An elderly man who won a steamy date with two top prostitutes after his grandson entered him in a contest on U.S. radio shock jock Howard Stern's show died the evening before meeting the women. Johnny Orris was picked as the winner of Stern's I Want To Get My Grandpa Laid after his grandson revealed the 86 year old had not had sex since his wife died a decade ago.
Orris was flown to Nevada on Thursday (12Dec13) to prepare for a meeting with the women who would be showing him a good time at the infamous Bunny Ranch, but he reportedly choked on a piece of steak while dining with his grandson and died, according to TMZ.com.
Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof, says, "He just wanted a steak before having sex with Caressa Kisses and Vanity. The bunnies loved him."
The two are holed up in Dennis Hof's notorious Nevada whorehouse The Bunny Ranch as Chyna attempts to get Buttafuoco fighting fit for his upcoming ring clash with Louis Bellera.
Bellera is married to Amy Fisher, who was dubbed the Long Island Lolita by the U.S. media in the early 1990s after she shot and severely wounded her lover Buttafuoco's wife Mary Jo.
Fisher, who was 17 at the time, was initially charged with first-degree attempted murder, but eventually pleaded guilty to first-degree aggravated assault and served six years in prison.
Like Chyna, she is now a porn actress.
The star's sibling Jason was holidaying in Hawaii over the Christmas (09) period but was swept out to sea by a strong current on 28 December (09).
Fleiss was left devastated by his shock death - which happened just two days before her 44th birthday.
But she will miss his funeral as she is participating in British reality show Celebrity Big Brother.
Her fiance Dennis Hof says, "Heidi was so devastated she almost pulled out of Celebrity Big Brother.
"She said, 'I loved Jason. I don't want to be disrespectful to him.' I told her she needed to get away and stay busy so she does not have time to dwell on this awful thing."
Top Story: Kevin Spacey Recants Wild Mugging Story
Kevin Spacey made, and then retracted, a complaint he made to London police over the weekend that he'd been mugged in a park--and he wants people to know he is sorry. The Daily Mirror newspaper reported that Spacey had been "brutally mugged" in a south London park at 4:30 a.m. Saturday while walking his dog. But he later told British Broadcasting Corp. radio that the truth was less dramatic. Spacey said a young man approached him near the Old Vic Theater--where he is the artistic director--with a sob story about needing to call his mother and asked to borrow his phone. But the man took the phone and ran off, with Spacey hot on his tail. According to The Associated Press, Spacey said he had reported the incident to police, but went back a few hours later to clarify his story. The 44-year-old actor said he "woke up after a couple of hours' sleep and I thought, you know, there is a difference between assault and theft and it just wasn't (right) for me to not come clean about my own level of embarrassment and being humble at the fact that I got taken by the oldest con going."

Hooker Sues Motley Crue's Vince Neil
A former Moonlite BunnyRanch prostitute filed is suing former Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil for at least $20,000 in lost wages and other costs stemming from the July 10, 2003 incident, the AP reports. Andrea "TrixXxie Blue" Terry claims Neil grabbed her by the neck, pushed her against a window and pulled her to the floor after she and another prostitute refused to have sex with him until he paid $4,000 for each woman. The lawsuit also claims brothel owner Dennis Hof was negligent because he failed to call police. Hof, however, told the Las Vegas Sun he believes Terry made up the story against Neil, who was at the brothel at Hof's request. Hof said Terry should have known Neil would not have to pay for her services because they don't charge celebs; they pay for the services themselves. Neil, who has a home in Las Vegas, pleaded no contest earlier this month to misdemeanor battery in the incident. He was fined $1,000 and ordered to complete anger management classes.
HIV Scare Doesn't Stop Porn Actors
Despite the HIV scare that lead to a voluntary moratorium on many porn sets last week, many adult movie actors said they would keep working. About a dozen porn production companies froze production after two performers tested positive for the virus that causes AIDS.

The last industry HIV scare was in 1999, when a male actor tested positive for the disease. No other actors have been found to be infected as yet.
Judge Annuls James Brown's Wife's Marriage
A Charleston, S.C., family court judge signed an order Thursday dissolving the first marriage of the wife of singer James Brown the grounds that it was never consummated, clearing the way for an annulment between her and the Godfather of Soul, clearing the way for their remarriage.

When Brown, 70, filed for an annulment of his marriage to Tomi Rae after he was charged with criminal domestic violence in January following a fight at their home, her 1997 marriage to Ahmed had to be annulled before the Brown annulment could proceed. James Brown is expected to appear in magistrate's court in June for a jury trial on the domestic violence charge and his lawyer said he plans to remarry Tomi Rae after the annulment is granted.

Comedian Dave Chappelle, whose sketch comedy series Chappelle's Show is Comedy Central's highest-rated program in the Wednesday 10:30 p.m. slot on any network among men 18-34--the most difficult demographic for any network to reach--wants more money.

Top Story: Britney Could Be Next Daisy Duke
Teen pop idol Britney Spears could be the next Daisy Duke--tiny shorts and all. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Spears has been mentioned as one possibility to play Daisy in Warner Bros.' big-screen version of The Dukes of Hazzard, based on the hit TV series that ran from 1979 through 1985. Other actors who have expressed interest in the project include Ashton Kutcher for the role of Bo Duke, Paul Walker as Luke Duke and Anthony Anderson as Boss Hogg. There is no word, however, on who might portray Roscoe P. Coltrane. Although there are no details on scribe Jonathan Davis's screenplay, reports say it will have Coltrane and his dog chasing 'dem Duke boys while Boss Hogg plots to get their land with a scheme involving out-of-town businessmen. Daisy, in her little shorts, will most likely serve as a distraction as the Dukes vindicate themselves--all in the name of moonshine.
Joaquin Phoenix Defends Buffalo Soldiers
Joaquin Phoenix said his latest movie, Buffalo Soldiers, has nothing to do with the conflict in Iraq. In the film, which has been criticized for its negative depiction of American soldiers, Phoenix stars as a battalion supply clerk stationed in Germany at the close of the Cold War who runs every racket imaginable at the base, including black marketing Mop & Glo and cooking dope. But Phoenix said he does not think the movie, written and directed by Australian Gregor Jordan, is a critique of the U.S. military. "It's more of a statement film and kind of a cynical statement at that," told the Boston Globe Sunday. "It explores the idea that war is inherent in man, and there's a seeming desire for conflict. It could be applied to any situation and any military."
Box Office Nose Dives in July
July proved a disappointing month for the North America box office as theater admissions fell below the $200 million mark for the first time since 1997. According to The Hollywood Reporter, estimated admissions for July were $194.1 million, down 4 percent from the $202.5 million tallied during the same time last year. Ticket sales were up slightly--2 percent--compared to last year, but the increase has been attributed to a rise in ticket prices rather than the number of tickets sold. Of July's 13 wide releases, as compared to 12 in July 2002, only two films grossed more than $100 million each as opposed to three in 2002.
