Danny Roberts has tongues wagging about which “straight” MTV cast member he slept with long ago
It’s been more than a decade since Danny Roberts was part of the cast of The Real World: New Orleans.
So why is it that we just can’t quit this guy?
A year ago, I was at the premiere of DTLA and when I spotted him, almost hyperventilated. Gathered myself enough to have a brief chat and have a photo taken but it was not easy!
Anyway, Danny surfaced again this week on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.
It was a reunion of MTV reality show stars and a group that included Roberts was if they had ever hooked up with any of their fellow castmates on Real World/Road Rules Challenge (Danny appeared in 2002).
All said no – except for Danny.
So who was it everyone wanted to know.
‘Can’t say because he’s straight and married now,’ he answered.
Keeping the identity of his lover secret is one of the reasons why Danny is so well remembered even a decade after his reality show stardom.
During filming of the New Orleans season, Roberts was dating a US Army Captain named Paul Dill whose face had to be blurred out on screen because the military’s anti-gay Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy was still in place.
Now 36, Danny was so popular then that even Neil Patrick Harris was a fan and in his pre-coming out days, looked at Danny as a role model.
