Those pesky startup wunderkind and tech-related individuals! When they aren't sending around dong shots or breaking out of rehab, they have to go and ruin our image of them by starring in movies or voting in the Senate. Call it schadenfreude or a rip-roaring good time, but there is nothing we love more then when famous folk do bad all by themselves.
To celebrate the brand-new season of Breaking Bad premiering this Sunday on AMC, we've collected some tantalizing blind items about some big names who've done screwed up. Send your best guesses as to who the following culprits are to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Celebs Who've Broken Bad" as the subject line and you'll be entered for a chance to win Seasons 1-3 of Breaking Bad on DVD!
1. Which blighted website isn't in anyone's top eight anymore? After being bought in '05 for $580 million, the social nightmare is now up for sale, and the most recent $20 million bid is way "down under" the asking price.
2. Talk about a jailbird! Which tech company founder recently went into total overshare mode when he live tweeted his own arrest?
3. In a small step for ladies everywhere, this out-of-this world octogenarian recently announced he was splitting from his wife. Rumor has it he was tired of her stepping on his toes. Look out for a messy divorce proceeding in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1!
