Update: Richard Hatch is in jail again!

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 19th 2009 9:29AM
HatchJust yesterday I posted the video of Richard Hatch's appearance on Today. Now just a day later the Survivor champ is in jail again.

Hatch's sister is saying that the reason why Hatch is in jail is because of the interview with Matt Lauer. There are no details yet on why he would be sent to jail because he talked to someone on a morning talk show (he did the interview from his home so he wasn't violating his home-confinement sentence) but his sister says that when the police came to take him, that's the reason the officer gave.

Richard Hatch says he was sent to jail because ... he's gay?!

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 18th 2009 3:41PM
Richard HatchRichard Hatch, the winner of the very first Survivor, was sent to jail in 2006 for not paying taxes on his winning from the show (and a radio talk show gig) and also got time for perjury. But he says that's not the real reason he was sent to jail.

Hatch said in an interview today on Today that the court system in the United States is set up to be against gays, and he believes that if he was heterosexual he wouldn't have gone to jail. Hatch is currently out of prison and confined to his home. He's getting out on October 7 but wants to be released now.

Bridezillas bride now in jail

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 5th 2009 5:30PM
The interesting thing about this news report below isn't that a reality show star is in jail. That happens all the time. The interesting thing is the fact that the bride and her family are saying that everything you see on WE's Bridezillas is scripted and that she's not really like that.

She was put in jail partly because of her behavior on the show, but if this "aspiring actress" was just acting, what does that mean for the case?

Hulk Hogan to join his son in jail?

by Kristin Sample, posted Jun 15th 2008 8:04PM
Hulk HoganNow, that Nick Hogan is cozied up in a new cell for his prison sentence, his father might be joining him. VH1's Matthew Muro is reporting that Linda Hogan, the Hulkster's estranged wife, wants to send the former pro-wrestler to jail for not paying his portion of a Las Vegas condo, a property worth 4.2 milion dollars. If Linda gets her wishes, Hulk Hogan would be put in Pinellas County Jail in Florida, the very same jail that holds his son.

VH1 offers the following as reasons why Hulk has not paid his bills: "Is he short on cash? Probably not. Is he planning to hit the slammer intentionally to protect little Nick? No way. Or could it be that he's trying to cut off Linda's cash flow so that she can't lavish any more gifts on her 19-year-old boy toy? Bingo!!"

Viewers suffering from Paris Hilton overload

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 16th 2007 3:57PM
paris hiltonGood news, people! It turns out that there can be too much Paris Hilton. I was beginning to get worried there for a second after the daily news updates during her jail term and then all the attention she has received since getting out. One place she's not getting attention is on E!, where her show, The Simple Life, is pulling in crappy ratings.

E! execs said they had hoped that all the mayhem surrounding her stupid stint in jail would garner interest in the show. One exec thinks that people are more interested in what's going on with Paris Hilton right now, rather than what she's doing on a contrived "reality" show. I'm hoping the real reason is that she has finally outstayed her welcome. Over-saturated the market, if you will.

The low ratings mean that E! is seriously considering not bringing back The Simple Life for a fifth season. Hallelujah!

MSNBC anchor refuses to do Paris Hilton story - VIDEO

by Anna Johns, posted Jun 28th 2007 6:23PM
mika brzezinski; msnbc; paris hiltonSo now we're talking about people who refuse to talk about Paris Hilton.

MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski came really close to flipping out on air the other day when her producers kept placing the Paris Hilton story as her lead during the Morning Joe show. She was egged on/patronized by Joe Scarborough and his preppy-looking sidekick.

As you'll see in the video I placed after the jump, Mika starts out really pissed off and then starts to stage a coup on air.

Paris: The Morning After

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 28th 2007 11:01AM

ParisDid you see Paris Hilton on Larry King Live last night? Here's the transcript. Jeez, she really did nothing to help her cause, eh? She seems honestly, sincerely, and deeply clueless. And as a guy, I don't even find her hot or appealing. She has the personality of a wicker chair. I found all of her talk about wanting to help people and learning her lesson and "reading the Bible" completely unconvincing.

After the jump is a roundup of what the internet is saying today about her appearance.

NBC denies $1 million offer for Hilton interview

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 22nd 2007 3:02PM

paris hiltonTo answer the question posed in Bob's previous post, no, NBC News did not offer to pay Paris Hilton one million dollars for an interview.

Previously, the New York Post had claimed NBC had outbid ABC for the interview, but NBC News denies this, saying they have never paid for an interview and never will. Still, other networks remain skeptical since Hilton's people have allegedly told them that NBC's Today already has the first interview locked down between Hilton and Meredith Vieira.

Even Christopher Hitchens is writing about Paris Hilton

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 12th 2007 4:01PM

Paris HiltonI always look forward to what Christopher Hitchens has to say. I don't always agree with him (for example, his Vanity Fair piece saying that female comedians aren't funny was just stooopid), but he's an intelligent guy and always has a unique take on politics, history, and culture. And now he has written an article for Slate on the Paris Hilton case.

Should he even be writing about someone like the Simple Life star, when he himself admits that the case has been covered way too much? He confronts this paradox, but I still wonder if he succeeds in defending his choice to write about her (though I don't really think he needs to defend it).

But the piece is interesting. Hitchens admits he has seen the Hilton sex video, says he doesn't like Sarah Silverman (big shock), and thinks that the treatment Hilton is getting "stinks" and that she should be left to live the life she has been given.

mynetworktvI know most of you have been kept awake at night by disturbing thoughts that there just might not be enough reality television. Thankfully, the folks over at the FOX-owned MyNetworkTV have heard your cries in the night and are developing some new (and not so new) reality shows.

First, the short-lived NBC series Meet my Folks is coming back with the same format of parents deciding who their children should date.

There's also Jail, a new series from John Langley, the creator of Cops. As the name suggests, this series will look at life in prisons all over the United States.

Sixteen people going to prison who aren't Paris Hilton

by Adam Finley, posted May 16th 2007 4:02PM

paris hiltonSince I write about the TV industry, it's impossible for me to avoid this whole "Paris Hilton prison thing" no matter how hard I try.

According to a recent report, Hilton is "distraught" about serving her sentence. I'm not quite sure why that's news. It seems to me that every single person ever sentenced to prison was probably pretty upset about it. If the headline had read, "Paris Hilton Thrilled About Going to Prison," that would be something worth reading, I would imagine. I'd certainly stop and pick up that issue in the checkout lane.
