PerezHilton.com recently reported that our favorite hot mama Queen Latifah recently took her longtime “friend” Jeanette Jenkins as her date to the New York City premiere of Hairspray.

And he says:

However, things did not go so smoothly for the undercover lover.

This interaction between Jeanette and a reporter was priceless.

Latifah’s longtime personal trainer Jeanette Jenkins was by the actress’ side – on hand for any last-minute workouts, we presume. Asked if she has a boyfriend, Jenkins stammered, “I’m in a relationship. I have been for a long time,” before beating a hasty retreat down the red carpet past “Hairspray” stars John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Walken and Nikki Blonsky.

Ha! Making the lesbians angry.

Be careful. They might beat you up!

I’m not really sure what the deal is with Latifah.  If people love her for her, meaning her acting and singing skills, is that really going to go away if she just came out?  It might win her even more fans if you ask me. 

However Latifah, we’ll wait for you to come around, I just hope we don’t have to wait much longer because if you ask me, it’s not really that much of a secret.

I mean did any of you really by that interview she did with Access Hollywood where she said she’s looking for a good brotha and could she get the hook up or the Essence Magazine interview where she talked about leading in Hollywood and marriage proposals?

And this isn’t a slight on Latifah, I like her.  Really I do.  But I can’t overlook the obvious especially when there are so few out Black lesbians in the entertainment industry and so many young Black lesbian women who are in need of positive role models.
