No, it wasn't Taylor Lautner that came out in People; that was a hoax. 70's sitcom kristy-mcnichol-3-440.jpegactress Kristy McNichol, however, decided to throw open the closet doors in this week's issue.

Kristy McNichol has been out of the public eye for 20 years. Now she's chosen to come out - to try to help kids who are being bullied.

McNichol, 49, who has lived with her partner Martie Allen, also 49, for the past two decades, decided to make a statement about her sexuality and share this photo because she is "approaching 50" and wants to "be open about who I am."

Damn. I don't really remember McNichol or either of the shows she was in. I think I'd rather be writing about Taylor Lautner.
