Media mogul gets his Maserati stuck in Central Park, rescued by celebrity

January 28, 2011 12:00 AM

People working the 9 to 5 grind weren't the only ones getting stuck in the snow this morning around the Northeast after another storm walloped the coast. Barry Diller, the famous media mogul who owns InterActiveCorp, got stuck in Central Park on his way to work while driving his Maserati, reports AOL News.

If only all of us had that problem.

Gawker, a popular blog about celebrities and New York City, broke the news first, and while there's no official confirmation from reports, Diller's car is most likely a GranCabrio.

As Masterait only makes one convertible, and the car in the photo has a black soft top, it would stand to reason, it's a GranCabrio. Either way, it's a sick car and Diller obviously has enough money to take it for a ride in the slushy snow, so it can't even be the most expensive one he has!

The best part of the story, however, is how people came to realize that his car got stuck in the first place.

None other than CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric noticed poor Barry struggling to get out of the white stuff.

"She was on her way to work," a spokesperson for Couric said. "It was definitely random... an only-in-New-York moment."
