Hell hath no fury…

June 1, 2009

From the “You couldn’t make this up” file:

Israeli TV star Dudu Topaz , once known as the “TV Ratings King”, has been arrested on suspicion that he hired a couple of heavies to put the hurt on TV execs and an agent who turned down his pitch to make a comeback – 5 years after his show was yanked from Israel’s airwaves.

The assaults left two men and a woman battered and bruised (and presumably somewhat vindicated in their decision not to extend Topaz’s career)

Our report on the story of a fallen star is here. See the stories from Ynet here and from Haaretz here.

And here’s some video of Dudu in happier times courtesy of Channel 2.
