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.

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).

Review in a Hurry: After months of Sacha Baron Cohen showing up as the character he plays in The Dictator—even ash-bombing Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet—the actual movie is here. The comedian’s mix of politics and gross-out humor is funny, but the story is predictable and lacks bite. Did
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.
