Slander Edition Friday

Bring on the libel!!

* KSTP's Cyndy Brucato was recently seen dining at Chino Latino, where she drank 4 mojitos, 3 Amstel Lights, and multiple shots of tequila. She snuggled up to local scenester Joe Werner, lead singer of the Bridge Club. She snuck out halfway through their canoodling, sticking him with the bill. Youch!

* City Pages writer Mike Mosedale is apparently making some "freelance" cash on the side: as a pimp.

* The cast of the disappointing play The Awesome 80's Prom is so depressed with their poor reviews, that they have taken to doing tons of cocaine. That's so 80's!

Slightly delayed, but we know that you need your hotdish fix. We will credit our grandmother for this recipe:

1 chopped onion slightly precooked
3 cups or so of cooked macaroni
green beans (optional)

any leftover cheese you have

Mix all ingredients together in baking pan. Cook in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Delicious.

We are postponing our weekly hotdish recipe to inform you that Slanderous Minneapolis has officially sold out. That's right: we're selling ads. If you want to sponsor this site and contribute to our Black Label budget, just take the link in the sidebar. Pretty please?

Totally Legitimate Interview

After making him the butt of several jokes a couple of weeks ago, WCCO's Rick Fuentes was a good enough sport to submit to a Totally Legitimate Interview.



SM: Do you consider yourself to be a local celebrity?

Fuentes: No, definitely not. I can't even get a patio seat at the Chatterbox.

SM: If you weren't popular for being a news reporter, what would you like to be known for instead?

Fuentes: I didn't know I was popular.

SM: If Jason DeRusha had a gun to your head and demanded that you take him out for dinner, where would you dine with him?

Fuentes: What's the infatuation with Jason DeRusha? Oh, I get it. He is popular.

SM: What is the strangest story you've reported for WCCO?

Fuentes: I seem to do a lot of stories about poop. People, geese, dogs...I'm the number one reporter about ol' number two.

SM: What do you secretly wish you could report on, but that might embarass you in front of The Shelb?

Fuentes: The Shelb? You mean "the Don?" Don embarrasses me no matter what I report on. He always knows more than I do.

SM: If you summed up this interview in five words or less, what would you say?

Fuentes: Find somebody who's actually famous.


Rick, please note that due to your depressing answers, we are encouraging 'CCO to do some sort of happy-intervention with you. Buck up!
