Tom Katt: Born-Again Bottom Goes “Gay for Pray”
Before there was the tiresome masquerade known around Hollywood as TomKat, there was Tom Katt, a somewhat sexually confused bottom who’s absurdly over-muscled physique garnered him a rabidly devoted muscle-worshipping fan base.
After years and years of working himself out until his body looked like a balloon ready to pop, the larger-than-life star announced his retirement from gay porn with a bang a few weeks ago: Not only is he retiring, but he’s also (a) giving up trying to be gay (b) discovered Jesus and (c) enrolled in the Seminary.It was in a recent issue of the Dallas Voice, Katt — now David Papaleo, 36 — declaired that he’s decided to say goodbye dicks in his ass, steroids in his veins and cocaine up his nose … and hello Christ in his heart.
Despite being romantically linked to fellow bigorexic Caesar for several years, his gay/bi days are behind him. To his credit, he makes a point of saying that his interpretation of the Bible doesn’t rule out man-on-man sex. Thanks, guy.
Curiously enough, of course, this isn’t the first — or even the third — time that a gay-for-pay mega-star cracked under the pressure and tuned into Christ for guidance. It was almost two years ago that Ryan Idol started hawking quasi-Christian gear on his website (he’s since shifted to what appears to be a regular old pyramid scheme).
There’s a long-standing rumor that Ken Ryker had a spiritual awakening so strong that he got on an ersatz bully pulpit and convinced Hal, Shane and Vince Rockland into never sucking on anything bigger than a communion wafer.
So stricken with guilt, all three Rocklands reportedly walked off the set of Gino Colbert’s Three Brothers (making it a phenomenal swan song at that). Vince crept back into porn, but Shane and Hal were never heard from again, which is really a shame, since Hal does it for me like few others can.
Is there something inherent about the pressure of being a gay-for-pay porn legend that prompts them to search for a higher power? Or does J.C. just like torturing us fags by stealing away our favorites? One thing’s for sure: Tom Katt’s not going to be the last. Anyone care to wager on who’s going to be the next convert?
