CHICAGO — A federal judge rejected an impassioned plea from a television pitchman for his freedom on Tuesday, ordering U.S. Marshals to lock up Kevin Trudeau for failing to pay a $37 million civil judgment.
The visibly exasperated judge had already ordered that Trudeau be jailed during a hearing in Chicago when Trudeau stood up and asked if he could address the court. The Federal Trade Commission won the judgment after accusing Trudeau of hoodwinking viewers about his weight-loss books.
“There are no more assets to turn over, your honor,” the 50-year-old Trudeau insisted during a 10-minute plea, at times striking a note of desperation. “I’m going to be incarcerated …
The grunge-era superstar band Pearl Jam heads to the XL Center at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25.
Starting with their mid-October tour opener in Pittsburgh, singer Eddie Vedder and company have torn up stages across the Northeast. No two PJ shows are the same; a recent two-night stand at Worcester’s DCU Center rewarded fans with nearly a dozen tour debuts (including one song, “Gone,” that hadn’t been played since 2009) and some spectacular covers: the Who’s “Baba O’Riley,” the Dead Boys’ “Sonic Reducer” and Wayne Cochran’s “Last Kiss” (an honorary PJ song ever since their 1999 recording became a surprise Top 10 hit).

Will Smith lives large and works even larger and RadarOnline.com has an inside look into the ultra-luxurious $2.5 million trailer that the movie star uses while on set.
The motor home is nicknamed “The Heat” and boats amenities that are extravagant even in A-list Hollywood homes.
The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, who has put his Calabasas compound on the market for $42 million, camped out in the trailer during filming of his hit movies Men in Black 3, Ali and The Pursuit of Happyness and /Film released the video tour HGTV conducted last year.
And the trailer isn’t just for one lone actor, it comes with a 30-person screening room that has $125,000 in technology, including a 100-inch TV, and surround sound.
There is a $100,000 custom-built kitchen with granite countertops and $30,000 leather ceilings.
Smith can luxuriate in the second-story living quarters in the master bedroom or in the $20,000 bathroom with a steam shower.
Even if you aren’t a movie star of Will’s caliber the trailer can be rented out for a mere $9,000 a week.
But, soft! That light breaking over yonder is from the 70-foot screen on which the latest adaptation of “Romeo and Juliet” plays.
Written by “Downton Abbey” creator Julian Fellowes and directed by Carlos Carlei, the latest version of Shakespeare’s tragic tale casts Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth as the titular star-crossed lovers, alongside an impressive cast of supporting players that includes Damian Lewis, Stellan Skarsgard and Paul Giamatti.
With all that star power, what do critics have to say about this latest reimagining? Keep reading to find out.

AUSTRALIA, you have a new train wreck, and it’s called The Bachelor.
The only thing right about The Bachelor is the actual bachelor, Tim Robards.
Good grief, the rest of the show is 27 kinds of wrong.
First of all, why do all the women work in events and fashion, why are they all from the Gold Coast and why do they all look like Joan Collins with Shrove Tuesday’s worth of pancake make-up on?
Secondly, exactly how many stylists vomited on the set? Because it looks to me like a gaggle of set-dressers had one hell of a barney with all of Sydney florists before throwing up on the ridiculous mansion where they all live.
