“I did it as a joke, for some friends at first. But a guy in the bar we were in spotted me and hired me for the next day. I was so bad, I did it to ‘Leave Your Hat On’, and I had to get my mother and sister to cheer me on.”
– Javier Bardem confesses that before he was an Oscar-winning actor (he’s also nominated again this year for “Biutiful”), husband to Penelope Cruz, and father to their newborn baby, he was a stripper. I would really, really appreciate some video evidence of his act being unearthed and posted to YouTube. This could do more to resurrect Tom Jones’ career than “The Full Monty.” [Bumpshack] Keep reading »
I don’t watch “Maury,” so I missed this remarkable video when it aired, but if you can work the pole better than Lil’ Mama, aka Amber, who likely has one less leg than you, seeing as she only has one, and you probably have two, I’d like to see it. According to the accompanying story, Amber was on the show to meet up with an old flame, her high school sweetheart, and she wanted to show him how she could work it, work it as a dancer. I don’t know how that romantic reunion panned out, but TV Squad reports, “she didn’t let her prosthetic leg get in the way of her hot body action.” You go, girl! [TV Squad] Keep reading »
Earlier this month, the Admiral Theater in Chicago hosted a contest to decide who is the best stripper version of Sarah Palin
— and there was more hooting and hollering than at a Tea Party Rally! Stars and stripes and baby oil forever! [Dangerous Minds

Oh Martha. Martha, Martha, Martha. We didn’t know you had it in you. The prim and proper talk show hostess with the mostess invited S Factor striptease instructor, Sheila Kelley, on her show yesterday and had the nerve to take to the
poll pole [Sorry folks. Early morning. Sigh. -- Editor] herself. There’s video after the jump, but I just adore the joyful look on Martha’s face in this photo. Keep reading »
Ladies and gentlemen, we gather here today to remember our dear friend pole dancing.
Beloved by frat boys, horny old men, and starlets in desperate need of attention, pole dancing may have enjoyed decades more of life had not Miley Cyrus pole-danced at the Teen Choice Awards last night. Keep reading »
There’s a reason men are not allowed to touch strippers. Florida resident Michael Ireland was promptly (and rightfully) kicked in the head after forcefully slapping the butt of stripper Sakeena Shageer, aka “Suki,” at Cheetah nightclub in West Palm Beach last September. Ireland is now suing the club—he says the kick broke some bones and gave him permanent double vision, though the Cheetah’s owner denies that “little Suki” could have done that much damage. Hey, at least with his vision, Ireland’s next strip club visit will be a 2-for-1 show.
Strip clubs get sued all the time and often for equally wonky reasons. After the jump, some other ridiculous XXX lawsuits. And yes, many of them involve lucite heels. Keep reading »
“So let me get this straight? You’ve been a stripper for the past eight years and you’ve never slept with anyone during that entire time?” Blair, my co-worker at the strip club, asked.
“I know, it sounds really weird,” I said. “I just haven’t. Maybe its guilt from my Italian Catholic upbringing.”
“Kiersten, how is that possible? Come on, that can’t be true,” Blair replied. Keep reading »
Stripper turned Academy Award-winning “Juno” screenwriter Diablo Cody has returned to ranting on her MySpace page, and this one’s a doozy. After she climbed out of Midwestern obscurity to win an Oscar, work with Spielberg, and garner the attention of the international media, the former blogger found herself a target for those who didn’t appreciate her writing abilities, her pole dancing skills, or her ascent to the top of the Hollywood pile.
