So it seems you can throw a man as many bachelor parties as you want; he's still gonna toss you overboard when push comes to shove. In what we at Gawker are claiming as a victory no matter the facts, Page Six has finally made mention of Girls Gone Wild auteur Joe Francis' reporter-assaulting ways. To be sure, they handle it delicately (it's more of a prostate exam than an anal rape, to put it in terms Francis would understand), suggesting merely that Francis might be wise to hire a P.R. person (we bet Lori Brown's available). They also end the piece on an up note: "Hoffman reports that Francis is working on extending the "Girls Gone Wild" brand with a feature film, ocean cruises, a fashion line and restaurant chain." No word yet on the molestations he's planning for fall, though.
