Kneepads Opened Wide For This One



You and I both know that we can always count on the fine folks at Kneepads to just smile and do exactly what the publicists want. I especially love it when they do so even though they are blissfully ignoring pictures and evidence which makes their whole article laughable.

What is particularly galling about this article is that it is about Mischa Barton. Hey, People, you don't have to be nice to each star. Sometimes stars don't make a comeback and so you can cut them loose and go ahead and report the truth instead of lies. I understand that perhaps their publicist represents other people you want to blow, but sometimes you have to put your slipper down and just say no.

People quotes liberally from a Marie Claire article. Now, the reason I am not ragging on Marie Claire is because they put Mischa on their cover this month. Why? The editors were on drugs is my guess. But anyway, once you decide to put her on your cover you have to make her look good. Don't agree with it, but understand it.

Kneepads on the other hand could have used the opportunity to do exactly what I am about to do to refute everything Mischa said. Instead, they just bent over a little more.

In April, the former O.C. actress pleaded no contest to driving under the influence. She describes her December arrest as an "awful low."

"The thing is, I hate drunk drivers. Living in L.A., I can't stand them, and that's why I was so disappointed in myself," she says. "I wanted to prove to the court that I would take it completely seriously, so I went to rehab to prove I was sober.

May 22, 2008. - I guess it is possible that isn't a slightly plastered look on her face and that Taylor drank the half bottle of Tequila by himself. While also at Cannes, Mischa was spotted drinking champagne instead of being at the premiere of her new film which was supposed to be her only reason for being in Cannes.

"It really helped in getting the more serious aspects of my case dropped because, you know, that's what they want to hear: you're not an alcoholic, and you don't have a problem."

July 17, 2008 - Berlin - I'm guessing by the way she guzzled that one, that more was certainly on the way.



So, from what I'm reading here she basically lied to the court. She told the court she was sober and not an alcoholic when in fact she wasn't sober. Either that or she isn't sober and so is off the wagon. Her choice.

At least her hair looks pretty in all those photos. Isn't that the most important thing?

People isn't the only one whoring for publicists. TMZ on TV is the WORST. It's transparent as all hell.

lol mooshki. It's very important.

I think each publication, media, whatever has their day of the week whoring for publicists.

Sounds like a game show.

Just sayin...

Mooshki--it is hair purchased from some 3rd world teen to make her stupid extensions. That hair resulted in some family being able to eat for the next year.
I should cancel my subscription.

lol! well, you can certainly knock back three, four, five, six, seven etc drinks in a night, get completely wasted and NOT be an alcoholic. However, why cant these celebs just be honest and say that? "Yeah I had quite a bit to drink that night, and fucked up by drink driving. Yes, i still drink from time to time but will certainly make sure to not break the law again by driving when drunk. No, I am not an alcoholic." There. Simple.
