Shaun Sulligan -- the hubby from "Marriage Boot Camp" with a porn past -- is pissed that the show leaked his XXX work in a desperate attempt to drum up ratings.
As TMZ previously reported, Sulligan shot two scenes for a gay website called "Straight Guys for Gay Eyes." The scenes were shot in 2009 ... one sex scene with a woman and one solo masturbation scene. The sex scene is shot POV on him, not the chick.
Sulligan tells TMZ he deeply regrets doing the videos, and only did it because he was homeless and living in his car at the time. He says he would NEVER do anything like it again.
Sulligan and his wife Sofia are particularly pissed off at the show for leaking the story because they say it was never brought up during filming and it was never an issue between them.
The couple says they are seriously considering skipping the reunion show ... unless the show writes them a big check.
Now we get it.
Tight Pants Don't Make You Gay
They Make You Fashionable
3/11/2014 12:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Skinny jeans don't dictate sexual orientation ... so says ex-NFL running back Clinton Portis who tells TMZ Sports he's already prepping for a wave of homophobic hate over his extremely tight pants.
The former Washington Redskins superstar rocked his new look during an appearance on the NFL Network last week ... and people instantly went to Twitter to deliver the gay jokes, such as:
-- "Clinton Portis dressing like he heading to the local gay bar & sh*t!!"
-- "Clinton Portis pants on nfl am gay as sh*t."
-- "Is Clinton portis Gay cause what he have on is wow Lmbo"
But Clinton tells TMZ Sports it doesn't bother him ... saying, ""People are really judgmental. They'll make comments, but I'm comfortable with myself. I know I like girls. I felt good about the outfit."
Portis -- who notes he bought the entire outfit at Zara for $300 (including the shoes) -- says, "People say 'I can't believe you wore that.' Give them some time and everyone will be wearing it."
'Marriage Boot Camp' Hubby
I Got Gay Men Off
... For Money
3/10/2014 10:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Porn has ripped marriages apart before ... but not like this.
TMZ has learned, one of the husbands from Season 2 of "Marriage Boot Camp" once did porn for a gay website called "Straight Guys for Gay Eyes."
Shaun Sulligan -- porn name Johnny Walsh -- shot two scenes for the website back in 2009 ... one sex scene with a woman and one solo masturbation scene.
It's pretty unusual -- the website basically markets straight sex to a gay male audience ... focusing on the man's body instead of the woman's. But hey, whatever floats your boat.
Sources close to the show tell us, Shaun's porn past has become a sore subject in his marriage and will be addressed on the show.
FYI, Shaun shot the porn the same year he met his wife Sofia -- we're guessing she's not too happy about that.

If you had "under one month" in your "When Will Michael Sam Cash in on His Newfound Fame" office pool, then congrats ... YOU'RE A WINNER!!!
Sam, who is about to be drafted into the NFL and thus become the first openly gay man to play in the league, has launched his own line of merchandise, which is now for sale on his website.
The site is selling t-shirts and buttons with slogans like "Stand With Sam" and "#SamStrong." The majority of the merchandise is in black, white, and gold (his college colors).
But Sam is no fool ... he's got a few items for sale thats use the rainbow flag, a prominent symbol in the gay rights community. As the old saying goes ... know your customer.
A portion of the proceeds will be going to at-risk youth in the St. Louis area.
'RuPaul's Drag Race' Star
CrossFit Is Wrong
No Balls = No Man
3/7/2014 10:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Balls make the man ... and lack of balls make the woman ... so says a former "RuPaul's Drag Race" star who claims CrossFit is being UNFAIR by not allowing a transgender woman to compete with the females.
TMZ Sports spoke with Carmen Carrera -- a transgender fashion model who was born a man.
Carrera tells us ... Chloie Jonsson is getting the shaft (ironically) from CF, which stated transgender athletes are only allowed to compete in the CrossFit games under their birth gender.
"When you remove your testicles ... that is it. You are no longer a male and you don’t produce testosterone," Carrera says.
"You get weaker ... your whole body switches and it starts to reshape."
Carrera adds, "Put [Chloie] under the test and I bet her [testosterone] levels are the same as the rest of the competitors. Run some tests to make it fair."
As we reported, CrossFit says it will not take testosterone levels into consideration ... insisting it's the "genetic makeup" of a person who was born a male that "confers a physical and physiological advantage over women."

3/7/2014 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Michelle Rodriguez and Cara Delevingne spiced things up last night ... making a hot man sandwich by twerking and grinding all over a dude in London.
M-Rod and Cara hit up Chinawhite nightclub after Beyonce's concert, and took over the dance floor with two of Bey's male dancers -- but the highlight was a menage a trois.
Because sometimes life is awesome ... the ladies ended up straddling one of the guys, and let's just say ... his legs are now very familiar with their crotches.
Stop reading. Start watching.
Sued By Transgender Athlete
You Wont' Let Me Compete With Women!
3/6/2014 12:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
A transgender woman is going to war with CrossFit -- claiming the fitness titans refused to let her compete in the women's division at the upcoming CrossFit Games because she was born with a penis ... TMZ Sports has learned.
Chloie Jonnson has filed a $2.5 MILLION lawsuit against CF -- claiming she underwent sex reassignment surgery in 2006 and is legally recognized as a woman by the State of California.
But when Chloie -- 5'4", 151 lbs -- asked the powers that be about competing in the Games with the ladies, she was shot down hard.
In fact, TMZ Sports obtained a letter from CrossFit to Chloie in which the CF pulled no punches -- "We have simply ruled that based upon [Chloie] being born as a male, she will need to compete in the Men's Division."
CF argues ... "The fundamental, ineluctable fact is that a male competitor who has a sex reassignment procedure still has a genetic makeup that confers a physical and physiological advantage over women."
But in the letter, CF gets aggressive -- saying, "Our decision has nothing to do with 'ignorance' or being bigots -- it has to do with a very real understanding of the human genome, of fundamental biology, that you are either intentionally ignoring or missed in high school."
Chloie says CF is full of crap -- claiming the company is violating her civil rights by not letting her compete as a woman ... and she wants at least $2.5 million to make things right.
For its part, CrossFit says transgendered athletes will be "welcomed with open arms in this community, but what we will not waver from is our commitment to ensure the fairness of the competition."
Gay Bar War
Over Shrine Portrait
3/6/2014 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Elizabeth Taylor is causing strife in the gay world 3 years after her death ... a portrait of the late icon is allegedly being held HOSTAGE by a famous gay club, and a lawsuit is brewing.
Jesse Davis -- who worked as a VIP manager for The Abbey in West Hollywood for years -- tells TMZ, ET personally gifted the painting to him in 2009 ... and he thought The Abbey would be the perfect place to display it.
Jesse says the painting quickly became a fixture in the club -- with tourists flocking there for a glimpse -- but when he left in 2011 ... the club would not release the portrait.
The painting hangs on The Abbey's wall to this day, and Jesse's patience has worn out ... either the Abbey returns it or it will be on the receiving end of a lawsuit.
No Retaliation For 50 Cent Diss
He Doesn't Deserve A Response
3/4/2014 1:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
50 Cent may have been hoping to start a blood feud when he publicly insinuated Rick Ross and Diddy were gay lovers ... but sources close to Ross tell us there will be NO reprisals.
Sources tell us Ross won't retaliate for one simple reason -- he doesn't give a crap about 50 Cent or anything he says -- he thinks 50 is IRRELEVANT.
50 briefly posted a pic on Instagram Sunday showing Ross leaning in close to Diddy as if they're about to kiss ... with a caption that said, 'something ain't right' -- with the clear implication the rappers are gay.
We're told Rick plans to let it slide ... he wants to focus on making hit records ... and not on a childish beef with an old enemy.
THAT'S NOT MY PENIS
In Alleged Naked Selfie
3/3/2014 12:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Sorry ladies ... and gents ... the rumored Michael Sam naked selfie just ain't him ... so says Michael's agent.
The photo has been exploding online -- with multiple websites saying the shot of a naked buff dude (which reportedly surfaced on the Grindr app) with his face covered by an iPad is the NFL draft prospect.
But Sam's agent Cameron Weiss tells TMZ Sports simply ... "The picture is not Mike."
Weiss adds, "It could be anyone. There's no face."
Cameron says the REAL Michael Sam is focused on the NFL Draft -- saying, "Michael has a few weeks to fine tune some things before his Pro Day. He'll be ready."
Retreats After Suggesting
Diddy & Rick Ross Are Gay Lovers
3/3/2014 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
50 Cent raised the stakes in his beef with 3 rap heavyweights -- publicly insinuating Diddy, Rick Ross and former record exec Steve Stoute are gay together ... but he backed down minutes later.
The shots were fired Sunday -- Fiddy posted the 2 pics on Instagram, one showing a pink-shirted Stoute embracing a pink-shirted Diddy. The other shows Diddy and Rick Ross from an angle that makes it look like they're kissing.
Underneath, 50 wrote the caption, "I ain't saying nothing, but something ain't right. Lmao." He yanked the pics down a short time later.
The photos were the latest in 50's ongoing feuds with the rap titans -- Stoute recently appeared in a VH1 documentary about hip hop, in which he called 50 a has-been. 50's been feuding with Rick Ross and Diddy for years.
As for why he pulled the post ... 50 probably thought twice about starting a nuclear war.
I'm Just Like That Gay Black Football Player
2/27/2014 11:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Paula Deen has an odd way of proving she's not a racist -- she just dropped a metaphor ... comparing her n-word scandal to "that black football player who recently came out" ... aka NFL prospect Michael Sam.
Deen says she and Sam are in a similar struggle for acceptance ... because she feels like "embattled" or "disgraced" will always follow her name.
She told People magazine ... Sam wants to be known as a football player, not a gay football player -- and to drive home her point, she added, "I know exactly what he's saying."
Critics have been ripping Paula with comments like, "Maybe Michael Sam could compare himself to "that white, fat, redneck TV chef who used the n-word."
So we gotta ask ...
There Were Gays
On Every NFL Team I Played For
2/27/2014 6:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
There was AT LEAST one gay player on every single NFL team Deion Sanders played on during his career ... so says Prime Time himself.
Deion was on the "Arsenio Hall" show last night when the topic turned to Michael Sam -- the first openly gay NFL prospect.
"He's not the first gay guy in the NFL," Sanders said ... "He's the first one to come out."
"Every team I played on ... I think I played on 5 different teams ... there was someone gay in the locker room."
Deion says he and his teammates always knew who the gay players were and only judged that person based on football ability.
Sanders -- a deeply religious guy -- says he doesn't "condone nor condemn" homosexuality ... but says, "We just gotta give love."
