Aging hunks lose battle of the bulge
THEY were once the toast of Tinseltown.
Aging Hunks top-billed several skin flicks in their prime.
Curiously, they suddenly disappeared from the scene.
A mole spotted Aging Hunk 1 on a busy side street one night. AH1 was twice his former size and looked like a DOM. Make that a shabby, very dirty old man. To think, AH1 was quite a heartbreaker and made not a few girls cry in his heyday.
AH2 was seen in a suburban mall. He was chubby and balding and now looks like the predators who used to prey on him.
How the tides have turned.
Speaking of over-the-hill hunks.

Troubled Celeb’s addiction to alcohol is getting worse.
Pals complain that TC often goes on drunken binges these days. Seems TC is still carrying a torch for an ex that got away—Saccharine Lass.
Inebriated TC would frequently spew out lovelorn stories about the good old days with SL.

Well, TC also bounced back with Nubile Novice, but it seems the attraction is merely physical. But wait, didn’t TC cheat on SL with NN?
