Kyle Richards is accused of being a "lesbian on ozempic," Wayne Brady comes out as pansexual, and LGBT advocate Ryuchell dies at 27.
Kyle Richards Accused Of Being A ‘Lesbian On Ozempic’
Jeff Lewis appeared on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” with Heather McDonald and supported the rumors that Kyle Richards is a lesbian with Morgan Wade.
“Kyle and I are friends, and… she didn’t tell me she’s a lesbian on Ozempic,” said Lewis.
McDonald also supported the ongoing rumor.
“One of the side effects of Ozempic is lesbianism,” said McDonald. “Your ring falls off because you’re so thin, and then your ring slips into someone else.”
McDonald went on to say that she “hopes” the two are together.
“I’m not not talking to Jeff Lewis, I just don’t feel like responding to Jeff Lewis right now, to be honest…” said Richards on Amazon Live.
Wayne Brady Comes Out As Pansexual

The actor, TV host, and five-time Emmy Award winner Wayne Brady came out as pansexual in an interview with PEOPLE Magazine.
“To me, pan means being able to be attracted to anyone who identifies as gay, straight, bi, transsexual or non-binary. Being able to be attracted across the board,” said Brady.
Brady also spoke on how he has felt attracted to “certain men” but has pushed those feelings aside “because of how I was raised, and because I live in today’s world, and it’s scary as shit.”
Brady said he was taught that calling someone gay was a way to hurt or emasculate them from a young age, but apparently doesn’t know that the term “transsexual” is highly offensive.
LGBT Advocate and TV Star Ryuchell Dies At 27

Japanese star Ryuji Higa or Ryuchell died at 27 early last month. Reports across Japanese media say the cause of death is “likely suicide.”
Higa gained stardom for helping “genderless-kei” fashion gain popularity. “Genderless-kei” has been described as incorporating binary beauty practices and versatile fashion items to achieve an androgynous look. Higa supported the rising fashion trend in order to help create a “genderless standard of beauty.”
Higa was a longtime advocate for LGBT rights and social issues across Japan, frequently speaking on the topic in public and actively supporting and participating in Tokyo’s Rainbow Pride, one of the largest pride events across all of Asia.
Higa divorced their husband Okuhira to “start a new kind of family” wherein both parents would continue to raise their son. The former couple discussed their decision with Very Magazine, revealing that part of it stemmed from Higa wanting to explore their gender identity, sexuality and invest in their own self-exploration.
Okuhira was abroad with their son at the time of Higa’s death but returned to make press statements and arrangements for Higa’s death.
