It may not look like it, but I'm on an important journalistic assignment. The men of LaBare are getting prepared for a special event Monday night.
LISA PIRRO: "Lots and lots of dreamy guys taking their clothes off to help save the ta-tas."
This strip-a-thon is for Glam-A-THONG. Oops, I mean Glam-A-THON, a breast cancer charity.
TAMMY GAIL, Glam-A-THON: "A hundred percent of the tickets that we sell on our website go back to the charity, and it's only 20 bucks."
Here's a Deco-decadent preview. Call fire rescue and hose me down. It's getting hot in here!
Shireen: "Can you give me a couple of adjectives just to describe what people will experience?
TAMMY GAIL: "Oh my God, hard, hot and yummy."
Shireen: "Oh, no! No, no, ahhh!"
MASON: "I've had girls rip my pants off when I'm dancing."
Shireen: "Oh, God, those girls, you can't take 'em anywhere. right?"
Shireen: "One, two, three." (pulls off pants)
ANNOUNCER: "Something tells me she's gone happy for it."
Shireen: "So we shared a special moment."
MASON: "We have that memory together now.
Shireen: "We do. What was it? I'm sweating just standing by you!
MASON: "I'm sweating. Look at me."
And don't forget to tip. It's all for the cause.
Shireen: "When you get the tips, what percentage do you keep and what percentage goes to Glam-A-THON?
BLADE: "Ahh, I believe it's a 50/50 split."
Even if you have to fight for it.
Shireen: "OK, ladies, when you come out, you can't be, you know, you can't hold back. You gotta give, give 'til it hurts!"
SHIREEN: Go ahead. Wait, wait. (unbuttons Blade's shirt) OK, I feel better about that. Woo hoo hoo!"
And men can get breast cancer too. So I offered to perform a "man-o-gram."
Shireen: "OK, so it's very important to have healthy breasts. As I noticed, you have very nice breasts. They are pierced, which is probably good for circulation."
Shireen: "Would you like me to give you a breast exam? I mean, just to…"
MASON: "I'm actually, I'm overdue for one."
Some days, I love my job!
Shireen: I think it's, wait. I'll check that one again. Yeah, mm-hmm, pretty healthy."
MASON: "yeah? good. yeah." (smacks chest)
Shireen: "You'll be OK."
All kidding aside, these men have big…hearts in their big chests.
