The name Takeshi Shudo probably does not ring any bell for most of us living outside of Japan. But try Pokémon.
Takeshi Shudo, the 61 year old creator of Minky Momo and writer of the most watched animated show Pokémon, collapsed in the smoking area of the Nara railway station in Nara City, Japan at about 6 a.m. on Thursday. A passerby stumbled upon him and he was rushed to Nara Hospital where efforts to save him failed. He was diagnosed to have suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage in his head.
Shudo, born on August 8, 1949, is very popular due to his most important role in the creation of Pokémon and his contribution as the chief writer of Pokémon’s television series from 1997 to 2002 and the first three Pokémon films, and his contribution in the making of the Goshogun and Minky Momo series, and its other extremely popular spinoffs too were a rage with people of all ages.
Shudo has been associated with the most creative episodes in the animated series Pokémon, with the Pikachu character garnering the most votes in terms of popularity with kids and adults alike. The quest of Ash Ketchum and his Pikachu Pokémon has enthralled viewers throughout the world. The Yellow Pocket Monster and his partner became a cultural phenomenon too.

His other contributions like ‘Idol Tenshi Youkoso Yoko’, ‘Martian Successor Nadesico’, ‘Tokusou Kihei Dorvack’ and ‘Legend of the Galactic Heroes’ are some of his most popular works.

Takeshi Shudo is widely admired and his creations have not only entertained audiences all over the world but have left an indelible mark in the heart of everyone who has grown up watching Pokémon. He is undoubtedly a man almost without parallel in the anime world, having delighted millions of children all over the world with his amazing animation series and lovable cartoon characters throughout his life.
The untimely death of this great legend is being mourned the world over. May his soul rest in peace!
Blonde, blue-eyed 18-year-old teenager Miss USA Alexandria Mills was crowned the 60th Miss World 2010 on Saturday evening, defeating more than 100 other hopefuls at a glittering ceremony held at the 2,000-capacity Beauty Crown Theatre in the resort city of Sanya on Hainan Island in southern China.

The 1.75-metre (5’9″) Mills, a professional model listed with the Elite Models agency, looked stunning in her snow white gown with some delicate sequins stitched beautifully which fitted her to a perfect ‘T’. She wowed the crowd and the judges with her winning smile and her confident and witty answers.

Mills, dressed in a crisp white evening gown, was crowned by Kaiane Aldorino of Gibraltar, the title holder of 2009.

Miss Botswana Emma Wareus, dressed in a yellow gown, was named the first runner-up while Miss Venezuela Adriana Vasini was placed third in the pageant.

The pageant kicked off with a performance by dancers and drummers from China’s Li ethnic minority group, who mainly live on Hainan island, which was hosting the event for the fifth time in eight years.
Before the contestants whirled in national costumes for the “Dances of the World” segment, viewers were treated to a video montage of the women’s whirlwind tour of China — from the Great Wall to the shopping malls.
This was followed by the introduction of the contestants from around the globe. The contestants set the stage on fire with an aptly titled act “Dances of the World”.
The glittering evening saw an opera performance, melodious symphony of saxophone and group performances by the contestants.

The jury included former Miss World winners Denise Perrier Lanfranchi (1953), Ann Sidney (1964), Mary Stävin (1977), Agbani Darego (2001) and Maria Julia Mantilla (2004).
During the two-hour competition, which annually draws a global television audience of about one billion, Mills said her month spent touring China with the other 114 Miss World hopefuls had made a “big impact” on her life.
Early favorite Mariann Birkedal of Norway, listed by British bookmaker William Hill as the woman to beat ahead of Mills, finished in the top seven.
A win for Norway could have caused a stir in Beijing, where the government is furious that the Oslo-based Nobel committee awarded this year’s Nobel Peace Prize to jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo.
The outgoing Miss World Kaiane Aldorino, 24, said she had enjoyed her year as Miss World, saying that in all the countries she had visited, one thing had remained the same: “The smile on a child’s face, and that’s what has captured the moment”.
The competition emphasises the importance of charity work.
Miss Kenya Natasha Metto, who has worked on combatting an epidemic of parasitic Jigger fleas in her country — earned a “fast-track” spot in the final group of 25, but was then eliminated. She was awarded the Miss Beauty With A Purpose.

Ireland’s violin-playing Emma Britt Waldron, who won Miss World Talent subsidiary title and finished in the top five, wowed the audience by greeting them in Chinese, while Miss China, Xiao Tang, spoke mostly in English.

David Beckham, despite his sometimes icy behavior, showed off his comic side and famous physique during a prank on The Ellen DeGeneres Show! And he is lauded for his performance and self-control for not bursting out in laughter during the prank.
The 35-year-old recently had some fun at the expense of an unsuspecting masseuse, who had to deal with his diva demands. It is a candid camera sort of prank that had audiences in stitches.
With Ellen feeding him exactly what to say through an earpiece, David went shirtless, told the masseuse to call him “Ricky,” asked her to not use her thumbs, and made her sing during the session — all while a hidden camera was rolling.
This video is hilarious and proves David can be very sporting when it comes to playing the ball fool once in a while.
Almost overnight, a graceful, sweet-faced and trendy 30-year-old elementary school teacher in China has become an internet celebrity, with netizens wildly spreading her photographs and videos. She has created such a huge buzz that she has been dubbed “China’s sexiest female teacher.”

Her name is Zhu Songhua, a third grade language teacher at the No. 1 Primary School in Jiangsu ,Nantong.

What a sweet smile!

In early September, Zhu Songhua made an appearance on Jiangsu Satellite Television’s “Happy Night” program’s “My Teacher Is Special” segment. As soon as she got on stage, she caused a stir, with the audience immediately praising her for her beauty. Even the male host Peng Yu looked smitten by her beauty.
When she was asked on the show about the teaching profession, she replied “There are no bad students, only bad teachers”, adding that that teaching students about love and responsibility is the most important lesson.
What a beauty!
In a playful pose
She said whenever she encounters a naughty child, she would not severely criticize him or her but would “patiently guide and teach”.
Since graduating from Nantong Normal University, Zhu Songhua has been working as a language teacher at this school and has a reputation as an outstanding teacher.
She won first place in the school’s young teachers’ teaching competition and has previously represented the school in teaching competitions, winning the Nantong City Chongchuan District second prize. In addition, she won the first prize in the Nantong City Chongchuan District chalk-writing competition and has also published many articles.

Unlike Ileana Tacconelli, the Italian teacher deemed too sexy by some mothers to be a teacher, parents of Zhu’s students have no qualms about letting their children be taught by Zhu. The parents feel that Zhu’s beauty is actually invigorating. They also know that Zhu is an outstanding teacher. So with Zhu achieving so much fame now, parents are not viewing her in a different light.

She looks like a celebrity
It comes as no surprise that there are people commenting that with a teacher like Zhu, they hope they will never graduate!
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s alleged penchant for prostitutes has landed him into another prostitution scandal after an underage aspiring Moroccan model claimed she had sex with him at his villa in Arcore, near Milan, in return for a “cash gift”.
Italian PM is embroiled in yet another sex scandal...no wonder he is having a major headache!
The 17-year-old, identified only as ’RubyR’, apparently made the allegations when she was questioned in May by investigators in Milan in connection with the theft of cash from a friend’s apartment. Facing deportation, she pleaded with her captors to let her off, telling them she knew the 74-year-old prime minister and that she had been to a number of parties at Berlusconi’s home between last year and this spring.
Ruby R....the underaged Moroccon girl
Ruby R claimed that Emilo Fede, a Berlusconi confidante who is the news director of Berlusconi’s Mediaset’s Channel 4, first accompanied her to Berlusconi’s villa for a February 14 Valentine’s Day party which was attended by about 20 young women and only two men – Fede and Berlusconi. She also revealed that she had visited the conservative premier’s Villa San Martino on two other occasions. She reportedly admitted she had lied about being over 18.
Emilio Fede, while acknowledging that he had met Ruby a few times at Berlusconi’s villa, denied that he had introduced Ruby to the 74-year-old Berlusconi.
Emilio Fede is now under investigation on charges of procuring prostitutes.
Prostitution is not illegal in Italy – as long as it is not organised and the sex worker is over 18 years old.
Because of her age, the allegations have been described in the Italian press as a potential “sex scandal” and have drawn comparisons with the case of Patrizia D’Addario, the callgirl who claimed last year she had slept with Berlusconi at another of his villas in Rome, and Noemi Letizia, the underwear model whose 18th birthday Berlusconi attended.
But the prime minister’s lawyers said in a statement that the reports of “alleged statements made by ‘Ruby’ in relation to events at the home of Berlusconi are completely unfounded”.
Berlusconi is not under investigation and magistrates are wary of Ruby’s claims. They say her claims have been contradictory at times and warn that they could be an attempt at promotion from a woman wanting to break into modelling.
The Italian premier responded to the reports by saying that they were “media trash.”
Asked about the investigation Thursday during a press conference about the garbage crisis in Naples, Berlusconi quipped: “I’m here to talk about real trash. Media trash I leave to you.”
The media-magnate-turned-politician has been embroiled in a series of sex scandals – including one in May 2009 when his wife, Veronica Lario, announced her intention to divorce after reports that Berlusconi had attended the birthday party of Noemi Letizia, an 18-year-old lingerie model. Lario also accused her husband of ‘frequenting’ underage women, a charge the premier denied.
Noemi Letizia the lingerie model
And in June 2009, a self-described escort, Patrizia D’Addario, alleged she spent the night with Berlusconi at his residence in Rome. D’Addario later published a book, in which she revealed details about the time she spent with the Italian PM and praised him for his sexual stamina, saying that he “deserved a place in the Guinness Book of Records”.
After the D’Addario scandal, Berlusconi got involved in another sex scandal, this time for sharing bed with 3 girls. 38-year-old Maria Teresa de Nicolo, who worked as a prostitute told prosecutors that Berlusconi has given her presents after she shared a bed with him and two other women.

De Nicolo is one of the numerous women who have claimed they have been paid by a businessman to attended dinners at the Italian PM’s private residence in Rome in the period of 2008-2009. She has also stated that she received EUR 1 000 from the Italian businessman Gianpaolo Tarantini, who is under investigation for alleged corruption in the health service in the south-eastern region of Puglia.

Berlusconi has said he is ‘no saint,’ but denied ever paying for sex. Huh?
Meet Eddy and Nelson! And I am not referring to Eddy Murphy and Nelson Mandela.
After going a little bit crazy trying to decide over the past week, Céline Dion and her husband, René Angélil, have finally named their twin sons. Celine’s initial desire was for French names and her eldest son, René-Charles, pushing for American monikers. But Celine Dion and husband have named their newborn twin boys Nelson and Eddy Angelil!
Celine Dion's A Miracle Of Life...the babies are NOT her twins
The name “Eddy” comes from the late Eddy Marnay, who produced the singer’s first five records. “He was like a father to her,” says Dion’s rep. “Eddy is a major influence in both Céline and René’s lives.”
Nelson is named after Nelson Mandela, whom Dion met two years ago while kicking off her world tour in South Africa. “René said that in just the few minutes they were able to spend with him, they were impressed by the human being he is,” says the rep.
The singer, 42, gave birth to the fraternal twins on October 23 at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Fla., marking the end of a long struggle with in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments as she strived to expand her family with husband Rene Angelil. On Wednesday, the newly expanded family headed home with three of Dion’s sisters and her mom to help out.
A representative for the couple said, “Marnay was like a father to her. Eddy is a major influence in both Celine and Rene’s lives.” The couple chose the name Nelson after an influential meeting with the former leader in South Africa two years ago.
The rep adds, “Rene said that in just the few minutes they were able to spend with him, they were impressed by the human being he is. Celine and Rene want their children to be inspired by their names, because they were so inspired by these men.”
“We have tried five times since March 2009 to conceive. It’s very hard,” Rene said of their well-known struggle to conceive. Dion, 42, even suffered a miscarriage in 2009.
“So when Saturday at 11:11 came, and they showed us the first baby that was crying, we were crying,” he confessed.
“It was a very emotional moment,” he continued, “and even though we didn’t speak to each other, we were both thinking about the time it took. We are very lucky, very privileged and very fortunate to have these boys.”
What do the little boys look like so far? “They do look alike,” Angelil said. “But maybe they won’t look alike in a few months — because they are not identical twins.”
The little boys also have an ecstatic older brother in their son Rene-Charles, 9. “He was very, very happy that it was boys,” Angelil said. “I remember a few months ago when his mom told him the day we would find out the sex of the baby, his reaction pointing to his mom’s belly was ‘I hope there’s not too many girls in there.’ ”
Celine during her pregnancy
Dion is expected to begin rehearsing for her new Las Vegas show in mid-January. “It gives her three months to recoup, and she thinks she can do it,” Angelil said.
Fans of Celine Dion are no doubt eagerly awaiting to see photos of her twins soon. Will Celine Dion oblige?
A radio advertisement for British lingerie retailer Ann Summers’ Halloween costumes has been banned for being too sexy!
The commercial begins with a soundtrack of frightened screams that lead into screams of sexual pleasure. A woman coos: “Tight. Short. Low-cut. Ann Summers dead sexy Halloween outfits now with Ł5 off. In stores, online and at parties.”
Ann Summers' Devil Costume and Voodoo Dress
The Radio Advertising Clearance Centre (RACC), which regulates ads before they are broadcast, banned this commercial, saying that the steamy ad breached regulations governing taste and offense.
“The ad contains fairly overt sexual references in terms of sound effects,” a spokesman for RACC said. “We believed that it was too strong for broadcast on commercial radio, notwithstanding timing conditions.”
“Our latest, and most saucy, advert for Hallowe’en has been banned by the Radio Advertising Clearance Centre – for being ‘too sexy’, even for advertising post-watershed,” a spokesperson for Ann Summers as saying.
“We were happy to accept a watershed slot for the advert, however this was not accepted by the RACC.
“The response from the RACC has made us question – what is too sexy?”
“We believe that Britons are broad-minded and would understand the topical and cheeky nature of our advert.”
The spokesperson added that the company tries to deliver its message in a “playful and tongue-in-cheek way, never taking the brand, or ourselves, too seriously.”
Ann Summers store
Jacqueline Gold, chief executive of Ann Summers, said the company has appealed the ban, saying that more risqué ads have been approved.
“We are proud of our brand that always sparks debate and we hope this gets people talking about sex in a positive way,” she added.
Hey, it worked for Herbal Essences and Meg Ryan! Remember Clairol’s Herbal Essences’ “The Totally Organic Experience” ad? Playing off a hilarious and sexy scene from the film When Harry Met Sally, the ad portrayed shampooing as a nice yet naughty pleasure. The ad was lighthearted and playful, with a youthful sensuality. And it created quite a buzz. Watch the ad below:
Meanwhile, Australia’s Advertising Standards Bureau has banned a Calvin Klein X Jeans ad on the grounds that it suggests rape.
The ad, featuring supermodel Lara Stone and three men in various states of undress, had received more than 50 complaints as well as criticism from women’s advocates who claimed it promoted gang rape and violence.
The banned ad featuring Lara Stone
Criticizing the campaign “highly sexualized and clearly suggestive of sexual behavior,” the group has reportedly ordered the removal of three Calvin Klein billboards.
“The Board considered that whilst the act depicted could be consensual, the overall impact and most likely takeout is that the scene is suggestive of violence and rape,” the case report said.
“The Board considered that the image was demeaning to women by suggesting that she is a plaything of these men.
“It also demeans men by implying sexualized violence against women.”
Clinical psychologist and sex abuse worker Alison Grundy said that the ad was “clearly intimating” gang rape.
“If we continue to subject future generations of young men to great barrages of aggressive, misogynist, oversexualized, and violent imagery in pornography, movies, computer games, and advertising, we will continue to see the rates of sexual violence against women and children that continue unabated today. Or worse,” she told the paper.
Calvin Klein is no stranger to censorship having produced numerous controversial and provocative ads over the years. Most recent culprits include an ad depicting a female model in a passionate clinch with three males, as well as a TV spot that was deemed too racy for American audiences.
Another controversial Calvin Klein ad
Someone has commented that he has come across rotting bodies that are less offensive than these Calvin Klein ads. To him, Calvin Klein ads are the pioneer of a new trend called “Advertising Whose Sole Purpose Is To Offend You.”
Others feel that Calvin Klein ads are bold, creative and artistic. To them, the list of sins committed by Calvin Klein ads is limited only by the creativity of its critics.
H.G. Wells said that advertising is legalized lying. However far your travels take you, you will never find the girl who smiles at you from the travel brochure.
Debrahlee Lorenzana is sizzling hot. At five-foot-six and 125 pounds, with soft eyes and flawless bronze skin, she is a head-turning beauty. And too sexy to be a banker!
A very hot and sexy Debrahlee Lorenzana
She is one heck of a lady, one who does not take any form of discrimination lying down. When Citibank fired her as a banker in the summer of 2009 citing her work performance, she got even hotter. Like a female David taking on Goliath, she sued Citigroup, claiming that she was fired solely because her bosses thought she was too hot and sexy.
Her bosses told her they couldn’t concentrate on their work because her appearance was too distracting. I don’t know what they actually mean but I suspect it must have something to do with their “one-eyed trouser snakes” getting too hard for their comfort. Debrahlee Lorenzana is like a snake charmer…she makes her male colleagues’ one-eye snakes stand up throbbing! They ordered her to stop wearing turtlenecks, pencil skirts, three-inch heels, or fitted business suits. Lorenzana, a 33-year-old single mom, pointed out female colleagues whose clothing was far more revealing than hers.
Debrahlee Lorenzana is like a snake charmer...she makes her male colleagues' one-eye snakes stand up throbbing!
“They said their body shapes were different from mine, and I drew too much attention,” she says.
“Men are kind of drawn to her,” says Tanisha Ritter, a friend and former colleague who also works as a banker and praises Lorenzana’s work habits. “I’ve seen men turn into complete idiots around her. But it’s not her fault that they act this way, and it shouldn’t be her problem.”
Jack Tuckner, Debrahlee Lorenzana’s attorney, has this to say:”It’s like saying that we can’t think anymore ’cause our penises are standing up—and we cannot think about you except in a sexual manner—and we can’t look at you without wanting to have sexual intercourse with you. And it’s up to you, gorgeous woman, to lessen your appeal so that we can focus!”
Debrahlee Lorenzana creates havoc for her male colleagues
This isn’t your typical sexual-harassment lawsuit. Sexual-harassment suits more often than not involve claim that women are coerced into looking sexier or are subjected to being pawed. Lorenzana claimed that her bosses told her she was just too attractive. When she raised hell and refused to do anything about it, she lost her job.
Debbie Lorenzana—whose mother is Puerto Rican and father is Italian—came to New York from Puerto Rico 12 years ago. She was 21 and pregnant, and had a degree as an emergency medical technician from a technical college in Manatí, a small city on the northern coast. The father, she says, didn’t want to have anything to do with her or the baby. So she moved back to the States, where she had lived in her mid-teens (pinballing between relatives’ houses and group homes), and took care of her elderly grandparents in Connecticut. After her son was born, she moved to Queens to stay with a friend.
She got her first job in finance: working as a sales representative at the Municipal Credit Union in 2002. She moved to Jersey City, worked long hours and was considered a successful rep.
She moved on to other jobs in the financial-services industry. After a stint selling health insurance to immigrants at Metropolitan Hospital in Queens, the hospital cited her in November 2003 for “providing world-class customer service” and for being the number one enroller in the office.
In August 2006, the district managers at Bank of America gave her a Customer Higher Standards Award on diploma paper, on which they wrote: “Debrahlee: You deserve to be recognized for going above and beyond.”
She is without doubt a very capable lady, one destined for success!
In September 2008, she got a job as a business banker with Citibank at its recently opened branch in the Chrysler Building. For the first two months, she was hardly in the office—she was either out drumming up business or attending training sessions. But once she started spending more time in the office, things began to go downhill.
Citibank does have a dress-code policy, which says clothing must not be provocative, but does not go into specifics, and managers have wide discretion. But Lorenzana pointed out that some of the tellers dressed in miniskirts and low-cut blouses. “And when they bend down,” Lorenzana said, “anyone can see what God gave them!”
Then the managers gave her a list of clothing items she would not be allowed to wear: turtlenecks, pencil skirts, fitted suits and three-inch heels. Because of her tall stature, coupled with her curvaceous figure, she should not wear classic high-heeled business shoes, as this purportedly drew attention to her body in a manner that was so distracting to her male managers.
Stunning Debrahlee Lorenzana
She was transferred to a Citibank branch at Rockefeller Center after she had sent a series of emails to Human Resources and two regional vice-presidents to voice her grievances.
In August 2009, her manager at the Rockefeller Center branch—a woman—fired her. The female manager mentioned the problems related to her clothing at the previous branch. She did not mention work performance. The manager said she was sorry, but Lorenzana wasn’t fit for the culture of Citibank.
Because Citibank made Lorenzana sign a mandatory-arbitration clause as a condition of her employment, the case will never end up before a jury or judge. An arbitrator will decide on her case, her Los Angeles-based attorney Gloria Allred said.
Debrahlee Lorenzana and her lawyer Gloria Allred
Now Debrahlee is again facing the prospect of being fired again. Claiming she’s tarnishing the financial industry’s reputation, her current employer, JPMorgan Chase, now threatens to fire her if she continues to speak to the press about her Citibank lawsuit.
The manager said she had violated an employee code of conduct that prohibits employees from bashing the financial industry as a whole. They gave her a copy of the code of conduct in writing.
“They said I was damaging the reputation of the entire industry,” Lorenzana said.
Here’s the code of conduct she’s talking about: “The concept of relating to JPMorgan Chase businesses is broadly defined and generally includes anything related to the financial services industry, the firm itself, and its businesses.”
“She’s making this industry look bad when we have Goldman Sachs selling exotic derivatives and cheating their clients behind their backs?” attorney Jack Tuckner says. “These are the ‘banksters’ of the world. Why they are so tone deaf is really unfathomable.”
Under city law, it is illegal to fire someone who has spoken up about an illegal practice.
Lorenzana, for her part, says she is walking on eggshells, but will continue to show up to work until she is fired. “I will report to work every single day, until they say, you’re fired.”
22-year-old smoking-hot porn star Christina Walsh – aka Capri Anderson – hit headlines after being locked in the closet while bad-boy actor Charlie Sheen went on a coke-fueled wild rampage, trashing his room at Plaza Hotel on Fifth Avenue early Tuesday morning.
Christina Walsh aka Capri Anderson
Walsh, frightened out of her wits by Sheen’s frenzy, called Plaza security because she felt “threatened” after he accused her of stealing an expensive watch from his multimillion dollar collection. The missing watch was what made Sheen go ballistic.
She was found naked and screaming inside a locked closet in the Two And A Half Men star’s hotel room, fearing for her life.
Sheen, 45, has a long-standing penchant for cocaine, porn stars and prostitutes, having dated blue-movie legend Ginger Lynn and spent big bucks on escorts from the stable of Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss.
He hit it off with Anderson, who met Sheen for the first time Monday in The Plaza’s bar and then agreed to join him and a group of other men and women at the nearby restaurant Daniel just hours before Sheen’s rampage.
Denise Richards, Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, who was in New York to promote her new role on the show “Blue Mountain State,” had joined the group for dinner — but left before even finishing her appetizer when her intoxicated ex began acting out.
Richards, who has two daughters Sam, six, and Lola, five, with Sheen, was disgusted by her former spouse’s antics with the actress, and decided to leave shortly after arriving.
Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards and their two daughters
Charlie was rowdy from the beginning like he had been drinking prior and was stumbling and being very frisky and touchy-feely. Charlie and Walsh excused themselves to the bathroom together, for a long time. It does not require much imagination to guess what went on in that bathroom.
Sheen later invited Walsh back to his suite, where things quickly got ugly.
Cops responded after Plaza security phoned 911 at 1:33 a.m. Tuesday and reported a dispute in Room 1831.
When officers got there, they found Sheen naked and intoxicated and Anderson nude and cowering in the bathroom, where she had taken refuge when the actor allegedly became irate, started turning over tables, throwing chairs and smashing a chandelier.
Sheen admitted having drunk booze and done cocaine that night and told cops he “wigged out” because his wallet and cellphone had gone missing.
Walsh said she did not steal Charlie’s watch. No charges were filed against her.
Sheen, who also was not charged, agreed to be taken to New York Presbyterian Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation after police told him to go to hospital or risk arrest. Richards rode in the ambulance with him.
He checked out hours later, and texted RadarOnline afterward, “Oh my man, I’m fine. The story is totally overblown and overplayed as far as the reality of the scenario.”
Sheen agreed to compensate The Plaza for damage he caused, estimated at more than $7,000.
NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said no complaints had been made and there was no arrest. Sheen is not expected to face criminal charges.
Sheen returned to Los Angeles on a private jet last night and has allegedly checked back into a rehab clinic in the wake of the hotel drama. He is nearing the end of probation imposed on him after he pleaded guilty to attacking his third wife Brooke Mueller during a Christmas Day row.
Walsh, whose X-Rated film credits include Big Bust Cougars, angrily denied assertions by law-enforcement sources that she’s a hooker, insisting she is an actress. She has starred in a hoard of X-rated videos.
Red-hot Christina Walsh aka Capri Anderson
In a mini biography on porn site ‘Twistys’ admits her “eyes, lips and ass” are her best qualities and that she gets turned on by “girls, classy porn and sexy boys”.
And when it comes to her ultimate goal in life she boasts: “Make money!”
She goes on to reveal the craziest place she ever had sex was in a tree and that her sexual fantasy is to have “sex on a swing”.
Surprisingly, however, when asked about her obsession, she responds: “Love.”
The petite, naturally-endowed porn princess, who also operates under aliases including Capri Anderson, Alexis Capri and Stella Costanza, has appeared in such video gems as “Virgins of the Screen 6,” “Cable Guy Sex” and “Filthy’s First Taste 7.”
22-year-old smoking-hot porn star Christina Walsh
Her two pay Web sites — Club Capri Anderson and Club Alexis Walsh — quickly linked to the TMZ report outing her role in Sheen’s rampage, in a clear effort to profit from her newfound fame.
Asked which sex she’s interested in, she lists: “Women.”
“I’m adventurous, unpredictable, and wild! So I’m in the right business… I LOVE to get naked!”
There’s been a buzz lately about a time traveler caught on film in the background of Charlie Chaplin’s 1928 film “The Circus.” That is really weird, because cell phones totally didn’t exist in 1928.
Filmmaker George Clarkeof purchased a DVD set of Charlie Chaplin film. While watching some extras from Charlie Chaplin’s ‘The Circus’, he noticed in a footage shot in front of a theater during the premier of ‘The Circus,’ shows what appears to be a woman, or a man walking down the sidewalk with a dark hat holding their cupped left hand to her/his left ear and talking as she/he walked through a scene. Watch the video below:
It sure looks like someone holding a phone up to their ear and talking into it, doesn't it?
