Criss Angel is a ‘press whore’

Criss Angel is a “press whore” who is just using Britney Spears. The two apparently hooked up the night they met and he’s been milking the attention ever since. Friends of the illusionist provided Page Six with these details:

“He doesn’t even really talk to her when they go out. This weekend at [club] LAX, they weren’t seated at the same table, but when the paparazzi were around he jumped in all the pictures. . . . The paparazzi all have his number.” Meanwhile, some of the stories leaked to the tabloids about how Angel was orchestrating a big VMA number for Spears using mirrors are false. “She is just doing a straight-up performance of her new single, ‘Gimme More.'”

So the secret to Criss Angel’s magic is to latch on to celebrity train wrecks and bask in the free publicity. Got it. What camera-grabbing illusion will he pull off next? Grief counselor for Owen Wilson? AA sponsor for Lindsay Lohan? Or perhaps he might – no. Jesus, no. He wouldn’t, would he? Dammit, his show is on A&E. He totally would. What if, for sheer publicity and in disregard of public safety, Criss Angel impregnated Paris Hilton? Somebody get me a crucifix. And whiskey. Lots of it. I’ll be under my bed for the rest of the day.
