On tonight's episode of Joy Behar: Say Anything on Current TV, interior designer Nate Berkus shares his coming-out story. Appearing to talk about his new book, The Things That Matter, Berkus tells Behar that he knew he was gay from a young age, but his mother wasn't quite as aware.

"My mother didn't know," Berkus recalls. "She made me play baseball. I had no desire to do that. I said, 'Mom, I don't like direct sunlight, I don't like bugs, I don't like grass, and I'd rather be in the house playing with your fabric samples.'"

"Once I came out, I never went back," Berkus told Behar, recalling that he came out in college. "Most people come out when they are leaving for something, like Thanksgiving: Thanks for the turkey, I'm gay, see you later!"
