Last week we told you how excited Mary Carey was to be debuting as a Wingette in the Wing Bowl on Feb. 5 at the Wachovia Center.
But Chris Weinerman, a co-owner of the World Famous Gold Club (1416 Chancellor), where Carey dances Feb. 3-6, says 610 WIP has since told him Carey cannot be a Wingette because she's been in hardcore-porn films.
Really? Because Katie Morgan, a hardcore-porn actress who hosts HBO's "Sex Tips" and who is at Cheerleaders (Front & Oregon) next week, is slated to be a Wing-ette, as are Alektra Blue and Kaylani Lei, both porn stars, who will be there for Delilah's (100 Spring Garden).
Weinerman says Corey Purcell of WIP's marketing department told him that those clubs had spent more money in advertising on the station than he did and that maybe Carey could serve as a Wingette if he spent more.
Weinerman, whose spot holds fewer than 100 people, told us that he felt like it was "a shakedown" and that he doesn't have the same advertising budget as other clubs.
CBS Radio market manager Marc Rayfield, who oversees WIP, told us yesterday that our report last week that Carey would be a Wingette was "incorrect," and that "any announcement stating otherwise is erroneous, and was done so without WIP's knowledge or consent. Wingettes cannot elect themselves."
Asked whether Carey's exclusion was related to the Gold Club's not buying enough advertising on the station, Rayfield replied: "We partner with many clubs and welcome their dancers. We have no such relationship with the Gold Club. That is why Mary is not appearing."
Wing Bowl generates the biggest crowds of the year at area strip clubs.
On yesterday's Angelo Cataldi morning show, the station revealed that "Jersey Shore" star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi will be at Wing Bowl, though we don't know in what capacity.
