Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

I don't know if Vince Shlomi -- the ShamWow pitchman who met a hooker at Louis at the Gansevoort and took her to his room at the Setai, where she promptly tried to bite his tongue off and he responded with a few blows to her face -- ever really had much a positive reputation in the first place, but after that incident, some rebuilding is in order. 


So, whom did he hire to mastermind the PR behind his comeback? Lizzie Grubman, the rich, bleach-blond Manhattan PR maven who once plowed her Mercedes SUV into a crowd in the Hamptons while she allegedly screamed, "Fuck you, white trash!" 

Never mind the fact that this is all very weird, but why does a guy who's job it is to basically do PR for a fancy towel need to hire his own PR person? 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
