Reichen Lehmkuhl To Speak Easily At Speakeasy

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Reichen Lehmkuhl, host of Q Television Network’s The Reichen Show, is no stranger to sexual discussions, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy for him to speak about it.

According to The Amazing Race-winner-turned-talk show host, it still makes him blush.

But he’ll have to get over it because he’s hosting the grand opening of a modern speakeasy called Dale’s Lost Highway in Palm Springs, California.

When the restaurant opens on Feb. 18, it will model itself after Ethel’s Hideaway, an old local but long-gone speakeasy where Hollywood celebrities once came to drink and fool around during prohibition days.

Reichen says the owners want him to be the evening’s host because he represents how sex and sexual topics no longer have to be hidden behind closed doors.

But still, Reichen admits, “It’s embarrassing. I grew up as a Catholic. I don’t even talk about anal sex with my gay friends.”

But he says he’ll do his best to speak easily if anyone corners him at the opening with a steamy question.
