The How I Met Your Mother Star (Formerly Known as Doogie Howser, M.D.) Comes Out

Sep 23, 2008 | Posted by: Thomas Jackson | Full story: gaynewsblog.net

As a star of CBS's sitcom How I Met Your Mother, Neil Patrick Harris has won raves as cheerfully relentless womanizer and pickup artist Barney Stinson. For all his onscreen braggadocio, though, Harris, 33, had always been discreet when discussing his own love life in interviews. Until now. Accused by Internet bloggers of denying that he's gay, the former child star of Doogie Howser, M.D. responded Nov. 3 in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE: "The public eye has always been kind to me, and until recently I have been able to live a pretty normal life. Now it seems there is speculation and interest in my private life and relationships. So, rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love."

Yeah, we got the similarly shocking non-news about Dusty Springfield again a few weeks ago. That's the internet for you, around and around we go.
