Married English TV Presenter Admits To Affair With Another Man, Drug Use

English television and radio presenter Paul Ross has revealed that for the past year, he has been cheating on his wife with another man, reports The Huffington Post.

Ross is the brother of television and radio presenter Jonathan, who in 2011 revealed that his daughter is gay.

Ross told tabloid newspaper The Sun that he first met former teacher Barry Olivier when he visited a dogging site near his home, to watch other couples having sex.

He also revealed that he regularly snorted mephedrone when he was with Olivier:

"I tried it. Then I got this immediate euphoria... What I didn’t know then was that it makes you feel like you are in heaven when in reality you are actually going to hell."

The affair came to an end when his wife Jackie became suspicious of her husband's whereabouts, and tracked his phone using an app on her iPad.

Jackie has pledged to stand by her husband, saying,

"I’m not wiping out a 14-year relationship for six months of madness, I’m not. Because I know he loves me. I know 90 per cent of Paul is a good man. He’s a good dad. I feel the sex was part of the mephedrone package, I don’t see it as a gay relationship, I see it as part of the drugs. I’m not letting that vile little gargoyle destroy what we’ve got.”

Describing himself as an addict, Ross is now seeking counselling for his addiction to the class B stimulant:

“The person I have been over the last 14 months isn’t someone I recognise. I have done things I didn’t even think it was possible for a human being to do. I have started counselling for my drug addiction. I have had two sessions already. I can’t believe how stupid I’ve been. Jackie has been amazing through this. She is such a brave woman and she doesn’t deserve what I have put her through.”


Rupert Everett: Sexuality Has Been A Huge Issue In My Career - VIDEO

Rupert everett

In a recent interview, actor Rupert Everett has said that his sexuality has been a major issue throughout his career.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Everett said:

“There’s only a certain amount of mileage you can make, as a young pretender, as a leading man, as a homosexual. There just isn’t very far you can go.”

Everett has courted controversy in the past by telling gay actors to stay in the closet and for coming out against same-sex families.

Currently in rehearsals for Peter Schaffer’s Amadeus at the Chichester Festival Theatre, London, Everett said of his role:

“I can see a lot of [Antonio Salieri ] in me. I have periods of intense bitterness and fury at the world and blame-throwing at everybody else. It’s a very easy thing to get into.”

On his problems with addiction, Everett says:

“I’m still probably not in the position to say 'no’. If you got out a gram of coke now and offered me a line, I’m sure I’d take one. But I wouldn’t seek one out and I know it’s not going to get me any place much. Weed, which I adore, I had to stop smoking, if only for learning Amadeus.”

The actor also talks candidly about how promiscuity in his early life had him terrified that he had contracted HIV.

Benoit Denizet-Lewis Faces His Obsession in the Flesh

Author and journalist Benoit Denizet-Lewis writes about his sex addiction in the NYT in an excerpt adapted from his book America Anonymous: Eight Addicts in Search of a Life:

Americaanonymous"If you ask alcoholics about the first time they became drunk, many will say it was the moment they finally felt O.K. in the world. I never had that sensation while drunk or stoned, but I did feel it the first time I entered a gay men’s chat room, while in college. In a kind of hypnotic trance, I sent out photos of myself to rave reviews. But there were never enough reviews, never enough guys, never enough validation. Within three months, I had hooked up with 20 guys from online. Within six months, I was routinely skipping out on friends so I could spend nights in chat rooms. Within a year, I had essentially lost the ability to control the time I spent on the Internet. For the life of me, I couldn’t sign off. It took another five years before my life completely fell apart..."
