Giudice Leaves Prison, Downey Gets a A Pardon

Real Housewives Star Teresea Giudice, has served a year for tax fraud, and left Danbury yesterday and went home. (I guess she was able to bypass the Halfway House.)

Gov. Jerry Brown gave Robert Downey Jr. a Xmas Eve gift of a pardon.

    Robert Downey Jr has always been a favorite (5.00 / 2) (#3)

    of mine.

    Back in the day day I was associated with the TV show Ally McBeal on which he had a major part. He was lit all the time. Courteous, thoughtful, kind, empathetic, wickedly funny, and completely blasted, 24/7.

    My SiL was a producer on the first job he did after he got clean. I'm not even sure how that little indy production got insurance on him, but somehow they did. She said he was the consummate professional on that shoot. His actions on that shoot proved that he had gotten the monkey off his back and laid the foundation for the studios to be able to hire him again, and the rest is history.

    Nice job Gov, Downey Jr is the real deal.

    With the work of his father, Robert Downey Sr, and the culture he almost certainly grew up in makes cuttng him some slack much easier.

    I love RD Sr .  I love Putney Swope.  I really really love Greasers Palace.  But man.......
