In WWD's Memo Pad today, we found out for sure where old-news closeted homo/socialtard Fabian came from, which had been a source of rampant speculation for people with waaaaay too much time on their hands:
In the past, Basabe has said his father is a telephone mogul from Ecuador. The reality is, his father (also named Fabian) is a Bal Harbour, Fla., hotel owner with two failed restaurants who's been in and out of court in Florida for his apparent inability to pay bills on time . . . In 2001, Basabe Sr. filed for bankruptcy, which his son later said was part of the family's "business strategy." The business strategy must have been tough to implement; Basabe Sr. was still facing new lawsuits in 2004.Hey there, Socialite Rankles: you can stop knocking yourselves out flipping through the Ecuadorian Social Book. But please, don't stop making bigoted cracks about how "you need to earn at least $20 an hour" to be registered in it — that kind of thing is why we looove you.
