Slow down!!! Officer Shamantha Cox has had just about enough of this blatant disregard for the Gossip facts, and she’s here to deliver another arresting dirt report only in these law abiding pages of Odyssey Magazine, Mary! What’s this?? More bad behavior from Justin Bieber!! The fading pop star urinated into a janitor’s mop bucket as he was exiting a nightclub in NYC, and the whole fiasco was caught on camera! As he was leaving, he sprayed cleaning fluid on a photo of Bill Clinton that was hanging on the wall and shouted obscene language at the pic!! Gee! It has come to Shamantha’s attention that Kimberly Stewart, daughter of rocker Rod Stewart, was seen making out with Taylor Swift’s ex, Harry Styles, member of the hit group One Direction! Kimberly claims the two are just friends, and it’s nothing serious since she is in her 30’s and Harry is barely 20!! Oh dear!! Everyone’s favorite train wreck, Amanda Bynes, is at it again!! She has already accused gorgeous Rihanna of being “ugly” and claimed she almost named her dog after the “Umbrella” singer. Very recently, Amanda was spotted in NYC wearing one of her trademark hideous blonde wigs, and when one of Harvey Levin’s TMZ henchmen approached her with a camera, she declared that handsome President Barack Obama and his picture perfect family were ugly! Sounds like Santa Claus should get Amanda a mirror for Christmas this year! Also, Amanda decided to wear a hideous bright blue wig to ODYSSEYMAGAZINE.NET • JULY 12–25, 2013
improving and he is expected to make a speedy recovery!! Neither Beyoncé Knowles or her sister, Solange, showed up to their own father’s recent wedding!! Well, it looks like another painful season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” is underway! The miraculously un-canceled reality show was taping in Malibu where Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian were seen filming a scene with toddler Mason! Also, Kendall Jenner was spotted shooting with her older brother, Brody Jenner, in Los Angeles, but no one knows if Kim Kardashian has been taping as well or if she’s in hiding with boyfriend, Kanye West, and their Wow!! Whitney Houston’s newborn, North West! And, it cute daughter, Bobbi Kristina, looks like Mamma Kris Jenner just scored her own talk show is all woman now and she’s engaged to get married!! Bobbi called “Kris”! The ageless beauty made an appearance announced her engagement on Jimmy Kimmel’s hit TV to hunky Nick Gordon on show to promote it! her Twitter!! Controversy has Oh boy! Tom Cruise’s surrounded the couple since ex-wife, Katie Holmes, was they started dating because seen out and about with some claim that Nick was Whitney’s adopted son and the adorable little Suri Cruise, as the mother daughter team romance seemed incestuous! were on a play date with some However, Bobbi claims her of Suri’s young friends at a mom never adopted Nick and NYC hotel! there is nothing creepy or unusual about their romance!! Oh no!!! Movie hunk George Clooney broke up with his long time girl, Stacy Kiebler!! According to media reports, the break up happened over the phone because George was thousands of miles away in Berlin shooting a film and Fight time!! It looks like Stacy was in Los Angeles!! Miley Cyrus has received Uh oh!! Randy Travis some scathing criticism from underwent a medical rap legend Jay-Z! Jay took to procedure to install a heart twitter to dis her new music pump in his left ventricle!! video and song that features Fortunately, doctors have Miley looking slutty (as usual) reported his condition is her latest court appearance, probably not the best choice when she is trying to convince the judge she’s clean and sob..er.... It’s official! Royal princess Kate Middleton has announced she will be delivering the heir to Queen Elizabeth’s throne in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London!!
and “twerking” her brains out! We love Madonna! Once again, the Queen of Pop is courting controversy with a questionable new photo shoot where she dons a Muslim hijab made out of metal chainmail! Obviously, it’s a statement against the oppression of women in Muslim countries, and already the singer has received criticism across the globe after she posted a pic of the photo shoot on her twitter!! Hmmm... LeAnn Rimes was spotted on the beach looking curvier than normal, and pregnancy rumors are running rampant! However, the songstress has denied that she is carrying hubby Eddie Cibrian’s child! Meanwhile, Eddie’s ex, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, Brandy Glanville, was seen in West Hollywood getting so drunk she couldn’t even walk! Cameras snapped the D-lister falling over with her panties showing and her top falling off as she left hotspot, The Abbey! Well, well, well! It looks like “Saturday Night Live” veteran, Chris Rock, is filming a new movie he wrote and is directing called “Finally Famous”! The film also stars Rosario Dawson, and on set sources say that Chris and Rosario have been inseparable both on and off camera, prompting rumors that the two have started dating!! Ok, Ok! Top cop Shamantha says you’re free to go and won’t be charged with any crimes, but remember if you want to stay out of trouble, please exercise your right to remain silent and read about all the best in gay nightlife, bars, restaurants, shopping, and, of course, gossip only in Odyssey Magazine, Mary!
GEORGE TENREIRO LGBT IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY
The LGBT community had much to celebrate this Fourth of July, including in the area of LGBT immigration rights. Odyssey interviewed George Tenreiro, an LGBT immigration attorney, who is experienced in asylum cases based on sexual orientation. We also interviewed one of his recent asylum clients, Da CucKoo, a Brazilian national who has reemerged on the NYC drag scene now that she is allowed to stay and work in the US. FIRST, MR. TENREIRO, PLEASE TELL US ABOUT THE DOMA DECISION AND WHAT IT ALL MEANS. The Supreme Court’s striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (“DOMA”) on June 27 was an historic decision because it went further than any previous Court decision in recognizing LGBT rights in general, and same-sex marriages in particular. The Court made clear in very favorable and broad language that every married same-sex couple is entitled to all of the same federal rights afforded to their married heterosexual counterparts. This includes immigration rights, and, so, for the first time, the US will begin to accept legal permanent resident (green card) petitions based on same-sex marriages. The future will tell us the full impact of the decision, but it clearly signals a new day for LGBT recognition and rights in the US. WILL SAME-SEX MARRIAGES BE RECOGNIZED IF THE COUPLE WAS MARRIED IN ANOTHER COUNTRY, FOR EXAMPLE, CANADA? Yes. WHAT ABOUT IF THE COUPLE WAS MARRIED IN ANOTHER ODYSSEYMAGAZINE.NET • JULY 12-25, 2013
COUNTRY OR STATE BUT NOW RESIDES IN A STATE THAT DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THESE MARRIAGES? Yes, the Government has confirmed that these couples are also eligible. WHAT ABOUT DOMESTIC PARTNERSHIPS? It remains unclear if the Court’s DOMA ruling covers domestic partnerships. To the extent possible, couples in domestic partnerships who are in a position to get married should do so, because the “marriage” label likely matters for immigration purposes. SO, FOR MANY LGBT INTERNATIONAL COUPLES, THEY NOW HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO IMMIGRATE TO OR LEGALLY STAY IN THE UNITED STATES? Yes. It is important to remember, however, that marriage alone does not automatically result in a green card. The US may still deny a green card for other reasons (for example, petitions may be denied because of a criminal record or if the applicant has been in the US illegally). This is why it is important to discuss one’s particular circumstances with an experienced immigration attorney. My firm is providing free consultation to any same-sex couple needing immigration assistance on a marriage petition. DOES THE COURT RULING AFFECT ASYLUM? No, that is a separate issue that does not turn on marriage. But for those who are single or not in a relationship with an American citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident (green card holder), asylum still provides a special immigration status with
work authorization and a path toward citizenship. Asylum is a form of immigration relief that is extended to those who are persecuted (intensely mistreated) or have a reasonable basis to fear persecution in their home country based on their sexuality. I have successfully represented individuals from several countries, including China, Brazil, Colombia, Cameroon, Jamaica, and Indonesia. WELL, DA CUCKOO IS ONE OF THOSE SUCCESS STORIES. TELL US, DA CUCKOO, WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU THAT YOU NOW HAVE ASYLUM? It means I am finally free. Free to pursue a career and life in a much more accepting and open community. For so long, I had to exist fearing for tomorrow and wondering if ever I would be able to feel whole and to feel like I mattered because conditions in Brazil, despite some of the hype, remain extremely difficult and dangerous for the LGBT community, especially for a drag performer. I was over the moon when I found out that I was granted asylum because it means a free and open life. And it means I was able to work on specific projects. For example, I just completed a music video for Forbidden Lover, which is the first single off my 2014 debut album entitled Da CucKoo & The Co. WHEN WILL THE RECORD BE AVAILABLE? Forbidden Lover will be available on iTunes on September 1, and the video will premiere on Vevo on the same day. DID YOU FEEL YOU WERE HELPED BY WORKING WITH AN ATTORNEY? Helped doesn’t even cut it. I owe the success of obtaining asylum solely to my lawyer. The process is quite complex and requires a good amount of research and factual data as well as a thorough understanding of the process. To have attempted to go at it alone would have meant I would have become overwhelmed, and
I probably would have failed to present myself with the confidence and certainty Mr. Tenreiro was able to provide to me. I strongly recommend that anyone seeking asylum needs to work with an experienced asylum attorney. GEORGE TENREIRO: I just want to add that it was a pleasure to work on Da CucKoo’s asylum application because I so admire Da CucKoo’s courage and spirit. Every case is unique and requires a different approach. For his application, we focused on how the everyday living conditions in Brazil are hostile despite some political LGBT advances, and we did so through different voices, including a statement in support of the application by the great Sherry Vine. TELL US ABOUT THE ONE-YEAR FILING DEADLINE ON ASYLUM, MR. TENREIRO? Many individuals who call me are ineligible for asylum because they have waited too long and have missed the oneyear filing deadline (though there are exceptions). The good news is that if the anticipated Immigration Reform Bill, that is being worked on in the Legislature, passes and remains in its present form, it will abolish the one-year filing deadline. Additionally, applicants who were previously denied asylum because of the deadline will be given an opportunity to reapply for asylum, including those individuals currently on Withholding of Removal. Unlike asylum, Withholding of Removal does not provide a path toward citizenship. If the one-year filing deadline gets abolished, it will be yet another positive immigration development that will help many LGBT individuals. Mr. Tenreiro of Baldassare & Mara, LLC (www.mabalaw.com) has a national immigration practice with offices in New York and New Jersey. He can be reached at 973.200.4066 or gtenreiro@ mabalaw.com.

“THE SONG IS COOL …BUT I THINK SHE LOOKS LIKE A LESBIAN. “ JUSTIN BEIBER
LADY BUNNY I’m a semi-regular contributor to Odyssey, and I have a new dance single out July 1st. Since they were a little short on staff-- and we all prefer long staffs -- during the busy Pride season, they decided to have me interview myself about the project. So here goes! WHY DECIDE TO START YOUR RECORDING RECORDING CAREER AT 50, YOU CRAZY BITCH? I’ve actually written and recorded music for 15 years, but haven’t really focused on a full-scale solo release with remixes until now. I’ve appeared in two duets with RuPaul in his last two albums, including the recent, “Lick It Lollipop”. But the new song, called “Take Me Up High”, better represents the kind of music I’d like to make on my own: soulful and rooted in classic house music. It’s a sound that I danced to in New York for decades until the dreaded top 40 disease starting forcing DJs (including myself) to play only what’s on the radio. I’m so sick of going into a club with more than one DJ in different rooms, and both are playing the same Rihanna song. After “Call Me Maybe”, “Gangnam Style” and “Harlem Shake”, I hardly even wanted to DJ any more. But then I said, “Stop whining and create some good music if you know so damn much.”
IS THE RECORD INDUSTRY REALLY LOOKING FOR THE NEXT OVERWEIGHT TRANSVESTITE? I THOUGHT THEY WANTED COOKIE-CUTTER GIRLS WITH WEAVES AND BARE MIDRIFFS? The dance world was always a place where outrageous characters like Kevin Aviance, Sylvester, Celeda or Divine could bypass industry gatekeepers. And dance music was one genre which often overlooked an artist’s image (or weight) because they sounded good. I hope these factors work in my favor. And if you like “Take Me Up High”, then request it! I know for a fact that if enough people request a song, a DJ will get it and add it to their sets. IS THE SONG COMICAL LIKE YOUR ACT? Not intentionally! The video will be campy with an outer space theme, but there aren’t actually punch lines. Writing music, like DJing, acting, performing and activism, is just another thing that I do. Not all people like every aspect, so some will enjoy the comedy and not the music. But if you like my DJing, then you may well like the song since it sounds like something I’d spin and twirl to. I reached out to some celebrity friends to provide me with quotes to help push the song and I got a very mixed bag of responses.
“WHO’S GONNA LISTEN TO SOME CRAZY BITCH WHO RUNS AROUND HIGH IN A BLONDE WIG ?” AMANDA BYNES ‘’ISN’T SHE WAY TOO OLD TO BE MAKING DANCE MUSIC?’’ CHER “NOBODY WANTS TO SEE A DRIED UP OLD BLONDE IN HER 50’S SHAKING HER ASS TO A DANCE SINGLE!” MADONNA “YOU CALL THIS SINGING?” YOKO ONO “MAYBE THEY CAN GIVE HER A MAKEOVER OR SOMETHING BEFORE SHE TOURS?” SUSAN BOYLE “PEOPLE ARE NEVER GOING TO TAKE HER MUSIC SERIOUSLY UNLESS SHE STOPS WEARING THOSE RIDICULOUS OUTFITS.” LADY GAGA “MY HUSBAND CAN’T STOP DANCING TO IT!” MICHELLE BACHMAN “IF THIS SONG WAS A MONTH LONG… I COULD DANCE MY ASS OFF TO IT! “ KIM KARDASHIAN “I’M JUST AMAZED SHE TOOK THE COCK OUT OF HER MOUTH LONG ENOUGH TO SING THIS!” PAM ANDERSON

ALLUSIA ALUSIA Hey now, kittens! Come over here and let me yell at you for a minute about some hot new things happening in the mean streets of West Hollywood. First up is a fresh’n’fancy-free new night at Micky’s every Tuesday from 10pm-2am! What do you get when you mix a pack of lawless, f*ck the rules drag and burlesque entertainers with the beats of resident DJ Johnny Jewel, and my particular brand of Quirk‘n‘Twerk hosting on the mic? You get WHORE HAUS! Helmed by punk rock mistress of the night Saint Peter D’vil, Whore Haus embodies her no-holds-barred approach to just plain old having a good time. Come as you are or how you want to be. Her tagline of “No gender, no rules, no religion” sums it all up perfectly. DJ Johnny Jewel consistently crafts the perfect soundtrack to the Freak show, displaying quite a knack for knowing just what his crowd needs to hear to take the party to the next level. Ranging everywhere from old-school punk to modern pop to industrial to everywhere in between, he’s got my vote for President. The rotating cast of performers rounds out the night quite nicely. Varying from theater trained to punk rock “I’m going to roll on the floor and make you eat it” to burlesque hotties to classic drag performance, we’ve got something for everyone. Next on my list is one of my favorite new shows: Drag Happy Hour at Lola’s, every Sunday starting at 4pm. Hosted by Misty Violet, she brings her brand of accidentally on purpose dumb girl humor to the table and it works every time. Misty seems to never be quite sure what the words coming out of her mouth mean, which results in her malapropos monologues never failing to leave me and the rest of the audience gasping hysterically on the floor. She brings that same “Where Am I” humor to her performances and her “dance moves”. Not saying anything, but you should see what she can do with a shake-weight. Imogene Autry is her weekly powerhouse knock’em’dead performer and co-host. Imogene brings such a light and energy to each of her performances that you simply can’t help but fall in love with her. They bring in a rotating cast of girls, giving the show a lil’ extra dash of spice for sensational pleasure! P.S. Try the Misty Violet Cocktail. I hear it tastes like purple and shame. Stay dangerous, loves! ALLUSIA ALUSIA ODYSSEYMAGAZINE.NET • JULY 12-25, 2013

DJ RICARDO’S TOP 3 ELECTRONIC ALBUMS OF SUMMER 2013
1) DJ Ricardo! Presents Out Anthems 8 (Ultra Music) Yes, a shameless plug for my own album. However, I can’t ignore the bestselling Pride collection from America’s largest dance label specifically formulated for that summer beach trip or BBQ. I designed this mix to be a virtual electronic dance music buffet that will surely please everyone at the party. New tracks from today’s dance super stars like Deadmau5, Kaskade and Wolfgang Carter are blended with remixed classics from legendary dance pioneers like Loleatta Holloway, First Choice and Ultra Nate. Plenty of tracks you already know and some that you have yet to discover. Think Fire Island Disco meets Ibiza with a Latin twist, and in essence you have Out Anthems 8.
2) Sasha- Invol<3r (Ministry of Sound) Progressive house pioneer Sasha is all grown up now, and “Invol<3r” is his most polished, mature album yet. Sasha is famous for taking you on a journey with music, and “Invol<3r” is a ticket to bliss. Just in time for the summer, this is the album you want to pop in when the sun is setting, or while taking that long awkward drive back from the beach. Sasha immediately starts our journey with dreamy ambient landscapes which culminate into luscious vocals with lyrics like “you blow up the moon, just to turn the tide”. “Invol<3r” is thought provoking music that is mellow yet provocative while also being very sexy. Every single track on this album has been reworked and remixed by Sasha himself in order to weave you in and out of the tracks flawlessly. He even included an ambient “beatless” mix of the entire album, perfect for that afternoon summer snooze or a romantic drink at sunset.
DJ Ricardo! has mixed all 8 editions of Out Anthems series, available on iTunes. Currently, he holds NYC residencies at Monster Bar, Bartini & Vandam. ODYSSEYMAGAZINE.NET • JULY 12-25, 2013
3) Daft Punk- Random Access Memories (Columbia) This was one of the most anticipated albums of the year, and first week sales gave them their first #1 album on Billboard Top 100. However, once people listened to the album, the anger over lack of dance friendly tunes began to grow: “What the hell is this? It’s so slow! Is this even dance music?” No people, it’s an electronic album, and a beautiful one! That’s right! While the first single, “Get Lucky” feat. Pharrell Williams is the summer dance song of 2013, the rest of the album is quite different. Perhaps, a huge ‘fuck you’ to todays “EDM” pop sound which Daft Punk helped create, and has now become stale. “Random Access Memories” is eclectic and diverges from the typical “Daft Punk” sound. More of an album to listen to when going through a break up at the end of a summer fling. Mostly produced by legendary dance ‘godfather’ Giorgio Moroder, cuts on this album remind me of musical interludes and ballads from 1980’s “Flashdance” soundtrack, which he produced. It’s genius, unexpected, and takes a few listens, but please don’t expect to listen to this album at the gym!
BY MRS. HELLO
Okay, hello. Some popular phrases have always struck me wrong, sometimes leaving me with worry and concern: “Is that the way people really feel?” If so, we need to start looking at things differently. A couple of those doozies: “Dog eat dog” which equates to aggression/competition; “same ol’ same ol” which could equate to complacency or disengagement. These are troubling ways of viewing our place in the world as well as the world’s place within us. So, it is out of recent rapid series of planetary alignments that provoke and unsettle, creating in some cases an invariant chaos and discord, that we now see exactly what is to appear. That’s what I would call a reinstatement of decency, of human awareness, that of a kind and thoughtful mutuality as a people. From simple and easy matters of just including others, and taking opportunities to sit and address concerns of those in our sphere, we have once again given over to the shaping of evolvement, and as the Beatles said, “Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces... the ice is slowly melting...here comes the sun.” Here comes the sun. Indeed. I know some of you took time out to celebrate the Nation’s Birthday. Guess you didn’t know you would be jamming ‘til the break of dawn, but why stop a good thing, especially when we earned it? Read your horoscope. Kiss someone. Just be good to me. After all, you’re all stars. ARIES MAR 21–APR 19: A good way to address the days and weeks ahead is to “take your passion and make it happen.” Relationships are positive for you now. The value you place on values will become, well, valuable. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and the eyes of another, so stay your ground and watch. Love will grow. CYNTHIA NIXON/ DOUG GOTTERBA TAURUS APR 20–MAY 21: The good fortune of recent times, as far as your concentration on goals and professional pursuits, has resulted in another layer of shine and confidence for you, something very few can resist. So watch the lines form and go about your way as you choose. Don’t lose sight of work, but it is summer after all, so make it a hot one. PETER RAUHOFER/ SHEMAR MOORE ODYSSEYMAGAZINE.NET • JULY 12-25, 2013
If you desire the advantage of knowing how and when to make the best moves you can in your life, Mrs. Hello would love to assist you with personalized Astrological guidance. The cost is nominal, the benefit great, and your confidence assured. Address interest in these services, as well as any other astrologically inclined correspondence to: email@example.com and be sure to include “Mrs. Hello” in the subject line.
GEMINI MAY 22–JUN 21: Catching any mistakes now will make it much easier down the road. The Universe is about to make up for lost time with you, so you’ll be a busy one. Just be sure you know what it is you really want this time, as it looks as if some returns are to be yours! Make a little space; you will soon need it. DUSTIN LANCE BLACK/ERIC CHRISTIAN OLSEN CANCER JUN 22–JUL 22: You will be seeing a powerful added energy when you join up with others, making partnerships, particularly related to professional endeavors; you will be better prepared than you have been in almost a year. Just notice how those in the background are still there. Maybe bring them into the light along with you. CAZWELL/BRIAN AUSTIN GREEN LEO JULY 23–AUG 23: Staying cool, calm and collected is your ace in the hole at this time. You will be given challenges, but making a little space between you and the rest of the world should benefit you in having the time to select the right decisions to move further forward. Have fun this weekend. Oh, and don’t worry about the plants! YVES SAINT LAURENT/KEVIN SPACEY VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 22: Looks can be quite deceiving, including the looks you get from others. Be sure to include members of your team, and go slow when it comes to newcomers who enter the picture around the third week of the month. The caution flag rises up when the one you thought to be stable turns to be more under the table. Watch your wallet. TOM FORD/ JONATHAN TAYLOR THOMAS LIBRA SEP 23–OCT 23: We all know that you are a favorite when you show up, but try to emerge from the background and take a place right down front. This is not so much a competition, but rather a show case. The phone works both ways as well - try it! MATT DALLAS/BRUNO MARS
SCORPIO OCT 24–NOV 22: “Full steam ahead and don’t look back” is the outlook for the next month or two. Even if everything isn’t resolved, there is more to come right around the bend. Some things may have to be cut or at least dealt with at another time or by someone else. A getaway is a good idea for the first of the month. ADAM BOUSKA/EVE SAGITTARIUS NOV23–DEC 21: Like Elvis, you are about to be, “all shook up”, but don’t let this be a bad thing, maybe just a little unsettled for a while. This transformation will close the door on situations and people you’ve been struggling with. On the reverse side, things look and feel much better and you will no longer need to wait so long for your turn. LADY SOVEREIGN/AARON CARTER CAPRICORN DEC 22–JAN 20: Looks as though you will be once again be visiting certain situations with certain people, ones that you would rather dismiss altogether. Keep your mind on resolve, not dissolve. Sometimes just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t really there, right?! As crazy as it seems, you have a secret admirer. SARAH PAULSON/LOUIS TOMLINSON AQUARIUS JAN 21–FEB 18: The ideas you brought to the table some time back are coming into being. Although this is no news to you, you will need support staff, so be sure to let others in on the state of the state. This way, should you need a hand or two, it won’t be too late if you ask. This time things will go great, but don’t let go until you can see what shall be. August will be worth it. SHERMAN HELMSLEY/TAYLOR LAUTNER PISCES FEB 19–MAR 20: Being there - that is something even those talking with you would argue you have not been. Put down the pen sometimes and look around at all the creative advances you have made? This month for everyone’s good, take stock; focus on home, artistic pursuits, and just being there. VICTOR GARBER/KELLAN LUTZ

Was CONNOR KLINE shot in the ass in NYC? Does Connor Kline have a boyfriend? Is Connor Kline’s ass insured for a million dollars? Does Connor Kline have a new bottoming scene for Hot House coming out? The answers: NO, YES, NO and YES - but we’ll talk about all that good shit later! We all know that porn stars love to share every aspect of their life: both personal and public. If you’re a porn star and not on Twitter not only is that considered social suicide but it’s also considered sabotage for your fans to get to know you and interact with you. Believe it or not that hasn’t been much porn drama going on lately; instead all the action has been going down on Twitter! CONNOR KLINE (@ConnorKline) is the most talked about and most likable porn star in the industry right now! Once a Sean Cody model he has worked his ass off (literally) for virtually every mega studio out there showing off his abs, tall stature and BORN THIS WAY tattoo across his back. ODYSSEYMAGAZINE.NET • JULY 12-25, 2013
While Connor is usually a happy-go-lucky kind of guy, in last two weeks he has been publicly Tweeting about a certain pain in his ass! “Emergency Room Visit While in NYC =( I’m hurtin bad,” he Tweeted to his fans and porno peers. Was it a gunshot? No, no it wasn’t a gunshot - but he sure enjoyed teasing his almost 23,000 followers that it was. Instead it originated as a simple ingrown hair but later turned into a mediumsized infection that grew into a bigger infection that had to be drained and operated on: OUCH! Thankfully Connor said that the infection will likely NOT leave a scar - which is a good thing because if he could insure his ass, I’m sure he could for at huge chunk of change. Connor also is OFFICIALLY dating Cockyboys Exclusive model Jake Bass (@FuckingJakeBass) the two have been very flirtatious with each other over Twitter and everyone has picked up that these two have been in “porno-love,” however the Tweets are disgustingly cute. “Watching
NASCAR with my boyfriend @ FuckingJakeBass :) ... never thought I’d say that lol,” said Connor. And this love doesn’t seem one-side, the sweet little punk Jake Bass is also crushing on Connor judging from his Tweets but if you ask my opinion I don’t know what to think of these two: I’m just not convinced yet. Lastly, Connor is back at work for Hot House filming yet another movie with the legendary company, directed by porn star turned director CHRISTIAN OWEN. “Heatstroke” was filmed in Palm Springs and stars LANDON CONRAD, JIMMY DURANO, BRANDON JONES, JOHNNY RYDER, TRENTON DUCATI, and of course CONNOR. Connor’s scene is with Trenton and I can tell you it’s pure porn GOLD seeing Connor bent on all fours taking it doggy style from daddy Ducati! Side note: Connor also filmed with Trenton Ducati for the Lucas Entertainment movie “Kings of New York,” which is a must see as well! I guess the world loves Connor! Till next time....
