Jeremy Piven texts women en masse to race to his hotel – 1st one there wins

fp_1617706_piven_jeremyexcl_ram_102908

Jeremy Piven hasn’t exactly been one of the most respected actors in Hollywood. Long before Sushigate, he was generally considered a legendary douche bag. In fact I think you could argue that he was lower on the totem pole than Brandon Davis or any of the guys from “The Hills.” He was an epic player and a huge joke.

It’s hard to say what Piven’s mercury poisoning scandal has done to his reputation. It seems like most in Hollywood think it’s bull, but there are definitely some who feel compassion for him. But lest you forget that Piven is still a total sleaze, Gatecrasher has a little update on his love life.

Mercury is rising everywhere for Jeremy Piven these days, including his love life. The “Entourage” actor has found a brand-new girlfriend in blond stunner Ashley Chontos, a 23-year-old model-cum-bottle waitress at Mansion NYC who he met at Britney Spears’ birthday bash.

According to pals of Chontos, Piven is so crazy about the SUNY Binghamton dropout that he’s even planning on breaking tradition by taking her to the Golden Globes. For the past four ceremonies, he brought his mother, Joyce, but now he’s said to have arranged to fly Chontos to the West Coast on Jan. 10.

Despite Piven’s obvious interest, an insider tells us that the ex-Choice Model was actually runnerup for the actor’s affections. “Jeremy met several girls at Britney’s birthday party,” the source says. “He was really interested in a model who happens to be Ashley’s direct competition, but he was so insistent in his pursuit that he freaked her out. She stopped returning his calls, so he settled for Ashley in the long run.”

Says another source: “He’s a numbers boy. He gathers up girls’ numbers when he’s out. That night, he sent out a mass text to everyone he’d met, saying, ‘Come to my room – whoever responds first gets me for the night.’”

[From Gatecrasher]

That is one of the sleaziest things I’ve ever heard. I couldn’t care less about Piven’s love life – he’ll be dating Chontos for a maximum of three more weeks. His “long run” is under a month. But texting all the women you meet in one night and trying to get them all to make a mad dash to your hotel room is super creepy. I cannot imagine how it’d feel to know the only reason you were sleeping with someone was because you got there first.

I wonder if Piven texts his remainders to let them know not to show, or if he has to field knocks on his door all night long. How creepy. I’d feel sorry for Ashley Chontos, but I’m sure she knows what she’s getting into. Unfortunately I bet Piven will leave her with some parting gifts.

Here’s Jeremy Piven arriving at the Barrymore Theatre in New York City on October 29th. Images thanks to Fame.

    You know, I’m kinda betting there aren’t that many takers. I’m picturing it more like he sits there all night just waiting, and when the maid knocks in the morning he leaps up thinking “allright! finally!” and then it’s just the maid, and he goes back to bed. Like a particularly unintelligent dog… never learning…

    Right on, Barb. That’s pretty much the scenario I envisioned.

    I think there’s an error in the title. It should read, “1st one there loses.”

  4. kate says:

    what a bloated, sweaty loser…LMAO!!!

  5. Dorothy says:

    I am not sure if I believe this! It sounds like a stupid joke. Where is the proof I say???

    I have never liked this guy. Aside from the hair plugs, he’s just an all around creep. His parents run a reputable actor’s studio here on the North Shore of Chicago and they’re well liked. It’s well known that in his early years he “won” (was given) every lead role in the parent’s local theater productions, and I guess that’s to be expected, but it cleared the way for him to receive adequate exposure.

    When he’s back in town, which is often, he thinks he’s “King of the World”. No one likes him and he’s regularly booed when he shows up at Wrigley Field for Cubs games. He’s Chicago’s version of Spencer Pratt. In my opinion just about any jerk could have pulled off the Arie Gold character on Entourage for which he has won several awards over the past few years. I just wonder how long those hair plugs take root and if he needs to sneak away to the doctor’s office every other week?

    he’s such a loser

    Hair plugs are the worst. If you must cover up the bald, at least find a decent-looking rug (if such a thing exists).

    This kind of behaviour is crazy, but I’ve seen it. I used to work at a summer lodge and one of the guys there was crazy hot and all the girls wanted a fling with him. After a big staff party there were about 15 girls lined up outside his room for their 20 min. with him. I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it. Where’s the self-respect?

  10. Di says:

    I don’t believe this story. He would never send a message like that out because it would damage his career. This sounds like a jilted ex-girlfriend spreading rumors.

  11. carey says:

    I don’t know guys…I kind of love him….jerkiness aside. I mean I love him as an actor, not as a contender for humanitarian of the year….NOBODY else could bring the soul of “Ari” to life the way he has. I was in Piven theatre when I was younger. I don’t believe it is true that he was given the parts…He was so very gifted.

  12. Jane says:

    Psh. If he had a wig you guys would all say it looks incredibly fake. Nothing makes you happy.

  13. kelly says:

    “…damage his career”??

    Are you being sarcastic? It’s hard to tell online…

    If not, who do you think places these rumors? This smacks of overcompensation to me, as if he has to carefully prop up his image lest someone else come out with something devastating, like ohhh I dunno…the truth?

  14. Codzilla says:

    Jane: You’re wrong. Annoying you makes me happy!

  15. paris herpes says:

    EW The Piv really thinks he’s famous enough for girls to line up out the door to be with him?! GROSS! I believe this rumor because this dude’s ego is HUGE. He really isn’t even hot either. He’s just a douchebag.

    A definition for the term ‘winning’ I wasn’t previously aware of.
