Pretty much every blogger (including yours truly) is guilty of the ole bait and switch–throwing up a salacious headline that only tells part of the story in order to get the readers’ attention–but we were particularly struck by the latest barrage of posts focusing on a Hollywood Reporter article that features interview quotes from Rachel Zoe.
Within HR’s article, the reality TV star and celeb stylist is asked if she’d ever take on Snooki as a client (it’s unclear whether or not Snooki’s ever actually reached out to Zoe), and her response is as follows: “I don’t have time… . No really, because she’s so out there right now, that’s like a full-time job. It’s nothing against Snooki.” It’s a reasonable and respectful answer, right? In fact, it’s actually quite a compliment to Snooki for such a well-known person in the fashion industry to consider her a big-time project.
So why does every headline across the blogosphere imply (or flat out say) that “Rachel Zoe Refuses to Style Snooki“, or that “Rachel Zoe Won’t Style Snooki, No Matter How Much She Pays Her“? Surriously? C’mon guys, stop trying to stir up drama–Snooki’s already got her hands full with this Ne-Yo Twitter feud!
