Lurid Stories of Famous Game Show Hosts

Posted By on Thu, Aug 11, 2011 at 5:00 PM

I suspect that none of the stories on the new-ish Tumblr site Chuck Woolery Took Me From Behind are factual, and they're a little disconcerting to read, but gosh, I applaud the ingenuity of the bold soul who conceptualized this brilliant site.

My agent sent me on a general meeting with the casting department at the CBS-Radford Studio. This is in 1991, I think. When I got there, the receptionist told me to wait in the lobby and gave me a water. I was just leafing through one of the trade magazines when all of a sudden this kid who introduced himself as Ron and couldn’t have been older than 17 approached me and asked me to follow him. I went in to a big conference room with a bunch of executive types who all just nodded and smiled politely but didn’t get up or say anything, then followed Ron through another door into a pretty dark office. He told me it was the Studio Commissary, then left me alone. About 5 minutes later, the door opened, and in walks Chuck Woolery, who I recognized from watching The Love Connection. He looked very put together. After sizing me up for a moment, but without saying a word, Chuck handed me a single autographed headshot (except the weird thing is he’d autographed my own headshot), then brusquely took me from behind.
