  • Can’t you refer to someone as a “partner” rather than “gay lover?” It is so much more sensitive and classier. Otherwise your writing just comes across as homophobic and discredits what you are saying.

    • If their were true partners of the LBGT community. They are not, they are straight men who have sex with each other when it suits them. Alex is a closet gay man who is ashamed of being gay and hides the fact that he has sex with a married bisexual man. No offense intended to the LBGT community, these boys are not part of anything close to fitting into the community.

  • So EMI has three places he can stay in Albany?
    Nice of Alex to buy his own place for sleep overs.
    What about the place they bought together? A place for their special organization to stay when they cone to Albany?

  • Rosa Laura may have to move back to 21 Oregon Trail if her POPS cut off her allowance as is rumored to have happened.

  • I just wanted to say you can buy a seriously nice house there for under $2 million. But then you have to live in Albany. And Raniere and his cult mates would be your neighbors. I don’t think I would buy there. Too many crazies.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.
