Carolyn Moos: How Jason Collins Told Me He Was Gay
Carolyn went on Access Hollywood and said that Jason left her a message and said “please call me back as soon as possible.” She said that she was “concerned” but had no idea what it was about.
“I have something very important to tell you I need you to sit down,” she said. “This is something that I’ve been discovering for a very long time and I’ve also supressed for a very long time.”
She went on to say that she wants him to be happy: “Everyone deserves to be happy, everyone deserves to live in their own skin. So for him to wake upon a daily basis not being able to do that, it hit me really hard. It still is, I’m still processing it.”

She said that when they were together he was very romantic.
“He is, he’s very funny and creative- doing things that come out of the heart,” she says. “Presence is the best present. A hand-written card is better than a material.”
