Bill Simmons: Stealing From "The Surreal Life"?

Sad day when Bill Simmons steals material from "The Surreal Life":

On the bright side, now that every female in Vegas dresses like a hooker, it's impossible to tell the real hookers from the fake ones, which means we'll probably have a Vegas-themed game show called "Hooker or Looker" some day.

Good one, Bill.

Only problem is, that this week's episode of "The Surreal Life: Fame Games", which aired before you wrote your "column", had EXACTLY that.

Hookers and "lookers" were brought in and the teams of "celebrities" had to try to figure out which were the real call girls. And the show was in Vegas. And Robin Leach (the host) even referred to the game as "separating the hookers from the lookers".

Guess when you write a 15,000 word column, you take whatever ideas you can.

Ever see Scoop Jackson steal from "The Surreal Life"? Didn't think so. (The "orange roundie" thing was just a coincidence. Really.)

Simmons reusing material from a VH1 show that nobody in her core audience would have seen? Nah, you're kidding me! I had painted him a far more ethical journalist than that!

"Simmons reusing material from a VH1 show that nobody in her core audience would have seen"

Sir, we beg to differ.

Viewers of VH1's celeb reality shows ARE Mr. Sportsguy's core audience.

We have also heard a rumor that he will be part of the cast on next season's surreal life.

"get off your high horse, simmons didnt take anything from you"

Sir, we never said Simmons took anything from us. Thank you for your public display of failed reading comprehension.

LOL you guys are just haters... if he had saw that episode on VH1, he would have just said that it was just like what he saw, instead of saying that it'll happen some day. he doesnt need to phrase it that way if he had saw it. so i guess what i'm trying to say is... shut your mouths when you know not of what you speak.

Swing and a Miss!

That just wasn't funny, I expect better.

Sir, as you are well aware by now...the feeling is MORE than mutual.

" he doesnt need to phrase it that way if he had saw it."

Sir...and that makes it even more puzzling.

"shut your mouths when you know not of what you speak"

Sir, we take it that is why you are typing?

why are there so many Simmons apologists posting here?? The guy is like 5 years past his prime(or to use his terminology, he "jumped the shark), get over him.

"why are there so many Simmons apologists posting here??"

Sir, it's called "manlove".

Some men lead such boring lives that they find the idea of "partying" during All Star weekend or the Super Bowl with the ultracharismatic Simmons, or reading about his wife's latest doings to be such an enticing endeavor that they feel they must protect Simmons from any (legitimate) criticism.

Ever see Bill on TV?

What could be MORE fun than partying with THAT guy? The only thing we can think of is: reading about it.

Simmons has been stealing ideas from TV and the Internets for years.

Sir, if he were a Negro he'd have been locked up by now for thievery.
