ShamWow Pitchman

Beats Hooker

to the Punch

3/27/2009 6:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The pitchman for the super absorbent ShamWow has been arrested for not having good clean fun ... unless you consider hiring a hooker who almost bites your tongue off fun.


Vince Shlomi was arrested in Miami Beach last month after cops say he allegedly hired a hooker, whom he took back to his hotel. According to the arrest affidavit, obtained by The Smoking Gun, Shlomi began kissing the hooker when she allegedly "bit his tongue and would not let go." 

According to cops, Shlomi then punched the prostitute several times until she released his tongue. Both the prostitute and Shlomi were arrested for felony aggravated battery.

Excuse us for living, but it seems justified to punch a hooker when she bites your tongue. Apparently, prosecutors agreed, because they declined to prosecute either one.

Pretty bad when a hooker is so sick of listening to you that she tries to bite your tongue off. Let this be a warning to Billy Mays if he ever decides to hire him some love :)

Guys don't hire hookers for the sex, but for what comes before the sex, cuddling and kissing. If I was the ShamWow guy, I would be getting Russian ass left and right!

For the person who made a comment about its not fair that TMZ is making it seem ok for the shamwow guy to beat the hooker up but not ok for Chris Brown to beat up Rhianna...and blah blah blah aboout how chris browns side of the story isnt out...ITS BECAUSE CHRIS BROWN NEVER MADE A COMMENT ABOUT THE SITUATION...so of course we are goin to take Rhianna's side..but anywho,,those Shamwow and Slap-chop infomercials are the BEST...They always make me laugh. hope he keeps doing commercials
