Richard Hatch Wants To Do A Reality Show About His Kids From Sperm Donations

Filed under: Baby BlabberReality TV

Wait, what?

Survivor winner and Celebrity Apprentice cast member Richard Hatch just got out of prison this week. Sooo, naturally, what's the next step?

Pitch a reality show! About your kids who were conceived from your very generous sperm donations! Great idea!

Hatch, who served time for tax evasion, wants his reality show to center around the relationship he has with these children. Just before heading off to prison in March, Hatch met with his 22-year-old biological son, who found him through the Sibling Donor Registry.

Another 22-year-old woman from Maine also visited him in prison.

He says:

"It was additionally challenging to be wrongfully imprisoned knowing that these children were coming forward. I told the court that beforehand. I explained this is a fascinating time in my life when I was at a place where I wanted to get to know these people who are my children who have come forward and want to get to know me.

The offspring want connections with their biological donors because of all kinds of varying reasons from health to emotional to whatever they are."

What an odd idea for a reality show. But we've seen worse. Virgin Diaries.

If you do happen to actually get this show made, Rich, we suggest you hire a new accountant.

Richard Hatch Is Now Officially Inmate #05559-070

Richard Hatch Now In Prison

Richard Hatch, the Survivor champion, has to survive a whole less hospitable location than a jungle with a camera crew — he Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.

A few days ago, Richard was locked up and the key was thrown away to start his 9 month "life vacation," as we call it, for not paying the taxes on his $1 million prize from Survivor.

Apparently he couldn't raise enough money to pay off the debt between his time on Celebrity Apprentice and his jail date, because now he's in the clink from April 29 to December 12, 2011, unless something weird happens. Like a Shawshank kind of escape.

Should have figured out a way to pay it years ago! Whomp whomp!

Donald Trump Wants To Help Richard Hatch Get Out Of Jail!

Filed under: Legal MattersDonald TrumpZ ListReality TV

donald trump might help out richard hatch

Maybe Jeff Probst will come to Richard's aid as well! What do you think, Jeff?

…….Jeff????

Okay, so maybe only Donald Trump has got Richard Hatch's back, but that's a pret-ty powerful ally to have on your side!

Former Survivor winner/Celebrity Apprentice contestant Richard Hatch has turned himself in for a nine-month jail sentence today, which he'll serve as a result of unfiled/unpaid taxes…unless Donald can work his Trump magic, that is.

Here's what The Donald had to say about his desire to help out Hatch:

"It sounds like a very tough predicament. I may ask him if there's anything I can do… I may get involved and ask him what the hell is going on."

"He wasn't loved on set because it's a competition but I will say he was respected. [Helping Hatch is] something I'd think about. He's been a great character on the show."

"If he makes it to the finals – and I'm not saying he is – I'm sure we can get him time off for good behavior."

Wow! After all this time, looks like Richard Hatch MIGHT get out of jail early AND might get his debt paid off.

Way to give positive reinforcement for negative behavior, Donald!

Do U think Richard Hatch deserves The Donald's help? Or not so much?

Denied! Judge Tells Richard Hatch To Go Directly To Jail

Filed under: Legal MattersZ ListReality TV

Don't pass GO!

You must go directly to jail, Richard Hatch!

Earlier we reported that the Survivor winner was trying to get an appeal case to stall his jail sentence, but the judge wasn't having it.

A Rhode Island judge has denied his request to delay his surrender to authorities to begin his 9-month prison sentence for failing to pay taxes (yup, again) on his $1 million Survivor winnings.

Richard had asked the judge to give him time to get his affairs in order, but the judge has told him no. He must turn himself in to U.S. Marshals by noon TODAY.

Yikes!

Time's ticking, Richard!

Survivor Winner Richard Hatch Asks For An Appeal

Filed under: Legal MattersZ ListReality TV

richard-hatch-asks-for-an-appeal.jpg

It doesn't hurt to ask, right?

Winner of the first Survivor and current contestant on Celebrity Apprentice, Richard Hatch, has asked a federal appellate court to hear his appeal after a judge sentenced him to nine more months in jail.

After failing (again) to pay taxes on the $1 million in winnings he received from Survivor, Hatch was sentenced to nine months in jail last week. He's already served three years in jail for the same crime.

But now Hatch is asking the court to hear his case and also says that along with helping his sister with her business, he has several unidentified projects in the works and he needs time to put his affairs in order before he surrenders to prison.

He's also asked the judge to wait to surrender until they determine a verdict on his appeal.

Seems like he's just stalling time before he has to report to jail. We get that you don't want to go back to the big house, Richard, but you might as well get it over with now so that you can get out sooner and you know, like pay your taxes or something.

First Survivor Winner Going Back To Jail AGAIN!

Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!Sad SadReality TV

original survivor to return to jail

What's this guy's thought process? We just don't understand!

Back in January, original Survivor winner Richard Hatch was back in court for violating terms of his probation and STILL failing to re-file/pay his 2000 and 2001 tax returns, which included taxes on his $1 million prize.

Hatch has already spent over three years in jail, and now he'll be returning to jail for nine months because his taxes remain unpaid.

The Survivor loser winner's sentence is scheduled to start on Monday. Hatch says he'll appeal, but we can't imagine what grounds he'd appeal on.

Why don't you just figure out a way to pay those taxes, Richard!?!?!? Aren't you tired of jail already?

SO ridiculous!
