Stacy London from 'What Not to Wear' officially came out to the world and announced who her mysterious girlfriend is. Cat Yezbak is the co-CEO of Small Beautiful Things, band member of Local Woman and London's new girlfriend.
According to PopCulture, London made the announcement in response to a tweet that went viral. "so no one was gonna tell me that stacy from what not to wear is gay and has a hot butch girlfriend????" the tweet read along with two pictures of London and Yezbak.
London posted the tweet on Instagram and made the announcement in the caption.
"NOT THAT IT’S ANY OF YOUR BUSINESS BUT... I may as well address all the stuff I hear floating around out there," London began. "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 [Cat Yezbak], 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," London continued.
"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," London added.
"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. That’s all I have to say. 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.)" London concluded.
