Weston Cage got a reality show, “wants to show the world he’s not mentally ill”


In retrospect, we should have seen this coming — Weston Cage has scored a reality show — but let’s recap the situation anyway. In June of this year, Weston publicly flew into a physical rage and tried to beat the crap out of his personal trainer, who had made the mistake of telling him to not order an unhealthy dish for lunch. After a quick hospitalization, Weston was out on the streets and proceeded (one month later) to get himself arrested on felony domestic violence charges. During this incident, his pregnant wife, Nikki Williams was also arrested after she got blazingly drunk and threatened to jump off a balcony. One week later, Weston went to dinner with Nikki and his scantily-clad mother, Christina Fulton, and showed off his roundhouse kick for the paps. Then the next week, Weston was arrested again on fresh felony domestic violence charges. In late July, Weston checked into rehab where he’s remained until this day.

For her part, Nikki has “stood by her man” and refused to press charges; she has also admitted that she was drinking while pregnant on the night she was arrested, saying “That was the only occasion I consumed alcohol since I found out that I’m pregnant and I really regret my decision to do so.” Nikki also added, in regard to herself and Weston, “We may be passionate, but we are not crazy.” Well, that last part is definitely debatable.

Also over the summer, Nikki signed a recording contract with J Records (the label of Alicia Keys and Pitbull). Exactly why they signed her is a mystery because a quick check on her MySpace page reveals that Nikki screams instead of sings, especially in a song called “Get Back in Your Cage,” the title of which simply cannot be a coincidence. J Records has since shuttered; most of its artists were absorbed by RCA records although Nikki’s fate under the label is undetermined. She has removed “J records artist” from her Twitter profile. In addition and if her tweets are to be believed, she’s either no longer pregnant or still drinking while pregnant because she’s tweeted about drinking alcohol on many occasions and as recently as Oct. 18 (“Happy Hour Happily.”) and Oct. 14 (“Beer thirty!“). Certainly, all of this will add to the drama of the impending reality show that will also star Weston and Christina too:

Nicolas Cage’s son Weston and his mother Christina Fulton are to appear in a new reality TV show called “Uncaged.”

Nicolas Cage’s ex-girlfriend and their son are to star in a new reality TV show.

Christina Fulton and 20-year-old Weston Cage – who checked into rehab in July and was arrested twice on suspicion of domestic violence following a fight with wife Nikki –have agreed to be followed by cameras for “Uncaged,” a new VH1 programme.

A source told America’s Star magazine: “Christina said the show will be like a modern-day Addams Family. Weston just wants to show the world he’s not mentally ill.”

News of the show comes after Christina revealed plans to release an album, also called Uncaged, which features lyrical attacks on her ex-partner.

Speaking about the record, she said: “This has been a cathartic experience to help me move forward from the past.”

Her first single, “Thank You,” features the lyrics: “You stood there and you lied right through your teeth / You gave me your word you promised everything – You’re not the guy that I fell for, you’re the monster I left / Such a snake, my worst mistake, yea, all you made was a mess. I learned to hate what you stand for, can’t believe I was blind / But you’ll get yours and I’ll be fine, honey, all in good time.”

In an interesting cross between trainwreck universes, Christina’s “Thank You” apparently premiered on “Jersey Shore,” Season 4, Episode 9 (otherwise known as “Three Men and a Snooki”). About a month ago, Christina also appeared on CNN to talk with Dr. Drew about her son’s drug and alcohol addictions. My question is this — Christina and Nicolas haven’t been together in almost two decades, so why did she wait until now to really start talking smack about him? My best guess is one (or both) of the following reasons: (1) Weston didn’t really lose his sh-t until recently, since mental illness often reaches its peak in early adulthood, and now is the time to capitalize on those problems and also blame some crap on Nicolas too; (2) Since Weston is 20-years-old now, she’s probably recently ran out of child support money.

At any rate, we can now look forward to watching Weston, Christina, and darling Nikki doing their “modern-day Addams Family” routine on television. The really sad part is that I probably won’t be able to stop myself from watching.

    This is obvious. Nic Sr went bankrupt and the money ran out. Now his kid who is unsuited to any real job and his ex who probably has been living off of monthly checks from Nic for the last few decades have to fend for themselves. Please lets make Nic a movie star again so that we don’t have to be subjected to this family.
    And to think this lump of nothingness shares DNA with the man who directed the greatest films of all time???

  2. ZigZagZoey says:

    Trust me dude, this is NOT the way to do it!

  3. NM9005 says:

    If you are on a reality show, it actually proves you’re a crazy ass mother*. Normal people aren’t shown on tv because it’s considered boring by those moneygrubbing entertainment businesses thus unmarketable.

  4. Jackson says:

    Good God. At least KimK had to fuk someone to get a show.

  5. bc says:

    You know what? At least he’s in rehab, and he has stayed in rehab for the past several months. That is more than can be said about certain people…*cough*lohan*cough*

  6. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    This is too cray cray, and Westons mom looks like Taylor Armstrong.

  7. Turtle Dove says:

    Sadly, Weston reminds me of some of my relatives. We can’t choose them unfortunately. Nic must be so embarrassed to be affiliated with both of them. Hopefully, this doesn’t impact his career.

  8. ladybert62 says:

    Oh my – the man who could double for charlie manson is going to have a reality show – should be interesting if not downright sick and pathetic.

    What are the odds that a reality show will actually help this family – zilch!

  9. kieslwoski says:

    MLN76 I so agree with you Nic Cage went bankrupt and cannot provide the lavish lifestyle he had provided her for years.

    I kow this is awful but I will totally watch this show.

  10. judyjudy says:

    I hoe someone at CPS has looked into this case regarding this woman getting shitfaced drunk while pregnant …

  11. ShanKat says:

    So far, so great, Wes! Based on the pictures, everything seems totally fine.

  12. Kaboom says:

    They should have a US celebrity big brother show in a maximum security facility. I suggest these three, Lindsay, Dina and Michael, Mel Gibson, Shia, Britney Spears and Jared Leto for the first season.

  13. Pyewacket says:

    FYI- Nic Cage is hardly destitute. Bankruptcy doesn’t mean you are penniless, just that you are screwing a lot of your creditors out of being paid what you owe them

  14. Rubenesque says:

    His mom wore that in public? Wow. I vow to stop making fun of my mom’s “Sunday school teacher” dresses & my MIL’s themed sweaters. Really.

  15. mln76 says:

    @Pyewacket. Nic is another Michael Jackson. He’s addicted to spending money, more money than he actually has access to. So while by everyday standards Nic is rolling in the dough I do believe by Hollywood standards he is broke and I also believe he has cut off his oldest and the mom which is why they are doing a reality show :)

  16. hanna says:

    He creeps me the f-ck out. What’s up with him being surrounded with these bimbos? No wonder why he’s messed up.

  17. Marytere says:

    Who’s this guy?? I mean it.

  18. bluhare says:

    Wow. Had to sit for a sec and figure out which one’s the mom and which one’ the gf.

    (But I think she looks like Taylor Armstrong too.)

  19. i.want.shoes says:

    I still giggle at those pictures where he demonstrates his kicking abilities! He looks like some sort of deranged, dirty, patent-leather-shoe-with-no-socks wearing genie

  20. Brandymc1980 says:

    he has beautiful eyes.

  21. Brandymc1980 says:

    He kinda of scares me a little, though.

  22. ZenB!tch says:

    @Turtle Dove Nic is just as bat$#!t crazy. Where do you think the kid got it.

  23. gab says:

    Poppin some corn, pulling up my chair.
    Who is bringing the crack-tinis for this?

  24. Lantana says:

    Geez no paternity test ever required on that one, huh? I’m actually kind of impressed by the roundhouse…and to do it while smoking no less. I say liquor the guy up and give him a show (but keep him away from the pg wife).

  25. Turtle Dove says:

    ZenB!tch – at least Nic can hide it. These three… ick. The son is an embarrassing mess.

    I’m agreeing with everyone else who says that this reality show is a result of being cut off financially. I guess they’ll have to hustle for their own money… and when the reality checks are cashed and spent, they can “hustle” in a different way…. two of them already have the wardrobe for it.

  26. Phoenix says:

    I can’t help it, I think he’s really hot. He’s batshit cray cray but it’s a welcome change from LiLo’s constant cracked out court appearances. I feel bad for Weston, but I still think he’s hot!

  27. Auds says:

    Celebrity kids are such pains in the ass. Whatever happened to getting a real job? But no, because their parents feel so self entitled, they too learn to have the same attitude: reality TV.
    I’m waiting for the day Americans habituate en-masse and switch off this staged bullshit that passes for reality that does absolutely nothing to educate society.
    When you think about it, it’s more worthwhile to have a documentary type or ‘reality type’ show that focuses on work that other celebrities do. Like something along the lines of ‘A Month with Angelina’, that follows her to countries she visits, rather than this celebrity brat-fest.
    I blame the Osbournes for everything!

  28. smh says:

    uhhh shut the fuck up you were probably dropped on the head as a baby
    by your mentally unstable self important dad
    just vanish already
    your music is shit you are shit everything about you is shit shit shitttttt

  29. dahlia1947 says:

    I don’t know if I would watch this show. He looks kind of good looking in that first pic. I love his eyes. If he cleaned himself up I think he’d be pretty hot!

  30. KKola says:

    What an insult to the Addams Family franchise. I see possible suicide in the future. I so feel for the baby. Sad.

    Where is Kirk Cameron when you need him?
