Barry Artiste, Now Public Contributor
Yep, you know the Entertainment World and Society is going to "Hell in a Handbasket" when a 15 minutes to Fame "Feel Up" by Prince Harry of Local Bar Tart "Cherie Cymbalisty" , Alberta's answer to Pamela Anderson, has garnered "PopTart Cherie" world wide Media attention, everything from Canadian made for TV offers on the (Blink twice and you'll miss it) Tryst , to Nude spreads, Newpaper interviews etc. Cherie agent describes his client as a Chaste and Shy Girl, possibly leaving us with Mennonite memories of a typical Prairie Girl.
Of course Cheries stated lifelong ambition is to be a Playboy Bunny. Certainly a Chaste and Shy Playboy Bunny.
Certainly a career move one can be sure her parents are proud of their Now Famous Daughter's accomplishments to what amounts to what some believe and state was a British Prince "Royally Popping a Canadian Cherie", versus Cherie's "Virgin Mary" version of just a Chaste Kiss.
Yep, I believe it, I also believe we will have World Peace by the time I finish typing this story.
CALGARY -- Like anyone who lives her life behind the bar, Cherie Cymbalisty -- of Prince Harry fame -- knows a thing or two about perfecting the ultimate cocktail.
Here's her mix: Take one part racy nightclub, a splash of a saucy bar top, toss in a tawdry tabloid -- and the twist -- a roguish, red-headed, red-blooded soldier prince and some spontaneous flirtation.
This spring, Cymbalisty served up that intoxicating concoction.
A jean-clad second lieutenant in the British Army, a.k.a., His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales, third in line for the British throne, strolled into Cowboys nightclub with some of his army training buddies and zeroed in on the sexy shooter girl.
What followed: Some drinks, a few brief words, some text messages, an après-bar rendezvous that ended with a chaste but "hot" kiss on the cheek.
And bam, a celebrity caché that pushed the local server to the top of the headlines and ever closer to her dreams of a Playboy mansion.
It goes down well. After she exclusively told her tale to the British tabloid News of the World for a reported $30,000 paycheque, the Cowboys bartender's name and sometimes scantily-clad image vaulted across international headlines.
Though an interview with Cymbalisty was requested, her agent was unable to contact her. In addition, he said, Cymbalisty is "very shy."
Cowboys has since been torn down and Cymbalisty has been bartending at Coyotes. She has done some travelling, mainly in Las Vegas, said Chris Tahn, a lawyer for Penny Lane Entertainment, which owns Cowboys and Coyotes.
She inked a deal with a local brewery for two as yet un-shot beer commercials. Negotiations that began six months ago for a spread with Maxim magazine are "ongoing," said Tahn.
But the spinoff he's most excited about are discussions with a "major [Canadian] television network" about a made-for-TV movie on the story of When Prince Harry met Cherie, he said.
Pamela Anderson is at the top of the wish-list to play Cymbalisty, said Tahn. "We're in the planning stages right now," he said, insisting there's plenty of fodder for a full-length feature. "It may even be a two-part. There's more than enough there."
The princely encounter, though brief, was life-altering for Cymbalisty, a girl who once listed modelling and becoming a Playboy Bunny as career aspirations, said Tahn.
Some said she sold out Prince Harry -- with whom she said she truly was interested in furthering a relationship -- by shopping her story to the tabloids. Overnight, she became Ms. Oh my God that Cherie is Shameless. Everyone wanted a piece of her. The new-found celebrity affected Cymbalisty's personal life, too.
Shortly after her infamous tryst, Cymbalisty pulled down her public Facebook page. People stopped her on the street to talk to her about the young royal. She received stalker mail from Germany, Afghanistan and all around the world. An impostor tried to auction off her autograph on EBay.
Through it all, Cymbalisty's family stayed supportive. And the barmaid has few regrets, said the lawyer.
Just the opposite -- she's canny enough to spin the night's events into her own celebrity-like claim to fame, said Tahn.
