Guardian Angels will flip Crips, Bloods; Dice Clay wants series with wife, girlfriend.
The founder of the Guardian Angels, Curtis Sliwa, has signed to do a show in L.A. where he “will join 25 members of his L.A. street patrol as they work to convince young Crips and Bloods to go straight.” Rush and Molloy quote Silwa, who says, “We’re going to live in the neighborhood and talk to these young men and women that are halfway into gangbanging and try to get them out. We’re going to turn them into protectors, instead of predators. It’s going to be the opposite of ‘Growing Up Degenerate Gotti.'” He’s clearly not happy with A&E’s Growing Up Gotti, possibly because, as they point out, “Gotti’s brother John Jr. has been indicted for ordering the botched 1992 attempt to kill Sliwa.” … Comedian Andrew Dice Clay is shopping a series, the Daily News’ gossip couple reported yesterday (fifth item). The series “could star him, his wife and … his girlfriend.” He explains, “I’m not the greatest husband – I’ve got a girlfriend. It doesn’t really please my wife, but then if I was looking to please her I wouldn’t have a girlfriend. I mean she knows about it, and I guess she’s okay with it. Plus my kids like both of them.”
