Is That a Pubic Hair on Your Coke or Are You Just Happy to See Me?




Don’t get me wrong, I love my Real Housewives and I am obsessed with Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, but once in a while this trash-TV junkie hankers for a hunk of meatier real-life drama. And that’s when I wax nostalgic for the 1990s, the golden age of reality television.


That’s right, I’m talking about William Kennedy Smith. I’m talking about the Menendez brothers. I’m talking about Heidi Fleiss. And don’t get me started on O.J. Make a bitch wanna slip on some Bruno Maglis and do the Tootsie Roll.

That’s why I gotta give props to Virginia Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. She’s bringing Long Dong Silver back, one pubic hair at a time.

How?  Well, it seems that earlier this month, Mrs. Thomas left a message on the voicemail of Anita Hill, the woman who, nearly twenty years ago, accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment, accusations that prompted the now-infamous, sexually charged confirmation hearings reality entertainment that, in retrospect, makes Jersey Shore look like Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood.

 NYT:

“Good morning Anita Hill, it’s Ginni Thomas,” it said. “I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband.”


Why did Mrs. Thomas wait all these years to contact Ms. Hill? For days, the Internet has been abuzz with speculation that the call (placed at 7:30 on a Saturday morning) was nothing more than a case of drunk-dialing. Those who have heard the recording, however, claim Mrs. Thomas' voice sounded lucid and coherent.


So, was this really just a quest for closure on the part of Mrs. Thomas? Or was there something else, something a bit more diabolical, going on?

In any event, this shit is crazy. If I were Orrin Hatch, I might just reference The Exorcist right about now. But I'm not, so I won't.

Why she'd want to relive that is beyond me. Should have let sleeping dogs lie.

First of all, you have an awesome tag cloud. And this post makes some truly delicious additions.

Mrs. Justice Thomas has played the sympathy card over this episode for a long time. And now, Clarence Coke-can's old girlfriends are emerging with their own stories. Are we going to find out that the real appeal of Ginni Thomas to her husband was her proficiency at teabagging?
