Ah yes, if only more shit were to come around full circle like this...Amanda Clayton, the Detroit woman who made national news after it was discovered she was continuing to collect food stamps after winning $1 million in the Michigan State Lottery, was found dead yesterday morning of a suspected drug overdose in Ecorse, Michigan.
After word broke out about the food stamps, Clayton was ordered to repay $5,500 for food stamps and medical assistance she had received, and given nine months probation on a felony welfare fraud charge. No further details were released by police.
Alas, probably not. The show, which has somehow managed to draw an average of 2.4 million viewers an episode, peaking at 2.8 million viewers for what is now being called the "mid-season finale."
I can honestly say I added one thing to the list of Shit I wanna see when I get old, and that's the E! True Hollywood Story with whatever carnival-like crime scene this kid is found in. I maintain I am not much of a gambler, but my smart $20 is on auto-erotic asphyxiation misfire with a buffalo wing...
