Stiletto Attack, Stripper-Style

When 52-year-old Jo Ellen Nolan lost her job this year, she jumped right up and landed a new one—as an exotic dancer. I think that’s fantastic; I’m much younger than her, and I don’t consider my legs eligible for that kind of backup plan. Jo Ellen expected that the younger strippers at the club would treat her like a mama bear, but when she met 22-year-old Chetania Davis, who goes by the stage name “Beautiful,” she shouted at Jo Ellen, “Just what I need, another new bitch.” Beautiful then launched herself at Jo Ellen in the dressing room, stabbing her in the head with the heel of a stiletto. Beautiful went AWOL, like the stripper who tasered a cocktail waitress, but was later arrested. Jo Ellen had to get seven staples to treat the cuts on her forehead. Beautiful plead guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor assault charge and was sentenced to a year of probation and a six-month suspended sentence. Jo Ellen, her dancing career over, has registered with a temp agency. There is no word on what happened to the other shoe. [AP]
