Adam Rich: Old and busted (for DWI).

(Fill in your own "new hotness" here).

Hey, things could be worse. Right, Willie Aames? Er, excuse me... BibleMan?

2002-12-18 05:27:50 PM  
wow Coleslaw, I had never heard of Bibleman before. has just given me my laugh for the day

2002-12-18 05:37:57 PM  
This is an obvious publicity stunt. It worked too. I never heard of him before his DUI.
2002-12-18 09:07:39 PM  
Too bad that "Might" magazine isn't around to cover this.

Oh, wait.

w00t! Eight WASNT enough!
2002-12-18 09:12:05 PM  
Guess "Eight is Enough" now refers to the number of drinks he had at the bar.
2002-12-18 09:12:26 PM  
Where do these "has beens" get money for drugs. Working at the same place as Gary Coldman
2002-12-18 09:14:19 PM  
And all this time I thought he fell off the face of the earth
2002-12-18 09:15:23 PM  
It's a classic story. Cute little kid grows up and starts making porn or trying to snort Columbia...

Little bastards.
2002-12-18 09:15:48 PM  
Who does he think he is? Nick Nolte?
2002-12-18 09:18:57 PM  
Ah yes, the next "high profile" Hollyweird-type to enter rehab after whining to a judge about his problems, stardom, pressure, blah blah. Was Robert Downey Jr. in the car with him on the way to pickup Winona Ryder at Saks?
2002-12-18 09:19:39 PM  
Went to the bibleman site. That's just sick.
2002-12-18 09:21:12 PM  
This is what the entertainment business does to kids. Thank Glub I was a failure.
2002-12-18 09:23:44 PM  
I too went to the Bibleman site. Now I have these stupid pictures in my head. Bevets, with a cape, bouncing around on the furniture in his parents basement....
2002-12-18 09:26:36 PM  
if i had grown up in a house with seven other people, i'd be a drunk too.
2002-12-18 09:28:22 PM  
Awww damn!!! Nobody gives 2 SHIATS about you till you FARK up!!
Sometimes I hate the media. No wait. I always hate the media!

In other news, Adam Rich will not be cast as a member of the California Highway Patrol in the upcoming revival of the classic television series "CHiPs."
2002-12-18 09:31:23 PM  
If everybody I ever met associated me with "that cute little boy in that show" I would probably be doing heavy drugs, too.
2002-12-18 09:32:13 PM  
If you want your kid to be child star, why don't you just give him a shot of jack and line of blow yourself and save Guido the LA pusher the trouble. What the fark makes parents think their kids can grow up normally in that environment?

Busted for DWI

DWI? must be an east coast poster.
2002-12-18 09:45:00 PM  
busted twice no less. they let him go from the first dui, then he hits a guardrail or something on the way home from the jail and gets pulled over for dui again. not many people can pull that off.

BashturnWOW! YUCK!

Tom and Abby will sit him down and have a talk and by the time an hour has passed everything will be fine again.

Life is wonderful if you are lucky enough to live on a TV show like our little friend Nicholas.

Hey - not everyone from "Eight is Enough" has gone down the tubes. The guy who played Susan's (the readhead) husband on the show isn't doing too badly right now:

Yep - Ron Perlman!

Avixxen2 - "busted twice no less. they let him go from the first dui, then he hits a guardrail or something on the way home from the jail and gets pulled over for dui again. not many people can pull that off."

Apparently that's his m.o. This from

"In April 1991, Adam smashed a pharmacy window in an attempt to steal drugs. He was arrested and was bailed out by his TV dad, Dick Van Patten. He was almost immediately rearrested, this time for shoplifting. He pled no contest to both charges."

Apparently he needs to hook up with BibleMan and get a sense of conscience or regret... He should at least find a competent criminal to tutor his dumb ass.

Dave Eggers wrote about the faked Rich death in " A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" which was pretty darn good.
