Treated myself to a Thai massage today that felt sooo good and afterwards, people kept stopping me on the street to say, ‘Oh my God, you’re glowing.’

OMG- He has got an awesome body. He is fit and beefy instead of skinny muscles like so many HW guys. He looks like a real man. Gerard Butler, takes notes from this guy.

Now THAT—-Sounds great!

Joe-Manganiello’s shifting scenes …stripping down to nada ..way hot!

Even Mat Bomer looked like he had a little crush on Joe from the stills we saw from White Collar…who can blame him!

I think it was Joe who had the crush on Matt like the rest of us. LOL,they are all that way.
