This morning, on the way to work, we listened to an interview with Simon Cowell’s girlfriend. I know her name, but they basically introduced her as “Simon Cowell’s Girlfriend.”
Anyway, she was saying that on Extra (a show where she is a correspondant), they’ll be having an “exclusive interview” with Paula Abdul. In the “exclusive interview” Ms. Abdul will be talking about her new jewelry line. Apparently she’s been designing pieces for each of the American Idol contestants.
Which made me think…..
Is there ever enough money?
Why is it that every celebrity has to launch at least a handful of product lines?
Isn’t it enough to be super-rich? Is there a time when one looks at their bank account and says “Well, I’ve got tens of millions of dollars. Perhaps I do not need to whore myself out to the highest bidder to make a couple more.”
I said this to Kristina, and she said “Maybe they’re just bored.”
Point taken, but if you’re bored, why not do something with your time that isn’t focused on the dollar? I don’t think everything needs to result in cash.
Back to the “exclusive interview” about the jewelry line. Isn’t that really just a commercial? I am willing to give Simon Cowell’s girlfriend an exclusive interview to talk about TellHimFred and LawFirmBlogging.
So onto the line.
A glimpse of Paula’s official web site shows you that she’s hawking more than just jewelry.
The Paula Abdul MP3 Player.
From the site:
The Klegg Mini plays hours of digital music with extraordinary sound quality! With the Klegg Mini Color Display MP3 player, view your favorite photo collection in an MP3 player and share the memories with your loved ones. This stylish and feature rich device will make you want to take it everywhere! And it fits on a key chain!PRICE HAS BEEN REDUCED.
Awesome. I like sharing my memories with loved ones (as well as complete internet strangers of course). Maybe this product is for me.
I also have keys. One of my biggest annoyances is that I have all these keys in my pocket, and nothing to hold them together. And there are many times when I think my keys would benefit from a catchy pop song.
And what’s this? The price has been reduced? I am there.
The Jewelry Line.
It’s coming soon to QVC. Unfortunately I can’t see what it looks like, but boy am I excited. If it’s good enough for MC Skat Kat, it is good enough for me.
The Cheerleader Workout Tape.

Unfortunately, there are no photos of paula in either of the outfits. Must be coming soon.
Keep chasing that dollar Paula. You’re only one paycheck away from being, uh, well, still a multimillionaire.
