The Hollywood Walk of Fame attracted a boisterous and eclectic crowd Friday – with many in costume like their favorite characters from The Village People who received a star. The 70’s disco stars still tour- in fact they opened for Cher last time she was in LA. The Indian Felipe Rose (above) was an original group member – “cowboy” Randy Jones and “cop” Victor Willis left the group years ago. The event had a fascinating twist because former lead singer Victor Willis showed up in a fake cop uniform and watched the ceremony from the sidewalk. Later he signed autographs at a Hollywood Blvd store. Victor made more money than anyone in the group because he gets royalties for writing the lyrics to their biggest hits YMCA, Macho Man, and In The Navy. For years he’s battled a raging drug problem (it destroyed his marriage to Phylicia Rashad of The Cosby Show.) Years ago at a low point he was seen selling Phylicia’s castoff clothes on the street in San Francisco. He says he’s clean now. You can see The Village People perform at the LA County Fair.

    They’re still a couple of “DIE HARD FAGGOTS” we’re talking about?

    I thought all these faggots were gone to the place where all faggots go…..and this place is NOT known to be freezing cold.

    I thought the original Village People were gay. Or was Phyllia’s husband bi-sexual?

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
