You may have to be a macho masked vigilante to get away with wearing pantyhose. But men all over the world are giving it a try anyway. Since the release of The Dark Knight, there has been a sudden craze for male hosiery, with suspected Batman fetishists buying up sheer, satin and glossy tights.

“We aren’t sure if it is the Batman effect or what, but sales to men have been going through the roof,” Kieran Hughes, director of Precious Collections tells the Atlanta Constitution Journal. Has the world gone mad? Not according to Deborah Ashley, managing director of Luxelegwear.com, who says: “Men have begun to dominate the hosiery market once owned by women.” The company carries 13 styles designed specifically for men.

MONSTER? NO JUST A MONSTOUSLY AMUSING MOVIE HOAX!

Goldberg
The so-called Monster of Montauk may have just been a publicity stunt dreamed up by the makers of a low budget horror movie. New claims have come to light that Rachel Goldberg, the woman who discovered the famed beastie, is actually the sister of none other than movie producer Darren Goldberg (pictured above), who is making a movie about, you guessed it, …monsters.

Internet curio-blog Gotham News has just revealed the creature was most likely a prop used in Goldberg’s film Splinterheads. One insider, calling herself “Tonya,” explained the stunt will be revealed when the flick comes out next year. “Tonya” says the original pictures of the Montauk Monster were a stage prop from the Splinterheads movie set.

Says the intrepid Gotham News team: “We guess it will probably all make a little more sense when you see the film. Maybe we should just be relieved that horrible thing wasn’t actually real!”

Meanwhile, what of Mr Goldberg, who has surprisingly been unavailable for comment? In an interview he gave to Newsday recently, Goldberg is quoted saying how he “grew up in Manhattan and spent summers in Amagansett.” (Amagansett is the next town over from Montauk.) But you can read all about his movie here.

FORGET ABOUT MOVIES: SHEEN RAKES IN TV FORTUNE

TV Guide's top earners
He hasn’t been in a decent movie since Platoon but Charlie Sheen doesn’t care. A new poll by TV Guide shows he’s coining it in, thanks to his role on lacklustre sitcom, Two and a Half Men. Apparently, Sheen gets $825,000 for each weekly episode.

That’s more than enough to keep money-grabbing ex Denise Richards in the style she is accustomed to. She might now want to get her hooks into Sheen’s fellow CBS star William Petersen, who takes home $600,000 an episode for portraying investigator Gil Grissom on the hit police drama “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”

Meanwhile, despite all her complaining about the mean script writers, Katherine Heigl is the best paid female TV actress, raking in $13 mil for her role on Grey’s Anatomy. It’s unlikely she will complain about that.

YOU CAN’T FIRE ME, I’M QUITTING

Working as a publicist for $50 million girl Heather Mills must be a challenging job. But Michele Elyzabeth apparently finds it a little too challenging and has handed in her notice after four long years. The last straw, she says, was when Paul McCartney‘s ex-wife called her “stupid.”

“I refuse to be subjected to her outbursts,” bleated Elyzabeth to US tabloid TV show, Extra. “On reflection and given the way I have been treated, I now have sympathy with much of what the British press has reported about her. Yesterday, we engaged in a heated argument during which she called me “stupid.” I reminded her that she was not “God” and she answered, “I will never ever talk to you again.”

While we admire Michele’s principled stand, you can’t help wondering how she would have carried out her job successfully in the future if Heather was never going to talk to her again.

Roo cannot be serious – millionaire in kanga cruelty claim

Posted in Top Dollar News, Twits by Jim McMillan on July 25, 2008

Aussie tycoon Lloyd Williams could be facing jail time after his stick-wielding staff chased 20 kangaroos off his Victoria horse stud farm. Dozens of men on quad bikes tried to herd the ‘roos off Williams’ property and now, says the Victoria Herald Sun, the multi-millionaire and his goons will be investigated for breaches under both the Wildlife and Cruelty to Animals Acts.

Reports the Herald Sun, “Panicked animals crashed into fences and got caught on wiring, many tripping over as they fled in all directions. Six large roos driven through an open gate and on to a road took off up a crest – potentially into the path of traffic.” The ‘roo eviction followed an undertaking to the Victorian Department of Sustainability and Environment heads that no action would be taken before a meeting with the department next Monday.

Incensed wildlife volunteers who tried to help the animals described the eviction as “ignorant, reckless, irresponsible, illegal and futile.” Williams’ son Nick, who manages the property, was present at the kangaroo drive but declined to comment. Even though it looks like his dad could be kangaroo meat when the investigation concludes.
