Update: Amy Fisher Stripping for Haiti

from www.thecelebritycafe.com – Amy Fisher, formerly nicknamed “The Long Island Lolita,” is joining the Haiti relief effort to help fund rescue missions, medical teams, and reconstruction projects in the earthquake-stricken region.

However, unlike the throng of celebrities who have pledged their support through Wyclef Jean’s Yele Haiti and appearances at Friday night’s well-publicized Hope for Haiti telethon, Fisher has organized a benefit event of her own, and plans to aid earthquake victims by donating, and matching, tips from several of her exotic dancing shows. Proceeds from her topless performances at Commack’s Scene Restaurant & Lounge will also be supplemented by the restaurant owner and a Long Island radio show host.

Fisher’s husband Lou Bellera spoke out about the fundraiser, emphasizing that these shows are not tawdry acts of self-promotion.

“She’s not a pole-climber,” Bellera told Newsday. “She wears a showgirl costume, but she’s like a politician greeting the crowds.”

Humanitarian stripping is nothing less than what one would expect from Fisher, who has rebuilt her life around a successful career in the adult entertainment industry after spending seven years in prison for first-degree aggravated assault.

Now 35, Fisher first rose to notoriety in 1992 when she shot former lover Joey Buttafuoco’s wife, Mary Jo, in the head. Fisher’s affair with Buttafuoco was investigated by authorities, and based on a hotel receipt dated days before her 17th birthday, Buttafuoco was charged and convicted of statutory rape. The love triangle immediately became a national sensation, and Fisher’s torrid affair with Buttafuoco was epitomized in several made-for-television films.

Needless to say, it’s a relief to see that the Long Island Lolita’s activities these days are not only legal, but also charitable.
