When Publicists Make Actors Look Stupid


Raise your hands if you know who Heather Mills is. Hey, even if you don't read the tabloids, the chances are good you may have hear her name once or twice or seen her in Kneepads Magazine, or hey, over on ABC on their #1 show Dancing With The Stars. Do you think that maybe if you are also on an ABC show that perhaps you might know who at least some of the contestants are on the show?

In fact, wouldn't you think that probably most people in the entertainment industry would know who Heather Mills is, and that to not know who she is would make you seem kind of ignorant, stupid, or just plain dumb and uninformed. Well, welcome to the world of Eva Longoria. Apparently Eva is wrapped and cocooned in her own idyllic corner of the world and has no idea what is going on outside of the mirror constantly attached to her face.

There had been reports last week that Eva had blocked Heather Mills from appearing on Desperate Housewives. Well, first of all Eva wishes she had that kind of power, and secondly, who really cares what she thinks. Well, her publicist reacted quickly and efficiently and ripped everyone a new for one suggesting Eva would ever do anything like that.

In fact, her publicist went so far as to say, "Eva doesn't even know who Heather Mills is." Not, the never met her, or barely knows her, but straight for the doesn't even know who she is. So, did Liza (Eva's publicist) call up Eva and ask her about Heather, and, then Eva put her thinking cap on real tight and concentrated real hard and didn't even know who Heather was. That is a bunch of crap.

I tell ya these publicists are glorified pathological liars. can you believe there are college degrees for it? Hypothetical question: if a PR major cheats on a "How To Be A Publicist" exam, are they a)guaranteed an A because they did what it takes to succeed b)given an F because they tried to be truthful c)graduated with honors and a coveted permanent bottom entry level position awaiting them in a top Hollywood PR firm because they upheld their ban on lying about being truthful while practicing their kneepads research with the standing professor?
