Kevin Sorbo: Versace Made A Pass At Me

A while ago, I ran Kevin Sorbo's remembrance -- as told on the Frank DeCaro show -- that when Sorbo was a model, Gianni Versace rested his hand on Sorbo's thigh.

That had the young model famously responding, "Sorry, but I'm a flaming heterosexual!"

Well, in his upcoming memoir, True Strength, Sorbo adds more details to the story.

According to Sorbo, the designer had an answer for that.

"Kay-vin," he intoned, "in life you must try everything.

"In sex, too, you must try -- with a woman, with a man, with a dog and a goat. You must try everything and experience the entire world."

Sorbo demurred, and says the aftermath wasn't so bad.

"Although I never did get the Versace campaign," he relates, "we remained friends, and I continued to do his shows.

"He was a very bright, talented, charming man."

I agree -- and so does my boyfriend the goat.

Well, I guess the most interesting tidbit is that Gianni Versace was a dog fucker and a goat fucker.

Well as long as not at the same time! That would have been a bloody mess!

You mean some male models have to sleep with the designers to get ad campaigns?!  Scandalous.  Has this been going on for a long time?

Well, the amazing thing is that Versace kept using Sorbo to model his shows (though not for the campaign).

It's not much of a story - an older, rich, powerful person comes on to a younger, attractive person, is politely rejected and doesn't get all vindictive about it. Actually, maybe that is an unusual occurrence

and it happened in the usually vindictive fashion industry...that's the amazing part!

Why does Sorbo keep pushing this story around? Does he think it makes him look fabulous, especially since he adds the faux happy ending?

So Versace was an old letch like every other designer.
