The Worst Christopher Hitchens Item Ever

Christopher Hitchens + newspaper gossip columns… there’s a combination that should inspire tales of the Hitch’s massive tolerance for alcohol.

Note that the words “waxing of pubic hair” do not show up anywhere in the above graf. Well, here’s Page Six with their take on Hitchens’ male Brazilian bikini wax:

Pity him because he just had all his pubic hair pulled off. Hitchens, who’s writing a three-part series in Vanity Fair on self-improvement, visited the J Sisters on Friday for a full male Brazilian bikini wax, which his editor-in-chief Graydon Carter gleefully described four months ago as “the back, the crack and the sack.” The salon staff evidently doesn’t mind Hitchens’ chain-smoking, or his taste for scotch. Our source said, “It’s not his first time.”
