Ted Nugent's wife arrested, and more news to note

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Ted Nugent's wife Shemane made an oopsie at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Thursday night. According to the couple's attorney, Shemane made an "honest mistake" when she left a handgun in her purse. It showed up when Shemane went through security and she was subsequently arrested. [MLive.com]
  • James Van Der Beek has been busy. The actor and his wife Kimberly are expecting their third child. With his family of four soon becoming five, the actor tweeted Friday, "4 + 1 = #thrilled #excited #humbled #outnumbered." [Twitter/James Van Der Beek]
  • A modern day "Les Mis" on the small screen? Not sure if we want to hear the people sing on a weekly basis, but "Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas is trying to make it happen. There's already a script commitment in place from Fox. [Deadline]
  • Lindsay Lohan is more powerful than we thought. Although she's been locked away in rehab for most of the summer, the 27-year-old still managed to hold a grown man hostage. "For the last 16 months I’ve been held hostage, by my own choosing, to a very talented but unpredictable actress,” Paul Schrader, who directed Lohan in "The Canyons," said at the film's Venice Film Festival premiere. LiLo conveniently didn't show up, meaning Schrader, as he told the press, is now "a free man." [NYDN]
  • Robin Thicke blurred the line between friendly and flirting when he placed his hand on a mystery woman's rump backstage at the MTV VMAs. (No, the mystery woman was not Miley Cyrus. If you noticed, he was hands free during that escapade.) [E!]

    that poor woman...I like cat scratch fever but I am not generally a Nugent fan. I am not an NRA gun nut (i own not a single firearm but not due to disagreeing with having a weapon due to my poverty) and while I respect hunters (especially ted) I do not hunt myself as my wage slave job does not allow for such recreation....but as an American who could not help but admire this beautiful woman the first time I saw her many years ago during a televised performance of his she is the classic beautiful woman who was probably given a firearm by her husband to use for protection and just quite simply forgot. For this she must be arrested? Made a show of? An example of? What a country...like she is going to hijack a plane...puhleez. This should have been a confiscation situation and a warning with a fine maybe. When you go to court and pay the fine you get your property back etc. To arrest this notable person for this is sad...wake up America the same cretins who killed Kennedy are still running the show and they aint giving up their guns...why should we?

    He should ditch the cowboy hat because when these Liberals see him all they see is John Wayne.. they have no idea about his freaky past. And I mean Freaky. These are the same liberals who would call Hunter S. Thompson a "right wing nutjob" if he were alive today. These guys were larger than life. Liberals don't realize that a strange breed of humans used to stomp upon the terra only a few short decades ago. They were called Free Individuals and they were wild. They were Freaks. They've been phased out over the years, though. They scare the living buh-jesus out of modern liberals and fearfully amuse the conservatives. People used to be allowed to be truly "liberal" and our laws allowed people to do more of what they wanted.

    Maybe Ted's wife can try the same trick he used to get out of the military draft – crapping in your pants for a few days prior to the hearing. The judge might let her go to keep the folks in jail from associating with that type individual. But wait... isn't she one of those rich, white, right-wing, responsible gun owners who can be trusted with firearms?

      Is that really what you think? You do know that old Ted has NEVER missed a chance to rail on liberals once in his miserable life. Just so you know, I am a liberal....tried and true. I also own numerous firearms. I hunt whenever I get the chance and I like to shoot coyotes for fun, then I leave them to rot and attract more coyotes so I can shoot them too. What liberals want is responsible gun ownership. Trying to get on a plane with a loaded handgun is NOT, repeat NOT responsible gun ownership. It's too bad that loud-mouthed conservatives can't practice what they preach.

    Ted Nugent is a liar and a fraud! On April 14, 2012, while speaking at an NRA Convention in St. Louis, Mo., Ted Nugent declared that he would be “either dead or in jail by this time next year” If President Obama was re-elected.

    It is now almost 17 months later and Nugent is still out there ranting his hatred for America and the decisions made by American voters who happen to disagree with his assessment of our current administration. Now, his braindead wife gets arrested for trying to carry a handgun through the security checkpoint at DFW International Airport. To my knowledge, this is the first time a well known person has been this stupid since Barry Switzer made that mistake.

    The Nuge and his wife both need to do the world a favor and off themselves.

      Actually if you look up Nugent, he's been a freak all his life. People said he might be insane back in the 70s. He lost a lot of fans by saying he hated rock fans worse than goat ticks. "Hey, where did my audience go? Buy those tickets, goat ticks!" He had to join DamnYankees to make a comeback, and it worked because he could still play back then, but these days he's a nostalgia act.

    I don't mean to defend marrying babies but just for the record Jerry Lee Lewis married his SECOND cousin and she wasn't underage in the state they were married in or they would not have been able to marry. Some states in the US still have rather medieval laws concerning the legal age for marrying.

      If the Bible is accurate, then we are ALL related through the incestuous relationship between Eve and her sons followed by a second incestuous relationship between members of Noah's family. So, technically, we are ALL related and anybody we marry will be a distant cousin, niece or nephew. The Bible loves a juicy "love story" involving incest or adultery!

      Nugent has always been unstable, jumping into crowds and waving pistols, but in recent years his behavior has lurched sideways into schizophrenia. If his delusions didn't closely match the wild rhetoric of the Tea Party, he would have been diagnosed and put on medication and maybe he could turn back into a musician. His cronies are more interested in his royalty checks than his mental health.
