That’s ridiculous to make Shia pay $500 for that. It should have been a lot less in his fines. And I feel no sympathy for Wesley Snipes. I think it’s just greedy to have the amount of money that he has, and then avoid paying taxes. If he could write the government 3 -- $5 million dollar checks AFTER he was charged, then he should have thought seriously about paying it to them before that time. It’s his own fault....he could never blame another soul.

you know what i seriously think Wesley has a touch of the 'crazies'. when he was evading the cops on this whole tax thing , he was acting like he was in one of his movies , he was even down in South Africa , got a fake passport, then was trying to hide from being deported there... it was a whole big drama. I just think he has lost it . maybe some jailtime will do him some good - though 3 years?? but i guess it will be in a cushy prison so not bad.

Amy is crazy. Headbutting probably hurts her as much as it hurt the other person.

I think its smoking where no smoking signs are- I'm not surprised about Wesley going to jail with that charge he had... I would have been shocked if he hadn't gone.

Hoped Wesley learned his lesson. NO one can get away from the Feds!! Nick Lachey always agrees to host lame shows.
