Plus, David Walliams performs with The Showbears at G.A.Y. & Big Brother’s Scott Mason warned for drinking perfume!
X Factor and BGT mogul Simon Cowell, who will be 53 years old on October 7th this year, has revealed that now his engagement to Mezghan Hussainy has been called off, he thinks it’s fair game to flirt with, well, pretty much anyone really.
Speaking to the Sun, Simon said, “If you are single, you can flirt.”
Wise words indeed. Didn’t apply to the whole Dannii Minogue situation, no?
Simon made the remark when asked if he’s more likely to put pretty wannabes through to Boot Camp from this year’s auditions rounds.
He added, “We’ve definitely put girls through because they are cute, in the same way the girls put guys through – it’s just the way of the world.”
And of the revelation that he’d had an affair with former judge Dannii Minogue, as hinted at above, Simon said, “I’ve been a naughty boy – that’s why I got into the music business. I’ve had my fair share, nothing too bad.”
However, he added that while the interest in him is flattering, it can of course mean that no part of his life is private…
But he insisted, “I’m immensely flattered because it means people watch the shows.
“Without the shows being popular no one would know who I am!”
And finally, of how he’s getting on with newbie X Factor USA judge Britney Spears, Simon said, “There’s a kind of a mystique about her. She’s not on the show to be ‘Britney Spears on a TV show’, she’s actually there to prove to the world there’s more to her.
“She wants to watch the stuff back to know what she’s done well and what she can improve on.”
In other reality TV news today, Simon’s fellow BGT judge David Walliams has once again shown his support for gay song and dance troupe The Showbears by performing on stage with them at G.A.Y. in London.
The Showbears performed a series of Kylie Minogue covers before David ran on stage to join them.
He later tweeted several pictures of himself with The Showbears saying, “We’re back, back, back… !”
He added, “So I re-united with the Showbears for one night only at G.A.Y in London.
“Just like on the TV I knew only some of the words and dance moves.”
I still struggle to believe David’s straight!
Anywho, our final snippet of reality TV news today is that Big Brother housemate Scott Mason got a telling off from the show’s bosses after he was spotted spraying perfume into his mouth!
The bizarre incident occurred when BB had refused to supply the housemates with any booze by way of punishment for some of them discussing nominations, and saying that he needed “a buzz” Scott evidently hoped that the ethanol in the cologne would provide it.
An insider told the Daily Star, “They [the show’s producers] were gobsmacked by what he had done. This has never happened on the show before.”
Last night a spokesman for show added, “Scott was asked not to spray perfume into his mouth for health and safety reasons.”
Yikes! How desperate would you have to be to want the taste of perfume in your mouth?! *Shudders and says ‘no ta’.
