Tila Tequila: California lifted its gay-marriage ban "because of me"
By Christopher Rocchio, 06/12/2008
Tila Tequila thinks she deserves some credit for California lifting its ban on same-sex marriages.
"It is because of me -- I definitely think [A Shot of Love with Tila Tequila] has helped the movement," Tequila toldUs Weekly on Wednesday.
A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila -- an MTV reality dating series that follows the bisexual model as she whittles down a group of suitors that consists of both straight men and gay women -- first premiered last fall and is currently in the midst of its second season.
The California Supreme Court dropped its ban on same-sex marriages in May.
"Before [A Shot of Love] came out, everyone was still a little apprehensive about [same sex relationships]," Tequila told Us. "Then they realized, 'Wow, everyone is really into this stuff, and it is fine.' The next thing you know, [gay marriage] is legal."
Since she can now legally wed a woman if she so chooses, Tequila said she does plan on eventually getting hitched -- but wouldn't reveal if it was to a guy or girl.
"I definitely want to. Definitely," she told Us when asked if she wants to wed.
Tequila is currently writing a "self-help" book and plans to travel to Africa this summer.
"I think maybe I will fall in love in Africa," she told Us.
