Calvin Klein's Model Boytoy Nick Gruber Filming Reality Show 'Tell-All' About Relationship

GruberAs reported in August, Calvin Klein's former boytoy Nick Gruber, who had a run-in with the law in April and subsequently entered a Klein-financed rehab session, is writing a book about his relationship with the fashion designer. He plans to accompany that with a reality show, Page Six reports:

“The show is basically about me being in a relationship with Calvin,” Gruber, who’s also penning a tell-all book, told us at the Sherri Hill show at Trump Tower Friday. “It’s also me trying to figure out who I am as a process of coming from his lifestyle from New York to LA [where he now lives], at the same time being the straight boy and still [liking] men and women.” So is Gruber, currently dating John Luciano, straight? “I don’t believe in labels,” he said, adding that his new beau allows him to see women.

Filming begins in January.

  1. Sorry, but if this doesn't prove what's wrong with the entertainment world, I don't know what does. He needs a reality show like the Duggars need more kids.

  2. This will make Jersey Shore look like Shakespeare.

  3. Emblematic of everything that's wrong with gay culture and my generation. What a tool.

  4. This is going to be a trainwreck, although depending on who's ghostwriting the bok it might be a decent read. (and yes, I've got the experience to back that up, after six months of dating a boy who's mom said "It's good that he's dancing at Splash, because he doesn't have many other chances for gainful employment")

  5. Okay let's get a reality check here.

    There is no show - this is just an idea at this stage. Notice how there's no mention of the network or airdate.

    This idea won't go anywhere because a) no-one knows who Nick is b) he's not very interesting c) it has big lawsuit potential and d) how do you do a show about an ended relationship when you can't film the other party.

    As someone who works in TV I'm pretty sure this is a non story.

  6. I can't tell if he's I feel bad for him because he's so young and has no idea how dumb he sounds...

    OR.

    If he's never going to feel totally shamed because he's really an ahole and will be one for the rest of his life.

  10. I barely cared enough writing this. Who would watch it?

  11. Unfortunately, there's a lot of tools out there. They think we want to know everything about them. Memo to tools: we don't need you, we don't want you, and we don't like you. Take your silly shows and shove them.

  12. A whore is a whore, no matter who the clientele is. And evidently that whore needs a new pay check. How sad.

  13. Nah, reality show is just a bridge to porn.

  14. Bambino he has already done porn -- see Sean Cody.

  15. This is the same kind of crazy that creates the Luca Magnottas of the world.

  16. Gruber doesn't like labels? Neither do I, but in his case I'm confident in calling him what he is, a prostitute. He prostitutes [whores] his body. Only his body, I think. He doesn't sound like he's got much going on upstairs.

    TV [broadcast and cable] is badly fractured. And they're trying to appeal to a declining and more ignorant audience.

  17. PASS.

  18. This just makes me think that Calvin's life must have become awfully sordid. How else do you account for Calvin making this creature a fixture in his life? With all the prestige, celebrity, and money at Calvin's disposal, and the best "boy toy" he could come up with was Nick? Wow. Personally, I'm fascinated. How did Calvin end up with a dumb, snaggle-tooth hustler who likely suffers from a mild case of FAS? Is Calvin sort of like an eldergay version of Charlie Sheen? I wish someone with some sort of credibility and intelligence would step forward and divulge all the details of Calvin's life with Nick: how and where they met, Calvin's state of mind. Maybe a roman a clef.

  19. Stop with the "I hate labels" BS. You're into dudes and chicks - that makes you bisexual. Nothing wrong with that. I'm a gay Mexican-Native American male - that's my label, and I'm proud of it.

  20. I'm always pleased by the sheer level of intelligence in Towleroad comment-fields. No sarcasm to that! It really does always please me - mighty refreshing change from, well, almost everywhere else.

  21. On the plus side, I saw a supermarket tabloid magazine that listed famous designers and their "boy toys," like Karl Langerfeld, Marc Jacobs, and Vera Wang - and the gay relationships were treated the same as the straight relationships. Years ago, it would all have been shut up, but now it's being written about like it's no big deal. Think about it - that's real progress, even though it's trashy.

    However, these "boy toys" better enjoy themselves while they have it, because it's going to come crashing down on them sooner or later when they have no marketable skills.

  22. How is this going to work? Even for reality TV this seems a stretch since they are pretending to film a 'reality' show about a relationship that ended quite some time ago & likely without any participation from one half of that relationship, i.e. Mr. Klein?

    Is it all dream sequences? "Nicky G. reflects on his oh-so-fascinating life with Calvin"? Taiwanese animation of what he thinks happened? The Gruber Monologues?

  23. What does this boy have??? I perosnally dont find him at all attractive, he doesnt seem his mind is captivating them and all evidence I have seen tells me his personality has some issues in some areas. He mist give a mean blow job.

  24. You have to love the guy! He is so delusional he actually thinks he is relevant and/or interesting.

  25. His body is certainly snackworthy. Not that that's enough to make up for the rest of him.
