Golden Globes Leaky Pipe

It Wasn't Poop Water

Exclusive Details

The so-called fecal fiasco at the Golden Globes wasn't as crappy as people first thought ... a rep for the Beverly Hills Fire Department tells TMZ, the stinky water that spilled onto the red carpet wasn't actually sewage.

The rep tells us, the pipe that burst yesterday afternoon -- mere hours before the red carpet arrivals -- was part of an old sprinkler system that hadn't been used in years.

We're told the water -- 150 to 200 gallons worth -- was stale and did smell really bad ... which is probably why people thought it was sewage, but it did NOT contain poo or pee.

Still a pretty s***ty situation.

Ugh, but that water still could have been extremely unhealthy - who knows what microbes and bacteria were flourishing in there?

Sounds like preventive maintenance time, folks!

Kelly Osbourne should know better than to chug a fifth of cheap vodka before stumbling down the Red Carpet; I thought they had security at these events to keep the obsessed fame-seekers away from the celebrities...

As "people" first thought? TMZ, YOU were the one who reported it! That sentence needs to read "as TMZ first thought".

TMZ You guys were lame for breaking the poop water story and your lamer for making a poop water retraction. You guys need to pick and choose the stories you report better because this is just embarrassing.

She's baaaack    

For the record, you assh0les at TMZ, it wasn't a burst pipe, a very hot light was too close to a sensor which set off the sprinkler. As much as I like looking at all the pretty people it would have been awesome if it would have let loose during the red carpet walk!

If I was a resident I would be PISSED(pun) that my tax dollars were being spent to pay state funded employees to clean up for a private entity. If I was a fire fighter and they approached me with the "Oh noes what are we going to do" I would tell them to take off their fancy jackets, grab a mop and do some manual labor for once in their life. That would finally make for some pictures worth seeing on the red carpet.

That small trap-door is actually a place where Ann Hathaway stores her bags of Dog-Poop that she carries around and throws at peoples cars.
Ann has small stash areas all over Hollywood to have a Bag of Poop handy to throw on peoples cars she does not like.

She is the Poop-Package Giver.

No Tiffany s color gift for you, just a cheap
plastic bag of Poop.

I heard it was a sprinkler on CNN BEFORE your stinky story, TMZ. you knew the truth.

We knew that...but we also know TMZ will always jump to the 3rd grade bathroom humor conclusion, whenever possible. Yellow (and brown) journalism, at best.

Someone got fired. That's embarrassing. Plus it's worldwide. Other countries are laughing at America more than they already are now.
