We hesitated to comment on the newest sex tape scandal, because there’s not much that can tactfully be said. The actor who gained fame playing “Mini-Me” had an illicit video of his exploits with girlfriend Ranae Shrider, which mysteriously found its way to TMZ. Most people figured Vern himself was behind it, but Ranae (now his ex-girlfriend) is now admitting she was the one responsible. Supposedly she’s searching for the highest bidder, with the asking price set at around $25k. In this age of YouTube and zero privacy, isn’t it easy to find such material online for free? We’re certainly not interested in watching it, but those who desire that kind of show can surely locate it without paying top dollar. If you’re still not convinced that Ranae Shrider had nefarious intentions, let’s consider two additional facts:
1. She knows – and may be friends with – Paris Hilton.
2. The night she met Vern at the Playboy Mansion, she wasn’t actually trying to meet him. She had her heart set on meeting up with former 90210 star Ian Ziering.
Wow, this girl is really aiming high – no pun regarding Vern’s stature intended.
OK magazine did an interview with Vern recently that just we had to mention. It wasn’t anything he said, but rather the introductory statement provided:
“The 39-year-old actor gets around by scooter, and parks right beside me. Despite his mini-me stature, he’s wearing a men’s watch, and has a heart tattoo on his right thumb.”
What, like guys with dwarfism can’t wear grown up accessories? Should he have been wearing a Disney watch instead? Poor form OK…
