Is Amanda Scheer Demme's reign of celebrity-fellating terror about to end at the Roosevelt Hotel? Today's Page Six reports that the Roosevelt's owners are trying to tear up her contract to operate the poolside Tropicana Bar and her personal Batcave of exclusivity, Teddy's, due to clashes with the city and before a potentially damaging Rolling Stone profile hits the streets:
Our insider said, "The hotel is under a lot of pressure from the city to get Amanda out." Among the complaints:
* Underage drinking: "Every week there is another 18- or 19-year-old like Lindsay Lohan, Kirsten Dunst [Ed. note—Dunst is old enough to get hammered legally, even if Demme is running the bar.] or the Olsen twins in the clubs drinking and getting drunk."
* Noise violations: "Amanda was arrested last year for noise violations."
* The Courtney Love incident: Love left the Tropicana on a stretcher and then an ambulance in what was deemed to be an overdose, although her reps insisted she was just "exhausted."
* Demme's "mistreatment" of hotel guests: Page Six documented Demme turning away hotel guests from the pool area last summer and even forbidding a wedding party to enter, although the bride had been assured she would be able to use the pool.
* Discrimination: Last year, Super Bowl MVP Terrell Davis filed a racial discrimination suit against Demme after she had him booted from Teddy's. He claims she uttered racial epithets. Then, last month, an associate of Demme told Los Angeles magazine that rival club owner Brent Bolthouse would get nowhere now that he was partnered up with "the Jew" [Sam Nazarian].
Even if "the city" is truly less than pleased about the above sins (really, barely an average night at the Trop) and Demme is expelled from her cozy wombs at the Roosevelt, we have a feeling it won't be long before she sets up shop nearby. This is Hollywood, after all, where people will line up by the dozen if someone merely encircles an open manhole with a velvet rope and promises that Linday Lohan had fallen in and died just moments before.
