Actress Raquel Bailey really wants a part in Tyler Perry’s next flick. She spent her “last money” ($1,500) for this billboard, which is conveniently located right near Perry’s Atlanta studio. Well, that’s one way to land an acting gig. Certainly not the conventional way. When I was an actress, I used to have to go on a buttload of auditions, just like all the other hopefuls. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if Bailey’s casting strategy works. Maybe Perry will see the ad and call her in for a reading. And if she lands a part, she won’t have to pay a cut to an agent.

This is a picture of workers repairing a digital billboard in Times Square, but I have to admit at first glance I thought it was an ad for a new kind of mascara that replaced the traditional brush with a team of tiny men who carefully colored and defined each lash. Hopefully Maybelline research and development will pounce on this idea ASAP.
Meet George Mauer. Depending on how you look at it, he’s either got really great friends or a bunch of the worst buddies on earth. His “friends” paid for a billboard in New Orleans that calls him “the New Orleans Lover,” and describes him as both loving philosophy and hating cheap alcohol. Has it really come to this, George?

Not only might Phillips be a married man, but he is also the co-president of a company called Oracle and a member of Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board.

So many men, so little time. Well, at least that’s a divorce lawyer’s motto. Corri Fetman, who handles Chicago’s romantic splits, has put up a billboard even more controversial than a pre-nup. Sandwiched between two half-naked models, the tag line reads, “Life is short. Get a divorce.” While some hopeless romantics in town find the billboard offensive, Fetman, an arguing professional, defends herself, saying, “Just because you see a billboard with a hot body on it, it doesn’t cause you to leave your spouse… If you’re already going to leave your spouse, the ad will appeal to you.” Yeah, if a billboard can break your marriage up, that’s probably a big enough sign that you should get a divorce.
