LisaRaye McCoy Says Bisexual Men Must Be Called Out, Given ‘Gay Test’ [VIDEO]

Published

*LisaRaye McCoy is catching heat for labeling bisexual men as “suspect” during a recent episode of the web series “Cocktails With Queens.”

The actress was speaking with co-hosts Claudia Jordan, Syleena Johnson, and Vivica A. Fox about Andrew Gillum, the former Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate who got caught up in a gay scandal earlier this year. He took a break from social media following the controversy and apparently went to rehab for substance abuse. During a recent conversation with Tamron Hall, Gillum came out as bisexual. 

“You know what? I just, I think it’s so unfortunate because when you get busted, you know, and then you’re just forced to come on out with it, and it’s almost like he could’ve pleaded the fifth still,” McCoy said of the politician.

She then suggested he’s not really bisexual, but gay.

“Now he’s gotta come on out and say, well, you know what, I’m not completely completely gay, I’m just bi,” she said.

Fox noted that it’s “the world we are living in.”

“People are fluid,” she added. “They are not afraid to love who they might want to that night, baby.”

Fox said many downlow men mislead women into thinking they are “over here and then you come to find out they’re on both sides,” McCoy responded, “They gotta be outed! They gotta be busted!”

She then explained the “gay test” that women can use to confirm if their boyfriends and husbands prefer men. 

McCoy suggested “using your finger a little bit” to see if the man enjoys it. If the does, he’s gay.

*Unfortunately we have bad news regarding an iconic Black music singing group. Pamela Hutchinson, one of the 3 sisters in The Emotions, has passed away. She was 61.

Pamela’s passing was posted on the sisters’ official Facebook page on Sunday, noting that she made her transition on Friday, explaining that she succumbed to health issues she’d been battling for years.

“Now our beautiful sister will sing amongst the angels in heaven in perfect peace,” the post stated. “During this time, the family kindly asks for fans and friends to respect our privacy. We appreciate all kind words, photos, and videos you may want to post for our beloved Pamela and of course your loving prayers.”

The sisters statement also said this ab out Pamela:

“A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. We love you, Pamela!”

Here’s more via TMZ:

Pam was the youngest of the famous trio — her older sister, Wanda and Sheila are a good 5 to 7 years older than her … which might have to do with the fact that Pam actually replaced the other original sister, Jeanette. Despite their age differences, The Emotions left their mark in music history … of course, with a major contribution of Pamela as one their key singers.

The group got its start in the ’60s, but skyrocketed to mainstream fame in the 70s with a string of hits that landed on the Billboard charts. They’re perhaps best known for their single “Best of My Love,” but they also have a legendary collab with Earth, Wind and Fire.


The Emotions are featured on EWF’s late 70s hit “Boogie Wonderland” — a gig that landed them a Grammy nomination. Over the span of their multi-decade career, they cranked out 9 albums … 2 of which were certified gold, and one went on to platinum status. The Emotions pumped out countless singles too.

Our condolences to the the Hutchinson sisters and families
