You might not know the name Blake Griffin yet, but you will soon. And hopefully it will be because of his basketball ability and not because more photos like this end up on the internet:
Griffin, a 6-10, 251 lb. sophomore at Oklahoma, is putting up huge numbers through his first six games this season, averaging (yes, averaging) 25.7 points and 19.2 rebounds per game. NBADRAFT.NET predicts he’ll be the #1 pick in the 2009 (a glimmer of hope, Thunder fans). And he apparently likes to prance around in fields wearing women’s clothing. Dude’s got it all.
It’s not hard to tell that Milana Dravnel and her lawyer are more interested in winning the battle of publicity and public opinion than they are in doing anything within the actual halls of justice. That big press event on Friday regarding Oscar De La Hoya and the now infamous pictures in drag? All for show. But a good show it was.
Dravnel, looks, oh, pretty good right there. I’d dare say 40 percent of men would dress up in fishnets on her behalf.
But would they hurt her emotionally like De La Hoya did? Uh-oh. Let’s let the NEW YORK TIMES tell the story in a way only they could. Read more…
Remember all those lovely photos of Oscar De La Hoya in drag? Remember how the model-slash-stripper who took the pics sued the boxer for making her sign an agreement that “undervalued the photos to prospective buyers“?
Well, they’re getting back together - in court. The NEW YORK POST’S PAGE SIX develops news of Milana Dravnel and De La Hoya facing off in the halls of justice today. The meet-up is to resolve the lawsuit filed by the Siberian stripper shutterbug. And her lawyer has already thrown the first punch.
THIS REALLY ISN’T BREAKING NEWS TO YANKEES, NL FANS: The NEW YORK DAILY NEWS has breaking news that we thought Christine Daniels surely would’ve had first: The Mets media guide is wrong!
Turns out Mets pitcher John Maine isn’t just a right-handed batter, but more likely a switch-hitter.NYDN Excerpt: “At the opening of Touch nightclub Thursday night, Mets pitcher John Maine followed an attractive young woman into the ladies’ bathroom. He even went into the stall with her, but she wasn’t prepared for what came next.”
The NYDN then relays that Maine “asked her if he could try on the little black dress she was wearing.“ Sadly, the woman declined, probably after seeing the paltry price that the De La Hoya photos were sold for.
If you’re from New York, we apologize for posting this story as breaking news, since we know you’ve all known this for some time - along with the rest of the National League.
APPARENTLY DLH DIDN’T LIKE THE SHADE OF HIS LIP GLOSS Pity Oscar De La Hoya. The NEW YORK POST report that Milana Dravnel, the woman who took the photos of him in drag (wait, they were fake!), is now suing De La Hoya, claiming that he coerced her into signing an agreement that undervalued the photos to prospective buyers.
It’s clear that the hooker who shot the photos has found in the past couple months, since she sold the precious pics to X17Online, that no one is going to give her a legitimate modeling gig or reality show.
But we’re guessing that much more importantly her Scores Champagne Room gratuities have dried up since all now know that she’s a rat. Shame.
WOMAN BEHIND OSCAR PICS REVEALED; CLAIMS NO SEX!: Thanks to England’s NEWS OF THE WORLD, we now have the name of the woman responsible for the Oscar De la Hoya cross-dressing photos: Milana Dravnel.
The Russian topless dancer who now claims to be a model, tells the UK tabloid that she met De la Hoya at a strip club in New York last year (Scores) and that “She and three of her pals met him in a series of hotels, on his PRIVATE JET and at his Palm Springs HOME.”
She revealed a few of De la Hoya’s fetishes, which included: “He once asked all the girls to dress as men so he could play the role of the only woman in the group. The dad-of-four then sat on a chair behind one of them and pretended it was a MOTORBIKE.“Milana laughs: “He was acting like a girl on the back, grabbing her round the waist screaming ‘Faster! Faster!’.”
Is there anything more unbelievable than that? Actually yes. Dravnel claims that the two never had sex.
Meanwhile, the NEW YORK POST reports De La Hoya pal Mario Lopez said the boxer was “laughing it all off.” Lopez: “He wasn’t upset. He was sort of laughing … He’s really not sweating it.”
If that’s true, why did De la Hoya’s reps rush out a memo to the media last week that the photos were fake?
UPDATE: Dravnel is now backtracking on the photos, sort of.
