Here's a press release forwarded to Fake Jane today:
For Immediate Release:
New York Plastic Surgeon to Save Hampton's Real Estate Market
Park Avenue Plastic Surgeon Stephen Greenberg is announcing the Hampton's Plastic House in which for a half a million dollars, a lucky consumer can get a summer mansion in Hampton's with a season full of lipo, new boobs and hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of treatments including, a full time nurse and chauffeur to take you back and fourth to the hospital for surgery. He will also throw invites to celeb parties and a new summer wardrobe for the changing.
I thought this was a prank, especially since the release actually used the words "new boobs." It is not a prank. I spoke by phone with the guy doing PR, Sid Schwartz, who says this is absolutely serious. Dr. Greenberg has a home in the Hamptons, but that's not the one he's renting out.
Schwartz says the home some "lucky consumer" can rent would normally go for well over $100,000 for the summer--so you're getting about $350,000 worth of surgery, goods, party offers, and clothing. "Everything from Versace to Gucci...a maid, a chauffeur," Schwartz said. I asked which "celeb parties" the renter would get into. "There are like a million galas," Schwartz said, including Diddy's annual bash and Kelly Ripa's.
By the way, Schwartz says he's also the PR guy behind yesterday's item on Lindsay Lohan being sued by a New York City college student who claims LiLo took her $12,000 mink coat and kept it for over two weeks. WHAT IS A COLLEGE STUDENT DOING WITH A $12,000 MINK COAT?
Hey, maybe they'll throw that in if you rent the place in the Hamptons.
