Gossip website, TMZ had an all-hospitality day on Wednesday, reporting on the price of Prince Harry's Wynn Encore Tower Suite and on Lindsay Lohan's unpaid tab at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont.
"Hey London taxpayers...look what ur $ buys in Vegas," commented "Stu" on TMZ's outing of the Prince's possible pricetag of $8,000 a night in the Wynn Encore Tower Suite.
The site described Harry's suite as a "two-story, 5,829-square foot duplex with 3 master bedrooms."
Meanwhile, elsewhere in hospitality celebrityland, TMZ reported that the Chateau Marmont (no stranger itself to scandal and gossip through the years) has withdrawn the welcome mat for Lindsay Lohan because of an unpaid $46,350.04 tab for the 'Liz and Dick' star's recent stay.
TMZ quotes "sources close to Lohan" as saying she thought Lifetime Television was picking up the tab as part of her deal on the recently filmed biopic in which she plays Elizabeth Taylor — another celeb famous for big hotel bills, albeit paid ones.
Lohan's hotel bill extras included $3,145.07 in minibar charges alone.
Chateau Marmont staff expressed "horror" that this "private matter between the hotel and one of our guests" was leaked by a member of (Lohan's) entourage.
Both TMZ and the The Daily Mail published correspondence between the Chateau's general manager, Philip Pavel and Lohan in which he tells her that she must have her belongings out of her suite by August 1 and that she is no longer welcome "on the property or in the restaurant" until the matter is settled.
The Daily Mail also published a multi-page unpaid itemized invoice to Lily Rosemand (presumably Lohan's hotel pseudonym).
Lifetime TV has not yet made a public statement yet on Lohan's attributed allegation that the bill was supposed to be paid by them. Perhaps Lifetime will end up footing the bill as an (expensive) part of their PR campaign for Liz and Dick.
