Randy and Evi Quaid (seen above in less-bonkers times) have been living that suspicious conspiracy theorist life for a couple of years now. Randy and Evi went on the run after claiming to be the victims of high-powered Hollywood “Star Whackers” hell-bent on destroying their lives. They were deeply committed to their paranoia; really, all that was missing was Randy or Evi declaring they’d switched over to two tin cans on a string to prevent the Star Whackers from intercepting their phone calls. In a strange turn of events, it looks like Randy and Evi might have actually had someone listening to their phone calls.
Evi Quaid spoke to Page Six, telling them that everything she and Randy said about being bugged, hacked, and tracked “has been proven true.” Randy and Evi claim to have been the victims of wiretapping by private investigator Anthony Pellicano and Sgt. Mark Arneson of the LAPD. Both Arneson and Pellicano are currently serving prison sentences for illegal wiretapping.
The Quaids claim that they learned of the wiretapping after discovering they were listed as victims in a recently settled class action lawsuit that was first filed against Sgt. Arneson and the LAPD in 2006. Evi says that no one informed them that they were listed in the lawsuit (possibly because their names were reportedly misspelled) until after it was settled.
A court is expected to finalize the settlement at the end of the month, with 345 victims receiving an estimated $827.82 each. That kind of money could buy Randy and Evi new sex masks, but they’re not getting any of it. Evi says she and Randy opted out of the list of lawsuit victims. They refuse to accept the settlement because they want to know exactly what happened.
Page Six says Evi spoke to them from an “undisclosed location.” They asked Evi where she and Randy are currently located, but she refused to answer. The last time we checked, Randy and Evi were in Canada still.
I wonder what kind of information was collected from Randy and Evi’s alleged wiretaps. I can’t be sure, but I’d be willing to bet there’s at least a couple hours of Randy arguing with Goody customer service about all the combs that broke on the day he decided to finally attempt to groom his beard.
