Barbara Bush dirty dancing with Fabian Basabe.

This article from the Miami New Times is gossipy and funny. The writer is pretty skeptical and Basabe has some priceless lines. It Isn't Easy Being Fabulous 2004-12-16:

Papa Bush, Basabe says, was very understanding. "There was no flak. If anything, they were more concerned for me." Papa Basabe, however, was beside himself.

"My parents were furious," he sighs, cringing at the memory. "They made me leave New York."

Where did you hide out?


"I had all these John Kerry people e-mailing me, asking, 'Can't you take her out dancing again?'"

Don't hate Fabian Basabe because he's beautiful. "I don't work, and a lot of people just don't understand that," the 26-year-old Basabe says, sounding genuinely hurt by the less-than-sympathetic response his poor-little-rich-boy persona often inspires. Pausing for a sip of his margarita, he continues: "People focus mainly on the glamour and think that if you're on television and in the public eye, you have a perfect life." Au contraire, Basabe warns. "Most of the time it's great, but it comes with a lot of responsibility."
