The woman who gave Joakim Noah the finger shortly after he got ejected from the Bulls/Heat playoff game last night has been identified. Her name is Filomena Tobias and she is the widow of a former CNBC commentator named Seth Tobias. She was also once accused of killing Tobias, who died back in 2007 as a result of taking a mixture of alcohol, cocaine, and Ambien. And, well, that's really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Filomena's past. This New York Magazine story that was written back in February 2008 explains everything.
As for flipping off Noah, her daughter Victoria Racanti confirmed that it was her mother who gave him the finger. But Racanti said that her mom is embarrassed and doesn't want to talk about it.
"She is being a good sport," she told the Sun Sentinel. "She was having fun just like any other fan. All she has to say is that people need to get a life."
Having fun just like any other fan? Um, okay. Go read that NY Mag piece, like, now. This lady is definitely going to regret the night that she flipped off Joakim Noah.
