Haggard, pictured left, was of course the preacher outed by former Denver escort Mike Jones, who recognized his meth-loving client one day preaching the gospel on TV.
Mike, a long-time gay activist, decided to out Haggard after months of observing his hypocritical support of anti-gay-marriage laws.
The shitstorm that followed is chronicled in a new HBO documentary called The Trials of Ted Haggard, which debuts January 29th. Oprah just taped a show with Haggard set to air next week. But she declined to save a seat for Mike. “The studio was in contact with me but decided that I was not RELEVANT to the story now,” Mike wrote in a letter to the Denver Post.
For a gay man, Oprah’s rejection must be harder to swallow than Ted Haggard’s flaccid crystal dick. And we’re assuming there was little consolation when Oprah asked Mike to pen a public letter to Haggard, which was read on the air. Excerpts include:
Dear Ted: … I hope you understand the anger and sadness that overcame me once I discovered who you were … I believe you are a good person and could do so much more, my only sadness is that you have decided to make your comeback so publicly that [it] will open old wounds and new ones …
Mikey’s not an escort anymore, but we’re pretty sure he’d be willing to blow someone to get on Oprah. Any producers out there need some quick head?
