Geraldo Rivera Bares It All
I've been told my whole life that "everyone" finds some bodies (ones with breasts) beautiful and others (ones with pecs) disgusting, so I'm leery of people trying to dictate what I find attractive. No matter what your body type is, someone thinks you're hot, and you should have the right to display your physique without ridicule.
In his 1991 tell-all autobiography, amid endless discussions of bedding every woman on Earth, Geraldo describes a wild night in 1972 with Rudolph Nureyev and Mick Jagger -- but cautions that the festivities fell short of sexual contact.
He regularly topped the list of "hottest talk show hosts," and some classic moments made him an unforgettable 1980s icon.
In 1988, he invited some white supremacists onto his talk show, and in the resulting melee, his nose was broken.
Later in 1988, he hosted a tv special about Satanic Ritual Abuse, breathlessly claiming that there were millions of Satanists in the U.S. kidnapping thousands of kids every day for ritual sacrifice and murder. Except he had no evidence.
Today Geraldo continues to make outrageous and often unfounded claims from his desk at Fox News. But he's still a gay ally.
