Promoting the 9th season of hit reality series, RuPaul’s Drag Race, RuPaul Charles appeared today on talk show Hollywood Today Live. And during the interview, Ru surprised with news about his longtime partner, Georges Lebar.
Talking about their 23 year relationship, which stretches back to 1994, Ru was asked if they would ever get married, and that’s when he surprised everyone.
“You know what?” he said. “I don’t think I’ve said this on television before. We are married.”
“I met him on the dance floor at Limelight in 1994 on his birthday,” he explained. “So we got married on his birthday on the anniversary of when we met… so this year in January.”
Internet chatter about the two began in the summer when the two were photographed together at a technology seminar at Fox Studios in Los Angeles and out to dinner with friends a few days later.
Hedison, who dated Ellen DeGeneres for about three years before things ended in 2004, has had her photography shown in New York and Los Angeles. She also has several acting credits, including playing Dylan Moreland on Showtime’s hit lesbian drama series, The L Word, for three seasons.
In accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes last year, Foster thanked her ex Cydney Bernard, spoke of her need for privacy and also declared that she did her “coming out a thousands years ago, in the Stone Age.”
Tomlin, the 74-year-old comic genius best known for her diverse roles on television, film and stage tied the knot New Year’s Eve with longtime love and accomplished writer, Jane Wagner after 42 years together.
It appears the news first broke as a sidenote in a piece about Bob Fosse written for ChicagoTribune.com by friend of the couple, Liz Smith:
“It was an eventful New Year’s Eve … my longtime friends, Lily Tomlin and her love, the writer Jane Wagner, got married on the eve of 2014. … My wish is that their happiness will be as great as their combined talents.”
The two met in March of 1971 working on a comedy album. Since that time, they’ve worked on many projects including the Tony Award and Drama Desk Award-winning “The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe.”
I’ve met Lily in person and, of course, enjoyed her genius many times on stage and on the big & large screens. A great, great talent that like a fine wine grows deeper and richer (if that’s possible) with age.

Family Ties actress Meredith Baxter married her longtime partner Nancy Locke in a ceremony over the weekend in L.A., People magazine reports:
Close friends and family – including Baxter’s five children –, looked
on as the couple exchanged handwritten vows. Music played a central
theme in the celebration. A friend sang and played guitar during the
ceremony and at the reception, Locke’s band took the stage.
Olympic gold medalist diver Greg Louganis, 53, married paralegal Johnny Chaillot, 52, Saturday evening at Geoffrey’s in Malibu.
According to People, the two were married in Malbu last night.
“It was amazing because I have so many people from all facets of my life here tonight and they are all here and celebrating it is all wonderful,” Louganis told People immediately following the sunset ceremony. “I already feel different. The ceremony was so reflective and representative of who we are.”
The couple apparently met on Match.com last year, and became engaged a year later.
