At 11:45 a.m. Del C. of Celebrity Big Brother phones me to say that the producers have decided not to invite me to participate in their January 2. 2009 series after all. [SEE LINKS - Sept 30, Oct 7]. I had written them diffidently two or three days ago, after our meeting at the Kensington Hilton, requesting an early decision, as I cannot hold the month open for them much longer; I thank him for their courtesy in telling me so swiftly.
Doing live, or nearly live, television is always a huge attraction, and the fee would have been nice, but not the, um, attendant difficulties.
Still, I wonder who put the "NO" stamp on it and why? I suspect that upon meeting me they felt I was not the raving lunatic they needed. Just as well. If they want a major liar and blame-denier, they ought perhaps to choose Professor Richard "Skunky" Evans.
