Dinah Was Gay???… and Other Questions

Fernanda Rocha, the newest and first real gay Housewife of Orange County, is coming to the biggest lesbian event in the world, The Dinah!

The sexy Brazilian fitness instructor, entrepreneur and newest cast member on the original and most viewed OC reality TV Series is already taking Orange County by storm and is readying to cause quite a sandstorm in the desert strutting her hot bikini bod as she joins the 15,000-plus lesbian participants flocking to Palm Springs to attend the yearly legendary lesbian pilgrimage known as The Dinah.  

Fernanda Rocha is a personal trainer who has been featured in the past on the Real Housewives of Orange County. She’s a fitness trainer who specializes in a workout called ‘Brazilian Booty.’ In September 2010, it was announced that Rocha would join the cast of this Bravo hit full-time. Rocha has created her own line of DVDs and clothing.

As untraditional as it gets, 33-year-old out lesbian Rocha has been making headlines for being the first lesbian on Real Housewives and she’s already taken shots at Kim Zolciak and Danielle Staub, saying they were experiencing a “faux lesbian experimental stage. I’m the real thing.”

The new season of The Real Housewives of OC kicks off on Bravo March 6, 2011. Rocha will be attending The Dinah March 30 through April 3, 2011 at The Riviera Spa & Resort in Palm Springs, California.

NOTE:  The RHOOC’s newest season hasn’t premiered yet, so we don’t know anything about Fernanda Rocha except for articles such as the above that state that she’s gay, which have been strategically placed in various media outlets.  Usually I don’t include these articles here, but I had to post this one.  First and foremost,  I had no idea that Dinah Shore was gay!  For readers who have more knowledge regarding Dinah Shore, could you verify this information?  I’m a bit surprised, as this is one ‘rumor’ that I have never heard… and I keep current on such ‘rumors’… so would greatly appreciate someone presenting some info about Dinah’s gay life… did Burt Reynolds know???   The other reason I included this article was that Miss Andy and Bravo are promoting Fernanda Rocha emphasizing the fact that she’s a lesbian… not that there’s anything wrong with that!  OK… she’s the first ‘real’ lesbian cast member of the Housewives franchise and Miss Andy/Bravo is totally behind this… again, not that there’s anything wrong with that!  Finally, the main reason I included this article was this:   Why was Elaine Lancaster (aka James Davis) heavily promoted as the first drag queen diva cast member of the Real Housewives of Miami, only to be left on the cutting room floor when the RHOM premiered?  Wouldn’t Elaine Lancaster being featured as a cast member of the Miami franchise be another big ‘first’ and an additional feather in Miss Andy’s rainbow chapeau?  What happened to Miss Lancaster, Miss Andy???
