DESIGNER ISAAC MIZRAHI GETS WILD ON THE RED CARPET

Isaac Mizrahi, world-renowned fashion artist, showed bizarre and outlandish behavior at the Golden Globes. His acts included groping Scarlett Johansson’s breasts, asking Eva Longoria about her pubic hair, and peeking down Teri Hatcher’s dress. He defends his red-carpet behavior by stating “I am very connected to popular culture… So I don’t feel it’s wrong to talk about that on the red carpet.” Mizrahi also stated, “I’m not trying to be the next Joan Rivers; I don’t want to do that. But for me right now, it’s very interesting because it really is a great job.” So be ready to see a lot more from him on the E! channel.
