Court TV to Cover Trial of Robert Durst for Murder of Susan Berman

Published

on

LOS ANGELES — Court TV will provide coverage of real estate heir and subject of the HBO Docu-series The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst. Durst’s murder trial in Los Angeles, starting March 2.

Jury selection is complete, and the trial has begun. Court TV will air opening statements, closing arguments and the verdict, with on-going reports of the camera-less testimony and the trial’s most significant events.

Durst, 76, is accused of shooting and killing his longtime confident Susan Berman in her Beverly Hills home in 2000 to silence her from telling investigators what she knew about the 1982 disappearance of his wife, Kathleen, in New York. Making this case more sensational is that the defendant is the subject of the HBO documentary The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst.

In the last scene of The Jinx, Durst went to a bathroom and not realizing his microphone was still on said, “There it is. You’re caught. What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.” After The Jinx aired, the investigation into Berman’s death gained momentum as the filmmakers unearthed a letter Durst had written to Berman. The envelope had nearly identical handwriting to a note sent anonymously to police directing them to Berman’s lifeless body. 

Durst has pleaded not guilty to the murder charge.

The unusual case has already been called “fascinating” by Superior Court Judge Mark Windham, the judge who will preside over the trial.  Judge Windham has told prospective jurors, “If you’re going to have one trial where you’re going to be a juror, this is the trial. These are the best lawyers I’ve ever seen…. You’re never going to have an experience like this.”

This will be the second time Durst has stood trial for murder. He was acquitted of the murder and dismemberment of neighbor Morris Blake in Texas in 2003 in a trial covered by the original Court TV. The former Galveston County Judge who presided over that trial, Susan Criss, will appear on Court TV live this afternoon to be interviewed by Seema Iyer.

NYC Health Dept.’s Sex Tips Amid Coronavirus, No Orgies

NYC Health Dept.'s Sex Tips Amid Coronavirus, No Orgies

NEW YORK (TMZ) — The Big Apple doesn’t want its residents banging like rabbits during the coronavirus outbreak — so it’s got a set of strict (and graphically specific) guidelines on how to get it on during these contagious times.

The NYC Health Department posted recommendations over the weekend on how folks can have sex, while keeping the risk of catching COVID-19 low. For starters, they say sex with another person probably isn’t a good idea right now … so, they suggest masturbating.

Read the Document

If you are going to have sex with someone else, they have recommendations on who to bang first. The department says if you must, sleep with someone you live with, and try NOT to screw anyone outside the household if you can help. They also say limit the number of partners you’re hooking up with … which probably means no orgies either. Aw, man!

The most graphic suggestions come in the form of rim jobs (anus to mouth contact) and oral sex too. They say don’t eat ass right now — it probably ain’t safe — and if you’re gonna get slurped up by a partner … use a condom or a dental dam to reduce saliva swapping.

The Health Dept. also notes … if your partner’s not feeling well, skip the sex. And, for all the online daters, keep the interaction there for now too. What a time to be alive!

Nevada Brothel Demands Masked Sex During Coronavirus Scare

Published

on

NEVADA (TMZ) — The coronavirus has changed the way most of us live in fundamental ways, which made us wonder what was happening with some of the most intimate contacts — sex in brothels.

We contacted a half dozen of the biggest brothels in the Las Vegas area, and they’re all open for business … with an asterisk. One brothel manager said all customers must wear masks when they walk in and even during sex. It appears the women do not wear masks.

Another brothel manager said an enormous bottle of hand sanitizer sits on the bar, and Clorox wipes are used frequently to wipe down doorknobs, bathroom counters and other surfaces. Every brothel we called said they sanitized their joints on a regular basis.

And, one of the places told us they will send any women home even if she has a slight cold.

And, then there’s the famed Mustang Ranch … they say customers have their temperature checked before entering.

Woman Arrested for Threatening to Cough on LAPD Officer

Published

By

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — Coronavirus seems to have folks thinking they can do as they please — one LAPD officer claims he experienced it firsthand with a rogue, and possibly contagious, car parker.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … a cop in L.A. came across a woman this weekend whom he says was parked in a handicap spot without a proper placard, and when he approached her over the violation … we’re told things turned sickly.

Our sources say the woman almost instantly became combative with the officer, threatening to cough on him and give him coronavirus … something she claimed she’d contracted.

Well, that didn’t deter the cop … we’re told he arrested her for felony criminal threats. Unclear if the woman actually had COVID-19, but … we’re told the officer gloved up for the bust and washed up after.

As for whether the criminal threat charge will stick, that’s also hard to say for sure — as we’re told something like that is considered a wobbler — meaning if she’s eventually charged, the D.A. has the option to leave it a felony, or reduce to a misdemeanor.

Nonetheless, it’s pretty crazy that an alleged parking violation escalated to a viral face-off. Crazy times, indeed.
