Say It Ain’t Joe

March 7, 2011 | 5:05 PM | Art & Entertainment | By Staff

It’s official. Two of the most annoying, blowhardiest people on earth are filming a reality TV show together here in Phoenix. Yes, the walking/talking PR stunt, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, has teamed up with the washed up action star, Steven Seagal, to film season three of Seagal’s hit TV show, “Lawman” here in Maricopa County.

Seagal, who’s already a member of Joe’s completely phony Civilian Posse, announced in a press release that, “I have a lot of friends in the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, so when Sheriff Joe Arpaio invited me to join them, there wasn’t a moment’s hesitation … now that I live there, I want to help the Sheriff fight [crime] the best way I know how. It’s an honor to serve.”

Which sounds great and all, except that according to media reports, Seagal’s move has a lot more to do with skeevy lawsuits and a staff of “young female Russian ‘Attendants’ available for his sexual needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”

First, here are few more gems from the A&E network’s official press release about Segal and the Sheriff’s collaboration:

“A&E’s hit series “Steven Seagal Lawman” is going back into production for a third season, chronicling martial arts expert and international film star Steven Seagal’s extraordinary life in law enforcement, this time in Maricopa County, Arizona. In the new season, Seagal has joined up with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and will execute outstanding arrest warrants, respond to emergency situations, work with the narcotics unit, and much more.

“Mr. Seagal has been on this horse before so to speak and will be an asset to this fine organization,” says Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. “We look forward to working with him. We’re a little unusual here, which should make things pretty interesting.”

Sounds like some serious so-bad-its-good potential here. And much better than the Valley’s last attempt at Reality TV, Sunset Daze, which followed a bunch of Sun City retirees around as they danced on stripper poles and talked sex toys. Please hold on while we go toss our cookies.

OK, so let’s discuss what really inspired Seagal to bring his talents to our fair city. According to the Phoenix New Times, “Seagal’s cop show was given the boot last year by [a Louisiana Sheriff], after Seagal was accused of sexual harassment, trafficking in women for sex, and wrongful termination in a civil complaint filed by a former swimsuit model named Kayden Nguyen.

The suit was ultimately dismissed, but not before nuggets like this were reported by TMZ.com and other outlets: ‘Mr. Seagal had been keeping two young female Russian ‘Attendants’ on staff who were available for his sexual needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.'”

Russian, huh? Better hope they weren’t illegals.

    If what you say were true he would be in jail, after all he does not have the big star clout to cover what he has been accused of doing. this smear stinks

    hate to say but the scary truth is, i investigated some of this human trafficking myself in the phoenix area a few years back, and if i disclosed who was involved, i would probably be six feet under. i hid for long time.
    the phoenix people who call themselves lawmen, are the N in Nazi. they accidentally blew my friends head off. they called it a sympathetic finger. this is no lie. so arpaio fans please put down your fans before you become his next target. sociopaths do things just because. they don’t need a reason. believe in those you know best. creating crime isn’t crime fighting. a tank in your neighborhood? this should frighten us all! this is not safety. arpaio is laughing at those who buy this crap. have you considered the tank drivers IQ or training? it’s a tank but he is no marine. God forbid a soldier in hunt mode strolling the area. good God! believe me, the real tank driver wasn’t popular in school and hopefully you weren’t the one making fun of him.
