Adding Up Some Twitter Celebrity Endorsement Math

In the heyday of Internet email marketing, a one to three percent “click-through” rate was considered acceptable. Today, with Twitter offering an instantaneous version of the e-mail blast, how does the service compare? Especially when celebrity accounts with large follower counts are doing the blasting?

AP business writer Christina Rexrode has a rare, specific answer today. After leading with examples such as Snoop Dogg and Tori Spelling, she passes on some intriguing info from the client side:

Dan Smith, vice president of marketing for the website CampusLIVE, which helps advertisers connect with college students… paid Lindsay Lohan about $3,500 for one tweet with link: ‘These challenges for college kids on #CampusLIVE are SO addicting!’

The post to Lohan’s 2.6 million fans drove about 4,500 clicks to the website, Smith said. But he also said he wasn’t sure if he’d use her again…

Playboy Pays Lindsay Lohan $1 Million to Pose Nude

Posing nude might not be the best career choice for Lindsay Lohan. Hell, it’s probably not the best life choice. But she could be doing something much worse.

According to TMZ, Playboy magazine is paying the poster child for poor decisions about $1 million to pose nude, and Lohan’s shoot began over the weekend.

Though Lohan’s rep said, “I can neither confirm or deny at this time” when asked about the deal, how many of you are thinking that this isn’t true? If you don’t think this is happening, please Google “Lindsay Lohan,” and read up. Posing nude for Playboy might end up being the most sane thing she’s done in quite some time.

Lindsay Lohan to Appear Nude in Playboy

And the former child star doesn’t come cheap. TMZ is reporting that Lohan will receive something more than Hef’s original $750K offer, but less than her million dollar asking price. Shooting for the nude spread reportedly started over the weekend.

There’s no news on when the pictorial will appear, and neither Lohan’s reps nor Playboy have confirmed the deal. But they haven’t denied it either. And LiLo could probably use the money. She has worked very little in the last couple years, and all those lawyers don’t come cheap. News broke Monday that Lohan had fired her business manager over concerns that “her finances to were beginning to slip through the cracks.”

What do you think, readers? Will you pick up a copy of the issue? Me, I’d buy the mag in a heartbeat if it featured a redheaded LiLo. But another bottle blonde? Nah.

LiLo Blames Media For Community Service Tardiness

Oh, Lindsay …

Less than 24 hours after a judge revoked Lindsay Lohan‘s probation and ordered her to  community service at the Los Angeles County morgue, the actress arrived late Thursday and was sent home.

The scapegoat for Lohan’s late arrival?

The media, of course.

“Her lateness was due to a combination of not knowing what entrance to go through and confusion caused by the media waiting for her arrival,” said Lohan’s publicist Steven Honig in a statement. “Lindsay spoke with the supervisors at the morgue. They showed her how to get in, and everything is all cleared up.”

Wouldn’t the “confusion” caused by the media help point Lohan in the direction of the entrance? Don’t blame the media for your shortcomings.

Nov. 2 can’t get here soon enough.

TV Reporter Sara Edwards Still Misses Boston

After many years working in Boston for outlets such as WHDH-TV and CN8, Emmy winning entertainment reporter Sara Edwards (pictured) moved back last year to her native Pasadena. She has since freelanced for Extra and NBC Los Angeles, in the latter case suffering through the Lindsay Lohan shoplifting trial.

In a recent Boston magazine blog post, the UCLA grad confessed she still misses Boston and thus makes sure to catch any Hollywood movie featuring scenes shot on location in Beantown. She also shares an interesting POV articulated to her by Boston native (and former Fear Factor host) Joe Rogan:

Maybe Rogan said it best when he told me that breaking into entertainment in LA was easy for Bostonians, thanks to their street smarts and keen senses of humor. Dealing with laid back Angelenos was like “leading lambs to slaughter,” laughed Rogan.

Motown Tries to Make Sense of Prospective Pistons Owner

Peter Guber may soon have a Hollywood hardwood doppelganger. Joining the Golden State Warriors co-owner within the NBA team owner ranks will soon be, by all accounts, Platinum Equity billionaire Tom Gores (pictured).

In honor of today’s second biggest sports story (behind the forced retirement of Manny Ramirez), the Detroit Free Press has republished a February 13th profile of Gores by sports reporter Vince Ellis. It offers some interesting hints as to how the LA magnate may be perceived in Motown as proprietor of the Pistons:

Maybe you’ve never heard of potential Pistons buyer Tom Gores. But if you think he would be one of those anonymous business owners who never, ever make news, think again: he bankrolled a slasher film starring Lindsay Lohan.

Jackie Chan is Alive and Well

Action star Jackie Chan is the latest celebrity to fall victim to an online hoax reporting his death. ‘RIP Jackie Chan’ became a hot trending topic on Twitter, with some on social media sites going so far as to report the cause of death was a heart attack. Like Johnny Depp, Lindsay Lohan, and Russell Crowe before him, Chan had the opportunity to view the twittersphere mourn his passing while he was very much alive.

In order to reassure his fans, a message was posted on Chan’s Facebook page announcing his status among the living:

The lesson here is don’t believe everything you read — especially on Twitter.

Latest TMZ Departure Perpetuates ‘Male Zone’ M.O.

Last Friday, March 4th, senior producer Vania Stuelp‘s return stint at TMZ came to an end when her contract was not renewed. Word is that Stuelp (pictured) and Harvey Levin didn’t exactly always see eye to eye, despite the fact that – as previously reported by FishbowlLA – she has the same attorney as Lindsay Lohan (!)

TMZ remains very much a male-run enterprise. This is certainly not unusual by Hollywood standards, except that in TMZ’s case, the lack of women in senior management stands in stark contrast to the Burbank ranks of parent company Telepictures.

TMZ Producer Works Both Sides of Tabloid Trench

The original item appeared on TMZ.com January 27th, 2010. Under the headline “Brawl in LA Court”, the gossip website outlined how one of their former employees – Vania Stuelp (pictured) – was involved in a scuffle with a bailiff in her new role as public information officer for the LA County court system.

Stuelp has since returned to the TMZ fold. The irony is that at the time, the senior producer was trying to confiscate a videotape from a French TV crew after they had filmed, against her orders, reality TV star Alexis Neiers (Pretty Wild). That’s when bailiff Ronald Cabrera intervened and, allegedly, roughed her up.

Per Stuelp’s current complaint, she is seeking punitive damages for assault and battery, negligence and the emotional distress of being humiliated and handcuffed in front of a crowd of onlookers. She is represented in this case not by Harvey Levin but rather Shawn Chapman Holley of Santa Monica firm Kinsella Weitzman Iser Kump & Aldisert.

Lydia Hearst-Shaw Will NOT Be Playing Lindsay Lohan

In the midst of the controversy surrounding the Lindsay Lohan-inspired film project Dogs in Pocketbooks, Lydia Hearst-Shaw signed on to her Twitter account to clear up rumors of her involvement. Producer/writer Charles Casillo told NY Post‘s Page Six that Hearst-Shaw would be playing the lead in the film, but according to the publishing heiress that simply isn’t true.

More and more Casillo is sounding like a fellow with some serious delusions. Whatever prompted the NY Post to take him seriously in the first place?
