What's the Deal with Ted Williams

I dont get it. He is a homeless junkie. Think of all the other homeless junkies out there that could use the help. But he has a "golden voice" - so fucking what. People want to put him up there on a pedestal but look at all the lives he fucked for 23 years:

Also, did you see the interviews on the morning shows yesterday? That guy appears to be still using what with all the twitching.

I am all for helping people but Americans have a warped sense of charity. The Cleveland Caveliers are going to give this guy a job and a house?? You are betting on an unsure thing with this guy. Save the money and give it to the people that are in need and are really wanting to pull themselves out of poverty. The cost of a house alone could go a long way to helping way more people in Ohio. This guy has some ability, has a boatload of family, yet he is pandering on the side of the road not even a week ago?? He could not find a job? I call bullshit on this guy, and I hope I am wrong but something stinks with this.

He reminds me of Bubbles from The Wire. Nice homeless guy with a good heart, one you want to see do better. Not sure I'd hire the dude though, or give him a house.

I agree. The guy is a homeless junkie who hasn't seen his mom or talked to his 9 kids in years for a reason. I have no problem with the guy getting some voiceover gigs or a church helping him get an apartment. But this crazy shit is overblown. And the sad thing is, as soon as the TV cameras are gone, this guy is going to be back on the streets, a junkie again, and probably in worse shape for it.

His buddy, Chong, was a bad influence on him :( .

The media is swarming him like flys on shit, because most of them are as about as useful to the world as his, VOICE. Wow. Meredith Viera wants to eat your ass.

LOL!

What's pathetic is that most of these news people who are fawning all over him have probably worked with people just like him over the years but don't give a shit about those homeless junkies because they aren't on YouTube. The state of "journalism" in this country is a fucking joke these days.

He seems lie a nice guy from TV, but what do we know? I know dope fiends who look harmless as houseplants until they need to get high and then they'll rob you blind. HE hadn't spoken with his own mother in years, kind of may explain his past behavior.

He has one apparent talent, a smooth voice, something he probably refined but was basically born with. I've seen crackfiend bitches with great bodies, what is so different there?

I hope the man gets his shit together, but I'd tell all these "hands across America, lets help!" docuhers to proceed with caution.

The guy has been clean for over two years and lives a day's drive from NYC and never managed to make it back to see his mother? Who he supposedly loves so much?

I have nothing against this guy. It's a good story. But the fact is there is some fundamentally fucked up shit about this guy that will manifest itself sooner or later.

This kind of reminds me of the mentality some people get when they "discover" some talented person who is down on his luck. Compassion is a great human trait, but proceed with caution. Could wind up like the case of Jack Henry Abbott, a hacky ex-con writer who was reveled by Norman Mailer, Susan Sarandon and the NYC literary crowd. Depiste his very violent past and psycho behavior, his supporters loved his writing and criticism of "the system" so much, they pleaded for and got him paroled early. He stabbed a guy to death about a month later.


I am sure this Ted Stevens guy isn't a psycho killer or anything, but I wouldn't be incredibly surprised if he gets busted for DUI or forging someones checks or picking up tranny hookers or something really low rent, ghetto and/or weird. I just see doom for some sad reason.

I imagine he'll get that announcing gig with the Cavs and after a month or so he'll start showing up late and then not showing up at all. Even before he lost his job in '97, he was doing stints in jail/prison. The guy is broken. Sooner or later, it will be evident to everyone who tries to help him.

He has one skill, a charming and engaging voice. "We know him, we love him and he deserves a second chance, yada yada..." Hey, fuck this itchy fucker already, he's starting to bother me.

That's a great story. That woman deserves a medal for taking care of this kids after their deadbeat dad left.

I have a feeling the warm and fuzzy feelings for this guy are dissipating as fast as they arrived.

Now he has a job with CBS. Evidently NBC was going to hire him and sent him on all these interviews, then CBS hired him instead. Looks like they are doing a lot to make his background life look good.

Seems like he has a good family, so I say more power to him if he gets pulled back from the abyss and makes something of himself. Good for him.

Maybe they can fight about money on the air, too...

http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00037850.html


After everyone kissed his ass for a week, now he has to deal, on national television, with the nine kids he abandoned and who hate him and who want a piece of the money. If he's not back on drugs yet, he soon will be.
