Now that Tiger Woods’ idiotic escapades have been flushed onto the world stage, a sort of sports circus clown circle is almost complete. The PGA has always represented professionalism and what has been know always as a “gentleman’s sport” virtually flawlessly. Now, even though Jack Nicklaus and other classy gold legends are being prodded to cut Tiger some slack, golf stands as another pinnacle of athletic endeavor dragged into the ring by clowns. This, today, is the state of sports public relations. Ric Flair and Professional Wrestling Ric Flair has held various professional wrestling titles including 1981–1986 NWA Champion, which...

Dolph Lundgren

Dolph Lundgren has been officially appointed as "Ambassador for Marbella" by the Town hall on Tuesday, Spanish News reports. Lundgren thus becomes the second Marbella Ambassador, after Alejandro Blanco, the President of the Spanish Olympic Committee. A great PR boost for the actor who is best known for his role in Rocky IV in 1985 as the imposing Russian boxer Ivan Drago. Lundgren is loved by his Spanish fans, who are proud to have him living amongst them. The Mayor of Marbella, Angeles Muñoz, stated that it was "an authentic privilege to have neighbors as distinguished as Dolph, who could... Read More >

Roman Polanski

After being set to be released on bail from a 2-month stay at a Swiss prison, the extradited Roman Polanski has reportedly been banned from poking other users on Facebook. Arrested for a 1976 sex case in L.A., Polanski is fearful of returning to the states. And considering the nature of his alleged crime, certain precautions are being taken towards controlling his actions while free on bail. Ruled by the Swiss courts, the limitations on Polanski's online social networking behavior seem bias and unnecessary. But will such measures be taken in future sex cases? In addition to the Facebook poking... Read More >

Demi Moore Photoshop PR Stunt

2009-11-19 by EPR Staff

Demi Moore, the actress more famous (recently) for her involvement in Twitter and her marriage with Kutcher, lives a Photoshop nightmare apparently. The actress appears on the cover of W in a very unnatural pose, reportedly the sloppiest Photoshop work ever. If you look at Moore's picture, you notice that the artist chopped off part of her left thigh, leaving an unnatural gap instead of a roundly shape. Sure, Moore appears unhealthily thin, but she is not a mutant yet. I find it hard to believe that this is a "honest" mistake. Magazine covers go through a very careful scrutiny... Read More >

2009-11-17 by EPR Staff

Sharon Stone attended the Elton John Aids Benefit the other day, looking a little worse for the wear. After posing for Paris Match topless earlier this year, the 51 year old star evidently decided to take a new direction for this event. The result was simply not very appealing. Stone, wearing perhaps the worst outfit this writer has seen her in, also appeared to have had makeup issues. Some the photos coming out of the event show stone looking haggard and with lipstick issues as well. Sharon has had an up and down career, and up and down love life,... Read More >

2009-11-11 by EPR Staff

Corri Fetman, the Chicago divorce lawyer who sued Playboy for an alleged sexual harassment, is now being sued in turn by the magazine. Fetman, noted for a racy billboard promoting divorce, appears to be fully qualified to stir up trouble if nothing else. This one has bad PR written all over it for both Playboy and Fetman Garland & Associates, the firm she is a partner in. According to Playboy, Fetman is trying to steal the phrase "Lawyer of Love" supposedly coined in an advice column she wrote for Playboy's website. Fetman also bared all for Playboy on top of...

There are a number of celebrities who have suffered from breast cancer and lived to tell the tale. You've probably heard about a few of them, but the media seems to be more focused on who went on a drinking binge this last weekend or who is in rehab for drug addiction, rather than focusing on diseases that many of us may face someday. Is being sick bad PR? What makes a coke addiction better news than a young actress suffering from breast cancer? First, a look at the celebrities that have overcome this disease.

Madonna Delivers PR Gift to Lady Gaga on SNL

In a staged appearance on Saturday Night Live, Madonna attacked Gaga in a Deep House Dish musical skit with Kenan Thompson and Andy Samberg. Some found it funny, but the whole deal reminded me of Diana Falzones's editorial on The Huffington Post - The Lost Art of Being a Lady. Madonna, who is already known for her hot temper, delivered Gaga a beautifully wrapped PR gift when she "interrupted" her performance, starting to pull Gaga's wig and yelling "What the hell is a disco stick?" This girls gone wildperformance is what can be seen as the essence of today's pop... Read More >
