Dress to Impress


My boyfriend and I were taking his 19-year-old niece to a weekend festival. When we arrived at her house to pick her up, she appeared in tasteful but very short shorts, and a tank top with spaghetti straps. A debate began immediately about appropriate dress. I took the girl’s side, recalling that when we began dating, I dressed the same way.

“Yes,” said my boyfriend sternly, “and I said something about it, didn’t I?”

Everyone looked at me. “Yeah,” I replied. “You said, ‘What’s your phone number?'”

Unemployment in Los Angeles County is in the double digits, but prospects are looking up for 500 strippers, thanks to the reopening of a landmark nude dancing club on the Sunset Strip.

Salah Almudarris, who owns West Hollywood’s The Body Shop, says the club will reopen Thursday night, creating jobs for about 20 staff and as many as 500 of what he terms “independent contractors.”


An electrical fire badly damaged the Sunset Boulevard venue in December.

Almudarris says about 50 women will work each night and they could earn upward of $1,000 each.

The venue dates back decades and was mentioned in the 1980s Motley Crue song, “Girls, Girls, Girls.”

Almudarris says area bars may get a boost too, as his club serves no alcohol.

Internationally acclaimed filmmaker Shekhar Kapur has criticised the British tabloid that conducted a sting on Slumdog Millionaire child star Rubina Ali’s father Rafiq Qureshi.


Kapur, who directed a soft drinks advertisement with the nine-year-old and Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman recently in Udaipur in Rajasthan, has slammed the media organisation for the report and suggested that the “British tabloid needs to be condemned for the sting operation”.


“I just worked with Rubina, the little girl from Slumdog Millionaire and what a joy she was to work with… I had been reading about what was going on with her father’s alleged attempts to ‘sell’ her. I was aghast though at the sting operation done by that British tabloid, which, instead of being condemned worldwide, is being heralded as a great piece of journalism,” Kapur posted on his blog on Tuesday.


“…What was the tabloid trying to do? Trying to push a father to name a price for his daughter’s adoption?…How dare they judge and manipulate other people and their moral predicaments from their comfortable colonial point of view. I would rather have them arrested for obscene suggestions and offers than the father for coming to the negotiating table,” he added.


The online edition of the tabloid had reported that in a bid to escape slum life, Qureshi put Rubina up for adoption, demanding £200,000 from the organisation’s undercover reporters posing as a wealthy family from Dubai.


Tabloid Rubina Ali Cover Story

Slumdog Millionaire’s Rubina Ali is in the news again. But this time the news is not good. The girl’s father, Rafiq Qureshi has been arrested for allegedly trying to sell his daughter for 200,000 pounds.


He was arrested after a complaint was filed by Rubina’s biological mother, Khurshida. The 36-year-old man’s ex-wife claimed that she was aware of the matter two weeks ago. She alleged that Rubina, who plays young Latika in Slumdog, was being sold off to a sheikh in Dubai . Based on the complaint, the police took Qureshi for questioning.

They are also trying to get the video recordings of the meeting at which the deal was supposedly brokered. Terming her ex-husband and his new wife Mina as “money-crazy”, Khurshida said the two were desperate to cash-in on the nine-year-old’s fame. Rafiq, however has denied the allegations. Even his daughter has expressed her desire to remain with her dad.
