Former Hell's Angels Sues "Sons" Producer

Chuck Zito, who is reported to be the former Pres of the NYC Hells Angels is suing FX, claiming they stole his idea, or rather Kurt Sutter stole his idea about the hit series Sons of Anarchy. Zito says he developed an idea for a show about an “outlaw motorcycle club” back in 1998 and pitched it to FX in 2004.

FX did not have an official comment but producer Kurt Sutter, in his blog, SutterInk responded, and didn’t mince words. “I’m sure this blog will get my ass kicked and begin a new wave of death threats, but fuck it. I’m tired of these fucking losers getting ink.”

Almost from the start of development of the show, Zito has been telling anyone who will listen that FX took his idea and gave it to Sutter.

Sutter claims Zito is just looking for a quick buck.

“He tried to file a legal claim a few months back and it was so preposterous that I believe FX legal simply dismissed it.  So he’s pissed and he’s desperate.  What we are witnessing now is his “plan B”.  And it’s outlaw mentality in full gear.  He will take his bogus claim and shop it to every celebrity rag and website hungry for topical gossip, he’ll go on Celebrity Justice, TMZ, any sleaze forum or cable access show that will have him.  He will become a bitter, juvenile gnat buzzing in the ear of FX and myself.  He will use lies, intimidation, and his big mouth to become such a pain in the ass, in the hope that Fox will throw some money at him to shut the fuck up.  It’s not a coincidence that his claim hits while academy members are voting.”

Zito isn’t saying much at the moment, but has said that Sutter had no knowledge of motorcycles, gangs, clubs or the true biker world and only got the show because of his work on “The Shield” and because he was the golden boy at FX.  Zito is seeking $5 million dollars in damages.

Sutter address that allegation in his blog as well, saying, ” THERE HAVE BEEN DOZENS OF OUTLAW MOTORCYCLE TV DRAMAS PITCHED IN THE LAST TEN YEARS. NONE OF THEM HAS MADE IT TO SERIES, EXCEPT SOA.  BECAUSE THEY SUCKED. The same way there were dozens of mob family pitches before the Sopranos and crime scene pitches before CSI.”

It seems the verbal smack down has begun.  First bitch slap belongs to Sutter.



They Just Can't Leave Jesse Alone

On the website The Spoof, is a tongue-in-cheek report that Sandra Bullock has agreed to star in a movie titled, The Motorcycle Punk & His Ugly-As-Hell Tattooed Cycle Chicks. Her co-star would be comedian George Lopez. If you’re bored, the article is good for a chuckle.


Jesse Says He’s Most Hated Man in the World

In an interview with ABC News, celebrity motorcycle builder Jesse James admitted he destroyed the perfect relationship with wife Sandra Bullock but says that he was physically abused as a child and his father broke his arm when he was six years old.

I remember my dad laughed at me when I hit the ground and called me a dummy,” James said before his emotions caused him to choke up, and while fighting back tears said “It’s really tough for me to think about now because…Sunny’s the age that I was when my dad broke my arm.”

Sunny is James’ six year old daughter.

James admitted that in rehab he went through a lot of emotional turmoil.  ”I’ve cried more in rehab in the last 30 days than I have in my entire life,” he told “Nightline” host, Vicki Mabrey. “No B.S. That’s the truth.”

As for the number of women he may have slept with while married to Bullock, James declined to put a number to it. ” It doesn’t matter,” he said. “It could have been a million…bad is bad no matter what it is.”

Hefner Gives Advice to Jesse James and Bombshell Apologizes

You know you’ve screwed up your relationship when the guy who practically invented, and most certainly perfected, the art of multiple partners, (at the same time) calls you a “real creep.”

84 year old Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy and the original poster child for casual sex, said he’s considering settling down and thinks sexual addiction is a cop out.   He said this about celebrity motorcycle builder and reality TV star Jesse James.

When you get married you make a commitment. Sandra’s husband looks like a real creep. The real immorality of infidelity is the lying.”

Jesse with some bike builder...

Whoa there Jesse.  I think Hugh just call you a lying creep.  Yes, he did.

But he didn’t stop there.  He said your rehab is a sham.

He can if he wants to. But this idea that it’s an addiction is a cop-out; Some people get obsessed with sex, but it’s not like alcohol or drugs; He did it because he could get away with it.”

Then there’ s Bombshell McGee, who offered Sandra an apology that reeks of either stupidity or….ignorance.

She said: “Sandra, I’m sorry for your embarrassment. I’m sorry all this is public. I’m sorry for everything. I feel bad for Sandra. I want to give her a heartfelt apology.

Ok well, I just threw up a little bit in my mouth on that one.  But wait, it gets better.  Bombshell claims that Jesse lied to her and told her that he was separated from Bullock!  Uh, how hard would it be to check that story out?

She told Australian TV show ‘Today Tonight’: “I feel like I was duped just as much as Sandra was. I feel like I was lied to just as much as she was. If Jesse was upfront with me in the beginning, we wouldn’t be in this situation.”

In case anyone cares, Sandra is saying she’s going to divorce James when he finishes sex rehab, and Hugh is saying he’s thinking about marrying his newest girlfriend, Crystal Harris.  He’s even kicked out all his other gal pals. Ok, so we’ve strayed a bit from strictly motorcycle related on that tidbit but the chuckle factor just proved too much to pass up.

We’ll leave you with one of our favorite quotes from Hefner.

“One of the things I’ve tried to do with my life is redefine the boundaries that I think are very limiting. I’m not suggesting that everybody should have three girlfriends, or necessarily have girlfriends living with them. I think there are many, many options to living your life.”

Well, isn’t that what Jesse was doing?  Redefining his boundaries?  Discovering new options?  C’mon Hef, cut the boy some slack.

Motorcycle Vehicle of Choice for Pitt/Anniston Meeting

Brad Pitt Escapes Photographers

According to a former bodyguard for movie star Brad Pitt, the celebrity biker used his motorcycle in at least one clandestine meeting with Jennifer Anniston.

The bodyguard is quoted in the magazine IN TOUCH as saying,  ”They were very cozy, clearly embracing. Several times, Brad and Jen were hugging and kissing.”

The bodyguard when on to tell the magazine that he alerted the pair that paparazzi was nearby and the duo split up and Pitt escaped undetected on his motorcycle.    The full face helmet probably helped.
