This is another of the "Duh!" coming out stories. I'll admit that i actually thought she'd come out several years ago. I've always known she plays for the home team, and was pretty sure she'd made it official some while ago. But, then, who cares? This type of announcement is rapidly becoming one of no interest to the public.

Of course, if Tom or John finally come out of their doorless closets, there will be a few headlines, but few people will be surprised. we certainly won't be.

Does her on screen interest of old, Matt Dillon, have anything to add on this matter?

Kristy McNichol DID come out YEARS and YEARS ago. This is definitely not news.

The next thing you know they'll be saying that Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Jodie Foster and Ellen Degeneres have "just" come out! ;-)

Nice joke inserting Tome Cruise and Travolta on the list of those who have "come out."

At least I think that's a joke on your part.

She used to go to a women's bar on Santa Monica around Laurel.....this was a looooong time ago.

It was around the time I used to go to The Spike, and THAT was a long time ago.

So many YEARS ago, in fact, you'd have to be at least 40 to remember it.

Anyone younger is probably going, "Who the hell is Kristy McNichol?"

It's at least been an open secret for the past 25 years that she's a lesbian. No big surprise here.

The Spike! I haven't thought of them in YEARS! Oh, good times, good times! If I could hop into my time machine and go back 30 years...and be that age again...and know what I do now and have ONE more night at The Spike. Good times.
