All right, I’m about to share with you a little trade secret: The formula to decide who I do and do not write about. It is rather mathematical, so get ready for numbers and variables:
X = [(Fame/100) + (Blog Appearances/10) + (Lulz/100) + (Desperation for a post over/10)] / 2
Basically, if X is greater than or equal to one, a post will be written. As you can see, if someone isn’t really famous, the amount of lulz that can be extracted from the story, the number of blogs the story is running on or my desperation to find one more post to write about can outweigh the fact that they’re useless nobodies. Which is why I’m making a post about Lost actor Doug Hutchison and his mail-order Russian herp-bride-looking thing, the 16-year-old Courtney Stodden, and how they’re demanding $3 million per interview.

Subject: Radio Tour Request for Courtney
Doug, Krista, Courtney,
My name is Jeremy Baumhower and I am the executive producer of Mass Media Prep, which consists of 660 radio morning shows across the country. We would LOVE to get Courtney, or any combination of you three for a radio tour. A tour is back to back interviews via the phone with the biggest shows in the country. We would ask for 2-3 hours and you would be in front of 10 to 20M people. We would make every show play Courtney’s music and you can promote anything you wish. Please call me when you get this email. Congratulations on your wedding!!
Mass Media Prep

it would be numerous radio shows at 8-9 minutes a hit.. I would love to pay that amount but we do not have any funds. Really trying to help her music career is what my thought was ..

I understand. Thought we could help Courtney’s career by putting her music first. If you have a change of heart… please do not hesitate to call or email.
Oh, thank God for these two. Now that Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are broke nobodies who can no longer afford to be annoying famewhores, I really needed to fill the void of “creepy vaguely pedophilic man and useless herp-infested fuckdoll who should not have gotten married but did anyway,” and holy shit, have they delivered! And the best part is, they have even LESS self-awareness than the original model! Seriously, between Doug’s flat-out refusal to admit that marrying a sixteen-year-old who looks like a burn-victim-turned-stripper is creepy as hell, and Courtney’s constantly looking like she’s having an orgasm and taking a giant shit at the same time, it’s like Christmas and my birthday and Hanukkah all at the same time, and I LOVE IT.
