Fleiss calls TV bio-pic 'ridiculous'

LOS ANGELES, March 24 (UPI) -- Former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss is furious over an unauthorized television movie about her life, MSNBC reported Wednesday.

Jamie-Lynn DiScala, best-known for her portrayal of Meadow on "The Sopranos," plays Fleiss in a USA Networks production set to air Monday, but the former madam told MSNBC's The Scoop she thought the script for "Call Me: The Rise and Fall of Heidi Fleiss" was "ridiculous."

"I don't know who it's supposed to be about, but it's not about me," Fleiss said. "Everything was inaccurate. They're just using my name for a movie."

Insisting she has no intention of watching the film, Fleiss said the script has an "All About Eve" aspect that "is totally made up."

Fleiss said she is much happier with the screenplay for a feature film about her life in the works and tentatively set to star Nicole Kidman.
