Carson Kressley: 'Queer Eye' Forced Me To Come Out To My Parents

Posted: Updated:

He's known internationally as a gay style guru, but Carson Kressley says he didn't officially come out to his family until age 30, just before his big break as one of the "Fab Five" on "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy."

"I was really, really wimpy," Kressley tells Joy Behar. "It's one of those classic stories where I regret it that I did because it builds a wall between you and your family."

As for his family's reaction, the "Dancing With The Stars" alum recalled, "Of course they knew, and when I actually did come out to them, they were like, 'Duh!'"
