MICHAEL PHELPS AND CARRIE PREJEAN

Radaronline.com is reporting that Miss USA runner up Carrie Prejean has been secretly dating Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps. The current Miss California made news earlier this week with her answer on gay marriage during the Miss USA pageant.

 

DID PEREZ HILTON JUST HAVE THE BIGGEST WEEKEND OF ANY BLOGGER IN HISTORY?

Meanwhile, blogger Perez Hilton, Prejeans nemisis who apparently cost her the beauty queen title, apparently had quite a busy weekend in Las Vegas. Besides destroying Prejeans Miss USA title chances, Hilton apparently got into a spat with Criss Angel which may now cost the magician HIS job. The incident happened during Angel’s live Vegas show. The dust up was so bad that Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Norm Clarke is now calling for Angel’s show to be cancelled.

The Luxor claims it’s just a coincidence, but the Criss Angel promotional wrap surrounding the hotel and casino was just removed.

KELLOGG SUFFERING A WORSE P.R. HIT FROM FIRING PHELPS THAN KILLING ITS CUSTOMERS

February 25, 2009

MICHAEL PHELPS’ REPUTATION IS STILL SMOKIN’-KELLOGG, NOT SO MUCH

The Kellogg company can’t win. They were the only major corporation who dropped Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps after a photograph turned up of him smoking marijuana from a bong. Now, the company is paying a HUGE price for firing Phelps.

The Vanno Company actually monitors major corporations on an ongoing basis to determine their popularity. Here’s a graph of their recent findings about Kellogg:

 

Without going into a ton of detail, most consumers have come to the following conclusion:

MICHAEL PHELPS AND BONG: GOOD

EVIL CEREAL COMPANY: BAD

Before firing Michael Phelps, Kellogg was the 9th most popular corporation in America. After firing Michael Phelps, Kellogg is the 83rd most popular company. Kellogg actually suffered a worse P.R. hit from firing Phelps than they did by killing some of their customers with tainted peanut butter.

MICHAEL PHELPS

Olympic champion Michael Phelps has pulled out of a lucrative Las Vegas appearance as he tries to lay low and his handlers seek to protect the swimmer’s public image.

Celebrity columnist Robin Leach is reporting on his blog that Phelps skipped out of a high-paying meet and greet/speaking engagement for IBM executives scheduled at the MGM casino. Magic Johnson filled in for Phelps who reportedly cancelled at the last minute.

Leach writes that Phelps’ marketing team is trying to keep him away from “anything deemed Vegas.”

STONERS OF THE WORLD UNITE: CALL FOR KELLOGG BOYCOTT OVER PHELPS FIRING

February 11, 2009

 

When the Kellogg Corporation decided to drop Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, after photos surfaced of him smoking marijuana from a bong recently, they probably had no idea they were antagonizing one of their company’s key demographics-potheads who get the munchies.

The Marijuana Policy Project is one of several pro-marijuana groups that has called for a boycott of Kellogg since they dropped their sponsorship of Phelps. After Phelps was photographed smoking weed, a Kellogg spokesperson said Phelps’ behavior was “not consistent with the image of Kellogg.” The company basically fired Phelps as a spokesman.

Pro-marijuana groups were outraged. The executive director of the Marijuana Policy Project said,

 

 

“To drop him for choosing to relax with a substance that’s safer than beer is an outrage. Kellogg’s had no problem signing up Phelps when he had a conviction for drunk driving, an illegal act that could actually have killed someone.”

 

 

 

Other pro-marijuana groups like Students for Sensible Drug Policy, NORML and the Drug Policy Alliance have also called for their members to boycott Kellogg.

In an online poll by Fox Sports, 62% of people responding sided with Marijuana advocay groups over Kellogg when asked “Whose side are you on?”
