Vinnie Jones ridicules Alex Reid's Hollywood hopes
Thursday 14 January 2010
Tempers flared in the Celebrity Big Brother house after Lady Sovereign took a tin of corned beef from the contestants' meagre food rations.
Former footballer and Hollywood hardman Vinnie Jones lashed out at Dane Bowers and Nicola Tappenden, insisting that because they had gone against his wishes and allowed the rapper to help herself to the food supplies they would be in charge of meals until Sunday.
In a heated discussion in the living room, he told them: "You two and Sov do the dinners, that's fair. You think there's enough so you do it."
Earlier Jones had turned on Alex Reid, telling him his hoped-for acting career was doomed in Hollywood because of his current reputation.
Jones, star of Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, tried to persuade the cage fighter, who is dating glamour model Katie Price, to admit he is not really a cross-dresser.
Jones told Reid, who has previously appeared in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks: "No one's going to want to work with you right now - if you offered me five million dollars to be in a movie with you, I wouldn't take it."
Jones told Reid that as far as the acting world is concerned he has been "sent to Coventry" because of what is currently written about him in the tabloid press.
He said: "People will cross the street to get away from you."
Reid was discussing his future career and cross-dressing antics with Jones, Bowers - who has also dated Price - Thong Song singer Sisqo, actor Stephen Baldwin and former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss.
Bowers told him: "Big Brother is a wicked opportunity for you because at the moment you're only known for being a cross-dresser and dating someone famous. This will give you the chance to show the real you."
Fleiss said: "I'm sure this is an opportunity for you to be more than someone's boyfriend."
She added: "I think you've a little bit of homosexuality in you, but that's okay."
Reid replied: "We all have that potential. I'm trisexual."
Jones demanded: "But why don't you keep quiet about it then? Don't think you can take the mickey out the media. They will chew you up. You're no more a cross-dresser than the rest of us."
Quizzed by the other celebrities on the positives of his current image, Reid said: "The good stuff is I have got a lovely partner (in Price). That's the good thing about it. I've got a TV show coming out."
But Fleiss told him: "Your TV might flop, millions of people are watching you now, on this show."
Baldwin advised: "You can control your destiny by being consistent. Say 'I am this' and then be it. Right now you're a frickin' tossed salad. You're a little bit of everything."
Sisqo added: "A Jack of all trades."
As the discussion finally calmed down Jones got up and walked into the kitchen.
"Is that Alex hour over? Alex gets his counselling every day and then he he runs around the garden with no clothes on," he laughed.
Meanwhile, Jonas Altberg, aka Basshunter, was in the bedroom talking to Katia Ivanova as he filed his toenails.
And glamour model Nicola Tappenden was crying as she misses her young daughter Poppy.
