‘Mad Men’ Star Alison Brie: I Challenge Heidi Montag to a Mud-Wrestling Contest

Alison Brie may bear the name of a French cheese, but you won’t catch her cowering from a fight.

In fact, she’s picking one.

"Yea, it's on!" Alison (above) tells us of her Heidi smack-down.

Interviewed on WZAP Radio, the actress who plays Trudy Campbell on the AMC series Mad Men – and stars opposite Chevy Chase in the upcoming NBC sitcom Community – says she’s got The Hills star Heidi Montag in her sights.

When the subject of Heidi and her hubby, fellow Hills star Spencer Pratt, comes up, Alison tells host Zachary Sang:

“Don’t get me started. The only thing I would say about them is, Who cares? Why are they even famous?

“They need to get out of here. I’m over them. I was never into them. So I’m well over them,” she chuckles.

Later she adds, “I’ll unleash the fury on Heidi and Spencer. As we speak, I’m developing this rivalry. A few minutes ago, I didn’t even know them. Now I’m like, Yea it’s on!”

Then comes her (mock?) call to arms.

“I’m going to challenge Heidi to a mud-wrestling contest,” she says.

This isn’t the first time Alison – who has also appeared on Hannah Montana – has linked herself to a bolder-face name.

In February, she defended that show’s star, Miley Cyrus, after the pop tart was snapped in a pic making slanted “Chinese” eyes.

“I think people are too hard on kids in the entertainment industry,” she told Usmagazine.com in the wake of the controversy.

“If your average Joe was put under a microscope and scrutinized the way Miley Cyrus is, they’d be doing a lot worse… Everybody makes mistakes.”

Backstage Security to Jim McGreevey: No Hannah Montana for You!

Did former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey try to bribe his way backstage at a Hannah Montana concert?

Yes, says WZAP Radio host Zachary Sang, who happened upon the disgraced pol at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., last year – and whose tale is recounted in the New York Post‘s Page Six gossip column today.

“I was at a Hannah Montana concert and he was trying to bribe the security guard to let him get [backstage],” the 15-year-old student at Wayne Valley High School in nearby Wayne, N.J. – tells Dr. Blogstein’s Radio Happy Hour host Dr. Blogstein on this week’s edition of the show.

“I am a Miley Cyrus fan! Jim (right) with Zach at the Hannah gig in 2008.

“They wouldn’t let him in, though – they didn’t,” continues Zach. “I carry my tape recorder with me everywhere I go where I think people are going to be around.  So when he was done talking to the security guard by the door, I kind of inched my way in, put my record- er in his face and started asking him questions.

“I asked him why he was at a Hannah Montana concert and he just said that his daughter was there somewhere. But I didn’t see his daughter around anywhere,” adds Zach, an aspiring journalist who documented the interview on tape and later wrote about it in his school newspaper.

Jim, whose 2006 memoir, The Confession, chronicles the rise and falls of his political career, resigned from office in 2004 after admitting he had “engaged in an adult consensual affair with another man.”
