SF Mayor's Wife In Terrible Awesome Sexy Movie
Ha ha ha oh lordy. The mayor of San Francisco, the guy who loves gay marriage so much but insists on repeatedly marrying women, is currently married to an actress. She stars as a call girl in, if the trailer is any indication, one of the worst pay-per-view movies of all time. It features such winning lines as, "I'm all for sex. Love? Love is for fools." She was better in that little walk-on role (also, coincidentally, as a call girl!) on Mad Men. UPDATE: One of the movie's co-writers contacted your Wonkette and offers a convincing and pleasantly good-humored defense of the film!

just read your post on jen siebel's new movie, the trouble with romance. i'm actually one of the co-writers of the film (though i'm by no means a spokesperson for it), and i just wanted to say
I'M GOING KICK YOUR F**KING ASS! I WANT YOU OFF THE F**KING SET! YOU AND ME? WE'RE F**KING DONE PROFESSIONALLY!!!!
just kidding.....i've been waiting all week to figure out where to fit in a christian bale tirade. unfortunately it's waaay played out already.
ANYWAY, i'm not writing to whine about bad press or anything. but i did want to let you know that this was a very low budget indie that a lot of people did as a labor of love. the movie was probably made for less than the cost of megan fox's third assistant on Transformers 2. all i ask is you do me one small favor, rent the movie. watch it. and if you hate it as much as you thought you would, i'll send you the money for the movie and a box of microwavable popcorn to make up for it (the popcorn is negotiable, if you want to substitute for another not-too-expensive gift...afterall, this movie was done on a budget) even if you don't write about it, at least give it a shot.
if films like this don't get the opportunity to see the light of day, we'll just get more michael bay movies. we don't want to go there.
Done and done, Mike! We will do this as soon as we can figure out how to work the pay-per-view, and then we will send a review to the hot Slate ladyblog XX Factor free of charge.
