Mark Holden Sounds Like He Is Not A Fan Of Former Colleague Dicko
Mark Holden has come out today saying he no longer suffers from “relevance deprivation syndrome” like his former colleague from Australian Idol, Dicko. Though it sounds more like a case of sour grapes.
In the Herald Sun Mark Holden has a swipe saying:
“If you’re not on television you don’t exist. You know Dicko is already in there with (Nine boss) David Gyngell and he’s already trying to cash his chip,” he said.
“He’s done an amazing makeover of himself into the lovely nice Dicko.
“I get asked to do Dancing with the Stars, I get asked to do Celebrity Apprenticebut, as a barrister, it doesn’t seem to be a part of me any more, fortunately.”
Holden said the only thing that could tempt him back to the small screen would be a character role in a drama or a show about the courts.
Interestingly enough Dicko is quite open about his fame whore ways in last weeks TV Week he said:
“The downside of fame is just how addictive it is. When the threat of it disappearing looms at large, you start to feel needy and really pathetic that it’s a commodity you want so much. It makes you feel dirty like any addiction would, I guess.”
