Secrets of a red-carpet escort: New Hollywood tell-all by professional arm-candy

Christopher Gaida is a professional escort at Hollywood black tie events, which does not mean euphemistically he is paid to have sex with the stars but rather that he ushers them on his arm at red-caroet functions. He's written a tell all, due out today, that exposes some great diva antics. The highlights: ************* At the 1999 VH1 Vogue Fashion Awards, Gaida was assigned to escort Sharon Stone. As he introduced himself, she refused to shake his hand, snapping that he was to walk three steps ahead of her at all times and never look back. At the 2003 VH1 “Divas Duets,” Chaka Khan stormed through a hallway, shoving him along the way and ripping his shirt. Gaida says she did not apologize. At the 2000 GQ Men of the Year Awards, Gaida was escorting Susan Sarandon, when Julia Roberts frantically approached him, yelling that she was supposed to go onstage right that moment. Gaida showed her the schedule, which made clear it was another 20 minutes before she was to go on. But she was insistent. “You must be mistaken,” she seethed, raising her voice two octaves. But Gaida didn’t buckle, and eventually convinced the star to back down through an equal level of insistence. (A decade later, he served as Roberts’ escort for a benefit event and mentioned the time she had yelled at him. She apologized, and now recognizes him and says hello at events.)
