Nick Gruber, that
totally straight bad boy we all love to hate, has further extended his 15 minutes of notoriety by joining the cast of America’s Got Talent appearing in a reality series along with former sugar daddy John Luciano. Queerty readers will recall that Luciano indulged the gay-for-pay blond’s penchant for shopping at Barney’s once he split from fashion mogul Calvin Klein.
Michael Musto chatted with Luciano, who explained about the series: “We decided to do a pilot based on our relationship, which was open since I didn’t care who he slept with. Calvin and Nick also had an open relationship, but of a different nature—Calvin would open his wallet and Nick would open his legs.” (OK, we are loving us some John Luciano!)
He said the series was filmed in West Hollywood and Orange County, Calif. (home to one of America’s premiere high-end shopping malls, natch!) last fall.
“We broke up in February 2013 and all that I was left with was a band of gold, the dreams I hold, and countless hours of priceless footage,” Luciano said. “When I was approached by Boondock Films to extend my 15-minutes of embarrassment, I jumped at the chance. It’s being edited into five-minute episodes and the title is Lucky Shot, The Nick Gruber Project. It’s juicier than a Peter Luger porterhouse, but I was 40 pounds heavier when we filmed, so you might want to watch it on a wide screen.”
The series is expected to premiere on YouTube soon and a new episode will be available each week. Gruber only last five minutes? Figures.
