Flirting with Over The Top Promotion

Dear Heather Locklear,

Since the commercial for your up and coming TV movie, Flirting with 40, seems to be inescapable at the moment (seriously? why are they advertising Lifetime movies on non-Lifetime channels?!?! multiple times an hour?!?!), I feel it is necessary to point out a few things:

1. Terry McMillan already did this story... and then made it into a movie. But the "been there, done that" factor is probably not your fault.
2. I'm not sure what's going on with your face in this particular movie, but it is possible you are overdoing the cosmetic/plastic surgery/restylane injections or something. Or... have you been stung by a bee all over your face? Your face is starting to not look like your face. Please stop whatever it is you're doing. You're beautiful, even if you get wrinkles.
3. We were totally Team Locklear in that whole Denise Richards fiasco. Totally. We're anti-Richards all the way. So, this note isn't a slam on you. You've been fab in our books for a while, and we're hoping that the whole DUI thing is all a huge misunderstanding (even though it doesn't sound like it will).

So, thanks for listening. Also, kudos on the co-star in that movie. He's almost as hot as the Farm Boy. ;-)

p.s. Since I began writing this post, that commercial has aired AGAIN. And AGAIN. I hope you get a check every time it airs. SOMEONE has to benefit from that many commercials, and I'm sure it's not me.

I like your new header!

And I agree that Lifetime movies? Should be advertised on Lifetime only.

And Stella got her Groove back- can Heather?

Lovely header - picture you took?

Plastic surgery is taking away all the beautiful women to turn them into these clones of silicone... sad.

Thanks to you both about the header photo! Yes, I took that photo in a local park a couple of years ago.

@jen- not sure if Heather can get her groove back. Hope so, though!

@Stinkypaw- agreed. I'm tired of the wax faces. Bring on the wrinkled women! ;-)
