If you were People or US Weekly or any of the tabloids would you give Mischa Barton a cover? Hell no. She isn't that big of a celebrity. The only reason she is kind of famous is because there is so much content that everyone has to fill and there are not that many women who dress like a hippie homeless person from the 60's and gets arrested.
The average person in the checkout line at the grocery store is going to have no idea who Mischa Barton is and so is not likely to buy a magazine with her on the cover despite the fact she is in a hospital and is bloated beyond recognition.
This hasn't stopped Mischa's publicist from trying to land her a cover though. According to The NY Post, Craig Schneider has been calling around trying to get Mischa a cover story this week. I'm glad to know he works hard for her getting publicity. How about putting that much effort into making sure she is ok. I think this is the same guy who said she planned on showing up to work on that new show of hers. Seriously? How about just focusing on her issues instead of trying to get her ready to be on some dumb ass CW show. What is more important?
Apparently as you all would, the tabloids have brought back a forth a parade of no's to Mischa on the cover. Schneider in a very crafty way said this in response. "I can assure you that I've been inundated with requests and inquiries from the celebrity weeklies . . . If none of them care, then by all means, please stop calling and e-mailing."
See? He makes it seem like the Post is wrong. They aren't. The tabloids are interested. hell, I am interested and they being responsible journalists are calling and asking him for information and to verify rumors they have heard so of course he has been inundated. Doesn't mean she is going to get a cover. I don't want to be morbid, but even if she had died of an overdose last week she probably wouldn't have got a cover.
