The hot story flying around Hollywood today is about Joe Millionaire's
real job: is he a construction worker or an underwear model or... a
gay escort?

Many of the print and broadcast tabloids, as well as "People Magazine"
and "Entertainment Weekly," have been flooded with calls since the
show premiered on Monday from gay men on the West Coast who say
they've retained Joe's services as a male prostitute.

And today, the letters started arriving at the tabloids and magazines
with clippings from back issues of a gay escort rag, published by "The
Advocate," with ads featuring "intimate massages" offered by a man who
looks exactly like Joe Millionaire with a Dana Point telephone number.
(For those who want to try the #, it has now been disconnected.)

For those not in the know, the alleged $19-thou-a-year "construction
worker" lives in Dana Point, one of the most exclusive suburbs in
ritzy Orange County, south of Los Angeles, and owns a Porsche. It
doesn't take a genius to figure out that someone who makes $19-thou a
year can't afford to live in Dana Point and drive a Porsche. Perhaps
it's more like Joe makes $19-thou a month.

The Fox network is elated about the show's high ratings but also has
been in a spin crisis since it was revealed that Joe made his living
as an underwear model in catalogs and websites catering to gay men,
and only moonlighted on occasion as a "construction worker." The
network now is in a panic, realizing all too late that many male
"models" use modeling as a cover, when they're really gay escorts.

A friend inside Fox told me this morning that PAs at the network have
been sent all over town to buy gay porn magazines to search for other
ads with pictures that look like Joe. Why? If the story goes wide, the
network wants to be prepared.

"The network's PR line will be," my friend says, "just because you
give a massage doesn't mean you're a prostitute."

Right. Sure. If you believe that, I'd like to show you something in a
lovely bridge.

Yours sincerely,

Dame Delia Dampcrotch

Those were taken with a telescopic lens from very far away, and if you
recall Gwyneth Paltrow was in the photos too but no one seems to talk
about that, the 2 of them were vacationing at the time I believe.

The mind boggles to think that Fox could actually be this dumb. I
mean, OK, we know they're dumb, but to set up a show like this, and
*not* go over the would-be lead's entire background with a
fine-toothed comb?

Unless it's all part of the deliberate show publicity. *That* I could
believe.

And I think Fox knew it all along. What better way to get free ratings
than to get someone with a sleazy, shady past, and then feign surprise for
a few weeks. They also surreptitiously get away with saucy stuff they'd
not get away with on the network, and with this particular scenario,
garner publicity after the series is over.

My mom was a bookkeeper at a bank when I was a kid, and she said exactly
that--banks have a million low-paid vice presidents.

Not quite EVERYONE, but I've done work on bank personnel systems (software
development), and, as of maybe ten years ago, 15%-20% was typical.

I think you're right on the money here. The show will only run six or seven
episodes because of the "big giveaway" and then the guy is off the air. Fox
doesn't have any money invested in the show going the long run. So the more
dirt and scandal that's smeared around about the show while they're running,
the happier they are. I'm sure it was the Fox publicists who leaked the
underwear model pictures after the story broke. They're riding the wave and
cashing in every angle they can.

I saw the guy on one of the telemagazines and my first reaction was "wannabe
actor." He has the same goofy mannerisms and forced delivery as 500,000
other woefully untalented prettyboy "actors" who you see all over LA with
headshots under their gym-pumped arms. They'll do virtually anything to get
that big break.

Fox is putting another show on next week that, no joke, has midgets and
dwarfs playing tug of war with an elephant. And this is the same network
with "Celebrity Boxing" where they put two has-beens in the ring so they'll
punch each other in the tits.

There is no depth too low for Fox to stoop.

I can hardly wait to see the major Spin Control they have to come up
with in order to explain why suddenly tons of FOX employees are

An article in yesterday's USA Today said he had a small reoccuring
part on 'Days of Our Lives' a couple years back. When the reporter
asked him if he was hoping to get a part on a regular series, he
answered 'of course'.

If he's a construction worker I'm Tinkerbell.

Lol. I thought Joe Millionaire was a reality show, or is it
really?!?!? I never did like Who wants to be a Millionaire, but I did
like the original Who wants to Marry a Millionaire.

You know. That reminds of how all the reality shows are becoming
sexier - anything goes - yes nudity - like High School Reunion. I bet
the Internet is going to flood with xxx reality game shows where they
actually have sex in orgies. Television is not too far behind!

This may be entirely fabricated, but it certainly does lend itself to an
amusing twist, which loses no humor for being merely in theory:

The poor construction worker hired to fool women into thinking he was rich
was also fooling the producers into thinking he was a poor construction
worker.

I'd call that justice.

Susan, have you tuned into that dating game show called "The Fifth Wheel"?
Anything goes has already been done. I'm hoping like hell my daughter isn't

The biggest shame is that Alex Mcloud is involved - I loved her on Trading
Spaces -
Beleive me if Joe was a rent boy it will get out, more than likely if there
is any thing to that, a rent boy probably used the photos of Joe from the
California Muscle catalog in his ad (rather than have to pay for
professional photography, you just go through obscure catalogs and pick the
guy you kind of look like)

I'm willing to bet that Joe does have money. I said that on the first show
to my roomate, I am betting he will pick one (the school teacher) and do the
big reveal that he is poor, she will still love him, and then the bigger
reveal -he isn't poor - but could never find a woman to love him for
him -yadda yadda yadda.

Since it is not a gameshow they don't have to abide by any rules, and given
the amount of publicity ..marry a millionaire" got even with the scandal..I
doubt they really care if he bionks men or not.

That doesn't make sense. The guys who contacted the tabloids didn't claim to
just see the ad, they saw him in person. And unless a bunch of guys got
together to conspire against him for some reason, it seems unlikely that so
many different men having the same story are lying.

Usually, scoop posted by Dame has a source at the top (like Variety or

That's why I wondered if it was real gossip, or something that somebody just

Either way, it's pretty good! I just wondered which disclaimer to add when I

It's possible. Shoot off enough frames and you might get one where,

Dude, I went to high school with Evan Marriott and he was the biggest
dufus. Yes, I was an even bigger dufus, but he was no, like, ladies
man or anything. At least not that I remember. It's just too wild that
all this has happened. Who'd a thunk it.
