Sheridan Shuns Dog Food, Gilbert Is Game
LOS ANGELES “Desperate Housewives”actress Nicollette Sheridan and”Exorcist”head-turner Linda Blair were supposed to eat dog food during an event promoting”Dine With Your Dog Day.”
“This is not `Fear Factor,'”Sheridan said Thursday, balking at the idea of downing dog food.
Blair also declined, explaining she’s a vegetarian. But “Little House on the Prairie” actress Melissa Gilbert and Ross the Intern from Jay Leno’s “Tonight”s how were game and scooped up helpings of doggie morsels.
Actor James Farantino was also on hand for the midday kickoff celebration _ dubbed the”doggy social event of the season.”
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and governors of New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Nebraska and West Virginia proclaimed Oct. 21 as”Dine With Your Dog Day.”But the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza decided to unleash the party two days early.
Acid-tongued fashion critic Mr. Blackwell was on hand to applaud the best-dressed bow-wow and a pet psychic read paws.
Former”Eight is Enough”TV patriarch Dick Van Patten, whose Natural Balance dog food company was behind the event, said he wanted to show dog lovers how delicious pet chow can be.
