If anyone is still following the blind items, CDAN has posted a lengthy one from Himmmm that's obviously about Hugh Hefner.

Apparently, the guy was sitting on the motherlode of fappening material. Sex tapes. Nude photographs. Recordings of Playboy Mansion shenanigans. All unseen by the general public.

Not exactly going out on a limb with that info.
Who didnít already think that Hef was recording everything?

If that Playboy Mansion stuff was consensual, I hope it stays buried, as it'll just distract form the actual harassment issues.

Much like Cinderella, he was hoping for an invitation to the Royal Balls.

One of the items in that involves a business man/sports owner.
He figures in two instances with the second being a video of him being penetrated by his spouse who is wearing a strap on.

It's Ted Turner and Jane Fonda and the first time I read about this video was in a book called Prisoner of X, which was IIRC a memoir from a former editor for Hustler. He mentioned this blithely as pretty much an aside when Flynt came into possession of the tape originally.

Not at all shocking, although fairly big since Mario is one of the original celeb chefs. I've read a few books by chefs who knew him well back in the day. Seems like this was a common thing (a long with A LOT of coke).

Yeah, I remember Mario being one of the first major Food Network talents along with Emeril, Bobby Flay, and Alton Brown.

I wonder if this will result of alienation of women in the workplace. For instance, does an executive want to reconsider hiring a female assistant if it could someday result in attraction or "shared feelings"? I wonder if there is a backlash looming.

He's not sexist, just allegedly racist and homophobic.

On whom?


Oh great, now I have harassed Guy Fieri. Or did I harass Dex? I canít keep up anymore ... I may have harassed Natalie Portman since she has a few of the same letters in her name. Or maybe the two ďoĒs I my post look like balls, in which case I was probably harassed by Kevin Spacey. Iím so confused ...

This doesn’t make me feel comfortable,” she recalled telling the producer. “And that was respected. But that was super-not okay, you know? That was really unacceptable and manipulative and could have been — I was scared, you know?”
Going out on a limb here ... not harassment.

Were there no seats? It was just a flying bed?

Unless you live in Los Angeles, you've probably never heard of him, but long-time LA TV personality Steve Edwards was fired today from the local FOX affiliate here. Sexual harassment allegations were made against him.

He's been an LA TV personality for close to 40 years. This is shocking.

I just figured all Phoenix news personalities are banging each other. Like waiters and waitresses. Lots of them are way too friendly and flirty on screen.

Wow. Usually, with local news personalities, they used to just leave the station without explanation. Sometimes things would leak.

Yeah, wow, been familiar with Steve Edwards since the early '80s. He was mostly just such a boring vanilla dude, a relateable "every man". But nothing surprises me at this point.

I think that's part of what's kept this stuff from hurting trump, is that no one was actually surprised by it from him. We're harshest against people who go against the portrait we have of them. As long as they play into the "character" they've always been, they'll usually be forgiven, within reason. Which is why the same action from two different people results in two completely different public reactions depending on the person.

Maybe the lesson is that America's "every man" is trying to get his dick wet.

Well, to probably no one's surprise, it's now hit the sports world.

Several employees from NFL Network suspended for sexual harassment. Some former employees named in lawsuit as well.

I use to see Edwards featured on various clips that aired on The Soup (McHale) years ago.

I use to watch the show back when it was him w/ Jillian and Dorothy, but stopped watching many many years ago (I didn't even know that both of them had been left ago, until I randomly turned it on years ago. and new females were on w Steve) Anyway me and my friend remember him doing some touching on PAM ANDERSON many moon ago on air. We've mentioned it many times in conversations since it happen and now this.

Itís about as big a bombshell as finding out Ron Burgundy sexually harassed someone.
