Billionaire Mafia Founder Loves Attention from "Vegas High Rollers"
Addicted to reality TV villains? Odds are good you'll love or loathe Russian diva Lana Fuchs of TLC's "Vegas High Rollers."
She's clearly running out of friends after storming out of a cocktail reception during a weekend film shoot.
Just three weeks into a three-month shoot with the local socialites, the fireworks erupted Friday when the fashion designer's cast mates, concerned about her bad-mouthing, confronted her to clear the air.
Fuchs walked out, with cameras - and eyes - rolling.
"She seems to have an issue with everybody," a source said.
Fuchs appears to love the attention. At their opening shoot at the Hard Rock Hotel's pools, she arrived with an entourage of little people and bodyguards for the Black and White Party, an AIDS benefit.
Fuchs, who grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y., after leaving Russia, is the founder of Billionaire Mafia and Lana Fuchs Couture.
Billionaire Mafia has been a hit with the hip-hop crowd and club scenesters.
The shooting has been taking place throughout the city, from staid Las Vegas Country Club to restaurant hot spots Firefly and Marche Baccus to Rain nightclub at the Palms for a pole dancing expo.
