Transcript Penthouse to publish Gobie article in March ' 5. 1989 I MONTROSE VOICE S . By JOHN DIAMOND WASHINGTON (API-Penthouse magazine has broken weeks of silence by announcing publication of an "intimate" interview with Stephen Gobie, the prostitute who had a relationship with Rep. Barney Frank. The March 1990 issue will hit the newsstands the first week of February, according to magazine spokeswoman Leslie Jay. Frank, D-Mass., under investigation by the House ethics committee for his involvement with Gobie, promptly dubbed the Pent house announcement Dec. 28 "a "My guess is the only problem iPenthouse) is going to have is whether to classify it as fiction or non-fiction," Frank said. Penthouse publisher Bob Guccione, in a one-paragraph announcement, said the interview would detail "the subterranean gay s. n the n pital. hottest players." "This is the most intimate interview ever published concerning a sitting member of Congress," Guccione said. Gobie was paid a reported $50,000 to tell his story to Penthouse. In a news conference F'rank dismissed the potential explosive- ness of the Penthouse article. He said it was "nonsense" to believe recent reports that the ethics committee was delaying its investigation until it can review the Penthouse article. Ethics committee Chairperson Julian Dixon, D-Calif.. also rejected such claims, noting that any in formation Penthouse could obtain the committee also could get sim ply by issuing a subpoena. Gobie already has testified he- fore the ethics committee. Frank has not yet appeared before the committee—which holds all its hearings behind closed doors— and has not said whether he has been invited to testify, Frank said he is anxious for the opportunity to show the committee that Gobies charges are un- Gobie has an unlisted phone number in the Washington area and could not be reached Dec. 28 tion began with Frank puliin 1\ ;e kiimvledging late last summ< that he had paid Gobie $80 for se in 1985.

"I said no a few times, but they kept coming back," Turner said. 'I'm glad they did. I said no because I didn't know how seriously they wanted to treat his homosexuality. I didn't want to do a travelogue of his life, nor did I want to do an exploitation story because it was too close to my own life. "I didn't want it to be like the 'Liberace' movies where they didn't adequately acknowledge his homosexuality. If you're going to do a Rock Hudson movie, it into all the corners. "I was persuaded when ABC and the producers agreed it would be a serious study. I knew it was going to be done and felt as a gay man who had shared a lot of experiences that it should be done by what v. Actor Rock Hudson was one of Hollywood's most handsome and virile sereeo lovers whose secret life as a gay man became public knowledge when he became stricken with AIDS. His death in Oct. I<-ltS.r) helped create an awareness of the disease. The two-hour "Rock Hudson" will he telecast on ABC Monday. It stars Thomas Ian Griffith as Hudson; Daphne Ashbrook as Phyllis Gates, his former wife; William R. Moses as Marc Christian, his companion, who later successfully sued the estate; and DianeLadd as his mother. Andrew Robinson, who played Liberace in one film version, is Henry Willson, the agent who changed Roy Fitzgerald's name to Rock Hudson. NBC also has a Rock Hudson project in the works, based on "Rock Hudson: His Story," which Sara Davidson wrote in cooperation with Hudson and his estate. The movie is currently in develop ment with no announced plans for Turner said he felt his own background would help him bring an understanding to the story. "I had been married and had children." he said. "I'm a recovering alcoholic and he was an alcoholic who did not recover. We're both gay. We're both products of the 1950s, although he was older, and we both -nt'ti-n-d in lhat. "You felt you were the only person on the planet who was gay. The thought of being ex eluded was frightening. Rock's secrets were eating away at him and they ultimately killed him. He would not reveal his personal life, even to his closest friends. I think the fact that he couldn't be truthful contributed to his drinking. The alcohol in turn contributed to his promiscuity. He was incapable of having a long-term relationship with anybody. I don't think he was livingthekindoflifehewanted.lt destroyed him." Turner said he interviewed Phyllis Gates, Marc Christian and others who knew Hudson. The screenplay is -also partially based on Gates' book. "My Husband Koi-k Hudson." "The story takes him from 21 to 58," he said. "It begins in 1948 when he got his first job in a movie. He had one line in 'Fighter Squadron,' which starred Kdmond O'Brien and Robert Stack. "His homosexuality had alread- y manifested itself by then," said Turner.
