Nobody would have expected a childhood clown, ‘Fizbo’ to become a celebrated actress with two Emmy Awards. But Eric Stonestreet is a man born to defy the odds. His portrayal of the character is so realistic that his gay portrayal of Cameron in TV series “Modern Family” made people think that he is gay, but in real life, he is straight and has multiple relationships with beautiful ladies.
Multiple Dating Relationships but Not Married!
The star, who portrays a gay character in comedy series “Modern Family,” has straight sexual orientation. Though his excellent portrayal of gay character sometimes confuses people, his multiple relationships with beautiful ladies might be just enough to prove his preference.
In an interview with Oprah.com, he revealed that he is not gay and said,
“I say I'm 'openly straight, I never thought this would be the character that people would know me for, but it's just an honor to play him.”
Similarly, the second proof of his sexual orientation is his relationships. Back in 2012, he broke up with his long-time girlfriend, Katherine Tokarz. They dated exclusively for years in 2000’s before calling it quits in early 2012. The news of break-up was reported by E! News on 18th September 2012 after the engagement of Katherine.

Even when he was freshly back of a break-up, he didn’t waste any time to move on. On 23rd September 2012, the Daily mail reported that Eric was dating Charlize Theron and also mentioned that the couple was in the happy state back then. But after dating for quite the while, the couple split without much hype.
Then again in 2015, he was in the news with his explicit romance but with another woman. After dating several other men in the past, Bethenny finally looked to be the wife of Eric Stonestreet in July of 2015. But this relationship also ended without any conclusions.
