Foxy Failures in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Foxy Brown was expelled from anger management counseling — for being too angry. “Staff members said she threatened to become physically harmful,” said a probation lawyer. Maybe Foxy should be enrolled in an advanced-level program, along with Naomi Campbell and Michael Richards.
• Time Inc. is planning to fire up to 250 employees today. “It is safe to say it will be more than 200, it could go as high as 250, but it certainly won’t be 300,” said one source. Another person remarked, “It’s going to be bloody.” Time magazine named “You” as its Person of the Year. Wonder how they’ll tell employees that “You” have been terminated.
• Publishing company HarperCollins announced plans to shutter ReganBooks, the imprint launched by Judith Regan. Regan was the editor — later fired amid controversy — behind the infamous cancelled “If I Did It” O.J. Simpson book. The publisher also axed 10 employees. The list of O.J. victims just keeps on growing.
