Hey, remember Fabian Basabe? If you do, at all, it's probably because of his lawsuit against a Bungalow 8 doorman or his drunk driving arrests or calling club employees "negroes" or that he married a woman or his appearance on a show called Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive which, can you believe that actually happened? Anyway, he now reveals on his blog that he never intended to get a lot of bad press. No, he went out of his way to try to prevent himself from being slammed repeatedly by the evil news media!

In a letter to the judge who will sentence him for his kidnapping and sexual assault conviction, former WWD media reporter and unsexyfakefireman Peter Braunstein asks for sympathy: "During the trial, the New York Post columnist Andrea Peyser declared that I was not sick; I was evil. This kind of tabloid rhetoric is essentially a mandate for harsh sentencing." Braunstein also suggested that Peyser's branding Paris Hilton an "ignorant slut" was "a little harsh." [NYP]
