This is quite sad. And, it's refreshing to see him acknowledge that while HIV is not a death sentence, it can take a toll on your body. His analogy about a crappy phone with an app that eats up all your battery is fantastic. I agree that the bit about "waking up in a pool of blood" is glossed over as if it were a regular thing. There is no context. He got so drunk that he fell, hit his head, and bled? Or is it supposed to imply he was raped? I'm not sure why waking up in a pool of blood = concerned and calling your doctor?

The story about his marriage came from him calling a reporter. The story about the baby, too. How else do you think those hits come about? Reality personalities from nearly two decades ago aren't on any reporter or editor's radar. The genesis of the HIV+ story is almost certainly Danny. Someone he made angry was threatening to go to the press, so he called the person's bluff and got a tiny post on EW.

PrEp isn't magical protection. Young men (and older, I guess) are using PrEp instead of condoms. They reason that they won't get HIV. For those that were never going to adhere to condom usage, PrEp away. It's the ones that are abandoning condoms when they previously used them that I'm thinking about.

That's not accurate R41. He moved to North Carolina to live with Paul Dill after the show. He hosted a collection of shorts called Boys Briefs 2 and his hosting was stilted. Just terrible.

They lived there and in Seattle. They broke up in 2006.

In 2011/2012 he returned to Hollywood and was on a TV series on OUTtv/Netflix called, "DTLA" with Daryl Stevens.

When that didn't work out he moved back to Atlanta and started selling real estate. He got married again in 2013.

Last we saw of him was on WWHL with Andy Cohen back in 2014 where he claimed he hooked up with a now married (with children) cast member of the RW/RR Challenge. We later found out that it was either Adam Larson or The Miz.

But no, he didn't turn his back on Hollywood very quickly. He did, however, probably realize he wasn't cut out for it.

"One weekend, he had passed out and woke up in a pool of blood."

In the biography of Gia Carangi, the lesbian junkie "supermodel" who died of AIDS, it's written that when her mother came to visit her in the hospital (she had full blown AIDS by then) she "went into the room and thought she noticed a red spot on the bed sheets under Gia's hand. She pulled back the sheets to reveal her daughter lying in a pool of blood, and immediately ran out into the hall screaming for a doctor, a nurse, anyone." So...where the fuck did the blood come from? Her anus? Her vagina? It's said earlier in the book that she developed persistent vagina bleeding, or "a permanent period." Anyway, it's never explained what exactly caused her to be in a pool of blood. I wish it had been explained. I guess the same thing, whatever it was, happened to Danny Roberts.

IMO still a cool guy.

Call me a sociopath but HIV shouldn't define an individual and it shouldn't define an entire community as a whole. Especially in 2018 where there is medication available to manage the illness. Of course that doesn't exclude fighting for affordable HIV medication (or an actual cure - sure, like big pharma wants to let go of that cash cow!) and fighting against the still lingering stigma HIV+ people face to this day.

[quote]Bless your fkin heart you feeble minded cunt. MTV didn't had out paychecks for being on the show.

They did get paid to do the show but what they got was a "stipend" originally. People mostly made money doing college tours and talking about the show. The stipend ranged from a little over $1,500 to $5,000 and up depending on the year you were on.

However, article that R140 listed is from 2011.

[italic]Things were different when Danny did the show in 2000.[/italic]

The stipend was barely enough to cover (for most people) your rent back home.

Later on they introduced "fines" if the cast didn't do certain things like, tell them when they were going somewhere. You could get fined $100 for trying to go out without telling production at one point.

The whole part about agreeing to do the Challenges was added in because people didn't want to do the Challenges.

The casts kept continually fighting for more and the production kept encountering issues over the years so the contract "evolved."

Now cast members for Challenges can even negotiate their appearance fee and get thousands just for showing up.

Wasn't there a rumor that Danny dated Jess Cagle at some point? That would explain why this was written up in Entertainment Weekly.

by Anonymousreply 17111/20/2018

R171 Yes, you're right. And, that occurred to me, too. No obvious trigger for the story, however, unless someone was going to the Enquirer or Radar. It would be unusual for Jess to be involved at this level of "story." It's only online, though, and I figured the "exclusive" was in exchange for 1) DR being able to tell his story the way he wanted to tell it (devoid of details and heavy on victimhood) and, 2) all the sixth tier bottom feeder online pubs having to refer to and link to because DR won't give the original quotes. You might be correct, but I just don't see Jess doing this unless there was a compelling reason. Danny deciding to "come clean" is never happening, so that isn't it.

by Anonymousreply 17511/20/2018

R173 It's not terribly subtle. HIV isn't something his longtime behavior brought on and he's angry that anyone might victimize him for conducting himself in such an unsafe manner. “The reason I want to share this story is that I spent so long battling and beating myself up..,” he says. Sorry, but DR was on a path long, long ago to his HIV diagnosis. The story goes on to refer to DR as "forthright, articulate, and introspective as he talks about living with HIV," which is indicative of playing to the subject because you have to. The point is to paint him as someone minding his own business who was hit by a bus full of a terminal disease. Using the same analogy, DR has been playing in a street of only busses for at least the 15 years. Radar would have written the story much differently.

by Anonymousreply 17611/20/2018

I'm not sure I buy your analysis. The reference to waking up in a pool of blood invites questions that don't aid a narrative of minding one's own business before waking up at a House in Virginia.

If he doesn't think about it and it wasn't his intention, then he thinks it can't be his fault. That's how I'm certain the HIV+ revelation is someone who finally had enough saying they were going to Enquirer or Radar. Radar, in particular, will post anything (though EW is not far behind in terms of relevancy, if not accuracy in reporting).

by Anonymousreply 18411/20/2018

And, with that, I've officially had enough of DR one more time in my life, only after saying that some think because they watched him on TV 20 years ago that they know him, but what you see (even what he believes about himself) and what his actions portend are miles apart. You only have to look at the inability to maintain a relationship (sorry "oh, gosh" queen, Kelly doesn't count), or a job with any real prospects (he currently aims for low, very low, $100K in markets where that's nothing - a manager salary). But, once he's dead, the flyover nothings on DL will talk about how they swooned in Tulsa at 12 when he was on the Real World for free.

We know the Danny Roberts on the show isn't the same as Danny in reality. We know he has a life and it's much more complex than anyone on the internet that doesn't know him can understand.

That being said: The idea of "Danny Roberts" on the Real World: New Orleans did [bold]a lot[/bold] for young gay men out there and while that may not match up with reality that does NOT lessen the impact that idea had which is why people are still talking about Danny almost two decades later.

Gay non-profits made a decision years ago to focus on normalizing sero-converting, because the "stigma" is far worse than ANY life-threatening illness can ever be! This was before they all morphed into Trans organizations, so AIDS/HIV barely gets any ink at all these days, because there are SO many "trans" children to breathlessly advocate for!

An HIV poz status is also necessary for one to become an "AIDS Advocate" because HIV-negative guys are unworthy of any respect, because their prevention is simply "judgment", or being "sex negative". NOBODY gives a fuck what any HV-negative guy has to say. They are treated with a great deal of suspicion, and certainly receive no attention or fanfare that the sero-converters are lavished with.

You'd be a unicorn if that were true so, yea, it is cruel to lecture Danny. For what purpose? To rub it in his face if he had been unsafe a few times? Many times? Again, what satisfaction does it give you? Maybe he is saying look at me, I got it, be safe. Every story about someone contracting it DOES make others rethink unsafe behavior.

Mike Manning is much cuter and doesn't have the AIDS.

by Anonymousreply 29811/23/2018

r78, the only way someone could be HIV+ and undetectable without meds is if he (in order):

1. caught HIV,

2. treated it to undetectability BEFORE it underwent CCR5 mutation (which usually doesn't happen until the person is WAY past the clinical threshold for "AIDS", and within months of death)

3. caught leukemia

4. had his white blood cells killed by radiation, then received a "transplant" of cloned white blood cells from a donor with a double "CCR5-delta32" mutation (which renders the donor immune to ~84-96% of HIV strains known to exist in "the wild", in people who aren't within weeks of death from AIDS as per #2)

After #4, the person is "technically cured" of HIV. He still "has" it, but his "new" T-cells can't be infected by the latent HIV virions in his viral reservoir, so the HIV is kind of like a burning oil lamp on a wet concrete slab with plenty of oil to burn forever, but unable to spread beyond that oil lamp.

Somebody who had a heterozygous CCR5-delta32 mutation to begin with is naturally semi-immune to HIV (well, 84-96% of known strains)... but because the only strains that CAN infect someone like that are the deadliest ones (which ironically, are the strains least-able to newly-infect someone), someone with that immunity who DID manage to get infected anyway would go downhill REALLY FAST without aggressive treatment (the good news is, even CCR5 mutant HIV is generally susceptible to tenofovir & other first-line antivirals, so it's still not a lost cause).

IMHO (and the opinions of most HIV researchers), even someone who acquires a technical cure as described above would be stupid & reckless to quit taking meds, even if the likelihood of future self-reinfection is low. Modern meds work, have no real side effects, and that technically-cured person should still AT LEAST be on PrEP in case he gets exposed to one of the 6-14% of strains that CAN infect him. If you're HIV+, technically-cured, and on PrEP anyway, it's insane to not just add drug #3 and be totally covered.

(footnote: it's possible to have a homozygous CCR5-delta32 mutation. In that case, it would offer no real immunity, but would be self-limiting. The HIV would infect & kill off the 50% of T-cells without the immunity, then be unable to progress further. Most guys who caught HIV pre-triple-drug combo therapy & lived 10+ years did so by virtue of having a homozygous CCR5-delta32 mutation).

by Anonymousreply 29911/23/2018

TLDR: CCR5 is a protein that enables HIV to "dock" onto an infectable cell. No CCR5, and HIV just floats aimlessly with nothing to "grab".

Some people (mostly east-central Europe, esp. Slovakia) are born with a mutation that alters CCR5 in 50% or 100% of their T-cells in a way that renders the cell immune to any strain that needs CCR5 to "dock".

It's believed that the original mutation arose during Europe's Black Death (or some earlier hemorrhagic fever epidemic).

It's not *totally* a win, though. People born with the mutation are immune to most strains of HIV, but are ULTRA-susceptible to upper respiratory infections.

Source: I was born with the heterozygous variety. I'm on PrEP anyway (96-99% protection is a net improvement over 86-94%). On any given day, I'm ~25% likely to have a respiratory infection of some kind (rarely in summer, nonstop all winter).

I thought he was cute but never thought he was (and I hate this term because it makes no sense) "straight acting"

He's a gay man's version of masculine but to me when I think of masculine guys I think of people like Chuck Norris, the kind of cocky aloha male that most men want to BE

Also most straight guys aren't masculine at all, especially nowadays, they get emasculated big time once they settle down with women and have kids

So using the term "straight acting" is odd...

301 - Cut the homophobic superiority complex. Maybe you can flex when you can run even ONE pejorative for bisexuals past everybody when the average person can think of at least twenty perjoratives for gays off of the top opt their heads. Furthermore, no straight person is conflicted about bisexuals because they are bisexual. They are conflicted because you "gay" ( verb) and most don't want no parts of that in their beds or to run their sentimental clock on bisexual time ( It takes a certain type of person to want too get with somebody who they can't even hypothetically sexually satisfy. I've seen to many "shoe drops" even in monogamous with a bisexual relationships with a straight person involved ).

Somebody needs to give moaning bisexuals a reality check. Trying to flex "oppressed" then being homophobic and expecting straights to join in.

R320 I love femininity in women, long hair nice boobs on display, makeup, heels etc. I also have to be dominant with women and run the show, not into fat chicks or blue haired ultra liberal SJW types, I'm middle of the road with politics, if a girl I'm into calls herself a feminist or says words like "male priveledge ", I go running the other way.

Wirh dudes it's more laid back since we're both men and both on equal footing, I love masculinity in men so they have to have a NATURAL masculinity that, let's face it, I've never seen in a 100% gay guy and that I have seen, but it's rare, in bisexual guys, I love those alpha types, like me, who love to compete with their fellow man and have confidence and swagger, preferably a guy who goes to the gym a lot and is into baseball, hockey and football, not just watching it but also PLAYING it .

My ex boyfriend I met at work, we were friends for a year hanging out with him and his fiance, one day I mentioned being bi to him and he said that he was too but was only with two guys in the past and that if he wasn't with Stephanie he would fool around with me

He ended up breaking up with Stephanie, NOT because of that, 6 months later and he moved out and then we started fucking each other, usually after getting drunk, wrestling shirtless and playing beer pong , we also webt hunting together a few times and he decided to join the Army after basic training he moved in with me and since I have a big house, he had his own room and we continued having hot manly buttsex, but we would argue a lot because all he did waa lounge around the house and fart all day and play video games,EVERY damn Call of Duty, I love video games and farting as much as the next guy but was busting my ass working 80 hour weeks, we decided we were better as friends although the sex was amazing and I let him stay with me as he was paying rent and we were best friends.

Dude loves a load, almost as much as... - Flyover nothings "love" Danny, primarily for not appearing to be fay in their sad adolescence. They will hear nothing but that he is everything, still, now, 18 years later. The cold light of day - relationship failures, career failure, getting the fucking HIV! - means nothing, because if you know DR to be a dull, calculating whore, you're just jealous. And, these sad flyovers love that... - Danny calls reporters when he wants a tiny snippet of his former, what, "fame?" Makes them feel 15 or 25 or 40 again. He called them about his marriage, he called them about the baby, he called them about his HIV, which at this point is very old news. Many people knew (though I'm sure not all of his playmates). Dude loves a blurb, even if it's only online. I'm pretty sure that's it, though allow a few slots for flyovers to say "not true" and "fuck you." It passes time. Below is a photo from this summer.

Certain no one cares. You don't live in NYC or LA, obviously, so you know who would care least? DR. That, my sad, limited correspondent, is the icing on the fucking cake.

by Anonymousreply 38911/27/2018

R387 But, lets unpack this. So you were 13 when an only marginally cute gay visible on television changed your life? So not LA or NYC or anywhere where people who were gay were actually visible? I'm not saying that's bad or that you brought that on yourself. I'm saying that was a character on a television show edited to make you feel the way you did and that the cipher, the body, that carried that edit is not who you think he is. You insist, based on nothing other than that edit that he is. You can counter this saying I don't actually know him and he is, in fact, his edit. First, why would anyone "claim" to know Danny Roberts from Y2K MTV? You have to imagine anyone could come up with someone more high profile discussed on this message board, yes? I'd remind you, also, he hasn't had one long term relationship and can barely keep a job for more than a couple of years. He is aimless. Also, fuck off.

Errr... there are far less dramatic things that can bleed after passing out. He could have tripped & had a toenail get ripped off off (ouch). Or fallen on his face & gotten a nosebleed. Or had his cat give him a love swat demanding a treat while he was unconscious.

I swear, some of y'all wouldn't know what to DO with a hot ass like Danny's if he were naked in a sling right in front of you.

I know what I'd do... I'd spit in my hand, rub it onto my fat cock & mix it with all the pre-cum to get it nice & slippery, then fuck him so hard the guy in the next room over would cum, too. *That's* what you do when presented with a hot, hungry hole like Danny's -- you feed it a hearty meal of cock & cum.

Naw... Danny's a champion powerbottom. Powerbottoms don't lie back & get passively fucked and stretched out. Their sphincters get an active workout & stronger with time.

I've fucked guys whose asses could squeeze my cock hard enough to make me (painfully) "cum backwards" (forcing it up into my bladder, because the normal escape route down the urethra was tightly squeezed shut by the guy's sphincter).

Danny looks like one of those lucky guys who have real anal orgasms & will literally fuck your cock with his ass if he's close, getting driven wild & writhing in ecstasy, and the top starts to drop the ball.

Powerbottoms are the most fun when they're having a threesome with two tops. Or if they're vers, when they're in the middle between a top who's lying down & a bottom who's suspended above (so they, as the middle, can drive all the action).

What’s an anal orgasm? I’ve never had one

by Anonymousreply 43403/15/2019

R434, have you been fucked? If the top knows what he's doing when you're about to come he goes deep, stays in, and doesn't pull out. The sphincter enables ejaculation (it tightens) in a way to push and propel the sperm out (rather than let it just ooze out). When there's something that prevents the anus from closing, a dick (or a putt plug) you will feel the anus pulse as the vibrations that would trigger ejaculation throb in the anal region. I'm not a usual bottom, so I'm pretty tight, and when it happens, it's spectacular. Try a butt plug if you don't know what I'm talking about.

Well, unless Danny had one in his mouth, two in his ass, and one more taking Danny's cock in his ass... but a 5-guy position like THAT isn't "sex" as much as "performance art" and "sexual set design" due to the Jenga-like gymnastics (and intricately-designed sling & grab bars) required to get everyone into position and coordinate their movement.

The only Real World season iIsaw had him on it, and I felt mixed about him on it. On one hand, he was sweet and good-looking, and it was great having not only an openly gay character on the show (at a time where there weren't hardly any on TV) but also one who was at the time in a happy relationship. On the other hand, I thought he wasn't super interesting otherwise--all he ever did was to pine for his boyfriend or hump him in the hot tub when he came to visit (but it was filmed in such a way--especially with the boyfriernd's face blurred, and with no sex shown--that the hot tub humping wasn't very erotic at all). It was as if he was defined solely through his relationship.

by Anonymousreply 48103/20/2019

It was nice to see a sweet, gorgeous normal gay guy on TV. So many young gays (and probably older) were very happy to see a gay guy who did not have HIV and who was gorgeous and not fem. The majority of gays related to that because most of us weren't out and fem with HIV.

He's no Pedro.

by Anonymousreply 48303/21/2019

Pedro's death was tragic, but frankly, Pedro was a fucking idiot. He literally had a small army of doctors ready to move heaven & earth to get him early access to protease inhibitors that might have saved his life... and he refused.

I personally KNOW one of his former doctors from Miami (now retired). He said Pedro was a really nice guy, but was stubborn as hell and the most frustrating patient he ever had to deal with. Once he made up his mind about something, it was damn near impossible to get him to change it. Apparently, one of his doctors had a literal meltdown after pulling every possible string to get Pedro approved for the phase 3 trial for Saquinavir, only to have Pedro say 'no.' His friend Pam needed therapy for YEARS after he died because she blamed herself for being unable to convince him to take advantage of the opportunities that were available to him.

TL/DR: if Pedro hadn't been so stubborn, he might still be alive today.

I hadn't heard that before. I remember the moment I read in the newspaper that Pedro had died. That hit me hard because I thought he would make it. He's one of the early 1990s deaths that seem even more tragic because they were so close to when the medications became available in the mid-1990s.

by Anonymousreply 49003/26/2019

I think the *idea* of martyrdom had a romantic appeal to him, but he *also* completely failed to grasp the certainty of his own demise by refusing it... until it was too late.

That said, he might have had a brief remission, then died anyway a few years later if he started the Saquinavir after he'd already developed resistance to NRTIs (triple-therapy cocktails were still a few years away). Or if he'd developed an opportunistic cancer (like KS) & it metastatized before his immune system recovered. Or if he tried to keep up his punishing tour schedule (and wore himself down, missed dr. appointments, etc). Still... it's a shame he didn't even bother to try surviving.
