Rocco DiSpirito he gay?

We can only wish.

What about Rocco Ritchie?

He's mine.

Funny because he's never been married!

Yes, according to a Dlisted item from 2005: [quote]A very reliable source was at Showtime's Tribeca Film Festival party at Nobu this past Friday. My source noticed none other than Rocco DiSpirito of The Restaurant fame chatting with openly gay actor Mario Cantone and an unidentified man. My source says Rocco looked gross and was wearing a plaid blazer with a polka-dot shirt. Rocco spent a lot of time chatting it up with Mario near the dancefloor. [quote]Then after a few minutes, Rocco grabbed the unidentified man's hand and they held hands across the dancefloor. They then canoodled in a very low-key way the rest of the evening. [quote]My source also tells me that Rocco has had several threesomes involving men.

He had an affair with Jai "Queer Eye" Rodriguez.

Why drag this hoary celebrity name back from the past? Besides all I remember was criticism that he got fat or got facial surgery. Good riddance.

Doesn't he have a new show on Bravo soon or am I making that up?

by Anonymousreply 1506/07/2011

It would be dispiriting to me to know he has a new show.

by Anonymousreply 1606/07/2011

He does have a new show starting on Bravo June 15, I believe, and he is tres gay in the commercials for it.

by Anonymousreply 1706/07/2011

I was at a restaurant once when he and a few friends came in. It was surprising, because it wasn't what I'd call a fancy restaurant. Just a mid-level sushi joint. He kept taking calls on his phone, talking loudly and then walking outside then coming back in. He barely looked at his friends, he was so rapt with his five million phone calls. He struck me as being a total douche.

(Can you call someone a "douche" here or will someone tell me it's hateful towards female hygiene?)

by Anonymousreply 1806/07/2011

The haters all worked for him and didn't want to pull their weight. Rocco demands the BEST and the low lifes just couldn't pass muster.

by Anonymousreply 2006/07/2011

We don't want him to be gay so we're sending him to George Rekers for ex-gay lessons.

by Anonymousreply 2106/07/2011

For a second, I got him confused with Rocco Stiffredi, and I was thinking, how on earth could he be gay?

by Anonymousreply 2206/07/2011

Was that Freudian? it's siffredi, not stiffredi.

My sonny boy, he's a no gay...

There was a Billy Masters item about him and that USELESS Latino twink on "Queer Eye" being an item.

by Anonymousreply 2506/07/2011

R18, the term is permissible if it is understood to rhyme with "touche."

by Anonymousreply 2606/07/2011

No, he's not gay.

I second the vote to collect money and send him to straight camp.

Could we set up a fund, online?

by Anonymousreply 2906/07/2011

Not gay but a total douche bag. I used to do business with him before he was on TV. Nasty, arrogant and a liar.

by Anonymousreply 3006/07/2011

Not gay, really into black women.

[R25] Oh yeah, I forgot about that useless Latino twink Jai. Couldn't stand him on that Queer Eye show.

by Anonymousreply 3206/07/2011

Here to tell you that Jai is a bigger asshole than Rocco

by Anonymousreply 3306/07/2011

Oh really [R33]? Tell us more. I'm not surprised - I never fell for his "I'm the nice sweet little twink" act.

Let the straights have him. I'm probably one of 10 people who watched both seasons of "The Restaurant" and he came off really badly, especially season 2 where he basically walked off the show. I can totally believe he's a douchebag asshole.

On the show he flirted with the gay employees as well as the pretty female waitstaff, but it came off more as a teasing power-trip than actual sexual interest.

by Anonymousreply 3806/08/2011

yes and he is cute as a button in an Italian mama's boy kinda way...

Dating Katie Brown is kind of gay.

R40, take your lower-case sensibilities and jump into a hole with them. Head first. You know, like the cunt you first escaped from screaming.

There seems to be more controvery about Rocco than anyone else talked about. Nice / Not Nice, Gay/ Not Gay, Married, Not married.

Very Interesting.

nndb very rarely puts "matter of dispute" for orientation, even for some questionable people. So there you have it.

Saw him on Food Network this morning making low-cal spaghetti and meatballs. So much eye work he looks like Björk.

He really loves the plastic surgery.

There's no real evidence that he could possibly be totally straight.

There's also no real evidence that he could possibly be totally gay. That said, getting fat in one's 40s is *far* more prevalent among straight men than gay men.

I liked his old face when he was on "The Restaurant" better - now he looks too twinky.

by Anonymousreply 5806/11/2013

I saw him at mastros in Beverly Hills with two of the skankiest women that I have ever seen in my life. Seriously, they looked like hookers. He also looked high as a kite. I think he is straight, and really gross.

by Anonymousreply 5906/11/2013

No, he isn't straight, that is so, so silly.

by Anonymousreply 6006/11/2013

I don't know if he's strictly gay now, but I know he's an asshole. He had an affair with a (female) friend of mine while he was married, she knew he was married but he pulled that old bullshit 'I'd leave her right now but our finances are too complicated and entwined' and 'Be patient, I'll be divorced soon and then we can be together for good'. Their affair lasted about 18 months. From what she said at the beginning it was pretty good and he treated her really well, but by the end she said she couldn't believe anything he said. He's apparently a very bad liar. She also said he had a temper problem which was why she finally ended it. During that time (when their affair was just about over) she heard that he had another on the side thing going on with a guy. When she brought it up to him he said it wasn't true, she said she didn't believe him because he denied the whole thing with what she called his 'liar face'.

by Anonymousreply 6106/11/2013

He looked much better with his god-given face. Not fabulous, but fun and quirky. His new face looks too botoxed. Sorry, Rocco. Your time is up.

by Anonymousreply 6206/11/2013

I simply do not believe any stories about this guy being straight. It just makes absolutely no sense because he acts and looks so gay.

by Anonymousreply 6306/11/2013

I don't get why he fucked with his face at such a young age. And the work just makes his eyes look even beadier.

Gay as the candied fruit in a cannoli.

He gives off a queeny Liberace like vibe(his face looks frozen as well) in person. He is also so attached to her fugly looking mama as well. Gay? Gayer than Paul Lynde, Rip Taylor, Lib and Charles Nelson Reilly put together I always say....

by Anonymousreply 6606/11/2013

I would totally agree with that posting. Hi gayness is on a Liberace level.

Promoting his new book on the tube today. Looks very good.

by Anonymousreply 6901/22/2014

This guy was on The View this morning.

He is at least as gay as the current King of the Closet Graham Moore, the screenwriter of Imitation Game.

They had him show guest host Stacy London how to whisk eggs by moving in close behind her and taking each of her hands in his.

It was the stiffest, most uncomfortable display since the Clooney nuptials.

by Anonymousreply 7003/06/2015

There were lots of rumors back when the NBC show was on that he was hooking up with pre-op trannies. That seems to be a common method for so-called straight guts to start exploring new horizons. I'm guessing he does male-identified guys by now.

by Anonymousreply 7101/11/2016

Was shoveling the blow up his honker like a Hoover during whatever you want to call his "time" with Jai, a real vile asshole. Dealt with him for a benefit and was like swimming in acid, every second was a nightmare.

A good friend did a lot of work for him over an extended period of time and Rocco stiffed him on a decent amount of what was owed. My friend worked with tons of celebs and restauranteurs. He absolutely hates Rocco.

However he says he's totally straight.

by Anonymousreply 8601/13/2016

He is a "FIRST-CLASS,GRADE-A ,ALL STAR DOUCHE-BAG" Even before he had his "douche-bag show", he thought his shit didn't stink. I had an argument with Rocco in NYC at a restaurant about 8 yrs ago,total fucking asshole,All about a chair he wanted for his table of friends,because my 1 friend was late and he wanted the chair for his stuff. I told the MOFO to back off but he got him my face. I told him "don't let the custom suit fool you, my central Florida,lower middle class white trash Philly Faggot ass will fucking kick the shit outta you" The owner told Rocco"he will hurt you,he has no qualms about hurting people". She backed down,they always do!!

by Anonymousreply 8701/13/2016

That's always been Rocco's rep around town and he is indeed pretty famous for not paying bills

by Anonymousreply 8801/13/2016

Rocco is not liked within the food world by chefs etc. he's a despicable human being ..that's why he isn't in a relationship!
