There's disturbing, there's terrifying, there's soul-destroying ... and then there's learning that Tommy Lasorda is mentioned in a new book as a frequent customer of a call-girl service.
In "Secrets of a Hollywood SuperMadam," an autobiography due in bookstores Thursday, Gibson names two dozen celebrities she says patronized her call-girl service. A review of the court file shows that Gibson listed actor Bruce Willis; former Dodgers Manager Tom Lasorda; Steve Jones, the Sex Pistols guitarist and KDLE-FM (103.1) radio jock; and the late film producer Don Simpson, among others.
"I have never heard of this woman and don't know why she would accuse me of something like this," Lasorda said in a statement issued by his attorney, Tony Capozzola. "But if she prints these lies, I intend to sue."
We eagerly await further explanation from Tommy Lasorda's Blog; we can't imagine that guy dipping body parts into anything more controversial than plates of penne, personally. But maybe we're just trying to protect our brain there.
