We Get Mail

Farrah Abraham

    Got this gem over the weekend. Is this what they meant about don’t ride the white horse? The email:
    Last night, “Teen Mom” reality star Farrah Abraham made a special appearance at SLS Las Vegas, where she hosted the 2015 AVN Awards pre-party for Topco. The 23-year-old sex symbol arrived at LiFE Nightclub around 12:30 a.m. with new boyfriend Simon Saran, where they were joined by the ladies of Penthouse for a wild night of partying inside the hottest new mega club on the Las Vegas Strip.
    The crowd immediately welcomed the duo as they entered the venue hand in hand. Abraham was seen wearing a corset, boy shorts and chaps as she carried her latest creation, the infamous “Blowup Doll Farrah,” into the club. They began the evening with specialty cocktails and sipped champagne while Michael Woods kicked off the first performance of his exclusive ‘Tequila Nites’ residency. Drinks flowed throughout the night and culminated in the arrival of the nightclub’s epic Champagne Horse, which Abraham rode through the club as she waved a brightly colored glowstick in the air. The young star then danced the night away atop one of the nightclub’s go go boxes. She was seen throughout the night kissing and flirting with Saran as they partied and took photos together.
    Abraham was in town this weekend for her first-ever appearance at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo and will be presenting tonight at the AVN Awards.

Dodgers Wheeling And Dealing

Matt Kemp, Carlos Quentin

    Matt Kemp to the Padres? Reminds us of the gem above when the Dodgers and Padres squared off a bench-clearing brawl in 2013 resulting in a broken collarbone for Zack Greinke and Kemp wanting to bust a cap in San Diego’s Carlos Quentin outside the locker rooms for plenty see.
    Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman went to the winter meeting in San Diego with both guns blazing. But is he seriously thinking of dealing Kemp? We’ll probably know soon.
    Obviously, at some point he’s going to have to deal with the outfield situation. Kemp, though, isn’t the right guy to trade.
    OC Register
    As you know, the Dodgers sent Kemp to the Padres in what looks like a salary dump, but what some are saying and writing was a case of removing a problem in the locker room. I never saw that problem with Kemp. With me, he was always available to chat. Probably didn’t hurt either that he knew I was the only writer in the locker room who had sucked down 1 or 2 at Elmer’s (or maybe it was because I’m from Boley:).
    Couldn’t tell you if he was a problem with Manager Don Mattingly and the coaches. That’s what’s being written though. Still, Kemp wasn’t given the benefit of the doubt the past 2 years after he was seriously hurt with a shoulder and ankle injuries. And it’s not like the Dodgers haven’t dangled him before. They wanted him out of L.A. for whatever the reason. That might cost the Dodgers more than that $32 million they’re giving the Padres to take him.

Bryan Burwell: 1955-2014


    My heart’s a little heavy today.
    One of the country’s few black sports columnists and an outstanding writer with a colorful personality to boot, Burwell passed Thursday morning from cancer. He was only 59.
