L.A. Mayor Villaraigosa

SQUIRMS

Over Charlie Sheen Encounter

EXCLUSIVE

010913_major_villagrossa_launch
For a guy who earned the nickname Mayor Suave, Antonio Villaraigosa was anything BUT smooth when we asked him about the ongoing Charlie Sheen drama yesterday ... in fact, AV's response is downright laughable.

Villaraigosa was in L.A. for an event with philanthropist Eli Broad when we asked about Charlie Sheen's recent claim -- that he and the mayor partied together in Mexico for HOURS.

Of course, AV has been in media "spin mode" ever since a photo emerged of the two -- with Villaraigosa claiming he simply posed for a pic with Sheen during a harmless 3 minute encounter ... and nothing more.

Sheen called BS (and later apologized for calling BS, but never took back his story).

But when we asked about Sheen's claims yesterday ... the Mayor tried to change the topic in the most awkward way possible ... and then tried to mock the situation.

It's so shameless, you can't help but laugh.

Ricco's ears are back and his tail is tucked in this clip. He looks like a snaggle toothed ferrel cat fresh from a garbage can fight over a meatless fish bone. Nothing suave about that. It is a small situation but it really underscores this Mayor's slimy character. It's suddenly more about his slimy tendencies then about any interaction with a movie star. Yuck.

Everyone in the know, knows Antonio's a player. I would bet my house he was there for hours but who cares! If he parties on his own time and it doesn't detract from his job big deal.

Someone among this mayors laughing buddies ought to tell this little mayor that Charlie Sheen makes way more then he will in his life time, and that amount I'm talking about is a years pay. Even on a bad year.

Just looking at him makes me feel dirty. I think he is the worst Mayor Los Angeles has ever had, yet for some reason everybody seems to kiss up to him. Has anybody asked who paid for his trip to Mexico? Did the tax payers of Los Angeles pay for the Mayor to party with Charlie Sheen at a hotel opening? Hmmmmm, doesn't seem like Mayorial business to me.

The Mayor is trying to climb that corporate ladder. Some think he may attempt a White House run in the future.
They will need to erase all of those undercover local news investigations they did on him a few years back though. Obama isn't known for wandering off the farm, like the mayor is.
