Authors With Brimfuls of Celeb Sexcapades

There’s nothing much we can add to Gawker’s video footage of Samantha Knoop pretending to be “JT LeRoy” at the Sundance film festival (confirmed by the Observer), so we’ll just have to make do with comparing LeRoy’s fabricated tale of a fling with a closeted celebrity to yesterday’s Page Six revelations about New York restaurant critic Gael Greene’s stories concerning her carnal exploits with Clint Eastwood, Elvis Presley, and porn star Jamie Gillis. Not that we don’t believe Greene—far from it; we just wanted to give Knoop a visual pointer on how to age gracefully if she’s bound and determined to keep this up.
