    hey, hey Toni. stupid is as stupid does. gotta love those oh so hip gay storylines these days – they are all the rage here in the big ole stupid heartland.

    as to “Chelsea” (is there really a more stupid name?) – does “gay or stupid” imply that gay = smart? last time I checked, gay had more to do with what a guy wanted to do with his cock. whoops – guess that’s not one of those “hip” gay storylines going out on the soaps.

    coupled with the cheesy beefcake of Jessie from Big Bro & the Nelly spread, this blog is lookin more bigmuscle as the days go by.

    I’m so over this has been. He’s played gay in a bunch of his “movies” … and let’s face it, he’s not a very good actor which is probably why his career never went anywhere.

    What a stupid question. I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt on this one. He’s not gay so she’s basically saying “you must be stupid” His not wanting to answer is rejecting her false choice question that he has to be one or the other. He’s always been comfortable playing gay, and I think bringing that clip along shows he’s good humored.

    RESURRECT, I disagree with you about Chelsea. I think she is funny, and fought hard to come up with many examples to counter her point that people with chiseled bodies like that are either gay or stupid. She’s pretty much right, and certainly close enough to make a hilarious comment.

    Actually, this is the kind of joke me and my friends make all the time. I think it’s kind of funny.

    And AS isn’t quite as stupid as he seems. He was bright enough not to touch this tar baby of a question.

  6. says

    I wonder if the same diatribes would have been hurled at a John Barrowman or any other openly gay man if the question was posed as “Would you rather be straight or stupid?” and he (they) answered much the way Sabato did. Sure, Sabato is Z-List, and sure he’s a big mook, and yes, he’s a terrible actor, but I don’t find offense at his answer.

    If the question was posed to me, would I rather be straight or stupid, I’d say stupid. I don’t want to change who I am inherently (besides, you can always learn not to be stupid).

    I mean, Chelsea (the neighborhood, not Handler. Although…) is filled with thousands of stupid – very stupid – gay men…none of whom would change their sexual identity over smarts. At least, I hope they wouldn’t.

  7. Giovanni says

    Dimwitted hasbeen? Yes. Homophobe? Probably not. It was definitely a fucked moment on his part though the question may have gotten the answer it deserved. For what it’s worth dude has lots of gay friends.

    Poor AS, Jr. has always been dumber than a box of rocks, but he sure used to be purdier than a new tractor. He has also been consistently “gay for pay” throughout his life, both in his career and in his personal behaviour. Ask Calvin Kelin, inter alia, whether AS, Jr.’s heels have ever danced the ceiling cha cha.

  9. Pavel says

    A tempest in a teapot, more likely. Antonio seems pretty comfortable with the gays… Heck, he’s been rumored to be bi for decades, and I tend to believe it. Chelsea’s question wasn’t offensive… Just probing and goofy, which is her style.

  10. jason says

    Antonio comes across as yet another homophobic liberal. You know, they’re the ones who treat us well when we’re politically useful to them. But when it comes to our male-male affections, the collective liberal response is “yuck” or “not me”. Female-female, on the other hand, gets a collective applause from them. I say “flush them”. I certainly won’t be voting for any liberal or Democrat candidate this year, primarily for this reason.

    Liberalism is a hypocritical philosophy based on male heterosexual fantasy.

  11. jason says

    Leandro,

    LOL. I can’t remember the last time I voted Republican, if at all.

    I know it irks the gay and bi male community to say what I did. But it’s true, and the truth hurts.

    Liberals are phonies, period. Their public stance is that they support gay rights. But the truth is they don’t want us gay/bi men holding hands or kissing in their clubs or in their general presence, basically. They want us out of there.

    It’s a phony acceptance based on segregation. Write these words down and never forget them.

  12. says

    Oh for Chrissake Jason… really? You’re not voting for any liberal or Democrat because they visualize male-male affection and think “yuck”? What a dumb thing to factor into an important decision. I think vaginas and hairy assholes are kinda yucky, but I’ve never made any substantive decisions based on that, and I support those who feel differently.

    Besides, what does this have to do with Antonio Sabato? Chelsea’s question was poorly phrased, causing a stumbling, incoherent answer. I don’t care if Sabato’s legs have been in the air (I’ll never stand a chance with him, so it doesn’t matter). What does matter is the fact that offending GLBT people on the public airwaves is no longer socially acceptable. That is a great thing. Longitudinally, our efforts have made changes in people’s behavior. Changing their internal thought processes shouldn’t be an issue… people can think my sex life is yucky if they want as long as I have the same rights as everyone else.

  13. back2thefuture says

    Jason, I’m amazed at how you can take a post like this–a silly question asked to an actor on a cable soap opera spin-off–and turn it into a reason for you to hop on your soap box and spout off about how you’re going to vote in the election.

    Even though I think you over-analyze and I rarely agree with you, I do admire your chutzpah. Still, most of the time you make me long for the days of the JimmyBoyo & Leland posts…

  14. rudy says

    Jason, Put down the shovel, darlin'; the hole you keep digging is already sufficiently large. Not every stupid person is a liberal, as you so eloquently demonstrate.

  15. says

    He was interviewed on Frank DeCaro’s radio show on Sirius yesterday. Frank asked him about his role in Testosterone in which his character was in a romantic relationship with a man. He talked about what a challenge it was to deal with the “homosexuality of the role.”

    He really sounded dumb and Frank had to work for the interview.

  16. Jimmyboyo says

    I lost all respect for the guy years ago during is MTV cribs bit.

    He had a fll size manaquin with a full size realistic batman outfit on it in either his bedroom or livingroom. He raved and raed about it more han any other thing in his house.

    You just can’t respect a grown man with a life size batman outfit on full display in their house.

  17. basis4insanity says

    “you just can’t respect a grown man with a life size batman outfit…in their house.”

    Unless they want you to dress up & play Robin… 😉

  18. christopher says

    Maybe he was just distracted by Chelsea Handler’s (that IS a drag name, right?) voice, given that it makes Harvey Fierstein sound like Betty Boop.

  19. Jimmyboyo says

    LOL basis4insanity

    It was years ago, but from what I remember…..he was almost drooling when talking about it. Almost like he kneeled before it each night and worshiped the mannequin dressed up in the batman outfit.

    At the end he showed off his motorcycle which had the batman symbol all over it.

    The dude has a serious batman fetish.

  20. Chad says

    He’s got issues, no doubt about it, but he’s still hot in a loser way (like someone you’d do during a drug-filled weekend and film it).

    Chelsea however is funnier than shit. She’d be a total blast to get drunk with.

  21. Bob R says

    I always thought Antonio was BBD(beautiful but dumb). And I seem to remember him as being pretty gay friendly, with a very large gay following. I never read anything alluding to him being any way homophobic, but I could be wrong. Any way, he seems like a nice enough guy to me and in my younger years I’ve been known to take home more than one BBD trick. Even a few that if you shook them you could hear the hayseeds rattle. They were always good sex and fun for the evening. But I was looking for sex, not an intellectual debate. Even now I find Antonio physically attractive and sure wouldn’t kick him out of bed. Not that I’d ever have a shot at him…

  22. Dusty says

    i love chelsea handler…anybody who watches her show or has read her books knows that she loves to just fuck with people(sometimes literally). and if people actually take her too seriously..jokes on them..and most of you commenting on here..its like a someone who is being sarcastic and or joking around has to be explained..makes me feel like most of you commenting dont have a funny bone at all..

  23. Matty says

    blah blah blah…say what you will about the man, but I’d still hit it, flip it over and hit it again. I suspect many of you wouldn’t exactly kick him out of bed either.

  24. OXA says

    I FEEL THAT IF I AM SECURE WITH MYSELF AND MY SEXUALITY, I DONT GIVE A RATS ASS WHAT ANYONE ELSE IS DOING IN THE BEDROOM AS LONG AS I DONT GET THE WET SPOT.
    WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL HERE, GAY, BI,STRAIGHT, BLACK, WHITE, ASIAN,SHORT. TALL. THIN OR FAT, WE ARE ALL HUMAN AND NEED LOVE AND AFFECTION. THE RELIGIOUS ZEALOTS BELIEVE GOD CREATED US, YET REFUSE TO ACCEPT THAT NOT ALL OF US ARE THE SAME.

  25. Themistocle says

    The problem with this inherently HOMOPHOBIC and offensive question (and the even more stupid comments about buff = stupid) is it suggests that either possibility is equally damning: If you intend to corner someone with gay/stupid it means you equate one with the other as negative qualities. Because ASjr is a nice guy and not a lawyer or a politician he wasn’t agressive enough to blast the bitch but she would deserve it. She would never dare to ask: would you rather n=be Black or stupid, Jew or stupid, and she would never dare to tell a beautiful woman: Oh you are so beautiful so you must be a lesbian or stupid – would she? On the other hand Jason, please don’t report just anything just because someone says gay.

  27. Amy says

    I think he was a great guest and handled that well. He was gracious about it and was cool about the question.. And he’s hot as hell… I think he looks good for his age. I thought it was a great interview.

  28. mike says

    Gay or straight, smart or dumb, he’s obviously doing something right…body still looks good, he’s still getting gigs, d-list or not…and he’s probably not spending his evenings posting comments online..

  29. mike says

    Okay, posted the previous comment without actually watching the clip or knowing who Chelsea even was…kuddos to Antonio…Chelsea reminded me of an ex-friend who blew her mind out on meth while thinking all the time she was a goddess…and yes, chunky girls can still stay chunky on meth…

  30. Hank says

    She thought she was being smart and edgy, but her question was actually stupid and mean. She comes across as trying to humiliate and gay-bait him.

  31. JM says

    Wow. You know what? I caught this interview by chance and I figured I’d watch because I still love those Calvin Klein ads that Antonio did and when this subject came up, I knew in the back of my head that this would be a debate with the extremists. I hoped that it wouldn’t, but that’s not the world we live in. At the end of the day, is THIS really what we’re using all of our energy on?? It’s so not that serious! I like Antonio, but since when do we take our social cues from him?? Who really cares???

  32. marvin says

    who cares? He is still a looker and I would do him in an instant. Just give the guy a break. He is working with what he’s got. He’s had more of a career that most of you guys could ever have in the business.

  33. KC says

    I remember Antonio’s “MTV Cribs” appearance (response to previous post)and he DID NOT have a life-sized Batman mannequin in his home. He had the original Batman mask from the first film a family member got him for Xmas. Everyone knows Antonio is a huge Batman fan, like millions of others in the world, why this matters I don’t know. However, I think Antonio did the right thing by not answering that question, or else you all would be dogging on him for something else. He has gay friends (who doesn’t) and I’m sure he doesn’t want to disrespect any of them. Chelsea is right by saying beautiful people are always called stupid. It’s because less than beautiful people need a reason to feel good about themselves. I love Antonio and will continue to be a fan!

  34. Rhonda says

    Thank you KC!!! Antonio DID NOT have a life sized Batman mannequin. Before you idiots post and talk shit,please have your facts straight. He had 2 Batman mask. One being the Original from the movie. I am a somewhat fan of Antonio and I think he is gay-friendly and answered that question very well. Not wanting to call himself stupid and not wanting to offend anyone else. Chelsea is funny and i actually enjoyed the interview. Also most of us don’t know how it feels to be model beautiful so we probably do think they are lying when they say they don’t stand in the mirror everyday and call themselves beautiful.

  35. patrick mahoney says

    I agree with Rhonda…

    The question was a set up……duh. BTW, who gives a flying “F” if he is gay or not. His life, let him live it his way. He isn’t slamming anyone, and seems like a nice guy. How is it that ANYTHING said on this topic by an actor/model is “wrong?”

    Gay= Smart? Not from what I see… (well, I think I am; but that doesn’t count 😉

    Looking fit = dumb? Not from my experience. They are very disciplined and hard working guys that, surprise, get results!

    If most of the trolls I see in the gym showers/sauna used a fraction of the energy that they use whining and tearing down other folks on their bodies in the actual gym or just walking/running/swimming, they would look better than this guy. People with low self esteem, call these guys “stupid” so they don’t have to face themselves, and their lack of effort.

    Men have it easy. We can do and be (physically) just about whatever we want; depending upon what we “put in” in terms of effort, time, food, etc.. Women have to deal with genetics and childbearing body issues; and yet they generally do, better than men.

    Get over yourselves…. Get over “Gay” &””Sexaholism” being the only things in your lives….

    In short, get a life and leave poor bastards like this guy alone. He is just trying to do his job, acting. And frankly seems like a nice guy. Accept that, him as he is…..i.e. unavailable to the local troll…..and dont turn him bitter through your unfaced baggage.
