Just when Val was hoping she could put this whole gay rumor with her old college roommate Sharon Love behind her on 'Single Ladies' (Mon., 9PM ET on VH1), the paparazzi showed up and ruin everything.
Of course, when Sharon -- guest star Queen Latifah -- started brushing wool off of Val's rear end, what did they expect to happen?
Sharon was actually hoping to push the gay angle as a career booster. She had her eye on the black, big-boned woman-sized hole in the daytime television landscape and declared that "gay is the new black."
But Val is trying to make things work with Jerry, which isn't made easier by that picture of her and Sharon on the cover of a tabloid magazine with the headline 'Sharon & Val Caught in the Act During a Sexy Shopping Spree!' We love how the details are completely made up.
