Elvisroad.jpg Cybil Shepherd talks to Time Out: New York about her one-time fling with Elvis Presley and says that while the King was a fan of fat-laden foods, he couldn’t stomach the sight of man-on-man action: “[We] ate chicken-fried steak, deep-fried peanut-butter-and-mayonnaise sandwiches. He had screenings every Wednesday night at this huge movie theater—private screenings with 50 of his closest friends. One of the movies we saw was Sunday Bloody Sunday. They started running the picture, and there was a scene between two gay men. Elvis said, ‘Ew, gross. Turn off the movie!'”

road.jpg Scott Schweickert, charged with conspiracy and assisting in a drug-facilitated crime of violence, goes on trial today in U.S. circuit court for activities surrounding the drugging and murder of gay men in the Tampa area: “It has been three years since a passer-by spotted a body wrapped in a sheet in the back of a Jeep Cherokee parked in a remote area of a Town ‘N Country apartment complex. The gruesome discovery of Michael Wachholtz’s body, and the revelation that Jason Galehouse, another young gay man, had vanished near the same time, touched off one of the most sensational murder investigations in recent memory.”

    there’s 100 billion well-spent…
    afterall, america’s kids are all well-fed with superior educations, homelessness is a thing of the past, the US health system rocks, and new orleans is fabulous
    …all for another freedom bomb.

    Elvis’ been dead for decades, it’s amazing he continues to speak (and release albums) to keep his star alive.

    Let’s see, Rock Hudson and Liberace in 1971 both weren’t out. In fact Rock Hudson had “married” his secretary who adamantly insisted that Rock wasn’t gay (to her death bed). So, Cybil (bless her heart) bases his sexual orientation on one reaction to a movie? I said the same thing to my straight boyhood friend after giving him a blowjob. Cybil, dear, methinks someone doth protest waaaayyy toooo much! (hands on hips)

    I feel so sorry for Cybil Shepherd.

    I mean she’s had a multi media career for many years yet all people want to talk to her about is a relationship she had with a man who died nearly 30 years ago. So sad.

    Also, woodroad34 please go into more detail about this blowjob with a boyhood friend please

    Oh and I’m not really interested in anything Ricky Martin does unless it’s him coming out

    “Ew, turn it off” is usually what I say about Elvis’ music. So I guess it all balances out.

    I just wanted to say… Jason was one of those funny, optimistic, genuinely sweet guys. You couldn’t wish what happened to him on anyone, but in his case…well, it’s just unbearable.
