5523: Stone And Assorted Rockheads.
Causing tremors in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Actress Sharon Stone is catching heat for a remark she made last week. “I’m not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans because I don’t think anyone should be unkind to anyone else,” said the actress. “And then this earthquake and all this stuff happened, and then I thought, is that karma? When you’re not nice that bad things happen to you?” The head of China’s biggest movie theatre chain vowed to ban Stone’s films. Not that anyone was planning to see the washed-up actress’ work anyway.
• Senator Larry Craig is reportedly writing a book about his infamous arrest in an airport toilet stall. Sounds like bathroom reading for sure.
• The R. Kelly child pornography trial was delayed again, just as a woman was set to testify she engaged in a threesome with Kelly and the alleged female victim in the infamous video. A new witness was introduced by the defense, and the guy claims to have information that disputes the contentions of the threesome witness. By the time this is all over, Kelly’s potential involvement with the under-aged female will probably seem tame.
• Naomi Campbell was hit with six charges stemming from her April 3 battle with security at London’s Heathrow Airport. The charges cover assaulting a constable, using threatening, abusive words or behavior to the cabin crew and disorderly conduct. At this point, those statements are part of Campbell’s résumé.
