He did say that yes, of course it has been hard for Lance keeping it quiet and that it’s hard touring and being in the spotlight in front of millions of teen girls and stuff. Chris said he has Lance’s back and that he is there for him. He said he and Lance talked about him coming out about a month or so ago. (From the JJB)

Friends of Bass say he’s sick of Lehmkuhl’s controlling ways. “Reichen forced Lance to come out just at the same time he has a book coming out ['Here's What We'll Say'] so he could ride the publicity wave,” said our spy. “He is a big gay activist and very controlling. He wants Lance to give up his straight friends and do whatever he tells him to.” Lehmkuhl has taken every opportunity to go on-air. He told “The Insider,” “I’m happy it’s shocking people . . . I couldn’t be more proud of Lance. It’s definitely a sense of relief. There are a lot more smiles. We are so happy about it.” A rep for Bass skirted the issue and said: “Lance couldn’t be happier with the overwhelming reaction he’s getting from all over the world.”
