HGTV Design Star Michael Verdugo Gay porn Bondage
Michael Verdugo was kicked off HGTV’s “Design Star” last night, but the judges cited his “poor hosting skills” — not his gay porn past — for his exodus. There’s a clip from the show (filmed well in advance of its premier Sunday, no doubt) on HGTV’s website where you can see Mikey V in all his clothed, untied hotness (and catch a few glimpses of his telltale tats).

    So was it a coincidence that he was outed right before he was ousted? Was it a ploy to drive ratings for the show and the website up?

    He may be not ready to host a show about interior decorating, but I’ll bet he could host a show on bondage and S&M.

    Please note – the reference to website traffic in above comment referred to the show’s website, not THIS website which doesn’t need tricks and gimmicks to draw traffic!!

    I wonder if he designed and built the porn set.

    I really feel sorry for this guy even though he did not think it through knowing what could surface from his past. The internet keeps those old videos around today. This story is in the mainstream press now and the police department has opened an investigation. They wont comment if he will lose his job. This site is constantly mentioned in all the papers so the hits to this site must be through the roof!

    The clip is really sensuous, and he looks great in it. As far as HGTV goes, they don’t seem to have an issue with a porn past, as the network has featured several porn stars or directors in their shows.

    The Miami Herald reports that Mikey V has been put on administrative leave pending the investigation into this porn tape. This scandal could open another scandal, that is record keeping of porn companies. This porn company is not even in business anymore. If he denies it is him, the easiest way to determine that is find the real guy which would have to be his twin. Not only do they look identical but what are the chances of having not one but 2 identical tattoos in same places. That would be impossible.

    More breaking news…. Mikey V has hired a defense attorney. The defense attorney never denies it is him in the video but only says “he should be judged by his 10 years of dedicated law enforcement to the community” or something like that. He also says he is being targeted because he is gay.
    Since so many cops (gay, straight, male, or female) have lost jobs for actions like this, it looks like it will be an uphill fight.
    Good luck!!!!!!!!!

    I remember when another HGTV star went to Folsom as a spectator, several gay blogs photographed him and posted about it. Many gay people like to go on erotic vacations and then return to their normal lives without co-workers\public knowing about it. Why are the gay bloggers so inconsiderate?

    You know, its amazing to me that Design Star based out here in L.A. would have a problem with Mikeys porn past. The movie doesnt define the man. Clinton was able to keep his presidency after a blow job under the desk. I think its okay if Mikey makes kitchen cabinets!

    Why they run them off of the shows? Why not have more crossover stars? It’s just a different audience. Maybe a guy on a soap opera that does adult films? Why the problem?
