'Raising Sextuplet' Dad, Bryan Masche, Arrested In Arizona

Bryan Masche should plead “Temporary Insanity” at his arraignment date. The star of the reality-TV show “Raising Sextuplets” (WE TV) was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and making threats of violence this last weekend in Arizona. Oh, and don’t forget to throw in “resisting arrest” with that package too. As ratings stunts go, this could go either way, and the insanity defense is as long as any other shot, so he might as well take it in this case.

In “Raising Sextuplets” the camera(s) follows Bryan Masche and wife around, showing the carefully edited and crafted for drama joys and strains of having six kids at once. Holy Mother of Mary with a Plan B Pill, I’m a father of three, but two were spaced out three years apart and the third, nine years later. I literally feel out-numbered three-to-one by my toddler girl… on a good day. i simply cannot fathom dealing with six young children all at once. I’m not saying I condone or defend Bryan Masche’s alleged actions, I’m just saying I understand a fraction of the stress he must’ve been under… theoretically.

Now the news say Bryan Masche was visiting family at the time, so… he wasn’t at his home but at relatives? Whatever- he was yelling at some family members when he allegedly lost it, and it was bad enough that it prompted someone to place the call to the authorities. The Marshall’s Office in Camp Verde acknowledged that they had placed Bryan Masche under arrest and that he did not go quietly either. After a brief jail stop he was released after posting $3,500 for a bond.

No doubt, this will all play out on “Raising Sextuplets” unless, like Jon in whateverthehell show he was in, Bryan Masche just put his virtual foot in his reality-tv mouth.

Survivor Nicaragua… Pro or Contra?

Survivor Nicaragua just proves to me that the Survivor 2010 version of the franchise is bone-dry, sperm-less and utterly devoid of intestinal fortitude pr creativity. If they really wanted to be all about “survival under adverse conditions” then we’d have Survivor- Mexican Drug War or Survivor- Cannibal Island, and not just another bungle in the jungle. How about Survivor- Great White Shark Farm?

Los Angeles Times Mobile NewsOne of the stand-outs of the Survivor- Nicaragua cast is one ex-NFL coach Jimmy Johnson. Blocked from being Survivor years ago, Johnson had heart surgery, lost weight, got healthy, had a laser-eye implanted in his skull. In other words… he was ready for a comeback on Survivor Nicaragua… for the first time. A breakout… whatever.

But coaching for the Dallas Cowboys in consecutive Super Bowl Championship seasons hardly prepares him for the back-stabbing, individual video segments Hell that is Survivor Nicaragua land. That nice head of hair isn;’t going to be an asset here, pal.

But damn, if he didn’t act the Coach when he addressed his team. He told them he wasn’t going to win, but one of them would. He just wanted in on the fun of the ride. Then he made them do 100 laps and 476 sit ups.

He’s either a coach at heart or one Machiavellian mofo who just got all Sun-Tzu up in the face of his adversaries… uhm.. I mean, team. At 67 year old, I feel this man best represents something I tell younger people all the time… “Age and Treachery beats Youth and Enthusiasm… every time.” Survivor Nicaragua, my ass… This is Survivor Real Life on an SSDI Income. Represent!
