Roman Polanski's wife is not pleased
Roman Polanski's wife Emmanuelle
is pissed at him for raping 13-year-old Samantha Geimer
in 1977. Oh wait, no she's not, that would make too much sense. She's pissed that he was placed under house arrest as he fights extradition back to the United States to face charges

Roman Polanski's wife said her husband's imprisonment in a 32-year-old sexual abuse case has diminished her carefree spirit and terrified and disoriented the couple's two children.
But Emmanuelle Seigner, 43, also said in an interview with the Polish magazine Viva! that she's convinced "the matter will be solved."
"I am no longer such a carefree person, I am no longer the same Emmanuelle," Seigner said.
Seigner said that she and the children do not live with Polanski in Gstaad but visit as often as they can.
Oh no, Emmanuelle's carefree spirit was diminished? I, I, I didn't realize she was being put through such hell. I take everything back I ever said about Roman! Hey, you know what also diminishes a carefree spirit? GETTING RAPED IN THE ASS BEFORE YOUR 14TH BIRTHDAY
Roman Polanski ordered to return to the United States
Paging Mr. Polanski. Paging Mr. Polanski. You're needed in the United States. Ha Ha Ha PWN3D! From the New York Daily News
Film director Roman Polanski lost his bid to be sentenced without returning to the U.S. when a judge ruled the director must be present in court if he wants to resolve his 32-year-old sex case. Reiterating Polanski was a fugitive from justice, Superior Court Judge Peter Espinoza said he was acting to protect "the dignity of the court."
Bart Dalton, a lawyer for Polanski, said the ruling would be appealed.
Before the hearing, the judge provided lawyers with his 11-page tentative decision denying the request by the 76-year-old Polanski, who fled the U.S. in 1978 after pleading guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor.
Lawyers Chad Hummel, who represents Polanski, and Lawrence Silver, who represents victim Samantha Geimer, tried to convince Espinoza to change his mind.
What a jerk this Judge Espinoza guy is. Doesn't he know that Roman directed Chinatown
? For Christ's sake, it got an 8.5 on IMDB

. If that doesn't give you the right to stick your dick up a 13-year-old's ass while she pleads for you to stop, I just don't know what does.

Turns out Roman Polanski is an even bigger monster than anyone thought. In 1993 -- 15 years after he raped 13-year-old Samantha Geimer -- Polanski agreed to pay $500,000 to settle a lawsuit she brought against him. Not only did he not initially pay her the money, it's unclear if she ever collected anything. From PopEater
The terms of the settlement were confidential, but the amount was disclosed in court documents because of a two-year struggle to get Polanski to pay. Court records, which were provided to media outlets Friday, do not indicate if Polanski ever paid. The last court filing in August 1996 shows Polanski, now 76, owed Geimer $604,416.22, including interest.
In a December 1995 filing, [Geimer's attorney Lawrence] Silver said "defendant has failed to pay any part of the sum due or the interest due on the attached note." Silver added that he talked to [Polanski's attorney David] Finkle, who agreed Polanski was in default.
Silver then sought some of Polanski's earnings by canvassing Hollywood for his wages. Among those who were contacted about Polanski were the Directors Guild of America, International Creative Management, Warner Bros. Inc. and Sony Studios.
I hate to play devil's advocate here, but in Roman's defense, before he stuck his dick up Samantha's ass to her repeated pleas of "no, no, no," she lied and told him she was actually 13-and-a-half
. How come all these people so quick to cast guilt never talk about that little fact?
