Bobby Deen's Perfect Date

Bobby Deen gets a lot of people talking. My post on him back in September '06 currently has 135 comments. Everyone just seems a bit... confused by him.


Bobby Deen recently told Extra that his idea of a perfect date would be:


"We'd have dinner, dessert, a glass of wine and she'd be gone... it'd be perfect."


Bobby seemed really hesitant throughout the entire segment ("I love beautiful brunettes... I'm just kidding!") . What's the matter, Bobby D.?



After Katie Lee Joel mentioned she'd like to marry Bobby just to have Paula as her mother-in-law, Bobby quipped "See, that's what I'm afraid of!"

I can see how Bobby would be hesitant to get involved with anyone, having such a successful parent. I'm just not sure why he'd subject himself to these kinds of weird TV segments.

I agree that he looked TOTALLY uncomfortable right from the get-go. Makes you wonder if it was really his decision to let this segment happen or if someone else was pushing it. If you get my drift.

She'd be gone??? I don't get it. I need to see this interview myself.

Well, I certainly wouldn't want to have to come out to Paula Deen. Goodbye inheritance.

I really don't see Paula being the type of person who really cares if BD is straight or gay.

I have to agree w/ bdl1. For all that's said about her, Paula doesn't strike me as the type you should fear coming out to. There are those, but I don't think she is, really.

Oh c'mon out, Bobby.

I don't think the problem is Bobby coming out to Paula. Of course, none of us know her true feelings, but she doesn't present herself as someone who would have much of a problem with Bobby being gay.

Now, Food Network and Paula's fans? That could be the reason behind the Iron Closet. The "home cook" and "Middle America" aren't necessarily gay friendly. There's probably some hush hush going on in the name of business and ratings.

anon: yeah, not sure. seems fishy.

roberto: verdad.

anon: clicky on the linky.

anon: yeah, perhaps.

bd lover #1: yeah, i don't think she would...perhaps others, though.

john: we'll see. doubtful, though.

mussakka: yep. there's hush hush goin on for lotsa stars, i'm sure.

I do not think that Bobby Deen is gay. He acts like alot of southern men that I know. He is respectful of his mama, and polite- that does not make him gay. I remember many people thought Jamie Deen might be gay before he got married. But I will admit, Bobby does look pretty uncomfortable in this video.

Well of COURSE being respectful of your mama doesn't mean you're gay! I've known a lot of men - both Southern and not - that were respectful to their mothers that weren't gay, and a lot of others that were. I've also known a few real dicks (no pun intended) - again, from all over the country - that were on all sides of the rainbow. Of course, the presumption of possible gay-itude comes not from his politeness but from his discomfort, his age and (perhaps) more than a little wishful thinking on the part of a handful of gay fans. Doesn't mean he's gay, and it doesn't mean he's straight.

I think he is gay.....he's masculine, but his mannerisms make me wonder....nothing against him....gay here myself....I hope he is :)

I wish Jamie were gay LOL

What I found so strange about the interview was how strongly he was flirting with her, knowing full well that she is married! This is something that I have seen before with him, he knows they are taken and won't respond to his moves. If he is gay, would it not be better to just come out and be yourself?

He did seem pretty happy with her!! Do you think she could be replacing Jamie on Road Tasted?

I don't care if BD is gay, I like to think Paula wouldn't care. Perhaps all the family know his true orientation. Curiosity does make me wonder, but really, it's not important.

I think whatever his orientation, he seems like the player type. Perhaps that what his "strange" comment alludes to...use 'em and lose 'em! I can totally see him being like that, sweet as sugar one second, "get outta my bed" the next.

But who knows? I guess it's not fair for me to make assumptions about him like that when I don't even know him. All I do know is I looove looing.

(PS...this is one Southern home cook, a mom of two small babies, anti-religion (atheist), anti-Neo Con, don't care if you're gay, straight, transgenedered, etc. So there is still hope for the sahm Bible Belt folk although I admit I'm outcast among many here and not winning any "converts" very quickly with reason, logic and open-minded thought LOL...the battle wages on!)

Bobby! Honey, you looked like you were trying to hard. Relax...let go of what your hiding! You know what they say, what's in the dark will come to light. What about not being gay and being African American but white. You like our caramels and chocolates. We know you do. It's time to come out! Or if you are gay. We're ok with that, too. Many good blessings! And please call Chaps Ralph Lauren (Magazine/Commercial Ad for polos since you wear them all the time) You would be a shooin.

According to Ladies Home Journal Bobby Deen is looking for the following:

"My nephew Jack gives me a new perspective on life," says Bobby. "I've never been married, but watching my brother and his wife and child -- well, now I want that, too, and soon."

So I think that all of you male & female need to get over yourselves and give Bobby Deen a break. I was really taken aback by some of these comments.

Yes, Bobby looks very uncomfortable in this interview! I believe there is a strong chance that he is gay. The reason I now believe this is watching the Deen Family Vacation on TV. When they went to the personal comments by Paula, behind her were three pictures. Two very clearly of Brooke and Jamie and the third picture of two people was blurred. You could tell it was Bobby, and the other person was a man. Why would they blur this, what is he hiding? Is he being forced to live a lie just to present a certain picture to the fans?

anon (4:54): wow... very interesting about the blurred picture. i caught a bit of that special, but didn't notice that. I'll have to record it the next time it's on and look for it.

I believe it's scheduled to come on again around the 6th of February. Check the foodnetwork web site

Deen Family Vacation will be on February 2nd at 6pm eastern time.

I, too, caught the blurring of the photo on the Deen Family Vacation show during the cutaways in the last 20 minutes or so. It never crossed my mind that it was deliberate, but it could have been. I couldn't make out enough to determine that it was Bobby. But maybe it WAS Bobby and his "best friend", Mike, who appeared in a sandwich episode of Paula's Party that I caught last year and who appears in several of the recent "Paula Cookin' At Sea" Cruise photos. If he is gay and they are hiding it, it begs the question "Why?". And, if he is having to hide it, I feel so bad for him that he cannot himself to EVERYONE (whether it be because of the fan factor or the less-than-progressive bible belt factor). As a female, who will never even meet him, I would still think he's HOT!

His "best friend" Michael, not only was with him on the cruise, he also walked the red carpet with him last year at the Food and Wine Festival in South Beach. Someone also told me he now works for Deen Brothers Enterprise. Seems like a very close "friend" to me!

Just because Michael (best friend)is clingy doesn't mean he is the "attached" friend. Probably, Bobby and him went to high school together. Cut the "pinky scratch" some slack!

Did you ppeople actually take a gander at Bobby's best friend? If he were gay I think he could do much better. I am just saying.

 
At 1/25/2008 10:16 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I've seen pictures of his "best friend" and he is overweight, but not bad looking. I would presume that he has a good personality and the two get along really well. If this is his partner, I wish him well, and glad that he found someone he can share his life with.

I just saw the repeat of the Deen Family Vacation and the blurred picture. I agree that it looks like Bobby and his friend Michael. My question is, if Michael is just a friend, then why are they blurring the picture?

Yeh - I saw it to. I admit it is a little strange...

He was being interviewed by his mother's friend, Katie Lee - it may have made him uncomfortable, she may have gone off script and put him on the spot . . . there are many reasons why he's uncomfortable. Personally, if he's inviting me to dinner, I'd be looking forward to dessert. Yum! Yum!

I think Bobby's gay, I met him face to face while he was at the Harrah's Casino in New Orleans a few months ago, told Pauls with him standing next to him that "You have a beautiful son", he thanked me and reached over and gave me a hug. What a hunk a man and beautiful up close and personal !

WHY DOES ANYONE CARE IF A MAN OR WOMAN IS GAY OR STR8? DOES ANYONE ASK "WHO IS STR8?" NO BUT ALL WONDER WHO IS GAY. WHY? JUST BECAUSE A MAN DOES NOT GET MARRIED, DOES NOT MEAN A THING. WHY DO ALL OF YOU CARE?

Well, this is interesting...I would not suspest that he's gay. I've noticed, though, watching Paula's shows, that Bobby has been featured alot with her. I thought maybe she was trying to get someone interested in him to marry him off (he's 38 and still single, OMG). I don't see Jaimie anymore on the show, since he's married with child. I didn't see the interview. Paula loves both her sons and would support everthing that they did in their lives. I feel Bobby is more of a "mama's boy" then Jamie, but that's just my opinion. Rock on Bobby!! Whoever you are :-)

Just because adorably hot Bobby Deen is from the country, a momma's boy and does not publicly display his affection, does not mean he is “Ennis Del Mar” from Brokeback Mountain. Give me a break people, my husband and I married when he was 39 years old, never dated anyone before me and lived a happy single bachelor life and had dinner with his mom every night....he is no more Gay than Bobby and all of you haters are just SPECIAL...like EAT the paste special, SO go back to “sniffing your glue” and eating the paste, because you are all out of your mind if you determine a man is gay because he does not screw every woman on the Mississippi River!
