I <3 Blogs
Page Six went to cover the premiere of Kim Cattrall’s new film, Meet Monica Velour. This is the exchange they had:
She then turned her anger on gossip columns, specifically Page Six, despite our being big fans of hers. “It’ll chew you up and spit you out,” she said, leaning in and adding that being a gossip reporter just isn’t a “respectable job.”
Cattrall asked, “Why don’t you work at — what’s that news agency — Roybers?” When we corrected her, “Reuters,” she conceded, “Yeah, sorry, I’ve been drinking.”
But she didn’t stop there, ranting, “What about writing for a blog? Then you can write about what you want [or] care about.”
The reasons I love Cattrall from this exchange are threefold:
1) She told a gossip reporter, who she knew would write about her, “I’ll chew you up and spit you out.” Badass! Also, I love that phrase! Next to, “I’ll buy and sell you and your family.”
2) She likes to drink. Me too!
3) She thinks blogs are respectable job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Me sort of too(ish)!
POINT BLOGS! I do write about things I want to write about! Like how Kim Cattrall thinks people should write for blogs. That’s exactly what I want to write about!
Anyway, bloggers, we’ve got to get on top of this Cattrall endorsement. I’m thinking she stars in an ad campaign promoting blogs, featuring tasteful nudity and a reference to Mannequin because blogs like stuff like that. The tag line could be, “Tumblr, WordPress, Roybers Oh My!” (Said in the sexy Samantha voice). Maybe not, I’m still ironing out the details. Suggestions welcome.
