Hot love goes cold for erotic duo Jesse Santana and Guy Parker
It was a short-lived fairytale love story. Earlier this year, Dallas Voice featured local adult video hunks Jesse Santana and Guy Parker as our "Hot Love" Valentine’s Day sweethearts.
Now they’ve broken up.
Fans initially became suspicious after Santana changed his MySpace profile status from "in a relationship" to "single."
Santana recently told Dallas Voice that it’s true —he and Parker are dunzo. Santana just returned from Europe and said, "We [needed] time apart to see where our lives take us."
What went wrong?
The couple had been experimenting with having an open relationship. However, aside from having hot sex on camera, Santana wanted to be exclusive. Santana also says he likes older, more experienced men.
While they’re both back on the market, it looks like Parker and Santana are being civil about dissolving their romantic ties. Santana says he plans on "growing old" with his former lover.
Texan Tom Ford casts Moore and Firth in ‘Single Man’
Austin native fashion whiz Tom Ford is making his entree into filmmaking with a screen adaptation of legendary gay author Christopher Isherwood’s novel "A Single Man." Now the project has begun to line up an exciting cast.
Colin Firth will star as a gay British professor in Southern California, whose partner has just died suddenly. Matthew Goode — seen recently as the bisexual Charles Ryder in "Brideshead Revisited" and soon to co-star in "Watchmen" — plays the young, recently departed lover. And Julianne Moore will appear as one of the professor’s friends.
The film takes place over a single day, with the professor trying not to let his loss interfere with his daily routine. "A Single Man" should grace the screen by the end of 2009.
Elton, Jagger, Bowie may form Olympic supergroup
One openly gay and two at least gay-adjacent kings of rock and roll are discussing plans to form a once-in-a-lifetime "supergroup" to perform at the 2012 Olympics. Elton John, David Bowie and Mick Jagger — didn’t Bowie’s wife once claim she caught the latter two in bed together? — are exploring the possibility of performing together in London at the next summer games.
Jagger, who’s already set to sing with the Rolling Stones for the Olympics’ opening ceremonies, wants to expand the show to include John and Bowie, as well as Phil Collins, Sting, Van Morrison, David Gilmour and Jimmy Page. Even though the collective age of such a combo would hover around 500, the results would still have to sound better than Jagger and Bowie’s dreadful cover of "Dancin’ in the Streets" from 1985’s Live Aid.
Bravo sews up more fashion reality
In its ongoing quest to be gayer than Logo, Here and Clay Aiken put together, the Bravo cable network has announced three new fashion-based shows for its slate of programming. While Bravo may be losing the very popular (and extremely queer-centric) "Project Runway," the channel has a similar competition for fashionistas, "The Fashion Show," in the works, with November casting calls for contestants taking place in L.A., New York, Miami and Chicago.
Combining "Runway" with "Dancing with the Stars" might yield "Celebrity Sew-Off," another new Bravo show that will have famous people designing and creating their own garments. And then there’s "Fashionality," a new show featuring New York’s fiercest cultural icons discussing the week in fashion and pop culture. It’s TV you’ll have to dress up to watch.
