Broadway legend Joey Grey, the 82-year-old Cabaret Tony and Oscar winner, told People magazine “I’m a gay man.” It’s not a big secret but he’s never spoken about it publicly before. He was married to actress Jo Wilder for 24 years and they had two children together – actress Jennifer Grey and son James, a chef.
Grey still acts – he’s appeared in a number of TV series including Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Private Practice – but he’s also making it as a photographer. He’s got another photo book coming out this year – he’s published four! – as well as a memoir. It’s tentatively titled “Master of Ceremonies.” When the New York Times asked Grey to name show-business books he admires, he said: “Andre Agassi’s memoir seemed near perfect to me, as did Patti Smith’s.” Smith’s memoir, “Just Kids,” reveals her life with her lover, artist Robert Mapplethorpe, who discovered he was gay. It won the National Book Award. In “Open: An Autobiography,” Agassi revealed his meth addiction.
