Talan “demanded” to talk to press at a party, but no one wanted to talk to him

Laguna Beach star Talan Torriero, who was recently engaged to Kimberly Stewart after dating for weeks and weeks, may not be as popular as he thinks he is. Instead, it might just be his connections to famous people that keep him in the spotlight.

Page Six, which refers to him as a “reality nuisance,” says Talan “walked in and demanded to walk the press line” at LA’s The Lobby last week. Page Six’s source says that no one wanted to talk to him:

“No one was really interested and Talan kept insisting that nobody could ask him about the car crash he was in when Stavros Niarchos was driving the week before. That would be the only reason they would talk to him. There were no takers.”
