PLAYERS: Dennis Rodman
Dennis Rodman, just back from his bizarre trip visiting Kim Jong Un, was escorted out of the Time Hotel in Midtown Manhattan on Sunday after spending hours at the restaurant bar loudly telling anyone who would listen what a great guy the North Korean dictator is, reports The New York Post. "He was at the bar at Serafina for three hours," a spy told The Post.  "He kept saying what a nice guy Kim is, and how Kim just wants to talk to President Obama about basketball.  He was waving around a signed copy of the dictator's huge manifesto, telling everyone they should read it." "Dennis was making a total jerk of himself. He wouldn’t leave, and he wouldn’t let anyone talk to him about shutting up, or what an oppressive country North Korea is," claims the source. "Eventually he had to leave the bar because the bartender was starting to get [bleep]ed-off." That kind of behavior would probably land the former-NBA star in the Bukchang internment camp back over in his new buddy's People's Republic — but here it amounts to only being eighty-sixed. Rodman— who is a regular at the hotel — finally left the hotel but staffers say he is a nuisance and are fed up. "He’s always a problem," said one source. "He is loud and does weird stuff. Like, he’ll come down to the front desk in his bathrobe in the middle of the night and make demands that people have to run to the store for him. He’s belligerent about it. I thought he was just on TV getting sober?" Rodman made a surreal appearance on "This Week" with George Stephanopoulis earlier that Sunday morning and said "my friend" Kim just wants President Obama to "call him."  Rodman ended the television interview by saying, "Don't hate me." A representative for Rodman said, “He ended up going to the Marriott because he was leaving in the morning and we wanted him to be closer to the airport.” Another rep said, “The Time is Dennis’ favorite hotel . . . There were a lot of people taking pictures, his security just didn’t like it and asked to move him out of the hotel. There was certainly no incident.” If things don't go so well for the Worm in New York City, at least Rodman and Kim will always have Pyongyang.
