In the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, the word Chippendales was synonymous for rock-hard abs and beefcake male strippers. But what a lot of people don’t know is that behind the G-strings and bowties there were scandals involving jealousy and murder.
Oxygen’s “Mysteries Scandals” explores the tragic murder of Chippendales’ producer Nick De Noia. Here are some interesting things to keep in mind regarding the case.
Steve Banerjee Created Chippendales
Banerjee, originally from India, came to the United States and opened the night club known as Chippendales that would later have nightly shows featuring male strippers. Chippendales was originally named “Destiny 2,” but Banerjee wanted a more elegant name. Banerjee’s lawyer noted that the furniture in the club was “chippendales” style and renamed it as such.

As the Turpin children continue to acclimate back to society, they got a famous visitor. The “House of Horrors” siblings were treated to a private concert by world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma, according to the Press-Enterprise.
The 18-time Grammy winner performed for the group prior to an arts discussion at Historic Civic Center Theater in Corona, California on March 2, according to the city’s mayor Karen Spiegel.
Yo-Yo is perhaps the most famous cellist in the world, being awarded the National Medal of Arts in 2001 and Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2011. He’s also embedded himself into pop culture and has made cameos on “The Simpsons” and “Arthur.”
As previously reported, the 13 Turpin siblings (dubbed the “Magnificent 13” by locals) were found living in alleged captivity at the hands of their parents, 56-year-old David and 49-year-old Louise. An older daughter escaped and went to authorities. It’s alleged that the parents tortured and

Believed to be one of the very first slasher films and the inspiration behind Halloween, this horror cult-classic follows a group of sorority sisters who are stalked and murdered by a murderer hiding in their attic. To make things even scarier, the premise is based on an urban legend combined with true crime: a string of killings that happened in Montreal. A remake with the same name was made in 2006.
2. Silent Night, Deadly Night, 1984

The home invasion horror movie is a sub-genre dating back to 1909 with D.W. Griffith’s film The Lonely Villa. While the cinematic grouping has been taken in a more zany and post-modern direction in recent years, the sub-genre continues to play on the everyday fear of strangers violating the sanctity of our private spaces. Here’s our list of some of the scariest home invasion movies ever made.
1. The Strangers (2008)
Byran Bertino’s immensely suspenseful and ultimately nihilistic film claims to be based on a true story, although the director has since admitted that’s a bit of an exaggeration. Either way, the movie launched a handful of lesser copycats in the years that followed. Liv Tyler stars as the terrified victim who attempts to survive an onslaught of unknown assailants.
2. The Purge (2013)
The movie’s tagline says it all: “One night a year, all crime is legal.” Although there’s a hyper-political, speculative
