A-List: New York star Austin Armacost strips off for Attitude

2015-03-03
Star of TLC's cult hit The A List: New York, Austin Armacost made a name for himself for his frequent spats with cast mates. So it was no surprise that when Attitude caught up with the reality TV personality and his British husband Jake for a nude photo shoot at London's Soho Sanctum hotel, he was in his usual outspoken form. Austin We asked Armacost about the rumours he might enter the UK Celebrity Big Brother house some time in the future, and while he couldn't confirm if he'd been in contact with producers, he did make one promise: "If I were to go into the Celebrity Big Brother house I know I would be the most entertaining. And if I know another housemate is being shady, sneaky, or conniving, they will be confronted about it." What about Celebrity Big Brother's most recent gay US import, Perez Hilton? What did Armacost make of him? "Please excuse me while I go and hurl my f*cking guts up. What an absolute disgrace to America, the LGBT community, and to himself as a father. A complete embarrassment. He is an absolute knob, which is ironic as he used to be famous for drawing knobs on celebrities' foreheads," he said. "I can't believe no-one lost their temper and walloped him. He needed it ten years ago when he was relevant, and needs it now when he is grasping on to a fading career, and will need it even more when his child sees his behaviour on the show." Tell us what you really think, Austin! And while he may have stripped off for Attitude in support of HIV prevention, he does have his limits when it comes to baring all. "I was actually offered to do the cover of Playgirl, but they wanted a full erection in the photoshoot, so I declined."
