MUST SEE TV Kola Boof lived with Osama Bin Laden for several months in 1996--at least that's what she alleges in DIARY OF A LOST GIRL, her autobiography.

The book delivers some interesting insights into the mid-90s Bin Laden (via Harpers):

1. He had a thing for Van Halen and the B-52s.
2. He smoked marijuana from a gold (colored?) hookah.
3. He talked often about his strongs feelings for Whitney Houston, and about having Bobby Brown killed.
4. Favorite TV shows? MIAMI VICE, MACGYVER and, yes, WONDER YEARS.
