John Travolta Extortion Stuff

In case you're considering extorting someone famous, you should probably nix that plan because it pretty much never works. And I say "pretty much" because I have complete faith that threatening to reveal to the world that Megan Fox is actually a man unless he dates me is a surefire plan I have in the works. But anyway, it seems one of John Travolta's extortionists felt guilty about it according to TMZ:

One of the people accused of attempting to extort John Travolta apparently felt guilty while she was trying to execute the plan.

Audio and video tapes from the police sting operation which targeted Pleasant Bridgewater and Tarino Lightbourne are being played in open court today.

In the tapes, Travolta's attorney can be heard telling the suspects that John couldn't pay the $25 million asking price because "John doesn't have that kind of bread ... not even lying around."

On another tape, Bridgewater can be heard telling John's lawyer, "I just want to get this over with ... I don't want to hear about it again ... I feel so badly about the whole thing."

About half way through writing this post, I realized this story just isn't worth posting, but there was no way I was going to delete everything I had already written. That's the mentality of a world class journalist, someone get me an award.
