You'd be forgiven for thinking this is Rip Torn, but it's not, it's James Lipton - the host of 'Inside the Actor's Studio' which can be seen on the Biography channel. (You flick past it on your way to E!). I don't care that you've never heard tell of him before, I can't spout sh*te about the holy trinity of t*ts (Paris/Britney/Lindsey) EVERY day. Does my sanity mean nothing to you?!! *breathes* It might interest you to hear the sycophantic one used to be a pimp in Paris before he devoted his life to schmoozing actors under unforgiving studio lights. Lipton said, "This was when I was very very young, living in Paris, penniless, unable to get any kind of working permit... I had a friend who worked in what is called the Milieu, which is that world and she suggested to me one night, 'Look, you'll be my mec...' We would translate it perhaps... as pimp. We were earning our living together, this young woman and I, we made a rather good living, I must say." James also reportedly set up sex shows in hotel rooms for American tourists: "I had to accompany my clientelle to the Rue Pigalle, which is where these things occurred. And then I'd take them up to the room and I had to remain there because they were very nervous, they were young Americans for the most part... and they didn't speak French." It's a hard life, but someone has to exploit it.
