Publicity Terrible Tale #10: Auto Snob

From a publicist:
I had an author, “a former Oprah regular,” who wanted to “approve” the types of cars that author escorts were going to drive him around in because he didn’t want to have to get into an “old, dirty Honda.”

P.S. He ended up canceling the tour. [Quelle surprise!]

I spent one day as a fill-in on a media tour with escort in Cleveland, driving around in her average car. I was just thrilled to have the escort -- not having to figure out how to get from one place to another, local knowledge about the different shows I was to be interviewed on. The guy in this story was welcome to hire a limo -- the escort doesn't have to drive.
