View Full Version : Suze Orman has come out!
02-23-2007, 06:44 PM
It will be in the New York Times Magazine this Sunday!
Orman says she "has a relationship with life," so Solomon presses her, and Suze then reveals that her "life partner" is Kathy Travis and, "We're going on seven years. I have never been with a man in my whole life. I'm still a 55-year-old virgin."
Orman says they'd like to get married, and both "have millions of dollars in our name. It's killing me that upon my death, K.T. is going to lose 50 percent of everything I have to estate taxes. Or vice versa."

And Kate Clinton is already making jokes about it.
BruceChris I was counting on you to break this for me. I’ve been holding this in way too long, so that "segue" will have to do. ;)
And to be clear I adore Suze Orman, so this is all in jest. It just hits too close to home to not make fun of it. (Pretty soon they won't have anything left to watch.)
Activist Suze Orman Sexualizes American Currency
Shocked Heterosexual Christians Everywhere throw Finances out with Financial Bathwater
by Screed Daily
“When I first heard the news that Suze Orman was gay, I burnt all my money.”
“Good Advice” says R. B. Trary of Focus on the Finance, who suggests that “Shocked Heterosexual Christians everywhere throw their finances out along with their financial advice.”
When pressed for clarification she said, "The real issue however is about the immorality of a woman who makes financial sense of things."
Husband and paying bills expert Spence Allerdo had this to say in response, "When a woman makes more sense of money than a man does, she makes more sense of men than men do.” He adds, “For husbands who only have one secondary income, burning money may not be the best option.”
Leading many to wonder if yesterday’s Dow Jones dip is an indication that the homosexual agenda has finally infiltrated Wall Street, or is the direct result of Suze Orman herself.
"What's the difference?" asks a recent Washington Times editorial, adding that "We can at least take comfort in the fact that our major American newspapers have not been overrun by powerful cult leaders."
A sentiment echoed by this well read reporter.
Good As You (http://www.goodasyou.org/good_as_you/2007/02/orman_puts_stoc.html) has a couple of good quips on this as well.

Below is the part that's related to her coming out.
KING: Before we get to your book designed for women and money. Why did you decide in "The New York Times" magazine and that weekly, Deborah Sullivan I think does that weekly Q&A, to come out?
ORMAN: I didn't decide to come out. Can you believe it? This is the first time in my history that any reporter ever asked me about my relationships.
KING: She didn't know?
ORMAN: I don't know if she did or not. But she asked me, I answered. I, actually, Larry have never thought I was in. You're in when you don't come to an event with your life partner. I have always, you know, I have always shown up with K.T. Everybody has always known. So she asked me and I answered.
KING: But I never have anyone say to me, you know Suze Orman is gay. I never heard that in my life.
ORMAN: No, but it's not ...
KING: No big deal but I had never heard it.
ORMAN: And I'm not sure why. Maybe they never said it because everybody kind of always assumed that it was. I mean, every business partner I ever heard has known it. Everybody knows it, that I have a relationship with or that I'm in business with. When it comes to money, it doesn't matter. My job is to educate America on how to think, feel, and act with money.
KING: Do you think now that it is out everywhere is, and people in Des Moines know it, do you think it will affect the way people regard you?
ORMAN: No, I don't. Because I'm still honest. I'm still authentic. I didn't try to get around it. I was asked a question and I answered it. It was really just that simple.
KING: Suze Orman is our guest. You told "The New York Times" you could marry K.T., you should be able to marry K.T. and decide estate issues and we are going to talk about that.
Coming up next, is it true that the one-time waitress, she's a waitress that's worth more than $25 million. Is that true? Stay tuned.
KING: One other thing on your relationship with K.T., you want to get married so that, what, you cite estate issues?
ORMAN: Here's the thing. I was asked the question, do you wish you could marry K.T.? Of course I do. Why? Because right now when a man and a wife want -- when a man and a woman are married and either one dies, they can leave $10 billion to the spouse and they can leave it estate tax free.
When you're not married, if you leave anything over $2 million as of this year to anybody, they are going to pay estate tax on it. So in my case, all the money I have is going to K.T. She's going to lose 50 percent of everything that I have over $2 million. K.T., in her own right, is a very wealthy woman. She's going to leave me everything as well, and I'm going to have to pay estate tax on everything over $2 million. It's not right, Larry.
