Paging TLC: Randy Quaid ripe for reality TV, Canada gives him the boot

If Honey Boo Boo can score a reality TV series, why not Randy Quaid?

Remember al the craziness from Randy Quaid and his wife, who talked of star whackers, stiffed on their hotel bills and are now on the lam from the state of California?

The Quaids are making news again thanks to Canada shooing them out.

They're wanted in California for allegedly skipping out on a huge hotel bill and vandalizing a house they squatted in (they were former owners). The couple fled north of the border earlier this month, and were arrested in Vancouver on outstanding warrants from California and were released on $10,000 bail.


ABC news and CNN are reporting that Canadian immigration officials have denied U.S. actor Randy Quaid's request for permanent resident status in Canada.

A Canadian government official confirmed late Saturday his request for permanent status has been denied. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. Quaid can appeal the decision to the federal court.

Quaid claims he was being hunted by "Hollywood star-whackers" who had killed his friends David Carradine and Heath Ledger.

According to the, Randy Quaid's troubles began in 2010, and have since spiralled out of control. Quaid is the older brother of actor Dennis Quaid and is undeniably a talented actor, known for standout roles in "Brokeback Mountain," "National Lampoon's Vacation" and "Independence Day." He also won a Golden Globe award for his depiction of President Lyndon Johnson in a TV movie in the late 1980s.
