The Playboy Mansion Is Dirty
Dudes will wait as long as it takes to get a glimpse of fake boobies at the Playboy Mansion, but they may want to reconsider that right now. Hugh Hefner's main pad is...infested! And no, not with STDs, although we totally would have believed that one. The mansion is under investigation after more than 80 guests at a conference and party there became ill with a strain of Legionnaires' disease.
Scores of attendees at the Domainfest conference in Santa Monica, held Feb. 1 to 3, came down with symptoms including fever, respiratory infections and violent headaches. Four Swedish guests were diagnosed with Legionellosis or pontiac fever -- a milder form of Legionnaires' caused by bacteria that thrives in warm air-conditioning systems.
DNJournal.com editor Ron Jackson, whose wife, Diana, was stricken, said, "So far, the number [of victims] is around 80. Everybody says they became ill around 24 hours after the party.
Jackson said, "Four guys from Sweden were diagnosed with [Legionellosis], and they have the same symptoms as everyone else. I don't want to point the finger at the Playboy Mansion, but the disease blives in warm water, and people were engulfed in mist at that party." He's filed a report with the CDC.
And that's what you get for hanging out in the slut zone!
