It isn't the first time that Keith Barry says that he has been snubbed by Criss Angel, but Norm  reports on Criss Angel's recent visit to Keith Barry's show and his early exit. According to Norm, "Criss and three members of their entourage stood up in the seventh row and began leaving. Barry stopped the show and said, "I'd like to give a shout out to Criss Angel, who is in the house, in fact he's just leaving." Angel turned around and a bit sheepishly said something like, "Good show, man." After word spread accusing Criss of snubbing the Irish Newcomer, Norm asked each camp for comment. According to Steve Flynn, commenting for Angel, "Holly Madison started feeling bad almost as soon as they sat down. Criss didn't want to get up right then and be rude. Twenty minutes later, she was worse for wear. She was resting her head on Criss' shoulder. Criss was concerned it would look like she appeared bored. The decision was made to leave, Flynn said "No disrespect was intended by any stretch of the imagination. She was not feeling well."  Keith Barry later commented saying, "It is what it is. On a personal note, I've never walked out of somebody's show, good, bad or indifferent. I was surprised. I did hear Holly wasn't feeling good. But I thought it would have been nice had he had come over to me. But Vegas is a small town. I'm sure our paths will cross again."
