Back in 2010, ex-marine and occasional adult-film star Nick Gruber burst onto the fashion scene on the arm of the much older Calvin Klein. For two party-filled years he was truly living the life. Model, boyfriend, party boy. Then, almost as quickly as he had appeared, he was gone (to rehab in L.A.). Now he’s back, and in a recent interview with the Daily Front Row, he opened up about everything from posing for Playgirl (it’s not gonna happen guys) and that Calvin Klein tell-all he’s no longer writing.
He’s happy to be coming back to New York, and although he won’t be a fixture on the Hamptons party circuit, he does have some fond memories of what was once a favorite party locale: “One of my favorite [memories] was a birthday party. Not Billy Joel’s. It was a big, huge party. Not Bon Jovi’s. Not Elton John’s. [Looks up photos on his phone.] It was Billy Joel’s birthday! Bruce Bearstring performed. Am I saying that right?” Erm, yes, yes you are Nick.
So music might not be his forte, but perhaps reality television? There’s sadly no Nick Gruber reality show in the works, but he’s got an idea of what it would look like.
I’d take Anna Wintour skydiving and then make her rock-climb and put her on a motorcycle.
Hey, we’d watch. Good luck booking Wintour!
