Happy Birthday to Me, Part 2
Punk'd ... Suspended ... Now Snubbed!
Those big show-biz names invited to Terrell Owen's A.C. birthday party Monday night? Reports suggest none showed.
"T.O. Birthday Bash a Bust" is the title of a Cold Pizza video clip on ESPN's Web site. (Click "more videos" under the video player on the right.) Reporter Jeremy Schapp tells how he crashed the party and says, "I didn't see anybody who's actually been seen walking the real red carpet in Hollywood."
No trace of Will Smith, Jessica Simpson, Beyonce, Usher, Ben Afleck, Jamie Foxx, or even Vivica A. Fox, who attended last year.
"The whole thing was kind of embarrassing," Schapp said, pointing out there was even a cash bar, which he called "strange."
Hey, a guy has worry about feeding his family, especially when his mega-million contract is worth peanuts.
Schapp admitted, though, he stayed only till "like 1 a.m." "Oh, Jeremy, you gotta have more party stamina than that," said ESPN's Dana Jacobson.
Yesterday afternoon, though, WIP's Howard Eskin also said no non-sports celebs showed, adding that many of the football players share T.O.'s agent, Drew "Next Question" Rosenhaus, and many of the women were paid showgirls.
American Idol-winner Fantasia declined an invite to sing "Happy Birthday," the Atlantic City Press reported.
An NBC10 online poll even asked fans if the Eagles who attended somehow insulted fans. Nearly 3/4 said no. Now a cash bar. That insults fans.
