Lance Bass is Gay -- and Divorced!

It wasn't really a shock when Lance Bass came out of the closet and announced he was gay. What is surprising, though, is that the former boy bander admits that he's actually divorced! Lance told E! News that in "one of those crazy moments," somewhere between 1999 and 2000, he and a girlfriend actually tied the knot in Las Vegas. "People do stupid things in the heat of the moment. I've been in Vegas where I've gotten married for, like, five minutes," he said. "No one talks about that though."

So, who was the lucky former Mrs. Bass? Lance isn't telling -- "Just a friend of mine," he said. "You know it was one of those crazy moments where you're with a friend and you're like 'Hey, wouldn't it be fun if we did this?' and that's all that happened. It's the Vegas thing to do." Really, Lance admits, they were just two kids looking to have some fun. "In fact, the only reason we did it is because we wanted to get free drinks all night. And we didn't get one. We're like, 'We just got married!' They're like, 'Ah. Whatever.' " Not going into details of the split, Lance says he and his former wife are still pals. "We're friends," he said. "It's great."

So funny! But wasn't *NSync, like, the biggest thing since New Kids on the Block around that time? How did the media not get a hold of that juice? Also, I wish that I was the one to marry and divorce Lance. I always like to have a good story to tell at parties.
