Perez Hilton (Mario Armando Lavandeira, Jr.)
Career: Perez started his celebrity gossip blog, PerezHilton.com, in 2005 and quickly earned a reputation for writing no-holds-barred stories about the stars. He is open in his support of some celebs, like Lady Gaga and Paris Hilton, but is consistently negative towards others, like Taylor Momsen. He is quick to speak out about celebs who have acted in a discriminatory way and has “outed” gay celebrities including former ‘N Sync band member Lance Bass. In 2007 he debuted his own reality show, What Perez Sez.
Relationships: He is openly gay and and, whenever he’s asked, says he doesn’t have a boyfriend.
FYI: In 2004 Perez appeared on the reality show Flab to Fab. In three months he lost 45lbs, and went from a 41” waist to a 28” waist.
