Days after dressing up as his ex-wife Liza Minnelli collapsed on stage, David Gest was rushed to the hospital with chest pains and respiratory problems according to Sky Showbiz.

A spokeswoman has said: "At 5.30am, David Gest was admitted to hospital, after suffering from severe chest pains and respiratory problems.

"David is stable and receiving the best medical attention. We are awaiting a further update from doctors."

No other information was released, but I wonder if it was just gas. 


David Gest does his best Liza Minnelli

That is so wrong of David Gest dressing up as his ex-wife Liza Minnelli.
The only positive thing I can say about him is since he did I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, he hasn't come back to The States. 

David Gest is no Simon Cowell

So ever since David Gest did I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, he has been huge over in The UK for some reason. Well ITV thought they would cash in on his popularity and make him a Judge on The UK version of Grease You're The One That We Want and let's just say it is not going so well. Just because he was married to Liza Minnelli does not make him a stage casting-know-it-all and his co-Judge David Ian agrees. In fact it is so bad for David Ian he walked off during a taping and almost didn't return according to Digital Spy.  "At times I find David extremely irritating. Once during filming I just got up and walked out. I'd had enough. If I didn't have such an important role in the whole thing I wouldn't have returned. I've been exasperated with all the judges for not concentrating as much as they should. I audition people every day. I'm struggling to work out why David and Sinitta are there. He is one of the most 'different' people I've ever met. He's nice enough, but has some very strange, mad moments." I love that "different people I've ever met," what a nice way of strangest and more irritating people I've ever met. So PC, but it works.

Also according to Digital Spy, David Ian is not the only ones having problems with Gest, seems the producers have told him to tone down his act. Seems Gest is trying to be like Simon Cowell, and he is no Simon Cowell. Here are some of the things he has said to the contestants that made the producers sit down and have a talk with him.  "I've got bowel movements more exciting than your performance." and "I've a cousin who could dance better and she only has one leg!" (Who knew he was related to Heather Mills?) While I did get a chuckle at those criticisms, they are more hurtful than helpful. Hopefully his 15 minutes will be up soon because I don't want to see him on Dancing with the Stars next season.

David Gest is to host his own chat show. The estranged husband of Liza Minnelli was such a hit on reality TV show ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!’ he will soon be starring in a show all of his own. David told ITV’s breakfast show ‘This Morning’: "I will be fronting my own chat show, and it will be on in the very near future. "I think it will be on a heavyweight network like this one as well!" The 53-year-old music producer won an army of fans when he appeared on the jungle reality show, including a royal admirer. David revealed: "I went to the Royal Variety Show and met Camille, sorry Camilla, and she was very nice to me – I think she knows who I am!

Actually it might be interesting to have him host a talk because he is such a character, but still it is him.

I think he realized there is not one woman left in America that would marry him.


Yipee! David Gest moving to London!!!
November 29th, 2006 under David Gest. [ Comments: none ]

David Gest is planning to move to London when he finishes his stint on reality show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here. The music mogul and estranged husband of Liza Minnelli is sick of the media attention he gets in America, as opposed to the positive publicity his appearance on the jungle show has attracted in the UK. His bodyguard Imad Handi reveals, "He’s moving to London. He loves the fact that there’s not as much media coverage of him in the US. Once he decides where he wants to live, I’ll get a place nearby." Gest is producing a four-day concert, entitled David Gest’s New Year’s Weekend All-Star Soul Spectacular in London next month (28-31DEC06), which will feature performances from Candi Staton, Martha Reeves + The Vandellas, Bonnie Tyler and Peabo Bryson.


And we are not trading him for Heather Mills…lol


David Gest insists he is not gay
November 23rd, 2006 under David Gest, Reality International. [ Comments: none ]

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ star David Gest has rubbished rumours he is gay. Gest, the ex-husband of Liza Minelli, told jungle mate Scott Henshall he would not be ashamed to admit if he was gay, but insisted he had never had sex with a man. He said: "They said was I straight, was I gay? "I always said, bring me one guy I’ve been with – I’d love to meet him because if I was into it, I’d be proud of it." Openly gay fashion designer Scott had to drink a witchetty grub smoothie and taste a kangaroo tongue yesterday (22.11.06) in the latest Bushtucker Trial. The 31-year-old refused to eat locusts, a kangaroo penis, kangaroo anus and spat out the kangaroo tongue, but did manage to swallow the vile tasting drink, eat a silk worm and munch a disgusting cheese fruit to win three stars for the boys’ team.

David Gest demanded Zebra milk
November 16th, 2006 under David Gest. [ Comments: none ]

STAFF at a top hotel branded David Gest their worst client ever — after he asked room service for a pint of ZEBRA milk. Gest, 53, was staying at the five star Lanesborough in London with then wife Liza Minnelli. Staff at the hotel, used to looking after royalty and celebrities, expected showbiz legend Liza, 60, to be a diva. But according to a worker at The Lanesborough — where suites can cost £10,000 a night and each guest has a butler — it was I’m A Celebrity star Gest who was the prima donna. He said: “He was an absolute pain. Anyone would think he was world famous, not his wife. He made a string of bizarre requests. It culminated in him ringing the butler bell and demanding room service bring him a pint of fresh, chilled zebra milk. “When he was told we only had cow, goat, sheep and soya he threw a screaming fit. He said we should ring London Zoo to see if they had any.” Head butler at the hotel, Sean Davoren, eventually found a shop which had frozen zebra milk. He said in an interview: “I’m not usually fazed by anything but I thought somebody was taking the mickey here. “Luckily, I remembered a fellow who’d helped me before. Sure enough there was a shop at the top of Regents Park where you could buy the stuff. “It was £15 a pint and the guest had a pint every day.”

David Gest is a D!CK
November 14th, 2006 under David Gest, Reality International. [ Comments: none ]

I’M A CELEBRITY drama queen David Gest has been given a dressing down after a series of tantrums and rows. Shocked show bosses and fellow stars watched in amazement as the freaky-looking concert promoter… Threw a wobbler after one day because he couldn’t have chocolate and tried to bribe a cameraman £40,000 to get him some treats. Sent TV censors into overdrive by launching a foul-mouthed rant about Lauren Booth, 39. Upset comedienne Faith Brown, 62, by spying on her in the shower and making remarks about her infamous boobs. Gest caused a rumble in the jungle within 24 hours of arriving in the Aussie camp. And his antics appear to confirm producers’ worst nightmares about the ex-husband of Liza Minnelli, 60. The creep, 53, has failed to grasp that it’s a survival series and keeps calling it "a holiday". When he discovered the camp diet consisted of rice and beans, he went nuts. He called out to a crew worker: "How much do you get paid for this show? I will give you £40,000 if you get me three Hershey chocolate bars and deliver them to me here tomorrow." His pleas fell on deaf ears before he launched into a bitching session with Toby Anstis, 37, telling the DJ he was still smarting from the comments Lauren made before the show. She said: "I can’t believe David Gest is going in. Is that for real? He’s scarier than Michael Jackson." Gest told Toby: "That Lauren is a f***ing c***. You should have heard what she said about me." TV censors then leapt in to bleep out Gest’s rant. Later he upset Faith after spotting her taking a shower. In front of her, he said to Jason Donovan, 38, Matt Willis, 23, and Toby: "You could breast-feed all of us. We would all have milk." But the comedienne failed to see the funny side. She raged in the Bush Telegraph: "I’m no prude but I don’t like that." After getting a dressing down in the Bush Telegraph, Gest seemed to settle in and even volunteered to clean the loo.

Seriously, how did Liza stay with him as long as she did? He is just so gross, in every sense of the word. 


David Gest is a celebrity?
November 7th, 2006 under David Gest. [ Comments: none ]

Jason Donovan, Liza Minelli’s ex-husband David Gest and Cherie Blair’s half sister Lauren Booth are starring in the sixth series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here – and the former Neighbours star is favourite to win. The names heading into the Australian jungle include former Busted star Matt Willis and ex-Hear’Say singer Myleene Klass. The others are Heart FM DJ and TV presenter Toby Anstis, comedienne and impersonator Faith Brown, fashion designer Scott Henshall, former news reader Jan Leeming and Footballers’ Wives and The Bill actress Phina Oruche. Gest, 48, whose union to Minnelli is yet to officially end due to a lengthy divorce battle, confessed that he had not done the dishes in 25 years and asked: "How am I gonna cope without a maid?" He said he is considering returning to his singing career when he leaves the jungle. The show’s Executive producer Richard Cowles promised that there would be big surprises in store. He said: "The celebrities have always felt that the one thing they had on their side in camp was each other – but this year there won’t necessarily be safety in numbers. "There is one big, never before seen surprise for the celebrities and whether it’s a welcome one remains to be seen. With a few twists as well as some of the best Bushtucker trials seen yet, the celebrities certainly have a challenge ahead. We are really excited to see how things unfold." The new series begins next Monday at 9pm.
