Mary Delgado arrested again

Bachelor 6 winner Mary Delgado has been arrested again, this time for “disorderly conduct, public intoxication, and resisting arrest,” the AP reports. She was arrested “on Saturday night for public intoxication, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct at Lorina’s Cantina in Del Rio, Texas” after she refused to leave the bar, TMZ says.

Coincidentally and amazingly, that’s the same night that Survivor Gabon cast member Ace Gordon was arrested for nearly the exact same thing: disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest.

And even more astonishingly, Mary went to jail almost exactly one year ago when Mary was arrested for battering Byron Velvick, which she later called “something that just got out of hand.”

The best part: The AP’s story about the new incident reduced Byron, the star of The Bachelor 6, to just “a man she lived with.” TMZ says he bailed her out, so apparently they’re still together.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
