Taut entertainer Wayne Newton lamented the lost love between him and Johnny Carson on Larry King Live last night. Make no mistake, however, Newton’s no queer.
Calling Carson a “mean-spirited man,” Newton explained how the Tonight Show host got his giggles by questioning his sexuality and, quite frankly, Newton didn’t like it. So, after Carson ignored his messages and peaceful pleas, Newton headed to the NBC studio in Burbank and threatened Carson. Says Newton:
I went to NBC, Burbank, and walked down the halls into his office, and Freddy de Cordova, his producer, was in the office with him. And I walked in, unannounced, I said to Freddy, I said, would you excuse us, please?
He was so shocked that he did get up and leave. And I said to Mr. Carson, I said, I don’t know what friend of yours I’ve killed, I don’t know what child of yours I’ve hurt, I don’t know what food I’ve taken out of your mouth, but these jokes about me will stop and they’ll stop now or I will kick your ass.
We’ve never really had any opinion of Newton in the past, but we do now – and it ain’t good.
