Lizzie Grubman Reps ShamWow Guy

Hoping to prove once again that America loves a comeback, Lizzie Grubman is representing the new and improved Vince Shlomi, born Offer Shlomi, also know as Vince Offer, a.k.a. SlapChop ShamWow pitchman, and prostitute patron.

Grubman ushered Shlomi to Fashion Week to build buzz for the launch of his presumably very absorbent swimwear line. She threw in a trip to Jay-Z’s concert, AND a visit with the cast of “The Beautiful Life,” plus shipping & handling.

The Daily News GateCrasher explains that she doesn’t judge her new client for his indiscretions, because c’on, she can’t do this all day.

Shlomi was arrested on felony battery charges for punching a prostitute in February. She bit his tongue and wouldn’t let go.

Charges were dropped, the ShamWow company Permission Interactive kept him, and here we are. There has been so much news involving infomericals I can’t catalog it all. Slankets, Snuggies, the Discovery Channel show PitchMen, the untimely death of Billy Mays, and now this.

Till the swimwear arrives, enjoy DJ Steve Porter’s Jam Wow again:
