Zsa Zsa Busted for Whoring Clooney [UPDATED]

This is too funny:

Oscar-winner George Clooney may make politically provocative films like “Syriana.” But he doesn’t write politically provocative blogs.

So imagine his ire when [tag]Arianna Huffington[/tag] used some of his recent answers to political questions in a way that makes it look as if he wrote one for her [tag]Huffington Post[/tag] blog site.

What? Georgie didn’t actually write this shit?[update: it’s been yanked] I wasted two precious seconds of my life snarking a piece of “fake but accurate” blogging?

“He doesn’t object to the quotes,” says Stan Rosenfield, Clooney’s valiant rep. “He said those things and those are his views. Arianna asked for permission to use the quotes and he gave it to her. What he didn’t give permission for was the use of his quotes without source attributions to make it appear that he wrote a blog for her site. Which he did not. When he saw the posting Monday, we called and asked her to make the change, to simply attribute the quotes and make it clear that he did not write a blog. But she refused. And it’s now Wednesday.”

So it turns out that the post, which was presented as an entry by über Hollywood liberal Clooney over at Zsa Zsa’s House of Preening Asshatted Moonbats, was actually snippets of interviews Zsa Zsa doctored up to make it look like there were actual fabulous famous people posting over at her loony bin–as she had promised when she rolled out her junk–instead of merely a pack of C and D level (or totally unknown) whacked-out [tag]moonbat[/tag] hacks.

Rather than keep waiting, [tag]Clooney[/tag] got pro-active and issued this statement:

” Miss Huffington’s blog is purposefully misleading and I have asked her to clarify the facts.

I stand by my statements but I did not write this blog. With my permission Miss Huffington compiled it from interviews with Larry King and The Guardian. What she most certainly did not get my permission to do is to combine only my answers in a blog that misleads the reader into thinking that I wrote this piece. These are not my writings – they are answers to questions and there is a huge difference.”

Dahhling! You are SO busted!

I’m guessing Zsa Zsa just got her ass banned from the “fabulous people” party lists for the forseeable future.

UPDATE: Arianna, spinning as fast as she can.

I hope she realizes that her “explanation” means no one is ever gonna believe postings at her joint under a “name” contributor’s byline–whether actor or politico, and every “celeb” tier in between–should be considered anything more than crap scribbled and submitted by a PR flack, since she’s admitting she’s got no problem running that kind of thing and making believe it’s real.
