Vince from ShamWow Gets in Fight with a Hooker!

Breaking News: (I love writing that!) Vince Shlomi, better known as Vince Offer, even better known as Vince from ShamWow was arrested in Miami last month after getting into an altercation with a hooker named Sasha Harris. Apparently Vince picked up a prostitute in a nightclub and agreed to pay her $1000 for sex. Once they got to the hotel room, the whore bit Vince’s tongue and wouldn’t let go, so he started punching her to get his tongue back. (After all he couldn’t let her do that all day.) Ouch!! Bet Vince needed a lot of ShamWows to clean up that blood!

Read all the juicy details at The Smoking Gun and don’t miss Vince’s mugshot and the mugshot of Vince’s hooker (she kind of looks Germanic to me). Charges were eventually dropped for both. I bet the two addresses listed in the police report—Luigi’s nightclub at 2377 Collins Ave and Room #512 in the Setai Hotel at 2001 Collins Ave—will become must see tourist attractions for any Vince Offer fans visiting the Miami Beach area.

Vince may be best known for the ShamWow commercial, but the name of his Slap Chop product perfectly describes what she did to him and what he did to her (just in the wrong order)!

This really is a sad story: Vince is world famous, yet he still has to pay whores for sex! I’m not an expert on the prostitution biz, but isn’t $1000 a little pricey for some whore you pick up in a nightclub? I guess it’s actually hard for Vince to find a lady who’s gonna love his nuts.

Big thanks to Ridiculous Infomercial Review reader Mel for tipping me off to this story! (It will probably be the infomercial news story of the year!)

Now we can appreciate Vince’s commercial masterpieces on a whole new level:

  • Vince looks like a Geico Caveman in his mugshot.

  • Vince, Vince, Vince… after the lineup was your one allotted call to Billy Mayes? I saw both of these guys on a funny t-shirt last week called Don’t Stare at the Eyes or something like that. Crazy but kinda cool shirt at same time. If you wanna check it out, it’s about halfway down the blog – http://randrtees.blogspot.com/

  • Hmmm…… maybe he ate some of that “exciting” tuna and it worked a little too well…

  • Nope, a thousand dollars is about right for a bar trollop.

  • Though I have never used their services, I believe a thou is about the going rate these days for “full service” from a sex worker.

  • More Vince drama- he’s suing the Church of Scientology for conspirating to steal his slap chop idea from him.

    Keeps getting sadder folks.

  • Craig Ferguson did a couple Vince Offer jokes tonight, and guest William Shatner quoted his classic “are you following me camera guy”.

  • Probably Vince did not know about the Erotic Services section of Craigslist. Else he could have saved a lot of money!

    For anyone interested: The Casual Encounters and theErotic Services sections of Craigslist are on par with Jerry Springer show for their entertainment value.

  • Once she got a hold of his tongue, Vince Offer couldn’t Get Offer without punching her.

  • He should have heeded my warning.

  • Too bad the whore didn’t shove that syupid looking microphone up his ass while she was at it …

  • I wonder if he use a ShamWow to get the blood off his face.

  • Might this have been the result of a plot against Vince? Think. Why would the other two well-known “commercial” guys want competition from a third person? Why would someone bite someone’s tongue? It is obvious someone wanted Vince out of the way. One’s tongue gives us the ability to talk and in Vince’s case, his tongue was his livelihood. This is no laughing matter. I feel very sorry about what happened to him and wish him well.

  • I find it creepily funny that Susan’s comment was posted the day before Billy Mays died.
