Reality Hacks And Unwarranted Hissy Fits
I find the self-important grandiose behavior of celebrities endlessly amusing. I never tire of reading “secret” contract riders for musicians (only turqoise M &Ms allowed, no eye contact from the staff, 100 bottles of Cristal post concert) and movie stars. What’s really hilarious is when a d-lister gets a little too big for his britches. I didn’t know who this guy is, and I write about pop culture for a living. From New York Post’s Page Six:
Chad Rogers, star of Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listings,” threw a tantrum when he was refused entry to the red carpet at the Genlux Magazine/Madison Kelly fashion party at Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills the other night. Rogers wasn’t recognized by a publicist while stars including Karina Smirnoff sailed past. A spy said, “He turned up late and asked to walk the red carpet. When he was refused, he was screaming, ‘What do you mean, you don’t know who I am? I’m on Bravo.’ ” Eventually he calmed down and was allowed up the red carpet.
You know what the perfect comeback would have been for that publicist? “What’s Bravo?”. I’m pretty sure he would have imploded on the spot.
