Ok, stop me if you’ve heard this one: an ex-cop accused of killing his fourth wife gets engaged a fifth time and tries to get a job in a brothel on a reality t.v. show (video), but before he can, he's arrested today for killing his third wife.

Of course, his fifth engagement was just a stunt. Or was it? Whatever. The world's greatest dad has plenty of ladies lining up to take his wife's place(s).

I've not heard that one! How does it end? With some dude calling Superman a jerk?

Wasn't this a Lifetime movie starring Treat Williams?

Well, if that brothel thing can't work out then I'm sure they can monetize his trial some way.

What the hell? Also, this was weird

But Kelly told Early Show co-anchor Julie Chen Savio's father, Henry Savio, and sister, Anna Doman, don't stand to gain "one penny from the suit. "They have no financial interest in the lawsuit whatsoever. It's only for the estate and Kathleen's two minor children."

If the suit succeeds, Kelly explained, "All the assets that should have gone to the children originally, all the marital assets and things like that, would be properly segregated for the children. And Mr. Peterson would be taken to task and labeled for what he had done, causing (Savio's) death."
...
Thomas Peterson told Chen he thinks the suit is "ridiculous. Because what they're trying to do, they're trying to take money from my dad and basically give it back to us. Now, do the math. He's got everything put into us as it is. So it just doesn't make sense to me."

Thomas says he doesn't remember ever even meeting his grandfather, Henry Savio, and hasn't seen his aunt, Doman, in six years, adding, "They've made no attempt of contacting me. So I haven't really seen them."
...
And Kelly, the lawyer for the Savios, added, "By all accounts these young men loved their mother. Their mother loved them. To see them thrust on national television to talk about her untimely death right now is unsettling, too."
Uh, you're the one who brought them into this.

Big story out here in Chicago. Like with Blagojevich. It looks like they might get away, capitalize on their infamy, maybe be on reality t.v. ...
Then - No! Rejected!

Ok, stop me if you’ve heard this one [before]...

Nothing's changed, I still love you... only slightly less than I used to, my love.

I was delayed, I was way-laid. An emergency stop; I smelt the last ten seconds of life. I crashed down on the crossbar and the pain was enough to make a shy, bald, buddhist reflect and plan a mass murder. Who said I'd lied to her ?

Wow, I don't know if it's intentional or not, but the still frame of the video the AP uses shows him with quite a facial expression. And I hadn't heard about Blagojevech being invited on a reality show in Costa Rica. This is nuts. Looks like there's a real glut in the reality show market.

Not that I would expect Dennis Hof to be a classy guy, but considering hiring a suspected murderer to work at your brothel for ratings? That's lower than low.

The only upside: No one asks, "Is that -dersen or -terson?" when you have the last name of multiple killers.

What if his son is the killer, like Dexter? The dad is trying to protect the kid, who keeps killing his wives! He gets all mad at the kid, but he can't help loving the little scamp!

... investigators tracked more than 1,100 leads in Savio's death and the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, amassing some 500 gigabytes of digital information.

People kill other people all the time.

But usually they aren't offered roles on reality shows as a direct result of them being suspects.

Though if this trend continues, we will be one step closer to the future as predicted by the movie the Running Man.

And we really should to whatever possible to prevent that. It would be pretty horrible, what with the bad costumes and ridiculous villain concepts.

You know different sites have different needs

It's obvious you hate this though it's done nothing wrong
You've never even read it so what could it have done?
