Subject: One of My Favorite Entertainment Correspondents
To: lisa.bernhard@foxnews.com
Hi Lisa:
You've become one of my favorite entertainment correspondents. Aside from Bill McCuddy and Brooke Anderson, I gave-up on watching entertainment NEWS.
However, I dig you. I dig your presence and your delivery.
It's like sitting down and talking w/ a friend.
Most entertainment correspondents and anchors of entertainment NEWS shows are products of what the corporate executives think we want to see or need to see. Fortunately, I can look beyond that as since I was a kid I have met allot of famous politicians, doctors, lawyers, authors, critics, economists, professors, actors, musicians, artists, rockstars, hockey players, football players, baseball players, etc..
And, I realize now more than ever, for the most part, these people are just people.
Some of them want to be perceived as inaccessible and unattainable and allot of entrainment oriented product likes this image as well and even give the entertainment correspondents and anchors of entertainment NEWS shows who report on these "stars" an inaccessible and unattainable image as well. But, in short, people are people and I fortunately see beyond the cheesy facade that's supposed to intimidate me, impress me, and depress me by thinking my life is shit compared to these "stars" and so I should worship and become obsessed and want to know everything about these people via entertainment product.
Well, just as I prefer Owen & Luke Wilson & Jack Black over Jim Carey; and Tobey over Leo; and Johnny Depp over Tom Cruise; and Matthew McConaughey over Ben Affleck; and Lindsay Lohan over Katie Holmes; and Kate Hudson over Gweneth Paltrow (yeah, Gavin = please); and, of course, the great Parker Posey over Nicole Kidman = well, I prefer you over the majority of entertainment correspondents and anchors of entertainment NEWS shows. I do like Jill that's on F&F from Star too.
But my point is that I like more organic, humble, modest and cool, down-to-earth professionals like you. (Who I also think is hot). Yeah, someone I would sit down and chat with = really shoot the shot until dawn.
Best of the Roses,
