Would you watch a Chris Brown reality show?

I don’t even think my masochist side would allow me to hate watch a Chris Brown reality show, but BET is apparently desperate to secure a deal for a show on the asshole’s life and crimes. Turns out, a lot of people are in the same boat as me in terms of not wanting to have to look at him on their TV screens, but where we differ is that plenty of people in the network’s focus group would tune in just to watch him fuck up, as he obviously would.

From TMZ:

BET is gunning to air a Chris Brown reality show … and they’ve already held focus groups to find out if viewers will flock to their sets or stay away.

Multiple sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … BET has made it clear to several production companies … the network would absolutely air a Chris Brown reality series, chronicling his life after jail.

We’re told several production companies are angling to sign Chris, but so far that hasn’t happened.  If it does, we’re told the show will get on the air.

A focus group was held Tuesday in the San Fernando Valley … asking participants if they’d watch a reality show in which Chris tries to stay on the straight and narrow — free from violence and drugs.

We’re told the group — comprised entirely of African American females — was split, but the majority said they’d watch to see if Chris would screw up.

What do you think – would you watch it?

Chris Brown won’t accept a plea deal in his latest assault case

chris brown

Chris Brown was only recently released from prison, but he still has to face up to his Washington DC assault case. Prosecutors were willing to work with him, for some odd reason, and offer him a plea deal, but Chris is too arrogant to ever admit any wrongdoing, and he knows he’s never had to pay for anything he’s done before, so he’s going to try his luck by going to trial.

From TMZ:

TMZ caught up with Brown as he darted into his lawyer’s office for a wardrobe change before his D.C. court appearance.

Chris was close to copping a plea but the deal fell apart because the prosecutor and Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, couldn’t agree on a statement of fact about the events leading to the alleged assault.

Chris has said all along … he didn’t attack the alleged victim last year outside a hotel.

If Chris had pled guilty to assault, he would not have to serve any additional time in jail.  Now it looks like he’s going to trial so jail is on the line again.

A trial date has been set for September.  Brown’s bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, has already been convicted of the assault.

Even though he’s promised to clean up his act, I think he could use a bit more time behind bars, so hopefully this trial doesn’t go quite the way he’s sure it will (and for good reason – he’s never really been punished seriously before anyway).

Of course Justin Bieber and Chris Brown are recording a song together

justin bieber chris brown

When two assholes exist in the world, it’s only natural that they gravitate towards one another. I’m assuming there’s a certain magnetism there, a force pulling them together in ways neither of them can resist. That must be what happened with Justin Bieber and Chris Brown, who are apparently in the studio recording a song together, because of course they are.

As JB posted on his Instagram with the photo: “Studio, me and CB did 1 for the fans.”

Well, aren’t we all so lucky? Akon was apparently around for some reason, as well, so maybe he’ll pop up on the song to do… something. Who knows?

Also, apparently they have worked together before on a song called ‘Next to You’, for Chris’s album F.A.M.E in 2011 – go figure. Maybe they can do a whole album together and then go on tour together and then go into outer space together and never come back.

Chris Brown might be back in jail sooner than we thought

Chris Brown appears for a probation progress hearing at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center in Los Angeles

Chris Brown was recently released from prison, whereupon he promised to clean up his act and never go back behind bars again. However, he may not have a choice. There’s still that pesky Washington DC assault case that needs to be heard, and the prosecutor is pushing for an early trial date to hopefully get his ass back in a cell quickly.

From TMZ:

As TMZ first reported … despite his admission of violating his Rihanna probation, Brown maintains he didn’t specifically admit guilt in the D.C. assault case.

But TMZ has obtained documents filed today by the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia … asking a judge to now make June 25 the start date for the trial … instead of just a status conference.

The prosecutor disagrees with Brown’s assertion … and says his admission DOES count as an admission of guilt in this case, and therefore the trial should begin without any further delay.

If the judge agrees, Brown will be back in a D.C. court before the end of the month.

Unfortunately, he’s rich and famous, which means he’s probably going to get away with this one with maybe some time added onto his probation and a “stern warning” (ask Lindsay Lohan for more details on that one). I suppose it’s at least nice to know that there are some people out there who aren’t impressed with this asshole and think he should be punished for his behaviour.

Chris Brown’s going to clean his act up, apparently

Chris Brown just got out of jail after spending a couple of months “in the clink” as they (“they” being no one but Michael Scott) say. He wasn’t happy being there, but he’s overjoyed at being out and wants to make sure he never gets in that situation again… so he’s going legit, guys. That’s right – Chris Brown is getting on the straight and narrow!

From TMZ:

Sources close to Chris tell TMZ … the singer is making a Lindsay-type pledge — to stay away from drugs and bad people, especially those connected to gangs.

Chris seems to be blaming part of his problems — which landed him in jail for 108 days — on the people with whom he was hanging.  But he’s also acknowledging his problems with violence were largely his doing.  Doctors believe his erratic behavior was largely the result of bipolarity.  He’s now on meds and doctors say he’s now stabilized.

Brown says his singular focus now is music and he has privately told his label he will not screw up again.

LOL, okay, let’s go with that. I give him 90 days before he’s messed up again – punched a wall, threw a chair, ripped his shirt off in a Hulk-style rage… you get the picture.

Chris Brown is out of jail!

chris brown

This is a day of celebration/mourning depending on who you are (his mother/the world), because Chris Brown is out of jail! He was recently sentenced to another four months behind bars, where he’s been since March, but he’s out early for time served, of course.

Here’s the scoop from TMZ:

Despite being sentenced on May 9 to 131 days in jail, Brown was sprung around midnight after serving 108 days.

Breezy was actually sentenced to a year behind bars, but got credit for 116 days he spent in rehab, and another 59 days behind bars.

Brown was thrown back behind bars because a judge ruled that Brown had violated his probation in the Rihanna case. He could have been sentenced to as much as four years.

Brown still has his D.C. assault trial looming. That should begin in the next few months.

Well, unfortunately I think the glory days are over – he won’t be sent back to prison after the assault case, I don’t think (though that would be a dream come true) and he can go back to terrorizing the masses. Of course, given Brown’s history, it’s only a matter of time until he fucks up again.

Chris Brown sentenced to another 4 months in jail… but will he serve it?

Chris Brown has been sitting in a jail cell for the past couple of months, and I love it. I was really hoping he was going to stay there once a judge heard his latest assault case – which, by the way, is yet another violation of his 2009 probation from when he beat the shit out of Rihanna – but alas, that’s not the case, most likely. Chris saw a judge for the probation violation this week, and while he was sentenced to a further four months behind bars, loopholes mean he might be out by the end of the week.

From TMZ:

Brown was in court Friday afternoon … where he admitted he violated his probation by getting into a fight with a dude in Washington D.C.

That’s all the judge needed to hear.  He sentenced Chris to 1 year in jail.  HOWEVER, Chris got credit for 116 days he spent in rehab, and another 59 days behind bars.  That leaves 131 days in the pokey.

But we’re told the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept has been releasing inmates sentenced to 1 year after 240 days.  And here’s the thing.  Chris gets credit for 2 days for every 1 he served behind bars, so when you add it up, he has credit for 234 days — 6 days shy.  So he could be released in days.

The judge could have gone a lot harder — 4 years in prison.  But Chris got a break because the judge took into account he was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which could account for some of the violence.

The judge also ordered Chris to attend therapy sessions with a shrink 2 times a week.   And he must submit to random drug testing 3 times a week.

Ugh, so ridiculous. HOW MANY TIMES has he been ordered to see a therapist, do community service, go to anger management, etc? Sorry, but no amount of counseling is going to turn this piece of shit into a decent human being, and I feel pretty confident saying that.

The one hope is that his DC assault case is yet to be heard – that’ll happen early next month, so he could end up right back where he started.
