Accused in 1977 of sexually assaulting an underage girl–a Tinseltown hopeful, the adolescent was handed over to Polanski, by her mother, then taken to Jack Nicholson’s house for a photo shoot that culminated in the sexual assault. The Academy-award winning director fled LA, just before sentencing, & has been exiled in Paris all these years.
This new terrorist plot demonstrates the strengths and weaknesses of our Constitution. The alleged wannabe evil-doers (how’s that for retro Bush-isms) were living in this country–working the system! The central figure of interest, 24-yr old Afghani Najibullah Zazi, has been here for 10 years & is a legal resident. Employed in a strategic location— airline shuttle driver–Zazi had among his effects: too many backpacks & too much peroxide; bomb recipes; & a food cart licensed to work the Wall St. area!!! A deadbeat, Zazi racked up more than $50K in credit card debt in a very short time, then declared bankruptcy. DID THE BANKS finance his trip to Pakistan to train at a terrorist camp? LOOKS LIKE IT!
There may have been a lot of talk about Kanye West yesterday, but I saw a clip from Oprah that was a stunner. It was Whitney Houston’s revelation that her descent into hell was caused by her addiction to Bobby Brown, whom she called the “Best Sex In The World!!!” & I thought Tommy Lee held that title!!!
In a restaurant recently, I was seated, at separate tables, across from BB. No pretty sight, he was w/ a woman & was definitely into large servings of PDA & “charm,” topped off w/ plenty of smarmy baby, baby, babies. BLAHH!!! & yes, there was a baby at the table!
Lindsay Lohan is now the creative director of Ungaro!!?? I thought the only time she made fashion news was when she left home w/out her panties. Just what audience is she supposed to attract?
Euro-auto heirs are now going mano-a-mano in the fashion arena. In one corner, w/ ITALIA INDEPENDENT, is Lapo Elkann, the allegedly kinky, great-looking Fiat kid. The challenger is big & tall, soft-bodied Simca scion, Jean Pigozzi. Not only is Pigozzi occupied “saving the world”—from his yacht, villa in Cap D’Antibes, Manhattan apt., & mansion overlooking the Bois de Boulogne –w/ Liquid Jungle Lab– he’s now at work marketing LIMOLAND, a men’s clothing line.
BTW: Since I never Tivo, I’m watching The Real Housewives of Atlanta, not Project Runway, on Thursday nights. & likey Full Front Fashion on the Sundance Channel..
a talk show guest is never easy. I watched Stephan Jenkins from Third Eye Blind take up the challenge w/ Chelsea Handler. He plugged his new CD, Ursa Major, while making her a martini. He finished by throwing her down & moving in for a big clinch. I was amused.
