Beauties queuing up to be America’s Next Top Model flipped out and began a stampede when a car overheated in Manhattan this week. The casting call had attracted thousands of aspiring model/reality show personalities to the Park Central Hotel on West 55th Street.
But, as the New York Daily News reports, “An overheating car triggered a stampede of catwalk-craving cuties,” while the Post adds, “The situation spiraled further out of control when a man hurtled over a barricade and slapped one of the girls in line.” Perhaps showing why they are models and not rocket scientists, the girls feared the car would explode, while others screamed that the man had a gun.
A woman waiting for her chance told the News, “The girls were running like it was 9/11 part two. I feared for my life.” Ultimately, three people were arrested for disorderly conduct and inciting a riot and six people were injured.
CRACKPOT actress Rose McGowan could ensure a low budget movie makes millions – thanks to her bizarre IRA rant. Rose, who played a sexy witch in the telly show Charmed, left fans spellbound at the premiere of Fifty Dead Men Walking,when she said: “Had I grown up in Belfast I would have 100 per cent joined the IRA.”
However, though her idiotic remarks were slammed by the producers of the movie about an IRA infiltrator, the negative publicity has persuaded distributors all over the world to buy the rights to screen it. In her notorious rant, McGowan, 35, whose dad is Irish, added: “My heart just broke for the cause. Violence is not to be played out daily and provide an answer to problems – but I do understand it.”
Made on a shoestring budget, Fifty Dead Men Walking, which would probably only have got a limited release without Rose’s shocking intervention, is based on Martin McGartland’s 1997 memoir about a young Catholic in Belfast recruited by the British. Says a movie insider: “The people at Handmade Films who produced this were quick to condemn Rose’s comments. But secretly they are probably thrilled because they paid peanuts to make it and the bad publicity is going to turn this into a monster hit. Rose is a bit of a maverick who doesn’t play by Hollywood rules – but despite her despicable views, fans love her because she’s a bad girl. That’s why she is always being cast in dark roles as a witch or a killer.”
Handmade Films executive Guy Collins made a series of deals to sell the film – in which Rose plays a Prove femme fatale – worldwide shortly after the recent Toronto Film Festival.
FURIOUS Catholics have branded Ghostbusters star Dan Aykroyd a ghoul – after he suggested it could be
‘okay’ to have sex with animals. Aykroyd was one of a series of Irish Americans to contribute to Kerry Kennedy’s book, Being Catholic Now. In the book, the funnyman first irritates devout Catholics by saying he backs gay and lesbian priests. Then he outrages them further by condoning bestiality.
Says Aykroyd: “I’d embrace gay and lesbian priests, because I don’t believe homosexuality is immoral. I draw the line at bestiality because it’s unfair to the dog or the cat. If the dog or the cat had consciousness, then that’d be okay with me. Sexuality has nothing to do with morality.”
Irishman Bill Donohue, the president of America’s influential Catholic League, is disgusted at Aykroyd’s remarks. He blasts: “If I were a pet owner and was going away for the weekend the last thing I’d do with Fido is drop him off at Dan Aykroyd’s house.”
Foul-mouthed funny man Denis Leary shocked fellow celebrities this week by poking fun at Ricky Martin, Britney Spears and David Duchovny. And Leary – whose parents John and Nora both emigrated to America from Killarney – might now consider going back there for good, given the hostile reception he got for his cheeky wisecracks.
Leary, who was hosting the Fashion Rocks awards in New York, drew embarrassed titters as he repeatedly sniped at Spears and Duchovny. In one barb, Leary quipped: “Britney Spears will not be here tonight but we’re gonna do a little Britney tribute later on. I’m gonna chug a bottle of NyQuil (cold medicine), do seven shots of vodka, shave my head and make out with members of the paparazzi.”
But he saved his crudest joke for pop star Martin, who has been plagued with rumours about his sexuality, even though he recently had two kids to a surrogate mum. “Ricky Martin will not be here tonight,” Leary said. “He just had twins today. Surrogate mum. Yeah, they had to do it that way because babies don’t come out of other men’s arses!”
It seems to be a year for Leary to bite the hand that feeds him – he has also written a book called Why We Suck in which he brands Americans “fat, lazy and stupid.” In one extract, Leary rages: “I’m sick of low esteem and fake fat-suit-wearing female talk-show hosts and extreme makeovers and steroid-laden home run hitters and Reese Witherspoon movies and Paris Hilton‘s himbo boyfriends and celebrity rehab and Dr. Phil.”
He hasn’t been in a decent movie since Platoon but Charlie Sheen doesn’t care. A new poll by TV Guide shows he’s coining it in, thanks to his role on lacklustre sitcom, Two and a Half Men. Apparently, Sheen gets $825,000 for each weekly episode.
That’s more than enough to keep money-grabbing ex Denise Richards in the style she is accustomed to. She might now want to get her hooks into Sheen’s fellow CBS star William Petersen, who takes home $600,000 an episode for portraying investigator Gil Grissom on the hit police drama “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”
Meanwhile, despite all her complaining about the mean script writers, Katherine Heigl is the best paid female TV actress, raking in $13 mil for her role on Grey’s Anatomy. It’s unlikely she will complain about that.
The catwalk hopefuls on reality TV show “Project Runway” have been living the high life at The Gotham Organization‘s Atlas New York building. For the fourth season running producers have holed all the contestants up in the impressive 66 W. 38th St. rental building.
Gotham fixed the 15-minutes-of-famers up with six units, a combination of one- and two-bedrooms that range in square-foot size from 650 to 1,117. The units were on the 25th floor in a building where starting rents are $3,500 for a one-bedroom and $5,500 for a two-bedroom.
That’s high enough up for the losers to make a fashionable mess when they throw themselves out of the window.
Working as a publicist for $50 million girl Heather Mills must be a challenging job. But Michele Elyzabeth apparently finds it a little too challenging and has handed in her notice after four long years. The last straw, she says, was when Paul McCartney‘s ex-wife called her “stupid.”
“I refuse to be subjected to her outbursts,” bleated Elyzabeth to US tabloid TV show, Extra. “On reflection and given the way I have been treated, I now have sympathy with much of what the British press has reported about her. Yesterday, we engaged in a heated argument during which she called me “stupid.” I reminded her that she was not “God” and she answered, “I will never ever talk to you again.”
While we admire Michele’s principled stand, you can’t help wondering how she would have carried out her job successfully in the future if Heather was never going to talk to her again.
