejoice in what NPH and his partner are doing. We admire the big steps that Adam Lambert, Melissa Etheridge, Chely Wright, JerseyTom, Destiny & Wicked take by rightfully being able to openly live their lives as they were born.

Jake's not out but he starred in Brokeback Mountain, a movie that was the pivotal Jack of Hearts card that sent my house of cards toppling over. That movie did it. Brokeback Mountain wasn't the only thing that changed me but it was the crown jewel. What that movie did was change more people's lives in ways that some public coming outs have yet to impact in numbers.

prairiegirl said...

So, you know what? To those who just keep coming here with the same drivel, the same insults, the same ol' "Didya see this? Huh, huh? Didya see this?! What about this, huh? Did ya see this?!! Huh? Huh? Well, whadya say to this?!! Huh? What about, what about, what about...Huh?!!! pant, pant, pant!!Huh? Huh? See? See? I told ya! I told ya!"

Man. lol. Just stop it.
All of ya's. lol, dina, kel, just sayin', ecf, so very bitter. Or better yet, let me put it this way.


Some of us are just done with ya. I, myself, am done repeating. Done explaining. It's a waste of my energy and my time.

So you are welcome to keep "Huh? Huh? What about, what about this? Huh? What about this quote? What did ya think about that, huh? Huh?"

But you're not getting anymore responses. Because I don't need to explain anymore. I know what I believe and where I stand and I am firmly entrenched. You guys are the ones who are bothered. Who question. Who stew. Who are worried and scared. That's why you come here.

Just tellin' ya.

That's it.

prairiegirl said...

Let me clarify. You're not getting anymore responses from me.

prairiegirl said...

Hey, you know what? I just read this bit about Austin taking piano lessons. What?! That is awesome.

I wonder how much he knows?

I sure wish I had kept my childhood lessons up. I didn't do too bad at it. But I preferred to be outside riding my cool bike with the cards in the spokes, black banana seat and high handle bars than stick with my lessons. So mom said she wasn't paying for those lessons anymore.

Boy, that was a great bike.

But I sure wish I could play that piano. Do you know how handy that can come in?

12 years of piano lessons and couldn't tell you the last time I sat down and played. How sad is that?

prairiegirl said...

12 years? Wow. I don't know how long we took lessons. We took them from an elderly lady who lived fairly close and we were able to ride our bikes over there. But I bet we hardly took them but for a couple of years?

That's a weird coincidence about that Born to Run. Kind of....chilling in a way. That's one of those uneasy lol's. lol.

Hey, something's kind of intriguing me. Catching my eye.

We've seen that picture on here several times, the one of him with perhaps a friend from school or something? Austin's got the warrior facepaint and animal skins? The funny little ponytail that's pretty cute.

In those photos from I think it's Bonnaroo-hoo-hoo, Austin has some similar facepainting going on.

And then look at his twitter page slogan/motto thing-y. Something about taking many scalps in his day and wanting to be called a warrior.

There's something going on with all of that but I'm not sure what, lol. Maybe he likes the Old West?

Methodical Muser said...

I find it amusing that those who are convinced that Jake is gay ignore his never-ending hetero-centered comments about finding the right woman. How they confortably assume a dismissive attitude toward his torturous bearding couplings, the strategically planted “girlfriend” stories in the media like “Isabel who?,” his dancing with multiple Russian chicks video, or his pre-summer “Bottoms Out” courtside booty call. Funny how this so-called “evidence” of Jake is straight, never seems to dissuade JiG believers from their convictions. In fact, they will continue to insist that, of course, Jake lies about his sexual orientation. He’s in the closet. What do you want him to do? Come out and say I’m gay?”

Yet, if Jake uses the subjective case when talking about fatherhood, “I would like to be a father someday,” those same folks will salivate in what they perceive as validation of their conviction and say, “See, he says he still doesn’t have any children so there is no baby.” Or, if he walks to a birthday party, holding Ramona in his arms, this proves he does not have kids of his own. Or, because we don’t see him with his children, there can’t be any little tykes around. In other words, JiG folk will readily admit that Jake lies about his sexuality, but he would never lie about being a daddy.

Contrary to the popular belief among OMG trolls and nonbelievers, many Jaustin community members have come to their conclusions over many months and years, based on a variety of clues, facts, inconsistencies, photo/video evidence, chronologies, experience, and common sense. I think it’s striking that these same naysayers will insist that we continue to provide evidence and justify our belief systems day after day, after day, after day. Truly tiresome.

We’ll if you are really interested in understanding the basis of our perspective then do your own homework. Go back and read the blog entries and topics of discussion for the past three years. All the answers are right there. Then ask yourself, if you still think we are a bunch of loonies, “Why are you still here?” Oh, I know, your new tagline is because you love good fanfic. Yeah, that’s really funny, in a juvenile sort of way, but you still haven’t disproved a thing. Because you can’t.

9 Signs Your Husband Is Gay

Methodical Muser said...

Not at all. Just pointing out that many JiG believers will ridicule those who do think there is a BT, just because Jake makes a comment like, "I would like to be a father someday." Yet, when he says, "The most important thing is to find the right woman," they dismiss it as him just playing the Hollywood closet game.

Methodical Muser said...

By the way, there is no club. Just a community of Jake and Austin fans. That's all.

blue eyes said...

regarding your answer PG I thing you misinterpreted what meant "wake up" above!

I don't know about BT existence but despite you're right saying stars tell lies on mag, some words are disturbing: when jake says he loves ramona above anything else, you can wonder about a guy who is supposed to have kid on his own. He can lie yes but this phrase is just too much IMO.

blue eyes said...

Yes I understand methodical Muser. those who ridiculise BT believers are playing stupid anyway.

I think it's great various communities can exist.

The BT thing is just hard to believe for me and without offensing you all the possible proove you bring don't change thing, I will be a believer when I see jake with his kid for real.

Methodical Muser said...

No offense taken.

:-) said...

Nice to see M&M has become the official spokesperson for OMG. Most excellent.

prairiegirl said...

No, I didn't misinterpret or misunderstand. I saw wake up. I don't need to wake up. My eyes are wide open.

I'm sorry we don't seem to have talked before. You may feel you know me but we are not on near familiar enough terms for the use of nicknames.

M&M just relayed how a few of us have come to our beliefs. I'm not repeating it again.

I don't ask for anyone else to believe. I dissect what I know and discuss with others, get their input & feedback, then draw my own conclusion.

But this day is the day of saying no mas. If someone wants to cling to the notion that Jake has been on the make for the past how many years looking for that right woman to bear his offspring, then by all means, pull up the captain's chair, set it up streetside with a bottle of SOBE water and just watch the parade. Knock yourself out.

As you can see by this past summer, he was seen holding non-stop tryouts. Still is. For those who insist Jake and Austin are toast, pull up another captain's chair and watch Jake as he holds tryouts non-stop with the testosterone set.

Too many tall people blocking the view? Darnit. Well, if we can't see it, then it cannot be happening. Just like BT. Can't see BT, BT must not exist. Cannot exist because I don't see him/her.

Don't see Jake courting prospects? On either front? Must not be happening. Gee. Jake must sit at home every night. Reading. Playing solitaire. He goes to brunch with business handlers. Hangs with his sis, bro in law, niece. Atticus. Dad. Mom. Chris. Busy Phillips, who's married and has a little one, oh around the same age as BT. But that's just a coincidence, right? So when he's not with those people, he must sit at home all day. All night. Alone. All summer long.

Guy that looks like him? 29 years old? Single? But in the hunt for a wife and family. Hmmm. Well, maybe next summer. This summer just wasn't a good time.
Atmospheric conditions just not quite right.

No one has to believe. But I don't go elsewhere and push onto anyone else what I believe and tell them that they're looney for not believing in BT. So please don't come over here where I'm minding my own business, call me by my nickname when we've never even talked before and tell me to wake up.

Other than that, welcome and express all you want. I recognize that you could be new and English is not your first language. I respect that and welcome you as a fellow brother/sister. But I have had it with this scoffing.

Until we have kids ourselves, there's no way to fully understand the protective nature and the extent of a parent's love. A parent will do anything for their child.

Very true that someone who is not a parent doesn't truly understand a parent's love for a child. A loving parent would, of course, protect their child, and I admire celebrities who keep their children out of the spotlight as much as possible. I think that's responsible. But that is FAR different than keeping a child completely hidden, and subjecting them to all kinds of subterfuge. And that is FAR FAR different than actually denying that your own child even exists in the world. And AS A PARENT, I can tell you that it is beyond my comprehension that a rational and loving adult would do such a horrible thing - and I don't think Jake is someone who would do such a horrible thing - that's only one on a long list of reasons why I don't believe in the existence of BT. Maybe that's something else the non-parents here don't fully understand. Lying about your sexuality is one thing, but I wonder exactly how the BT believers think Jake could extricate himself from such a horrible lie about a child.

That's an easy one. Jake's in the closet. I'm sure it makes sense to lie about being gay and then come out with a child...no mother, no woman in sight. Yep, that's a good way to stay in the closet. So the same reasons he would give for telling non-truths about his sexuality to the public, would be the same reasons he would use to justify why he is hiding his child that he had with another man. Admiting he has a family life with Austin would probably blow his cover, don't you think?

the real m said...

Well said, M&M and PG. I've followed Jake for what 5 yrs now and during a time when he was a lot more unguarded. I know what I saw and still see. And repetitive restatements of lame and boring arguments will not undo that.

I never get tired of seeing those pictures of Austin as a younger man. Not surprised that he fit in easily with all types based on the comments I've seen from people who've worked with him. That's a trait I am very jealous of.

prairiegirl said...

Unless you're a gay parent, in particular one of those 1000 male/male gay parents in the United States, and an A-list actor in Hollywood on top of that, you cannot profess to know what you would do or not do.

I have held both my niece and nephew minutes after they were born. I do know that overwhelming feeling of love. I would do just about anything for either one of them. So I'm not speaking off the top of my head.

I don't even really think that's the point.

No, my feeling is that it's not so much the denial of a child. Because we all read every day on the internet or hear on the news, 1000's of stories of parents who abandon their children. Mentally & physically abuse their children. Murder their children. Ignore their children. Give up their children. Taunt their children. Don't care about their children.

Jake and Austin's kids should be about 2 1/2 and 1 1/2(?) right now. It's not anyone can say they will be hidden forever. Even for another 12 months. No one knows.

No, I think the real underlying issue is either #1, This would mean Jake is a father & a husband and #2, it would mean he's off the market. And for some, I think # 3 , it would confirm Jake is gay.

Those are the real issues for most of the outrage.

What are you talking about? I don't expect Jake to lie about being gay and then "come out" with a child. That's exactly the point. You don't think Jake is so stupid he never thought of that? You've just reinforced my reasoning that there is no child.

?? said...

Who's babysitting right now? While Jake is off in Colorado?

prairiegirl said...

And what I mean by those social issues listed in my last statement is those mistreatments of children are far worse than what is going on right now for a 1 1/2 yr and 2 1/2 yr old. But with all the outrage shown every time a BT discussion comes up, you would think their lifestyle would be worthy of a prison sentence.

Jake & Austin have a couple of years probably before they're going to have to start thinking about pre-school, regular school and everything else that goes with how they're going to live as a family. And since we haven't even seen what their next move is in the next 24 hrs, let alone the next 12 months, it's impossible to speak as if what is going on right now is how it's going to be permanently.

prairiegirl said...

Reinforced non-belief? That's awesome. Jake's in Colorado? That's awesome.

See? Here we go. I'm done. Talk to the hand.

I've got a chapter 5 to get to my beta.

Ah, moving the goalposts again. YOU were the one who brought up the issue of not knowing what it's like unless you're a parent: Until we have kids ourselves, there's no way to fully understand the protective nature and the extent of a parent's love . But now you're backtracking and trying to say that being an aunt is the same and that it's not the point anyway. If it's not the point then why did YOU bring it up in the first place? Sorry, I'm an aunt, as well as a mother and it's NOT the same. I don't even understand what the rest of your 2:42PM post means. For some reason you cling to the belief that anyone who doesn't believe in BT is "scared" of Jake being gay or of him being "off the market." Well, I do believe Jake is gay and I don't care whether he's on or off the market. That has nothing to do with believing in BT.

As far I am concerned the real issue for me is to figure out jake and austin aren't the people I thought they are. I would be happy for them and their family if they were low key but not like that.
the situation is unhealthy enough so including a child in this mess is unthinkable right now

Jersey Tom said...

My neice could have helded me in her arms after I was born since she is 1 1/2 yeras older than me:-)

prairiegirl said...

I don't care if you're a mother, an aunt, a grandmother, a dog breeder, a daycare operator and a zoo keeper all rolled into one.

Twist away, hon. I don't owe you anything further and it doesn't matter to me what you believe about Jake. Do you not get it?

I. Don't. Care. Nothing you say is going to silence my voice.


blue eye, that's fine. Fine. **sigh**.

whatever, people.

Hey, Austin said he was in a gym several hours ago.

@adamlevine your music is playin in my gym. Got me all pumped up. (Or romanced up) Love you tender about 3 hours ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®

prairiegirl said...

lol. Wow, Tom. That's kind of unusual, isn't it?

In some way you're right, the mistreatments of children are more serious.
And yet hidding a child because you live in couple with a same sex patner and you fear for your career and your reputation is seriously questionable. They may not deserve prison sentence but I would thing something goes wrong in their heads.

It's not like they had kid "naturally" by accident. When you choose to have a child by surrogate I think it's a mature decision you planed long time ago not abruptly. It's mean you arrive at a moment in you like you feel good with who you are, you're in peace with you.I have a couple of friends who adopted 2 years ago now and I speak from the experience I have with them, their feeling.... I suppose the same for gay couple. NHP and Ricky Martin are radiant , they are finally proud of them and their child can be proud of their parent.

Can I say the same for jake and Austin? saddly not.
Those two are too insecure, how raising a child like that. Child feel everything and can suffer from this situation.

blue eye said...

sorry I don't want to annoy people here. I am just too emotional about kid.

Ok other than that the site is cool and well done.

daddy jake said...

Well, I do believe Jake is gay and I don't care whether he's on or off the market. That has nothing to do with believing in BT.

Actually, your the one moving the goalposts, "not to be admired." "Pretty simple" did answer your question. If you can believe Jake can lie about being gay, then being deceptive about having a child who was sired in that gay relationship goes hand in hand. Using words like "horrible," doesn't change that fact. I'm sure Jake could care less whether you admire him or not.

Unlike most closeted actors in Hollywood, Jake may very well have wanted to share his private life with a man. He also may have wanted to have a family, not just a partner in life. You may think he's horrible, digusting, maybe even delusional for wanting to live this kind of life. But, remember those would be your value judgments. Yes, I would like Jake to come out. Yes, I would have preferred he didn't feel like he had to hide his family, but don't try to ridicule others into thinking that it's impossible for Jake to be a father. Given how much he's wanted to have kids since he was in his early 20s, I can definitely see him falling in love then wanting to have a family just like everybody else. However, being a closeted movie star, naturally meant that any child would have to be closeted too.

the real question: what is the underlying issue if BT doesn't exist?

Truth Hurts said...

Well we know that Ted started the TT rumours, so, no baby tile = no toothy, which most people (even ONTD) are realising now.

I suppose blogs like this and WFT2 just live for fantasies.

BTW MM there is no proof, no videos, and just pics of Jake hanging with Austin as friends, it's sad that actors are not allowed male friends, OMG I just saw so and so with his male friend HE MUST BE GAY GAY GAY.

broken record said...

No, that is not the real question, no matter how bad you want it to be.
The real question is why you're berating people on a blog whose premise clearly is that J&A are a couple with kids.

Jersey Tom said...

Do male friends spend New Years Eve together at a lodge with one of the friends parents. In the same room. Nah don't think so. Yes that was Austin at the lodge.

Do male friends go to the flea markets with one of the friends parents on the weekend. Nah don't so. Yes that was ZAustin at the flea market.

Do you let a male friend put his legs over your shoulders with high heels on and then take a photo. Nah don't think so. Those are Jake's legs.

LOL said...

LOL, poor Tom. Everything you just stated as "fact" is purely speculation. Not a single ounce of proof for any of that.

Well, at least you didn't call me _ _ Stirrer this time.

I know who you are. You just can't lay off of me, can you? I had to think for awhile but when I look at that "YOU" and the "Aw, moving the goalposts again" as someone who obssesses and is constantly monitoring everything I say.

Well, I can do the same thing; in fact, I just did. And I figured out who this is.

And you know what? Until you can identify yourself and talk to me face to face with the name I recognize (and I'm not talking about cute, OMG, WoW, too cute, Heavenly Choir, + 1000 others), we're going to call this a draw right here and right now.

I'm not talking to you any longer and I don't want you talking to me or responding to any of my comments any longer. You keep it up and I'll consider it as good as badgering & stalking.

This is stinkin' unbelievable.

I apologize to everyone for having to witness my rude behavior but I have had it with this person and I'm past the point of caring about airing out of dirty laundry. This is really upsetting me now.

Stubborn TB said...

I thought it was Chris at the Lodge, thought he was working at the restaurant there when it happened.

Of course you would think that since you're the one who started that whole rumor, dear Jack. I believe you were working there at the same time, wasn't that it?
You remembered this 2 years after the fact too, if I might add.

Your willingness to twist others words is consistently laughable and amazingly predictable. Keep spinning and distorting and just plain making up sh*t...which is really what you do best. Funny how what you accuse others of, is what you are expert at doing. I believe that's called ironic.

It's obvious you want people to believe that whatever has not yet been irrefutably proven to be true, must therefore be undeniably false. Sorry, but that's the oldest trick in the book. Like I've said before, I could care less if anyone else supported my point of view. However, the fact that you consistently misrepresent, misquote and ridicule others with ad hominem arguments, shows a manic desperation that is truly palpable.
