GOOD NEWS: THERE’S A GAY-FRIENDLY REALITY STAR (SEAN DUFFY) IN THE HOUSE!
Real World: Boston 1997 star Sean Duffy, 38, (above left) was elected to the House of Representatives in Wisconsin despite his colorful TV history. Sean, a conservative Republican, did not play up his reality star past in his campaign, but his opponent tried to use it against him. In fact, that opponent, Dan Mielke, used a Real World gay oriented mockumentary “The Wedding Video” (made by another Real World star Norman Korpi) (above right) that Sean appeared in as ammo against him. Norm, the first openly gay MTV star, filmed the tongue-in-cheek gay wedding video with Sean, his wife Rachel (another Real World star) and other Real World alumni. His opponent questioned Duffy’s morals and blasted the video as obscene. Happily, voters preferred the gay-friendly Duffy.
