When Lena Dunham announced last week that she was quitting Twitter, I knew immediately that something in the milk wasn’t clean. Humans without filters who love saying whatever they’re thinking love Twitter (see: me every time I live tweet a visit to the dermatologist). But it sounds like quitting Twitter might have been the first step in stopping all the random words that fall from her mouth (like comparing the Bill Cosby situation to the Holocaust) as prescribed by her new Bitch, Don’t Say That team, one of which is the real-life version of Olivia Pope from Scandal.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Lena Dunham has hired crisis management expert Judy Smith (real-life Olivia Pope) and publicist Cindi Berger to help her rehab her image after she said and wrote some stuff that made a lot of people nervously tug at their collars last year. Judy recently consulted with Sony after the email hack and Cindi has worked as a publicist for Mimi, Billy Crystal, and Robert Redford. And now they’re working with the girl from Girls who stopped giving a fuck a very long time ago.
I’m all for trying to fix your life, but doesn’t Lena know that if you’re going to hire someone to fix your life, you hire Iyanla Vanzant? I’m sure Olivia Pope and Cindy-with-an-I Berger are very capable and whatever, but Lena is famous, which means she can afford the best in life-fixing.
