People we’d never take PR advice from…

Planit Agency

Monica Lewinski wants to go into PR. Planit’s PR department isn’t threatened, just deeply, deeply concerned.

It’s been awhile since Monica Lewinski crossed my radar, not that I’ve missed her much, but I just got wind (via the Daily Mail, so take it with a grain of salt) that the former “friend” of Bill is looking to launch a new career in PR. Yes, you read that right, Capitol Hill’s Most Notorious Intern is toying with the idea of starting her own public relations company. I don’t know about you, but I’m not so sure I’d want to pay for Monica’s PR prowess seeing as how she got her fame for all the wrong reasons. Nearly 20 years later she’s still a walking punch line. But for argument’s sake, I could see the appeal one might see in hiring Miss Monica to dole out public image advice. I mean: It takes a PR disaster to know one, right?

Whatever the case, this little rumor got me thinking about who else I would add to my list of People I’d Never Take PR Advice From. I checked in with my fellow PR Planiteers and here’s who we came up with, in no particular order:

Balloon Boy’s dad BP Chris Brown Lindsay Lohan (or her parents, Michael and Dina, for that matter) Anthony Weiner Jesse James Charlie Sheen Gary Busey Mel Gibson Jon and Kate, but we’d take it from their Plus 8 The Bachelor’s Vienna Russell Edgington, former vampire king of Mississippi (for all you non-True Blood fans, he ripped out an anchorman’s spine on live, albeit fake, television)
