The Skinny

It’s been a wild and wacky week in the world of gossip. And the story of Ron
and the New York Post just keeps getting stranger. Burkle apparently
helped set up a sting operation to nab gossip columnist Jared Paul Stern
when Stern allegedly tried to extort money from Burkle to keep Burkle’s name
out of the paper. In light of those recent events, The Skinny is pleased to
announce it’s new Web site,, which we will keep up until
somebody pays us to take it down. While there, you can get the latest Burkle
news, the latest on Burkle-backed legislation, and much, much more. And
while you’re surfing, you also can submit a bid to get us to take the site
down. All reasonable offers will be accepted
