Going to the mat
Yep, wrestlers go over the top. That’s what Cyndi Lauper learned when she got entangled with “Captain” Lou Albano. The singer had met him on a plane and found him fascinating, so she cast him in her music videos such as “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.” But as Page Six reported in 1984, it was all fun until Albano started bragging that he had co-written the song and “Time After Time.” The last straw was an appearance on a wrestling talk show, when Albano referred to Lauper as a “barroom broad” and declared that “all women belong in the kitchen getting pregnant.” Cyndi told Page Six, “I’m Italian and there’s something that made me, you know, lose it,” and she socked him with her purse. But could it all have been a put-on for pro wrestling? Inquiring minds wonder . . .
