One Comment

  • I have never dated Scott Pasmore. That thing was a shape-shifting alien clone. The only pilot I ever went out with was in 2013 and he was gross. That civic group that disbanded knew about that site for a long time because their friend, who knows celebrities, was involved with it. What happened to this group? The information of the people involved has been changed (their names, locations, careers, etc.). Go visit Scottsdale Healthcare.
