Drum roll, please...
On sale NOW at bookstores near you:
A book, huh? Is it just stuff you already put on the Web site?
Nope, we wrote the whole thing fresh, just for you. We made up a bunch of awards to hand out to the worst and dimmest in celebrity fashion and style. And Thank God we did, because without the Golden Globes this year, we need to fill the void in our hearts somehow, even if the statuettes aren't real.
What's it about?
Well, here's what the back cover says:
Hailed as "the meanest queens in the cafeteria" by the Village Voice and "viciously funny" by The Hollywood Reporter, Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan entertain 3.5 million unique visitors every month via GoFugYourself.com. Their smart, scathing dressing-down of fashion disasters has become a media sensation, with Time dubbing their website one of the fifty coolest blogs and Entertainment Weekly tagging it as one of the staff's twenty-five favorite sites on the Internet.
Now, with The Fug Awards, Heather and Jessica hand out honors such as the Sag Award for most egregious misuse of breasts and the Tanorexia Award for the person most addicted to bronzer. They prove that having an unlimited budget and a coterie of hangers-on is no barrier against committing glaring, eye-stinging sartorial missteps.
No celebrity, no matter how respected or revered, is beyond their reach. Not merely cutting, but also genuinely witty and slyly perceptive, The Fug Awards is celebrity schadenfreude at its hilarious best.
So... you know, it's about that.
Woo! Where can I find it?
Are you doing any book signings?
If we are, we'll post the details here, so peek back every so often and we'll have the details. As ever, thanks for supporting the blog -- without you guys, we wouldn't have had this extremely fun, richly rewarding opportunity to put together a book. We sincerely, deeply hope you enjoy it.
