1.0 out of 5 stars Fairy tales., 24 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Full Service: My Adventures in Hollywood and the Secret Sex Lives of the Stars (Paperback)
Where to begin? Let's start with Scotty's childhood abuse. He is abused by a neighbour and regards him as a 'nice man'. He is then abused by a priest and glibly says that 'even priests deserve to have sex'. Soon half the clergy in Chicago are abusing him, but that's OK, he's making them happy. He becomes a Marine, is demobbed and takes a job in a garage. According to him, famous stars drive in for petrol and proposition him. Without batting so much as an eyelid he services them, and then starts pimping for them too. He is married and has a child, but the poor woman doesn't satisfy his sexual needs so he dips his wick all over town. He never seems to get an STD nor do any of these punters cause any problems in his personal life. He lists a rota of stars named as clients. Unfortunately, all these people are dead and can't defend themselves. I didn't believe a word of this book. It all sounds like a rent boy's fantasy. He doesn't seem to have made a lot of money from fixing up his rich clients (men and women). He takes a giant leap from pumping gas to becoming a ... barman. Utter tosh.

Irrespective of whether any of it is true or not, you lose credibility with your review when you write: "He doesn't seem to have made a lot of money from fixing up his rich clients". He says several times in the book that he never took a penny (or cent) from arranging the liaisons only when he was tricking.

Why do it then? There are too many books out at the moment trashing film stars and the common denominator is that the stars are all dead and can't defend themselves. Darwin Porter is another writer who does this and it makes me very cross. Why do people take all this stuff at face value? Let's have some proof that these allegations are true and then I'll take the writer seriously.
