Paul himself will [...] Controversial YouTube star vlogger Jake Paul is developing a talk show in partnership with YouTube Red, according to media reports. The highly charged douche-bro Internet star reportedly wants the show to have a late-night variety show feel, with the pilot set to be shot and released as early as May, according to reports. Paul himself will host and executive produce. VOTE: Does Logan Paul Deserve A Second Chance? A YouTube spokeswoman spoke publicly at the end of the week about the project, confirming its existence and adding some important details about just how far along the talk show is (below): "Last year, we engaged in early development deals with a handful of YouTube creators as part of our normal process to evaluate new creative ideas. There is no series order currently in place." Sounds... tepid? (You can look that word up if you need to, Jake.) Paul and his crew have had a bad go of it recently getting kicked off his cash-cow Disney show Bizaardvark, just as his brother Logan Paul was seriously reprimanded by YouTube after filming a dead body in a suicide forest in Japan and posting it online. Related: Logan Already Announced He Was Taking A Break From Vlogging They have a huge following of teenage girls that'll probably follow Jake to the talk show, but beyond that... this thing is almost certainly going to flop. If YouTube ever even picks it up after the pilot!!! [Image via YouTube.].....»»

Last summer we told you the sad tale of Monalisa Perez, who accidentally shot her boyfriend, Pedro Ruiz, dead in a stunt gone wrong. Ruiz held a book in front of his chest, and had then-pregnant Perez fire a .50 caliber handgun at him while cameras rolled -- and their 3-year-old daughter reportedly watched. The powerful shot penetrated the book and hit Ruiz in the chest, killing him on the spot. Perez later plead guilty to 2nd degree manslaughter and was sentenced Wednesday to six months prison time -- which she was allowed to serve in increments over the next three years to allow her to spend time with her newborn baby. A tragic enough story of the search for fame turning deadly -- but made so much worse by children who will grow up without their father. Thankfully, most of these controversial YouTube stars don't have kids... CLICK HERE to view "Controversial YouTube Stars!" CLICK HERE to view "Controversial YouTube Stars!"
