Hey, did you know 50 Cent and Marv Albert were guests on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday night? Well, they were. If you saw it, I’m sure you thought it was underwhelming. But there was one part of the show that was surely entertaining. You just never saw it. It went on backstage before the show even started. That’s where 50 Cent’s entourage got a little physical with Mr. Albert.
As Albert arrived, with an entourage of one, TNT public relations specialist Jeff Pomeroy, there was a sudden scuffle when a multitude of 50 Cent protectors seemed unfamiliar with Albert. There was shouting (“It’s Marv Albert,” yelled a Kimmel show guard, a pronouncement that seemed to have no effect on the 50 Cent phalanx.) There were obscenities. A fist or two flying. A “Don’t you put your hands on me” pronouncement.
And finally Albert made it to his waiting room, relatively unruffled but slightly puzzled. “Did you see that?” Albert said. “I thought they were kidding, but then I realized they weren’t.”
No Marv Albert biting was reported. Though surely it happened, right?
