Andy Dick thrown off Surreal Life 5 set; Janice Dickinson scares Omarosa.

Andy Dick thrown off Surreal Life 5 set; Janice Dickinson scares Omarosa.
Visiting the set of The Surreal Life 5, Andy Dick acted like–get ready for it–a dick. An “insider” tells Page Six that “producers and security had to wrestle him to the ground in order to throw him off the set. Andy was completely out of control.” Dick was making a guest appearance; he isn’t one of the five cast members. Page Six also reports that there was a confrontation between Omarosa and Janice Dickinson that involved a knife. According to the Post’s account,

“During a photo shoot with the whole cast, Omarosa became hysterical at the sight of Janice holding a prop knife, our spy said. Omarosa told Dickinson to ‘back the [bleep] up with that knife,’ causing Dickinson to taunt: ‘Who wants a haircut?’ Omarosa then exploded in a tirade of expletives, scaring the rest of the cast so much that they all left the shoot.”

Sadly, we have to wait until September to see all this play out on TV.
