I’ve finally started doing the revisions on Faking It. One of the things the bow-tied one wants is for my celebrity diva, Kari Hale, to say more stupid things. Believe it or not, it’s actually hard to come up with stupid dialogue so I googled some real celebrity quotes for inspiration.
Here are a list of my favorites as reported by other blogs: (And we all know you can’t get more reliable news from random celebrity bloggers)
Brooke Shields – “Smoking kills. If you’re killed, you’ve lost a very important part of your life.” (Glad to see that tuition to Princeton wasn’t wasted.)
Britney Spears – “I get to go to lots of overseas places, like Canada.” (Well, some people consider Lake Superior a sea . . .)
Christina Aguilera – “So, where’s the Cannes Film Festival being held this year?” (I think they keep the location the same every year so blond celebrities can find it.)
Mariah Carey – “Whenever I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can’t help but cry. I mean I’d love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and stuff.” (Mariah has obviously been talking to Brooke about death.)
Pretty bad, eh? Personally I think the politicians are worse.
“Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country.” – Marion Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC. (I’ll stay in Arizona, thanks.)
“I haven’t committed a crime. What I did was fail to comply with the law.”
– David Dinkins, New York City Mayor, answering accusations that he failed to pay his taxes. (And the thing is, I bet he paid his publicist a lot of money to come up with that answer.)
“I’m not going to have some reporters pawing through our papers. We are the president.” – Hillary Clinton commenting on the release of subpoenaed documents. (Come to think of it, my editor uses the royal ‘we’ too . . . coincidence?)
And even after all of that, I still can’t think of a stupid line for my character. It’s something she should say in a library to a guy she’s trying to pick up. Any of you with celebrity or political aspirations–comment away!
And for those of you attending the LDStorymakers conference this weekend–see you soon!
