THE life and times of home electronics peddler "Crazy Eddie" Antar may soon become a major movie, thanks to Danny DeVito and his Jersey Films.
DeVito and several other producers are hot for Antar's story after recently seeing him on CNBC being confronted by his cousin, Sam Antar, whose testimony sent Eddie to federal prison for 7½ years.
There are rumors that my cousin Eddie Antar has been attempting to cash in and sell his story. What I have to say about Crazy Eddie is not for sale.
I am not involved in any movie project relating to Crazy Eddie. I have lived a shameful life filled with ugly, vile, malicious, and evil criminal acts. I do not have any desire to peddle my story about Crazy Eddie and make money off the backs of my countless victims.
