De La Hoya Admits Posing in Fishnets, Heels, Panties: Former boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya has admitted that four-year-old photos that show him in boxing gloves, fishnet stockings, women's undergarments and high heels are real. For years De La Hoya associates have attacked the reputation of 23-year-old stripper Milana Dravnel, who posed with him in some photos as they trysted in a Philadelphia hotel. "Let me tell you, yes, it was me," said De La Hoya in an interview with Univision. "I'm tired of lying, lying to people, lying to myself."

Item 1: having seen a picture of the other party in this case, I would say that anyone, especially Oscar, who is putting anything on, no matter what it is, fishnets or otherwise, is heading in the wrong direction.

Item 2: having noted that the woman is described as a yoga instructor and having seen the recent breathless reports about Alec Baldwin's new GF who is also a yoga instructor and who could also cause gridlock at a downtown crossing, there is something I urgently need to know:

Where do I go to register for fall classes?

Ask gay men who marry women and have kids with them.

Why the hell are we so obsessed with what other folks do after they close the door behind 'em?

And on a different tangent, if that particular woman had predicated our having sexual relations on my wearing a live-rattlesnake boa, I'd look like I'd been an extra on True Blood for two months.

They're aware of the truth and are ignoring it. They're lying to everyone else.

That hardly counts as a deep dark secret. A little cross-dressing? Big deal.

Wake me up when he's filmed in a fursuit.

I care a lot more about the threats and intimidation against the woman than about the photos.

I agree with that because he's now admitting that the photos are real but went above and beyond to prove that the pics weren't real when they first were published and made Milana Dravnel out to be a liar.

I smell a defamation of character lawsuit coming real soon.
