Vintage BV: Rusty Busty

Happy Holidays from Blind Items Exposed!  In celebration, here is an oldie from Ted Casablanca and the Awful Truth team.

One Homo Helping Blind Vice - February 1, 2007


Moi, I can hear Defamer now: Casablanca, more gray, less humpy, shocks readers, runs thinly veiled homosexual Blind Vice. Or something of that deadpan ilk they ooze so well over there. Yeah, well, get used it, is all I have to say. 'Cause, yes, yet another H-town fairy is preferring to have his fancy day-spa activities end with a palm-on-privates finale! And that palm to which I refer, natch, belongs to a handsome masseur, and the genitalia are attached to one...Rusty Busty—general nice dude and award-winning actor—about whom fans know very, very little (and, trust, Rust loves it that way). Now, isn't it interesting: Over at the superluxe Turkish Pavilion spa, where it's like a posh living room set around a series of pools, steam baths and treatment rooms, employees are expressly forbidden from venturing down into clients' nether regions. In fact, they're friggin' fired for it—if they get caught. (Granted, if the opposite occurs, as it has, certainly more than once with an Academy Award-winning actor, the client is forbidden from coming back, as it were, ever again.) So, ain't it veddy interesting that more than one male-kneading type is willing to risk his vocation on the chance to finesse all round Rusty's impressive...frame, as it were. Jeez, Rusty, is that the reason you're consistently unmarried? (Hey, at least you're not busy telling us media folk ya just haven't met the right babe, and for that, I'm terribly grateful.)
And it ain't:  Brandon Routh, Sean Hayes, Wentworth Miller

Also eliminated - Jeremy Piven

Top suspects were - Adrian Grenier, Matthew Perry, Adrian Brody, George Clooney, Chris Noth

"Dear Ted:
Here's my guess: Rusty Busty from One Homo Helping Hand Blind Vice is Jeremy Piven. Would you really tell if someone guessed right?!

Alexandria, Virginia

Dear Curious:
Nope on Piven, but certainly close, pro-gig-wise. Less hirsute, a tad younger. And, yep, sometimes I do take pity and answer Blind Vices. So, here's my commitment from heaven: more Blind reveals in '07!"

Also, the top suspect for the 2nd actor mentioned in this BV (academy award winner) was Kevin Spacey. However there is not enough evidence to support this guess really, could be anyone.

Bindi Boo said...

Well, Clooney and Chris Noth are out because they are older than Piven.

AIA's are all on tv shows, and Ted seems to confirm that hint by saying "Nope on Piven, but certainly close, pro-gig-wise." Sean Hayes was in Will & Grace and funny enough, Brandon Routh was in a Will & Grace episode titled "A Gay/December Romance". Wentworth Miller has done a lot of tv, including (of course) Prison Break.

But I wouldn't necessarily say the final three top suspects (Adrien Grenier, Matthew Perry or Adrian Brody) are "less hirsute" - maybe Perry.

And that's all I got! :)

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

I think that the person we're looking for is someone who is known for being exceptionally private about their personal lives, like on a Kevin Spacey level. I'm not sure any of these guys fit the bill. Granted, the only one that I could possibly vouch for not being especially private would be Matthew Perry. He doesn't hide who he's dating or what he went to rehab for (there are many celebrities who, to this day, claim they went to rehab for "exhaustion" when the public knows better).

Plus, he's never won any major awards by himself (though he's been nominated a number of times), except for a Teen Choice Award, which come on. The only prestigious award he's won was an ensemble SAG award for "Friends", and I'm not sure Ted would call him an "award-winning" actor for that track record. And Adrian Grenier has only won local awards. Which I guess leaves Adrian Brody, but there's really not enough to go on to pinpoint him as being the subject either.

*I'm leaving out Clooney and Noth, since, as Bindi said, they're both older than Piven.

I don't think it's any of these guys. Clooney, Noth are older than Piven.

Adrian Grenier is super hairy (hirsute).

and Brody and Perry have been seen with women. Does they ever say they haven't found the right one?

But when Ted says "younger" I think it would be obviously younger, like 8-10 years, not like 4 years (Matthew Perry).

But of all these, Adrien Brody fits the best.

Nickname unavailable said...

oh, except he hasn't had a TV show, so none of them really fit...

Kristen said...

Yeah, I honestly don't think it's any of them either. I wasn't thinking about how the actor was a TV actor because of how Ted phrased the clue, but if that's true, then Adrien Brody's out, too.

Tanagra said...

I'd wondered if this might be the Michael C. Hall blind item. Timeline is about right if his BV takes place before his second marriage but after his first divorce. "Rusty" for his red hair. I dunno.

He doesn't seem like the Turkish spa type, but he's got the secretive, award-winning tv guy part down.

Guesswho said...

The BV says it is someone who is consistently unmarried. I think this rules out Michael C. Hall who was married from 2002-2007.

I also agree that it isn't any of the top suspects. This sounds like someone who is flying under the radar and who isn't trying that hard to pass as straight.

Cecilia00 said...

Does Edward Norton fit?

Clancy said...

Hmm, he definitely has the secretive private life thing covered but does he have a nice-guy feel? I always get him mixed up with Christian Bale.
Is Leonardo di Caprio already taken with a name? I went searching for the list but couldn't find.

Tara said...

What do you guys think about the possibility that the reference to the Academy Award winning actor was meant in reference TO Rusty Busty? I took it as a hint as to what kind of actor we were dealing with....not that in addition to Rusty Busty, there is another AA winning actor who gets a happy ending at this spa (I am thinking the Argyle in WeHo at the Sunset Towers--offers "Hammam" ie Turkish Bath experience).

Kristen said...

You know, it's funny. Last night, I had a whole list of reasons thought out as to why Rusty Busty was likely Sean Hayes, until I looked again and saw that he was an AIA. So if we are to take the AIAs as hints, maybe someone similar to Sean Hayes?

AndreaE said...

So ... "nice dude", "award winning", "fans know very little", "impressive.. frame", "unmarried" ...

Then, "Nope on Piven, but certainly close, pro-gig-wise. Less hirsute, a tad younger"

For me it was totally pointing towards the amazing Jon Hamm! Known to be exceptionally nice, won awards for Mad Men, Personal life not splashed across tabloids, Great body/build & unmarried. Then, critically acclaimed show [Entourage once was - well, kinda!], less hirsute? Possibly ... & a tad younger than Piven at 39.

Then of course I saw the date in 2007. Feb '07 was a few months before Mad Men began. So yeah, back to the drawing board!

Guesswho said...

When Ted said that he was similar to Piven "pro-gig wise", I took this to mean that he was on TV, possibly on cable, or even HBO. Or does he just mean that he's just an actor?

Some of my top guesses were Hank Azaria and Peter Krause but it turns out they are similar age to Piven, 45-46 y/o. Then I thought of John Corbett but it turns out he's 49 years old!! Wow, dude looks good. I'm out of guesses now but I do wonder if its someone on an HBO show.

I said...

AndreaE: and another reason it can't be Hamm is b/c that gorgeous man has been in an LTR with Jeniffer Westfeldt since forever. She is his partner, they are living together, so he would have found the "right babe" and thus is eliminated as a guess.

Love Jon Hamm!

AndreaE said...

"She is his partner, they are living together, so he would have found the "right babe" and thus is eliminated as a guess."

True ... but he's been with her since the 90's & remains "consistently unmarried" & as he's clearly in a relationship he wouldn't be running around telling the media that he just hasn't "met the right babe".

Anyway, the dates don't work so it's all pointless anyway!

cassandra said...

i think this is Adrian Brody, i've never seen a blind that fit him and this matches with Ted saying Brody's BV was "back when he was interesting"
