These bad boys need some serious schooling in good guy behavior.
Sunday night marked the second-season premiere of VH1's Tool Academy, where the world's most patient girlfriends send lousy lovers to straighten out their acts. Since the trend these days is to make a "celebrity" version of nearly every reality show, we'd like to suggest some famous fellas who should be admitted to the inevitable Celebrity Tool Academy.
Chris Brown - Obviously. Not only did Chris prove that he skipped Being A Real Man 101 by beating up his girlfriend, Rihanna, but after her recent tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer, he released a statement to MTV News that he felt that "all of the details [about the incident] should remain a private matter" between them. Spoken like a true abuser. He must know that far too many victims of domestic violence remain silent out of shame or embarrassment, which only allows the abuse to continue.
Jude Law - First, Jude had an affair with his nanny while engaged to Sienna Miller, and now he's refusing to meet the child he fathered following a one-night stand with model Samantha Burke. While some have speculated that Samantha may have gotten pregnant on purpose, that doesn't exactly let Jude off the hook. Whatever her intentions were, you'd have to think a dashing Romeo like Jude would know a little something about contraception! Whether he wanted another child or not, he needs to man up and take responsibility. We do have hope for him since, according to ex-wife Sadie Frost, he has always been very devoted to thier three kids. And we really want him to be a good guy, because such a beautiful face is a terrible thing to waste.
Balthazar Getty - One way Jude Law betters Balthazar is that when Jude's marriage was no longer working, he ended it. Balthazar seems to have a problem with closure, preferring to leave his wife hanging while he runs around acting like a bachelor. He and his wife, Rosetta, seperated last year after his affair with Jude's ex, Sienna Miller, but never divorced. Though it was reported back in July that the still-married couple seemed to be reconciling, photos of the actor hanging out with Sienna surfaced online just last week. Balthazar has also been rumored to be romancing Lindsay Lohan, although LiLo has denied it.
Eddie Cibrian - Perhaps trying to prove the old adage, "Once a cheater, always a cheater," Eddie is apparently up to his old tricks again. After his affair with LeAnn Rymes destroyed both of their marriages, Eddie is now allegedly stepping out on LeAnn with ex-lover Scheana Marie Jancan.
Jon Gosselin - Not that we ever thought Kate Gosselin was the model wife, but Jon's constant whining and victim mentality has never exactly been endearing. Add to that his sneaky money-stealing from Kate and the "mamtrums" and emotional abuse directed at girlfriend Hailey Glassman, and you've got yourself a real winner. And we won't even get into the all-Ed Hardy wardrobe.
Spencer Pratt - Sure, Spencer may be a perfect match for his wife Heidi, and he may not treat her badly (that we know of), but he's Spencer Pratt! Seriously, look up "tool" in the urban dictionary and you'll find a picture of his creepy flesh-colored beard. (The phrase "creepy flesh-colored beard is probably trademarked by Joel McHale, who is so NOT a tool).
