The Perfect Political Beard

donkey rainbow[Blind Gossip] Politicians tend to be just as sensitive as athletes when it comes to covering up their homosexuality.

One rising star in the world of politics is particularly shady about his dating life. He is gay, but does not want to be labelled as gay. So he occasionally engages a beard to give him that straight-guy look.

His newest beard could not be more perfect for the role! She is not a celebrity, but she is pure Hollywood and understands exactly how the beard game is played. Another added benefit? She lives so far away from him that it provides the perfect excuse as why they spend so little time together and why their photo ops will be so infrequent.

    Politician: Cory Booker, New Jersey senator

    Girlfriend (not famous): Bianca Levin, entertainment lawyer

    He works in DC and NJ, she is in Los Angeles. He’s going deeper in the closet as his political star rises. Very sad.

  2. ravenglass says

    Cory Booker has a new beard named Bianca Levin. She’s an entertainment lawyer & lives in Los Angeles.

    • What Had Happened Was ... says

      I would’ve thought that too, but I just read this week that he’d gotten married within the past week. And apparently, their baby is due very soon. Sooo…

  4. Ginger says

    Cory Booker. I wish people would stop giving him a hard time. – About being gay or not black enough. Ugh.

  5. cgrant0423 says

    I’m going with Corey Booker (just elected to the Senate – I believe) and his “girlfriend” Bianca Levin. She’s a Hollywood lawyer.

    this is Cory Booker, US Senator, lots of speculation about his orientation.
    Girlfriend is Bianca Levin, there’s an item about them today on Vanity Fair daily. She’s an entertainment lawyer in LA “pure hollywood”.

  10. jocar says

    Corey Booker of Newark NJ was recently involved in a “scandal” that fizzled out rapidly because he is a good person and a man of integrity. Who in the hell cares who he might like 2 sleep with? We need scads more politicians like him.

    • scumby says

      no, he is corrupt like most every other politician do your own research. plenty of scandals and shady deals

      • wendybar says

        YOU are right. He is a liar, and just as corrupt as most every other politician. We Do NOT need more politicians like him.

  11. pytmjfan says

    Cory Booker is supposedly dating an entertainment lawyer from LA, so that covers him perfectly!

  12. shauxnough says

    Politician: Cory Booker
    Girlfriend: Bianca Levin, Hollywood entertainment lawyer, hence the “pure hollywood” comment.

  13. randijane says

    Politician: Corey Booker
    Girlfriend: Bianca Levin, entertainment lawyer in LA for Gang Tyre Ramer and Brown talent firm.

  14. BexSteve says

    This is former Newark Mayor and present US Senator from New Jersey Corey Booker who is dating a talent lawyer Bianca Levin from Hollywood. He must have higher aspirations than Senator if he is still in the closet.

    • mugofmead111 says

      Good point. Chris Christie was just re-elected as NJ governor. That position does have term limits. Maybe Cory Booker wants to run for governor once Christie leaves? Just speculation.

  15. nonsequiturchica says

    First person I thought of- Cory Booker, new Senator from NJ.

    He is a rising star and it just came out that he is dating an entertainment lawyer from LA.

  16. obxmoxie says

    Corey Booker. His sexuality has been questioned before. His new girlfriend is a Hollywood lawyer, living in LA.

  17. debsndogs says

    Politician: Cory Booker… Former Newark mayor, now NJ senator.
    Girlfriend: Entertainment lawyer Bianca Levin
    Hint: Donkey – Booker is a democrat.

    NYP Page Six-
    Despite being famously noncommittal about his sexuality, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker has a high-powered new girlfriend — Hollywood entertainment lawyer Bianca Levin, Page Six can exclusively reveal.
    LA sources said Booker has been secretly seeing beautiful Levin since she co-hosted a June fund-raiser for his Senate campaign at the Rooftop by Gordon Ramsay in West Hollywood.
    And New York-born Levin, 36, certainly makes an impressive partner. The Yale law graduate is a partner at LA’s venerable Gang Tyre Ramer & Brown talent firm, which reps such titans as Steven Spielberg and Clint Eastwood. Levin personally represents Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and “Twilight” star Ashley Greene, among others.
    A source told us, “Bianca is a very accomplished woman and has started to accompany Booker to certain events. But both have very demanding jobs — he in DC, and Bianca in Los Angeles.”
    Levin was even listed in the Hollywood Reporter’s “Hollywood’s Fastest-Rising Stars” in 2011, at which time she told the publication she’s focusing on signing emerging talent. “People take on entertainment lawyers very early in their careers now, so it’s super-competitive,” she says. “You’ve got to always be on the lookout for great talent.”
    In an August interview with the Washington Post, Booker, 44, talked about his “great dismay” that he has not “settled down with a life partner.”
    Booker said, “People who think I’m gay, some part of me thinks it’s wonderful. Because I want to challenge people on their homophobia. I love seeing on Twitter when someone says I’m gay, and I say, ‘So what does it ­matter if I am?’ ”
    A spokesman for Booker said, “We don’t comment on the senator’s personal life.” Calls to Levin’s office were not returned.

    Corey Booker

    Bianca Levine the entertainment lawyer

    Maybe she can represent him when this blows up in his face.

  20. jhwalker says

    Politician: Cory Booker, US Senator from NJ
    Girlfriend: Bianca Levin, Hollywood entertainment lawyer

    Sad he feels he has to stay in the closet :/

    • mugofmead111 says

      I wish he could come out too (if he were gay), I can understand why he doesn’t want to. He represents the state of New Jersey which only started to recognize same-sex marriage late this year. Governor Christie is opposed to gay marriage and his administration tried to block legislation that would have given legal recognition to same-sex marriage.

    Politicia: Cory Booker, Senator from NJ
    Girlfriend: Bianca Nevin, Hollywood entertainment lawyer who lives in LA

  22. PghDude says

    Too Easy…Cory Booker, who’s obviously on the “down low.”

    Girlfriend is a Hollywood lawyer…don’t recall her name.

    • mugofmead111 says

      Even if Booker were outed, hopefully it won’t be as scandalous as the McGreevey situation or the Anthony Weiner sexting situation. At least Cory Booker doesn’t have a wife and children at home! :)

  23. amykl says

    “girlfriend” is LA entertainment lawyer Bianca Levin.

    Nice that she’s in LA and he’s in Newark,NJ, eh?

  24. Aiko says

    I remember watching a mini documentary series set in Newark on the Sundance Channel that followed Cory Booker on his journey to help the city’s urban communities. In one particular scene he is in his apartment, and I am thinking to myself “Why is this handsome man living alone without a nice lady?” Then that feeling that he may be a closeted homosexual hit me. Now that I think about it, he kind of gives off vibes since I watched in the mini-series.

    My answer is Cory Booker, and this is the first time I have read anything about a beard he is paired with.

    • NYCAccountant says

      Sorry, you jerk! Gonna call you out on your racism. Easy for you to do, considering that you are completely anonymous on this site. Coward. So now because somebody is a black male, they must be on the down low? Wow. Isn’t this site moderated?…

    Still waiting for Lindsey Graham to come out. A guy named Lindsey is like a boy named Sue – no chance.

    P.S. Re: ” She lives so far away from him” – Cory Booker is based in New Jersey and Bianca Levin is based in L.A.
