To answer your first question – no he was not gay.
His last home is located at 7869 Bermuda Dunes Avenue in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Mr. Leach generally took the many parodies of him and his show in stride. Among the more memorable Leach impersonations in the 1980s and ’90s was Dana Carvey’s on “Saturday Night Live.” Last year, when Mr. Carvey and Jon Lovitz performed together in Las Vegas, Mr. Leach had a chance to review Mr. Carvey’s version of him. “If I really do sound like Dana’s brilliant impression — ‘I’m Robin Leach, I’m yelling, and I don’t know why!” — then I deserve the ridicule,” Mr. Leach wrote in The Review-Journal, echoing a line from Mr. Carvey’s bit. “Fortunately, that’s only behind a mic and not in everyday life!” In an interview Dana Carvey spoke kindly of Mr. Leach: “Robin Leach thankfully loved my impression of him”. “Over the years he would catch my act in Vegas, and I always made a point to do him directly to him. He would laugh uproariously and then heckle me in his distinctive booming voice: ‘If you’re gonna do me I should get paid!’ He was fun to talk to — incredibly charming and smart.”
