Tuesday's intriguing people

Jerry Lewis

The comedian and entertainer will make his final appearance as the host of the Muscular Dystrophy Association Labor Day Telethon. In a statement released on mdausa.org, Lewis said, "It's time for an all new Telethon era. This year's six hour prime-time telethon on September 4 will be spectacular, and I'm thrilled to be part of it." He'll continue on as National Chairman of MDA, a role he's held since the 1950s.

Mabou Loiseau

The Queens girl knows seven languages, plays six musical instruments and is learning tap and ballet in her home studio, all at the age of 5. Loiseau's parents told the New York Daily News that they spend $1,500 a week on tutors and lessons and that the young prodigy spends up to 7 hours a day in some type of instruction. Sunday is her off day. Loiseau, who grew up speaking French, Creole and English says Russian is her favorite language. "Honestly, I just want to open doors for my daughter," said Loiseau's mother, Esther. "She is really my princess."

Anne Sinclair

The American-born wife of Dominique Strauss-Kahn released a statement saying, "I do not believe for one second the accusations brought against my husband. I have no doubt his innocence will be established." Sinclair is a journalist who quit her job as one of France's premier interviewers when Strauss-Kahn became France's finance minister. The Washington Post reports that the couple kept a low profile in the D.C. area, mostly socializing with family and close friends.

    Kahn's wife is in complete denial. Whether it's because she doesn't want to believe the truth or she is afraid of losing a lot of money in a law suite I don't know. Joey I really don't know how you can so flippantly dismiss this woman unless it's just on the basis that she has a blue collar job. What proof does Kahn's wife have that he isn't guilty other than Kahn telling her he didn't do it? Was she present at the time, from what I have read she was still in France. Even Barbara Walters. Seems to believe the allegations and I doubt that she would jump to a hasty conclusion without fore knowledge of what Kahn may be capable of.

    I suppose if the child wants to do all that then it's alright, but it seems to be bordering on child abuse to me.

    Kahn on suicide watch, looking guiltier by the hour.
