‘Wire’ actress pleads not guilty in drug case
A woman who played a Baltimore drug-gang assassin in HBO’s “The Wire” has pleaded not guilty to conspiring to sell heroin, according to the Associated Press.
Felicia “Snoop” Pearson entered the plea Tuesday morning during an arraignment in Baltimore Circuit Court. An Aug. 9 jury trial date was set.
Miss Pearson is one of 64 people charged in March in Operation Usual Suspects, a joint state-federal prosecution of an alleged East Baltimore drug gang. She is charged in an indictment with conspiring with two men to distribute heroin.
The 30-year-old Miss Pearson was released weeks later on $50,000 bond with electronic monitoring that has allowed her to leave the state to pursue her acting career.
Former Woods mistress gets reality TV series
Rachel Uchitel, whose fiance died in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, will star in a reality television series about her new career as a private investigator, according to the New York Post.
The former VIP nightclub hostess has teamed up with Atlas Media Group, which produced “Who Killed Chandra Levy?” to film a docudrama about her life experiences. The 36-year-old told the Post’s Page Six that several production companies and reality programs have pursued her since her appearance on “Celebrity Rehab.”
“I wasn’t interested until Atlas came along and agreed with me the only way to do something was if it was a ‘true’ reality show,” Miss Uchitel told Page Six. “I’m doing PI work now, and it’s stuff that would make for great TV.”
Though Miss Uchitel reportedly has had affairs with golfer Tiger Woods and “Angel” actor David Boreanaz, she said her show will not attempt to out cheating spouses.
