Michelle Rodriguez Chooses Slammer Over Trash Detail

Just when you think Hollywood can’t sink any lower, it swallows itself up and becomes a black hole of self-importance.

Lost star and known drunk, Michelle Rodriguez, convicted of drunk-driving while on location in Hawaii shooting the hit ABC drama Lost was sentenced to five days in jail, a choice she made over serving 240 hours of community service.

Michelle I mean I guess it’s her choice, but could she seem anymore like a low-rent be-otch? Her lawyer’s statement on the matter and her choice really says about all I need to hear from the hardass ho, “I would suspect that because she has a hard time even going out for a meal without being intruded upon for an autograph or photograph, it’s really difficult for her to do community service.”

Yeah, she’s so freaking famous she can’t even be bothered. Showing up for jail with three books in hand and a casual upbeat smile, Michelle is finally going to get “street cred” she’s always wanted. Unfortunately for Michelle, movie bike chicks and real biker chicks might have a different idea of “hard time.”

The drunk driving incident (not her first) dates back to December when she and fellow Lost cast mate Cynthia Watros were pulled over for obvious weaving and crossing lanes. According to the police report Rodriguez, in true Hollywood style was a pain in the ass, being “very argumentative” and kept interrupting the police officer as he was explaining the drunk driving arrest. Rodriguez also pointed out “I don’t f***ing belong here.”

Yes, sweetheart, you belong with the other D-listers who will be starring with you on cheesy reality TV shows in the very near future titled: Too Fast, Too Drunk, Too Important For Community Service.

    I’ve never seen this show, barely know who this actress is, so I don’t really care, but I’ll bet if she did do the community service there’d be complaints that she got off easy because of her celebrity status. Damned if you don, damned if you don’t.

    good point, she still sucks ass

    another “celebrity” who doesn’t get that she’s just a disposable part in hollywood’s machine…we’ll see her in “the surreal world” in 2 seasons…and then in a where is she now feature 5 years later when she’s doing dinner theater in the rust belt.

    I’d probably take the jailtime too, probably becuase I’m a selfish jerk. The sentence was reduced to 4 days in jail instead of the 5 or 6 weeks it would have taken to put in the 240hrs. That’s like taking a long all expense weekend instead of working for five weeks. As an added bonus you get a lifetime to brag about your tough times in the slammer!

    The bad news: no chance at a job as a pizza delivery driver when her career goes south.

  • Eric Olsen

    also a good point – her ass-sucking continues unabated nonetheless

  • RogerMDillon

    Five days of reading over 30 days of work. Sounds like an easy call even outside of Hollywood.

    Maybe the celebrities wouldn’t feel so important if their every move wasn’t covered in tabloids and blogs. You’re either part of the solution or part of the problem.

  • Eric Olsen

    equally good point, but …

    Dawn, so does this mean Michelle’s lower on your shitlist than Mr. Cruise?

    Anyway, I agree with Roger, if you’re just going to some low-security jail, it’s an easy call. If Martha Stewart can do it, why not anyone else?

    Although I’d wouldn’t bet M-Rod’s career will be gone as soon as you think— there aren’t a lot of Latin actresses better known for the ‘tough girl’ role than her. She certainly better than J.Lo did in ‘Enough’

    Given the increase of Latin TV viewers and moviegoers in the U.S., I think MR’s only downfall as an actress could be if her rep on-set is known as difficult. The work will only be increasing otherwise, in my humble opinion.

    not speaking for Dawn here — she had to take the little lad to the doctor — I believe it’s her attitude that Dawn objects to. That and the second DUI thing – she should probably get hold of that problem.

  • Dawn

    How many Latin “tough girl” roles does Hollywood need? Maybe I can slap on a fake tan and get some tattoos and make me some tough girl flicks and sit back and watch the dough roll in.

    Why on earth do people defend these criminals? Just because some one is famous doesn’t make them better than the rest of us. Good Lord.

    I giggled when I saw this story and the “To Catch a Predator” ad right next to it.

    Carry on, grown ups.

    sort of an Internet mash-up

    Not to discount the DUI, she’s an actress. I hated her at first in “Lost,” but in the episode of 5/3, when she was given a more human side to show, I began to empathize with the character of Ana Lucia. I was upset that she was killed off at the end of that episode!
