Tallulah Belle Willis Is A Guest Of Harper's Bazaar


I will say this for Harper's Bazaar. They have a great legal team and some wonderful PR people. Last week the NY Post reported that Tallulah Belle Willis had been given an internship at Harper's. Well that got everyone all in a panic. Why? Well it turns out that Tallulah is only 15 and so it would have violated labor laws. It is one thing to do a favor for Bruce and Demi and Ashton and entirely another to hear the words labor violation.

So, over the course of the next few days, the company found a loophole. Think of it as a permanent take your daughter to work kind of loophole. It turns out that Tallulah isn't an intern. No. Tallulah is a guest of Harper's. "Tallulah is a guest of Harper’s Bazaar, shadowing our editors for a couple of weeks.”

For a few weeks? How are we defining a few? I love this new program. There won't be any more child labor violations anywhere in the world. You know those 12 year old kids making your clothes in some foreign country. It isn't child labor. No. They are guests of the company. They just happen to be guests 12 hours a day 6 days a week. And as guests, they want to contribute to their hosts and the best way for them to do that is by sewing clothes for people.

Oy vay. Talie's as fugly as Rumer. No can someone please tell me who the biological father is supposed to be... Jay Leno or Bruce?

Just like when we say someone is a "guest of the state" when they reside in a correctional facility. Same same.

KellyLynn said...

Does that mean the Gosselin children aren't acting, but are merely shadowing their parents?

Pookie said...

but enty, you of all people know that finding the loophole is what it's all about. doesn't make it right, but it's what it's all about nonetheless.

you know those old scrapbooks with sort of cartoonish pictures of people and you pasted a head on them? tallulah looks like that in every picture i see.
it's like her head is on her chest and she has no neck, or like she's a hunchback or something.

very odd and very unnerving.

genetics triumph plastic surgery all of the time. she still has a few more years and maybe there is a swan underneath.

I don't know whether to be more disgusted by this spin on words to avoid labour violations or the fur that she's wearing.

That better be faux fur on that fugly little girl.

And I always thought she was the cute one. Hey, at least the kid is doing something this summer. It beats laying around watch daytime TV and texting her friends.

I disagree. Tallulah looks much better than Rumor.

Rumor has got to be the oddest looking child I've seen in a long time.

Someone said that Scout is attractive. I haven't seen a picture but somehow I'm not holding my breath that Demi and Bruce have an attractive child.

Judi said...

Yeah, it's faux. At 15, she's not done cookin'. I'll reserve judgement until 2017.

MommaBear said...

Shouldn't this kid be in school? All the interships in the world won't make up for a decent education! Learning how to read and write is you ticket to a successful future kids, not 'interning' at 15. Her parents are morons.

Intellectual cover. 15 is old enough to work the kind of job Tallulah is going to have at Harper's. Not as if she's going to be handling hazardous
materials.

My only questions are salary related. She doesn't need the money, in theory anyway, but it's always nice to get a paycheck even if it doesn't cover your valet bills. Is Demi getting "paid" by Harper's for an interview and Demi is increasing Tallulah's allowance or is Tallulah doing this for free?

The interns where I work (also in publishing) earn the equivalent of $35,000/year. They're the kids of well-connected, wealthy families, and they're always excited when they get paid. Makes them feel like they're contributing. I think it's human nature to want to make a difference.

She looks exactly like her father.

Just checked IMDB this is the best looking child Demi and Bruce had together.

Here's praying that she turns out to be a beauty.

Let's hope Harpers teaches her a better sense of style. Cause that fur is fugly with a capital FUG.

ahdaboom said...

she's unusual looking, that's for sure. but i wouldn't call her ugly. her sister OWNS ugly. blech, i can't stand to even look at that girl.

nunaurbiz said...

Momma Bear, dunno where you are but where I am it's summer and school is out. Lots of kids have summer jobs. What's all the fuss about? It's an internship!

Ayesha said...

Hey, I've been working since I was 11. (I still can't believe that people trusted an 11 year old to babysit. That was back in the day, though...)

Scout would be cute if she didn't have frowny-brows.

I've always thought she's the best looking of the Willis girls.

Clicked on the pic to get a better view. Beautiful eyes on the girl. She looks really nice, too.
