Okay, they weren’t bearded ladies…they were men but the rest is true. So says the $110 million lawsuit filed by the gossip column alum of Roll Call, the Washington Times and the Examiner.

Check out a choice excerpt from the most “entertaining” WaPo article this year:

Former gossip columnist Karen Feld alleges that her businessman brother, Kenneth Feld — whose family-entertainment conglomerate includes the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus — authorized her forceful removal from their aunt Shirley’s shiva service. Karen Feld claims that a trio of “large, aggressive” bodyguards working for Kenneth beat her and threw her into an elevator, along with her ever-present toy poodle, Campari.

Her suit alleges that the beating aggravated a brain tumor that later had to be removed, and caused her emotional distress, “symptoms of Tourette Syndrome” and “seizure-like episodes.” For those and other alleged injuries, Karen Feld wants $110 million in damages from her younger brother.
