The famed actor recently debuted a new HBO documentary titled Remembering the Artist Robert De Niro Sr. to honor his late father, an abstract expressionist painter who left De Niro's mother upon realizing he was gay.

Like most women, I have no shame in admitting that I find other females attractive. I have even admitted to being open to experimentation ("Of course I would sleep with Halle Berry! It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity"). For women, it's perfectly acceptable to be a little bi-curious (cue every male fantasy), and according to the latest research, it's the norm.
As far as Lady Gaga transformations go, her gender-bending "Jo Calderone" act on last night's MTV Video Music Awards was pretty brilliant. No more egg-shaped vessels or meat dresses—just a macho dude who hits on everything in sight. Including Britney Spears.

"I see an exciting adventure in your future, a new sexual experience that forever changes you," she said, tracing the sole of my foot with one soft fingertip. Her husband grinned at me from the bed. I sat half-naked in the overstuffed armchair and trembled with nerves. This is not how I'd imagined my first — or any — threesome. I'm not bisexual, and I can count the number of times I've been physically attracted to a woman on one hand, with two fingers left over. Yet here I was in a cute little southern California inn with a couple who have been married for 25 years, playing an adults-only computer game that would have us girls riding double before dinnertime.
Conservative dating site eHarmony will launch an offshoot dating service catered to gays called Compatible Partners, the company announced today. According to the settlement of a New Jersey discrimination lawsuit, the site must launch by March 31 of next year and be marketed in gay and lesbian media outlets.

He filed a formal discrimination complaint against the site in 2005; a similar case against the company is underway in California.
