The Seattle Post-Intelligencer brings news from People Magazine.
We, in turn, bring news from The Post-Intelligencer that Criss Angel is finding solace from the slings and arrows launched by theatre critics in the arms of Hugh Heffner’s former girlfriend.
None of the news has anything to do with the beautiful and talented Stephanie Courtney, currently appearing on television as the spokesperson Flo in the very creative Progressive Insurance advertisements. We love Flo and we are not alone. Check out The Strange Allure of the Progressive Insurance Chick.
The second-hand nature of this report perhaps reveals the value Inside Magic places on the story.
The critics have been harsh on Criss Angel’s Believe.
Fortunately, there seems to be an almost endless supply of potential girl friends to buoy his name in the press.
Holly Madison is dating closer to her own age bracket. People magazine reports the former girlfriend of 82-year-old Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has been the arm candy lately of Las Vegas illusionist Criss Angel, 40.
Apparently fans of magic and Playboy magazine should be happy or impressed.
Mr. Angel has been in the arms of many a woman found in the fickle focus of the popular media. The list runs from Minnie Driver, to Britney Spears, Cameron Diaz, to Lindsay Lohan.
Vegas bookmakers say there is even money Criss Angel will soon be seen with Hillary Duff, Betty Rubble, Flo from the Progressive Insurance commercials played by Stephanie Courtney, and eventually Molly, the first daughter of Dolly the Cloned Sheep.
On the opening of Believe, his new Cirque du Soleil show, Angel told People, “This is one of the most special evenings for me in my life and I cannot think of a more beautiful person, a more special person, inside and out, than Holly to spend it with.”
Inside Magic’s gossip columnists will keep a jaundiced eye on the wires for the latest in this ever-breaking story. Or not.
