Louis Aguirre, co-anchor of the popular entertainment show Deco Drive, is posting Facebook photos of his travels in Berlin and Prague. Meanwhile, someone has posted five photos – purporting to be Aguirre – including two shots of a man’s genitals. The sender, identified as "a rodriguez,” claims “Luis (sic) himself” ” sent the photos via Grindr, a smartphone app for gay men seeking quick hookups.
The emailer forwarded the photos to Aguirre’s boss, Alice Jacobs, as well as to gossip blogger Perez Hilton, The National Enquirer and People magazine. “Why he sends his face pic out is beyond me with his television notoriety,“ the email says.
Jacobs did not return calls. Aguirre did not respond to a Facebook message requesting comment.
Aguirre, 44, an Emmy-winning news reporter, is a former soap opera actor who has done stints on Sex and the City and Burn Notice. From WSVN’s website: “In 2005 People en Español magazine named Louis one of 25 most sexy bachelors.” He is also the station’s American Idol insider.
