It’s becoming easier and easier to get famous these days.
Jeremy Meeks’ criminal past is undermined as his looks turn him into a household name. The internet sensation that inspired Felon Crush Friday signed with talent agent Gina Rodriguez. She’s infamous for giving 15-minute famers—Teen Mom‘s Farrah Abraham, ‘Octomom’, and V. Stiviano—longevity.
Her reasoning behind it, “I don’t feel like he got a fair break.” Obviously the so-called “man” has been holding him down forcing him to have a lengthy wrap sheet. She told FOX411 exclusively:
“Everybody has a story, and I, of all people, know that,” Rodriguez told FOX411 exclusively. “The types of personalities that I work with are usually the people who are under fire by the media. If this was a different situation, like if someone was actually hurt or there was violence involved, I definitely would not be taking him on. But we don’t know Jeremy’s full story yet, and I don’t feel like he got a fair break. I really don’t. If we can help him in any way with his future and help him turn his life around, that’s what I’m about. That’s what I want to do for him.”
However before he can “turn his life around” he has to get past the whole reason he’s famous now, his legal issues. But if or when he beats his case, Rodriguez is pushing to get him a reality show on BET. She’s hoping since Chris Brown turned down his opportunity, maybe Jeremy can snag one.
“We’ve spoken with four production companies and three different modeling agencies,” Rodriguez explained. “A lot of TV shows that want to cover it, a lot of news shows. It’s just been crazy, the type of media attention that he’s gotten.”
And if TV’s not his up his alley, he’s a shoe in for many modeling gigs.
“Jim Jordan, who owns White Cross Management, is very interested in Jeremy.We’ve had tons of people trying to get interviews with Jeremy, which I think right now is a little bit overwhelming for the family. Their main concern is really trying to get him out.”
All we can say to his is only in America.
