The latest on Stanford & Sons honcho Craig Glazer: He’s head over heels.
“Well, about six months ago my manager at Stanford’s David – he’s a player, early 30s – told me that there was a girl at a strip club not far from here called Whispers that had asked about me a lot and was really cute and that I should meet her. And I said, ‘David, I really don’t want to date another dancer because the last one was Black Barbie and that didn’t end well.’
“I mean, strippers are good in bed and they’re exciting, but they’re trouble and can date anyone they want to, including Chiefs players. And you’re like a dog chasing a car, what do you do with them once you catch them? You’re not going to get married. It never ends well. And just because you’re sleeping with them doesn’t mean anything.”
So much for prudent thinking.
“So David introduced me to Jasmine and when our eyes met I felt something – a connection – a real connection. And she’s not my usual type, she’s small and thin. You know, not my usual bombshell, big butt. But she had a lot of charisma. We talked for 30 minutes and they gave last call – she didn’t dance for me, I don’t do that – so I said, ‘Do you want to go out?’ And she said she was single and had been dating Derrick Johnson of the Chiefs for several years. And I said, ‘What ruined it?’ And she said, ‘He’s married, but his wife lives out of town.'”
And so it began…
“So I went out with her and went head over heels for her quick and dropped all my other girlfriends,” Glazer says. “I dropped ’em all. One of my ex girlfriends came to the club recently and wanted me to go out with her just for sex and I ended up having to ditch her – and she’s a bombshell. And boy was she pissed and she told the other strippers that work with Jasmine to tell her that I was seeing her on the side. And Jasmine believed it and it really hurt our relationship because she believed it. She was going to come to LA with me this week where I’m meeting a new director for my King of Sting movie and she wouldn’t go. Which had me screaming and yelling about it – I was very pissed because I didn’t do anything wrong.”
“Well, that’s a step you take later,” Glazer says. “Because she has two very young kids and I’ve got a lot going on right now. Stanford’s is close to moving to a new location out south in Johnson County and maybe opening a new location in the Virgin Islands. And it’s just too much to take on now. I offered to get her an apartment close to me.”
Here’s the deal:
“I haven’t been in love for a long time and it’s nice to have that feeling again,” Glazer muses. “To fall in love once you get past 50 is very rare in life.”
“Well, it’s probably a doomed relationship,” Glazer says. “But most relationships go bad. I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m a bleeding heart. She’s had a tough life and I want to help her. I guess I see a little bit of me in her, when I was young.
“But my feelings have changed about her dancing because I care about her. Most of my friends are married and have grown kids and they don’t understand. But I’m still leading the life of a 30 year-old – I’m still on the football field.
“Maybe I’m looking for a new life. To settle down. Trade in my Lotus for a Lexus and become more of a regular guy. Get out of the single life. I mean, there aren’t many guys in Hollywood that do what I do – Charlie Sheen.”
“With my history of knowing dancers I’ve only known two strippers who got out and had pretty normal lives – got married and had children,” Glazer says. “I’ve dated 30 or 40 strippers and none of those worked out. I had a great time – I’m not mad at anybody.
“But it makes you feel seven feet tall when you walk into a restaurant with one of these beautiful, exotic women from the dark side.”
