Back To You meets Bad Influence

This can't be real life. In Philadelphia, we have a tale of two news anchors. You know, those folks that laugh and smile on newscasts, yet probably hate each other off camera? Never truer words were said, as the antics of these two simply defy imagination.

Some examples?
  • One, Larry Mendte, was recently fired, then hacked into his co-anchor Alycia Lane's e-mail account over 500 times.
  • Lane had an off-air scuffle with an NYPD officer.
  • Mendte shared some of Lane's personal emails with a print reporter.
  • Lane sends cheesecake photos of herself to NFL Network's Rich Eisen, only to have them opened by Eisen's wife.
You can't make this stuff up, folks. My favorite line of the whole story, though, was this: "Authorities found a picture of Lane in a bikini on Mendte's computer, though there are no charges connected to the image." No charges connected to the image. Oh, whew, guess they are both off the hook, right? ;-)

And you thought local TV news was boring!
