RODNEY DANGERFIELD HAD NO SHORTAGE OF EGO
Rodney Dangerfield always griped that he got “No respect,” but we suspect he actually had an outsize ego. The Caddyshack comic, who died in 2004 at the age of 83, had been seriously trying to get himself CLONED in his later years! And his widow Joan recalls that when Rodney was performing in Las Vegas he learned that Elvis Presley fans paid top dollar for scarves soaked in the singer’s sweat. Since he was perpetually sweaty, Rodney attempted to sell vials of his own sweat at his shows, but the MGM Grand banned him from doing so. (Can you imagine? – he thought his seat was as desirable as Elvis’s!) Anyway, his wife Joan admitted to Merle Ginsberg at The Hollywood Reporter that she STILL has vials of Rodney’s sweat in her refrigerator.
