In deference to Walt, I’ll mention the Steph case

Buddy Hackett’s wife Stephanie has applied for the pre-trial Alcohol Education program (“Drunk ED”), as is the right of every first-time offender of Connecticut’s DUI laws.  Admission is discretionary, but I’m guessing she’ll get in, especially if, as news reports have it, she’ll be shipping off to a residential rehab facility again.

While The Steph is a celebrity, and her attorney, my friend Phil Russell is an extremely abled advocate, anyone, even shoe clerks, can apply for this program, and assuming there are no personal injuries to other persons (telephone poles don’t count), they are usually accepted. No particular special treatment is going on here.

    But she still gets arrested and gets a DUI on her record, right?

    If not, that right there is just wrong.

      If this is her 1st DWI, she gets into program. Prob 2 accidents on same night will count for 1 DWI. I think if you complete program and stay out of trouble for a year there is no DWI on her record.

    • What happens is that, while you can truthfully say you haven’t been arrested for DUI, a record of your participation is kept, and you aren’t allowed another such get out of jail free pass in any of the fifty-seven states.

    I’m going into the program too. Alcohol Education Program, from the article. I don’t actually drink, I just feel that it’s my calling – I can (friends with) benefit(s) from the experience. Walt, have time to join?

    Btw – if you read the article, she got into another accident before the reported one. It appears that she was pole banging before she played bumper butt. Steph’s a little energizer bunny.

    Dude –

    Who is this Phil Russel guy, and how well do you know him? He shouldn’t be representing Steph. I googled him, and his CV says he was President of THE BAR ASSOCIATION!! The reason she is in this mess is because she was hanging out in a BAR – WITHOUT ME!!

    So tell your buddy Phil TO BACK OFF, RECUSE HIMSELF, and send Steph my way. I will mend both her mental and physical scars from this unfortunate incident. I can even show her how to fix the pole!

    She looks cute in black, doesn’t she? Which reminds me, it’s Black History Month!

    What do black lesbians have for breakfast? COCOA MUFFS!!

    Your Pal,

      I think you should buy an Axl Rose wig and work on your moves while watching GNR videos. Maybe you two can karaoke. Post a youtube video and see if she comes calling.

    Dude –

    There is not much that shocks me. Really. I have seen and done it all. But this proves reality is, IN FACT, stranger than fiction. I couldn’t make this shit up if I tried.

    Did you know? Can you believe? I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP!! There is a “Greenwich Realtor Hall of FAME”!!!!!?????!!!!!????? I SHIT YOU NOT!

    I had to read it TWICE!! With my mouth agape. It wasn’t the Onion! THIS REALLY EXISTS!!!! Then I did a pee pee dance, and fell to the floor laughing. I may have even sharted myself. I will check in a bit and report back later.

    ARE YOU FRIGGING KIDDING ME? Who thought this up? Who thought this was a good idea? This is faker than the fundraising parties tossed by the Junior Leaguers. Honored for “Lifetime service to the industry”. WHAT INDUSTRY? You don’t work in a steel mill. You don’t even work!

    Where is the Hall located? Is it free admission, or do you charge 6% of whatever I have on me? What criteria do they use to select “Greenwich Realtor Hall of FAME” candidates? JUST TYPING THAT MADE ME LAUGH!! Most egregious listing price? Most silverware stolen at open houses?

    I could do a book on this! You have no idea how happy this makes me!! Don’t realtor’s arms ever get tired from patting themselves on the back?
    And the GAR Evil Princess doesn’t even do the induction? Is it beneath her lofty status?

    Can I nominate you? Better yet, can I write your induction speech? And don’t let them use a run of the mill head bust. I propose this for your statue:

    I AM SO HAPPY!! Only the date with Steph can top this!
    Your Pal,

      My guess is she’s unconscious within the first half hour. Your “date” will be more like Weekend at Bernie’s (your call on Madoff or Sanders) after she Cosbys herself. Trust me, it’ll mean a lot more to you than to her.

    Dude –
    A present awaits you in your spam box.
