Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About David Gest ... And Some Stuff You Probably Didn't Want to Know

Posted By on Tue, Apr 17, 2007 at 4:00 AM

It appears that MemphisFlyer.com's favorite Memphis celebrity, David Gest, has left us for the foggy climes of London. And who can blame him, really? As Jerry Lewis is to France, so Gest is to England — an unappreciated American cultural icon, minus the white socks.

Gest gets the major profile treatment this week from the UK Mirror: "He is the hottest star on TV, with prime-time shows, he's loved by millions for his wacky sense of humour and mobbed by fans in the street.

"But it hasn't always been like that. Before he shot to fame on I'm A Celebrity... last year, he's had to endure sniping from cruel critics who mocked his appearance and dubbed him a freak because of his looks.

"Now, with endearing frankness, David Gest reveals for the first time the truth about his plastic surgery, and hits back with: 'No one has a lower opinion of my looks than myself.'"

You can read more of Gest's "endearing frankness" about his looks, his sexuality, Michael Jackson, and a bunch of other stuff you know you want to know, whether you admit it or not. And hey, this is just Part One of a multi-part series. We smell Pulitzer.
