The Bagman, the Author - Paul Barresi
But unlike most people in this town, there are a couple of things he won't do if you are straight with him: He won't lie. He won't cheat. And he won't steal. He'll make his money honestly, the old-fashioned way: He'll earn it. Meanwhile, almost everyone around him - the movie stars and their man-handlers, the power mavens and their procurers, the agents, managers, aspirants, hangers-on, whores and the lawyers - especially the lawyers - will do anything they think they can get away with.
He can document every relationship he's forged and every job he has ever done; these aren't just idle claims or accepted truths. Name a Hollywood scandal in the last two decades and he played a role in it: If he didn't leverage one of the principals, he brokered some of the inside information. If he didn't know the targets, he knew the grifters who targeted them, or the P.I.'s or shysters or crooked cops they turned to to get them out of it. Because when a world-class celebrity comes butt-up against the consequences of his infinite desires - and believe me, he will - he will do or say or pay anything to get himself out of it.
That's where he comes in. He is the bagman. He knows this world like he knows his own skin, and its reek and stench is his oxygen.
He is one of the most sought after interviews in Hollywood today thanks, mostly, to his association with convicted super Private Investigator Anthony Pellicano.
How do I know all this?
His name is Paul Barresi. He is writing a book with biographer Raymond Strait.
After the jump, Hollywood, Interrupted presents a WORLD EXCLUSIVE sneak peak into "Pellicano's Enforcer" - the story of how the self-styled PI and the Pelican dealt with a porn star accusing the heterosexual family man Tom Cruise of having a feisty, sexual affair with him.
Exclusive excerpt from "Pellicano's Enforcer" - a book-in-progress by Paul Barresi with Raymond Strait:
The Bagman parties with Victoria Gotti at the Pelican's former client Steven Seagal's biz partner Julius Nasso's estate
"A man's reputation is not in his own keeping, but lies at the mercy or
the profligacy of others. Calumny requires no proof. The throwing
out of malicious imputations against any character leaves a stain,
which no after-refutation can wipe out. To create an unfavorable
impression, it is not necessary that what is said be true. The damage
is done in the mere telling of it." William Hazlitt (1778-1830)
On the day that the Feds arrested Anthony Pellicano in the fall of 2002, I'd just finished dousing a potential five alarm fire about to engulf the career, reputation and livelihood of Pellicano's most prized Hollywood motion picture star client. The role I played in this particular case involved much more than your average everyday investigative footwork; the culmination of several weeks of intensive probing, interviews and background research into allegations about Tom Cruise that, if proven, would have deep-sixed his multi-million dollar film career forever.
He called himself Big Red. When not traveling around the world, offering up his sex for hire services to wealthy Johns and lonely rich widows (who splurge on stud services when not blowing their money on botox, mini-face lifts, full body massages and chemical peels), Red acted in porn films. A tall, lanky, light complected, average looking twenty-five year old really had only one thing going for himself. He often boasted, "Hey, they don't call me Big Red just because of my freckled face and carrot top."
In the early summer of 2001, Big Red had just finished his pool side sex scene in a porn film I produced.. While seated at the patio table, writing checks for the cast and crew, he came over to the table and sat down in the chair next to me, but did not speak a word. I thought he either didn't want to break my concentration or, more than likely - as most of these porn actors do after they finish a scene - he probably wanted more money. The way they do it is by complaining that they had to fuck for hours under the hot sun in awkward positions, or the scene took much longer than they anticipated, causing them to miss an appointment with a paying john. I've heard it all before.
Red made five times more than the measly five hundred I paid him, when turning a trick. However, it is not always about the money with these young men and women in porn. Exposure in a porn film is the best free publicity a prostitute can get. Make no mistake, the unspoken truth is, prostituion and porn go hand in hand. Porn stars use the videos they appear in as infomercials to help peddle their ass, literally. I kept thinking, what's on this kid's mind? He's too quiet. Nobody is that courteous. Especially a self-centered, self-consumed hustler. Maybe he's just waiting for the appropriate time to start a conversation.
I paused a moment and took a sip of my iced-tea just to give him an in. Producing gay porn, for me, is a living - not a life style. I make over a quarter million a year making porn. I don't have to be sold on the idea that sex sells. So when Red proceeded to cue me in on a book he was writing, about his paid romances with some of Hollywood's biggest stars, I refilled my glass and gave him my undivided attention.
"Who are some of these big named stars you've been intimate with?"
Red rattled off a laundry list of celebrities he supposedly had sex with. "My book is going to rip the town apart."
He spoke with such conviction, I truly believed his story. I wanted to believe it. Something in his manner tripped my money-making instincts. Anything that would rip Hollywood apart interested me because such stories made tabloid headlines. A sex soaked story on the front page of The National Enquirer adds up to big bucks.
Red did not lay it all out to me at once. True to his trade, he put on the charm before spilling his guts. He said "I'm very aware of your reputation for knowing people in high places who could make things happen." He'd apparently done his homework. Having worked in the sex business for more than 30 years and in the Hollywood film and television arena, as an actor, did have its advantages. Not too many people have stood as firmly perched atop the fence from which to observe both industries equally. Pellicano quickly saw the advantage in someone with my expertise when I first began working for him in 1993 on the Michael Jackson case.
After Red finishing kissing up, he got down to the real reason for confiding in me about his proposed book which, up to that time, had been kept tightly under wraps. He asked if I would introduce him to the right people who could help him land a movie deal for his life story. I explained some of the realities of trying to sell a non-fiction story, about personal relationships with celebrities, intimate or otherwise. "Corroborating your sexcapades with the average Joe will be tough enough, let alone proving all these sex trysts with major Hollywood movie stars."
I told him that making those kinds of claims could potentially bring on extortion charges and most assuredly lead to law suits.
That didn't matter to Red. He adamantly stood his guns, claiming that he could enumerate the dates, times and details of various sordid sex acts that he engaged in with his celebrity partners. "I've kept a detailed diary and I have receipts from restaurants, hotels, night clubs, plus other documentation as well as eye witnesses who are willing to go on the record to support my claims."
You can't get much better than that. Now, I'm thinking if this guy is on the level, I can make a bundle of money in any number of ways. In my mind's eye, I first saw a story with The National Enquirer.
"Can I interview you on tape?" More often than not, people are willing to let you get them on tape when they think they've got a shot at selling a story for an enormous amount of money. "Sure," he said, without hesitation.
We made arrangements to sit down together in a taped session at my home. The following is excerpted from our first interview on August 21, 2001:
PAUL: What is your current occupation?
RED: I am self-employed. I work as an actor, a porn star and escort, a massage therapist and I do bartending and sometimes dancing and stripping in shows. I travel quite a bit, as an escort, around the world, and I do floral arrangements.
PAUL: You advertise your escort services in various gay newspapers and escort web sites. Describe the photo you use to attract potential customers.
RED: I'm wearing Calvin Klein briefs and my penis is visible. The shape of it is visible through the briefs and I have a leather jacket that I'm removing, and showing my bare chest and my red hair and I'm not sure if I have just a little bit of pubic hair sticking out on that particular one, but that was on boyzusa.com. Now, one very successful photograph of me is, me with sort of a buzz haircut and the light shining and making my red hair very, very bright and I have a long sleeved shirt on, which is completely unbuttoned and it looks like I'm undressing, and it says BIG RED. I'm known by that name around the world because when I met Tom Cruise, he even said - the first thing he said was, 'I hear they call you Big Red.' And he loves redheads!
PAUL: Okay, before we get ahead of ourselves, let me ask you a few other preliminary questions. How many clients do you service on a monthly basis?
RED: Well, now sometimes I'll take a month or two off, just to catch up but, in a good month, I'll service about three to five hundred men.
PAUL: You stated you attracted celebrity clientele, one of whom is Tom Cruise. Name some of the others. Just their names for now.
RED: There's Antonio Bandares, Jason Priestly and country singers Garth Brooks and Randy Travis.
PAUL: Okay, how did Garth Brooks find you?
RED: On boyzusa.com.
PAUL: Let's fast forward and talk about the moment of truth now. What ultimately led to making you an absolute believer that the person trying to reach you was, indeed, Garth Brooks?
RED: It was pretty simple- because through his friend - I only know him as Doctor Paul, who picked me up at the Nashville airport. I flew in on the red-eye and he arranged the hotel room, a mile from the airport. The Red Roof Inn. He first took me to MacDonald's for breakfast. He didn't ask me what I wanted, just ordered for me. I got one of those ninety-nine-cent breakfasts.
PAUL: So all of this was arranged for Brooks through Doctor Paul?
RED: That's correct.
PAUL: Okay, you're in the hotel room. Then what?
RED: I went into the room. Doctor Paul parked out front, sitting in his car. I saw him through the window. I sat down on the bed and not too much longer afterward, a few minutes maybe, then a knock on the door. Dressed in ordinary clothes, no cowboy hat, no boots - nothing. Mr. Garth brooks came through the door to visit me. He said he wanted to be fucked in the ass. I was smart enough to be prepared for anything goes and I recognized him immediately. So I went into the bathroom and, because he was so overweight and disgusting, I took a Viagra, got hard, and put on a condom. He just wanted to go for a ride for hours and hours and hours and hours.
RED: Yes. Well, it lasted really for about two hours, but when you are fucking a whale it seems like eternity and then, I was told that Doctor Paul would come back and pay me. Brooks left. He didn't even shower or anything. Just got up, threw on his shirt, pants and tennis shoes and left. About fifteen minutes later Doctor Paul came in, paid me - I think five or six hundred dollars - and then took me immediately to the airport to catch the first flight back to L.A.
I then brought up the subject of his alleged encounter with Tom Cruise. That interested me more than the others because I knew that's where the big bucks would come in. The tabs love anything that connects Cruise even remotely to the word gay because there is always a major reaction from him. He is one of the most homophobic actors in the world.
I urged him to continue. This particular encounter, he said, took place in London during the filming of Eyes Wide Shut, on location there.
RED: Marcello (club host) took me to a room outside this club to wait and I just sat there. Then two men came into the room. They told me it would be a very simple job and that they were going to pay me in cash, showing me an envelope with approximately five hundred UK pounds in cash.
PAUL: Then what?
RED: They took me with them in a car and we drove, I think to the Highgate area, to a house.
Nothing spectacular. We went into the back of the house where Tom Cruise was sitting on a small sofa. A mat had been spread out on the floor. Cruise, dressed in what looked like a body suit, looked so cute. Either a black or very dark navy blue body suit for wrestling. He had on a little cap thingy, but the chin strap wasn't attached. Grinning and gloating at me, he said, "Strip down to your underwear and play with me for a little while." That's really the only conversation we had. We played. We wrestled. He was nice to me. I mean, he let me win, then he asked me if it was okay if he could rip off my briefs and told me he would buy me a new pair.
I remember looking very close into his eyes and (I could tell because I used to tint my eyebrows and lashes) - maybe not his brows, but for sure his lashes were tinted because they had been growing out and I could see kind of like a lighter color around the edges of his eyes and if you look closer, he is a very fair skinned man.
PAUL: You wrestled around with him for how long?
RED: About an hour and a half, maybe.
PAUL: And what was going on?
RED: I was in my underwear and he was touching my butt mostly and, his finger - through the underwear touched my anus and he was stroking my balls, just a little bit. It was quick. He whispered in my ear, "It's okay. Just relax. Just relax." At one time he actually picked me up and threw me down and said, "I think red heads are really hot, and I hear you're called Big Red." Then, once my underwear was off, he got into some serious stroking. He told me to jack off so he could watch. I did and after I came, he threw me a towel. I got dressed and then the two men drove me back to the club in London.
After interviewing Big Red, I immediately drafted up an agreement. The deal was, that he would pay me fifteen percent of whatever amount of money he got from The National Enquirer for his story. I telephoned The National Enquirer the very next day and they gave the lead to Alan Smith. I knew Alan very well. I had dealings with him in the past. I never liked him but, in the smut peddling business, one can't be picky. Smith came to my house the next afternoon. He listened to the audio taped interview I conducted with Red. A little later, Red arrived. Smith asked him several pertinent questions and took a lot of notes. Red recounted pretty much what he had told me. When we were finished, Smith said he'd work the lead and get back to us.
Three days later, neither Red nor I had as yet heard from Smith, so I placed a call to his office. He told me that The Enquirer had decided not to do the story because there were too many things he could not stand up. For example, the host at the London bar named Marcello. Nobody ever heard of him, according to Smith.
I thanked Smith and telephoned Red right away to let him know The Enquirer passed on the story. I knew Red saw thousands of dollars slipping through his fingers but I had only begun to explore ways to spin Red's story into a small fortune. I decided to give it to Anthony Pellicano.
I contacted Pellicano and told him about Red's alleged claims of having had a homosexual affair that involved a lot of groping and grappling with his client, Tom Cruise. Anthony did not seem overly surprised, but he made it very clear that he needed to contact an attorney by the name of Ricardo Cistero right away to tell him about it. I would later learn that Cistero had been one of Pellicano's former private investigators, before becoming an attorney. Mr. Cistero (as I would later find out) now worked for none other than attorney Bert Fields who, would you believe, was the attorney for Tom Cruise. Coincidence? Absolutely not.
I met with Pellicano in his office the following day to debrief him on Red's story, after which he instructed me on how to deal with Red. "I don't care how you do it, but you need to bring him in here, as soon as possible, so I can interrogate him." He then complimented me on a job well done. "You did the right thing in telling me about this kid." That's when he guaranteed me no less than a $60 thousand dollar payday for a job well done, which left me ecstatic. I'd never gotten that kind of money for celebrity damage control before. I'd always wondered about the going rate for saving a mega-star's ass. I didn't have a clue, but sixty grand sure felt about right.
I left Pellicano's office and called Red to give him the good news - that his story still had life. "There's a very powerful guy with a lot of important connections by the name of Anthony Pellicano who wants to meet you." I told him that Pellicano had an office on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, adjacent to Beverly Hills. "I shared your story with him and he seems pretty sure that he can help you get a movie deal."
Very pleased, Red promised to clear his schedule for the next day in order to meet with Pellicano. Like clockwork, Big Red and I waltzed into Pellicano's office at twelve o'clock sharp. I announced myself (and Red) to the receptionist. Ten minutes later a clean-shaven Pellicano, entered the reception area to greet us. As customary, I found him decked out in an impeccable white dress shirt, tie and dark slacks, his hair neatly combed back. Always the consummate gentleman. Pellicano smiled and shook our hands.
Speaking softly, he said "This way," as he led us through the door down a corridor, into his spacious back office. Motioning me to sit on the sofa, with the grace of a maestro he then directed Red to sit in a specific chair. I would not know the significance of that particular large, black leather chair until much later, but it certainly explained why Pellicano took very few notes during the entire hour and a half interrogating Big Red.
From the moment Red sat down Pellicano's demeanor took a different form. He became all business. Not exactly a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde physical transformation, but still a drastic personality change. Not taking his eyes off Red, with pen poised, he sat straight up in his chair and pulled his yellow lined legal pad closer. As Pellicano set the stage for a brilliant one man show about to unfold. I had a front row scene to high drama in its rarest form.
I sensed the tension and felt the heat rise as Pellicano, not missing a beat, began his interrogation of Red. Without blinking an eye, Pellicano leaned slightly forward in his chair, and addressed Red with a dead-pan stare.
"Now listen to me very closely. I want you to tell me everything. I want to know what the weather was like when you drove to the estate, outside London to meet Tom Cruise. I want to know the names of streets you traveled on to get to the country house where you say you and Tom Cruise wrestled and had sexual relations. That's what you are saying, right?"
It took Pellicano less than five seconds to paralyze Red into inaction. "Are you listening to me? You claim to have had sexual relations with Tom Cruise. Am I correct?"
Now Red seemed to have collected himself and responded with a very short, but direct, "Yes.".
"Where was Nicole at the time? They were shooting a film, right? Tell me the name of the film they were doing when all this happened."
Red softly answered, "Eyes Wide Shut."
Anthony blasted Red. "I didn't hear you."
Red fired back, so loud he could be heard in the neighboring office, "Eyes Wide Shut!"
Throughout the hour and a half interrogation Pellicano delivered his questions in rapid fire succession. I noticed that Red, at times, seemed frazzled at the simplest questions. But I have to give it to him. He, surprisingly, held his own. However, I had no doubt that Pellicano intended to shake him up, trying to see if he would fall apart under pressure.
"Look at me when I am talking to you!" Pellicano did not ask, he demanded. "Describe the sound of Tom Cruise's voice? What distinguishable marks does he have on his face? And, I'm going to tell you that right now. There are distinguishable marks that you can only see up close. So, if you are lying to me, I'm going to know."
The master interrogator dominated the scene - and - seemed to truly enjoy it, shooting off questions without pause; without seeming to take a breath. One after another. On and on. Consecutively, in staccato fashion. "What color is his hair? What shape are his eyebrows? Tell me about his eye lashes? Are they long? Are they dark, or are they lighter than the hair on his head? How tall is he? Is he left handed or right handed? Do you know? Did you see his penis?"
The merciless grilling continued non-stop. Red did not have a second to think. Pellicano did not want him to falter, hesitate or take a breath or pause long enough to create or invent a tale. He wanted the truth and nothing but the truth. He conducted one of the most masterful interrogations I've ever seen. I got to see first hand, the maestro at work. What a learning experience. I sat in silence, on the edge of my seat.
The bombardment questions continued. "What was the limo driver's name? You say there were two men who took you to Tom Cruise' country home outside London. What were their names?"
"I remember one of them. A big burly looking guy named Mickey." Red detailed the stocky, barrel-chested limo driver right down to his hairy knuckles.
"What gate did the driver use to enter onto the property? You say the home was outside London. Where outside London? Describe the landscape. Did you walk upstairs into the house? What door did you enter through? Were there security guards? Once you entered the premises did you walk down down a hallway to a room?"
Red's mouth appeared to drop open but no words came out. He seemed to be dumbfounded, but eventually he came around answering all of Pellicano's questions in great detail.
" Describe the room where you wrestled and had sex with Cruise. Were there pictures on the wall? Were the windows curtained or did they have shutters? Were they draped? Describe the paintings you saw on the wall."
After an hour, Red became so petrified, he began looking away and stuttered when he spoke. I thought Pellicano would cause him to either crack or shit his pants. Strange as it may seem, however, Red survived Pellicano's brutal questioning.
Anthony later pulled me aside and said, "I think this kid's telling the truth. I find him to be credible." It made no difference to me. It is well known in celebrity circles, that an accusation doesn't have to be true, to create a smear campaign. Pellicano cashed in on that concept. A Hollywood star can't afford even a whiff of scandal, because a tall tale can cause irreparable damage.
On the way down the hill to drop Red off at his West Hollywood apartment, I queried him further about his alleged sexual dalliances with Andrea Boccelli. The idea of Red being with Cruise didn't affect me one bit, but the thought of him having sex with the legendary opera singer, Andrea Boccelli, bugged me beyond words.
I'm a huge Boccelli fan.
"You say you were with Andrea Boccelli?"
"Oh, Yes," he replied with a huge grin on his face.
At that moment I wanted to wring his neck I wanted to wring Red's neck. Instead, I invited him to lunch.
We went to a popular restaurant in West Hollywood, near the Strip. After we sat down and ordered, I said him "I'm curious, what is it that you did with Boccelli?"
"I'll draw you a map." He asked the waitress for a pen, flipped his place mat over and then proceeded to sketch out the entire Mediterranean coast line, right down to the boot of Sicily. He plotted out the itinerary he supposedly shared with Boccelli, down the Italian coast onto the French Riviera, pointing out all the places where he claimed the two of them stopped along the way.
I asked, "What did Andrea Boccelli like to do with you sexually?"
He said, "Oh, he enjoyed the smells. You know, the natural scent of a man."
I thought to myself, Oh yeah. I get it. Boccelli's blind so what senses are left?
While waiting to hear from Pellicano I continued gathering intelligence on Red, and faxing the info to Pellicano as I received it. After ten days went by, unable to reach Anthony on the telephone and not hearing anything further from him, I decided to forward everything to Bert Fields himself, just to make sure he was getting it the way I'd been presenting it to Anthony. I covered my bases. I didn't care if Pellicano took the credit, I just wanted to make sure he didn't try to cash in behind my back. Up to this point, whenever I called Pellicano's office, they told me he either was out of the office or in a meeting. The same old Hollywood excuses. I had a feeling in my solar plexus, that he might be trying to cut me out of the deal.
I had better luck contacting the Fields office. As long as I could speak with somebody on the damage control team, I figured things would be cool, moving along nicely. I spoke first to Ricardo Cistero, and then Bert Fields got on the phone to thank me for doing such a good job. I only had two conversations with Fields, but I do recall during one of them, expressing how concerned I'd been about Red's alleged claims to have been sexually intimate with Andrea Boccelli. I asked if he could do something about it, that I wanted to help Boccelli.
"We can certainly contact his people," Fields assured me. I felt more at ease.
I continued faxing Fields background information on Red as it came into my possession. I did not discuss finances or payment with either Fields or Cistero.
Several days following my last conversation with Fields, Anthony telephoned me at home over the weekend. He'd never done that before. I remember it well because for the first time, he called me honey. He had good news and bad news.
The good news - So far, all the information Red gave him seemed to be checking out. Tom Cruise had, indeed, been in London shooting Eyes Wide Shut on the days Red alleged to have been there and that he did have a body guard named Mickey. Also, Mickey happened to be currently doing time for murder. He expected to receive a mug shot shortly.
It all sounded so convoluted and bizarre to me. Things were moving along and I assumed that the six figure payday would be coming in shortly.
Then came the bad news. Cruise' people were not willing to pay me sixty grand. Pellicano said, "It's going to be much less."
"How much less?" By the tone of my voice, I knew Pellicano could tell that I wasn't happy. "You mean, like thirty grand?"
"Not even close. More like five thousand."
"There's nothing you can do about it."
"Yeah. I bet." My first thoughts were that the payday had already come and gone during the time I'd been trying to reach Pellicano on the telephone. He'd been dodging my calls. No doubt striking his own deal with Cruise and cutting out the middle man. ME!
Meanwhile, I get a call from Red who tells me he got a cease and desist letter from Tom Cruise' attorney, Bert Fields, threatening a lawsuit against him should he even think about writing a book detailing his sex romp with his client. Of course, I had to play dumb. I asked Red to fax the letter to me, which he did right away. I'm glad he did because, had he time to think about it, he would have put two and two together and figure that I'd been part of the plan to stop him in his tracks. Eventually, he did figure it out, but his problems were just beginning.
"I'm hearing strange clicks on my telephone." It also spooked him that a suspicious van had been parked out in front of his apartment day and night. "Everytime I go out, I'm sure I'm being followed."
Even after I figured Pellicano had duped me, I still continued to run a game on Red. I hadn't received my lousy five grand. I didn't intend to get screwed out of that, too. So I continued to meet with Red, playing dumb, going along, offering a sympathetic ear.
"Sounds to me that the possible wire-tapping and unmarked van outside your apartment has Scientology written all over it," reminding him that Tom Cruise happened to be a high ranking Scientologist, regarded by the cult as a God. "You come down on Tom Cruise, you risk having the weight of the entire cult coming down hard on your ass."
I suggested that, for his own good, he would be wise to get out of town and lay low for awhile. "A change of climate would do you good and be a lot healthier." He took my advice and did just that.
Before he left for New York he said to me, "You were in this all along weren't you?" My expression gave away the fact that things were not all that they appeared to be. That's when I told him he needed to move on, that he was way over his head.
"Look at the upside. A change of climate will be much healthier."
Red put his furniture in storage, moved out of his apartment in two days and like the full moon, eclipsed himself. He seemed appreciative, as though the weight of the world had been lifted off his shoulders. He flew out of Los Angeles and from there to Europe to begin a very long, much required vacation.
That's how it went down.
Following Red's exit from Hollywood, Pellicano still dodged my calls, so I resorted to calling Fields office and asked to be paid. On the phone Bert Fields was very coy. "Ahhh, now, tell me again. Tell me how much we owe you Paul?"
"Okay. We'll get the check out to you right away."
Cost of Saving The Heterosexual Family Man's career? $5k
The check arrived a few days later. Sixty grand shrunk down to five grand. I asked myself, how the hell did that one happen? I didn't know it at the time, but the answer would lie with Pellicano's long term relationship with Alan Smith at The National Enquirer, who had first crack at Red's story.
Pellicano obtained a lot of dirt on celebrities from certain tabloid reporters, including Alan Smith, who stood to make a hell of a lot more money from Pellicano for squashing a celebrity scandal than he did from a by-line at the tabloids.
I had no way of knowing, at the time, that Alan Smith went to Pellicano following his interview with Big Red at my home, or that he blew up the story at the Enquirer by telling his editor that none of the information Big Red gave him checked out. It's a time-worn practice - they do it all the time. The Enquirer's editor only have the word of their reporters. So, if Alan Smith says the story doesn't check out, that's it. Quashing Big Red's story at The National Enquirer is as simple as that.
Pellicano arranges to have stories killed that way all the time. My having brought Red to Pellicano only served to force Bert Fields to go through the motions by writing the cease and desist legal letter to Big Red. Fact is, Pellicano and Alan Smith already had the kid bagged.
Why am I so sure of this? It is evident in the from a secretly taped telephone conversation, between tabloid reporter Jim Mitteager and Anthony Pellicano, that took place on January 7, 1994, which came to me through Jim Mitteager's estate, along with thousands of hours of other tapes, following his death in 1997.
Alan Smith was one of Anthony Pellicano's key informants at The National Enquirer (a superstar reporter who gets good information and a lot of plush assignments). As revealed on this particular tape, Pellicano spoke with Smith on a daily basis. Smith fed the Pelican information on what stories were being worked at the tabloid and on what celebrity.
Ironically, I did not start listening to, and transcribing the Mitteager tapes until shortly after Anthony Pellicano's arrest.
January 7, 1994: The National Enquirer reporter, Jim Mitteager, talks to Anthony Pellicano on the phone:
PELLICANO: This kid (Kevin Smith) from Splash News. How important a guy is he in town?
MITTEAGER: He's becoming a player because he's energetic and he knows the tabloid game.
PELLICANO: Yeah, I know that but how important is he? The reason I say that is, I'm about to end his career.
MITTEAGER: (Laughing) He's not that important. He double deals a lot.
PELLICANO: Yeah, but does he get good information?
MITTEAGER: Yeah. His star is not high up there for having great sources or anything like that. What he does is he covers breaking stories and he weasels his way into certain ones and he comes up with a score, but he's not a super star.
PELLICANO: Who is a super star?
MITTEAGER: Alan Smith for The Enquirer.
PELLICANO: Alan Smith calls me all the time. He just called me the other day.
MITTEAGER: He gets a lot of plush assignments. You see the way this game works ...
PELLICANO: Yeah, but that's what my point is. I want you to get the plush assignments.
MITTEAGER: Yeah. Right. Exactly. So, what I need is leads.
PELLICANO: I'll take care of that.
PELLICANO: Now, who else is a big player?
MITTEAGER: What's that broad's name?
PELLICANO: Beverly Ekhart.
MITTEAGER: Beverly Ekhart is a player. Steve Tennie is a player over at The Star.
PELLICANO: Okay, here is one of the things I want you to do. I'm going to give you a thousand dollars for this. I want you to give me the names and telephone numbers of all of the people that you know at all of the tabloids.
PELLICANO: I'm going to give you a grand just for doing that.
MITTEAGER: Okay. Well, I got the Globe and lots of Enquirer people and Cliff (Dunn) will give you Star people.
PELLICANO: Well, get it all together and have it ready for me when I see you.
In a later chapter, I will explain in great detail how Pellicano had tabloid reporters who routinely tipped him off about stories that were in the works, at The National Enquirer, that could potentially hurt any number of celebrities. Pellicano could then contact the celebrity himself, or the celebrity's attorney, to warn them that something cooking at The National Enquirer, The Globe or The Star that, if published, could seriously damage the career, reputation and livelihood of the celebrity in question. This methodology would stir up litigation for the $500 to $900 an hour entertainment attorneys with whom Pellicano had established relationships and, at the same time, force the celebrity represented by one of those attorneys to dig deep into his or her pockets to make the problem go away. Little did the celebrity know that Pellicano, with the help of his inside people at the tabs, created the fire, only to return as the hero to extinguish it.
As one tab reporter so eloquently mused, "It's all about con men conning con men."Add to: Digg it · del.icio.us · Reddit · Netscape

I loved this chapter! I also was approached by Tom Cruise! I was in Los Angeles, at a private estate. We were all naked, playing volleyball. A man came up to me, and asked if I would do some "light wrestling" with a man for $500. I said yes, and I was led into the mansion. In one of the second floor bedrooms was Tom Cruise! He was naked, and told me to lie down on the carpet. He did some wrestling holds on me, but finally just laid on top of me. Twenty minutes later, he got up, his man paid me, and I left.

Posted by: Khw at September 14, 2006 10:05 AM
hmmm...the part where the redhead loses me is where he says he services 300-500 men a month. think about that. at 500 men a month, he would be with 16 or 17 men a day. at an average of 30 minutes per trick, that's a full 8 1/2 hour day, 7 days a week with no break. If he flies out to see one celeb client and kills a whole day, he's going to have to make up 16 men. The John Karr case shows that anyone with internet access and a crazy fascination with celebrity can come up with basic details. sounds like wishful thinking to me.
Posted by: richard at September 14, 2006 11:50 AM
Sounds like complete crap to me.
"Three to five hundred men a month"??
That's 10-16 men a *day*. Riiiiiight.
Aside from the sheer timeline impossibility, there's the physical impossibility aspect as well.

Posted by: hollywould at September 14, 2006 01:42 PM
not only does the 300-500 men per month not pass the hours in a day test - but if he gets $2,500 per trick (5 times the $500 he gets for porno) - then he's making $750,000 - $125,000 per month so why does he need money?
plus - why would major stars repeatedly put their careers in the hands of hustlers they just met. all it takes is one to secretly tape the encounter and the hustler can name his own price.
all that said - i'd love for it to be true. scientology is way creepy.

"the part where the redhead loses me is where he says he services 300-500 men a month."
are you on some publicists or lawyers payroll? I don't think you'd have any problem corroborating that this guy is a high profile prostitute with a lot of "clients".
And whether he intentionally or unintentionally slightly exaggerated the number of men does not establish him as a liar. It was not a fact essential to his story, and your use of simplified courtroom logic to make him seem untrustworthy does not matter in an arena where people are more free to make up theyre minds about the validness of a persons story. Personally, I really think the guys story checks out.
Also, Toms insistence on suing anyone claiming he's had homosexual encounters just puts emphasis on the fact that he has little incentive to sue unless he in fact is gay or bisexual and trying to hide it. Seriously.

Posted by: sleaze_hound at September 14, 2006 07:42 PM
I'm not really happy with these revelations. Next thing you know, Big Red will tell everybody about the time I first met him in the supply room at Katz's. I wrap a warm cheese blintz around his caca and lick it clean. The extra sauce is a nice bonus, like finding an extra can of Sprite in the fridge when you thought you were out. Then Big Red fucked me in the ass for about, oh, 2, 3 hours. Hey, it's only way I can relax nowadays. You feel refreshed afterwards. It's better than yoga. Another nice thing: somebody jams a glass rod straight up the one eye in my trouser snake and then shatters it in multiple places with a soup ladle. You might pee funny after, but the sensation is indescribable. Good times. But my wife hates going through there picking out all of the pieces. She won't even go anywhere near my anus anymore, there's so much shit there now -- half-eaten corn cobs, peeled european cucumbers, a couple of whole avocados. You could make yourself a nice salad. And there's already dressing on the food, a kind of chunky vinaigrette.

I have a photographer that lived , worked the hollywood beat for over 30 years and left. She knows for a fact that Cruise has had a "boy toy" kept for him since around his Taps days. Bills, etc all paid for by Cruise.
His sexual escapades are not a secret outside Hollywood anymore.

wow, I wonder why Tom Cruise would be with a man who services up to 500 men a month? Afterall, condoms aren't 100% safe, they've been known to break, and redheaded-homosexuals with freckles are a dime a dozen. Seems like "risky business" to me, lol.

Hmmmm. I don't know about Big Red's story, but the part about the undercover extortion, getting double crossed and stars paying hush money rings very true.
Celebs are spoiled, and being spoiled destroys your impulse control. That's why one or another is always in some kind of trouble.
Tom Cruise is a totally fake femme-bot. He has manufactured the person he wants to be, but isn't in reality. The scientologists have him thinking he's smarter than the average bear and that he can do anything and get away with it. Not so. That'll be his undoing, eventually.
Posted by: chastity at September 15, 2006 12:47 PM
Folks, when he says he services in a good month 300-500 men, why do you assume he means individually? Come on folks. If he dances and wacks off for a room filled with 50-100 men for a private party and gets paid royally, He just serviced the entire room of men in a sense. Trust me, it doesn't mean he had a physical sexual encounter with each individual person.

The book is co written by established author Raymond Strait, who has had over 30 books published in the past three decades, including a recently published best seller about Bob Hope. I like the way the story is told in the first chapter. I would buy the book if it ever sees the light of day. Me thinks Mr. "No Name", who posted the dumb ass remark above needs to go back to school to learn how to read. Alex Masson
Posted by: paul barresi at September 16, 2006 06:06 PM
Seems to me that Barresi has merely scratched the surface. If I understand it correctly, the piece posted on the net is merely one chapter in a book filled with other info about, not only Tom Cruise (who is one big yawn to start with - and nothing about him would surprise anybody familiar with Hollywood) but also other honest accounts by a Private Investigator who makes his living by either digging up dirt on somebody or squelching dirt about somebody famous. Don't know the investigator if he writes about his experiences. He's just making a little extra money for doing his job. When celebrities write about themselves they lie like snakes. Why would they put themselves down when they pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to protect their "good names?"
I hear that publishers are so intimidated of this book they don't even want anybody to know they saw the first chapter. Where are the innovaters in the publishing world today? Whatever happened to Lyle Stuart? And what about that loudmouth Judith Regan who claims she will take on anybody?
This guy Barresi has a track record. I believe his story. And don't forget the powerful lawyers in the employ of Scientology.
I doubt there would be any lawsuit in this instance by the Cruise people. "Big Red" is alive and well and functioning on the internet. Cruise doesn't want the publicity of a lawsuit. Can you imagine the depositions? Cruise? Nicole Kidman? Katy-did? Plus the lawyers who made the payoffs? And what about Anthony Pellicano? You know he'd be deposed.
No - the publishing industry needs to wake up and live again. But - I forgot - the people who own the film studios also have loads of stock ownership in the major publishing companies.
Well - that's my two cents.
Posted by: Kliment at September 16, 2006 07:15 PM
Do you really think Tom Cruise would pick up some simple street tramp? I used to live and party in LA - and yes - the one's that did have extracurricular activities were very selective on whose these activities were with. The "boys" kept on the payroll are selected for a number of reasons, including their ability to shut their mouth and keep it shut. Tom Cruise, Garth Brooks, et al are not going to risk their careers and reputations by picking up some Santa Monica Blvd. hustler. If they do have a boy on the side - believe me - he is being paid to carry that secret to his grave - and being paid quite well. They are not stupid enough to risk that cash flow. Having known quite a few porn stars in my day - they are brought to some parties, and at times passed around as a party favor, but they don't make the entrance to the upper floors - so to speak. They go to Porn parties, or parties of people that don't care if anyone finds out, or at some rare times, manage to ride the coat tails of someone to a exclusive party. I'm sure Big Red met Tom, or has been in a situation (party) to be close enough to him to know enough details to make it plausible - but regardless of what Tom does in his free time - I guarantee you it's not anything with this guy. Everyone in the biz knows that if you're doing a hustler or porn star - be prepared for the world to find out.

People, leave them alone. They have personal lives too. BFD if they are gay straight or whatever be their sexual proclivites. The double standard reeks. Hef can have 3 live in girlfriends and no one cares, Tom and Garth allegedly have rented company, and all of sudden it's the biggest thing since sliced bread. How many execs on the studio lots have been caught entailing in fleshly pleasures of the alternative kind.
Posted by: JCGM at September 17, 2006 10:10 AM
I very interesting Paul Barresi's book. Big Red tell the truth. Tom Cruise is gay.
Posted by: John at September 18, 2006 05:47 PM
"But unlike most people in this town, there are a couple of things he won't do if you are straight with him: He won't lie. He won't cheat. And he won't steal. He'll make his money honestly, the old-fashioned way: He'll earn it."
Funny how the chapter reinforced all that by detailing the backbreaking phone calls Barresi made to 'earn' his $5k - unless you want to count the time spent lying to Big Red - all to ... steal his hush money.
Yeah, this guy's definitely different.

TIP OF THE ICEBERG...............HOLLYWOOD is a sex factory. More devious than the public could ever imagine. I have experienced these famous- non famous liasons while modeling in New York City during the 70's and 80's. The general public does not know what is really going on behind the scenes and never will. Keep Eating Your Kellogs Corn Flakes Folks. Secrets of this magnitude are kept securely under wraps with black mail techniques and sometimes even murder. Alot of money is involved and the top players do not want to relinquish their bread and butter. Now if they have used you up to the fullest and then want to get rid of you..........that's another story.

I dunno if he is, was , is bi or not and I don't care alot. But fact is that Tom Cruise appreared in shot in Aftonbladet, a newspaper of sweden, in rather sexy shots.
But even that is not proof.
What seems more of a problem re Cruise reactions about gays is the fact that he sues people saying he is, like if that was some sort of an insult to be gay.
He therefore demonstrates his homophobia and scientology's homophobia; unless he has some other problem like "I would like to become the next Californai President, then the US president".

Tom Cruise is not a very good actor. He is average mediocare actor. Dont know how he got into movies. I was in few films myself, and never strike big. I gues i didnt play Hollywood politics like he did or others actors...I was living in Laguna Beach for a while.... I was afraid to drive on those lousy California freeways, so I took other transportations... I was rape in Laguna Beach one evening, and did see many shady characters around Hollywood...I left, and never ever wanne go back...have no desire to live there...Paul Barresi was trying to break big to movies as well, but didnt, so he payback with his porno lifestyle...I dont understand how he ca get away with it...I dont care for Hollywood...Sex--Power--and--Politics is always Hollywood way of getting into movie industry...Today Hollywood actors and actresses all did it with sex appeal games..I was not born yesterday...nothing new...its a way of making living there...

I would recommend that we get the story out soon as Tom is getting married November 18th. If we can publish this week that means the word will get out and if people want to contact you for interviews because it will be big news if it comes out right before Tom's wedding. There is always the issue of the media not wanting to deal with this because it's Tom, as you experienced earlier. I mean South Park got cut for criticizing him. So I hope it generates opportunities for you, but we can't be sure. I will do my best to make it big news in the blogging world.

I researched all these porn sites for movies directed by Paul Barresi and never has there been an actor named "BigRed" in any of Barresi's videos and only a few appearences by Nathan Hamilton and as far as I can tell Nathan is the only redhead cast i any Barresi video. Just find Nathan Hamilton and you have the real story. We have a few websites with Nathan Hamilton naked on them. The US Federal law says if they display naked images the webmaster has to have current ID on file on the model. So all we do is pay off one of these webmasters, find the real Nathan Hamilton and we got our story!

Nathan BigRed is sly. He does really hot scenes and never appears on a boxcover and no one has tried to sue or threaten him.
a cease and dessist letter is only a request,not a threat. THERE WAS NOTHING THREATENING IN BERT FIELDS WORDS TO NATHAN and whether that horrific copy of a letter has any truth to it is up for grabs.
Funny how Fields does not comment either.
Posted by: He's da man! at November 4, 2006 12:14 AM
I have noticed that there seems to be a pattern that has developed here. It seems to me over the last week and a half someone(s) have been promoting Nathan Hamilton. Hmmmmmmm? Could it be that Mr. Hamiton and/or his Friends are "STARVING" for Media Exposure by doing this?
And it seems to me that it's just out of his character for Ron Jeremy to trash me. Could it be that Nathan Hamiton and/or his friends Illegally forged Mr Jeremy's name to trash me for whatever reason(s)? Or is it the real Ron Jeremy posting?
But with the way that some of these posters are "PRAISING" Nathan "Big Red" Hamiton, it just seems to me that Mr. Hamiton is orchestrating this. Am I right or am I wrong? One way to find out.
Mr Nathan Hamiton? How about you commenting to me here on Hollywood Interrupted, and me and you can have a legal friendly chat about this? Are you Legally up for this? or will you Cowardly ignore me?

I think it's BIG RED himself who is posting all these links to his own articles and photos. I just visited the site meetlocalmen.com and I don't see what Sir Roy is so excited about. Big Red is a goofy looking thing. He's got to be 40 if he's a day and he looks worn out. His profile says he will blow you but he is also intellegent. I mean how smart can Big Red be if all he's got going for himself is selling his ass on line?

He might be 40 but according to Barresi he was 25 in 2001 so that would make him 30, now. I heard life begins at 40 though. Goofy is a matter of opinion and lots of guys with college education have done porn. The younger generation is not bothered with all these morals. And if Barresi thinks Red is goofy the why did he cast Red? Barresi is always so abusive to the guys who work for him. Barresi also draws in other people with negative energy.
This whole story will blow over, I mean it has not exactly made Entertainment Tonight......
and as far as BigRed being smart he is Definitely retired and living a good life a lot younger than most!

I don't know about the other "clients", but if I know something for sure is that Antonio Banderas is not gay. He's always been gay-friendly, but he's 100% straight. I personally know that.

Funny three and a half months have gone by and no one has commented at all on this story and it is not in the news or anything. Looks like you loose Mr. B!

It's weird that this isn't getting more press...
Posted by: Bob In Austin at April 15, 2007 01:59 PM
Press does not care! No one cares - - BigRed is currently living in England and working for the Queen of England who is the head of the Church of England at Westminster Abbey! (remember Henry VIII took the Abbey from the pope and it has remained the personal property of the monarch ever since!) The Church of England pays Big Red to work at the Abbey. It is a very historic place and London needs workers desperately.... No one believes Barresi's story. Nathan is now a permanent resident of the United Kingdon and really has little connection with Hollywood or the porno thing! Perfect Mary Magdalene story! I have pictures of BigRed standing at the side of Queen Elizabeth II -- In anycase, it is an interesting ending to a twisted story.... Just like Madonna - BigRed left the corrupt USA for the UK and is having a good life (and we all saw Madonna in Playboy!) I hear Bigred n partner are adobping a baby too... (could they be going to Malawi to get a child?)

Not only can I confirm the rumors. God knows there are so many now it isn't really rumours about Tom's sexuality anymore as it is selecting the best stories from the multitudes. But I know a South African furniture maker (very high end hand crafted wooden furniture) who lists Madonna and Cruse among his clients that has photographs of Cruise with his male escort at a New Years' Eve party Madonna threw in London. I have seen the photographs. He took them with a camera that was wired into his clothing.

Sadly Nathan "Big Red" Hamilton was killed on 18 June 2007 in a waterskiing accident in Monaco. Those who were close to him are being lead by porn star Kevin Kramer to Mt. Haleakala in the Hawaiian Islands to scatter his ashes. He will be missed and should be remembered for things he did other than having sex with Tom Cruise. He was a great and loving person, a talented chef and artist, a wonderful scholar and a real dedicated friend. I certainly feel that I should have the right to submit happier and more becoming pictures of him and get rid of those TIRED circa 2001 Gay News Netherlands images. Will any one ever be interested in publishing the True and Correct Nathan/Big Red story? Paul Barresi should feel guilty for the horrific things he has done and written about Nathan and others. Also, why can't Mr. B at least use one of the hot images of Nathan from a video shoot instead of repeatedly using the bad Gay News images which were taken before Nathan started working out and looking really good!

Yeah, it was an accident. God rest his sole.

So why is Barresi now telling "In Touch" magazine Tom Cruise is straight as an arrow. Did the $cientologists get to him?
Posted by: Anonymous at November 21, 2007 09:42 PM
Well, it seems like a photo has been removed from this thread and the Barrisi who this story is about has turned to helping the Cult of Scientology try to make the rumors about Cruise go away. But hey, $ talks for alot of people and some just take the money and go away because they can't put up with CoS' harrassment tactics.
Perhaps Scientology had dirt on Barrisi to get him to take the money and do the "investigation".
Scientology has been buying off people to shut them up for many many years:

Big Red has been in his 'eternal sleep' for 10 months. We know who is to blame. That person will not sleep with any degree of comfort & it was he who did not mention a birth mark. Per his writings, not reds. Did you ever notice the scar on the left knee?

Is Cruise one of those new Nicherin Soshu Buddhists? They claim they have the short-cut to L. Ron Hubbard's path of enlightenment... They are rapidly taking in Hollywood bigshot converts at their temple on Crescent Hgts and Sunset. Many Scientologists are joining and off to the Taisekeji compound in Japan at the foot of Mt. Fuji for increased knowledge of the occult and spiritual. Courtney Love, Big Red and many gay por stars and Ms. Turner were all seen there in 2006! Has Cruise been reported at Myhoji Temple in Hollywood or in Japan of Late? Would be interesting to know. Myo-ho Ren-ge kyo - ho ben pai di ni ne je se son ju san mai.. (etc!) [LOL!!!]

He was definitely living in Europe; I think it was Copenhagen: "The New York Daily News reported that In November 2002, Barresi arranged for a porn actor to meet with him and Pellicano to discuss selling his story about his alleged London sexual encounter with Tom Cruise.  Barresi felt the story was not credible, but Pellicano informed Cruise's lawyer, who warned the actor in a letter to drop the matter. Barresi received $5,000 for his efforts after the actor fled to Europe on Barresi's advice"

Red was murdered by you know who.... (hint: it was not a scientologist)but he was not the only one who had to suffer an ddie to protect this story. There are others too. Sooner or later the pieces will be put together. Three people are known to have died directly as a result of this story being on th eweb so far. All three tried to let the truth be known and then were knocked off.

Yes, some interesting evidence has been found on reds murder and it is now documented that redhimstlf became a scientologist in 1999 and was faithful to his religion until his day of murderous death in Eze (it was indeed Eze - not monico, la corse, port grimaud of antibes...) This guy was ot cruise's side more than any one has ever believed so far. Good things about cousin Tommy will be revealed which will shock the world in a positive way! And, London was not their first meeting - it was LA c. December 1 1998! It is all gettin clear now.

We all know what sleaze "Arresibay Aulpay" is and what an evil rotten temper tanthrum he can through when he is proven wrong. You know Nathan had the opportunity to testify on the Kidman side of his 2nd to last divorce but he did not. Clearly red not interested in no money and since it is proven that he owned prestigious SWISS REALESTATE - he did not need the money either... New evidence in red's murder investigation show he became a scientologist in 1994 and met Cruise not in 1999 but in 1998! This story is so fucked up but it is agreed that there is no way in hell that Uncle tommy is a straight man - yes he CANNOT keep a girlfriend or wife for very long! Oh yeah and what about those paintings found in museums all over Europe proven to be owned by red: matisse, picasso, dali, Kirchner, Klee, Hanna Hoch etc,,,

Tom Cruise is not a very good actor. He had an affair with Barry Diller at age 16 to get into the business. He has lied, cheated and stolen his way to the top and he got kicked off the top a few years ago but he is so mentally unstable people like Oprah have to get him to believe a) that he is still on top and b) the world thinks he is straight. LMAO! Well between the Jellybean who wrote this stupid shithead chapter of a book that no one will read (this chapter is written badly enough) and a Nigger President soon to be in the white house America haqs gone down the toilet! And that Oprah bitch? who let her out?

My inquiring mind does not care! We are sick of tom cruise and sick of inane accusations by flaming faggots that certain male stares are homos -- who the fuck cares!
Posted by: Anon at August 17, 2008 09:00 AM
Pasted below was written by someone + a serious organization mentioned above at a class I taught at CSUN:
I was truly moved! It was October 10, 2007 and I watched in my Anthropology 107 class at Fullerton College a video entitled "The Cult Questions," produced by MTV. In this documentary video, I saw real-life people sharing their experience with different cult religions. I was quite familiar with one of the cults -Scientology! This brought back memories and I re-lived my life circa 1999 when I was involved briefly in a relationship with a member of that organization. As individuals in the video shared about their experience my spirit was overcome with the sense of re-living that period of my life all over again. Even more moving for me was a mother who, as a young widow with three boys, joined a Christian cult along with her children. Realizing it was a cult and not wanting to get in any deeper, she pulled out. But the cult members turned her three sons against her telling them that their mother was a follower of the devil. The kids moved in with other cult members and the mother struggled to get them back. She hired a professional "detoxer" who worked diligently to re-unite mother and children. This took months and months and to date only the two youngest children have returned to a loving relationship with their mother; the oldest son is very bitter and very involved with the cult.
The reason I felt I could relate to the mother losing her son to the cult is that I too have lost a loved one to a cult religion. It was Eddie, my life partner of six years. I truly believed for most of that six years that Eddie and I would be together forever and that our life was wonderful. But, there were a series of events that led to Eddie becoming very vulnerable. The first thing that happened is that Eddie, who had come from an alcoholic home, had, over many years, developed a drinking problem. I myself was in a Twelve Step (spiritual, not religious) program, so it was easy for me to help Eddie go to AA meetings and work the Twelve Steps to overcome his addiction. Eddie indeed worked hard and recovery from Alcoholism was the major focus of his life for eighteen months. It is also my experience from being in the program that one needs to work hard, particularly during the first eighteen months, and that during this time the individual seeking recovery experiences a massive "spiritual cleansing!" After this spiritual cleansing, it is truly natural for one to start asking questions about his spirituality. Right around the time Eddie had eighteen months in the program, he suddenly lost his job through no fault of his own. This was a devastating blow and he fell into a deep depression. I tried my best to help him but he was determined that he had to help himself. Suddenly, one day Eddie came home and said that his life had changed. He had met some people who had shared with him the "True Religion" and he intended to convert. I was taken aback.
As I talked with Eddie about this new "True Religion" I became most skeptical and somewhat fearful. I grew up in the Mormon religion and the Mormons are also adamant that they are the only "true religion." They are also adamant that what their leaders say is absolute truth! From an early age, I had to spend hours and hours attending meetings and had intense dogmatic rules drilled into my head. Meetings were seven days a week, including Monday to Friday meetings before school at 5:30 AM! Growing-up with homosexual feelings, I felt horrible as Mormons are 100% against homosexuality. I felt that I had to hide who and what I am. At the age of nineteen, I, like all men of this age, had to become a missionary. The process of becoming one included an intense psychological ceremony in the exclusive "temple" which unlike a Mormon "church" is not open to the general public. I also had to spend two months at the Missionary Training Center to learn Spanish and have more Church dogma drilled into my head. I was sent to South America where I was overcome by my homosexual feelings and fell in love with a local man of my age. The Church threatened me with severe physical violence and my family was instructed to cut me off (which they did for thirteen years!). I was abandoned and afraid to go back to the States where the Mormons could act against me. I stayed in South America with my first partner for quite some time until political and economic problems in that part of the world prevented me from staying any longer. Immigration issues made it impossible for my partner and I to remain together and I returned to the USA struggling in different jobs and different cities before I landed a job as a production assistant in Hollywood. Whilst working in the Film Industry, I met a famous male actor who is a Scientologist. He and I started meeting clandestinely as Scientology is also 100% against homosexuality. I was given a set of rules - things I could and could not do as well as places I could not be seen at. It was difficult. Because I was on the film-set, it was okay for me to be seen with this actor from time to time and I made associations with some of his Scientologist friends. They too were adamant that Scientology was the only "true religion!" I was also mortified to see how closed-minded they were to people of different backgrounds and orientations. It was their way or nothing! They all also assured me that their leaders state the absolute truth which must be followed. The relationship with this actor fell apart and I received numerous letters from his attorney warning me to never speak of the relationship or face serious legal consequences. (Oddly enough, two years later said actor successfully sued a man who had stated in a French Magazine that he had an affair with the actor.) The harshness of two different religions which caused me to lose friends, partners and family, also led to my own depression. I found escape in the use of drugs and alcohol. Fortunately, I had friends in the Film Industry who helped me find a rehabilitation program and I started attending Twelve-Step meetings. These meetings are of a spiritual nature and are not affiliated with any religious sect. In these meetings, I found love and support and a God of my understanding. This is where I developed a spirituality which works for me. Eddie and I met through a mutual friend and it was love at first site. The relationship blossomed and Eddie entered the same program of spiritual recovery as me. I truly thought when Eddie lost his job that we would get through it and be stronger in the end. But, I was in for a rude awakening.
Eddie told me that his new religion was Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism (sometimes abbreviated as: N.S.) and that they were followers of the one and only "True Buddha!" I did not know what this meant and when I asked Eddie, he could not elaborate. He said that he had made an incredible amount of new friends which loved and supported him unconditionally and that these friends made him feel better than he ever did in his life! I asked Eddie to act with caution but he responded that he was never surer of anything. Eddie showed me a string of beads that the Buddhists use to chant with. I was familiar with other sects of Buddhism but had not seen beads like this before . Eddie also showed me a number of books from the Nichiren Shoshu Buddhist sect. I said that I would study them. Eddie also removed from the house all references to religion. This included bibles, pictures with religious images in them, Christmas and Easter decorations and a crucifix that belonged to his grandfather. He stated that "True Buddhists" do not use statues or images of Buddha and asked me to put my collection away. Eddie further made it clear to me that on October 13, 2006 he was going to do a special ceremony called Gojikai where he would be confirmed a "True Buddhist."
Even though I sincerely hoped something would happen to change his mind, Eddie became a Nichiren Shoshu Buddhist within five weeks of his first contact with the group. Within days of his Gojikai ceremony, I noticed his energy changing. He had created a corner in the house where he mounted a wooden box on the wall called a bustadon and he would open this box to chant to his gohonzon inside . He had a book of Japanese characters with Western-alphabet sounds spelled out below and he literally spent six to seven hours per day chanting to the gohonzon. He seemed hard-pressed and exhausted. I also noticed that he was not looking for work and was spending many hours per week going to religious meetings. He seemed grumpy too; I was afraid to confront him with anything. I later learned that he was assigned to spend several hours per week cleaning the temple as well. One day, he came to me and said that I needed to convert to Nichiren Shoshu. I told him flat out no! He began to cry and said that I had to as it was part of his religion and he had been given the "assignment" to convert me. I hugged him while he wept but I was not going to join a religion that claimed "true" anything... I was feeling empty inside. I told Eddie that this practice was exhausting him and that he needed a rest. He said with a fearful gaze that he couldn't rest. He was required to do all he was doing and more.
Eddie's situation continued to worsen and I, who had not studied the books as promised, finally said that I would meet some of the members of his religion. Eddie took me to a Hokkeko meeting at a member's home. There I was given a presentation along with other non-member guests on the basics of practice of Nichiren Shoshu. It was re-iterated time and again that N.S. was the only true religion on the earth today. Afterwards, I was free to chat and mingle and I got several telephone numbers of members willing to share their experience with me. I hesitated to call these people as I did not wish to be proselytized. Eddie's condition grew worse and I began to smell alcohol on his breath. He denied that he was drinking again but I am certain that he knew that I was aware that he was lying. One day, I found marijuana in the house. That was the last straw. I urged Eddie to go to a recovery center. He would not. I told him that I was prepared to leave if he did not get immediate help for his substance abuse. He did not. Not knowing where to turn I began calling the N.S. members from the Hokkeko meeting. I was amazed that not one of these members was concerned with Eddie's drinking or illegal substance use. I was informed that if it is his karma to abuse drugs, so be it. I also got a feeling that drug abuse was common in the cult and that members felt that they were above the law. Everyone I spoke to also insisted that my life would change if I would chant to Eddie's gohonzon and I was being a disservice to my partner by not converting. I was ever reminded that N.S. was the only true religion and their teachings and doctrine were absolute truth! Through all of this, I did meet one member who showed remorse because the N.S. members had destroyed an object belonging to her deceased mother that they perceived as a heretical religious symbol. I also spoke to a lesbian woman who showed a drop of sadness because N.S. directed her to separate from her disabled lover of more than two decades so she could focus more on her chanting. I saw uncanny similarities among Mormonism, Scientology and Nichiren Shoshu. I was also not about to involve myself anymore with this or any cult. I had had enough for one lifetime.
Eddie told me he relapsed on substance abuse because I did not love him enough to join his religion. This made me feel terrible. But, I also would not tolerate him in the state he was in. When he refused again to get help I decided to leave. I had already missed so much school that term due to the stress this situation caused that I simply withdrew from my classes and went to Europe for five months. My last communication with Eddie was shortly before I returned. He said that he was living with three N.S. members in a house in Palm Springs and he was to focus on the religion twenty-four hours per day/seven days per week! He told me that he was not going to have contact ever again with anyone who was not an N.S. member and that there was a guy in his house with a gun who would shoot me should I come looking for him. This saddened me. Nevertheless, I came back a new person and decided to return to my studies at Fullerton College. I was especially excited about enrolling in Anthropology 107 - Magic, Witchcraft and Religion, as it would help me to take off the lenses that I had acquired through being conditioned by the Mormons, Scientologists and N.S. When I saw on the course syllabus that we were to do an interview with a religious specialist, I immediately began to imagine whom from Eddie's temple I could contact and interview. I called a few times and presented myself as "finally open to converting..." I managed to get the e-mail address of Don Metzger who holds the position of Koto at the Myohoji Temple of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism in West Hollywood. I e-mailed Don three times and established that I had looked at a lot of literature that Eddie had given me and studied numerous websites on Buddhism, etc. Don and I set up a time for me to call for a long chat on Friday, October 12, 2007, at 4 PM. The interview went well and I managed to use the information from the literature and websites to construct a great conversation. I was able to ask and suggest a lot of things that provided me with totally new information about Nichiren Shoshu. (Please see interview, attached.)
Remembering the mother who had lost her son to a cult in MTV - The Cult Questions, makes me wonder if I too could hire a "detoxer" to find and save Eddie from this life of intense trauma. On the other hand, I am grateful that I have survived the intensity of three cults and that I am pressing on with my education. I also feel that I have indeed been able to take off the "lenses" that I was conditioned to wearing from my own cult experiences. By doing so, I feel that I am a better anthropologist! Writing this particular paper and interviewing Don Metzger, the Koto, of the Myohoji Temple of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism, has really stretched me to separate myself from my personal views and gain a greater understanding of the processes and functions of religion in our society.
Interview with Don Metzger, Koto of the Myohoji Temple of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism at 1401 N. Crescent Heights Blvd. West Hollywood, CA 90046 - This was a prearranged telephone interview and took place on Friday, October 12, 2007 at 4 PM:
Don : Hello?
Nathan: Hi Don, its Nathan Hamilton, Eddie's friend, calling per my e-mail. I have wanted to talk to you for a while. I have got so many questions.
D: I can imagine. What's going on?
N: Well, I am particularly interested in talking to you about Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism because of your position as Koto of the Myohoji Temple in West Hollywood. I understand that Koto is the highest position a layperson can hold. It is like being a minister, right?
D: Yes, Nathan, I have been Koto since I retired in1995. I answer only to Reverend Takano, the high priest for all the United States. My duties would be similar to a pastor or minister in a Christian church. But, as you know we do not associate with Christians or members of any other religion. To actually become a priest like Rev. Takano you have to be born in Japan and be of 100% Japanese heritage. So, I do hold the highest position available to me.
N: Wow! That's impressive and I understand that Nichiren Shoshu's only temples outside Japan are here in the USA. I also believe that Rev. Takano answers to the High Priest in Japan.
D: Yes, while we have members in countries like China, Taiwan, Thailand and Korea our headquarters is in Japan at the base of Mount Fuji at Taisekiji. In 1960 we began to open temples in the USA and we have a total of 6. Reverend Takano travels back and forth from America to Japan and visits frequently all our temples. All our members are a required to make a Tozan to the Taisekiji complex twice a year.
N: A Tozan is a spiritual journey to the N.S. temples in Japan?
D: That is right. We organize 4 or 5 trips for our members each year and Rev. Takano takes them to Taisekiji for 7 - 10 days at a time. The members pay their own way to Japan.
N: Wow! Can you tell me where the US temples are located?
D: Well by far the largest is here in West Hollywood on Crescent Heights Blvd. We have others in Honolulu, Chicago, Washington DC, San Francisco and New York.
N: Friends tell me that aside from the West Hollywood temple, which is a grand building that the other temples are far from the city centers and are often a small residence, gutted out to have a room large enough for a meeting.
D. That is correct. But, we are a growing religion. Our goal is to double the number of Bodhisattvas by the year 2012, which is when restoration of one of the 12th century temples at our Taisekiji headquarters is, scheduled to be completed.
N: So you are a proselytizing religion?
D: Yes, we call our "missionary work" Kosen-Rufu which is declaring the message of TRUE BUDDHISM to our fellow human beings. It is essential in this religion to spread the word of True Buddhism as we are the only true religion on the earth today. When someone converts to the truth he or she has a ceremony where Reverend Takano blesses them by touching their head with a spiritual stick called Gojikai and this fills him or her with True Buddhism and then that person is a Bodhisattva.
N: It is interesting to say that it is the ONLY TRUE RELIGION. I was raised a Mormon and from early childhood it was drilled into me that Mormonism was the only true religion. They say they are Christians but there have numerous books of Holy Scripture besides the Bible. At age nineteen, I had to become a fulltime missionary and go door to door to spread "the truth." I felt so much pressure to convert others and this pressure was on top of repressing my homosexual feelings. Mormons adamantly oppose being gay and do not recognize the good in any other religion. They have strict rules and secret ceremonies which can be psychologically damaging. And, as you know my life partner is Eddie who joined your religion a year ago. This was hard for me...
D: Well, Nathan, I think you know that I too am gay and I can relate. I was raised Evangelical Christian and joined N.S. in 1965 after a suicide attempt. My family had disowned me. I was homeless and all alone. It was by chance that a cousin happened by me on the street and took me in By the way in those days I was a redhead like you (laughs!). I now see it was Karma leading me to receive gojikai, as my cousin had just joined True Buddhism. I really dove into this because N.S. is the only religion where you can change your own Karma in this lifetime. The other Buddhists say you can change your Karma for future lives only. But, the other Buddhists do not have the teaching of the True Buddha. The True Buddha lived in Japan in the 12th century. He translated the Lotus Sutra into Japanese and corrected it. It is this version of the Lotus Sutra that we use. All our readings and all our chants are done in the Japanese language.
N: How was this "True Buddha" related to the Buddha known as Prince Siddhartha who sat under a bohdi tree?
D: Nathan it is very important for you to understand reincarnation. You and I have lived millions of lives and each life brings us closer or further from enlightenment The Buddha you are referring to reincarnated in Japan in the 12th century . His name was Nichiren Daishonin. He declared that all other religions were wrong and that images or symbols of any religion are heretical. He established the first temple at Taisekiji and wrote the only true teachings of religion. This is the only way a human being can find enlightenment. There is no heaven or hell; there is no judgment; there is only karma and we create it through cause and effect. If we do not like the effect of our causes we can change them through chanting to Nichiren Daishonin. We do this by having in our homes and temples a Gohonzon which is a scroll with hand painted Japanese characters on it copied after the original scrolls that Nichiren Daishonin wrote. That original scroll is the focus of our worship and the reason we make a Tozan to Japan. It is called the Dai-Gohonzon. Our homes and temples do not have any images of Buddha as those who use statues of Buddha are heretical and do not follow the teachings of the True Buddha. Likewise, when someone converts to N.S. they have to rid their home of all books and magazines which have religious images or references in them as well as all references to religion in images and art. This sometimes is a great sacrifice as family bibles, Christmas ornaments, paintings, jewelry and family heirlooms all must be destroyed by the new convert. Many people manage to get rid of their Judeo-Christian items but when we inspect their homes we often find a statue of Buddha in the garden or a souvenir image of Buddha from dinner in Chinatown or a trip to the Orient. These images all must be destroyed! One thing that we do use is flowers. As Nichiren Daishonin died on October 13th and the cherry blossoms bloomed out of season as a result of the great power this man possesses.
N: Yes Eddie, loved the cherry blossoms and the idea that they bloomed out of season. He was very attracted to your religion as he liked the art of flowers. I know that October 13th is a holiday called Obessan in your religion. That is one of the main reasons I wanted to talk to you as Eddie converted last year during Obessan. You also mentioned the Gohonzon. This is what you chant to, right? I noticed Eddie having to chant 6-7 hours per day. It was insane for me!
D: Yes it is difficult to learn to chant but that is the basis of the True Religion ! It is hard for many to learn the words in Japanese but it is essential that they be pronounced properly. Chanting is the only way to change karma. We must not intervene in the karmic progression of those around us either. As the only enlightened people on earth we let things go. If we want to help someone we merely chant for them and later share the message of Kosen-Rufu. And, to improve our own lives we chant. We chant every morning and every evening and have special silent prayers written into the chants. Yes we chant for a good part of our day.
N: Do you really feel that chanting is enough? I mean I was raped by an uncle when I was 8. When I have tried chanting even to a great amount, the trauma of that event in my life does not lessen -
D: (cutting me off) Nathan, being raped is the effect of a cause you made! Simple as that! You, before the age of 8, or in another lifetime did something that brought this about! The only way to stop future intense experiences is to chant. Chanting channels the energy through different venues but it may take many years to purify the causes you have made in all your lifetimes, and as the Enlightened ones, we have to let these things happen. That is a big difference between the heretical religions and us! We do not try to save anyone because they need to experience their own effects of karma.
N: So, my brother and his wife have two little boys. If we were all going to a family reunion and I noticed the uncle that raped me making eyes at my nephews, I shouldn't say or do anything (by your way of thinking)????
D: That is right. We have to let Karma happen as it is meant to happen, If it was your uncle's karma to be punished he would have been. If it is your nephews' karma to be raped then you let it happen - plain and simple!
N: Eddie joined your religion to help him deal with traumatic events in his life. I was skeptical, even suspicious of any group that would call themselves the "True" anything...due to my background. In fact, since leaving the Mormon Church I personally have found a universal truth that runs through many religions. I believe in a God of my understanding and have found inner peace through this. I remember Eddie, being a new convert to your religion, while we were still living together, and really stressing out over learning and memorizing pages and pages of a chant in Japanese. He did not speak Japanese and he seemed to be really intimidated and hard-pressed. I wanted to help him so I opened up conversation which led him to taking me to a Hokkeko meeting where I met some members of your religion. In order to gain a better understanding, I struck up friendships and gave out my cell phone number making arrangements to meet with a few people. One of these was a woman named Claire who told me that she was a lesbian and that after 35 years of her and her lover being members of your religion, the lover had a stroke and needed special care. Claire was informed that it was her lover's karma to go into a rest home and that Claire should be rid of her so she could use her energies to chant more productively. I was saddened that Claire followed this advice. The other woman I met with was Dvorah, a 1st generation American and the daughter of Hungarian Holocaust (Shoah) survivors. She said that she converted due to marriage and after 24 years of practice, the N.S. Buddhists invasively inspected her home and found a menorah which her mother hid from the Nazi's at Auschwitz. The N.S. inspectors took the cherished menorah from her and destroyed it. Naturally, Dvorah was quite saddened by this. She even cried when she recalled the story to me. She further stated that her sadness was seen by the other N.S. members as a weakness and felt condescended, looked down-upon and even babysat. She said that another N.S. member was assigned to watch over her or follow her around for months.
D: Nathan, your ex-Mormon ways are coming out. We have all been chanting for you to make this phone call for a long time and your actions are proving the validity as to why you needed to make this call. I suggest you learn to chant right away. You should stop focus on school and work and focus on your Karma. If that means withdrawing from your classes than do it. You will achieve more success through chanting than from hard-work or education.
N: Hmmmmmmmmmm back in 1999, and shortly before I met Eddie, I was in a brief relationship with a famous Scientologist . Because of my homosexuality, I was given strict rules to abide by and was threatened with death should I expose this Scientologist in any way. The relationship inevitably fell apart and the Scientologist used an attorney to make statements saying that he was not homosexual and was not involved with me or any other gay people. You might know this, because so many people in my life do, and I do not realize it. You see, I was interviewed by the press on numerous occasions about this Scientologist who is high-up in that organization. So, I do not just look at all this from a Mormon point of view, I met numerous scientologists as a result of my relationship with this person. AND, I am recognizing alarming similarities of a cult to your religion. I definitely feel that Scientology is indeed a cult! Eddie was a recovering alcoholic doing very well when he lost his job suddenly. He had about 18 months in recovery and as a 12-stepper myself with considerably more time in the program, I have observed that between 18 months and one year in the program it is natural for one to open himself up to questioning spiritual matters. The first year and a half of recovery is an intense cleansing of old ways. This, on top of losing the job, made Eddie very vulnerable. Out of the blue, he was suddenly "love-bombed" by the overwhelming wave of what appeared to be unconditional acceptance and support by the Nichiren Shoshu group. He was hastened into membership, receiving the gojikai ceremony in less than 5 weeks from his first contact with the group. Then, he was instantly slammed with responsibilities of memorizing 7-hour long chants, cleaning the temple, attending upwards of 15 meetings a week, having to come up with airfare to Japan and more. He had to give up his 12-step meetings and had no time to look for work. When he had second thoughts about staying in the religion he was actually confronted with physical violence. At first, they said they would beat him up if he left your religion and later he was told that if he did not chant and practice perfectly they would shoot him. And, I did speak to another member from the Hokkeko meeting that said she, herself had experienced beating for not conforming the way the group wanted her to.
D: Well, again it is about Karma. I have never been beaten or beat anyone but if this happens those who do it make a certain cause and those who receive it get it as a result of something they did. These are the laws of Universe. As far as Scientology, I know many former-Scientologists who joined that religion and had to take classes and study many, many years to get to the next level. After many more years of study they continued up the ladder and finally when the rare few actually reach the top echelon, they get a chance to go into L. Ron Hubbard's personal quarters, alone where they find a message waiting on a table for them. This message says to read Nichiren Daishonin's translation of the Lotus Sutra! Funny how some have the Karma to become enlightened by coming direct to us and others need to spend decades in Scientology to get the same message!
N: Well, that is an incredible story! Don, I thank you for your time and enlightenment.
D: Thank you too Nathan I will be chanting for you.
N: Oh! I just thought of something else
N: I wanted to ask you about the other groups that call themselves Nichiren Believers. I have been looking at websites and there are many other groups who follow Nichiren Daishonin's teachings and the largest of these groups broke off from you in 1994. I understand that there was a law suit and an official split and many famous people including Tina Turner went with the other group.
D: Well over nearly 800 years in Japan many events occurred. Inevitably copies of Nichiren Daishonin's teachings fell into the wrong hands. We believe in an evil spirit named Sansho-Shima who seeks to destroy the True Religion. Many groups broke off the True Buddhist teachings as a result of Sansho-Shima. The Edo period (1600-1867) was a great time of a great persecution of the True Believers and many were killed and prevented from their Tozan at Taisekiji. This caused many to go astray. Also, after WWII many new ideas were introduced to Japan and heretical values from Christianity were adopted by many Japanese and the High Priest at Taisekiji had to keep us separate from the heretics. Today there are about 6 groups who read Nichiren Daishonin's teachings but we are the only group allowed by law to call Nichiren Daishonin the "True Buddha" and call ourselves the "True Buddhists".
N: Allowed by law?
D: Yes, in the early 1990s the largest group was sued by us both in the USA and Japan and we won the right to prevent them from visiting the temples at Taisekiji, using our Gohonzons and from using the term "True Buddhism."
N: I believe that this group is called the Soka Gakkai and that a lot of famous people in the music industry including Tina Turner and Courtney Love have left your organization and joined them. I also heard that the Soka Gakkai is now a huge political party in Japan...
D: You are correct Nathan. We are saddened to lose many members to the Soka Gakkai which is led by Sansho-Shima himself! We chant for these people and as the only True Religion we are often persecuted by the forces of evil.
N: The idea of Sansho-Shima is interesting. It is like Satan in Christianity yet you believe there is no God.
D: There is no God but there are evil spirits. Humans are capable of achieving enlightenment by being born, dying and being born again. The way to make this process smooth is to chant to Nichiren Daishonin who has already attained his enlightenment. I encourage you to come to temple Nathan and to chant. Your Karma will improve.
N: Thanks Don. I will think about that. Thanks also for your time. Goodbye.

And for those of you who do not know: the "Eddie" mentioned above is ex-porno gay star, Kevin Kramer (now a stripper at Hunter's in Palm Springs at 40 something / looks older due to smoking & addiction! But then, most "clients" in Palm Springs are pushing 80, so who cares!) 'B.R.' and 'Kev K.' met at a play produced by Mme Dish called "Strip Barely Legal" which played in SFO and Weho's Globe Theatre. (Ironically Kramer played the role of "Golden Boy" & Red replaced Hawk McAllistar in a Cowboy cameo. Mcallistar had to go to rehab / what else is new?!!I hear McAllistar goes to rehab 2-3 times per year every year including 2008!) Further, What Scientology is to Christianity, Nichiren Soshu is to Buddhism! There is a problem and systematic formation here! In any case there may be a way into L. Ron Hubbard's private quarters and you might visit the L. Ron Hubbard Sperm Bank as well!

How comme this page is still up cause there ain't no book ever published and the public is tired of hearing or Tom Cruise too. It has been likie over 2 fucken years too! No one wants to read this stupid book and no one cares about Pellicano either who is getting sentenced in a few days and is out of the public eye forever! We can pretty much know that whatever comes out of the author or this shit fraud chapter's mouth is made up for his personal glory or fame as well. Those who know the real truth know how twisted it is printed here. This needs ot stop!

I think you meant Kati-did-it! And the person close to the guy claimed to be a redhead in this article knows who Kati is: a hungarian friend and Nicherin Soshu Buddhist! Anyhow, we rented all 1999-2005 videos by Paul Barresi and there are NO redheads in them. The guy in the pic in this article has not red hair and no one in Barresi vids looks anything like the guy pictured here. Also, there would be other reports if this if it were true. There are not. There is a link to click on in this article and then you get a blank page. This whole story is a tasteless prank! Kati would be able to shed light on the situation!

It is all fine and dandy to talk and epitomize good people. But starting fires to use scare tactics, threats and the art of con to only turn and put out the same fire is not a noble profession. Getting paid 5k or any amount through intimidating, threatening, creating falsehoods, etc. well, there is nothing admirable here. regardless of how sly the author of this socially-deviant story thought Pellicano is, in reality Pellicano is behind bars and perhaps wlll be there for the rest of his life. He deserves to be there too. We will see what he gets on Dec 15th http://www.latimes.com/news/local/crime/la-me-pellicano13-2008nov13,0,5740879.story
Those who glamorize the likes of Pellicano and definitely on the same road to the big house that Pellicano will be spending a lot of time in. There are a lot of official and undercover investigations going on and someone if he is not careful will be arrested too! Making up stories and throwing oneself into the center of attention for instant and temporary gradification causes a seriouc burning most of the time. That time is neigh. There is no praise or glory in this story or the undercover work of a madman! It will be no surprise to see which member of the gay porn industry or people associated with it will be arrested next under the current epidemic of breaking out in handcuffs and shackles.

YAY!!!!!!! This very afternoon Anthony Pellicano was sentenced for 15 fucking, solid years! No one would debate that he deserves anything less! The prosecuting attorneys asked that he serve no more than 6 years but the judge felt that Pellicano was vain, nasty and arrogant. The judge clearly stated that Pellicano showed nothing but piety and pride in his criminal life! There is not one drop of remorse for his heinous crimes and Pellicano thinks the public wants novels and films made about his life - WRONG!!!!!!!! In court, Pellicano was so self-absorbed that he stupidly refused legal counsel and had the audacity to represent himself. BIG MISTAKE and he deserves to rot in prison! Hopefully this sentence is a STRONG MESSAGE for the likes of Barresi who is definitely already in trouble with the law. Like Pellicano, Barresi has pride in the pain and victimization he causes. He will stop at nothing to get his name associated with celeb names. There is nothing good or worthwhile in his antics! It is hard to believe that Barresi also has pride for his association with Pellicano. Any sane person would condemn his association with a major criminal like Pellicano as a faux pas! God-willing there will be a wake up call for Barresi and he will stop his threats, glamorizing crime and criminals, and he will hopefully stop terrorizing innocent people! Nothing written on this web page merits any form of praise or glory. On the other hand Barresi's victims might join together and get the man arrested, tried and into the same prison as his pal. Many believe Barresi would be very happy in a cell for 15 years or more with his pal-time buddy! In prison the two men could fantacize about all the coulda, woulda, shoulda, of TomKat, Julia Roberts, Madonna or whoever and would never be allowed to cause any more pain to others!

Yipee! Anthony Pellicano was named today by Vanity Fair as one of Hollywood's top 50 all time biggest losers ever! Paul Barresi who glamorized his association with this criminal should take seriousl look in the mirror and see another loser! Everybody is so sick of his games, stories and retractions. He retracted his Travolta claims. He said that certain stars were credible and then months later suddenly they weren't regarding gay sex. Then he makes up whatever is convenient for him to get some immediately gratifying cheap-ass exposure in the press. These bad stories and invasions of celebrities' as well as private individuals' privacy is as bad as the wire taping. Barresi's Karma is about to bit his ass and he will be having his wake-up call in 2009 for sure.
Posted by: Sister Makemore at December 17, 2008 02:39 PM
Another Kool thing is that in 15 years time, all the major stars of today will have retired, died or become has-beens! No one will remember any of this Pellicano stuff and no one will care. Also Pellicano will be really old and worthless + so poor to do anything about it! Barresi is no spring chicken either and no one under 30 has ever even heard of him. In 15 years these young people will be business owners, CEOs, execs and unable for Barresi or Pellicano to make an impression on!

This story is so Twisted! First, Alan Smith at the Enquirer openly has hated and abhorred Barresi for 2 decades. If Barresi had half a brain he never would have attempted to work with this asshole. Smith definitely worked clandestinely with Pellicano and purposely quashed printable stories to sell them for more money to the convicted felon. Again if Barresi's IQ was anywhere near 100 then he would never have wasted his time and efforts with Smith. Then, this Raymond Strait is a writer of B-list books. His Bob Hope tribute is good (published 2003) but the other books this man has written are few and far between, Strait has not had a popular book published snce 1977. He also lives in a trasy area called Hemet, Calif. This is known for its white trash and illegal immigrants. Strait adds to his meager social security check by makreting himself as an editor / co-writer for wanna be author. See: http://www.raymondstrait.com
No publisher was ever interested in Barresi's stupid stories. Strait desperate for money is a "sweet talker" ad Barresi desperate for attention listened. So good news is that the entire $5000 check was wasted on cat and mouse writing lessons for iliterate Paulie. Furthermore, Barresi has never been an "in-demand" interview in Hollywood. In fact, Barresi a year ago could hardly give away his story to financialy stressed and barely popular gossip magazines. In nearly every 20006-2008 published story on Barresi's low-class underworld activities it is stated that Barresi contacted them the publication and that he did not receive one penny to have what he had to say printed. Barresi, Smith and Pellicano are known scam artists and only about 5 % of what is told in this story has any truth to it. These lies have led to death, suicide, loss of jobs and countless other damage. Barresi purposely wanted to make it his story when he truly had very little involvement. We know that Pellicano is locked way for another decade and a half due to his abusive tactic. The writing style here is clearly of Raymond Strait who again twisted this so he could feel like his writing career is up and running again. Stait trys to co-author everything. Since Barresi has no artistic ability and cannot write to save his life he had to pay Strait $150/hour to write this chapter. The thing is is that Barresi truly does not have a publishable Pellicano story to tell so he made up this bullshit! The way that he openly admits that he mistreated a guy from his video set further exposes Barresi as the trash nd abuser that he is. In his own words barresi is not credible - PERIOD! Now that Barresi is about to be serving time himself and completely bankrupt, he no longer has $ 150 per hour to pay Straight to create a few copies of a book with the name Barresi on it! Everyhting about Barresi is "oh he or she said this and that." There is nothing worthwhile or truthful that Barresi has to say and he can sacrcely give away his stories/ The Scientology Van can't even be bothered to park in front of the Barresi home which is in foreclosure. And, the clicking on the telephone line, well we now know beyond doubt that tapping into these lines is what Pellicano did! Barresi was also involved with these crimes. Oddly he is proud of this. Defense lawyers cost more that $1550 per hour. Oh but, Barresi is an eloquent communicator and will get off with a small fine by representing himself!

Did anyone expect Andrew Morton's book to be anything other than a flop? Also, now Barresi is trying to get a documentary made where he is goinng to tell the about all the people who burned him. I suppose this means that in a bipolar moment this book is shelved and a film is iminent. This will attract little media attention in any case.

America. He is making far above what many doctors in the subject earn and is busy translating it all into French, Spanish and German where he presents it in news magazines for Euro TV! They don't care who he slept with or not in 1999. He pulled up at a party in Natchez MS in a Range Rover!

Often think about him and what went on. True or not I do miss him.
Posted by: Peter Wall at July 30, 2009 07:26 AM
Who do you miss? Did you know 'red' from WMA or from the residence on Store Street near Russell Square / British Museum. I knew him from Rue due General Bertrand 7th dist. Paris 2004-2006.
& to 'Anonymous,' was he seen in a Mobile petrol station or in Mobile Alabama? he loved NOLA for sure! Spent every Xmas there! Maybe he is in the US South and not deceased. He did travel on a Danish passport so US Embassy would not not necessarily be informed if a tragedy happened. Any danish speaker out there?
Posted by: Rusty at July 31, 2009 10:30 AM
All I know is he was working at Westminster Abbey and had a heap of crap going on. He was seriously into history so I posted him a stack of books I had collected on London. Not much but I figured he would have more use for them than me. Story is that I moved to look after my folks just as he came to London to work. He was really pleased to get the job I knew he had studied really hard before in California I think. Used to exchange a heap of emails and things. Places I liked to go whilst in London... SO I figure it was Store Street. Just nice to see someone write something other than conspiracy theories.
Posted by: Peter Wall at July 31, 2009 01:52 PM
He was my cousin. We share the same grandparents who came to the U.S. in 1938 both for religious freedom (the LDS church was / is much stronger in the N. America) and to avoid the Nazi's. The Danish government issues passports to nationals abroad based on parentage or grandparentage. Anyone with 1 parent or 1 grandparent born in Denmark can claim Danish citizenship! This is one reason that it was so easy for red to "flee to Europe" per Baressi's advice! Barresi is a hypocrite though! He constantly changes his stories (and there are many!) for the convenience of instant gratification - - he has changed stories on Michael Jackson, TC, Travolta, Paul Lynde, Pellicano (who no one cares about) and etc. to fit whatever is going on in the current press. In 2001 Barresi per his own words said "red fled to Europe." Then in 2007 because it was inconvenient for barresi for red to have been in an accident in France, he said "red never went to europe and lived in fontana, California, USA" The latter statement is 100% false! Then Barresi tried to use the fact that no US Embassy had a report of an American national dying in France. Well this is because it was a danish naitonal. Red also lived in Ribe in the Jutland Peninsula most of '99 and part of 2000. He went back to LA and made some movies and junk. He then lived as a volunteer in Malawi and Mocanbique, Africa. He then returned in the summer of 2001 to LA made some films and moved to Spietx, Switzerland. Then he moved to NYC, made some films, decided that life was not for him and moved to Paris. Finally he got a job in London and moved there. 6 months later he went with some Australian friends on a coach trip around France and was in an accident in Eze. The rest of the details are obscure but Donna from Perth, W. Oz has the best story. She is able to be contacted. Red's & my common gran is turning 100 on 06 august 2009! Wow! Wish he was able to join us for the celebration! Red did also spend a great deal of time in Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Czech Rep, Morocco and Spain. We have 1000s of photos via album and email. If he is indeed alive and hiding I got a feeling that he could be in the US South as he did love NOLA. However I think he could be in Montreal or Manchester, Birmingham, Northhampton or Nottingham, England or possibly Buenos Aires where he has connections. It is even possible that he is downunder. he's been thru a lot so let him resurface on his own.
Posted by: Rusty at August 2, 2009 09:56 AM

I think you are write Rusty. I figure that everyone needs time out to be themselves. I do know that the stuff that went on at Westminster was due to things that had happened in his past. I think it was a bit of a victimisation and he just wanted to be out of the U.K. I cannot blame him really I know that we are all haunted by choices but when those choices are turned against you it's another matter. Wherever he is and whatever he is doing I am sure he is much more content.
Posted by: Peter Wall at August 4, 2009 03:02 AM
Stuff went on at Westminster Abbey? Was it mysterious phone calls from Paul Barresi accusing red of horrendous things and creating a controversy? WMA is a very conservative enviornmentt a place where many famous people frequent. I know that a tirade was created by somebody but red's superiors really stood up for him. He went to France because he has friends there. He did do an MA in Bio-Anthropology & Human Evolution and a BA in European History and he did study at Les Eyzies, Dordogne including Lascaux I & II before that bus route around coastal France starting in Bordeaux and ending near Monaco and Italy with Australian friends. We have loads of records, a clear paper trail which ends abruptly and messages received from several French IP address. It is all coming together. Westminster Abbey, that was a controversal job for red. But, it was not his fault that he was being stalked by a crazy man from 1/2-way across the world.
There was so much Drama instigated by the lies and 1/2 truths posted here + what happened after he left England is even more shocking! I wish I could discuss it with you as I cannot post it here! It is just too awful! I hope and pray red does resurface! He has always landed on his feet and has a lot to contribute! I agree that he is a sound chap!

well suing was not productive in the past and gave Mr C a bad rap and this story is twisted and as Mr. C's attorney was going down with Pellicano at the time this was posted it was to traumatic to do anything but make idol threats. Mr. Barresi was intellegent enough to pick up on this an figure he could get away with a lot due to the circumstances. Harassing red and red's family and tracking him down over 7000 miles away was not cool though.

Well Rusty it does sound like a huge obsession from certain people. I do know that there was a storm at Westminster Abbey. But I would like to think he had a bit of an Adventure whilst in London. I get the feeling he was happier away from it all. I am not sure if he was called or not. BUT I do know his Boss was a bit of a twerp but his colleagues did stand up for him as much as possible.
And who can blame him for wanting to escape whichever way that occurred. I figure he has some tranquillity. I just like to think of him away from the nonsense of what happened.
Was good to bump into you Rusty. And nice to see a bit of compassion about. We all need that at some point.
As for discussing things. I think I am better of not knowing and I do not think I want to know either; just seems like a tangled ball of string. And the truth has become a poor commodity. The saying a lie can run around the world before the truth has got its boots on really does feel appropriate.
Posted by: Peter Wall at August 7, 2009 11:10 AM
The Boss is Jane Bish and she is really a nice lady. According to all red's collegues (note: his job was a rather independant positon) Jane really fought on reds side. What was going on was Barresi was following red all over the world and was ringing up the superiors of Ms. Jane Bish and harassing them + faxing naked pictures of red to Westminster Abbey and insisting that some sort of evil demon was working there. This obnoxious tirade truly created a problem. The public will be silent! The truth is truly coming forward, gradually yet surely. (note: I have interviewed a number of the people involved myself.)
