Egg on his chest?
By Amy Reiter

I knew the brawl between online gossipists Jeannette Walls and Matt Drudge would get ugly, but who could have predicted allegations of a smeared egg sex fetish?
What's more, Walls says she finds it "hypocritical that a man who has become a spokesman of the far right has led a lifestyle at odds with the ultra-conservative values he supposedly embraces." And she finds it "ironic that a man whose entire career has been based on revealing the sexual behavior of others has a sexual history of his own that he now seems at pains to hide."
And what pains! After Washington landscaper David Cohen confirmed to Daily News columnist George Rush that he did, in fact, date Drudge, as Walls had reported, and after Walls hinted that she had refrained from printing even more "lurid allegations" about him in her book, Drudge seemed to get a little panicky.
After a mutual friend of both gossipists tipped off Drudge as to just what these "lurid allegations" were -- a nasty case of pubic lice, a penchant for fully clothed sex in the shower and a bizarre egg fetish -- he began to spread them himself.
