Why is Steve Guttenberg Naked in New Yorks Central Park?




People do the strangest things…..

Here is a video  of Police Academy Star Steve Guttenberg  running in  New York Citys  Central Park . Sounds pretty boring, right? Usually, we would agree, but he runs in the park PANTLESS, nearly every day!

 Steve Guttenberg does not have any pants on. There is no frontal exposure, due to laws around You Tube, however was on The Howard Stern Show in August and bragged that he was especially well endowed and that it was a great source of confidence.

When questioned about being pantless in the park, he really offers no explanation. He just says he is getting ready for a new thriller movie project!

Since he does this nearly every day, why hasn’t he been ticketed???


Watch Steve Guttenberg run half naked now!

The Secret Life? of Siegfried & Roy – How The Tiger Kings Tamed Las Vegas


 

It’s here! The so-called  “scandalous book” that has been talked about for 6 months.


            The Secret Life of Siegfried and Roy: How the Tiger Kings Tamed Las Vegas

I read the book over last weekend. As some of you may know, I worked for S & R  for about 7 years, right up until his accident.  I have  the utmost respect for them. They are inspiring and it was an honor to work with them and for them!

Everyone has a personal, private life. Some things they may not want shared with others. VERY FEW people live the life of  an “open book.” Especially gay people. Some fear telling their families and/or friends that they are gay. Everyone has  “secrets” or things they may not be proud of, that they keep private. So what? A lot of gay people in the media’s eye choose to stay in the closet. Look at Liberace! ( a close friend to Siegfried & Roy). He denied he was gay till the end, even on his death bed withering away from AIDS.  Is it right? Is it wrong? Who are we to judge. I believe it is up to each individual to decide when to come out. It’s sad though to watch people live their lives for someone else. I don’t understand it. Eventually, all secrets come out.


The Secret Life of Siegfried and Roy reveals the touching,  little-known story of how two youngsters founded a friendship, a franchise, and a tempestuous on-and-off love affair that would last a lifetime. We all knew they were gay. DAH! Look at those cod pieces and costumes! The book reveals their depth of their romance. Their disagreements and fights. Their sexual desires. Their trust and love.


     

Like most celebrities and very public people, they work very hard to control their image and public perception.  In the weeks and months that followed the accident, more coverage was given to Siegfried & Roy than they had ever seen in whole career. In the spotlight as never before, Roy’s mauling triggered the press’ relentless investigation into the secret world of these Las Vegas icons. For the first time ever, author Louis Mydlach, a longtime friend––at Roy’s side throughout his traumatic recovery––describes in detail the agonies of rehabilitating the partially paralyzed performer.  –  Roy was undergoing strenuous rehabilitation. He wanted to present a stiff upper lip to his adoring fans. People hide things because they are afraid of what others may think. Being a gay man myself, I learned at an early age that is too short to lie! Just be yourself. And if someone will not accept you for who you are, do you really want them in your life?

Siegfried & Roy dazzled audiences’ eyes for decades as they masterfully hid a lifetime of secrets. Key players in the duo’s inner circle––Louis Mydlach, his security chief father Jim Mydlach, and show consultant Jimmy Lavery––finally unravel the untold story: The life of Siegfried & Roy was their ultimate illusion.

Is the book scandalous? Not really. I would not call it scandalous. It gives the reader an inside look into  two very private lives of two great men who happened to be gay and involved for numerous years in an on-again  off-again love relationship. I did find some of the language in the book a little bit of a slap in the face to gay people. But we have to remember, this book was probably written by four straight people and I think sometimes they are titillated talking about gay sexual issues, and don’t handle it in the same manner as a gay person might. There is talk about S&R’s like for younger men, video booths and glory holes. But so what? What gay person over 50 hasn’t been there, done that or thought about it?

The book exposes what happened behind closed  doors. It is personal, intimate and the side of them we never got to see. THEY ARE HUMAN. They fight. They cry. They have emotions. They are just like you and me. It’s the private life we never got to see or read about because they protected their privacy. Unlike Britney!

They are still amazing men who accomplished so many things and changed the face of magic and the face of Las Vegas. Reading the book will not change your feelings about them, but you will probably appreciate them more, by seeing this human side of them. 


Sidenote –  It is rumoured Siegfried & Roy are currently shopping around their own memoirs to publishers.

NEWS FLASH – SIEGFRIED AND ROY ARE GAY!

after he was mauled. 

What next? They’re going to tell us Liberace was gay?

Seriously though, it’s not as though it was a big secret, really. Siegfried avoided answering the question in a 1999 Vanity Fair interview, and here in Vegas the pair have never had any presence in the gay community outside of buying ads in the program book of a major AIDS fund-raising show. Yet  MGM Mirage spokesman Alan Feldman said the night of the tiger attack, he was frank: “It’s well-known that they were lovers at one time,” shrugged Feldman, whose company owns the Mirage Hotel and Casino, “I don’t think anybody is hiding that.” Similarly, that 1999 Vanity Fair article–headlined, by the way, “Married, With Tigers” included a quote from the duo’s pal Shirley MacLaine that acknowledged their past romantic involvement. And in Siegfried’s first solo interview, with CNN’s Larry King five days after the mauling, Siegfried himself confirmed with considerable emotion that his connection to Roy “is a relationship second to none” in his life.



It will be nice to actually hear it from THEM. We’ve all known it, but it’s nice they’re going to admit and discuss it. I’m also eager to hear the story of Roy’s stroke and recovery. It’s been WAY too long since their last book. I had the pleasure of working for them for about 7 years, as a freelance writer. They never once discussed their private lives in front of me, so I have nothing revealing to share. They were very wonderful  to work for and it was an honor for me to work with such celebrity royalty!

WILL GEORGE CLOONEY & BRAD PITT SAVE A GAY BAR?

/images/39531-36457/0601_brad_clooney_saveboom.jpg”>



A former clubhouse for semi-closeted actors like Rock Hudson, this as an example of “heterosexualization,” noting “once-blighted neighborhoods that were settled by gays–often
because they felt unwelcome elsewhere–now are so gentrified, in many cases, that younger
people can’t afford them.”


Laguna Beach has no shortage of hotel space, but the Boom is a historical treasure.
Housed inside the city’s second-oldest hotel, it is the oldest gay bar in the western United States and an anchor of Laguna’s gay community. If the Boom were demolished, an important local institution would be
lost forever.

Will the lifelong bachelor and Mr. Angelina Jolie step up to the plate? Boys, it’s the least you
can do for Pride Month. But the bar’s lease is up in September, so you have to act fast! Give
us something to really celebrate and you’ll be our hero’s for life!
