The former fiancée of NBA star Jason Collins, who in April came out as the first openly gay athlete in a major American team sport, has spoken for the first time about the heartache of losing the man she loved.

Carolyn Moos had been with Collins for eight years before he called off their wedding without explanation in July 2009. “I had no idea why,” the 35-year-old reveals in the latest issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. “We had planned to have children, build a family. Nearly four years later, I got my answer. My former fiancé, Jason Collins. . . announced last spring in Sports Illustrated that he is gay.” …

“We pushed each other to be our best. On one visit, I remember taking a nap after a day of hard training, and he woke me up by rubbing a rose across my face, telling me how much he believed in me. Another time, he told me that I was his soul mate and I was meant for him.” …

Rubbed a rose across her face? That’s guilt. He must have had something rubbed across his face earlier. Cue the Dice Man!

Any guy that uses the phrase “soul mate” is likely gay

It stinks when perceptions are erroneous, but if he went to the dark side, there is nothing lost but an illusion of someone she thought she had.

What she lost wasn't real.

I wouldn't go THAT far, but he's definitely "fixable."

The point is that like all homosexuals, he is the epitome of selfish behavior.

One would suspect that at some point in their nine year relationship a sexual component was there.

If a person is able to perform sexually with a member of the opposite sex, are they truly homosexual? Or just what was always said about them, sick, mentally confused degenerates?

Considering she wasted 8 of her fertile years on him and is now looking at a future life as a childless spinster or potential crazy cat lady, yeah, she was robbed.

Ladies, do not waste time on these useless types. Men who want to get married, stay married and raise a family will move directly toward that goal, not shilly shally dance around it.

8 years with a guy and never a hint he was playing for the other team the whole time? Hard to believe....

What is interesting about this article is if you replace the word “gay” with “Democrat” it reads about the same.

Why doesn’t the guy just admit his door swings both ways?

Has anyone ever considered he isn’t gay, he was at the end of his career, and didn’t have a lot going for him, so he did the only thing he could to rejuvenate him: say he is gay?

I guess this is really a cultural thing..but if she was with him for 8 years..doesn’t that make him “bi-sexual?” Also, was he ever asked if he had relationships with men during those 8 years? Hey, maybe that’s not cheating...??

Hmmm ... Andrew Dice Clay pretty much put the "bisexual" thing in perspective:

"And bisexuals. Let me explain something to you. There is no bisexual. You either suck d***, or you do not suck d***. I mean, what do these guys do, get up in the morning and flip a coin to decide? Heads I want hairpie, tails- b***s across the nose! Oh! And they’re too sensitive man. They don’t know if they wanna be called gays, fairies, homosexuals. I call ‘em c***suckers! I think that about spells it out. The gays want their rights, I’ll give them their rights. 10% off of vaseline now get the **** back in the closet!"

He's crude, rude, vulgar, obscene, and socially unacceptable.

He's also CORRECT.

ADC is the ONLY comic to ever sell out Madison Square Garden for 2 consecutive nights..but now, he’s far too un-PC..whereas a no-talent jerk like Bill Maher is fawned over.

She’s 35 and single and her fertility has been cut in half and is dropping like a stone.

With no Mr. Right on the horizon.

He wasted a good chunk of her prime using her as a beard.

My point is, if family is a primary life goal... don’t date some nimrod for 8 years. It’s fish or cut bait after 18 months.

Oh, please. You have no idea what she has on the horizon. That was not the point of the article. I had kids at 39, wake up!

Your personal experience does not change the scientific facts of female fertility nor does it change the math.

Your great fortune also doesn’t change this woman’s personal history. She wasted eight years on this narcissist who did not care enough about her on a personal level to NOT use her as a beard.

He thought so little of her, he didn’t even bother to tell her personally, she found out from a friend who read his coming out story.
