New Colloquialism? Driving, Talking on Cell Phone = 'Pulling a Shriver'
TMZ caught pop-singer Brandy yesterday illegally using her cell phone while driving. And then they called it pulling a Shriver, thanks to Califonia's First Lady who last week was caught a number of times breaking the law her hubby signed into law. Shriver apologized, but this may be her legacy, at least in pop culture. We'll see if this phrase actually catches on (Maria should truly be noted for her work on The Women's Conference).
Brandy continues to have car issues. This is her yesterday in L.A. -- illegally talking on a handheld cell phone while driving -- nearly three years after causing a fatal car crash on an L.A. Freeway.
