Can We Throw One Back?

Or how I wish coming out was like fishing.

Ms. O'Day and her girls.
Ms. O'Day and her girls.

Aubrey O'Day, best known as the skanky former Danity Kane member that got a bit too much personal press for Diddy's taste, just came out. Well, that's what Fox News would have us to believe. Maybe it is a publicity stunt?

I wouldn't put it past her. Generally, I am not a hater, but something about this girl just gets up under my skin like a thousand cockroaches in sandpaper jackets. I also find it fishy that Fox News is the only major news outlet who finds this newsworthy.

Really, with the Prop 8 travesty and me going home for the holidays soon, this just seems like bad timing. The last thing we (or I for that matter) need is a celebrity spokesperson and holiday conversation-starter, the likes of Aubrey O'Day.
