A quick response to the forum's (Mad About the Boy) delirium by the account "B. Mason", Simon Constable and Bret (Edel Man) as they all attempt to make some sense out of the subject of Marion Benda and Rudy.
First of all I say to B. Mason, the Schulman archives are in Los Angeles and not New York.
Secondly, to Constable, you might want to save a bit of face and stop running around screaming “fabrication, no evidence” because there is plenty of it. Your version of events, i.e. the poisoning, etc. which you so carefully constructed to uphold your “fabrications” ...has been proven wrong a million times over and that “witness” you question was the actual cab driver who might know more about the events of that fateful night than you.
It is scarcely worth commenting on this hyped-up and tired old argument that Benda and Rudy were playing canasta or talking politics during those two hours in her hotel room. I comment here in passing on this by telling Constable that phrases like “dropping his pants”, “stripping” and sniggering about Valentino being “firm”...are straight up denigrating to Valentino... yet not surprising coming from the corner of the Valentino flat world where every single mention has to play into the sex obsessed fabrication that Valentino was repulsed by women.
How much evidence can Constable and Bret (Edel Man) and their censor, Terhune ignore? All of it actually. And simply declaring something a “fabrication” does not make that true. Remember when Tracy Ryan Terhune declared all of our first hand proof that Valentino arrived in New York with a great deal of money and to be welcomed by two wealthy benefactors as, “pure fabrication”? He has been tossing this “pure fiction” phrase around for years and it is a favorite ploy of his to just say that. I think he and Constable now sorely underestimate people's ability to be critical thinkers. It is no longer that easy.
I suggest they all go back and read the Cue book, read Affairs Valentino... the most documented book on Valentino... and read again the articles and interviews given at the time by those who certainly know more than a few so-called experts who are hell-bent on not letting their “Valentino was Gay” hoax fall apart. Let me be the first to tell them... it has.
How laughable to see Bret (Edel Man) chiming in lamenting how Valentino's life can not be “broken down” after 100 years. Boy... he sure thinks he is able to do that with his high degree of hysterical fiction about the man. And “Edel Man Bret” announces his latest innuendo based “book” as part of this failed campaign...Perhaps he will finally make one dime so he can pay us the damages awarded to us in the defamation lawsuit we won against him. I will make sure the authorities are well aware of his latest effort.
In closing...Constable says he needs 2-3 sources to believe something? What a joke. He believes Bret's books and I am still waiting for one single source proving their grand theory that Valentino was gay and/ or bisexual. (And no... Leider saying “Bisexuality is always an option” is not proof) If he is such a stickler for proof... why does he not require this at all about that subject? If ever there was a complete fabrication based on zero sources, the mere idea Valentino was gay would be it.
Constable barks how there is no “proof”.... while his entire platform is based on nothing but innuendo and his blithering, pompous and quite failed attempts to convince people he is informed.
Meanwhile, a young Rudolph Valentino at 15 years old, who frequented brothels and got syphilis from having sex with female prostitutes, historically confirms he had no credentials as a homosexual...(as confirmed by Valentino's great-niece, Valentino himself and a letter Valentino wrote to his sister-in-law). To contribute to this “proof” I add a fourth source which would be Valentino's brother Alberto telling Bill Self this was fact. Subject closed.
