You don't have to know all the consequences to know that there are consequences--or--I think Nicole Ritchie is the new Twiggy

The older I get, the less I get things. Is it just me, or is this woman a caricature of something, perhaps herself?

I think I am a fading dinosaur.

Those are SERIOUS eyebrows. I wonder if they weigh more than Nicole Richie?

Because there should be consequences for that.

I watched this when you had the last link to her tea diatribe - And I LOVE her - she is so, so - Feh-abulous!

Stunningly bright red strawberries, indeed!

When I worked in a book warehouse maintaining the racks and pallets containing the bestsellers, I found an odd sense of satisfaction when the time came to replace Ms. Powter's Stop The Insanity with this lovely volume...

Who IS this nutjob? I need to get out more (or not...).

Chrissy said...

when the heck did she grow her hair out? she's scary looking.

Erin O'Brien said...

Dean and Badge---it's Susan Powter. She had a big "Stop the Insanity" informercial years ago. As I recall, it was one of the first. The predictable 15 minutes ensued, then scandal, then blah blah blah.

This youtube cracks me up, tho.

Holy cleavage batman, she eats everythting.....

Bill said...

I remember her bald and thought she was very sexy. I think she's going for a little bit of the sexy with the aggressive pear eating. She should do a whole series of fruit eating on youtube. I'm eating a tomato right now.

Stop the Insanity! (good sound bite, and, oh yeah, bite me!)

Susan Powter is one of the few Really Scary Peepul out there. Good gawd...

(say, any fun stuff to do in Cleveland?)

Scary indeed.

Ellisson and Al: I don't see scary there. As a matter of fact, I would like someone to buy me a private training session with the Powter. I could get into eating some pears and peaches and stuff.

Dang it all ,Erin, 3 minutes and fourteen seconds of my life I'll never get back. Fortunately my new $1.00 CD of U2 is booming out in the shop, so this was not as excruciating as it should of been. Erin often unearths things I would not normally see, and rightly so. Excacerbated often by bits like the phone cam roundup and that pole dancer from Australia.

Powter reminds me I caught about 10 minutes on surf-by of this "reality" thing called "Bachelorette". I think it can used by the criminal justice system in place of incarceration for any male with a sack. Just wire their eyes open, Clockwork Orange style, and make'em watch an endless loop of self-absorbed dorks fawning after a vapid ho. "Make it stop, occifer, I promise I won't steal cars no more, honest."

Elisson; Waterloo Arts Fest is today. I'm not going, workin, cuz I'm lame.

Bill said...

I would rather re watch 10 of Erin's phone cam round ups than watch 10 minutes of bachelorette any day! The mind of Erin!

philbilly said...

Check that, Bill.

I have no idea what "excacerbated" even means, but I meant to say "ameliorated often by". Strokin out in the heat a little, I'd wager.

Phone cam roundup is cultural anthropology at its best.

Restart the insanity! She's baaaack...

Amanda said...

I remember watching her healthy eating videos in health class freshman year of high school... it was just as awkward then as it is now.

I can't wait to just tell someone to eat an organic pear.

Bill said...

It's not a pear and it's not powter but it's nice. http://bit.ly/dgwNIZ

i will eat an organic pear right after i finish this bologna with miracle whip on wonder bread...
