Where in the world is Rufus Morellos? In 1999, the more popular gay mags simultaneously came out with photos of a snuggly-cute twinkie by the name of Rufus Morellos. The photos of the then-18-year-old were rather come-hither – a young boy in various states of undress. What more, he had the likeness of then teen idol Rico Yan [now deceased], who was too wholesome to pose like what Rufus Morellos was doing. Rufus Morellos then became an overnight queer sensation. Yet, not much happened to his career after the photo opportunities. With the demise of the sexy flicks in that era, he also disappeared from the scene.
