GEST APPEARANCE 

GEST APPEARANCE

David Gest, the producer mostly famous for his rather embarrassing marriage to Liza Minnelli, has become a naturalized Memphian. To celebrate, he'll host a little coming-out party at the Cannon Center on December 6th. Though tickets may be purchased for as little as $45, the good seats range in price from $1,000 to $25,000. Potential advertisers can buy the center spread in his commemorative program for a mere $35,000. Considering that party guests include Topol, the Doobie Brothers, Patricia Neal, a host of other bands you probably thought had broken up, and a slew of golden-age celebrities you thought were dead, it's really quite a bargain. In related news, Charles Nelson Reilly has canceled his scheduled appearance with Opera Memphis due to illness. And no, I'm not making that up either. --Chris Davis (Note: A previously posted item about a blogger's taking exception to a News Channel 3 weather alert mentioned a response to that by Darrell Phillips, a newsman for WMC-TV, Action News 5. Some readers may have gained the impression that Phillips was an employee of WREG-TV. We regret the confusion.)
