Reality TV Housewife Too Drunk to Fly

Kim Richards, one of the stars of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was confronted by police at San Francisco airport and escorted out of the airport after being deemed too drunk to fly. The whole embarrassing incident was captured on video which was obtained by gossip blog TMZ. In the video the 46-year-old former child star is heard slurring her speech and popping pills. At one point she even plays the "don’t you know who I am" card. Police then asked her, “Have you had anything to drink today ... [the staff] is kind of concerned about your sobriety.” Richards replied she’d had “one cocktail.” The reality television star finally left the airport without incident, but probably suffered a severe hangover.

Apparently it’s Okay for Women to Cheat, if it’s with Another Woman

The male lesbian fantasy continues to thrive. According to a new study the majority of men don’t consider it cheating if their girlfriend or wife has an affair with another woman. Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin surveyed 718 college students and asked them “to imagine being in a long-term relationship and what their reactions would be to several different cheating scenarios.” The results show that half of men would forgive their partner if they cheated on them with a woman. Unsurprisingly, the women in the study did not share the same attitude when it came to their man cheating on them with another man. [NY Post]

In some of the more insane news to hit the Internet this week, a woman has apparently filed a $1 trillion lawsuit against Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, alleging that he caused 9/11, landed her kid in the hospital, and stole a poker chip supposedly worth "100 zillions of dollars." Turks is also claiming that she once dated Combs and even have a son together. According to the April Fools-like reports, Valerie Joyce Wilson Turks is seeking $900 billion dollars in child support and $100 billion dollars for "loss of income." The court papers obtained by RadarOnline state: "[Diddy] went through Kim Porter and Rodney King and knocked down the WTC and then they all came and knocked my children down. Set me up to be on disability and disabled my baby. he put my baby in a wheelchair…" Um, wow. [Huffington Post]

NBA Star Doesn’t Want Alimony to Get in the Way of his Shark Tank Upkeep

Every man on the planet going through a divorce knows that the financial implications can be rather trying. Even Gilbert Arenas, a multimillionaire, feels the normal financial constraints of a split. The Washington Post reports “[Laura] Govan -- who is expecting her fourth child with Arenas -- describes fights where he repeatedly threw her out of the house, his profligate spending (including a shark tank/pool/grotto complex said to cost $1 million), lavish vacations, and spending sprees at toy stores.” I don’t recall her complaining about the sharks when times were good.

10,000 Strippers Flown in to Facilitate Customer Demands at Super Bowl

Naturally, Super Bowl fans want to watch college students play their way though a socially degree by getting naked. Fortunately, the city of Dallas is ensuring a proper solution to the supply and demand problem of previous years. A skeezy strip club owner told Fox 4 “he is not the only understaffed exotic club in the area. DFW's 60 or so adult establishments are short a total of 10,000 exotic dancers. Arlington city officials said they expect to host 300,000 visitors during Super Bowl weekend, which puts the tourist-to-stripper ratio at about a hearty 30:1.” [My Fox]
