Lorenzo Lamas, from sex symbol to ruined man

There was a time when Lorenzo Lamas was one of the biggest Latino sex symbols on Earth. Unfortunately for him, that was a long, long time ago. The famous Lance Cumson of Falcon Crest is now a ruined man of 56 years who has a mere $500 in his bank account, having filed for bankruptcy for the second time in his life. SEE ALSO:  Where are they now? Latino celebrities whose stars have faded This is just one of the revelations that come to light in his just published autobiography, for sale at Amazon.com. The synopsis of the book reads: “In Renegade at Heart, the Emmy– and Golden Globe–nominated actor pulls back the curtain to share his startling and explosive story. The money and notoriety, the fights and falling outs, his years of battling abandonment and attachment issues after his parents’ divorce, his epic romances and tabloid-making marriages to his four ex-wives.” At 56, Lamas believes it’s time to reveal the “unvarnished” truth about his life. And that truth is none other than a traumatized childhood and adult life full of excesses with drugs, cars and women. The actor also delves deep into his relationship with his famous father, Fernando Lamas, a key figure in his life. According to the book, “his penetrating words of wisdom guided Lorenzo through turbulent times and to a sense of renewal and new beginnings.” However, not even his father was able to avoid the difficult moments that Lorenzo has been through. In fact, his powerful influence has been often a difficult burden to overcome for the actor, who defines himself in the book as an overweight and aimless child who found it hard to live up to the expectations of his famous father, whose exploits made him the inspiration for the “most interesting man in the world.” But Lorenzo feels proud “to have surprised everyone, shaping up and ultimately winning countless black belts in tae kwon do and karate” and “despite his father’s early discouragement, he pursued acting, starring in Falcon Crest and Renegade.” Sex, drugs and excesses Unfortunately, his television success also brought Lamas serious drugs problems and difficulties in maintaining a stable relationship. The actor has been married four times and has six children. Now he can´t pay the full $ 322,000 needed to maintain them and clear his debts owed to his former wives. One of the juicier anecdotes in the book reveals that, after meeting two twin sisters on the set of Grease in 1978, his first film role at age 20, he had a threesome with them. Plus, he reveals that one day he arrived so drunk to the set of Falcon Crest that he asked one of the makeup artists to spray him with a whole bottle of deodorant. His condition was not lost on Jane Wyman, the actress who played Angela Channing and in real life was a close friend of Lorenzo’s stepmother, actress Esther Williams. She took Lorenzo aside and made him promise to never work in such state again.

According to him, “millions of fans have been waiting for the unvarnished truth and his side of his remarkable journey and fully fleshed rumination of the highs and lows of an extraordinary life and survival of an extraordinary man and actor.” As the book has hit the shelves just one month before Lamas returns to TV as a participant in Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice, all we can say is… Good luck, Lorenzo!The post Lorenzo Lamas, from sex symbol to ruined man appeared first on Voxxi.
