Investigation Discovery's KARMA'S A B*TCH! Returns Tonight
Returning with outrageously creative and comical ways to get mad and get even, Sopranos' star Steve Schirripa serves up another round of ruthless Revenge schemes when KARMA'S A B*TCH! returns to Investigation Discovery. From disgruntled employees turning the tables on their horrible bosses to underdogs publicly shaming their mean-girl bullies and scorned lovers fighting for their fairytale ending after Prince Charming charmed the pants off someone else, each episode highlights hilarious ways to appropriately - or not so appropriately - settle the score. Ranging from covert operations to public shaming or viral vengeance, each half hour episode features two Revenge stories that prove "what goes around, comes around." Viewers get their fix of jilted justice and devious Deception plots when season two of KARMA'S A B*TCH! returns with back-to-back episodes tonight, April 17 at 10 and 10:30 PM (E/P).
"This series teaches you an important life lesson: when life hands you lemons, find a cunning way to squeeze that lemon right back in the eye of the guy who's wronged you!" said Henry Schleiff, President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, AMERICAN HEROES CHANNEL and Discovery Fit & Health. "KARMA'S A B*TCH! brings some much needed lightheartedness to ID: anyone who has ever been wronged in their life will find a bit of catharsis in these stories - sprinkled with a bit of regret that they didn't think of it first!"
In each episode of KARMA'S A B*TCH!, Steve Schirripa guides viewers through a delightfully devious WORLD of unrelenting revenge. First up on April 17 at 10 PM, a crooked mover's scam, hidden in the "fine print" section of his contract, is exposed when a victim goes undercover with the FBI to get her property back. Then, a cheated-on girlfriend decides to kick "Mr. Right" right where it hurts: his sports car. She takes burning love to a whole new level by rubbing habanero pepper juice all over his car surfaces and stashing a rotten trout behind his subwoofer. At 10:30, a woman uses Facebook to lure her "wage-thief" employer out of hiding and into the arms of a bounty hunter instead of the sexy bait she had teed up for him. Then, overweight Caitlin Seida is bullied online - something easy for haters to do under the veil of anonymity that the internet provides. But, Seida finds a way to track down hundreds of her bullies and "out" them by posting an online certificate of being an internet a**hole for all to see.
From scorned spouses, upset exes and Deadbeat dads, season two of KARMA'S A B*TCH! is riddled with outrageous stories of meticulously-planned payback plots, such as: a woman who sues her ex over "failure to marry" and wins $150k; a man who finds 101 uses for his ex-wife's wedding dress and becomes an internet sensation; and a woman who turns the tables on a debt collection agency and collects a $10 million harassment settlement.
