Attorney Has 'Scoop' on Herself
What's the expression? Any publicity is good publicity? That must explain why self-proclaimed celebrity attorney Vicki Roberts issued a press release today outing herself as actor Gary Busey's companion during his now notorious appearance at this year's Academy Awards ceremony. Just this week, Busey apologized for his behavior during the pre-awards red carpet broadcast, when he repeatedly interrupted host Ryan Seacrest and embraced a surprised Jennifer Garner.
Roberts, Busey's attorney, accompanied him that evening, but apparently was not happy with her lack of recognition, even though she is visible in the video as the "woman in the green dress." Her press release is titled, "Oscar Scoop! The Woman in the Green Dress Identified," as if we have been on the edges of our sofas ever since wondering over her identity. Her press release boasts:
Vicki Roberts was on hand to witness up close and personal the most exciting red carpet moment of the evening, which included Mr. Busey's gracious greeting of Academy Award nominee, Laura Linney (The Savages), and awkward exchange with Ryan Seacrest (American Idol) and presenter, Jennifer Garner (Juno). On the now legendary videotape, Vicki Roberts is seen exchanging greetings with Garner and is then introduced to Seacrest by Gary Busey.
Clearly, Roberts adheres to the PR school that teaches, "I don't care what the newspapers say about me as long as they spell my name right."
