Look Who's Talking!: John Travolta's Ex Spills On Their Affair Comments (0)

John-Travolta-gay-sex-National-Enquirer

Speedo-John-TravoltaDoug Gotterba, who sued for the right to write about his long relationship with John Travolta, is teasing his story in National Enquirer (August 18, 2014).

He tells NE that they met in February of 1981 when Gotterba was interviewed to be Travolta's pilot, then offered a massage (gee, that sounds familiar) that turned into more.

According to Gotterba, Travolta was into threesomes and porn and wanted to make a sex tape, which Gotterba refused. (As hot as I was for Travolta in the '80s, I wouldn't have wanted to be seen naked next to that stud at his peak either!)

Remember the iconic photo of Travolta dancing with Princess Diana? Yeah, Gotterba had sex with him that night, too.

Gotterba eventually left John when the sexual demands became incessant (a good problem to have, sounds very Divorce Court). When the two ran into each other in 1991, Gotterba recalls asking Travolta point-blank if he still liked men or if his marriage to Kelly Preston had sealed the deal for heterosexuality. Travolta allegedly replied:

“Well, Doug, I still prefer men!”

And P.S.: Before anyone moans about digging into Travolta's private life, the same issue of NE contains personal details of the lives of: Drew Barrymore, Richard Belzer, Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux, Courteney Cox & Johnny McDaid, Bruce Jenner, Paul McCartney, Bill Clinton, Adam Levine, Ted Danson, Justin Timberlake, Kathie Lee Gifford, Sam Ronson, Ben Affleck, Lindsay Lohan, Bar Refaeli, Sean Connery, Paris Hilton, Donald Trump, Rosie O'Donnell, Justin Bieber, Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr, Selena Gomez, Tori Spelling, Robert Wagner, a slew of dead celebs from Marilyn Monroe to David Carradine, Nicole Murphy & Michael Strahan, Amanda Knox, Eileen Davidson, Burt Reynolds, Loni Anderson, Clint Eastwood, Pamela Anderson, Rick Salomon, Kendra Wilkinson & Hank Baskett, Warren Beatty, Madonna, Joan Collins, Britt Ekland, Goldie Hawn, Michelle Phillips, Leslie Caron, Diane Keaton, Diane Sawyer, Diana Ross, Kate Jackson, Carly Simon, Mamie Van Doren, Elle Macpherson, Raquel Welch, Julie Christie, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta Jones, Shirley MacLaine, Cate Blanchett, Anna Camp, Vera Farmiga, Thandie Newton and more.

Tom Cruise Will Probably Cancel His ENQUIRER Subscription...Happy? Comments (0)

Tom-Cruise-National-Enquirer-gay

Via National Enquirer (July 28, 2014): The great thing about Tom Cruise is that he totally doesn't mind speculation that he's a closet case, so National Enquirer should get away with this week's cover scot-free.

Paul-Lynde-RogerBut more seriously, this is all based on a NOVEL! Not a work of non-fiction. Although the book is a roman a clef (a term the tabloid puts in quotes and defines for its readers, BTW), The Actress by Amy Sohn is a work of fiction by a woman who never met Cruise.

Great publicity for Ms. Sohn, and probably dumb luck at that.

NE's piece has a dated feel regarding gay matters, including saying these are “nightmare rumors” and “sex slurs” and detailing his anguish at being portrayed as someone “leading a closeted homosexual life.”

No-Holds-Bar Interview: Writer Claims He Was Philip Seymour Hoffman's Lover Comments (0)

David-Bar-Katz

UPDATE: Via a third party, Katz is denying he ever did an NE interview and is branding their story a "vulgar and disgusting lie." Legal action is promised. Will be fascinating to see if NE has any proof of the quotes or of the true nature of the relationship. NE isn't stupid; would it really just make up the entire thing and expect to get away with it? I'll say it again: Bizarre.

There's Nothing She Won't Try: Penny Marshall Coming Out As A Lesbian? Comments (0)

Penny-Marshall

According to the National Enquirer, Penny Marshall is set to come out of the closet as a lesbian...and so is her "longtime girlfriend" Carrie Fisher. There wasn't a hint of this in her recent memoir, but what fun news!

It's also interesting to note that Carrie Fisher was once married to a man who later came out as gay, and that her mom is Debbie Reynolds, who has long been referred to as a closeted lesbian. (Fisher has said of her mom that she "isn't gay, she's just really bad at being heterosexual.")

Boy Culture Turns 8: My 100 Favorite Posts! Comments (0)

BoyCultureBlogYou need a little (Boy) Culture!

StripperIt blows my mind to realize that Boy Culture is now eight years old. I can still remember the joy I felt when I figured out how to post, how to upload an image and how to embed a video. I remember every time a post blew up, bringing in hits and new viewers. I remember the longtime commenters, the trolls, the spam and the never-ending (and validating!) pitches and free tickets and photographers' snaps of half- or all-naked male models. 

RuPaul-Drag-RaceShooting for my blog has never been a drag.

Cone-boyI've used Boy Culture to express myself, to help express others and to connect to people internationally.

I've also used it to show off my humor (both high and low), to flaunt my obsessions, to reality-test my sexual diversions and perversions, to laud the art I love, to lash out against the enemies of gay people and to broadcast my admiration for Madonna.

I want to thank you all for having read this blog over the years. It's a very hard thing to maintain, and it will not be maintained forever. But each time I get some positive (or even just meaningful) feedback, each time my posts are shared on social media, each time something I've written elicits a response, it keeps me going that much longer.

Madonna-stepmother-Joan-MDNAMadonna's stepmother was not impressed.

Thank you. Please enjoy my 100 favorite posts, please let me know if you're reading any old ones for the first time and are liking them and, most of all, please share this entire post far and wide to help get my work out there.

Britney-Spears-gay

National Enquirer (November 25, 2013) breaks news that Britney Spears is secretly opposed to gay marriage because...the Bible. I'm not saying their story is 100% true—for one thing, though she has never said she's in favor of gay marriage, she replied to a tweet about it four and a half years ago to say people should be able to do whatever they like—but the fact that she thinks of nutbag Max Lucado as her favorite writer is pretty damning anyway.
