A video from the 90’s VH1 TV show called “Fabulous” has emerged. Its going viral because it features the world’s most infamous pedophile – Jeffrey Epstein, promotes his lavish lifestyle and showcases his “Rich and Famous” friends like Bill Clinton and Kevin Spacey (among other celebs). This did not age well in light of the scandals surrounding Epstein.
This quote from the NY Post.
It’s not exactly fabulous.
A clip of disgraced pedophile and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein on VH1’s “The Fabulous Life of…” has resurfaced.
A two-minute cringe-worthy clip from Epstein’s feature on the show was shared by a Twitter user this week and is spreading like wildfire.
“35 seconds in and you’re thinking, this won’t get worse. But it does,” wrote Eoin Higgins, who posted the video.
Epstein, who died by suicide in prison in 2019, was featured on the reality series in a 2007 episode called “The Fabulous Life of Billion Dollar Wall Street Ballers.”
The financier was revealed to have been worth around $560 million shortly before his death.
“Jeff was a high school math teacher who traded his blackboard for the big board,” the narrator says. “He just couldn’t keep out of the classroom. When he bought himself a house, he bought himself a school house.”
This, of course, is his famed Upper East Side mansion, which just sold for $51 million. There, Epstein kept a bizarre painting of his buddy Bill Clinton and a safe filled with hundreds of nude photos of his victims, many of whom were underage. It’s also where the convicted sex offender had a ghastly “massage room” filled with a table and sex toys.
“It has incredible bells and whistles,” commentator Jason Oliver Nixon boasts in a hard-to-watch testimonial. “Closed-circuit televisions, a heated sidewalk out front so the snow melts.”
The video also brags about his “small fleet” of private planes, including a Boeing 727, that he used to fly around the world with bros Clinton and Kevin Spacey, who’s been accused of sexual assault several times.

In other pedo-news, Epstein’s alleged partner in sex crimes – Ghislaine Maxwell was recently photographed with a black eye. This from MSN News.
The photo was included in a Manhattan Federal Court filing from Maxwell’s lawyer Bobbi Sternheim asking Judge Alison Nathan who is overseeing Maxwell’s criminal case to order the Bureau of Prisons to stop shining a light into her cell.
Maxwell’s attorney claimed they did not know the cause of the bruising, but noted that it could be linked to her difficulty getting a good night’s sleep due to staff at the Metropolitan Detention Center shining a flashlight into her cell overnight every 15 minutes.
I hope some of the Epstein (and alleged Maxwell) victims feel some small comfort in this until the day Maxwell is fully prosecuted for her alleged crimes. I shudder to think of how many suffer in silence to this very day. No one really knows how many victims are out there. When Epstein was indicted, The Cut reported this.
Estimates of the total number of girls allegedly abused by Epstein varies, with accounts ranging from a few dozen to over 100. The recent indictment charges Epstein with sexually exploiting and abusing “dozens” of underage girls at his homes in Manhattan, Palm Beach, and other locations, with allegations dating back as far as 2002. However, it seems likely that the total number of victims is much higher.
Investigations into Epstein began in 2005, after the parents of a 14-year-old girl told Palm Beach police that Epstein had molested their daughter at his home. According to the Miami Herald, by 2008, when Epstein was granted his now-infamous plea deal, federal prosecutors had identified 36 underage victims.
Julie K. Brown, the Miami Herald journalist who published a series of articles on the allegations against Epstein, told the New York Times that early in the process of reporting, she received a heavily redacted police report that mentioned more than 100 Jane Does. In November 2018, Brown reported that the Herald had identified about 80 women who alleged that they were molested or sexually abused by Epstein between 2001 and 2006. Of these women, the Herald was able to locate around 60, eight of whom agreed to be interviewed.
Wild, who first met Epstein in 2002, when she was 14, told the Herald that by the time she was 16, she “had probably brought him 70 to 80 girls who were all 14 and 15 years old.” Wild said that Epstein told her he wanted girls “as young as I could find them” and that “he wanted as many girls as I could get him. It was never enough.” Other witnesses have testified in civil court that hundreds of girls were brought to Epstein’s homes.
In that same article, there are sexual accounts of Epstein and Maxwell committing sex crimes together and that Maxwell acted as Epstein’s recruiter. As of April 16, 2021, a judge rejected Maxwell’s bid to dismiss her original indictment of tag teaming with Epstein on his pedo-pursuits. Moreover, a “U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan rejected Maxwell’s arguments that she could not get a fair trial because of a drumbeat of negative media publicity, or was being scapegoated because Epstein was dead.“
Maxwell’s trial is set for July 12, 2021. It is my hope that her black eye is a sign of greater justice on the horizon. Their victims deserve that much.
