'Long Island Lolita' subject Joey Buttafuoco resurfaces on TV set
UPI News Service, 11/03/2005
Joey Buttafuoco -- the notorious subject of a string of "Long Island Lolita" made-for-TV movies -- is now running an on-set catering business.
Buttafuoco earned his spot in U.S. pop culture as the central figure in a tawdry Long Island, N.Y., triangle that ended with his teenage lover, Amy Fisher, shooting his ex-wife, Mary Jo.
Inside TV magazine reports the former auto body repairman is now running a Mister Freeze concession, serving protein shakes and ice cream to the cast and crew of ABC's "Desperate Housewives" and NBC's "Crossing Jordan," the New York Post reported Thursday.
Buttafuoco moved to Hollywood several years ago to seek a career in acting, but instead found himself looking at the inside of a jail cell for insurance fraud.
