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.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • SCIENTOLOGY IS LOSING ANOTHER MAJOR CELEBRITY
    |


    Another one of the most famous female members of the church of Scientology is very quietly planning to extricate herself from the organization. She won’t discuss it now and perhaps never will, but she used to be a close friend of Leah Remini. It’s a brave thing for a celebrity to do, but this actress has been having doubts for awhile and Leah’s anti-Scientology series pushed her even farther. Longtime members have to adjust to losing most of their friends and many business associates (assistants, managers, accountants, nannies etc) so it takes a LOT of preparation. This will be a huge slap in the face of David Miscavige.
