As it turns out, Kyle Richards and I have a past lover in common. Yes, as they say six degrees of separation. Kyle Richards was engaged to Michael Tuck who was a anchor on the local news.
What is really funny, is that back in the late 70’s early 80’s he was a patient/client of a clinic my father had in Tijuana Mexico that offered “Gerovital” injections, and god only knows what else. I was a child then, but I will never forget going with my mother to the bank to make the deposit of checks, and seeing a check from Michael Tuck, and thinking, wow, he is a celebrity.
Gerovital H3 (or procaine hydrochloride and products known as GH3 and other variants which may or may not be identical to Gerovital H3) is a controversial preparation developed during the 1950s and promoted by its advocates as an effective anti-aging treatment. During Gerovital’s “jet-set” heyday, Gerovital treatments were reportedly administered to John F. Kennedy, Marlene Dietrich, Kirk Douglas and Salvador Dalí. In the United States, the FDA bans Gerovital H3 from interstate commerce as an unapproved drug and, since 1982, has prohibited its importation.
Gerovital is promoted with false claims of its curative abilities for a wide range of human ailments; research has found no evidence that it has any health benefit or “antiaging” properties.
I met Michael Tuck the night I brought my best friend to a Christmas Party, where she met her now husband. Michael and I were attracted to each other from the get go, but a lot of it for me was that I remembered his celebrity status when I was a child. This was way before the “Kardashians” kind of celebrity, or what we know or think of today. By watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I found out that one of the main wives Kyle Richards had been engaged to him decades before.
This is one of those many, many times you realize that six degrees of separation is real!! It is a small world, after all!
