The Final Chapter of Bobby Purcell

Thanks to the ingenuity of fellow LJer, explosivo, I was able to track down the webmaster of Bobby's website. I spoke with him at length about Bobby Purcell. It seems his little brother was Bobby's lover for a year and Bobby also lived with the webmaster and his girlfriend for some time.

The conclusive information is Bobby Purcell is his real name. He has been running the "I have a book coming out on Simon & Schuster and I'm going to be on Oprah" for some time with a number of people. His scams are repetitive. He is now homeless and hustling.

From the very first email I received with this incredible offer, my radar was up. It was just that I wanted to believe so badly that I let my emotional guard down. It took me a step back but I refuse to let this grifter affect something so central to my mental health as my faith.

5 Things cribbed from explosivo

1. In your opinion, what is the nastiest, worst tasting food?
Coffee, cilantro, onions, garlic, marzipan, alcohol
2. Who on your friend's list did you add just because they were cute? No one. Honest.
3. If you had a bunch of money to spend on a vacation, where would be the first place you'd go? Morocco (ever since I read "The Sheltering Sky")
4. Did/Do you ever cheat on tests in school? High school geometry. A friend stole the test the day before and I wrote all of the answers on the bottom of my fingers. I got an A in a class where I was pulling a C. Also my teacher, Mr. Deptuch, was one of the sexiest men I had ever seen (along with "Donald Hollinger" - Ted Bessel from "That Girl") and still remains my proto-type.
5. If you could go back and change one thing about today for the better, what would it be? I would have added some important items to my conversation with the EP on a show that I am targeting for producing.
