2 More Women Claim Al Gore Is A “Crazed Sex Poodle”

Police are investigating charges from two more women who claim they were sexually assaulted by former Vice President Al Gore, The National Enquirer reports. Last month the bombshell dropped that Gore allegedly assaulted Portland, Oregon, massage therapist Molly Hagerty in his upscale hotel room in 2006. Now the Enquirer claims two more massage therapists fended off advances from the big cheese. One source alleges Gore hired a masseuse at a Beverly Hills luxury hotel in 2007 when he was in town for the Academy Awards, removed his towel, revealing his naked body and erect penis, and told her, “Take care of this!” (Oh, the imagery!) The other incident allegedly took place at a hotel in Tokyo one year later, although no further details are provided. Keep reading »

Sarah Palin “Refudiates” To Accept Bristol’s Wedding Plans

Sarah Palin is far less than thrilled about the reunion/engagement of Bristol and Levi. In fact, she is boycotting the wedding, should it ever actually happen. This seems strange considering that the Christian thing for Levi to do is to make a wifey out of Bristol, since they already made a baby together. I wonder if Sarah will change her tune when she finds out there may be a reality show involved? Todd, on the other hand, is down for the festivities and will be walking Bristol down the aisle. The couple is hoping that he’ll convince Sarah to show up. Maybe she’ll come if they make their reception a big, family moose hunt? [Newser, PopEater] Keep reading »
