What is it about former Hooter's girls that makes them so entrepreneurial? It must be something that they learn in training, because from Holly Madison to Samantha Burke the list of hot-wings-and-cheap-lager-slingers turned media moguls keeps growing.
Samantha Burke, the aspiring model who is now Jude Law's new baby's mama, will be receiving nearly $10K a month in child support from the actor, whom, rumors suggest, "assumed" she was on the pill when he impregnated her.
Burke has launched a blog where she can keep tight control on her media coverage (and offer up booking slots, incidentally). She has recently responded to reports of golddiggerishness:
Golddigger? Don't Think So: One of the comments that has really bothered me is having been repeatedly called a "gold-digger." I can't tell you how far from a gold-digger I am. I wish there was a reporter finding out how I've never dated a rich man in my life. I've always wondered how girl friends of mine could even ask their boyfriends to buy them clothes. Anytime I have been out on a date I've always offered to pay at least a portion or leave a tip. I never in my life would have planned a pregnancy for money!
When I found out I was pregnant I was scared like any other single female would be. I didn't jump for joy because I "hit the jack pot", I cried my eyes out and started adjusting my future plans in my head. My goals and aspirations were completely different the second I saw the E.P.T. results. Not once did I ever think about the money side of things. I thought about how I was going to be an amazing mother & that without a doubt is all that matters. [Samantha-burke.com]
In addition to the baby-bump-nestled-in-bikini-pictures, what's really titillating is the marketing acumen on display. Case in point, her latest posting:
Its funny how a baby's kick is so comforting. I won't forget the first time I felt more than butterflies. It was her first full-on kung-fu kick! I was home alone and it was about 11pm so I couldn't exactly call anyone to share the news with. I cried with joy, then cried some more when it hit me that I had nobody to share that moment with. But its funny how anytime I felt alone she would suddenly kick me really hard like she was reminding me, "Hello, you're not alone silly, I'm right here!" It never took long for a cry to turn into a laugh thanks to little Sophia.
Is it just us, or do you, dear readers, smell a reality television series pitch in the make?
