Beverly Hills 90210MG

Hard to believe it was 25 years ago this week that Lyle and Erik Menendez savagely murdered their parents in their Beverly Hills home, then went on a shopping spree to end all shopping sprees. Their trials were mesmerizing -- Leslie Abramson's unruly defense and unrulier hair, the satellite tennis tour, the alleged sexual abuse at the hands of their father, Lyle's toupe! -- but after seducing enough jurors the first time around, the boys were finally convicted and put away for life. Prison hasn't put a cramp in their social lives -- Lyle's first jailhouse marriage ended when his wife found out he was "cheating"(!) on her with another penpal and Erik had a Twinkie for his wedding cake after tying the knot with Tammi in 1997 -- even if the public's thirst for news about them has faded. Before she dies, I'd love to see Barbara Walters do one last interview with the deadly duo to see if age and time behind bars has changed them at all, although somehow it doubt it has. Read HERE.
