Liberace’s Ex Lover Freed From Jail By Bunny Ranch Owner in NYC on Monday

Michael Douglas and Matt Damon in Behind The Candelabra

Scott Thorson, Liberace’s ex lover and the subject of the new smash hit HBO original film “Behind The Candelabra”, has found new life in an unusual place: Dennis Hof’s “Bunny Ranch” legal brothel in Carson City, Nevada.

The movie, starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, has received rave reviews and early Emmy consideration.

After watching the film’s debut, Bunny Ranch owner and star of HBO’s “Cathouse” series, Dennis Hof was shocked to find that Thorson had been incarcerated in the Reno jail since February, unable to post $125,000 bail. Hof put up the bail for Thorson, arranged for top defense attorney David Houston to represent him, and is even currently housing Thorson at his private residence, adjacent to The Bunny Ranch just outside Reno. While residing there, Thorson will be working as Hof’s personal assistant while getting treatment for colon cancer and undergoing rehabilitation for drug addiction.

Debbie Reynolds: We all Knew Liberace Was Gay

Matt Damon and Michael Douglas star in “Behind The Candelabra.”

 In the new film “Behind the Candelabra,” veteran entertainer Debbie Reynolds has just three major scenes to flesh out one of the most complicated figures in piano-playing showman Liberace’s life: his loving but sometimes manipulative mother Frances.

The Oscar-, Tony- and Emmy-nominated Reynolds didn’t need to do any homework for the part. She knew Frances. Reynolds joined Liberace’s inner circle while both were doing stage shows in Las Vegas.

“I tell the story when Lee called me one night after work,” Reynolds remembered, using Liberace’s nickname. “I was at the Desert Inn, he was at the Hilton, and he said, ‘Debbie, I’ll pick you up after the show, and we’ll take Tom Jones. It’s his birthday.'”

“I have never had a better time than being Liberace’s date,” the 81-year-old Reynolds continued. “We all knew he was homosexual. That was a friend: You know what they love and the people that they love, and what they are.”

“Behind the Candelabra” picks up the story of Liberace, played by Michael Douglas, in the ’70s and focuses on his six-year relationship with the much younger Scott Thorson, portrayed by Matt Damon.

Reynolds, who also knew Thorson, highly praised both of the film’s stars. “They had to immerse themselves: two straight men, to make this come off as loving and real.”

Liberace died from complications of AIDS in 1987 at age 67. He never publicly acknowledged he was gay.

“I don’t want him to be remembered just for being homosexual,” Reynolds explained. “He should be remembered as a great entertainer and loved by so many. And this picture does do that.”

“Behind the Candelabra” premieres on HBO in the U.S. and on HBO Canada Sunday. On the heels of its theatrical world premiere this week in Cannes, the film begins a run in overseas cinemas starting in June.
