Sarah Jessica Parker Repeats Herself

elle_august_sarah_jessica_parker.jpg

Sarah Jessica Parker, or her publicist, is so environmentally aware, she even recycles anecdotes. In the August Elle:

Coty Prestige exec Catherine Walsh, who works with SJP on her ever-expanding collection of perfumes, tells this story about the star to Elle’s Maggie Bullock:

“I used to send her weekly ratings [for Lovely],” says Catherine Walsh…”When they dropped, she would say, ‘Oh my gosh! Do I need to go to Dadeland Mall and make a personal appearance?’”

In the October 2006 Marie Claire:

“When we launched,” says Walsh, “we started to send her sales reports weekly, by store. She would read them, and if we weren’t in the top three names, she’d e-mail me and ask, ‘Is there something I need to do? Do I need to go there?’ I mean, who does that? Even I don’t do that! Carlos and I just looked at each other and said, “She’s really going to go to Macy’s in Dadeland, FL, because we’re number nine there?” She just puts you to shame.”

Glossed Over puts us to shame because they actually read this junk.
