What’s really funny is that Brent isn’t the only one who assumed Brent was gay. Everybody just figured he was. He certainly had the shopping gene. lol. No cheap rainbows for him! Even at 14 and 15 he had sophisticated (read: expensive) taste. This has provided many amusing moments over the years as people on the street clock him as gay — all to the never ending bemusement of his girlfriends, of whom there have been many. He’s been girl crazy since that day in the kitchen when he bemoaned the state of his straightness. He jokes sometimes that he’s a gay man born with the wrong attractions.
