Fabio: Looking for Love and Staying "Sexy"

Is he still fuckable? Do you think he'll finally find happiness with a woman? I wonder why he has been single all these years and is just now looking for a wife and still wants kids? It must be difficult to be an elderly Fabio selling I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. He's 62 and still looks like himself, though the buttery gleam is missing. I would have suspected he was on steroids all those beefcake years, with the huge chest and all, but maybe not. What are your thoughts and has anyone encountered him?

From the People article about his "coming out of retirement:"He still has the hair, which can catch any breeze. (What's different today: He sleeps in a hyperbaric chamber which, he says, "reverses the aging process.") Fabio both defined the decade and somehow never left it. Tsk-ing out of the side of his mouth in his Spanish-tiled mansion outside Los Angeles, he says, "Please. Who else can I be, besides Fabio?"

He's a fit, somewhat handsome guy.

But the hair is no longer doing many favors for him. It's sorta mildly OK but he's a few inches from being the weird old professor wearing a rat tail. He should cut it short.

He would be super hot for a 62 year old if he'd lose the ridiculous dyed hair. Even if the colour was not such a giveaway it is dry and thin... old hair. He should keep it short.

Is there any way to keep long hair looking good as one nears a certain age? It must be difficult for Fabio to cut it since long hair is part of his trademark look and identity. Think of those romance covers in the 1980s and 1990s. He was iconic.

Even back in day Fabio's hair was getting thin, wispy and looked so dry it probably crackled. But that's what happens when you're a slave to the bottle.

What happens to females is same for males who continuously bleach or otherwise process their hair. Women often have the advantage their hair is thicker and does not thin much as they age, but that always isn't true.

At some point every (smart) woman or man who has been coloring their hair for ages makes a decision. Let things go natural and thus what hair they've got left looks more healthy. Or continue love affair with bleaching/coloring until they are nearly bald.

Am also guessing over years Fabio wore extensions for length and to give more density.

Problem is once hair begins thinning wearing extensions becomes difficult to impossible. There is little natural hair to glue or sew extensions onto for a start. Lacking that natural density hiding or blending extensions becomes difficult.

Nothing is more horrible than an aging man with thin long hair struggling to look younger.

Where does one start? That picture of Fabio in OP shows point exactly.

He doesn't have "long hair" but about half to three-quarters are thin wispy ends. Trim those thin ends away and Fabio's hair would be about to his chin or higher.

He's lost very much of crown hair which is made more obvious by dying it a dark color. Look at any famous or whatever woman over say 50 or certainly 60 who were brunettes in youth. They've all gone to medium brown (often golden) to deeper shades of blonde (again often with gold or reddish gold).

Once a person passes 40 or maybe 50 deeper its time to kiss most shades of medium to dark brown and certainly black good bye.

Lighter shades of hair hide or allow easier blending of white hair. This means less time spent retouching roots, especially along hairline. Overall this results in healthier hair because one isn't in the chair every two or three weeks coping with white roots.

Fabio actually had shorter hair when younger, and it suited him rather well.

Problem with him having long hair now is Fabio's face. That thin long hair just doesn't have volume enough to counter the severe rugged look of Fabio's face. His face is rather square (especially from cheek bones down to chin), and that thin hair just serves to emphasis angular lines.

However the two "beautician" skits while at first glance seem to have Bugs playing a very femme gay, on second look there were female beauticians in 1930's, 1940's and 1950's who acted same way.

Men keep that wispy thin "long" hair because length (if you can call it that) helps conceal bald or badly thinning areas.

Usual way of dealing with thin hair and or to give lift at roots is to use mousse or some other product that will give volume and make roots stand up a bit.

With very thin or balding that doesn't work well because you then can see the scalp. This is why products meant to remedy this situation contain pigment well as fillers.

The former will color scalp making thin hair less noticeable. Latter aids in volume giving appearance of fuller hair.

"Tucker Carlson needed an expert on the California economy.

At times like these, why not turn to ... Fabio?

He’s done it before, in April 2017, when the erstwhile romance-novel cover model came on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to wax philosophic on the epidemic of crime in Los Angeles, blaming liberal leaders statewide for the “mess” and “epidemic.”

Thursday, Carlson was talking about L.A. crime once again, giving Fabio Lanzoni — that’s his last name, by the way — the chance to chime in on the state of his state of residence.

“Let me tell you something right now about California,” Lanzoni told Carlson. “It looks like the wild, wild west. No third-world country 30 years ago looks like California right now. Like downtown — I mean, you go down to the library. It’s like Sodom and Gomorrah. It’s like ‘sex, drugs and rock-n-roll.’”

But, he really needs to ditch the long straggly hair. It may have been his trademark, but it's awful now.

With short hair, he has the classic 80s male model look - Case in point, former Hugo Boss model Michael Flinn

Michael Bolton looks far more hotter after cutting off those wispy ends of hair he thought was a luxurious mane of hair.

Also with shorter hair MB could wear hair if he wanted to add a bit of fullness to an otherwise thinning crown.

Even Yanni has given up on that long mane of hair look.

Face it; few men have genes that allow them to keep long luxurious thick hair all their lives. Most guys by middle age experience some thinning, and things go into overdrive usually by 50 or 60.

Yes, there are men who are exceptions, but they are lucky.

That's just what Fabio lets on for the frau punters.

If the guy truly wanted children he would have married or otherwise had them years ago now.

Fabio has been successful and at least comfortably well off enough to afford a wife and children for a few decades now. He certainly has enough money could go way of many older straight or gay men and just hire a surrogate if he truly wanted children that badly, but no woman would have him for a husband.

Fabio also could have adopted a child or children as well.

No, this whole "looking for romance" and "wants to have children" is the same PR bullshit Fabio has been spewing for decades. And again fraus and PR machines dedicated to them just lap it up.

I was told he turned up at a shoot in Australia for I Can't Believe It's Not Butter with his bf. The very idea of an (allegedly!) gay but supposedly straight hunk with hoards of deranged frau fans flogging margarine is so wackily high camp and surreal you could stick it in a comedy without changing a thing. The two were (allegedly!) totally cool and blasé with the crew. Not like a certain married bisexual (?) hunk actor in the comical 80s crap Kangaroo Jack. It was the talk of the Oz cast and crew how super cautious the hotel arrangements were with 'the friend', who was put up in a hotel at the other end of the city. I love crew gossip. Especially the old timers. Nurse a mug of tea with a grizzled grip on break and it all comes out. They've seen it all.

His face always looked odd to me. The close-set eyes and low-set eyebrows. He never appealed to any gaylings or gay men that I knew of, his appeal was more to fraus in the lower socioeconomic class. Fraus whose foray into literature started and ended with romance novels. The type of basic fraus who’d go to male strip clubs.

His hair now is unfortunate. He’s committing the style sin that old/ aging former starlets make: wearing the same hairstyle and makeup they wore when they were at their hottest. But all that does is make them appear older and desperate to hang on to lost youth, reminding people that the hairstyle and makeup used to look good 20+ years ago.

Have to chime in about coloring grays once past a certain age. Toxic, permanent hair dyes shouldn’t be used on aging hair. But there are semi-permanent products out there that are safe. I’ve been going gray slowly since my mid-30s. I use a semi-permanent color, Arctic Fox, it’ll sort of like Manic Panic but with longer-lasting color and like MP, it actually conditions the hair because there’s no bleach or nasty ingredients. To get an ash-brown color, I mix bright yellow, purple, lavender-gray, and black. Leave it on for a whole day while I hang out at home. Lasts for about 2 weeks.

by Anonymousreply 164October 3, 2021 9:30 PM

I was early for a dinner party; one other guest was, too. She was talking about the problem of hair-coloring. As she saw it, it's dangerous to do it yourself, because it can turn your hair orange. She said you should always go to a pro for dyeing your hair.

Whether she was right or not I don't know, but then the next guest arrived: a pianist-singer of some note in the NYC club scene. He was aging and apparently felt he'd better darken his greying hair and didn't want to spend the money to go to a salon.

And his hair was orange.

I probably wouldn't have brought this up in the first place, except he annoys me with his Pollyanna attitude. At every such party, he tried to silence anyone who's criticizing someone with "But he/she is a friend of mine."

He'll do this about anyone--your ex-lover, Napoleon, Becky Sharp. Anyone. I can't stand Pollyannas and nobody has the right to silence someone else.

I don't know why aged women - often with thinning hair - insist on dyeing their hair pitch black. It only accentuates the difference between the color of their scalps, making their hair look even thinner.

Despite his Italian heritage, Fabio doesn’t go for the nation’s favorite starch: “I’m not really big into pasta but my father taught me a really simple and easy recipe. It’s the same as alfredo sauce but you don’t use cream. It’s just I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and parmesan cheese.” [Note: this has not been tested in the GQ kitchen.] That’s his go-to when he needs complex carbs, usually after a lot of cardio or dirt biking (seriously).

I used to see him riding around and flaunting his mane in a brand spanking new convertible Bentley in Beverly Hills. He screamed “kept man.” I honestly think that is how he made most of his money. Very wealthy men and/or women. But always got the gay vibe. Most straight kept men would have a Ferrari or a Porsche. He looked ridiculous. I am trying to remember the color. I think it was a tacky pale blue or something. Spotting him was like spotting Angelyne in her pink Corvette! Oh the good old days of LaLaLand.

Fabio may be many things, but he is not a kept man nor has ever likely been so.

He may same terribly camp now, but in his day Fabio was a hot property. Those cheesy "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" adverts made Fabio plenty of money.

As for the Bentley, it could have been leased, paid for out of Fabio's own money, or given as a gift by studio or something.

Actors long were given cars and other big ticket items as gifts by sponsors or whoever. Main ensemble cast of Will and Grace were all given a Porsche as gifts from studio. Think it was at beginning of second or third season, not sure.

I have a beautiful Lebanese friend that had been asked out on a date by him (L.A., early to mid 90’s). She wasn’t really attracted to him, but was piqued and went. When they got to his house, he asked her, “Do you want to see my motorcycle”. She went along and said sure….he escorted her to the kitchen, lo and behold, the motorcycle was there….

Then she remembered she had something important that she had to do at home and hot-footed it out there.

Also Michael B has hair plugs in the front (he’s also a jerk), , and Steven Segal is one of those creepy guys that try to pick up girls (my gorgeous black girl friend) with “I have a part for you in my movie, come to the studio after wrap” line. Said studio was completely empty and dark, and girlfriend was creeped out.

Clooney professionally is a dream to work with, but when the wife visits, it’s such a weird dynamic between the two- he dresses like a suburban dad, and she steps out of the car like Sonia Braga in “Kiss of the Spider Woman”.

Like Rock Hudson Fabio is one large slab of man. It would be nearly impossible for him to go out in public with another man and not be noticed.

No, if Fabio showed up at some taping or whatever with a man who clearly was his bf world would have known it by now. This is the age of internet and someone would have spilled that tea by now. Especially some jealous frau looking to settle a score because Fabio didn't give her the time of day.

Escorts? Rent boys or men? Maybe, but even then you're talking about a rarified select group who can keep their mouths shut about clientele they service.

Can see rumors about that more recent hot Italian model, Pietro Boselli. Just by the company he keeps alone is enough to cause loose talk.

Other than random posts on DL refering to a friend or friend of friend who tells of Fabio supposedly having this bf you don't hear a peep about it elsewhere. Fabio is out and about either alone, or with some random female.

Suppose Fabio could be like many other Italian men world over and gets his gay itch scratched discretely, but again come on; Fabio has been a celebrity for over thirty years now, someone would have had more concrete stories to tell.

Fabio may (and likely has) substantial assets like real estate that make up a bulk of his net worth. Of course net worth does not equal cash, only value of something if it were sold at a particular time.

To get an idea of Fabio's wealth you'd have to know what assets he is holding. Real estate records are public, but things could be held under a LLC or something other than his real name.

Fabio has been working in US for better part of over thirty years. A smart man would have plowed percentage of earnings into investments.

In addition to being drunk, I suspect Clooney was also enjoying the company of a male companion and that is why he was so angry about possibly being caught in the background of Fabio's pictures.

Same with the story about drunk George getting into a fight with Steve Wynn at one of the Wynn's hotels. The story was Wynn called George "molly coddled" which I'm sure he did but I would suspect the full story contains a few "f@ggot" from Wynn or something along those lines as he was there with Gerber and they were probably entertaining local trade.

This is why Fabio has so much money..

"I remember the day when I went to Immigration Service with Fabio for his green card interview. The INS staff was so excited that I had to return the next day to give out dozens of signed photographs signed by Fabio to all of his fans.

Numerous ethnic newsletters and even the Wall Street Journal published the news of Fabio getting his green card on the front page."

Guy goes to get his green card and an entire INS office of fraus and queens cream their panties.

A quote from one of the articles above: Throughout his extensive modeling career, Fabio encountered plenty of the most famous names in the business. In an interview with the Washington Post, Fabio shared his opinion when asked about Naomi Campbell. Fabio did not mince words and referred to her as the b-word.

Clooney and Fabio got into a scuffle at a Beverley Hills restaurant and had to be separated in 2007. Clooney, while dining with his girlfriend, suspected that Fabio’s nearby table was taking photos of them and flicked off the camera. Fabio went over to explain that they were taking pictures of each other, not Clooney. Fabio told Clooney he could teach him some manners.

Fabio probably was pissed that the great Naomi Campbell wasn't impressed with his manly advances. She probably barely gave him the time of day.
