Today's Blind Items - Banned

It turns out there is another actor who has made himself unwelcome at certain hotels and spas. Much like John Travolta, this actor is also closeted and also enjoys the touch of male masseurs. Our actor is an Academy Award winner and is one of the better actors of the past two decades. He can easily move between movies, and the stage and that almost television thing. Apparently on a recent trip to Santa Barbara he stayed at Bacara which is an extremely nice resort on the beach. After his most recent visit where he succeeded in his quest for relief from a male masseur with the promise of a very large tip he was told by the management that he is not welcome any longer at the hotel.

Nice one, Riven!

Yep, what they said.

sandybrook said...

Easy peasy :(

AJ said...

This absolutely reads like Spacey with his movies, plays & now netflix show.

Sadie said...

Spacey - it is unanimous

Seven of Eleven said...

"That almost television thing". Yup.

It's been mentioned before, though, Spacey isn't closeted, he just doesn't talk about his personal life. E has before mentioned something along the lines of him being a bit rough in the saddle. I love ******SPOILER****** Kaiser, though, and I'm not convinced he's a tool.

The almost television thing gives it away.

sugarbread maker said...

But if he did as he promised and left a big tip then masseur has double standards non??

Seven of Eleven said...

@FSP

Sherry said...

Sugartits I was thinking the same thing. If he succeeded then why was he asked not to come back. Makes no sense to me either.

sugarbread maker said...

If masseur didn't want to he shouldn't have but doing it then taking big tip and ratting him out seems trifling non??

Tricia Shaw said...

Kevin spacey isn't closeted, he simply hasn't declared anything

William Hurt-oscar kiss of a spider woman
Theatre veteran
Netflix -Mob Doctor

Tricia Shaw said...

Forgot..Tony for children of a Lesser God

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Your time to shine, Riven! As the big winner, you get to watch the boring video of the day! ;)

RivenIsAHasBeen said...

Simple: The masseur likely performed the extra bit to keep his job (because it's a major Hollywood star - intimidation by power and money). However, he likely then reported it to management and possibly (especially if he did not want to do it cause that's coercion) threatened to sue for sexual harassment if the company didn't do anything about it. Ergo, actor got his happy ending and the masseur got to keep his job. Best resolution for the company too. They lose the income but keep their prestige and reputation.

Under rug swept.

Not Hugh Jackman.

Still very much in love with his best friend - his wife.

Hurt didn't get a Tony for "Children of a Lesser God". He was in the movie only. John Rubinstein played the part on Broadway.

Hurt only did one Broadway play and that was back in the 80's. The rest was off Broadway before that.

His reputation is womanizer. I've never heard an inkling that he's closeted.

Spacey is still the best choice.

crila16 said...

This is easy peasy.

meme deemed said...

by the way. just found this and wanted to share - further re: Jackman.

Shelly Shell said...

Spacey is also the guess for the guy who's nasty to his boy toys & keeps them in the hotel room all day.

rajahcat said...

alas Spacey

thus no happy ending........

Gayeld said...

So, is that your secret plan to keep others from guessing?

Tricia Shaw said...

@ trudi..theatre vet is inclusive of off broadway, to my knowledge he won Tony for COALG, my bad if not.

He isn't a womanizer, he was is/ masongynistic. He lives or lived much of his adult life in grand view/ piedmont ny, where I grew up

Tricia Shaw said...

*piermont.
Reclusive and, ambiguous are 2 words I would use to describe him..

That is what I align with "closeted" ..if Kevin spacey is still closeted in the general public(or enties) opinion....than lboy George is straight IMHO

rajahcat said...

well I see your point there Tricia but what about that stuff with Marlee Matlin?

wasn't there some stuff about abuse going on there?

if he is closeted then he is really deep

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Hadn't crossed my mind, Gayeld, but that is pretty genius.

Min Pin Girl said...

For some reason Anthony Hopkins came to mind (because of his stage work). The only other would be Gary Oldman (also because of his stage work). You want to "service Hannibal Lector or the guy Hannibal fed to the pigs? I thought I'd think outside the box.

texas rose said...

So now he is banned at this hotel as well as a number of restaurants where he harassed the male waitstaff.

auntliddy said...

I could see Spacey for this. He has admitted in the past he is not always very nice, its a real struggle for him.

fancyscreenname said...

could have just hired the guy "off the clock"...

cheap shit...

The Dude said...

I'll go with Alec Baldwin ftw

Tricia Shaw said...

@raja...he had a relationship with her..a real one
Kevin has been with women too....a long ago ex of mine, never admitted it, but they were more than friends...and he heavily indicated spacey is bisexual, which other blinds have alluded to.

So again, sexuality, being a spectrum, is cryptic and obtuse....but "closeted, to me, still means someone who is not living out loud, and after Kevin s indescretions in Hempstead heath(gay park) in London, etc...I just don't up get the association...there's no shroud of mystery there, ya know? He just don't give a toss ..and was, lovely actually, from what ine member of him at the time.

Tricia Shaw said...

But people change..he definitely grew a tad, lass-gregarious with success and age.

Snootches said...

Enty calling out JT as closeted...ballsy and me likes

trudi said...

William Hurt never won a Tony. Period.

I'll agree with you on his anger issues, which are well known.

Tricia Shaw said...

As I stated, I was perhaps erroneous about the Tony..however he did win an Obie..Off by a couple letters..
And an oscar, which this blind was originally, about

LeeKay said...

Sexuality is cryptic and obtuse?

Tricia Shaw said...

Can be cryptic an obtuse..., not everyone puts it up there on a jumbotron, ya know

LeeKay said...

I think only people can be obtuse?

FS said...

This is Kevin Spacey, who is 'closeted' if you ask the "flyover" types - the people who get all their news from the magazine rack, who buy everything People sells, who think Kim and Kanye's marriage is real. Yes, there are a lot of people who know about Spacey, but there are probably 10x as many who don't.

Spacey is such an odd case to me, I think he has a danger fetish or something. It seems he has a fairly large stable of men who want to be with him for the cash or whatever, but perhaps he prefers the challenge of the chase.

Tricia Shaw said...

Right, well, splitting hairs a bit, people are in control/charge of their sexuality, or perception, thereof, ..that was my point
Certain people will only let you know what they want you to know about it: hence= obstruction of actual truly! complete truth etc

Tricia Shaw said...

@FS I agree with you 100% ..he is , seemingly, undetected by a certaindemographic..but dunno , I mean anyone who reads anything other than national geographic(which doesn't matter cuz he is never in rags),
Or doesn't think his mannerisms, public indescretions, and blatant , if not, provocative, way of meandering around the subject , is the answer to the burning question...well please.....what must he do..a TIME cover like Ellen.."Yep, I ,Kaiser Soza AM"..

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

@TriciaS. HOLD DA PHONE!

Ur ex was a man who had a relationship with KSpace, or ur ex was a woman who had KSpace??
(Either way, dats some good tea there, ya know?)

Tricia Shaw said...

@ SMF....
Male...ex BF/casual side...but I was nutso for him...about 20 years ago....he wa a waiter in NYC, where I lived/am from thereabouts...and yeah..the restaurant is a tthtr district/celeb friendly place and Kevin and he got aqua intend there...and tho he never said, Jn a female intuitive way, I know they had a thing...(always wondered bout Jon(was his name)

Tricia Shaw said...

And when I asked..is Kevin gay..cuz even 20 years ago I presumed he was!!! Duh, ..his answer was the eve cryptic(hence my comment earlier)
"He'....sexual".

Tricia Shaw said...


I'll never forget it...lol
I felt like a side dish .....

Basil said...

Spacey is the only one that fits, and yes, to most of the general public he is considered straight. Still not sure why he would be banned from a hotel if it was consensual. Dunno. Must be hard being a masseuse because the expectation is that you will give happy endings.

Kat has left the building said...

Not being open about his gayness is the same as being closeted

Tricia Shaw said...

No, I think the lack of candor he has RE: his-homosexuality, has more to do with discretion , and a combination of ambivalence and rebellion

Aoife said...

Spacey was my first thought.

Aoife said...

When I think of Spacey I think of the "Family Guy" where Stewie runs naked through a department store screaming he's just escaped from Kevin Spacey's basement. Spacey never sued.

*pseudo reporting

The Enquirer said...

Kevin Spacey is not closeted! Everyone knows he's gay. What does "he likes it rough in the saddle mean" though? He's into bdsm? He's a bottom? I don't get the reference.

Kat has left the building said...

Omg I need a sandwich

Tricia Shaw said...

@ enquirer..exactly...cuz he's as closeted as liberace and his chihuahua were..lol

Tricia Shaw said...

Kat. Stop teasing us..when will you actually LEAVE the bldg? I want to be sure my happy hour invites go out correctly

@Tricia Shaw-hi from a former Nyackian.

Why not call an escort instead of picking on the hotel staff?

Paul Giamatti?

di butler said...

Spacey isn't closeted to us, but I guarantee you, the vast majority of ppl in the world have no clue. If you mention Travolta is gay, or Will Smith is gay and a Co$, the ppl who will be shocked will surprise you. Y'all are forgetting how clueless most ppl are.
