Dennis Rodman was seen holding court Wednesday night at the bar at Joe's Stone Crab, where our source tells us he was "slapping everyone on their back as hard as he could, screaming in a loud voice, totally wasted." He then walked over to the host stand to ask for a table and "made a giant scene," causing a staffer to pull him aside, quietly telling him he'd not be seated. After that, not even a North Korean dictator could command the beleaguered baller a table as he was overheard telling his group--a male friend and his parents--they'd have to leave and go to Prime 112 instead, saying he can always get a table there. Police quietly approached and Rodman was overheard apologizing, saying he understood, whispering to the cop that he was "very sorry and respected the decision to kick him out." Was quite the scene, says our source, who says "he looked truly remorseful." Meanwhile, over at Prime 112, Rodman ended up happily nestled at an outdoor table on the restaurant's terrace and, at one point, smoking a cigar inside. "He's such a mess," said our Prime mole. And all was well again in his world. Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Pyongyang anymore.

Besides Police Women of Broward County, not too many reality TV shows have crossed the Miami-Dade county line. Other lines crossed are an entirely different story, however. That's about to change as Style Network is allegedly on the hunt for "dynamic" and "outspoken" Boca Raton-based mother daughter teams that sound very much like Big Rich Texas's Bon Blossman and Whitney Whatley---the most appall--er, amusing mother- daughter duo on TV since Lorelai and Rory Gilmore.
Big Rich Texas, for those who don't imbibe, is about a group of allegedly privileged women living the Dallas/Fort Worth country club lifestyle that's very similar to that which is found in Boca. Blossman and her daughter not only make it must see TV and should have their own show (probably already in the works), but they make most of the alleged Housewives seem to be what they really are: humdrum, wilty and witless. While reality television is far from rocket science, Blossman is as close to a rocket scientist as these shows get and a reality show's dream come true: a university professor of biology, biochemistry, parasitology, gene expression and physiology, as well as a published author of fiction, the CEO of a murder mystery party company and, of course, a recording artist. Her outrageous daughter is studying to be a doctor. You can't make this stuff up. Or can you? Like a good trainwreck, it's hard not to watch.
As for this mystery Boca show, the casting person couldn't reveal much and apparently the Style Network affiliation was supposed to be a secret, oops. We did ask them why Boca and not Miami and were told "Boca has the affluent people and the characters we are looking for which is why we picked it." The only real requirement here is that daughters be in their late teens or twenties; there's no age limit on the mothers. Those brave souls willing and able should email [email protected]
