Rich Gay Jew marries Rich Gay Jew who was on "Survivor"

Congratulations, boys!

This guy went to U Penn?

BTW his great-great-grandfather or whatever is Julius Rosenwald, who you probably have heard of if you're from Chicago.

How gauche. I'm just surprised they didn't throw in some minor European royalty in there to make themselves look even more pretentious.

What chins!

The Penn reference was the key to remembering Charlie on 'Survivor.' He and another 'Survivor' contestant, Marcus, had a much discussed bromance while on the show.

They did not get far on 'Survivor,' but made the jury. So scenes of Marcus and Charlie were constantly available throughout that season on the 'Survivor' website. Guess Marcus was not gay after all.

I do remember that Charlie and Marcus took a trip together to Paris after that TV season. Charlie was out, and made no secret of his very strong feelings for Marcus. I hope they remained friends, and Marcus attended the wedding.

And his grandmother, Benay Venuta, was Ethel Merman's best friend in show business, but Merman was neither a relative nor Jewish so they could not get her into the write-up.

Good for them. I know a big jewish family. I'm still friends with one of the sons. The family pretty much dismissed me after finding out I was gay. My friend still puts up with a lot of shit from them because were still get along. Why can't they be more like my friend and just pray for my soul? I don't get it. Anyway, I'd love to see this family be in the same situation as the guys in the tread. There would meltdowns like you'd never seen before. I wish this because these people have been so damn mean to me.

They have good jobs but that doesn't make them rich. One of their parents is a school teacher.

Boys marrying boys? Oy, now I've seen everything.

For the reception did they go to an orchard and eat apples through a chain link fence? Those boys make SJP seem like a pug by comparison.

OP, turn in your gay card for missing the real news, and not titling your post "Rich Gay Jew marries Benay Venuta's grandson"

[quote]Congratulations, boys!

Thank you. That line is what makes these threads.

Wow, so he married his brother? How creepy.

by Anonymousreply 1202/10/2013

I guess he's no longer friends with Marcus Lehman :(

Marcu's twitter doesn't even mention nothing on his ol' pal.

If their wedding is at a restaurant, they can't be that rich, now, can they?

by Anonymousreply 1402/10/2013

Gee whiz, I wonder why he didn't win?

Fuck you Benay, I didn't make the wedding announcement!

Congrats guys!

From the little I know about the friendship between Ethel Merman and Benay Venuta, R16 has gotten it right. I believe they did not speak to each other several times for long periods.

A friend told me that the top has a huge schlong and the bottom has a good-sized dick.

Oh, and both cut.

Were there any lesbian rumors about Merman and Venuta?

Gay face is alive and well. Why do gay men feel the need to oversmile and show every tooth in their head?

by Anonymousreply 2402/11/2013

I'd rather be poor and have nice teeth. That guy looks like a horse.

This is a website where we hate gay people, right?

Who would marry him?

by Anonymousreply 2702/11/2013

Why would they submit a pic with red eye for their wedding announcement? Did they think the Times would do the touch ups for them?

Charlie is such a fame whore. He was featured on all the Equinox posters at the gym and on their website as one of their success stories and how he's too busy to go to the gym but he likes how upscale and convenient Equinox is or some bullshit like that.

It has to be said, why are these guys never hot?

It must be love! With those choppers, you'd be putting your life in his mouth with every suck.

So, do they pronounce the one guy's last name like "Hoishul"?

When I was a kid, Benay Venuta, one of the guys, had been Ethel Merman's standby in GYPSY. Venuta was our guest star when the theatre company in the town where I grew up did GYPSY.

This would have been 1966. She led the way for Patti Lupone... what a bitch! She made all of the kids including Baby June cry.

by Anonymousreply 3402/11/2013

Could Benay Venuta actually sing? Or was she a Stritch-like brayer?

by Anonymousreply 3502/11/2013

I guess Charlie and Marcus broke up.

by Anonymousreply 3602/11/2013

Marcus had a nice cut penis.

R35 She patterned her performance after Merman... in rehearsals she would tell the director "Ethel did it this way...... Ethel crossed over in front of the desk....Ethel entered stage left.."

She was actually pretty good in the show, just didn't win any popular votes with the other actors who were from the community. This was Springfield Little Theatre in Springfield, Mo which would usually hire an equity artist for the musicals (Betty Buckley for Oliver!, Constance Towers for Mame, Robert Horton for Music Man etc) I was in my teens at the time so it was a long time ago. Check out the movie version of Annie Get Your Gun she plays one of the secondary characters. At the time she did Gypsy, Venuta was still married to actor Fred Clark.

"Marcus had a nice cut penis."

...which was seen briefly on the first episode of "Survivor: Gabon." There must still be photos on the Internet because it was mentioned in the press at the time, and not just the gay press.

Who is Benay Venuta?

R41 decent size I think :) It really is a shame Charlie had to marry that horseface and not Marcus.

Their little trip on Ponderosa to good.

My favorite NYTimes announcements are the ones that announce who the bride/groom's great and/or great-great grandparents were, as if we're a) supposed to be awed by such an illustrious pedigree and b) supposed to give two shits.

Bonus points if the bride/groom had an ANCESTOR who was notable in the 17th or 18th centuries. Oooh la la!

Amazing video with Charlie and Marcus on "Survivor.". At one point, Marcus mocks Charlie behind his back. Later they spend a very, very long time picked out their clothes for the evening, so they will coordinate.

by Anonymousreply 4502/12/2013

Watching those videos reminds me of two things: One, Charlie is very handsome; the NYTimes photo of him is unflattering. Two, Charlie and Marcus had magical chemistry! It is a shame that Charlie is not marrying Marcus. I wonder if Charlie and Marcus just grew apart, or if something went wrong in their friendship?
