TMZ.com has an exciting exclusive: it spoke to a doorman at one of the most exclusive clubs in Hollywood, getting him to spill the celebrity beans on who is allowed in to these hot spots and which stars will try anything to get through the doors.
Take a quick guess as to which category Brooke Hogan would fall into. Anyway, on to the scoop ...
"You need to be on the permanent guest list," the source stated.
Nightclubs in Hollywood have guest lists that feature people who will always be treated like royalty. This doorman said such a list consists of about 300 individuals, included among them are obvious choices such as Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Simpson, and Christina Aguliera.
The next tier works like this: you can call and make a reservation if you have endless amount of cash (Brandon Davis, Stavros Niarchos) but even with a reservation, nothing is guaranteed.
Moreover, those in the news for positive reasons , or "hot," are likely to find a spot inside. In other words, Bobby Brown, there's a table at Starbucks with your name on it.
The TMZ spy also said there are always exceptions to the rules.
"Mike Tyson was let in once because we felt that if we said no he might start boxing with the staff!"
Being female usually works in your favor, but even Tara Reid will be turned away if she shows up with five guys (and two new boobs). Take notes from Keenan Ivory Wayans because "he wasn't on the list but he was with a date and looked embarrassed, so I let him in."
Finally, in a shocker, shouting about who you are won't exactly get you insisde. Once, Joaquin Phoenix tried to enter through the back door and was told to go to the front. Mr. Phoenix replied with, "You're making a a big mistake! Don't you know who I am?? I'm kind of a big deal."
Therefore, it also appears that reciting Anchorman quotes won't work. Good luck to all!
Except for you, Anna Nicole Smith, don't even try it.
