OMG you guys. I just got a facebook message from alert and astute mockdocker Laura Zigman, who as you may recall is the famous author who wrote the book that the movie Someone Like You was based on, which starred our arch nemesis Ashley Judd, and you will NOT EVEN BELIEVE how much Ashley thinks of herself today.
If you’re a reader of my sister site, you know that Ashley Judd is now enrolled in a Master’s program at Harvard – where she’s going to study Public Adminstration, presumably to eventually run for office, at which point obviously the world will end. I have no doubt about this. Anyway, according to this, she’s not comfortable simply enrolling in the program like a regular person, because she apparently believes she’ll be mobbed by throngs of unwashed masses.
The article, which is kind of fabulous in its totally eye-rolling tone, says that Ashley has asked university officials to “take additional measures to ensure her privacy while studying” at the school. The program director sent out an email blast outlining the steps that have been/will be taken to make sure Ashley isn’t bothered by any commoners. They have put a privacy block on her student file, they have arranged for security detail to be present during any class coffee breaks just in case anyone from the “public” should attempt to talk directly to her, and the student body has been instructed on how to respond to inquiries about Ashley: ‘‘Simply turn the line of questioning back on them by asking who they are and what the purpose is of their query and contact security immediately to have them escorted off the premises if they are here inappropriately,’’ the email said.
Lastly, the program director explained that all media calls should be directed to Ashley’s publicist, who, according to the article author, isn’t answering any questions anyway.
Now, let me ask you this: If Ashley Judd was so hell-bent on having her privacy respected during her studies, why in the holy hell did she have her publicist ANNOUNCE TO THE ENTIRE WORLD last week that she was going to enter the Harvard program to begin with?
And if all of this weren’t bad enough, your co-mockdocker and famous author Laura Zigman now has to share her hometown with Ashley, and risk seeing her at Harvard Square.
Condolences for Laura may be left in the comments.
