NOT THAT IT'S ANY OF YOUR BUSINESS BUT... I may as well address all the stuff I hear floating around out there. 2019 has been a crazy year for lots of reasons. This 1st year of coping with grief and a lot of unforeseen health issues was, at times, such a truly dark place to be. But as with most of life, there has been such incredible joy as well and the person most responsible for that is @catyezbak, who is my girlfriend and has been for over a year. Some of you may have guessed that already. All my friends and family know her well. I haven't paraded her around on social media for several reasons: 1) I've had public relationships before and I don't love that. But I want to be clear here that with Cat I felt I owed us the chance to be private since this is my first serious relationship with a woman and I'm sure there will be some hoo ha about that. But I would never hide her out of shame. 2.) It's really easy for me, a privileged white woman who is 50, to suddenly say "I'm dating a woman" with very few repercussions and I am well aware of that. Unlike me, there are countless people in the LGBTQIAP community who have had no choice in who they are, no love from family on which to lean, no support from anyone anywhere. I fell in love, truly in love, with this beautiful, sexy, kind soul and I won't apologize for that but I stand on the shoulders of a community that fought like hell for me to be able to do that openly and proudly and EASILY. It's one thing to SAY Love is Love. It's another thing to say Love is Passion and Devotion and Sex and mean it without shame or prejudice when talking about the same sex. So I used to date men. Now I date her. That's it. Happy New Year to each and every one of you. I am wishing you the best of everything this coming year. Bring it 2020. Let's go. (AND ALSO: any awful comments will be deleted immediately. My account will not tolerate hate of any kind.)
Who is Stacy London's girlfriend Cat Yezbak?
What we know so far about Cat Yezbak is that she is part of a music band called Local Woman, which is described as an indie pop duo on its Instagram account. Cat has also been collaborating with Stacy on a New York-based project called Small Beautiful Things, which London described as a "gifting service of antique collectible objects."
This is Stacy London's first serious relationship with a woman
The television star admitted she could have introduced her girlfriend before, "It's really easy for me, a privileged white woman who is 50, to suddenly say 'I'm dating a woman' with very few repercussions and I am well aware of that. I stand on the shoulders of a community that fought like hell for me to be able to do that openly and proudly and EASILY," Stacy wrote.
However, she also explained she has had public relationships before, which is something she hasn't particularly loved. The What Not to Wear star said this is her first serious relationship with a woman, which made her think she owed them the chance to be private!
