This guy went from multi-platinum rap superstar to being a ratings juggernaunt reality show train wreck. My have the mighty have fallen. Check him out on his second Harpo produced (Oprah’s television production company) talk show appearance after the debacle that was Iyanla’s Fix My Life first try at helping DMX. I guess he will be on Dr. Oz next.

According to the Associated Press, the basketball commentator reported to Phoenix’s Tent City Saturday morning, and he’s already decked out in official jail gear.
TMZ reports that he’s wearing a black and white striped jumpsuit, with the jail’s famous pink boxer shorts.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio says that Barkley has been placed in a private tent for his own safety, but has already been conversing with other inmates.
The former Phoenix Suns star was arrested on December 31st, after he ran a stop sign at around 1:30 a.m. Once pulled over, the officer smelled alcohol, and conducted a field sobriety test, which Sir Charles reportedly failed. However, he refused a breathalyzer, but was later given a blood test, said reports.
He’s also been allowed to speak in a press conference with cameras later today a well.
I guess TMZ are the only guys breaking news these days?
Hope they’ve got XXXXL jumpsuits in AZ, ’cause Charles Barkley is officially going to jail.
Barkley just pleaded guilty to 2 counts of driving under the influence and pleaded “responsible” to running a stop sign for the December 31st incident in Scottsdale.
Barkley was sentenced to 10 days in jail — but will only do five if he completes an alcohol education program. Barkley was also fined $2,000.
Barkley will begin his sentence on March 21 — but it’s unclear if he will serve time in Arizona’s famed Tent City Jail, where they make the inmates wear pink.
As for the gun cops say they found in Barkley’s car on the night of the arrest — no charges were ever filed.
