Misadventures in Journalism - A Princess For President
As a journalist working in L.A., you're bound to get your share of interesting/ridiculous phone calls. (One P.R. agent, for example, recently tried to get me to run a picture of Lindsay Lohan on her way to rehab because the actress wore a particular brand of designer hats in the picture that they were trying to promote.)
Few, however, were as strange as the call I got yesterday.
A female with a strange muffled voice asked if I wanted an exclusive interview Wednesday with a Presidential candidate. I thought it odd that Obama, McCain or even Mitt Romney would be the ones asking the press for an interview – so I inquired about who the candidate was.
Her name is a mouthful – Christina Gerasimos Billings-Elias and she lives in West Hollywood.
