Quotables: Everything You Never Wanted to Know About John Travolta’s Secret Gay Adventures

“His preference is Middle Eastern or guys with dark features. His taste has changed over the 15 years that I’ve seen him visiting spas. First he strictly liked black guys. For the longest time if you weren’t black, he didn’t want you. Then he was into Middle Eastern men. Then it was Mexicans and other Hispanic guys. Then he moved on to Koreans. I guess he doesn’t have much of a preference any more.”

- Robert Randolph, author of You’ll Never Spa in This Town Again, on John Travolta’s taste in men.

I mentioned this book a while back, and it still hasn’t been released, but Randolph had quite the (NSFW) chat with Gawker.  That little quote above is by far the tamest excerpt – I didn’t want you guys to unwilling glance over one of the quotes explicitly mentioning Travolta’s dick – but it still makes me smile.  Randolph seems like such a catty man, doesn’t he?

By the way, he says that the National Enquirer gave him a lie detector test on the subjects of Travolta and spas, and he totally passed. So either he’s telling the truth or he’s a sociopath.  You go ahead and make an educated guess.

Yes, Despite the Inconvenience of Dead Dogs, John Travolta and Kelly Preston Have Confirmed That They are Having Another Kid!

Both John Travolta and wife, Kelly Preston, took to their personal websites last night in an effort to put a stop to the rumors (and not tumors, which is what I originally typed) that the couple is expecting another child. Because they are, in fact, expecting another child and wanted you to hear it right from the horse’s mouth.

From John’s website:

It’s impossible to keep a secret … especially one as wonderful as this. We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family.


John, Kelly and Ella

I’m going to go out on a limb here and at least assume that they’re talking about a child … they probably wouldn’t be getting another dog yet; not so soon, anyway.

From Kelly’s website:

It’s impossible to keep a secret … especially one as wonderful as this. We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family.


John, Kelly and Ella

Oh, damn, guess who’s not original! Ah, well. It took Preston’s site for-fucking-ever to load anyway, so I guess it’s John’s career (and much, much cooler-looking and faster-loading website) that is the priority in this marriage.

Anyway, congrats, kids — and good luck for a happy and healthy pregnancy and delivery!

John Travolta’s Dogs Were Killed at an Airport and Other Bad Omens

According to airport officials, it was confirmed early this morning that actor John Travolta’s dogs were, indeed, killed on the tarmac of the Bangor International Airport in Maine. The incident occurred this past Thursday and the news story broke this morning about the demise of two of the family canines:

“At approximately 1 a.m. on Thursday, May 13, 2010, an airplane carrying members of the John Travolta family landed at BIA. While there, two small dogs were taken for a walk by someone who is not a family member. An airport service pickup truck was approaching the airplane to service the airplane and did not see the dogs. Unfortunately, the dogs were struck and killed. The airport is investigating the accident. Out of respect for the family’s privacy the city will make no further comment.”

An email was found by the Bangor Daily News outlining the incident and the aforementioned statement from the City Council confirmed that the two dogs were owned by Travolta and were killed by an airport services pickup truck. The report did not state whether or not the dogs were on leashes.

I really feel for you, John. Even though you’re one of those kooky Scientologists, you seem like a good guy and all-around fabulous actor. My favorite role that you played definitely had to be Bobby Long in A Love Song For Bobby Long. You’re epic and amazing. But shit. Bad stuff, John. It seems like tragedy follows you wherever you go, and for that, I’m sorry.


John Travolta, Kelly Preston

“It’s meant the world to us. We know that we have a community. We know that we have friends. And we know that we are loved. We appreciate it. Jett appreciates it. We love you, Ocala.”

– John Travolta, in a touching speech to the town of Ocala, Florida before the premiere of his new flick, Old Dogs. John and the rest of the Travolta clan have remained more or less private since the shocking death of their son, Jett, and have been finding refuge in the small Florida town that John considers to be an adopted hometown.

Travolta Family Looking Good!


The Travolta family made their first official red carpet appearance since the death of their son and brother Jett.  The occasion?  The premiere of Old Dogs starring … the whole family!  Specifically, it’s an acting debut for John and Kelly’s daughter, Ella Bleu — it was her night.

Also there:  Robin Williams with his very grown up looking daughter Zelda, Billy “Yes, I’m Still Alive” Idol, a virtually unrecognizable Joey Lawrence, and Lori Loughlin who was sporting the pointiest chin I’ve ever seen.  Were chin implants this summer’s designer dog carrier?

Travolta Extortion Retrial


The John Travolta extortion trial — an ambulance driver and his lawyer tried to extort $25M from the Travolta family in connection with their son Jett’s death — in the Bahamas lasted a month and went to jury deliberations yesterday.  Shortly afterwards, the judge called a mistrial alleging possible juror misconduct.  Apparently, a local politician made a televised speech in which he said the defendants had been acquitted.  This isn’t good.

So, new trial.  Everyone will have to go through the pain and anguish of testifying again in hopes of attaining justice.

John Travolta Testifies


John Travolta appeared in a Bahamian courtroom today and testified in the extortion trial of an EMT and a former senator who tried to extort $25M from the Travolta family following the death of Jett Travolta.

With wife Kelly Preston in the courtroom, Travolta recounted the details of what happened on the day Jett died.  A nanny alerted Kelly and John that Jett was ill.  They went downstairs to discover a caretaker doing chest compressions on their son.  Travolta immediately aided in the CPR, but to no avail.

Travolta also testified that Jett was autistic and suffered from seizures every five to 10 days.  After suffering a seizure, he’d typically sleep for 12 hours.

Finally, the truth comes out!  Though the reference to autism was indicated on Jett’s medical documents, this is the first time John Travolta has openly and verbally admitted this.  I didn’t think Scientologists even recognized autism.  I’ve tried to research this, but the most I can gather is that Scientologists believe mental illnesses and disorders are psychosomatic and can be dealt with through spiritual healing.

It’s too late now, but I can’t help but wonder if there was a medication that could have helped to control this kid’s seizure disorder.  Many of you know that I feel strongly about the topic of Autism Spectrum Disorders.  It feels really easy to blame the Travolta’s for not acknowledging their son’s condition, but what good does blame do now?  Their son is gone.  And that is so. Sad.
