Am I Old and Out Of Touch?

I really don’t get it.  Maybe my readers can explain it to me.

Why do companies go on the radio equivalent of the Jerry Springer show? Is it good marketing to go on Stern or Bubba and have your girls treated like “dumb whores”?  Is this entertaining and does this audience convert into sales for you?

I have done a lot of talk radio, some of the largest nationally syndicated shows on the air like Neal Boortz, Bill Cunningham, and lots of local stations.  I have taken girls on the shows and we have always been treated with respect and we always have a good time and we always get asked to come back. But I have flatly refused to do certain shows, even when they offered to pay me, Jerry Springer and  Maury Povich  to name two. I flatly refused because that is not how I want to portray myself and because I don’t see where that audience would result in sales for me and even if it did I have more self respect than to allow myself to be treated that way…for any amount of money.

I look at Stormy Daniels and I see someone who presents herself as a class act, when she does a radio show she isn’t treated like a dumb whore.  Maybe thats why she does Martin Bashir and Bree Olson does Bubba. Maybe Bubba means more exposure than Martin Bashir and maybe that exposure is worth whatever it costs image wise I really don’t understand this, so if you can explain it please do.

Everything I saw in the pictures and video told me that Bree should have expected this, from the way she was dressed to the way she behaved, and if this is what you expected and wanted why melt down over it?

Or maybe it was all just an act…..

  1. My wife has been invited to be on a few tv day time talk shows over the years. Because we dont want her to be treated as a punchline for a joke.We have declined each and everytime.

  2. Thanks Tony Im glad I’m not alone in this business when I think that dignity actually means something, and that just because we have sex on camera doesn’t mean we haven’t any dignity

  3. Personally i don’t think there’s anything wrong with porn stars going on those shows. It’s publicity as far as I’m concerned. But I have no sympathy for her claiming ignorance about the show. She should have known. I’m sure even someone a little more mature and classy like Ms Daniels would get the same treatment from someone like Howard Stern. The difference is how Daniels would play the game. Some people just know how to play the game no matter what arena they’re in. But I could be wrong about about Daniels too since i don’t know if she’s ever been on Stern’s show.

    I remember Shaq commenting during the All-Star break regarding his spat with Kobe. He said “it was all marketing.” When celebrities say sh*t like that then I suspect *EVERY* story about them I read is a publicity stunt. If this was a stunt then it worked because it warranted two posts from Mike. If she really was offended then she needs to be better informed of what type of show she’s getting into next time. Do a little homework. You can’t go on the Colbert Show not knowing the guy is playing a douchbag and expect to get Jon
    Stewart type questions. You gotta know who you’re up against. Does that mean you shouldn’t go on those shows? Again personally I don’t think so because you reach more people that may/may not have heard of you. Your job as the guest/interviewee is to come away from the show earning the respect of the host/listeners. Bree Olsen failed in that aspect.

    In my opinion.

  4. Reminds me of the old saying, ‘you teach people how to treat you’.

    Until these women stop acting like “dumb whores” and until they stop seeing THEMSELVES as “dumb whores,” they’re going to continue to be treated like them.

  5. here’s more evidence to back up my assertion re: marketing gimmick

    this is rnc chair michael steele talking about the rush limbaugh *blow-up*:

    “I’m very introspective about things. I’m a cause-and-effect kind of guy. So if I do something, there’s a reason for it… It may look like a mistake, a gaffe. There is a rationale, there is a logic behind it,” he said. “I want to see what the landscape looks like. I want to see who yells the loudest. I want to know who says they’re with me but really isn’t.”

    he’s a liar. but now there’s no way to prove it. is there any chance limbaugh would play along? absolutely. any chance someone like bubba would help olsen stage a gimmick like this? sure. either way both olsen ,bubba, steele and limbaugh win and i became more cynical of celebrities/politicians.
