Quick hits



Frankie Abernathy, the punk chick from The Real World: San Diego who left halfway through the season because she was a cutter, died over the weekend at 25, MTV News reports. Although Frankie suffered from cystic fibrosis, no cause of death has yet been determined.

• Remember Sean Stewart, son of Rod Stewart, allegedly beating a man and his wife with a brick a couple months ago? Well, TMZ reports he was arrested and charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, then released on $60,000 bail. We hope he gets more time than Paris.

• Rapper The Game rejected an offer by a Manhattan prosecutor to be sentenced to time served in exchange for a guilty plea over a charge of impersonating a police officer last year, the AP reports. Looks like the hip-hopper’s taking his name a little too seriously.

• The Juice* wants to say its own little good-bye to Don Herbert, a.k.a. Mr. Wizard, who died this week at age 89 from bone cancer in suburban Los Angeles. We haven’t looked at copper wire or baby powder the same since.
