Rob Ford’s Show Cancelled – Rob Ford, thanks to his diry mouth and liking for cocaine and alcohol, has been stripped of many of his mayoral responsibilities and now has had his TV show taken away from him as well.

Seems to me he was made for reality tv. He fits the criteria. He’s a hot mess!

As a result he was sentenced to one year of supervised probation. He admitted purchasing the 3.5 grams and said “I’ve hit a bottom where I realize I need help. And I have aggressively pursued that help.” He plans on paying the $250 fine and entering a drug rehab program. He told the judge that he hopes to emerge from this situation “stronger” and still wants to serve the country. Radel bought the drugs from an undercover police officer last month and after being caught invited the agents back to his apartment where he turned over more drugs.
