Brian not pressing charges against his wife; discusses soft core porn films.
Survivor Thailand winner Brian Heidik is back with his wife Charmaine Heidik (aka C.C. Costigan) and they are “working it out”; he isn’t pressing charges for her assault, TV Guide reports. Of his naked filmography, he tells the magazine, “It’s funny how Michael Douglas and Bruce Willis do the same thing for a few million dollars and they consider it art, but I do something for [a lower] budget and it’s considered soft porn.” He also says that Ken was full of chuay jai when Ken said that he’d figured out Brian’s porn secret while taping the show.
