Are you sitting down? You might want to sit down.

Sitting? Okay, good. Take a deep breath, dear reader. I’ve got some earth-shattering news for you.

Sean Hayes, beloved star of television’s Will & Grace, recently came out to The Advocate.

Forgive me if there are any typos, friends, but my hands are trembling from shock. Sean Hayes — the Sean Hayes — gay? Really?
