Evidently no one is interested in a fully clothed Lindsay Lohan

Was Lindsay Lohan dropped from the Jill Stuart ad campaign and if so, why?

"Has Lohan hurt her ability to land high-profile endorsement deals with her tabloid antics...and her immodest New York pictorial? Not necessarily, but it hasn't helped either, says Trey Laird, whose creative firm, Laird + Partners, has cast numerous top stars in its campaigns. 'I think the thing that would really enhance her viability for campaigns is a great, well-received movie,' says Laird. 'At the end of the day, the special campaign option will go to people who project continued success, confidence and authenticity, and that is a lot she has been missing.'"

Success, confidence and authenticity. That's pretty interesting. I just want to do a quick inventory of beauty-category-endorsing famous women and see if they match up with that criteria.

Drew Barrymore (CoverGirl): OK, sure.
Beyonce (L'Oreal): Yes. Definitely. Gawd!
Queen Latifah (CoverGirl): Yes. Even though.
Kate Moss (Calvin Klein): Somehow yeah?
Sarah Jessica Parker (Garnier): I'd vote no because her husband creeps me out and because I hated 'Sex & The City.' I realize I'm alone in these opinions.
Paris Hilton (Parlux fragrance): [Shrug. Blank stare.]

OK. Now I'm just confused. Maybe, for whatever reasons, some people are scandal-proof. Maybe ex-Disney kid stars aren't. Something the Jonas Brothers might want to consider about now.

Every time I read you, I love you more and more.

HATE HATE HATE HATE Sex and the City. HATE IT.

Also, SJP is so skeevy, I've hated her since Square Pegs. She's just not right.

Also Drew Barrymore - ugh. Not funny. Not cute. Not sweet.

Sorry for the bile!

Bile is always perfectly OK here.

For the life of me, I never understood what was supposed to be clever or empowering about S&TC.

I'm neutral on Drew Barrymore. I don't rush out to see her movies and in fact I confuse a lot of Barrymore's movies with Kate Hudson's. But I do admire how she's rehabbed her image and I admire that she's carved out this successful rom-com niche for herself.

But I can't believe I forgot to mention Diane Keaton. I'd say she's authentic, right? She said the f word right there on a morning news show, right there in front of Diane Sawyer and that's pretty confident, isn't it?

I just came for the not fully clothed Linds... wait, she’s fully clothed? Why am I here then. I know, it’s the shared hatred of SITC.

I can’t even bring myself to spell it out I hate it so much.

Ha! The movie may fail after all!
