“BEHIND THE CANDELABRA” DOCUMENTS THE STORY OF SCOTT THORSON PULLING LIBERACE OUT OF THE CLOSET

It makes sense that the Liberace biography “Behind the Candelabra” would land at HBO where they did such a good job with the Jack Kevorkian story. Michael Douglas is still set to play Liberace and Matt Damon is cast as his boyfriend Scott Thorson. (The script is based on Thorson’s book “My Life with Liberace.”) Liberace fell for 17 year old Scott in 1976, and they lived together for five years until drugs and cheating broke them up. Scott Thorson shocked the world in 1982 when he sued Liberace for palimony and revealed all the details of their gay relationship, including the fact that Liberace paid to have Scott get plastic surgery to look more like him! Liberace was devastated. He was adored as a performer but he was forced to lead two lives because he was always in the closet- it’s a fascinating story. (Photos above show Scott and Liberace at the height of their romance)

    Hello is really Strom right? Casonia is

    “Casonia freaked Walt out, Mel pissed him off and Hello hurt his feelings.”

    If Casonia isn’t Reta, then I bet the same thing happened to her.

    Yeah, Casonia was pretty much the last straw for REta too as she had remarked just before she split. Casonia is incarcerated in Seattle.
    Hello can be really fucking nasty at times and go for the soft spot but Strom is just Strom.

    Patrick,

    Casonia was a prison residence in Seattle? Seriously? Wow. How did you find out? She will probably be back.

    Reading between the lines.
    She only posted during banking hours. Never on weekends. She mentioned she wouldn’t be able to post once because the library was going to be closed for reno’s for a week. She indicated she was from Seattle.
    Janet exorcised her with much difficulty.

    Good riddins! Long crazy rants add nothing to threads and eventually run away JCs advertisors.

    Maybe Jon Schmidt will play the farewell and become as famous as Libarace for his musical talent. He is a Mormon and that might turn off the gays but talent is unquestioned:

    I grew up with the Liberace kids. In Van Nuys,Cali.Rudy was an ass. Lester was sweet.Ina was a bit off.And baby harry was just a baby.There was zero parenting going on as the mom was at work.I felt kind of sorry for them.Their uncle was never there.Father died as a alcoholic.Shame really for the kids.Rudy had a best friend named Tom Walters,he was raping his little sister daily.And I now wonder if he ever hurt Ina too.Tom killed himself at 18.I still wonder about his sister and her life. Tragic family all the way around.Ner do wells.As they say.Pitiful for sure.
