Actor Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, have run into legal trouble once again – the couple was arrested Saturday after police were called to a Montecito, California residence to investigate a report of squatters.
According to a press release from the Santa Barbara Sheriff's department, a representative for the owner of the property came by the house to check the security alarm because it had gone off earlier that day, and then discovered that someone had been resting their head in the property’s guest house.
The Quaids weren’t around at the time, but upon their return later that evening the couple told the police that they have “owned the property since the 1990’s." According to the statement, the owners had documentation that someone had purchased the property from the Quaids several years earlier.
A contractor who worked on the residence believes the couple caused more than $5,000 in damages in the guest house, and the Quaids were taken into custody for residential burglary. Bail is set at $50,000 a piece.
I'll right away grasp your rss as I can not in finding your email subscription hyperlink or e-newsletter service. Do you have any? Kindly let me realize in order that I may just subscribe. Thanks.
They're not irrational or insane – this more than likely began with a stalker problem. Quaid has earned in exess of 40 million dollars over his lifetime. The good guys were probably watching him to catch the stalkers and he couldn't differenciate between the two because nobody ever identifies themselves. That's how it began.... and then it escalated. It's happened before with people who are not famous.
Anyone remember an old movie with John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd called "Neighbors"?? I think it's the Quaid's inspiration.
She is a lovely woman. He looks the way he looks. I don't know what is going on with them but it doesn't look good. I presume she is the enabler. A beautiful woman like that should not be destroyed.
Bias cnn runs this story but nothing about the Black panther party and Rev, farrakan meeting with the president of Iran . I'm sure they are plotting something .
In the house of Quaid where the wife was laid, the squatters were a plotting, to live there long on wine and song and sleep in quite contented. The cops were called and @sses hauled to the curb where belongings waited, they were cuffed and stuffed into the wagon for having fund that were lagging.
Man, this guy is actually turning into cousin Eddie.
What is up with these two ? Seriously what have they been smoking or whatever ? They can't ever seem to stay out of trouble anymore. They're ridiculous.
gas money gave out
I wonder if Meg Ryan was doing Randy, too...may be why Dennis isn't running to his brother's aid.
The can't arrest Randy Quaid! He saved our hides in Independence Day!
But he got vaporized in the process.
If they thought that they owned the house why were they "staying" in the guest house??
Snots taken over their bed?
(Eddie) "Snots, you roll over and let uncle clark scratch yer belly!"
Poor Randy.....he should have stuck with ACTING crazy, instead of BEING crazy!!
I love Randy. He's just keeping it real. <3
This is just a performance piece like Joquin Phoenix has been doing for the last year.
haha- Randy Quaid and his wife left a motel just a few months ago without paying to stay there- maybe they thought they owned the motel too!!!
Do have one question- unless the people left their house and guest house locked- how did Randy and his wife get in??? Maye the people just didnt change the locks after they bought the house from Randy!!! I think Randy and his wife both have been fried just a little bit too much- their brains have melted (this is your brain on drugs)!!!!
I thought I saw the wheel staying there the past few weeks....
It has been all downhill since Family Vacation and Kingpin......
I am thinking they move into a trailer on an old nuclear test ground outside of Las Vegas. Of course cash buried in coffee cans around the place is a must.
Randy's best work was "The Last Detail" made in 1973 w/Jack Nicholson.
Can you say METH???
Looks like he might be wearing real fur. I'm sorry the cops didn't shoot them.
I think Brokeback Mountain just about threw this guy over the edge. He was whacked in Midnight Express but I think Brokeback was just a little bit more than what he could chew on.
I use to like this guy. Now.... he is nothing but a pitiful soul.
Randy needs to do another Blockbuster like Independence Day or maybe try to get Dennis to make movies with him as the goofy brother...
Oh, it's no so bad. Eddie says when the baby comes I can quit one of my night jobs.
Maybe the sh**ter was full. Where's Clark when we need him?
I don't know if I oughta go sailin' down no hill with nothin' between the ground and my brains but a piece of government plastic.
He could always sell his coat...
Merry Christmas! Sh!tters full!
I really believe that he doesn't have all his faculties with everything that he has been into lately. I don't know about his wife. Maybe she just goes along.
Wait.. what did he say?
"Hello Boys.. I'm Back!"
Seriously, he needs to get a real job and pay his bills and live like us normal poor people!
What is wrong with him ? and her...
I'd let them stay.. then charge 'star gazers' to come see them..
kinda like the zoo..
IDIOT POLICEMEN. No wonder so many are killed!!!!!!!!!!
Have these two lost their minds ?? What in the world is going on ?? Just crazy !!
It reminds me of another nutjob – Charlie Sheen entered a house a few years ago in thousand Oaks and was fount thee sleeping in the bedroom –
And I think the quaids were busted last spring for evading hotel payment somewhere -
Can someone please get him a job, I'm a Social Worker and would be happy to fill out a housing application if need be. What has happened to this man. Aren't there other Quaids he can live with....wasn't his brother married to Meg Ryan?
Yeah, married to Meg, and she was smart enough to leave!. I did feel sorry for Dennis though with his babies.
Haaaaa boom-a-rang owners!!
I'm starting to think the metal plate in Cousin Eddie's head has gone bad. Either that or someone turned on the microwave a few too many times. Maybe it was both!
He is lucky someone didn't think he was a bear and shoot him....
'Real ketchup Eddie? Only the best for your Clark'. Come on Randy, get it together man.
Oop's meant to say 'best for YOU. Sorry all.
Looks like Cousin Eddie lost the motorhome.
What the heck is wrong with these two? Love her fullet by the way.
Why is Randy Quaid taking on Cousin Eddie as a persona? Is he a method actor?
More like a meth-head actor.
Cousin Eddie: Well, I didn't want to ask you, Clark, you know, but could you maybe spare a little extra cash?
Clark: Sure, Eddie, how much do you need?
Cousin Eddie: About $52,000.
This is called when crack and broke went bad!!!!LMAO
Aunt Edna: Why don't you just ask him for the money, Eddie? He sure as Hell can't take a hint.
Cousin Eddie: Well, I didn't want to ask you, Clark, you know, but could you maybe spare a little extra cash?
Clark: Sure, Eddie, how much do you need?
Cousin Eddie: About $52,000.
I hope they just pay the fine this time. Last time it cost about four times more after it was as over. He is a funny guy. He needs to work out something with Casey Affleck.
No home to live in but some how they got invited to Slamdance.
ohhh, this ain't ours no mo? dang accountants and such... well, are my clothes still in the closet at least?:)
They are dammmmmmn stupid
According to celebritynetworth.com, he's worth $35 million. If that's true, why can't they buy a place to live and pay their bills?
Apparently you have never been to Montecito....he might be on the low end of the net worth scale there. The average house is well over $2 million.
Man she looks like a crack head and a half.
I want to hang out with these two, they are awesome !!
must of been a raw deal. snooze you lose the house. guest what you are not invencible. quaid-playing!
It's the oxycontin. Most weird behavior celebrities exhibit these days is due to the Oxy. They can't both be bipoloar and have synchronized mania.
These guys probably own a lot of property, and have property managers to buy/sell/rent it for them. They were in the area and forgot that one of their agents already sold this house, so they decided to stay there, thinking it was their property. And apparently, the new owners never changed the lock. $5000 worth of damage? I doubt it.
I guess Clark isn't allowing Cousin Eddy to park the trailer in the front yard anymore.
Does anyone ELSE smell the "Randy and Evi Show" just around the corner??
That's not Paul Reubens...that's Cher's sister...apparently $#!tter's full.
Looks like Randy is taking the role of Uncle Eddie a little too seriously.
This piece is SO poorly written that I can't understand what actually happened. 2 people were arrested. Why? Doesn't say. The property was sold? Who were the owners when the burglary was reported? Neither question answered. If they didn't own the home, why were they called to the property due to a burglary? There is no excuse for such poor quality writing.
Bonnie, I have to agree. If you're going to put a shameful spotlight on someone, at least give all the known facts to support the issue. Who knows, maybe they even go permission to stay there and an accident happened. Get the whole story before you write an article like this folks.
I guess Randy has always been type cast as a big dufus. and this role has taken over his off-screen life. And they say that life doesn't imitate art..
When did Paul Reubens go blonde, and marry Randy Quaid?
What do you expect from a guy who's daughter has a lip fungus that they haven't identified, yet. Or, a dog with a "set" on him that could hump yer' leg like there's no tomorrow? Or, how about a niece who was born without a tongue? Or a son who's finished high school and is now off to the big C; not college, CARNIVAL! Or, a wife who makes Hamburger Helper...without the hamburger? Come on! This is a guy who empties his "shi**er" into the neighbor's gutter!
These two are bat sh!t insane
I, personally, sell houses, and then sleep in them, until the cops come all the time
Celebrities should really be held to a higher standard
That's what I think.........
Weird, he had the money to dye his hair and beaard to match his fur coat, probably synthetic & PETA approved.
Hey...he stole my coat! I'll be damned if he tries wearing my 8-ball jacket next!
They both need mental evaluations, treatment and medication. If they owned the property, why would they stay in the guest house and cause $5,000 woth of damage???!!!–
Sounds like Cousin Eddie.
Too funny. I hope e! makes story about his life :)
Pop Culture Report. Stuff happens and we use the known human to remind us of such.
I'm always suprised what passes for 'news' these days on the entertainment and living sections of CNN.com. I call them the 'not-really news' areas since they don't have to meet any journalistic standards of any type whatsoever. It's like reading the national enquirer.
They were both arrested a few months ago here in TX for skipping out on a $10,000+ hotel bill. Something is not right in Quaid-land!
More strange news from the land of nutcases. Hollywood. What city of total flakes.
Isn't that why Cali-friggin-fornia is called the Granola state? All the fruits, nut and flakes? ;-)
Funny stuff...welcome to hollyweird. Oh and by the way visiting LA for a vacation, so the family can see the stars, Hollywood, and have fun at Disneyland? Dont bother. Northern Ca. is so much nicer. Its not even close, unless your kids are 2-8 so they can see Mickey. Great America in San Jose (Better rides), beaches(must nicer looking),redwoods(hard to beat) San Francisco(Timeless,cultered and yes very strange too)... I hope Randy gets some needed help/
NOCAL v SOCAL argument, please! Lakers v Warriors ?? Chavez ravine V. the mistake on the bay?? love the whole state and stop fractionalizing america. does every issue have to result in I'M BETTER libs v tea party etc etc etc GROW UP AMERICA
Have you spent time in both places? I do like south of LA but the LA basin for families thinking of a vacation, needs to think about it. Its not a south vs north thing. Sorry but its true. Northern CA. is the jewel of California and should be seen first over the pit that is LA.
No thanks! No way I'll be caught in San Angeles. Look what Cocteau has planned for it. If I need to be on the left coast then NoCal is where I'll be. But not too close to the Oregon boarder.
Running from hotel's without paying now this but the media dont say he's broke then he is crazy !!
Nooooo!!! Cousin Eddie why'd u do it?? U didn't stash anymore money in the desert?? And for the love of all things holy, sum1 get that woman a sandwich cuz it's obvious he's not sharing the couch pizza!!!
First of all, where did the legal term "squatter's" come from? lol
Didn't they just wreck a hotel room or something a few months back?
There is most certainly something more to the Quaid story. Ive heard that hes developed a healthy drug habit and all his cash was spent on it and by his wackjob wife. Dont know if it was merely a rumor but the headlines seem to support that story. Damn shame. He was a good actor. Probably let his wife drag him down to her level. I wouldnt be surprise if his brother has washed his hands of this guy. You can take only so much.
Oh, please. Dennis is not innocent. Him and Meg used to dope it up and party back in the day. I think he has a drinking problem, as well.
This guy looks like he needs an intervention from Dr. Drew on MTV. I can't imagine why a guy as talented as he is (remember Not Another Teen Movie) would end up like this – HA!
He will be back! Just remember the movie Independence Day.
They should hire them to play the White House crashers in a TV movie!
Don't you just hate it when you forgot you sold the property....in the 1990's. Looks like they still are having financial issues (as well as memory issues). Maybe they will make another "Vacation" movie, Randy does have the Cousin Eddie look down.
These two are as nutty as they come
You certainly have to admire their nerve. For whatever reason, those two think someone else should be footing the bill for their room and board, so I think the state of CA should grant their wish and lock their grifter butts up.
Randy Quaid is a fantastic actor who has given excellent performances ever since his first film THE LAST DETAIL with Jack Nicholson in 1973. Just get this guy some work, even if it's just TV! Bet that'll keeping him outta trouble. Oh Yeah, he may need to dump the crazy wife too!
She looks like your classic Eastern European mail order bride.
Two total losers, continually skippiong out on hotel and resturant bills. Definately both share an extreme need for attention. It's too bad that Dennis got all the talent and looks. Nothing was left over for Randy, not even common sense.
I didn't know Randy Quaid was married to Lady Gaga!
HAHA...Lada Gaga. Now we can say Lady GaGa's Sh#$er's full!
LOL. Evi's just another free b!tch!
He should have just asked to house sit! Loser...his career sucks because he sucks as an actor...he and Steven Baldwin should start a reality show for bad actors.
Is this guy mentally ill? Seems that over the last years he has begun to go downhill, get more unkempt and otherwise taken on the street person personna.
Someone get this guy a movie deal,cant remember if they owned the house,wonder id he can sub lease the RV from christmas vacation......
Now this is what I call ENTERTAINMENT! Go Randy!
And why am I supposed to know who thy are?
The all-knowing Kariwuhrer doesn't know who they are!! They MUST not be famous.
Don't get out much do ya...
hmmmm... she looks like she's on crack... he looks like he was just born that way..
I think he made that coat out of his beard. Too bad for him, he is funny. Sadly he'll end up on some lame reality show to pay bills. Dennis needs to help a brother out.
What is wrong with tehese two? they have the wold by the b@lls and still they act like junkies.. HEY WAIT.. DRUGS???? naaaaa.. to much time to much money
WHATS IN YOUR WALLET ??? thats his voice on those commercials
Is it just me or do they look like they smell bad.
No....it's just you.
Take a bath.
Guess the Shi@#tter was full!!!!
More evidence that drugs should be legalized, right?
Some people compulsively do nutty stuff just because they like the thrill of it. Weird.
These fools are always ggood for a laugh. I wonder what it will be next. As for the idea of his brother, Dennis helping him, I wouldn't be caught on the same planet with him if I was Dennis.
Apparently this guy is typecast as a hick for a good reason. He can't act and doesn't have to.
My dog house is better than Randy's house...HA HA ...RUFF RUFF
You can't argue with the Big Deal!
Joaquin Phoenix should have taken notes from this guy, this is how you do a downward spiral. I think he still believes he's Cousin Eddie.
This brings back memories from the movie called Next door.
I sort of feel for them but then again I don't. Can he not remember selling that property? Both of them have had weird behavior. Maybe someone needs to due a psych test or something on them.
Boy, she is another nasty looking bleach blonde obviously with the usual bleach-blonde low self esteem
I think she's rather attractive in that pic, honestly. I'd love to party with her. ;) Haha.
I'd love to party with them both, actually. lol
They don't rmember if they owned the house or not?? I've never had that problem!
Randy still owes the public their money back for some of the worst movies of all time..Pretty soon he will out in your backyard hunting Squirrels! Randy watch your cholesterol!
Best X-mas ever!
Come on! ......He had to have made some money right? Did Madoff take his savings also? I feel bad for the guy but where is his family?His brother Dennis is in just about every movie made...
Hey leave my brother alone! ...I am trying to get to him bailed out of jail it will be the day after tomorrow until I can get the cash...
and don't forget the checks he gets for movies he's done in the past that are being run again and again and again...
Looks like they both just returned from a visit to Siberia – it must be fun to party with these 2
I was just thinking how nice it was that his facial hair matched his fur coat perfectly.
In trouble again – publicity!! LOL – he needs a gig and soon. Can't believe these two. LOL
shi#*er is full
Thanks, I'd been wondering what he'd been up to the past few years.
I wonder what happened to his RV from "Christmas Vacation".
The sh-tter was full :-)
I think he crashed it into the bottom of a giant alien space ship.
Why does ANY media cover these nut jobs stories? Move on.
Ed – maybe you should 'move on' before reading it and commenting.
Yeah Ed...why the comment? Must ahve interested you enough. Hipocrite..
LMAO. Cousin Eddy rocks!!!
You serious, Clark?
Can "Snot" be too far behind in the guest house? lol
wouldn't be more suprised if I woke up with my head sewed to the carpet
Little pigs...little pigs....I'll huff & I'll puff & I'll send Randy Quaid to blow your house down...time for a diet, dude & leave the ludes alone.
"Is that real tomato ketchup Eddy?" ...."Nothing but the best Clark!"
NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! FIRST!!!! SOMEONE NEEDS TO GET THIS GUY A MOVIE!!!
Sounds like it could be an honest mistake. Some of these rich people have no idea what they own and what they don't. One of his accountants might have sold it without his knowledge. But then why stay in the guest house and why damage the place??? Rain Deeeeeeeee????? You got some spainin to do.....
I would let him stay
These two are crazy, absolute nutjobs
GET OUT OF MY HOUSE! Gees, what a couple of creeps.
Wow. This is sad... but obviously we're not dealing with any "rich people" as someone on here suggested! They are two down-on-their-luck folks who tried to get away with living in a nice house. IF they DID still own it – they wouldn't be squatting in the guest house, and causing $5,000 in damage. Brother Dennis is no doubt tired of footing the bill for Randy's constant shenanigans. And yeah... they both DO look like they could use a bath. Guess they didn't have running water in "THEIR" guest house.
Please welcome The King and Queen of White Trash.
Some people just can't understand the changes that happen when their status changes from celebrities to has-beens. These silly attempts at publicity tricks are just that. They might work for a while, but we've all caught on. I feel sorry for them.They are washed up and have no place to go but further down.. and then out.
Randy needs to serve time for his performance in "Independence Day." Justice must be served!!!
Someone called them "The King and Queen of White Trash"?? I didn't realize Michaele and Tareq Salahi had relinquished their crowns!
Mom said I was unlucky, but when your body's covered with third degree and your foots caught in a bear trap, you're just bound to start talking crazy....
Crack is Whack People
These two are gettin to be like a train wreck....but oddly entertaining....Now.. their lives would make an interesting reality show....the theme coukld be .....we're not sure where we live!!
Sounds like he spent all his millions...he should have saved some for a face lift–he's one ugly dude....she needs a shave...I like his films....but what's with acting like all the nutcases in tinseltown?
This is just a performance like Joquin Phoenix has been doing for the last year.
This is your homestead, huh? Yeah, I don't know for how long, though. The bank's been after me like flies on a rib roast.
he needs to go hit up his little brother seems Dennis is doing alot better these days than his older brother who looks like is doing some form of substance abuse
So this guy really played himself on Kingpin?
I wish you people would be kinder to my brother, sure he has some problems, but who doesn't? Anyway I was notified this morning that the police had found both Randy and about one half of my glue supply that I had reported missing. I still haven't put the Randy and glue missing thing together.
Yes, He needs work badly. Where the heck is his agent? He's such a good actor too. Sad
