Miss any of The Big Jim and Anna Show this morning? Here's what happened... in Cliff Note form:
HONDA OF WESTPORT 7:40 COUPLE'S COURT: CO-WORKERS
Carlie called in to complain that her co-worker Steven is a bronie. He
decorates his office with My Little Pony dolls and pictures. She says he's
a monster and that it's inappropriate for the workplace. Ultimately the
audience decided that Steven is free to do with what he wants in his own
work space and that he's not hurting anyone.
Kate Gosselin took her 13-year-old twin daughters Cara and Mady on the
"Today" Show yesterday to set the record straight about how it was growing
up being on a reality show. It was so incredibly awkward.
American Idol is back with Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Junior and Keith
Urban as judges. So far, three Connecticut women have tickets to Hollywood-
Hayley Pettinato, 17, from Sandy Hook, CT
Amaryllis Rodriguez, 24, of East Hartford, CT
Erin Christine, 27, of Madison CT
They were all great, but who really was most entertaining was a guy named
James Earl from Norwich- He performed a duet... with himself.
Three People Having a Worst Week Than You
1. William Bradley from Clinton was arrested this week after he posted a
YouTube video showing the extensive marijuana garden he had grown in his
home. Of course your initial reaction is to think "What an idiot"- but
turns out he has terminal cancer and he wants to give away his pot to
people who need it for medical reasons- Probably still not the best idea
though to post your drug factory on YouTube though. More here.
2. Think you're having a bad week? How about the employee working at a
Bristol gas station this past weekend when he was robbed... The thief
threatened the worker... with a fork. He demanded money and then fled on
foot. Can you imagine that call with 911- I was just robbed- Did he
have a weapon sir? Yes, it was a fork? Was is silverware or plastic? Whole story here.
3. A Texas man was arrested for holding up a homemade sign warning motorists of an upcoming police trap. He went to court and was found guilty of the misdeamnor. All about this craziness here.
TRIPLE SHOT OF INFO ESPRESSO:
