FORT MYERS, Fla. — Hands off the hair. Boston Red Sox center fielder Johnny Damon agreed to a makeover on “Queer Eye For The Straight Guy” as long as they don't cut his famous long locks. A contract for his book being issued in April requires him to keep his hair long.
Queer Eyes’ five gay makeover artists are taking on five members of the Sox for an upcoming episode. Damon, Kevin Millar, Doug Mirabelli, Tim Wakefield and Jason Varitek are taking part, after the show’s executive producer says their wives pitched the idea.
Taping began yesterday while the Red Sox go through spring training in Florida.
And it turns out the Sox may even have helped the Fab Five. Fashion adviser Carson Kressley says “They’re teaching us how to spit.”
