Tila Tequila learns why Shawne Merriman’s nickname is “LIGHTS OUT”…

September 7, 2009

too soon?

Body of a goddess, face from hell...

Body of a goddess, face from hell...thanks dogg pound, that about describes her...

You put the lights out move on her, but that is okay, because you were doing it to prevent her from driving?

Dont look up... and you are all good....

Don't look up... and you are all good....

I am looking at ESPN and your statement and if she wanted to drive drunk, CALL THE POLICE ON HER! That is how you stop drunk driving. There is not a reason to put your hands on her. You are a professional football player who is (for better or worse) revered around the state, and country. They pay you to play a game. Always keep that in mind…

(CNN) — Reality TV star Tila Tequila first came to fame via social networking, thanks to her popularity on MySpace.

That’s the shit that got me mad! This chick is famous because she had a MySpace account? Insane….this is what she is known for, or popular. That, and she has some fake boobies. Yes, they are nice, but so are a lot of women we see on the streets. they are not famous and neither should you. While I won’t speak for others, I definitely do not watch your show and your fake breasts make it a tougher decision, but still an easy one.

Later, she became known as one of the most voracious celebrity tweeters, boasting more than 243,000 followers on Twitter.

But it was a more archaic form of technology — a phone call to police — that briefly quieted her social media activities and thrust the petite personality into the national spotlight after an allegedly violent encounter with an NFL player.

Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, said she was assaulted by Shawne Merriman, a linebacker with the San Diego Chargers. He has denied the charges.

According to a statement from the sheriff’s department of San Diego County, California, authorities responded to a disturbance call early Sunday from a woman who said she had been choked and restrained by a male.

When police arrived, “the reporting party identified herself as Tila Nguyen, aka Tila Tequila, and her alleged assailant as Shawne Merriman,” the statement said.

Nguyen, who starred in MTV’s “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila” and its follow-up, “A Shot at Love 2 With Tila Tequila,” signed a citizen’s arrest at the scene and was transported to a local hospital, authorities said.

Merriman was taken into custody on suspicion of battery and false imprisonment, the sheriff’s department statement said.

Merriman’s attorney, Todd Macaluso, told reporters that Nguyen was “extremely intoxicated and inebriated” at the time of the incident and that the player tried to make arrangements for her to leave the house.

After hours of Twitter silence, Nguyen tweeted Sunday evening that she was safe at home in Los Angeles and thanked fans for their concern and support.

She also appeared to deny Merriman and his attorney’s claim by tweeting, “I am allergic to alcohol. It has been publicly known for years. That is how I got the name Tila ‘Tequila’ cuz the irony. I can’t drink.”

For a few hours on Monday the privacy setting on her Twitter page, @officialTila, was turned on to protect her tweets from being viewed by outsiders.

Ian Corbin, founder of CelebrityTweet, said Nguyen is one of the top celebrity tweeters, often posting more than 100 tweets a day.

Her abundance of followers has earned her a ranking of “hot,” said Corbin, whose site gathers the tweets of about 250 celebrities. Nguyen went quiet before, he said, when there were rumors that she was pregnant by a hip-hop artist.

Corbin said he is not surprised that her tweeting has decreased in light of the incident.

“She probably has a legal team telling her not to say much,” he said.

Ardent Tequila fans on Twitter are known as members of the “TilaArmy,” and many rallied online after learning of the incident.

“@officialTila you know your #TilaArmy is here 4 your support no matter what!!!!,” tweeted user BeToRC.

Sasha Pasulka, head writer of the entertainment Web site Evil Beet, said Nguyen may have fallen into the trap that many face in their pursuit of celebrity: not being able to shield their personal lives.

“The fame doesn’t stop just because something bad happens to you and you want some space,” Pasulka said. “It’s the same thing you saw with Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan.”

The high-profile nature of the domestic violence case involving singers Chris Brown and Rihanna has heightened public interest in such incidents, Pasulka added.

In one of her postings, Nguyen offered a few hopeful words early Monday morning via Twitter: “The truth will set you free. … God is with me.”

Bro, why would you put your money on the line for Ms. Nyguen? (That is her real name. Maybe if people stopped talking about this tramp like she was a star, then she wouldn’t act like a prima donna.) You are a free agent at the end of the year. You are interviewing for 31 other teams who might want to sign you at the end of the year. If you are a problem child, teams will shy away from signing you. This is like cancer. You use radiation and scalpels to get rid of cancer, you do not try to add cancer in your life.
