NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Many ladies love their handbags and will spend a lot of money for the latest and greatest, but a new study says what is inside those bags may be covered in germs worse than what you’ll find in the bathroom.
Like most twenty-somethings in America, I sleep with my phone directly next to my pillow to never miss a text ensure my alarm actually wakes me up. I'm usually immune to my email notifications but it was hot as balls in my room last night, so the moment I heard my phone go off, I was up. It was Tyler Shields PR camp with a 3 a.m. response to that ridiculous Birkin burning fiasco. Even when I'm wide awake in the middle of the night, I don't have time for this bullshit.
Like everything else Tyler Shields does, throwing his annoying blonde girlfriend (whose idiocy is perfectly on display in Mrs. Eastwood & Company) next to the fire-drenched red Birkin bag worth $100,000 was just a desperate PR stunt. Of course it outraged hundreds of people, most of whom were more concerned with their blatant disregard for the have-nots. And of course Tyler is still trying to capitalize on his painfully obvious marketing ploy. As he says, if you buy one of his photos, he'll donate $100,000 to a family in need. But only if you buy one of his photos. Of course.
"The Birkin photos are for sale. If somebody were to buy — all right, let’s do this. If somebody wants to buy one of the Birkin photos, I will donate $100,000 — not to a charity — but to a family. I will give one family in need $100,000 cash...I would select somebody who — my father had a stroke when I was 15, and it became very difficult financially for the family, so I think I would do that. I think I would find a family that someone had a stroke or some type of ailment. I think that if somebody had done that for us when that happened to me, it would have been like a miracle. So, I’ll find somebody who that just happened to and I will help them out."
Seriously? SERIOUSLY? Tyler Shields, you are the poor man's Terry Richardson. Give it a rest.
