I'm Done With Kevin Sessums

I just had to mute him on Instagram because I literally cannot take it anymore. Following him used to be funny. I was like, 'What is this absolute clown up to today?' I can't block him because he follows me and consistently likes my posts and I am a "Like Whore." And I'm not the Kevin Sessums troll -- I don't hate him. I just cannot sit by and watch him dive head first into oncoming traffic which is what he's doing in London right now. Sure, he gave up all his responsibilities. He's gloating over the fact that his stanky 6X6 room with a bathroom he shares with a guy named Zeus or whatever like it's a good thing. He lassoes every barista and salesclerk at boutique stores where he can't afford anything into taking a picture with him.

He pulled aside some poor haggard old woman in a museum and told her Lucian Freud would've loved to paint her and then chortled and said, "That's a compliment." There is no place on earth where that is a fucking compliment, Kevin. I'm done. I am not reading any of his Instagram or Facebook posts anymore but if you cunts discuss him here I will likely read what you say because I am only fucking human.

He's in this manic moonshot of a phase that's going to end with him hanging by one arm off the London Wheel screaming, "I NEED TO GET FUCKED RIGHT NOW," and honestly, I want something better for him. I want him to calm the fuck down and apply for section 8 housing in that brutalist old folks home in Hudson. He can go back to wandering around the back alleys getting free day old donuts from the Hudson bakeries and having the local librarians photocopy shit for him. I want better for Sesshie, I really do.

Oh FFS. He lost a pair of his glasses and has been lamenting them ad nauseum ever since.

"Okay - Is it Facebook or am I taunting myself with this memory that popped up with me wearing my favorite glasses I lost again on Friday night? I am just looking on this as mission to solve - finding a pair much like them or getting the tortoise shell version and painting them black or getting them "reupholstered" in black leather - there has to be an artistic craftsman who can meet that challenge - or even writing the company's founder and telling him the narrative to see if he wants to be a part of finding me a pair in his back stock somewhere so it becomes a human interest story about an addled old-man customer being reunited with the glasses his loves. The PR department of Ace & Tate might buy into that. I've already found all the contacts for that. If nothing else, it's a chapter in my next book: Why Do I Always Lose the Things I Love?"

Oh lawdy lawd.

I think the auction of his stuff is upcoming -- Stair Galleries (auction) in Hudson. From his own description of his treasured, I can't imagine that he will make much money. But in any case, expect him to exhaust all the profits in no time -- keeping AirBnB landlords at bay, a long "short list" of "necessities" like the black leather upholstered tortoiseshell eyeglasses or whatever the fuck. Even for HH is stripped Barr Pret a Manger egg bowl and special rate lodging he will be out of cash in no time

There was a hunt of tension with the new best friend/London landlord last stay, I thought. We'll see how long love lasts between those two.

The thing that gets me about this person (whom I had never heard of until DL) is that he always has the same facial expression in every photo and it never matches the sentiments in his posts. I'd expect to see him smiling, teary-eyed, dejected, the whole gamut - at least from A to B - and he's always got that harsh, unlikable, smug sideways smirk plastered on his face. Someone must have praised a picture where he copped that expression and he decided "Finally! My photo face!" and stuck with it from that point onwards regardless of context.

I somewhat sympathize as I'm not photogenic at all and always look like either an idiot, a dog or a snob, but it's probably better to let the moment be the moment and not try to deliver Blue Steel over and over again, particularly when "I am an adorable damaged baby bird" seems to be your schtick.

Yes, R25, but he has economized so much already, leaving behind his Hudson "loft", his earthly possessions and "art," his cats, his dog before that, and he has a small room with a shared bath. London called and who is he to say no? The clerks at Malin+Goetz, at Pret a Manger (home of the spartan "egg bowl"), at Starbucks, they positively squealed with delight (or something), "You're back!"

Honestly what gets me is that he has the nerve to post pics of his hideous home-cooked meals that look like mental institution food from an old movie, like the Snake Pit for example. There's always an oily piece of tinned fish, generic egg noodles, and three spears of asparagus he got at the free box or whatever dumpster he's been hanging around that day. There is nary a spice, an herb, a lil lemon zest, a smashed and finely chopped garlic bulb, nothing. No. It's just Sesshie and his pitiable, noodles/protein/vegetable formula, and he takes a fucking picture and posts it on Meta like he fucking did something. And don't get me started on the cat-hair filled olive oil cakes. He's abandoned/aka euthanized/aka rehomed all of the cats who he anthropomorphized and pretended were talking English to him. Yet still, the rancid olive oil cakes he makes and wanders around shoving down everyone's throats are profusely infiltrated with cat hairs. I mean, how? You can't explain it.

And regarding the black leather upholstered glasses. They were dirty. In every picture he's posted for the last I don't know how many years, both lenses were smudged Vaseline style making his CRAZY EYES look a thousand times crazier. So, yes, his new glasses are very LensCrafters "Got 'em at the mall" but honestly I think they dohim a favor. Without the smudgy eye he looks 10% less Miss Havisham than he used to.

R65, as a HRV resident, Hudson is quite livable. There is a large gay/lesbian community, plenty of arts spaces, it is an Amtrak stop (so NYC is basically two hours away) and it is a gem box of historic architecture. There are several good to excellent restaurants and a strong community vibe. The neighboring towns of Catskill, Athens, Claverack and Saugerties have their attractions as well and the HRV is beautiful in any direction.

We have a cake!

"Small-town London. I baked an orange olive oil cake today. A bit trying at first when I realized I had miscalculated the ingredients with the litre measuring cup and there them out and started again once I looked more deeply into a drawer and found American measuring cups and spoons for the floor and sugar but after I had already tried to calculate the olive oil and orange juice again which I wasn’t going to toss for the second time. I know baking is a science but the artistic instinct in me was giving the batter an artful appraisal and decided to throw in a couple of small handfuls of flour sucks I think I had over measured the liquid component. Then I had the oven to face with its temp gauge and knobs new to me etc. Finally figured it out and took the cake out right when Suzanne was coming through the four from a day of appointments really hungry. It turned out to be the best one I have ever made and looked really nice next to the roses I bought this morning. A good omen for my life here I decided as the making of this cake was a marker in its way of my settling into a new setting for my life. Ask Suzanne Noble for a testimonial regarding the cake which was as close as I have come to making a perfect one. But I am fine with the imperfect ones too. That was finally the lesson today. Now off to give done pieces away in small-town London though Suzanne and I debated as we were having our second pieces of maybe I should wait till the next one and save this delicious one for ourselves. Lesson two: give it away."

Theoretically, he could re-enter the UK directly from Paris; there is not requirement for a minimum number of days outside the UK before returning for another day of a maximum of 6 months again. There's discretion in Immigration staff in questioning repeat/frequent U.S. visitors so maybe he's trying to avoid showing up at the UK too frequently and for stats that test the 6 month limit? Without an employer or demonstrable source of income, he could face a hard line of questions if he presented himself for too many 6 month visits too quick on the heels of one another.

My guess is that Paris and Santa Fe wouldn't be in the picture if he could easily stay put in London with his egg boxes.

This one has a private bathroom so I included that photo. And a private entrance. They are both - London and Paris - half of the rent I was paying in Hudson. So this is also a needed economical change in my life as well as a needed cultural and spiritual one.

I'm a writer on a pilgrimage. I need the theeahtah and opera and art to fill my soul, ask the folks at the National where I get press tickets....oh sorry no they blacklisted me, try the Almeida. Plus I have many friends here like the kids in Malin+Goetz and the baristas at the coffee shop next to my AirBnB who enjoy my olive oil cakes. And my Facebook community follow my every move.

He has been and sometimes still is condescending, rude and uppity. These negative traits were more pronounced in his glory days way back in the 1990s when he wouldn't talk to you if you weren't fabulous enough.

by Anonymousreply 112November 17, 2022 5:16 AM

To be fair, as a former tweaker and now 11 years sober, I can count on one hand the NYC fellows that got and stayed sober over a decade. It really is one of the “best”yet most anddictive and worst drugs wrapped into one. You’ll get a fabulous high out of it, but lose your entire life in the process. I was high every weekend and one day looked up and realized 15 years had passed in a blink.

Meth is insidious because it rewires the pleasure sensors in your brain, especially sexual and those “reward” and accomplishment neurons. Like I said previous, I smoked a lot of meth and after a few rounds of the dentist to fill and replace a few, I still have all my teeth. He must have been doing it daily and for awhile and got the really pure stuff to completely ruin his teeth. Back in the day, I thank God every day my old roommate was selling me diluted stuff for years before I realized. The stuff on the streets nowadays is much stronger.

If he was already a cunt, meth amplifies it. It also wildly distorts your entitlement, ego and narcissistic behaviors. Former meth addicts are some of the most entitled people you will ever meet, ESPECIALLY those that still dabble in it, or didn’t use a conventional sober program and got sober themselves. Absolutely the worst to work with or befriend.

If he was doing enough, some of these behavioral changes are permanent, I’ve met sober guys that haven’t come back from meth and even years later, pine for it and their life is absolutely miserable without it. Meth addiction mimics schizophrenia and several other mental diseases. If you did a lot, you never are really able to become happy again, and it’s why many suicide years after getting sober.

And let me remind those of you who wondered why he left Hudson when he was so coddled there by the local dipshits. He hinted at the fact that he was butthurt over being wronged by Hudson, and that eventually he would enlighten us all by writing one of his batshit little columns on Substack or Sesshie magazine or wherever he's currently humiliating himself with his crap writing. He's had idiotic patrons propping him up for years, whether it was the Telegraph Hill digs in San Francisco or the loft in Hudson, easy marks were bending over and standing on their fucking heads to fellate this clown.

Say what you will about me, but I was 22 when I met this asshole for the first time, and I was hot but young and out of my element at a big media party in Manhattan. I was dating a finance guy from VF who brought me and KS walked up to me approximately five minutes after I walked in and started tearing me down. I'll never forget it. He was all, "You don't belong here" and called me trash. I could fucking buy and sell his lame Pret-eating elderly ass today. I own my own coop on the UWS and have a cottage on Montauk while this bitch is roaming around staying at 200 square foot shacks on Air BNB, pretending to be press to get free tickets.

Agreed, R158 that there was a suddenness and abbreviation in the story of getting out of Hudson rather fast and taking up his "pilgrimage" - the gust of which is never explained with much detail and less consistency.

More than a case of realizing that nothing was going right, something seems to have turned badly in Hudson and hive a narrative of deprivation and discovery to detract from more drama and failings.

For reasons unrelated to el camino, he seems to vamosed in rather a hurry from Small Town Hudson. The explanations don't fit.

So I bet at least some of his FB friends send him money. I wonder if he messages them asking for it. The posts and photos on FB are his products for them. Going to London was the last possible way of generating product to justify asking for money. It can’t last long, next Santa Fe.

He said at one point on Facebook that there was a specific thing that infuriated him and made him want to leave Hudson, and that at some point in the future he would write about it on his tired little Substack newsletter. At the time, I assumed it was just that his landlord raised his rent, but now I'm not so sure -- I think it's something else. I'm a fan of Justin Vivian Bond who has a fabulously decorated house in Hudson (The House of Whimsy) and just had winning bids on Joan Didion's elephant end-tables in the big Stair Galleries auction. Sesshie has copped a pic or two with JVB during his time in Hudson, but I have always gotten the sense that JVB has his fucking number and knows what a sad sack grifter he is and keeps a respectable distance from his insane ass.

Stay tuned for his anti-Hudson rant that makes him into some big victim and the high profile Hudson residents singing like birds over what a jackass he is. Although some of them may be too classy to do that.

by Anonymousreply 165November 19, 2022 9:36 AM

Jesus fucking Christ:


I have learned to surrender where my recovery is concerned but recovering those lost black Ace & Tate glasses I loved so much was not about giving up. I have let go of so much in my life, as I wrote the other day, that losing them unexpectedly broke my heart in a way that might have been a delayed heartbreak for all my furniture and art etc. that I no longer have. Maybe that was wrapped up in how emotional it was making me feel. Plus, it was sort of tangible proof since those glasses were no longer tangible in my life that I am increasingly crossing over into addled-old-man territory.

But just as moving to London was about reconfiguring the narrative in my life and redefining an economic reason to economize re: rent etc. as a grand adventure and a pilgrimage, I decided that losing those glasses was just the beginning of a narrative and not the end of one. It could be the centerpiece in a chapter of my next book, which will have chapter headings posed as questions. This chapter could be titled: "Why Do We Lose the Things We Love?"

I told just that, in fact, to the CEO and Founder of Ace & Tate after I did my research and found out who the company's founder and CEO actually is. I also found out the name of the head of marketing and branding. There is a site that helps you figure out the email formations and addresses for companies based on percentages. I also sent one to the general press office on the company's website. It took me a few tries to get my email through to the marketing and branding head. But the one to the CEO and founder went through on the first try. The message in the email was the same to all of them. It was a long narrative and included the Matilda and Cinderella post I put up here on Facebook that took place in their store in 7 Dials.

In about an hour I heard back from the CEO/Founder who told me he was having his assistant look into finding me a pair of the company's Rick frames in black although they had been discontinued a while ago. I was rather shocked by the alacrity of his response and told him that even if they didn't find them somewhere I was still impressed with his kind impulse to offer to find them and I would pay that kindness forward no matter the outcome.

There was an outcome today. His assistant let me know that she had finally been able to find a pair of the black ones and they wanted to offer them to me for free. I only had to pay for the lenses. I knew it was possible but I truly didn't think it was probable. I even teared up when I got her email, and wrote her and her boss back to thank them and to let them know yet again that I would pay their kindness forward.

Surrender to a higher power at work in your life but never give up the ground game. Keep writing the narrative as you live it. Believe in happy endings, and then realize that even happy endings aren't the end.

I think he may have run out on a dental bill back in Hudson because he had to have not one but two rotted molars extracted before he skipped town. He had put one off because he couldn't afford it, only to have to return a few weeks later in dire distress. This saga lasted a week or two, with fraus offering to start a go fund me or send $$ directly.

He has a lot of recognizable friends on his FB list and every so often a remark will pop up from Joyce Maynard or Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill with an encouraging word or two but by and large the daily commentary looks like R174, with hordes of what sound like older fraus cooing about how good his food looks, or how brave and inspirational he is. Without all those free tickets, he'd be SUNK.

Maybe he is running for drug dealers and unpaid rough trade. Hudson is not a nice town despite what some of you might think. Scratch a mid-century overprice object, and you discover an upstate shithole. And that far North, its on the wrong side of the river. After Rhinebeck, one must cross to the Catskills and look for some place that never went full white trash, or like Kingston, black ghetto. Kingston has a much better vibe nowadays than Hudson.

"I left my loft in a state of dirty disarray about which i am deeply ashamed although the shame goes deeper and the disarray that could be described in such a way is just manifested by it."

The loft was a pigsty when he absconded, yet made it all about himself as well, turning this classless act into an opportunity for ambient, senseless, angsty purple prose. Yet he "pays it forward" not by leaving his apartment in a decent state, as any decent human being would do, but but by handing out catshit-oil cakes to strangers in small-town London.

I am so glad someone finally brought up Joyce Maynard . When Sesshie left his apartment filthy she couldn't wait to jump in and enable him and tell him not to feel guilty about that and when he was trying to get rid of the cats she was cheering him on. She adopted two little children from Africa a few years ago, lost interest, and rehomed them to some couple in Ohio or some such place. Like Finn and Maddie but they were people! Joyce and Seshhie are like soul sisters.

I understand that this strangely fascinating has-been is one of those "own worst enemy" types, but it does seem strange that he apparently keeps losing jobs (like the one at Vanity Fair).

It can't be because of his personality, as jobs like those are often filled by objectionable people. Is it because he didn't write interesting interviews? It does take some skill, after all.

But to go from Vanity Fair (which, at least in the old days, was known for overpaying its writers) to a hut with a bathtub next to the bed and a kitchen outside is quite some travel.

He's used up his comeback possibilities. Look at this (more than a little outdated) trail of jobs from Wiki...

[quote]Sessums has served as executive editor of Interview and as a contributing editor of Vanity Fair, Allure, and Parade. His work has also appeared in Travel+Leisure, Elle, Out, Marie Claire, Playboy, Thedailybeast.com and Towleroad.com. He was the founding Editor-in-Chief of FourTwoNine magazine and the Editor at Large of the Curran Theatre in San Francisco [fired.] Currently, he is the Editor in Chief of sessumsMagazine.com [the titular umbrella project for his only production now, a substack blog] which he founded in October 2017 as well as Editor at Large at Grazia USA [fired].

He's not the executive editor or contributing editor or editor or even contributor to anything but his own irregular ramblings and reposts of articles from happier days I'm his substack -- he must have enough new subscribers to keep the idea marginally afloat and a trickle of income coming in before people ditch.

Why his "reporting" in Facebook and (slightly expanded, he promised) in Substack are worth press tickets is a mystery. We learn far more about the shopgirls at Malin+Goetz and Pret a Manger than about any performances -- other than being moved to tears, of course.

What's the question, R248? He updated his Facebook profile (and other social media, I assume) to show that he lives no longer in Hudson, New York but in London. Which is true enough, and truer than many of the things he claims.

A Facebook profile isn't a statement of nationality or citizenship, isn't an indication of his place of legal residency. A U.S. citizen may stay 6 months in the UK and then would have to leave; but the span of time before he may enter the country again is not explicitly stated. An immigration and border control agent would have leeway to question purposes and financial self-sufficiency and non-UK-employment status and other details of someone who spent up to 6 months in the UK then returned soon enough thereafter to raise questions, but it's not illegal so long as the visitor doesn't violate other laws and leaves within 6 months.

In any case where is his home if he doesn't live in the U.S. any longer? The mailing address on a U.S. bank account? His mailing address on record with the IRS? The U.S. government doesn't have good statistics on where its citizens live other than a broad estimate that there are approximately 8 million expats living outside the U.S. If he's not registered as some sort of temporary resident his only status in the UK is by way of a tourist visa agreement with the U.S., the six-month and then leave rule -- vague in the case of the U.K. on when you can return. Without a legally defined place of residence, what else does he have but his Facebook 'Lives in...' status?

Tina Brown was more indulgent, but even she reached the end of her rope with his looney tunes ass. As for the nutjobs gassing him up in the Facebook comments, I defy you to click on even one of their profiles and read their timelines. The frau who said he looks like a GQ model has the most repulsive collection of recipes I've ever seen in my life, and I have honest to god seen some shit. I mean, frozen Jimmy Dean sausage scattered haphazardly in a lasagna pan, topped with eggs (not beaten, just cracked and left to nestle between the barnyard filth that is JD sausage), then topped with grated cheese processed food product with frozen Pillsbury Crescent Rolls scattered atop the mess and baked. You cannot make this shit up. They think he looks like a GQ model because they eat canned biscuits and USDA Grade D pig innards.

I had one in my backpack so I let the harried woman asking for it have it to charge her phone a bit. "Thank you, you've saved my day," she said to me. "You've saved mine," I told her, "by allowing me to be kind to someone to start it off." [/italic]

Small-town London. Walking home from buying my Friday morning white roses and juices and some bits at the Marks & Spencer food hall on Kilburn High Street I needed to bake my Friday morning cake, I had to stop and continue to take it all in: I have really done this and this is now the block and street where I live for most of the year. My home base. This street. This. London. For so many years a baseness was my home so having a home base - and even the way it has been manifested, especially the way it has with surrender and letting go but also with a determination that has nothing to do with being willful - is a blessing that I didn’t know was waiting for me. Now to understand its patience.

Another oil cake is to be baked to pay the kindness forward. No doubt to be doled out to the poor unfortunates that then have to pose eating the slices for his Facebook/Instagram.

What kills me about the Pret boxes are that they are £7 each. If he just bought some tupperware from a pound store and a box of eggs and some tuna or salmon he could make a weeks worth of Pret boxes for about £10. Stupid fool.

Small town London. I approached a group of bald men wearing hoodies and offered them slices of my orange olive oil cake "Yew fackin cunnnnnt" they said and beat me over the head with a whiffle ball bat. It's amazing how everything connects, particularly my skull and the whiffle ball bat. I went home and Suzanne almost choked on her Bacon Breakfast Bun when she saw all the blood. "I don't feel well," I confessed, paying it forward. Actually more sort of a "pitching it forward" as I went down like a sack of broken bricks. As I hit the floor I thought about a lot of things: cat dander, the fact that my parents are dead, my missing eyeglasses and how glad I was that I hadn't actually been wearing them. Mostly, though, I thought about Pan, my landlady's other border, who has VPL for miles and reeks of sweaty nipples. Onward.

She told me he is an actor and I began to follow him over at Instagram. I watched this video the other day at his Instagram feed and realized that good god he’s good. Yeah, he’s good looking in that wondrously wan way of some young actors - Chalamet possesses that kind of sexiness - but I was gobsmacked by his talent here. Ned gave me permission to share this here on Facebook. Click on the link below to watch it."

Hey, it's not so sad to economize on prepared food. Food is really expensive and restaurant food more so. I swing by a grocery store in a wealthy neighborhood by my work sometimes to see what prepared meals and salads are 50% off. Some of the prepared salads have ingredients its not easy to buy in small quantities or to keep fresh at home. Also its a good way to control the portion of meat - because usually its a small but satisfying amount in these prepared dishes.

by Anonymousreply 330November 30, 2022 2:45 PM

Well done, R330. Indeed there's no shame in economizing on prepared foods or anything else for that matter.

The shame here is that Kevin Sessums was for years that smirking superior ugly bald cunt giving off a grand mal grimace and a rolled eye of disapproval of anyone whose clothes or appearance or speech wasn't NOKD/NOCD (not our kind, dear; not our class, dear.) How he would have sniffed and tried to belittle a sad looking gay pensioner having a gaze through the Expiring Soon section. He would have done his very best to belittle.

All of the the fallen Sessums' "language of recovery," his talk of of falls and life lessons, of "paying it forward," of pilgrimages and humility rings hollow as fuck, and he's now not a sage bargain hunter but a creepy old lecher dripping of insincerity and ugly sour rot.

Sesshie is like a slow moving car accident, you simply can’t look away.

I too dabbled with meth for awhile and met a LOT of interesting creatures and enough colorful characters to fill several tomes. His dramatic fall from grace is practically Shakespearean. Like Trump, he really doesn’t see his part or the ongoing process of reacting to unwanted outcomes- that is keeping him entombed in egotistical and distasteful behavior. He only loves himself through engaging in the appreciation of others admiration, but is too insecure or lacking enough confidence to truly love himself, admit or amend, and follow true principles or humility like others.

A true measure of character is not what you say or keep declaring or defending, often it’s what you’re deliberately NOT saying. This is why Trump won’t ever get elected again.. I’m pretty sure he’s still dabbling with meth if he cannot sit through several visits needed to his teeth fixed, or cannot commit to a 9-5 job.

Two of the BIGGEST fears gay men have are what he’s dealing with right now- financial instability and growing old alone- and seeing him not only maneuver through this, but proudly broadcast it is better than several tv shows I’m following. He’s a haphazard, unwieldy gay SIM character mishapping through life and it’s our guilty pleasure to watch.

by Anonymousreply 361December 1, 2022 12:54 PM

R361, I went to Tufts Dental School and had excellent care, they mapped out a budget for me prioritizing on what was more urgent, had several fillings refilled, a two new crowns, a bridge and oral surgery and paid about a third of what I would’ve at a regular dentist.

It took about a year, because I didn’t want to finance it, I never more than $100 a visit, the bridge took 6 weeks and I was able to save up and pay for it when it came in. If teeth are too far gone, or cracked below the gum line they will rot anyways, cannot be saved and need to be pulled. If he’s HIV+, I’m pretty sure there are other ways around paying in full.

He brought that blonde twink to the movies tonight. Must be thinking of making a move there now that the landlady has gone on her travels. Poor Ned.

"Small-town London. The piece of cake I had at home before I gave it all away. I took half with me to Candace’s last night for dessert first stopping off at Theatre Cafe to give pieces to Cameron and Meghan but I couldn’t surprise them since Cameron had already seen the cake on Instagram and asked me if I had brought them some. (The latex glove is the one Cam gave me to retrieve the cake and cut it) The old eccentric Cake Man in Hudson has morphed into his London version. I gave a quarter of it to Mary Beth, Suzanne’s housecleaner, who comes on Friday’s. And the other quarter was all Pan’s. He is the other tenant who loves my cakes. When I got up this morning all that was left of that perfectly cooked cake yesterday was the perfectly cleaned plate it had sat on. The feeling of happiness I felt at the nothingness that was left was everything. And it dawned on me that is sort of the essence of this chapter of my life I am now living. Baking all those cakes back in Hudson and giving them all away was the beginning of all this. I realized that for the first time today. Onward."

More absurd than any parodic attempt on these pages. Good god -- does this man have no self-awareness whatsoever?

Anyone else think he's using at night?

Candace Allen lives in a very nice part of London and used to be married to Sir Simon Rattle so $$$. Sesshie knows a mark when he sees one.

That greasy slab of eggs with unseasoned chopped tomatoes on top was not a frittata. Not even close. And when he tried to pivot and call it a Spanish omelet? I'm sorry Mr. Mothball Stank Clothes, I know tortilla patatas and this is not that. And when commenters on Facebook were like, "I really like you Kevin but that is absolutely not a frittata" he was all, "Okay honey lol." You can't make this shit up. He is unhinged and I worry that Pan is going to be found whimpering beneath a pile of oily cat-hair mothball elderly creep cakes. Paris is going to eat him the fuck up though and I'm here for that.

His new thrift-store coat makes him look like a chunky Nosferatu.
