  3. I loved all of those. Including Paris Hilton cry like a bitch on her way to jail.

    But have you seen the Tommy Lee video? OMG. The part where they’re driving shocked me! He’s one “gifted” dude.

  4. Who is Chappaquidaho? Is that a woman or a river? From the picture I’m thinking a river, and that he was hammered and drove his car in, but I’m not sure. Remember, I’m not as OLD as all YOU OLD FARTS :)

    I love “Paris Hilton goes to jail, then doesn’t go, then goes.” That’s perfect, and coupled with Tom Cruise “jumping” the couch, I HAD to smile! You made my day!

    Ah, how I heart Schadenfreude. I too am a snarky bitch so I do tend to feel it on an almost daily basis.

  12. Thanks for the Ted Kennedy link. When I saw it, I was hoping it was a link to the Tommy Lee video. My sister told me to post here and see if you have it :)

  15. [...] Ali at Cheaper Than Therapy… Her lists kill me. Anyone who can come up with a great list like 13 of the Most Schadenfreude-iest Celebrity Scandals gets my vote. And I’m not just saying that because “schadenfreude” is my most favorite word of all time. [...]
