There’s a larger, shockingly obvious reason that Harry Hamlin’s costume causes controversy, and it’s sad I’ll have to map it out, since you’d think adults would act as such. There’s no humor associated with a symbol that represents one of the most painful times in our history. Yes someone else wore it and it’s simply a costume, but that doesn’t make it right. I realize Hamlin doesn’t advocate it’s intention, but that’s irrelevant. Wearing such a wretched image also keeps it in our consciousness, decensitizing society to its horror. I’d say the same about the use of the N word (in any context, no matter who speaks it) and to the use of black face. We should know better. And lastly, I am Jewish. That either makes me a biased observer or uniquely qualified to comment. You decide.
Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin have officially proven why they quit acting in favor of reality television. While promoting their new reality show, Harry Loves Lisa, Hamlin answered his cell phone mid-interview, to reveal that their clothing store, Belle Gray, had been robbed. Lisa feigns shock, in what might be the worst acting job I’ve ever seen. My guess is that their store was actually robbed recently, and they thought it might be good for their show to act as if the robbing occurred during the interview. After all, isn’t it defamation to mention a security company by name as being “terrible?” But then again — all press is good press. Watch below.
