MARCH 27--Meet Vince Shlomi. He's probably better known to you as the ShamWow Guy, the ubiquitous television pitchman who has been phenomenally successful peddling absorbent towels and food choppers. Shlomi, 44, was arrested last month on a felony battery charge following a violent confrontation with a prostitute in his South Beach hotel room. According to an arrest affidavit, Shlomi met Sasha Harris, 26, at a Miami Beach nightclub on February 7 and subsequently traveled with her to his $750 room at the lavish Setai Hotel. Shlomi told cops he paid Harris about $1000 in cash after she "propositioned him for straight sex." Shlomi said that when he kissed Harris, she suddenly "bit his tongue and would not let go." Shlomi then punched Harris several times until she released his tongue. The affidavit, a copy of which you'll find here, notes that during the 4 AM fight Harris sustained facial fractures and lacerations all over her face (she is pictured here in mug shots snapped following busts in 2008 and 2005). After freeing his tongue, a bleeding Shlomi ran to the Setai lobby, where security summoned cops. Harris refused to cooperate with officers, who recovered $930 from her purse. "Both parties had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from their persons," police reported. In a brief telephone interview, Harris declined to answer TSG questions about her run-in with Shlomi, though she did say she is considering a lawsuit against the pitchman. Asked if she worked as a hooker, Harris declined comment. As seen in the below mug shot, Shlomi was also injured during the fracas and, court records show, was treated at Mount Sinai Medical Center. While Shlomi and Harris were both arrested for felony aggravated battery, prosecutors this month declined to file formal charges against the combatants. Police records list Shlomi's occupation as "Marketing," but make no mention of his affiliation with the ShamWow or the Slap Chop, both of which sell for $19.95 (plus shipping and handling).

He should just hire German hookers, they're higher quality.

The prostitute propositioned him for sex, to which Mr. Shlomi replied " You're gonna love my nuts."

He could use one of his ShamWow's to clean up his face!

maybe she was actually hired by the church of scientology to try and get him into a situation that would hurt his image.




beating up prostitutes at 4 a.m. in a hotel room certainly doesn't help one's image.

Who kisses a hooker anyway? Never had one but isn't that a hooker faux pas? A different schlong every night and meth mouth to boot. Julia Roberts doesn't kiss on the mouth :).

I said it once and I will say it again. I really hope that he is proud of himself because he now has herpes. I guarantee it.

It's the same girl - just mugshots from different arrests.

I think the picture on the right is skewed - it's too long and narrow. The picture on the right isn't, and also in that one she's smiling.

However, it should be noted that the skank came with free herpes.

This seems appropriate for this thread. This is a dubbed version of the Shamwow commercial and it is hilarious. If you have not seen them, check out their dubbed versions of the Billy Mays commercials.

Why would she spoil what was otherwise a solid transaction? Not only did she lose this sale, but she probably lost all future shamwow repeat business.

Bad, bad businesswoman.

He might not have known it was going to be $1,000. She might have told him it was only $200. He really should have read the small print on her tramp stamp that said there was an additional $800 for the "handling."
