Exclusive Interview with SiriusXM Radio Host Fez Whatley on Finally Coming “Out”


You can hear Fez Whatley daily on the Ron & Fez show on SiriusXM from 11am to 3pm est on XM 105 Sirius 206.

After years of struggling with his sexual identity, Radio host Fez Whatley came out as gay on the Show today. This announcement came after spending the last 20 years playing a gay character on-air, while insisting to friends, family, and even himself that he was straight. In an exclusive interview with The Interrobang Fez talked with us about his struggle. Here, in his own words, is what he had to say:

I couldn’t have been more excited decades ago when I got my first big break in radio. I became a part of the hugely popular “Ron & Ron Show” in Florida. Working with my friend , we created an on-air persona for me.  His name was Fez Whatley. Fez was eccentric, over the top, flambouyant and most of all, gay. Really gay. Fez took down celebrities, talked gossip, lampooned women and did it all with a wicked gay tongue. I could say it was the part I was born to play, but back then I didn’t realize how true that was.

At this point in my adult life, I was sure I wasn’t gay. Even though, I hadn’t dated, didn’t show any interest in women and had never had sex or even made out with girl. My thoughts on that were that I had just not found the right girl yet. And when I did find her, there would be no question about my sexuality.

As you can suspect, taking on the role of gay person, meant questions came up. As the character grew in popularity, fans of the show would ask me if I was really gay? My response, “Yes,  6 to 10am weekdays,”  the hours our show was on. That was my little joke just to make sure everyone knew that there was a straight guy behind the feather boa and sequined jacket. As Fez, the gay jokes and sexual innuendo came fast and very easy. As long as everyone was laughing along I was fine.

Fast forward some years. Ron Bennington and I are still working together. We put together the “Ron & Fez Show” and have been heard in New York, Washington, DC and now on SiriusXM. All along the way, I kept playing Fez as gay as ever. One other thing stayed the same too. That “right girl” I was sure was on her way, still hadn’t shown up. And I had developed some intense friendships with straight guys. These were actually high school like crushes. Then I realized, I was just like the character I had created. I’m gay.

Coming to this realization was devastating. After all those years of denying it, it was true. Fez Whatley was no longer a character that I played on the air. He was me. And now it wasn’t funny anymore. I was now everything that I had joked about. I got depressed. I became severley anxious and couldn’t perform any longer. I’ve had huge bouts of stage fright, panic and locking up on the air. And most of all, I couldn’t make myself be Fez Whatley anymore. The whole dynamic changed for me. I was terrified about being really gay. To me, that meant that people were no longer going to be laughing with me. They were going to be laughing at me. On the show, I quit acting like Fez. I quit talking like Fez. I quit being Fez because now I didn’t have a clever line if someone came to me and asked “Are you really gay?”

The anxiety and depression and emotion became too much. I was seeing psychiatrists and taking anti-depressants that made me even more unmanageable. I couldn’t keep it in anymore. And one night, through tears, I told my best friend Ron Bennington. The acceptance that I knew would be there, was there 10 times over. But I was still dealing with the shame. So much shame and guilt of growing up in a religious family and thinking this was wrong. It felt like there were too many years of denial to embrace this now.

On the show, I started talking about gay issues. Gay marriage, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, bullying. But from a place of anger, not understanding. And with only one person knowing I was gay, certainly not from a point of authenticity. I was still calling myself Fez Whatley, but the fun was gone. All that was there was a really angry closet case. This had to change.

There are too many important issues out there facing Gay Americans for me to just be yelling out the occasional protest from the closet. I see comedians like Wanda Sykes, Margaret Cho, Mo Rocca and most recently Todd Glass, and they haven’t lost their sense of humor. They’re entertaining and still make a difference in the gay community.

Organizations like GLAAD and the Trevor Project are working so hard to protect LGTB youth from dangerous situations with bullying and from endangering themselves. To talk about these things, I need to be honest about who I am.

Today I’m coming out. To everyone. I can’t be a part of “It’s gets better” until I make sure things are going to get better for me. And that’s what I intend on doing. So that the next time I’m asked by a someone, “Are you really gay?” I can finally answer, “24 hours a day.”

    Fez, this is great.  I’m gay and have been listening to you guys for a few years.  The story you’re telling on-air is so similar to mine.  Thinking that one day I’d find the right woman and the ‘gay feelings’ would go away, having trouble even saying the word ‘gay,’ and everything else.  I’m even like you in that I wanted a real relationship, and not just random sex.  Coming out was a HUGE weight off my shoulders, and my life has been incredible ever since.  I know yours will be too.  Congrats!

  300. shotaboogray

    February 24, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    Bravo FEZ!!!! I know as a listener I’ve been frustrated at times with your on-air presence over the last couple of years. The words you wrote here really put it into perspective. I don’t think anyone could really understand your particular situation, it is very unique. I am proud of you Fez. I am extremely happy that you decided to do this and I wish you all the best in the future. WE LOVE YOU FEZ!!!

    My Initial reaction was, In other news the sky is blue and water is wet. But after hearing Fez’s story I just want to say congratulations and that I couldn’t be happier for you. I’ve only been a listener for about a year, so I’ve only ever known the sad, lost, depressed Fez. I was blown away by the Fez I heard on the radio today. Looking forward to more of this Fez. Happy Coming Out Day!

    Incredible story, Fezzie. I’m really proud of you. Today’s on-air Fez is the one I always remembered and hoped I would hear from again. Things can only get easier for you from here on out. You’re the best!

  412. Steve Hamrick

    February 24, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    Fezzie, congratulations!  Hope the weight is off of you, and you heal.  You and Ron put out the BEST radio I’ve ever heard, and I’ve been listening since 2003 when you were at WJFK.  And, we’ll be laughing with you.  You and Ron, together, are the BEST.  You’ve gotten me through some rough times, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your talents.  Welcome back.  And as for acceptance, I’m straight, and I don’t care what your sexuality is.  You’re hilarious!

    Good for you Fez. I have been listening to you & Ron ever since you joined 102.7 with Opie and Anthony. Ron & Fed Big Ass Card Member #11013. I keep that card in my wallet at all time for luck. The last few years hearing you fall away from the show were so disappointing. The Thanksgiving show gave some promise that you were coming back and then when you guys got back from vacation you were still a mess. This is a GREAT day!! I wish you all of the luck in the world and hope for nothing but the best for you. I can only hope that you talk so much on the show now that I don’t have to hear Zito’s voice anymore. I love you man. Very, very proud of you. I hope you find a partner that can make you happy and you can start enjoying your life. Don’t forget how good you feel now, you deserve it.

You are my favorite part of the Ron and Fez show and I have missed hearing your wit and personality…the one that made me fall in love with the show in the first place. Please, as Ron says, “Let your freak flag fly”! Nobody wants to be normal…normal is boring. Fez Whatley is the life of the party…everyone loves him and wants to be friends with him. In my house is a photo of me, my wife and you and Ron when we came and visited you at the old XM studio…it’s sit right with my photos of my family. Fez, you have always been accepted with us…we love you buddy.

I could feel your pain through the radio every day, not today my friend!  You sound so good, good for you Fez.  I hope you go out and enjoy yourself, you deserve it more than anybody I can think of  I know what it’s like to sit in your house and not go anywhere but work. I don’t have the issues you had but nonetheless I know what it’s like. You go out there Fez and live your life. You Fez, are AWESOME.

    Ron needs to read more of Fez’s wiki:
    “On February 24th 2012 Fez came out of the closet to the listeners live on the Ron and Fez Show. On February 27th Fez reverted back to his old self. Holding on tightly so the desk wont float away.”
     
    I was always pretty sure, btw. Nothing get’s by me. I’m smart.
    I’m very happy for you Fez!

    I hope you can let yourself be as happy as we all feel you deserve to be today.

Its your pal the EcW Zombie!!! I have known throut my life especially my bachelor years many gay guys in the late 90’s who had NYC jobs with major corporations and had to stay in the closet (except to friends and family) but that torment of not being completely out drove many a men down the wrong road of drugs and alcohol and unsafe sex just revolting against that part of their life that they could not be themselves.  I truly am sooo soooo HAPPY for you I am in tears as I type> YOU DID IT FEZZY!!! YOUR THE BEST BROTHER!! I LOVE YOU MAN!!! (No homo) hehe;-) I’d love to be apart of the fams one night on a night out in the city and have a few drinks with you and Ron & Fez nation! ENJOY IT FEZ!! BUt please please be careful as well as that guy down a few posts mentioned about old gay men with HIV but anyway HAPPY!! GAY!! HAPPY DAYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Fezzy – I’ve wanted to call (for the 1st time) over the past year …we both lost our dads around the same time…They sounded like they could have been brothers.  Anyway,  I always felt the sadness that you expressed and I wanted to give you a hug.  AND NOW you’ve made me cry again but only happy tears.  I really want to hug you now.  I’m so happy for you and your happiness is freeing even for me.  Way to go Todd – Fez!!  Here’s to living a life of fun, love and happiness.  Hugs Hugs Hugs!!  Love Beth in OH.

    When a caller asked if Fez was gay, he completely evaded the question. 7 years later…
     
    Congratulations, Fez on owning it.

I laughed & cried with you today, but Ron’s “I love you Kid” just killed me. You are so lucky to have such amazing friends and support. Let this day be the first of many for you filled with love and happiness. Thank you for being an inspiration and role model, you’ll be a wonderful partner for some lucky guy out there. xo

    It’s about time, bro. May this new admission lead you to a new level of comfort with the great person you always were, the one who loved what he did (er, does) for a living, the one the fans love. The one and only You.
     
    Every show you ever did when you were on fire, I laughed. Every show where your anxiety prevented you from performing at your best, I wanted to hug you and tell you it was OK, nothing had changed and you were still the greatest.
     
    Love you lots, Fezzie.

    It wasn’t a big announcement in the sense that anyone that is a fan of the show has known the secret for years even though it was never revealed. However, what has made it super significant is the courage that Fez mustered up to finally make it. As a fan, I am proud of him and wish him all the best on his path.  Happiness is a right, not a privledge.

    February 24, 2012 at 2:50 pm

    Fezzy, I’m a long time listener and have spent many years hurting for you knowing that your anxiety was taking a great toll not only on your time spent on the show but when you left the studio.  I’m so proud of you that you finally freed yourself from the chains that kept the Fez we all know and love from finding happiness, peace and joy.  I wish you the best and only hope that this announcement throws the weight from your chest and lets Fez be Fez.  I can’t wait to hear a great “Hiya Buddies” .  All the best.

I was hoping that this announcement was going to be something positive for you and was so excited to hear that it was.  I am a day 1 xm Ron and Fez fan and it has always been great to get to know you over the years.  Whether listening or actually getting to have a conversation with you at a bar gig it has been a pleasure.  I wonder if this will lead to a Bar 9 “Fez is out” party.  Though I hear rumors Babygirl is trying to organize something at pianos….hear she might even book a band…

We knew that when you accepted yourself you’d be back to the Fez we loved. Now its time to live the life you were meant to have. And never forget we’ll be laughing with you that first time you answer a caller who asks, “Hey Fez! What’s cum taste like”. I can’t wait to hear your comeback!

    It’s amazing that most of us felt that the character of ‘Fez’,  was only a slightly more flamboyant version of the real Fez. It’s hard to believe you had to wrestle with this so long  and in such pain.  We’ve always felt that you were an intrical part of the balance of the show and we loved and appreciated both  the humor   and the person behind Fez. You were sorely missed.
    You sounded more like the ‘old’ Fez today than you have in years.  Don’t let today’s exuberence fade ( the pendulum may try to swing back  a  little) keep moving forward.  We want the team back…

    February 24, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    Good for you Fez. It was clear on the show you did not like yourself but that was only because you were denting who you were. Be you and be proud but most of all be funny!

  738. cogsdoc

    February 24, 2012 at 5:27 pm

    Congratulations Fez!  I am so unbelievably happy for you.  It has pained me to listen to you suffer with this for so many years, and hope you enjoy every second of your new found freedom.

  739. Nickedf

    February 24, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    Fez congratulations for having the bravery to face your biggest fear head on…I hope you find the peace within yourself and carry that forward. The only one sad about the news is that little philly up in Ontario Falls Canada…I hope she is understanding and not too heartbroken.

    Fez, I am so proud of you.  You had been sounding so bad before today; but after your anouncement, you could already tell that this was the most positive thing that you could have done for yourself.
     
    I wish you good luck in this next phase of your life.

    February 24, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    when you announced you were gay, i heald up my arms in a Rocky fashion while silently yelling, yes! and when ron told you, your dad is proud of you..i became teary eyed for you. to say the words Im gay for the first time is never easy and i couldn’t be more proud and happy for you. the sky will be bluer now, fezzie. you’ll see. 🙂

    February 24, 2012 at 5:53 pm

    Bravo, Fezzie!  As an Audible listener, I now sit in wait to catch the show on Monday to listen to the conversation.  Everything you had to say in the interview is right; you now get to take full part in the issues that have come to mean so much to you.  Remember to ignore the assholes.  There are thousands of listeners and millions of Americans on your side.

  762. Nickypeeps

    February 24, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    the, “I realized i was gay and the character wasn’t funny to me anymore,” part is more fucking interesting and dynamic then Fez would ever give himself credit for.  the fact that he’s gone years without bringing that up is both heartbreaking and a complete disservice to himself

  763. Chip Chipperson

    February 24, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    So, Fez isn’t sad anymore. He’s like happy now or somethin’ Tss tss

    I was having the worst day of my life today, and I thought nothing could cheer me up.  Then a Brave Brave Soul named Fez Whatley  came out today and I was so happy for him and the rest of the Ron & fez show.  Great Job Fezzy, and thanks for cheering me up today with all your heart felt joy and love.  Way to go BigMan!!  Your Fan Joel!

    FEZ, Im happy for your Freedom, I dont how or why but after today I felt some sort of freedom also. Im a single father of two that is recently divorced. I have been strugling with It a lot over the past year, but when you and Ronny said ” theres no turning back”, something clicked….Your 100% right there is no turing back , and tomorrow is all mine to to what I please….
     
    thank you Fez! ,

    February 24, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    God Bless you Fez.  I’ve been an emotional mess for months worrying about the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT.  I too deal with depression and have been worrying constantly that you might be breaking up the greatest duo ever by leaving the show.  Every day that you come in spite of your problems gives me a little hope that i too can continue in the face of adversity.  You are an inspiration buddy, and even though I’m sure there’s a girl in Niagra Falls Ontario Canada that is very sad, I for one am happy to hear you’re gay.  

  768. Jamkat2000

    As a long time fan, I’m was thrilled to hear the happiness and conviction in Fez’s voice today. While he is the real winner in this revelation, we as fans may soon hear our beloved Fez Whatley once again have fun on the radio.

  774. Raringvt

    February 24, 2012 at 6:58 pm

    Eventhough everyone who’s ever listened to the show knew from the first listen…I’m glad Fezzie finally told “the secret.”  I hope being who you really are can help build your confidence and bring back the radio genius we know and love.

  775. Slapnutz

    February 24, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    So that the next time I’m asked by a someone, “Are you really gay?” I can finally answer, “24 hours a day.”

    Fez, I couldn’t be more proud of or happy for you than I am now. Hearing the joy and relief in your voice after you bravely made your announcement did my heart good. Reading all these wonderful comments of love and encouragement for you is fantastic. I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that I look forward to hearing everything you’ll be sharing with us about your new-found life.

  780. Teusch

    February 24, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Good for you, Fez.  I was worried about you man.  I really do hope this lightened the load a little bit for you..  I can’t imagine how difficult that was.  I’m really proud of you bro..and I’m happy for you. 

  781. MontanaSteve

    February 24, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    Fez,  I couldn’t be happier for you.  As a long time listener, you and the crew have been like family for years as I have traveled miles and miles on rural roads and have been entertained by your company.  Your heartache has been my heartache for the past few years.  Kinda dumb.  You’re ‘only’ a radio personality 3,000 miles away and you don’t know me from a hole-in-the-wall.  My fear was that your “announcement’ was that you were retiring from the radio business.  What a treat (as I traveled the many miles this morning) to hear the closet door creaking open.  (Actually, you slammed the damn thing open!)  I couldn’t have been happier to hear a weight lifted from your shoulders.  Sorry it was so hard for you.  This is 2012, for fucks sake, and you’re not announcing that you’re a witch in 1812.   It shouldn’t have been that hard.
    Good for you.  I’m glad you seem happy.  Kudos for your bravery and for coming out.
    Please, however, be careful of ‘the haters.’  You know they’ll be coming out.  Don’t let them steal your freedom.
     
    And BTW, how cool is it to have a friend like Ronny.  You are indeed blessed.
    Oh, and please…  We need a ‘Fez-a-torial’ on this chapter in your life.

    I know this will sound rube-ish.. But I took a half day vacation today and drove about a hundred miles to a casino. I did this so I could hear the big announcement. I was seriously intrigued by the whole set up leading up to this morning. So just as I arrived at the casino, Fez came on the air and made the announcement. I sat in the parking lot and realized that I will always remember where I was when Fez came out. That is kind of cool. To top it off, I came out 300 bucks to the good, so it was a really nice day overall. Thanks Fez from a straight guy who is rooting for your happiness.

I believe in the after life and I’m sure that not only did you make your dad proud today but hearing you truly happy for the first time in a year warmed his heart. What you did today took corage that most of us would only dream of having.

    February 24, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    Bravo!!! Well said! You are an inspiration to me every single day, as I struggle to figure out who I am! Is it too much to say you can be a role model? I don’t want you to feel it as pressure to “be something or someone”. Just by virtue of being honest, you can help us shed the cloak of shame. Thank you more than you’ll ever know!!

    The hetrosexual dating scene just got younger, happier, smarter, thinner, quicker, more handsome, less bald, and better smelling. (Zing! Welcome back Fez!)

    Fez,
    I find this hard to say without sounding condescending, but I am SO incredibly proud of you. I can’t imagine how much it must have weighed you down, not being able to be YOU 24 hours a day. I’ve never dealt with anything like that personally, but have seen others go through it. But to go through it in a spotlight like you have, and to struggle so long with it has obviously been a rough road. Your “happy tears” today made me cry “happy for you tears” and to hear the difference in your voice after so long was amazing. Your courage and strength are inspiring, and will undoubtedly help others on their path to coming out as well. Bravo, sir.
    xoxo,
    GH

    Fez, what you did today took a great deal of courage, and my wife and I are proud of you. You sounded like a new man with the weight of the world lifted off you. I know opening this new chapter in your life is going to be exciting and we wish you all the luck in the world. Great job fez.

    Conratulations Fez!  Forget about being a “character” and be yourself.  I am SO happy you can finally release “IV”.  Now tell Mark Zito to SHUT THE FUCK UP!
     
    BTW, Ron is the best dude out there!

    Fez,
    What you did today was amazing and brave. I have listened to your show since you started on XM and today was a show I will never forget.  I am so proud of you and your “happy tears” seemed to indicate your closing of a rough chapter in your life. After those tears you became your awesomely funny on air person again.  You got yourself back and I got my favorite on air personality back.

    So happy for Fez today.  I really hope this leads to breakthroughs in your personal life.  For the first time in the years since I started listening, I felt like I heard the real Fezzie today

    You sounded like a guy who had been in jail with a life sentence finally being released. You’re free now, buddy!

    i would never have to defend my hetro state, and it’s stupid anyone else would have to defend their feelings.  i’m sad we’re in a place Fez would ever feel the need to justify himself.  He’s simply our friend, and a hell of a guy.

    Good for Fezzie.
     
    The walls of his closet were always very transparent in my opinion,  but it still takes balls to step out of it.

    congrats fezzy.
     
    just relax and be yourself and the funny will flow- hopefully this will help you stop wrestling with yourself in your head. 
     
    it’s a good good day for the fez man and i hope that all the support in these comments helps you feel the acceptance and love all the fans have for you.
     
    cheers.

    This was the announcement??? I knew that for years. But maybe that is why he has been so stressed. 
    I am gay and I came out at 19 and you feel as though you can BREATHE!!!!! It is sad he came out now, but at least he did it.
    I hope he finds love!

    I can honestly say nothing made me happier in a very long time then hearing Fez today. I really think Fezzie’s story has legs in the mainstream. As much as we h
