Let me “escort” you to some great gossip right off the bat. I’ve gotten my greedy hands on the story behind the reality show that Calvin Klein’s 23-year-old ex, Nick Gruber, was working on last year, not to mention the details on how to finally see it. I've even got a titillating teaser for you to view. John Luciano, the 49-year-old guy whom Nick dated in between his stays with Calvin, explained the show’s premise to me via email:
“In June 2012, a production company connected to Bravo approached Nick about starring in a pilot called Chapter Two. [Bravo's kingpin Andy Cohen says, "There was never a Bravo show with Nick Gruber."] The concept was how non-famous people cope after ending a relationship with famous people. If Matt Damon dumped his wife Luciana, she'd qualify. If Ben Affleck dumped Jennifer Garner, she wouldn't, since she was famous pre-Ben. Not that you needed that explanation, but after dating Nick for nine months, I now tend to over-explain everything.
“Nick passed on the Bravo project, and 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.” Ba-dum-pum. John’s here till Thursday, check out the ribs platter.
“We started filming in the fall of 2012 between Orange County and West Hollywood,” he went on. “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. 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 first episode hits YouTube in a matter of days, with a new episode running every week. Watch this little teaser with your sugar daddy. And don’t ever let go of him!
