I guess this is the downside of fame.

I think that's a video that should have never been aired personally. God knows I've been right where that man is myself. I don't care for him as a celebrity but as a human being, he has a real problem to contend with. I also feel for his daughter. Hopefully something good will come out it - like him seeing the video and getting the help he needs.

The daughter was keeping her composure like a pro. Technically he wasn't drinking, he was eating!

I can't wait until my kids are old enough to video tape me in bad situations and then turn around and sell the tape to a media outlet. This is my retirement plan. Now I just have to get semi famous. Wonder how you go about making Germans like you?

Shame on his daughter for publicly humiliating him like that. I wonder how much money she got for selling the video to Entertainment Tonite.

The poor bastard. But if he uses this positively he can win.

It's not like he's the only person in the world who has been in that particular situation.
Just 45 minutes ago I was on the floor, drunk, eating a burger.... and I was nude!

Why the **** is this even on the news? Oh wait, I forgot. It's not news, it's entertainment. They need to leave the poor guy alone. It's not like he was the only person in the world that got drunk that night and was laying on the floor eating a burger.

Good lord Raiyn, where did you get that?!? Seriously, I want to pass it on.

And I think the video should never have been passed to the media. I've been worse, I think many people have.

That's pretty much my thoughts on it. Been there, done that. So have a lot of others.
