Andy Cohen on the gaybe boom.

on Nov 28, 2007

There is indeed a gayby boom underway, in case you were wondering or had felt it yourselves. I have 10 friends who are pregnant or in the process of adoption or surrogacy. It's hitting my generation all at the same time. We seem to be about 10 years off, with baby fever hitting us as we turn 40.

The timing makes perfect sense if you consider that most people my age came out, and came into themselves, in their 20s, and then spent a solid 10-15 years extending adolescence and then questioning wtf is next.

I have to interrupt this (boring?) soliloquy about the Gayby boom to say I have never in my days seen so many people being shlepped around an airport in carts! We did a documentary on TRIO called "Texas: America Supersized" about what a problem obesity is in Texas and I am seeing it firsthand this morning. Maybe if people walked to their freaking gates they could combat the problem.

Grass roots, people! Ok, luckily for you, it's time for me to board this plane. See you in LA LA.
