Citizen Scandal: NY Baker Sells Racist Cookies

Lafayette French Pastry owner Ted Kefalinos has learned the meaning of negative publicity after selling “Drunken Negro Face” cookies in honor of Barack Obama‘s inauguration. Customers at his Greenwich Village bakery also accuse Kefalinos of telling them “[Obama] following in the tradition of Lincoln…he’ll get what’s coming to him.” Here are some memorable quotes the baker has given in defense of his tribute to the President.

  • “On Inauguration Day I thought it would be cool to change the name to Obama Heads. I just changed it for the day.”
  • “[It's] not unflattering. I think it’s a fun face, and anyone who says anything else should be ashamed of themselves.”
  • “Lincoln was from Illinois, right? Ok, so…there ya go! He’s following in the footsteps of Lincoln.”
  • “My brother-in-law is Cuban…so, I like everybody…as long as they buy!”
  • “I’m sorry they feel that way, because I was trying to do a nice thing.”
  • “It’s an expression of freedom.”

Ironically, the bakery has been called a “celebrity favorite” in InStyle Magazine. Say goodbye to that market, Ted. Check out the My Fox NY interview with the baker after the jump.

Joe Francis and Shia LaBeouf Ruin Men’s Fashion

Yes, that is Joe Francis in a woman’s lingerie tank top. The pic above was taken at the Rock Band gift suite at the Sundance Film Festival, where apparently various publicists were begging reporters not to reveal his presence at their clients’ swag suites. Judging from the pic above, he’s not doing much to ensure his comeback anytime soon.

Meanwhile, the always eccentric boozehound Shia LaBeouf left a liquor store in Glendale, California, with a bag on his head and an Arizona Ice Tea in hand. It looks like stardom has literally gone to his head, in a very freaky way.  [Photos: WireImage/Splash News Online]

Palin Seeks $11m Book Deal, GOP Donors Seek Her Clothes

Attorney Robert Barnett, who has brokered book deals for everyone from President Barack Obama to former President Bill Clinton, is allegedly seeking an $11 million advance for Sarah Palin‘s memoirs. Hillary Clinton got $8 million for 2003′s Living History, but if Palin’s willing to say what she really thought of John McCain, it might be worth another three.

Once a publisher does drive a truck full of money to Wasilla, maybe she can do the RNC a solid and buy back all the clothes they gave her. Turns out her expensive campaign wardrobe, which the party promised to return or donate to charity, is sitting around their DC offices in garbage bags. Folks who suspect even more money was spent on the Palins than reported are taking the delay as proof the RNC has something to hide.

“First they make a colossal mistake of judgment by even agreeing to squander the party’s resources on these clothes,” a donor told The New Majority. “And then compound the error by failing to properly dispose of them. If they think donors are going to sit by and simply accept this they are mistaken.” Hey, Robert Barnett does TV deals too—maybe Palin should forget these party-pooping penny-pinchers and go back to newscasting.

Doctors Amputate Model’s Hands And Feet

No, it’s not the latest horror movie brought to you by the people who created Saw. Sadly, this story out of Brazil is straight up true. 20-year-old model and Miss Brazil contestant Mariana Bridi da Costa was misdiagnosed by doctors as having kidney stones, when really she had a severe urinary tract infection. By the time her medical team realized their mistake, a blood infection called septicemia was raging through her body, cutting off circulation in both her hands and feet. With no other choice left, the doctors first amputated her feet, then her hands.

Doctors even had to remove her stomach during her last surgery due to internal bleeding, and Mariana is currently on life support. A message on her website begs for prayers. “Continue praying for her,” it reads. “The doctors are doing everything that is humanly possible to save her, but only God can really save your (sic) life.”

Her boyfriend Thiago Simoes had this to say, “…she is a very strong person and we just want her to survive.”  [The Sun/CNN]

Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss Engaged To SNL‘s Fred Armisen

Mad Men hotties sure love their dorks, don’t they? Elisabeth Moss—Peggy Olson to the show’s fans—revealed that she’s engaged to SNL cast member Fred Armisen. “It happened just a few days ago,” Moss told USA Weekend. “It’s private, so I don’t want to share the details of how it happened, but I will say it was perfect.” Moss had a cameo on the SNL episode hosted by Mad Men co-star Jon Hamm in October…think that’s where they met?

Another question is whether Armisen will join Moss in the church of Scientology. That’s right, Xenu fans…Moss is a second-generation member of the controversial religion. Remember, Fred, “girls need clothes and food and tender happiness and frills, a pan, a comb, perhaps a cat.”
