Radio Prank Lands English DJs in Hot Water

Comments Off on Radio Prank Lands English DJs in Hot Water

Let’s say that English radio scandals are a bit juicier than ours…and maybe harder for us to understand.

If I have this right, comedian Russell Brand, who hosted this year’s MTV Video Awards, was fired for making a prank call to 78-year-old Fawlty Towers actor Andrew Sachs, saying he (Brand) slept with his (Sachs’) granddaughter.

This was after Sachs missed a scheduled radio interview, and it sounds like something Howard Stern would do.

But, in this case, not only have Brand and partner Jonathan Ross been suspended, but the granddaughter, Georgina Baillie, admitted it was true, and apparently works as a pay-by-the-hour dominatrix.

Check out some of the details here.

Outraged over the scandal, Britons are also finding out that radio execs at the government-funded BBC are making more than $1.5 million each. It took a sex scandal for someone to realize that?

Meanwhile, Ms. Baillie, who is calling for Brand’s firing for breaking a confidence agreement (this is against the law?), is part of a burlesque troupe called the Satanic Sluts (which might be illegal in some U.S. states).

Howard Stern only wishes he was in the middle of a scandal like this here. People would remember him. You can hear his mind working…maybe if I slept with one of the Bush daughters….oh no…I’m married now….

Stern, by the way, used to be one of America’s top shock jocks. He’s now on Sirius Satellite Radio, which charges $15 a month to hear him.

Can anyone tell me if he’s still funny?
