LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) – The owner of the legendary Bunny Ranch brothel has decided to follow suit and ban Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life.
Dennis Hof, the owner of The Bunny Ranch, announced Tuesday that Sterling would not be welcome at the famous brothel, said in a press release. Others who are banned include NFL quarterback Michael Vick and “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson.
Hof, who is the star of HBO’s “Cathouse” series, also announced that he has taken the first steps of forming a group with his prostitutes and brothel clients to purchase the Los Angeles Clippers.
“Teams like The Green Bay Packers have had great luck in allowing their fans to participate in ownership,” Hof said. “I think the notion of an embattled team like The Clippers being rescued from the clutches of a hateful racist by a multi-ethnic collection of successful business women is just what The NBA needs to improve the tarnished image of the franchise.”
Hof has put an offer on the table for V. Stiviano, the woman who blew the whistle on Sterling.
“Ms. Stiviano was brave enough to stand up for what she knew to be right in spite of the financial repercussions to her, and any business partnership would benefit from such a selfless display of ethics,” Hof explained. “I would like to offer her a position with our ownership group as vice president of player relations. This team has been ripped apart, and having the woman who righteously pled the case for racial equality to this old Jim Crow throwback would be the perfect choice to mend the fences with those men on the court.”
The only thing that is making Hof hestitate on bidding for the team is his longtime relationship with the Buss family who owns the Los Angeles Lakers.
“Johnny Buss has been a dear friend for years,” Hof said. “I hate to go into competition with his family, but a friendly cross town rivalry might be just what Los Angeles needs.”
