    If she does I will be surprised. Something about her comes across as very private.

    Whoa, I thought she was an already out and proud lezzie.

    I think her role in Set It Off just gave me that impression.

    She is kinda like a black Jodie Foster...taking on roles of women powerful enough on their own not to need a man. Interestingly, in the film version of Chicago, I felt like the lesbian characteristics of Mama were subdued when compared to the stage revival. Hmmm.....

    If all she can afford is a 1.4 million place in the Hollywood Hills, she's nowhere near coming out yet. She should have married up. Poor baby.

    It doesn't make any difference, she's a bankable celebrity. I like her. Who cares?

    I too would be surprised if she came out.

    t seems that celebrites get to a certain point and then the option of coming out slides away - Jodie Foster, Kevin Spacey, Anderson Cooper for example are all considered to be in the "glass closet". Perhaps if you obtain a certain level of fame, agents and PR folk discourage coming out as it may harm your bankability. Sad, but possibly true?

    A friend of mine recently e-mailed me regarding Chely Wright, the country music lady who came out "why is it always the people on the decline or those you don't really know that come out, it's never the big deals". I recall Rupert Everett saying that coming out hurt his career, but then again people like Niel Patrick Harris or Ellen can hardly claim it's held them back.

    She has already expressed herself on that subject long ago but she choses to be private about her personal life.

    What kind of house can you get Hollywood Hills for $1.4 mil? It boggles my mind that I live in a house more expensive than a popular celebrity.

    What is wrong with having a 1.4 million dollar home?
    :confused: The home looks really nice to me.

    If that's her girlfriend in the photo, QL has good taste. QL herself is appealing as well.

    There is nothing wrong with having a 1.4 million dollar home. It's just that I live in a rural area and my home is worth a lot more than that.

    I guess I envision all celebrities living in ultra expensive homes; which is probably not true.

    Regardless is she/they are happy with the place, more power to them.

    Crap, someone toss me a 1.4 million dollar home. I'll throw in a BJ to sweeten the deal.

    Some of the comments made by the readers on that site are bitter and harsh.

    One person called her a "fat ugly closet lesbian".

    It is a shame that people need to place value and worth on such idiotic things as weight, personal appearance and sexual orientation.

    1.4 million is nothing to sneeze at and is an investment for both of them.

    Do we know if this is her only home? I don't know the whole story, but what if QL already has one or more homes, but this is to be "their" home that they bought together? In any case, I feel like we're making a big deal about someone else's personal business. Then again, I guess that's the news media's bread and butter.

    :)

    Well, maybe celebs are buying homes and businesses instead of one big real property such as a multi-million dollar estate.

    I think that Queen Latifah owns a recording studio, entertainment/ media production company, restaurants, and a deli. She probably does own some other real property as well other than the home she bought with her trainer. Who knows?!

    You make a good point. She probably does own other properties and businesses.

    I would fuck the living daylights out of Latifah and Foster, but then again... I've always had a thing for lesbians.
