Ex-Partner Esera Tavai Tuaolo’s Relationship with Kressley

In March 2016, the 51-year-old fashion designer revealed details about his personal life when he revealed that he had previously been in a relationship with Esera Tavai Tuaolo, an American professional football player.

Tavai, sometimes known as Mr. Aloha, was a ten-year defensive tackle in the National Football League (NFL) who came out about his sexuality in 2002 after retiring from the league.

In an interview with Bravo TV, Kressley admitted that dating a football player was “very sexy.” He went on to say that the two had a few dates and that it wasn’t a long relationship, but that he wouldn’t mind marrying him.

He didn’t say why they broke up, but given that they are still friends, it’s safe to believe they did so amicably.

He is currently unattached

Kressley hasn’t been romantically engaged with anyone since his separation with Esera, and he’s been busy covering everything from his shows to prospective projects.

As a result, according to The Sun, the fashionista is currently single — and if he marries or finds a boyfriend, he won’t be shy about announcing it to the world.

Moment of Kressley’s Coming Out as Gay

Despite the fact that Kressley has always been outspoken about his sexuality, his parents were the last people he told about it.

He waited until just days before the launch of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy in 2003 to tell his parents.

He announced the show’s title while driving with his mum. His mother was unconcerned about it, assuming he wasn’t “the straight guy.”

His family had already expected it, so there was no need for a news flash at his house.

On Jungle Radio, Kressley informed writer Steve Price about the incident, stating, “When I told them I was starting a new show, they asked, “What’s it called?” ‘It hasn’t been given a name yet; it’s the nameless makeover program,’ I say.”

Following that, he stated:

“I said, “The show that I’m doing is called Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”. She said, “Let me guess, you’re not the straight guy? Yeah. We kind of knew”. It was not a big news flash at my house.”

From Pennsylvania to Renowned Fashionista: Kressley’s Biography

Kressley was born on November 11, 1969, in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and grew up alongside his sister Diana Kressley-Billig.

He graduated from Northwestern Lehigh High School in 1987 and Gettysburg College in 1991 with a bachelor’s degree.

From 1994 through 2002, the designer worked with Ralph Lauren as an independent stylist. When Queer Eye debuted on the Bravo Cable Television Network in 2003, he got a lot of attention as the “fashion guru.”
In 2007, Kressley presented the US TV series How to Look Good Naked, with the first episode earning the largest amount of viewers (1.6 million) in the franchise’s history.

In the same year, he starred on the reality show Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants as a judge. The show was a beauty pageant in which a mother-daughter combo competed against another duo.

After ten years, Kressley reunited with his Queer Eye co-star and buddy Thom Filicia for Bravo TV’s Get a Room in October 2018. Filicia mentored Kressley in the interior design business on the show.

Kressley’s Salary and Net Worth

Over the course of his illustrious career, Kressley has appeared in a number of television programs, each of which paid him a respectable wage, if not more.

He has incorporated smart ideas in his Manhattan flat, which looks homey and majestic at the same time, as a fashion guru.

He has an estimated net worth of $8 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
