Alex Trebek Burglary Suspect

I'm a Prostitute -- Not a Thief

8/11/2011 8:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Alex Trebek Suspect

The woman who allegedly stole a bunch of stuff from Alex Trebek's San Francisco hotel room last month is a prostitute, not a thief ... so says her lawyer.

The "Jeopardy" host claims the female suspect, 56-year-old Lucinda Moyers, broke into his hotel room and jacked $650 in cash, a bracelet and other items on July 26 ... and then he injured himself chasing her down the hallway.

But Moyers' lawyer, Mark Jacobs (not the designer) -- tells the San Francisco Examiner the woman was at the hotel to meet an unidentified john ... and did not break into Trebek's room.

Jacobs has not given specific details on how Trebek and Moyers crossed paths.

Story developing ...

The photograph doesn´t have a caption, so I´m confused. Is that the hooker or Alex Trebek´s wife?

When people hire prostitutes they often have them just walk into their rooms without knocking (less noise reduces the overall chance of being caught). This prostitute may have just entered the wrong room, and when she saw it belonged to a sleeping Alex Trebek and his wife, she proceeded to rob them blind.

Why did he chase her? He was probably just angry that someone was stealing his stuff and had violated his rights to safety and privacy (I'd be pissed if someone walked in on me and my wife). If the thief had been a 7 foot tall linebacker, Alex probably wouldn't have chased them, but after seeing the assailant was a shriveled up old lady he probably thought he had a good chance of holding her there until the cops arrived.

And if you’re still not convinced, go ahead and look up Alex’s wife (Jean Currivan-Trebek) on Google images and you will see that she is HAWT! Alex would not pay for chopped liver when he could have prime rib for free (yeah, you know what I mean). The only remaining possibility is that Alex and Jean hired her for a threesome, but with their income, they probably would have hired someone who didn’t look like Yoda.

I worked in a NYC hotel and yes, rich handsome men would bring women off the street and the yellow pages who look just like that woman. Its a nasty high they get having a worthless woman sexually gratify them. In public these men hire models and trophy wives to escort them. In private they would rather humiliate a drug addict or homeless woman for a few laughs. They simply cant get a hard on with a beautiful woman becuase the performance anxiety and rejection factor is so overwheming. When they are finished with these women they spit on them--and thier wives have the nerve to spit on them as well. These guys are too cheap and mentally ill to hire the expensive models.......Now Alex is pretending he is the victim. LOL

Yeah, random women often wander into luxury hotels, go up the elevator, and break into rooms for a few bucks and a watch...It's not odd that famous men get off on fugly women...Look at Arnold, Letterman, Hugh Grant...It's part of their pathology...If you believe that this was just some random woman, then you must be a member of the Casey Anthony jury...

Cha-Cha "No, Alex Trebek has had 2 wives and has 2 children with current wife Jean Currivan who he married in 1990."

I stand corrected.
