I know, it's a bummer.
Especially if you started reading the magazine when it first came out and know that back then, this would've been the most preposterous idea ever.
But that's not what I want to say.
The angle of the story is "She's super smart! She's in on the joke!", and I know that I'm supposed to read it and then go, "Wow, I've been so wrong about this woman. I shall never speak ill of her again" and then rainbows and unicorns come out and we all live happily ever after.
But the truth is that the fact that she is "smart" is the problem.
Because being "smart" and dumbing herself down for money and public adoration is absolutely ridiculous. Being "smart" and palin' around with people like Joe Francis of Girls Gone Wild fame is downright offensive.
I think I'd rather she be stupid because at least then I could say, "she doesn't know any better"; but since they want us to believe that she DOES know better, I'm gonna have to go ahead and say that this was an absolutely EPIC FAIL for all involved.
