Brooke Shields: My painful loss

brookesheilds2 Brooke Shields: My painful lossBrooke Shields recently discussed with People Magazine the grief over the death of her pet dog Darla. Canine Darla died a full two months ago.

Brooke is still “reeling from the loss” and adds “the void that Darla left is immense, and won’t be filled with a new pet anytime soon.”

For anyone wondering why Brooke is sharing so publicly, the answer lies in paragraph six.  Battered by her loss, Shields and her family are content only with “seeing animals from afar…. like Brooke’s new furry costar: a horse in her new film The Greening of Whitney Brown.”

Darla is no doubt turning in her doggie grave…

The PR Verdict:  “A” for Brooke and her PR machine.

Wow this is cynical PR! We’re reluctant to give such a high grade but as far as PR goes – this takes chutzpah. Connect a seemingly unrelated event and use it as a talking point for your new movie?  As for deceased Darla – is she getting a cut of the movie’s proceeds, wherever she is?

What is Your PR Verdict?

  1. I cannot speak to the public relations implications, but I am a great believer in the afterlife of our canine companions. In that respect, I differ from not only most modern theologians but also Mark Twain, who had the following advice for those at the Pearly Gates.

    “Upon arrival do not speak to St. Peter until spoken to. It is not your place to begin. Do not begin any remark with “Say.” When applying for a ticket avoid trying to make conversation. If you must talk let the weather alone. St. Peter cares not a damn for the weather. And don’t ask him what time the 4:30 train goes; there aren’t any trains in heaven, except through trains, and the less information you get about them the better for you. You can ask him for his autograph — there is no harm in that — but be careful and don’t remark that it is one of the penalties of greatness. He has heard that before. Don’t try to kodak him. Hell is full of people who have made that mistake. Leave your dog outside. Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit you would stay out and the dog would go in. You will be wanting to slip down at night and smuggle water to those poor little chaps (the infant damned), but don’t you try it. You would be caught, and nobody in heaven would respect you after that.”

  2. What I love most about this post is that you used the word kerning. P.S. The girl with her head on the table is prttey much how I felt after seeing the movie Endless Love, one more in a string of Brooke Shield nude flicks before becoming Kathy Griffin’s bitch in Suddenly Susan.P.P.S. Isn’t Suddenly Susan an awesome exclamation? Like Jesus Christ. Suddenly Susan!
