I hate him. He goes on the Today Show and tells us we can't eat my favorite foods.
He changed Men's Health and Men's Fitness, which used to have good workout tips, etc, into a fawning magazine about celebs and their "workout," regimes, always making them seem so butch. Every cover was photoshopped just like a woman's maagazine, etc.
At least when Men's Fitness had models on the cover you had good workout tips and something to look at.
R4 can you spill a bit more tea? The description you wrote is kinda how I always perceived him, and I only know him from what I've seen and heard during his on-air segments.
I think Zinczenko and Rocco Dispirito would make a handsome couple.
I get a bi vibe from both Lauer and Zinczenko. Am I off base?
[quote]Was it Gawker that did the little expose on how Men's Health has been recycling the exact same story ideas over and over for years?
Well, duh. It's like a bridal magazine where instead of dresses you got six packs in ten days.
He lived with Dan Abrams for several years. They were both dating high-profile females. It just seemed strange that two men with their money needed to share living space.
Is he the Eat this, not that queen?
R4 here. DZ was just one of those bosses who simply made it clear that he knew more than you did, was smarter than you were, and lived a more fabulous life than you could ever possibly imagine. I worked in editorial, and no one's copy was ever as good as his was, even though he actually is barely a mediocre writer. His real talent was his endless self-promotion. Endless. Never stopped. Continual. Always going. Energizer battery nonstop. Constant.
But I never did pick up a gay vibe from him. My sense was that his masturbatory fantasies were always of himself, and that if he could have the perfect woman, it would be him, as a woman.
R19 what gifts did he give out at x-mas time?
did he take part in the office Oscar pool?
when someone went on maternity leave, did he attend the office baby shower? Or at least get a gift>
More details about co-workers who saw him naked, please.
