Beau Breedlove to Use Sam Adams Affair as Memoir Centerpiece

Beau Breedlove, the former legislative intern at the center of the scandal involving Portland Mayor Sam Adams, has decided to write a memoir about it, The Oregonian reports:

Adams_breedlove "His agent, Jon Malysiak, says they are in the preliminary stages of drafting a book proposal and hopes to have it ready in the next month. Malysiak said Breedlove plans to write it himself. 'The book is a reflection on the events of my life before, during and after the 'scandal' surrounding my relationship with Sam Adams,' Breedlove wrote in an e-mail to The Oregonian. 'In addition, the book will cover a broader look at people who have been in similar situations to mine, and how stereotypes both play into the media attention as well as are used as tools against victims. This book is a memoir, and an insight into the change that the GLBTQ community needs to see in the way we are portrayed and represented.'"

Breedlove, who posed nude for Unzipped shortly after the scandal, is currently living in Provincetown. He also has his own blog.

  1. Isn't his 15 minutes over?

  2. Correct me if I am mistaken here but doesn't one write "A Memoir" after one has lead a full life and accomplished oft times the impossible, the cure for a disease, reigned over people as a head of state, started/stopped a major war/conflict/famine etc??
    But for someone in his early 20's whose only claim to fame was an act(s) of Fellatio or being on the receiving end of Fellatio/anal play! Or for nearly derailing a politicians' career! Are these really cause celebre to warrant an Auto-Biography??? Could he not just write a few pages for the advocate or update his Manhunt profile - they would be somewhat interesting and more aptly suited!

  4. Of course he's currently living in Provincetown....

    The question is with whom?
    And who's paying the bills?

    Memoir centerpiece? ...In what?, the pamphlet-version? Obviously a new standard in introspective shallowness. There's barely enough "there" there for a twink-porn screenplay.....

  5. A very short and very boring and useless memoir.

  6. "Breedlove plans to write it himself"... with crayons?

  7. A memior would help increase Breedlove's $$$ value as a call boy/fame whore/cater waiter. But that gives call boys & caterers everywhere a bad name.

  9. What will it be called? "Diary of an Underage Whore"?

  10. He can write whatever the hell he wants - no one gives a damn or is gonna read it. That gives me a little consolation.

  11. So much for a gentleman never tells

  12. Dang, we in the Portland area just got rid of him to the East Coast, and now he's planning to rise again, like an STD. Any sympathy or credibility he had as a "victim" in the scandal, he's thoroughly forfeited.

  13. "....and how stereotypes both play into the media attention as well as are used as tools against victims."

    The only "victim" in this whole episode is his self-respect. What an attention-whore.

    He might as well write it on toilet paper b/c the final printed copy will be used for the same purpose.

  14. This guy disgusts me.

  15. I'll wait for the Michael Lucas XXX version, on Xtube.

  16. So many of the nutty ones end up in P'town. It's fun there and I love it, but the townie wannabe wash-a-shores tend to be of the damaged, lost or scammy ilk.

  17. A male "Carrie Prejean". Hilarious!

  19. His name even sounds like a cheap porn star.

    Posted by: Jeremy | Jan 19, 2010 4:24:15 PM


  20. The email he wrote to the big O doesn't even sound like something he'd say. How does he think we will actually believe he wrote the whole effin' book?!?

  21. Concepts for title,
    Idiots guide How to be an escort in 3 easy steps- we know 10 would be to hard.

    How to get something for nothing-life from the gray train.

    Bo knows II. (just for the sports fans)

    Why worry, self respect is over rated.

  22. Armed with his memoir, piercing self-awareness and a vat of hot lube, our li'l Beau is going places.

  23. One a publicity whore always a publicity whore. Brainless, unattractive sleazy, and with no scruples at all.
