Mary Ann Mobley, come get your husband already! Gary Collins was the host of my favorite late 1980s TV experience The Home Show, so it pains in the heart to read about how he still hasn’t gotten his shit together. In the past 8 years, Gary has been busted 3 times for DUI and now he’s adding a fourth mug shot to his collection. But this time, Gary wasn’t arrested for letting Jack Daniels be his co-pilot. TMZ says that Gary was put into handcuffs after he walked out on a $59.35 restaurant bill without laying down his Diner’s Club. Gary did this shit in Mississippi, where it’s a felony to not pay a $25 or more bill.
Gary had himself a meal of steak and cocktails at Jazzeppi’s in Biloxi last night. When the bill showed up, Gary simply sashayed out of the restaurant and ignored the screams from the staff to pay his shit. They called the cops, Gary was arrested and now he’s sitting in a cell on $5,000 bail.
Gary used to be THE BIGGEST FUCKING STAR IN THE HISTORY OF TELEVISION (served on a plate made from exaggeration) and now he’s in jail for spitting on a $60 restaurant bill? How the mighty have…etc..etc… If Gary didn’t have the cash, he should’ve called up his wife! Mary Ann could’ve pawned off one of her wigs or something.
Welcome to rock bottom, Gary. Hopefully, Mary Ann Mobley does the right thing and makes a rescue ladder out of her wigs and old rhinestone gowns so she can get her husband out of there.
