Chris Benoit Wikipedia Entry Edited Hours Before Bodies Found

A Wikipedia user has admitted to editing Chris Benoit's entry to mention the death of his wife, Nancy Benoit, 14 hours before police found the bodies of Benoit and his wife and son. The user's IP address was traced to Stamford, Connecticut, home of the WWE's headquarters. Tragically, Benoit strangled his wife and suffocated his son, placing Bibles near their bodies, before hanging himself on his weight machine. Authorities have since raided Dr. Phil Astin's office seeking evidence related to steroid use by Benoit.

Paris Hilton Savagely Cross-Examined by Larry King

Just kidding with the post title. Celebrities like Paris Hilton trying to overcome certain indiscretions such as criminal convictions know that Larry King is not exactly the toughest interviewer on the planet, so they go on his show to try to resurrect their images. Paris lied her way through the interview, saying whatever she thought sounded good. After going on and on about the Bible, she was unable to remember anything at all from the Bible when Larry asked for her favorite passage. After Hilton claimed she's seen others do drugs but never done them herself, an incredulous King, forgetting for the moment that he was supposed to be sucking up to her, asked her again, "Never taken drugs?"

Rock of Love May Take Reality TV to an All-Time Low

Bachelorette Jen Schefft's Advice: Don't Settle

Bachelorette Jen Schefft, former fiancee of The Bachelor Andrew Firestone, has some romantic advice for single women: don't settle. "Settling means being in a relationship that's anything less than you deserve," says the 30-year-old author of Better Single Than Sorry: A No-Regrets Guide to Loving Yourself and Never Settling. "It's being in a relationship that's not exactly right for the sake of being in a relationship."

Regarding her engagement to Firestone, she said,
It wasn't the right fit for sure. I gave up my life. It was something I didn't give a lot of thought to. Just because someone is rich or an heir to this tire fortune doesn't make it a perfect relationship. Some women would have stayed, but no amount of money or status is going to make you happy.

Idiots at Newsweek Suggest Reality TV is Over

The tv critics at Newsweek suggest that reality tv is over. If tv critics knew what audiences liked to watch, they wouldn't be tv critics, they'd be successful producers. There's a reason they're tv critics. The morons in Hollywood can't seem to write enough half-way decent scripts to make prime time watchable, so reality is better than most of the sitcom and drama alternatives. And, let's face it, people like watching other people do stupid stuff.

Poll: Will Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt Get Married?

Reunited: The Real World Vegas

The original Real World Las Vegas season was, depending on your point of view, either the best or the worst season in Real World history. It was a defining season in which cast members focused less on incessant whining about perceived problems in the house and more on having a good time partying and hooking up.

On Reunited: The Real World Vegas, the dynamics have changed since the original season. Originally, Frank was the nice guy who fell for Trishelle within minutes of meeting her, only to be disillusioned moments later when he discovered she was a slut. Now, the new Frank is much more relaxed and wants only to drink a ton and sleep with as many girls as possible. He and Steven seem awfully tight, so much so that I'm half expecting the two of them to end up in bed together some night if Frank can't get any action from the ladies.

On an unrelated note, let me give some unsolicited advice to the Maloof brothers, owners of The Palms. Banning Steven from the pool was asinine. What did he do? He may have thrown some ice at someone and then thrown her into the pool? Who cares? This is supposed to be Vegas, baby, not a Holidome in Peoria. Man up, Maloof brothers, and let Steven and Frank have fun together.

Trishelle is now bleach blonde and considers herself to be an "actress." She demonstrated for the girls how she learned to pole dance for her latest role. This was at the post-marriage, post-babies bachelorette party she threw for Brynn, who has gone from a dysfunctional go-go dancer to a dental hygienist wife and mother. Trishelle's party for her was awkward and forced, with far too many male strippers involved.

Alton, Irulan and Arissa have some major issues. During the original season, Irulan was in an "open relationship" and took advantage of that time to hook up with Alton. Apparently, after the show, Alton and Irulan dated for three years and were also close to Arissa until something happened in a bathroom. Arissa claims that Alton tried to kiss her, but he denies it, bringing to mind his bragging about a threesome and subsequent denial of it during the original season.

On the same night as Trishelle's bachelorette party for Brynn, the guys throw a bachelor party for Brynn's husband Austin in another suite -- the hardwood suite. Girls are there when the guys arrive, but it turns out they just play the guys in a lame game of basketball and leave. Later that night, Frank manages, separately, to make both Irulan and Arissa lose their minds and storm out of the suite for completely overblown reasons.

Sunset Tan: Countdown to Bankruptcy

I assume that Sunset Tan is a privately held company, otherwise I would sell its stock short in a second. What a bunch of morons at this company, from top to bottom. The E! show by the same name follows around a bunch of weird people who work in a tanning salon. Not surprisingly, these aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer. One employee, Erin, while spraying a nude Jose Canseco's ex-wife with tanning spray, thinks it's okay to ask her how much she paid for her home and who did her breast implants. Then, the dumber of the two owners, Jeff Bozz, has all the employees, some of whom are young, over for a party and decides to skinny dip in front of everyone. Some of the employees join in, while others are turned off. Britney Spears comes in for a tan, looking like the trailer trash girl that she is. The two ditzy blonde employees, known as the Olly Girls for some witty reason -- I think because their first names are Molly and Polly or something similar -- are there for only one reason, to meet celebrities, but the best they've done so far is Chris Kattan. As dumb as the Olly Girls are, they were able to come up with a play on words with Kattan's name and the word "tan." The two owners take Nick, apparently the only employee in the entire organization with half a brain, to Las Vegas and strongly imply that they'll give him a big promotion to run the new Las Vegas tanning booth at The Palms if he'll just dump his girlfriend. Erin visits her hometown in Oklahoma to see an ex-boyfriend. He tells her he loves her and wants to make out with her and that, oh by the way, he's also engaged to someone else.

Gene Simmons: Family Jewels Renewed for Third Season

A&E has said yes to a third season of "Gene Simmons: Family Jewels," upping its order to 24 half-hours from last season's 20. The decision was an easy one: "Jewels" is A&E's second highest rated series ever in adults 18-49 and 25-54, behind only "Dog the Bounty Hunter." "Jewels" did even better in the second season than the first, leaping by 15% in total viewers to a 1.5 million average and climbing by 11% in adults 18-49 and by 8% in 25-54.

Woman Sues Jack Osbourne over Armed and Famous Reality Show

A woman whose home was mistakenly raided by police during the filming of CBS reality show Armed & Famous is seeking $1 million in damages in a lawsuit recently filed in federal court. "This is not a dime to CBS," the plaintiff's Indianapolis civil rights attorney Michael Sutherlin said. "If they want to make a circus of police shows, they ought to be held accountable." The lawsuit, filed last week in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, in Indianapolis, lists as defendants celebrity cop Jack Osbourne, Muncie officer Michael Edwards, Muncie Police Chief Joe Winkle, Mayor Dan Canan, CBS Broadcasting Inc., and production company Good TV Inc. It alleges that around 12:30 a.m. Dec. 12, Muncie police officers -- including SWAT team members and Osbourne -- entered Lyndsay Clements's home in the 800 block of West Main Street under the belief that she was harboring a fugitive. They handcuffed Clements in her nightgown for 30 minutes, according to Sutherlin, and ransacked her apartment while production crews filmed the activity.
