One of the more stunning aspects of Jason Collins’ announcement that he is gay is that he dated women and was engaged to be married for years. His ex-fiancee, Carolyn Moos, said on Tuesday that she never suspected he was gay. The two were together for eight years before Collins called off their wedding in 2009. Even though the announcement likely stunned Moos, she says it helped clear up a lot for her. “The biggest thing is not being aware of it or having something that is a little unexpected. It actually provided a lot of explanation for something that provided,” Moos told “Amani & Eytan” on NBC Sports Radio during the week. Moos says Collins will be in her life forever and that she wants him to be happy because he is “an amazing person.” “To hear that from him probably alleviated a portion of my confusion and my pain in 2009,” Moos told hosts Amani Toomer and Eytan Shander. Moos says Collins was really good at pretending to be straight and projecting that image. She’s not mad at him for hiding something because she understands that he was struggling to understand himself. Moos says the whole revelation has been difficult. “This is probably the most challenging thing that I’ve ever gone through,” Moos admits. “He’s a great person and he deserves to be happy as does any wonderful human being.” Though the confusion in her personal life has been difficult, Moos says she is still looking to rewrite her “life script” and get married and have a family. Moos is a certified personal trainer who also teaches yoga and is experienced with nutrition. You can learn more about her and her business at her website.
