Dita Von Teese shoots down Russell Brand’s fantasy


Dita Von Teese is the subject of many men’s fantasies, so it’s no surprise that someone other than Marilyn Manson would pursue her. Dita seems like the kind of woman who would appreciate the subtleties of courtship and romance. Unfortunately Russell Brand knows nothing of subtlety.

For a greater portion of 2008, Russell Brand has been vocal about his desire to do what Russell does best with Dita, and I’m not talking about including her in a stand-up routine. Dita was even the recipient of one of the now infamous voice message calls Brand did on his former BBC radio show, where he not so subtly told Ms. Von Teese exactly what his intentions were.

She defiantly told a newspaper: “I will not be shagging Russell Brand.

“Just because I gave him my number does not mean I’ll be going on a date with him.

“I was the subject of one of his calls once, but I didn’t answer the phone thank goodness!

“I just saw his name come up on the screen and thought: ‘I don’t think I’m going to answer that right now.’

“He was on air and it was just good female intuition.”

But Dita did admit: “I had another conversation with him on the radio shortly before he left his radio show and he is a lot fun. I like him.

“And I can totally handle guys like that.”

Something tells me Dita can handle almost any kind of guy. Judging from the one relationship she’s been in that I know anything about, Dita goes more for the depressive than the manic. As odd as I thought the visage of Dita with Manson was, it makes much more sense than Dita with Brand.

I’m a fan of both Dita and Rusell, but I have to say I’m very pleased and relieved that Dita refuses to go there. Dita is pristine, Russell is dirty, both have their allure, but never the twain should meet!

    Russell Brand disgusts me. He also disgusts a woman who used to sleep with Marilyn Manson, now that says something.

  2. SeVen says:

    its not 2009 yet Ceilidh :) I like Russel though, hes hilarious and shes beautiful but im not sure theyd work out :D I’m also REALLY envious of that dress… its amazing.

  3. geronimo says:

    Aw I like Russell but, wise move, Dita. Best to steer well clear of the Brand. And she looks fab in these pics, as usual.

  4. Alexa says:

    Russell – You can call ME!

  5. Amy says:

    Despite his lothario reputation, he is damn funny and much more talented than Dita. Have you ever heard her speak in an interview? Totally ruins the image — she ain’t too bright, which would explain the Manson thing.

  6. Deb says:

    I know it may sound snobby but-i hav a lot of respect for dita von teese after that. guys like brand get around because women just don’t say no but she showing she’s got some standards and i say good on her!

  7. Kaiser says:

    That’s it, Dita. Hold out for Clooney!

  8. 99 says:

    Pristine? You did say pristine, right? haha!! anyone who was married to marilyn manson is FAR from prestine. Gross!!

  9. km says:

    i know this is random, but what’s up with the dita’s legs in the full-length pics? that’s kind of gross :|

  10. I Choose Me says:

    Her dress is fab. @km it’s just the reflection of all the sparkly things on the carpet.

  11. Marcy says:

    Notice in the last picture as she’s walking up the steps, you don’t see the reflective discoloration. She wears actual silk stockings, which have the distressing tendency to reflect any sources of light harshly. The flashbulbs going off and bouncing off the glitter on the carpet are creating the weird effect in the previous pictures.

    Mister Brand is (what’s commonly referred to in the business) a piece of talentless public school shit.
    Dita von Cocktease is to Bettie Page what Mamie van Doren was to Marilyn Monroe – a pathetic imitation of the real thing.

  13. jess says:

    i dont believe her. she was married to marilyn manson for heaven’s sake. russell brand would be an upgrade. also…the way she phrases things reminds me of how i talk about guys im attracted to before im ready to admit it. lol

  14. ak says:

    “the way she phrases things…” The Sun always manages to make “direct quotes” sound like something directly out of the … Sun. I.e., I wouldn’t be surprised if she didn’t actually say some/most of this.

    I like Dita, but there’s a part of me that will always wonder about the sanity of someone who let Marilyn Manson touch her.

  15. Dani says:

    Am I the only one who thinks Dita and Marilyn were cute together?

    Come on. They both play dress up and it’s adorable.
