I didn't listen to the audio link, but maybe he was attempting to rape her and this is him getting his side out before she hires an attorney! I'm sick of Mr. Diamond and his "poor me" story - he was on the radio stations all over the Milwaukee area crying about his parents stealing his SBTB money, his neighbors gawking at him (ah, he's a "celebrity" in a small WI town!), he's called the police on his neighbors about 5 times in 3 years just for looking at his house, and now the foreclosure thing where he was "taken" by some broker in New York. Grow and take some responsibility for you life already!!!

OH common people. He is an actor. He has to make a living and as a child actor most of them don't get the time to go to college. Some do but they take a break in their careers. Some cannot afford to take that break. You there and then your gone. We the public are the ones putting these actors out of work.

When companies downsize you don't like it. You don't want your job phased out. Why would you expect an actor or child actor to feel any other way? He is built up by the studio's, fans, managers and then DROPPED.

If anything Justin might need a new line of work but its hard when its all you know. Try some compassion instead of he's a freak, he's got his 15 minutes. Might we say that about you and your job performance?

As the mother of a special needs child. I am outraged at your comments about being "Retared" That word isn'teven used anymore. So if this guy is JEWISH is doesn't mean he knows anything about money. He got rich off of his fame and can't hanle the outside world. He needs to get money the easy way. By Fame. Now please in the future respect people with special cahllenges..............and yes GROW UP. Do we need to get into your name?

I would have to agree w/ Kris that you are the retarded one per you can't spell at a 5th grade level. Apparently you don't know the whole story either. He wasn't in bankruptcy or foreclosure. Screech was in a land contract type deal and the owner screwed him over, selling to a land contractor. Watch a little more tv or spend some more time surfing news sites before you belittle others.

I have watched Josh Blue all this season...the guy is awesome!! He's turned his disablility into a very positive abaility! People say he's retarded....they say he's a fool and all that...excuse me...those big mouths haven't got anything going for themselves except the ability to 'down' others to make they're pitiful life seem better to themselves!
I definitely applaud Josh's bravery for turning his disability around into something very positive for himself and very entertaining for others!!! Those fools who insult him and put him down....they should have 1/4 the determination Josh has...then maybe they too could have a real life!

Sorry for using retarded, but I wanted to get the point across to Mohamed. My brother is profoundly handicapped,so I do understand the meaning of the word. Plus, he did actually pin the woman, not let her get away. There's nothing wrong w/ that. He makes a good living as a stand-up, he was just in a tight spot when it came to his house issue. He has a family to keep. Can all of you come up w/ money to pay off your house w/n 30 days if need be?
