Morales Melodrama: Nancy Jo Sales on her Spiritual Marriage

groundzero060320_8_560.jpg

The story of Theresa Duncan and Jeremy Blake’s tragic deaths really should become an opera, not a sad little documentary, not a poorly-lit cinema-stylo indie movie. Everyone involved is so dramatic.

Famed writer Nancy Jo Sales, author with the solo byline on Vanity Fair piece, takes issue with Melinda Hunt’s version of events at St. Marks in the Bowery that night in July and on her own relationship with Father Frank Morales.

Morales is begging for a nickname, ala the NY Post–the frisky friar? The popular padre. The ecstatic ecclesiastical, the vivacious vicar, the randy rector, the liturgical Lothario, the cuddling canon, the sexy sacristan.

Let’s hope Father Frank got lots of Christmas gifts, so he can give up wearing Jeremy Blake’s old wardrobe.
