Four For Friday - A New Ringmaster

He calls himself the ringmaster. He said it was because he used to organize a circus when he was working full-time. Not an actual circus, but definitely was juggling multiple performers and schedules and responsibilities. He did it well. There is no doubting that. He still calls himself the ringmaster now but says it is not just about juggling performers, but juggling who goes where and when and how can he get a piece. He also likes to make jokes about animals and whips which may have something to do with it too, but that is for a later day.

The thing is, all of you know him. Every single last one of you reading this site. I would say a fair share of the in line checkout readers of weekly magazines probably know who he is or at least the people he was wrangling. He likes to pretend he is still in the closet but all of you know better. The weekly checkout readers? He made sure none of that reached those pages. He still has the power to keep that out of there, but not off the websites. We all know the real story. He is not hiding it from his family. Maybe he is hiding it from the people in his past who frowned upon gay people and said they were all going straight to hell. Maybe he thinks he still needs their favor. Maybe he does. Maybe they are his best customers. I have no doubts that those people from his past life before he became famous are his customers. They certainly sampled that former A list actor he used to keep around back in the day. How do you think he became A list? Our ringmaster was a collector back then. He kept them close and traded them for favors to help out his charges. The people that built his empire. The thing is though that empire was built on him offering up underage teen boys to power players. He took the risks and the powers that be delivered. They ended up delivering for the boys too because that was part of the deal.

Our ringmaster liked that power. There was a time when he was too busy doing other things to collect. Oh sure, he would collect for himself but those were one night stands which often led to embarrassing situations and a lot of extortion. He was too trusting of his one night stands. After all, for years he had loyalty from his collection. He wanted something more like that not only for himself, but for others. There was always a demand, you just needed the right person and he was it. He still is it. He still has cache that others don't/ He drops a couple of names and possibilities for those young men and invites them to his place in LA or takes them in a private jet to Florida where they roll around in the sun and takes videos of them. He then offers them up. They don't get paid. Our ringmaster gets paid cash and the young men/teens get a chance at either working in the business or a chance at being kept by a successful man in business/entertainment. Of course our ringmaster samples all the products first for himself and is also known to make sure the boys report back to him any information he can use about their new benefactors.

It is because of a boy he provided many years to a man that he made his greatest wealth and the wealth of one of his empire builders. They live off that deal. The deal that saw the 15 year old from a small town in a very large state become the plaything for a very very wealthy man. The man was so happy he made a sweetheart deal that made millions for the ringmaster and his charges and left the 15 year old a college dropout at 19 and dead on the streets by 22.

Our ringmaster says it is the cost of doing business.

Ryan Seacrest?

sandybrook said...

Leo?

Tricia13 said...

Taylor Lautner for former A list actor?

totaji said...

Is this the same Clark, Spelling, Seacrest triumvirate?

Pamela Foti said...

Geffen

Tricia13 said...

Obviously Merl Griffin his mentor

SarahElizabeth said...

I think @totaji has it and @Tricia got it right re: Lautner.

Farmgirl said...

Clive Davis

Sara, Making It Work said...

Barry Diller

Sara, Making It Work said...

The magazine readers just know he's married to DVF.

Tricia13 said...

Not everyone here as Enty emphasized knows Barry Dikmer I wouldn’t think.

Tricia13 said...

*Diller

Sara, Making It Work said...

Seacrest still works full time. This sounds like somebody semi retired.

PoliticallyIncorrect71 said...

Clooney again? Pick a lower player...Geffen, Weinstein, Diller, Mooves...

DDonna Tarttty said...

I thought Killer Diller as I read this.

just sayin' said...

This is David Geffen (imho). He's been called a ring leader many times. Well known to have supplied young men, who he sampled first, to other powerful men, and in the case of the ones with screen potential like Tom Cruise, with women like Cher. This has been his hobby since back in the day and it continues. In the past he was too busy with other things to collect on his debts (producing music and movies.) He's been able to keep himself out of the tabloids (aside from a brief spate of rumors about marriage to Keanu Reeves). Enty would've mentioned Diller's marriage. And everyone here knows Geffen.

just sayin' said...

My only hesitation about Geffen is the word "New" (Ringmaster).

SDaly said...

Interesting story on Geffen.

SDaly said...

This does sound more like Seacrest to me, though. His rise to fame was as the "ringmaster" on AmericanIdol.

gauloise said...

Leonardo had that pedo manager, and it wouldn't surprise me if he had started as a procurer / groomer and worked his way up.

For a big star, there is something really mysterious about him, his romances , etc.

totaji said...

What is mysterious about him?

gauloise said...

Leonardo is currently producing a circus movie, truevine, if that has anything to do with it as a clue

Kimberley said...

My first thought was Geffen, but Seacrest is more likely due to being more generally known/famous (for American Idol, The Kardashians etc) by the checkout line people looking at weekly magazines.

trufflepig said...

I find this quite confusing tbh. Why would people from his past who 'frowned upon gay people' be his customers now? Or am I missing something?

trufflepig said...

It says 'a fair share of the in line checkout readers of weekly magazines probably know who he is or at least the people he was wrangling.' That doesn't sound like our ringmaster is an A-list actor. It must be someone famous, but not super famous.

This article, Merv Griffin: '70s Showbiz Ringmaster also points to Merv's protégé, Seacrest as the new ringmaster.

Carolyn said...

um ok so how does this blind gel with this one from April 2016 that supposedly positioned Griffin and Seacrest as the "good guys" vs Geffen and Singer as the "bad guys"? It also seemed to hint that Taylor Lautner was dropped by Geffen/Singer after they were done with him and Seacrest "saved" him. So...yeah. What? http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2016/04/today-blind-items-new-gay-mafia.html


Sara, Making It Work said...

Ugh
CDAN blinds are always contradicting each other.

J F said...

I read it as his former life was probably religious. Thus why being gay would send you str8 to hell AND be good closeted customers.

Only person I can think of is Tom Cruise who went to seminary school prior and still pretends to be hetero. But rest doesn't really fit...

Anonymous said...

I think this is Travolta.

Vik said...

+1 on Travolta

J F said...

Made his greatest wealth from pimping one boy @15 who died @22 (@ minimum 7+ yrs ago). So, not a mega rich guy like Griffen, Geffen or Spielberg. Seacrest still works fulltime and made his money off Idol.

Cody said...

@Justsaying Keanu Reeves married to Geffen? WTF!

Unknown said...

the boy - River Phoenix

canadachick said...

why did i have joe simpson in my head reading this? Wasn't he in some really religious church?? Obviously gay - wealthy- manager..>??

Unknown said...

Right.... Seacrest, who is on a million TV shows and has a radio show Monday through Friday, still has the time to orchestrate an elicit sex ring? Lol. The stuff is fun to read, but I truly don't know where they come up with it

InCatNeto said...

I would think Geffen except he's openly gay. This makes it sound like the ringmaster is not "out." Geffen could be the man he made a deal with years ago? But I don't think he's the ringmaster here. I want to go back and find that blind about the "deal" several of them made on a boat decades ago on the other side of the world. Anyone else remember that one?

InCatNeto said...

Never mind on the boat. I was getting it confused with another one I think. But I stumbled upon a few others. Could Gary Goddard be involved in this one?

AppleThief4Elliot said...

Geffen wouldn't have been tabloid fodder anyway. The Travolta stories have really been coming out (heh!) especially here for the last couple years. Plus; Private jet.
I say it's Vinny Barbarino.

I'm only here for the snark. Pffft with Kindness Blinds. said...

Tim Cook

trufflepig said...

Everyone knows who John Travolta is. Not just 'a fair share' of tabloid readers.

Unknown said...

Think it's Rande Gerber.

UniversalEnergy said...

It'snot Geffen. He's out of the closet publicly. It's Ryan. He learned from Merv G.

gigitastic said...

I thought the same thing- he’s connected to a lot of younger actors/ musicians

Thonker said...

Watch this blind get deleted when everyone forgot about it

Lissette Monzon said...

I thought so too. He has a private jet and a home in Florida. His family is deeply religious (until he converted to scio).

UniversalEnergy said...

Everyone does not know Geffen. Everyone knows Ryan Seacrest.

Easy Peasey said...

This sounded like Joe Simpson to me. Especially the part that mentions him photographing young men/women at his house. That’s definitely his thing. If you watch vanderpump rules there’s a scene where Tom Sandoval goes on a photo shoot with him and it mentions something about him ‘mentoring’ young male models

He was EP on both Jessica and Ashlee’s shows, which were on MTV (a Viacom company) so maybe that is the lucrative deal that made him $$$

bill cosby said...

It is Ryan I know several people who remember him hanging out at Merv's place when he first hit LA. Give the guy some credit - he went from nobody to buying a 50M dollar house. I used to know one of the girls he employed as a beard; name is Dominique Piek and she also worked for Chris Pine. Search their names together.

Easy Peasey said...

There is no way it’s Seacrest. He still works full time, and the language about wrangling his ‘charges’ doesn’t fit.

Joe Simpson was a pastor, I think, before Jessica hit it big. He managed hers and Ashlee’s careers, but not anymore (hence no longer working full time). The pastor thing is what he’s referring to the people from his past life possibly being customers, other closeted Christian men procured boys through him because he was trusted in the community already.

The real question is who was the bigwig that facilitated the big deal’ that made them all rich? Was it Redstone or Moonves? Maybe it had to do with Jess’ shoe/clothing line which is worth $1B?

Keen said...

Jerry Springer?

He had a movie called Ringmastder and his show could very well be called a circus.

AppleThief4Elliot said...

Springer is an intriguing guess. He came up in politics, then did journalism (actual journalism) for a while. I'm not sure I believe he's quite this cold blooded, or gathered that many favors along the way, but... interesting.

How about if we extend into sports. Could "ringmaster" refer to championship rings?
