In other EA news, Vanity Fair recently had a sit-down with her, and the interviewer/writer George Wayne made himself look like a low-brow freak show by asking questions such as:
I understand. You have been a victim of cyber-perversity — and, most impressive of all, you have rebounded in astounding fashion. Is there anything you would wish upon that man, Michael Barrett, who filmed you naked last year?
I am not going to answer that. The only thing that I would like to do is make sure people do not make a mockery of stalking and stalking victims.
I’m sure you have toned perfectly, too, with all that dancing. But what gets me to the vomitorium is that faux romance between you and that cheesy ballroom-dancing partner of yours. What was with this tabloid fake romance?
Do you know him?
I don’t need to know him to find him cheesy, honey.
Well, all I know is he was a wonderful dance partner and a wonderful human being who looked out for me, who would call me each night after practice to see if I was O.K.
What is the one thing you take when feeling constipated?
Andrews: “Are you really going to write about that? I’m not going to comment on that. That is kind of weird and I don’t feel comfortable answering that question. I have gone through so much in the last year.”
Yeah, I had the same reaction- what a freakazoid! But I guess he’s following the Paris Hilton school of any publicity by any means necessary is somehow deemed good publicity. I’m an old fashioned guy- I think you should only make headlines when you accomplish something.
