I’ve already reached my laugh-out-loud quota for the NEW YORK POST this week thanks to this lame-o PAGE SIX note about Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian:
(NYP report on Bush and Kim K.? Asinine, obviously.)
THE economy doesn’t seem to have taken a toll on Kim Kardashian’s bottom line. The amply rumped reality-show star (above) recently joined her boyfriend, New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush, at Liv in Miami’s Fontainebleau Hotel, where we hear Kim showered clubgoers with $3,000 in singles. Also in attendance were her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney.
Why is it lame? Because I know the real truth on what actually happened. Read more…
Sure, I’ve read over and over again about how bad the economy is. I know that people are losing their jobs, businesses are shutting down and people are hurting. But this story in the LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL really brings it home: apparently, things are so bad that millionaire athletes can’t afford to “make it rain” at Las Vegas nightclubs. Damn it, we’re bailing out Detroit, why can’t we bail out Las Vegas?
Branden Powers, a partner and director of marketing at Poetry nightclub at the Forum Shops at Caesers, saying that Vegas is “drying up” in terms of big money spenders coming to exclusive nightclubs. He estimated that business was off by 25 to 40 percent in December, and the practice of big shot athletes “making it rain” by tossing wads of hundred dollar bills into the crowd is almost non-existent:
Since losing/removing “Inside The NFL” from their schedule, HBO has been looking for more football-centered programming for their pay channel. And last night was the season premiere of “Hard Knocks“, the candid, in-depth, behind the scenes, too hot for TV pigskin series - sort of like “Playmakers“, if it was properly censored & approved by the NFL.
(We know one thing about Adam - he’s got a lot of balls)
Although we didn’t catch the premiere (there was some QB trade going on), FANSIDED does pass along a clip from the show, featuring everyone’s favorite calamitous cornerback, Adam “Don’t Call Me Pacman” Jones.
In this week’s installment, Adam is up to his old tricks again, making it rain on teammate Felix Jones’ head. But when we say “making it rain”, we really mean it.
