Another Dirty Lawsuit

June 6, 2011 | 1:01 PM | Local | By Rebecca Bogdansky

Nik Richie, (a.k.a Hooman Karamian, a.k.a. Corbin Grimes) head honcho of The Dirty has been sued once again, to no one’s surprise. Chicago woman Lauren Lee Gauck claims the nude photos of her on thedirty.com were juxtaposed with someone else’s body and is suing Richie for a ‘dirty’ penny– $50 mill, to permanently remove the photos in hopes of saving her ‘stellar’ reputation as a television reporter. That $50 mill could be hard to lock down since a federal communication law says a website cannot be held responsible for content posted by users. Way to get around that one, Richie.

The lawsuit came just as Richie cleared his plate of several others—and won. Richie recently tweeted his victories for two other lawsuits and thanked the First Amendment.  We’re curious to see how this one plays out since Richie lost some legal battles in the past (including having to pay up $11 million to an NFL cheerleader last year). The same day the mishap between this latest lawsuit went public, he tweeted “Just finished another great workout. I feel like $50 Million bucks,” So for now it’s business as usual for Richie and the Dirty Army aka humiliating America.

The Dirty’s Nik Richie & Shayne Lamas Are Expecting

April 20, 2011 | 3:47 PM | People | By Frank Johnson

Scottsdale’s fav scumbag, Nik Richie is expecting a child with his fellow psuedo-celebrity wife, Shayne Lamas. So, um, congratulations? Richie (real name Hooman Karamian) is infamous for creating a just truly awful website called The Dirty, where he and other fine folks post pics of club chicks and Jersey Shore dudes and then make fun of them. Weee. Formerly based in Scottsdale, Richie slimed his way over to the bright lights of LA a few years back. But that didn’t stop him from creating a minor hullabaloo a few month back when he revealed that one of The Dirty’s first sleeziod contributors was none other than Ben Quayle, aka AZ’s newly elected US Congressman.

Shayne Lamas, meanwhile, is best known for being the spawn of somewhat-famous TV actor, Lorenzo Lamas, as well ‘winning’ The Bachelor a few years back. Needless to say, her TV engagement did not stick. However, it appears she’s found true love with Hooman, whom she married after partying with him in Vegas for a few hours.

Mazel Tov, kids.

ToolScottsdale’s (embarrassingly) own narcissist, Hooman Karamian (aka Nik Richie, aka Dirty.com founder) sat down with Dr. Phil recently to defend his “service to society” as well as send out another desperate cry for attention (wait, isn’t that what his whole site is doing?). Wife, Shayne Lamas, was also in attendance discussing the couple’s relationship and Hooman’s “business.” Get all the Dirty deets (if you can stand it) after the jump.
