Not to be a bastard and find certain parallels between one tragedy and another, an eerie similarity came to my attention that I thought was worthy of the Gasm Pages.
After a 911 audio tape, from October 1993, was front page news for the tabloids, Nicole Brown Simpson was quoted as saying, “It’s a tabloid and not a true reflection of our relationship.”
After an Amazing Race video moment, from was front page news for bloggers, Victoria Fuller, on her website, was quoted as saying. “Don’t worry, I am fine. It’s a TV show and not a true reflection of our relationship.”
When I was in kindergarten, I was accused of cheating on a spelling test. Trust me, this is going somewhere. To this day, I remember the words. Yellow, Blue, Purple, Brown, Black and Green. The situation looked bad. We were taking the test and the words which I had studied were left out and open near my desk, so when she walked by, from her certain angle, it appeared as though I was cheating. I tried to explain it was an accident and I didn’t know it was open. I tried to explain I couldn’t even see the book from where I was. I tried to explain in anyway I could with my kindergarten mentality, that it was a misunderstanding. But in the end, she called my mom and dad, and i got in trouble! I was so stubborn “I DIDN’T CHEAT!” Guess what? Despite all my sincere sounding excuses for why the circumstances weren’t depicting the truth, the fact of the matter was, I totally cheated. I cheated, I got caught and I learned my lesson.
Jonathan and Victoria have been making excuses on their website since the second episode for what appears to be “abusive behavior” after the jump enjoy the week by week spin control by OJ and Nicole Br– sorry, Jonathan and Victoria directly from their website. How long until they learn their lesson?

We want all of you to know that yes we are human and yes we fight but in the end we do love each other. The stress from the Race brought out the unknown and this is what you are seeing. We are true fans of The Amazing Race and loved every second of running it. Jonathan was colorful and crazy on the show because he could be and just wanted to have fun with the experience.
We hope you can have fun with us as we laugh at ourselves on The Amazing Race 6.
Jonathan and Victoria

All of us have our faults. Unfortunately for me millions of viewers are getting to see mine each week. I do not abuse Victoria,
what you see is a heighten version of stress and obsession mix with medication for a sickness called Sarcoidosis. What was started as a Publicity Stunt turn in to an obsession to race and be first at any cost. This is a GAME and I set out to be the Villain to others not to Victoria. Victoria and I are working on our relationship to better our self and learn from our mistakes. I am taking full responsibly for my actions on screen. Please allow me to make the effort.
I am deeply saddened by the storyline that CBS went with. I am sorry for my actions, I am sorry to Victoria. Most all I am sorry to the Fans of the Amazing Race.

Don’t worry, I am fine. Its a TV show and not a true reflection of our relationship. We both over reacted.
My Prediction for a future post:
She fell down the stairs. – Jonathan
Yes, thats what happened, I fell down the stairs. -Victoria
