Coral Smith, best known as a cast member on The Real World: Back to New York, is "venturing toward her lesbian qualities." Or at least that’s what told Outlook Magazine, in an interview that makes the mind boggle — and not just because (as she herself notes) Coral has “very big boobs.”
Gosh. What a lucky gal. But back to the "lesbian qualities" thing. “Lesbian tendencies” I’ve heard, but “qualities” is a new one to me. What are those, exactly? Does she mean her ring finger is longer than her index finger? Or perhaps she has a fondness for cats. Evidence definitely points to her not having much of a sense of humor.
But we can all learn a lot from Coral about homophobia, which she attributes to the aging population:
This is exactly what I was telling the cabana girl in Rio last weekend! Interestingly, Coral calls herself "old" at 28. But she doesn’t like other labels:
I guess for Coral, being "regular" means not doing anything crazy like questioning gender roles, speaking out against oppression or, uh, voting. She may not care whether the 2008 election yields a woman, a black man, a Mormon or a WASP as president, but she sure is supportive of her new community (because gay events "show we’re capable and can run s—"). And she hopes to get some support in exchange, because she’s a little nervous about coming out.
Coral, you’re not much for flowery language, but we’re still happy you decided to come out publicly. We’re all about visibility, even for has-been reality stars like you. Oops! That was mean. But, well, snarkiness is a lesbian quality, so I’m sure you understand.
