Did transgender model make a Baskett catch?

Posted: June 26, 2014

FOLLOWING A Radaronline.com story that former Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett had moved out of the home he shared with wife Kendra Wilkinson and their children because he was fooling around with transgender woman Ava London, In Touch magazine has spoken with Ava.

"Yes, I had sex with Hank," she blabbed to In Touch. "Hank and I had sex several times."

Ava claims that she and Hank even got it on when Kendra was pregnant with the couple's now 1-month-old daughter, Alijah.

"The last time we were together was about a month ago, right before [Kendra] had the baby," Ava told In Touch.

Radar claims that Hank and Ava met at the end of April after Hank had seen YouTube videos of Ava "and he couldn't believe that her photos were real," said an inside source.

"They mutually masturbated and he touched her breasts and penis," the source told Radar. "The entire encounter lasted probably about 15, 20 minutes. Before leaving, he gave her almost $500 and told her he wanted to stay in touch."

PC or not PC?

Commissioner Gordon has come to the defense of Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin and slammed political correctness, although his understanding of what political correctness is may be a bit sketchy.

In an expletive-laced interview with Playboy, Gary Oldman (the "Dark Knight" trilogy) decried the "political correctness" that ensnared the two actors after Gibson delivered an anti-Semitic rant in 2006 while being arrested for drunken driving and Baldwin used an anti-gay slur last year in a New York City street confrontation.

Oldman said that Gibson "got drunk and said a few things, but we've all said those things. We're all [expletive] hypocrites." He said he didn't blame Baldwin for using the slur because somebody bothered him.

"Mel Gibson is in a town that's run by Jews and he said the wrong thing because he's actually bitten the hand that I guess has fed him, and doesn't need to feed him anymore because he's got enough dough," Oldman said in the interview.

He urged the Playboy interviewer to "edit and cut half of what I've said, because it's going to make me sound like a bigot."

Uh, yeah.

Oldman said he's not a bigot, "but I'm defending all the wrong people. I'm saying Mel's all right, Alec's a good guy."

Oldman said of Gibson's arrest: "The policeman who arrested him has never used the word n----- or that f---ing Jew? I'm being brutally honest here. It's the hypocrisy of it that drives me crazy."

Douglas Urbanski, Oldman's longtime manager, said in an emailed statement to the Associated Press yesterday that the actor finds any kind of bigotry unacceptable and disgraceful. Urbanski said Oldman was criticizing hypocrisy and not defending his fellow actors, even though Oldman says in the article that he is indeed defending his fellow actors.

"In this interview Gary is doing what many intelligent people do," Urbanski said. "He is illustrating the absurd by being absurd."

You know what's kind of absurd? Claiming that being critical of someone who said to his arresting police officer, "The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world," is a problem with "political correctness." "PC" is about left-leaning teachings and media coverage. It does not pertain to hate speech from a drunk.

Next time someone starts spewing venom on the Broad Street subway about a particular race, religion or gender, it would not be "PC" to ask the person to stop it. It may, however, be dangerous, so don't do it. Just let them rant.

As for the policeman who arrested Gibson, former deputy James Mee, who just happens to be Jewish, told TMZ.com, that he never has called anyone a "f---ing Jew" and added "The N-word is a scary word. I would never even dream of using it. It sickens me that anyone would use that word."


* Two daredevils hoping to succeed where Evel Knievel failed 40 years ago in jumping a southern Idaho canyon are looking at delays due to television scheduling.

The Times-News of Twin Falls, Idaho, reports the dates for the Snake River Canyon jumps are being pushed back to late September or October.

Texas motorcycle daredevil "Big Ed" Beckley says he'll clear the chasm on a rocket-powered motorcycle. Hollywood stuntman Eddie Braun will make the jump with a steam-powered rocket.

The Snake River Canyon is a quarter-mile wide in some places and 500 feet deep.

Queen Elizabeth toured the Belfast sets of the hit HBO series "Game of Thrones" and met many of its stars yesterday beside the show's sword-covered seat of power, the Iron Throne.

Unlike many visitors to Belfast's Titanic Studios, the monarch declined to try out the throne created for the ruler of the mythical Seven Kingdoms and legendarily forged from a thousand swords. Instead, she received a miniature model as a gift.

"Game of Thrones" creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss escorted the queen through the show's sprawling sets - all part of the biggest TV production ever mounted in Europe.

"She kept commenting on how uncomfortable the throne looked. That was funny," said Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark.

"I don't think I've ever been as nervous to meet anybody," said Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, queen regent of the Seven Kingdoms.

You'd think a woman who bore three children with her own brother wouldn't really be nervous about anything.
