Soooooooo, Cynthia Nixon is a sexual switch hitter, apparently. She "came out" to the NY Daily News, saying that she is currently seeing a woman. I guess this news would be ever so much more interesting if it weren't absolutely no surprise at all, since she had a kind of lesbian-y persona all along, so this is just kind of...dull. Now, if it turned out that Sarah Jessica Parker was gay, AND a beard for her creepy wax-figure pasty lump of a hubby Matthew Broderick (seriously, what has HAPPENED to that guy?) and his fish fetish or whatever (a la Troy McClure from the Simpsons), then THAT would be semi-exciting. This is just a yawn. But what the hell, here's what the Daily News had to say (OF COURSE THE HEADLINE WAS "SAME SEX IN THE CITY." Quelle originale!):

"Cynthia Nixon is trying a different kind of sex in the city, the Daily News has learned.

For almost 10 months now, the Emmy-winning actress has been dating another woman, sources say.

Back in June of 2003, Nixon split with Danny Mozes, the father of her two children. Last January, according to friends, she began a lesbian relationship.

Right now, Nixon, 38, does not want to be as outspoken as Rosie O'Donnell, the sources say.

But Nixon did not flinch when we asked her yesterday whether she is involved with another woman.

Speaking exclusively with the Daily News, she said, "My private life is private. But at the same time, I have nothing to hide. So what I will say is that I am very happy."

Word is that Nixon's partner is not in show business.

"She's just a private citizen who would like to remain private," says a friend...

Also, she just signed on to play Eleanor Roosevelt - rumored to have had a lesbian relationship with reporter Lorena Hickok - in the HBO movie "Warm Springs," in which Kenneth Branagh plays FDR."

That's nice how they tried to grasp at lesbian straws with the whole Eleanor Roosevelt thing. As if now that she's dating a woman, Cynthia Nixon will ONLY be portraying lesbians/rumored lesbians from this point forward. Next up: "The Martina Navritalova Story (Love Match)." Then, of course, she could play Alice B. Toklas in "Gertrude Stein: The Woman, The Myth, The Lesbian" opposite Judy Davis. And next year, a made-for-tv Lifetime special: "My Name Is Ellen DeGeneres and I'm A Lesbian: So What?" And if she decides to go back to men, she can always play the lead in "Anne Heche: A Nut's Story."
