”As the ‘Scrooged’ production was beginning,” recalls Mitch Glazer, ”Billy asked O’Donoghue and me to go with him to this Mexican desert resort for a little male bonding. We did a lot of swimming and hiking, and Billy was really sweet to all the other guests, who loved meeting him. Unfortunately, there was this one Beverly Hills woman, a Rodeo Drive type who wore furs in the blazing sun, and she insisted on treating Billy like he was some ornament to her vacation.
”On her last day, she was pressing him for autographs and things, and Billy always complied. Finally, she cornered him for yet another autograph and he calmly said, ‘O.K., but I’ll have to have something in return. I get to throw you in the pool.’ She laughed, saying, ‘Sure, you do that,’ as he signed - and then he went for it, escorting her toward the deep end of the pool. She dropped to the deck, gaping, but Billy reminded her that a bargain was a bargain, and he slipped his hands under her, rolling her - furs and all - into the water.”
