NBC News is reporting O.J. Simpson could be released from jail as early as Monday, and I’m waiting for Hertz to pull the ultimate #TBT by announcing today it will provide official prison transportation. Kidding, if anything, Kris Jenner will have Khloe Kardashian greet him at the gates for a season 10 mid-season cliffhanger!
Perhaps the most unfortunate but aptly named ho in town, Anthony Weiner found out Monday he’ll be spending just under two years in the pokey.
TMZ says the former congressman and estranged husband of Hillary Clinton’s trusted aide Huma Abedin pled guilty in May for sexting, Skype sex-ing, and being generally cyber nasty with a 15-year-old North Carolina girl he met on Twitter. Suddenly the “A” part in all those “A/S/L?” messages I got in AOL gay chatrooms back in the stone ages seems like an incredibly smart move. Huma filed for divorce from Anthony the same day he pled guilty.
Today was the day that toe-tapping off-stage monster Abby Lee Miller was expected to check into the big house to serve a one-year prison sentence for bankruptcy fraud. Entertainment Tonight says she turned herself in at 12:05pm, two hours before her 2pm deadline. Now if you want to be scratchy-voiced screeched at for your lazy turn-out, you’re going to have to get in your car and take a trip to cell block D (or wherever they’re housing her money-scamming self).
This has happened before, but this time the “Former TV show cast member turned massive huge life mess” we’re talking about is Jeremy Jackson, aka Hobie Buchannon from Baywatch.
In October 2015, we were reminded that Jeremy still had a problem with stabbing people after he stabbed a woman near his home in Los Angeles. Jeremy was trying to steal the woman’s boyfriend’s car, and when she stepped in, he stabbed her in her back, arm, and leg, before running away. TMZ says Jeremy recently took care of that arrest and it ended in a plea deal. Jeremy has been sentenced to 270 days in L.A. County jail and five years probation. He will also be required to complete 52 anger management classes and 52 AA meetings.
If Jeremy hadn’t plead guilty, he could have faced up to seven years in jail.
The judge gave Jeremy 109 days jail credit, which means he’ll be spending 161 days locked up. TMZ says good behavior could have him released in May. If he completes everything, his felony charge could be dropped to a misdemeanor.
I know jail time is jail time, but a month? For stabbing someone multiple times after you get caught trying to make off with their car? That seems a little light to me. Maybe this is yet another case of “Famous TV/movie person gets a slap on the wrist for breaking the law in Los Angeles.” If so, then as a society we need to agree to set some standards for that. Being Hobie from Baywatch should only grant you so many free passes.
In today’s “Why You Actin’ Like An Ass?” news, is infamous sex inventor Trey Songz and his arrest in Detroit, Michigan on Wednesday night.
AP News reports that the Say Ahh singer (real name: Tremaine Neverson) had a whole meltdown at the Joe Louis Arena (during FM 98 WJLB’s Big Show at the Joe) once he was informed by organizers that he needed to vacate the stage by 11:30pm. Initially, he taunted them by saying stupid shit like “I wish a bitch WOULD turn my mic off!” Well, wishes come true! They shut that shit off. And instead of getting his ass off the stage, Trey rebelled in true Half-Past My Fifteen Minutes fashion.
Stare into the face of
the abyss Anthony Michael Hall and try not to see your own worst fears staring back at you. A couple months ago AMH found himself in an altercation that turned physical. Since he’s the poster boy for Booze Bloated Gas Bags International, the former teen dream used his fists on a neighbor who had the gaul to say the words you must never, ever speak: Hey man, you left the gate open. Chilling. AMH couldn’t handle that kind of provocation so he started pushing people around and now he’s looking at a maaaaybe spending the better part of a decade behind bars, but probably not.
