While I have no idea if this is true, there is a rumor from 'a person close to the MindFreak show' that some raw and 'unretouched' footage from the shows has been leaked to someone in the 'tabloid journalism' field.

If this is true, I would speculate that it was sold for lots of money, not just leaked.

I can't imagine what it would do to the career of a performer like Criss Angel who heavily relies on 'certain methods' if this were broadcast nationally! I would have thought he would have a pretty tight lid on what goes in and out of that editing room.

But, for the right amount of money, I'm sure someone would figure out how to get around that.

Has anyone heard anything more about this?

My best,
David

All the more reason for him to use continuous shot?
-A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.
-It is easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
-The secret impresses no one. The trick you use it for is everything.

I heard a similar rumor last year in the peak of the fist season, I am sure it is just another rumor with no truth to it as they always seem to be floating around. But on the other hand I am sure as time goes on with Criss in the spotlight things are getting even more risky with the ever growing number of people that want to expose him. It is somewhat possible about inside sources leaking material, a good example of this would be the footage Criss wanted to use in the first season but a&e said no, it was a clip of him and J.Davis from korn and it got out onto the internet somehow. Even for the "right amount of money" I don't see that happening anytime soon thought as I am sure he is even getting more paranoid about it every day.

Wasn't that something to do with the bullet catch?

Eventually.....Media will turn on itself. Its the nature of Media. The machine that feeds on pumping up these apparant " reality" tv will expose some scandal on one of the reality shows where some contestant will admit it was staged and then every " Inside Edition or Entertainment Tonight" will ride this story until its dead. Some new fad will come in and reality tv will be looked at as so phony and out of style and everyone will look at themselves and deny they ever really believed this stuff....just like I NEVER wore platform shoes or plaid pants in the 70's...got that?..NEVER!

Chris isn't stupid. He'll be on tour performing live before this tv bubble bursts.

Best,

Tim

Apperantley, in a interview he mentioned that his Russian Roulet stunt was not scheduled to be released but some how leaked on to the internet.

I don't know. I would be inclined to think he treated that post-production room like his buddies at the Aladdin casino treat the cash room. But, things do happen.

Things do happen, but I am more inclined to believe that things happen for a reason... A well-calculated reason.

Word of mouth is much more effective than any multi-million dollar ad campaign.

Just to clarify:

I agree that the Russian Roulette may have been an intentional leak, but I doubt footage exposing Criss 'hold-for-edit' Angel would be a well-calculated move on his team's part.

...Ahhh, but you'll never forget who they are/were. So in one sense, the adage is true.

Cardone,

Until you cited Milli Vanilli, I never really thought there was an exception.

Good call . . .

How about OJ Simpson..... Edwin Booth ...... Valantino......Ashley Simpson........
I always thought bad publicity was publicity and good publicity was helpful publicity.... what a tongue twister... The Milli Vanilli thing was insane remember people went out and burned their records.....
I think they should do an expose on how many pop stars use autotuner on thier out of tune voices.....

BLABENTINO has the stolen tapes! His deal with Al Jazeera has fallen through, so he is calling on FOX next.


BTW..I didn't see any exposure on last nights show, so perhaps BLABENTINO will hold off on his Expose'?

BLABENTINO is a little upset. No telling what he's about to reveal!
