Nicholas Gruber: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

The Steeple Times asks model and personality Nicholas Gruber: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

 

The Steeple Times shares “wit and wisdom.” What’s your guiding force?

I try to learn something from everyone I meet.

 

“Don’t get even, get medieval” is, in our humble opinion, a great motto. What’s yours?

Life is short so enjoy a part of every day, even the shitty ones.

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2012?

Picking on anyone less fortunate than you. That’s why the Republicans lost the election in the US.

 

Tony Blair misses being Prime Minister. What do you miss most in your life?

My grandmother, Judy Bolduc. She was the first lesbian in California to adopt a child, my dad.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

Honey, pick up a paper: I did that already for some freedom.

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank.” What’s your view on the banking crisis?

Greed is never good in any way, shape or form.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

“Thank you so much.” It seems insincere whereas just “thank you” seems genuine.

 

In the UK, some people consider charity to “begin at home.” What’s your view and what causes do you personally support?

Toys for Tots because I know first hand what it feels like to be a kid with nothing under the tree.

 

The judge in “Law Abiding Citizen” states: “I can pretty do whatever I want” before being blown up whilst answering her mobile phone. What’s your view on the appropriate use of such devices?

It is only appropriate to blow up terrorists.

 

If you could fill a carriage on The Orient Express, who would be your fellow passengers?

My new boyfriend, John Luciano, and my former one, Calvin Klein. Now, that would be one hell of a ride.

 

Nicholas Gruber

If you were unfortunate enough to end up on death row, what would be your last meal and where would you eat it?

Pasta from Bar Pitti.  Two helpings. Plus a slice of German chocolate cake.

 

What time is it acceptable to consume the first drink of the day?

I’m sober so for me that would be noon. Joking. I don’t drink but I also don’t judge.

 

A Negroni, a martini or a cup of tea?

None of the above. I will take a coconut water please.

 

Whose parties do you enjoy the most and why?

Calvin Klein.  He might be three times my age but he can party like a rock star.

 

Who is the most positive person you know?

A tie between Calvin and John. They both believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself.

 

What’s your most guilty pleasure?

Having a mob related boyfriend who allows me to have girlfriends.

 

If a tattoo were to sum you up, what would it be of?

A glass that was half full because that’s how I roll.

 

If you were a car, what marque would you be?

A smiley face.

 

Cilla Black presented “Surprise, Surprise.” Tell us the most surprising thing about you.

I’m straight but bang guys.

Nothing. It’s all about no clutter.

  1. Great to see Nicholas being so positive. He’s had a rough time – much of it of his own making – but it looks like he’s come through the worst and is building a new life. Let’s celebrate that instead of making stupid remarks like that left by Tom McLoughlin. Well done Nicholas.

  2. I love the variety of people you’ve interviewed for the mantelpiece questions. Keep them coming.
    Well done to Nicholas Gruber for some very honest answers.

  3. Tom was in court 3 weeks ago and due back early Jan.
    Same old stuff deception and fraud. In Jan he is due to be sent to crown court – looks like Tom’s third stretch, wonder how long he will get this time, it’s his 3rd strike!

  4. Jailhouse Rock is a song written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller and became a hit for Elvis Presley.
    The song was released on September 24 1957. Appears still relevant these days.
