I don’t often write about celebrities (I think I’ve said that every time I’ve written about a celebrity), but sometimes you just have to take notice of something good in the news. Okay, it’s not exactly news, but its the first I’ve heard of it, so it was news to me. Maybe it will be news to you.
Eva Longoria has been named to PETA “Worst Dressed Celebrities of 2008” list. This is apparently for comments she made back in 2006 on The Oprah Winfrey Show. “I can skin a deer and a pig and a snake – and rabbits.” She was referring to childhood hunting trips with her dad. Way to go, Eva!
Anyone on the PETA naughty list, is automatically on my nice list. And if you are on their list, they don’t just complain about what you wear. They are just plain nasty. About Eva, they said, “In her trashy furs, she looks like the street walker of Wisteria Lane.” This is admittedly nicer than they were about Aretha Franklin, “Aretha, when you waddled into the Grammys in yet another vulgar fur, you looked as if you were going to perform ‘I Am the Walrus’ by The Beatles.”
I mean, that would be like saying that PETA has to use air-headed models to get naked for their cause, because otherwise no one would pay attention to a bunch of bleating socialists in comfortable shoes.
