Oscar Night Makes Gary Busey Blow Up

We're a little late sending out this Gary Busey berserk alert, but I'm not putting this off any longer. The fury has been building since last Sunday's Oscars. What on earth was this guy thinking?

First, Busey made a total donkey of himself on the Kodak Theatre red carpet by stalking, of all people, Ryan Seacrest. Seacrest squirms and nervously tries to reassure Laura Linney and Jennifer Garner not to worry, but the snubbed Busey will not be denied. Things go terribly wrong rather quickly as seen in this video.

Now I don't know about you, but if I'm lighting a candle for a Seacrest interview and getting tossed aside for Seth Rogen, I'm moving on. I think someone had to forcibly remove Busey from the area for fear he would french kiss Rogen and his Mini-Me. Where is Ben Affleck when you need him? Oh that's right, taping Jimmy Kimmel Live.

But the truly scary moment was yet to come. Gracie Stagg, an 11-year old tweenager who interviews celebrities for nearly cried in this segment with a What's the Buzz ABC News correspondent. Clearly, Busey was belligerent, condescending, and downright scary when Stagg tried to interview him at an Oscar after-party. In the quintessential moment of a pot calling the kettle black, Busey disparages Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears, saying they're "idiots and losers" not celebrities. Then he makes a left handed reference to "Paris I assume Hilton," although Stagg's question had nothing to do with the ditzy celebutante.

Except for a nightmarish cameo on Entourage and a string of forgettable and/or unreleased movies, this guy has barely had a career since his horrific 1988 motorcycle crash. Riding without a helmet, Busey almost died from severe brain injuries. Still, after begging like a dog for Seacrest, he should have been thrilled by Stagg's attention. By pushing the poor dear's camera into the ground and grumbling about the interview being enough, Busey not only showed a lack of common sense, but also a basic lack of humanity.

.Putting the finishing touches on new designer balloon gown line.People can continue to feel sorry for this blowhard and offer him pity parts, but the rumor mill says they needn't bother. Busey already has a gig as a fashion designer. Which is just as well seeing as he has so much hot air to spare.
Final fitting for new designer balloon gown line. Admit it. You were fooled. It's just someone who looks an awful lot like Busey. I still say the guy missed his calling and should seriously think about balloons.
