I know it has been a long time since Melissa Joan Hart has had a cover story in a tabloid. In fact, she really hasn't had many at all. So, with the opening of her new candy store as well as a new movie coming out, Melissa Joan Hart wanted some publicity. She played the I lost weight card and a whole lot of favors into a cover story in People Magazine and also got herself lots of television spots as a result. It was during one of those television spots on KTLA that Melissa slipped and said something she is going to regret for a very long time and will probably cost her all that positive publicity she was trying to generate.
In a line that can be heard, but not seen, Melissa said she was so happy Farrah Fawcett was still alive because if Farrah had died, then Melissa would not have been on the cover of People. All of those months of planning would have gone down the drain if Farrah had died.
I understand that she wanted publicity, but to wish that someone stays alive simply to get on the cover of a magazine is cold and callous to such an extent that it is going to make people dislike her and her damn candy store for a long time. Oh, and while we are on the subject of candy stores, who goes on the cover of a magazine and tells people she lost 42 pounds and then invites them over to her store so they can load up on candy and ice cream? "Come on. I'm not fat anymore, but I want you to come spend money at my store so you can get fat."
