Welp, looks like those cheerleader rumors have legs…

I can’t imagine Deke Bellavia over payola radio way will be happy about this latest turn of events.  In any event Slabbed broached a subject no one else would touch at the time.

Anderson Cooper’s strange fixation with Nunny during the Oil Spill comes into sharper focus……

Slabbed lifers well know I was very critical of Billy Nungesser being a permanent guest host on AC360 back during the oil spill given the baggage that comes with the guy.  Frankly I thought the fixation was indeed strange and that’s not to mention the crazy perverted stuff about Nunny and Gidget’s girls back in the day but Nunny is a golden child in certain GOP circles and this does not count persistent rumors of the Plaquemines Parish Prez and golden showers.

Blood in the water Monday: Since someone has to defend Ricky Mathews…..

Speaking of DuBos has anyone else noticed he has been bashing Mathews on a fairly regular basis?  Not quite Slabbed style but close.

There are several theories about why DuBos harbors such a distaste for Ricky Mathews. Continue reading “Blood in the water Monday: Since someone has to defend Ricky Mathews…..”
