My wife confirms that the guy was her makeup guy.
I wouldnt have made a point about his sexual orientation except that during the episode (which my wife had on while I was sitting in the kitchen) it was brought up about 32, 427 times. Clearly it was an important factor, so I didnt see any reason to exclude it and be derided for leaving out such a crucial detail. I mentioned it in context of him as a specific individual, and not in any greater context of all hairdressers being gay or all gay people being hairdressers.
Not that there would be anything wrong with that.
Lastly, see my sig for any further information.
