I thank you Mr. Merv Griffin. Even though you are long dead. Even though you were a billionaire celebrity. I still thank you. You have provided me with the single best personal identifier to share about myself.
Merv Griffin was a closet bisexual. Okay…he was in the closet and right up to his death despite having romantic/sexual relationship with famous women all the while having illicit affairs with a handful of men on his television programs.
In a magazine interview (there are disputed reports as to which magazine he was quoted in saying this) but when asked about his sexuality – in typical Merv swagger and wit he replied:
“I am a quartersexual. I’ll do anything with anyone for a quarter.”
This is absolutely beautiful!!! In my night of revelry last evening I was able to lay down this joke a few times… much to the delight and amusement of party mates.
Thank you Merv!! I am now officially a “quartersexual Lethbian”
