Imus Is Ready to Fight Back

Imus
When he goes back on air, Don Imus will likely not be so nice to those who took him to task for his "nappy-headed hos" comment. Socialista owner Armin Amiri quarantined paparazzi who were trying to snap photos of Penélope Cruz, Javier Bardem, and Josh Brolin and got the police to force them to give up their memory cards. (Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem are dating, by the way.) Val Kilmer got claustrophobic at a party at the Thompson Hotel and left his girlfriend there.
