Michael-Brandon-Gloss-MagMichael Brandon has given an interview to Gloss Magazine about his recent, harrowing struggle with drug addiction. His court-issued ankle monitoring bracelet has since been removed, but he he talked about being confined to his apartment. “It’s not as bad as a state prison of course — my 900 square foot apartment is a beautiful prison, but it’s a prison nonetheless. I’m confined and constantly monitored and I live with the reality that people can barge into my apartment at any time, for any reason and demand that I pee in a cup.” He notes that he has retired his onscreen persona but is considering producing or directing. The Gloss interviewer asks if he’s learned his lesson. “I do. I mean, I know I don’t want to be that person anymore,” Mr. Brandon says. “I have learned that I have an allergic reaction to drugs — I break out in handcuffs and go to jail.” We wish him the best in his recovery.

    He has a rough road ahead of him, and we wish Michael all the best in his sobriety. It is probably just as well that he will no longer perform.

    That line about having lines of cocaine out on the set was interesting, although he filmed for many studios.

    Good luck to him.

    Yes indeed, best wishes Michael. He hosted an event called “Pornstar” here in SF, a few weeks back, he was friendly and cordial to those who attended.

    From the other side of the atlantic I too wish him all the very best for now and the future.

    I’m glad he’s better. But it’s disappointing that he continues to blame others for his addiction. “I got on drugs because my parents didn’t accept my gay lifestyle.” or “I stopped going to meetings because everyone was gossiping about me.” This sounds like Whitney’s interview on Oprah and how she put her drug usage all on Bobby. I’m not trying to demean Michael Brandon or belittle his progress. I just don’t respect him because he has hurt a lot of people in his life. And instead of taking responsibility for his actions, he makes the world his scapegoat.

    Clearly, Michael Brandon is pumping the few fans he has left to say nice things about him in exchange for sex or whatever! He is playing the role of victim to the hilt and it is hideous! Only the very last comment has any reality to it! Michael Brandon is unworthy of respect! He is a liar, a cheat and a fraud! It does not matter how nice he has ever been to fans, he has whored himself and others and for gain and the sole satisfaction of getting high on illegal substances. He was seen using ilegal substances as far back as 2004 and drinking / poppers as far back as 1999 and thinks it is not his fault! Michael has robbed, lied and cheated his way to the top or the gay porn totem pole only to burn the people below him! He has squashed and profoundly hurt many people! Under the vise of being clean and sober he received a great deal of assistance from charity only to burn those charities and all the peons involved! I cringe to think of the young impressionable gay men who watched Michael and as a result are no longer living! Michael, the conceited prick that he is has the nerve to complain about a “beautiful 900 sq. foot prison! ” Think of those boys who are now in 7×2 foot coffins you vain, arrogant snot! Wow! Many people would like to see Michael in a cheap pine box coffin and off the face of the planet! In this interview, he shows no remorse, no accountability, no desire to practice the 12-steps or recovery and absolutely no spirit or humility! How dare he even suggest that he will curse the beautiful planet earth with his directing or producing! Michael needs to quit corrupting our lives and embarrassing gay people everywhere! Disgusting and horrid excuse for a human existence! And, how dare he complain about being confined; he should be in a homeless shelter or better a prison where men beat him up all the time so he can get a taste of the suffering which he has caused others!

    Wow, how about coming clean with why you’re on this tirade against the guy, huh? It was a stupid one pager article in a magazine! I’m not trying to defend what ever Michael did to you, but maybe there is more to this story you aren’t hearing?

  8. Roz L on November 16, 2009 6:02 pm

    There’s a lot more! I have a family member who Michael Brandon’s hypocracy lured him on drugs and that person is now dead as a result! He was a young gay man who was so impressed with Michael Brandon, met him, saw him on Anti-Drug posters. He worked on Michael’s sets, was devastated by seeing Michael do drugs while around the corner Michael was on these anti-drug posters and then the two had sex and partied until one died. Michael hurts without remorse, blames it on his ex-wife, parents, guys on the set, etc! He also hurts immensly and ruins lives and kills! I hope his mother never lets him in again! She knows about the lost lives and great human suffering her son is responsible for! And what is hypocritical is the Xmas of 2003 Michael had his entire So. Cal family up to SFO for a big celebration that his porn and porstitution money paid for. Michael is lying about his relationship with his family! Michael Brandon only got about 1/2 of 1% of the punishment he deserves! Many people want justice and still more want revenge against Michael Brandon! He is a corrupt individual and the thought of him contributing to a community, going on the road, or being involved with family makes me sick! He has lied to us time and again so do not believe him now! HE IS DANGEROUS and I wish he would get the slow and painful death that he deserves! I would not wish Michael Brandon on my worst enemy! Oh yeah, Michael Brandon IS my worst enemy! I hope he kills himself so he does not have to put up with himself anymore! I know karma will bite his butt soon, and also, all the rest of us have to do is wait; Michael will relapse again and we will see even more of his true colours! And what about that narcissistic photo? Wow! Maybe if he showed one drop of humility or an ounce of Recovery I might feel better! Another funny thing is Michael said he only ever did Meth. Now he is at least admitting to cocaine as well. Michael also dealed drugs the entire time he claimed to be sober. He worked as a hustler and would inject sex-clients with drug concoctions so they would go to sleep and afterwards Michael would say that he had sex with them and the victims who could not remember would give Michael $400-800 and Michael partied it away! Michael Brandon should stand trial for murder – PERIOD!

    Roz L (aka Roz Lipschits or Roz Lipschitz) has been trolling various gay porn sites for the past year bashing Michael Brandon to whoever will listen. This person even took part in vandalizing Michael’s Wikipedia page and was banned for his abuse of the site. Just take what he has to say with a grain of salt.

  10. Roz L on November 16, 2009 9:07 pm

    What Rabbit has to say is all news to me. I am a she btw… Why are people protecting the likes of Michael Brandon who purposefully burns and hurts so many? There are many sites with many names of individuals giving testimony about Michael Brandon’s abuse towards them. No grain of salt needed. Anyone would be an idiot to associate with someone responsible for so much terror and suffering like Michael Brandon – a MONSTER from hell!

  11. Bram on November 16, 2009 9:37 pm

    The photo Michael Brandon chose for his victimy article is indeed narcissistic as is the entire interview! Brandon is trying to hold on to some fake & superficial life he had 8-12 years ago. He is a pathological liar & is planning his next attack against whatever victims are out there. It is worth noting that one-liners he used the last time he lied saying he was in recovery should be discounted, i.e.: “I break-out in handcuffs & go to jail” or “Revcovery is cool!” He needs to keep recovery anonymous as it is supposed to be! But, he’s desperate to stay in the public eye.

  12. rabbit on the moon on November 16, 2009 9:58 pm

    I recognize your similar essay long rants from different sites. Deny it all you want, but I’m not stupid. Also, I am in no way protecting Michael. I’m simply alerting people to the fact that you’re a nutjob who has nothing better to do than to cause trouble on the internet. Let it go already. If you hate Michael, then fine. But how is it benefiting you to spend a year of your life verbally attacking someone who could care less about you? You obviously have some screws loose and I truly believe you need professional help.

  13. Roz L on November 17, 2009 12:59 am

    Usually people that have witnessed a slow, painful, heartless act of murder benefit from some sort of therapy. My situation (whatever it is) is compliments of Michael Brandon. I also recall (above) being asked to elaborate! Get over it! I tell the truth!

  14. Carol Brunette on November 17, 2009 5:43 am

    JC Clean up on Aisle 1, This is clearly an Agenda driven personal attack by a seriously unhinged individual, no doubt a Stalker!

  15. JC Adams on November 17, 2009 6:56 am

    We’ve done some banning and deleted a few posts. Thanks, guys.

    Michael Brandon has NEVER EVER been clean nor sober. He lied for years and years in the past. He also stole from and used the images of anti-drug charities for his perrsonal gain, set bad examples left and right and caused many to be murdered by his drug use. Now he is using the same line which he has been using 11 and 1/2 years ago “I am in recovery working on me!” Bull shit Michael! You are full of shit and lying just like you did form 1998 to your 2005 public relapse! So many saw you high for over 3 years (2005-2008) and others which were close to you from 1998 onwards saw you high the entire time! Quit lying and quit bragging about 14 stupid months which are debatable! All you want is praise for things you have not done and do not deserve!

  17. Carol Brunnette on December 11, 2009 5:28 pm

    He’s BACK!
