Today’s Washington Post featured the article above about how news of sex scandals travels fast. They wrote specifically about politicians (y’know, easy post-Spitzer page filler) but it’s applicable to celebs as well.
Then, this morning, we woke up to the news that a 31-minute phone call from Chris Rock to uber-P.I. Anthony Pellicano was leaked to the Huffington Post:
CR: Rape is just ****ing, buzz, you know?… Once your accused of rape, you’re just ****ED, you know?
AP: That’s why i want to blacken this girl up, totally. I want to make her out to be a lying, scumbag, manipulative ****sucker… Stupid bitch.
CR: I’m ****ed. I’m better getting caught with needles in my arm. WAY better. Needles, with pictures, there’s Chris Rock shooting heroin. Much better blow to the career.
Yes, news of sex scandals travels fast indeed.
