Page Six today has an item about Ryan Phillippe hiring and firing his new publicist, Michael Sitrick, within a matter of hours over some fictional quotes that he fed to In Touch magazine. No biggie, it happens. What we find interesting is the graph in which the column lists other clients who have hired Sitrick.
Sitrick is a spin doctor whose clients have included Halle Berry (a hit-and-run problem), artist Peter Max (tax evasion), R. Kelly (accused of statutory rape), lawyer Terry Richardsen (a wiretapping charge) and supermarket billionaire Ron Burkle.
Noticeably missing from the list is why Burkle needed to be spun. We’re sure leaving this information off was just an oversight.
