RETURN OF THE KNOW-IT-ALL: Reality blabbermouth Janice Dickinson — who once slept with Gia — says don't let HIV inhibit your love life
The woman can out-talk and out-name-drop anyone on the planet.
A force of nature who never seems to tire, Janice Dickinson is the ultimate reality-TV star.
Just point a camera in her direction. She’s bound to outrageously perform.
But don't brush off her too quickly.
Before she gained notoriety as the Simon Cowell-like viper on “America’s Next Top Model,” Dickinson was already a bestselling author.
In 2002, she published the juicy “No Lifeguard on Duty,” which detailed her infamous modeling career. The memoir also delves into her pedophiliac father, who molested Janice’s sisters.
That book ends with Janice throwing her dad’s angina pills out a car window while he’s suffering a heart attack. Before admitting him to a nearby hospital, Janice stared him in the eye and yelled, “Die, motherfucker!”
This week, Dickinson released her third book, “Check, Please! How to Pick Up Boys … And Dump Them When You’re Done” (Regan Books, $25.95). And on Saturday, the Oxygen network launches her new reality series “The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency.”
Although she’s an egomaniac, Dickinson frequently reveals her many flaws. The only reason she should be offering relationship advice is because she fails at them over and over again. That same tack is employed on her first reality show: The self-proclaimed “world’s first supermodel” opens her first agency, and the viewer gets to watch her fall on her Botoxed face.
During a recent phone interview, the busy Dickinson orders me to start firing away questions.
Do you have any significant ties to Dallas?
I … [slept with] Debbie. You know, from “Debbie Does Dallas.”
I probably slept with a few Dallas Cowboys, too.
If you’re the first supermodel, then who is Suzi Parker?
Suzi was one of the original supermodels.
She was a 1950s model who was shot by Irving Penn.
She was not a complete supermodel because Suzi didn’t work the runway like I did.
That’s why I’m a supermodel and Suzi isn’t.
And Lauren Hutton wasn’t a supermodel because she didn’t do runway. And she didn’t do catalog.
Lauren was purely a supermodel who had a big Revlon contract.
It’s national gay pride month. In 2006, does being openly gay still hinder a model’s chances for obtaining work?
Unfortunately, it does.
That’s pretty sad. Isn’t it?
Hopefully, as my agency keeps growing, I can help change things.
But even in the fashion industry, when it comes to hiring models, homophobia is still something we keep fighting against.
But I think things are changing.
My son recently bragged to me that he made out with one of his best [male] friends.
So for him and his generation, it’s like being gay or bisexual or whatever is no big deal.
In your book, “Check, Please!” you say that on the first date, the man always pays. Who should pay on same-sex dates?
Sorry to say this, but the gays and lesbians will have to go dutch.
The title of “Check, Please” refers to being on a date and asking for the check to indicate that you’ve had enough — like the “dump button” is always within reach. If a prospective partner tells you they’re HIV positive, is that a deal breaker?
Not at all.
Listen, I once hooked up with [the late supermodel] Gia, who died of AIDS in 1986.
And even if I did know she was HIV positive, I still would hopped in bed with her.
She was gorgeous.
I knew way too many beautiful, wonderful, amazing people who have died from AIDS — Francisco Scavullo, Halston...
And I would never dump anyone because they’re had AIDS.
To me, that’s just deplorable.
In fact, I’d dump any bigot who would say that HIV was a deal breaker for them.
CROSSE EXAMINATION: Scruffy porn stud Damien Crosse on boyfriends, jealousy, barebacking and initiating pee-shy wannabes
BY DANIEL KUSNER
At the mere age of 26, Damien Crosse is already getting old.
When he was 24, Crosse was the youngest performer to sign with Titan Media.
In less than two years, Crosse has already switched companies. He's now with Raging Stallion Studios, and Titan hired Victor Banda — a 23-year-old who could play Crosse's twin.
On Saturday, Crosse visits Dallas for an erotic performance at Club Dallas, a tour stop on ManHunt's "Seven Sexy Sins Summer Tour."
Earlier this week, Crosse was in New York and called my office to tell me what turns him off and what turns him on.
Have you ever been to Texas?
When I was 18, I moved from Miami to San Francisco and was on a train ride for three-and-a-half days.
We stopped in Texas.
But I didn't get off the train.
What exactly do you do on this ManHunt tour?
I do a 10 to 15-minute erotic performance.
Usually, I do ... uh ... watersports.
Watersports? What does that mean?
When I perform with someone else, I get pissed on — in my mouth or on my ass.
But if I'm by myself, I just stand up and piss into my own mouth.
Sometimes I spit it into the crowd a little.
Since you're young and represent the future of gay erotica, what do you think of this trend toward un-safe sex practices in porn?
I don't like it at all.
I would never do a bareback movie.
It's too dangerous.
It's like doing a snuff film.
Some companies are inching toward the Great Bareback Divide. Falcon Studios is considered one of the most mainstream companies out there. And they've recently started featuring oral cumshots and hiring performers who have previously barebacked on film.
I don't mind companies hiring models who have barebacked.
That's not an issue with me.
As far as oral stuff goes, that's something I might be comfortable with.
Do you think riskier acts are hot?
I think it's gross.
I just see the danger in it.
And that kills the pleasure part for me.
Aren't watersports risky?
My research tells me that watersports are totally safe.
Piss is considered sterile.
From what I know, it's supposed to be safer to get a little pee in your mouth than giving a blowjob.
But that's my research.
And I'm not a scientist.
Were you into that brand of kink before porn? Or was porn your gateway to urination erotica?
I was into it way before porn.
There's a video online where you talk about being in seventh grade — how in Miami, you'd seduce local gangsta boys with hetero pornography. And then once they were turned on, you'd charge them $25 to perform fellatio.
Since the age of 4, I was getting into trouble and corrupting my schoolmates.
What did you do after high school?
I went to community college for two years.
Then I graduated from the University of Florida with a fashion-anthropology degree, which was completely pointless.
Did you used to have a boyfriend named Angelo?
Was he a porn star?
He was a fashion model.
My current boyfriend is Francesco D'Macho — he's a Hot House performer.
Is it easier being in a relationship with someone in porn?
It is easier.
To date someone in porn, you have to be open and really cool.
Luckily, my last boyfriend, Angelo, was cool with my career.
Do you have to wrestle with issues of jealousy?
Not at all.
For me, sex is sex.
It's the emotional thing that would make me jealous.
Would you get jealous if Francesco hooked up with Angelo?
Yeah, I think so.
It would be way too awkward — an ex-boyfriend with a present boyfriend? That wouldn't be cute.
Not cute at all.
Your parents are Cuban exiles who came to America in the '60s. Are you living the American dream?
But I really don't know what the American dream is anymore.
In fact, I'm a bit tired of the States.
So next month, I'm moving to Madrid.
That's where Francesco lives.
I love it there.
Does that mean your American porn career might be coming to a close?
Not at all.
They're still flying me out to San Francisco.
Do you cultivate another career on the side?
I just do live appearances.
In Madrid, I might be doing some PR stuff for some nightclubs.
But my career right now is just porn.
I used to bartend a little.
But that became too stressful.
In five years, what do you think you'll be doing?
Hopefully be running my own porn company.
Producing instead of performing.
What's the oldest guy you've ever had sex with?
What's your longest relationship?
Do you plan on marrying Francesco?
I hope so.
I'm expecting it.
Since it's legal in Spain.
Have your parents met him?
They're going to.
He's going to meet my family.
Have you met Francesco's parents?
His family lives in Italy.
Lets say you and Francesco both had your penises chopped off, would you still be in love with him?
He's just the most beautiful person I've ever met — inside and out.
If we had to, we'd have lesbian sex together.
Let's say your biggest fan lives in Dallas.
If someone wanted to impress you while you were here, what would suggest they do?
Just grab me by the neck.
Put me on my knees and start pissing all over me.
Are you serious? Even before, "Hi, how are you?"
How do you coax a newbie into having a pee party?
For me, it's when it hits the mouth.
But it's about being into someone.
You just want everything about them.
Including their bodily fluids.
And since cum is more risky, I think piss is a good substitute.
It's the dirtiness about it. It just seems wrong.
That's what I like about it.
What if a partner has never done anything like that?
First, I'd get them to do it to me.
After they see I'm totally cool with it — and they always think it's really hot — then they'd want to try it, too.
Have you been with a dude who gets hygienically neurotic about it?
The only thing that's happened like that is when the dude gets pee shy.
So they can't pee.
