Cardi B is very famous, and usually that comes with the kind of hubris that assumes you won’t be going to jail, no matter how grand the jury is that recently indicted you on fourteen charges. But Cardi has another ace up her sleeve that she thinks will keep her out of jail. And that’s her almost one-year-old daughter Kulture Kiari.
Class With The Countess could be revised to Clink With The Countess! Luann de Lesseps, titleless and twice-divorced, has been known more for her “Don’t be uncool” drunken antics as of late, but her latest run-in with the law could have her using the same line on a parole officer. Continue reading
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.
