Oh, gurrrrl. Wait. Let me re-phrase that. Oh, “gurrrl without an edit-button in her head or mouth”.
Have you heard about this yet? One of my favorite bi-polar writer/actresses, Carrie Fisher has been questions by The Advocate about her 2009 interview with OUT Magazine wherein she says something rather bold for a celebrity ABOUT another celebrity, namely John Travolta.
via The Advocate:
The Advocate: In the September 2009 issue of Out, you participated in its monthly Can I Be Blunt? column by sharing 10 things that gay men should know about straight women. One of those things was, “We don’t really care that John Travolta is gay.” I know you and Travolta go way back, so let’s get really blunt here: Does his legal team have any business demanding Gawker remove a recent post suggesting that he’s given blow jobs?
Carrie Fisher: Wow! I mean, my feeling about John has always been that we know and we don’t care. Look, I’m sorry that he’s uncomfortable with it, and that’s all I can say. It only draws more attention to it when you make that kind of legal fuss. Just leave it be.
Yikes. I don’t expect for Carrie to back-pedal on this statement. If John is indeed gay, I can only hope that one day he can embrace his sexuality. Honestly. I think the only people who might care about a public revelation would be The Church of Scientology.
I do hope that Carrie isn’t being followed 24/7/360 by the “sinister black SUVs“, if you know’msayin’. Creeeep. EEEE.
Oh! Carrie’s HBO documentary-stage show Wishful Drinking is airing tomorrow night (December 12th). I plan on DVRing it and then watching it on a loop.
Say what you will about The National Enquirer, the grocery-store “rag” was nominated for a GD PULITZER PRIZE. Remember the John Edwards/Mistress/Baby story they broke? Yeah. It all turned out to be 100% true–and then some.
So now some cretin with an axe to grind (that sounds dirty) has written a book about a bunch of Hollywood dudes who love to cruise the bath houses, have circle jerks and anonymous sex. Ummm. First of all? What else is new? And is this actually shocking? Not to me, it isn’t.
Here’s the official press release for the book, You’ll Never Spa in This Town Again, that The Enquirer references.
“The Official Press Release:
You’ll Never Spa In This Town Again
A shocking tell-all tale about who’s gay and who’s not
Who’s packin’ and who’s lackin’
In the Secret Celebrity Hollywood spa culture
Hollywood, CA, FALL 2010 – Find out what John Travolta, John Amos, John Cusack, Jeremy Piven, Pauly Shore, George Michael, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Billy Zane, Andy Dick, Paul Giammatti and more have in common — and it’s not awards!
Robert Randolph details, in his new book, YOU’LL NEVER SPA IN THIS TOWN AGAIN, juicy tales of Hollywood’s gay spa subculture, taken advantage of by those in the closet and out! In amazing detail, backed up by a polygraph test that begins the book, he tells all about what goes on in the local spa, most shockingly John Travolta, who has been known to go around the local spas, propositioning everyone in sight, and even on the most shocking day of all, January 30, 2007, the author witnessed Travolta with his son, Jett, and his nanny, Jeff Kathrine, with him at the Century Spa in Los Angeles while he was up to his usual tricks. We have the photos to prove it! And that was only one of hundreds of shocking incidents witnessed by the Author.
John Travolta’s secret life makes Tiger Woods look like a Boy Scout!
“This is a story about a guy who was a member of one of Los Angeles’s most elite men’s spa – City Spa – for over 15 years. The Author was brutally beaten and left for dead on the footsteps of City Spa, one of the favorite secret LA gay spa hangouts. This spa was home away from home to many of the world’s most famous movie and television stars.My beloved spa had slammed their doors on me and had subjected me to life-threatening situations without so much as a “we’re sorry” or anything.
I think more than the beating and the brain damage the way City Spa treated me hurt the most. It would be years of retraining my brain before I would get the idea for You’ll Never Spa In This Town Again. I figure if that’s how they treat me, I’ll treat them the same. I’ll share every dirty secret I learned in the 15 years I was a member there. Every thing all the masseurs would share with me all the shocking stuff only an insider could see and I saw it all. Read about how Robert Randolph went from being a starry-eyed fan of John Travolta to a disgusted seer of many perverted acts and extremely bad behavior, coupled with Travolta’s ignorance and mistreatment of his autistic, now deceased son Jett. Vladimir, John Travolta’s masseur of 25 years, shares with the author what he thinks really happened the night Jett Travolta died.”
For the gay version of “You’ll Never Eat Lunch In This Town Again”, contact “Robert Randolph” or visit www.youllneverspainthistownagain.com. The book was set to be released January 15, 2009, but due to the untimely passing of Jett Travolta just days earlier, out of respect to the family, the author postponed the release for one year. It will be released in the Fall of 2010 online at my web site and in local bookstores.”
About the Author: Robert Randolph was born and raised in Inglewood, California. A product of a studio family, he thought it was normal to grow up and be around movie stars in L.A. or at my local spas. What’s not normal is to do it and then write a book about it. I’m breaking the code of ethics. I’m writing about the stars that have shared deep secrets with me. I am no longer in the circle, but I am confident that after you read my story, you’ll understand my reasoning and motivation behind the book, “You’ll Never Spa In This Town Again.”
So. How do we feel about this book? It’s extremely sordid and bitter in tone, I can tell you that. None if the “reveals” are much of a shock, though. Does anyone really care who’s gay and who isn’t anymore? Apparently, they do.
“This aging, foreign born former A list movie and television actor has always seemed to be pretty straight. I mean the guy has been married. Well, those perceptions might be changing because he was spotted in a dressing room groping and fondling this married, foreign born, C list movie and television actor. He is probably B list or even A list overseas.”
