MR CONFIDENTIAL: TABLOID GOSSIP RULES!

January%201957A.jpg
Here’s the perfect Christmas gift for anyone who loves gossip or Hollywood history: MR. CONFIDENTIAL . It’s a book about the man behind the famous 50’s scandal magazine and it’s written by my friend Sam Bernstein. Robert Harrison, the publisher behind Confidential, adored homosexual exposes and gleefully wrote about those “lavender lads” – Liberace being “mad about the boy” and Tab Hunter‘s “gay pajama party.” He even outed Van Johnson by declaring his conversion to heterosexuality. The “baritone babes” Lizabeth Scott and Marlene Dietrich got their share of stories too. I asked Sam to tell me about a scoop that Confidential COULDN’T print and he recalled one about Elvis. Back in 1957. A PR guy claimed that Elvis had an ongoing affair with another famous teen idol. (Tab? Troy? Fabian? Bobby?) Supposedly they got together for “man-play” – wrestling and beyond. Confidential couldn’t substantiate the story and didn’t print it. WE don’t think it was true either. In Tab Hunter‘s bio he mentioned that he was miffed when Elvis stole his “beard” Natalie Wood away from him.

    This bad boy seems to have calmed down since he got serious about his former pornstar girlfriend and he has his friends wondering WHY. What’s so special about HER? We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy. It’s a family affair – the girlfriend watches while the bad boy fiddles around with the guys!
