A Response from Renato Floris

Sometimes, reading the delusions written about us which good Samaritans often send our way, it seems I am living in an episode of Twilight Zone, perhaps with Jean Guglielmi Valentino as a sound engineer. Yes, I read and I am amazed, actually less and less, when I read statements such as:

“Gladiolo”, as the porn fiction writer calls me, so he can mock a photo of me with some gladioli.

I am amazed when I read his claiming I did not receive the texts of Florey's “Inoubliable, Inoublié” etc., etc., from the BNF (The Biblioteque Nationale de France). That is a lie.  Of course I did. What does this villain know about what I do and, above all, how I do it? If I state I received Florey's manuscript from BNF, it is because I did. I respond to being called a liar, by saying I never lie. I do not need to.

This same villain goes on to claim that Valentino's venereal disease was invented by Evelyn. He fails to mention that if the disease was really invented, it was by Valentino himself. At the age of fifteen, he wrote to a friend how he had a venereal disease he caught from Taranto prostitutes and went on to write he was suffering a great deal from it.

Following the villain's claim this was a lie, was Valentino lying? Was his brother Alberto lying when he told this to William Self, who reported it to Evelyn? According to the villain, maybe Jeanine Villalobos is also a liar because she talks about it extensively in her doctoral thesis.

But he is not alone in this kind of demented delirium as there are other characters joining in also worthy of a Luis Buñuel film.

Just to give an example, I quote what was written by another wicked creature who seems to only find peace trying in every way possible to harm us. I do not need to even name this person because to those who frequent this blog, she is easily identifiable. I quote a significant passage from this lunatic's delusions:

And what about this sarcophagus story? · Who really believes that Evelyn discovered all this? Just because she brought it out after decades means nothing.”

Evelyn did discover the sarcophagus and it is a fascinating piece of Valentino's history, which is documented by e-mails and photographs. Again we do not lie because we do not have to. And, in another post she states the following:

When the initial printing of 'Affairs Valentino' was published, I had already been talking with certain parties of like mind to get this book removed from the bookshelves. We were successful in Europe and in the United States. The reason that I participated in this effort was simple, in my mind. The book was a book of lies. I felt it contained forgeries and false information. I felt it contained misleading information, which may have had truth to it but was twisted in such a way that it made Rudy's life into a lie. I felt that Zumaya had already obsessively sensationalized Rudy's sex life. And that was before Zumaya got started on Natacha.”

This is an admission by this person, that they willfully impeded and impede our right to conduct a fair business. An admission of guilt. And Evelyn did not sensationalize Valentino's sex life and did not twist her documentation into lies. She did not forge documents and this is defamation to say so. It is incredible this lunatic admits to participating in having Evelyn's fine effort, Affairs Valentino, removed from sale.  

And then the wicked lunatic proudly reaffirms:

So yes, I did play a part in having the first 'Affairs Valentino · removed from the bookstores, but it had nothing to do with money as far as I was concerned. In my mind, if a book is written and it is fiction, it should state that and not mislead the readers to think it is a true-life story. Evelyn did not do that. She presented the book as Rudy's true life story.”

As Michael Morris wrote, “Affairs Valentino is the most well-written and best researched book on Valentino.” It is not fiction and Evelyn sourced her work to some 40 pages of citations so anyone can check the story. 

Evelyn presented Affairs Valentino based solely on what she discovered and what she verified about the story of Valentino. She worked years to find those court records and other archives to document her statements.

I advise this vicious, delusional person to go easy on prejudice and check her facts before going on the attack just to harm a person whose words she does not agree with and a person she has a personal vendetta against. This behavior is very criminal IMO.

I add that neither Evelyn or I lie, because we have no need or reason to.

    1. Also imo odd she would word it that way to say she, "did play a part in" having my book removed from sale back in 2011. This because the only person who would lay claim to that, at that time, would be Donna Hill. In 2011, there was no Cindy Martin. Hill was Terhune's main gun in those days and I think she still is.

    2. That's very interesting. O'Martin didn't appear on the scene until around late 2015. I doubt if the present incarnation of O'Martin has any power to pull books off shelves. She can't even remain on an FB forum very long.

  3. Wow, I didn't know they had the book removed from bookstores. That is really terrible.

    1. Yes. They did. And I am sure still try very hard to do so.

    2. What was their reasoning for having that book removed?

    3. They claimed it was defamatory and swarmed it online, posting lies about me having a drug past (which I certainly do not), claimed I forged documents (which I did not), and claimed all kinds of irrational things. It was frightening and I decided to take Affairs Valentino out of print to make the attacks stop. It did nothing. A year or two later we started publishing it again. They never had a reason to go after the book except that I said Valentino was not gay and I found proof Ullman was a hero of the story, etc. Many things they wanted to silence. I have just fought ever since to have some truth about the book and us out there.

  4. Bravo! Renato, there is no reason to lie about anything. As a certain PFW whose name is not worthy of even being typed on this blog and of course a certain woman who only lusts over Valentino professing themselves to be experts which they are not. But who only shows how totally ignorant they are about documents and wants approval from Lord Terhune, aka The cult leader and who are trying to make Evelyn and her followers as a cult and who twist comments to make it look like She is the villain. Pathetic, that is what I say to them.

    1. Well I included a foreword in the first edition... because throughout the previous year Bret and Terhune ruined my online search with insane, deranged lies. Every word I wrote in that foreword was gospel truth and still stands true today. Everything I predicted they would do, they did, continue to do and more. That foreword was not deranged, as they love to say.. it was truth and exactly what happened, was supported in a court of law in the case I won v. Bret and is documented to hundreds upon hundreds of screenshots. Yet the actually "deranged" ones... continue to bellow their tired old lies trying frantically to ban my books in order to please their cult leader. Sad sycophants. Wake up I say.

  5. Epic response, Renato, to the lowlifes who can only attack Evelyn Zumaya because that is the only talent, however weak, they possess. Particularly ugly is the belligerent fishwife who claims some sort of kinship with Natacha Rambova (her cousin's brother in law's grandmother once babysat the son of the stepdaughter of the great grandfather of Natacha Rambova's 10th cousin twice removed). Her one moment of triumph is supposedly possessing the power to have books removed from shelves in Europe and America. What a joke! This dragon doesn't have the wherewithal to get her cable upgraded. If she wasn't such a shameless liar, one could almost feel sorry for her, since she is so consumed with jealousy, especially over Evelyn Zumaya's friendship with Michael Morris. Even her idol, Terhune, has banished her several times from his forum. Gribbin and Constable gave her the old feces emoji cancellation on MAtB. No wonder she is now in free fall and desperately courting the despised David Bret. Karma always comes a'knockin.'

    1. Poster at 3:21, I agree with your observation that Natacha’s ersatz “cousin” (ha!) is at her most poisonous when she attempts to discredit Zumaya’s rich relationship with Michael Morris. That tells me that she spent much energy courting Morris herself, and, as is only fitting, had the door slammed in her face. He did not suffer fools and she is as foolish as foolish gets. She certainly boasts about her instrumental role in the Zumaya book banning campaign. Why she believes this is a calling card or a credit to her in any way is anyone’s guess.

    2. The campaign to ruin my work Affairs Valentino was organized before the book came out in 2011. They claimed it was all mock, fake, that I was insane, etc. and rejected the testimonies of the Mennillo and Ullman families and Bill Self. I wonder how they think I came to have all those family photographs and how I could describe Bill Self's home in great detail? How did I find those court records? How were they fake if Donna Hill told me about them? They loaded the internet with lies and posted vicious commentary everywhere. People who trusted they were reading the truth came to believe it. But not so much any more. People are more critical now and recognize their hand in this. For anyone to brag about removing a book based on court records (which I cited to publicly archived documents) and the histories of George Ullman and Frank Mennillo's families... well it is a disgrace. They need to clean up their sorry act and stop working so hard to please the leader. It is gross to recognize their groveling.
