Morning Coffee 5.2.08

Attention Beyonce, Mariah, Paulina, Shakira and the rest of ya’ll. Ms. Turner is back on the road, and at age 68–she taking no shorts, especially in the body dept. Ladies, take notes and learn. And she didn’t even have to make a sex tape. {People}

Deborah Jeane Palfrey aka the “D.C. Madam”, was set to start serving a sentence this year after being convicted of running a prostitution ring. My guess is that jail was not on her agenda, so she hanged herself. {TheLede}

If any of you ever get the inkling to commit check fraud, try not to write the amount for 36 BILLION dollars. {DallasNews}

Spike Lee talks candidly about his current project, a WWII drama Miracle at St Anna, which features Michael Ealy and Derek Luke. {Telegraph}

Although she won’t admit to gettin’ busy with Fidel Castro (c’mon, we ALL know!), Barbara Walters broke that she hopped in the sack with married U.S. Senator Edward Brooke back in the ’70s. We personally believe that anything that happened back when Studio54 was open is admissible. {CNN}

Back when I lived in D.C, there was a homeless man who lived on New York Avenue, known as “Tree Branch Man” , because, well–he always was standing on the side of the road with a twig. Maybe these folks will start a website in his honor? {WIRED}

Oh Shit. It’s FRIDAY!!! As an added bonus, i’m going to see Jay-Z tonight….j’yeah! Have a good weekend ladies!
