We can not stop being SO proud of Jason Collins for breaking the mold and coming out to the world, but one person is still struggling with his revelation: Carolyn Moos, his ex-fiancée.

Granted, Collins broke up with Moos long before he came out as gay, but she is still struggling with all of it, and penned a column for Cosmo’s August issue.

In the piece, she talks about when they dated, their relationship and how she’s coping now.

She starts by saying:

The night featured a memorial for the late Los Angeles Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss as well as an award ceremony for athletes such as US soccer superstar Hope Solo and Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul!

But the real guest of honor was none other than Jason Collins, who earned the title of Inspirational Athlete of the year for his decision to become the first active player to come out as openly gay in a major U.S. sport!

Jason Collins Talks About Coming Out To His Twin Brother On Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayJimmy KimmelBasketballFamily

For those of you who just can't get enough of Jason Collins, we have some GREAT news for you! There are TWO of him! Well, sort of…

Jason and his identical twin brother Jarron Collins had us seeing double when they made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about the big guy's life since becoming the first openly gay player in a major U.S. men's sport!

But before the NBA center came out to the rest of the world, he says had to let his brother in on the news first. Although Jarron was a bit caught off guard at first, he says he has nothing but love for Jason:

"Oh come on, he's my twin brother. Of course I'm gonna be supportive of him all the time. That's just the way it is."

Awww! Nothing like a little brotherly love to warm our hearts!

Ch-ch-check out the rest of the clip (above)!

The big news has of course had a HUGE impact on Jason's life, but it's also affected Jarron as well. Mainly because he gets confused for his brother ALL the time!

We're just guessing here, but it might have something to do with the fact that they look EXACTLY the same! LOLz!

So to help avoid any confusion down the road, Jimmy brought a little gift for Jarron to make sure people know who's who!

See the HIGHlarious present for yourself …AFTER THE JUMP!!

Jason Collins Heading To Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayJimmy KimmelBasketball

jimmy kimmel jason collins jarron twins show live funny late night nba gay

What better way to get on Jimmy Kimmel Live than to make all kinds of professional sports history?? LOLz!

Jason Collins is going to be sitting down with his twin brother Jarron, and Jimmy on May 15th. They'll probably talk about favorite movies, basketball, being twins. You know, normal stuff.

Oh, and probably the fact that Jason is the first out and proud NBA player!

Kimmel is Jason's first late-night show. How did he land him? Ohhhh we don't know, maybe because ABC and ESPN have a lucrative NBA deal — with Jimmy doing primetime specials during the NBA Finals and all! Ha!

We can't wait to see what Jimmy has in store for you guys on May 15th! Have fun!

Jason Collins Denies Book Deal!!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayBookzBasketball

jason collins gay nba death threats twitter sad announcements

We were JUST hearing reports that Jason Collins had contacted THREE different publishing houses to see if he could write a memoir for them, but now it's looking like the openly gay NBA player is denying the whole thing!

His denial is a little more plausible than usual, because the sources talking about his inquiries all remained anonymous. Who's to say that he even requested at all??

Here's what he tweeted:
