People: Reichen Lehmkuhl target of threats

Actor and model Reichen Lehmkuhl says he and boyfriend Lance Bass "have to be very protective" because of threats sparked by his new memoir about the problems of being gay while serving in the military.

"I am not going to hide," the 32-year-old former Air Force captain and winner of season four of CBS's Amazing Race told TV's Inside Edition in an interview that aired Wednesday. "There are threats that come in from people who do not want me to be so public and expose what is going on in the military."

Puh-leeze. Reichen saying, "I'm not going to hide," is like him saying "I'm not going to breathe." His entire purpose for living is attention. He makes the most outrageous drag queen look shy. He'd rather die than give up red carpets and photo ops. If "everything is being covered so we feel safe," then why did he run to the media with this non-story at all (as if HE discovered DADT and is the first to talk about it)? The gay community used to call people like him "fame whores"--now they're "heroes" and the Human Rights Champagne fund gives them awards. We've really made progress--we have our own male version of Paris Hilton.

Sadder still that you're giving more attention to this poser activist when you have a real activist busting his buns for the community in your own backyard--his former partner Chip Arndt.
