Heidi Fleiss: Parrot Madam
On July 31 in the USA, the Animal Planet channel will be airing an interestingly-titled documentary about Heidi Fleiss: Prostitutes to Parrots. The press release says that the programme "follows Fleiss as she struggles to care for the new loves in her life - more than 20 macaw parrots." The former Hollywood madam has in recent years been the subject of interest for her large collection of birds – however, this has at times been problematic, as the press release goes on to explain:- “With her home covered in bird poop and monthly bills for the birds soaring into the thousands, the former madam must balance her need to tend to the birds at home with the necessity of leaving them to earn a living outside of it”. In 2008 Fleiss was accused of leaving a rented house in Nevada in a catastrophic mess due to her pet parrots.
