On the rocks alert:
John Travolta caught cheating on tape!

Publication: National Enquirer
Date: 25 October 2010

I can't say much nice about the National Enquirer and nobody should. But I will say one thing. They are tenacious. There have been several celebrities they have decided to hate and they keep going after them, even if nearly no other gossip rag thinks the story is worth pursuing. This year, we've seen the Flagship given this kind of treatment to Al Gore, Whitney Houston and John Edwards. Now they have John Travolta in their sights. The details this time include:

  • Sleazy hotel hookers
  • what's on a shocking video tape
  • his pregnant wife Kelly humiliated weeks before giving birth
The level of hatred they show is remarkable. It should be noted that back in July, the Enquirer had a headline that made it look like Kelly Preston had a miscarriage, which was a complete lie.

The Enquirer has had some successes in the past decade, most notably uncovering the secret lives of Rush Limbaugh and John Edwards, but they also go off half cocked a lot and their headline writers often make sensational claims the stories on the inside of the magazine cannot back up.

He's just not the sleazy motel/hooker type.
I think Scientology prohibits that type of behavior, but being a closeted gay man is okay.

How do you cheat on a tape? Listen to a cd or vinyl record?

Okay, let's examine this story a little closer.
If Travolta took a hooker to a hotel, wouldn't he be the one who picked it out and paid for it?
If so, when would she have time to plant a video camera?
And if he was the one who planted the camera, then he would be the one to leak it to the press, right?
Or would he be stupid enough to give the tape to the hooker? I doubt it.
This story is just plain bullshit.
I hope he sues the Enquirer.

Padre: Tee hee!

KZ: This might be like the "tape" they had on Al Gore, evidence that two people were seen leaving the same room. In Al Gore's case, since he said he paid for a therapeutic massage, it could be innocent. If Travolta went to a sleazy motel, it might be harder to explain.

I'd have to see the tape with my own eyes, as well as a polygrapher's sworn statement and some of his DNA on the hooker's panties to believe any of that horseshit.
