Hot People Don't Read???
This morning on my way to work, I was listening to this morning show and they were asking their peeps this question, "Why do hot people NOT read?"
Just because Jessica Simpson doesn't know the difference between chicken and fish and is obviously not well read, as she only answers pre screened questions in interviews (so I've heard, but that could be false) and some people (my husband) would consider her "hot" doesn't mean all attractive people are allergic to the literary word. I mean, really!
Kelly Ripa, people!
I know lots of people that are considered "hot" and also enjoy spending a rainy Sunday curled up with a book.
And while I'm not a super model or anything, I know I clean up pretty good and I have what amounts to a library in my house. I took serious offense. So because I'm a card carrying reader (not really) I'm not considered attractive? WTH?
Does this bias really exist? And why the hell would they put it on the radio if it doesn't?
I was left flummoxed.
