How did I know the super dramatic Judge Larry Seidlin from Anna Nicole’s whole mess of a court case wanted his own TV show? I MUST BE PSYCHIC.
“Judge Larry” may have landed his long-awaited TV show. “Psychic Court” will take litigants and viewers into the world of the paranormal.
After gaining national notoriety for his emotional and at times tearful handling of the 2007 televised court battle over Anna Nicole Smith’s remains, Larry Seidlin was rumored to be a contender for his own courtroom TV show.
No networks have yet bitten, but the now-retired Broward Circuit judge has shot a pilot for “Psychic Court,” which is being marketed for cable or syndication.
On air, the gregarious judge will consult with mediums, astrologists, tarot card readers and faith-based sensitives to decide family court, divorce court and small claims disputes, according to PR Newswire.
“Psychics, clairvoyants and the telepathic are much like judges in that they possess tremendous intuition,” Seidlin, 60, said in a news release Monday. “I often rely on my intuition to determine who’s being truthful and who’s lying, and in ‘Psychic Court’ I’ll benefit from the assistance of those who are experienced in the paranormal. It’s going to be amazing.”
I just threw up a little bit in my mouth. And in poking around in Google….I mean, you can read the mission and values of the Florida State Courts and say that a psychic court may actually fit the description. Pig bastards.
So what is it about this Judge Larry goofball (besides a famewhore)? I had to go look him up, and was delighted to find that even his own Wikipedia rats him out:
As judge during the Anna Nicole Smith body custody hearing, Judge Seidlin was involved in some controversial actions, such as making one-liners and other attempts at humor which some who know him said is normal for him, but led many to speculate that his actions and comments were for the cameras in the courtroom and were made as an attempt to secure a courtroom television show similar to Judge Judy‘s. The judgment was given in what some have viewed as an overly theatrical style. Apparently, the Judge was weeping and fumbling his words, though others close to him have said that his courtroom conduct was genuine.
I’m surprised he himself is not constantly editing it to defend himself. He even has his own website, where he touts his book. Dear Larry: people like you will bring about the downfall of society. I sentence you to forty years of LAME.
