WHAT???? The book, The Thin Thirty, by Shannon Ragland, chronicles Hudson's involvement in a 1962 sex scandal at the University of Kentucky involving the football team. Ragland writes that Jim Barnett, a wrestling promoter, engaged in prostitution with members of the team, and that Hudson was one of Barnett's customers
Roch Hudson enjoyed the services of the University of Kentucky team.

Rock and a group of his gay pals used to go to Kentucky to a hunting lodge one of them owned. It is said that Lee Majors was the usual "entertainment" for the group. They say Majors was "had" by those guys more ways than most people can count.
I read a biography of Rock after he had died. He would only go with men who looked like they were completely straight. He was very prejudiced against effeminate gays. He also favored big blonds who had mustaches. There were periods when Rock would go without partaking of any hidden delights for extended periods of time, and even squire women around, but then he would call one of his buddies at some point and just say "I need a boy, and fast".

The Hudson/Nabors marriage rumor/scandal (perpetrated by 3 old queers who thought they were being funny and because they were mad at either Rock or Nabors about something) is the very reason Jim Nabors moved lock, stock, and barrel to Hawaii.

But you couldn't make up what a Louisville author, Shannon Ragland, has written about the shameful period when Charlie Bradshaw coached UK and so brutalized the UK football players that all but 30 quit the team. Shortly after Bradshaw returned to Lexington to coach his alma mater, I had a conversation with him in front of the Wildcat Bowling Lanes next to Memorial Coliseum. He said that Dr. Ralph Angelucci, the team physician and a member of the UK trustees, told him that the first thing the coach had to do was run off the gays, including actor Rock Hudson, who were dating some of the football players. You read that right. Ragland has done thorough research. I told him that his book could be a good textbook for use by colleges. It should be required for football players planning to be coaches. --Earl Cox - Louisville Voice Tribune%0D

The pictures of the "Thin Thirty" are pictures of the thirty guys who remained on the team after Coach Bradshaw assaulted nearly 50 players off the original 88 man squad. SO Rock wouldn't have had any of those guys.
I wish you guys had more juicy stories, stories that could also be authenticated. I have the feeling a lot of the talk on here is wishful thinking or just shit out of your ass.
Also would like to here more about what people think about college sports players involved in gay sex scandals. I'm a gay college athlete but I honestly haven't had any experiences close to like the ones listed in the book... never even dated a guy. I guess being white is the number 1 factor in being an attractive gay prone to lots of hot sex. I guess I'm probably going to have to convert to straight ha.

Ages and ages ago Tennessee Williams and Rock Hudson were neighbors who had adjoining back yards.
Tennessee Williams really liked the statue which overlooked the adjoining backyards and wanted to claim it for himself.
Rock Hudson did not really give a shit, but decided to see how far Tennessee Williams would go with things. He teased Tennessee Williams about it because he knew Tennessee Williams would eventually run off with the statue (which he did because he was just a renter after all).
So, they worked out a compromise in that the statue faced Tennessee Williams backyard for half the week and faced Rock Hudson's backyard for the other half of the week. If either one of the fellows threw a garden party or what have you, they would flip a coin to see where the statue would face.

Hudson was tall and ruggedly handsome, representing at the time the epitome of overt male heterosexuality. Hudson would soon become a regular visitor at Lakewood, Barnett sending his car to fetch Hudson from the Cincinnati Airport. His visits were no secret to young women in Lexington, who drove by Lakewood at slow speed, hoping to get a look at their famous visitor. Barnett knew more than the girls and what better draw for Lakewood was there than Rock Hudson? If he called and invited a player to attend a party, who could resist such an invitation? He was a movie star, a worldly and virile bon vivant. As remarkable as it was, Hudson quickly became involved with the UK football team and engaged in sexual relationships with them. At this juncture, the manipulation that led to the players prostituting themselves took a darker turn. They began to recruit new players. At least one player has indicated he received a bounty of sorts for getting certain players (hoopsters too) to come visit Lakewood. For unknown reasons, Lonnie and Jim targeted particular players. Through their already chosen players, they would let it be known that a prospect, a football player, was highly prized in their eyes. It would be just as simple as a footballer being told that they (the “they” being Lonnie and Jim) thought he was cute. In the fall of 1960, John Helmers, a swift halfback from Owensboro, was high on their list. He was handsome and wellspoken. Helmers was a born leader in any crowd and would later be a decorated JAG officer and successful lawyer in his hometown. It started innocently enough or so Helmers thought. One evening at the football dorm, he was told there was a call for him on the communal phone at the end of the hallway. He didn’t believe it when he was told Rock Hudson was on the line and wanted to speak to him. Helmers replied, “Bullshit.” It would have been as unthinkable as today if a freshman footballer picked up the phone and Tom Cruise was calling. Helmers couldn’t conceive that a Hollywood movie star wanted to talk to him. But he trudged down the hall and picked up the phone. It was Rock Hudson. Rock Hudson, the star of stars, was on the phone and wanted to talk to him, a freshman halfback from Owensboro. Hudson asked him to visit the Lakewood house. Helmers, still a bit naive, accepted the offer. The Lakewood house was nice, there was no doubt, but it didn’t take Helmers but a single visit to realize what it was and that it wasn’t for him. He never went back. But at Christmas break that year, Helmers received a most unusual greeting card in the mail. It was from Hudson himself and included $200 in cash. The card invited Helmers to give him a call when he was back in Lexington after the break.

One night this freshman came into Kitten Lodge and announced to his roommate, “Guess what I did? I got a blowjob from Rock Hudson.” It was said in a joking, almost manner-ofa-fact way.

Helmers. Worth $200.00. How much would that be in 60s money?

Pic @R216. Dad knew what was happening. Mom may have been oblivious but Dad had seen some of the world in the military and knew what a 37 year old "bachelor" wanted from his strapping 21 year old son.

I'm not sure it would be that unthinkable *wink*

I cracked up at that, R265. Such an ironic choice.

[quote]Any rumors about Rock Hudson and young Harrison Ford?
I've never heard one word about that. Any details?

R261, That's John Helmer, an Australian football player, not John Helmers.

There were rumors in the 1970s that Rock was fucking Roman Gabriel of the L. A. Rams, no pun intended.

A quick look at Roman Gabriel's IMDB page shows a brief acting career, including a role in "The Undefeated"(1969), which starred Rock Hudson and John Wayne.

R216 I thought the same thing. Mom is ecstatic and Dad has a polite, strained smile. He knew what was up.

R269 Just a mention I read on another board awhile ago about photos existing of Ford sitting on the edge of a pool with several other handsome young men supposedly during one of Hudson's "beauty parties". It would have been sometime in the mid to late 1960's. I was hoping someone here might know more. Ford has always pinged a bit to me and seemed like the type who would do whatever it took to get his career moving.

Harrison Ford did a lot of carpentry work for celebrities in Los Angeles before "Star Wars".
