With people scouring for clues about actors and celebrities and their past behavior, this A+ list host/mogul is worried about a particular story coming to light.
It concerns how he got his start in Hollywood.
Well, it all goes back to then this former dancer/host rejected the advances of a closeted A++ lister. That closeted legend who owned a lot of shows and made his biggest money in a certain format found a willing partner in our A+ lister.
It is no coincidence that the first several opportunities given to the future A+ lister on television were all something the A++ lister specialized in.
All of the producers had worked for the A++ lister before and he called them up.
The rest is history.
Our current A+ lister just doesn’t want to get into that history and prefers a much more sanitized version.
A+ list host/mogul: Ryan Seacrest
A++ lister: Merv Griffin
Former dancer/host: Deney Terrio
‘Dance Fever’ Host Says Merv Griffin Attacked Him
The former host of television’s Dance Fever is suing Merv Griffin for $11.3 million, claiming the entertainer sexually attacked him.
In an interview for the syndicated TV show A Current Affair, Deney Terrio, 41, charged that Griffin, 66, first attacked him in 1978.
Griffin ”fell on top of me and started grabbing me and tearing my shirt off,” Terrio said. ”It shocked me. I was terrified. I kept pushing him back saying, ‘Merv, I’m not ready.’ ”
Griffin’s attorney called Terrio’s lawsuit a ”piece of garbage.” – Source
