Vincent Gallo hooked up with a famous closeted writer

Who was it? I can't tell from the following (old, I admit, but I just noticed it) blind item from HX Magazine:

You hustled? I did do sexual things for money. With men, I’ve never performed or had fellatio performed, but I did do jerk-off things. I would go in a peep booth and watch straight porn and get paid 5 or 10 dollars to have somebody watch me masturbate.

Anyone famous? Yes! Yes! Very famous, yes! Let’s say a famous writer who doesn’t have what seems to be an Italian last name but he’s an Italian-American.

    Is Paul Auster Italian-American? Who else... Gore Vidal?

    He doesn't say closeted...

    I'm out for the weekend, btw.

    Why else wouldn't he say the name? Discretion? I suppose...

    Where are you going this weekend?

    I really wonder which Italian-American major writer he means...

    Also, 5 or 10 dollars? That's a seriously low-rent hustler, even for what he's talking about. That's like a crack whore.

    Girlfriend's brother's wedding.

    Also, I don't believe a damn thing Vincent Gallo says about anything. He's just creepy enough to make up stories about being a ho.

    Oh, that didn't even occur to me. I'm so gullible when I want to believe something.

    I still wonder who he means, though. I mean, I think he's so creepy that he's creepy enough to have actually done what he's talking about.

    It just bugs me that I can't figure out who he's referring to... Maybe it's someone old or dead, since presumably this happened when Gallo was very young... When did Gregory Corso die?

    Go nuts. Remember, not an obviously Italian last name.

    Anna Quindlen?

    Heh, that's a pretty picture.

    Thanks for the link. Maybe you're right and he's just BSing. I don't see any male authors on that list who fit his description... He must have had someone in mind, though, even if he was lying...

    The best guess of a professor I know with an encyclopedic brain was Gay Talese, and he was unhappy with that guess, so my thinking is that VG was either BSing or has a funny definition of "very famous."
