Survivor producer accused of strangling wife

Talk about reality. Bruce Beresford-Redman, producer of Survivor, might be glad he picked up some survivor skills now that he's in a fix worse than any contestant: arrested in Mexico for allegedly strangling his wife, Monica Beresford-Redman, owner of the popular Zabumba Brazilian restaurant on Venice Boulevard.

Beresford-Redman told police that his wife vanished Monday from the luxurious Moon Palace resort where they were staying. He went on KCAL-TV last night to say she was missing and that he was helping in the search.

Today would have been Monica's birthday.


(Beresford-Redman also created the MTV series Pimp My Ride. He should not be confused with Aussie Bruce Beresford, who directed Driving Miss Daisy and 'Breaker' Morant.)

AFTERNOON UPDATE: Police say Beresford-Redmond is being questioned by has not been arrested; the couple was supposedly seen arguing before Monica disappeared; her body was found in a sewer on the resort grounds with signs of "possible strangulation."
