David Bowie’s ex-wife Angie Bowie is currently competing on the UK’s hit show “‘Celebrity’ Big Brother”.. clearly they use the loosest possible definition of ‘celebrity’ to qualify people for the show.. as if evidenced by some of this seasons ‘housemates’.. David Gest? Gemma Collins? John Partridge? I think you see my point… Anyway the only person I knew other than the former Mrs Bowie is Tiffany ‘New York’ Pollard.. and that’s only because Joel McHale had a field day with her on his show ‘The Soup’ while she was a cast member of Flavor Flav’s reality dating show “Flavor of Love” and he subsequent spin-offs “I Love New York” and “I Love New York 2″.. Ms New York is nuts.
Here’s what happened.. When you’re in the Big Brother house the deal is you’re cut off from the outside world; however with the news of the passing of David Bowie producers felt they needed to tell his ex-wife and mother of 2 of his children, so they did. Angie then obviously upset confided in Tiffany saying “David is dead.” – Tiffany thinks Angie is talking about David Gest their fellow housemate.
So by the time it starts to settle half a dozen people are trying to console a woman that just heard something wrong while the woman whose ex-husband and the father of her children just died cries alone.
Listening ears people.
