Top Ten Most Beautiful Men – Part 1
I used to think that Denzel Washington was absolutely the most beautiful man on earth. I’d read about him. Nice guy. Family man. Supports our troops. Yeah, yeah, yeah…I just wanted to watch his movies and swoon. Then I found this other guy…..
Don’t worry Denzel, you’re still gorgeous. And no it’s not that you’re getting older. Lots of men get better with age. Look at Sean Connary. Couldn’t stand him as 007, but as Indiana Jones’ dad, well, whoohoo…
So, I was writing a book in my head and I mentioned that to a friend one day. She said, “Why don’t you write it on the computer, then publish it.” Boing! What an idea I thought to myself. So I’m a few weeks and a few chapters into writing this romance novel and I’m having trouble picturing the male love interest. I Googled ‘Native American Male Models’. Low and behold, a whole passel of beautiful, long haired, Native American men. Where do these guys come from?
Anywho, I picked the one I thought looked most like the character in my book, downloaded his picture, and looked at it while I was writing. My muse. Six months later, I’m done with the book (well – the first draft anyway) and by now I’m obsessed with this guy and his hair that hangs to his knees. Denzel is now down to Number Two on the list and I’m drooling over THIS guy. So I start looking for him on the Internet. It only took me twenty minutes to find his name. Moses Brings Plenty. Born on the Res. Raised in Pine Ridge. Lakota Sioux. Actor. Model. Traditional drummer. Inspirational speaker. And, apparently, somewhat of a philanderer. I had no more looked at all the web sites he was listed on and watched a lot of YouTube videos of him drumming, than I found a web site called ‘WomenAgainstMosesBringsPlenty.” Don’t try to Google it – it’s been removed.
The site was set up by a woman who dated him for about a year, and apparently thought there was a future, perhaps including marriage, for them. Then she found out he was seeing other women when on the road with his band, and he was only coming around her for a little hanky-panky while in town. She confronted him and they argued. She started going to where he was playing and asking around about him. Apparently there were many, many…no kidding, many women. The diatribe she wrote on her web site was long, detailed, and very colorful.
I followed the site for about a year. There were only a few comments, mostly from cyber-cruisers, commiserating with her. Then someone who knows him well and loves him a lot, found the site and the comment board lit up. Big time. Hundreds of people chimed in. It was about evenly split between his supporters who didn’t believe this woman, and his detractors, other women who said they had similar experiences with him. Wow. Then the comments turned vicious – insults, racist implications, foul language, threats of lawsuits. Double Wow. And the site was suddenly gone, as in…removed, not there, doesn’t exist, lost to the cyber universe.
Just crazysauce if you ask me. And in all fairness, none of the nasty comments, in fact none of the comments – period – came from Moses or his wife. No really. His wife. Where was pervious mention that he had a wife? But for me the jury is still out. Until I actually meet this guy and decide for myself – Moses…you’re still beautiful. In my fantasies you’ll always be that character in my book. You’re also no longer Number One on my list, but still in the top ten.
