Matsuken gets remarried!
The latest celebrity gossip is that Ken Matsudaira, the Gay Samurai (of course, in the old-fashioned sense of the word!) and the singer and dancer of the not-at-all camp in the slightest Matsuken Samba II (and I and the recently-released III) has got married to some relatively young bimbette Yuri Matsumoto. His previous wife, who was this year one of the faces of Shanghai Reicha, is well-known to bat for the other side (she in fact tried chatting up one of my wife's female pals many years ago when they were out together in a pub in Takarazuka) and their marriage was just a paper one.
If you've heard Matsuken wax lyrical about his Samba choreographer, the camp as a row of pink tents Majima-sensei (and I mean that in the nicest possible sense, as he's always entertaining on the box), one would form some suspicions about old Ken chan, so it'll be interesting to watch the gossip columns on this one.
