Prince Harry is not the only high profile naked man


What has Prince Harry, country singer Randy Travis and Kony 2012 co-founder Jason Russell have in common? The ability to make news looking the way they did, when they popped out of mummy’s whoha.

Randy Travis

Randy Travis gets sprung out of jail

Earlier this month country crooner Randy Travis, was found buck naked, bruised, and smelling of alcohol, lying by the side of a road near his car he had crashed in Tioga, Texas. Police had responded to a call from a convenience store clerk, who said a man had walked in, attempting to buy cigarettes. He then got very hostile with the clerk after she asked how he was going to pay for it.

Travis 52, was charged with driving under the influence along with Obstruction and Retaliation, a felony which means he threatened cops while they attempted to arrest him.

Locals rushed to the jail house to give him money and clothes, but one quick thinking ambulance chasing media hungry attorney, not only brought him a Texas Longhorn cap to wear on his release, he offered up his service. Travis walked out of jail a few hours after his arrest with police issued paper clothes, a Long Horn cap with the lawyer Gary Corely.

This was his second bust this year. His first in February came after he was found incoherent and intoxicated, sitting in his car with a bottle of wine in a Baptist church parking lot in Sanger, Texas. He told cops he’d had a bust up with his girl-friend.

More recently Travis was arrested yet again – early today (Friday 24th) in Texas and again in another church parking lot. This time he wasn’t intoxicated, but was involved in a punch up with his girl friends estranged husband. He was cited for Simple Assault, this time he didn’t go to jail, just issued a ticket.

Travis was very popular in the late 80’s into 90’s and I even got to see him perform once. I read on the internet recently¬† things about him that I’d heard years ago from musicians in Texas who had worked with him in the past and It’s clear to me that country music finally has someone to step into George Jones shoes.

His life seems to have unraveled quite a bit since he traded in his older wife who was also his manager, for an earlier model. I’m guessing the voodoo dolls must be working. Never under estimated the power of an older woman scorned.

Jason Russell

Jason Russell selling a lie

Blond-haired, blue-eyed christian  wannabe white savior and co-founder of Kony 2012, Jason Russell suffered a very public melt-down in his home town of San Diego, California, in March soon after the Kony 2012 video went viral.

A drunk (could also be high on something) Russell was videoed stripping off his clothes one item at a time, until he was down to nothing, as he ran through the streets,weaving around cars ranting obscenities, masturbating, waving and pounding his fists into the pavement like an orangutan. Russell also vandalized cars before he was detained by police who placed a psychiatric hold on him, before they hauled him off to the nearest medical facility.

The Kony 2012 and Russell’s family went into all out spin mode, saying his melt down was a result of stress. His wife Danica said:¬† “We thought a few thousand people would see the film, but in less than a week millions of people around the world saw it. While that attention was great for raising awareness about Joseph Kony, it also brought a lot of attention to Jason. And, because of how personal the film is, many of the attacks against it were also very personal, and Jason took them very hard.”

Me? I guess it’s the price you pay when making money off people you are selling a lie to, but some have speculated he’s in the closet unable to come out because of his muddled christian convictions and his family. I’m guessing these are the sort of people who will send boys and men to be “deprogrammed” of their homosexuality.

Then there was Harry

You know until Wednesday morning, I believed there really were Russian gangs in Vegas who harvested human organs to sell on the black-market. Laugh all you want at me, but I first heard of them at least a decade ago, then I saw something on CSI : Las Vegas or was it Law and Order. Still laughing? It’s plausible is it not? Any way, according to several sites including Snopes it’s an urban legend:

“Yet another noteworthy change saw the businessman version of the legend seemingly localize to Las Vegas. No longer told as happening in Your Town, USA, this flavor of the myth appeared to have taken up permanent residence in Sin City, the place where Bad Things Happen To The Unwary (especially “the unwary” who were seen as having deservedly brought it upon themselves, married men intent upon getting up to some play-for-pay hanky-panky). In this “Las Vegas” version, the man was drugged in his hotel room by the very woman he’d brought up there with him, the ubiquitous Vegas hooker”.

Thankfully Harry’s kidneys are safe, tho I’m willing to bet there will be more fall out from girls with exaggerated stories and claims wanting to make a fast buck, or as someone suggested to me, there even may even be worse, like a paternity suit….hey it happened to Justin Bieber….there are some real nutters out there.

What I want to know is where were his minders? I posted Harry’s naked pics about an hour after TMZ did, in the wee hours of Wednesday morning and asked where his minders were. It’s anyone’s guess but I reckon a few days away from home in sin city, pool parties, willing girls and booze was way too much temptation for a couple of wide-eyed cops from London to turn down. They aren’t above a bit of slap and tickle I can assure you. Remember the Secret Service fiasco in Colombia?

I got more than my 65p per year in entertainment this week, a lot less than my monthly Sky bill.
