Earlier in the year, Alexis Arquette publicly accused Will and Jada Pinkett Smith of being hypocrites for boycotting the Oscars over concerns of racism while they themselves perpetuated the discrimination of gays by being closet homosexuals. The post was eventually deleted from Facebook because that’s a hornet’s nest you don’t kick unless you’re walking around with Peter Thiel money. Except now comes word that Alexis was getting ready to write a tell-all book outing everyone in Hollywood, but died over the weekend before she had a chance. Page Six reports:
Alexis, who died Sunday at 47 after a long illness, had been approached several times to write a tell-all book, and was considering the most recent offers.
“She told me she was gearing up, and it was draining her because she knew she could blow the lid off a lot of closeted gay men and women and their respective marriages,” one friend told me.
“She said, ‘I’m not quite ready for that kind of battle. But when I do write my book, and uncover all the hypocrisy, this town will come to a stop.’”
While this makes Alexis’ death seem all kinds of suspicious, PEOPLE confirms she died of complications from AIDS, and it’s not like there’s some stupid rich, allegedly bisexual Hollywood player out there carrying fast-acting super AIDS who needs to protect his bad boy heterosexual image. That’d be crazy, right?
Huh, how’d that picture get there? Must be a glitch.
