http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?p=8366999#post8366999NO PAPER does scandal like the British tabloid News of the World, which turned its blowtorch to Shane Warne yesterday, publishing pictures of his "memorable innings" last week with two women in a London flat.
Using what appeared to be a hidden camera, and the two big-mouthed rompers, the paper ensured that what happened in the bedroom went far beyond it. Among the insights were Warne's Playboy underpants and the use of a "4ft inflatable googly".
It claimed he sent a text message to one romper, saying his sexual appetite had contributed to the split with his wife, Simone. "She said that I was killing her," he wrote. In another he said "I am like a dog on heat." Warne is playing county cricket in England and we could not track either him or his manager down last night for comment.
For their parts, the rompers couldn't stop talking. One, Emma Kearney, said: "He made love the way I like a man to. He was a bit rough, he bit me a couple of times and was firm and manly."
But nowhere in the yarn did they say how much they were paid for the story.
Whatever you think about the small matter of Warne's privacy, it's not a good look for a bloke who's in the midst of negotiating a return to Channel Nine. What with the death of Richard Carleton and the start of the Logies, a Nine spokeswoman declined to comment, but last year Warne lost his contract with the broadcaster after an earlier sex-text scandal. A spokesman for Cricket Australia also declined to comment, not having read the latest on The Tabloids v Warne before we called.
ahaha that image is so owned
