He just got nutty. Cocaine? The first part of his career was chockful of successes. The last years: Can't Stop The Music; Grease 2; Snow White vs. Rob Lowe... I remember him giving Merv a tour of his home with a copper disco floor, dressed in a caftan.
Says he died of "liver cancer". Didn't that used to be a euphemism for the AIDS?
But wasn't that more for closet-cases, r2? Surely he wasn't closeted.
I recently read he was Cass Elliot's manager the last year or so of her life. He was doing a good job of it, she was staging a cabaret comeback. Played two sold out weeks at the London Palladium and then sadly died after the final show.
OP, are you a caftan manufacturer and/or salesman?
The ham sandwich was on her bedside table uneaten, not a single bite taken out of it. Cass died due to a crash diet where she didn't eat for days at a time. It's also speculated she may have been taking diet pills, speed. Either way, or both, the diet damaged her heart. Great singer, comparable to Streisand (they were up for the same parts early in their careers) died at 32.
OP, you bitch. Chatty Man is still alive.
Oh for god's sake R3, it was a JOKE.
Honest to god, I can't believe the knee jerks on here these days.
There's this writer, I think his name is Hoffler or something. He's like a senior editor at Variety and he does books on gay celebrities in Hollywood during the 50s-70s. He wrote a book about Allan Carr and the goings-on at his mansion, Hillhaven Lodge. Nureyev had a birthday coming up and Carr went all out. He invited all the hot studs he could find, put Nureyev in a guest house with his legs in the air, and watched as the famous ballerina serviced all comers. There was a line out the door.
