Surprised no one has discussed this.

Also interesting that wikipedia doesn't mention hew went to RMA.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Francis

Also, anyone know of any films/documentaries about CEDU/RMA?

....Put up your beat sheets and please feel free to bend the pushpin tips...we charge your parents $20 a box for those from the commissary..

According to Radar[11], in 2004, Francis was kidnapped, held at gunpoint and videotaped in sexually degrading positions[12]. He was subsequently blackmailed. In an interview on July 24, 2006, on The Adam Carolla Show, Francis stated that he was in fact kidnapped, held at gunpoint, and later blackmailed for the tape. He denied that he performed sexual acts, but stated that he was only forced to say "something like" "I'm a homosexual." on the camera. The tape, or a copy of it, was recovered by the LAPD for use in the criminal trial of his assailant, Darnell Riley. On February 7, 2006, Riley pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 10 years and eight months in Corcoran State Prison.

How weird. Wasn't there a dramatization of this incident on a TV show? I think it was CSI. Part of me almost thinks he set this up as a publicity stunt.

Why is that interesting? They don't mention RMA or CEDU for any other celebrities who went to those places. The wiki entry on Paris Hilton, for example.


I totally don't remember Joe. He must have gotten there right as I was about to graduate. Although I don't remember much about younger students in general when I was in upper school, unless they were close friends or I lived in the dorms with them.


...lord, you have no idea how many of those damn pushpins I went through. Stupid dense wood. I should've lined my bunk with corkboard.

Were you there for the Mr. Peabody incident? Poor little guy. I wonder what it's like to get sloppy seconds off of a stuffed animal?

Joe graduated around 1991. (Paris and others like her only did a few weeks or months).

It would be interesting to see the media try to interpret RMA in relation to Joe's evolution from "model RMA grad" to porn magnate.

Yeah I think there was a CSI based on the kidnapping.


Fortunately I have never heard of the peabody - however I do recall Shannon Earle being at the top of my rolodex.

Small world... but Joe DIDN'T graduate.  He "got dirty" on a home visit and was pulled by his parents.  He'd been my first big brother.  His family had been in sales, too (vitamin supplements).  I guess he figured out another franchise.

Well it certainly is good to see a local boy gone good. I mean, this is a whole lot healthier than Herbalife and meth, isn't it?

*laughs* She was in my peer group. (Remember how we had staff members that went along with your peer group through propheets and expeditions.) We definitely had fun on the wilderness challenge, but nothing sordid. Just silly fun. She and M would stand back in amusement and watch my temper tantrums when I tripped on a stick or got too tired and irritable, which was often.


Let's just say that Mr. Peabody was an unfortunately-fated substitute for teen boy lust in the form of a plush toy. Once the staff found out, he was confiscated. Probably for the best, since I doubt he was ever washed between uses.

I assumed Joe graduated - he was in quest/challenge when I was in summit.

The peabody confiscation rings a bell now.

Also, I didn't know his parents were into Herbalife. Herbalife is whacked. I read a bio on the founder - crazy shit.

there is no proof that this is the same joe francis.

I am sure it is not.

If it is, why has the RMA point not been put on the news. It would make some sort of a headline and in the sick world its all about money.

I went to RMA at the same time as joe, he was a few peers below me. I hated the bastard. He was a false person who just had no clue.

Its a sad story of a rich kid. If it is joe for real, that doesnt matter! He got his money from his dad and made a million. not hard to do when you have money to start with. Is he happy? on the surface i guess? But as a sole, he will forever be lost.


The real winners from the school are the ones who make it in the real world with nothing, they take a bad thing and make it better. I know of one such person. Its not a contest either. These people are not happy. Happiness is a personal thing, so given your same chance, your happiness will no doubt take a diffrent form.

It is the same Joe Francis.  I am not one to get into a pointless arguements but I'd be happy to make a friendly wager with you (easy money for me). I have pictures of him in my Graduation book.

Hence my original post "suprised no one has mentioned it on Fornits or Wikipedia".

From what I've read he was working in Hollywood on some stupid early reality shows and saw a very lucrative opportunity (ggw).  He saw the opportunity and turned it into a goldmine. From a business perspective it's interesting and has it's merits. And yes I am aware of the negative aspects of GGW. Not here to defend him nor putt him down. Simply looking at the facts and making an observation.

Joe has a new website with 18 pages of 'his story'. Page 2 & 3 cover his elementary & junior high school years where he was sent to a few boarding schools including a military reform school.

However on page 4 he makes no reference to RMA

http://www.meetjoefrancis.com/mystory/

It seems that all former Staff and students with websites never acknowledge that they went there. I guess I wouldn't put it on my website if I had a website. Hell, I felt the same way for a long time. I didn't and still don't tell good friends that I went there. It's a dirty little secret.



HIGH SCHOOL

Junior High school was a blur. As soon as I was old enough, I got a work permit and found my first job, serving ice cream and sweeping floors for $3.35 an hour at Gelato Classico. I can’t tell you why, but I have always loved work. I would always rather be working than not. I spent all day at school just staring at the clock, waiting until I could run to the bus stop and get back to my job. I was thrilled to be making my own money. Not because I was anxious to buy anything, but because I wanted to eliminate any chance of ever being poor. I had watched my dad worry about money his whole life, and I was determined not to have my own life defined by constant financial insecurity. So I worked hard and saved.

I don’t have many fond memories of Laguna Beach High. It was a pleasant enough place, but I couldn’t stay engaged by high school culture. I certainly wasn’t much of a player, thanks to a mouthful of what felt like the most outlandishly huge set of braces ever wired into a poor kid’s face.

I was more interested in my after-school jobs. Whenever I found one that earned more money, I traded up. Eventually, I landed at a computer/video store where I learned to fix computers and sell video rental memberships. I discovered that I had an affinity for sales. I love talking to people and enjoy helping them invest in something I know they will be happy with. Sales allowed me to earn enough to buy my first car, an $800 Audi that I tricked it out with plastic rims and a cheap green paint job. It wasn’t the kind of car that was going to get me laid, but it represented something that I’ve grown to cherish more than just about anything else in life: freedom.

For me, high school was something to be endured until I could finally get into the world and make my own way. I didn’t attend my prom; I wasn’t voted “most likely to succeedâ€

Its a nice solid fluff piece.   I sure as hell would not put on a website that I attended RMA.   At dinner parties, when some unfortunate soul starts to ask me those lame biography questions I never mention RMA.   All that 99.9% of my friends know is that I went to several high schools, if they know that much.   Most are smart enough to fill in the blanks, once they know that my family was not in the military or apart of the diplomatic core.  It would be rude to ask additional questions -- that god!
