OMG! Book him! John Edwards returns to Public Speaking: $65,000 a gig!

Edwards to return to public speaking Submitted by jane Stancill on August 28, 2008 - Tags: Former Sen. John Edwards, who disappeared from public life after admitting he had an extramarital affair, is scheduled to speak in October at the University of Illinois.

University spokeswoman Robin Kaler today said a student group at Illinois had booked Edwards to speak on campus Oct. 14 on "The American Dream," the Associated Press reports. Tickets are free; the student group is paying Edwards $65,000.
The group gave an Edwards' representative the chance to cancel the appearance by the former presidential candidate. "The agent responded that (Edwards) is adding to his calendar, and that the fee has gone up,” Kaler said, declining to identify the agent. ***
The university said the couple's booking agency -((( it is the The Harry Walker Agency - did not say why Elizabeth Edwards had canceled Hofstra University Sept 8th )))) Edwards is making other public-speaking appearances, according to AP. He and his wife, Elizabeth, are scheduled to speak next month at Salem State College in Massachusetts, said spokesman Jim Glynn. The appearance was booked before Edwards' admission of his affair with a former filmmaker hired to work during his campaign.

Message to Madonna: Menopause is coming!


Read this piece and let me know if she shouldn't just do a "Garbo" and just...dissappear. Go out on top.

Amid a four-act show at Cardiff's packed Millennium Stadium, a video interlude carried images of destruction, global warming, Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, Zimbabwe's authoritarian President Robert Mugabe - and U.S. Senator John McCain. Another sequence, shown later, pictured slain Beatle John Lennon, followed by climate activist Al Gore, Mahatma Gandhi and finally McCain's Democratic rival Barack Obama.
The rest of the show had the usual Madonna fixtures: sequins, fishnets, and bondage-style outfits drawn from the 3,500 items of clothing reportedly whipped together by 36 designers specifically for the tour.
