new deets on illegal celeb poker game

Earlier this week, we heard all about an underground poker game which is attended by Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, and Ben Affleck.

Madoff's Undies, Shoes & Jewelry Bring In $2 Million


Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff's old possessions turned out to be a huge success at the U.S. Marshal auction on Saturday.

The big ticket item of the day was wife Ruth Madoff's 10.5 carat diamond ring that sold for $550K.

What a steal!

Another item that fetched a pretty penny were a pair of velveteen slippers with Bernie's initials embroidered on them in gold thread. They went for $6000.

The strangest purchase by far had to be 11 pairs of unused designer boxers and 200 pairs of socks, which were purchased by the same man for $1,700.

Kinda creepy, even if they are new.

At the end of the day the auction brought in over $2 million, which will benefit Madoff's victims.

Wesley Snipes' Goons Trail Pole Dancer To Clear Himself Of Tax Charges!

Filed under: Legal MattersWesley Snipes


He must be getting desperate!

Dianne Passage, the pole dancing wife of alleged Ponzi schemer Ken Starr, claims that private investigators employed by Wesley Snipes have been following her to gather evidence that clears the actor of tax charges.

Passage said:

"I was leaving, and I noticed two men trailing behind me. They stood out because they were wearing dark suits on a 90-degree day. They followed me for a block and a half, then I lost them because they were sweating so much.

They contacted my doorman and my attorney, and said they wanted information that might help Snipes. He was a client [of Starr] in 2000 but before I met my husband. I have nothing to do with his taxes."

Starr testified against the actor even though Starr was busted for running a $60 million Ponzi scheme.

And while Snipes is appealing his 2008 conviction for failing to pay $12 million in taxes, he wants a retrial on the grounds that the jury didn't know Starr was being investigated for the Ponzi scheme.
