30 Months in a cell?

I hope he gets to keep a copy of the tape then!

Probably not

But with a little luck he gets to impersonate her, for the viewing pleasure of his new friends.

I'm wondering about the logistics

So explain please

(1) How do you get an adjacent room 2 our of 3 times, without a clear reason (like travelling together). "I'm her agent" shouldn't work if you book and pay on totally different dates.

(2) When I'm in my hotel room, the fraction of time I'm naked in front of the peephole is quasi nil. Maybe the odd passage between shower and bed, yes, but the beds most certainly aren't in view of the door. So how many hours as the guy been standing at the door, taping? What about witnesses?

I think we need to be told. All in all there must be some talent/intelligence involved here, and hours of persevering work. Maybe not enough to deserve to sell it as you suggest... But it would be interesting info, to avoid similar stuff happening.

WTF?

Erm... NO!

If you can't distinguish between nekkid pictures of people who consent for your pleasure, and someone who's had their personal privacy grossly invaded, then you deserve a spell in a cell yourself.

The freak STALKED the woman to a number of locations, and arranged spy cameras - this was totally planned and pre-meditated! That *IS* one creepy guy...

Title goes somewhere steamy

Is this "sexiest sportscaaster" in the hollywood sense (smile that cuts her face in two, false tits and totally unobtainable or approachable) or "sexiest sportscaster" in the Vegas sense (films on the net, too many blow jobs)...the paris thing?

For me, sexy would be Gaby Logan after several pints of black and tan in a little pub just off the Stirling Castle approach, not sitting in a doc's somewhere with an STD caught from a misplaced bj.

No such thing..

Never heard of her until now!

Seriously, I'm sure it was very disturbing and will make her more nervous in future, but you can't buy "good" publicity can you?!

OK, I've gone too far...

Just imagine...

...what kind of sentence the guys who run Naked News would get on that basis. It would probably be measured in millennia not years.

335,000?! She needs ...

to get over herself.... seems like it's more about the money than `all the damage` having someone take sneaky pictures of her butt has done... poor love... how does she sleep at night being adored and lusted over. Doesn't seem to scare her away from the public eye though does it....

not a lot of sympathy here, as you may be picking up on...

Re:Ruff

I went to school with a bloke like you - any woman short of "perfect" (whatever that means) was denounced as a "pig" or "dog" (& regardless of looks would always refer to them as "that" or "it").

The funny thing was, he was fat, spotty, greasy with a horribly obnoxious personality. In the 15 years I knew him, he never came close to kissing anyone, let alone have a girlfriend or any sex.

Of course, you're not at all like that are you? I'm sure you have to go out in disguise to avoid the mobs of beautiful women hunting for you. Grow up FFS
