ShamWow guy arrested

ShamWowYou'll never look at infomercials the same way again.

The ShamWow pitchman, whose real name is Vince Shlomi, was arrested in South Beach in Florida for getting into an altercation at a hotel. Seems that he paid $1000 for the services of a prostitute for an evening, and when he started to kiss her, she bit his tongue and wouldn't let go! So he started to punch her several times until she let go of his tongue. He ran to the lobby and had hotel workers call the cops.

It's not the first time the prostitute was arrested, but she's thinking about suing Shlomi for the incident. I guess she didn't love his nuts. Charges against both of them have been dropped.

This actually happened last month, according to The Smoking Gun, which has all of the details (of course), including Shlomi's mug shot. They even have an interview with the woman involved.

Too bad, he could have been big but he's probably not famous enough to get out of beating a hooker even if she was a crazy whore. It's quite sad to see that even famous guys still have to pay for it. Porno looks better and better every day...

I dream of the day when stories like this will not be considered news-worthy.

There are few things worse than the idiots that come onto TV blogs and post things like "how is this newsworthy?" Here's a tidbit for you: you're on a freaking TV blog. This isn't CNN, this isn't Walter Cronkite. Get over yourself.

Unfortunately the TVS comments platform is not conducive to flame wars.

Here's something that's worse than the "un-newsworthies": critics armed with straw men and non-sequiturs. I never said it was not newsworthy. It is made newsworthy by the public who devour this tabloid garbage. My plea was for a world where no one cares about the personal life of a television pitchman.

Your argument about this being a TV blog is irrelevant. TVS is not the first place I saw that story. I know for a fact that it was reported on MSNBC. I expect it was reported on Red Eye or some such show on Fox News. It very well could have been on CNN.
