- That Ullman was an honest man.

I think Tracy Terhune fails to comprehend the actual size of the archive Renato accumulated, saved as proof of the provocations we faced year after year from Tracy Terhune himself and his dutiful demons.
I looked up the definition of “gaslighting” the other day and one of the points made was that a gaslighter will try to alter the reality of a situation to their advantage. Tracy Terhune does this by not sharing his provocations. He selectively posts my responses to his trash attacks on us and frames this as if I was the instigator. This is textbook gaslighting, which is bullying.
Year after year he spit on our hard work, wrote feverishly to tell the world we were people we were not. He portrayed and portrays me now as hateful and shady; apparently states of human existence he knows intimately. But is it not obviously some classic projection on his part.
What a tragic person Tracy Terhune is in my opinion. And I do not say that hatefully but as a response and general observation of his endless harassing, defaming and tormenting of Renato and me. Evidence instantly proves it was Tracy Terhune who instigated viciously and with one goal.
That is to ruin Renato and I because we told the truth and worked hard on the subject of Valentino. Now Tracy Terhune denies he did a thing while he sits back with his smug demonic lap dog David Bret and keeps up his obsessively evil ways of bullying me. How about he tell the world what I was responding to?
I am not a hateful person and Tracy Terhune, David Bret do not merit that much energy in the larger scheme of things these days. But I have and will continue to respond and fiercely defend my loved ones and our work. Count on that.
If I were to publish all of Renato's archive on this, it would fill several big fat books. But then the world would know it is not I who live the hateful life of heavy, demonic provocation but Tracy Terhune.
The actual comprehensive file of hard evidence speaks for itself. Tracy Terhune's recently cobbled together, sadly manipulated attempt is just more gaslighting.
Renato and I always have and will continue to live a life of love. Anyone who knows us can attest to that.
But time has not quelled Mr. Terhune's fury over my dear biography of Valentino, Affairs Valentino. I think perhaps no one in the history of the universe has ever hated a book more than he hates my truth bombing Affairs Valentino.
Incredibly after twenty-three years, Tracy Terhune and his fellow “Devil's Angels”, as Michael Morris called them... are still at it. I respond.

If someone punched you in the face and knocked you down repeatedly. And if you yelled at them, calling them names while you staggered to your feet, you could hardly be accused of defaming your attacker. You would be emotionally responding to their attack.
You see Tracy Terhune and his partner in crime David Bret, always to neglect to share just what I was saying/yelling in response to....which would be their unwarranted, thousands of punches they posted everywhere to bully us year after year.
Do I wander around all day yelling random commentary at anyone as Terhune would like you to believe? No, I do not. But I do respond to be punched for years on end and I get mad.
Beginning from the spring of 2010 until this moment, Tracy Terhune has been doing all he could, and can, to impede our right to do business, defaming us with lies and name-calling, censoring any mention of our work, diverting my web traffic on several diabolical, designated hate Evelyn and Renato blogs and for a decade, allied with David Bret to make the punishment even worse.
Now he alleges my responses to all of his abuse and profoundly more is somehow proof I am the aggressor. That is the definition of gaslighting.
I will pass on constructing a long, long list of his terrorizing posts because I have done so many times. I could begin with "You're going to jail!" (video), then "Do you think I am bluffing", and wind up with all those Bibles and Satanic posts he made over the years to make people believe I was insane. "Madwoman of Turin"?
In my opinion, Tracy Terhune is a disgrace to the memory of Rudolph Valentino and he should be stripped of any official role. I believe that not because I am a hateful person, but because he has earned that opinion over the years by maliciously making Renato and my lives needlessly more difficult.
I am writing about the techniques Terhune and Bret et al used as the "team"... as they call themselves and analyzing it all for posterity here:
Well I did not realize that Tracy Terhune is still so obsessed with me and Affairs Valentino. Wow. He has compiled a new website of hate where he has listed all the things I have said about him over the many years he has been bullying Renato and me.
Granted most of the comments were said by other people leaving comments on my blog but Tracy Ryan Terhune is still obviously muy furious. How utterly embarrassing for him. I did save all the e-mails from the blog's comments so the origin of all the comments can be proven btw.
But who takes years out of their life to devote to harassing, ruining and defaming someone who wrote a book on Valentino? Tracy Terhune that's who. It should be flattering I guess that this person has spent decades focused on me and mine but it is depressing all in all don't you think?
I did not bother to read his list and won't. But as his sycophant Simon Constable once told Renato, his fame proceeds him. People all know by now the whole story and however Terhune wants to spin it... he is the one devoting a lifetime to a book I wrote. Have I ever mentioned his book? I think I did once in an interview but it was nothing bad.
To Tracy Terhune I say...Spin your wheels all you want Mr. Emcee. It only reflects very poorly back on you. We all recognize that cheesy blog format as the very one where you have been bullying me and Renato for years on end.
At a time when you might show some compassion for me in my grief you instead create another hate Evelyn page. Kind of a bastard thing to do imo.
Well here are some more quotes for your magnum opus.
Tracy Terhune has bullied us for more than a decade.
Tracy Terhune has orchestrated an online campaign of hate towards us and done so publicly.
Tracy Terhune is cruel and mean spirited and has mocked my husband and I and our deaths for years. "tick-tocking" away...
Blah. blah. blah.
I could go on but I have a life to lead and loving people to be with.
In closing I must tell you that I pity you Tracy Terhune. Truly I pity you. How unhappy you must be and so much time on your hands.
Oh and add this to your list.... Tracy Terhune is pitiful.
I hope someday you find it in your cold, cold heart to extend some gratitude to the two people who worked so hard to discover so much about Mr. Valentino. Odd all in all that you would not be supportive.
Peace and Love and get over it. Breaking news...Affairs Valentino has been out now for 12 long years. Incredibly, after all this time you post your blithering gaslighting attempt to make me...the villain? Me.... the victim/survivor of your decade of blatant bullying and open alliance with David Bret.
Does it not occur to you how insane that blog makes you look? Who takes the time to do hateful things like that? And bear in mind that any rational person recognize that and think...
What heinous things did Terhune do to make Evelyn Floris respond with such passion? It really works against you.

Each book was a great journey which we lived together. It is nearly impossible to find the words to express how fantastic a journey it was and still is in many ways.
We fought hard against our enemies who tried and failed to bring us and our books down. How pitiful they made themselves look and how obvious their jealousy of our discoveries and hard work.
Renato's wall of pride is still up and I will see to the addition of his latest great tome.
Meanwhile, victory reads all of them!

I had a literary agent from 2003 to 2007, who was instrumental in developing what he called, the "armature” of Affairs Valentino. He told me once that some books have a “fated journey”, a sort of life of their own. This book sure has and still does.

I will keep posting more videos on the Rumble account. Remember the blue "A" circle icon will take you to the full play list.
I also plan to figure out how to set up a Channel there where I can read my unpublished book or excerpts thereof. Stay tuned.
Sunday, September 10, 2023
I have set up a rumble.com account where I will be sharing videos Renato and I made over the years. There are a few on there now with many more to come.
You will be able to see the videos without a Rumble account. If you click on the link to this video and then click on the blue “A” icon below the video next to “Affairs Valentino”, the list of available videos can be seen.
If you want to subscribe, follow or comment you will need to set up an account with Rumble which requires verification through an e-mail but it is free. Soon I will have a direct URL.
Renato took many little videos which I will organize there so they can be enjoyed. I will also be posting installments of audio files of me reading an unpublished book I have written. Soon come.

I share the fine commentary from Professor Aurelio Miccoli about Renato's new book. To read Aurelio's original Italian please visit my Affairs Valentino Facebook page.
"I had the good fortune to follow the personal story of Renato Floris to the end, strengthened by our friendship which matured over the years because of our common interest in the character Rudolph Valentino. Renato was a Valentino scholar-researcher and this was facilitated by the fact he held an excellent command of the two languages, Italian and American.
After the publication of many of his studies on the subject, almost always conducted in collaboration with Evelyn, he decided to work on the Italian translation of "My Private Diary". This would be a new and different work from the existing ones, associating a literal translation of the text to the history of the diary itself but also to the historical context in which it was published.
When he realized the seriousness of his illness, Renato felt the urgency to finish his work and so our discussions became more frequent despite the distance (and thanks to WhatsApp) we discussed everything and analyzed all the possible hypotheses on the statements Valentino left, including typos and inexplicable inaccuracies. In short, I a modest scholar of Rodolfo's Italian affairs, had become Renato's consultant.
I admired his great culture, (he worked in the Turin theater school), his subtlety of analysis but above all his intellectual honesty. So when Renato passed away, Evelyn became determined to complete his work and make a further effort for publication, co-opting me as a consultant for the Italian language.
The result is an enjoyable and innovative work because among other things, it reveals previously unknown facts about the true authorship of the various versions of the publication.
Renato also inserts, in the volume, 227 authoritative personal annotations on the text. He expands the analysis of the Diary with thirty-one images of the honeymoon of Natacha Rambova and Rudolph Valentino and thirty-four pages of images taken from the version of the diary which appeared in the film magazine Pictures and Picturegoers in 1925.
All Rudolph Valentino enthusiasts and silent film scholars should know this work."

I realize there might be a certain honor in even having active haters who work every single day of their lives to try their hardest to bury us and our books forever. It goes with the territory it seems.
If I had written some insignificant book on Valentino, they would have laughed it off and carried on. This did not happen because I wrote the truth, Affairs Valentino was and still is a book filled with great content which they will never be able to bury.
It all could have been so different way back when, if they had embraced my new discoveries instead of spreading their false and malicious information about us and the books.
But they have never made their roles in this a secret, being public about it year after year.
No matter how much Valentino memorabilia Tracy Terhune buys, no matter how thoroughly he crams every inch of his life with Valentino trinkets, he does not impress me because he is forever bonded with David Bret and their collaborative and hateful public campaign against Renato and I. All of Terhune's mocking tick-tocking to our deaths and years of posts as ageist cruelties, images of pigs, Satan and toilets, etc., designed to make us suffer, still ring loudly in my mind. His providing a platform for Bret to continue his evil ways targeting us seems to be something some people can excuse. I will never excuse that awful behavior.
Donna Hill has made her role in the collaboration clear by shunning even the mention of any of our books on her "so-called" extensive listing of all Valentino publications. When Renato sent her a legitimate query about this, she passed it off to Bret and Terhune within hours. This because I shared her tale of the stolen court records being exchanged for one of Valentino's shirts. Maybe instead of traipsing off with the thieves, she could have taken the high road and worked towards justice there, i.e. recovery of those records. And fyi, "shunning" is considered bullying.
Cindy Martin, Eleanor Gribbin, Simon Constable, etc. and the various other aliases who work their agenda on their two groups are imo just mean, propagandized subsidiaries of the above...doing their daily bidding to gain favor within the ranks.
Haters arrive when you reach a certain point of achievement imo and as offensive as they all are, I will never be bullied into silence. And today as I perused my files I found the following and thought I would share it with them in regards to the subject of our work.

I am bursting with pride to announce Renato's posthumous book which is now available online.
Sunday, August 20, 2023
We have never stalked those who stalk us. Over the years I personally hid from them as best as I could. I was so traumatized by their sick actions targeting Renato and I, that yes I hid, to avoid even thinking about them or looking at anything they put online about us. Renato was the hero who suffered through paying attention to the stalkers loathsome actions.
But do they realize that in their very act of obsessively stalking me now, they humiliate themselves over and over. Even their meekest stalking-of-me gesture, becomes a belittling and blatant admission that they are possessed by me and mentally unstable by most people's standards.
There is an undeniable desperation and illness in their stalking which comes across as very sad.
Frankly I have more than enough sad these days. So I reject sad music, sad thoughts and sad stalkers.
If these stalkers were loners with no lives of their own...that would be more concerning. But they stalk me as acolytes of the cult and tools of the state endlessly devoted to the leader. I know they are scoffing to read these words and angry at the insights they afford me and others.
I am a cynical person and practical to a fault. It has taken me some twenty years to recognize and accept that in researching, writing and distributing my Rudolph Valentino biography titled, Affairs Valentino, I became the bulls-eye for a cult … the Valentino death cult.
Our truth bombs threaten and expose their true intents.
* I promise to complete the chronology on the above link...and continue on from 2018 to the present. It became too triggering for me to work and with Renato's passing it became impossible.
Thank you for reading.
Tuesday, August 1, 2023
I guess the answer to the question, "What do they fear?" is pretty obvious. They fear the truth. If Renato and I did not discover and share so much truth about Valentino as we did and do... they would not care at all. But they do care and a great deal. That speaks volumes wouldn't you say?
Recently I invited them to debate me on Zoom... and live stream the debate. I had no takers. Perhaps they feel debating me would lower them in some respect but I say that is 100% false. The opposite is true. If they debated me they would be hard pressed to share documentation for their absurdities.
Meanwhile they assault, demean and carry on trying to silence us and I write that in the present tense because it is still going on incredibly. One would think they would tire of their hateful ways and censorship of all our fine work on Rudolph Valentino.
But loyalty to the cult leader is paramount and the followers know there is no grey area in that at all. The meekest public appreciation for us and our work is met with a swift banishment. The beat goes on and on. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. recently pointed out that those who censor are never the good guys.
Renato heroically saved years of their worst posted about us but I have given up looking. It feels toxic and pointless. I do hear from people who tell me, "This has to stop." That would be nice but not holding my breath for that either. The Valentino Death Cult is still thriving and feeding on the prospect of seeing, holding or owning Rudy's earthly stuff. Onward.

It never fails to blow my mind when I hear about more character assassination of Renato and I on the Valentino forums, primarily those run by Tracy Terhune.
What a racket he has going all in all on those forums... as he hides behind the curtain. He forbids anyone to mention us and has historically refused to let Renato and I be members so we could defend ourselves. So its a really one sided narrative. Totalitarian if you will.
In my opinion it seems the height of hypocrisy to outwardly portray oneself as being morally upright and Christian, as he does... when the seamier reality is that I can not defend myself on the forums where our work is being censored and bashed.
How ridiculous the argument Terhune's front people/forum admins make saying no one even speaks about our work on their forums. Hello? They are not allowed to mention us or our work. End of that.
Its kind of curious that he does not realize that all of his efforts over the years censoring us, mocking us, demeaning us in all ways... all of his efforts failed. I still hear from wonderful, intelligent folks who appreciate what we contributed. Thank you, thank you to them!
It is an honor for me to continue the work on Valentino which Renato and I so passionately embraced. I could pity Mr. Terhune for his continued resistance of the new discoveries we made and our books. It is his loss.
And if he has something bad to say about us, or anyone does for that matter... he and they can say it to my face. Let me know where and when and I will be there to let them say what they will. It is really chicken shit to say it all behind my back and not let me have a moment to defend us... and no I extend no pity at all.
Love. love. love. 💓

During the thick of the Italian lawsuit v. David Bret, we hired a body guard at times who called himself Rambo. I never believed that was his real name but it made no difference, he did his job and we paid him a flat 200 Euros each time he showed up.
During a book signing in Turin, he stood at the door like a secret service detail and it made me feel bad. I knew he had children and I just became so angry that it was even required to put him in a line of fire so to speak.
Part of me always felt like I was insane to be that fearful... but I ask... if a cult of lunatics were obsessed with your location, posting every day in tangent about your death, the condition of your corpse in detail, images of skeletons and coffins, etc. etc. you might think twice. You might pay a Rambo to keep an eye out.
Not a whole lot has changed.
The battle for Affairs Valentino rages on.
Sunday, July 16, 2023
Censorship is in the news right now and I am all ears. It stands to reason this is a topic I have a great deal of interest in because for more than a decade Renato and I have been victims of censorship. I do not think any single person in the "Valentino World" would dispute that statement. It is no secret and it is painfully obvious.
The gathered evidence is pretty staggering; i.e. all those warnings issued to the censor's Facebook forum's followers... blaring in bold letters with emojis attached that our names and books were not to be mentioned. Someone sent me a long exchange with one censor in which said censor admonished and explained why I was never to be mentioned.
The gaslighting is also pretty staggering; claiming no one ever mentions our books. They forget to mention that every time they do, the mention is instantly deleted.
I recently heard the comment that those doing the censoring are never the "good guys". People should be given all the information and allowed to make their own assessments and debates should be a regular event.
Why were and are we the targets of this endless censorship? Well it is an individual instance.
It is not a mystery that Tracy Terhune gives the commands on this. In my opinion his ego was threatened and our work challenged his personal version of Valentino's story. He likes to say he is protecting the Valentino family... I ask from what? I think they can speak for themselves and they have never disputed a thing we reported.
It is not a mystery that David Bret is the hired junk yard dog in the censorship campaign; sad pathetic troll that he is. Hated universally and still trying to be more hated.
It is not a mystery that Donna Hill was and still is a tremendous disappointment to me. But the evidence piled up; she was not my friend.
Cindy Martin, Simon Constable, Eleanor Gribbin and their many aliases... just loyal shills of the state, feverishly working to bolster the lies about us.
It is nonsensical really... all this cruel behavior over a movie star who passed away so long ago. I reiterate that the documentation of my statements about this cabal of censors has been collected dutifully for years on end and is no secret. The screenshots Renato captured, and the evidence sent to us over the years, goes on and on, year after year and spills out of hard drives, taunting me to organize and share it all.
Maybe its time for the censorship to stop. Invite me to the groups for lively debates. Discuss our discoveries and respectfully listen. This said... not holding my breath waiting for that day.

With my beloved Renato's passing, I am restructuring our business interests. It is time for a new direction and revisions long over due. With the establishment of a new publishing entity, I will soon reissue the books one by one with updates and fresh perspectives.
Life is ephemeral and with this in mind, I am busy with those new directions. Stay tuned for new links, new books and more of our artful covers.
I am grateful in these days of my deep sorrow for friends and family. And thank those who have steadfastly supported our work through thick and thin.
Below, Renato and his and my great friend, Professor Aurelio Miccoli in Castellaneta:

I move forward from the years of abuse hurled at Renato and I by those cultists who have made little effort to hide their hatred of all the truth we told and continue to tell about Rudolph Valentino and Natacha Rambova.
The personal attacks went on and continue... for decades.... but through it all they failed miserably to tarnish the truth and validity of our work.
It is my wish that people would stand up and call them out for the heavy personal attacks on Renato and on myself and our work. Nevertheless, our work shines through.
Of course it is discouraging they slip by and their deplorable behavior against us goes unpunished. But I move forward with faith and with the hope that even more people will see who they really are and reject them as what they truly are...charlatans and insecure, mean-spirited bullies.
Their gasps of cruel desperation have not gone unnoticed and it is with every ounce of my being I defend us again and again.
Renato Floris and I wrote truth to power and I do so again today.
Love to you Renato! 💓

I invite you all to join me on my Patreon account where I post regularly about Rudolph Valentino and Natacha Rambova.
For the minimal subscription rate of five dollars a month, you can leave comments on my posts and engage in exchanges with like minded people. The reason for requiring a subscription?
As many of you know, I used to leave the comment feature open on this blog, but it was wildly abused by those attempting to censor and defame our work. I was spending all day screening a flood of traumatizing comments with no ability to block the few problematic senders.
It was for this reason I sought a social media venue where I could block those abusing the privilege. Patreon is a great place to do so. I post every day or so and just captured my last couple of posts to show you how it goes with my phone.
Patreon is a new and exciting venue and well run all in all. See you there and look forward to your Rudy and Natacha insights!
The first night I arrived in Turin on December 3, 2010, in our dream-like apartment Renato draped with strands of twinkling lights.... he presented me with the first of many beautiful rings and asked me to marry him.
I will do my best to honor his legacy and continue our Valentino and Rambova research. He finished his last book a few days before he passed away and this treasure in Italiano will be out soon.
Fiat Justitia Ruat Caelum!! Love. love. love. 💓

Rudolph Valentino would be furious with the censorship committed in his name. He was a man who made every effort to embrace all walks of life and freedom of speech and behavior. He was a most modern man.
What would he have to say if he was told that all of the work Renato and I accomplished was being trashed routinely and lied about, shunned and cast aside by greedy collectors who haunt his tomb?
We told the truth and the truth challenged their thinking and instead of engaging us in intelligent debate, they aggressively attempted to silence us.
I posted a year by year break down of their campaign to prevent you all from enjoying our discoveries on https://www.zumayawinslawsuit.com/
I will at some point complete the last few years but our personal life took such a tragic turn it was too much for me to revisit. I think I left off about the time Tracy Terhune converted the unholy blog he ran under my book, Affairs Valentino's title into a very fake and obvious, "Literary Critique". There, he and his partner David Bret unloaded and in their obvious panic they build a monument to their own horrible selves.
I could not deal but at some point I will.
Here's to you Rudy and Natacha! And all love and gratitude to you my dearest Renato!!! 💓💓💓

I have no doubt that those who band together in secrecy in an effort to censor our work, would love to see this blog vanish. Because their purpose was, and still is, to censor and ghost us and our work so thoroughly that we would, for all intents and purposes, vanish.
I think in doing so they sorely underestimated people's genuine interest in the life of Rudolph Valentino. I think they also failed to recognize that many people listened to and read our work and made their own decisions.
We never wrote fiction; here, there or anywhere and presented our work with as much care, thought and transparency as we possibly could. Renato and I worked hard over many years and were dedicated to finding documentation which we sure did.
Renato also worked hard to document the efforts to censor us and captured all those years of hits on us which were never true or welcome. How heroic he was to spend the time to categorize and file the screenshots of the abject gaslighting and cruelty, the alliances, the subterfuge. Because while they think themselves so crafty and clever, they are not. Connecting their obvious dots would be a task that could be easily accomplished by a child.
All in all I foresee a time real soon when their years of gaslighting the public about who we are and censoring our work royally backfires on them. They will be asked why they prevented legitimate research and new documentation about Valentino and Rambova from being praised and embraced.
I have heard all their pseudo noble and feigned authoritative replies..."We were protecting the family", "it's all fiction", "It's all a money grab" and blah, blah, blah they wail and have for years on end.
All lies... and while their actions or lack there of will reveal their real intentions, I am extremely proud of our work and praise Renato for his tireless research and honesty. We survived their unthinkable behavior and I will continue to do so.
This blog is a thorough record of what they did and how it all came down. It's going no where and it will continue to waft across cyberspace now as my voice and our truth.

I have been sorting through bins, boxes and digital files, organizing both Renato and my and Michael Morris' physical archives. Granted these days most of the archive is preserved on hard drives, but the physical archive is impressive in content and size, consisting of some twenty containers; plastic bins of letters, books, photographs, negatives, newspaper clippings, printouts of articles and endless source materials.
The containers are heavy with the decades of research conducted. Despite my hours and hours spent scanning the materials with the intent of sharing it all as a digital archive, most of the materials still remain unscanned. My role as the custodian of this valuable material is a sobering position and one I take very seriously.
What is the reason for my mentioning this today? Because this physical evidence of the work conducted into the subjects Rudolph Valentino and Natacha Rambova stands as the reason. The reason being that this research material represents a great and successful, scientific quest for the documented truth.
I need not delve into the history of the censorship of these discoveries contained within this archive. The censors know what they did and still do and why.
What is their reason for still tragically attempting to censor this great work?
I believe they do so in an effort to add value to their Valentino identities by simply obeying. Their reason for obeying is to enhance their value to the censorship campaign conducted historically by their leader.
Despite their duty to this censorship, outside their heavily guarded boundaries of this unreasonable obedience and blind conformity, stands this noble mountain of archive...yellowing with time passing by. I am so very proud of this evidence of the work completed and proud of the reason why....being truth uncensored.
Is not censorship always rooted in fear? And oh how they fear this truth.
I will see that this archive is housed in as safe a location as possible and I will digitalize as much of it as I can. This is my mission. The reason why?
Pride. Honor. Respect. And the knowledge that the very reality of truth is after all scientific discovery and documentation... and this is fairly spilling out of these containers. Job well done!
Here follows a tiny portion of the archive as it is being organized for housing today. When I have the full inventory completed I will share that, as well as uploading all the digital files.

I have not received any takers on my invite to debate my haters live on Facetime/Zoom. I find that very telling. After all these years and years of their trashing Renato and my work with utter abandon, when push comes to shove they fear a face to face to debate and also fear my being a member of their Facebook groups.
In addition to my previous request, I ask that I be welcomed into their two Facebook groups, Mad About the Boy and We Never Forget. I think this is a fair request considering all the work Renato and I accomplished on Valentino and Rambova. What do they fear?
Because if they did not fear us and our truthiness, they would not care at all if we were there. I think some lively debates would inspire their audiences to appreciate the truth and it is with this in mind I issue my request.
(Below)... love, love, love and I miss you both so very much! Hero and heroine! 💓💓
