PBS gets naked

Remember when PBS used to stand for Pretty Boring Stuff?
That moniker was shed, along with major articles of clothing, by 28-year-old Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo, star of “Great Performances: Vittorio: Dreams of Rome” airing in August.
Vittorio had been sitting at the piano near the Ritz-Carlton bank of elevators pounding out some tunes that afternoon. Perhaps he was also pounding down something stronger than sparkling water, but we’re not sure. Anyway, he performed in front of TV critics gathered here for the penultimate night of a very long press tour that has taken up the better part of July.
After the performance, he went back to jamming on the ivories with a bunch of fans, including some young PBS publicists who handed him at least one mint-laced beverage.
After posing for pictures and engaging in some serious flirting, he apparently decided it was time to cool off.
So he took a dip in the Olympic size pool. And was it his fault he didn’t bring his swim suit?
He tossed clothed women into the pool and reportedly kept yelling that he was Italian. Apparently that explains the no-shame late night dip. Eventually, hotel security.
All I’m saying is that after watching the cavorting in the pool over the past few weeks, there isn’t enough chlorine in the world to get me into that water.

    I’m trying to get a picture posted…although he still had his pants on at that point. LOL
