Stars at their utter worst

December 16, 1998|By Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Two recently published books celebrate the snipings of overpaid celebrities: "Hollywood and Whine," by Boze Hadleigh (Birch Lane Press, $19.95) and "Stupid Celebrities," by Ross and Kathryn Petras (Andrews McMeel Publishing, $9.95).

A sampling from "Hollywood and Whine":

"I don't mean to be a diva, but some days you wake up and you're Barbra Streisand." -- Courtney Love, after showing up hours late for a photo shoot

"I want a man who's kind and understanding. Is that too much to ask of a millionaire?" -- Zsa Zsa Gabor

Selections from "Stupid Celebrities":

"It was God who made me so beautiful. If I weren't, then I'd be a teacher." -- supermodel Linda Evangelista

"Nuclear war would certainly set back cable." -- cable-TV mogul Ted Turner

"I'm not a snob. Ask anybody. Well, anybody who matters." -- Simon LeBon, lead singer of Duran Duran
