An in-depth article published by The New York Review of Books recently laid out DSK's every move on the morning of May 14, 2011. Now, several news sources are now trying to figure out the meaning (if any) of a three-minute celebratory dance performed by Sofitel employees immediately after their colleague, Nafissatou Diallo, gave her testimony to police.

Um, what?

Apparently, there is footage of hotel staffers high-fiving each other right after Diallo's sexual assault charges were made official—as if they had 'pulled off' some kind of premeditated plot. Though the hotel released a statement saying the dance only "lasted eight seconds," and that it had nothing to do with DSK whatsoever, it is still unclear why they were frolicking in the first place.

The Daily Beast managed to question the two employees caught dancing on tape, who explained they "couldn't recall the exact reason for their fleeting celebratory behavior," but they believe "it may have involved sports." Oh, OK. This is making a lot more sense.

The hotel, after months of silence throughout the entire scandal, is now speaking out to denounce the article as "inaccurate and speculative."

Meanwhile, many questions still hang in the air: Why did Diallo wait so long between the "brutal" incident and telling the police? Why did the police find semen and saliva samples on the bathroom door? When will we see the final cut of the DSK porno? And perhaps most importantly, who won (or lost) the sports game that caused so much celebration inside the hotel? We wanna know!

What are your thoughts on the never-ending hotel maid sex scandal? Is there more to know? Should we just forget about it? Let us know in the comments below!
