Famous Crackheads in the Pokey Again

ryan_oneal.jpgAndrew Blankstein has two pieces in the LAT today. One is about Ryan O’Neal and his son being arrested for suspicion of meth. The other one is about Aaron Spelling‘s brother, Daniel Spelling Jr. being arrested on an outstanding felony warrant due to his possession of cocaine.

Do you see a pattern here? We did. So we caught up with Blankstein and asked:

FBLA: Ever worry that you are becoming the Dr Drew of the LAT? The drunken celebrity disaster magnet?

AB: Let’s just say, if this was college, I would be majoring in criminal justice and minoring in celebrity justice.

We say in this town – that’s still major. Thanks Blankstein!
