I’m a big fan of Sightings. It’s unfortunate that we don’t have another show like that out right now. In addition to my ongoing “Daily dose of awesome”, which admittedly hasn’t been daily, but it makes for a nice alliteration, I’m going to try and carve a niche as quasi-paranormal investigator. I’ve been intrigued by this sort of thing since I was a kid so it should be fun. Not all the stories will be recent, but they will be beyond the norm and they won’t be the sort of outrageous things you see in Weekly World News or other tabloids.
A story has been circulating that Paris Hilton hired a warlock to put a curse on soccer player Cristiano Rinaldo. Normally, this would be the sort of headline that belongs on an issue of the weekly world news. This story, however seems to have gained some legitimacy.
I came across the story during a recent episode of Sportsnation. Co-host Colin Cowherd was skeptical, but others aren’t so sure. After all, the soccer player did suffer an injury shortly after. The sorcerer’s name was even revealed to be Pepe.
This is an odd story. I don’t care about celebrities’ spiritual beliefs for the most part, but Paris never came off as a fan of black magic. On the other hand, there have been hints that she finds this sort of thing fascinating. She has, after all, starred in a few horror movies and even guest starred on a recent episode of Supernatural. If nothing else it’s a fascinating story.
I’m still unclear on if it was in fact Paris. Sportsnation said it with certainty that Paris hired the warlock, but The Spoiler said that she was only a prime suspect given the warlock’s description of who hired him to put the kaibosh on Rinaldo’s soccer abilities.
The timing is also fitting. With these events unfolding just before Halloween, it becomes either awesome or suspiciously convenient. It would seem like a stunt for Paris Hilton to gain some publicity, but somehow this has gained steam and legitmacy in the press.
According to The Spoiler, the mage is willing to inflict more magical harm and won’t relinquish the curse even if his mother came and begged him.
You don’t see too many warlocks nowadays. You’ll see some Wiccas, but even they aren’t as mystical as television sometimes makes them out to be. You don’t even really see any paranormal investigators outside of the reality television circuit. It’s sad as this always makes for some intriguing stuff.
