This Week's Biggest Losers 04/15/07

4/14/2007 4:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Don ImusIn a perfect Zone, the forthcoming sex tape from Season Two "American Idol" contestant Olivia Mojica would play out to the sounds of William Hung's "She Bangs," but for this sorry lot, a simple funeral march will suffice.

Don Imus: We had Don on last week's list, but since then, events have conspired to put him in the running for This Year's Biggest Loser. Stripped of his MSNBC simulcast and WFAN-AM syndicated morning radio show, he's now pushing the control buttons of "Imus in the Mourning." Would producer Bernie McGurk's ill-fated comments have sparked as big a furor had they been exchanged with a top-selling rap artist? You know, the kind that keeps radio parent company Viacom in the green via MTV and BET? Hard to say, but with the loss of Howard Stern and now the 66-year-old Imus, CBS Radio is suffering a serious case of jock shock.



Tom DelayTom DeLay: For the love of a combover, do we really need another he-said-she-said feud pitting a male authority figure against "The View's" Rosie O'Donnell? Apparently, indicted former Congressman DeLay thinks so. Jumping into the fray of the get-Imus bandwagon, DeLay aired out his grievances on CNN and website TownHall.com, dredging up comments from La Rosie that are ancient history. She replied with a blog item entitled "Tommy D," but we think DeLay should take his cue from perennial funny guest Bruce Willis as to what people need right now. On "The Late Show with David Letterman," while perusing a gag list of alleged female conquests handed to him by Dave, the pranking "maxi-super-megastar" confirmed he'd slept with all members of "The View," including Rosie.


Harvey WeinsteinHarvey Weinstein: The PR campaign for Miramax's "Grindhouse" started way back at the 2006 Scream Awards, with co-stars Marley Shelton, Rosario Dawson and Rose McGowan prancing lasciviously around the Pantages Theater stage. Despite months of exploitation incantation, the highly touted Miramax flick was trumped on opening weekend by... the Ice Cube family sequel "Are We Done Yet?" Is Weinstein done yet? Not quite. Although he is threatening to break up and re-release the Rodriguez and Tarantino halves as two stand-alone movies, take a hint, Harvey. The stars of today's exploitation industry are folks with names like Anna Nicole, Brad and Angelina.

Joe FrancisJoe Francis: There is no man boob flashing going on in this extended edition of "Multi-Millionaires Gone Wild." At least not yet. Based on court documents filed this week, what we do have is a Mardi Gras of anti-anxiety pills, sleep medication, alleged jail guard bribery, alleged tax evasion and teary-eyed exiting of a Florida courtroom. Francis once bellowed that U.S. District Court Judge Richard Smoak was a "judge gone wild." Thanks to perhaps as much as $20 million in alleged bogus 2002 and 2003 business expense deductions, Francis may well turn out to have been done in by "Tax Accountants Gone Wild." In the blink of a spring break girl's inebriated eye, this say-it-ain't-so-Joe has gone from pondering the menu of a planned chain of themed GGG restaurants ... to possibly sampling the taste of prison food.

David E. KelleyDavid E. Kelley: We'll admit that any guy who is married to Michelle Pfeiffer wakes up every morning a personal winner. Still, the final episode of his canned, mid-season Fox show, "The Wedding Bells," drew just 3.8 million viewers last Friday, Kelley is now struggling with the casting of the planned ABC remake of the BBC-TV series "Life on Mars." What gets us is that Kelley has had to glance across the pond for inspiration, rather than relying on a craggy corner of his prolific writer brain. It's no accident that the only show flying these days for Kelley, "Boston Legal," has one foot firmly planted in the procedural world. Maybe instead of putting Pfeiffer in his 2008 flick "Chasing Montana," Kelley should turn to a Calista Flockhart/Harrison Ford reality TV series called "Chasing Wyoming."

You thought you were so witty and funny and entertaining. Well, you aren't and you went down and out. Goodbye. Cya. Wouldn't want to be you.

But I have to say Al and Joker Jesse are worse IMO.

I think the punishment is appropriate, but only because Imus has made a career out of making sexist, racist comments. He tripped up one too many times and his number was finally called. If this had been a first (1st) offense, I would say the original punishment of numerous on-air apologies and a 2 week suspension without pay and meeting with the team to apologize in person would have sufficed.

This sickens me. Not just because Don Imus is a total asshole to begin with and that he made some VERY inappropiate remarks, but that nothing has been said about rappers who CONSTANTLY degrade women of all races in their so called songs. Please explain to me how a radio DJ can be fired and basically banished from society while so called "artists" continue to degrade women and win awards for their songs. "It's hard out here for a pimp." Yeah......true art. All I'm saying is if it walks like a duck.......you know the rest. I think what Imus said was disgusting, but I don't see Jesse or Al demanding that Three Six Mafia or any other nasty-ass rappers apologize or get dropped from their labels. Where's the equality in all of this?????????? Oh yeah. If you're white and call a woman a ho, you're a racist, but if you're a rapper, you're nominated for a grammy. SICKENING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If they are going to stop him then stop all the Black's that sing song's using MUCH MORE COMMENTS then he said. And its NOT OK for blacks to talk to each other like that and not expect others NOT to do the same.
Like all the Black comedians say bad things and No one tells them to knock it off.
There is Two signels going around and its not just fair all should stop this crap and learn to talk right. if i had a dollar for all the things ive heard about white people i would be rich. And God knows how Blacks talk about one and other, and the songs thats sick.
Its time to tell everyone enough we will not tollarate anymore from anyone white purple black yellow ect. STOP>>clean up your act. No one wants to hear it. But u dont here other people crying all the time. They have to clean up there own first then maby it will get around it not to cool to talk like that. That Angle Guy was trying to tell u how it realy is but no one wanted to hear him? And he spoke the truth.

Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson is one of the reasons there is so much racism in this country, and they carry the name of Rev. at the beginning of their names, as men of God?

Give me a break, men of God is for all colors of skin, not only black, and for forgiveness, these two racial idiots are for neither one.

We don't see them apologizing to the Duke LaCrosse players for all the things they called them when they were accused of raping a black woman and now released of all charges against them, and we never will, because they do not apologize for their wrongdoings against white people.

Imus has been treated like he had killed somebody, sure his comment was bad, but these girls, the Rutgers Basketball team made less noise about it than anybody until they were splashed all over the news, newspapers, etc. and forced to comment, they never heard of Don Imus, and was only told by someone else what had even been said by Imus.

And I cannot believe this is all that has been on TV all week long, on every channel, every program, all over the internet, radio, OMG, I think Imus has made this team rich by all the airtime about all of it sinse it all happened.

But I don't think that he deserved to be fired !

#11 You are a hypocrit. Blacks should not use language that demeans our culture. White people should not use language that demeans our culture. The black community needs to show the World that we will not tolerate the denigration of women the way rappers choose to do. Don't you see that rap is heightening the tensions between whites and blacks? Don't you know how hard our parents, grandparents, and great grandparents worked to fight bigotry? Child, there is some good rap, but there is some bad stuff to that isn't good for ANY young person. Imus was mocking the stereotypical way our young black youth portrays females of color. Where do you think he got that idea? RAP!

I'm so sick of the blacks screaming over anything said. They say what ever they want but then want to cry and then of course do one otheir "marches" if something's said that they don't like. It's like we're having to bow down to take care of the "wannabe disabled" group because they're too stupid to stand up and do something that is actually moral or even appears to be somewhat human.
