“Oh please! Taylor is totally out for revengiosity,” said “The A-List: Dallas” cast member Phillip Willis in a voice-over on episode 9.  In that instance, however, he was referring to Taylor Garrett choosing to “explore” Chase Hutchinson‘s best friend Mohammed after learning that Chase was cutting in on his man Levi Crocker.  You’d think, a year later, things might have cooled off.  Eh… not so much.

The shade of it all…

Sooo, Chase was busted at NorthPark Center mall in Dallas last month for stuffing a little more than his stocking, and it landed him in handcuffs.  Taylor unabashedly leaked the news to the Dallas Voice who ran the story.

“Hutchison was seen taking two green scarves valued at $530 each from Barneys New York on Nov. 13 and leaving the store without paying around 8 p.m., according to a Dallas police report.

He was then arrested for a theft of more than $500 but less than $1,500, a class-A misdemeanor. He was released the next day on a $1,000 bond. His first court date is set for Dec. 18.

To be fair, I reached out to Taylor and Chase to see if they wanted to make a statement regarding this story and neither replied to my messages.  (UPDATE DEC 9, 2012: Chase has unfriended and blocked me on Facebook and unfollowed me on Twitter since reaching out to him about his arrest.) As fans may recall, Chase and Taylor were caught up in a bit of a love triangle with season heartthrob Levi Crocker.  Levi, on the other hand, never seemed to want to be tied down by anyone the entire season.

Rewinding back to the 2-episode reunion special hosted by Wendy Williams, the cast was all over Taylor, the token gay Republican of the group.  According to Taylor, he was the victim of hate crimes for his political affiliation on a couple of occasions last year.  The cast didn’t seem to buy his allegations.  At least Taylor could take the crown for giving the best BJs, according to Levi. 😯

  1. – Thanks for including my recent article on the matter in your post as a “Related Link”. This whole story is just a mess! Taylor is enemy to anyone in Dallas and his friends aka minions will see it one day. To be fair, when I’ve seen him out at the gay bars here, people vom at his sheer presence and walk away. Beau Bumpas (the person he replaced) would’ve been better to have as a cast member! xoxo

  2. @thegaybeaner – you’re welcome! i enjoyed reading your article. sounds like you experienced some nasty backlash from Taylor, but like i said in my comment on your post, you also went at him pretty hard, too. life’s too short for all of this negative energy. i’ve never had my life filmed for the world to see on a reality show, so i don’t know what it’s like to deal with some ugly moments on camera. and why is Chase shoplifting, anyway? i don’t know what to make of it, but i know that fans of the show would want to know that this made the news recently.
