Are you ready for some insanity?

When Hank Williams Jr. stopped by Fox & Friends this morning to discuss politics (absurd in itself), few could have imagined the views that the country music singer and longtime voice of Monday Night Football espouses.

Williams described this year’s “Golf Summit” between President Barack Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner as “One of the biggest political mistakes ever.” Sadly, that was Hank's high water mark for intelligence:

When the co-hosts asked Williams to explain, he offered this scintillating insight: “Come on! Come on! It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu!”

To the Fox News panel's credit, they were clearly dumbstruck, turned off and unsure of how to respond to such an outrageous comment in a live interview.

Still, you have to question the wisdom of having this guy on your show in the first place. You can't find an intelligent conservative voice to talk politics?

Your take: Is Obama a socialist?

 

UPDATE: ESPN has yanked Williams, saying in a statement: "We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast."

UPDATE #2: ESPN has fired Hank for good. He dubiously claims he quit, citing a violation of the First Amendment, which is just a ridiculous statement. Either way, he's out.

File this under Admissions We Did Not See Coming:

In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, Thomas Jane says he was once homeless and earned money as a man-on-man prostitute.

"When I was a kid out here in L.A., I was homeless. I didn't have any money and I was living in my car," the actor says. "I wasn't averse to going down to Santa Monica Boulevard and letting a guy buy me a sandwich. Know what I mean?"

The Hung star, who been married twice, adds that "you're a lot more open to experimentation as a young man. And for me, being a young artist and broke in Los Angeles, I was exploring my sexual identity."

Does he have any regrets? Nope.

"Until you've tasted the food, you don't know whether you'll like it or not, as my mom always said."

Amanda Knox learned her fate at last as the verdict in her high-profile appeal of a murder conviction was read aloud in an Italian courtroom this evening.

It was overturned. The jury found her not guilty of murder, but guilty of defamation. She was ordered to be set free immediately after her acquittal.

Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, also cleared today, were sentenced to 25 and 26 years in prison following their 2009 convictions.

The 24-year-old student tearfully denied brutally killing roommate Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy, 2007, pleading for freedom earlier Monday.

"I am not what they say I am. I did not kill. I did not rape. I did not steal," Amanda Knox said this morning, her voice trembling with emotion.

It was the most important speech of her life. It showed, and it worked.

"People always ask me, 'who is Amanda Knox?' I am the same person that I was four years ago, exactly the same person," she continued.

"The only thing that now separates me from four years ago is my suffering."

Knox and her family, present in Perugia, Italy, for the verdict, have always claimed that Amanda's imprisonment was a monumental judicial mistake.

Reports already suggest that Ashton Kutcher cheated on Demi Moore last month with at least one woman in San Diego, rumored to be 23-year old Sara Leal.

"Alexis told him Ashton’s room number and when he got there, a bodyguard was at the door who said it was a private party," Naumoff said to The Daily Mail. "Jacques explained he was the boyfriend of one of the girls and was let in.

"He found Ashton in a hot tub on the balcony with Alexis, Sara, a girl called Katie and another girl called Marta. They were all naked. Ashton invited Jacques to join them in the tub."

About a year before she started dating Chaz Bono, Jennifer Ella had an incident that she would just as soon forget. She was arrested and booked on a charge of “battery of an ex-spouse/fiancee/person with a dating relationship.”

Pretty hard core.

Jennifer Ella, Chaz Bono

Often referred to as “simple domestic battery,” the charge means that the perpetrator or attacker can be arrested “even if only the slightest force is used in the incident ... any unwanted physical touching will suffice."

Short story, you don't have to injure the victim to be convicted.

Four years after she was arrested on suspicion of having killed her roommate in Italy, American Amanda Knox pleaded for a jury to overturn the conviction.

"People always ask who is Amanda Knox? I am the same person I was four years ago. But I have lost a friend. I have lost my faith in Italian police," she said.

"I am paying with my life for something I have not done. Four years ago I didn't know what suffering was," she added, delivering her statement in Italian.

"I did not kill. I did not rape. I did not steal. I was not there."

Amanda Knox Appeals

In her second trial, Knox and co-defendant Raffaele Sollecito are fighting to be acquitted of the murder of Meredith Kercher. They were convicted in 2009.

Prosecutors, meanwhile, have called for their sentences - of 26 and 25 years, respectively - to be increased to life. Two judges and six jurors will decide.

Amanda Knox's appeal has focused largely on DNA evidence found on a knife and on a bra clasp belonging to the victim. They argue it's not enough.

Closing arguments was Knox called "Lucifer-like, demonic and Satanic," but her defense says that like Jessica Rabbit, she's not bad, just "drawn that way."

On Friday, Judge Belvin Perry ordered the release of the infamous video of Casey Anthony's reaction to the news of Caylee Anthony's body being discovered.

It had been sealed throughout the trial because another judge had ruled it to be too inflammatory for a jury. But with the trail over, Perry unsealed the tape.

"There is no reasonable expectation of privacy in jail," he ruled, and with the 25-year-old acquitted of murder, ordered the Casey Anthony jail video released.

Here it is in its grainy entirety:

On the day Caylee's remains were found, Casey sat in jail infirmary, hunched over and rocking back and forth as news of the discovery played on TV.

Casey appears to double over, her hands in her lap, and then appears to breathe heavily. Anthony began hyperventilating, before asking for a sedative.

To many, the significance of the video and Casey Anthony's reaction is that the remains had not yet been identified as those of her missing 2-year-old.

Just another chapter in the year's wildest legal drama. Do you think the jury should have been allowed to see this? Would it have made a difference?

TGIF? Not for Teresa Giudice.

A witness tells Radar Online that this Real Housewife's husband may be cheating on her because he had an allegedly cozy meal with another woman at a T.G.I. Friday's on Tuesday night in Clifton, New Jersey.

The Giudices

Joe and this rumored mistress were "in a booth," the onlooker claims and "were drinking martinis and when the woman finished hers she took a sip out of Joe’s glass, too. They looked like they were having a good time together and laughing with each other."

This isn't the first time Joe has been accused of possessing a wandering eye and/or other body parts. A report last year said the guy likes strippers.

After last week's arrest of Steven Powell - the father-in-law of missing Utah woman Susan Powell - on child porn and voyeurism charges, Steven's son and Susan's husband, Josh Powell, is also the subject of a child porn investigation.

Josh and his two sons had been living in Steven's house.

Powell, Josh and Susan

The Susan Powell case remains open and unsolved.

Steven Powell, 61, was arrested in his Puyallup, Wash., home and booked on suspicion of 14 counts of voyeurism and one count of possessing child porn.

Milton Bradley, a former outfielder who played for seven teams over 12 seasons and was known as much for his volatile temper as for his career OBP of .364, was arrested yesterday.

Milton Bradley Card

As detailed by TMZ, Bradley's wife called 911 around 2 p.m. from Los Angeles and said her husband was chasing her around with a baseball bat. The 33-year old slugger - who was arrested in January for a separate domestic violence act - was subsequently taken into custody and booked for assault with a deadly weapon.

He was released from jail later that night on $30,000 bail.

In 2007, Bradley tore his ACL during an argument with an umpire. He missed the rest of the season.
