The sexy, hairy devil pictured above is Paul Snider, immortalized by Eric “Julia’s Brother” Roberts” in the film Star 80.

A small-time pimp from Vancouver, BC, Snider managed the career of Dorothy Stratten, pictured here:

When Stratten became a star in Playboy, she grew tired of Snider’s psycho-pimp possessiveness and became involved with film director Peter Bogdanovich.

Snider was unable to accept this emotional abandonment. He found himself incapable of “moving on” to prey upon other young, vulnerable potential nude models, so in 1980 he raped and murdered Stratten, then blew out his own sleazy brains with a shotgun.

Oh! Almost forgot—before killing himself and Dorothy Stratten, Snider squeezed in enough time to become a co-founder of the world-famous Chippendales pseudo-erotic men’s touring dance troupe.

Along with former gas-station owner Somen Banerjee and attorney Bruce Nahin, Snider helped establish the world-renowned group of topless, bow-tie-wearing muscle-headed performers. Then he killed himself and Dorothy Stratten.

It wasn’t long before Chippendales would face “major lawsuits pertaining to personal injury, alleged sexual bias against male guests, and charges of racial discrimination,” which makes us like them even more.

Even more exciting, co-founder Somen Banerjee wound up being charged with arranging the contract murder of Snider’s replacement, choreographer Nicolas de Noia. In 1994, Banerjee’s body was found hanging in his jail cell, presumably from suicide.

So the next time someone dismisses the Chippendales as merely a tacky striptease act for fat middle-aged women, don’t deny it, because that’s true. But remind them that this time-honored, standard-setting, banner-carrying act for male erotic entertainment has a history steeped in murder and bloodshed. Women love that sort of thing!
