Katrina ravaged New Orleans provides free publicity for Hollywood "Do-Gooders"!!!
08 Sep 2005
Katrina ravaged New Orleans provides a free stage and free publicity for Hollywood "Do-Gooders"!
Hollywood Celebrities have quickly taken note of the hurricane catastrophe in New Orelans especially all the free publicity to be had by simply flying their private jetsd down there and mingling with the victims.Of course they wouldn't even be mingling with these beat-up hurricane survivors if they (like Opra, John Travolta,Sean Penn etc) ) didn't have their personal camera crews with them to record their shot at deep empathy and compassion for the ravaged and dispossed.ITs becoming somewhat of a Hollywood Celeb Feeding Frenzy!

Noticable too is all the celebs are wearing casual clothes to the "event" like jeans and t-shirts instead of Armani and Versache.Is it to show their humility or did thier public relations agents advise them it wouldn't look all that good or humble to schmooze with torn up,forlorne hurricane victims in their designer duds?

Opra even had her hair slicked back which with her blue denim shirt gave her that "prisoner in the big house" look which I guess made her being there with her camera crew more legit? Opra even managed to wipe an invisible tear away just as she cut to a commercial! Who knows maybe the next thing we'll see is the Tonight Show's Jay Leno in New Orleans "hamming it up" (which is his singular forte) with some of the dead,floating bodies? Maybe he can even get some of his fellow celebs to sign some of those "prop" corpses. Hey its great publicity and also it would surely give those anonymous,bloated bodies some real market value too! God Bless America!

Thank God (and Hollywood?) for Hurricane Katrina....otherwise it was going to be a pretty dull fall television season!
