Bai Ling’s Love Life Made Her Steal Tabloids and Batteries

As crazy as I thought it was when I read that Bai Ling had been pinched for shoplifting at LAX, when I saw this morning that her explanation for committing the crime was that she was in the midst of a break-up, I have to say that my heart softened a little. The wacky actress told E! News that she had been having an “emotionally crazy” day due to having to deal with the “huge problem of breaking up [before] Valentine’s Day.” Bai’s explanation of the couple’s problem was simple, “Wrong boyfriend.”

Apparently, she was on her way to work on a movie in Albuquerque, entitled “Love Ranch,” starring Joe Pesci and Helen Mirren. Now, I know otherwise sane women, who have lost their shit during a break-up, turning into lovelorn maniacs capable of slashing the tires of a woman they suspect is the new love in their former flame’s life. And Bai Ling already strikes me as pretty crazy. We’re probably lucky she didn’t hijack a plane. Her shoplifting may have saved some lives.

    I really like to visit the nice folks of Albuquerque, on occasion, especially the restaurants and the Aquarium.
    Y’all batten down the hatches and secure your belongings! Bai Ling might be on the way!
