Case Under Review for Reality TV Star Accused of Lewd Act on Underage Relative

Story Published: Sep 5, 2012 at 7:08 AM PDT

Story Updated: Sep 5, 2012 at 10:17 AM PDT

EL CAJON (CNS) – The case against a reality TV star accused of committing a lewd act on an underage female relative remains under review, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Thomas Quinn, 43, was booked into San Diego Central Jail on Aug. 28, posted bail, and was given a court date for arraignment Wednesday. Prosecutors continue to mull over whether charges will be filed, said Tanya Sierra of the District Attorney’s Office.

Quinn, of La Mesa, is featured in the Discovery Channel’s “The Devil’s Ride,” which follows members of the “Laffing Devils” motorcycle club.

He was arrested outside Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa on suspicion of committing a lewd act with a minor, La Mesa police Lt. Matt Nicholass said. Police did not elaborate on why Quinn was at the hospital.

The lieutenant also declined to release the victim’s age or relationship to Quinn but according to published reports, she is his stepdaughter.

Nicholass said the investigation was prompted by a report from the family. Once police received the family’s report, the case was assigned to a child abuse detective.

“That detective conducted a thorough investigation that ultimately led to the arrest of Mr. Quinn,” Nicholass said.

The Discovery Channel show premiered in May and aired six episodes in its first season. It was unclear whether a second season has been ordered. Last week, members of the East County-based “Laffing Devils” told a local media outlet that Quinn was no longer a members of their club.

Laffing Devils

Yes, The Devils Ride is over-the-top and, at times, the Laffing Devils are ridiculous, but that is what is making them a hit for the Discovery Channel.

Another week watching the Laffing Devils on Discovery Channel’s The Devils Ride, and another week wondering, “Are these guys for real?”

As the weeks go forward, the Laffing Devils—and, of course, the show’s producers—keep trying to prove to viewers that, indeed, the Laffing Devils are the real deal: a real San Diego MC. But, somehow, their efforts just keep coming off as, well, set up and fake.

Take for example, Rusty Coones just strolling into the Laffing Devils clubhouse with his band, Attika 7, and setting up to play, unannounced. Sure, the Laffing Devils had completed a repo for him a few weeks earlier, and he was appreciative, but having the respected Hells Angel just strolling around the clubhouse with these guys, unannounced, posing for the cameras? Particularly given the way the Laffing Devils have treated founding father and former prez Gipsy, who Coones set up the repo deal with in the first place and is, one would assume, a friend of Coones. Would Coones, in the real world, really be rewarding Billy the Kid and company for such behavior by dropping by and helping make their first party a hit? Just seemed a bit too produced to have any reality to it.

Of course, fans have to remember, this IS television. Reality television, yes, but television nevertheless. TV shows are going to be posed and hyped and ramped up to provoke viewer interest, whatever the show is; so-called “reality” television is no exception. And, in fact, reality television shows often come off as being less real than straight-out fiction productions, simply because they do involve real people placed in unnatural, unreal situations, making viewers question just how valid the show is overall.

Perhaps the thing that makes viewers question The Devils Ride and the Laffing Devils so vehemently is the way Discovery has promoted the show. Before it appeared, and since, commercials for The Devils Ride have made the show out to be an inside look at a hardcore 1% club—something the Laffing Devils certainly are not, and have never claimed to be. But, because of the advertising, hardcore is what viewers were expecting, and they are disappointed in what they got, and many seem to feel deceived, as well.

Understandable.

Still, there is something engaging about the show. It’s just so over-the-top, it’s hard not to laugh at many of the situations. The Laffing Devils are becoming the slapstick version of the MC and, in TV land, anyway, there is value in that. In this case, a lot of people are outraged at the antics of the Laffing Devils, but a lot of people are watching, as well, making The Devils Ride the latest hit for the Discovery Channel. Some viewers even admit that they keep watching despite themselves. As Huliq reader Rodgers said:

“All these guys look like posers to me. None of them deserves any real respect, so I say.’Hooray for reality TV.’ The real question in my mind is, why do I give a **** about these guys in the first place? I guess the show has in fact engaged me. What is the world coming to?”

Stay tuned.

Amanda Bynes Charged In DUI Case, Actress Pleads Innocence To Barack Obama

Posted: 06/06/2012 8:37 am Updated: 06/06/2012 8:37 am

Following Amanda Bynes’ early-April DUI arrest, during which she reportedly side-swiped a cop car, the former Nickelodeon star has officially been charged with DUI.

According to TMZ, Bynes has been charged with one count of misdemeanor DUI and could serve anywhere between 48 hours and six months in jail if convicted.

But Bynes’ trouble doesn’t stop there. Just days after her DUI arrest, Bynes was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run, though no charges for the hit-and-run have been made.

Following news of her DUI charge, Bynes took to Twitter to proclaim her innocence — to the president.

“Hey @BarackObama… I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end,” the “She’s the Man” star tweeted.  If convicted, Bynes will most likely serve no more than several hours in a county jail, due to overcrowding.

Click over to TMZ for more details on Bynes’ fate.

I can’t help but laugh at all of you writing fake stories about me. I was not in any hit and runs. I don’t drink so the DUI is false.

Hey @BarackObama… I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end.

Kim Kardashian: I Hate Indian Food, Not Indian People

Celebrity NewsMay 30, 2012 AT 6:40PM By Beth Anne Macaluso

Heads up Kanye West: you better stick with Chinese takeout if you’re ordering in with Kim Kardashian.

On Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the reality star, 31, told her family she thinks Indian food is “disgusting.”

PHOTOS: Kim Kardashian’s rough year

Her offhanded remark drew criticism throughout the Twittersphere. “I think it’s good Kim Kardashian doesn’t like Indian food, because that means she won’t ever visit India and that in itself is a blessing,” one user wrote.

Said another, “Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner called Indian food ‘so disgusting.’ Seriously? You don’t have to like it, [but] don’t be rude.”

On Tuesday, Kardashian took to her blog to address the backlash in a post titled “Just Want to Clear Something Up.”

PHOTOS: Why Kim and Kanye are the perfect match

“In NO way was [my comment] intended as an insult to the Indian people or their culture. This is just my own personal taste,” she wrote. “There are a lot of foods I don’t like . . . I hate cilantro and peppers, and there are definitely some Armenian foods that I personally find disgusting, but that doesn’t reflect my opinions on other Armenian people or my culture.”

Explained the E! star, “My comment wasn’t intended to offend anybody. We all have our own opinions and tastes and I was simply expressing mine.”

  • May 30, 2012 – 7:53pm Kim Worsham-HortonI can’t believe that people are too stupid to distinguish that she said she hated the food not the people. I can’t believe that she has to explain herself. This is ridiculous.

Lady Gaga cancels Indonesian show after threats
Published: Tuesday, May 29, 2012, 12:07 PM     Updated: Tuesday, May 29, 2012, 12:12 PM

Associated Press By Associated Press The Associated PressFollow

AX153_5772_9.JPGView full sizeAPMuslim students in Indonesia rally against Lady Gaga

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Lady Gaga canceled her sold-out show in Indonesia after Islamist hard-liners threatened violence, claiming her sexy clothes and provocative dance moves would corrupt the youth.

The controversy was a blow to the predominantly Muslim country’s reputation for combining free speech and democracy with a mostly moderate brand of the faith.

Fans were devastated, despite the promoter’s offer of full refunds. Some accused police — who refused to issue a permit over concerns about security — of buckling to the will of a small group of thugs.

The planned “Born This Way Ball” concert has been on-again-off-again from the start.

But on Sunday, it was final, said Minola Sebayang, a lawyer for Big Daddy, the promoter of the June 3 show.

“It’s unfortunate,” he said. “But with threats if the concert goes ahead, Lady Gaga’s side is calling it off. This is not only about Lady Gaga’s security, but extends to those who will be watching her.”

Indonesia, a secular nation of 240 million, is often held up by the U.S. and others an example of how democracy and Islam and can coexist. In many ways they are right. Since emerging from dictatorship just over a decade ago, sweeping reforms have resulted in direct elections, while vastly improving human rights and freeing up the media.

But a small extremist fringe has become more vocal — and violent — in recent years, attacking Christians and members of other religious minorities, transvestites, atheists and anyone else deemed immoral.

The most notorious group, Islamic Defenders Front, called Lady Gaga a “messenger of the devil” and vowed to turn out at the airport by the thousands if she tried to step off the plane. Others said they bought tickets so they could wreak havoc from inside the 52,000-seat stadium in the capital, Jakarta.

Police responded by denying the necessary permits. Then, after public outcry, they said they’d reconsider — but only if Lady Gaga agreed to tone down her act.

Instead, she pulled the plug on what was supposed to be the biggest stop on her Asian tour.

Michael Rusli, head of Big Daddy, promised “Little Monster” fans full refunds.

But that provided little consolation to people like 25-year-old Johnny Purba.

“This only shows to the world how weak security forces are in this country, how police are afraid of a bunch of hard-liners,” he said.

“Gaga’s two-hour show will not hurt Indonesian Muslims. For God’s sake, she is not a terrorist!”

Around 50 others, dressed up like the pop diva, performed a mob flash dance at a shopping mall in Jakarta to some of her biggest hits.

Hard-liners, however, were ecstatic.

“This is a victory for Indonesian Muslims,” said Salim Alatas, one of the leaders of the Islamic Defenders Front. “Thanks to God for protecting us from a kind of devil.”

Earlier, Murhali Barda, a spokesman for the group, said supporters had purchased more than 150 tickets to the concert.

He posted a picture on his Facebook page of a man hiding his identity with a turban and sunglasses and holding a $50 ticket to the “Ball.”

“We have gotten Lady Gaga tickets,” the caption said. “Not to watch but for us to enter.”

“Our target is to stop the concert,” he wrote, providing little more detail. “We would force them off the stage but not harm the audience.”

Lauren Odes: Too Hot for Lingerie? (Photos)

 

By Pat Cain

 

This is one of those stories that leaves the eyes longing to see more so we will oblige or dear readers with pictures. Lauren Odes is a pretty blond woman with enormous breasts who worked at a downtown lingerie store in New York City when the unthinkable happened. She was called “too hot” for her big breasts that eventually got her fired

She says that the store management asked her to better cover up her awesome body so that she would appear more modest to customers and coworkers alike. The issue was mainly her breasts which the prudish people who run the store thought were simply too big for anyone’s comforts. I would expect big breasts are an asset in a lingerie store, but have to confess only limited knowledge of what women want.

We learn from the news reports that the boob owners of the Native Intimates lingerie store, where she worked in the garment district of Manhattan, are Jewish of the Orthodox persuasion. What that has to do with anything I cannot say either, because I have even less knowledge of what Jewish people want than I do of what women want. Oh fine, I know. Orthodox Jews are conservative. We get it.

Lauren Odes says that one of those conservative owners suggested that she “tape down” her breasts so they would (presumably) not stick out so far and bounce around so easily when she was working. Will someone kindly explain to me how that works exactly? She felt completely humiliated, she later told the press. The situation escalated, one thing led to another, and soon enough she was out of a job.

We don’t know the truth of her claims or the company’s which has not commented to the story thus far, but we can tell you that she is in good hands with high powered attorney Gloria Allred representing her interests. And we can tell you more about the beautiful lady who has been so maligned.

Lauren Odes is a 29-year old spicy woman living in Hoboken, New Jersey, where she could easily commute to her job in New York. She was placed there by a temporary agency because work has been hard to find lately. My thinking is this publicity will help her get a better job somewhere else that appreciates what she brings to the table.

She once listed her availability on a website called “Reality Wanted” which is designed to help potential reality show cast members find a TV show who wants them on air. We don’t believe she ever got on television from this listing, but we think she has a future on TV. Just don’t put her on a reality show that is based on synagogue life because we have learned that is not her best calling.

On that website she lists her sexual orientation as straight and in a relationship with a handsome hunk who is undoubtedly happier to have her services than those mean old lingerie store owners. Interestingly, she lists her occupation as Fashion Executive and Bartender, a great combination if you think about it. What could be better than watching “too hot” women like Lauren model lingerie while serving drinks? Case closed.

You can find Lauren’s Facebook page over here where she throws in her middle name as “Lauren Elizabeth Odes.” There you will see that she has a super cute doggie and looks ravishing in a black dress that accentuates her form. Some girls have all the luck.
