Chrissy Iley and a crucial misspelling
Prolific celebrity interviewer Chrissy Iley will be most displeased: the Conde Nast press office has put out a press release for Glamour’s September issue and misspelt its star writer's name as "Chrissey". Oops. Iley is very sensitive about the spelling of her name and has been known to render her mobile phone inoperative as spittle bungs up the mouthpiece during punitive rants at incompetents. Her Jessica Biel interview in Glamour is a bit of a simpering non-event, alas, and hardly warrants any attention. She can’t even get the actress to talk about boyfriend Justin Timberlake, so she irrelevantly inserts his name here and there in the way potpourri, strategically placed, is intended to sweetly scent the stale. On the other hand, Biel admits she thinks that gawping at the universe from an observatory in Las Vegas most romantic – she has a fondness for “huge telescopes”. I shall look for a naked Justin pic to see what the fuss is all about.
