Nick Gruber Gives Most Boring Interview Yet: “I’m Working On My Issues”

Screen Shot 2013-09-11 at 2.54.51 PMCalvin Klein’s boy toy Nick Gruber is putting his fancy publicist to good work this week, showing the world in a new interview with Gay Star News that he’s learned the phrase “no comment.”

We guess it’s never too late to start repairing your image, but he certainly could have started back when he got into a bloody brawl with a man allegedly “touching his junk” in a Hamptons nightclub, or the time he denied ever writing a book about his sexual relationship with Calvin Klein.

If he had, we probably wouldn’t have cared about the time The Post published the juicy details of that book, the time he told NY Magazine he “wasn’t gay,” or the time Michael Lucas threw him out of a gay beach party on Fire Island for allegedly yelling homophobic slurs.

Alas, the 23-year-old model is making his dreams come true this week as he saunters down the runways of New York Fashion Week, so he’s landed yet another interview as part of his lavish “image remake.”

In it, he justifies telling Michael Lucas that he didn’t “want any gay people to touch” him because “five people were getting touchy-feely,” and thinks his ousting was a publicity stunt on behalf of Ascension and Michael Lucas because his “private apology” was forwarded to the media. “Like a lot of people,” he says of his temper, “I’m working on my issues.”

Still, he’s staying tight-lipped about his relationship with Calvin Klein:

Gay Star News: Are you and Calvin Klein still in contact? How would you describe your relationship now?
Nick Gruber: No comment.

GSN: You’ve always been circumspect on how you and Klein met. I don’t  expect that change, but with the fame  glare you’ve been under has there been a time when you wished you never met him?
NG: No, I’m very happy we met.

GSN: While you admit you’re happy met Klein. at least from the alleged book proposal the relationship seems to have been strained from the start. Is it true you were pressured to ‘profess your love?’ What type of pressure was used?
NG: No comment.

GSN: Did you turn down a reality show project from Bravo and what do have to say about the comments John Luciano makes about you in Out magazine?
NG: No comment.

After NYFW, he’ll be “getting in shape” and starting that “extreme sports training company.” Yawn. When did Nick Gruber become so boring?

Guess that fancy publicist is actually working.

    I think what I’m confused about is why do we never get any articles on actual gay celebs or famous gays…you know, Neil Patric Harris, Ellen, Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, any gay CEO’s etc… in comparison to the almost constant stream of articles on this nobody?

  • Mr. E. Jones

    “five people were getting touchy-feely,”

    So a rentboy shows up at a party, and gets pissy that guys want to sample the merch before paying?

  • Stache1

    Yeah, i’m so sure that “tell all” book of fiction about Calvin would be all that interesting.

  • jakesmydawg

    I only see drama and judgment here. What Social Media hole did I fall into ?

  • Cam


    I love the people that try to claim that making a judgement is somehow wrong.

    Lets see, the guy was at a gay party picking fights and calling people Fa****s but how DARE anybody say that that isn’t right.

    Oh, and by the way…your comment was very judgmental of the other posts so you may want to pick up the broken shards of that glass house were you living in.

    PLEASE stop reporting on this LOSER. He’s clearly unintelligent, unattractive, and a complete tool. I can turn on any reality tv show and see the same bullshit. While it all doesn’t have to be news about gay marriage and AIDS vaccines, we can do WAY BETTER to find purely entertaining info than this deadbeat who offers NOTHING!
    Many thanks

    This Queen is late! Next!

  • Ron Jackson

    Little Nicky is looking more like “rough trade” than a runway model. Just sayin’

  • sirald66

    Give Nick room to grow.

    This dumb fuck AGAIN? Please, make it stop!!!
    Why is Queerty all interested in this guy? He bores the shit outta me. It’s clear he has issues and he hides something but some of us just don’t care. Please! Stop making stupid people famous, and stop forcing them on us!!!

  • jmmartin

    @Cam: Maybe because you run out of things to say about them.

  • jmmartin

    @WolfLA: “Unattractive”? You must believe that beauty is ONLY skin deep.

  • Cam


    But there is a lot to say about somebody who has never accomplished anything in life and is not friendly to the gay community? There are plenty of people like that out there, no reason to keep boring us with this future episode of “Law and Order SVU”.

  • DonW

    I know it’s my own fault for clicking on these articles (it’s like watching a train wreck) — but remind me again why we’re supposed to care about this pathetic nobody?

  • GlitterKidder

    “When did Nick Gruber become so boring?” Around the same time that the folks at Queerty became obsessed with the gutter trash. You may quote me.

  • LadyL

    Are we supposed to understand him as a cautionary tale? Is that it?
    And is there some kind of Dorian Gray thing going on with him and CK?
    No, not Dorian Gray…what story am I thinking of…?
