Love doesn’t always have to happen at first sight. Just ask Kim Catullo. That is exactly what happened with her and her eventual partner. When she was asked to meet Christine Quinn, she refused to do so. At that time, Quinn was running for mayor of the city back in 2013. Fast forward many years later.
Catullo and Quinn are now happily together seemingly forever. The two are now married and their wedding was filled with the who’s who of the city. Some of the special guests from that impressively long list included Chuck Schumer, Michael Bloomberg, and Andrew Cuomo.
Georges LeBar & RuPaul
Hosts of the biggest shows on TV need to be in healthy relationships too, you know.

The couple have been together for more than two decades. LeBar and RuPaul met in 1994 at New York City’s Limelight nightclub. They have been together since. LeBar has a 50-acre Wyoming Ranch. RuPaul describes himself as a shapeshifting drag queen who does whatever he wants at anytime.
