31-year-old “Ugly Betty” and “Step Up 3D” actor* Michael Brea had a complete psychotic breakdown last night in which he butchered his own mother with a ceremonial Masonic sword after she turned into the devil incarnate in his apartment. The Long Island Press says:
Brea could be heard screaming “Repent, repent, repent!” and shouting other Biblical and masonic references.
Brea was also yelling, “architect of the universe,” a term that Freemasons use to refer to a supreme being. Brea was a member of the Freemasons and that he had been to a meeting earlier in the evening.
According to police sources, the Masonic sword Brea used to murder his mother was 3-feet long and supposed to be used for ceremonial use.
Brea was taken straight to Bellevue Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. There, he confessed that, “When I looked at my mother, I saw the devil.”
That’s practically one of my family Thanksgivings word for word. Only the sword is more passive-aggressiveness and shame than actual weapon, and the butchering comes in the form of getting drunk enough to throw up cranberry chutney on your sister’s pashmina. Happy holidays to you and yours from Yeeeah!
*I cannot confirm his roles in “Ugly Betty” or “Step Up 3D” as I’m not in the habit of watching crap, not even crap in two dimensions.
